Product Review: Japonesa Face and Body Bar Soap

Monday, October 26, 2015

     Hi dearies! I'm excited to reveal the latest whitening soap that I'm using as of the moment. I've been using this face and body bar for more than a month now. For my long time readers, you know me already when it comes to product reviews. I make sure that I use a whitening product for at least three to four weeks before sharing my experience. For the nth time, I have fair skin but it's uneven and I guess lacks nutrition. Yes, using whitening products makes the skin "oh so good" to look at but the question "is your white skin healthy?" will arise.

     With this realization, I think I've stripped off some nutrients present on my skin because some of the whitening soap that I've used before will just whiten my skin and that's the end. What if there's a soap that will help maintain or achieve fair, bright, young skin and healthy at the same time. We need to nourish our skin and that nourishment is something Japonesa Face and Body Bar can offer. This face and body bar is a SKIN FOOD! Intrigued? See the ingredients below and learn more why I highly recommended this promising product. Something that will be a mainstay in my bath essentials :)

  • Japonesa bar soap is a Japanese soap that has different benefits from head to toe.

  • It has ingredients that's a first in organic whitening soap. 

Product Review: Japonesa Face and Body Bar Soap
     After more than a month of using this creamy face and body bar religiously, I'm impressed with the results. I decided to stop using other skin care products related to whitening like whitening lotion and cream. I can attest to the effectiveness of this creamy bar because in a span of thirty days, my skin maintained its color, looks healthier than before and there's a pinkish undertone when I'm outside the house. At first I though I'm getting dark but my sisters told me that I'm still fair and there's a certain brightness.

Product Review: Japonesa Face and Body Bar Soap
The soap is wrapped in a special Japanese paper. You can see the engraved brand name and logo of the soap once you open the wrapper.

What I like:

  • It's made of organic ingredients.
  • Japonesa Face and Body Bar is infused with lactoferrin and probiotics, first in the organic whitening soap department. 
  • It's a lightening, anti-aging face and body bar that's also great for sensitive skin.
  • The scent- smells so DIVINE! It's so luxurious, first time to try a soap that smells like vanilla. 
  • The packaging is attractive and has a luxurious feel because of the engraved logo.
  • Aside from the box packaging, the soap inside the box is wrapped in Japanese paper.
  • The soap produces a very rich creamy lather.
  • I don't need to worry if I left the soap in my soap dish despite the hot weather. Even if this is hand made, no signs of melting happened. I was able to use the bar until the very last shape. It's amazing how it can withstand the weather.
  • The price- if I'll do the math it's affordable as one bar will really last more than a month with daily use.  
  • It's multi-purpose- can be used from head to toe. Face and body bar, shampoo for hair and scalp, and feminine wash too.
  • My skin feels soft and velvety smooth after every wash. 
  • It maintained my skin tone despite the hot weather.
  • Made my skin glowing and bright.
  • Exfoliates really well! I can see dead skin big time every time I scrub my body.
  • Japonesa Face and Body Bar is available in two sizes: 120 g and 70 g. I can say that the later is great for travelling. No need to bring bulky soap with you when you go on a trip.
  • Made some dark spots and blemishes caused by pimples appear lighter after a month of everyday use. 
  • Though I'm not sure on the anti-aging effect, I noticed that my skin became supple. I thought I'm getting dark but there's this "namumula" (rosy/healthy tinge) on my skin.
  • Complete batch, manufacturing and expiry date printed on the box.

What I don't like:

  • Not easily accessible. It's available at UNIMART Greenhills and in their physical store only as of the moment.

Will I repurchase? YES, definitely! This soap is back-up worthy.

     I give this soap a 5/5 rating. Another organic soap that I'll include on my top list, another holy grail material as I'm very much impressed on the performance.  I have very sensitive skin that's prone to redness and irritation. I'm glad that no negative reactions arise on my skin from the very first use. I highly recommend this Japonesa Face and Body Bar if you like to have healthy-white and young skin.  Japonesa Face and Body Bar is proud to be an organic and all natural Pinoy brand! Made from high quality raw materials, not tested on animals (cruelty free) and made in the Philippines.

     I know that there are so many whitening and anti-aging soaps in the market today. Read the ingredients carefully and see what it can do to your skin. This is my honest opinion about the product. The ingredients in this soap are promising and I think the first to offer Lactoferrin and Probiotic in one bar. Would you like to  Japonesa Face and Body Bar a try?

Good Times!~
