Starting the 7-Day Shiseido White Lucent Challenge

I wasn’t supposed to do this but considering how much it is priced, a before and after post is in order. A 30 ml. bottle costs Php 5,650 — and with that price tag, I want hard evidence that it works.

I’m lucky to get a sample for free (save for shipping fee) coz I’m one hundred percent sure I won’t buy this even if I end up liking it.  Sorry Shiseido (but I do repurchase some of your other products).

Shiseido and Sample Room gave out samples of the power brightening mask and 9ml bottles of the spot targeting serum (if they had this travel-sized bottle for sale, it would cost Php 1,695.)

 
Shiseido White Lucent
Intensive Targeting Serum

If you take a quick look my skin already seems even-toned. My skin has been behaving well the past months and my post-acne pigmentation marks are down to the best it’s had my whole life.

Here’s half of my face right after washing and applying the serum for the first time.

Before
Say hello to my 29.75 year-old face sans makeup.

The serum is supposed to crush melanin to reduce spots and prevent future pigmentation. To be honest, I’m not sure if I’m comfortable with the idea of my melanin getting crushed. I love my brown skin, I just don’t like how uneven it easily gets sometimes.

Here’s my skin upon closer inspection. As you can tell, I don’t have serious dark spots that need major improvement. So I expect that my skin will be perfectly even-toned by the end of 7 days.

Considering that the serum costs more than most chemical peels, I believe that that’s not an unreasonably high expectation.

I’ll see you again in 7 days.

  1. You really are one of the lucky ones who got this! Sampleroom ran out to stock too fast. Let me know if it can get rid of freckles too. I've heard somewhere that you can't really get rid of freckles. Once they're there, they're there forever. Not sure how true though.

    PS
    About the lipstick colors. I've been loving mauve too, which is weird coz mauve is almost a shade of violet right?

  2. Hello Rae, minimal lang yung blemishes mo ha. You have good skin para sakin. Kasi ako madaming freckles add mo pa yung pimple marks. Lucky you, you got the sample. Grabe, nagrestock sila ang bilis naubos in 1 minute lang yata wala na. Excited to see the results on your skin :)

What do you think?
