In my search for whitening products that are affordable yet effective, I have come across BN Whitening Shoppe. BN stands for the owner's name, Bianca Naranjo who is from Davao City. I have read numerous reviews about their products (especially from Female Network where it has its own thread) and most revs was how effective their whitening soap is.
Luckily I need not to order from Davao since they have already opened their branch in Farmer's Plaza Cubao! Even luckier because when I bought my first two soaps, they were on sale. I got 15% discount hence the price was down to Php 153 from the regular price of Php 180 per 220g bar.
True enough, the soap has made my skin whiter. Micro-peeling started on my SECOND day of using the Extra Whitening soap! According to their saleslady, the soap is best partnered with their Extreme Whitening Lotion; however, when I was using the first bar, I did not use that lotion but still, my skin has become lighter!
Now this was how my skin looked like on my third day of using the Extreme Whitening soap. Worry not because in normal vision, the flaking of my skin was not that noticeable but yeah, my skin was a bit dry even if I have applied a generous amount of lotion.
|Can you see my skin flakes? ^-^|
Pardon the photos as I was only using my phone when I took these. I am in no way knowledgeable with the lighting, settings or what have you; but I swear that my skin was indeed fairer!
I only have to skip this soap for two weeks or so and switch to a more moisturizing soap as it really tends to make your skin dry. Also, I wouldn't want to risk my being immune to it's whitening ingredients kase it's really cheap when compared to Tokyo Love Soap or Venus Lab soap.
