Product Review: Be Organic Papaya Kojic Soap

Friday, September 06, 2013

     On my trip to Robinson's Galleria a month ago, I saw a big kiosk of SESOU store. It's a store where you can buy everything organic, from head to toe! They also sell general cleaning items and other stuff that's environment friendly. This is the store where I first met my favorite All Organics Soaps that I still purchase from time to time. I was looking for my favorite All Organics Calamansi variant that time but it's OOS. I was contemplating if I'll get another fave, the Singkamas variant or try another organic brand. Well, trying another brand can be risky for me now since my skin's condition these past few days was very sensitive. Breakouts here and there and my old skin care regimen seems not working anymore. So even though I was skeptical on trying an new organic brand, I still pursued buying one from Be Organic. 

     My skin concerns as of the moment are tiny bumps like whiteheads that will turn into zits after a few days, rough and dry cheeks and some oiliness on my chin and nose. I know that the cause of this is hormonal. I already went to my OB-Gynecologist to have a general check up. Anyhoo, there are four variants of Be Organic soap that time and I have my eyes glued on the Papaya Kojic soap. I was brave enough to try kojic soap because I already tried this variant of soap from different brands before. What's new to me is the combination of Papaya and Kojic.  I've been using the soap for more than three weeks now and the results are erratic. I guess the effects on my skin is not because of the soap but mainly the hormonal changes that I've been going through.

Achieve that flawless, blemish free, and younger looking skin in no time, Kojic Acid is a mushroom extract, and used to lighten discoloration such as freckles and age spots. It penetrates the skin and goes into deep cellular layers to inhibit dark pigmentation from forming. Azelaic and Glycolic acids effectively kill acne causing bacteria, control excess oil production and speed up skin cells turn over to reveal glowing new skin.

Product Review: Snoe White Organic Papaya Beauty Bar

Thursday, February 07, 2013

     Finally, I'll be sharing my thoughts on this soap after using it for more than 3 weeks now. You now that I love Snoe white soaps sooo much! This is my 5th variant of soap from Snoe and methinks their soap was formulated for my skin. From Vitamin C Rich CalamansiOrganic Green Papaya, The Special Black Bleaching Bar, Special Kojic and Glutathione soaps that I considered award-winning in terms of whitening department, here's another soap from Snoe to love. I'm also adding this soap on the list above because I also find this effective in terms of whitening but it's very gentle on skin. So if you're confused and don't know what soap to choose among the 10 variants, then Organic Papaya will be the best bet for sure. 

     When you visit the FB page of Snoe Beauty particularly on Snoe White beauty soaps, you'll see a chart where you can select a soap bar that can give you 2 or 3 results in just one bar. This chart already indicated the variant of soap depending on your skin needs. But always remember that each soap will have different reactions on each individual because we have different skin types and conditions. I'm hoping that you'll also consider some factors like your age and make sure you know if you're allergic to one of its ingredients so that you can have peace of mind in trying new soaps. Now here it is, my honest to goodness review of another soap that I'm sure you'll see on my next haul posts :D Enjoy reading!

Our papaya soap is made only from carefully hand-selected fresh papaya fruits to ensure effectively white skin. It gently exfoliates the skin to eliminate the dark pigmentation and blemishes for a fairer and whiter complexion.

  • Doesn't melt fast.
  • Smells divine! The best scent among the papaya soaps I've tried.
  • This soap is gentle even on my sensitive face even if I leave the lather for more than 2 minutes, no itchiness or redness. (But don't leave it for more than 3 minutes, it's always best to follow what's instructed, right?)
  • There's a certain glow on my skin after use.

     I give this soap a 4.5/5 rating. Use the soap as instructed. Not to be used for sensitive skin. Always use sunblock with spf 30 or higher to protect your skin from the sun. There's 10 variants of Snoe white soaps to try and it's formulated to cater every skin need. Yay! This is the 5th variant of soap from Snoe that I'm also loving now. It's gentle and mild in terms of whitening. I guess I have to make this another substitute in my HG snoe soaps so that my skin will have a resting period and will not be immune to those ingredients. I highly recommend this soap, my skin loves it! Methinks of making combo soaps after trying all the 10 variants so that I can recommend which soap goes best with. 

     What SNOE variant combo do you think will suit your skin needs? Share away dearies?

Good Times!~

November and December Hauls

Monday, December 31, 2012

     Before the year ends, I would like to squeeze in pending posts from my November and December haul. Since I'm on a tipid mode, I only bought few products for the last two months. Some products here are my HG's while some were purchased just to try if they're worth of my tight budget. 

     Before the Glorietta Vibe fashion show walk, I decided to buy a makeup remover wipes that can melt waterproof mascara without using an eye makeup remover. I think it's more convenient than bringing a bottle of eye makeup remover and cotton balls during the event. I also bought this foot socks and nail polish remover wipes for my feet. The Mondes Ionic Keratin hair treatment was purchased out of curiosity. I'm not happy with the product, I develop pimples and wound like itchy flakes on my scalp. I guess I'm allergic to one of its ingredient but I don't know what to pinpoint :(
Foot socks
Tony Moly Floria Cleansing Tissues
Mondes Ionic Keratin Treatment
Wish Nail Polish Remover
     I also bought a back up of my favorite makeup remover wipes- Purederm  just in case my skin will react to Tony Moly Floria makeup remover wipes. This soap was given by my SIL when I visited my parents house. I was surprise when I read the label that it's manufactured by Splash- a local company selling beauty and bath products. But this was only sold through their direct-selling line like that of AVON. So now Splash is also making it's way on direct-selling, let's wait and see if they'll make noise this 2013. You know how I love Asian Secrets, and based on my experience this body scrub already replaced my first love on Abonne. I find this more convenient to use and doesn't hurt my skin if I use the scrub everyday!

