Riane's Review: Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub

You may be asking me, why would I review something that has been reviewed a hundred times by other bloggers?  Well, my answer would be.. “Don’t you want to read what’s my take on it?  I blog/ I’ll blog about product/s that I believe in.” So, that’s it.. Read along! J

Product Description:

Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub is a beauty treatment inspired by the most luxurious Javanese ritual called Lulur. The ritual was originally intended for the bride-to-be in order to beautify, smoothen, and whiten her skin before her wedding day.

Lulur originated from the royal palaces of Java, Indonesia and products inspired by this traditional treatment are still used by Indonesian women today.

Asian Secrets Lulur Body Scrub Variants (Available in 250g and 135g)
-Green Tea and Vitamin E
-Licorice and Mulberry
-Seaweed and Vitamin E

How did I found out about this product? Well, let’s just say that I always pass along the streets surrounding UNILAB and all their gates were all covered with Solenn Heussaff endorsing this product plus the catch phrase, “Puting Walang Tinatago”. J Who wouldn’t want that, right? Lol

I am very excited to give it a try since summer left me with uneven skin tone on arms and legs, plus, I want to improve my overall complexion.

And so I searched the web for this and found lots and lots of reviews about it.  Some were even posted last 2010 and honestly, it gave me second thoughts if I should also write about it?  What’s nice about this is that it can be found almost anywhere, drugstores, supermarkets and the like.  I bought the Licorice and Mulberry variant in 250g.

The “How to use the product” says that it should be applied on a dry skin and so I did.  I applied it all over my body, starting from my feet upwards. It says that it can be applied in areas that are prone to darkening like the armpits, knees, elbows and skin between the thighs.  The beads were fine and I find it NOT too harsh on the skin, it is sweet smelling too.  I have used it for three (3) consecutive days, as it says that it is safe for daily use.  Washing it off takes some time, if you’re familiar with Dove’s effect on wet skin, I can resemble it to that and that’s fine with me. Oh, by the way, I leave it on my skin for about 2-3 mins before rinsing it off.  After bathing, my skin felt smooth but I still applied on my favorite Dove soap in regular and applied my lotion as well.

This is how it looks like when applied to the skin.

My tub almost empty. 

I have observed that it is a non-drying type of scrub, which I love! J What I don’t like about it is that on my third day of use,  tiny red marks appeared on my right arm.  But hey, maybe I over-scrubbed a bit.  I asked Hubby, what can he say about my skin? Did it somehow lightened my skin?  He said that it is smooth and my overall complexion lightened for about 15%.  But since I cannot use it everyday because my skin tends to get red after using it daily then I am going to use it once or twice a week so that I could get rid of the impurities in my skin.

Will I be buying it again?  DEFINITELY.. For a price of P130 for a 250g, it is a steal!  The product really works specially on the smoothing part but the lightening, well, you really have to use it regularly to see its effect!

How about you, have you tried this scrub? Was it effective? Please feel free to share your experience. J
