Hello dear people! ❤❤❤
I hope you all are doing great! 🙂
Well, do you like olives?
I am sure you do… I love them too! 😛
Olives are rich in vitamins and antioxidants which help repair damaged skin cells and fight premature aging… They also possess antibacterial and deep nourishing properties and keep the skin healthy! ❤
So, when I came across this cute little ‘olive facial bar’ by Vaadi Herbals, I knew I had to give it a try!
Today, I am reviewing the same for you all… Read on! ❤

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
Vaadi Herbals olive facial bar comes in a sturdy, olive-coloured cardboard box packaging which contains most of the necessary details about the product mentioned over it… The soap inside further comes wrapped in two layers of plastic which keep it safe and uncontaminated until it is opened for use! The overall packaging is really impressive for such an inexpensive product and the only thing that I find odd is the absence of the complete list of ingredients!
The facial bar is slightly translucent and has a beautiful olive green colour… It has a pleasant, artificial fragrance which is quite mild and wouldn’t bother the sensitive noses! 😛
This olive soap lathers quite well (though not as heavily as Lux bathing bars and other such soaps) and produces a rich, creamy foam in just 10 seconds of rubbing it in between wet palms! This makes me think that it definitely contains some amount of surfactants, most probably sulphates! 🙁
But this lathering capacity also makes the soap an effective cleanser as it washes away all the dirt, dust, oil and impurities from the surface of the skin as well as from within the pores… This facial bar leaves my skin totally clean and fresh and makes it feel soft and smooth to touch…
I have been using this soap twice daily for more than a week now. And I have noticed that with regular use it also brightens up the skin, although to a very small extent! 😀
I have a normal to slightly dry skin type right now and this soap doesn’t leave my face dry or stretchy post use! But I have observed that if I skip my moisturiser, the skin around my mouth and eyes starts to get dry and stretchy after about 4 to 5 minutes of washing my face… So, in my opinion, this facial bar would work best for people with normal to oily skin types. While for people with dry to extremely dry skin types, it may leave the skin even more dry and stretchy!
Additionally, my skin is quite prone to acne and this soap doesn’t break out my skin or aggravate the acne already present on my face… So, I feel that people with acne-prone skin types, too, can give it a try!
One interesting feature of this soap is that it doesn’t melt at all on the bathroom shelf. Thus, one bar would easily last you for a month and a half, even if used twice daily! ❤
