Skin Whitening Today
I love how Filipinas have changed their minds when it comes to skin whitening. Before our only concern was to be the fairest of them all, but now it is on its texture and moisture. I have a fair skin, but I am not afraid of the sun. Once in a while, I want to be tanned and have those streaks on my skin. Besides, Filipino skin tone is healthier among others.
When I want my color back to normal, I use products to at least lighten my skin and blend with the rest of my body. Few products I’ve heard to look for are Arbutin, Kojic Acid, Vitamin C, Glutathione, Hydroquinone among others. In the market, you will see lots of them, the result may vary from one skin to the other. It is best to try them and stick to the one that works for you.

From the company who brought us Snow Caps, Acne Care, and My Slim, Snow Skin Whitening products aim to give Filipinas a new formulation when it comes to skin whitening. Disney Princess Snow White came to my head when I first see their products. Their packaging is clean and all the information you need to know is found in the box itself. Genius!

What do I think about the product?
I have used the product for more than a month now. I have to admit not consistent for the lotion and cream because I am not that kind of girl. But for the soap and toner, here is what I think of them.
Snow Skin Whitening Soap | SRP PHP 149.00
- It lasted me two weeks. TIP: Divide into several pieces to use it longer.
- Has enough suds, non-drying, easy to rinse.
- Has a nice skin smell
Snow Pore Minimizing Toner | SRP PHP 149.00
I am head over heels with this toner.
- Removes dead skin cells
- Whitening & Anti Acne
- Skin Conditioning
- Anti Bacterial
- Balances PH Levels
What do I like?
- Mint extract for the cooling sensation
- Tightens the pores
- Visible dirt removal
- squeaky clean feeling
Snow Skin Whitening Cream | SRP PHP 1,499.00
I use this mainly at night simply because I find it thick for my liking. There is an instant brightening effect on the skin and removed my newly healed acne scars in a week. The pump bottle packaging makes it easy to use and store compare to tube type creams in the market.
There was no reaction when combined with other skin care products. It is also on the pricey side because of the ingredient concentration.
Snow Skin Whitening Lotion | SRP PHP 799.00
- Easy pump bottle
- Best paired with Snow Skin Whitening Result
- Apply right after shower and let it dry before heading out (there is a tendency to grease if not dried out properly)
- Smells like Ylang-Ylang
- Easy to spread, two pumps will go a long way
Its whitening effect on me lightened my mosquito bites on my legs. However, I would use this mainly at night because I am not a lotion girl plus the humid weather makes me feel icky during the daytime.
Overall Whitening Effects
As I have mentioned above, skin whitening results may vary from one skin to the other. Some products might cause allergy or does not affect you at all. If you have a morena skin, I tell you to embrace it, our skin is healthier among others. If you have fair skin and wants to smoothen or even out the color, whitening/lightening products are the best for you.
Hence, whitening one’s skin should be your own choice and not because it is dictated by anyone. As long as your happy with the outcome and there are no adverse effects then go for it. At the end of the day, a confident woman is a beautiful woman. So, love the skin you’re in.
