Lifebuoy Total Soap (Indian Version)

Item Description

Want something really nostalgic? Step up to Lifebuoy bath soap.

Yes, its still not being produced in the United States... and it has a different scent now.. But... This Indian version is a sleeper! A little backstory, I used to use this soap religiously when I would visit my uncle for the summer in the Philippines. I loved the old school smell and always missed the fact I couldnt find it here in America. Last week, I picked this gem up when searching for some Godrej at my local Family run Indian Grocery Store. I love the smell and the fact that it is super cheap. Give it a try if you have access to some!

Price: Super Cheap. $1.49 at my local Indian Store.

Quality: It's a no-nonsense product. Back to basics. It probably is a high quality soap in India. They advertise that is is super-antibacterial and their website is pushing the campaign for people in rural India to use lifebuoy to stop the spread of disease.

Latherability: Pretty decent. Dont expect gobs of lather, but it gets the job done.

Mositurizing: It works pretty well on oily skin, im sure there are better soaps out there. But I bought it due to being cheap and loving the smell.

Scent: Classic. Old School. Janitorial (but in a good way). This reminds me of how soap USED to smell when I was a kid. This aint no some girlie smelling soap. Not the original Carbolic scent, but I like this new version as well..

Efficacy: Cleans well. I feel sanitized after using it.

Packaging: A nice picture of a happy Indian family with a modernized "old school" Lifebuoy logo wrapped up in a glossy wrapper. Kind of small for American tastes (ala slightly bigger than a Hotel Size), but then again, if you have traveled anywhere in Asia... most soaps are this size. But this quality soap holds up longer than some American soaps that are bigger.
