Beauty and Bright Moringa Soap + Giveaway

What makes a good soap? For me, it has to be moisturizing with a creamy lather. It has to smell nice - never obnoxious, never chemical-y. If it has a few promised skincare benefits then great, but I'm not going to expect more than smooth and soft skin after a bath! (That's not too much to ask right?)

So lately I've been using this new bar called the Beauty and Bright Moringa Soap (P114). I love it because it fits all my qualifications for a good soap. It smells like this old peppermint and oatmeal soap I used to steal from my mom's bathroom, and that alone scores it extra points! It's been more than half a decade since I used that one. :P Other than the smell, the Moringa Soap lathers up nicely and does not leave my skin feeling tight after a shower.

Its main active ingredients are papaya enzymes, moringa extract, and kojic acid. Hmm, did I notice any lightening? I've been using the soap for almost three weeks now and I have noticed that my skin is more even somehow. It could be the Nivea SPF lotion I've been using religiously everyday (it has Vitamin C!) so that could be part of the reason, but I feel that the Moringa Soap has helped it along.

I'm not actively trying to lighten my skin ha. But my neck and knees, for instance, need some help! I will definitely continue using this soap to see if it will make more of a difference than it did already. You should read Alex's review on this soap, she also uses it on her face and she's amazed that it cleared up a nasty blemish and an insect bite.

Legs! Pantay na! Usually the upper part would be much lighter

Lastly, while the P114 price tag may be sliiiightly expensive for a local soap, it's super economical. Other beauty soaps would melt in like three to four weeks of use. This doesn't. What I did was I cut a third off the bar of soap and that's what I've been using! I haven't even finished it yet! Well it's on its last legs but still, three weeks for 1/3 of the soap is pretty good. It hasn't shown any signs of melting.

Overall, if you're looking for a soap that smells good, lathers nicely, and can help at least even out your skin, then you must give the Beauty and Bright Moringa Soap a try. :) You can buy it in their online store and in these physical locations (scroll to the bottom).

You can also check out the Serum Bar (P94) for anti-aging

I think the Moringa Soap is perfect for me after reading your and Alexa's review. I also have a nasty case of pimple marks all over my face and it would be perfect if they would clear up. I would also love it if my skin would lighten a shade or two! Plus, I love the smell of peppermint so this soap is perfect, for me at least. :)

Haven't tried this yet! I've been using Dove all my life because it's the only soap that doesn't feel drying but oh does it melt so quickly! Really curious to try this one, I hope the price is worth it!

which beauty and bright soap is perfect for you?
- i am eyeing the beauty and bright moringa soap because i want to try the goodness of moringa on my skin. i honestly havent tried any organic soap so this is the perfect way for me to finally try it. i also want that variant as i want to see if it would help me with my facial blemishes and to lighten and even out my skin. i've tried using different kinds of lightening soap but i havent notice any improvement with my skin so this one might work for me (hopefully)
if i'll be one of the lucky winners i will also share this with my mom for her to try as she loves natural made products :)

These soaps sound promising! I'm also not into trying to have a snow white skin, but I admit to using bar soaps with whitening benefits simply because I'm not blessed with an even skintone. I'm proud of being morena, but it won't really hurt to work on having an even skin that you can flaunt confidently, especially for me who prefers wearing shorts, skirts, and dresses (because I have short limbs and I look terrible in jeans!). I sure do need all the help for my legs.

While that's one of my physical flaws, there's something more that's pretty much lying on top of my concerns right now, and I want to get rid of it, pronto! I have this dark patch on my left ankle and It's not a pretty sight. It appears to be a hard and dry skin (not callous though) that has darkened, unfashionably. I have no idea where I got it, but it could probably be attributed to my bad habit of not applying lotion on my feet regularly.

