The new formula of the Intensive White Serum contains Alpha-Arbutin, an whitening ingredient which is 9 times more powerful than Beta-Arbutin, a common ingredient found in several other brands of whitening products.
The 4X Intensive White Serum is rather thick in texture, almost like a lotion. For a serum, it’s rather rich so I tend to go easy on it and use it sparingly. It’s very moisturizing so I actually use it as a night moisturizer. I also recommend this product for those with mature skin as it might be too rich for those in their early or mid twenties.
This serum is 4 times the whitening effect because it contains 4 ‘whitening agents’ – Tanaka Extract, alpha-Arbutin, Kojic Acid and Tranexamic Acid.
This extract comes from the Tanaka tree bark that helps the plant to block out harmful UV rays and external pollutants. It also has excellent deep nourishing and hydrating properties to reduce free radical damage in the skin.
It comes from the fermentation process of making sake. It has antibacterial and antifungal properties that effectively lightens freckles and pigmentations and evens skin tone.
Tranexamic Acid is a whitening agent which inhibits the production of melanin, thus effectively preventing blemishes and formation of dark spots beneath the skin.
It can be a little hard to dispense the product from the dropper because the serum is too thick. It would be better it is packaged in a small bottle equipped with a pump.
Like the intensive white serum, the product formula for this day cream is also rather thick. A little product is all you will need to help maintain fairness in your skin. Warm up the product with your hands and make sure you apply this product onto your skin till the product is fully absorbed by your skin.
I don’t think I have ever come across such a skin whitening product found in our local drugstores that is enriched with several intensive whitening ingredients. If I am already fair, then using this product might make me look as white as a sheet of paper. Wouldn’t it?
