Disclosure: I got this as a gift from Argee of The Beauty Bin. I used this only on the body.
This is the first soap I’ve tried of Camaru Naturals and I like it.
General Product Information
To summarize what’s written on the package: Acerola is a whitening soap. I don’t use whitening products in general, but what the heck. I got this as a gift and I won’t throw it away. Between whitening and earth-friendliness (by way of not throwing stuff away), I choose the latter.
This is supposed to be a natural japanese soap made of natural japanese ancient secret ingredients that women in japan use to achieve smooth and flawless skin.
Acerola, on the other hand, is an ingredient that should have a lot of Vitamin C.
Ingredients are listed at the bottom part of the article.
It is a product of the Philippines priced at Php 125.00
In terms of look, lather, and over-all feel, this soap is much like most hand-made or ‘natural’ soaps that have little soap hardener.
It smells like lime.
Comes in a very yellow solid bar (135g.)
It has a basic rectangle shape and is packaged in plastic wrap with a sticker label on it.
It makes a thick lather and consumes fast. Keep it away from the shower to prevent it from melting.
I expected the soap to be a little bit drying, and it is.
This is common of soaps made of saponified oils. As far as I know, soap is saponified oil (and not all bath bars are soap).
It stings on broken skin.
Oh my, this soap can feel like actual lime juice being poured down on broken skin. That’s ok with me because my pain tolerance is high and it’s also kind of expected because of the acid content.
It dries skin rashes.
I usually get rashes a few days after I eat eggs, chicken, or shellfish. It usually takes more than a week for the redness and itchiness to go away. This soap made my skin rashes go away faster than it usually does if I didn’t do anything. I also noticed that I didn’t get the usual dark patch I get when my rashes heal.For what it did for my skin rashes, the dryness and sting is negligible.
I like it. If I chance upon it in a supermarket or at a mall, I’ll definitely buy a bar for my rashes. I know I’ll find use for it again coz I always eat food I’m allergic to.
Currently, it’s only available via their facebook page and their office at Makati, UG 16 Cityland Dela Rosa Condominium.
