|Silka Papaya Soap Review by pinkylovely: 8:17pm On Sep 25, 2017|
Hey there! Today I will be reviewing this popular papaya soap found in most supermarkets and shopping malls. But before starting my review properly, here's a little background story about me
To start with, I'm fair skinned but have gotten a lot darker over the years. At this point in time, I'm focused on getting an even skintone first before lightening my complexion since I'm left with deep tan lines (my face is 2-3 shades darker than my shoulders). This explains why I wanted to use a skin whitening soap
The very first time I saw silka papaya soap, I was fascinated. Why? There's an inscription on the packaging that says 'whitens as early as 14 days'. 'Wooow! As early as 14 days??!! I was sold in! But did it really whiten after 14 days? We'll find out
Packaging: The soap comes in an orange packaging. (Excuse my no-picture review. Dunno how to post pictures on nairaland).
Not the best packaging ever but still classy and cool
Soap bar: The soap bar is quite identical to the soap packaging. They both come in an orange colour
Fragrance: Uhmm.. can't really explain what it smells like. But it actually smells fruity not like papaya though. Fragrance is mild. I love it!
How it feels: I extremely love how this product feels on my skin. Unlike other akin whitening soaps, this one is not drying at all. It actually makes a good moisturizing soap! And lathers really well. Quite foamy too
Effectiveness: I've been using this product for 2 months and some weeks now. So talking about its lightening effect. I'd say it somewhat lightened the skin And believe me, this product never lightens in as early as 2 weeks. Its a big fat lie! It actually brightens my complexion, not necessarily lightening because I keep comparing my face to my shoulders and there's just a slight difference. let's say it got less than a shade light.
1. Very safe to use
3. Quite cheap
Does not lighten is two weeks as the product implies
It's brightening/lightening effect is so slow
Was not able to even out my complexion
Verdict: This product is not a bad one at all! But in terms of whitening, its not worth it. If you really feel it can whiten in 2 weeks. Sorry to say, you'll be so dissapointed.
Highly recommended for people who wish to maintain their skin colour.
I'm still searching for a skin whitening product that's safe and that'll work. Suggestions are appreciated.
