It's not because i have the perfect skin already (mind you, i think that's almost impossible! except if i will also be one of the "produkto ng siyensya", which do not appeal to me.) but because it takes some time before i really get to see what is the real effect of the soap that i am using for. It usually takes 2-3 months...with all the before & after photo that i take... before i do a review of it.
The company contacted me after reading my post about the Shulammite Carrot Soap that i posted before. Yes, they are from the same company. I have to say that this is one product that took a while in seeing the results, but i am quite happy with it nonetheless!
Let's get to know the product first...
I'm sure you have already seen this in Watsons when you go over the soap section. I have to say that the packaging doesn't really have an appeal for it looks just like one of the ordinary soaps out there... adding the fact that it's a bit expensive compare to ordinary soaps out there, you most probably have just passed this by.
But let me tell you that you ought to at least give it a moment's thought because this soap packs a wallop! LOL! Give it enough time & you'll be able to see the difference. It doesn't promise instant effect but there will definitely be a difference from before & after.
Feel free to read the description... I guess you know what the benefits of oranges are,right?
I won't go in to details about Glutathione because i think it deserves a separate post all by itself. To make it short it's one heck of an anti-oxidant in combating those free radicals. It's a super anti-oxidant & detoxifier.
If you take Vitamin E in neutralizing those free radicals that destroys the cell, Gluta works even better because it is on the prime spot, which is inside so it destroys free radicals way better than Vit E. It helps keep the cells strong & healthy.
Now don't go asking me about Met & all sorts of -tathione there is available in the market. I'm not an expert. I only read these information on catalogs & researches. hehehe
This is how it looks like...
First thing that i love about this is the scent. It has this yummy orange scent. It's not the artificially sweet scent but a real orange scent! It almost makes me wanna reach out for a glass of pure orange juice because of it smells delicious! Those who love the scent of orange, i'm sure you'll be sniffing this every now & then. Using this is a pleasure too because the scent relaxes you as you continue massaging it on your skin.
I hate products that has that artificially sweet scent (as what i call it) like in facial creams but i do appreciate natural scents & this one has my seal of approval! hahahaha!
As what i said before, you can maximize any soaps by cutting it in small pieces. The good thing about this soap is that it doesn't melt that easily. I have gone through tons of soap bars that melts like ice when you leave it in a wet soap dish ,luckily, this one is not like that. In fact this one last for a long time! I have used it not just on my face but on my body as well.
As what i said, it took a long time for me to finish the whole bar. I think i was able to use it for 2-3 months... cutting it in pieces definitely made it last longer! I took a before & after picture of using it with just one bar.
I'm sure you'll notice the change in the skin condition. Pardon the lighting because i took the Before picture in a better lighting. Anyway, my main concern is to show you the difference of my acne condition. You'll see that the top part of my cheek on the Before picture has a group of annoying zits. In the After picture you'll see that it's gone & it didn't really leave a bad pigmentation/dark spot compare if i'm just going to use an ordinary soap.
I guess you can see the difference between the 2. As far as i know, the whole time i was using this i didn't experience any major break out, if there is it would just be really small, not quite alarming unlike before. I know that there is a big zit on the After picture. I actually took the After picture 3 days after i ran out of it & i used Cyleina Organic Tomato Soap. I told you before that not all organic soaps are a sure thing!
Thanks to Cyleina, i have a new zit after 2-3 months of being nearly zit-free. @_@ *rolls eyes*
Anyway, it's my fault because i got excited after seeing that it's already available in Watsons. Why haven't i learned my lesson that i shouldn't just pick up any stray soaps that i see on the shelves & stick to ones that works for me! LOL!
As for whitening, i'm not really sure since it's summer & i don't wear sunblock as often as i should. Knowing that i tan easily, i won't be able to tell if i did whiten during the time that i was using this. Sorry, ladies, i wasn't able to take notice of it.
I'm not using any skin care the whole time i'm using this... except for an occasional sunblock. I'll be sharing with you my favorite facial sunblock after a couple of days. But then that's it! So whatever difference there is on the before & after picture, it's really just because of this soap. Anywa, i never did like putting anything on my face because it makes my skin feel suffocated!
I also forgot to add about one good thing while using this is that i notice when i had pimples, it usually results in blemishes & dark spots. But not with this, it will just heal the pimple without leaving any dark spots! Amazing! It reminded me of my favorite Neutrogena bar that was phased out.
I'm not sure if this is available in drugstores or groceries but i only see this in Watsons. It's always there! Just pay extra careful once you already see an orange bar, i know it can be quite easy to miss with all of the orange colored packages that you see when you walk on the soap section. But do try to take notice of the L-Gluthatione,ok?
It is sold for Php 145 (i think)... I'm not sure if it's 143 or 149 though, but 1 thing i'm certain is that this is somewhere in that price range. It might be a bit expensive at first but since it last a long time plus it really works then this is definitely well worth the price!
- locally available
- smells wonderful!
- doesn't melt very easily (2-3 months for just a bar?how's that?!haha)

Will i buy it again?
I like this product! I have repurchased it & will most likely be purchasing it again & again! I highly recommend this! I'm glad that the company contacted me to try this because i would never really buy this one for again the packaging doesn't stand out on me. You can't judge the book by its cover,right? This one is definitely true about this product!
If you are looking for a soap that can target those dark spots made by acne or some sunspots than please give this a try. Who knows if this is THE ONE? LOL! I will not really call it as my THE ONE but it did make it on my "products to buy again & again & again" list so this is really good!
Have you tried any glutathione soaps?
Did it work for you?
Hope y'all have a great day,ladies!
