Skin White Solutions Superior 10-in-1 Soap - Review and Photos

I always look forward to taking long baths. This is my "me time" wherein I can just relax and pamper myself after a long day at work. Thus, I always try to find products that will make my bath time even more luxurious - without breaking my budget, of course. ;-) 

Let me share with you a staple in my bathroom essentials: Skin White Solutions Superior 10-in-1 Soap. This soap is meant for the face and body, but I prefer using it just on the latter. 

Skin White Solutions Superior 10-in-1 

Here is the description on their packaging:
"Superior ingredients are put together to function as a whitening system that effectively stimulates cells in the dermis to produce more collagen. It reduces melanin production of the skin as a reaction to UV exposure.  Effectively slows down aging process, therefore prevents formation of wrinkles. It gently removes impurities and residual rough skin. Soften and nourish skin, encourages growth of new and healthy skin cells. Rich in antioxidants and it prevents moisture loss and dryness. It consists of excellent properties to enhance whitening effect. The set includes clinically proven ingredients and formula, which will guarantee you fast whitening results."

What was my experience?
I love this soap. First of all, it smells really good. It really helps in whitening (or at least brightening) my skin. I was born with a relatively light skin, but this soap really helps in giving my skin tone that oomph it needs. I like the fact that it's anti-aging, something I consciously try to look for in products since I'm in my late 20s. The level of moisture it leaves on my skin is fairly enough. It's not sticky (which I hate) but not dry as well. The best thing about it is the price. It's only Php120 yet you get 150g worth of product. That's 15 grams more than the average soaps I find from other sellers. Also, the fact that it's locally made and owned makes it even better. 

The downside? It melts rather quickly so slicing it up is highly recommended. I prefer using this in the evenings only. I use citrusy soaps in the morning because those wake up my senses better.

  • Does the job in whitening/brightening my skin
  • Moisturizing without the sticky feeling
  • Smells good
  • Very affordable
  • Locally made/available
  • Expiration date is indicated

  • It melts quickly
  • Might not work for you if you have extremely dry skin


 I will repurchase!

Where To Buy:

Kanebo Sala Hair Cologne - Review and Photos

Who loves smelling fresh all the time? Don't we all? Being a daily commuter, I'm always exposed to pollution and dirt. Our erratic weather here in the Philippines surely doesn't help either. As much as I try to keep myself smelling good always (by taking a bath twice a day, using deodorant and perfume), the aforementioned factors could always leave my hair "amoy araw", like cigarette/smoke and sometimes like "ulam" (food). What is the quick fix for this hair issue? Hair cologne!

Hair cologne is a big hit in Japan. Actually, I think this hair arsenal started there. My sister got me 2 hair colognes from her recent trip to Japan: one from Shiseido and this one from Kanebo. 

Kanebo Sala Hair Cologne

Kanebo Sala Hair Cologne smells like a good mix of floral and slight fruity scents. For me, this is a kikay bag staple especially on date nights after work. The boyfriend is taller than me so I wouldn't want him to sniff on a smelly (and by smelly I mean "amoy araw", cigarette, etc) head of hair. I really can't tell you much about it because the details on the bottle aren't in English. 

What was my experience?
It really helped in getting rid of the bad smell. Some girls might find this a little bulky to tote around, but I personally don't mind. My only issue with this product is that it could reduce the volume of my hair. It's a cologne, so when I use it, I actually wet my hair, so using it sparingly is a must. I also don't know what are the ingredients used to create this product. Hopefully it doesn't have SLS. 

  • Helps in getting rid of the bad smell
  • Smells good
  • Not heavy to tote around
  • Available online but online (ebay and IG) sellers' prices are twice its original price

  • Could leave my hair limp because it wets the hair
  • I don't know the ingredients used
  • Not available in leading supermarkets and dept stores

If you can find a dry shampoo that also gets rid of the bad smell of the hair, I say go for that. You get or keep the volume of your hair while getting rid of the bad smell.


 I might repurchase.

Online, around Php750++

Majolica Majorca Skin Remaker Pore Cover in BO10- Review,Photos,Swatches

I'm all about Japanese makeup. I love how innovative they are with the products they come up with, and how these products really keep their promise. But what I love most about them? They work perfectly for my skin type and color.

I was so happy when Majolica Majorca finally reached our shores. They're not exactly cheap (price-wise), so I was a little apprehensive to try them. Anyway, I've been using this foundation (together with their primer) for months now, and here is my review.

Majolica Majorca Skin Remaker Pore Cover is a powder foundation that works for both skin types, though I think it works better for oily/combination skin. My shade is BO10. Its velvety smooth, finely milled powder blends perfectly on my skin, even more when I use it with their primer. I especially love the glamorous and luxurious packaging. The formula worked for me because it kept my oil at bay, and minimized my pores a little (together with the primer). It didn't irritate my skin nor caused zits. I use the sponge that comes with it because I feel that the coverage it gives is better that way. It didn't have a distinct scent also.

Majolica Majorca Skin Remaker Pore Cover 

  • Keeps my oil at bay
  • Minimizes the appearance of my pores (with the primer)
  • Didn't cause any irritation
  • Locally available

  • Pricey
  • Limited shades (I think they have 3 or 4?)
  • It'll work better when a primer is used underneath


 I might repurchase.

V&M Naturals Jagermeister Pore Suit Soap - Review and Photos

My love for soaps made of natural and healthy ingredients started when I used this soap. I was having really awful breakouts back then, and I felt like my cleansers aren't doing their job, so I went to V&M Naturals in SM North Annex and I asked what can I use aside from tea tree soaps and kojic soaps. I was very specific on what I want: something will thoroughly clean my skin and pores without drying my skin. Tea Tree and Kojic could be a little harsh and sting my skin so I was looking for a more gentle yet effective alternative, and they gave me this: Jagermeister Pore Suit.

V&M Naturals Jagermeister Pore Suit

V&M Naturals Jagermeister Pore Suit soap cleanses and clears pores from deep within. It also claims that it can dramatically reduce the size of our pores and can help in preventing blackheads and whiteheads. 

What was my experience?
It's an excellent facial soap for those with oily/combination skin like me. My skin feels really clean and firm after using, making this my #1 facial soap. It doesn't dry out my skin unlike tea tree and kojic soaps. As for the size of my pores, they're still apparent especially when it's humid. I don't really think that can be improved. It's in my genes and I've accepted them since my teenage years. My doctor even told me apparent pores are fine, as long as they're clear and clean - which is why I can't be without this soap!


  • Cleans and clears my skin and pores thoroughly
  • My skin feels firm and refreshed after every use
  • It doesn't dry out my skin
  • It's made of natural ingredients
  • Locally made
  • Available online and selected locations


  • It's a bit expensive compared to most soaps (Retail price is Php295 but I got it on sale - 5 soaps for Php1000)
  • The label doesn't indicate the expiration date
  • Not available in leading local supermarkets and dept. stores


 I will repurchase! Actually, this is my second bar already. ;)

Where to buy:
V&M Naturals Jagermeister Pore Suit, Php295
Online or at their stalls in SM Megamall or SM North EDSA Annex
