Review: Reviva Labs Seaweed Soap
It is a rare occasion that I have found a bar soap that I enjoy. I typically use body washes and the like, but recently I tried Reviva Labs Seaweed Soap and it has opened my eyes.
I have never really cared for bar soap before because the majority leave my skin feeling tight and itchy. I never feel like it is moisturizing and in turn I usually think it is doing my skin a disservice. Reviva Labs Seaweed Soap is highly moisturizing and also exfoliates (which is a must for the summer months because you are showing more skin than any other time of the year) while you are using it.
One of the big differences in this bar soap vs so many others is the base in which it is formulated. Most brands use animal tallow as a base but Reviva Labs actually formulated this soap with a vegetable base of palm and coconut oils. Not only is this bar soap cruelty free but it is also all natural. All natural isn't something that I am a stickler on but it is SO nice to find a product that works GREAT and also isn't causing unknown damage to your skin.
The first time I used this soap I kept thinking of one word... Invigorating! The seaweed scrubby bits really felt WONDERFUL when I was scrubbing my body. It felt like I was finally able to scratch an itch that I hadn't been able to get to... relief and an "AHHHHH" moment for sure. When I got out of the shower that day I was in disbelief at how soft and smooth my skin felt. My husband got into the shower the next morning and he tries out whatever it is I am sampling at the moment, always something different with me! :) He said he was surprised to see a bar soap in the shower other than his usual Dial so he used it and he said "WOW" when I walked into the room. His reaction to this soap was exactly the same as mine.
Another thing I would like to mention is that this soap lathered up so well... typically with all natural products I don't see as good of a lather as others but this one was perfect! This will definitely be a staple in my bathing/showering routine for many years to come!!!
This soap retails for $4 a bar at RevivaLabs.com and is definitely worth the money! I have never been impressed with any bar soap ever before, but this one is amazing.
