Skin Care Organic Cocoon Soap Review

Skin Care Organic Cocoon Soap
Bought for: Free | Price: P180
From: Skin Care Organic

First, let me thank my Skin Care Organic Family for sending this soap over along with some skin goodies. I actually have five more soaps to review soon but for today, let me share to you my thoughts about Skin Care Organic Cocoon Soap. I know you are surprised to hear that the organic world is now infusing cocoon silk to skin care products. It is not my first time encountering an extraordinarily weird yet beneficial product--the first one is the Bee Venom. But..really, cocoon? I, myself, hardly believe it until SCO sent me one. And they are really cocoon shells! Amazeballs!

By the way, for your information, cocoon silks are known to greatly exfoliate skin, making it soft and smooth. It also stimulates skin for improved collagen production and helps wipe away wrinkles.

Claims: For acne prone skin, made with tea tree extract to fight pimple-causing bacteria and silk cocoo for mild exfoliation. Silk cocoon imparts sericin to the skin, a protein made by silk worms. It also promotes collagen production for smoother, youthful skin. A beauty and anti-acne soap in one. 100% natural soap and is handmade with love.

Ingredients: Glycerin, Organic Oils, Tea Tree Extract, Real Cocoon Silk

The first time I saw this soap, I can't get myself to use this. I mean it is just too cute to ruin. Whatcha think? I was first confused with those hollowed-out shells inside the hardened soap then I realized they are real cocoons. I actually thought they were just extracts, but we were provided with real ones so the benefits that you will get are not synthetic. I tried cutting this soap into sections, but mind you, do not try, as they are pretty hard to break. However, when you let the water sip through, you will eventually find out that it can soften as well and that's what makes it a good exfoliator especially on more sensitive parts of the face area. Obviously, there are hardened soap stuck inside the cocoons so you might want to cut the softened shells to emit the soap which you an still use.

This soap has an almost strong scent, probably because of Tea Tree Extract which is good for acne/pimple-prone skin. Luckily, this soap does not melt easily on soap dishes. It suds gently too and is non-drying. If I am not mistaken, this is the first soap nfor acne-prone skin which is not at all drying. In fact, it is so hydrating--thanks to Glycerin!

Using this soap for a period of one month, I would say that it does not really control breakouts. In fact, on my first week of use, I developed tiny bumps on the face. I hinted it was because of the Tea Tree Extract which always fails to work for my pimple-prone skin. On a lighter note, this works well for my body as it immediately gives a soft, smooth, clean and hydrated layer! Now, if your skin reacts well to Tea Tree Extract, you might want to give this a try!

'Til my next post! Happy blogging!
