How To Spot Fake Tokyo Love Soaps : Which is Original and which Tokyo Love Soap is Fake?

NEW POST UPDATED!

NEW BOX FOR PHILIPPINE VERSION OF TOKYO LOVE SOAP!


First, I highly recommend buying your tokyo love soaps from www.tokyoloveshop.com as they sell authentic  soaps and is based in Japan and Singapore and is the cheapest since they sell using Japan pricing. DO NOT BUY FROM OVERPRICED FILIPINO RESELLERS specially based in the province as most of their products are tampered and just bought from rakuten thats why it costs way too much. Here in Japan, 48 pieces of TLS premium or one box, costs only about 650 usd / 70,000 yen or about 28,000 pesos not 46,000!. Also, its very rare to find tokyo love soaps in tokyo, its not popular here in Japan its only popular in the Philippines because people says its popular in Japan buts its really not and filipino are gullible and easily fooled. You can basically search the entire tokyo city area and you will not find any decent shop selling tokyo love soap. 


SEPTEMBER 5, 2013 UPDATE : AS OF TODAY, HAPPY PRICE ADMITTED THERE ARE FAKE TOKYO LOVE SOAPS. THIS POSTS HAS BEEN OUTDATED AND THE RECENT STAND IS:

THERE ARE FAKE TOKYO LOVE SOAPS.

To be sure, only buy from 100% authentic distributors such as:

http://ainz-tulpe.ainj.co.jp/   if you are in japan (highly recommended, main distributor)
http://www.rakuten.co.jp/ if you are in japan
https://global.rakuten.com/en/ if you are outside japan (not recommended to philipino clients due to high custom tax and it will take a month to arrive)
http://tokyoloveshop.com/ if you are outside japan (Recommended since they ship 5 days only to Philippines and no custom charges worldwide, they also buy their stuff from ainz tulpe shibuya)

All of the sellers above are 100% authentic sellers so their box is 100% japanese version. Happy price released a new box for international clients so it might differ if you buy direct from Japan.

This post is already updated but I will not delete the original post.


Okay, as we all know, popular products in Japan are being copied in other countries particularly China. My ever favorite soap is Tokyo Love Soap since the effect is really amazing. I like the Original version (White) best because Ultimate and Premium are a little bit harsh for my sensitive skin I sometimes feel itchy.

Im going to teach you how to spot fake Tokyo Love Soap easy!

First look at the box.






Those 2 pictures above are Genuine Tokyo Love Soap Plain. Notice there are no other markings aside from the Tokyo Love Soap words and the heart design, the reflection and a little bit of text.

Now see the picture below which I took from philipino reseller on facebook. I was laughing my ass off because he even put his site name and facebook shop on this picture. Maybe for easier law suit against him.




First one to look at is the TOKYO LOVE logo underneath the TOKYO LOVE SOAP logo and little text. Its a shape of the heart letter T and L.




I magnified it and put it right here>>>> We will call this logo "TL"


Here is the explanation why there is this logo on fake tokyo love soaps. Tokyo Love Soap main logo (the one on the center of the box) is a registered sign used by HP Ltd or Happy Price, the company that manufactures the soap way back 2005 (HP does not anymore exist, they are bought and renamed Tokyo Love Soap Japan since thats their only product anyways). They dont need another sign to place on the box because it is already their mark in Japan and its protected by law.

The other logo, "TL" is made by the chinese counterfeiters in order to pass chinese customs (Mainland, Hongkong, Taiwan) since it is their MARK and the real genuine logo was merely the name of the soap and not their company mark. This allows them to freely register the WHOLE BOX as their entire mark in China. 

China trademark is quite different, since there are LOTS of chinese product, just a little symbol will make a huge difference. Put a red horn on the two golden arches of mcdonalds and they will register it as yours! its that simple.

This will allow them to freely export the product abroad mostly to thailand, malaysia and philippines where people wants white skin. 

As long as that evil "TL" sign is not on the box, its guaranteed original since even in China, regulation is very strict but there are some loopholes that are being abused like this one.

All fake products from original to premium to ultimate soaps has TL logo. All original has none. Also look at this part of the box:




Notice the edges of the box? This is because counterfeiters, to save money, uses a thinner paper on the box. It is easily folded and bended with just little effort. I bet this guy even took the best box to screenshot and other boxes are worst than this.

