In the modern world these days, who doesn’t want to look fair? Literally everyone that lives in the Asian countries are very much into anything that gives our skin the fairness, brightness, luminous and radiant glow. Everybody know I am into brightening beauty regimen although bronzing up the skin to look like as I have sun-kissed skin is my most favourite makeup step to do 😀 . However I don’t like to look pitch white overall. What I’m looking for is that radiant and glowing skin. And that is how I embarked onto the Hakubi White C Series regimen. I have tried many whitening or brightening skincare and I have yet to try a brand from Japan. Yes! Hakubi is from Japan. The brand is by Sato Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd., an established name in healthcare in Japan, with a presence in the US, Europe and Asia. Most skincare works on the outside aka skin surface but Hakubi’s new White C Series lighten skin blemishes as well as blemishes and freckles from the inside out with its unique formulation. Overall the White C Series range only has two products and each of them are different in its way. A topical skincare – White C Gel to be applied on the skin and White C Plus, an oral supplement. When used together, both products aimed to give the skin a brighter, fairer and healthier skin.
While I am still on the whitening Olympic game, I also took on the L’Occitane (pronounced as “LOX-EE-TAHN” for those who still scratching head on how to pronounce the brand name) challenge on trying out their new addition, Reine Blanche Whitening Rich Cream, which is now a part of the Reine Blanche range that was launched 2 years ago. Reine Blanche range was launched with 6 products. This year, L’Occitane added another additional 3 products into the range.
P/S: I don’t think I will ever be off the whitening bandwagon just FYI lol 😛
There are three skincare range I am into and using daily – anti-aging (a must!), hydration and of course, whitening is pretty standard. Asians are into having a fairer skin. That is not the case for me. I love my tan skin! I only started dabbing my toes into whitening because I wanted to lighten my acne marks.
I have been with Clarins since 2010. And I have been on their whitening bandwagon at the same time I started Clarins skincare journey. Now enter the new White Plus Pure Translucency era. In 2016, Clarins launched Tri-Intensive Brightening Serum. And now, this new range completes the whole regimen with Purify, Prepare, Correct, Embellish and Revive steps.
What do you do when Hada Labo released two different gel close at the same time? You do THE BATTLE OF THE HADA LABO GEL of course! 😀 . Rather than the usual one by one product talk-through and making your life harder referring to different pages on which gel to get, I thought why not combine two of the gel and show you what is the difference? This way you will get a clearer idea on which gel to get that is suitable for your skin need 😉
If you are reading this and you go…what Fiona? More brightening again? Yes. You have follow me long enough to know that I am obsessed with anything whitening or brightening. This is the only thing I am very Asian about 😉
To further elongate my 5-dimension luminosity, I switched up to Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Luminous System quite recently. To be quite honest, it took me some time to get used to this new range. Slowly but surely, I picked up the pace and started to understand why fellow blogger friends has been loving it. The whole MelaCEP Plus+™ Luminous System was designed for Asian skin to address a whole new level of luminosity benefits including translucency, brightness, purity, even-looking tone, and hydration.
I admit. I am a whitening fanatic. I am afterall a typical Asian when it comes to skincare but a Caucasian when it comes to makeup. I want a brighter, fairer skin that I am comfortable walking out of the house without any bits of makeup on my face.
SK-II launched a brand new whitening skincare range recently and I am one of the few lucky one to get the product in advance to give it a whirl. The GenOptics Whitening Range was developed specifically to target the effects of UV damage, both on the inside and out while improving the skin’s radiance at the same time. You can say this range is sort of like your skin insurance against future spots from UV exposure damage.
