Active White Plus Bleaching Cream ~Review

Hayii! So today's review is more of a skincare than a cosmetic. Introducing...*dandadadan!* ActiveWhite Plus Bleaching Cream.

"Active White "BLEACHING CREAM" has a unique natural skin care properties that whitens in just 7 days and helps prevent the signs of premature aging. For best results, use regularly with active white sunblock and other active white beauty products."

Ingredients: 2% Hydroquinone, 0.25% Retin A, Glycerin, Aloe Vera Extract

Comes in a yellowish paste-like form
I bought this last April 4, 2012 with the hopes of making my dark spots lighten, but to no avail. It didn't help even in making it less noticeable. I consumed one jar only and consumed it for less than a month because I have read that products with hydroquinone should not be use for a prolonged period (not more than 6 months). This product contains 2% Hydroquinone so beware of its side effects. It has been banned by the Food and Drug Administration since January 2001 for sale mainly in Europe, Japan, Australia and Asia because of its carcinogenic (cancer-causing) properties causing more damaging hydroquinone hyperpigmentation.

  • inexpensive (it retails for Php179.75 but I got it for Php161.75) 
  • dermatologically tested
  • somehow softens the skin
  • the scent! mabango for me :)
  • didn't deliver its promise (whitens in just 7 days)
  • didn't help in lightening dark spots (maybe I should use it continuously?)
  • contains hydroquinone
  • hard to find (some ActiveWhite stalls don't have it)
Will I repurchase? Hmm, maybe? Or maybe I'll go find another one. :)

Rating: 2.5/5

PS: What might work for me may not work for you and vice versa. We all have different skin types. Might as well consult your dermatologist first before anything else, just for your safety. :)


  1. may isa akong nbsang blog. she also use this. okay nmn daw. and hydroquinone is safe nmn daw?

  2. ako rin nabasa ko yung isang review highly recomended xa ...ask ko lng sis if magpepeel b ang face mo dito ?

  3. Finding a suitable bleaching cream for your skin becomes a difficult task at times because the cream can cause irritation and can harm your skin. Everyone must try Active White Plus Bleaching Cream.

  4. Nagtry ako nitong active white bleaching cream..mahapdi lng sya pero hnd nman sya nagpepeel. Nkatapat ako sa fan after ko mglagay kc mhapdi.. 3 days plng ako nglalagay...
