This is the Silka Moisturizng Milk Soap with Avocado and Almond Milk Protein. For size reference, this is the 135g bar. For 15 points, one can get the 90g bar from Sample Room. The 135g bar retails for Php42.50 while the 90g bar retails for Php32.00. As I’ve mentioned in my last Silka post, I like Silka soaps in general as this is among the few brands of whitening soaps that doesn’t make me feel dizzy from the fragrance. I was able to even out my skintone in a few weeks after months of swimming classes in school with Silka back in 2013. Now, just like with the Shea one, I can’t say much about the whitening factor as I haven’t been out in the sun for a long time. I’m pale right now. But at the darkest hour in my life (no pun intended), Silka came to the rescue–that’s for sure.
And here is the Silka Premium Moisturizing Milk Lotion with Avocado Oil and Almond Milk. This comes in 50mL (Php45), 100mL (Php77.25), and 200mL (Php137). For size reference, the small one in the photo above is 50mL while the big one is 200mL. One can get a 100mL bottle for 55 points in Sample Room.
This smells exactly like the soap bar, which I think is good because if you really want to smell good all day, it helps to have a soap bar and lotion combo that smells exactly the same. Texture wise I found this feeling like a whitening lotion or a sunscreen, something I didn’t feel with Silka Shea. Like it has this whipped emulsion like texture. This is a bit more whipped and behaves a bit more like sunscreen with the fragrance and errthing that you can feel the presence of SPF23 here.
This, though, will not really feel like a sunscreen in the end as it will not leave a cast. It’s really just the texture per se. Once applied and spread out this will feel like a lotion again. I love how in general the lotions of Silka absorb really quickly and smoothen the skin; it’s so hard to be running around in the Philippine heat with a gunky body lotion.
