Mum Goes Viral By Licking Bars Of Soap And Reviewing Them

A mum has become an internet sensation after she turned her weird pregnancy craving into a video series, where she licks bars of soap and reviews them.

Khosik Assyifa said she began licking the products when she was pregnant with her son Mo, in 2017.

At the time she says she was ashamed of her bizarre cravings, keeping it a secret from her husband - and says she would often lock herself in a bathroom so she could chow down on the bars in private.

And though the cravings subsided following the birth of her son, Mo, she carried on with it. But now rather than hide it from her friends and family, the 21-year-old has embraced her strange addiction.

The mum from East Java, Indonesia, now films herself eating the bars and has amassed an army of thousands of subscribers who tune in to see her review different brands of soap.

Footage from one of her reviews shows Khosik looking at the camera with a purple bar in her hands, which she then soaks in water before lathering it up and getting to work, putting her mouth around it.

In another clip, the enthusiastic YouTuber seems to be really enjoying the taste and starts licking her lips after every taste.

But as opposed to a sommelier with fine wine, rather than swilling the suds around her mouth and spitting them out, Khosik swallows everything. I mean, you wouldn't want to waste it, would you?

According to the mum, her unique method of reviewing the soap gives her a deeper understanding of its quality.

"There is nobody else that does this. I am the only person who can tell a brand of soap by the taste," she said.

"It all started when I tasted the soap by accident while I was in the shower. It was fruity so I began sucking the bar. That's when I started to enjoy it and do it more.

"People enjoy my reviews. I can tell the best type of soap by how it tastes on the tongue."

And though some may have thought eating soap would make you sick or least a little quesy, Khosik said she was completely fine and her tot is very healthy.

The young mum added: "I've never experienced any side effects or been unwell because of eating the soap."
