Conclusive Post After 17 Days | Shiseido White Lucent Serum & Brightening Mask

By Blessmybag @blessmybag

I know that the Shiseido White Lucent Challenge, which began with this post here,  was supposed to be a 7-Day one, but I really personally wanted to see what the dynamic duo could do over a longer period.  I used the White Lucent Spot Targeting Serum with the aid of the Brightening Mask for a more realistic 2 weeks ++, a time period in which for me promising skincare products truly begin to kick in. In case you didn’t read my previous post, the serum is meant to “crush” the unwanted melanin beneath the skin surface and the mask is meant to “eject” it.

I used up both brightening masks in the first week and then continued with the serum once to twice daily (more often twice).  Here are the results, see for yourself.  Sorry about the slight difference in angle and lighting (there were a few more clouds on Feb 10).  I made sure both shots were taken between 8 and 9am in the morning with the same camera shutter speed and I did my best to color balance just so the lighting was even and results are as close to reality as possible.

First off, I have to point out that the top little dark spot and the ones near my nose and jaw are moles, not freckles or blemish marks so the serum would certainly not fade them out.  What is completely obvious when you first view these images is the overall improvement of my skin’s health seen in the supple skin surface and less oiliness along the T-zone.  You will also see a slight  increase in fairness that isn’t unnatural, less patchiness and redness over my sensitive areas, and my pores have diminished not just in appearance but in actual physical size.  I actually don’t feel my pores on my nose now.  If you look closer the pigmentation marks between the moles I mentioned may not have disappeared completely but they’ve faded noticeably.  I’m actually excited to see what happens after 4 weeks, a whole month.

What I love about the serum is it didn’t have any side effects and didn’t irritate my skin at all.  No sting, just whopping good skincare that sinks in so quickly.  The serum at this 1 oz. size costs about Php5100 when converted from the Sephora price of USD $125.  It’s available from local counters here and the price shouldn’t vary that much from Sephora retail.  So what do you think, having seen the results for yourselves do you want to try this and see for yourselves?  If you’re gutted by the price there’s actually a limited edition .5 oz travel size serum bottle available from Sephora.  If you can’t afford the regular sizes of the serum perhaps someone you know with access to Sephora can get the .5 oz one for you.  Like Shiseido PH on Facebook to get more updates and information regarding the launch of Shiseido White Lucent skincare!  Am not completely sure if that special size is available via our local Shiseido counters, it’s worth checking out :)   By the way if you haven’t joined my special Shiseido giveaway that ends tomorrow, go to this link here!
