“I tried the lemon grass Ai-Funan soap. The soap has a lovely and clear scent. What’s good about the soap is that it is very creamy but does not leave a sticky feeling on my skin when it was washed off with water. It also did not dry my skin. I have been using this soap in the shower for a month and half of it is still left 🙂 ”

“The soap indeed is shaped and packaged very simply–one thing that I adore about eco-friendly products. It is delicate and very easy to rinse, which actually made me question its moisturizing properties. But it does not leave my skin dry at all. The Frangipani scent is nice but not very unique. Overall a pleasant experience and will continue using.”
