BELO Intensive Whitening Bar | Reviews



BELO

Intensive Whitening Bar

Wanting to have that radiant glow? Or get rid of those terrible acne scars? Here’s one of the best solution for that! 

The Belo Authority brings us their most intensive whitening bar yet! What makes it intense is the combination of ingredients. They used Kojic Acid and Tranexamic Acid which is clinically proven to be 64% better than products with Kojic alone.

I have heard a lot of whitening products that used Kojic which is very popular in Japan. But it’s the first time I’ve heard about Tranexamic Acid.

Kojic Acid, an organic compound, is proven to prevent melanin production. It is the most popular whitening agent used in Japan. 
Tranexamic Acid, a peptide, is proven to inhibit inflammation and melanin formation. It is ideal for stubborn dark spots that do not respond to other skin lightening ingredients.

Well, by the looks of it, I think I clearly needed Tranexamic Acid! 

So before I tried it, here are my before photos:

As you can see, I have very visible acne scars all over my face and you can also notice uneven skin tone on my face and arms (due to sun exposure). And I got really great hopes that this product would at least do me a great favor.

BELO Intensive Whitening Bar
Full Size (65g)
Price (Php 59.75)

INSTRUCTIONS:

Discontinue other whitening brands one week prior to use as this may not be compatible with Belo Intensive Whitening Bar. Use twice daily for the face and body. There may be a slight stinging and itchiness as the actives work in exfoliating the skin. If prolonged irritation occurs, discontinue use. Use with Belo Essentials Whitening Lotion especially if you have dry skin.

ACTIVE INGREDIENT:

Salicylic Acid, Lactic Acid, Tranexamic Acid, and Kojic Acid.

OTHER INGREDIENTS:

Coconut Oil, Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Fragrance, Glucono-delta-lactone, Sodium Lactate, Butylated Hydroxytoluene, Tetrasodium EDTA, Tocopheryl Acetate, D&C Orange 4 (CI15510), Lotus Flower Extract.


On my first day of using it, I immediately felt the stinging sensation (effective!). Then I used it all over my body and applied Belo Whitening Lotion afterwards, twice a day (as instructed). I love that the soap has its soft texture almost soft but it does not melt on my soap holder. 

A bar can definitely last for a month and since I tend to divide the soap in 4 parts to maximize it.

Here are my after shots:

Though I may still have acne scars (and additional acne due to crazy hormonal imbalance every month), they are visibly lighter. What I would really love to commend is how even my skin tone looks afterwards. Even my arms appear to be more even in skin tone.

I really think this stuff works!

Lightens my acne scar after 7 days of using.

CONS:
Stinging feel! Though it is part of the result of the “active” ingredient, it scares me for a while. 
It may dry your skin due to the micro-peeling effect so make sure you moisturize every after wash.
