Crush and Eject Dark Spots with Shiseido White Lucent Intensive Spot Whitening Serum+ and Power Brightening Mask

Last February 9, together with your favourite beauty bloggers, I lazied around at the Shiseido Beauty Lounge at SM Makati. They pampered us to bits as they introduced to us the ultimate pair when it comes to ultimate spotless, white skin – Shiseido Intensive Spot Whitening Serum+ and Power Brightening Mask.

Quick shout out to Shiseido: thank you for feeding my mask fancy! If you’ve been reading this blog long enough, you would have chanced on these 2 snaps showing y’all how addicted I am to brightening facial masks. :)


My HG anti-haggard secret from April 2011 challenged by the Shiseido Power Brightening Mask (why not?)

How often do you slap on a facial mask in the middle of a shopping centre for everyone to see? Us? Hmmm…every chance we get!

Nakakahaba din pala ng buhok ang facial mask :)

If we’ve met in person and you’ve heard me incessantly gush about something then you should have an inkling where this is all going. The snap below’s before trying out the Shiseido White Lucent Intensive Spot Whitening Serum+ and Power Brightening Mask. I’ll lay it all out here — I was petrified to try the duo out considering I’m going back and forth my dermatologist for acne surgeries. It’s not very obvious in the photo below but that’s taken during the height of my excessive peeling. My skin was so raw I cannot tolerate even my dermatologist’s prescription. :(

Considering I’ve tried Shiseido skin care products in the past and not one broke me out, I made a 911 call to my other dermatologist (just because the line of Dr. Gatmaytan’s busy). After 5 minutes of asking if this and that ingredient will cause my skin to burn or breakout further, I finally got a green light to try the duo above.

After double cleansing my skin with the softener, I closed my eyes and crossed my fingers that my face will not burn the moment we pat the serum on. Et voila…it didn’t! In fact, it even soothed the flaking and kept it cool, cushy and supple. Sold to the almost unfamiliar, comfort I got from the serum, I was knocked out the moment I checked out my reflection. My facial skin appeared so much less red, definitely brighter, almost like I was so well rested and there’s that luminosity that you can’t point where it came from. I was obviously a happy camper already when the Shiseido team said we haven’t “officially” started yet.

Soooo I put the mask on and sat pretty. It felt like the longest and surprisingly, the most relaxing 10 minutes (length of time you have to leave the mask on) of my life. It’s exag like that because remember — there’s zero comfort in acne surgery! :) While I was at it, I did a little research to learn how this mask really works. Here’s what I found:

This exclusive whitening mask was inspired by iontophoresis, the beauty treatment that saturates skin with an abundance of whitening products. Through the power of Ion Force Technology, the mask’s whitening ingredients are absorbed deep within the skin for highly effective results.

How did the Shiseido White Lucent Power Brightening Mask fare against my HG anti-haggard mask from 2 years ago? Let’s just say…wow. This product is so potent that finally, my face has become as fair as my neck and chest! Something I’ve been trying my very best to achieve since uhmmm forever. :)

For someone who’s been trying to get rid of pesky sun spots and acne marks, this duo’s very promising. In all honesty, I found my HG brightening products a couple of years back (I even put my name on it *wink*) but this duo from Shiseido’s slowly making its way to the forefront of my boudoir. It’s so promising that I carted a couple more stuff from the White Lucent line from Sephora last week. I thought it’s always nice to share great finds soooo I shopped a little more for a couple of you! :)

  1. It will lessen my use of makeup! Hiding blemishes and spots and those oh so big pores! You said the magic words already “This product is so potent that finally, my face has become as fair as my neck and chest! ” I want! :)

  2. I can finally go run errands and go to the playground with my son without spending so much time putting on makeup on my face if I have bright and spotless skin.

  3. With clear skin, I’ll be much more confident in everything I do. I can finally go out without worrying and hiding dark spots.

  4. I don’t have to spend too much money on facial treatments, make up and other facial care products. A good wash will do. And I have nothing to worry about when I’m outdoors because of my spotless complexion. No more visible dark spots!

  5. I can finally just wear powder and SPF moisturizer to work everyday. No need to use concealer or thick foundation. Having crystal clear, spotless skin would also make me more confident in meeting clients :)

  6. I’ll be able to muster enough confidence to walk without my head hanging down and be more sociable knowing I don’t have attention-grabbing marks on my face.

  7. I think that with spotless and fair complexion, I can finally have that confidence to ask for my boss for a promotion. I don’t necessarily want to be super fair, I just want to get rid of the pimple mark I’ve got from my teenage years that I still conceal on a daily basis.

  8. I can finally stop hoarding my best friend’s stash in search for my own HG boudoir. My skin will finally be able to breathe without me having to pile on too much stuff on it.

  9. I won’t have to spend too much money on whitening facial treatments, and I can finally buy foundations with the previous correct shades, since my face is about six times darker than my whole body now!

  10. With bright and spotless complexion, I can finally fulfill my life-long dream of being able to go out without even a trace of makeup on and still feel confident that I look fresh and good!

  11. I can finally have the gal to tell my fiance that yes — we can start our wedding preps! One of the things that set me back is my lack of confidence being the center of attention. I don’t see anything wrong with my golden skin tone but I my skin looks so dull, no matter how beaming I am with joy, I don’t have that luminous glow. :(

  12. My relentless search for the best concealer and foundation can finally be concluded with bright and spotless complexion. Clear skin is also such a potent boost of confidence that comes in handy in most situations.

  13. I can now be more confident with my skin with or without makeup! I used to hear people say behind my back that I have pale skin, but with brigiht and spotless complexion, I would hear them say how great my skin is! Achieve!

  14. For once, I will no longer be ashamed to go out and be in photos without wearing any make-up, BB creams or powder on my face to cover my blemishes and acne scars. I use it all the time even just to buy some eggs at my neighbor’s tindahan . I can be more confident and show the public my true beauty.

  15. With a bright & clear complexion, clueless people won’t wonder anymore why my handsome son is so maputi! Hahahahahaha major pet peeve!