I think the Beauty and Bright Moringa Soap can do something to help me get rid of this dark patch, hopefully! =)

I have this soap! And unlike other organic soaps, it's more solid. I'm a big fan of locally produced organic/natural goodies. :)

Beauty and Bright Moringa Soap is the one for me! I have read the post on The Reluctant Stylista prior to this and I was already aiming to grab a bar or two for myself to fade out my pimple scars and even out my skin tone (especially on the knees and elbows). And then this! I might get actually get 4 bars and for free too. ;)

Pwede ba yung serum bar for the face? :)

February 22, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterPaulina

Beauty and bright moringa soap would be perfect for me because like you Liz, I also need an extra help on evening out my skin (knees elbow neck UA). By the help of this soap, i believe moringa, papaya and kojic acid could do the job for me.

The Beauty and Bright Moringa Soap is perfect for me because I have skin discoloration. This may be a very unusual case but my body is quite lighter than my face (usually it's the other way around). It's the reason why I've been using makeup as of late.

I have quite a number of blemishes and acne marks that has spread to my chest and back. Add to that spots on my legs because of mosquito bites that I couldn't not stop scratching. Because of my fair/light skin tone, the marks show up as if they were intentionally drawn on by pen.

Having a number of this soap for free will come very handy. Hopefully it lightens my marks and the rest of my skin just in time for the bikini-wearing season. :)

Dove has been my soap ever since I can remember. You do look quite lighter than your older posts. I'm just a bit freaky with bacteria that I think I have to use a strong germicidal soap before I use "beauty soaps". Would that strip more moisture from my skin?

February 22, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterTin

Just followed you on Twitter. I didn't know I haven't followed you there since I follow your blog daily :)

I think the Moringa soap will work for me since I am a believer of the benefits of moringa itself.

I prefer the Beauty and Bright Moringa Soap since it covers ALL in ONE which I presently used, atleast in this one soap, I can show my knees and elbows with super confident and glow in my face.:)

February 22, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterOhms

The moringa soap is for me because I have uneven skintone and some blemishes that the soap might help fade :) you have gorgeous legs, BTW :)))

Recently, I have had this bites, I think from bed bugs, that leaves a dark mark when it heals after I scratch it (it's itchy!) and I would really like to make it disappear because it's on my forearm and it is really visible. So I really want to win the Beauty and Bright Moringa Soap. The fact that it also does not melt that easily is a plus plus! :)

This is the first time I heard about this soap, and I think its a good one naman based on the ingredients and its benefits. Plus as you've said, the scent is also good. Will check this out. :)

February 22, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMonica Santos

I have in the past tried soap other than Dove because of the "promise" only to come back to the good old Dove white soap. Its what Dermatologists recommend and I'll admit I am quite boring in the sense that that is one aspect I dont want to change in my bath routine. Thanks for the tip though!

February 22, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterManilaJen

I think the perfect soap for me is Beauty and Bright Moringa Soap because I just had chicken pox and it left nasty scars on my face and torso. I'm already panicking because it's almost graduation season. I want to look my best for the last graduation that I will attend as a teacher. This is (maybe) the last year that I will be teaching, so I want to leave memorable pictures without worrying how I look like. Thank you, Ms. Liz and Droplets of Nature! =)

@ Yana, Tin and manilajen Like you guys Dove is my staple soap. I have tried other whitening soap before but i would always go back to Dove .
Brightening and whitening soaps tend to dry out my skin and for most part the deal breaker is the scent of the whitening soap. I hate it when they smell chemical or basically doesn't smell good. The snoe soaps, i tried them but I didn't like their smell,( parang di ka naligo at bumango) so i will not be repurchasing that. I will look for this in Landmark to check the the scent and if really smell like peppermint and of good smell, will try this out.

Beauty and Bright Skin Lightening Body Soap and Anti-Aging Serum Bar sounds like the perfect variant for me. I like to start early on the anti-aging products, so to find out about soap that has those properties comes as good news. :)

I think the SERUM BAR would be perfect for me since just like you, my arms were lighter than my legs. And I guess, "anti-aging" means no more saggy skin, in which I really need because I am under diet right now and I might need that effect for my body so that there would be less saggy skins from my past body.

I would like to get a chance to win this giveaway because I want to give a shot from this soap and see if it works fine with me. ;)
