Mix & Match at The Old Spaghetti House

by 8:09 PM
Everytime I see the The Old Spaghetti House "TOSH" restaurant, spaghetti and other pastas are the firsts to come in my mind. Little did I know, they also offer dishes like pork, chicken and fish. I rarely eat at TOSH, to be honest, today is my third time and earlier was my first time to try their rice meal and I think they deserve to be visited again.

Mix & Match

How much?
P150.00 only

Visit TOSH at:
SM Manila, Ali Mall, Eastwood Libis or any branch near you.

Facebook: https://m.facebook.com/TheOldSpaghettiHouse/

The rustic and enchanting interior of TOSH, plus the warm smile of their crews will make you feel at home. (Ang so-showbiz nila chos! Hahaha πŸ˜‚).

Their Mix and Match promo allows you to select pasta plus meat of your choice.

Pasta choices:

I ordered Chicken Breast Inasal and Pesto. I've waited for 13 minutes and 14 seconds to be exact. I intentionally set a timer on my phone for the sake of this review haha πŸ˜‚. It was a little bit long for me or perhaps I was just so hungry earlier because I walked from Mendiola to San Sebastian wherein I rode the jeepney going to SM Manila haha.

Their pasta tastes good as always, what I am so surprised about is their Chicken Breast Inasal tastes so damn good too not to mention that it comes with one cup of hot rice. OMG! Who will say no to this? I enjoyed the juicy meat of chicken sprinkled with black pepper and I think they cooked it with white wine. Anyway, I enjoyed my meal and my tummy thanked me so much for that. It was surely an enjoyable and super sulit dining experience at TOSH. 😊

They also have other promos like:

When you're hungry and looking for a place to eat, include TOSH in your list because they offer wide variety of foods that your taste buds will surely enjoy. Say you're a vegetarian, you don't eat pork, you love pork, you eat fish or you're a pasta enthusiast, TOSH surely have something on the table to serve. 😊

Thank you all! 😊 ❤

SaraPinoy Meals at Goldilocks

by 8:25 PM
Me and Kevin went to SM Centerpoint today to buy bed linens and some stuff for our room. (We end up buying clothes because I don't like the design and the fabric of the sheets being sold in SM. We'll try to go to Divisoria tomorrow woooh!) After shopping, our tummies told us that they want to eat and we were so kind because we grant their wishes.

To be honest, it was my first time dining at Goldilocks because I thought their foods are not masarap and I felt guilty judging them. (I super love their cake and polvoron though).

SaraPinoy Meals at Goldilocks

How much? 
P79.00 to P149.00 per meal

Don't forget to like their FB and visit their website:
FB: https://m.facebook.com/GoldilocksPH/
Website: http://www.goldilocks.com.ph/

With their wide variety of your favorite pinoy foods, your tummy will surely be the happiest. I ordered my all time favorite Sinigang Bangus Belly and it cost P90.00 (I was planning to order Daing na Bangus at Ginisang Mongo but I want something with sabaw kanina). Kevin on the other hand ordered Kare-kare with Lumpiang Shanghai and Sago for only (P99.00).

Kevin enjoyed his Kare-kare even if it doesn't have meat. We're not sure if that is their version (meat less haha) he anyway enjoyed the flavorful taste of their Kare-kare.

Look at the Bangus Belly dude!!!!

I also love their Sinigang na Bangus. The taste is very close to my mom's sinigang but of course, my mom's version is still the best but Goldilocks is pwede na masarap din haha honestly, it tastes so good for me and it compliments well with their well cooked rice. Even the sago is so refreshing. We just don't like their Lumpiang Shanghai. I mean it doesn't tastes bad nor good.

