SANA Namerakahonpo Soy Milk Whitening Gel – Review

Here’s a review of a product from a popular Japanese brand, Sana.  The formula includes a blend of moisturising and brightening ingredients: two actives, arbutin and liquorice extract, which are well-known to help with hyperpigmentation.

It’s skin Power 10 Formula WH EFFECTOR – Review

The It’s skin Power 10 serums have been on the market for ages, but only recently they have gained popularity.  The formula of this product is a hybrid of hydrating and brightening ingredients. The hydrating ones are good, old glycerine and the increasingly sought-after polyglutamic acid.

Cetaphil Night Moisturizer for Redness Prone Skin / Pro Moisturising Night Cream – Review

Shiseido Future Solution LX Concentrated Balancing Softener – Review

I know I always say in my reviews that I wouldn’t bother using toners which require cotton pads unless they include exfoliating acids, but this product is different – it isn’t just a toner. This toner, or softener as such products are called in Japan, contains an interesting mix of ingredients. There are many components… Read More Shiseido Future Solution LX Concentrated Balancing Softener – Review

SkinCeuticals Advanced Brightening UV Defense SPF 50 – Review

In my last review of Skinceuticals’ serum, I said that I wasn’t planning to review more products from this brand this year, but I hadn’t had any idea they would release such an exciting product.  This sunscreen contains a mix of titanium dioxide and chemical filters including L’Oréal’s proprietary Mexoryl XL. The formula also includes… Read More SkinCeuticals Advanced Brightening UV Defense SPF 50 – Review
