What makes A Soap Affair different from other handmade soap brands?
Firstly, it's the formula used - 72% Olive Oil and 28% Coconut Oil. Olive Oil soap is typically very white, opaque and creamy. Left unscented, it gives off a very pleasant, almost fruity smell. Secondly, it's the size of the soap, which is slightly smaller than 3x2x1 inches and about 70g each bar. Lastly, this formula produces a mild soap that is suitable for the face, as well as the body. It is worth to note that high-content Olive Oil soap may not lather as much as other formulas, but it does not lack in cleansing power, and its conditioning properties are out of this world.
Can I use this soap on my face?
YES. But everyone's skin type is different, so please test it out before using it regularly. There has been feedback that A Soap Affair soaps are absolutely lovely for the face - dry and oily skin alike. In fact some have said that their skin began to feel more balanced after using this soap.
What's the best way to prolong the usage of my soap?
Make sure you keep the soap dry after every usage i.e. don't let it sit in a dish where water can pool. If you have a soap saver, that would work too. If you see a layer of gel appearing on your soap, DON'T scrub it off. That's the good glycerin that keeps your skin soft, so just continue using your soap as normal.
How should I properly store the soap I haven't started using?
Your soap comes in a breathable bag. So do keep it in as dry a place as possible, or mould may start to appear (if mould does appear, just wash it off, and you may use the soap as normal). This soap is made from all natural ingredients, after all, and comes with no preservatives.
How long can I keep my soap?
Approximately year after date of purchase. It is best to use the soap as quickly as you can.
How do you charge for shipping?

"Seriously, best soap ever. I use it on my face like everyday."

"I have been using the soap since the day I received it... I can see how effective it is, especially on my face. Previously my face was very dry, but now it's much better. Even my friends can see the difference."

"It makes me feel loved every time I have a shower."

"To be honest, when I first saw the price tag and the size, I thought it was a bit expensive. But I had heard good reviews so I bought it... and to date, it's the best money I've spent on toiletries (and I usually buy expensive toiletries because I've had a tiresome relationship with my skin). The soap is gentle, my skin is squeaky clean after the wash... and the best part is that it is not drying - both immediately after the wash and through the day when my skin would typically dry out in the air-conditioned office. I started using The Naked Truth about 2 weeks back, particularly on my backne (acne on the back), and since then, the backne breakouts have stopped. I also started using it on my face (even though the skin on my face is very sensitive, oily and I experience new breakouts at least once a month). Since then, my colleagues who see the stress-induced-lack-of-sleep breakouts all year round have told me that my skin is brighter, clearer and not oily, even when it's past midnight and I've not slathered on any moisturiser since morning. I love The Naked Truth and my bar of soap is now like gold. Love it. Totally going to keep buying."
