Review: Bath2Basics Papaya Soap

This is yet another review of a product I picked up while I was in the Philippines.  As I was standing in line to pay, a few soaps caught my eye. This is a review of the Bath2Basics Papaya soap. 

Bath2Basics Papaya Soap

Skin whitening is a huge thing in much of Asia, and this product also says it whitens the skin. When I looked carefully at the claims on the product, I found that this product does not contain any ingredients that could bleach my skin. Instead, it claims to whiten my skin by promoting cell turnover.

Although I was excited about this product when I saw it in the Philippines, I was a little apprehensive once I returned back to Japan. My skin has been feeling a little dry lately, so I was afraid that this product would strip my skin. Fortunately, my skin does not feel tight or dry after using this product, and I have been using it to wash my face.

Price: 58 PHP, around $1.25.  At this price, I did not have very high expectations for this product, but I was pleasantly surprised!


  • Leaves my skin feeling soft
  • Does not dry out my skin even in the dead of winter!
  • Very affordable!


  • The only information I could find about this brand was their Facebook page. It links to their website but it is under construction.  The packaging says it is a local brand from the Philippines, but there is very limited information.


Would I repurchase?  Yes, this is a great value!

Wow, I was really amazed at how well this product worked.   Hope you enjoyed my review!
