Remember that Filipino women notion before that having whiter skin is the prettiest? Well, I do. Back when I was in high school, it was a common thinking for a Filipino woman, teenager in particular, to wish to have whiter skin and to hate her natural dark color. As a result, during that time, almost everyone was using whitening products just to achieve the lighter skin that they were hoping to have. But me, I was happy with the medium skin color that I have that I did not consider trying any whitening products until I got so tanned due to summer outings and adventures. Freaking out is the best word to use as the school year was about to start and I was not confident with the way I looked with darker skin. As a result, I tried applying different products such as soaps, lotions and creams, but it did not work well as there were no effects that happened. Thus, I asked my aunties for some advices.
First they told me to use this certain product that will make my skin peel and will get my natural color back quickly, however, I was afraid to use or even try such product that will cause peeling especially that I have sensitive skin. Subsequently, they advised me to try Kojie San, which what they were using everyday. I was sure at that time that what they were pertaining was the thin and orange soap that I saw once in their bathroom but did not know what exactly it was for – thin because apparently, they slice the soap into thin pieces to maximize it rather than letting the soap dissolve by water.
I was a bit hesitant to buy at first as I thought it would cost me too much, but then, I learned that the soap was just for less than 100 bucks and was on buy one take one promo! Hence, I tried the product.
I can say that Kojie San is definitely a quick fix that you can already see the effect after weeks of continuous use. It effectively diminishes dark spots, freckles, acne, stretch marks and unevenness. Plus, its high-grade Kojic Acid prevents melanin production for lighter, clearer skin. Also, its chemicals are not too strong that it did not cause my skin asthma to react and you can get one for just Php 68!
And now, what started as a small business in 2007 has now grown into one of the country’s biggest names in skin lightening and currently added more whitening products:
