Beauty Review : Vaseline Instant Fair Whitening Lotion

As mentioned on my Facebook page a few weeks back, I recently purchased another whitening lotion – Vaseline Instant Fair Whitening Lotion and today, I’ll be offering my honest reviews on it!

I was currently using Nivea Extra Whitening Cell Repair Protect Body Milk as well as the Night Whitening Body Milk only before deciding to try Vaseline.

This review would solely be based on the Vaseline Instant Fair Whitening Lotion and in my next related post, I’ll review both Vaseline and Nivea, striking a comparison between both!

So looks like this :

Anyway, mine looks slightly different – ‘instant’ instead of ‘insta’ – and I have no idea why?

Got mine from Watsons though.

The colour is pink – which I personally think is abit gross? LOL

Here are the pros and cons :

Pros

  1. I’m not too sure if it does help to lighten generally and gradually but I do see a tinge of lighter shade after applying – well, it’s ‘instant fair’ isn’t it? But not as exaggerating as the pic above shows.
  2. Not oily and doesn’t leave any residue thereafter
  3. Fragrant smell – not overwhelming
  4. Absorbs rather fast and well

Cons

  1. Gross pink colour? LOL
  2. I realised that after awhile, like when I apply in the morning, my skin tends to get dry in the afternoon or by evening time which is obvious because I can see dry skin attempting to flake. I think it must be caused by this lotion because I don’t have dry, itchy or sensitive skin to begin with and secondly, I have never encountered this problem with Nivea lotions before.

Sponsored Beauty Review – Secret Key Snow White Princess Cream

A continuation of Secret Key products left off from my exploration of the White Pearl Illuminating series yesterday, today I’d tried Secret Key’s Snow White Princess Cream sponsored by Secret Key seller in Gmarket/Qoo10 🙂

I am more satisfied with this princess cream and I think it’s an awesome idea with regards to its product name. Kinda paints a beautiful and dainty picture of achieving snow white skin – fair, smooth and supple, and transforming yourself into a princessy look! 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Raves

  1. It does help to whiten
  2. Affordable price
  3. Does not leave any white residue – that is if you don’t apply too much and have to blend carefully and properly, especially if you are using this as a make up base/primer. For me, I will just stick to using it as a cream/moisturiser.
  4. Non sticky (I used the Secret Key White Pearl Illuminating Essence before I applied the cream)
  5. Skin feels soft and supple
  6. Smells great – powdery fragrance
  7. Can be applied on neck and body parts as well, if you’d like
  8. Pretty packaging and product name!

Rants

  1. As always, I prefer bottled creams with nozzle sprays as it’s less messy and more convenient’
  2. Comes with spatula, can be advantageous to those who utilise it but I don’t. Prefer using my fingers.
  3. Must blend and apply evenly to prevent white residue.