I enjoyed my first food trip at Goldilocks and I'll surely come back for more because I really like their food and their budget friendly pricing (perfect for budgetarian haha). I know I am not the only one who loves to dine at Goldilocks because they offer authentic pinoy dining experience expressly. With that being said, feel free to leave your comment on the comment box below. Thank you and God Bless us all! 😊 ❤

Lemniscate Deo Lightening Soap Review

by 7:33 PM
Being handsome can cause many problems. Promise it's not easy guys and it will never be easy. Imagine the hassle everytime I grant someone's request to have a selfie with me and it happens several times everyday. (Wow! Pogi problems! Hahaha joke lamang po ito hano. Masyado pong breezy ang inyong lingkod haha). Pilingerong payat nanaman ako haha. How about you? What's your pogi problem?

Today, I will be featuring a product to help us gain confidence and make us more gwapo sa totoong buhay haha. (I speak a lot of Tagalog today huh well I am practicing because I failed my Tagalog online exam recently huhu why??).

Lemniscate Deo Lightening Soap for Men

Where to buy?
SVR Infinity

How much?

I only used this soap on my body as I am not using anything on my face right now because I am preparing myself for my next big project. (Hint: I have a proposal to be the new ambassador of one of the leading skin clinics here in the Philippines) Wooah! Akalain mo yun oh! Hahaha. πŸ˜‚ Going back to Lemniscate, the packaging is so simple and manly. The product itself is 100g which hmmm just enough for its price. I so love the smell of this soap because it's like men's cologne and it last for hours on my skin. Though it melts easily, it's an indication that I have a cold processed soap. Meaning, the ingredients of this soap is being enjoyed by my skin. You'll experience micro peeling using Lemniscate because it's a lightening soap too so I've noticed my skin peeling very lightly every 3 days and I found it a little drying on skin.

What I like?
• Cold processed
• Fragrance
• Comes from a reliable company
• Simple packaging
• Micro peeling (Effective in skin lightening)

What I don't like?
• A little drying
• A bit expensive
• Not readily available  (though you can order online and it's available in selected stores. I believe that they'll soon offer the soap to drugstores).

This is a great deo soap for men that will surely make you more gwapo because it smells so damn good and it's effective in making our skin lighter. Good thing that SVR Infinity designed a specific soap for men. It simply shows that being vain has no gender because you owe it to yourself. 😊

This is a sponsored review. SVR Infinity sent out their new product for me to try and make a review. Regardless, the views and statement above were based on my personal opinion and experience using the product.

Maybelline BB Cushion Review "Men can wear it too!"

by 6:46 PM

Is it too late now for me to review a BB Cushion? I know bb and cc cushion reviews are very rampant today. Anyway, I know that you still wanna hear the insight of your favorite blogger even if you've already read a review of a certain product from the other blog haha. Besides, the brand that I will be reviewing just recently launched their own version of BB Cushion this year. (Am I correct? I'm not sure tho. Hahaha).

Maybelline BB Cushion Review

It promises 8 benefits:
  1. Radiant skin
  2. Perfect pore-less skin
  3. Intense moisture
  4. High-coverage
  5. Evens skin tone
  6. Zero stickiness
  7. Long lasting coverage
  8. SPF 29 PA +++

How to use?
It comes with a sponge applicator. Just press the sponge into the cushion itself and gently apply it on your face on a patting motion or simply tap tap tap! ^_^

Where to buy?
Maybelline kiosk nationwide.

How much?

I so love the packaging of this product because it's so simple yet classy. The cushion itself was sealed with paper and the applicator has its compartment just like the usual cushion. It doesn't have any smell at all which is a plus for me. As much as possible, I want my bb cream or any other facial chuchu to be fragrance free because I think it's milder and my face told me that such product won't cause him breakouts haha.

It's true that Maybelline BB Cushion will give you radiant skin. I like the semi-dewy natural look it gives on my skin. Perfect pore-less? Not really perfect but at least it was able to make my pores less visible while giving my face just enough moisture. It evened out my skin tone with medium to full coverage. I just don't like the shade 03 Natural because it is so yellow and a little darker than my skin tone. I think I should've grabbed 01 or 02. Look:

In Fairview Quezon city to this product hah, It isn't sticky at all. As in no sticky icky feeling I swear. I've walked around SM Centerpoint and went to Quaipo as well but it stays the same. After 9 hours of wearing, the product is still there and I love its lasting power. Tho I've noticed my oiliness, I still look decent. Just pat your favorite blotting sheet on and you're good to go.

