Tebe Lavish Soap Bar; Nature Goodness

Last year I watched a documentary regarding beauty products and how it affects our health. Apparently, 60% of the ingredients in our beauty products don’t contribute to enhancing our skin, but it is added to hasten skin improvement process. These ingredients are tested and proven to be toxic positive. What scares me the most is that, these toxic elements can cause cancer!

I became more alert on beauty product ingredients. Before purchasing my skincare, I will take my time to read the ingredients and google each ingredient that I doubt. I also start looking for organic skin products that made from 100% natural ingredients. Sadly, there are very few natural beauty brands available in Malaysia. Out of the very few that we have, I particularly love Tebe. So far, I’ve only tried their Lavish Soap bar and some mini samples that the SA gave me.

I walked into theSkintopic at Pavilion and found out they bring in New Zealand skincare brands like Olive, Tebe, Linden Leaves, Wild Ferns, etc. that only use organic and/or natural ingredients in their products. This is a good news for me as I’m trying go al natural in my beauty habits.

The main purpose of the Lavish Soap bar is to provide moisture to the skin. It is suitable for face and body.


1. Made from 100% natural ingredients – extra virgin olive oil, chamomile flower extract, natural waxes and olive leaf extract. Free from mineral oils, parabens, artificial colourants, silicones and animal products.
2. pH balanced. Don’t cause irritation to skin.
3. Able to control eczema problem on skin.
4. Cleansing power is quite good. I can use this to remove my thick face foundation.
5. The soap bar last quite long. One bar can last up to 6 months if you use it on the face only. And if you use it on the body, it last about 3 months.
6. Skin feels instantly feel hydrated and moisturized after first application.
7. Smells really good and light. I love the refreshing smell after bath. It’s so soothing.
8. Unlike other soap that melts away after little usage, this one still feels solid after awhile.


1. Expensive. One bar cost RM68. It depends on your usage. If you can use it up to 6 months, then it will only cost RM10 for a month. 
2. Contains perfume. Those who have allergy to perfumes, do beware!

Although the Lavish Soap bar is totally good to use on the face, I still haven’t develop the habit to use soap bar as part of my facial routine. I only use it on my face occasionally when I don’t put on makeup. Instead, I use this for my body daily. I have mild eczema problem, especially when I do sports my entire leg will feel itchy and red. After using this Lavish Soap bar, I don’t get this problem now.

After ten usage, the soap bar is still in perfect shape. 

Tebe also has a whole range of facial products like facial wash, day cream and night cream. All their products are made from natural ingredients. I manage to get some samples to try out, I totally recommend you getting the face cleansing milk. It’s so mild, but really effective in cleaning off face foundation.

They also have another range of products which is under the Olive line. Basically Olive and Tebe are about the same, except that Olive products are using 100% virgin olive oil, meanwhile Tebe products have added olive leave extract. If you think Tebe Lavish Soap Bar is expensive, alternatively you can try the Olive Natural Soap Bar which is only RM29.

If you go to theSkintopic, they have all the soap bars for you to test out. When I tried out the Tebe Lavish Soap bar on my left hand and I can see a clear difference. My right hand is more dry and dull, meanwhile my left hand feels smoother... It feels nice, lah. I don’t know how to explain the difference. Go and try it out yourself if you happen to pass by. Then you can see it for yourself what I mean.

Regarding the documentary that I’ve mentioned below is the video. After watching it, you will be more cautious on your skincare products. I totally recommend you to switch to organic and natural ingredients skincare for safer option.
