Seoul White Korea Double White Whitening Soap is a Filipino made soap available in drugstores nationwide. I first saw this product at Watsons and I’m really interested due to its trendy packaging (well Korean products is a hype nowadays). This soap is available in three different sizes in a very affordable price.
What does it contain?
This soap has three main combined ingredients imported from Korea – kojic berry (kojic acid + arbutin bearberry) and white strawberry, which lightens and minimizes the look of dark spots and acne marks and gently exfoliates the skin.
- Kojic Acid is a commonly used skin whitening agent and is proven effective treatment for lightening of skin tone.
- Arbutin Bearberry also known as Alpha Arbutin is the arbutin content being extracted from Bearberry. It is a natural skin brightener and is said to be faster and more effective than kojic acid.
- White Strawberry contains polyphenol and vitamin C, which enhances brightness and transparency. Also it is a good exfoliator and moisturizer.
Direction for Use:
I use this twice daily in the morning and evening. It is suggested to use this with Seoul White Instant White tone-up whitening milky cream for better results. Try to leave this in your body for 5 mins for fast results.
Things to Consider:
When using whitening products make sure to avoid direct exposure to sunlight and heat. Make sure to always bring umbrella ^_^
The very first time I saw this soap in Watsons, I was really hooked up because the packaging is really nice. This is available in three different sizes, and in a relatively cheap prices, PhP39 for one bar, PhP65 for two 60g bars, and PhP125 for three bars.
I got mine though as a Christmas gift from a college friend. I didn’t actually expect for the product to last longer, but each box lasted for a month and that’s only PhP65.
When you open the box it contains two bars of white soaps with a free Instant White tone up whitening milky cream. I like how easy for this soap to open like I don’t need scissors to cut the plastic for a peel off tape is already available.
The manufacturer of this product claims that this soap helps lighten skin, dark spots, and acne marks, while leaving skin soft.
I actually used this soap for almost four months now, what I like about this is that it never made my skin dry. I experience peeling, yes, but not that strong. Instead it kept my skin moisturized which I really really like.
It’s also light for the skin which makes it a good soap for those people who have sensitive skin. I used this to my face and I’m happy that no pimple breakout happened, which is my face usual reaction to new products. What I dislike about this though is the smell. Other than that this soap is perfect.
Correspondingly, since this is light soap I find this not truly effective for my body since I have a high tolerance due to trying different products in the market. But since my face is sensitive, this product was able to make its wonder.
Overall, this product is effective plus its cheap. So if you have a sensitive skin tone I highly recommend this one.
I got five boxes containing two bars for PhP65 each box as a Christmas gift from a friend. You can easily purchase this in any Watsons store nationwide. It’s available in different size in which a bar amounts to PhP39, and three bars for PhP125.
Rooms for improvement:
- Scent – everything is perfect with this product just the scent. It smells like rubber and I’m really not comfortable with it.
Exfoliating – 8/10
Scent – 6/10
Price – 10/10
Packaging – 10/10
Will I purchase it again?
Yes. It’s a good whitening soap and moisturizer at the same time.
