Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Archive for April 9th, 2010


While I thought Lancôme Blanc Expert cleanser is far less drying than normal whitening cleanser, obviously I did not try enough. The Extra Brightening Gentle Cleanser is part of Estee Lauder Asia exclusive Cyber White EX series. Based on what I have tried from the series, the cream and the mask, they are moisturizing and far gentler than what I expected.



I bought this in 30ml sample size, which is cheaper than its actual retail price, THB1300/125ml. In fact, I have been trying few whitening cleansers recently, none of them actually shown justifiable lightening/brightening result, may be they did but I never bothered. I am just asking for a pleasant cleanser.



The soft creamy content is metallic looking, florally scented and foam up moderately. Besides skin has short moment mild tackiness right after cleansing, it is non-drying and the creamy soft lather is feeling gentle on skin also. By the time I want to dab on the lotion, skin already become smooth and non-tacky.



Because of the gentleness, it did not remove makeup. I suggest this for morning cleansing with no makeup on, or in the evening for second cleansing if you trust your makeup remover enough.

Overall I think this is nice to use without stripping skin natural protective lipid, but of course, there is always an exception if you are using warm water for facial wash. Probably oily skin will not fond of this, as well as those who prefer refreshing after-wash feeling. I am fussy, I want both refreshing and gentleness and I know there are better options out there. Moreover, I am picky about fragrance too.
