Joining the Tokyo Love Soap Craze

My cousin and I used to chat regarding beauty products and promos. Late last year, when she visited Japan, she mentioned Tokyo Love Soap and that it was popular. I was intrigued because I didn't know it at all. So I researched about it and found out that many people have been raving about it. I asked her to buy me one and she said she will just give it to me for free as pasalubong (gift.) She said she had a hard time looking for it there and had to go to many stores. I just want to share that she said the storekeepers in Japan are very polite and respectful.

What it is (official description)

Tokyo Love Soap Premium
Tokyo Love Soap Premium is a blend of powerful herbal ingredients formulated to whiten, moisturize and keep your skin feeling and smelling fresh all day. What makes Premium different is the added EGF or Epidermal Growth Factor that speeds up the epidermal turn over rate. EGF also regenerates damaged and oxidized cells to treat and prevent the appearance of acne scars, pox marks, flat scars, wound scars and other types of scarring.
Fullerene and Osmoferine both act as an anti-ageing agent to prevent cellular apoptosis while Damask Rose and Ylang-Ylang provides new scent you will surely crave for. Vegetal Placenta and Collagen Complex treats and prevents fine lines and lessen the appearance of wrinkles.

It is specifically made for skins undergoing rapid cellular apoptosis and skins frequently expose to low humidity, heat and UV rays.

EGF is non-carcinogenic if used topically. It is normally found in human platelets and white blood cells and functions as a healing hormone.

Ylang-Ylang and Damask Rose extracts make sure that the unique smell of Tokyo Love Soap Premium will stay on your body all day.

Happy Price Co., Ltd. is the manufacturer. They also have other products like gels, peels, creams, masks.
Are there fake Tokyo Love soaps? Based on my research, no! Those bearing the logo are authentic but different versions.

  • Does not melt easily. See the picture below- almost 2 months after and it's still big.
  • Very fragrant- the bathroom smells lovely. I can't exactly pinpoint what scent it was. I can't understand the label so I sought online and found out it is ylang ylang and rose scent.
  • I rarely had any blemishes with it and if ever, it's small and goes away fast.
  • Skin is instantly brighter after one use (believe me I wanted to show the "before and after 1 use" of my face)- but of course, it's not magic and permanent. Regular use is needed because we are continuously exposed to the elements.
  • Seems to somewhat refine skin and pores, although I wouldn't say the enlarged pores (or rather deep pitted scar) had disappeared completely.
  • Japan made = high quality!

  • Expensive- a 100 gram bar costs about Php 600 (depending on the variant and seller.)
  • Not easily bought at brick and mortar stores here in the Philippines. If it's available in leading department stores, you could smell and touch the tester. You can purchase thru online sellers.
  • My cousin who gave me this was not hiyang (compatible) and reported she had a facial breakout. So she used it on her body and she said her skin became soft and smooth.
  • After using it many times, of course it will get smaller. Now, this smaller- almost used up- bar does not lather easily and is not as foamy as a "fresh" one.

I opened it last November 4, 2013; this picture is taken December 27.. Left- This is the size of one half of the bar I used. I used it almost exclusively on my face, (on the body only about 4 times); even my husband was off limits.

half bar after more than a month
cut in half so it can last longer

Is it worth repurchasing?
I think so!!! Just include it if budget permits...
