Elizabeth Arden Sheer White Pure Intensive Skin Lightening Serum Review
whitening night serum
The product I am going to review today is . I bought samples which come in 4ml-pump bottles. I am so in love with this product. I live in Asia and I travel mostly on bike. So, at the end of the day , I get lots of tan and my skin gets all dry due to the pollution. I felt I needed something additional to keep my skin sane. A sales woman has recommended this product to me and so I ended up buying this and I am glad I did . Elizabeth Arden Sheer White Pure Intensive Serum/ Capsules
In Asia, women are more of NC30-40ish skin tone. And we tend to get tanned as well which makes it even worse. So, its important to use skin care products that help you maintain your NATURAL skin tone. I said natural because, this product doesn’t make you NC15-ish , it helps you maintain your NC 30 skin tone with lesser dark spots and pigmentation.
So, what does it contain?
"Cyclopentasiloxane,dimethicone/vinyl dimethicone,crosspolymer,ascorbic acid, morus nigra fruit extract,saxifrage sarmentosa extract,scutellaria baicalensis root extract,vitis vinifera(grape) fruit extract,butylenes glycol, acacia Senegal gum, disodium EDTA, cyclohexasiloxane"
Vitamin C /Ascorbic acid- is natural antioxidant and helps lighten the skin tone.
Grape Seed extracts – It is rich in Vitamin E,flavinoids . it is also an anti-oxidant ,helps refining the skin
Many of the skin whitening products that are being sold , are usually bleaching agents and contain harmful carcinogenic chemicals. I've researched about these ingredients on the internet and they all seemed safe to use !! wow!!
Packaging: I actually bought samples from a local beauty store. I heard that the bigger product contains serum in capsules. I’ll post a picture of it down below. I bought 7 samples for like 17$ something (I don’t remember). But the actual price is around 99$ . You can get it at a cheaper price in amazon, I guess.
Product: It is golden yellowish in color with caramel smell. It is little bit oily in consistency, but it dries out as soon as you apply on the skin . I use at before going to bed, after cleansing my face. I apply two pumps of it ( I mean the sample) and after it dries out, I follow with a night cream ( just a teeny tiny amount).
RESULTS: I used it religiously for 4 weeks or so. I could see the result within 3-4 days. My complexion has become brighter, skin has become softer and the pigmentation faded a bit. When i stop using it, i get my usual tan.
Overall, I love this product. I would buy it again. The downfall is that it is pricey ,but I think it is totally worth the money. It is not a bleaching agent (unlike many skin whitening products out there), it is rich in antioxidants and natural products, it is actually showing the result . I am absolutely positive about getting the bigger bottle!
So, have you used this product? If you know any better night serums that fit into skin whitening routine, do share !! :-)
