One of the seasons that I don’t like is the dry season or so called summer, I’m the type of person who doesn’t like to be under the sun and If I could avoid it I would haha. The good thing about it is that, it makes me sweat easily which means I loose some fats in my body, which is good. I’m seriously doing my best to loose the extra bulge, but that doesn’t mean I will deprive myself of eating foods that I love, but this time in moderation and less chips, lol! And so my quest for a good soap begins, one of my problems is that I hate the amoy pawis smell, It’s not like that I smell bad or something, but let’s face it, when it’s too hot there would be a scent somehow and that’s what I don’t like. I’ve encountered an article years back about MESTIZA herbal soap, written by the women of Cojuanco family, China, Mikey and the mom and someone was asking about a whitening soap. They advised MESTIZA herbal soap for her and read good things about the soap, I also tried it myself.
More details about the soap:

Apply soap on skin and allow to stay for at least awhile before rinsing
In my experience, some of my dark spots in problem areas did lighten and my most favorite effect is that even if I perspire a bit, no smell! I let it stay for at least a minute or 2 then rinse it off. As for the lightening results, I do not rely much, although I also use after bath lightening lotion to maintain a fair complexion and keep moisturized.
Mestiza can be bought at Mercury drug stores and Shopwise Makati. Before they only sell it at Mercury, so good thing they are distributing it also to supermarkets.
Cost: P40.25 (very cheap and effective for me)
My verdict: 4.5/5 kikay points (points go to reducing amoy pawis)
Will I repurchase? YES!
