SoJoMi Gluta Kojic D’Arbutin Whitening Face Cream is a product by SCT. It aims to whiten your face fast without the peeling effect and it also provide protection from sunlight.
What does it contain?
This face cream contains Alpha Arbutin, Glutathione, and Kojic Acid as its main ingredients. These three main ingredients are known for its effectiveness in terms of whitening.

- Glutathione is a power oxidant which effectively whitens the skin, removes excess skin pigments, refines stretch marks, helps make skin glow, repairs sun-damaged skin, and make skin smoother and clearer.
- Kojic Acid is an all-natural compound derived from mushroom. It helps remove dead skin cells, melasma, and treats skin hyperpigmentation.
- Other ingredients: Cetyl, Stearyl, Glyceryl Monostearate, Fragrance Essential Oil, Distilled Water, and Phenoxyethanol.
Direction for Use:
I usually apply this cream only before bedtime after I had washed my face and apply a toner, I apply this using my fingertips then get a few drops of water in order to spread the product all over my face. When I have to go out I also use this product for protection against sunlight and to avoid having dirt entering my skin.
Things to Consider:
Since this cream is made of pure extracts, heavy application shall be avoided for it will not be absorbed by the skin and it will make your face sweat or sometimes oily. Also, avoid too much exposure to sun. Initial results is noticeable after 5-7 days but it usually takes at least 8 weeks before you see the best results.
Well, I’m not really into face cream. I had used moisturizer before but it always made me feel uncomfortable so when I tried this product, I didn’t feel any hype. I just wanted to try it for a month to see whether it is effective or not and I was not into thinking of including face cream on my skin care routine.
Now here comes summer, my skin easily darkens every time I go for a swim or hike. And for those hours of fun, I always lost my months of efforts to even out my skin tone.
This summer I was usually exposed to direct sunlight, most of the time because I forgot to bring my umbrella or I was too lazy to get it from my bag. This practice led me to having darker face in comparison to my neck.
I thought it would took me months before I finally be able to lighten my face since I don’t use whitening soap on my face in order avoid breakouts because my face is quite sensitive. And also, I’m not expecting so much from the face cream.
But thankfully, this product made its wonders on my skin. It brightened my face for as fast as two weeks without any visible peeling and whatsoever. It’s not harsh and it serves as both effective whitening and moisturizing cream.
Another good thing about it is really cheap for it lasts for more than 4 months. I began using mine around last week of January, up to now, I still haven’t done using the first package.
The packaging is really nice as well, but I think they could make some improvement with the box -changing its design or color shall be considered. But in terms with the quality and effectiveness of the product, I got nothing to say.
SCT sent me this product but I have checked the price in Lazada and in Shopee. Its original price is PhP499 but it’s on sale in shopee for only PhP149 and in Lazada for only PhP199.
Rooms for Improvement:
I find this product really effective and cheap. I think the box is the only thing that should be improved.
Would I recommend this?
Yes! Yes! Yes! This is perfect for those who want to lighten or brighten their face. Works as a good moisturizer as well. Just use this with a few drops of water to avoid having only shiny face.
