Nubian Heritage Goats Milk and Chai Soap with Rose Extracts

So I know it's been awhile since I've done a nubian heritage review, but I decided to just order the missing soaps and go ahead and crank some reviews out. I ordered this off of IHERB. It ran about three dollars a piece but then I used a coupon code and got five dollars off. The shipping was low too. So I recommend them. But on with the review.

It's Claims:
Featured on the walls of Egyptian and Abyssinian tombs dating back to the 500 BC, the Rose has proven useful in skincare for all skin types. Cleopatra's legendary milk and rose petal baths illustrate milk's well documented history as an ancient moisturizing additive. Chai, the actual word for tea in Swahili, is integral to the cultural and social fabric of many civilizations. Grown on East African family farms, Chai is rich in antioxidants to fight skin damage and premature aging.

Skin softening Honey is added to this naturally rich moisturizing Goat's Milk Soap with Rose extracts. Mildly astringent Rose Water works with the essential fatty acids found in Goat's Milk to cleanse, help regulate pH, condition and soften. Finely ground Chai and Rose Petals provide light exfoliation and natural antioxidant protection.

So, it smells really good when you just inhale directly from the bar. In the shower I was a bit dissapointed because it smells like baby powder. I mean there's nothing wrong with baby powder but I was looking for the initial scent. It isn't drying but I wouldn't say it's supermoisturizing either. The one thing I didn't like was the "dead" roses in it. It looked kind of molded. Maybe not a good idea to put roses in it. Plus there was a big rose, and I mean the whole rose.

But the ingredients are PHENOMINAL. All natural and organic.

Palm Oil and/or Coconut Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Organic Shea Butter, Goat's Milk Powder, Rose Petals, Rose Extract, Honey, Camellia Sinensis (Chai) Leaf Extract, Rose Water, Mineral Pigment or Vegetable Color, Natural Fragrance and/or Essential Oil

Overall it was just OK. But I really like the company and the ingredients so I'm gonna say it's worth a try.
