A few days back I Had received a lovely bag of sample products from Makari. It contained these - 
  • 2 Makari Whitening Exfoliating Soap of 30 grams/1.05 oz each
  • 2 sachets of Makari Creme Clear - Acnyl Cream
Box containing the Samples

A peep inside the Box

Today I will be reviewing Makari De Suisse Clarifying Exfoliating Antiseptic Soap. I have used this soap for 10 days now. Time for the review.

A soap for face ?? I am surenot many of us would hate the idea of using a soap on delicate facial skin, but Makari De Suisse Clarifying Exfoliating Antiseptic Soap is an exception.

Lets take a closer look at the Soap

About Makari 

Makari (pronounced muh-ka-ree) is a premium skin whitening and clarifying brand that was primarily created to fulfil the needs of the coloured population in the US and Europe. The Makari range of products are high end and formulated to work on female as well as male skins. Our skin whitening & clarifying products have been tested by the University of Montpellier for safety and efficacy.

The Makari brand was created about a decade ago by New York based entrepreneur Jack Aini in partnership with a renowned Belgian chemist Maurice Bertrand. It is their partnership that has created Makari, the worlds largest range of skin care products specifically for Whitening and Clarifying. All our products are manufactured as per GMP guidelines (for the pharmaceutical industry) at our facility in Aigle in the Swiss canton of Vaud. Our products adhere to the strictest norms in quality applicable in Europe and the US, which makes us the preferred skin care whitening product in those 2 continents.

People with skin problems such as hyper-pigmentation, melasma, liver spots, age spots, stretch marks etc had to make do with products that either had a very high chemical content to make them effective (and also loaded with harmful side effects) or had formulations that were so mild that they rarely had any effect. Makari was created with a vision to formulate products that were natural, safe and affordable and at the same time very effective.

The main Whitening agent for Makari products is Vegeclarine. Vegeclarine is a 100% natural plant extract and is a very effective skin Whitening and Clarifying agent. Makari also has a range of skin care products that use Caviar Extracts in addition to Vegeclarine to combine the needs of consumers for Whitening and Ageing. Caviar has been proven to reduce the incidence of age and expression lines making the skin plumper, more supple and makes you look younger. Makari products are available at its stores in Paris, Brussels and New York. Our products are also available in over 50 countries worldwide. We hope that you have an enriching experience after using our products.

My Experience with the Makari Soap 

I used the soap on my face as well as body. True to its claim, it can be used on all skin types. I have normal to dry body skin whereas my face has a mix and match of different types of skins. My T-zone is very oily and within 30 minutes of washing my face, my nose starts to shine like a disco ball. On the other hand, my cheeks are very dry and need intense hydration even in harsh summers. After using this soap on my face, My dry patches felt only slightly stretchy. A tiny dab of moisturizer and I was happy.

The soap has a very nice fragrance. When I first opened the box, I could smell fragrance even from outside the pouch in which it was placed. The fragrance may be a bit strong for someone with a sensitive nose, but I am not complaining. Coming to the exfoliation part, the exfoliation beads are a bit sparse for me because I like my exfoliating products which have a large quantity of exfoliation. The beads were pretty gentle till first few uses. But after about 6-7 uses, I felt like the beads were quite abrasive and could scratch skin if rubbed strongly.  The best way to use this is to wet your hands and rub soap in between them and then apply on skin. I had tiny bumps on my forehead which were not exactly acne but numerous home remedies and creams  did not cure them. After using this soap, I could see a drastic improvement in texture of skin on my forehead.

The tiny black particles are the exfoliating beads

The good about the Makari De Suisse Clarifying Exfoliating Antiseptic Soap 

  • The fragrance is too good. (Heavenly!!) The fragrance feels so refreshing in this hot muggy weather.
  • Can be used on all skin types. The dry patches on my face did not feel extremely dry compared to other soaps (which I used years ago for face)
  • The soap is very mild and did not lead to acne, break outs. 
  • The Blackheads on my super oily nose also vanished. 
  • I had tiny bumps on my forehead which were not exactly acne but numerous home remedies and creams  did not cure them. After using this soap, I could see a drastic improvement in texture of skin on my forehead.
  • I did not get any new pimples since I have been using this soap.
  • Gives a squeaky clean feeling.
  • The hexagonal shape makes it easier to use.
  • Does not melt much in water.

The BAD about the Makari De Suisse Clarifying Exfoliating Antiseptic Soap 
  • Price - The price is a bit too much for a soap.  
  • Available only through online. 
To buy or not to buy ?
Yes, my only hope is they give 50% discount on all products, so I can stock upon them. :-P