Now lets look on the original box


This is the soap im using, the premium version. I basically stepped on it and I weigh 65 kg/143lbs and the box basically held my weight. Notice that only the top cover caved in and the corners are still intact? I removed the soap by the way so this is just an empty box. Also at the bottom of the original box there should be a code. Fake products has a code that starts with JP.... or JPN.... just to emphasize its from Japan where in fact, the code should never start in JPN because this is a batch code! Meaning it should be letters A to Z.

how convenient that JP or JPN all aligned themselves.

and now, how to finally spot the fake one even without the box... SIMPLE :)



Its easy to spot aight? The genuine product is very generous with its covering while the fake one barely fits in with lots of crumpled plastic at the side because it doesnt even match the size of the product.

Hopefully with these tip, you are sure to get only the original! Also just buy from the trusted dealer like jp.rakuten.com and tokyoloveshop.com. buy from big companies. my foreign friends buy theirs from tokyoloveshop.com because they exclusively sell ultimate version of the soap. I myself buy from family mart here in tokyo. 

An anonymous girl from malaysia emailed me a couple of days ago and asked me if the soap should have a pink heart at the back because there is a deal site there that sells tokyo love soap white and it has a pink heart at the back. This is the answer:

Both fake and original korean made tokyo love soap white has a pink heart at the back, however, the super genuine japanese version has none. So as a tip, I suggest getting the one WITHOUT THE PINK HEART AT THE BACK to make sure its 100% japan made.

Tokyo Love Soap is made in Japan as well as korea and the boxes with pink heart at the back are the korean soaps while the one without are japanese soaps. Premium, Medical, Ultimate and Girls are not made in korea that is why all of them has no heart at the back.

Also as long as you buy in Japan there is no fake. Government is very strict here.

  1. hi there...i just want to comment about your malicious blog about spotting the original and fake love soap....you were saying that the fake tokyo love soap has this "TL" insignia at the bottom part of the box....just to let you know last night i visited this famous beauty shop around yokohama-shi japan...i saw the love soap they are selling it has this "TL" insignia at the bottom part of the box isn't that if these love soaps with "TL" marks on it were fake the Japanese government should have ordered for that certain establishment to be shut down...the other day i bought soaps from rakuten.jp and when the soap arrived it has this "TL" marks on it also...so this simply means that what you were saying in this blog is UNTRUE so might as well delete this blog instead for you are only confusing the other consumers

    2. I already read your review before purchasing my TLS girls from tokyolovesoap.com :) Unfortunately, even though I live in Japan, it will take 2-3 weeks before it will be delivered coz the stock will come from their stockroom in singapore, according to the customer support. I was told that they have an exlcusive dealer in Japan which is ainz tulpe, an online store and a convenience store, and they're not allowed to ship and sell to local clients.

      Anyway, I bought a TLS original from their exclusive dealer, and it also has TL sign at the center bottom. Does this means it's fake? I don't think it is fake since the customer support told me that they exclusively distribute their products to Ainz Tulpe in Japan.

    1. Hey hey hey..NOT ALL! TOKYOLOVESHOP.COM is selling TLS by BULK. My friend purchased the soap thru WHOLESALE because they are on PROMO. She sells it in the PH for PHP 800.00 If you are going to buy TLS Original at TOKYOLOVESHOP.COM one box costs 750.00 and her selling price here in the PH is only Php 800. It isn't OVERPRICING?! Pls. do not generalize.

      Delete
    2. Siobe, if you apply all the coupon codes in the world one tokyo love soap from tokyoloveshop.com will only cost about 450 php not 750. you just have to email them on their coupon code for 1 box.

    She told me that she ordered it from the real website but im still doubtful.

    Can you tell me if the soap that she's trying to sell is real or not.

  9. Hisako why are you doubtful? the soap looks authentic. All Japanese Tokyo love soaps in stores still uses the heart logo and not the new one about 80% of tokyo love soaps here in Japan uses the original old box and as I said, there are no fake tokyo love soaps.

    1. Doubtful why do u think ? you give them reason to be doubtful because of your blog and what's withyou seems thatyou hate filipinos so much and by the way they're not asian they are pacific islanders also tls company itself said there is no fake tls . Also about the boxes they have new boxes but still using and finishing the old boxes.

