Several months ago, I posted – no, gushed – about Tokyo Love Soaps. A very effective brand, but very expensive (I used it for medical reasons at that time). You see, I’m a wash-and-wear kind of girl, so I do my best to start with the right soap. And when I find a soap that my skin likes, I stick with it. So when a good friend, Ms. Leila Rispens-Noel, posted on Facebook about a group of women in Bansalan, Davao del Sur who are making all-natural soap from goat’s milk, I was very curious to try it out.
The first thing I noticed when the soaps arrived is that they’re very thick and they smell really good. I opened the Jellie’s Country Carrot and Goat’s Milk variant first. An interesting tidbit is printed on the label: “Made with pure fresh milk from Anglo-Nubian goats bred at the foothills of Mt. Apo.” Nice!
On my first try, the suds the soap created felt very luxuriously milky, I thought, “Mmm… this must be why Cleopatra wanted to bathe in milk!”
After 14 days of using it: I can say that for me, the soap moisturizes well, as my skin doesn’t dry out as much as it used to. I also noticed my dark spots grew whiter in just 2 weeks of regular use. The soap’s fragrance has toned down a bit, or maybe my nose just grew accustomed to the smell, I’m not sure, haha! 🙂
Just a note: I am not being paid to post this, as I ordered the soaps and paid for them myself. Also, this is NOT a clinical experiment, but a personal experience, so I can’t guarantee the results will be the same for others.
In addition to having only natural ingredients that will not harm the environment, I can also rest assured that each order helps a hardworking woman in Bansalan to support her family. Just for that, my family and I have decided that this would be our staple soap in the house. So goodbye TLS, and hello Jellie’s Country Goat’s Milk Soap!
