No OUCH! Kojic Acid Soap! Belo Kojic Intensive Whitening Extra Moisture Bar Review

Kojic acid soaps are a dime a dozen these days! It seems like almost all brands (and fly-by-night shops) have managed to concoct their own version of the popular whitening kojic acids...So what makes Belo Kojic Intensive Whitening Extra Moisture Bar special?

I'm not much for skin whitening (because I already look like a ghost) but I love the micro peeling effect that kojic acid typically gives me. I've also written a few blog posts featuring some skin whitening and skin lightening products I trust, but one thing that I dislike about kojic acid products is that they can be irritating to sensitive skin and cause skin dryness. Good thing that Belo Essentials found a way to address that!

Belo Kojic Intensive Whitening Extra Moisture Bar

Kojic acid soaps can cause skin irritation or hypersensitivity when used inappropriately because kojic acid is an exfoliant. It makes takes off the top dead layer of the skin thereby exposing 'newer skin'. That's why most people can only tolerate using kojic acid soaps once a day and for a short time in the shower only.

I hope the above answers why kojic acid acid soaps can cause itchiness or slight discomfort.

Kojic acid soaps can also be drying. Dry skin can get quite itchy! Moisture is key to help soothe irritated and dry skin...which is why Belo Essentials (I think) created their kojic acid + tranexamic acid line to include a moisturizing body lotion with SPF and a face cream that also has SPF. 

I did love and enjoy the old Belo Kojic Acid + Tranexamic Acid line, but I think that those of you with sensitive skin like mine will love the newest moisturizing additions to the Belo family!

What is the Belo Kojic Intensive Whitening Extra Moisture Bar?

The Belo Kojic Intensive Whitening Extra Moisture Bar is an intensive whitening bar containing the potent combination whitening and exfoliating combination of kojic acid + tranexamic acid but with a glycerin base. Glycerin is known to deeply moisturize and nourish dull and dry skin.

According from Belo Essentials, the new Belo Kojic Intensive Whitening Extra Moisture Bar:
  • was proven to be 42% more moisturizing than regular kojic acid soaps
  • is hypoallergenic and dermatologist-tested
  • contains glycerin, a moisturizing agent that restores the skin's elasticity and firmness by preventing moisture loss

Each bar is 65 grams, just like the Belo Exfoliating Kojic Acid + Tranexamic Acid Bar soap and their regular kojic acid + tranexamic acid soap. The product retails for P64.75

Love the look of the packaging!

I appreciate that the packaging has almost everything the user needs to know. Good job!

Halal certified and proudly pinoy made!

 all ingredients listed - transparent marketing

and the bar looks gorgeous!

Summary for the Belo Kojic Intensive Whitening Extra Moisture Bar Review

  • moisturizing power: no need for lotion after! yassss
  • cleansing power: good clean, does not feel tight or plasticky afterwards
  • scent: fresh and clean 
  • lather: use a loofah to create lather
  • value for money: Slightly mahal because one bar can just last me 5 days to a week (just 7-10 showers)
  • sensitive skin friendly? Yes! yes! Yes!
  • whitening effect: same as other Belo kojic soaps, results will become noticeable in about a week
  • overall rating: 4.5/5, only because dissolves too fast but that can be because Belo Essentials do not pump their soaps with hardeners.
