    Ease of lathering: 10/10–Lathers very much like an Arko stick.

    Longevity of lather: 10/10–Perfect stability like an Arko stick.

    General skincare: 7/10–Fairly good. The Arko stick is definitely more skin friendly, however.

    Scent: 9/10–The exact same citronella/soapy scent as the Arko stick. I love it.

    Price: N/A/—No clue. It was sent to me in a trade.

    Would I buy again: 8/10–Quite likely. But it wouldn’t ever replace the Arko stick.

    The company which makes this soap is completely different from the one which makes the Arko. In fact they’re located in two different cities - Arko is produced by Evyap International in Istanbul and this one is a product of GZD Cosmetics in Izmir. Apparently there was a lot of controversy when this soap first came out because of the scent and even the packaging is very similar.

    It looks like Arko’s younger brother.
