Mestiza Skin Whitening Soap – a review



Summer is over and rainy days are here! I’m sure most of us became toasted and burnt from our beach escapades. The change of season also means changing or altering some beauty routines. Some change their moisturizers, body lotion, lip balms, etc. for a more moisturizing variety because this weather can make our skin dry. For me, it’s the start of making my skin a bit lighter (para lang bumalik sa dati yung kulay ko).  Hence, I bought Mestiza soap (Php 45). I used this even before but wasn’t able to make a review.

Mestiza soap, 120 g for Php 45



Unlike other skin whitening soaps which have papaya as the only whitening ingredient, Mestiza has 4 whitening ingredients: papaya, banana, carrot and calamansi. So I’d like to think that it’s more effective in lightening my skin.

Packaging-wise, the box is a bit big for the actual size of the soap. I hope it’s not a marketing ploy to make consumers think that the soap is big as the size of the box.

No unpleasant/allergic  reactions on my skin even the first time I used this that’s why I bought this again. Skin lightening can be seen from 3-4 weeks of continued use. My MIL and BIL who influenced me on using this soap also said that it cleared out their pimples.

Like most whitening soaps, Mestiza soap also made my skin dry but I just apply lotion afterwards. I’m using this as a body soap during my day and night shower and as my facial soap at night. I use this together with my Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub.

What’s your HG skin whitening soap? How long did you use it to see the results?

  1. I’m a bit wary when it comes to whitening products because of my allergies. But I really need to do something about the tanline on my arms! Haha!

  2. As for me, I always just use Kojic from Katejones since I am using that since I was 18. No breakouts whatsoever and always saves me from skin problems as well. Wow, ang ganda niyan ah.. and cheap pa! Sometimes ang problem ng iba ang dami nila ingredients that it’s not safe to use anymore by too much chemicals eh.

  3. Skeptic about these kinds of product. Does it really work?

  4. Natural products are a lot better than the commercially prepared one so I’m guessing that this product is ok.

  5. I’m not fond of whitening products because I’m really morena and I don’t think I’d get any whiter. Lol! But I do get to try some whitening soap samples and so far, the Fairy White soap from Absynthe did not give me allergies. It wasn’t drying, too. =)

  15. hi gusto ko sanang malaman kung makaramdam ka ng pangangati, pahahapdi at pamumula ng balat sa paggamit ng mestiza soap dapat bang itigil? kasi napansin ko parang same lang sila ng kojie san na matapang, same ng amoy at effect? after mong gamitin eh medyo may hapdi ng konti at kati, tapos dun sa balat na nararamdaman mong mahapdi eh namumula?

    and if i need to stop i’d like to know some best suggestion of best soap that will make me whiter/pinkish, but very affordable ;) thanks

    I find it itchy too after using this soap, but it’s because it made my skin dry. But applying lotion solved my dry skin. If it’s mahapdi, painful, redness occurred, you should stop using the soap right away.

  16. hi. yes oo nakakaramdam nakranas ako ng redness pro d nmn siya ganon kalala. maliit lang xa and sa batok at ilong ko lang siya nararamdaman kc yung ilong ko may white head at black heads. im sure to stop it hnd nmn siya pra magtiis. kc every time i look in the mirror sobrang laki ng pinagbago ng mukha ko, nagkatigyawat ako kc nagkameanstruation ako, pro ngayon pawala na at patuyo na. i noticed my face is blooming, and pagtinitignan ko skin ko sa labas ng pinto, lalo akong pumuti lalo sa binti kitang kita.

  18. I guess whitening products don’t really work for me… tried several products before promising good results to no avail. but stil… this is worth a try. :D

    [Reply]

  19. I haven’t tried this product yet. Likas Papaya lang na try ko at parang walang effect sa’kin kaya naisip ko same lang lahat ng whitening soap.

    Na-immune na rin yata skin ko sa Likas.

  20. I am loyal to Asian Secrets body scrub and soaps and I haven’t tried any other whitening soap aside from it.
