Tried the Belo Intensive Whitening Line for One Week! (Review + Results)

BELO’s most intensive whitening bar yet that boasts of the unique combination of today’s two most powerful whitening actives.

After exposure from too much sun, we also need to give our skin time to
recover. Most people just let their skin color run their course, but
some people like me, like to accelerate the process and use whitening
products to get the pre-sun skin tone.

This time around, I got my hands on the Belo Intensive Whitening, which are actually full sized samples from Sample Room! I road tested the set for one week to see how it fares for my skin, so read until the end for my before and after results!

The Belo Intensive Whitening line
boasts of the unique combination of today’s two most powerful whitening actives, kojic acid and tranexamic acid. Medically, tranexamic acid has a known effect on bleeding, but as a cosmetic ingredient, it has been found to have skin lightening properties.

Again, The Belo intensive Whitening Line boasts of these two ingredients:

  • Kojic Acid – An organic compound that effectively inhibits the production of
    tyrosinase and melanin, giving skin a visibly lighter appearance.
  • Tranexamic Acid – A peptide proven to inhibit inflammation and melanin formation. It is
    ideal for stubborn dark spots that do not respond to other skin
    lightening ingredients.

Belo Intensive Whitening Bar

Price: PHP 59.75 for 65g

Thoughts: While it isn’t as drying as other similar whitening soaps, my dry skin needed moisturizer after using the soap. it does cleanse quite well too. If you have extremely dry skin, having serum or another layer of moisturizer will definitely help.

Belo Intensive Whitening Face and Neck Cream

Price: PHP 249.75 for 50g

  • moisturizing cream
  • SPF 30 protects against harmful UVA and UVB rays

Thoughts: this works so well with the soap, because as I have said earlier, the soap dries out the skin. I love love love the small spatula it comes with too! Check out my Instagram post for how I used the whole line!

RESULTS

Here is the result after using these three products alone for 7 days. Photo on left is the before and right is the after. Although the picture on the right is more exposed by a little, you can see that my skin became more even toned.

Would I recommend these? Yes, since these are formulated to be hypoallergenic. But as in the usual with whitening products, you still have to watch out for sensitivity, because whitening ingredients tend to be a little aggressive on the skin.
