Likas Papaya Whitening Soap Review

Likas Papaya is one of most popular whitening soaps here in the Philippines that's why I was convinced to try this whitening superstar. Just to make things clear, I tried this product few years ago and I wrote my mini review about it in one of my blog posts. Today, I am going to share you my full detailed review about this herbal whitening soap.

Where to buy?


How much?


I love anything that is herbal because it gives me the peace of mind that the product won't harm my health and skin condition. That's also the reason why I decided to purchase this whitening soap. I am really impressed with the ingredients of Likas because it doesn't contain any harsh chemicals. The fragrance of this papaya bar will always remind you that you are using a herbal soap because it smells very organic. No strong scent at all!

One bar of Likas can last up to a month if you are using the product twice a day. Yes, it doesn't melt easily and the product itself is big and heavy. I remembered finishing two bars of this whitening soap and to be honest, I am not so happy with the result. I noticed a more reddish complexion instead of a healthy white—which they are claiming. My skin appeared even darker because of the redness all over my skin. It was a sign that the soap was too strong for my skin to handle. I experienced excessive dryness and itchiness as well. The experience was horrible because I kept on scratching my skin.

I think the product contains pure papaya enzymes making it really effective in exfoliating the skin. However, too much exfoliation can do no good if you have a dry and hypersensitive skin like what I have. Also, this product produces minimal lather making my bath time really boring. It used to be my favorite soap during college days though. :(

On a brighter side, I asked my cousin to try my slightly used (2nd bar) of Likas and it did great on his skin. After few weeks of using the soap, we noticed a whiter complexion and his skin appeared more glowing than before. The good thing was, he didn't experience redness. Though, he told me it was a bit drying on his skin too. Note that my cousin's skin type is oily.

All in all, I will still recommend the Likas Papaya Whitening Soap to you especially if you have oily skin. This product is really easy to find and it contains pure ingredients. However, if you have dry and sensitive skin, please think twice before giving this product a try. You can do a patch test first to see if the product will react to your precious skin. You also need to avoid excessive sun exposure whenever you are using any whitening products.
