Hello pouters & posers, how you all are doing ? 🙂
Its wedding season & this month i attended like 4-5 wedding functions continuously which means lots of travelling and applying loads of makeup. It has taken a toll on my skin due to all day makeup face. My skin hardly got any time to breath. Thats when the bon organic facial soap came to my rescue.
About BON – We are not a company but a journey that began in Auroville, India by one man named Ganesh Chandrasekaran back in 1997. At the time, it was only the pure application of several Ayurvedic recipes to treat health problems luring among the locals. Further on, as proper nutrition is the root of Ayurveda, healthy dining was made available back in the days. From there we realised that this conscious living was a priceless gift of good and wellbeing hidden in the act of being organic, natural and bio-environment friendly; hence was born our name Bio Organic & Natural signifying the act of being natural, inartificial, and conscious within and about our surrounding in our daily routine including our accessorial practices towards skin, body, & hair care along with our home hygiene and health. Overall, our abbreviation represents and means ‘good’ for everyone.
Today, our journey continues to follow the light. We are proud to announce that our growth is measured in the smile on our customers’ faces and the love in our employees’ hearts worldwide. At BON we are a healthy family, here we don’t refer to big investors of any sort but the lovely hearts that make us who we are Team.

So Two weeks ago i received a facial soap from BON to be reviewed on my blog.
Bio Organic & Natural’s organic Facial soap is made with an excellent recipe for facial needs and protects the skin from the harmful rays of sunlight & the many forms of pollution. The ingredients help restore the skin with its tone, cleanliness, texture, and moisture level. If you’re a person who constantly stays in an air-conditioned room, you’ll need this soap to restore that life and water in your skin especially on your facial skin which is generally exposed as it is uncovered (well unless you’re wearing a full face mask which is extremely rare). Unlike all our other soaps, this one is in particular formulated for the face with numerous handpicked essential oils to hydrated and safe guard the face from acne bursts and other facial discomforts.
Packaging : It comes wraped inside a dry leaf with a paper note rolled over it which contains information about the soap, its price, weight & ingredients. Its a eco friendly packaging. Thumbs up for this packaging.
Smell : I cannot make out what it smells like but i think it smells like Johnson’s baby powder 😛 The smell is gentle and not overpowering.

Before writing my experience let me tell you that i had this little doubt in my mind whether soaps can be used on the face? I decided to email the BON team and ask them what makes this soap suitable for face. And here is what they replied. —> Dear Ekta,thanks for your query.
Firstly, I would like to clarify that statement. The ‘soap’ that cannot be used on the face is referred to the commercial cleansing bars you can widely find in the market these days (BUT these are NOT soaps at all).
These are merely cleansers.
Our organic & handmade soaps in the other hand can be used on the face and body. In fact all our soaps can be used on the face as well as body. The reason for this is because we are using a unique UCP process which doesn’t involve any harsh chemicals or any heating or other nonsense that may harm the skin (face or body) in any way. We use a blending technique which is very unique and an ancient and forgotten soap making technique from Gandhigram, Southern India.
At BON we treat skin, the biggest organ of our body, as precious as any other regardless of whether it is facial skin or of the rest of the body.
I hope this answers your query. 🙂
My Experience: As i said that applying loads of makeup had taken a toll on my skin. I got few pimples and my face looked dull and iritated. Tired by attending functions i felt so lazy to use the makeup remover , cleansers and all that stuff. I decided to pick up this facial soap to wash my face. After washing my face the feeling that it gave to my skin was Reposing. I was in aww of this soap. It cleanses the skin so well leaving it fresh looking, clean and so soft. It instantly breathes new life into the skin. My face looks fair after using it. The soap is gentle on my face and did not stretch out my skin or dry it out. It not only cleanses but will also give your skin the feeling of calmness. I love using this soap every night before going to bed. My skin loves it too for its free from chemicals and other non sense stuff.
I highly recommend this soap for all those who wear makeup regularly & have to deal with harsh sunrays & have dull skin.
I would like to thank the brand for introducing me to this soap. 🙂
