Aster Luxury Bathing Bar - Sandalwood : Review & Price

Hi all,

You all know i'm a huge fan of soaps. So here i am introducing another lovely brand called Aster which sells luxury handmade bathing bars. They currently stock 30 variants of soaps. Today, I will review a lovely soap from the house of Aster. Read on to know how the soapaholic in me felt about this soap.

My Views on Aster Luxury Sandalwood Soap:

Aster Luxury soaps come in a plastic packaging with labels in the front as well as back. The label at the back  gives you details of ingredients, manufacture date,etc. Its a very simple and fuss free packaging, but the packaging doesn't go with the brand name. I would have definitely preferred a slightly better packaging.

The soap is semi - opaque and yellowish in colour. I'm a sucker for soaps with amazing fragrance and this soap definitely scores well in this department. Sadly, it doesn't linger on for too long... would have loved if it lasted! This soap contains the goodness of coconut oil, castor oil & glycerin... all of these are doing wonders for my skin. I think this is the perfect soap for winters or for anyone who has dry skin. 

Another amazing fact is that unlike other handmade soaps.. this doesn't melt too fast nor does it loose its shape. It lathers really well and cleanses the skin completely. 


1. Free of Parabens & Phthalates
2. Not tested on animals
3. Amazing Fragrance
4. Lathers well
5. Nourishes the skin with the goodness of coconut oil, castor oil & glycerin
6. Doesn't melt too fast


1. Wouldn't mind a better packaging

2. The fragrance doesn't last too long

Aster Luxury Bathing Bar - Sandalwood is a great soap for winters/ dry skin. Loving the nourishing effect it is having on my skin. Overall, this soap is definitely a winner in my eyes.

  1. Hey Karishma,

    You have reviewed this very nicely. I agree that they need to improve the individual soap's packing. The gift pack looks luxurious.

    I've tried the aloe vera soap from Aster and my experience is similar to your. I too wish the fragrance stays for longer time.

    1. Thank you Fatima :)
      hope they work of the fragrance and packaging part!!!
