Impressed with the scent
“Repeated purchase with these enhanced lasting versions. Been sharing with my neighbour and auntie, they are impressed with this scent too.”

Better than that established brand I’ve been using
“Started using this local startup brand. It’s no different or maybe better than that established brand that I’ve been using, and that everyone else is selling. And it is so much cheaper. I don’t even have to put up with 1 nasty seller whose price is probably the lowest. Tq seller. Will continue supporting you!”

Value for money. Nice smell.
“Value for money. Nice smell. Soapy enough for small/medium loads. For larger loads, my wife is too stingy to use 2 pods. So she adds a bit of cheap soap powder to make the water more soapy. I’ve learned not to judge or question the techniques of the person who does the laundry.”
– G***I, Lazada review
It’s relatively cheaper than other pods
“My second time buying. I really love the smell. And it’s relatively cheaper than other pods. I hope they aren’t discontinued (since it’s kinda hard to find).”
