[REVIEW + GIVEAWAY] MYC Skincare | Handmade Soap in Malaysia

Reviewing the MYC Skincare
Good morning, have y'all are having a good week ahead. If you are looking for customised handmade goods (handmade soaps to be more specific) or just basically anything that's handmade with love, well let me tell you a thing or two about MYC Skincare. MYC Skincare products are 100% vegetarian are very eco-friendly as they minimise as much wastage on packaging as much as possible. Ingredients in making their products have no synthetic chemical and if you're thinking of getting custom made soaps, as door gifts, wedding gifts or simply a gift for someone you care about, it's about time you see what MYC Skincare has to offer.


Basil Mint Body Soap / RM25
Here I have for review for today's post would be one of their newly launched Basil Mint body soap which I have to say smells heavenly! The bar was personally sent over to me which I think it was really sweet of the talented soap maker to come all the way. The bar soap came with no plastic packaging (super eco-friendly) and it was really cute that it was wrapped in brown paper with a small handwritten note that states the type of bar soap, the weight and the pricing of the soap. It's always good to see handmade items being made entirely handmade cause you'll eventually know that they've taken so much effort to produce this.

Loving the texture of it
Anyways, it's always more exciting to find out how these soaps were made and since I had the privilege to get to meet the soapmaker in person she was kind enough to spend some of her time to explain to me. To make the Rustic Basil Mint Soap, the soap maker had to cook the soap batter for almost an hour, with constant supervision (cause we wouldn't want it to be overcooked). The batter is split into half, naturally coloured in each of the portions by Activated Charcoal and Yellow Clay, to make sure its refreshing, cleansing and moisturising. Just the characteristics any bar soap should have!

Foams really well too!
The idea of handmade products is that I love that how each bar soap has its own unique build. Perfect squares or rectangled bar soaps are boring, and looking at mine really makes me appreciate the shape more. I was told that it contains Olive Oil and Coconut Oil to moisturise and nourish the skin, while the yellow clay ingredients are recommended for all skin types as it's restorative for tired and neglected skin (indeed what I need desperately), and the activated charcoal ingredients acts as a detoxing agent for the skin. Basil Mint Essential oil fights bacteria and infection, reducing inflammation, preventing radical damages, viruses and relieves congestion. I honestly never knew what a bar of soap can do until the soap maker told me. Makes me feel that handmade bar soaps are being taken for granted nowadays :(

Every purchase you can request to get this for free !
With the bubble pouch it lathers really well
OH before I forget, every bar soap bought comes with a bubble pouch which helps to foam up your bar, but if you prefer receiving your bar soap without the bubble pouch, you can always request to not include it in your parcel. As a verdict, I would say that this handmade soap is well made to cleanse, moisturise and indeed de-stressing thanks to the refreshing aroma. This would definitely be a great gift to get for someone close or maybe might as well get it for yourself at RM25 for 100g! I'd say that its really reasonable as a bar would roughly last me a month or two. Hehe
