Product Review: Kojie San Lightening Range- Soap, Lotion, Cleanser + Toner & Face Cream

Monday, May 16, 2016

    Hello dearies! Sharing with you my review of Kojie San Skin Lightening Soap, Kojie San Cleanser + Toner, Kojie San Face Lightening Cream, and Kojie San Body Lightening Lotion after using them for more than a month. I've already made a feature of these products from Beauty Elements Ventures, Inc. (BEVI) last month so I presume that you already know what these are for. Kojic Acid is the main ingredient of Kojie San and this line is intended for skin lightening. 

     Why lightening and not whitening? Well, Kojie San will not just whiten your skin but will lighten it by giving a healthy and youthful glow. I'm a believer of using products religiously to see the maximum results. Applying skin care products from a line or range will be more effective since there will be two or more main ingredient that will work hand-in-hand. So without further ado, here's my honest to goodness review of Kojie San Lightening range below :)

     So for this review, I will share my thoughts and experiences about the entire line like my usual review. You will find below all the things (positive or negative) that I have to say on each product. After using them all for more than a month, I'm satisfied with Kojie San Lightening Range- Soap, Lotion, Cleanser + Toner & Face Cream. 

What I like:

  • The price- affordable and budget-friendly.
  • The packaging is simple and each packaging has product information.
  • The products are all well-sealed upon purchase.
  • Kojie San Lightening Range products has rose hip oil extract which is known to beautify the skin.
  • Kojie San Lightening Range can pass as paraben free as I have not seen any kind of paraben/s in the ingredients.
  • The soap and toner has a smaller size perfect for those who want to try the product first before buying the full-sized one.
  • The scent of Kojie San soap, lotion, and face cream is not overpowering. The soap smells citrusy while the lotion and face cream has a subtle powdery scent. The toner's scent is refreshing.
  • Kojie San Lightening soap doesn't melt fast. It produces a good lather which is easy to rinse making my skin squeaky clean after bath.
  • Kojie San Lightening lotion has a semi-thick thick which is easy to apply. I like that it melts on the skin while application.
  • The lotion is not sticky and non-greasy and a little amount goes a long way.
  • Kojie San Lightening lotion is moisturizing and gives a healthy glow on my skin after use.
  • Kojie San Cleanser and Toner is 2-in-1. A cleanser and toner which I really like.
  • The cleanser and toner literally wipes away dirt. It has a refreshing scent which relaxes my skin after use.
  • Kojie San Cleanser leaves a minty and cooling effect which makes the pores look smaller.
  • No tightness, stinging or dryness of my face after using the toner.
  • Kojie San Lightening Face cream has a thick texture that is easy to spread and apply.
  • The face cream is light on my face and can be used as makeup base. A little amount goes a long way.
  • Kojie San Lightening Range maintained my skin tone and gave it a healthy glow.
  • No breakouts, irritation, or whatsoever that I experienced while using the entire range.
  • Batch, manufacturing, and expiry date is printed on the packaging of each product.
  • Easily accessible.
  • The entire range is promising and I can say that it will help in lightening dark spots and uneven skin tone with continued use but you have to use sunblocks especially if you'll bask under the sun.

What I don't like:

  • The lotion doesn't have SPF.
  • The soap can be drying at times that's why it has to be paired with the Kojie San lotion.

Will I repurchase: Yes, it's in the realm of possibility.

Recommendation:
     I give this a 4.5/5 rating. Kojie San Lightening Range- Soap, Lotion, Cleanser + Toner & Face Cream worked hand-in-in hand to give my dull skin tone a healthy glow that it needs. Since I'm already fair to begin with, I did not see drastic change in my skin tone but there's a kind of lightening I saw especially when I'm outside the house.I also get compliments from friends that the texture of my skin is smoother and pores are less visibly under makeup unlike before.

     Overall, I like the soap, toner, and face cream. I just wish that the lotion comes with SPF but they have another variant of lotion with SPF and I'm not sure if that is pure Kojic Acid. I will recommend the entire range if you're really into whitening and looking for a brand that is very affordable and effective in the long run because skin whitening/lightening is not a walk in the park. You have to use the products religiously for more than a month and continuously for months until you see maximum results.

  1. I like their prices and packaging kaso hindi siya hiyang sa akin. Nagkakaroon ng red spots ung skin ko. Too sad for having a sensitive skin but I heard a lot of good feedback from my friends who use Kojic.

    1. Hello,

      You may use organic/natural lightening soap with brands like All Organics, SNOE, Natura Organics, Japonesa, and Yamashiro. Most/All of these have natural ingredients for whitening pero some talaga are sensitive din even with those labeled as such. Kaya trial and error pa din ang pag gamit ng whitening soap. Usually more than 3 weeks para makita if effective and soap especially if nasa medium or fair side naman ang skin tone mo.

    1. Hi,

      Yes okay lang as long as hindi sobrang dami. Sa first week possible kasi na nag-adjust pa yung skin mo.

  7. If you want to lighten your skin naturally just try Kojie San, Made in the Philippines, the soap contains Kojic acid that has been proved effective in preventing the synthesis of melanin on the skin (the skin darkening pigment). Kojic acid is the bi-product of rice fermentation. It is the first time this acid has been used in the formulation soap.
    Important Note: Kojic Acid is an effective agent in whitening skin,but it may cause dryness.If so,just apply a moisturizer or a hydrating product.

    1. Hi,

      Yes, hindi kasi advisable sa gumagamit ng kojic soap ang palaging naaarawan. If you're using a sunblock na mataas ang spf at lagi ka nag-aaply every 4 hours siguro pwede pa kaya lang hindi ko iaadvise sayo. Nakakaitim ang hangin sa bukid daw sabi ng mga kamag-anak ko sa province.

    1. Hello,

      If you're a first time user of whitening soap especially kojic acid soap may tendency na may purging effect. This should last mga 2 weeks lang. If ever di pa din nag=stop may tendency na di ka hiyang. Saka yung feeling mo na nangigitim siguro dahil namumula nga or nag-aadjust pa yung skin mo. Use sunblock lagi lalo na pag lalabas ng bahay tapos tirik ang araw.

  10. Hi. Can i ask if kojie san lightening cream did not cause any break out in face cause im scared of it.thank you;**

    1. Hi Trixel,

      It still depends on your skin type. If you have sensitive skin it will cause you some reactions.
