Dark spots? Pimples? Allergies? No problem!
Let me introduce to you the products that I've been crazy about:
SkinBeautanicals Arbutin Facial Set:
The best skin regimen for skin whitening that gently removes dead skin cells, revitalizes and renews with this skin balancing formula.
SkinBeautanicals Organic Arbutin Set comes in a cute eco-friendly gift packaging. It originally includes the Arbutin Toner, Arbutin Giga White Day Cream, and Intensive Whitening Night Cream; but Ms. Roxanne Nieto was very kind enough to add a Snail Soap and a Rejuvederm Sun Protection SPF60 for me to try as well! I feel so grateful!
I've been using this since the last week of March this year until now. After one day of using it, my pimples have dried immediately! Wow as in that fast! I haven't tried anything with immediate results like this before! Even the pimple marks have lightened dramatically. I wasn't able to take a "before" picture of me with a big pimple on my nose because just after 2 days of using the set, it dried up completely and the dark mark has already lightened it that it isn't that obvious anymore! My face has this bright glow even if my skin is not as fair as before due to sunbathing and swimming activities when I went to the beach last Holy Week, but still, I notice the gradual lightening effects. So in terms of whitening, it's effective!
The Snail Soap makes my face feel squeaky clean yet moisturized at the same time. No dryness, no stingy feel. It helps in drying up pimples and lessening the skin's oiliness. The soap melts fast if you left it wet and soaking even in a little amount of water but if you are able to take good care of it, it will last for up to 2 months and a half given that you use this only on your face day and night. It retails for Php300 and I can say that the price is worth it!
The Arbutin Toner feels like water but it effectively removes dirt and other impurities. It is gentle enough to be used even by the most sensitive skin because it does not sting unlike other derma-formulated toners. It also aids in lessening oil production and flattening pimples.
The Gigawhite Day Cream & Intensive Whitening Night Cream both moisturizes well without the oily and greasy feeling. The consistency is rich yet they can be easily absorbed by the skin. I like the fact that the day cream has SPF already so there's no need to put on more products for protection! The Night Cream's color is light green but when you apply it on the face, it blends well into your skin tone making it look like you have a primer on while correcting uneven skin tone gradually with each use.
The Rejuvederm Sun Protection w/ SPF60 is like a BB cream that can be used as a good primer. Perfect for all skin types I must say because it does not cake and has a medium coverage that can conceal semi-dark blemishes. It also blends with my skin tone well. I usually use this alone when I go out to run errands with only a lip/cheek tint for a natural look para blooming pa rin and hindi haggard. For those who have oily skin, it is advisable to put on a loose powder to set the bb cream and mattify the skin.
Therefore, in my usage of 2 months and a half, I can say that it helped in maintaining the good condition of my facial skin. I rarely get pimples now (only when it's that time of the month or when I mistakenly fall asleep without washing my face and removing all of my makeup). In terms of whitening, the effect is gradual. It is able to lighten pimple marks yet some of what I've had before are still here but it is very blurry now and the marks left behind are no longer that obvious and can easily be covered with concealer. I have never experienced any allergic reaction with this set so yay for that!
This set can last up to 2-3months depending on how much product you use up. In my case, although this set worked greatly for me, I have noticed that after 2 months, my face slowly became immune to this set like my new pimple marks do not lighten as fast as before anymore. So I guess, I might have to change products for the mean time and resume on using this after a month or two. I know that I can always go back to using this set in case anything goes wrong or when breakouts start popping up!
All-in-all, I can still recommend this to anyone who have sensitive skin and to those who wish to lighten the facial dark spots left by acne. Always remember though that the effects of skin products on each of us might differ so it is advisable to use a patch test on your jawline first. If irritation occurs, discontinue use. But if none, then go ahead, enjoy the benefits of this awesome Arbutin set and hopefully it will give you great results as well like it did on mine!
