Product Review: Hand-Made Soaps by Yellow Berry πŸ›

The kind team of Yellow Berry sent me their beautiful, hand-made soaps in ‘Mango Peach Salsa’ & ‘Patchouli Vanilla & Oatmeal’ made from 100% natural ingredients a few weeks back. I’ve decided to review these miracle products on my blog as they really deserve a massive shoutout here.

πŸ”Ή PRINCIPLE INGREDIENTS: 

The ingredients for both are mentioned on the small soap tags attached to the soaps. You will notice that they are made primarily from Olive Oil, Coconut, Palm Oil, Almond and Sunflower Oil. These are food grade oils to ensure the highest quality. Olive, sunflower and almond oil are moisturising oils, while coconut is reputed to offer cleansing properties. Palm oil is added to ensure rich lather and stability to the soap. 

πŸ”Ή MANGO PEACH SALSA SOAP 

The beeswax in Peach Mango too offers moisturising properties as well as natural anti inflammation. The Paprika offers a micro exfoliation. It is rich in vitamin A that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and brightens skin tone.
πŸ”Ή PATCHOULLI VANILLA & OATMEAL SOAP 


The Patchouli Vanilla contains real vanilla seeds as well as patchouli essential oil, both hefty on the pocket. Hence the price. Patchouli essential oil has long been used to treat acne and to diminish scars. I plan to put it into my shampoos later because its got anti dandruff properties too. 

πŸ”Ή Is it suitable for my skintype?

Peach mango is a balanced bar for all skin types and can be used for the face and body.

The Patchouli Vanilla is suitable for the same.

πŸ”Ή Why hand-made soaps?

Soap that you buy at stores is more of a synthetic detergent and can contain harmful unwanted chemicals and additives, resulting in numerous skin ailments. When soap is handmade, the reaction that occurs produces ‘Glycerin’ – a byproduct that conditions your skin. Mass-produced industrial soaps are stripped off of Glycerin, while handmade soaps retain all of it. Handmade soaps are better for the environment, contain no detergents, phosphates or detrimental additives and are never tested on animals. A lot of care is put into our YellowBerry products and we think it shows.
So why not switch today from those ‘detergent’ bars to the REAL stuff?

πŸ”ΉPrices

Peach mango is for pkr 850 and Patchouli Vanilla is for pkr 900. 

The soaps are all handmade so they are priced high. Since it is not mass produced, the unit cost is much higher. Plus the artisan look and the good quality of ingredients come with the price.

πŸ”Ή What I personally think?


Well, I really don’t have anything negative to say about this soap. It’s totally worth a try. I was literally so played out because of my acne & acne-acars but I’ve felt a visible change in my skin after using it. It’s been more than a week & there’s not a single zit yet. I feel my skin has got really moisturized & supple now, thanks to a combination of oils added in it. Long thing short, I absolutely love these soaps, perfect for a soft skin and smells great too!  πŸ’•

Oh &, I had great skin (free of pimples) this eid too! 😍


πŸ”΄ NOTE: 

Keep them out of running/standing water. Since they dont have any preservatives, they wont retain their hardness otherwise.


I’m thankful to Yellow Berry for making such amazing handmade soaps. They’re doing a really good job.
