It seemed like a whole lot of malarkey to me and believe me, I've used the so-called miracle soap before and it dried out my skin like crazy!
Upon being offered to try the Evolle Soap Bar, which played around with a similar concept (except for the growing hair part), I was particularly skeptical. After being assured that it would not dry out my skin due to its content of cocoa butter and virgin coconut oil (common ingredients that I trust!), I gave this soap a go.
Was there a miracle? Read on.
The soap bar comes sealed in a foil packet like so... It's hardly as big as my palm but considering that I've been using it once a day everyday for over a month and it hasn't shrunk much, I'd say this small 35g bar will last you quite a bit.
It contains mineral and plant-based ingredients, which includes a trademarked ingredient called PhytoCellTec Apple Stem Cells, laminaria digitata (type of algae) extract, virgin coconut oil, cocoa butter, and of course the cult-ingredient, Helimoor clay. You can read more on what these ingredients supposedly do [here].
To use the soap, you place the bar in wet palms and rub them together to work the lather (many many bubbles!). Then, massage it all over your face and leave it on for about a minute before rinsing. The lather is light so you won't get that heavy soap feeling. My skin felt clean, soft and most importantly, not dry.
Now on to the burning question. Was there a miracle?
Not quite. My discoloration (chin area) was still there. So were my eczema patches and the lines on my forehead.
Wait a minute...
Did you notice my laugh line (nasolabial fold)? It doesn't look as deep as it did in the Before pic, does it? I can't be certain if it's Evolle's doing but I haven't changed anything else in my routine and I'm not using any line treatment products either. In fact, I was expecting to look more haggard since lately I haven't been bothered with proper skin care except for cleansing and the occasional moisturizer. Hmm...
Still, a soap is a soap. Evolle makes a decent cleanser and I'm inclined to use it every day.
Thanks to ParisB for pointing this out -- I was totally mistaken about the price! It's not RM39 for a bar. It's USD39! O_O Now, that's a pricey bar of a teeny soap! I wasn't aware that the site even shipped internationally...
Evolle soap bar is available via their online store www.evolle.com or through their authorized dealers.
