Hello Hello…YES, I AM BACK!!!.
Today’s review is on PR FRANCOISE BEDON PARIS LOTION in CARROT. I have searched and searched for a comprehensive review of this product everywhere on Youtube and google but I didn’t seem to find any but then I noticed this lotion rather popular in the market.
PR FRANCOISE BEDON PARIS CAROTTE lotion is a lightening body lotion. The lotion promises to provide nutritious moisturizing care to your skin containing plant extracts, carrot oil, and Vitamin E. It comes in a 500ml white bottle with its content never full. The lotion has a very very thick white consistency with one of the most awful smells I ever encountered with lotions! Honestly, If you are someone like me who values smell over a lot of other things then honey, this is not for you.
Price; 4,500 – 6000 naira. Price may vary depending on your location.

- Based on my mum’s skin I can say it moisturized her skin very well.
- Lightened my mum’s skin up to 2 shades and maintained.
- Serves as a good base cream for pro-mixing.
- Does not smell good at all.
- It is too thick.
- Broke my skin out. The worst break out I’ve ever had.
This lotion was introduced to me first in 2016 and gave me the worst experience. I literally looked sick with tiny rashes all over my face, neck, and chest. They itched so badly. To also mention that I got darker. It was not good for me at all. Immediately gave it to my mum and to my biggest surprise she loved it!.
She kept asking me to get it for her. This year, I decided to give it a second try again. For a few days, all looked well. I decided that maybe it is not so bad until I broke out! Again! This time it came in the form of pimples that itched so bad. My face was itching like no man’s business. Whenever I would go out, I would spend a lot of time just itching the pimples on my face.
However, until this day my mum still uses this lotion, she loves it. The lotion evened out her skin, lightened her gradually, and for mature skin, she looked good with that lotion.
If you are fair-skinned and you want to maintain your skin tone or brighten your skin tone then this is a good buy. It does not lighten too much. It does brighten and lightens to about 1 or 2 shades. Also, you can actually mix this lotion with the serum or any other serum of choice, I found that it is a good base cream for mixing. Although I cannot confirm how individual skins would react to this lotion.
Rating:1/10. (This rating is based on my skin preference but not based on my mum’s skin). based on my mum’s experience I would rate this an 8/10.
Now, If you have sensitive skin or acne-prone skin you might want to do a test patch before you actually purchase this lotion or trying mixing the lotion with an anti-reaction cream, otherwise you could be taking a huge risk. I had the worst experience with this lotion and I have a sensitivity and I do not wish on my enemy what I experienced with this lotion.
