I could’ve been Asian in another life as I am simply obsessed with whitening products of any kind. The Asian market is flooded with an array of various whitening, brightening products to keep skin milky and fair however the US market not so much. Although this year I am seeing an array of 50+ SPF products, skin tone correctors, etc…so perhaps we are finally catching on to the whitening trend that’s taken Asia by storm for many, many years.
In my quest for less duller skin I purchased Skin Food Fermented Pomegranate Whitening Sleep Mask. Why does the name make me feel like I’m in the basement making illegal liquor? This sleeping mask promises whiter, brighter skin.
Does it work?
Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+ is a milky type SPF that’s oil-free and lightweight for protecting skin against both UVA and UVB rays. Those who have dabbled in Asian sun protection will understand the use of “milky type” as that’s a reference to the formula which resembles a runny liquid, ie, milk.
This is one of sunscreens in the mid-range due to it’s generous size and and nicer price tag of $34.
Let’s take a look!
I find the sudden flow of dark spot correctors on the market recently very interesting. Clinique started the fade up last year or so and this year, particularly this season, we’ve seen various treatments from not only higher end brands but also drugstore ones as well.
I personally go into these purchases with the hope of two things. One, brighter skin and two, I have some darkness around my lower jawline that I’d like to lighten.
Lancome Bright Expert Dark Spot Corrector & Radiance Activator promises results in as little as four weeks. I’ve been using it for a bit longer that so I thought I’d finally settle in for a review.
Take a look!
Almay Wake Up Under Eye Concealer is a new concealer that promises to conceal and depuff. Is it me or does every single new concealer that comes out promise to depuff under eyes?
Maybe they read my blog and realize I need a little depuffing action. Honestly, they NEVER work though. They might conceal the puff but not treat it.
Anyway, I avoided this particular concealer for a while since it’s a squeeze tube with a brush application. No likey the packaging. I knew it would prove messy and I was right but I decided to give it a whirl anyway as that “wake up” bit had me….anything that wakes my eyes up or promises to ends up capturing my attention easily.
Etude House Aloha Ice Sherbert Primer is part of Korean Brand, Etude House’s Summer Collection. It’s actually a traditional release for Etude House as they’ve done this type of primer before however with the Aloha Collection they went and downsized the size of the bottle which stinks as this is a very interesting primer that I enjoy using.
If you remember the Aqua Sherbet Collection (CLICK) you’ll remember this being a far bigger size at a far nicer price tag but I guess we can’t have it all and just should be thankful it’s back!
