Derma-C by Poten-Cee Vitamin + Collagen Brightening Soap Bar
Bought for: Free with points | SRP: P112/90g
Bought from: Sample Room
I am not really into lightening soaps because I find them too drying to the skin. I only resort to using them whenever my skin turns a tone darker from swimming or doing something outdoor. It's the only way for me to bring back my skin's natural color together with religious use of moisturizers. When I heard about Derma-C by Poten-Cee Vitamin + Collagen Brightening Soap Bar coming to Sample Room, I immediately carted it with my points and use it right away. The fact that it has both Vitamin C and Collagen intrigues me. I know that when taken orally, these two are really effective in bringing out the skin's natural glow. And I am yet to find out if external application would do something too.
Derma-C Brightening Soap Bar contains Natural Vitamin C, Camu Camu Extract, and Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) that naturally whitens and brightens your skin. It is infused with 7 natural oils for an increased moisturizing effect: Sunflower Oil, Jojoba Oil, Sulfated Castor Oil, Avocado Oil, Olive Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Grape Seed Oil. It has Collagen and Vitamin E that nourishes and moisturizes your skin, leaving it smooth and soft. Formulated by Korean skincare experts, Derma-C Brightening Soap is hypoallergenic and has been dermatologically tested for all types of skin.
It comes in a cardboard box with detailed information about the product. Claims, ingredients, usage, manufacturing and expiry dates are printed. Once opened, there's still an eco-friendly pouch that houses the soap itself—very hygienic and safe indeed.
The soap comes in pale yellow color and is rounded in shape. It's also huge and bulky so I'm pretty sure it would lasts for quite long. It has a mild, fresh scent and lathers richly once applied. What I appreciate most is that unlike other soaps, it does not loses it's lather even though it's sunken in size and most of it are melted/used.
Every time I took it out to bath, I feel like my skin is well-cleansed but isn't dry and taut. Other brightening soaps strip off the skin's natural moisture while trying to exfoliate it. I didn't experience anything alike with Derma-C by Poten-Cee Vitamin + Collagen Brightening Soap Bar. Thanks to the 7 natural moisturizing oils it's made of—they seem to work! My skin is softer and smoother after washing and indeed, with religious use, I notice my skin restoring a brighter and more supple complexion.
If you are looking for a soap that does not dry out the skin and is great for skin maintenance, this could be the answer to your woes. It will not lighten your skin significantly but I noticed my chickenpox scars (on my upper back and front torso) decreasing pigmentation while using these. I think it's working best with the use of the Poten-cee Vitamin C + Collagen Supplement that has great dose of nutrients beneficial to the skin too.
A bar may sound crazy at P112 (when other lightening soaps are already on BOGO deal for that price), but it definitely will last you a long time. I had this for like a month before I finally ran out.
