1. Daltokki Whitening Essence - 100ml ($35)
"All you need is a single drop of Daltokki's Whitening Essence mixed with a facial cream for a whitening & moisturizing effect, with a sunblock for creating the naturally brightened skin tone, and with a BB cream or a foundation for creating the fully covered and perfectly toned up complexion.
How to use: Mix in a drop of the Whitening Essence with a cream, a sunblock or a BB cream for the effect you desire. Suitable for both facial and body application."
I cannot get over the "rabbit" face thing on the bottle. It's just so... freaky... It's like half human, half rabbit.
2. Nella Fantasia Oneday Whitener - 120ml ($29)
"This is a magically whitening body lotion that instantly moisturizes and brightens up dry, coarse, and darkened skin tone for a lasting glow all day long. It's also non-stick and strong against water and sweat.
How to use: Apply an adequate amount of the lotion evenly over areas of your body you wish to moisturize and brighten up. Make sure to massage it in until all's absorbed into the skin."
I wonder if this works for scars. I have a heap of scars, particularly on my legs from my allergy reaction to fake self-tanners (I get a nasty rash). I shall put this to the test!
3. original raw First Essence - Vitamin Essence - 110ml ($26)
"Both the Red Essence and the Vitamin Essence are combinations of a skin toner, an essence, and a lotion all in one. Also, they're both enriched with various vitamin nutrients and dragon's blood extracts from the dragon tree and work to instantly rejuvenate and brighten up the damaged or sagging skin.
How to use: After cleansing, wet a cotton pad with 2-3 drops of First Essence and gently pat it all over your face."
I obviously received the Vitamin Essence. I love multi purpose products, as I do get quite lazy. This product sounds quite unique, as I have never seen a product that acts as a toner, essence and lotion. It will definitely be interesting to see if it's moisturizing enough to not have to use a moiturizing lotion.
4. Morningtree Revitalizing Whitening Deep Spot - 20ml ($34)
"Excessive melanic pigmentation is responsible for darkened spots over your body - face, hands, arm pits, busts, elbows, knees, heels, and even the Y-zone. This high concentrate, gel-type essence will soothe, cool, brighten, and repair such dry and darkened spots, and it's suitable for all skin types and for both men and women.
How to use: Apply an adequate amount of the Revitalizing Whitening Deep Spot over dark spots and massage it in for full absorbance. You can also store it in a refrigerator, and then apply it over puffy eyes for soothing and whitening effects."
The only dark spots I really have on my face are scars from acne that I had years ago. I have pretty much lost all hope of finding a product that will get rid of those scars. I also have been blessed, as I do not have puffy under eyes, neither are they dark enough for me to worry about eye creams. As such, I probably will give this product away.
5. Ipsennature 5 Seeds Apple Water Brightening Scrub - 80ml ($26)
"Made from apple water, apricot, raspberry, walnut, rice and corn seed powders, this Brightening Scrub is a cleansing scrub which works to gently peel away all dead skin cells and skin impurities and deliver skin replenishing and brightening effects all in one!
How to use: Spread out the scrub evenly over your wet face and massage with your hands for 5 minutes. Rinse off with warm water."
I love scrubs! Although, my standards are pretty high after finding my HG scrub (Clinique Mens Face Scrub, in case you were wondering). I am quite excited to see how this compares!
