Casa de Lorenzo's Castile Soap Review

Whenever organic is mentioned, I am always all ears and if you mention coffee, then you’ll have my full attention. That is how Casa de Lorenzo Soaps, Oils and Aromatics got me. They make soaps, oils and aromatics from all natural ingredients. When the opportunity was opened, I immediately signed up to review their products!

Casa de Lorenzo Soaps, Oils and Aromatics provided me with two bottles of Castile Soap: Coffee Dark and Lemongrass Manila. Casa de Lorenzo’s Castile Soap is made from all natural ingredients from the best nature’s produce here in the Philippines. Their Castile Soaps are made by hands using the finest ingredients that are down-to-earth organic cased in a classy brown bottle.

Since I am a self-confessed caffeinated muse, I immediately tried Casa de Lorezo’s Coffee Dark Castile Soap the next morning. I wanted to get caffeinated not only by drinking coffee but also while I take my bath. ^_^

Dark Coffee Castile Soap

What I Like:
– I thought that it smelled like roasted coffee beans and when I checked the label, it was made from real Barako Coffee! So I like it that the smell of coffee is the real deal.
– The color and texture of the Dark Castile Soap is obviously dark. I thought that it would stain my sponge but it didn’t. After applying to your skin, the color fades. Yay!!
– My skin felt smooth. I don’t get the after bath dry feeling like ordinary bar soaps.

What I Don’t Like:
– I like my soap to be very soapy. This one doesn’t produce that much bubbles as I have expected with soaps.
– You have to use more if you want it to be bubbly.

After a few days, I tried Casa de Lorenzo’s Lemongrass Manila Castile Soap next. I always love lemongrass on my dish and on my tea but while taking a bath, just like coffee, it is a different story.

Lemongrass Manila Castile Soap

What I Like:
– The color and texture of the Lemongrass Manila Castile Soap is not dark. Absolutely, no stains here!
– After rinsing, the smell of lemongrass is not there anymore. I’m SO glad!
– Just like Coffee Dark Castile Soap, my skin felt smooth ~ no after bath dry feeling.
– It produces a lot of bubbles! I like how it easily create bubbles on your skin once you apply it.

What I Don’t Like:
– The smell. I think the smell of lemongrass is just too overwhelming for me. Well, that’s just me. I have allergic rhinitis and strong smells really irritates my nose. After rinsing thoroughly, the lemongrass smell is removed though.

Casa de Lorenzo’s Coffee Dark Castile Soap is made from organic ingredients such as water, olive oil, virgin coconut oil, palm oil, akali (none remains after saponification) and infused with Barako Coffee beans; while Casa de Lorenzo’s Lemongrass Manila Castile Soap is made from rice bran oil, virgin coconut oil and palm oil, and scented with essential oil of lemongrass from the lush farmlands of the Island of Negros in the Philippines. All natural food for your skin!

Both Castile Soap comes in 250mL, 500mL, 1000mL, and 3500mL bottle. I was provided with the 250 mL bottles that are sold at Php 350 each. Casa de Lorenzo Oils, Aromatics and Soaps’ products are made from all natural ingredients and are proudly Filipino made!

I love Casa de Lorenzo’s natural products even when I do not use them often. The Coffee Castille Soap is something every coffee addict must have in their bathroom!

I love using natural products and I’ve never heard of this brand before. I’m with you though, the smell of lemongrass is also too over-powering for me.

Nancy April 17, 2015 - 1:01 am

I bet these would be really awesome to use. I haven’t heard of them, but some of them sound soo niceee.

Amanda April 17, 2015 - 1:23 am

Thanks for introducing us to these products. I bet the smell amazing, which is my favorite thing about soaps. Safe and healthy? Even better.

I don’t think I’ve tried soaps like this before. The ingredients sound pretty nice. I wonder how I’d like it.

Coffee scented soap?!! I must have this wonderful stuff! I love the smell of coffee but hate the taste so this would be perfect for me!

Michelle Hwee April 17, 2015 - 7:09 am

These soaps look so cool! I love that they are all natural, definitely a plus for me! I find the coffee one to be really interesting, I will be checking them out! Thanks.

I love that your review was so honest! I am confused about just one part, though, probably due to my total lack of knowledge about castile soap/coffee-infused products, but does your body actually absorb caffeine through using them?

rochkirstin April 17, 2015 - 9:38 am

Oh wow I am addicted to the smell of coffee. The scent will make me want to stay in the shower or carry that soap in the office with me. 🙂

What you don’t like about the soap is why i’d but it and try it out. I don’t like my soap too bubbly and I love the smell of lemon grass–so it sounds like I’m going to have to do a little shopping soon–thanks for the review.

Tammilee TIps April 17, 2015 - 12:38 pm

I love to try new natural products. I had not heard of this brand before sounds like it would be a good one to try.

Penny Struebig April 17, 2015 - 12:48 pm

I’ve never heard of soaps like this before. I love your comment about getting caffeine in your bath as well as drinking it! It’s great that these products are all natural.

Shaney Vijendranath April 17, 2015 - 2:07 pm

Coffee soap? Am I seeing right?! Never knew they actually make something like that, wow! This sounds so interesting.

Rebecca Swenor April 17, 2015 - 2:39 pm

These soaps sound totally amazing and I so what to check them out. These scents/flavors sound like the ones I will try. I love using all natural products. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for this post! I love that the soap smelled like roasted coffee beans. But, I as well like for my soup to be extra soapy.

This soap must be amazing. I love coffee scented items and I am sure I will love this one

vidya sudarsan April 18, 2015 - 11:02 am

I’ve never heard of soaps made with lemon grass and coffee.. I love both these flavors and tempted to try these soaps.

Marina John April 18, 2015 - 11:46 am

Castille soap is the best. It’s natural and can be used for so many things.
