I got two different brands of soap, I put them to the test to see which one is best suited for my family.
Find out which one I chose.
First up, the Leading Brand, with three different scents to choose from.
and Shield, also, three different ones to choose from.
(Cleansing White, Blooming Pink and Calming Beige)
I put both brands to the test, Leading Brand (White variant) and Shield (Cleansing White).
USAGE DURATION: One week
IDEAL FOR: Family/Bath soap
AREA OF APPLICATION: Body
It is important to use antibacterial soap after a long day out in the sun or working out at the gym. It helps reduce the appearance of breakouts and helps eliminate body odor.
All my children enjoy playing out in the playground. However, germs and bacteria tend to stick on to the equipment that they use, which can later induce sickness. It is good to know that there is an antibacterial soap that has a key ingredient of Triclocarban to protect from illness caused by what they may pick up whenever they’re out playing. It also makes them smell fresh, too!
Let’s take a look at the Leading Brand.
90g- Php 25.00
It has a fresh clean scent that is pleasant and not overpowering.
The Leading Brand has an ergonomic shape. I like that it has a curved underside that you can actually hold onto the soap easier without it sliding out of your hands. It’s also great when placed on a soap dish. My kids usually leave water on the dish, causing other bar soaps to melt. Thanks to this design, the bar actually lasts longer and saves you money in the long run.
I actually love the Leading Brand. Not only that it’s antibacterial, it also has a clean scent. It helps remove oil and dirt from your skin but it’s gentle enough to keep your skin moisturized. I remember when I was in elementary school when I used to suffer from bad case of acne. I tried shower gels and other brands of soap but didn’t really help me with my problem. Someone suggested that I should try the Leading Brand and within a few weeks, my zits were gone!
This is a great product to cleanse your skin for a blemish-free body. It also controls body odor and has no sticky residue. Since all my children are boys, they tend to be very active and perspire easily. I use the Leading Brand when giving them a bath. It helps me protect them from getting body odor and get rid off the germs on their bodies that they accrue throughout the day. It is very economical and we are very satisfied. This is truly made for the family.
Now, let’s talk about Shield Bath Soap by ACS Manufacturing Corporation that is approved by the Philippine Nurses Association, Inc.
This is actually the first time I used and heard about Shield but I have seen the TVC recently. As a proud nurse, I really enjoyed the advertisement they did and I was convinced with what has been said:
"Hindi biro maging nurse, dapat marunong sa sakit at marunong din mag alaga yung bang may malasakit, kaya pag dating sa bath soap, hanap ko tulad ko lalo't may pamilya ako kaya ang gamit ko Shield Bath Soap galit eto sa sakit na tulad ng germs, may antibacterial na pareho ng sa leading brand, may malasakit sa skin dahil may shea butter moisturizer may malasakit din sa budget dahil super affordable! "
Shield Antibacterial Soap (Cleansing White)
Shield Cleansing White is an all in one bath soap. It is mild to the skin at the same time giving you maximum protection against germs and bacteria.
WHAT SHIELD SAYS:
Shield is your all-in-one bath soap giving you maximum protection against germs and bacteria at the same time leaving your skin nice and smooth.
Shield Bath Soap has Anti-Bacterial ingredients giving your skin long-lasting protection against germs and bacteria that may cause disease and body odor. Shield is infused with Active Skin Moisturizer (Shea Butter) that helps maintain the skin's moisture while cleansing.
60 grams- Php 11.25
90 grams- Php 19.75
INGREDIENTS: Sodium Palmate, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Tapioca Starch, Palm Kernel Acid, Water, Fragrance, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Sodium Lactate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Triclocarban, Titanium Dioxide, Sodium Chloride, Disodium Etidronate, Tetrasodium EDTA, Disodium Distyrylbiphenyl Disulfonate, BHA
It smells fresh and natural but not overpowering.
The Shield has rounded corners and smooth surface!
♥ I love that it is moisturizing. It has shea butter, a particularly effective moisturizer that contains fatty acids that is used to retain skin moisture and elasticity. The soap however, is not as economical as the Leading Brand. It melts the soap when it’s put on a soap dish.
Lathers well, I really love the bubbles that Shield Bath Soap creates when you lather it.
Has a good clean refreshing scent that is not too strong or too soft. It has a nice fragrance that will guarantee compliments on how good you will smell. It made my skin feel very clean. It has no sticky residue that makes skin feeling dry and itchy. The soap provides moisturizing effect along with the antibacterial and deodorant benefits. It has fresh all day feeling and has a reasonable price. I would recommend this soap to anyone.
Leading Brand VS. Shield
For some reasons when I asked my son which soap he prefers he replied "Shield" ♥
EFFECTIVENESS- I think both the Leading Brand and Shield Antibacterial soaps are both effective in removing and giving maximum protection against germs and bacteria, preventing body odors and diseases. If I was to pick one, I find the Leading Brand to be more effective. Maybe it’s because it’s what we are accustomed to.
FRAGRANCE/SCENT- I personally love the smell of Shield. I find the fragrance very refreshing.
SKIN FEEL/TEXTURE - I prefer the moisturizing power of Shield, it leaves skin soft and smooth feeling.
LONGEVITY OF FRESHNESS FEELING: After a long day and intense sweaty workout, the Leading Brand and Shield has the same longevity of freshness but I prefer the Leading Brand.
AVAILABILITY- The Leading Brand is available almost everywhere while Shield has been a bit difficult to find due to it being a new product.
AFFORDABILITY- They are both very affordable but Shield is almost P5 cheaper than the Leading Brand for the 90 grams bar of soap.
How about you?
Which one would you prefer?
The Leading Brand or Shield?
Tell me what you think? I would love to hear your comments and suggestions.
THANKS, Much Love, Rochelle
