I used to be very conscious of my skin color, especially when I was still in my teenage years. From being the sunflower that I was, following the sun in every direction it goes, I suddenly refrained from undergoing activities which involves exposing myself to the heat and being sunburned. I guess it's because I grew up in a period where fair complexion is appreciated more rather than the Pinay's natural sun-kissed complexion. When I was in high school, I'd try every whitening product available in the market - from orange and green papaya soaps to chemical infused skin whitening soaps. My mom would say that I was too young to try those out but I insisted on using them. They worked for me at some point but I was not able to get that rosy and glowing skin that I have always wanted.
It was only when I was in college that I discovered Kojie.san's original Kojic acid soap. I think it was my sister who introduced it to me. With regular use, I could evidently see amazing changes. In just two short weeks, I was able to notice gradual skin lightening. I remember finishing a bar of another brand of whitening soap and not get the same effect. My skin tone may not be as white or as pale as a geisha's, but I was able to achieve glowing and bright skin that I always wanted! I often get "Blooming ka ngayon" or "Pumuputi ka ata" or "Ang kinis ng skin mo" from people which gives me that kilig feeling inside. :) Of course, my sisters and I still use this product regularly up to now. It's already on our grocery list.
Times may have changed and that tanned complexion we used to dread is now more acceptable in our society. But just because we don't have the same appreciation for fair complexion as we used to should we refrain from using skin whitening products. I think original Kojic acid soaps should never cease to be part of our daily routine! Not only does it help maintain the brightness of our complexion, but it also helps solve numerous skin problems.
I used to have these hideous scars and pimple marks on my skin. On top of that, my pregnancy gave me uneven skin tone which never returned to its original state. Thankfully, Kojie.san was able to lighten my pimple marks and insect bites in a short period of time without undergoing any cosmetic procedure. It even helped lighten my stretch marks! Although they are still there, they became less visible. Through its micro peeling effect, Kojie.san was able to even out skin safely and effectively. Moreover, it cleanses the skin very well. I don't even need to use a separate make up remover. I could say that this one's my all-in-one product! No need to use tons of soaps in the shower or to use several products, you only need one bar to solve all your skin problems.

The best thing about Kojie.san is that it is affordable! Skin care is all about maintenance. For only P50 for a pack of 3 mini bars or P120 for a pack of 3 large bars, you could achieve the same effect as that from a skin peeling with a dermatologist which probably costs 50x than that of Kojie.san. This product is definitely one that a normal employee or student, like me, could afford and maintain.
Still not convinced why Kojie.san should be part of your daily routine? Here are some points to consider:
1. Kojie.san is the first kojic acid soap to be commercially available in the Philippine market
- Nothing beats the original! Several kojic acid soaps and products may have come out in the market, but it is the original - Kojie.san - that everyone trusts.
2. Kojie.san has a micro peeling effect, which makes it a potent whitening product.
- Nope. It is not that drastic peeling which makes you shed skin like a snake. It is more of a gradual peeling that lets you go through your everyday activities without any inconveniences.
3. It does not contain any harmful chemicals.
- As compared to chemical peeling, original Kojic acid soap from Kojie.san is safer. Hence, it does not damage the skin.
4. It contains antioxidants and 100% all natural ingredients.
- Definitely safe to use! 'Nuff said!
|Not your typical mestiza, but I am definitely happy with my brighter, glowing, and even skin tone. Thanks to Kojie.san! :)|
Kojie.san's Kojic acid soap is definitely beyond whitening the skin. It helps solve other skin problems - uneven skin tone, pimple marks, acne, skin protection - which others simply can't with just one bar. It has taken skin care to the next level and has become "the bar that sets the bar". I don't think any other product in the market could be at par with that!
