Nice and hydrating brightening lotion
November 18, 2020
I bought the "light" version of this lotion and although the directions on Yesstyle are somewhat helpful (better than nothing), they are not very in-depth, and me not being able to read Japanese... Well, I eventually learned how to use this by further googling this product and how to use it. It is very watery in texture, so you need to pour it carefully into your hands. The base of this whitening lotion is hyaluronic acid, to keep your face hydrated, so the best way to use is after cleansing, while your skin is still humid - the hyarulonic acid in the lotion will prevent your skin from losing the humidity throughout the day. This will also help the whitening agent (alpha arbutin) to be better absorbed into the skin and staying there, doing its job. So far, I haven't felt a lot of the whitening effect itself but my complexion is brighter and plump, which makes it look fresher and younger. For true whitening effects I believe you need to use it for at least one month - meaning, at least one skin cycle. The top layer of your skin gradually sheds for a new layer, this whole process is your skin cycle and it takes around 30 days, so to see results from skincare you need to have a bit of patience.
