More goodies from my favorite brand of skincare/makeup! Yay! This time I received a bottle of 4X Intensive White Serum and a tub of Double Whitening Day Cream.
Tanaka White 4X Intensive White Serum [$45.80/30ml]
Labelled as their star product, this serum is specially blended with traditional and modern ingredients, including 4 of the greatest whitening ingredients: alpha-Arbutin, Tanaka Extract, Kojic Acid and Tranexamic Acid. It targets, combats and treats the causes of dark spots and uneven skin, providing highly intensive whitening and brightening for a luminous, fairer and more radiant skin, with superior whitening effect that can be seen after just 4 days!
- Effectively lightens existing pigments and spots
- Blocks tyrosinase and inhibits the production of melanin to prevent dark spots and reduces darkening after UV exposure
- Evens out skin tone, whitens & brightens complexion
- Moisturizes and cools skin
- Skin exudes radiance, revealing a smooth, fair & healthy-looking complexion.
- Skin’s fairness intensifies for flawless fair skin which glows from within
Struggled a little with the dropper at first, before I finally found out how to use it properly. (Yes you may laugh.) One squeeze is actually enough to cover my entire face and neck. Love this serum. It's light and fragrant, and absorbs so easily into my skin.
Tanaka White Double Whitening Day Cream SPF 20 [$29.80/50ml]
This cream comes with SPF 20, Tanaka Extract and Tranexamic Acid to help suppress excessive production of melanin, protects skin from harmful sunlight and repairs skin for instant fairness from within so that skin glows with crystal clear luminosity. Regain bright and naturally fair skin as it helps repair damaged cells and encourage cell renewal. It is uniquely formulated with Hyaluronic Acid to keep skin hydrated and moisturized, and is lightly textured with a non-greasy formula to facilitate fast absorption. Tanaka Extract helps to keep skin cool.
I don't really like tub containers, so that's a minus one. Texture is not exactly non-greasy, so it leaves a slight shine on my face. At the end of the day my face becomes a little more oily than if I didn't use this cream. Perhaps it suits dry skin more? But I'm glad it has SPF 20. Yay to more sun protection!
Overall, I didn't see much difference personally, despite using it religiously every day. But I went over to my grandma's house about a week after using these, and my aunt commented that my face looks fairer. So I guess it works! ^^v
