I've been no stranger to skincare. In fact, my skin story may be a bit of a special case. However, I've always been a believer of trying things out and striving for self-improvement, provided that you do not place yourself or those around you in harm's way. So if you're a morena wanting to achieve fairer skin, or someone who previously had lighter skin but got tanned through daily sun exposure, you have every right to bring your skin to light.
There's no shame in that!
Through the years, I found myself more focused in figuring out how to treat my problematic skin, so skin whitening has not been my biggest skincare priority. But now that my skin issues have been more manageable, it's high time that I delve into skin lightening territory.
One of the most famous skin whitening brands in the country is Kojie San, a homegrown brand of Kojic Acid soap from Beauty Elements Ventures, Inc. (BEVI), which flagship product -- Kojie San Lightening Soap, first entered the market in 2007. Although I first thought the brand came from Japan (It's not, it's completely homegrown!), I've already known of its effectiveness from friends and family who had nothing but praises for it.

Whiten. The most famous, and the flagship product of the brand -- the lightening soap. Made with high-grade Kojic Acid, it prevents melanin production for lighter, clearer skin as it also effectively diminishes dark spots, freckles, acne, plus stretch marks and unevenness.

Rejuvenate. The brand also has its own cleanser and toner equipped with Ginseng Extract and Rosehip Oil to revive tired skin. Although it doesn't contain Kojic Acid, this complements the lightening soap really well and rids the skin of excessive oil while repairing damage.

Brighten. While the soap alone is effective, using the whole line from the brand makes the skin lightening action easier. With a combination of natural extracts plus high-grade Kojic Acid, this lightening face cream brightens as it nourishes the skin and restores skin suppleness for a healthy, rosy look that's always in.

Lighten. If there's a cream for the face, there's also a lotion counterpart for the body. Made from advanced formula of Kojic Acid plus Rosehip Oil, this body lotion whitens the skin as it heals. It's also made for faster absorption to lighten skin in less time, and contains Collagen + Vitamin E that increases youthfulness and overall skin health.
I'm currently on my 2nd week of using this line of Kojie San products, and I'm excited to share the results soon. So far, it's very promising as the line doesn't only help with whitening, but seems to have helped dry out my blemishes too. And if you're in for bringing your skin to light as well, why not join me on this skin lightening journey? Let's get a face so fair, a back worth baring and legs so alluring, together!
Kojie San products are available at leading supermarkets, drug stores, and sari-sari stores nationwide.
