Palmolive Naturals White with Papaya Soap Review

Ugh… Why is Likas Papaya Soap out of stock in most Mercury branches I’ve been into? Are they still under production? Would they still sell it in the market? I was planning to return to using a longtime favorite of mine and it’s out of stock. Bummer. Hay, let’s make lemonade out of lemons so I thought of trying another whitening soap instead. This time, another affordable one from Palmolive.

They are claiming their Papaya soap can lighten your skin in 7 days with their active ingredient, the Songyi Mushroom Extract.

What is Songyi Mushroom Extract?


  • The Songyi mushroom extract is used in skincare products to promote new cell growth and helps rejuvenate your skin.
  • It is also very mild and causes no irritation to the skin which makes it one amongst the natural and an alternative ingredient in skin-whitening products compared to other harsh ingredients such as hydroquinone.
  • After several uses, it is believed to soften your skin which results into a clearer and brighter skin tone.

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed it too yourselves but it seems the extreme sunlight and temperature is making our skin darker despite the consistent use of whitening products and sun protection. Hope it gets colder in the Philippines soon!


Like most orange colored whitening soaps, it smells like your regular orange-melon car freshener.


Compared to other whitening soaps, palmolive is not drying at all but it does have some slight sting

Whitening Effect

After using this for 2 weeks (Okay, I gave it more chance than it’s promise of 7 days) there was NO visible whitening results. No glow. No fairness. No nothing. Maybe I shouldn’t expect anything from a really cheap bar of soap.

Would I buy again?

Probably not.

    Wala akong mabilhan ng snow caps sa mga mercury drugstore dito sa batangas. Any recommendations?

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva June 8, 2014 at 4:50 am

    effective po ba to kahit sa mga lalaki haha

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva June 8, 2014 at 4:18 pm

    Also tried buying this earlier at the Mercury Drug in Paranaque but they had none. Not because it was out of stock, but because they no longer replenish their stocks of Snow Caps. I had to buy a more expensive kind which was GlutaMax. The only one available is that and GlutaWhite. Hope it works and maybe I can find Snow Caps instead around Makati area. Thoughts on GlutaMax?

    I tried it before and it was really effective ngssearch nga ko why wala n sya sa mercury drug store until i found ur blog ms.kat 🙂 I will buy it again sana sa mismong store nila. Sinu gusto makisabay sakin? txt me 09164355493

    I'm torn to whether purchasing TAT or PH again. My PH supply is running out, and I combi it with KB. Saw significant lightening just in a few weeks, but still 'not-there-yet' white. Read a bunch of reviews that TAT is way better than PH… Maybe I should give Tat a chance for this coming month, because I just want to achieve a fairer skin asap. LOL. Thank you very much for your review. I'm a frequent reader of this blog. 🙂
