I got some beauty stuff up for review today – SkinWhite PowerWhitening Lotion.
(and a giveaway at the bottom of this post!)
To be honest, I don’t have any need for whitening products.
I’m already fair in complexion to begin with and most of the time, I always get the “Ang puti mo na!” comment from my friends whenever I see them lately.
I guess that goes with the territory of working from home and not being exposed to the sun for the past 4 years, haha.
My sister, however, is always out of the house. She’s very busy being a mom.
Every day, in the early afternoon when the sun is at its highest point, she would drive all the way from Alabang to Manila to pick up her kids.
She always complains about how the sun is making her arms darker and darker each day.
It’s funny really, because her legs and face are quite fair but her arms are a bit dark!
So when I got these SkinWhite products in the mail, I decided to make her into my guinea pig!
My SkinWhite PowerWhitening Lotion 1-Day Test
Last Sunday, I made my sister try out the SkinWhite PowerWhitening Lotion on her arms.
The texture of the lotion is quite thick, thicker than most body lotions I’ve tried and am currently using. However, it doesn’t feel heavy and gets easily absorbed by your skin.
The scent is very nice, too. I can’t stop sniffing my own arm when I tried it on myself. It smells faintly of sweet lavender and berries.
Wow, do you see that? I can’t exactly call it whitening, but it does have that immediate brightening effect.
Even my aunt who visited during the holidays from Australia was surprised and convinced with the brightening effect that she hoarded a few bottles before leaving the Philippines.
I can’t wait to see how this product will fare with my sister after 7 days, as it promises and is clinically proven to whiten skin in just 7 days.
More Reasons Why I Like the SkinWhite PowerWhitening Product
For those who are ingredient-conscious with their beauty products, here are the list of ingredients used in the product:
I love that the SkinWhite PowerWhitening Lotion has vitamin B3, B5 and E as these ingredients are known help keep skin soft and supple while whitening your skin.
Once or twice, I’ve encountered some whitening lotions that tend to make your skin more dry and my experiences with them weren’t good! My skin would end up dry and itchy and I’d have red rashes on my skin because I’d scratch my self silly.
I also love that it has SPF 20. What’s the point of a whitening lotion if it doesn’t protect you when you go under the sun, right?
While the SPF is not that high, it’s still good that there’s still a little bit of sun protection out there.
The sun’s UV rays in this day and age isn’t what it used to be! As much as possible, I avoid being under the sun because I’m afraid of having wrinkles, hehe.
Like what it says on the bottle, we shouldn’t be staying too long under the sun nowadays.
With all the benefits this product has, you can actually compare it to a BB cream – it has SPF, moisturises and whitens skin and has skin care benefits because of the vitamins it contains!
You can think of SkinWhite PowerWhitening Lotion as a BB cream for the body.
The SkinWhite PowerWhitening Lotion is pretty affordable, too. Only P71 bucks for the smallest size (which is 50mL), while the 200mL is around P235 bucks.
Well, that’s my review!
