Review: Diamond Orange Peel & L-Glutathione Soap

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Holiday is almost over, and tomorrow is the start of school's second semester. Time flies too fast. Darn it that I have been used into waking up past eight already.

Today lovelies lets forget about tomorrows as I will praise a new soap I have discovered a few weeks ago. I got this last Watsons sale and I am very happy that I did.
EXFOLIATING, WHITENING, REFINING...
Representing...Diamond Orange Peel and L-Glutathione soap made by Harmony and Wellness. My first lemming was the Glupa soap but since the feedback has not been so good as this I changed my mind. This orange peel soap is a sister soap of carrot shullamite soap which is also raved in GT.

Below is the snapshot of the soap box.


The Look:

This soap weighs 150g. there is no smaller or bigger size than this. As expected the soap is orange in color.

The scent:
Whenever I use this my mama asks me what I product I am currently using. The scent intrigues her because it smells so good. It smells like fresh oranges and I love it! A good reason to take a bath more than once a day. Kekekeke~

The experience:
Bubbles! The soap is pretty bubbly and I like that is like that because I can massage those to my face and body as instructed in the box. At first use it stings but after days of using it my skin eventually became used to it and the sting sensation was gone. There was micropeeling effect in the 4th day (that was fast!) and I noticed that my skin lightened a bit (not dramatic though but its continuous).

There were 2-3 pimples that came out after using this soap but they say its the purging stage so I ignored them. The soap dried and healed them after 3 days and there is no dark acne scars traces left. I noticed too that I became less oily and acidic since I have used this soap.

I am also one of the girls who has open pores and Im glad that my pores tightens every time I use this and I  hope to get better results after prolong use of this.

What's in it?

What makes this soap effective is in the special contents.
  1. Glutathione
  2. Clair Blanche --combination of 7 active ingredients to delay melanin formation and process of pigmentation.
  3. Orange peel extract
  4. Vitamin C
All of this in just one soap? Yes!
  
The price:
Got this one sale around Php 128 but I think the real price is P148? Correct me if I'm wrong. Gomen ne~ I guess price is reasonable enough because it works and it wont easily melt despite using it twice a day.




As a summary here are the pros and cons:
 
PROS

  • My scars does lighten with every use.
  • Facial pores tightens.
  • I became less acidic and oily.

CONS

  • The purging stage aka adjustment stage of skin to the new product.
  • Skin dries because the ingredients is drying (moisturizer or lotion is the solution!)
  • Stinging sensation at first usage.

Will I repurchase?
Yes! Along with its popular sister Shullamite soap!

CAUTION!
Dont use this soap along with any bleaching creams, soaps or you'll experience chemical reaction and you will have burnt skin. Be extra cautious when you are using acid soaps.

That's my soaperrific post for today, stay tuned for my bon voyage post next time Lovelies!

    1. Hi Joann I do not really recommend using any whitening products for breast feeding mothers but better ask your doctor to make sure.

  3. Hi Shane! Diamond Orange Peel soap results vary, it depends sa skin ng gagamit. I read other reviews and hindi sila nag-peel sa soap na ito. Yung sakin, peeling started after 4 days lang ng usage and continuous micro peeling siya for about 2 weeks. Make sure to use sunblock to protect your skin ha. *wink*

    1. I haven't tried alternating soaps when I used this but as I guess as long as you don't experience any severe dryness it will be fine. I am quite satisfied with Diamond Orange Peel soap alone though.

      Hope that helps! :)

    2. Thank you so much for the response. I want to ask if are there much better soap than this dop. I'm kinda desperate now coz im facing some discrimination and low self esteem Issues. I have lightened though with kojic and black pearl but i want more pa sana. My skin is kinda in between being fair and light brown.. i hope you can help me coz you seem to be like an expert. God bless you madam!!

    3. You are welcome! I'm no way an expert though, I just happen to be obsessed with whitening too. :)
      To answer your question naman, other effective whitening soaps I've tried is Psalmstre Placenta and Kojic balls from Beauche.
      TIP: Never forget to use sunblock when you are going out. Sensitive ang skin and mas madali tayong umitim when using whitening products.
      Along soaps you can also use whitening lotions. Good luck! *wink*
