Leading Brand (white variant) vs. Shield (cleansing white) Product Review

I got excited when I was approached to write a review about two products; one that I have been using for a long time and the other one which is completely new to me.


I am an active person, I have a lot of work at home and even at my job, and I sometimes sweat too much. Being always on the go, I am very particular in choosing the right bath soap. I always choose something that keeps me feeling clean and fresh for a longer period of time. I have tried tons of soaps in the market but only few works good for me. Also, I have an incredibly sensitive skin that gets irritated easily, whether by the beauty products, whitening soaps, lotions, dirty water, or the environment. And because of that, I stick with mild anti-bacterial soaps as much as possible, just to be on the safe side. 

In this review, I’ll do a side by side comparison of Leading Brand (white variant) and Shield (cleansing white). They are so similar; I thought it would be helpful for you to know the differences (and similarities) between the two anti-bacterial soaps. 


"Leading Brand (white variant) vs. Shield (cleansing white)"

Price (SRP): Leading Brand – Php16.00 (60g.), Php38.00 (135g.) vs. Shield – Php10.00 (60g.), Php22.00 (120g.) 

Packaging: Comparable, but I like the packaging of Shield soap better. It looks prettier to me. But packaging doesn’t really matter that much. 

Fragrance/Scent: I have been using the Leading Brand and I like how it smells. It’s not completely fragrance free, but it has no apparent fragrance and does not irritate my eyes which are a bit sensitive. As for Shield soap, it has a nice fragrance that suits both men and women and it lingers enough to keep you feeling fresh all day. I love how it makes my skin smell good after showe.

Skin Feel/Texture: I like the Leading Brand a lot, although I am not completely satisfied. I don’t like to feel dryness when I finish taking a bath. With Shield, it’s a bit different. Shield leaves my skin feeling smooth without dryness, probably because it comes with an active skin moisturizer. 

Consistency: It’s scary how similar they are. I have been wondering if they are same product but with a different fragrance and packaging. 


Bottom Line: So which anti-bacterial soap do I like better? It’s really a close competition because they feel so similar to me. But if I had to choose only one, I’d choose Shield Cleansing White. Price wise, it’s cheaper compared to the Leading Brand and also available in any supermarket. I also like the fresh clean scent that stays all day. Even though it is a brand that is so unfamiliar to me, I’d still continue using this one. It does not leave my skin feeling dry after every shower.

  3. For me, they are sort of the same. So I guess whichever is cheaper is better. If Shield is cheaper, then Shield is better.

    1. I thought the same. If you'll get something the same at cheaper price, why not? ;)

  4. I was using expensive whitening soap for couple of months but I couldn't see good results. My friend gave me shield soap and I tried. I was surprised that my skin was not dry anymore and started to whiten.., so I decided to look at the grocery store and fortunately it was available. I'm using it until now, thanks "Shield" :-)
