I'm in the middle of using the Belo Intensive Whitening line and this will be a mini review. It's mini because I've only been using it for two weeks. It takes the skin about 4-8 weeks before it renews itself so two weeks of using the Belo soap, face cream and body lotion isn't enough yet.
And yet I'll tell you a bit about it anyway!
I wanted to use Belo Intensive Whitening line because I have a lot of acne scars and sun spots. I'm always looking for a way to brighten (not whiten) my already fair skin, but—believe it or not!—I've never actually tried any! Mas malaking problem kasi sa akin before ang pag-manage ng acne ko. But now that my hormones have finally (knock on wood!) calmed down, I can see that the pimples have left dark spots all over my face. My three pregnancies have also left my body with pigmentation. In short, hindi na ako iisang kulay. I'm marbled.
Belo's whitening line has two ingredients that will address my concerns: kojic acid and tranexamic acid. Kojic acid inhibits the production of melanin, which is what gives us our skin color. Tranexamic acid is also a melanin-inhibitor but it also takes care of skin damaged by the environment, like the sun and pollution. It’s also great for targeting stubborn dark areas like elbows, knees, kili-kili, singit, hehe!
But, okay, the real reason I decided to use the Belo Intensive Whitening system is this commercial:
Haha, yes, sobra akong influenced ng mga commercials!
Since I can't give a full review, I'll just tell you my progress so far.
