I am a sucker for liquid body soap / wash and body scrub. Using them makes me feel "pampered" while taking a shower. I consider bath time my daily 15-minute me-time, so I try to enjoy it especially with the use of soothing body cleansers and scrubs.
I'm on the fair side so I don't care much about the whitening aspects. Still, this is something I would like to use. So what makes this different from other body scrubs?
Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub is a beauty treatment inspired by a most luxurious Javanese ritual called Lulur. The ritual was originally intended for the bride-to-be in order to beautify, smoothen, and whiten her skin before her wedding day. Lulur originated from the royal palaces of Java, Indonesia and products inspired by this traditional treatment are still used by Indonesian women today. - Asian Secrets Facebook Page
Licorice and Mulberry Extract (black/purple jar) - this is the first one I opened and am currently using
Seaweed Extract and Vitamin E (black/blue jar)
Green Tea and Vitamin E (black/green jar) - I did not receive this variant
From the description on the jars, there were no distinct, significant difference between the two. I just tried the Licorice and Mulberry variant first.
Upon opening, it looked like icy white frosting in a jar!
Look at my old pasty body scrub (lower photo), the exfoliating beads appear much bigger and coarser compared with the finer Asian Secrets Lulur scrub.
The Lulur Body Scrub is:
- Elegantly perfumed -- I still prefer a fresh, fruity scent though
- Light, with frothy texture -- not sticky, not pasty, so it glides easily on the skin
- Super fine, with almost invisible exfoliants -- this is what I like most about the Lulur body scrub
- Great for frequent use, like 3x weekly, to remove dead skin cells for a more radiant skin
- Specially formulated to help reduce skin pigmentation, even out skin tone and rid of dark patches of skin, like on elbow, knees, underarms and area between thighs -- I like this too!
Scoop, massage, rub, and rinse. The body scrub washes out easily, and leaves a squeaky-clean fresh feeling. But I felt my skin is not as silky-smooth so I still need to put on body lotion afterwards.
Overall, I truly like this product and would recommend this to anyone. The extra fine exfoliating beads make Asian Secrets Lulur a great body scrub. And it's so inexpensive!
Asian Secrets also have these beauty soaps called Bengkoang Indonesian Whitening Soap -- in Moisturizing Olive Oil and Natural Antiseptic Betel Extract variants.
Bengkoang is yam bean extract that is also known as a whitening ingredient popular in Indonesia. Again, I am not particular about having whitening agents in skin products. However, it's a bonus factor, ideal to use on darker areas of the body.

My husband and I liked the soap -- it's firm, smooth, rinses well, and does not melt easily.
Like other regular bath soaps I've used before, I did not feel soft and supple after washing as it leaves my skin a bit dry. I cannot differentiate the two variants and I honestly am not too discriminating when it comes to body soaps. As long as I feel cleansed, it's good enough for me. And I did feel clean and fresh with the Bengkoang soap. Surprisingly, it lasted longer than other soaps we've used. I prefer the scent of the Olive Oil.
Asian Secrets Lulur whitening body scrub and Bengkoang whitening soap are available in leading supermarkets, and Watson's.
