The brands have been listed in a random order.
- SkinSense Natural Luxury
This is a brand I discovered late last year. I have used their body butter, a cleansing mask and these soaps. Rashmi, the founder of the brand takes out time to respond to your queries and lets you know which of the products can suit you. I ordered for the Narangi Madhu and the Agaraya Mritikayi. Narangi Madhu has a faint citrusy fragrance that makes it actually a more summer kind of a soap. Agaraya Mritikayi is a more suitable for those with an oily skin. Packed with healing glycerin, these soaps lather up really well and keep your skin soft and nourished. The best way to use these soaps is to wet the soap and rub to work up a lather and apply the lather to cleanse your skin gently.

If you have dry skin, you may need to follow up with the moisturiser or pure almond oil.
