I wasn’t supposed to do this but considering how much it’s priced, I need to see a before-and-after. One 30 ml bottle costs Php 5,650 — with that price tag, I want to see a significant change on the evenness of my skin.

Shiseido and Sample Room gave out samples of the Power Brightening Mask as well as 9ml bottles of the Spot Targeting Serum (proportionately, it would cost Php 1,695.)

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.

The serum is supposed to crush melanin to reduce spots and prevent future pigmentation. To be honest, I’m not sure I’m comfortable with the idea of my melanin getting crushed. I’m fine with my skintone, I just need it to be even.

I don’t have serious dark spots that need major improvement. So I expect that my skin will be significantly more even-toned by the end of 7 days.

Considering that the serum costs more than most chemical peels, this serum better deliver.

I’ll see you again in 7 days.

    Can't wait for the update on the results on you sis! :-)


    Thank you soo much Rae for always being appreciative and being such a keen-observer :)

  2. That reminds me, I should make an entry on how I got my skin clear.

  3. I know! And I just was at the site at the right time, I wasn't one of those who really waited for it.

  4. 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.

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

    Whew, pricey. If I add a bit more, I can get laser skin resurfacing treatment.

    Your skin is clear! I'm afraid you won't see much difference.

  6. Compared to mine, your skin is pretty much in the clear side. Can't wait to see the results later! :)

  7. 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 :)

  8. You have great skin! I'm not sure this serum will do anything for you haha
