I've always been a fan of products that can lighten and make my skin glow. Hey, don't judge me okay! I'm a Filipina and we all know for a fact that majority of Filipinos long for that healthy, light and glowing skin.

So when I got invited to an intimate gathering for Mestiza soap launch, I didn't consider to decline.

This is my outfit for the event ~ a simple laid back refreshing white attire :)

Meztisa Soap is proudly Philippine made product made from all-natural ingredients that promote healthy skin like the Papaya extract, Carrot Extract, Banana Extract, Virgin Coconut Oil and Calamansi Extract. 

If you will read it from a research ~ when all the said natural ingredients are combined, the result is really effective plus it can provide most skincare benefits. Come to think of it, coming up a soap containing 5 natural ingredients must have gone through rigorous tests and study, kaya I really admire the lady behind this wonder soap.

Take it from me, I've seen right before my very eyes the process kung paano nila ginawa yung soap.

And nakakatuwa lang to share that it is the only soap in the market that contains 33% VCO.

Mr. Bacani giving an introduction to the history of Mestiza and how his Mom, Ms. Elizabeth Bacani ( at the middle) started and work her way for the brand's success. 
Guys, we all know the many benefits of VCO, so I'll take it from there.... uhmmm, Isipin na lang natin that one of its major ingredients is VCO, so alam na. haha!

But kidding aside, please continue reading on to learn why there are so many good reviews about this soap.

Dra. Sarah Barba, who runs the Clinica Figura skin clinic in Alabang graced the event where she shared a brief talk about Healthy Skin. Her expertise is in Anti-aging Medicine, Aesthetic Dermatology, & Integrative Medicine. 
To share with you, here are the 5 natural ingredients of Mestiza Soap and its benefits:

Papaya Extract

Carrot Extract
Carrot Extract is very effective in helping to alleviate different skin problems, especially acne when applied topically as a facial wash or bath soap. It greatly helps in improving the quality of one’s skin.