      Delete
    2. yes you are correct in everything you said. in Japan there are very few new box, most big company uses the old box still. I don't hate filipinos, i have friends that are filipinos its the way they sell Japan made products that i dont like.

      Delete
    3. @Miyumi Misuke, well you just made everyone of us confused and doubtful.. please clarify your blog.. you made it very confusing!! now they don't know which is original and fake! You better clarify it girl! and take note not all Filipinos I have a good friend of mine who use TLS and she bought it at the drug store in the Philippines, the price is not cheap if you live there of course it will be expensive but reasonable, and she told me the result is truly amazing, and you were saying that it is OVERPRICING for FILIPINO sellers? I don't think so, because it varies from country to country, it depends on the Country's currency! Like here in the USA, if I buy TLS in their online store, it is really cheap! it only cost like $25-$50 which I can really afford it, but if you will convert dollars to Peso or whatever, it will be really EXPENSIVE!! You know what I' am saying here? So you need to clarify your blog, because it sounds very discriminating and Terrible!. Thanks!

  10. HI there, can you help me the check if the love soap sell here are authentic?

    http://www.tokyoninki.com/webshaper/store/viewProd.asp?pkProductItem=6

    I compared the packaging with the one in tokyoloveshop, it look totally different with the one in tokyoloveshop, and the love logo had changed to male & female signs. They had claimed that these love soap are originally from Japan.

    Would appreciate if you could help me to answer my question, thank you very much.

  11. no its not tokyo love soap chloe.. i cant say its fake but its not tokyo love soap. this is a copy or immitation.

  12. Hi! I appreciate your concern for tokyo love soap buyers and your aim to help them differentiate authentic from fake one but I have to disagree with how you described us Filipinos "gullible and easily fooled".Yes you will find some in our country, there are some here in UK as well, i believe they are everywhere in the world tbh but calling us all Filipinos "gullible and easily fooled" in general is not right. Get you facts straight! Good day! :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Marge, I appreciate that but its a common japanese thinking that filipinos are easily fooled and all japanese people think that way its pretty normal here in Japan. Japanese people have superiority complex with regards to other asian race and I apologize if that offended you.

  14. Hello,

  16. Hi! Do the Tokyo Love Soap Pure Girls has the Original ingredients? What is the difference between Tokyo love soap original and the pure girls? Thanks! =)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hi miyumi. I just bought TLS original, ultimate and professional. Via the site tokyoloveshop.com.
    I'm from the philippines and the sight said 15-20 days shipping because i chose regulat type of shipping. I was just surprised that it just took them three days to ship it to our house and that is exactly today and i even had a free item whi h was the mask in gold.
    It gets me a bit doubtful of the authenticity of the site and thus the product. Do they have a warehouse here for online filipino buyers thru the legit website?

    ReplyDelete
  18. @Rachelle Villa - TLS original and Girls are quite different since girls have some sexually enticing fragrance and quite stronger than Original in whitening, however, since it has more complex ingredients, chances of allergies are higher so if your skin is sensitive, original is still your best bet.

    @Angela De Guia - When you buy from Rakuten or tokyoloveshop.com, you are 100% sure your in good hands and the product is authentic. It just like going to Japan and buying here. there are no fakes here. tokyoloveshop.com has a stockroom in PH since last december 2012 since they said that 70% of their customers are filipinos. According to their terms and conditions:

    4.3 Shipping varies from country to country. It will usually take 15 to 20 working days. If your country is: Japan,
    Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Philippines and Indonesia shipping is usually less than 5 days
    as we have stockroom in all of these countries and the package should originate within these countries. We also
    have a stockroom in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Germany for European orders and in California for North American clients.

    so basically its not only PH where they have fast shipping, also in europe and USA and other SEA countries.

  19. what about those from don quijote shop? are they legit tokyo love soap? i purchase the other day but, I cant find the labeling on the box with their ultimate. i only saw 1 w/ white box assuming the original. premium written on the top of the price banner but not on the box, I purchased the silvery box w/c i assume professional since there are only 3 variants, no ulti,ate available. and by your blog on how to spot a fake, OMG! youre description of the packaging (plastic where the soap was packed) mine's a bit small. but the box as you say was really stiff and strong. i even removed a sticker of don quijote on the back to see if there was a "MADE IN JAPAN" logo but the box didnt peel off any skin or paper on it. and oh! i have a question, would you know if they changed their logo cause i cant see any shop selling the same logo photos on the website…and one more, is there really a carving on the soap it self same as shown in the photos? coz mine didn't have…i just assume that there have been changes from the logo and no carvings anymore. since i just recently discovered about this soap. I have no idea which is old or new logo, packaging etc.