I highly recommend this product if you're looking for an affordable BB Cushion to try. This can dupe your favorite korean bb cushion. Thanks Maybelline New York for making your own version of cushion. I also recommend this cushion to my male readers because it gives a natural or not so obvious finish. (I don't see any problem with the guy wearing bb cream or foundation. Hello! Artists do that everyday hehe so if you're not an artist, shut up kanalang haha chos!).

Sorry I forgot to take pictures yesterday. I just remembered when I was in Quiapo na. Kamusta naman mag selfie ka doon di ba? Yari ang phone mo haha.

I hope you enjoyed this review and if you have questions, suggestions and violent reactions (chos!) Feel free to start a discussion on the comment box below. Thank you and God Bless us all! :)

GMA Bloggers' Style Camp 2016 "Behind the scene and online voting"

by 7:58 PM

Have you ever been bullied? To be honest, I was  a victim of bullying during elementary days. You know that typical child bullying? Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose. Yeah! I've experienced those and I always fought back haha.

In line with bullying, I am so excited to share to you guys this year's GMA Bloggers Style Camp advocacy. "#HeartOverHate or anti cyber bullying." It's not a surprise that both artists and bloggers are experiencing cyber bullying. I had this bully commenter when I was just starting my blog. He keeps on commenting below the belt words and all negativity. Gone were my childhood days where I always fight back. Instead, I just ignored my bully commenter and let love embraced him. He finally stopped and now you're still enjoying great contents from yours truly. 😊

Aside from our advocacy, the bloggers style camp is also aiming to squeeze the most creative team (collaboration of bloggers and artists). Which idea and concept best represent this year's advocacy? You'll be the judge. Later in this article I'll teach you how to vote but before that, let me share to you what happened before during and after our meetings and photo shoots.

Brain storming:
First meeting of bloggers and artists. During this time, we've shared ideas and concepts for this year's theme.
This is probably one of the tough moments because this will make or break our team's standing for this style camp. We're glad because we were able to think a beautiful and meaningful concept.

Photo shoot:
Where we turned our ideas into reality.
This moment is very tiring because it took us whole day to finish the shoot. Hair styling, make up, dressing up and shoot. The scenario goes like that the whole day. I was so busy directing poses for the artists while taking pictures for documentation and thinking of ideas how I can share this to you. 😊

Final Layout:
We can finally see the fruit of our labor and the juice of our creativity.

Our concept is obviously very digital showing that being creative can be simple but meaningful.

If you're anti cyber bullying too, I encourage you to vote for our team. "Team Girls" voting is so easy. No need for registration, all you need to do is click and submit. Yeah that simple, you can vote multiple times and 15% of online  votes will be counted for final judging.

To vote, please visit:

You can also share this to your social media channels and encourage your friends to support this great advocacy. Let love reign. #HeartOverHate

I wanna salute GMA Social Media team (Trina, Ate Tin, Mark, Kuya Elmo and the rest of the team) for bringing up this kind of project. And to the artists (Bea Binene, Louise Delos Reyes, Mikee Quintos and Ashleigh Ortega), I witnessed how creative you guys are and I feel your passion and love for this advocacy. You deserve to be admired. 😊

Thank you and God Bless us all! 😊 ❤

Holika Holika Pig Nose Clear Blackhead 3-Step Kit Review

by 8:10 PM

This was included in my first ever Althea Korea order. Because of my busy schedule and so much reviews to be done, I never had the chance to use this blackhead remover. No, not today, because I allotted 30 minutes of my time to try this product from Korea. 😊

