I am more of a shower gel junkie than soaps. But I love using natural handmade soaps in different shapes and flavors. I shower atleast two times a day and I can shower any number of times in a day especially when I travel daily in summers. In winters, all I want is to put on a moisturizer, slip inside the blanket and have a cozy sleep. I like only chemical free soaps that doesn’t give me allergies. I am excited to present you the review of two Khadi handmade natural soaps – Mango and Ginger & Tea-tree Bathing Bars from Khadi Shop.

How to use:
Your Khadi soap lathers best when used with a natural loofah. Care for your soap and it will take care of you. We recommend these tips to ensure that your Khadi Soap gives you the best spa and lifestyle experience you could wish for. Keep your Khadi Soap in a soap dish that drains away from the direct flow of water and never sitting in water. Keep your Khadi Soap away from heat and direct sunlight.
The brand Khadi took form as a part of the freedom struggle to revive village industries, under the leadership and encouragement of Mahatma Gandhi, to provide them with the wherewithal to make their own basic needs for a comfortable life.
Today, Khadi conjures a vision of villages that stand independent all over India, as a sincere effort to make villagers wholly self-sufficient. Pure, basic goodness and a gift of nature. It is in a manner – the essence of India.
Khadi handmade soaps comes in a transparent rectangular bar form covered with a clear thin layer of plastic sheet. You can readily see what you are gonna use and the ingredients are mentioned in the label.
As soon as you open its cover, you will get a strong scent according to its flavour. In my case, one is spicy mango scent and the other tea-tree scent. When you place the bar in the holder in open the strong scent becomes subtle. I love the fragrance of these soaps and I also love that they are colourful and fun to use.
The mango soap is fruity in nature. It is perfect for summers. It instantly refreshes and energies me. The tea-tree soap is herbal in nature. It is perfect for a spa or aromatherapy session at home. The tea-tree soap has healing nature and has anti bacterial properties. The tea-tree soap is soothing and calming.I love to use these soaps in the evening /night time after I return from work. It just makes me forget about my tiredness and I feel less stressed. It helps me to fresh and relax.
The soaps lather very well especially with my loofah. The cleansing effect is also good. It get rids of dirt, oil and impurities left.
The soaps are handmade and contain natural ingredients. It is hydrating and non drying. The chances of getting an allergy is negligible. The soaps are not harsh and skin friendly. I didn’t suffer from any irritations while using these soaps.
The soaps melt, breaks into chunks, and gets consumed quickly if you dont dry it and store it properly after every use. The soaps doesn’t last more than a month may be as it is glycerine based.
I love the simplicity of Khadi soaps. It comes with an affordable price tag. The soap gets rinsed off easily and doesn’t leave behind any slippery feel. I haven’t used this soap on my face as I prefer facewash.
