Review of Casa de Lorenzo’s Coffee Dark Castile Soap and Lemongrass Manila Castile Soap

Castile soap is a soap made primarily with olive oil. It can also contain other plant oils, but it does not have animal fats. It is for these reasons that others call it “vegetable soap.” I haven’t tried Castile soaps before, so I didn’t pass up the chance to review these products when the opportunity presented itself.

I got Casa de Lorenzo’s Coffee Dark Castile Soap and Lemongrass Manila Castile Soap. These liquid Castile soaps contain natural ingredients from natural products cultivated by Filipino farmers. These products are proudly Philippine-made.

• No matter how good these products smell, never drink or ingest them.
• No matter how mild or natural these products are, avoid getting them into your eyes.

Mornings will never be the same again with Casa de Lorenzo’s Coffee Dark Castile Soap. You will not just enjoy your coffee in your cup, but you will also enjoy coffee in your bath. A product made by hand, this liquid Castile soap combines nature’s finest ingredients (Olive Oil, Virgin Coconut Oil, Palm Oil) and is infused with ground real Barako Coffee.

What I Like about the Coffee Dark Castile Soap
• It is made from natural ingredients.
• It is 100% organic.
• It gently cleanses and conditions the skin.
• It is rich in coffee goodness.
• It is a natural exfoliant.
• It rinses off easily.
• It makes the skin smooth and glowing.

My Observations
• It doesn’t produce much lather, so I need several squirts of this liquid Castile soap for the entire body.
• It is coffee-colored like its main ingredient, but it does not leave a stain on the skin after rinsing.
• While the rich aroma of coffee is apparent while using this liquid Castile soap, it does not leave a strong scent on the skin. The coffee aroma dissipates quickly after showering.

What I Like about Lemongrass Manila Castile Soap
• It is 100% natural.
• It is 100% biodegradable.
• It thoroughly cleanses and conditions the skin.
• It is non-drying and non-irritating.
• It is easy to rinse off.
• It leaves the skin smooth and radiant.

My Observations
• It produces more lather than the Coffee Dark Castile Soap, so less amount is needed while showering.
• The Lemongrass scent is quite intense, but it does not leave your skin smelling like lemongrass after rinsing off.
• It has a thin or watery consistency which, according to the website, is a common property of soaps made with coconut oil.

My Overall Opinion of Casa de Lorenzo’s Coffee Dark Castile Soap and Lemongrass Manila Castile Soap
I am happy to have finally experienced the benefits of Castile soaps, more specifically, Casa de Lorenzo’s Coffee Dark Castile Soap and Lemongrass Manila Castile Soap. My son and I use these products, and while we have different favorites, we liked them both for a number of reasons. First, they are safe to use because they do not contain harmful ingredients. Second, these are biodegradable products, so they are better for the environment. Third, they are mild and gentle on the skin, plus they are good moisturizers, too. Finally, since these liquid Castile soaps make use of nature’s produce from the Philippines, then we are also helping our Filipino farmers whenever we buy these products. Overall, these products are good for the consumer, good for our country and good for the environment, so I will continue using them. I highly suggest that you try these products, too.

    It’s too bad that the coffee smell dissipates quickly. Mas okay siguro kung amoy coffee talaga yung body mo after showering to somehow perk you up esp. during a morning shower. I am intrigued. I might try these out.

  2. Lulu says:

    I just came across Casa de Lorenzo products last week! I’m glad someone blogged about it. I think I will prefer trying out the lemongrass soap as I am a big fan of the leaves – my family drinks it with ginger. Definitely calming 🙂

  3. This is very interesting. I didn’t know a soap can have a coffee ingredient.

  4. Juvy Ann says:

    First time I have heard of Castille Soaps. I do like that its all natural and organic, meaning no harmful chemicals that may cause irritation to the skin. Are they also safe on kids?

  5. I would love the lemon grass scent. I have bathroom freshener with lemon grass scent and love it!

  6. The dark soap is really intriguing. I don’t think I’ve ever tried a soap with a dark color – parang you’d have second thoughts putting them on, diba? But, considering they’re made from natural products, you’d be confident naman to use them. I think coffee can be great when applied to the skin as well – rich in antioxidant pa naman diba? Hehe 🙂

  7. Nova says:

    I can recommend this product to my sil who is a vegan, she’ll definitely going to enjoy and like this product.

  8. Cherry says:

    I’d love to try the coffee soap when i take a bath in the morning to wake up my senses. I can already imagine the coffee aroma…

  9. Maan says:

    Oh I’ve always wanted to use castile soap but thought it wasn’t available in the country! I’m happy to see a local brand and will seriously check this out.

  13. I think i like the lemongrass manila castile soap.

  14. The coffee soap looks interesting! I wonder if my skin would be okay to use that since I have pretty sensitive skin.

  15. Nadia says:

    I would love to try the dark coffee castile soap one of these days. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

  16. Monica says:

    The coffee one sounds interesting. Not a coffee drinker, but I loooove the smell of anything coffee. I love going into coffee shops!

  17. Shalene says:

    I want to try those castile soaps! So far I’ve been using By Nature Handmade Soaps pa lang.

  20. Janice says:

    I’ve never tried castile soaps either but I’m into all-natural products so I just might give this one a try. I’m very interested with the coffee variant.

  21. Macy Santos says:

    Where can I buy this stuff (outlets)? And how much per bottle? I am quite interested in the Tanlad variety since I love the scent of fresh lemongrass.

  22. I’ve tried both and I have been using the Lemongrass more than the coffee variant. The best benefit of this products is that it is organic.

  23. Josephine says:

    this is the first time ive learned about this soap. will sure love to try these products soon! 🙂
