Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Archive for October 14th, 2010


Photo-White-C Whitening Lotion is part of the medicated whitening series from Dr.Ci:Labo Japan. It made by nano-technology to promote deep penetration of ingredients. It contains various Vitamin C derivatives and plant extracts for anti-oxidizing, hydrating and suppressing melanin production.



It has natural citrus scent, which is very pleasant. As you can see, the consistency is slightly yellowish and viscous, in fact, if you have healthy oily skin and have no special quest for brightening, you may take this for both brightening lotion and hydrating essence.



Due to the easily spreadable consistency, using hand for application is more economical and only small amount is already enough for face and neck. No matter how much quantity applied on, my skin just drink it up easily with little fingers-massage, leaving hydrated skin and no sticky/heavy feeling. However, as it contains gel ingredient to create the viscous texture, it would pill if I over-applied (3~4 applications at one time).



It is also ideal for occasional lotion-mask pampering, either using with Kose lotion-mask or Muji large cotton pad. Again, the citrus scent makes me feel relax and delighting, big satisfaction with the quick hydration but unfortunately, too costly.


—* Lotion-mask *—

 Pouring adequate lotion into cap, soak the mask pill in the lotion

The dry mask pill drinks up the lotion quickly.

Unfold the mask sheet and place onto face for ~5 minutes.


I preferred using cotton pad actually. Just pour the lotion directly on the cotton pad and tear the pad to few layers. Place onto face for ~5 minutes.


This is a whitening product so I must talk about its effectiveness here. I am not certain if it really brightens or whitens my complexion during these four months since I have fair skin to start with, but I did notice the freckles and mild melasma were much less apparent. Frequent cloudy and rainy weather most probably is the main factor that attributed to the improvement.



As a conclusion, I am a happy user of this gentle and affordable lotion (RM136 or SGD59/150ml). I was using it together with Dr.Ci:Labo Aqua-In-Derm DN-Essence, either one of them is already enough for my skin care routine. As such, I would re-purchase this only if I have no budget to continue with the Aqua-In-Derm DN-Essence.


Rating: ….)))     Excellent. Willing to buy again.
