Review: ZENUTRIENTS Soothing Green Tea Glycerin Soap

My dermatologist prescribed a glycerin-based soap which I ran out of. It’s quite expensive so I looked for alternatives that I can get at the mall. Zenutrients is first on my list. It’s one of the most well-known local brands today.

PROS:
– Affordable, 138 pesos for 100 grams
– Accessible, can be bought in Zenutrients kiosks and stockists
– Few ingredients
– Smells amazing
– Doesn’t melt easily
– Did not trigger my contact dermatitis
– Doesn’t leave film, greasy or sticky feeling
– Skin feels clean and fresh

CONS:
– None

The soap has translucent appearance like gulaman/jello. There are bits of green tea leaves on top. #Aesthetic. It’s very affordable for its size. I struggled holding it when it was new. Haha! I’m going to cut it next time. Zenutrients’ tip: keep the other half in a dry and cool place so its curing process continues. Water evaporates by doing that which makes the soap last longer.

It has few ingredients. Perfect for minimalists. My skin is unpredicatable with coconut oil which bothered me at first. Sometimes that oil is okay, sometimes it’s not. Thank goodnes this soap works for me. Now for the effects, I think it caused one or two pimples in the first week. My skin was adjusting but it did not happen again. It’s safe to use for sensitive skin. No redness and rashes. It has enough lather for my liking. No hot or heavy feeling as well. It’s not like other products where you’ll get intense heavy lather.

This did not prevent nor cause breakouts. It’s a maintenance soap for me. Overall, I like it a lot.β˜ΊπŸ‘ I’m planning to try their other variants; Pure Glycerin (for extra sensitive skin) and Turmeric & Lemon. I observed all the dermatologists I’ve consulted to recommended glycerin soap. Probably because it’s mild and moisturizing. Get this kind of base especially if you’re sensitive or scared of irritations.
