Lumine Turmeric Soap with Lemon Review

Hi and welcome to my blog!

Today I will be reviewing another whitening soap.

If you are curious why I’m so into effective whitening soaps you can click here.

Anyway, the soap I’m reviewing this time is Lumine Turmeric Soap with Lemon.


Lumine Turmeric Soap with Lemon

I first encountered turmeric in high school while watching A Crazy Little Thing Called Love. There was a scene in the movie wherein helped by her three friends, Nam follows the advice of the guidebook Nine Recipes of Love.

Part of the advice is whitening her skin and her friends scrubbed a yellow paste on her arms.

I got curious and found out it was curcumin, another term for turmeric.

There were videos on YouTube about turmeric and yogurt paste and copied the exact step by step process.

Once a week I make a paste out of turmeric powder and yogurt then spend 30 mins at the bathroom.

  1. I have to put the paste on my entire body 10 mins.

  1. Wait for it to dry 10 mins.

  1. Then wash it all off 10 mins.

I did see improvement back then but there were problems:

  The process is too tedious and not to mention messy. Doing it all over my body seems like forever.

    It leaves yellow stain all over the bathroom. This is a big problem because I have to explain to my mother every single time. Haha

   It can leave some yellow patches on the skin if you don’t thoroughly wash it off. This can be a problem when you’re on the go.

Back then, I wished someone will actually invent a soap out of turmeric.

Then after a decade comes, Lumine Turmeric Soap with Lemon.

Before I continue with my review on Lumine Turmeric Soap with Lemon, let us first discuss the two key ingredients that make this soap effective!

My Experience

The first thing I noticed about the Lumine Turmeric Soap with Lemon is the scent. It has an addicting scent in to it that will make you fall in love every use.

It doesn’t smell like Turmeric or Lemon at all. It has an elegant scent, that’s far from what you will expect based on its packaging.

I’ve been using this Lumine Turmeric Soap with Lemon for about three months now. I discovered it early December while shopping for supplies and toiletries.

The words Turmeric and Lemon caught my attention for both are known to be key ingredients when it comes to whitening the skin.

How I Use It?

I work up on a rich lather and apply it to the face like a mask. Afterwards, I put some of the Lumine Turmeric Soap with Lemon on my KyusokuBihaku scrub and exfoliate all over my body. I try to wait for 30 seconds before rinsing so that the key ingredients will sink in to my skin well.

Since this soap is an all-natural one, It’s not as foamy compared to other soaps I’ve used like Maxipeel Exfoliant Soap. The feel of the soap reminds me of CY Gabriel instead.

And just like CY Gabriel in Special Pink, this Lumine Turmeric Soap with Lemon has a tendency na mahiyang ka.

I noticed that after I finished two soaps, the effect became less noticeable. Although it did whiten my skin and gave me that brighter complexion.

The combination of turmeric and lemon is indeed effective in my experience. It’s a slow process but something sure. Currently, I’m on my fourth soap already.

What I love:

       Combination of two of most powerful skin lightening ingredients
       Herbal bath soap for both face and body
       Noticeable effects in a week
       Smells really nice
       Effect skin whitening

What I don’t love:

       Has a tendency na mahiyang ka
