If you live in Australia, sun damage is almost inevitable. You can apply sunscreen every day, wear a hat, stand in the shade instead of the sun at a party, but those days of incidental (or prolonged) sun exposure from your youth are bound to show up sooner or later.
Thus, my latest raison d’etre is fighting those signs of sun damage. In terms of texture, my skin is in pretty good condition thanks to a fairly meticulous skincare regime that I’m constantly adjusting. However, I have sunspots, freckles, and the odd acne scar that need attention. Luckily all these spots can be covered reasonably well with foundation, but instead of masking my face with makeup, I’d prefer to try and achieve the best skin possible.
I’ve been using Shiseido White Lucent Moisturising Cream as my night moisturiser, and I’ve almost finished the jar. It contains vitamin c and other brightening and retexturising agents. The cream is very emollient, but sinks easily into my skin after a few minutes. It provides great hydration for my increasingly dry skin, and is lightly perfumed, which adds a luxious quality to the whole process. I find that my skin is very soft in the morning, thanks to the vitamin c in the formula.
In terms of brightening, this works. My various spots are all a shade lighter. They haven’t disappeared by any means, but they have certainly faded and improved the uniformity of my skin overall as a result. I even gave a jar of this to a friend of mine along with some other skincare, and even though her daughter made off with the cleanser and exfoliant I gave her, the Shiseido White Lucent Moisturising Cream kept working all on its own. I could see a distinct lessening of the hyperpigmentation on her face, as well as a slightly better skin texture and softening of fine lines.
I purchased Shiseido White Lucent Moisturising Cream from Strawberrynet for AUD $54.50.
