Review: SNOW Skin Whitening Soap

SNOW Skin Whitening Soap Review

Through the years I already jumped from several whitening soaps. I can attest that there are a lot of effective whitening body soaps from local to international brands. Among the usual whitening formulas include: kojic, papaya, placenta and glutathione. The best one for me is kojic though. It is where I usually get the most noticeable change. Some weeks ago I was offered to try something new, a skin whitening soap that is neither kojic nor papaya - SNOW Skin Whitening Soap. Is it a thumbs up? or a thumbs down? Read on to find out!


What is it?
SNOW Skin Whitening Soap contains 7 Plants Extract from the Swiss Alps Mallow Extract:
  • Peppermint Extract
  • Primula Veris Extract
  • Alchemilla Vulgaris Extract
  • Veronica Officinalis Extract
  • Melissa Officinalis Extract
  • Achillea Millefolium Extract
Developed from these Alpine plants they have developed ALPAFLOR GIGAWHITE. A skin lightener that can brighten and even skin tone as well as reduce the color intensity of age spots.
You can find more information about the product inside their leaflet and also on the back of the box.


The ingredients of this soap is really unique. I imagine all the effort they gave to come up with a new blend of whitening soap. 

Packaging
I know that this is a different product but I can't deny that I remember *inserproductnamehere* because of the simple white box and black/red head of a girl logo which is tentenenen~ No one else of course but Snow White. This logo is cute and somehow says that this is a product for teen-age young girls.
I must admit that I opened it just like other ordinary soap boxes... I opened it on the sides! It was too late when I've realized that it should be opened by removing the security seal! It is actually a flip top box. Haha. Yikes. The soap itself is packaged with plastic, and a leaflet with more product information. I also like it that they printed the batch number, manufacturing and expiration date on the box. Very helpful!

Experience:
SNOW Skin Whitening Soap has this faint powdery scent which I like. It is yellowish transparent but as stated with the product info we refer to it as clear colored amber. I noticed that it melts easily, I was able to finish one bar in just a matter of 2 weeks. Maybe because it lathers so well. I enjoy using this soap because of the scent and the lather!
I just use this for the body. I tried it on my face during my first week and unfortunately just like the reaction of my face to other whitening soaps I've tried, I broke out. I had this 3 cystic acnes which took long to dry up. Gosh why is my face so sensitive, I don't use whitening products on my face now...
Going back, as a body soap, at first use I notice its drying. It leaves this squicky dry feeling after wash which I didn't like. However after several usage I got used to it. After a few days skin was micro peeling. Really really mild micro peeling which is next to being unnoticeable.
Weeks after it made my skin soft, glowing and smooth. Other whitening soaps which are too mild or too harsh doesn't even clean well. But this one amazes me, it is not just give the effects I love, I also feel clean! I even noticed that my back acne has dried up, hoorah!

How much and where to buy? 
I got this for free from Vida Nutriscience (thank you so much!) It's P149 per 135 gram soap in Lazada and Mercury Drugstores

What I love?

  • It does not contain harsh formula -  no peeling, no stings!
  • Soft glowing smooth skin after several weeks of usage
  • Cleans skin on top of being effective!
  • Dried my back acne problems. Super kyaa~


What I don't 

  • Face broke out (similar reaction to any other whitening soaps)
  • Melts fast compared to other soaps I've tried which are of the same size
  • I can't find it in Watsons


TIPS:
Let the lather sit on your skin for about 5 minutes in order to maximize the effects of the soap. *wink*
Use lotion every after wash

Will I repurchase? 
Yes! Its perfect as a soap for girls with back acne problems. I am not alone eh?

Overall~
SNOW Skin Whitening Soap gets a thumbs up! Awesome awesome unique formula that works! Hooray for Snow White and 7 dwarfs concept, teehee, another props for that! :)
