The word ‘saffron’ or ‘kesar’ reminds us of the sweet aroma and the intense orange and reddish color. It has been adding to the nutritional value and flavor to our food since ages. We have also read about Indian queens using saffron for their beauty rituals. This little stigma has lot more to do than just beautifying and adding flavors to the dishes. This article is going to be a review on a handmade, organic soap – Kesar Snan, that has saffron as the main ingredient. I’ll also talk about how good is Kashmiri saffron for your skin along with a few interesting facts.

My Take on This Product
When you know that your soap is free from animal fat and is totally handmade by the artisans of India, you enjoy your bath without any worries. 🙂 This is the reason I keep trying on various organic soaps that have 100% natural ingredients that are mild on the skin. Kesar Snan saffron soap comes in a form of a round, off-white bar which smells great. The moment I opened the pack, sweet smell of saffron took over my senses. It is creamy and lather really well. It is also mild on the skin and does not leave a stretchy feeling post-bath. This does not mean that you could skip a moisturizer. It does not stick to the body and can be washed off quickly. The whole bathroom fills with the aroma of saffron and cream after using this. I would not say that the bar lasts long because, the creamy texture of the soap gets used up faster. However, loofah-bodied men have the potential of exhausting it in a day or two! 😀 😛 Coming to Kashmiri kesar, this soap is supposedly enriched with saffron and milk cream along with other ingredients. I will not comment on the whitening or brightening part as I do not endorse one! But it does makes the skin soft and radiant apart from the amazing fragrance that lingers for a few hours.
Let me list down the pros and cons,
♥ Value pack
♥ Creamy texture
♥ Lathers well
♥ Great fragrance
♥ Goodness of saffron
♥ Milk cream has moisturizing effects
♥ Makes the skin soft
♥ Suitable for winters
♥ Refreshing feeling post-bath
♥ Soothes the senses
🙁 Does not last long
🙁 The fragrance subsides in a couple of hours
🙁 Difficult to find other than Qtrove
Will I Repurchase/Recommend This to You?
I will repurchase another variant from this range because I am quite impressed with this value pack of Kesar Snan Saffron Soaps. I would recommend this to you if you want to treat your senses with the sweet aroma of Kashmiri saffron plus the benefits for the skin.
