Be Your Own IT Girl | Bringing That Confidence Back with a Product That Works

Do you often wonder how come some skin whitening brand hires an endorser that is already fair to begin with?

Early morning Sunday, we were driving down C5 when I saw a billboard of a brand with a celebrity endorsing a whitening product. I exclaimed at my companions that this person don't need one at all to begin with! I find it frustrating and at the same time insulting that they think think people would actually eat this kind of marketing ploy, especially now that consumers are more discerning and critical with their purchase.

Okay, I admit that I often swoon over a product when my favorite actresses endorse it but its getting harder and harder to fool me now. At the end of the day, the product needs to work for me! So if you're here right now in search of something that does, that's exactly what i'm going to give you!

Me in my early pregnancy in 2013 | All tanned and fresh from the beach in 2012
During my pregnancy from 2013-2014, I relied heavily on Kojie San Soap to keep my skin fair all over, especially on lightening my dark spots and pimple marks.
Since I wasn't allowed to use products with strong whitening ingredients, kojic soap is the safest I can use to help with my acne marks! Wash off products like soap is relatively safer to use by pregnant women. I can't believe how I still maintain that same fairness up to this day with continued use!

Now that Summer is almost over, you may be contemplating on bringing your fairer skin out and say buh-bye to your tan and tan lines! No need to look to celebrities and their endorsements. Use what works and you'll be your own IT GIRL. I've done this numerous times using kojic soap and it helped me bounced back to my original skin tone, if not lighter! A great example is my before and after photo above! Even during pregnancy wherein I was undergoing so much changes in my body, I felt beautiful more than ever. Even with hormonal pimples popping in and out of my face, I knew there was always an option for me because Kojie San can easily dry it out!

As a beauty blogger, confidence goes down when i don't feel good with my skin. For while, I found myself insecure to take photos of my face because of my acne-marks. So I decided to do something about it! Now, I am seeing a PDS certified dermatologist as the first step to take care of my skin. I'm glad she understood that I need to keep using products that works for me, which is step 2!

My confidence soon came back and now I find myself more and more comfortable in sharing my #FOTD's again!

My skin will never be perfect. With my PCOS condition, I don't think I've seen the last of these pesky pimples. But I'm glad all hope is not lost with a soap that works!

Now, I've incorporated a new variant of Kojie San, their Face Lightening Cream. I apply a bit of it every night on my dark spots and pimple marks. Once a pimple dries up, I would spot treatment it with this cream to help lighten it. A few days, later, I would apply a very thin layer all over my face to even out my skin tone. So far, it's a great tandem with the Kojie San Skin Lightening Soap.

What's great is that I can use these on my trauma areas that darkened during my pregnancy. My underarm and groin area continues to be stubborn! So far, I am seeing slight improvement with my one month of using it. I have also started using the cream to lighten my feet along with the use of Kojie San Body Lightening Lotion (a great tandem because the lition contains Rosehip Oil which is known to helps repair skin and lighten it in the process). With both having a lightweight formula, it's great to use everyday even in this humid weather.

Kojie San Lightening Cream contains the same high-grade Kojic Acid that it has in their soaps and natural extracts to keep the skin soft and supple as it lightens. It relieves drying and keeps the skin hydrated to provide a healthy rosy glow. A little goes along way so use sparingly. If stinging occurs, skip usage to every other day. So far, I have not experienced stinging using this cream especially on other parts of the body.

There is really no reason not to feel good in our own skin if we rely on tried and tested products. I actually asked a few friends to send me their Kojie San testimonials and I was surprised to receive this comment.

No wonder Kojie San is the No. 1 Whitening Soap in the country, even men use it!

Kojie San Lightening Soap 135g: PhP 68
Kojie San Cleanser + Toner 100ml: PhP 75
Kojie San Lightening Face Cream 30g: PhP 120
Kojie San Lightening Body Lotion 200ml: PhP 262

If you want a 360 degrees approach to skin lightening. I definitely recommend Kojie San skin and body lightening range. They are available at all leading supermarkets and department stores nationwide. I love that they are even available in drugstores and convenience stores.

  1. I personally used Kojie San soap! I started using it when I was in second year college. Now that I'm working, my officemates sometimes ask me if nagpa-gluta pa daw ako! But lol, I just used Kojie San. And the lotion works for me too. My savior after beach trip. :)
