It’s the annual whitening season again and this year, I would like to share information on different skincare ranges from Kiehl’s, Lancôme and La Mer which aim to brighten your skintone and combat dark spots.

Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective White Range

This is relaunch of the brand’s previous whitening range known as “Ultimate White”. This new range aims to promote luminance and clarity, as well as fight deep-set dark spots without over drying your skin.

Key Ingredients: White Birch, Peony Extracts and Activated C, which is a Vitamin C derivative which breaks apart discolorations and prevents the formation of new pigment clusters.

Star Product: Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution (50ml, S$90)

This serum has been clinically demonstrated to be able to diminish the intensity of dark spots by 26.7%, reduce overall hyperpigmentation by 34.3% and improve radiance by 18.6% in 8 weeks.

Other Comments: I have been using the Purifying Foaming Cleanser (S$45) for a few weeks now and really like the foamy texture and the lovely lavender scent (from the lavender oil in the product).

If you are keen to try the range, especially the Dark Spot Solution, simply visit Kiehl’s SG Facebook and register your details. You will receive an SMS certificate which not only entitles you to the samples after a skincare consultation, but also gives you a chance to win a product hamper.

Lancôme Blanc Expert

This extensive range is not exactly new, although there are new offering added to the lineup this year.

Key Ingredients: Dermactyl Complex consolidated from Soy, Sunflower, Mint and Rose extracts; this concoction helps to brighten the dermis to skin surface, and prefer the skin from getting dull. Actyl P, a whitening agent that targets the epidermis level to regulate pigmentation.

Star Product: Blanc Expert Derm-Crystal (30ml, S$175)

According to clinical assessment, after 8 weeks, this products increase skin transparency by 19%, skin brightness by 22T and the colour contrast between spot and spotless areas is reduced by 30%.

Other Comments: I have not used products from this range yet, hence I can’t comment on the effectiveness or usage experience. The Derm-Crystal is a transparent gel-like liquid with a rose scent. I spotted rose extract in the ingredients list, as well as salicylic acid which is known to reduce spots and acne.

Additionally, the Whiteness Activating Spot Eraser is a best seller in the range and has received many good reviews from beauty bloggers on its capability to reduce stubborn spots within a short period of time.

Blanc de La Mer

If you are a believer of the Miracle Broth from La Mer, the Blanc de La Mer range not only contain this important ingredient, but also aims to stop hyper-pigmentation, lift dullness and hydrate deeply.

Key Ingredients: The famed Miracle Broth, as well as Smoothing Ferment, Whitening Trio and Youth Ferment. Smoothing Ferment helps the skin to look clearer, finer and reduces pores with an active brown algae known as Laminaria Saccharina. Whitening Trio, which contain concentrated white algae Ferment, helps to dissolve the melanin clusters and prevent future discoloration. Youth Ferment, as the name suggests, provide anti-aging benefits.

Star Product: Blanc de La Mer Whitening Essence Intense (30ml, S$445)

Other Comments: This newly launched serum sounds like a good all-in-one that helps to brighten your skin tone, heel redness and irritations, hydrates and provide anti-aging benefits. For those who are interested to find out more about this product – unfortunately I have not had the chance to test this power serum – this range is exclusively available at Tangs Orchard.

Closing Words

So, feel free to ask questions and I will try my best to respond.
