Hey people,I am back with yet another review on a sample-sized product – Nyassa Vanilla & Dry Fruit Luxury Bar.
I received this cute little soap in my Mar’13 Vellvette Box.
Price: INR 400 for 150 g. (Full size)
This compact bar came wrapped in a transparent plastic sheet with labels on either side displaying details on the product.
What the product claims:
A delectable vanilla fragrance, rich & creamy with real figs, cashews, almonds and pistachaio. Great for your soft skin. Sweet almond oil is a excellent emollient for the skin . Shea butter helps to you keep your skin clear & smooth.
The way I see it:
The soap was diffusing an amazing vanilla fragrance around, even before it was out of the wrapper.
The soap has a mix of vanilla & nutty fragrance.
Initially I felt the vanilla was overpowering but later felt soothing while using the bar.
One can spot various nuts like almonds & pistachios stuck on the bar – which actually up the oomph factor of this soap.
Those nuts stuck are practically of no use & tend to wither off when the soap around it wanes down. So do not expect any exfoliation from them..
It didn’t make my skin super-dry as regular soaps do, but I also never felt that I can skip my body lotion follow-up.
The vanilla fragrance lingers on your skin for a while – until you apply your body lotion precisely.
But the bathroom continues to welcome you with amazing vanilla fragrance, everytime you step in.. 🙂
This sample size soap lasted a good 10 days for me. One can imagine how many days, the full size would last then.
I know that one question on your mind – how about the lather?
Yes, it lathers pretty well for a natural soap… conventional lather lovers – like me won’t be disappointed… 🙂
Overall, its a nice unisex soap that smells great, lathers well & also comes with an ingredient list that will bowl you over… 😀
Without the nuts, one can mistake it for a bar of white chocolate or some milk cake 😉
The ‘Yay’ factors:
- Amazing vanilla fragrance
- Smells natural, not of artificial flavors
- Nuts sticking on add to its good looks
- Lathers well
- Does not leave skin dry
- Did not irritate the skin
- Sample size lasts for good 10 days
- Does not melt like crazy or become gooey
- Unisex product
- Compact for travel purposes
The ‘Nay’ factors:
Price… I really don’t see myself picking a soap for 400 bucks. That’s the only thing I see for a con… 🙁
HnB rating: 4/5
I would suggest the brand (Nyassa) to continue to make this sample size or may be a little bigger and put them for sale too… so that we can try their range without biting into our pocket… 🙂
