Ever since I've learned about the benefits of malunggay or moringa, I kind of get addicted to the brand Moringa-O2. They only carry three products, Malunggay Herbal Facial Toner, Malunggay Herbal Moisturizing Lotion and Malunggay Herbal Soap.
The first product that I've tried from this brand is the Malunggay Herbal Facial Toner which I'm absolutely in love with. It's just the best toner that I've tried (so far) because aside from all of its amazing benefits, it's very kind to my skin. It didn't break me out or make my skin sensitive. In fact, it really helps in making my skin clean, moisturized and firmer. No wonder that it is a multi-awarded beauty product. I raved so much about it here in my blog and you can read it here.
Since the Malunggay Herbal Facial Toner really impressed me, I decided to try out their Malunggay Herbal Moisturizing Lotion. I've read in different blogs from top bloggers that this is a great affordable lotion that smells like the Elizabeth Arden Green Tea perfume. And when I finally bought it, I learned that yes, it really smells like that! What a fressssssh scent! :) The scent is just a bonus. What I love about it is that it has quick absorption and non-greasy benefits but it is really moisturizing.
After trying the Malunggay Herbal Facial Toner and Malunggay Herbal Moisturizing Lotion and falling in love with them, I decided to try the Malunggay Herbal Soap to see if it's as good as the first two products as well. And also because it's the only product from Moringa-O2 that I haven't tried yet.
I bought the smaller soap (60g) since I want to try it out first if it's good for my skin. It costs P50.00 from Watsons. I just purchased this soap two days ago and it was only last night that I have first tried it. Malunggay Herbal Soap is for the face and body. When I took it out from the box, I smelled it and you know what? It smells like the Malunggay Herbal Moisturizing Lotion, too but it actually smells better. I'm in love with its scent! However, the smell doesn't linger for long.
I was a little worried to use it on my face because most bar soaps can be really drying on the skin. The only bar soap that I use on my face is the Kojie San Kojic Acid Soap and yes, I love that product and it's really meant to use for your face and body. However, you'll get this tight and dry feeling after you use it so you really have to moisturize your skin after. Anyway, I only use it when I have acne problems going on on my face and then I cease from using it once my face heals.
Continuing on with the Malunggay Herbal Soap, I washed my face last night using it and it feels gentle on the skin as I rub my face in circular motion. After rinsing off the soap, I felt just a wee bit of tightening but nothing like that dry and harsh feeling that I get from the bar soaps that I've previously tried. I love it! And my face didn't feel like super matte and dry. My skin feels supple.
I've also tried it on my whole body and the effect is just the same. It's not drying and my skin is soft and smooth. BUT I still highly recommend that you apply lotion all over your body to thoroughly moisturize your skin.
So there, that's all I can say about the Moringa-O2 Malunggay Herbal Soap for now. I'll give you an update soon if it really is a good soap for me or if I should get rid of it. But so far, I'm really loving it.
Stay awesome and accomplish your mission! :)
