I hope you are all staying safe.
As you all know, my all-time favorite face cream is the White Secret face cream and to date, if I must say, I have not found a face cream that beats it. So, I decided to take another product from the range and give it a try.
Today’s review is about the White Secret Serum.
Product Details: White Secret unifying complexion serum is one of the products of the White Secret brand. It comes in a 30ml dropper bottle which I absolutely love about this serum. The serum is transparent in color and smells quite nice, in my opinion.
Price: 700 naira. Price may vary based on your location.
Ingredients: Propylene glycol, glycerin, sodium metabisulfite, vit E, AHA, Fragrance.
So, I used this serum in two ways. One, I used it as a face serum and I used it only at night. Using the serum on my face, I have to say this serum is highly potent and active. It lightened my face so much that it became a bit scary. Side effects of using White secret serum directly on my face: I noticed after using directly on my face for a week, I began to show signs of facial hair around my mouth which was very unusual. I stopped immediately I noticed this.
For the remaining part of the serum, I could not throw it away, so I added it to my Abonne lotion. This is where I can say I truly saw the benefits of the White secret serum. White secret serum helped boost the moisturizing effect of my Abonne Lotion. During the time I used the serum with the Abonne lotion, I noticed that it was not as drying as I complained in my previous review of the lotion. Although I cannot verify if it works for lightening or whitening the skin when mixed with creams, I can confirm that it helps with moisturizing.
- Very moisturizing to the skin
- Highly effective for brightening, and clearing spots.
- Can be used to mix any lotion or cream.
- Helps to boost the moisturizing effect of any lotion.
- It is a highly concentrated serum.
- It does not contain Hydroquinone based on the packaging.
- Too strong to be used directly on the skin.
In my opinion, I loved this White secret serum. The only thing I would say is I do not know how well it will work for whitening or lightening the skin when mixed with other lotions. Although, I have heard it works very well with other White secret products.
Note that, I was not looking to lighten or whiten my skin, hence, I cannot testify to that effect.
When I originally posted this review, I did not realize that I had actually gotten 2 shades lighter. Just by adding this serum to my lotion. I just noticed that my mum and my friends have been saying I look lighter than usual. I have not changed my routine, the only thing I added was mixing my leftover serum with my Abonne lotion.
White secret serum is a strong and active skin whitening serum. White Secret serum can lighten up to 3 shades lighter with consistent use.
How To Use
Mixing with Lotion: Mix half of one bottle with 500ml lotion just to brighten but if you want to lighten/whiten, use one full 30ml bottle of serum with 500ml of plain lotion. Apply mostly at night and use sunscreen during the day.
Until my next post!
