If you watch my vlogs on YouTube, you'd know how I shared about having problems making my skintone look even. Uneven skintone became a problem for me late last year as a result of regular sun exposure and not wearing sunblock on a daily. The effects started showing after a few months and I told myself I really should take a step and do something about it. Especially that summer is here, and uneven skintone can be a cause of a decrease in one's confidence!
The main problem area? My arms. I've developed brown spots over time and they are not a good sight. I've recently started giving Kojie San products a try (I've heard from friends that this brand's products really DO work, and I wanted to test it out!)
Kojie San has a whole range of lightening products that include a soap, body lotion, a cleanser+toner, and a face cream.
Here's a little background for you -
Kojie San Lightening Soap first entered the market in 2007 as a flagship product from Beauty Elements Ventures, Inc. (BEVI). Kojic Acid formulation turned out to be the key ingredient in convincing whitening fans to become true believers. Today, Kojie San is the #1 Kojic soap in the country.To tell you honestly, I thought Kojie San was a JAPANESE BRAND! But nope, it's purely and proudly Pinoy! How awesome is that?
Kojic Acid was discovered in Japan. It is a by-product of Koji or Malted Rice and used in the production of rice wine. Kojic acid is popularly known for its remarkable whitening effect and antioxidant properties.
Here are the products from the range and their uses:
KOJIE SAN LIGHTENING SOAP 135g: PhP 68
- this soap has high grade Kojic Acid the prevents melanin production for lighter, clearer skin
- it also effectively diminishes dark spots, freckles, acne, plus stretch marks and uneven skin tone
*Why I love it - I love how it did not leave my skin feeling flaky and dry. To prevent this from happening for first time users, it is actually recommended to use the soap every other day (or adjust it accordingly) so as not to 'shock' your skin. The soap lathers rather quickly, and a little goes a long way!
After using the soap, I make sure I moisturize and apply sunblock and I use the:
Kojie San Body Lightening Lotion 200ml: PhP 262
-this lotion contains an advanced formula or Kojic Acid plus rosehip oil that whitens the skin as it heals -it is made for faster absorption to lighten skin in less time
-it also contains collagen + vitamin E that increases youthfulness and skin health
*Why I love it - oh I just LOVE the smell ans feel of this lotion. It actually doesn't even feel like lotion on the skin! Once you spread it, bam! The skin drinks it all up and you are left with a supple skin texture without that icky, sticky feeling. Who wouldn't want that?
Kojie San also has face products:
Kojie San Cleanser + Toner 100ml: PhP 75
-is equipped with Ginseng Extract and Rosehip Oil to revive tired skin
-gets rid of excessive oil while repairing skin damage.
*Why I love it - I expected it to sting on the face, but it did not sting AT ALL. I love how light the formula is and how gentle it is on the skin. I have combination skin type, and this has definitely helped a lot with controlling excess sebum.
Lastly, we have the:
Kojie San Lightening Face Cream 30g: PhP 120
- it has a combination of natural extracts and high-grade Kojic Acid that lightens as it nourishes the skin
-it restores the skin suppleness for a healthy, rosy look
*Why I love it - just like the cleanser+toner, this face cream feels really light on the skin. No sticky after-feel as it is quickly absorbed by the skin leaving it hydrated and supple!
It has only been a few weeks since I started using these, and I am loving all of them! Can't wait to share my beach OOTD's baring skin that is brought to light!
