I was recently introduced to the MAKARI products which are made with all natural plant extracts from the earth.
The MAKARI line has no bleach, no chemicals and no hydroquinone, which is known to be harmful to the skin. Instead MAKARI using ingredients as algae, aloe vera, caviar, citric acid, lemon, malic acid, mulberry, salicylic acid, seaweed and vitamin C, to naturally heal and clear the skin.I was really interested to see if the MAKARI skin care line could help even out the blotchy areas in my skin-tone and help give me a more even skin toned look. So I received and review the following items during my usual morning "wash my face' routine
Clarifying Exfoliating Antiseptic Soap - exfoliating soap for face and body.
My Thoughts - The soap doesn't form a bit type lather. It's more sheer and light when applied to my face. It washed off easily and didn't leave my skin feeling tight or dry.
Skin Repairing Clarirying Serum - helps remove unwanted pigmentation, discoloration, dark spots, acne scars. Etc.
My Thoughts - The serum is very potent. A little goes along way. It goes on smooth, hydrates really well and leave a bit of a sheen to the face.
Body Milk - gently hydrates, even tones, and protects the skin.
My Thoughts - The body milk is scent, which if your sensitive to you should be aware off. It very rich and full bodied but smooths over the skin and blends in well. I used all over my body and was pleased that my skin didn't turn ashy and dry in a few hours. The milk kept my skin hydrated.
Overall the products are well made for black skin. I used them for a few weeks and no break outs or blemishes. I do see a difference in the smoothness of my face. There was also some evening out of my skin-tone but it's subtle. I think with continued use there will be more of a difference.
Also the products are made to work together. Perhaps if combined with other products from the skin care line I might see a more dramatic change. I checked the website to see the other products I could use and found out about the Night Treatment Cream
The Night Treatment Cream claims "after just one application of this intensively nourishing and hydrating cream, you wake up to younger-looking, blemish free, more even skin" That's some powerful stuff. Right now it's on sale for 30% off!
While on the website I noticed they have a store in Harlem area. I visited the store to learn about their other products. To see my photos visit my Google + photo album: Black Skincare with Makari Products Line
