Skin Whitening that Works! Kojie San!


After a long time of not blogging, KIKAYSIMARIA is finally alive again! Cheers!! 

In spite of being gone for soooo long, I never stop my quest on finding amazing products that might work for you, guys.

I discovered this product through a close friend of mine who has a gorgeous pinky white skin. According to her, she wasn’t born with naturally fair skin.  
What’s her secret??
It’s Kojie San Kojic Acid soap.
I was so convinced that I went to the nearest supermarket (immediately) on my dorm to check this out. Amazingly, it was so affordable! I couldn’t believe it at first. “That amazing result for this affordable price?,” I asked myself as I raised my eyebrows on this product.  Nevertheless, in spite of my doubts, I went home with a box of kojic soap.

And now, the big question is….
What are my thoughts on the product?

I LOVE IT BIGTIME! So big that I had to write it all CAPS. Hahaha! --Para ma-feel niyo lol.

Kojie San was the first first Kojic Acid soap to be made available commercially in the Philippines.
I use this soap on my face and body (take note, it’s the only soap that I use on my face and body). I lather the soap on my skin for few minutes before washing it off. It gives me stinging sensation-- that’s when you’ll know that the product actually works.

I have been using this for a month now and my friends notice that my skin lightens with daily use of this soap. I have never been soooo satisfied with a whitening soap like this before.

Aside from that, this soap made my skin smoother and less oily. Before, I always get big acne on my cheeks and forehead before my monthly period but to my surprise, this month I never had one.

However, just like any other whitening soap, this made my skin drier. But there’s no dryness that can’t be solved by applying generous amount of moisturizer after washing your face (or lotion on your body). As for me, I have been so addicted to face masks as it moisturizes my skin really well.

Also, just like other kojic soap, this soap runs out easily (as it melts). I suggest you divide it into parts and store it in a drier area to avoid melting. 

Those are the only problems I encountered, so far.

I highly recommend this product to all girls who want to lighten their skin without spending a huge amount of money. It’s very affordable and yet, so effective! I already recommended this to my friends and my sisters and they loved it as well!!

You might hate the stinging sensation at first, but you’ll get used to it. Remember, no pain no gain!

How about you guys? What’s the most effective whitening soap you’ve tried?

  5. why not try natural liquid soaps from Casa de Lorenzo? they make soap from Olive oil, Virgin Coconut Oil and Essential oils. tried one bottle of peppermint liquid castile soap and it got me hooked. only, they sell products online. here's their website: http://www.thecasadelorenzo.com

  7. I have used this product too! I used it after applying a certain brand of petroleum jelly to y face and other parts with dark spots and it worked!

  8. There was a time when i used this and i probably went through 6boxes, im not sure if it worked. It's just slow for me. I stopped using it when the PE assigned to me was swimming, i thought it would damage my skin severely but it didn't. I have a dorm mate who uses this and it totally works. I guess "hiyangan" na lang.

  9. When it comes to skin whitening soap and hiyang factor, you might want to try Be White Gluta Plus Rosehips. At first I'm hesitant to believe on their claims, but I just think that wala naman mawawala sakin. Thankfully, I tried the soap. And viola, been enjoying a whiter skin especially this summer. =) for details, you can visit them here http://www.facebook.com/bewhiteskin

  15. I've been using this soap for almost three years now. Nung una, medyo mahapdi sya sa skin, pero since matagal ko na syang ginagamit, nasanay na ako. Super duper effective sya! Lahat kinaiingitan ang maputi kong skin. haha :)

    I love Kojie-San! :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Effective talaga ang Kojie San soap. Dati kasi ang itim ko talaga.
    Ang dami ko na natry na soap pero no effect. Then my Sis recommend Koji San soap..
    Sa una medyo mahapdi but later on nasanay na din..
    After mga 2 months nakita ko na effective nga.
    Marami din kasi ang nakapansin na ang laki ng ipinuti ko.
    Thanks so much sa sabon na to. Try it!

  24. Ano mas maganda Placenta or KojieSan?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yes this whitening soap is really effective. My younger sister have a lighter skin than me before, pero ngayon mas lighter na ang skin ko sa kanya, I tried many whitening soap before (including Placenta soap) pero Kojie San lang talaga ang mas satisfied ako sa result. For the first timer na gumamit nito, medyo you can feel irritation but kapag tumagal mawawala din yong feel na yon. Try this guys^_^

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow, love na love natin ang soap na to! ako halos mag-1 year n eto lng gngmit ko sa mukha hehe! <3 it

    ReplyDelete
  27. yeah effective nga ang kojie san. Gamit ko 2 ng summer at napansin ko nglighten naman skin ko.. pero para sakin hindi sya applicable sa face kasi mejo mahapdi sya at pag ni leave ng matagal sa face nakakabreak out cya..

  30. Hi, okay talaga ang whitening soap na to. Nirecommend lang to ng friend ko sakin. At first, mahapdi nga sa muka pero may proper way pala ng paggamit nito, sa face daw kailangan hapyaw lang.. Nakakasunog talaga siya ng balat and iwas-iwas din sa araw magiging sensitive talaga yan dahil tinatanggal nia yung dead skin. Sabi ng friend ko gumamit daw ng sunblock fr. Nivea.. Okay sia so far.. Guy nga pala ako and yung friend ko. Hahahaha! (Sorry) lakas makapigi ng kojie.