Holika Holika Pig Nose Clear Blackhead 3-Step Kit

Water, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Viscum Album (Mistletoe) Extract, Juniperus Communis Fruit Extract, Arctium Majus Root Extract, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Extract, Caprylyl Glycol, Saponaria Officinalis Root Extract, Hypericum Perforatum Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Propanediol, Illicium Verum (Anise) Fruit Extract, CitrusMedicaLimonum(Lemon)FruitExtract, Chrysanthemum Indicum Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract, RosmarinusOfficinalis (Rosemary)LeafExtract, Aspalathus Linearis Leaf Extract, ThymusVulgaris(Thyme)Flower/LeafExtract, Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Extract, Vaccinium Myrtillus Fruit/Leaf Extract, Saccharum Officinarum (Sugar Cane) Extract,   Acer Saccharum (Sugar Maple) Extract, CitrusAurantiumDulcis(Orange)FruitExtract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Fragrance(Parfum)

Where to buy? 
Althea Korea

How much?

This is a 3-step kit perfect for pore control. The first step opens your pores which allow for removing blackheads easily.  The second step removes blackheads.  The third step is to minimize pores. So yeah, according to the title, it's a 3 step kit so let me show you the step by step to use it. 😊

1. After cleansing, place step-1 on nose for 15-20minutes. Remove it slowly and wipe off any blackhead or impurities from pores.

So I did follow the instruction. I leave it on my nose for 15 minutes. 😊 Sorry I had to cover my mouth on the picture because I am not yet shaving haha.

2. Wet nose with water and place step-2 on nose. After 10-15 minutes and slowly remove it from the edge.

This one's like a tape haha but it feels good. πŸ˜‚

3. After step 1 and 2, place step-3 on nose. Remove it after 10-15 minutes and gently tap it for better absorption.

It's like a face mask with lots of gel in it. It feels sticky but pampering at the same time.

(Parang adik lang sa mga pictures ah haha)

So yeah we're done! After using this 3 Step Kit, my blackheads were lessened. They're not completely gone but at least the Holika Holika Pig Nose Clear Blackhead 3-Step Kit was able to minimize the appearance of my blackheads and my nose feels smoother after using.

Have you tried this product? What do you think? I also want to know your favorite blackhead remover. Please leave a comment below. Thank you and God Bless us all! 😊 ❤

KSA Magic Glutathione Soap Review

by 10:25 PM

I've told you that I'll make a separate review of my current favorite soap. Don't worry because it's  affordable and easy to find. This is the soap that I'm using for more than 1 month now. I just stopped when I tried Golden Fabulouz Kojic Soap for the sake of review. Alright, let's go ahead and start! 😊

KSA Magic Glutathione Soap Review


How much?
P99.00 (3 huge bars)

Where to buy?

My aunt introduced me this product, she told me that it works very well on her skin. I purchased this right after our summer getaway. That's also the time when I started taking Detox White Glutathione. I think they complement well on each other haha. I mean they're a perfect combination. Like me and you my VanityFriends hehe. 😊 ❤

The soap itself is a huge white bar and I am not cutting it into pieces because I am so lazy to do so haha. It smells pretty good like a baby powder which is a big plus for me. The soap melts easily because it's cold processed which means the ingredients are pure and can be easily absorbed by our skin. I first used the Kojic-Gluta variant of the same brand and I also like it. However, the said variant is a little drying so I've tried this Glutathione soap and uhhhh.. I so love KSA Magic Glutathione Soap because it's not that drying. Yes, I am experiencing micro peeling but it's not obvious and it feels that the soap is not harsh on my skin. I've noticed a noticeable glow and whitening using this soap. If I am not mistaken, KSA Magic is owned by Ms. Gladys Reyes. 😊 No wonder why her skin is so flawless and radiant. She also loves putting on calamansi juice on her skin. (Let me do that too haha).

