Skin Care Routine Unveiled: Whitening Care with Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil, By Wishtrend Pure Vitamin C21.5 Advanced Serum, Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask & Klairs Mochi BB Cushion

Whitening is such a magical word to me that I will sub-consciously be drawn to beauty products with skin whitening effect. Confession: Fair skin is my ultimate life goal. Not discriminating on skin colour but I really like my skin to look fair and bright. Due to my job nature, I have to work under the scorching sun for most of the time so I work tremendously hard to keep my skin fair. (It seems like I have repeated the same thing over and over in this blog but what I want to emphasize is that my fair complexion does not come without efforts!) I have done a lot to maintain my skin complexion and today, I’m going to share a few trusty whitening products from Klairs with you guys. 

Simple but Enough
Mild but Powerful
Basic but Ultimate

I personally think that the Klairs’ tagline translates the brand’s concept perfectly and I can’t agree more with it. When I was preparing this review and going through my beauty stash, I realized that I have so many products from Klairs in my drawer including their BB cream, Black Sugar Facial Scrub, Organic Soap, Facial Mask and Mochi Cushion – All of them works so well that they have become my staple skin care. 

Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil

Today I’m going to focus on whitening care products at night and let’s start with Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil. As I mentioned for umpteen times in this blog, cleansing is the most important skin care step, but often be neglected by most of the people. Thorough and deep cleansing can remove gunk and dirt from your pores, hence enhancing the absorption of subsequent skin care products. I wear make up to work every day so I’m extra cautious when it comes to make up remover. Usually I will have 2 bottles of make up remover on my vanity table and switch between them – a cleansing oil and a water based micellar water. (Well there are times when I switch among 3 bottles of make up remover when I want to try out new product). Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil is one of the regular on my vanity table for its excellent cleansing and whitening properties.

In contrast to its name, Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil is a clear, colourless cleansing oil. The “Black” comes from the fact that the cleansing oil is made from natural black grains extracts, which are

  • Black Bean Oil – Control sebum excretion, increase skin elasticity & provides soothing effect
  • Black Sesame Oil – Antioxidant that prevents skin dehydration & skin aging
  • Black Current Seed Oil – Antioxidant that promotes cell regeneration & strengthens skin protective layer to prevent evaporation of moisture from skin

Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil is an extremely light oil where waterproof make up can be melted in seconds. One pump of the product is abundant to remove all make up from your face. One thing to take note is that the cleansing oil is so light and watery that it might flow from your palm to your elbow and cause a mess. Therefore, remember to pump the oil little by little to avoid the mess. 

I like to use cleansing oil to remove waterproof make up and sunblock because the oil can emulsify the stubborn make up in a breeze. Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil is such an effective cleansing oil that it manages to dissolve matte liquid lipstick effortlessly. What I love about Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil is that it leaves my skin so well moisturized, soft and bouncy, the skin care effects are really significant!

After a deep and thorough cleansing, it's time to pamper your skin with a good serum. I'm not sure about others, but I always use 2 types of serum, one for whitening and one for hydrating purpose. 

By Wishtrend Pure Vitamin C21.5 Advanced Serum

By Wishtrend Pure Vitamin C21.5 Advanced Serum is actually an upgraded version of the famous C20 Vitamin Serum, which is one of the best whitening serum that I have ever tried. I really like C20 products including their C20 Natural Vitamin 21.5 Enhancing Sheet Mask, K-beauty lovers will definitely know how good this brand is.

The new and improved formula is designed with less ingredients for more effects. How interesting is this, less ingredients and more effects? In fact, Pure Vitamin C21.5 Advanced Serum is formulated with a sheer 21.5% of pure vitamin C for the best whitening effect.

Do note that the serum is very sensitive to sunlight and heat due to its high concentration of Vitamin C. The best way to preserve all the goodness in the serum is to keep it refrigerated and chilled. 

I noticed that the serum is lighter and more watery as compared to its precedent, which is great for product absorption by the skin. The serum is absorbed instantly upon application, leaving behind a fresh and dry finish, as if nothing has been applied on. The serum has a mild tangy and citric scent due to its high concentration of Vitamin C and I'm sure that you will love the refreshing scent. 

