I've already told you how I use the Camaru Bamboo Charcoal soap to spot-treat pimples on my face. I haven't tried cleansing my entire face with the soap as it can be very drying, but I can attest to how much this bar can brighten my body in a few weeks' use.
I suggest you:
I suggest you:
- use it twice a day
- work the soap into a rich lather on the body
- let the soap sink in the skin for 5-10mins (only for the first week; succeeding weeks, I don't wait for the soap to get completely absorbed into the skin)
- use Vaseline Healthy White lotion after bathing
- use Asian Secrets Lulur thrice a week to ensure optimum effects of any whitening product on the skin
It stung like crazy when I allowed the soap to sink into my skin during the first week. My body (and hands!) exfoliated intensely which didn't look very pleasant at all. Thanks to the bits of patience left in me, I reaped impressive benefits after 3 weeks of using the bamboo charcoal soap.
Coping With Its Imperfections
It only becomes very drying on the early stages of using the soap. Unlike the Psalmstre Placenta Soap, this does not consistently leave your skin dry. Also, following up with a highly moisturizing lotion helps keep the skin from looking dehydrated.
Battling the unpleasant scent only happens when you rinse the soap off. The bamboo charcoal soap's lather stinks that it's a challenge to let it stay on the skin. Follow up with a fragrant soap to end up smelling delish when you step out of the shower!
Gets Quickly Used Up
The soap is too soft and because you need to work it into a lather, it gets soaked too long in the water using up too much product. To thrift on a P125 bar, I cut it into sections. It is also smart to store it in a well-draining soap dish far from the shower.
Gets Out-of-Stock Easily
The Camaru Naturals Bamboo Charcoal soap made it to my list of best whitening soaps I've used to date! It may not have lightened the skin significantly as what Psalmstre Placenta soap did for me, but I was pleased with how my skin improved with a tinge of glow and suppleness.
