Soulflower What A Melon Soap

Hello Friends!
Today I am going to review Soulflower 'What A Melon' soap which I bought during summers.

About Watermelon Soap:
Ever eaten a luscious, delicious watermelon? Well its now time to feed your skin. You get the triple benefit of exfoliator, moisturizer & bacteria fighter all rolled into 1 mouthwatering soap. Your skin will feel fresh & supple, clearer & bright.
This soap is very effective for damaged raw skin, if you have been out in the sun too long, or spend time in the pool or on the beach.

1. Watermelons are rich in vitamins A, B & C that keeps the skin fresh, radiant & hydrated. The juice protects the skin from the sun. It also clears the skin leaving it free from blemishes, fresh and lovely. The fiber content in watermelon ensures toxins are scrubbed out of your system leaving your skin healthy & glowing.
2. Chlorophyll powder, which is made by crushing wheat germ grass, has antibacterial properties making it great for treating of acne, pimples, scarring & blemishes.
3. Green tea protects against sun damage, combats signs of aging, treats inflammatory skin conditions like acne & pimples & soothe cuts and sunburns.
4. Black sesame seeds help skin resist the aging process through the presence of a remarkable water-retentive protein. It can help reverse the effect of sun damage on delicate skin, and rejuvenate tired looking, older skin.

Ingredients List : Fresh watermelon, green tea powder, chlorophyll powder, black sesame seeds, glycerin, aqua, saponified oils of olive, coconut, castor, palm & palm kernel.

Price:Rs 250 for 150 Grams

My Take On This Product:
I like many of the Soulflower soaps and bath salts that I bought from Soulflower India online shopping store during their weekend offer.Many a times you get several of their products at 50% discount or buy one get one free offer during weekends, so never miss out their weekend offers.You can also get their products at several E-Commerce sites at discount.I got this soap after reading its ingredients list and seeing its pictures, moreover I love watermelons as they are hydrating, refreshing and help in clearing blemishes too.This soap bar looks exactly like a watermelon, 3-4th is red in color and 1-4th green in color.It has sesame seeds embedded in it which looks like melon seeds,these are great for exfoliation but I feel these seeds feel scratchy on cheeks, so I don't directly use this soap directly on my face.It has got a tangy and very refreshing fragrance,not exactly of watermelon but really nice.If you have used their watermelon bath salt, then you would know as the fragrance is almost same.This soap bar is bulky like the other Soulflower soaps, so I cut it into two pieces to avoid wastage and melting.Though many of you may find it pricy, I feel its worth the price as these soaps last for long time if you use it on face,I am unable to finish it up entirely.

This soap creates rich lather that removes makeup effectively too, but ya sometimes leaves traces of waterproof makeup.Its a good cleanser and never ever strips off moisture off my skin.It leaves my skin very smooth and bright.It helped me a lot in reducing the size of zits I had on my face during summers.It removes dullness from face and makes it clear.With regular use of this soap along with Lush Aqua Marina Cleanser, I could see significant improvement in my skin tone , it helped in De-tanning too.This soaps soothes raw, sunburnt and irritated skin a lot.I had rashes on my body and this soap helped a lot in soothing the area.This soap is blessing for raw sunburnt skin, I like to use it after eye brow threading too.With regular use, there has been improvement in my skin, my skin looks clear, pores and zits have diminished a lot.

Its gentle enough to use daily on face.This soap does not melt like other organic soaps.This soaps contain watermelon juice which helps in clearing up blemishes, green tea and chlorophyll powder have anti-inflammatory and soothing properties.Soulflower has mentioned that this soap has triple functions:

As far as cleansing is concerned, I am more than satisfied, it never ever makes my skin dry or flaky like other soaps,it removes makeup properly too just sometimes leaves traces of waterproof makeup.

It never strips moisture off my skin but I feel it does not moisturize my skin at all, I feel the need to use a moisturizer after half an hour of using it.

-The sesame seeds help in exfoliation but with regular use, the sesame seeds come to the surface and they feel scratchy on my skin, I do not support their exfoliation claim as the sesame seeds are quit big and coarse and harsh for my skin, they are unevenly distributed too.
-However it has soothing and De-tanning effect on my skin.It reduces zits, soothes sunburnt skin, even rashes.

Pros Of The Product:
-Its an organic soap free from harmful preservatives and SLS.

-Available at several online shopping sites at discount.
-It lasts for a long time, as quantity is good.
-Soothes rashes and irritated skin.
-It contains sesame seeds which look like melon seeds and exfoliates skin.
-It has nice tangy, refreshing fragrance.

Cons Of The Product:
-The sesame seeds are quite harsh on skin, I would suggest not to use it directly on your face.
-For removing tan, one should use it regularly.
-Does not remove stubborn tans.
-I do not support the moisturizing claim made by Soulflower brand.
-It does not exfoliate skin properly, the seeds were just too scratchy that I had to take those out.