  23. Hi there's a very well-known seller in the Philippines of Japanese products, her shop is "BEAUTY_IN_JAPAN" (on facebook and instagram), I got her name from her page its Sheena Marie Ramos.

    I think she got annoyed with a lot of people asking her about a soap, so she posted on Instagram and says that Tokyo Love soap ULTIMATE is fake and that there are no shops in Japan that sell Ultimate that's why its fake. She also said that tokyoloveshop.com is fake that it is only located here in the Philippines because she knows someone who ordered from the website and it was delivered via a local courier/shipping company (LBC Courier).

    Is it true its a limited edition soap and is discontinued and now only sold in a few shops in Japan? I'm just really curious because I bought from a seller and she said its limited now..sadly I bought it before I saw the post about it being fake, so I'm afraid to use the Ultimate and Premium soap I just got, scared I might get itchy or get rashes.. Hope you could enlighten me and other buyers of Tls Ultimate soaps..

    Thanks!!

    1. Ultimate was released for about 2 weeks only in Japan and it is only given as freebies to big companies. its for PROMOTIONAL USE only so its not being sold though i know some shops that sold it, usually those that bought huge stocks. I suggest not believing to anyone not from Japan. I had used Ultimate twice its good but it ran out of stock as fast as 2 weeks. I think it has been discontinued since last year but there are shops i see that still sells it maybe they just want to sell their stocks.

      Delete
    2. also, tokyoloveshop.com can sue her instantly since many japanese people used ultimate before it was discontinued so about thousands of people can testify that there is ultimate as promotional soap. it will be a big case ^ ^ so saying ultimate is fake = million yen libel case.

      Delete
  24. @Miyumi, would you also know what appropriate age can start using the soap? is it ok to use by a 12 year old? and is it ok to use other beauty regiments with the soap esp. for the face, coz I'm supposedly in tretinoin treatment but discontinued it sicne i used the soap the other day.. sorry for these queries, but i seems that you know a lot regarding the tokyo love soaps. thanks!

      Ultimate is not known as PURE GIRLS, they scrapped girls and ultimate altogether and created Pure Girls.

      There are few rakuten stores selling ultimate now, tokyoloveshop still have some stocks as well as some stores in Malaysia.

      Just get pure girls i guess?

    1. hi cherry, yes it has been discontinued only about 50,000 soaps was ever produced. its a tester for their new soap which is now known as pure girls. so pure girls = ultimate notice the scent is almost the same? so basically they did not discontinue it, they just repacked it. Tokyoloveshop.com is known to sell ultimate because they got lots of ultimate during its intial release. I believe ultimate is not going to be stocked for a long time so maybe next month even tokyoloveshop will have no stock at all.

  38. Hi Miyumi. I ordered from Tokyoloveshop.com in August. I received my package and grew doubtful if it was authentic once I opened it. My soaps were not in boxes but the soaps were bundled and taped together with the boxes (the boxes were flat and I had to fold it and put the soaps in myself). It seemed a bit small too. How big are the boxes and soaps supposed to be? ('.' ) I'm just afraid I got fake ones 3':

    1. Buying from tokyoloveshop.com guarantees 100% authenticity. They are selling since 2011 and they are the first recognized online retailer. About your soap, its a standard protocol that soaps should be removed from boxes to pass customs if they are in bulk quantities. Would you rather have an unprotected soap that the customs/post office will man handled one by one destroying the box and leaving nail marks on the soap? You can ask them to ship the soap in a box and then come back here and update me if you can still recognize the soaps that arrived.

      yes, 90% of filipinos selling our products are overpriced and I pity the common filipino consumer for having to deal with them. thats why I am recommending cheaper alternatives/sites to help. What are you talking about? 25 usd if converted to peso is same value.... conversion will not affect the price. Filipinos can afford TLS because its only cheap there if you buy from the right company/stores. there are some sellers that sells authentic and cheaper tokyo love soaps.

  44. Many haters and all of them are from philippines. I am blogging since 2009 that is why my site ranks good in google. Buy from Japanese companies to be sure that your soap is genuine.
