Review : Skinz UV White

On 26th December, I went to Ipoh with my aunt and cousins, and I wanted to buy a Hada Labo skincare set. When I inquired about Hada Labo, the Cantonese promoter introduced Skinz UV White to me instead, claiming that it is better suited for Asian skin as it is formulated in Japan and made in Malaysia. When I asked which product was better, she indirectly told me that Skinz is better, so I ended up buying the Skinz UV White set, which includes a Purifying Facial Foam, a Clarifying Toner and an Intensive Night Moisturiser.

SKINZ UV White Purifying Facial Foam
(50g RM8.50), (100g RM14.90)

99% plant-based foaming cleanser
gently cleanses and removes impurities
while retaining your skin’s natural moisture balance.

SKINZ UV White Clarifying Toner
(100ml RM16.90)

A balancing toner that deeply tones and purifies.
Enhanced with Aloe Vera and Licorice active
to soothe and calm your skin to prepare it
for optimum absorption of skin whitening therapy.

SKINZ UV White Intensive Night Moisturiser
(40g RM 33.90)

An intensive night cream enhanced with Alpha-Arbutin
that penetrates deeper to boost the skin’s whitening process as you sleep.

This potent complex provides you with 3 levels of deeper whitening by inhibiting the effects of melanin, creating a lighter skin tone. It then diffuses deeper into the heart of skin cells to protect DNA from UV damage, reducing hyper pigmentation and dark spots. And finally, it provides you with double UVA/UVB filter coverage to protect your skin from further sun damage.

Activate your inner radiance now and see visibly radiant,
glowing luminosity in just 2 weeks*.
*visible results within 2 weeks with regular application of complete range.

I've been using these products for 5 days, and though there aren't any visible results yet, but overall I'm satisfied with the products. The SKINZ UV White Purifying Facial Foam's cleansing properties are strong and the oil on the surface of my skin is removed completely. This comes with a disadvantage, though: it cleanses too well and dries up my skin.

The SKINZ UV White Clarifying Toner is a transparent liquid which has a cool feeling to it. According to the description, this product contains Aloe Vera and Licorice active which restores your skin’s optimum pH balance for a hydrated, fresh sensation. And true to its words, it really gives me a fresh feel after applying a small amount on my skin.

My favourite product in this set would be the SKINZ UV White Intensive Night Moisturiser. This product has a smooth texture and does not leave any oily residue as most moisturisers. Instead, it is absorbed by the skin almost instantly, leaving my skin soft to the touch.

I'll be using this skincare range for a longer period of time and observe its function. Let's see if my skin becomes radiant and glowing in 2 weeks time, as mentioned in the website!

I love these products! Im using skinz clarifying toner, skinz intensive whitening serum and skinz instant radiance rinse off mask :) after about i week of usage my skin turned fairer and brighter ( for real! ) !!! Moreover, my skin turned pinky radiance instantly after applying the serum, i think it was due to the sakura extract :) falling in love with them !! ;)

I use the clarifying toner, the serum ,the eye brightening essence and the rinse off face mask for 2 months already, ( since 27/1/14 ), overall my mom said that my skin has turned fairer and even tone, but i didnt feel anything, my skin has even out its tone but not the fairness ( i have tanned skin, a chinese girl 15 years old ). Im so disappointed about the result, although my skin has become more radiant but not fairer...... I will continue use this product until i finish the " back up" ones, ( i bought a lot of skinz product as there were a 50% discount at watsons for skinz uv white!!! I believe the discount is still available at all outlets now ) im planning to use loreal paris white perfect laser essence which is more expensive and effective than this product...

Dear anonymous, great to hear that it works magic on your skin!

Dear Adelene, perhaps different people have different reaction to the products. While there's no significant fairness when I used them, my skin definitely felt smoother. I've now switched to using other products, as I prefer testing different brands.
