Tokyo Love Soap Review: A New Women’s Addiction!!!

 I’ve been hearing about this Tokyo Love Soap being sold online and I got so curious since a lot of women are crazy purchasing one. So I started checking some reviews from other blog to get feedback if it is effective or not. Darn this soap is sure expensive compare to other beauty soaps available in the market! Since it is pricey, I am very careful in researching before I decide to give it a try.

 Tokyo Love Soap is Japan’s #1 soap used by Japanese & Korean celebrities. Is that the reason why it became overrated and pricey? Some resellers are using Amazon Ebay Sulit  Instagram and Facebook to sell this but to make sure I get an authentic one, I purchase it in Tokyo Love Shop.

TLS has 4 different variants:

1. Tokyo Love Soap (Original) 100g

2. Tokyo Love Soap Pure Girls 80g

3. Tokyo Love Soap Professional (Medicated) 100g

4. Tokyo Love Soap Premium 100g

tls1Actual TLS Soaps

Tokyo Love Shop had an October reseller promo, when you buy 3, you get 1 free soap of your choice. (kindly read the promo mechanics and the promo code to get the freebies) I ordered 3 TLS Original and TLS Pure Girls for my freebies.

The site also have detailed information & provides itemized benefits to help you decide which one will work for your skin type. it also has brief reviews from the people who already bought & tried the products. If you wish to continuously use the TLS, I would highly recommend to create a username & password for their site, so whenever you will purchase, you earn reward points that can be converted to a dollar amount and use to pay for any item they sell.

So I got brave enough to purchase this soap and blew money with the hope that I will testify how effective it is. I am very suprised that I received the package 2 days after ordering it. Impressive!

 I used the soap as soon as it arrived (does it sound too excited?! LOL! ) I tried the TLS Original first and these are my observation:

 *It has a light smell and my skin feels supple right after the first bath.

 *You don’t need to keep on rubbing it on your skin coz its soapy enough and it easily gives mosturizing effect.

 *Easy to rinse & no stinging feeling unlike other whitening beauty soaps.

 *Rough area smooth ens right after first use.

 *Dark spot lightens & noticeably peeling as early as third use.

 *I noticed the micro peeling effect all around my body on the 3rd day of using it. Considering that my skin is fair enough. Using body lotion/mosturizing cream that works for you is recommendable during the peeling period.

 *My skin occasionally feels itchy from the peeling but no redness.I just try to avoid scratching it.

 I have been using this soap for a week  on a daily basis and so far, I experience the same positive feedback from other girls who have used it.I plan to write another blog probably a month after this to share any progress.


-Keep the soap in a dry place to avoid it from melting easily. Best  to put it in a separate soap dish with cover.

-You can cut the soap into small pieces for longer use.

 –Tokyo Love Shop is the official site that sells authentic TLS. Buying a Php 750 for a bar of soap is not a joke, so might as well avoid fakes ones.

 -When purchasing via Tokyo Love Shop using your credit card, carefully read the checkout price, the site will show you the peso & dollar value of the product (if ordering within Philippines) but the actual conversion depends on your bank’s foreign exchange rate.

 -Plan ahead in buying the soap.Let me give you a warning as early as now, this going to be a women’s addiction! 😀

 Stay gorgeous ladies!

      hi Apple!
      I am located in the Philippines so my only option is to pay using either Paypal or credit card. I doubt they do cash on delivery method. I would suggest to check thier FAQ’s to this link or shoot them a message for assistance. Hope this will help 🙂

      hi Karen Grace! thanks for visiting my blog 🙂
      Tokyo Love Shop is charging a flat rate for shipping fee anywhere in the world. As of the moment, i haven’t seen any shop that sells the soap so for now, i continue to buy in their official site to ensure authenticity. I will update you as soon as i see one. hope my answer helps 🙂

    Hi! You are misleading people. sells fake tokyo love soap. And I have a solid proof for that! Why don’t you email the sole manufacturer about this! Horrible.. if is based in Japan the package won’t arrive here for 1-2 days and the courier xend is not based in Japan! That shouldn’t be the courier for Japan-Philippines package.

