Hello ladies. I’m back again after a very long vacation. This blog post is about what soap I’m using to maintain my fair skin.
I was always asked by my friends, relatives and sometimes by my followers on instagram on to which whitening soap would I recommend them? So for all those who are in search of a whitening soap with a faster effect, here’s what you’re looking for.
Are you guys excited to hear my story? Ok, here it goes…
☆This is my own opinion based from my experience and I was not paid to do this review.
Back in 2010 when I got home from my 3 years work in Japan, many are amazed on how fair and glowing my skin is. (Knowing the good weather of Japan, it really made my skin fairer) Ofcourse, I love the attention and it’s so flattering. So I thought how am I able to maintain that in this kind of weather? (Philippines) Then my brother was using a placenta soap on his face and his face is so noticeable. So I tried using it too. It was a good product but I read from some reviews on the internet that Kojic soap is better. So I searched for a kojic soap in the market and luckily, I found Kojiesan. So why kojiesan out of the other kojic soaps in the market? Believe it or not, it is because of the picture of a geisha on the packaging. Geisha is very popular in Japan. Knowing that geisha has that super white face characteristic, I thought maybe this soap can make me as white as a geisha (kidding aside). After months of using it, some would say that my skin becomes fairer. So I used the soap as my maintenance soap for like 3 consecutive years. Yes, I was that loyal and I’m proud. But kojiesan is a bit drying on skin. So you really have to put on a lotion after taking a bath.
How I use it: I lather the soap on my entire body and let it stay there for 5 to 10 minutes before rinsing. The effect will be seen in a week, I swear. Kojiesan can be use on both face and body depending on your likeness. Like me, I used it mostly on my body. Sometimes on my face but not most of the time since it’s drying. The soap is drying so I use a moisturizing soap after using this soap.
I really love the soap but I got tired of using this soap because I thought my skin is fair enough. I have tried many soaps, not whitening soaps this time but more of a moisturizing soaps. Sometimes, I still buy my favorite Kojiesan soap but I don’t use it as frequently as before. Not until the day I decided to go back to this product because I’m having tan lines now because I have to bring my child in school at 1:00 P.M. He doesn’t have a school service because his school is just a 5 minute walk from our house.(Imagine the sun at 1:00 P.M.!🌞)
So there, I decided to buy the soap again, along with the other products from Kojiesan since I have proven how effective and how promising the product is. Here’s my latest haul: I got myself a kojic soap ofcourse, a toner, a lightening cream for the face and a lightening lotion with SPF25 for my body. So here’s what I got:
5 items for only 500.50Php. I’m so excited to try the other items from Kojiesan and I’ll be sharing the experience with you again. (Good or bad) Here’s a short description for each items:
