When Fuschia sent me 5 of their luxurious soaps for review, I got very very excited. Today I will be reviewing Fuschia Lemon Grass Oil Natural Handmade Soap.
About Fuschia Lemon Grass Oil Natural Handmade Soap:
Lemongrass has earned a reputation for its anti-pyretic property which reduces high fevers. Called fevergrass in some cultures the vapor is inhaled, leading to increased perspiration and eventually the complete removal of fever. Lemongrass has powerful pain relieving properties. It helps to alleviate muscle spasms by relaxing the muscles thereby leading to the reduction of pain-related symptoms. Another related benefit is for improvements in blood circulation. As an antifungal and antibacterial, lemongrass inhibits bacteria and yeast growth. It is said to be helpful in alleviating anxiety and depressive symptoms and is thus beneficial for nervous and stress-related conditions. The presence of Vitamin A in lemongrass makes it helpful for skin issues such as acne, pimples. It helps to brighten the skin and eyes and clear up oily skin thus improving acne. Lemongrass may improve poor body odor by controlling excessive sweating.
Packaging: Fuschia Lemon Grass Oil Natural Handmade Soap comes in a yellow paper cover and inside the soap is wrapped in a thin plastic.
Product: The soap is a pretty lemon yellow in colour with a translucent body and the smell is like essential oil.
My Experience: Fuschia Lemon Grass Oil Natural Handmade Soap is a pretty looking glycerin based soap. I am not that fond of the lemon grass oil fragrance though. But some may actually like it. The soap does not foam that much and I do not expect a glycerin based soap to lather also. Lemon grass oil is meant to refresh skin and has anti-bacterial properties. I am sure this soap will be best for use during hot and greasy summers.
The current weather is not that humid or sweaty so Fuschia Lemon Grass Oil Natural Handmade Soap is a bit drying for the skin right now. However, it definitely is refreshing and can immediately give a boost of energy when you are tired. The smell stays for some time. People who like the smell of lemon grass oil will like that. But I am not a fan. You will need to moisturize your skin after shower.
