The other day I was out shopping with my mate Liz and we had had a conversation about me being more than a little bit annoyed with spots popping up all the time and that I'm 35 years old! It was her that spotted this product for £1.29 a bar in Tesco and pointed out what it was to me and I bought it!
The soap comes in a dark green and white box. Three sides of the box appearance wise are the same and I'm told it Ayuuri Natural Neem Soap 'Suitable for oily and acne prone skin' and that it's glycine soap enriched with Neem, Tee Tree and Lemon Grass Oil and there's a picture of those ingredients shown and the weight of the soap is also shown which is 100g (and the only size this is aware to purchase in). On the back of the box other information includes being told a bit about the product, directions for use are given (Use twice daily), ingredients are listed and I'm told that it contains no artificial colours, perfume or animal preservatives and contact details for Fudco (The manufacturer of this product) are given. It looks a functional looking product rather than being pretty so it instills confidence when buying it that it will do a good job!
A Bit About The Product According To The Back Of The Box:
The Ayuuri natural skin care range is based on the traditional fruit, plant and flower extracts of Ayurvedo that have been used for centuries in India to make skin feel naturally beautiful. Enriched with Neem and Tea Tree oils, well known for their anti-bacterial properties and Lemon Grass oil to keep skin refreshed. A herbal formulation that gently removes impurities and cleanses the skin. Use regularly for a clear and radiant skin.
The Soap Itself:
Well this is a rather thick and long piece of soap really. Glycerin and hard to the touch it is a light yellow colour and clear and rounded to the ends of it. To the top of the soap the words Ayuuri Natural is engraved in there.
Smell wise, well the first time I smelt it all I could smell is lemon for the most part with a slight undertone of tee tree oil and I loved it. However take a deep inhalation when using the soap or sniff the soap block and although it has a rather zesty and citrus fresh smell there is a weird not very nice smell to it too and I think that's possibly whatever Neem is. It isn't vile but it isn't all that nice either lol.
So to use it you need to apply it of course on to damp/wet skin and you can directly use this soap on to skin, use a flannel or whatever you wish to. It lathers up a little but not loads and you can see the oils dribbling down your skin as you can see the soap melting yellow.
I find that this dried out my skin terribly and made it feel very squeeky but that feeling wasn't all that pleasant though after a while that feeling did wear off and where this soap did really help me was on my oily skin on my face. It really did brighten my skin and dragged out the oils without overly drying out my face out.
This is brilliant for those with seriously greasy skin but if it isn't greasy then don't use this for heaven's sake! My body skin is obviously not greasy enough to warrant using this on it but my face is and it excelled on my face and I have continued to use it daily. Usually after using any cleansing products on my face in the bath or shower I have to use a toner afterwards but with this I felt great! Also although I don't think the smell is totally wonderful that smell all fades as soon as you dry yourself off anyway. Yep it's a deep cleansing soap and got rid of the spots on my face overnight so I can't diss it at all so maybe this is great for teens and it lasts ages!
