Initial Thoughts: Belo Kojic + Tranexamic Acid Intensive White

Have you seen this new commercial?
Intriguing right?




Well, long time reader would know how I am not into whitening products!  But ever since I see some uneven spots on my skin, I don't mind using whitening products on specific areas like my knees and elbows.  I recently chanced upon Belo Kojic + Tranexamic Acid Intensive White Line from Sampleroom and tried the soap!  It was an on and off usage so I can't seem to write a proper review not until a fellow Blogger swore on the said product line and gushed on how effective the Belo Intensive White line was on helping her get back to an even skin tone after a bad sunburn!  I then picked up the set that was sent to me for review and used the Intensive Whitening Bar Soap again and was able to find a willing "reviewer" to test the rest of the products.







Belo Kojic + Tranexamic Acid Intensive Whitening Bar
Php59.75
BELO’s most intensive whitening bar yet that boasts of the unique combination of today’s two most powerful whitening actives.
Kojic Acid
An organic compound that effectively inhibits the production of tyrosinase and melanin, giving skin a visibly lighter appearance.
Tranexamic Acid
A peptide proven to inhibit inflammation and melanin formation. It is ideal for stubborn dark spots that do not respond to other skin lightening ingredients.


AMW and Subject's Initial Thoughts ---
  • Inexpensive.
  • Bar smells good.
  • Skin doesn't feel dry.  No flaking at all.
  • No peeling.
  • If used just the bar:  I don't see an immediate whitening effect after 2 weeks of usage.
  • If used together with the Body Cream, you will see more of the brightening and lightening effect.

Belo Kojic + Tranexamic Acid Intensive Whitening
 Body Cream

AMW's Subject says ---
  • Has a light scent.
  • Non-greasy.
  • No peeling or skin flaking.
  • Gets absorbed into the skin in no time.
  • No burning sensation.
  • This product seals the deal in terms of making her knees look more even and the dark spot on her knees less obvious.
  
Belo Kojic + Tranexamic Acid Intensive Whitening 
Face and Neck Cream
Php249.75
A luxurious skin-rejuvenating face and neck cream with the powerful combination of kojic acid and tranexamic acid that intensively whitens skin. SPF30 further protects against harmful UVA and UVB rays.

This is a perfect day cream as it has SPF30.  After testing this on her face and neck for less than 2 weeks, here's what she has to say.


AMW's Subject says ---
  • Comes with a spatula making it more hygienic.
  • Has a light scent.
  • Applies evenly on skin making it a good base for her foundation.
  • My subject has oily skin and so far, she is happy with how this product doesn't feel oily or greasy.
  • So far, she only used this product less than 2 weeks and only once a day (daytime) so she can't see any effect for now.
  • No allergic reactions.
  • No skin peeling or flaking.
Since we don't see any changes on her face and neck, I can only show you the effect on her knees!  She used the combination of soap and body cream concentrating more on the dark areas/spots.

Before and After (Right Knee)
Before photo taken: March 2, 2015
After photo taken: March 13, 2015
The right knee's dark spot is still the same size but it turned from dark brown to medium brown.

Before and After (Left Knee)
The change on her left knee is more obvious as encircled on photo below!  The dark spot reduced in size and same as the right knee, the color changed from dark brown to medium brown.
 

Both photos were taken using SLR camera's same setting and picture taken at the same time of the day.  I apologize in advance that there are still a bit of difference on the color of the before and after photo but I assure you I only used Photoshop to crop the photos and combine them together!  I did not alter any of the dark spots.

After seeing both before and after photos, I am more intrigued to use both the soap and body cream combination on my dark spots as well!  I can now understand why I read and hear raves about this product line!  To see is definitely to believe!

Belo Essentials products is available in all regions nationwide. Try going to SM, Watsons or Mercury near you. Our products are also largely distributed in leading supermarkets, groceries and drugstores in the provinces.
