This is not a very pretty story, but one morning last month, I woke up to 40 bedbug bites all over my body. Oh yes, I counted them. :| Good thing they missed my face! My shoulders down to my calf had random bites all over, and it was not good at all. The bites were reddish, a bit raised, and and they would itch whenever I touched them. I would apply my Milea Pain & Itch Balm every so often, and that time, I just started to use Kojie.san Dream White Anti-Aging Soap. I was scared that the bites would scar and that I'll be left with post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation all over my body, so this soap better work its magic.
I remember testing out the classic bar of Kojie.san Skin Lightening Soap before, but I found it quite drying so I didn't get around repurchasing it. A reader recommended to me Kojie.san Dream White Anti-Aging Soap in the comments section, raving how this one isn't drying, hence I tried it!
What makes this variant of Kojie.san soap unique (and possibly, even better) is that it contains collagen and elastin together with the Kojic acid. It also has a very subtle vanilla fragrance, which I like better than the classic orange scent. This soap has a soft (but not too melty texture). I had to emphasize soft, because when my soap was almost finished, I was able to roll it into a ball form without it breaking. Kojie.san doesn't contain added soap hardeners, so you have to store it in a dry place after using. (I take mine outside the bathroom!) This soap lathers well, but doesn't leave your skin squeaky - just clean. True enough, I didn't get the usual dry and tight feeling that came with the classic variant. Within 2 weeks of using this bar, the would-be post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation from the bedbug bites didn't happen at all on my arms. It's amazing! On my legs, there are minimal marks since I concentrated the soap more on my arms and shoulders. They're almost close to completely fading though! After my scheduled beach trips in the next few months, and if I do feel the need (or want) to bring back my current complexion, I'd repurchase this one.
