Godiva Licowhite Cream Review
It’s been known that many Filipinas want fairer skin. A lot of women have tried several popular whitening products varying from papaya soaps to more expensive solutions like Gluthatione. I found one product in the market that is budget-friendly and good for the skin—it is Godiva’s Licowhite Cream. My problem spots lately are my dark knees and elbows.
- Godiva claims that the Licorice content of Licowhite Cream is 10 times more effective in whitening compared to other whitening ingredients such as hydroquinone, melawhite, or kojic acid.
- The whitener claims it does not contain any harmful products such as hydroquinone or tretinoin.
- It says that the whitening effect can happen within three to four weeks of continuous usage.
- The skin whitener causes no allergies, irritation or redness.
You can apply it to dark spots such as the elbows, knees, and other dark regions. To avoid skin allergy or irritation, always test a new product on the most sensitive part of your skin or the thinnest area such as below the neck or the inside of your wrist. Wait for about perhaps 30 minutes to see if your skin reacts badly to the product or not. Discontinue use when your skin becomes itchy or red after a few minutes since application of the skin whitener product. You can apply this daily both in the morning after bath or at night before you go to sleep.
I used Godiva’s Licowhite Cream on my problem areas which are my elbows and knees for several weeks. I’m happy with this whitening product because so far it did lighten my skin gradually—precisely after three weeks of using it. Unlike other skin whiteners I’ve tried, this one works.
Also since I have sensitive skin, Godiva’s Licowhite Skin Whiteners didn’t cause my skin to itch or react badly. It really works and made my skin more even. Their skin whitener also doesn’t dry my skin. I read on their website that the glabridin found in licorice (which is the whitening ingredient found in this product) is the one that whitens the melanin, which is the pigment that is responsible for skin darkening. Licorice is a plant commonly found in Germany and China. The root extract is commonly used as either tea or flavoring.
- It’s cheaper compared to other whitening products available in the beauty stores like glutathione.
- It doesn’t irritate the skin.
- You can buy it at most leading supermarkets and department stores like SM or Robinsons. Also Godiva has their own dermatology clinic where their products are also available there for purchase.
- The size of the tube is small and it is the only one size available. You can finish one tube in a month or even less, depending on how often you apply it to your skin.
It is a pretty good product that is highly recommendable to Filipinas looking for whiter and smoother skin. Godiva’s Licowhite Cream is easy to find in stores and it is not super expensive unlike other methods of whitening. The skin whitener targets the dark spots on the body such as the elbows, knees or even the skin around the butt area. For me it really works and I began to see some results after a couple of weeks since I applied it on my elbows and knees.
