Having bright and smooth underarms has always been the standard in the history of beauty not only in the Philippines but around the world. For something that is hidden all the time, women would like to pay lots of attention as to how they can make their armpits appear lighter, smoother, and hair-free.
Discoloration in the underarm area is a normal thing and there is nothing you should be ashamed of. Nice-looking underarms can really boost your confidence, especially now that the summer season is here. With the many products that there is on the market today, most of the effective ones are the most expensive ones. However, there are still a lot of products that are affordable yet effective for others.
But one thing is important when it comes to trying new products: check reviews first before using them. This is a lesson learned by a Youtuber named Ranz Harley after his sister tried out a new armpit whitening product which ended up with horrifying results.
According to Ranz, his sister tried using a product called Goree Beauty Cream and after two days, she started to feel that her armpits are itchy. Since she thought the itchiness is just normal, she just stopped using the cream and did not bother checking with the doctor. She started feeling a tingling and burning sensation in her armpits and upon checking, her armpits have several rashes.
Banned in the Philippines
After seeing the results on her sister’s armpits, he tried searching information about the product. Based on his research, despite the great effect on some users, Goree Beauty Cream is banned in the Philippines and was not approved by the Food and Drug Administration due to its mercury content.

Ranz also shared that some previous users of the whitening cream sent him a message telling him that they experienced the similar results.
This is a lesson for everyone. Before trying any products, always check the reviews and their ingredients.
