Hey there! Yes, it’s another Godiva LicoWhite review. I originally planned to make it a capsule review since I used them all at the same time and they’re all from the same line – just for the sake of eliminating redundant information. But I figured making individual reviews instead would make it easier to search. So let me just apologize in advance for the nonstop Godiva LicoWhite review in the coming days. Brace yourselves! ๐Ÿ™‚
Product Description:

Godiva LicoWhite Whitening Soap cleanses and whitens as it events out skin discolorations. A gentle, non-drying cleanser enriched with Glabridin from licorice for brighter, fairer skin. It has high levels of whitening ingredients for faster results. Safe for continued use for longer-lasting whiter skin.
Just like Godiva LicoWhite Whitening Lotion with SPF15 (Read review HERE), this also has Licorice – (Glycyrrhiza glabra) an extraordinary active ingredient rich in antioxidant and antimicrobial properties – to hold back skin’s melanin production and at the same time nourish and protect the skin. Although effective, this ingredient is rarely use in skincare products thus making Godiva LicoWhite one of the most effective commercially available skin whiteners.
The bar soap itself reminds me of prescription derma soaps because of its translucent appearance. It lathers on nicely though it doesn’t really foams up as much as typical bar soaps do. I know most of you would agree on this, most whitening soaps often strips the skin off its natural moisture and causes it to look like a freakin’ chalkboard with white streaks. But not with Godiva LicoWhite Whitening Soap. It leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean without the dry feeling. Basically, it thoroughly cleanses the skin and at the same time, it somehow also aids in lightening the skin color without dehydrating it.
My only problem with Godiva LicoWhite Whitening Soap is its smell. The soap itself has a very mild herb-like scent – nothing overwhelming but not refreshing either. It’s not a big deal at first but after I take a bath, as usual, I sweat in just a matter of hours. I used this during the summer and what I noticed is that my sweat smelled, well like sweat but this time, it’s stronger. This goes without saying but it amplifies the odor in a certain degree that forces me to take a bath again after just 5 hours. Although I wonder if this still holds true now that the weather’s cooler.

Is it weird that I wrote the review of my least favorite right after my most favorite from the LicoWhite line? Anyway, yeah, this is my least fave just because of the smell.. but other than that, this is actually not bad for a daily bath soap. It’s affordable, moisturizing and effective – in cleaning my body, at least. As for the whitening stuff, I think I’ll need more than 1 bar to really see the effect. I can’t really say much but I guess this would probably work after a few months time.. with continuous use of course.
