I was obsessed with getting whiter skin when I was in high school to college so I have tried a lot of whitening soaps. It was only recently, specifically when I gave birth to my son, that I did not want to obsess about it anymore but just target a fair and smooth complexion. Having read that Kojie San offers lightening instead of whitening sold me the idea to try it.
Made from a combination of Kojic acid, which reduces the formation of melanin, and high-grade virgin coconut oil which deeply moisturizes the skin. Kojie San is the first and original kojic acid soap in the Philippines.
But first, what is a Kojic?
From http://blog.skintrium.com/lightening-benefits-of-kojic-acid/, Kojic is an all-natural compound found in fungi sort of like mushrooms. It works as it prevents/stops the production of melanin. The Melanin is the substance that gives our skin pigments, the more of it the darker it gets.
How to use?
Use the soap regularly on your face and body. For me I only used it in my body as I have another product specifically for my face. It is also better to leave it on the skin for a while to let the product work.
I have used Kojie San Lightening Soap for 1 month now and I'll be sharing with you my experience with it. My apologies, my photos are limited due to some technical difficulties (in short, virus infecting my camera).

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IT?
Kojie san soaps have a very simple brand design but what I like about it is that they have boxes that contains two to three soaps in one. I also like that it still has a plastic covering on it.
I super LOVE the scent. It smells like Melon and papaya and everything nice. It also leaves on the skin after use which makes me feel sweet too!;)
The skin feels really soft and smooth.
Some of the dry parts of my body like elbows and heel, actually was moisturized even on the first wash.
WHAT'S NOT SO GREAT?
It melts easily. The thinness of soap made it melt too fast for me.
I'm not really sure that it made my skin lighten. I think with continued use better effects can be produced.
I'm not quite sure if the price is worth the length of its capacity to melt.
MY FINAL VERDICT
So after a month of using this product I'd say I have a love-hate relationship with it. I love that it's all natural and the scent is really lovely but is kinda disappointed by the melting part. Though I'm a bit dissatisfied with it
I would probably purchase another one because of the scent and the moisturizing effect in did on my skin. The softness and smoothness it brought was really amazing even my husband noticed it. On the lightening part though, I'm not really sure it had an effect on me but with continued use it would probably produce better results.
So if you're feeling curios about the scent and the softness, why not give it a try.
