Honest encounters


This soap comes in a very similar packaging of a white soft box like most of the soaps. The soap itself is a little transparent and has a smooth texture.

The fragrance of the soap is really strong and can become overpowering. This soap lathers a little less than other soaps, despite the fact that it doesn’t foam a lot it did clean all the dirt from my skin but left my skin feeling tight. After using this soap for a few days, I noticed that it dried some pimples on my face. The soap is great for people with acne or pimples but not too great for people with dry skin.

My children enjoy the fresh smell and the feel of the soap on their skin. I love the clean smell and the clean children.

Clean, fresh and protected!

Lifebuoy Lemon Fresh bar soap is a great product for the entire family. Apart from protecting you against 10 infection causing germs, the product leaves skin squeaky clean and smelling lemony fresh all day long. I love the fact that the soap also contains honey. The 175g size soap bar retails at approximately R12 offering fantastic value for money.

I recall as a child there used to the Life Boy Red soap. It smelled awful and you could smell it on yourself for hours after you have hand a bath. Now it’s changed to different variants, The smell is more subtle. I refer the hand liquid wash to the soap
