Vitos soap recommendation :?:

Post by LouisIII » Wed Apr 04, 2012 11:52 am

I'll likely end up with a kilo of each, but would like some input on if fans can really split 'em - when they were first came out some commented the 'super' or extra' red boxed one was a bit better (there are now two - standard almond and coconut). So, which of the three are preferred...?

Cheers

I don't know if the reviews above will help or not. Did you check them?

I was sent a container of Vitos Red by a gent and I find it to be quite good. Not quit as good as p.160, but not shy of that quality by much. Can't help beyond that.

The Green box is better for oilier skin and the red boxes are better for dryer skin (added Glycerin). One of the red boxes is scented with coconut oil. Both versions are a first class soap and in my opinion offer amazing value-for-money.

LG,
Sorry if that first post was a bit confused/confusing, am just looking for opinions of differences between Vitos soaps - not buying or selling any right now/here.

Excellent, exactly what I was looking for. Thanks.

ps RR your Mughetto di Bologna is my most favoured soft soap right now - somehow find it lathers better than Cella, though its very similarly formulated. Perhaps its the bigger container or something like that. But good stuff, keep it up =D>
