Kojie Carrot Whitening Transparent Soap


If you haven't heard of the use of kojic acid in skin toning and lighting you're in luck, I reviewed one of the popular brand a while ago here (click to view). Today I'm going to review a New addition to the kojie San brand. It's called kojic carrot skin whitening transparent soap. It was recommended to me by the store owner where I buy my creams from. After running through three bars, this is what I have to say:

Kojic carrot soap is a very powerful skin whitening soap made from kojic acid, which is also called Sake or Japanese rice wine. What it does is it aggressively exfoliates the top layer of the skin to reveal a much whiter and smoother skin tone underneath. Exfoliation plays a key role in skin lightening because if the skin is not exfoliated regularly, the dead skin cells will start to build up and no matter what skin lightening product you use on your skin will simply not work. I saw results in 3 days after using it twice, morning and evening and leaving it on my skin for 5 minutes each time.

It comes in an identical park but has the a picture of carrots on the side.  It is enclosed with a transparent wrapper with kojie San logo impressed on it. The first thing I noticed when I opened it was the fragrance. It has this sweet citrusy smell, I was so tempted to lick it. Unwrapping it's enclosing reveals a transparent soap with kojie acid imprinted on it.

Key ingredients includes:

Pure koji acid: which is the main lightening agent

Carrot extract: It’s very, very rich in beta-carotene, which reduces pigment formation by inhibiting tyrosinase receptors on the melanocyte. In plain English – beta carotene blocks the melanin-producing enzyme (tyrosinase) from making melanin. It’s effective enough to lighten even cases of melasma when used topically on the skin.

Vitamin B: Vitamin B12 helps to regulate your skin’s pigment production and location, preventing hyperpigmentation – the darkening of skin in certain parts of your body. Vitamin B3 is used to improve the appearance or severity of some skin conditions, whereas Vitamin B5 can help to minimise acne by helping the body to breakdown oils in the form of triglycerides and cholesterol

Vitamin C: Vitamin C or Ascorbic acid is a potent antioxidant and a key ingredient in forming collagen in our bodies. Because of this, vitamin C is crucial in repairing damage to our skin cell. Vitamin C directly helps whiten skin by inhibiting the production of an enzyme called tyrosinase which lessens production of melanin pigments near the hair follicles.

Honey: Acne: Honey is naturally antibacterial, so it's great for acne treatment and prevention, Aging: Full of antioxidants, it is great for slowing down aging, Complexion boost: It is extremely moisturizing and soothing, so it helps create a glow, Pores: Honey is clarifying because it opens up pores making them easy to unclog

Aside from its skin whitening benefits, kojic carrot soap also does these things:

* Helps remove acne/pimples and acne scars.
* Gets rid of hyperpigmentation, melasma, dark spots and other skin blemishes.
* Exfoliates and deeply cleanses the skin, which help get rid of blackheads, whiteheads and it also unclogs pores. Note that clogged pores can make your the appearance of your pores enlarged.
* Evens skin tone and doesn’t make you look like you “bleached” your skin. Kojic acid carrot soap actually gives you that “natural” lighter skin tone and this is one of its advantages. I know a lot of people (especially women) who use skin whitening products and it looks so obvious because they have a “fake white” on.
* Gets rid of dark spots in the body especially in the underarms, buttocks, knees, elbows and inner thigh area.

The results overtime is comparable to getting a regular chemical peel and microdermabrasion combined without the downtime at a fraction of its cost.

Price: N700

Warning: Don't use it so close to your lady parts, it made my vagina feel stingy when the bubbles creep down there (sorry TMI). Don't say I didn't warn you.
