Whitening and Anti-Wrinkle


This was not quite what I expected it to be. I was looking for something that was more heavy-duty. Instead this was more like a serum. It works very well but can't stand alone as a moisturiser. I do believe the anti-wrinkle properties and the whitening one works. Not as strongly as a more specific product but this makes a good complimentary item to add to your routine. I use this after balancing toner but before my Paul and Joe whitening serum. It probably has enhanced the effects of the whitening serum and aquamoist cream after that. When I use the products alone I actually do have the 'illusion' that they don't sink as well into my skin like when used with this extra lotion. I think it all boils down to hydration. When the skin is sufficiently hydrated it will be easier for it to absorb more of the good stuff from your lotion, serums, and creams.

As you can see it has a very light texture, almost like a thick gel. A little goes a long, long, long There is hardly any scent to it which I like. I'm very partial to scents in my cosmetics unless it's something that is appealing to me or it goes away rather quickly. My skin drinks this up almost at once. It takes very little effort so your skin to absorb this lotion. I generally target my between my eyebrows, nose, cheeks and marionette lines with this. I tend not to put it near my hairline or my chin as those are spots more susceptible to breakouts if i'm not careful with the amount I apply.
I would probably not repurchase this unless on a whim. One, because I do want to try RMK skintuners ( toner and moisturiser in 1! I always found that concept intriguing). Two, because this is more a supplimentary then a compulsory product. A nice to have but not neccessarily need. I just might try the Beautymaker one and see how they stake up against each other. Beautymaker is half the price.

This looks very moisturizing! I think I'll try beautymaker though, on a budget :(

Anna/JHM -
Yeah! I'm also picking up some Beautymaker for comparison. Found a local supplier that sells the range for about USD3 above the taiwanese price. Will review and let you know when I've tried them ^_^
