After how much I loved the makeup primer from Reviva Labs, I couldn’t wait to try more of their products. I was intrigued by the Seaweed Soap because I’ve read that seaweed soaps have historically been used to fight cellulite. This soap is completely cruelty free and vegan – they use palm and coconut oils instead of animal fats to make it.
The ingredients of the soap are as follows : Soap (Sodium Palmate and Cocoate Types), Water, Sorbitan Oleate, Atlantic and/or Pacific Seaweed Grains, Glycerin, Walnut Shell Powder, Atlantic and/or Pacific Seaweeds, Microscopic Blue-Green Algae, Sodium Chloride, Trisodium Hedta, Fragrance, Iron Oxides, Talc. Not only does the product description confirm that the Glycerin is plant-based, but I have also confirmed that with Reviva Labs as well.
I liked that the soap left my skin feeling clean, but it wasn’t drying. I think that the coconut oil in it really helped to keep my skin soft. The pieces of real seaweed and walnut shell powder in the soap also did a great job of exfoliating. I like that it’s a unique alternative to all the exfoliating soaps that contain oatmeal.
The biggest issue I had with the soap was the smell. It was a bit too perfume smelling for my taste. Because it’s a seaweed soap make from palm oil and coconut oil, I was expecting a more natural and less potent smell. I didn’t notice a change in my skin tone but, honestly, you can’t expect miracles from a soap.
Overall, I am really enjoying using Reviva Labs Seaweed Soap. I’ve been using it for a month now and still have half the bar left, so it’s a great deal for the price. Reviva Labs has always been cruelty free, and they offer a lot of vegan products (plus, they will go the extra mile to confirm what products are vegan if you ask). To me, that’s also well worth supporting. I like how the seaweed soap lathers, that it exfoliates, and that it doesn’t dry out my skin. The pros of this soap outweigh the cons. If you want to try a new soap or if you are looking for a unique item to add to a gift basket, check out Reviva Labs Seaweed Soap.
