The BamShell Thoughts>>>

I've already lost count on how many whitening soaps I've used for the past 15 years of my life (yes, I started with CY gabriel at 14 yrs old) and I still get giddy on trying the new ones in the market. Carrot soap is not something new to me, I've already tried the one from cyleina and shulammite; both delivered good results. 

Honestly, I find carrot soap somewhat similar to kojic soap, in terms of color, scent, both melts easily, produces mircropeel and most of the time, they have the same results. The difference though, carrot soap is more gentle especially for face , softer, no tingling sensation and definitely less drying than Kojic, however, in terms of skin whitening, I'd say Kojic whitens faster than carrot soap.

It's actually "Lei" my sister discovered GT carrot soap as this is one of the most raved in GirlTalk. We've been using this for about a month now so I can't really say anything about its anti aging claims, but I can say that  I'm liking it so far since I try to stay away from drying whitening soaps at the moment. Overall, if you have sensitive skin but would like to use a whitening soap that's affordable, this is definitely worth a try.

Tip

  • If you find your soap melts easily, cut it into squares and use a wooden soap dish.
