Skincare Products – Serums & Moisturisers

Shiseido White Lucent Concentrated Brightening Serum, Kanebo Blanchir Whitening Smoothing Conditioner, Estee Lauder Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refresher, Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye

I have also used:

  • HABA White Lady
  • Skinfood Peach Sake Pore Serum
  • Sekkisei Eye Cream
  • Nivea Aqua Sensation Eye Cream
  • Ettusais Acne Whitening Essence

I have not touched the Shiseido Serum yet but it’s for whitening. HABA White Lady is a vitamin C serum and I highly recommend it, minus the fact that it has to be kept in the fridge and can only be kept for 3 months. However, it did lighten some areas so it does work. Moreover, I could always do with some vitamin C. The Ettusais essence is also for whitening, in particular, acne marks. However, I did not see significant results with it.

The Blanchir Whitening Smoothing Conditioner is like a pore serum, so is the Estee Lauder Idealist Serum. They are decent to me, but somehow it didn’t work as well as Skinfood Peach Sake Pore Serum. However, that was way back in 2007 or 2008. When I repurchased the Skinfood serum, I found the texture and effect to be different and lacking.

Nivea’s eye cream works decently too. However, it dried out before I could finish using it. The Sekkisei eye cream was decent as well. A little goes a long way and the 15ml jar lasted for probably more than a year and it didn’t try out. I’m currently using Estee Lauder’s and so far, so good. the texture is more like a serum than a cream and there’s a sensation when applied on. However, the sensation wasn’t as apparent in subsequent applications.

Naruko Tea Tree Oil Out Night Gelly, Naruko Tea Tree Oil Out Balancing Moisturiser, Aqua Label Enhancer WT, Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Protective Moisturiser SPF 16, Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Moisturising Gel, Sekkisei Lotion, Sekkisei Day Essence, Sekkisei Emulsion

I have also used:

· Biotherm Aquasource Non Stop Oglio Thermal Gel

· Ettusais AC Aqua Shooter

Since the Naruko Gelly is a non wash off product it’s as good as a night moisturiser. I like how it’s a gel and not a cream.

The Aqua Label and Ettusais are both effectors rather than moisturisers, and their function is to seal in the moisturiser.

Biotherm Aquasource is the best moisturiser I’ve used and I’ll repurchase it soon.
