That's right, I am using a whitening product, Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Facial Scrub to be exact, in order to achieve a face with even skin color. I wonder if it really works and if it's true to its claim on smoother and glowing skin. For the record, I am not obsessed with whitening creams or lotions like most girls out there. Truthfully, I don't see my complexion as something that I need to change. I love it that I am brown or tan, but I always have to address its roughness and dryness being a person who suffers from skin asthma and extra dry skin. I have a combination of types when it comes to my face. My T-zone is oily, my cheeks are a bit sensitive, then my forehead is very dry. I have dark spots in my chin every now and then, one thing that I get from kissing my full-bearded husband, plus freckles from below my temples to my upper jawlines. When it's cold, my skin becomes tight and itchy. When it's too hot, it becomes dry.
I watched a review of this product in YouTube and read from fellow blogger that she's been using this brand ever since it came out. They got me really curious, so I am finally giving it a try.
The packaging says, Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Facial Scrub is inspired by the Javanese royalty tradition intended for the bride-to-be to beautify her skin before her wedding day.
Dyaraan! I hope I didn't scare you with this photo as you scroll down the site. This is just me with my face covered with Lulur facial scrub. I basically look like this every evening before bedtime. Lol.
Again, this is my first time to use a facial scrub for the sake of whitening, like consciously, on a single part of my body. Which part you ask? That's the forehead. As you may notice in my old photos here in the blog, my forehead is darker than the rest of my face. It's awkwardly dry and shiny, too. Honestly, it has been my problem since high school and makes me feel embarrassed at times. When I was young, I experimented on a certain cream to treat skin asthma, eventually healed but ruined my forehead. These days, I make sure I apply powder, foundation, or BB cream to make it look even before going out. Well, I hope Asian Secrets help me deal with this problem. I've been using Lulur facial scrub for weeks now. Here's my short and honest review about it.
What I like about Lulur:
-It has micro beads which aids the removal of dead skin.
-The smell is not overpowering. At least, it doesn't hurt my nose when I accidentally rubbed it around the area.
-Gentle to the face. No stinging sensation after use.
-Acts as a facial cleanser, too. No need to grab a soap after scrubbing.
-Very handy like a spa on the go.
-Affordable at P70 for a 50 gram tube.
-Available almost anywhere.
Things That I don't Like:
-It is not advisable for everyday use.
-No enough moisturizer for my extra dry forehead.
-Result doesn't come quickly. Sorry, nothing else to say. Haha.
That's just my personal experience right there. Everyone has a different skin type and reaction to a certain product could vary depending on the person, so I still recommend it. In my case, I think I have to continue using it until I see a visible result. I can see I lightened a little but not yet satisfied with it. I am giving Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Facial Scrub a shot by finishing an entire tube before finally going back to this entry and conclude its whitening capacity. Till then!
