Review: Yoko Under-Arm Whitening Cream and Deodorant

The packaging claims that this cream can help lessen discoloration on underarms and other sensitive areas. Also, it claims that its extra strength formula helps prevent the unpleasant odor and helps retain conditions and effectively moisturizes sensitive skin.

Ingredients: Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Propylene Glycol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Polysorbate 60, PEG-100 Stearate, Glyceryl Sorbitan Stearate, Niacinamide, Butylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Salicylic Acid, Parfum, Sodium Hydroxide, Stearic Acid, Methylparaben, Carbomer, Xanthan Gum, Ethylparaben, Triclosan, Tocopheryl Acetate, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree Oil), Capric Triglyceride, Disodium EDTA, Cymbidium Grandiflorum (Orchid) Flower Extract, Water

Price: P174.75

It comes in a yellow box which states that it is made in Thailand. The one I bought is 50 grams. The manufacturing date and expiration date is indicated on the box, too. Upon opening the lid, there’s a foil-like seal that you need to take off. The cream’s scent is good and quite familiar. I just could not distinguish what scent it reminds me of. As for its consistency, I find it perfectly fine. However, it took quite some time before the skin on my UA absorbed the cream. I wish it dried faster.


Will I recommend it? Yes, because it has not harmed my underarms, at least not yet. I was a bit hesitant to try this kind of product because it might give me darker pits. The good news is, it helped whiten my underarms at least two shades lighter. On the other hand, there are still some dark spots on the area. I only apply this cream at night, because I doubted its reliability as a deodorant, especially with the heat outside. I use this together with Yoko’s Spa Salt which I will talk about in a different review soon.


PS: I would love to post my before and after photos. However, being the shy girl that I am, I chose not to post them instead. Thanks for understanding.

  4. Thanks for the review. I saw this product years ago sa mga Chinese drugstores, hindi ko pinapansin kasi I thought hindi maganda. Should consider this on my next to buy list.

  9. First time to hear or read about this kind of underarm cream. For me, as long as it does not stain, I will most likely use it.

  10. I'm such a noob when it comes to UA whitening creams! XD I'm satisfied how mine looks, but if this does work, I'd like to try it too. No harm in getting the UA one or 2 shades lighter naman. ^^ Anyway, where id you buy this cream? :) Thanks!

  14. Hope they deliver again at watsons sm makati. I've already used it and i'm happy w/ the result. It really whitens my under arm. Sadly when i look for it at sm makati it's out of stock so i tried gluta c whitening soft gel. I was dis appointed, in just a week it darkens my under arm instead of continous whitening..so i stopped using it and decided to buy yoko again.When i checked again it sm makati, still out of stock:(
