What the brand says: Contains pure essential oils of Neroli, Myrrh & Frankincense. Kama’s Turmeric and Myrrh soap is a skin brightening soap with essence of turmeric which lightens skin, reduces pigmentation and has antiseptic properties. This ayurvedic based formula is blended with Indian ficus extracts of banyan, common fig and sacred fig ( peepal) as per the shastras for purifying skin.
MY TAKE ON KAMA AYURVEDA TURMERIC AND MYRRH SKIN BRIGHTENING SOAP
Packaging: The soap is quite heavy and bulky and bigger than usual bathing soaps. The sap comes neatly wrapped in a butter paper enclosed in a cardboard box. Since it is a bathing soap, you cannot really carry it along while you travel.
Texture: The soap foams readily when it comes in contact with water. The soaps forms thick and creamy foam which feels moisturizing on the skin.
Fragrance: The soap smells of pure turmeric essential oil which I am not a big fan of.
How I use and after-effects: To use, apply it on your wet skin and massage with your hands or use a loofah. Rinse off and you are done.
The soap feels quite moisturizing and creamy while you apply it but after rinsing it off, the moisturized feel is all gone. It does not make skin dry or something but will definitely do when you use it in the winters. This soap is great for summers and since it is herbal, it will help you fight all summer-skin issues. I do not like using this on my face since my cheeks feel really dry but it works well on the body. I do get some whiteheads few weeks after body waxing and this soap totally helped prevent it! Also, if you have bacne issues of any other skin issues, this soap can help treat it. Now coming to the brightening claim, the soap does have a little brightening effect but only if you use this religiously, although the effect isn’t prominent and you cannot expect this soap to make you fair or anything (in fact you cannot expect that from any soap!). I love the fact that the soap keeps skin clear and free from any issues like bacne or white heads. I give this a thumbs up.
