Hope you had a great weekend! Mine was not much. I went to parlour yesterday and today I just relaxed the whole day, reading some books and doing nothing. Evening, I went out for a walk and had a dabeli and coffee. 😀
Today, am going to introduce you to a new brand, Juicy Chemistry. The name itself looks tempting no? I loved Chemistry during my school days and always scored well in that. I used to love the Organic Chemistry chapters especially. Remember benzene structure and CH3COOH formulae? 😄 I hated Physics though, mostly because I didn’t understand half the things.

All their products are biodegradable and made with natural ingredients that pose no risk to the water ways, marine life, and human health.

I love handmade soaps and when Juicy Chemistry sent me this Carrot Skin Rehab Soap along with a natural loofah, I was super happy. The soap is specially meant for scarred/damaged skin. The soap contains a whole lot of impressive ingredients. To know in detail about the goodness of each ingredient, check here.
The packaging came in a superb hand weaved pack as you can see in the pictures. Its recyclable and its really cute how they have designed it.
I love carrots and anything made with carrots – gajar halwa, carrot kheer, carrot juice. When I received this soap, it looked exactly like solidified gajar halwa. I mean the color and texture. Only the saffron strands were missing. I couldn’t wait to try it out. Who wouldn’t like bathing in gajar halwa! However, on using it, I realized it didn’t have a sweet base, but rather a warm, spicy scent. Being a warm scent lover, I don’t have anything to complain. But still my imaginations of bathing in kesar gajar halwa was gone!
The soap is yellow in color and has mild scrub particles of adzuki beans. Adzuki beans are the common red beans (cowpea beans) that we use in cooking. These scrub particles help in mild everyday exfoliation. The soap lathers moderately. And the fresh, spicy scent lingers on you for sometime even after bathing. It makes the whole bathroom smell fresh!
After drying, I can feel my skin cleansed, smooth and soft. Thanks to the goodness of various oils and butters. Once you start using these handmade soaps with loads of goodness, trust me, you will never go back to your regular drugstore soaps. They are harsh on the skin and dry out skin excessively. With this soap, I have skipped moisturizer many times, yet still didn’t feel any dry, stretchy feeling and my skin was nourished. Also, I had some back acne and the soap was very effective in curing them as stated in the product claims.
The soap doesn’t melt much unlike other handmade soaps and retains its shape. I use the loofah twice a week along with the soap for deep exfoliation. The loofah is made of natural plant fibre and is skin-friendly unlike the plastic loofahs we get in the market.
The price is surely expensive for a soap. It is of high quality, I can agree for sure. But still I wish it were around Rs.300 – 400. It is one of the most expensive soaps I have ever used.
Juicy Chemistry also offers international shipping, so if you are living abroad too, you can take a look at their website and order a bunch of products.
Does it satisfy its claims?
Yes, it satisfies all its claims. It treats acne, exfoliates and cleanses pores, soothes itchy skin, retains moisture, nourishes and conditions the skin.
What I like:
* Cleanses skin well without drying it.
* Mild daily exfoliation.
* The various oils and butters provides nourishment and conditions skin.
* Makes skin smooth and soft.
* Treats acne.
* Soothes dry, itchy skin.
* Hand-weaved recyclable packaging.
* Free from parabens, phthalates, and sulphates.
Suggestions for improvements:
* Very expensive. Reduce the price to Rs.300 – 400.
* Make another version of it which smells like sweet kesar gajar halwa. And I will pay Rs.850 for that 😛
Would I recommend?
Yes, if you can invest in it.
Would I repurchase?
Maybe. But I would like to try their other variants of soaps.
IBeautySpy Rating: 4.5/5
Though I didn’t have a sweet gajar halwa bathing experience, nevertheless the soap really impressed me both with its effects as well as the warm, spicy scent. Its really expensive. But considering all the nourishing natural ingredients put in it, it is worth a shot.
