Review: Etta's Compact Skin Whitening Powder

This post is long overdue. But anyway, since whitening is still all the rage now and I still can't find a review about Etta's then I'll publish this. :P

So what is Etta's?
Etta's Compact Skin Whitening Powder (also called Etta's bleaching powder) is:
A pre-mixed compact of skin beauty aids in a single white dry powder form. The effective skin whitening for dark skin or areas of dark skin - sunburn, thus preventing the formation of freckles, birthmarks, pimples and blackheads, prickly heat that gives baby skin results. No pre-washing needed. Economical and easy to apply.



I have high hopes with Etta's Bleaching Powder because of the raves I see in girltalk. How good can this powder really be? I gave in and ordered my Etta's online. It was not easily available in stores before. I also bought Etta's Mixing Solution for the mix sold separately. It is mentioned that we can use milk in place of the mixing solution though. Etta's Mixing Solution is 10 V Hydrogen Peroxide which can also used to lighten/bleach hair.

The product:

The bleaching powder is a finely milled plain white powder. It has no scent and the texture is the same with flour. One box contains 112 grams of product divided to 2 separate bags.

How to prepare?

  1. Put (1 tablespoon for face/ 4 tablespoon for body) Etta's powder in a bowl.
  2. Mix powder with the Hydrogen Peroxide until ice cream appearance is produced.
  3. Apply on desired area. Wait until it dries and wash with plenty of water.
  4. Apply moisturizer/ lotion after.

Recommended Schedule of Application for best results:
  • Once for 7 consecutive days
  • Twice for 1 week
  • Once for 1 week
  • Twice for 1 month
  • Then once a month regularly

*This regimen works the same as White Henna and Soap Chips which is also quite popular way to body bleach.*

Results?
Upon application you will feel your skin tighten, somehow itchy but do not fret as this is normal. I used Etta's Bleaching Powder hoping that it will even out my skin tone. However I didn't noticed any changes. I followed the schedule as hard as I can but I still didn't seen effects.

PROS
  • Cheap whitening regimen. It's only P180/ box and P30 for the Mixing Solution both available in Mercury Drug stores nationwide.

CONS
  • Messy routine and not for busy people. You can't walk around when you use this product as the powder will fly around and you'll leave white mess on your floor.
  • No ingredient list for the bleaching powder.

Final Verdict:
Despite the fact that I didn't noticed any effect, I still think that this product is still promising. Hydrogen Peroxide alone is already a wonder product. I am quite fair so I assume that bleaching powder is not enough to even out my skin tone. I will ask my sister to try this, who knows? It might work on her. After all, a lot of people already swears by this product. The effect of Etta's Bleaching powder varies so you need to try it out yourself to see if it works for you. *wink*

I'm curious to know what whitening regimen do you have now sisses?

    1. Hello Anon! Aww~ Too bad it didn't worked for you too. Another bleaching product I guess you were referring to is white henna and soap chips. I have seen this product being sold in Hortaleza.
      Personally, when I had an uneven skintone before I have used green peeling oil and bleaching cream/lotion to even it out. It takes days,not a totally safe and usual way to whiten but it worked for me.

      Hope that helps!

    1. I bought mine from Shenelles online shop in sulit. I haven't checked pa if they are still selling those though. This product has became more accessible na since it is already available nationwide in Mercury Drug stores and Hortaleza outlets.

      Hope that helps! :)

  4. Hi Chien! It seems that the product u bought was fake(?). Since 2011, the packaging of Ettas has changed, the ring logo is not colored gold anymore but blue. Magic potions sells authentic ones. Have a nice day! ;-)

    1. No actually this is a really old post before it was deleted and I had to repost it. This is the old Ettas packaging talaga so it is legit. Thank you for your concern Anon! and btw product is accessible na sa Mercury drug outlets so less hassle na sa online shopping.

      Hope that helps! :)

  7. Hi everyone! I would like to share my experience with Ettas. I've been a user of this for almost 4years na and I can 101% say na tested and proven siya para sa akin. Sipag at tiyaga lang talaga ang kailangan. Nag e-ettas ako 24/7, and YES! pumuti talaga ako. I used to apply it on my arms, elbows, knees, legs, and some darker parts of my skin. Tama yung procedure ng pag gamit sa nakalagay above. But instead of using a 10 VOLUME Hydrogen Peroxide Solution ay 20 VOLUME yung ginagamit ko to level up the intensity and yung effect. And still, may epekto talaga. First to notice talaga sasabay sa pagpuputi ang hairs ng balat, well thats normal kase nga sa taas ng volume ng solution. What I do is that, shinishave ko nlg sila para sabihing di ako nag eettas at natural yung pagkaputi ko. Yung discouraging lang e medyo mabaho lang siya at makate pero tolerable naman. Hope this would also helps! God Bless everyone.

  14. Hi Chien, nice blog! just came across this today. Incidentally, i am using this Advance Bleaching Compound before I release it. Dati ko pa nakita tobg Etta's sa HBC pero i always have second thoughts dahil nga may hydrogen peroxide solution. Ung gamit ko now Soap and Powder sya, wala nang solution. Sinasabay ko sa pagbababad ng laundry (undies na ayaw ko ipalaba sa iba��) Hiyangan din..for me mabilis effect especially sa face. For most almost instant, especiallu sa tuhod nila. And tama si Chien na kailangan talaga magmoisturize after. Hindi ako sensitive kaya hindi naman ako nangangati after. Yung results nakikita ko after days of using. Should anyone be interested, visit my Instagram profile: thebeauthashop_pasaycity. Naging distributor na ko kasi tested ko na ung soaps and other products. You can tell me you got the info from here para mabgyan kayo discount. *wink

  15. Hi Chien! Nice blog! Just stumbled upon it today. Incidentally, I'm trying Advance Whitening Bleaching Compound Soap and Powder kasi gusto ko pumantay yung sunburn ko from Cagbalete just recently (read: naachieve ko na color ko thru Gluta IV kaso...) I have been wanting to try Etta's for the longest time kaso nga naturn off ako dahil kelangan pa ng solution. What I use now is easy to use kasi soap (babad for 2-3mins) and powder (babad for 15-30mins) sya, sinasabay ko pag nilo-laundry undies (dahil ayaw ko ipalaba sa laundry shop kasabay ng ibang damit��)

    Nakakadry sya sa una so kelangan talaga imoisturise but I see the results after! Hiyangan din, sa iba mabilis, instant effect kita agad sa tuhod, sa kin pinamabilis makita ung effect sa face.

    I now became a distributor (dahil tested ko na ung products, especially the soaps) so in case you got curious, I'm in Instagram, thebeauthashop_pasaycity. Mention that you saw this post so I can give discounts (wink).

  17. HI Everyone,

    effective ang etta's way back in late 90's pa yan product na yan ..iyan ung ginagamit ng tita ko before,,
    effective talaga siya kaso need mo lang talaga ng tiyaga sa pag apply ng etta's & time consuming talaga siya kasi need mo pang hintayin na magdry sa balat mo tska mo siya babanlawan. pero to tell you honestly effective xa, sa divisoria un mga Chinese drugstore nagbebenta sila 130/box.

  28. Drink at least 3 liters of water every day and you will get extraordinary results on your skin complexion and texture. Water is an all rounder remedy when it comes to skin. Not whole month or a year, just try this for 10 days.
