To be honest I have seen the new Neutrogena Clinical Fine Fairness Whitening Series selling in Guardian Pharmacy 2 weeks ago when I was out buying dinner due to a long day at work. I pop into Guardian with my colleague and straight away I went to the display stand and took the tester bottle for the Radiance Essence to give it a try. I was impressed with my first try of the essence as the texture was smooth and it smells great! Not to mention it provides a sheer glow on my skin. Unfortunately due to the lack of time, I decided that I will find out more about the product again another day. To my surprise, the Sample Store later came to me with a proposed review of the product and of cos I am so glad to accept the offer.
Basically I am all out for fair and smooth skin as I really envy those ladies with good skin condition. As a matter of fact, I have oily combination skin and big pores have always been my concern too. I am always in search for a better product to help improve my skin condition not to mention reducing my blemishes and pimple marks too. What attracted me to this product is the caption that says “1 Bottle Tackles 1 Year Stubborn Spots”. Wow that must be quite a bold claim or a daring marketing strategy to claim that the product works to such efficiency. Another thing that caught my eyes is the breakthrough technology used by Neutrogena in the product which is called the VITAL-IONS and Lily Nectar. This technology helps to lighten even the most persistent spots and blemishes. VITAL-IONSTM technology contains zinc and copper minerals that can help boost energy supply to the skin cells as a catalyst to revitalise the skin’s cellular renewal process to quickly disperse the accumulated melanin. Lily Nectar, which comprises of White Lily extracts and stabilized Vitamin C, inhibits melanin formation by blocking the skin’s ‘melanin production’ signals, which are normally activated when the skin is overexposed to the sun’s UV rays.
So I have to try it out for myself to see if the claims are true. As of all beauty products, you need to use it consistently for 2 months to see the results. After 1 week of testing, I find that there is a slight improvement on my skin and I can see my face being more radiance and not dull as compared to before. Same as what I tested at Guardian, the texture of the essence is smooth and light. The smell is nice, light as the flower Lily and there are no allergies whatsoever. No itchiness on the skin and the Radiance Essence absorbs very fast into the skin and gives that sheer glow of radiance. It looks like you are shining from the inside.
The pump is unique as it is in a rectangular shape. They call it the Double Chamber Pump. I find it awkward at first to pump out the Radiance Essence but after a few use, I am getting used to it. I find that perhaps having a normal round pump may be easier but that is conventional. Perhaps the Double Chamber Pump helps to keep bacteria out of the product due to its unique pump system.
As you can see my before and after pictures (no edit) with use of the Radiance Essence, there is really a difference. The after feel is also pleasant with no oiliness at all which is good for my oily combination skin. I like it on its own as a makeup base too. No need to worry about dull skin anymore. At the same time, it generates its’ magic to improve and lighten your spots and blemishes. This is like killing 2 birds with 1 stone! I will continue to use this product and get another one for my mom too as she want to lighten her spots as well.
Next we have the Neutrogena Clinical Fine Fairness Radiance Cream. I am not a fan of moisturizing creams as most of them gave me oil bumps due to the richness of the cream in nature. I was kinda skeptical on this one because I do not want to have more oil bumps/ milia seeds on my face. On the other hand, I believe in trying the product at least 2 times to give it a chance. So I used the Radiance Cream after the Radiance Essence but I only apply a thin layer of the cream just in case my skin couldn’t take it.
Thanks to my lucky stars, this product is suitable for me! Woohoo! The Neutrogena Clinical Fine Fairness Radiance Cream is not oily and it is light and suitable for my oily combination skin. It contains a non-oily formula also infused with VITAL-IONS and Lily Nectar as their signature ingredients in the product. The Radiance Cream helps to renew the skin at night and also brightens the skin, so that you gradually become fairer and more radiant. I use the Radiance Cream after the Radiance Essence and just lightly pat the cream on my face and not rubbing it in. It is a good complement to go with the Radiance Essence for your night routine.
Lastly we have the Neutrogena Clinical Fine Fairness Multi-Protect UV Fluid SPF50+/PA+++. This is an important product to have for sun protection. I use it as my sunscreen during the day time. A minimum of SPF 50 is a must in Singapore hot sunny weather. I do not want any additional sunspots and pigmentations on my face from now on. To my surprise, the Multi-Protect UV Fluid is in purple tint! No more white ghastly cast on my face. The purple tinted formula creates a fairer complexion and make my face look brighter too. This sunscreen is also very light on the skin as it is not sticky and absorbs well. Same as the rest of the products, it smells so good!
Formulated with Neutrogena’s patented HelioplexTM technology as well as the clinical strength whitening ingredients of VITAL-IONSTM and Lily Nectar, it serves the dual purpose of broad-spectrum protection from harmful UVA/UVB rays and cell revitalisation for renewed radiance. HelioplexTM has been clinically proven to deliver one of the best forms of protection under extreme sun conditions, shielding skin against cellular damage and premature aging that cause fine lines, sagging skin, wrinkles and dark spots.
I am so glad that I have a new choice of skin care to go to once I run out of them. I can see some improvement on my skin just in 1 week. I believe my skin will get better with consistent use and hopefully all the stubborn spots will lighten gradually in time.
