Spreading Luminosity in Skincare.

Thursday, 14 June 2012

Hi All,  a friend came to me yesterday all excited about purchasing Likas soap at rock-bottom prices. My first reaction was a wide open mouth, it was pretty cheap. Unfortunately, after checking out the package at first glance, I could see it was a fake, which by the way is not difficult to discern;

1. Picture 1 is the Original Likas Papaya Whitening Soap;
2. Picture 2 is the Fake Likas soap;


I had searched on how to tell the original Likas soap and the best way is the hologram, the inscription "Awarded SuperBrand" is written there in the front of the pack.
So please check really well before purchasing. Even if its a little money, it doesn't feel good to know one was been scammed.
Take care!

  3. It foams just right and it doesn't melt fast so it will really last a while. It never dried my skin too so I guess it really moisturizes the skin. And it's a plus that it is also Hypo-allergenic!Kojic Acid Soap

  7. What you said is wrong. The original soap packing actually doesn't have the inscription "Awarded Super Brand" logo. Each Likas Papaya soap is orange-schemed and carries the Mystica Logo throughout its packaging. The Mystica Logo is reflectorized which emanates rainbow rays and shines in the light. Refer manufacturer site for further details. http://trinidadcosmeticslab.yocal.ph/cosmetics/likas_papaya_skin_whitening_herbal_soap++quezon_city+philippines-7592.html

  8. OMG I bought the 2nd one from Seafood City and it smelled sort of like mothballs! Then, today I just had the urge to go to Marina grocery store and they had the 1st one AND the 2nd one! I decided to try the 1st one since I already had the 2nd one. I haven't used the Marina one yet, but I inspected the soap and found that it is a bit darker orange color and it actually smells citrussy!! Thank you SO MUCH for this post to clear things up for me! ^^

  12. I migrated here in Maui Hawaii and I love it here but a couple of months ago I had experienced break outs. It's not because of the weather because I'm a Filipina and pretty much same weather in the Philippines. So trying to manage my acne I researched a lot on how. I preferred medicated cleansers such as Proactive, Clearasil, Neutrogena ,St. Ives---you name it. But it gets my face super sensitive to the strength of Salicylic Acid that it contain. My skin is super sensitive. One time I go to shop in TJ's store a local Asian store and saw Likas Papaya soap there, and I remembered it always works for me. I don't need whitening soap because I'm fairly justhe looking for soap to manage and treat my acne somehow. I purchased 3 boxes and to my disappointment it is fake and it just get my acne worse. Then one of my friends told me she knows where to purchase the authentic one, I bought mine at Paradise Restaurant and Supermarket. It is the genuine one. I took pictures on both to identify the fake from the genuine and I'm glad I know where to go now.
    And so far for 3 days my acne is drying out and the blemishes from the acne are not so visible anymore!
    So Likas papaya soap do wonders but careful not to buy the FAKE one!
