If you’re following me on Instagram (@lush_angel), it’s quite obvious how much I love to travel. Probably, I’ve been bitten by the travel bug since I was a kid. My frequent travels and beach trips resulted to uneven skin tone. Don’t get me wrong, I love getting a tan from time to time. But when it becomes patchy, it’s very unsightly to the point that it affects my self-confidence. This is the main reason why when I was in high school I would spend so much time in the beauty section of drugstores and groceries looking for whitening products.

One of the products I tried back then is Kojie San Skin Lightening Soap. They were relatively new in the market at that time, but they were already very visible in almost all drugstores and groceries, which got me curious.


Kojie San Skin Lightening Soap Product Information

Kojie San contains high grade cosmetic all-natural Kojic Acid that helps prevent melanin production making skin lighter and clearer. Kojiesan Skin Lightening Soap is effective in diminishing dark spots, freckles and acne, stretch marcks, uneven skin tone and othe skin tone disorders.

Kojic Acid was discovered in Japan, it is a byproduct of Koji or Malted Rice used in the production of rice wine. In cosmetics, kojic acid is popularly known for its remarkable whitening effect and antioxidant properties.

Kojie San Skin Lightening Soap Experience

Honestly, I didn’t have high hopes when I first tried Kojie San Skin Lightening Soap considering its price. I know… I know… I should never judge the effectivity of a product based on its price. But I guess you can’t really blame me. It’s not just an ordinary product. We are talking about whitening here. Besides, I was a teen then and I was just starting to open my eyes to the world of beauty.

To my surprise, it did worked on my skin after continued use. It wasn’t an immediate effect, to be honest. It took a couple of months before I really noticed my skin was getting lighter and more even, which my sister also observed. This made her try the soap as well, which yielded a positive result too.

It was also during this time when my face was extra oily. Well, I was at the peak of my puberty and I wasn’t really a beauty enthusiast then. I did not even bother going to a dermatologist. I thought of using Kojie San Skin Lightening Soap on my face and unexpectedly, it worked quite well in controlling my oiliness and acne. It even lightened my acne scars.


One thing I noticed when using the soap is that it can be drying, especially when used on the face. This is why it is very important to moisturize. For optimum result, the brand suggests to use Kojie San Lightening Body Lotion w/ SPF25 after bathing. For the face, they also have Toner and Face Lightening Cream. All these products have Kojic Acid to help in lightening the skin.

You’ve probably heard the statement “love your own skin tone”, but it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do anything about uneven skin tone – especially if it would affect your confidence. You know how you believe you could conquer the world when you feel good about yourself? Remember, when you’re confident inside and out, it radiates in everything you do.


Although I know a number of friends who tried Kojie San Lightening Soap and vowed to be effective in lightening their skin tone as well, results still vary per individual.

Note: As with any whitening products, sun exposure must be avoided! Also, applying a generous amount of sunscreen is needed even if you’re staying indoors.
