Review: CyLeina Black Pearl Organic Soap

Another Cyleina organic soap I am using is the product line's best seller, the Black Pearl. Since it claims to whiten skin tone instantly, I decided to use it on darker areas of my body such as my elbows, knees, thighs, underarms as well as on areas with dark scars and blemish.

Unlike other organic soaps that sting, this one doesn't. It gives a cool sensation instead. It isn't bubbly unlike other soaps and the scent isn't harsh either. This soap is black but creates creamy white suds when lathered.

The product claims that results can be seen as early as first use and I can attest to that. The darker areas in my body have improved significantly. The soap is so effective that I told my mom to use it in order to get rid of the brown spots (due to aging) on her face. Like me, she is so happy with the result because the spots have started to lighten.

I wish I have discovered this a long time ago. I might have even skin tone by now... :D

Review: CyLeina Organic Tomato Soap

I have been hearing good things about CyLeina Organic Soaps and have been considering of using one for a few weeks already. But since I do not know any reseller in our city, my only option is to order online which I have no time to do so (especially deposit money in the bank) due to work, "other work" and travel planned months ago. Additionally, I also wanted to order in bulk so as to save on shipping but I cannot do so as of the moment because I am running low on funds due to my recent activities.

Fortunately, my co-worker who is an ardent user of the product line decided to sell us some of the soaps she hoarded. I bought one tomato organic soap and one Black Pearl (review to follow), the line's best seller. I chose tomato over other soap variants because it says to help dry up pimples quickly as well as clean and minimize pores. I am not pimply but I do have large pores that often result to large blackhead if not addressed early on.

Unlike other organic soaps that cause stinging sensation during first use, CyLeina Organic tomato soap doesn't. It isn't bubbly but creates rich lather instead. The scent isn't even too strong but just enough to make you feel that you are indeed using an organic soap; sweet and yummy! :D

After using, my skin feels smooth and clean without making it dry or tight-feeling. It reduces oiliness thereby lessens the chances of developing annoying pimples. I’ve been using it for a week and I am now starting to see desirable results when it comes to my pores. But I have yet to see the effects of long-term use. This product has one downside however. It made my face dry but that is what facial moisturizers are for. :D

Will update this post when I see dramatic improvement on my pores.

Review: Avon Clearskin Blemish Clearing

I have been dreaming of wearing those cute two-piece swimsuits but due to dark spots and blemish caused by pimples, chickenpox and what not, the dream is less likely to come true. I simply do not have the confidence to bare my skin full of blemishes in public.

One of my co-workers is an Avon dealer and one day, I noticed another co-worker browsing the Avon catalog. I borrowed the catalog after she finished browsing and as I flip through the colorful and glossy pages, this particular product caught my attention. Claiming that positive results can be seen within 24 hours when applied every three to four hours, I decided to give this a go.

Unlike in the US wherein this gel is placed in a plastic tube, the one from the Philippines is placed in a small plastic bottle with pointed tip to minimize spills. It doesn't have smell so you never have to worry about scents being mixed with your perfume or cologne.

I've been using this for almost a month and I can see desirable results even though sometimes I skip on applying the product especially if I'm running late for work. Dark spots as big as one piece M&M's is reduced to more than 50% and the color has lightened as well.

Avon Clearskin Blemish Clearing contains 2% salicylic acid that promotes the shedding of the skin therefore prevents the clogging of the skin pores. Salicylic acid also acts as an inflammatory agent thus prevents and reduces redness and swelling.

Maybe if I will apply this religiously (every three to four hours everyday) I will have blemish-free skin within a month or two. :D


  • Effective
  • Inexpensive
  • Doesn't have harsh smell
