Review: philosophy Brighten My Day skincare

Our skin is also like us, it changes through the years and according to our environment and current lifestyle. Therefore the skincare that we are using for the past years or currently using may not be suitable or it may not work as effective as it used to be. So we need to do a skin analysis or skin check to have a more accurate understanding of our skin conditions and also know what our skin really needs. It's like our body, we need medical check-up every year too. What do you think? Am I right? 

Review: philosophy Brighten My Day skincare

Usually, I am very careful when comes to whitening products because most whitening skincare it's very drying. It could jeopardize my dry skin conditions. However, like most Asian women I will never give up trying to be fairer. I will constantly search for a whitening product that is gentle and not drying for my skin. Just look through my essay on this topic.

A few weeks ago, I started to use philosophy Brighten My Day skincare range which consists of the all-over skin perfecting brightening lotion, essence and also the innovative expert dark spot & pore whitening peel pen. Can you guess which is my favourite product?

Philosophy introduces brighten my day, the ultimate solution designed not only to diminish dark spots but also redness and pores, all the troubling skin imperfections that take the focus away from your ideal skin.

It helps to brighten my skin in a mild and gradual way. I used these 3 products for more than 3 weeks only I started to see the results. It does not dry my skin. Philosophy skincare range is very mild, not harsh on the skin, hydrating and also effective in its own way. That is why it takes me a while to review this skincare range. Do not expect immediate results, when u use skincare that can give immediate results you need to think twice is it good for your skin in the long run.

Well, the Brightening Essence is my favourite product among the 3 items. You must be wondering why I do not choose the innovative expert dark spot and pore whitening peel pen. The pen is ok it works but my pigmentations only light by a bit. However, after I use this essence for about a month I can see that my skin conditions improve a lot. 

Overall skin is brighter, less dull and skin tone is more even. The pores also look less visible. I feel it gives me a balanced radiance and refined my skin texture. I don’t look very fair but my skin tone even and glowing. There is no tingling feel, no redness, no skin peeling, no breakout or skin oiliness after using this essence. I am happy to continue to use this essence.

The essence texture is milky white, semi-fluid and easy absorption. Not oily and not sticky. The usage is simple like any essence. After cleansing and applying the brightening lotion or toner, have 2 or 3 drops of the brightening essence on the palm and gently massage on the face and neck then followed by the whitening peel pen and moisturizer. You can use it twice a day, day and night.
