I swear, I think I have too much bath products inside my shower!
Oops, I just thought – like right now, that’s probably why the three-tiered glass that holds the bath products inside the shower broke down! Oh no! ( true story! )
Anyways ( regrets aside, haha! ) , I’ve got my tall bottles of body washes and shampoos on one area, and on the glass holder that became one-layered instead of three ( sniff ) , I have my baby sisters’ and dad’s shampoos, and on a soap holder there, I layer tons of organic soaps. Yes, I am such an organic soaps lover.
Two of my favorite soaps in the natural beauty products arena include Venus and Mars’ two bestselling soaps, the Lulur Soap and Royal Emu Pearl.
The Lulur Soap is designed to leave the skin clear from impurities by means of its turmeric content mixed with emu oil and tea tree and whiten the appearance through its powerful combination of arbutin, calamansi and papain. Moisturize and pamper the skin with the rest of the ingredients and you’ll sure find a noticeable and renewed skin!

Lulur. Lulur. I can go on and on pronouncing it. Muy Javanese! Haha! I also remember my sister’s favorite herb used in her dory dish – turmeric, which makes the color of the Lulur Soap that yellow. The Lulur Soap promises to keep skin clear, which is a great bet for backne or body acne sufferers. Using this, it smelled just neutrally, as I didn’t smell anything at all, and I think, after two bars, it improved my body acne as I did not have that much flareups because of this. Though after using this, a good, water-based moisturizer would be great to keep the skin softer, from the acne-clearing properties of this soap. Much love from me!
Traditionally recognized benefits of using pearl powder products include: Healing, skin brightening, anti-wrinkle, and sun protection. Other anti-aging benefits: Helps to promote cell renewal, enhance elasticity, improve circulation, calming and detoxification, protects from environmental radicals, regulates skin discoloration, and smoothes skin texture.
Pearls on the skin? Wow. With that, I feel very much like a queen. I particularly like this better than the Lulur Soap- read on why –
To be honest, I’m not really a believer of anti-aging in soaps for now, as I haven’t aged that much, and stayed loyal to one product long enough to see the effects. Leap of faith, thats what everyone should do to commit to an anti-aging routine. With the Royal Pearl Bar, the winning factor is the smell. Personally, I am totally in love with the very light and fragrant cucumber melon scent! I find myself staying in the shower longer just because I want to smell the soap! Silly me, but it’s true! Though, using this makes my skin squeaky clean in the morning, and is just perfect for a long, tiring day, the anti-aging benefits remains to be unproven, maybe, around a few more years? But I’m optimistic. My last three words about it – love.the.smell. Having emu oil as one of the ingredients also helps – it’s known to be the wonder oil of this decade, being able to heal various skin conditions, without necessarily greasing the skin!
For those who are into organic and natural beauty products, I would definitely recommend you to take a peek at Venus and Mars’ online store, as they have a wide selection of organic beauty treats, that I’m sure you will take pleasure in trying. I promise you, they’re one of the better ones!