I am still using this soap and will continue to use until I need to try another one. This soap is true to its promise and the ingredients are really working to make our skin lighter. By the way, I am soaking this soap on my skin for 5 minutes every bath ( 2 to 3 times a day). Using it on my body only. So far this soap is so good. It doesn't cause me rashes nor irritations.

Will I recommend it?
Absolutely! I highly recommend this soap to everyone. If you're looking for an affordable but effective whitening soap, this is it! You should try this brand.

I made a video explaining how I love this soap. Feel free to watch here:

Have you tried this soap? I wanna know your thoughts. Leave your comment on the comment box below. Thank you and God Bless us all. 😊 ❤

Golden Fabulouz Kojic Soap Review

by 8:08 PM
I purchased this soap because I felt that the girl printed on the box was looking at me. I don't know but the picture is annoying. Kojie San for me is prettier haha they are in a way cousins aren't they? Anyway, yeah the real reason why I purchased this soap is because the girl printed on the box caught my attention. I know you sometimes see this box being displayed together with other soaps in Watsons.

Golden Fabulouz Kojic Soap

How much?
P119.00 (3 huge bars)

Where to buy?
Japan Japan sagot sa kahirapan haha (Watsons)

It smells pretty much close to VitaPack 8-in-1 whitening soap so I was so impressed. Vitapack Whitening Soap is one of the best smelling soaps that I've tried. The soap itself is kinda huge so I am having a hard time handling it specially during bath time. Look:

I am using KSA Magic Glutathione Soap for more than a month now but I just gave this Golden Fabulouz Soap a try. I've finished two bars of this soap and that's it. I don't like it to be honest. It's not producing enough bubbles plus I feel that the soap contains more fillers than its ingredients. I didn't notice any improvement on my skin. No micro peeling, no tingling effect nothing at all. (Buti pa sa safeguard nag pepeel ako haha). But but but! It's not drying huh. That's I think the edge of this soap. It smells good and not drying. End of the story.

This soap contains many great ingredients like Kojic acid, salicylic acid and Tocopheryl Acetate but I don't feel they're working. By the way, I only used it on my body because you know that I rarely use soap for my face. I'll make a separate review of my current favorite KSA Magic Glutathione Soap soon. 😊

What do you think? Have you seen this soap once in Watsons? Feel free to leave a comment below.

Easy Getaways for A Little Mental Clarity

by 9:23 PM

I really wanna write something today because writing is my therapy, I feel happy and safe whenever I am writing. If you're following me on my social media channels, you'll see that I've posted a picture of me in the hospital. I was diagnosed with GERD or acid reflux. In connection with this, my acid rises whenever I am nervous. Lately, I've been experiencing nervousness when my anxiety attacks and I don't know what to do. I am really confused why I have this nervous problem. The only clear thing in my mind is to get out of the place where my nervous or anxiety attacks.

Surely I need mental clarity to free myself from stress and worrying.

Go shopping

I know it's tiring yeah but who wouldn't be pampered seeing yourself carrying paper bags from your favorite brands? In a way, you don't actually need to spend so much to get pampered. Go ahead and buy your favorite latte or juice drink and walk around the mall. Go window shopping in short. This will surely feed our mind with good thoughts. This is so effective for me. πŸ˜‚

Take a trip to spa

One of my favorite pampering activities. Massage therapy is more than just a stress reliever. It also helps to improve blood circulation and it offers relief from headaches, anxiety, lower back pain and that annoying insomnia.

Watch movies

Truly, laughter is the best medicine. Watching movies can help you get out of your stress zone as it takes you to greater imagination. Romantic comedy is one of my favorites. Go ahead and play your favorite movie for an hour or two and be refreshed.

Hit the beach

Why every soul searches go to beach? Simply because they find peace of mind in such kind of environment. The fresh smell of the sea and its calming sound are telling our minds to calm down and focus.

Stay in your room

This is so effective. Whenever I feel afraid, worried or nervous, my room is my immediate  comfort zone. I feel protected and safe whenever I'm in my room. Feet raised on the wall while doing drafts for my future blogs. I also have this scented oil and candles to help me calm my mind.

