REVIEW: Flawless Beauty Online Gluta Strawberry Milk Bar + BirthdayGiveaway #3 (CLOSED)

So finally, the weather is starting to be nicer again. It has been raining really hard here in the Philippines for the past few days. It even rained on the day of my birthday. It's not like I'm not used to it. Haha! Well, at least my skin won't get burned by sun.


Anyways, I want to let you know that I've always wanted my skin to be fairer. I have tried a lot of soaps that has whitening effects in it and some worked and some did not. Last summer, my skin darkened due to too much sun exposure. Can you blame me? Summer here in the Philippines is like soooo fun! You just have to swim and experience the heat at least during summer.


When Ms. Lei of Flawless Beauty Online told me that she will be giving a whitening set for my birthday giveaway, I was really happy and I feel so blessed for them to trust my blog right away. Little did I know, she also included a 250g-pack of Gluta Strawberry Milk Bar scrap soaps for me to try out. My skin lightened after summer but I still want to at least retain it and the scrap soaps are just in time.





Flawless Beauty Online (formerly Flawless Beauty Online Shop) started as an online seller of dermatologically tested skincare products in the defunct Friendster site which had its official launch in June 2009. Since then, Flawless Beauty Online following its success in selling skincare products online and offline had also ventured into marketing apparels, perfumes, bath and body, bags and accessories.

Flawless Beauty Online is operated by me, Lei with my husband, John Arsad, and a partner based in Quezon City, Philippines. So your orders may be shipped from either Bongao or Quezon City depending on our stocks availability. I am in charge with sales and marketing, John with the Finance and our QC-based partner with the production.



Flawless Beauty came into existence because of my passion for beauty and wellness. When i gave birth to my eldest son 4 years ago, i have developed an ugly melasma that are practically black patches all over my cheeks and upper lip. Then i found this beauty regimen which i initially tested on my mother's face. It was not before long that I have seen dramatic results on her face. That gave me the courage to follow suit. When friends and relatives noticed our glowing skin, they wanted to buy the kit. That's when i started selling my beauty regimen to others then the rest is history.

Our beauty products are formulated by licensed doctors and chemists using only premium raw materials. It is manufactured in a laboratory with a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) certification and BFAD approved. Our supplier supplies most derm clinics in manila.

REVIEW:

Delivery = 5/5

The delivery was fast and the items arrived in excellent condition. No items were damaged during the course of travelling from their place to mine.


Packaging = 4/5



The paper bag is for the win! I love the hot pink color which makes it so girly and I also love that the name of their shop is written (actually, it's sticked to it) which adds professional look to it. My scrap soaps were placed in a clear plastic with pink ribbon tied to secure it. I also like that they included a calling card with a note at the back. It will be a great help in case after a long period of time and the buyer wants to order again.

The items for giveaway were labeled accordingly. One thing caught my attention is that ingredients aren't written. I don't understand some ingredients used to beauty products but I would love to see them on the items I am using.











For the bar soap, Flawless Beauty Online's name is engraved.



Effectiveness = 4/5
The scent (and the color) reminds me of the Strawberries and Cream from Starbucks. It smells so good and it's kind of relaxing. I used the soap on my body since I am following a strict skin care routine for my face. This did not dry my skin at all. Even if a rarely apply lotion, my skin still looks good. I did not notice any whitening effect yet although it did my skin color. No darkening experienced. I have yet to use this longer for me to conclude on that. I have used this for more more than two weeks and I only have 2 scrap pieces left. This melts easily. That's when scraps soaps get into the picture. I love scraps soaps because you have more control. Only a small piece will be soaked therefore, less wastage.





Availability = 4/5
This is only available via Flawless Beauty Online's Facebook page. Unlike other soaps, you won't see this in the beauty section of the local malls/grocery/supermarket. But since I love to shop online, that's a no biggie for me.

 

Affordability = 4/5


Retail price: P130 / bar

Weight: 150g
Quite expensive compared to other local whitening soaps I have tried.


OVERALL RATING = 4.2/5

I love this variant. It's my first time to try out a strawberry based soap and I just love it. The moisturizing and relaxing properties, I must say, makes the high price worth it. It also maintained the color of my skin even though I constantly expose myself to sunlight without lotion with high SPF. So, I love it!

 

Will I repurchase?

Yes. I also wanna try the Arbutin soap. I have read some good feedbacks about it.

    It depends on the physical structure of a person but I personally think that you look better fair. Unlike Venus Raj, you have look that will look better whiter.

    fFair complexion appeals to the majority which I prefer for you.However if you feel more comfortable with a tan complexion so be it I will respect and think you are still pretty and it shouldn't allow that alone to affect you too much on how you view about yourself. Thank you for the giveaway hope many more will join. :)