      Hi Ginger! Thank you for taking time to visit my blog. Please understand that my blog is based from my personal experience, it is not my intention to mislead the readers and I am not being paid to write about Tokyo Love Shop. I would highly recommend you can check their site and ask them directly if you have any questions or clarification. I have a friend who took time to check the IP address of the Tokyo Love Shop site and it is from Japan, but still, I am not in a right position to defend them.

      The results I got after using the soap are the same results that most of the people left a comment about, if it is fake, I will personally let you know. Thank you.

      What is your proof? I ordered this soap and I stopped using it…but then I had the courage to use it again ( I bought it from the same site ) it was magnificent! The lines on my face is hardly visible and the discoloration on my upper lip (from a bad wax job) is also lightened up a ton to the point that I don’t even notice it anymore ( and I am a critical person when it comes to my own appearance- but then again who isnt?)

      Based on my experience as well, the site is pretty legit.

        Hi Dana! I admit I got oudated with my blog since I work full time, my bad I was not able to take photo of my skin before i started using TLS until 2 months after. I ran out of stocks and I better act on getting some, from that point on i am planning to post a new blog post about with additional photos. It is nice to hear the TLS works well on you too 🙂

    I recently got mine from Racosme, I got TLS Pure Girls. I already have the mini size of that soap and I loved it that’s why I ordered the regular size. To my dismay, the regular sized soap did not smell the same as the mini, and it did not looked and felt like the mini at all. I asked Racosme (buytokyolovesoap) about it, and the reply was –

    “there is no difference however…

    since the soap mold is smaller .. the color is might brighter than the bigger soap since yellowish discoloration occurs much faster in bigger soap.

    also since the soap is bigger, smell is also weaker than the smaller soap.

    but nevertheless, they should be the same.. its just a size issue that occurs when molding the soap.”

    I don’t think there will be a difference in the smell and the color even if there’s variance in the size. I may have ordered the ones that are said to be for International buyers (buyers outside Japan) and the box has a lady face logo at the top right part of the box. Got mine for P690+P80 (shipping).

      Hi Roa0326! Thanks for visiting my blog 🙂

      The soap I bought from Tokyo Love Shop does not have the logo of the face of the woman, I’ve been seeing some local websites that sells the same but I am not 100% educated where it is originated. Thanks for giving me an idea to research it.I’ve read some blogs that says, it is also original but came from diffirent manufacturers but when you said the color & the scent is different from what you got the first time, i hope you didn’t get a fake one.


      • roa0326
        Dec 17, 2013 @ 02:37:58

        From what I understand, the one with the face logo is issued for International buyers and the ones that does not have that logo are the ones for Japan buyers. I would buy that explanation but what I can’t really understand is if it’s just a packaging difference, and no formulation tweaks, should it not have difference on the smell and color as well? Though I’ve used the regular size from Racosme a couple of times now, and it feels soft after washing, too; it just does not feel the same with the mini variant.

        I hope the quality is the same though I doubt it. Will be looking forward to hearing from you if ever you’d find anything about it. It’s confusing me already. But I guess I’d rather splurge and buy from Tokyo Love Shop instead of local stores. I just don’t want to see that face logo on the box anymore.. Thanks for answering! ☺

    Sadly, most filipino resellers in facebook and instagram sells fake soap. The only legit store that sells Japanese version is so please do not waste your money on soaps from local resellers. Tokyo love shop have stockroom in PH that is why they send it locally since many pinoys are crazy about the soap. If its sent from japan it will have importation fee of around 250 pesos per soap -_-

    Other that the shipping fee, is there any other fee which should be taken cared of by the buyer? I believe you mentioned that the shipping fee was waived for you cause you purchased items worth more than $50. But did you pay for anything else like tax when it was delivered at your doorstep?

    hi girl, does it necessary to use lotion while using this soap? How about if i use this in my face do i need to apply moisturizer., just a question b4 i buy this? thanks


    • LittleMichelle
      Mar 07, 2014 @ 13:43:00

      Hello Jack! Since every woman has different skin reaction into dryness, i would still recommend to use lotion especially if you notice the micro peeling effect while using this soap. I religiously apply lotion on my body and moisturizer on my face after i use tls soap.

