How would you prefer a bathing soap to be? Basic as in sasta tikau or luxury spa style? Foamy and bubbled or scented and perfumed? Bathroom soap or beauty soap? Indian soap brand or International? There is also a ‘beauty soap of the film stars’.
So many versions of a bathing soap can be enough to put you in a quick fix. Nahaana hi to hai so why be so picky and choosy about a soap after all! Oh yes, size is another factor in the selection of a soap.
Each time you are going for a bath, it’s the passport to enjoying some private moments with yourself. As you can see, the soap category has blossomed to amazingly new heights in the same way as a shampoo has (remember there was a time when a ‘soap’ was used to wash hair. It is still done)!
