Here in the Philippines, one of the most popular and most effective way of whitening our skin is by using Papaya Soap. Papaya soap is effective in skin whitening because it contains Papain, a natural enzyme that promotes skin renewal and cell turnover.
In this post, I will be using Truderm Papaya Soap. It has papaya extracts and also loaded with tropical fruits extracts that is specially formulated to whiten skin and keep it clear, fair and pimple-free.
Here are the other ingredients of the Truderm Papaya Soap :
Watermelon - Loaded with Vitamin A that assists to reduce the size of pores on the skin and consequently minimize excessive secretion of oil.
Mangosteen - Proved to be naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-microbial. Helps to relieve or completely eliminate acne and skin disorders.
Pineapple - High concentrations of malic and citric acid. These acids in pineapple soap help lift and wash away dead skin cells, revealing brighter skin.
Watch my review and demonstration on the Truderm Papaya Soap here :
- Natural and effective
- Contains fruit extracts that are good for the skin
- Price is very affordable
- Local brand
- Makes skin less oily
- Doesn't make the skin dry
- Improves the complexion of skin
- The scent of the soap is heavenly
- Gives a bit of stinging effect, especially on the first use
- Gives a bit of reddish color, especially on the cheek area
Overall, this is a nice new soap brand to try! What I love most about this brand is that it smells so, so good! Lathering it on your face and body will surely be heavenly, because you know it will eventually whiten your skin and because it smells so good. The price is also very inexpensive compared to other whitening products. What's also good is that it is a Filipino product so every time you buy a bar, you are supporting a local brand. This is safe for everyday use and with regular use, you will notice your skin become cleared, smoother ans whiter!
Here's how my skin looks after using the soap for just more than a week. I can't find the BEFORE photos I took so I hope you watched the video above to see how my skin looked before using the soap.
