I received a bar of Yamashiro Japan Organic Intensive Whitening Soap a month ago and here’s my personal feedback about the product.
The Yamashiro Japan Organic Deep Intensive Whitening Soap is wrapped in white paper. Japanese characters are written in front and at the back.
I actually hesitated to use this soap because I can’t read/understand Japanese. I always check and read labels, so I freaked out when I couldn’t figure out what’s written on the wrapper. But then my contact assured me that the soap is organic — safe for kids, pregnant women, or even cancer patients.
According to the info that was sent to me, Japan Yamashiro Organic Deep Intensive Whitening Soap is made of the finest and purest of Vitamin C, derived from organic plants and fruits extracts, which penetrates down to the 7th layer of your skin. Its deep-fast-intensive whitening action takes only 3 minutes. It works by boosting collagen to renew your skin.
It is also recommended for people with skin problems such as scars, freckles, pimples, dark spots, and chicken skin.
So here’s what the Yamashiro Organic soap looks like. I expected it to be white, but it’s similar to a regular-sized kojic soap. It has a mild, fruity scent and can be used on both face and body. I leave it on my skin for about 3 minutes.
Here’s what I love:
- That squeaky clean after-feel. *heaven*
- No peeling, but it certainly lifts off my dry skin.
- Unlike kojic soaps, it’s non-drying so my skin feels moisturized even without applying lotion. No tingling/itchy sensation, too!
- My skin got smoother and healthier! I’ve always wanted smoother skin, and this soap really do wonders!
- Improves impurities –> Clearer skin
I’m posting a photo of my leg taken under an indoor light. All throughout summer, red spots are popping everywhere on my limbs. They rarely get itchy, but they grow large enough to get the attention of the hottie checking you out. Hahaha. The redness only lasts for 1-2 days, then the area gets dry and scaly. There are days when they would really all come out, red spots all over my legs. Then there are times na parang lumulubog sila lahat. I don’t know if it’s allergy or skin asthma.
The Yamashiro whitening soap from Japan didn’t exactly cure my skin condition but it helped heal my spots faster. Whenever they would come out, nagiging dry kaagad, leaving them no chance to get bigger. It’s also such a huge relief that the spots leave little to no marks at all. The Yamashiro soap helped lighten those marks. I haven’t consulted with a derma yet because when June came, they surprisingly disappeared at hindi na bumalik. Parang seasonal chorva.
The Yamashiro soap is BFAD approved, but I suggest that if you have ongoing skin problems, consult your dermatologist first before using this product.
For the whitening part, I think it depends on how light/dark your skin is. I’m a stay at home momma so I seldom go outside, and my skin color is quite fair to start with compared to when I was still commuting back and forth for work. Plus, one month is a short period of time to actually notice remarkable whitening results.
My skin tone is mixed morena/mestiza, meaning I easily get tanned (not burned) but I get my normal skin back just as fast.. (compared to my mestiza sister who gets red when exposed to the sun, then the redness fades away at parang walang nangyari). However, when you have dark skin you easily get tanned, then the tan stays on for weeks or even months.
I think that your skin’s whitening capacity depends on your skin tone/complexion. If your skin is dark, you would notice visible whitening effects in a few weeks, but you won’t really turn white (you know what I mean?)…… UNLESS you take glutathione tabs or shots. 🙂
Dark spots, however, can be treated with discipline and proper skin care regimen. See infographic below.
All I can say is, you may only reach a certain level of ‘whiteness’ for your skin, lalo na kung morena ka. Kung hanggang dun lang, dun lang talaga. LOL. What’s important is your skin’s condition. It should be healthy and glowing, regardless of its color.
I LOOOOOOOVE the soap for its smoothening and healing properties. But the undesirable part is.. the price. Price of 1 soap is PhP 899. 2 soaps are priced at PhP 500 each (promo), and 10 soaps will get you 1 free soap. If you have the luxury to try this soap, please do. Might just work on your skin too, y’know. 😉
Thank you Ms. Gina for letting me review this product. It’s definitely one of the best soaps I’ve tried so far. 🙂
Love the skin you’re in ladies! 🙂
