Definitely Japan. Definitely Kojie.san

A few years ago, I started using a certain whitening soap which I kept using for over 2 years! It did lighten my skin. However, the lightening effect only became visible after almost a year of continued use. Yes, I feel that it's a very long time to actually see results. Then a couple of months ago, I stumbled on a blog that raved about the Kojie San skin lightening soap. So, I checked out Watsons and saw that it is very affordable. That's when my Kojie.san love affair began.

If you have not heard of Kojic acid, it is a by-product in the fermentation process of malting rice, for use in the manufacturing of sake, the Japanese rice wine. Kojic acid also has antibacterial and antifungal properties. (wikipedia)

When it comes to your skin care, why is it important to use only the original kojic acid soap?

Because, where Skin Lightening is concerned, nothing beats the original kojic acid soap, a multitasking product that fits the buck. Not only does it give a healthy glowing skin in the light of day, it also keeps your pimples away. It simply is the perfect solution to your beauty dilemma.

Kojie.san is the first kojic acid soap to be commercially available in the Philippine market. Yes, they are the first. Many have tried to copy their product but nothing can compare.
Does it work? Yes, Yes, Yes!
Kojie.san has a micro peeling effect, which makes it a potent whitening product. I saw visible lightening results on my skin in as early as 4 weeks.

Is it safe? most definitely Yes! 
It does not contain any harmful chemicals.
It contains antioxidants and 100% all natural ingredients.
I did not feel any stinging on my face when I used it, unlike other whitening soaps available today.

So far, I have nothing else to say but glowing reviews about this soap, because it works, it really works! In addition to that, it's very affordable.

Until next time.

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in NC35

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you all had a good rest during the Holy Week. Anyway, I have mentioned before in my previous posts, that I am now a shade lighter. So, naturally I had to switch my powder. I used to be in the shade C40 for the Mac Studio Fix Powder but now I'm using the shade NC35. Just a heads up, the C range shades has more yellow undertone compared to the NC shades.

Some of you might remember that this product was included in my December Haul which I posted early this year. I feel like that you might be interested to see what NC35 looks like.

Here is what I look like with and without the powder. If you noticed, the Mac Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation has excellent coverage, that's why I rarely find the need to use a concealer.

The shade NC35 is about one or two shades lighter compared to my old Mac Studio Fix Powder in C40, which you can see HERE.

Though this powder is quite expensive at Php 1,800.00 it is still my HG (Holy Grail) powder foundation as it gives excellent coverage, great oil control and the whole compact can last me up to 12 months. I love to apply this using my Charm Luxe Retractable Kabuki brush, I do not use the sponge that comes with the compact.  If you want to know why this became my favorite powder foundation, you can read my full review of the Mac Studio Fix Powder HERE.

If you're interested to try out MAC Powders, I suggest you actually go to your nearest M.A.C counter and find your shade match. 

Until next time.

I have been a member of Sampleroom ever since they opened in 2012. I was very curious about trying out some products from Celeteque since they released different skin care lines. I got the chance to try some products from their Age Care line and Brightening line through Sampleroom, which I ended up loving and still repurchasing up to now.
