Melle Beauty Ambulung (Rumbia) Soap Review
reviews skin care melle beauty ambulung rumbia soap

I bought something from my shopping trip at Wawasan Plaza, Kota Kinabalu on 30th August 2009. I was intrigued by the brochure I was given by their flyer girls at Warisan Square before that. So I've decided to buy it (sold for RM48.80 aa), note that my cleanser have also run out ngam ngam. =P It is manufactured in Lok Kawi, distributed from Wawasan Plaza.

Here's the flyer. I was given (again) after purchasing the soap. Here it reads..

The girl who sold it to us told to use it like cleanser, wet it, lather onto the skin and massage it thoroughly. And if you're getting blemishes, don't worry, it's normal and it will go away. "Memang macam tu," she said. Okay, I thought.

Here's how it is from the packaging. Wrapped up. Very hygiene!

I cut the soap vertically and use the smaller piece at a time. Cuz the girl said the soap kinda kembang if left too long in wet area. So I got my tupperware bowl and put the soap in!

The lather is thick but disappears quickly when applied onto the skin. Either it evaporates or seep into the skin, I don't know la. My face didn't feel any tightening or itchiing after washing, like normal. It doesn't have a strong smell, like those medicated ones, only it has milder, less pungent smell. And it's like the rumbia's smell I think.

The first few weeks I can already see zits popping out from new places across my face. Like, 3-6 of them. And when it pops, it comes back again. I was like, believing what the girl said and just continued with the soap until it was finished, like, about 3 months la I used the soap.

The result? My face got more zits than before I used it. It's not like, the whole zits appear at a time, they switches and like I said, I get new zits popping on areas of my face. I regret buying the soap man.

Wasn't worth the money even. Priced at nearly RM50 for a soap that won't do me any good. I won't buy it again and I won't recommend it to anybody. Na ah.

Shine on,


  1. Hi,nice comment. From the data i got, only fewer buyer have the issue. Fyi, they have improved the formulation. Because i did my FYP in my university in analyse their physical,chemical,clinical properties with other product as well.(bar soap type). It is safe for skin.
    You should buy Mellebeauty latest product. Now with pearl secret. and the price is RM 17.90 only. Can stand around 3 months per bar. ;) Have a try ;)

  2. You must have some close relation with Mellebeauty reading your comment. Thanks for telling!
