Moisture White Shiso Whitening Night Treatment Review
An even complexion is a dream for many of us. I wanted a cream which would even out my complexion and lighten the spots. So I got The Body Shopâ€™s Moisture White range cream.
- What the product claims :- A velvety non-greasy cream to help to renew skin as we sleep, helping to leave it more supple and smoother.
- Size: 40 ml
- Price: Rs. 1695
Shiso : Reduces the early melanin making signals, before they trigger the hyper pigmentation process.
Aloe : Soothing the skin ,restoring its translucent complexion and promoting a luminous skin from within
Batyl Alcohol: Helps to reduce skins response to the melanin attack on the skin
How to use The method of use is not given on the website but I was told by the SA that its supposed to be used as any normal night cream. So I cleansed, toned my face and the massaged with the cream every night.
First of all let me tell about my skin type. I have a dusky, oily in summers (mainly T zone) and normal in winters . acne prone skin.
My empty tub
The pros :
- It comes in a cute white and light weight tub.
- The cream is quite moisturizing just after applying . though after around 10-15mins it gives little stretchy feeling.
- I didnâ€™t experience any break out after using it
- Its absorbed quickly in the skin.
- It has aloe in it. Which is an awesome herb.
According to internet, betyl alcohol is derived from glycerin and used as a stabilizing ingredient and skin-conditioning agent. So I guess thatâ€™s a good thing for dry skinned people.
I bought it in December, then it felt nice on my skin. Only my t zone was little oily in the morning. But as the temperature went little high it started feeling very oily. And when I say oily, it means as if you applied oil kinda oily. So it is not â€œvelvety non-greasy creamâ€ .I have been using it as foot cream. I know I know. Itâ€™s torturous to use 1645/- worth cream as foot cream but what can I do. Have to use it somewhere.
It has a weird kind of fragrance which seems very intense at first but after a while just a very light whiff remains.
The tall claims made by the website remained unfulfilled. Though I gave them a benefit of doubt as I used only the night cream from the range. But guys, there should have been at least a teeny weenie difference.
Full list of ingredients is not given.
The price is very steep. Paying 1645/- for something which doesnâ€™t work , sounds very brutal to me.
It comes in a tub so not hygienic.
Verdict : ladies with oily skin stay away from it. I am going to stay far away from it. It could be used by dry skinned ladies for its moisturizing properties. But I think you can buy few bottles of any good body shoo moisturizer in this cost of this one tub.
