After using Tokyo Love Soap for a month, I can finally give my feedback on this much raved and loved soap. I discovered this through the internet forum GirlTalk where filipina women discuss on different topics but I go there for the chitchat on the latest beauty and skin care find. (Check my first post on Tokyo Love Soap)
I received this as a gift from an Aunt who came from Japan. She did mention this was a popular “erotica soap”. I was surprised since in our country, this soap is touted for it’s skin care and whitening benefits. With all the hullaballoo regarding the selling of fake tokyo love soaps in the Philippines I trust that mine is original since it was bought from a legitimate store in Japan. I will not expound or discuss what is fake or not. I will only review what I have.
Anyone here who knows Japanese that can translate what’s at the back?
Can Tokyo Love Soap Whiten Skin?
I did not notice any whitening effects. The “instant whitening” that most people claim is probably from the titanium dioxide present in most whitening soaps giving that temporary whitening effect. Try it, try taking a before and after photo using a different whitening soap and you will get the same result.
Where can I buy Tokyo Love Soap?
I got mine directly from Japan. There are a lot of variants coming out but based on the other blog I read there are actually only 1. There was previously 2 (Pure Girls) but this was limited edition. I highly recommend purchasing Japanese Products at Japanichi (japanichi.com) because I know the owner really gets her items directly from Japan so you can ensure it’s authenticity.
Tips on Using Tokyo Love Soap
Use a face towel or loofah! Just do a few rubs or swipes on your favorite bath towel so it can make a lot of suds that can be used all over. It saves you a lot of product and will make your tokyo love soap last a lot longer
So does Tokyo Love Soap work?
Yes. It’s made for the intimate areas and it indeed worked on neutralizing the feminine odor. Using this all over the body, including the face, it did not give any harsh irritation or unpleasant feeling. Maybe I havent used this long enough to see the whitening effects of it.
How much does Tokyo Love Soap cost?
At Japanichi, a bar costs 680php
Will I buy again?
To be honest? Yes I will. It doesnt melt so easily so it lasts quite long. Ive been using it for over a month and there’s still more or less 50% left of soap. I also like how it neutralizes unpleasant odor keeping intimates smelling fresh the whole day.