Currently, I am planning to enroll myself in a Yoga class. I'll keep you guys updated.

How about you? Where do you find peace and relaxation? Please leave a comment below because I want to know. 😊

Thank you for reading. Follow me on our social media channels for more review updates and giveaways. You can also message me if you have questions so see you there!

Best Whitening Soaps in The Philippines

by 9:26 PM

To start with, I just want to clarify that I am not a soap expert. Should I consider myself as whitening soap enthusiast instead? Seriously, whitening soap is my favorite vanity weapon which is also why I have so many in my cabinet. Different brands, colors, shapes, sizes and made. Truly, I have tried many whitening soaps here in the Philippines so allow me to share to you which brand works for me and which one I love to eat. Yes, I sometimes chew soap when I'm hungry (Ooops! Gullible alert haha!) of course, I'm just kidding. Don't eat your soap otherwise your mouth will produce bubbles and your eyes will turn white all over hahaha.

Feel free to watch my video on how to achieve fairer skin here:

Best Whitening Soaps in The Philippines

Where to buy?
Philippines (Supermarket, Drugstores and Online)

I am receiving lots of questions like what is the best whitening soap for me blah blah blah hope this article will serve as my answer. :) This is really quick so let's imagine that I am answering tito Boy's fast talk. :D

Let's start! 1,2,3 go!

I don't like it to be honest. It's not producing enough bubbles plus I feel that the soap contains more fillers than its ingredients. I didn't notice any improvement on my skin. No micro peeling, no tingling effect nothing at all. (Buti pa sa safeguard nag pepeel ako haha). But but but! It's not drying huh. That's I think the edge of this soap. It smells good and not drying. End of the story.

This soap is so effective but it's drying too. You just need to soak it on your skin for not more than 2 minutes unless your skin is not sensitive and dry. The soap melts easily.

Effective too but it's expensive for a maintenance soap. Love the floral smell and the super micro beads. It lightened my fresh scar on my right knee a bit. Recommended for burgis out there. :D

  • Psalmstre New Placenta with Goat's Milk
One of the most effective in terms of whitening but it gave me rashes all over my body. Not recommended if you have sensitive skin. It burns like hell after a week of using.

After finishing 2 bars of Le Putih Whitening Radish Soap, I've noticed a more glowing skin even if I'm in low light or inside my room or house. I knew it's effective because the insect bites I've got on my left arm disappeared faster.

  • Beauche Kojic Soap

A bit expensive but promising soap. It somehow lightened my skin but it didn't impress me that much. Smells like candy. Hard to find.

  • Dr. Alvin's Kojic Soap

This soap is so effective. I even tried it on my face and it didn't cause me breakout. My face is sensitive so I just tried it on my face for a week. It's not overly drying but will surely ripped off your dead skin cells. I love it but it's a bit expensive and there are fake sellers of this soap so beware. I used it on my body too and it was great. One of my favorites. :)

  • Belo Whitening Soap Pink

Not effective for me but I like the smell. It was just like your favorite family soap.

  • Silka Papaya Soap Orange and Green

Somehow effective but you have to really patronize the product for like 6 months or so for you to see the effect because it contains so much fillers. Smells good though. (My high school soap because my sister was crowned as BB. Silka so we had so much supplies like boxes haha.)

  • Gluta C Intensive Whitening Soap

This soap is really working. It has a very nice smell. It is not very fast in terms of skin lightening but I noticed a more radiant skin after finishing few bars of this soap.

  • Cyleina Black Pearl Soap

The cool soap haha. Promise it has a cooling effect. A bit expensive and I didn't notice any whitening after finishing two bars.

  • Sutla Flawless Papaya Soap

Another favorite. It's so affordable like 3 pcs for P100. I super love the packaging because it looks like a peach mango pie. Super effective in skin lightening and not that drying pa. It's hard to find though. It's not readily available in supermarket but you can purchase online. Smells like candy too and it melts easily.

