I thought the packaging looked pretty chic, straightforward in design and without the arte, and it does resemble a deck of cards. Coincidentally, my friends and I have lately been addicted to playing Pusoy Dos. They call me a Silent Killer.
Meanwhile, I was curious about what the natural soap could do for my face and so I tried it in place of the foamy facial wash I usually use at night. Seeing as there was no ingredients list on the box, I assume it only consisted of argan oil and green tea, which is probably why the soap bar didn’t have a scent at all. It’s good for me, actually, being sensitive to scents.
The soap is mild as it claims, like my mild-mannered self. Although I did read that argan oil is supposedly a super potent ingredient, so I thought I shouldn’t let it lather on my face for too long. I’d also recommend using it every other day, especially if trying it for the first time.
Soap bars are pretty low-key, I soon realized. It’s like washing your hands (which you already do several times in a day)—you do it without effort, nonchalantly, almost like breathing. The fact that it’s mild and unscented also makes the cleansing step feel like a breeze.
I honestly thought that maybe this soap could work as well as for a tito, your brother, your boyfriend, or any man or low-maintenance woman in your life. It isn’t pink or super lather-y. It doesn’t have a feminine scent, either. Therefore, I consider it a very gender-neutral facial solution and probably an unofficial tita and/or tito soap.
My future plan is to leave it in the common wash area I share with everyone else in the family, and see if my brother will use it, too.
