Nubian Heritage Coconut and Papaya Soap with Vanilla Bean


I'm almost done with the Nubian Heritage Soaps. I have three more to go.I ordered this one from iherb.com for 2.91. It's the best price I've seen online. So anyway on to the review.



Nubian Heritage says:
The coconut palm has touched all aspects of daily life for millions of tropical communities. Since the 1st Century B.C., the coconut tree has provided shelter, transportation and, more importantly, food. Coconut oil, high in vitamins, minerals and fatty acids, is an excellent skin softener and protector. Papaya contains papain, a naturally occurring enzyme, used for centuries to gently dissolve dead skin cells, loosen pore blockage and stimulate circulation.Nubian Heritage pays homage to the tropics with our blend of pure Shea Butter, nourishing Coconut Oil, and vitamin-rich Papaya. Vanilla Beans gently buff the skin as the Papaya's enzymatic action deep cleanses and smoothes. The rich Shea Butter and Coconut Oil combination re-hydrates the skin, improving suppleness and protecting against moisture loss.

So I'll just cut to the chase. I was very dissapointed. I was expecting a coconut scent, a vanilla scent. or even a papaya scent. And I got NADA. It kinda smelled nice in the box but later there was nothing. It moisturizes my skin, it lathers nicely and all that jazz but the lack of scent was sooo disappointing.It works fantastically on my face though and is supposedly anti-aging,skin brightening and firming..

Ingredients:
Coconut oil, coconut milk, papaya enzymes, vanilla beans, shea butter, cocoa butter, vegetable glycerin, 
 vitamin E, soaps of coconut & palm

Ingredients as always are FANTASTIC. All natural, it even has a certified organic sticker.  But I really wanted a coconut scent or something. If that doesn't bother you then I would totally recommend it.