My first ever soap review. I like it because it's really effective. You'll see micro peeling every after bath.
Smells like perfume and it doesn't melt easily. Not readily available so you have to order it online.

I seriously tried it on my skin and it did harm and caused me rashes around my tummy. Some said it's effective but I won't recommend a laundry soap for our precious skin. Take my review as a guide.

  • Likas Papaya

Used to be so effective during my college days but when I tried it last year, it seems that I got darker. I don't know but my skin looks dull and darker when I used Likas again. I was so sad because it used to be my favorite soap. :(

The smell of this soap is so gentle like a baby soap. It has micro peeling effect and it also lightened my skin. It's hard to find though. Ooops it's also affordable (3 big round soaps for only P100).

  • Golden Fabulouz Kojic Soap

I'm currenly road testing this soap. Will make a separate review soon..

Just a decent good smelling soap. It's not overly drying but will result in skin's micro peeling. My favorite resting soap just like Glutamax. (Resting means when I want to rest my skin from strong whitening kembot haha!)

  • Belo Kojic Acid plus Tranexamic Soap

The soap with a surprise quotes inside the box. It's expensive and it melts easily. I didn't see changes on my skin after finishing two bars because the two bars only last for a week.

All in all, I found this product effective. Just remember two things, first, don't leave it on your skin for more than 3 minutes and second, always use moisturizer or lotion after taking a bath. This will surely deliver great results with the proper usage.

  • Orange Peel & Glutathione Body Bar

Another effective product in terms of whitening. Yes! It's drying too but it doesn't sting. It has an overpowering smell (I remember my friend said that it smells like a taxi perfume haha). One of the fastest in terms of making your skin fairer. This soap is a bit expensive too but readily available in your favorite drugstores and supermarket. It cost P119.00 if I'm not mistaken.

  • Royale L-Gluta Power Soap

Weeh? Power? Haha this is somehow effective but not that much for me. I think it's an ordinary but expensive whitening soap.

  • Royale Kojic Papaya Soap

Another ordinary soap but I like it better than the Gluta Power eklavu soap of Royale. This anyhow caused me micro peeling so I think it's effective in a way but it's expensive for a maintenance soap.

I am so in love with the smell of this soap because it smells like vanilla and I want to taste it haha. It is so effective too without making your skin super dry. It has a micro peeling effect and it makes my skin glowing specially under the sun.

  • Kojie San Dream White

Effective but it caused me rashes too and tiny bumps on my skin. I like the vanilla smell it has and I think it's stronger than the regular Kojie San Soap because it's more drying. The box said it has collagen but I don't care at all because as I've said it's super drying.

  • Kojie San Skin Lightening Soap (Orange)

I'll make a separate long detailed review of this soap. This is really effective in terms of skin lightening but it's too harsh for our skin too. I suggest don't soak it in your skin for more than a minute. This is really drying.

Hayys I recently wrote a review about this soap. Like the usual whitening soap it is so drying. It smells like tamarind candy and it feels harsh on skin. No! I won't tolerate that.

I didn't experience micro peeling using this soap but it makes my skin lighter. It stings a bit but it's tolerable. I like the mild botanical scent. Readily available in all drugstores and groceries nationwide.

I've tried it on my face and it caused me breakouts. I never tried it on my body.

A little drying but I like its effect because it gives me a pinkish white glow every after bath. Not readily available and it's pricey but premium.

I was so disappointed with this soap because it gave me more pimples and rashes on face. It's affordable, super!

I experienced micro peeling using Glupa and the peeling is very decent and not obvious. Micro peeling means whitening because Glupa is removing our old skin cells and revealing the new and whiter layer of our skin without making it dry.

It made my skin a shade lighter after finishing 3 bars. It's so affordable and readily available in all
Watsons nationwide. It's not that harsh too.

So there! Those are the soaps that I've tried and I hope this article helps.
