I'm on a journey to an even skin tone. It's been a bumpy, lengthy ride so far but I can't complain "no pain no gain" and would make a detailed post on my new skin regime in the coming days.I promise to share products I use on my journey here so here i come... Today I'm gonna be reviewing a soap called Extract Whitening Herbal soap.

This soap contains two natural extracts known to effectively whiten the skin and fade off stubborn dark spots, Papaya & Calamansi. Well, my willingness to try it was based on numerous positive reviews I read online.


As shown here on the pack, EXTRACT WHITENING HERBAL SOAP is made up of Sodium Salt or Distilled Palm / Palm kernel Fatty Acid, Aqua, Gluconolactone, Potassium Lactate, Salicylic Acid, Fragrance, Sodium Silicate, Glycerin, Niacinamida, PEG / PPG-22 / 23 Dimethicone, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Propylene Glycol, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Exract, Phenoxyethanol, Citrofortunella Microcarpa (Calamansi) Fruit Ectract, BHT, Cl 77891, Cl 47000, Cl 15985

Life San: 

Depending on the usages, this 125g soap can last up to a month. I used it morning and evening and it lasted 3 weeks for me.

Texture & Odour

It's orange in color like every other papaya soap and smells like pawpaw. Its rectangular and have a curvy dent on each sides With the word "EXTRACT" written on it boldly. It really smells sweet like something you can eat.


1. It I s 100% natural, a full prove is when it mistakenly entered my mouth. It tasted exactly like papaya.
2. Smells so good
3. Super affordable. N400 for this bad boy. Price may differ with seller or location.


1. It contains Alpha Hydroxyl Acid (AHA) which increases the skins sensitivity to the sun, thereby paving way for sun burn. With a good sunscreen you'll be fine.
2. It doesn't lighten in 7days like it claims. It didn't for me and every other review I read. It does lighten over time but not 7 days!!!

How I used it :

I bath with it at least twice daily (inconsistently). Use an exfoliating sponge while using just to remove dead skin cells. Leave on skin for 2 - 5 minutes & rinse off. I sometimes apply on face as a mask & leave for some minutes & rinse off. Not to be used for children under 3 years of age.

My Thoughts:

There isn't any trace of harmful chemicals in its ingredients, My one month of using it was superb & has been tested by dermatologists in the Philippines I started noticing changes on my skin on the 3rd week. I wasn't expecting a miracle but it out blew my expectations. It left my skin feeling soft and smooth right after each bath. It's definitely better than most brand I've used. I rate this product 4/5.
