Aster Luxury Charcoal Fairness Soap Review

Aster recently launched its new variant of handmade soap which is Charcoal Soap. It claims to make skin fair and prevent/control acne. Aster soaps are 100% vegetarian, Paraben, Phthalates and cruelty free. I have tried Aster Aloe Vera and Coffee soaps before and I have liked them. Let’s see how this new variant fared for me.

Aster-Luxury-Charcoal-fairness-soap-reviewMy Experience:

Charcoal is known for its cleansing property and it is used in some beauty products. But, this is the first time I’m using a Charcoal beauty product. Aster Luxury Charcoal fairness soap is a black colored soap which has pleasing scent to it. It is not a foaming soap but it does form enough lather to wash the skin.

As claimed, it performs some fairness action. Yes, my skin appears healthy and glowing after using it. I haven’t felt any dryness or greasy feeling post wash but I think it may be a bit drying in winters. The fragrance last for some time after bathing.

Aster Luxury Charcoal fairness soap also claims to fight acne but I can’t say anything about it as I don’t have any acne problem on my body. But others who have used it says it helps to fight acne. The soap does have exfoliating property as my skin appears soft and clean after bath. I think it will work to remove sun tan.

Overall it is a good soap which does what it claims.
