Forever Flawless Body Bleaching Kit Review

As I have previously shared to you, I also won P10,000 worth of GCs from Flawless aside from winning 10 sessions of IV Glutathione from Flawless and Nuffnang in their My Flawless Beauty Transformation Blogging Contest. While I gave some of my GCs to my sisters, I kept some for myself and hoarded Flawless' products. :)

The first item that I got was the Body Bleaching Kit which contains a Skin Whitening Soap, Skin Lightening Lotion with Sunblock, Oatmeal Soap and Skinlite Cream. This one costs 900 pesos and may be availed at any Flawless branch or at their online shop (https://flawless.com.ph/shop). 

Flawless Skin Whitening Soap—a moisturizing soap that lightens spots and discolorations as well as provides antimicrobial and moisture care

Flawless' Skin Whitening Soap is like a regular kojic soap. When used, it can be drying especially if you have dry skin to begin with. If you also have sensitive skin, it might sting a bit. What I like about this one is that it does not melt easily unlike other kojic soaps that I have previously used. A bar actually lasted me a month! :)

Flawless Oatmeal Soap—a gentle exfoliating soap meant to slough off dead skin cells to reveal a brighter, softer and more radiant complexion

I love this soap! ♥ This one has real oats in it and I smell like oatmeal cookies after taking a bath. Although I hate staying in the shower for long, this soap tested my patience cause I have to leave it on my skin for 2 to 5 minutes. My skin did felt softer after using the soap. However, this bar lasted me only two weeks cause I tend to over-scrub my body with it. :p

Flawless Skinlite Cream—prevents sun damage, lightens skin and diminishes discoloration while promoting the growth of healthy tissues

I tried using this one on my underarms and insect bite scars, but I am not patient with putting creams so I was not able to see any changes. However, I love it's powdery smell and how it goes on matte and dry on the skin.

Flawless Skin Lightening Lotion with Sunblock—lightens skin by reducing the formation of melanin. Contains sun screen for added protection from the sun

When I first saw the contents of the bottle, I immediately associated it with Bavarian donut filling. :) Although I don't feel moisturized enough using this one, I love how it smells fresh and powdery. When applied, it goes on white at first then disappears as soon as the skin has absorbed the product. 

These products are to be used as follows:

-Skin Whitening Soap
-Oatmeal Soap
-Skin Lightening Lotion with Sunblock

-Skin Whitening Soap
-Oatmeal Soap
-Skin Lightening Lotion with Sunblock
-Skinlite Cream

Overall, I love the soaps from the Body Bleaching Kit, but feel so-so about the lotion and the cream. I actually hoarded more soaps! :) As for the whitening effect, I cannot really say that the the lightening of my skin is attributed solely to the Body Bleaching Kit  because I am also taking IV Glutathione. However, I got a mild peeling from using the soaps so that could mean that there indeed was a lightening effect. :)

Hope this review helps you in your search for the best whitening products! :)

Blog Makeover!

If you have noticed, I had my blog revamped recently! Nira, a friend of mine, made the layout for me and she made it in such a short span of time. She is actually one of the students I handled at St. Scho Manila's Pep Squad before. She's a figure skater and a blogger, too. Check out her site at http://niraballena.blogspot.com/!

For my blog's layout, I wanted something simple and minimalist and I think she did a wonderful job with the layout! Hope you like my blog's new look!
