Albion EXCIA Whitening Premium Range


Albion Excia Whitening

Received this Albion EXCIA W Premium Coffret quite a while ago, didn’t get to blog about it sooner. This coffret comprises of EXCIA Circulating Watery Cleansing Cream, EXCIA Circulating Essence Foam, Whitening Extra Rich Milk SV, Whitening Lotion SV and Whitening External Stem Nova Cream.

Upon checking the items, my usual next move was to check out the ingredients. Spotted alcohol on all of the products. It’s one of the ingredients I’m not really comfortable with. The alcohol scent is dull even though it is listed under one of the top five ingredients (for three of them).

Alcohol is claimed to help other ingredients such as vitamin C penetrate our skin more effectively. EXCIA Whitening External Stem Nova Cream actually contains Ascorbyl Glucoside. It is known as a form of vitamin C that has the antioxidant or skin-lightening properties.

Alcohol is good for the product, but maybe bad for our skin. Probably, we might expect dry, irritated skin if we use a cosmetic product with alcohol.

I noticed many of my peers love using skincare products that contain alcohol, one of their favorites is Lancome Genifique. They seem to have no issue with it so far.

Create A Crystal-Clear Skin With Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Solution


Two weeks ago, I have actually shared a post on the newly launched Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective White range. This new collection is now available at Kiehl’s stores from February 2012. Click here to read the previous post.

This latest breakthrough whitening skincare range is specially developed to help eliminate dark spots, improve skin clarity and provide a brighter, crystal-clear complexion. Thanks to its latest Activated C formulation which is 100% active on skin immediately to rapidly correct dark spots, discolorations and uneven skin tone in as little as 8 weeks.

What do Asian women today want for perfect skin? Other than having firm and wrinkle-free skin, most Asian women actually desire a more brighter, translucent, luminous and spotless complexion, as though the skin has been ‘air-brushed’.

So what is ‘air-brushed’ complexion seem to you? Don’t get me wrong as I’m not referring to air-brush makeup but I’m actually referring to a spotless, bright and crystal-clear complexion. Unfortunately, many women and even celebrities rely on digital retouching (photoshop) or even makeup tricks to get that flawless complexion! Sad to say these magical touches are just temporary and they are not the ‘real’ skin!

So why depend on these temporary coverage tricks to conceal your faults when you can actually achieve a beautiful, smooth and naturally flawless skin with the correct use of skincare products?

Makeup will only look as good as the skin underneath it!

Loss of translucency, alongside dark spots, discoloration and uneven skin tone, is consistently cited by Asian women as their major skincare concerns. These skin problems caused by aging, sun damage and acne scarring will actually make you look older than you are.

Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution (S$75 for 30ml), the anchor of this highly anticipated whitening collection, is formulated with Activated C (the latest generation Vitamin C derivative) that comes with this Anti-Cluster technology to prevent the formation of new melanin cluster and break apart existing melanin clusters to diminish visible dark spots and discolorations. It also decreases melanin production at the melanocyte and slows melanin transfer to skin’s surface.
