Tried out the White Pearl Illuminating series products today! 🙂

 

 

This series consists of :

White Pearl Illuminating Skin Booster

 

 

 

White Pearl Illuminating Essence

 

 

White Pearl Illuminating Cream

 

Initially, I was a little confused as to the sequence of the products usage, because I’d thought booster is something similar to essence and I’m quite sure they are meant to be used together in 1 skin care regime, 1 after another.

So after cleansing my face and applying toner, I applied the skin booster followed by the essence and lastly, the cream. I hope this sequence is correct though.

Nevertheless, here are my reviews and ratings.

Skin booster :

Raves

  1. It’s differs from the essence as it is made up of thick liquid
  2. Absorbs well into the skin
  3. Doesn’t leave any white residue

Rants 

  1. It’s a tad too thick and sticky for my skin type
  2. Bottle is made of glass
  3. Difficult to pour it out as it doesn’t have a nozzle spray

Essence :

Raves

  1. Lighter than booster and feels light on skin
  2. Easy to carry around and hold as bottle is much smaller than booster’s
  3. Nozzle spray allows easier usage
  4. Not sticky, doesn’t leave any white residue

Rants

None at the moment

Cream :

Raves

  1. Small open bottle, easy to carry around. Perfect for travelling.
  2. Doesn’t leave any white residue

Rants

  1. Kinda too creamy

Overall review : It’s a little too oily for me, perhaps I would try them out separately in the future. Too much stuffs applied on my face. Feels ‘heavy’ on my face. But face looks clarified. Whitening effect not instant so I guess the products must be applied consistently. For those with combination or oily skin type, you may wanna reduce or use them separately, as in if you use the booster, maybe you can just apply the essence. Or if you apply the cream, skip the booster, because these 2 are the thickest liquids of all and logically, richest as well.

Overall rating :

Beauty Reviews – Shiseido White Lucent Anti-dark Circles Eye Cream

Bought some skincare products online at a real steal!

Mentioned about the highly raved Shiseido White Lucent Anti-dark Circles Eye Cream and yes I went to get 1 for myself. My dark circles are quite bad IMO due to those late nights of mugging, partying and lack of rest now that I’ve entered the workforce. Sleep and rest is never enough, especially when you are working. I’m quite sure everyone would agree with me 😦

Of course, don’t expect any skincare product to contain any magical effect which would produce immediate effect. Changes that place gradually and so do these products 🙂 Unless you are telling me that you can vouch for such products?! Then well, please do share! HAHA 😀

I’ve received my parcel on Wednesday and used the eye cream at night. It has some nice scent and the cream looks pearly white – a very appealing colour to women. Also, I find the packaging of the white lucent range extremely captivating – pearly white and pink. ❤ 🙂

Yes, I’m a little disappointed over the packaging of the parcel. Not professional at all despite being an online shop and not some blogshops. 😦

Yes I’ve gotten Kose skincare products as well and I’m not sure how come the free leather pouch is from Lancome instead of Kose? LOL.

I find the cream definitely richer than those gel and of course, heavier weight than them. So far, no milia seeds whatsoever. I’ve not had them before anyway, so I guess it’s quite safe for me to experience new products. Plus, I don’t have sensitive skin 🙂 And I’m thankful for that 😀

I got it at around $62 whilst it retails at around $80 for just a small bottle of 15ml.

Remember to use your ring finger when applying any creams/gels or any cosmetics (e.g. concealer) because it has limited strength compared to all the other fingers. This is because the skin around your eyes, especially the lids, are the thinnest amongst the other body areas, hence you should take extra pre-caution when applying anything around the eye areas. Try to be as gentle as possible.

I’ve got to confess that sometimes I tend to forget as well because we are too reliant on our other master fingers such as the pointer and middle finger, but well, for the sake of your beauty, try using the ring finger, alright? 🙂

Shall update this space again on its effects 🙂

I pray hard that this shall be my holy grail for my dark circles… 😦
