I was hesitant to try this product at first because I thought it would be too rich for my skin based on the look of their product texture which is quite thick, almost like a lotion or serum-type of formula. But thankfully, it suited my skin perfectly and didn’t cause any breakouts though my skin is really prone to breakouts especially whenever I try a new product.
It was such a coincidence that I was facing pigmentation and uneven skin tone issues and here’s a perfect opportunity for me to tackle my skin issues. My pigmentation and uneven skin tone issue is probably due to UV exposure, acne-scarring and dryness in the skin.
For me, I use it as a moisturizing serum and spread it thinly across my whole face. After 3 days of using it, I found that my skin started to feel more hydrated and brighter. However, I suggest that you use it on targeted areas (e.g dark spots) first to see how it works on your skin.
This is perfect for those with dry and uneven tone skin. I am not too sure whether it works in lightening dark spots as it might take a couple of weeks to see its effects but I am really liking the brightening effect on my skin as it makes my skin appears more luminous.
Palmer’s White & Even CBB Cream (Fair/Light) $22.90/30ml
This CBB cream or correcting beauty balm could be use as a lightweight foundation or primer. As mentioned in the product, its coverage is not that strong so foundation or concealer is needed. It just works well in evening out the skin tone to make it appear more uniform under makeup. However, this product is for those with a slightly fairer skin tone as highlighted on the product itself. It contains mineral pigments which doesn’t clog pores but to remove the product itself, you will still need a makeup remover to remove it thoroughly. I myself is not a fan of tinted foundation-base products as I felt that compact powder is sufficient for me to even out the skin tone and it is also easier to remove it from the skin.
Verdict: Recommended to those with skin which is less prone to acne and has very fine pores. This CBB cream will work to even out the skin tone and at the same time protects your skin against sun exposure.
