To be honest, 80% of this blog's views comes from my reviews about whitening soaps. I am not sure why or how those reviews got way too many hits that I am receiving a comment for approval almost every other day. Then it hit me: We Filipinas are really obsessed with having fair skin. Having a fair skin is like being fat or thin here in the Philippines. When you have a family gathering, people will always notice how fair your skin is now compared to the last time they saw you. It's in our culture that we find people with fairer skin more attractive. That was just an epiphany for me before I write yet another review for a whitening product. Ironic, yes.
If you're not familiar with this brand then you're not from the Philippines. Belo is the most-advertised and acclaimed beautifying company in this country. You can see a lot of top endorsers posing for this brand along EDSA to SLEX. Every single day, you'll hear TV hosts thanking Belo for their physical appearance. Heck, they even made a new word -- BELOfied.
Finally, I have tried Sample Room! I had that 100 points in my account since I signed up and I found the product that I want to review in the form of this Belo soap. I got really curious with the mix of Kojic Acid and Tranexamic acid. I was like - "What the hell's a tranexamic acid?", and google answered it for me. To make the long story short, it's like glutathione but cheaper.
What I like about this product is that it doesn't have any scent. It's also affordable for just less than Php 60. The lowdown though is that it melts too quick than a normal Kojic soap. I can safely say that it does whiten. I started using this soap the day I came back from my hiking trip and it successfully revived a shade of my skin.
Overall, I don't have that strong opinion for this soap. Will I buy it again? Honestly, no I can't see myself being attached to this product since it melts too easily. I am still using Kojie San and this is not the soap that will replace it. If you're still curious and want to try this soap, you can click the link below to purchase it online via Lazada:
