This is my first time to try any Kojic soap.  I have heard of the soap.  I have heard that it is quite popular and that many of these soaps come from Asian countries.
What I have learned is that Kojic soap is something to help whiten skin.  It has been used by many men and women in Japan for many years now to help their skin get rid of sun spots and even out their skin tone.  
Recently in the market, Belo Beauty has rolled out her version of the Kojic trend and added Tranexamic Acid.   So Belo Beauty's Kojic Acid soap has the best of both worlds. [from wiki-]
Kojic has shown to be a very good exfoliant while Tranexamic Acid has been effective on some women to remove that dark skin they develop during pregnancy, the melasma.  Tranexamic acid has shown to provide rapid and sustained lightening in melasma by decreasing melanogenesis in epidermal melanocytes! [Meaning to say in non-medical terms, that the use of Tranexamic Acid on the skin after pregnancy to whiten skin that darkened during pregnancy has been said to have worked on many women]
I just want to take this moment to talk about the packaging.  It is really thoughtful isn't it?  Kojic soaps are known to melt easily so with Belo Beauty's Kojic soaps, you get extra protection by having a plastic wrapper to keep the soap from seeping in to the carton box.  Best of all, it has this plastic flap for us to easily open the plastic wrapper with our hands wet or dry! 
For us non-pregnant women though, we have dark spots left behind by old pimple scars.  We have uneven skin from not being in the sun too long or too little, i.e. the skins around our  neck and chest area and arms.  Some parts of our necks will be darker than our chest.  Worse, we can develop dark spots, can be sun spots or even freckles.  Come in these Kojic soaps to the rescue!
Using Belo Beauty's Kojic+Tranexamic Acid for one week, see the picture below for the dark old pimple scars.
and presto!
Some of the scars are still there you can still see some dark spots but a great deal of the darkness has been dealt with and do not even require concealer anymore.

  • no need to buy online
  • packaging is professional
  • less expensive than the Kojic soaps purchased online or at merchandise stores that sell Japanese products
  • smells really really nice but not too perfumey
  • guys can use this for their old chicken pox scars and would see a lightening effect
  • can be itchy unless skin is well moisturized
  • have to put it near a window and have to stand it on its side so it would not melt too much but most soaps are like that anyway
People will say, but Marge? Aren't you so fair already?  Sure, I am, but like I keep telling people, I still get hormonal break outs and I always prick and squeeze my zits so eventually I have many old pimple scars that can get dark depending on how the pimple heals.  So for evening out skin tone and lightening dark spots someone like myself can find use for a soap like this.

[my apologies for the bad lighting on the before and after pictures, I assure you it is the same spot on the face]

The before and after shots are pretty convincing! Good review! Will pick this up soon. I know how hard it can be for fair-skinned people to have scars and hyper pigmentation. There's a huge contrast between the blemish and the skin making it so obvious. Yaay for affordable and effective products like this one!

there is always a premium in packaging items in a more compact way. unlike tubes and bottles these are more comfortable to bring around in a makeup kit that will fit in an overnight bag. college and high school ladies would also prefer this all in one packaging to have more room in their bags for more gadgets and books ;-)
this sponge in a compact became my favorite since it came out because of it's transportability and it has a mirror to boot ^_^

good luck!

It’s unbelievable how fortunate I feel after finding your website. For the past 6 months, I have been so depressed after losing my husband to another woman. My money situation worsened so much that I thought I’d have to file for bankruptcy. I had a huge amount of debt and I didn’t know what to do. Out of complete and total desperation, I contacted many of those so-called individuals who promised powerful magic, witchcraft or black magic. None of them worked and none were as wonderful, affectionate and warm as Dr Marvel has been. He is definitely different from the others and I felt immediate hope and strength from hearing about the promises he had to offer. He carries an air of purity and divine strength that is as pure as fresh snow on the ground. I requested Kofi’s most powerful spells and I was relieved right away that I had someone to solve my problems for me. His spells worked wonders and I am now back with my husband and my money troubles resolved itself after winning the lottery. Dr Marvel, I have no idea what I would have done without you being there to help me out. Here is his website can also reach him via email call +2348106985072

With best regards, Erin

My name is morgan keri.i want to give thanks to for bringing back my ex husband.No one could have ever made me believe that the letter I’m about to write would actually one day be written. I was the world’s biggest skeptic. I never believed in magic spells or anything like this, but I was told by a reliable source (a very close co-worker) that Trust is a very dedicated, gifted, and talented person,It was one of the best things I have ever done. My love life was in shambles; I had been through two divorces and was on the brink of a third. I just couldn't face another divorce, and I wanted to try harder to make our relationship work, but my husband didn’t seem to care. and he brake up with me again.I was confuse and do not no what to do again,rather them to get in contact with He did a love spell that make my husband come back to me. we are now very much happy with ourself. make him to realise how much we love and need each other.This man is for REAL and for good.he can also help you to fix your broken relationship. I had my husband back! It was like a miracle! He suddenly wanted to go to marriage counselling, and we’re doing very, very well,in our love email( or tel:+234186885231)

I never believed in love spells or magic until I met this spell caster once when i went to see my friend in Indian this year on a business summit. I meant a man who's name is Dr ATILA he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one's gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I'm now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 5 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 3years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided,skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 7 days when i returned to Canada, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn't believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is
