I always have this thing about Beauty Bars. I have in fact tried a lot of different soaps back in the days but I stopped and just stick to my ever favorite Dove soap. However, as we age our skin changes and suffers from different types of skin problems, one of which is Uneven skin tone. Let’s face it guys, living in a tropical country like the Philippines, this is I guess one of the major skin dilemma we Filipinos face.
I tan easily and it was only last month that I’ve noticed that certain areas of my body are a few shades darker than the rest. I kind of blame myself because I was too lazy to bring an umbrella with me when I go out or buy myself a sunscreen protection. So I had to switch from my favorite Dove soap to Kojie San lightening soap. The first time I heard of this soap was a couple of years back, from my cousins. They were telling me to try it because it helped whiten their skin, plus, it’s affordable. I never tried it because I don’t need it, until today. I’m not really into wanting my skin super fair, okay? I’m just into skin lightening and getting my skin tone even.
I know for a fact that relying to whitening soap alone isn’t enough but I know this would help at least a little bit and I’m a believer I believe that following directions and religiously using the product will give you maximum results. I’ve been using Kojie San Skin Lightening soap for almost a month now and I’m ready to make a review.

I bought one that came with 3 bars then cut each bars into two to make it last for at least a month. After finishing my first 3 bars, I noticed a slight change on my skin. I’m certain that my skin looks lighter than before, darker parts of my body looks lighter too but not drastically tho and the acne marks on my face look less visible. I use this once a day on my face and body and leave it on for 1-2 minutes because it sting a little so leaving it on for more than 2 minutes gives me an itchy feeling but it’s bearable. I also love the orange-citrus smell of it and it lathered generously that it gives me a fresh feeling after every bath. The downside is that, the bar melts down easily but cutting it into 2 pieces would do the trick to make it last longer. One thing I don’t like is it makes my skin extra dry. I have dry skin to start with and making it even more dry is a no! no! for me so I have to apply my face and body moisturizer all the time. Btw., Applying moisturizer is a must!

Will I repurchase?
Yes, but there are other soaps I want to try. Getting a fairer skin is not my objective here, again I just want to get my skin complexion particularly my face, elbows and knees and this soap gives me hope.
I would recommend this product to beginners who wants to lighten their skin tone and looking for a trusted brand that offers inexpensive but effective lightening soap. In my case though, since I have dry skin, I had to stop using it for a while and look for other soaps to try. In a nutshell, Kojie San lightening soap does what it claims but remember what works for me may not work for you, vise versa. Did it work for you?

Thanks a lot!
