Well,I have been into organics lately. Why? I'm trying to cut the amount of chemicals that my body has been bombarded with. I guess you want to think about that too.^_^

Anyway, I was able to purchase this organic soap that I saw during one of my online stuff huntings seven months ago. The wife of my teacher was also raving about it so I decided to check it out. My first purchase of Cyleina's many variants was Black Pearl which they claim as the best seller. It comes with a black box as a packaging and the soap itself is colored black.

BP soap

Black Pearl has the following content:

Collagen supports a smooth, radiant, elastic, and well hydrated skin to slow down the wrinkle formation.
Licorice has anti-bacterial and natural lightening complex for clean and fairer skin.
Arbutin gently exfoliates dead skin cells and inhibit melanin production for softer and glowing skin.
Vitamin E is an anti-oxidant which protects the skin against damage with moisturizing complex for healthy supple skin.

It promises to lighten dark spots caused by sun exposure and pimple scars
. It is effective in lightening dark underarms and inner thighs caused by imbalanced hormones, chemical burns from deodorants
 and delays wrinkle formation with its collagen content.- source 

I instantly fell in love with the soap from the first use because of the menthol content. It makes you feel refreshed right after showering and it also helps alleviate the hotness all day long! You may feel a bit stingy on the face after a few uses but that's okay; I was told by the seller that it sometimes happens and if it does, just wash it off. The remedy for that is to refrain from letting the soap stay long on your face because it is more sensitive than the other parts of the body (skin). You may also experience micro peeling which is a prelude to your desired whiteness of the skin. Don't worry because it's not really visible.

This is the new me (with my wacko hubby); the photo was taken a few months back.
Never mind the pose though. LOL

I honestly don't have much problem with my skin but I wanted to have a fairer complexion. The soap also smells good (mild sweet scent) and it can last until a month or so with 2-4 times usage each day.Black Pearl Supreme (100g) is for sale at 125php (approx. 3 USD) but for resellers they might have slight changes with the pricing. You know, they have to consider the shipping cost and it's a business. 


I have a routine that I follow with regards to using my Cyleina products. I use the Black Pearl on day time and   I use my other favorites alternately in the evenings, which are the following: 

Kojic Soap 
               ( For: Whitening, blemishes, wrinkles, sunburnt skin, anti-oxidant, pimples/acne)

Oats and Honey
             ( For:  skin smoothening, cleanser, tightens pores, sensitive skin, anti-oxidant, dry skin)

Or basically just any variant that I have with me. I am so in love with the products that I have a lot of those in stock. These products are Proudly Pinoy-made!
