Welcome back, or if it’s your first time here, welcome to Makeup In Montana!
Today I’ll be reviewing these natural soaps from BARE by Karma Sutton.
As we all know, I’m all about natural skincare. But what makes these special is that every bar is customized per skin type. With every bar option, you can choose your skin type and get a custom soap right to your door! Did I mention how affordable these are? Only $5.50, and there are a lot of promotions as well to get a few extra bucks off. I also want to mention how beautifully these were packaged, really love the extra touch.
The idea here is that nothing is one size fits all, especially not skin, and even come with an instructional sheet informing you how often to use each soap. I was sent two bars for my very dry skin to review, so let’s get into them!
First off, the Coffee Ground with Goat Milk Soap.
The key benefits of this particular bar are as follows: (copied from barebykarmasutton.com)
- Goats Milk: Moisturizing, full of essential nutrients, and can treat acne.
- Coffee Grounds: Exfoliates, soften, brightens and tightens skin, can reduce cellulite, can treat puffy eyes, dark circles and is anti-inflammatory
- Ingredients: coffee grounds, coconut oil, palm oil, glycerin, goats milk, purified water, sodium hydroxide, sorbitol, sorbitan oleate
One side of this is very gritty, and the other is a bit more smooth, so you can kind of customize exactly how much exfoliation you get when used, 3-4 times weekly as directed.
This doesn’t have the most intoxicating fragrance, it really just smells like wet coffee grounds. But I’m totally okay with that. I love my fragrant soaps personally, but I know people with very sensitive skin prefer unscented soaps, so it’s good in my book.
This has an incredibly silky lather, very reminiscent of a castile soap if you’re familiar with them. I just lather it in my hands being sure to pick up a lot of the coffee grounds from the gritty side and apply all over my face. It isn’t terribly abrasive, so sensitive skin folks would be fine to use this.
I find that it really does hydrate and initially made my skin feel very smooth. However, something about this formula just doesn’t jive with my face. I have KP, (basically tiny bumps on my face, chest, and upper arms) and this really exacerbated that, which does happen occasionally with certain products.
However, I tried this on my body and had the opposite effect. The coffee grounds really helped with the texture of my KP and made my skin feel great. This is a miss for using on my face, but a huge hit for my body.
Next, the Oatmeal Milk & Honey.
Benefits: (copied from website)
- Goats Milk: Moisturizing, full of essential nutrients, and treats acne.
- Oatmeal: Removes dead skin cells.
- Honey: Boosts complexion, gives you glowing skin and is soothing!
- Ingredients: Oats, raw honey, coconut oil, palm oil, goats milk, purified water, sodium hydroxide, sorbitol, sorbitan oleate.
This is similar to the other soap in that the bottom layer is more abrasive specifically for exfoliation purposes.
I’ve been using this one on both my face and body, and I really enjoy it. I haven’t broken out from this, and I like the soft, silky lather of it. This is very soothing and hydrating on my face and my body.
This one has an even richer lather than the previous one, and just makes my skin feel fantastic. So if you’re someone with very dry skin on your face and body, this soap is very nourishing and my skin really likes it!
I like both of these for different reasons. The coffee grounds soap is great for my body, and the oatmeal soap works well for my face and body, but my favorite of the two would have to be the oatmeal milk and honey bar.
I strongly suggest checking out Bare By Karma Sutton and try the bars that are suitable for your skin type. They’re affordable and I love how personalized the experience really is. This is a great concept, and I’m really happy that I had the opportunity to try these out!
With that, we end today’s post. I hope you’ve enjoyed it, and if you have be sure to sign up to receive email notifications of my future posts.