  31. Kojic acid soap is used as a skin lightening agent for people who may have sun spots, freckles and other forms of pigmentation on their face, hands and neck. There are several types of Kojic acid soap brands available, and the formulation can be used on its own or as part of a skin lightening facial treatment.

  34. I've used this soap before but i stopped 'cause i noticed that my skin got even darker and drier. But now i know that dryness is only normal. pero yung pag-itim ng skin, is it still normal? or baka hindi lang talaga ako hiyang sa kojie-san? :(

    ReplyDelete
  35. Len: yes, drier skin is normal for whitening products. yung pag iitim, i'm not really sure. pero sbi nila sis, pg daw nagkokojic ka dpat hindi k daw mgbilad sa araw.

  36. i swear by this product also =) truly it really is a whitening soap. The downside for me is that it dried my skin so i had to stop for a while. this made my face flush to from time to time especially when its hot so it looks like i have rosy cheeks.

  37. Skin care talk can greatly help the individuals who want to have lighter skin. Whitening products are often used to achieve their desired complexion. I would to try these products to also get fairer and glowing skin. Thanks for sharing!

  38. This soap is effective especially if used with other products. I've been using this for my body only for about 6 months now since my girlfriend made me use it after a trip from the beach. I'm not using it on my face because i'm on acne treatment lately. Just use the soap and scrub daily then use moisturizing sunblock lotion after, I use Vaseline SPF 24 because it's not sticky. I am also avoiding too much sun exposure because of the acne medication. Now my body and arms are lighter than my face that I am looking for self tanner to match my skin tone. Anybody knows where to buy Jergens Natural Glow self tanning lotion?

  41. I also recommend this to you gals. Im 13 yrs old when I started using it, and yes it is SO EFFECTIVE. Most of my friends compliments that I have whiter skin than before. Di na ako negra (lol) I've been already using it for like 5 months, every day and night. I recommend 1 minute on face and 3 minutes on your body. promise! it will really whiten your skin more than you'll expect.

  43. Hi girls thank you for sharing your thoughts on the product! I really like it as well. i have settled for this product, it really works and it's affordable!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Ah! Kojie San! Yes, indeed this soap is reaaally reaaaally effective. Not to be exaggerated but it really is. I started to use it just last year, September (if i'm not mistaken) and from then on my friends kept telling me my skin lightened up. I was really really morena EVER SINCE as in like almost parang our native kababayans, Igorot. Parang halos ganun na talaga ang color ko. Of course pag maliligo ako, I use Kojie San, twice (morning and eve) after that, I use Vaseline lotion SPF24 before I go to school and I always use the umbrella. When I get home, syempre maliligo ulit, then after Kojie San Lightening Lotion naman. Btw!! Whenever I shower, I use it Asian Secrets Lulur body scrub to exfoliate the dead skin cells. Ginagamit ko yun alternately, kunwari Monday ngayon i will use the body scrub, kinabukasan hindi na. Hindi daw kasi healthy ang pagsscrub everyday, it actually makes your skin darker kasi nawawala yung mga natural oils/nutrients na sana naproprovide ng skin natin. Tumigil ako before sa paggamit ng Kojie kasi my cousin gave me a set of Kojic soap and sinabi niya itry ko daw, and another cousin gave me more Kojic soap pero hindi hiyang sakin lahat. So umitim lang din ako ulit and nonsense lang. I am using it again now. And I still believe in this product!! :)

    Been using Kojie San last year until May this year.It really lightens my skin,the only problem is your skin gets dry but its okay coz I then used a moisturizer after taking a bath.But now I switched to Belo Kojic Acid + Tranexamic Soap so far so good,mabango din sya.

  62. tiis ganda effect! I'm trying it now, though I'm using it with bodyshop products, lets see where it goes... but for my feet and toes, i noticed it got lighter... by the way I lived in Doha and plays longboard (so sun exposure and humidity is too much), so it's a bit risky to try this stuff. :) thanks for the blog..

  65. Meron akong nabasa sa ibang reviews ng kojie san ang sabi nila pag umitim daw baka daw dead skin yun na lumalabas? ewan ko din eh haha pero sana makatulong? ano nang nangyari sa face mo? pumuti na ba?

    ReplyDelete
  66. if yung bawat bar ng kojie san na nabili ko walang nakaukit ng "kojic acid" does it mean fake na kojie san nabili ko? hindi rin kasi ako pumuputi at makati at super dry skin ko. Buti nawala after more than a week ang hapdi nya sa akin.

  67. HI GIRLS! SORRY, I WASN'T ABLE TO ANSWER ALL YOUR QUESTIONS. Anyway, this soap IS THE BEST SOAP EVER. IT MADE MY SKIN LIGHTER AND LESS-PRONE TO PIMPLES. I SWEAR, IT'S THE BEST SOAP I HAVE EVER USED. ^_^
