Last month, I received two soap bars from Royale- L-GlutaPower and Kojic Papaya. It was rather timely for I was just looking for new products to try out.
Since I ran out of my usual papaya soap, all I needed to do was to use the bath soap for a month to find out if it was indeed better than my normal soap. And to fully test out L-GlutaPower facial soap’s alleged anti-ageing and brightening capabilites, I discontinued the use of my usual Tony Moly Lemon Seed Foam Cleanser.
I find it interesting that Royale came up with a glutathione soap specially formulated for the face. You see, I had my share of bad encounters with gluta soaps whenever I used them on my face. The worst thing for me was the prickly feeling associated with breakouts and skin redness.
Thankfully, the first time I used ROYALE L-GlutaPOWER, I didn’t experience any of those problems. Initially, I was won over by its creamy and silky feel just like Pervil Soap’s. Royale L-GlutaPower also produced an ample amount of lather which was always fun during the cleansing ritual. After rinsing, I also noticed that there was minimal skin tightening involved which translated to much lesser skin dryness.
After using ROYALE L-GlutaPOWER for some time though, I’ve noticed a thin layer of scaly skin developed similar to what had happened when I used Neutrogena Fine Fairness Brightening Serum. Through continued use however, I fathomed that when the scaliness disappeared, portions of white skin were revealed.
- Minimal skin tightening which translates to minimal skin dryness.
- Pronounced skin renewal and brightening properties.
- Although the soap itself revealed lighter skin, there were times I felt self-conscious about the thin film of dry skin on my face. A good moisturizer, though helped solve this problem.
Will I purchase a new one?

During actual use, I found that the soap delivered a richer, creamier lather than my favorite Likas Papaya. Because of the extremely hot weather, I found myself using the Kojic Papaya Soap 3 times more than usual which may have boosted the skin lightening process much faster compared to my usage of the other papaya bars.
- I didn’t experience any burning sensation nor rashes of any kind.
- A thin layer of dry skin developed during use similar to what had happened when I used ROYALE L-GlutaPOWER Facial Soap which later on revealed portions of white skin.
- Much faster skin lightening capability than other papaya soaps I’ve tried.
- The thin film of dry skin, although already on cue for skin renewal, made me a little bit self-conscious. To solve this issue, I simply use a body scrub during bathing and a good amount of lotion afterwards.