Some of you might be worried that 21.5% of pure vitamin C will be too strong to your skin but rest assured, it's quite gentle to skin. I have really thin epidermal layer and the serum did not cause any discomfort to my skin, except a slight tingling sensation above my lips and it's totally bearable. 

Speaking of its whitening effect, I have to be frank that the effects do take some time to come into sight. Don't expect that the serum will brighten your complexion in 1 week. In all fairness, this is skin care, not make up. The whitening effect is significant and noticeable after finishing the whole bottle of serum so be patient and keep using it regularly, you will definitely be rewarded with a brighter and fairer skin. 

Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask

Next, let's moisturize your skin with Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask. I dare say that Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask is the most highly raved K-beauty mask among my friends in 2017, everyone is using it except me! (I know I'm a slowpoke) The holographic packaging is super eye-captivating that I'm still keeping the pretty box in my drawer lol! 

Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask

When I thought that this is just another sleeping mask, it actually does a lot more than that. Vitamin E is a major lipid-soluble antioxidant in skin which can be found in most of the skin’s epidermis, dermis and stratum corneum. Basically Vitamin E can protect your skin against peroxide and pro-oxidants. Therefore, a low Vitamin E level in skin will weaken the skin's protective function, hence allowing harmful foreign substances to invade and cause aging of the skin. On a side note, applying Vitamin E on your face can help to prevent cell aging by keeping the cell membrane from lipid peroxidation.

Fun Fact: Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask is most effective when used with vitamin C!

Vitamin E and C can enhance the effectiveness of each other through the antioxidant network and protect the skin from active oxygen, hence preventing aging. In addition, Vitamin E prevents vitamin C from being oxidized before being absorbed by the skin, thus intensifying the skincare benefits of vitamin C. Therefore, it's recommended to pair Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask with By Wishtrend Pure Vitamin C21.5 Advanced Serum so that they can complement with each other. 

Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask has an indescribable texture - it feels like jelly on touch, but melt into a gel cream upon spreading out. The gel cream mask is incredibly rich but fret not, it does not feel sticky and greasy on skin. I was worried that the rich mask will break me out but I was proven wrong. The formulation strikes a balance between richness and lightweight-ness, it's just nice. The mask is so light that it can be used as a day cream too! I love to apply a really thin layer of the mask on my skin before going to bed and wake up the next morning with plump, soft and well-moisturized skin. The skin softening and smoothing effects are so obvious that you can feel it right after one use. I would definitely recommend this to my friends, it really works! 

Klairs Mochi BB Cushion

I always believe that skin care is more important than make up to make one to look great. With a good skin condition, one can look fabulous and glowing even without make up on. After pampering my skin at the night before, I'm all ready to put on simple make up the next day.

Klairs Mochi BB Cushion Pact is legit the cutest cushion that I ever own so far! Even my mum was wow-ed by this kawaii-looking cushion and asked me if it is a toy lol! I particularly love the rounded edge design that gives a more comfortable grip to user, and it gives the cushion an innocent feel at the same time. The cushion casing has a matte finish, which is quite unusual as most of the brands prefer to create a shiny, lavish and luxury looking casing.

I was amazed by the creative built-in cap case upon opening the cushion lid, how thoughtful is this! With this built-in cap case, the cushion and product can be isolated properly and hence, product contamination can be greatly reduced. It's more hygienic as the cushion can be sealed after using.

Fun Fact: There is only one shade available for Klairs Mochi BB Cushion Pact

I was a bit skeptical when I know that there is only one shade available, I was like, how could one shade miraculously matches all the skin tones? The truth is, it indeed can match most of the Asian's skin tones. 

Mochi BB Cushion has an apricot-beige tone that complements both yellow and red skin undertone in a natural way. It neutralizes the redness of the skin and meanwhile, it is able to brighten dull and uneven skin tone. Klairs Mochi BB Cushion is a light cushion that provide medium coverage. In fact, it is a balm-type cushion instead of a liquid type cushion. Therefore, the BB cream can fill in the pores to give a porcelain alike skin finish. 

In a nutshell, it's best to use whitening skin care at night as some of the whitening products are sensitive to sunlight and they are not suitable to be used during day time. Hopefully my whitening skin care routine at night is helpful to you guys! Just bear in mind that