    Hi 🙂 Is a trustworthy site to do online shopping? I’m quite hesitant buying from them… ^_^

      Hi Lacie! thanks for visiting my blog 🙂 So far, the items I ordered for them gave the same effective result. If you are still hesitant, you can definitely send an inquiry to them and ask proof of legit 🙂 Have a nice day!

      Hello Joy! Thanks for visiting my blog 🙂 I’ve seen some Cash Cash Pinoy deals about TLS but I haven’t tried buying it there. Do you have any friends from Japan that you can ask favor to buy for you? Not sure kase if TLS site offered cash on delivery option eh.

    hi ! was the whitening effect really drastic ? I mean, I just really want to whiten my skin that’s all.


    • LittleMichelle
      Mar 30, 2014 @ 15:33:16

      Hi Marianne! Thanks for visiting my blog! 🙂

      based on what I have experienced, the whitening effect did not happen overnight but the micro peeling became noticeable after first use. Since my skin is fair, I cannot determine if it changed drastically but using TLS made my skin looks more fairer. I hope my answer helped you a little.

      Have a nice day 🙂

    hi! what soap would you recommend for deep pimple scars?


    • LittleMichelle
      Apr 29, 2014 @ 13:22:52

      Hello Marie! Sorry for the late response. As far as I know, the TLS focuses on whitening your skin but it was not specifically mentioned that it cures deep pimple scars. Based on my experience, I have had some pimple marks on my face back in 2007, I paid a visit to derma and i was advised to take some mild facial wash and moisturizer (Celeteque) and I took Diane pill,it cleared my skin after 6 months. I hope that will also work for you too and find a good derma to give your some advises.

    is diane pill really helps to vanish deep pimple scar?

      Jun 05, 2014 @ 22:01:22

      Hello Apple! Sorry for the late response. Before i took the Diane pill, I consulted and OB- gyne first so she can assess how bad my hormonal imbalance was. My pimple scars were noticeable, as in with black marks, and it faded after 8 months of taking the pill. If you can take a look on the gravatar photo, you can barely see it. I am happy with the result and I hope it works for you too.

      Hello tiny_bubbles_08! thanks for visiting my blog! 🙂 I’ve used it for a couple of months and you were right, I did not experience the whitening effect right after first shower, though I noticed the micro peeling. I can say that it is part of a marketing strategy i guess. The result of the soap is good but not as right after first shower.

      Hello Mai! Thanks for visiting my blog! As far as I can remember the courier used when I ordered the soaps was not LBC, they used a different courier but before your purchase Mai, i would recommend to send an email inquiry to and clarify it. I hope this will help you 🙂

    Great review Michelle! I just want to share my personal review about L-GlutaPOWER soap that I’ve been using and it really works for me! 🙂 I’m using Royale products lately, and decided to make a blog about it, but I don’t sell them btw, but I mentioned the dealer of these beauty products in my blog. 🙂 You may check out this link for my L-GlutaPOWER soap review: 🙂 Thanks! ❤

    Hi Michelle
    I buy my tokyo love soap from my supplier who is a direct importer of Tsubaki shampoo and recently I purchased from RACOSME and there is a big difference. The soap is not as soft as the one from my Imported supplier from Japan. How many days if we purchase from Tokyo Love Shop?

    Hello. When it is delivered, do you still have to claim it at the post office or will they deliver it at your doorstep? Thanks!
