Coffee is one of my simple indulgences. The truth is, it feels like I am not fully awake until I have my mug of steaming hot coffee in the morning. This is the reason why I readily signed up to review the all new Casa de Lorenzo Coffee Dark and the Lemongrass Manila Castile Soaps. I am so excited to experience how my favorite pick-me-upper will do the same for my skin. I have tried other products from Casa de Lorenzo before {you may check out my review here} so I know that they have earth-friendly and good quality castile soaps and oils.

Casa de Lorenzo sent me a bottle each of these variants for review purposes. These liquid soaps are in amber-colored bottles, which help protect the quality of the soaps they contain. Why castile soaps, you ask? The name is from the Castile region of Spain where these Olive Oil-based soaps originated from.

More intrigued with Casa de Lorenzo’s Coffee Dark Castile Soap, I tried it the next day after receiving my package. This natural soap variant is made from organic ingredients like Olive Oil, Virgin Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, and combined with local ground coffee beans. It’s coffee scent is reminiscent of the local kapeng barako and the invigorating aroma wafts into the bathroom as I pour a small amount onto my shower puff. Mind you, these castile soaps aren’t as soapy as regular soaps as they do not contain thickening agents so you might want to put more onto your shower puff for more lather, which is what I did exactly! As expected, this castile soap variant comes in a very dark brown shade, but surprisingly it does not leave even a hint of stain on my shower puff and the dark tint washed off immediately after rinsing. The soap does not leave a long-lasting coffee scent on the skin, either.

Casa de Lorenzo Coffee Dark Castile Soap is ideal for those once-a-week pampering, relaxing and luxurious baths that are sure to be a delight to the senses.

Casa De Lorenzo’s Manila {Calamansi} Castille Soap

I was sent a complimentary bottle of the new castile soap variant by Casa De Lorenzo not too long ago. They were providing free samples to their valued client at the time and I was glad I was one of the  20 people chosen. I simply love using their castille soap product line having tried the peppermint and lavender variants before.

The new scent, Manila, was released in June just in time for  the Philippine Independence Day celebration. It features one of Philippines’ pride, Calamansi, mixed with Virgin Coconut Oil, Rice Bran Oil and Palm Oil. The castille soap has a very faint Calamansi scent and it was simply a joy to use. Calamansi is also known to eliminate offensive odors, so you will definitely be smelling good after every use. It also leaves the skin feeling fresh after every bath without drying it as it thoroughly cleanses and conditions it.

What won me over, apart from its refreshing Calamansi smell, is the fact that this liquid soap is 100% natural and biodegradable. No worries of getting harmful chemicals onto your skin while you keep it clean and smooth! And now that I have mentioned it, I realized this is also perfect for the little man’s use! Am going to use this on him when I give him a bath tomorrow and see how it fares on his skin.

My 250ml bottle is almost half-empty, I use it almost every day and it is quite economical to use since I only have to squirt a small amount on my wash cloth each time. A bottle, by the way, costs Php350.

Thank you Casa De Lorenzo for this delightful treat and for providing those of us who strive to be greener, safer and healthier options!  :-))