Asian Secrets Lulur Body Scrub
Seriously White Gluathione Soap
Purederm Makeup Cleansing Tisuues

     My last haul for this year came from Snoe. Yay for new variants: Licorice and Organic Papaya :) I bought these two from a BOGO sale at Cinderella. The SA their informed me that they're having a sale so I grabbed the opportunity. I already reached my third month of using the black bleaching soap so I need to rest my skin from bleaching and use a milder one. When Ms. Jen of Snoe suggested the Special Kojic and Glutathione combo as a substitute for black bleaching I followed her and loving the results! 

     My sister just gave me this toner to try. At first I was hesitant because I find this toner too strong for my thin skin. But Janet's review of Eskinol convinced me to try this product. Let's see if this product will fare good on my skin.

Product Review: SNOE White Organic Green Papaya

Saturday, March 31, 2012

     Hi, Im back! As promised, I'll share with you my experience on Snoe White's Organic Green Papaya after two weeks of using it. If your like me who loves reading every bit of information on product labels, you will see its claim of whiter skin in two weeks. If I were to gauge the soap on the whitening department, I can say that two weeks time is such a short period to see its effectiveness because in my own experience on using different whitening soaps, it takes more than a month of using it religiously. Well maybe its only me and my "balat sibuyas" skin (thin skin) that is immune to whitening products so it takes a lot of time to achieve maximum results. But oh boy, I'm amazed with this soap because I can see drastic changes on my skin within a short span of time given that I stayed more than 5 hours exposed in the sun around 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. last week. So here's my take on organic green papaya soap, my new HG soap :)

image taken from
 No.8 Snoe White Organic Green Papaya Beauty Bar
Green Papaya's papain enzyme has been proven to be 50 to 100 times stronger than other similar natural natural whitening ingredients and it helps dissolve dead and damage skin resulting to a fairer and more radiant skin. See dramatic whitening results in a short span of two weeks.
size: 150g 

price: 139.75 php (Around $3.25)

place bought: Landmark, Trinoma

instruction for use: wet skin, lather beauty bar and apply thoroughly. leave on skin for 2 minutes. expect a slight tingling or prickly sensation. rinse thoroughly. for best results use sunblock with spf30 after bathing.

ingredients: Green Papaya Pulp, Bearberry and Fruit Extracts, Vitamin C and E, Jojoba Oil, High Grade Coconut Oil

What I like:
  • It's organic!
  • Cute packaging.
  • Doesn't sting my eyes. 
  • Doesn't melt fast.
  • The scent is not overpowering.
  • Smooth and gentle on my skin.
  • There's a lightening on dark marks in my legs caused by insect bites.
  • Easily accessible.
  • Affordable.
What I don't like:
  • No batch, manufacturing and expiry date 
Will I repurchase? Yes! I'm on my second bar now. I'm itching on trying other variants but I want to use it religiously to see maximum results.

     I give this soap a 4.25/5 rating. Use the soap as instructed. Organic soap does not contain any  soap hardener and our hot humid weather will make the soap melt faster. I always cut the soap in half. I highly recommend this soap, my skin loves it!

     Have you tried this variant of Snoe White soap?Thanks for sharing!

Good Times!~


Product Review: A Bonne Spa White C Salt

Saturday, November 26, 2011

     Hi dearies! I noticed that I'm soooo lazy these past few days and have long due posts waiting to be published. Methinks it's time to start reviewing on skin care products again. If you're a reader of my blog since August, prolly you'll know that most of my product review have been tried and tested by yours truly for more than a year. I think this time span is long enough to prove the effectiveness of one product. So now I'll share with you another great and cheap, should I say dirt cheap but so effective product. 
     Introducing *drum roll please* A Bonne' Spa White C Salt. This product is composed of fine-grained spa salt enriched with milk protein. This is an all-in-one skin treatment without causing irritation, it gently removes grime, sweat and pollutants from skin pores which cause body odor and reveals white, smooth and younger-looking skin. Scrubbing will improve blood circulation, giving your skin a healthy glow right after use.

     It contains MILK PROTEIN that helps skin to retain moisture, prevent dryness and roughness, giving skin lasting radiance and LEMON and PAPAYA extract to lighten tone, giving it a fairer and more radiant look.

size: 350g

price: 67.50php (Around $1.55)

place bought: Watson's Health and Beauty Store Sm Fairview

instruction for use: Pour spa salt on your palm and scrub gently on wet skin using circular movement. Leave it on for 3 minutes and rinse off with water. Continue your shower routine.

ingredients: Sodium Chloride, Bentonite, Kaolin, Dermawhite, Allantoin, Milk Protein, Lemon Extract, Papaya Extract

What I like:
  • The scent is citrusy with a hint of papaya that smells good and not overpowering.
  • Really does the job in exfoliating the skin. I see a glowing effect after use.
  • Skin feels soft after scrubbing. There's also suppleness and no need for lotion.
  • The price is really cheap!
  • There's a batch number, expiration date printed on the package.
What I don't like:
  • The scent doesn't last long on my skin.
  • The grains may hurt if you rub it directly on dry skin. 
Will I repurchase? Yes! This is a staple in my bathroom.

     I give this a 5/5 rating.  It's my HG body scrub. I really love this even though sometimes I get hurt because I scrub too much and put a lot of pressure on my hand while scrubbing. I love how it  really exfoliates my skin and I really can see the "libag" as what we call in dead skin in Filipino. If you want to have a gentle exfoliation, you can mix the scrub with bath or shower gels before scrubbing. I exfoliate 2 or 3 times a week only. I alternate this with Asian Secrets Lulur body scrub.

     Do you exfoliate during your bath time?What body scrubs do you prefer?Thanks for sharing!

   Good Times!~
