    Kojic Acid Soap Question

    Can this be used on the face? I read that it burns? How do you use it on the body? Do you lather up, leave on the skin for a minute or two, and then rinse off? Should I do a patch test 1st bf using?

    How do you use it on the body? Just like regular soap
    Do you lather up, leave on the skin for a minute or two, and then rinse off? Yes

    Thanks so much for your reply. I would like to mainly try using this on my lower legs to see if it helps any. I will post back my experience, good or bad.

    @ gymrat, I tried it out in the shower last night after my workout at the fitness center. I lathered up, left it on for about 3 or 4 mins, and then rinsed it off. I felt nothing...no tingle, no burn, no nothing. How often should I used this soap? Daily, every other day, etc. in your opinion? Should I use a wash cloth or just continue to use my hands like I did last night? Also, should I apply some kind of a moisturizer immediately after I get out of the shower? Any more tips or suggestions you might have are appreciated.

    Hello @blueray ! You can use the soap for a month (morning and night) and see if theres a difference in your skin tone. If u start noticing your skin is itching or tingling alternate with a regular bar soap.
    Moisturizer(Jergens/avon is fine) is a must because the soap drys out the skin. Washcloth is your choice to use or not but it helps with the lather. (My little opinion)

    I used it daily, with or without a cloth, moisturizing right after your out is perfect. I never experienced any tingling, burning etc. You won't know what will work for you until you give it try keep at it, you have nothing to lose!
