Product Review: Monte Luxury Perfumed Soap with Intense Whitening Solution

There are so many whitening soaps available in the market but only a few of those that I've tried really worked greatly and helped in making my skin look lighter. One of the best whitening soaps that I've used is the Monte Luxury Perfumed Soap with Intense Whitening Solution. I know, that's a mouthful!

Monte is a company of skin care, cosmetics, and wellness. The first product that I have tried from this brand is their amazing soap. I know that this soap has quite a long name but what I love about it is that it really lives up to its name and what it claims.

My Monte Experience

I first tried the Monte soap late 2015 when the soap wasn't even launched and out in the market yet. Ms. Sheena, part owner of Monte and one of my long-time sponsors and eventually became my friend, sent me samples of their soap. I was so lucky to be one of those who got first dibs on this soap because it is absolutely amazing!

What I noticed about the soap when I first used it is its lingering scent. It smells really luxurious and the scent stays on for long hours unlike other soaps which are very fragrant yet the smell fades quickly after rinsing off. The Monte Luxury Perfumed Soap is the first legit perfumed soap that I have tried. The scents are actually inspired by some of the top signature/luxury perfumes such as Chanel, D&G, and Clinique.

The Monte Luxury Perfumed Soap in Perky, the orange one, is inspired by Clinique Happy for women. The yellow one which is called Timeless is inspired by Chanel No.5 and lastly, the blue soap called Delicate, is inspired by D&G Light Blue.

Other than the luxurious and lingering fragrance of these amazing soaps, another thing that I noticed about it while using it was that it doesn't lather that much but it leaves your skin squeaky clean. I think we all have that perception that if a soap doesn't lather or create thick foam, it's not effective. So, that was my first impression of the Monte soap while using it but after rinsing it, I felt that my skin is absolutely clean and soft. Also, when I used it to clean my face, I was surprised to see that it was able to remove my makeup, too! Well, if you have a full coverage makeup, it won't completely remove the makeup but for lighter coverage, it works really well.

Now, for the whitening part. I am really skeptic when it comes to whitening soaps because like what I've mentioned in the first part of this post, only a few of the many, many whitening soaps in the market really works. Let me share with you. I think that was just shy of 1 week of using the soap when me and my sister attended church and noticed both our skin looked fairer.

Me: (while looking at my arms) Parang pumuti ako?
My sister: Ako nga rin eh!

Hahaha! And yes, her skin really lightened, too. That moment, we were completely sold! We both fell in love with the Monte Luxury Perfumed Soap with Intense Whitening Solution, whew!

Here's a before and after photo. I first used the Monte soap on the first week of September 2015.

Right: October 2015 after a month of using the soap
Now, here's a photo with my boyfie where it is evident again that my skin got lighter, not just on my face.

I just want to make it clear that I already have a fair skin but after using the Monte soap, it got even lighter.

So, yes! I love Monte Luxury Perfumed Soap with Intense Whitening Solution because it is absolutely a luxurious perfume in a soap, it leaves my skin feeling softer, and it is an effective whitening soap. It lightens my dark spots and other blemishes.
