I have mentioned several times before that I am a hoarder of toiletries. I hoard shampoos, conditioners, lip balms, body washes, soaps and almost all types of personal hygiene products. If you ask me what I love hoarding the most then my prompt reply will be – soaps. I love hoarding soaps the most. Even now I have five different soaps from different brands waiting to be opened. So be prepared to see more of soap reviews in the coming weeks. 😀 I am always looking out for new soaps as I want to try them all. While selecting soaps, I try to pick the ones with least amount of chemicals. The more natural the ingredients the more likely I am to use it. Biotique boasts of using natural ingredients in their product which I why I am always excited to try their products. I tried two of their soaps and here my experience using them.
Name: Biotique Bio Basil & Parsley Revitalising Body Soap
Price: ₹90/- for 150 gms
Name: Biotique Bio Almond Nourishing Body Soap
Price: ₹90/- for 150 gms
What does it claim?

The Bio Almond Nourishing Body Soap nourishes the skin leaving it soft and smooth. It also combats skin problems like ringworm, scabies and dermatitis infection.
How to use?
Gently work up a foamy lather, and rinse.
Does it fulfil its claim?
The Basil & Parsley Revitalising Body soap is a clear green soap. It did not form a foamy lather but was very gentle on my skin. I had a hard time gripping the soap as it is huge in size and semi circle in shape. The soap slipped off my hands numerous times while using it. It was a real task to use it without dropping it. It has a strong fragrance that lasts a few hours even after a bath. My skin did feel slightly refreshed and smooth after a bath but I did not notice any major change or effect on my skin.
The Bio Almond Nourishing Body soap is clear orangey-yellow in colour. This soap too does not lather much and is difficult to grip because of its huge shape and grip less shape. It does not have a strong fragrance like the Basil & Parsley soap. It claims to fight against a few skin problems. However, I cannot comment on that as I do not suffer from any of those skin issues. I do suffer from body acne and though this soap did not help me reduce the acne, it also did not aggravate it like a lot of creamy soaps do. It was gentle on my sensitive skin and left it feeling soft and smooth.
What’s good about it?
Contains natural ingredients
Suits all skin types
Does not contain additives, dyes or hardening agents
What’s not so good about it?
I give Biotique Bio Basil & Parsley Revitalising Body Soap 3.5 out of 5 rating and Biotique Bio Almond Nourishing Body Soap 3 out of 5 rating. I gave Bio Basil & Parsley Revitalising Body Soap 0.5 marks extra because of its fragrance. Both the soaps are gentle on the skin and leave the skin refreshed and smooth. They fulfil their respective claims and you can certainly give it a try if you do not mind the price.
