Secret To Beautiful Glowing Skin.

I was a sports enthusiast during my teenage years and hitting the beach every weekend was a norm. Skin recovery was fantastic back in my "younger" days, I did not have to worry about sunburns because it recovered really quickly! Applying sunscreen was considered optional to me when I was out under the sun. Regrettably, those years of accumulated damages I had caused to my skin came haunting me later in my mid 20s. To make things worst, hormones have wrecked more havoc on my skin after I gave birth to my baby girl. I was at a loss of what I should do to my poor skin condition ):

As I am born with fair complexion, flaws on my skin looked magnified. My skin looked older and makeup became patchy after awhile. I've tried many brightening skincare products, going to brightening facials and even visited skin doctor but none helped. I was on the brink of giving up hope on reviving my skin. Well, Lady Luck must have been on my side when I got to know The Moisturizers Co.

A short background info on The Moisturizers Co.

They are committed to create face moisturizers of the highest quality and efficacy, that combines natural botanical actives and clinical grade actives in its formulations. The Moisturisers Co. is dedicated to offer all valued customers the best in the most essential step of their skincare routine. 


Anyway, I was invited to try their new Brightening Moisturizing Cream with Arbutin and Vitamins. And best part is... 

So here it is...

One thing that I like about the Brightening Moisturizing Cream is that it is very convenient to bring it everywhere I go! I enjoy hotel staycations and does workouts at the gym pretty often. I hated the fact that I needed to pack different bottles of skincare products into my toiletries bag. After getting to know of the Brightening Moisturizing Cream, it becomes fuss-free to keep my skin in good condition even when I'm away from home. (It has been with me to many gym sessions for the past weeks already!) Reason being is that the cream is a one-step serum-infused brightening & moisturizing moisturiser, that said, I save the hassle of bringing an additional serum with me. All I need for my skin is in the cream. Just Cleanse, Tone, Moisturise and I'm good to go!

Now, here's the exciting part... Let's talk about the the skin goodness in the jar of Brightening Moisturizing Cream with Arbutin & Vitamins it has been providing me.

Here's a photo of me sans makeup taken BEFORE I started using the Brightening Moisturizing Cream.

As you can see, the conditions of my skin was really bad. ):
  1. Uneven skin tone that causes overall dullness of the skin.
  2. Brown spots due to pimples from the past.
  3. Dehydrated skin that causes patchiness/roughness of the skin.
The Brightening Moisturizing Cream comes with a gel-like cream texture which absorbs well into my skin. As it does not leave any sticky feeling to the skin, but instead makes my skin feels plump and luxuriously soft almost instantly, I diligently use it over my face and neck every day and night, hoping it will bring "miracle" to my skin.

To my surprise, in just two weeks of usage, I could see some improvements to my skin! I can feel that my skin is well hydrated now, fewer lines caused by dehydration on my face. It is generally smoother! And as stated on the classy-looking packaging, the cream contains highly active skin brightening ingredient like Arbutin which effectively lightens skin pigmentation while preventing the formation of melanin (dark spots). YES! Brown spots on my face are still visible but are undoubtedly lighter in color! Skin tone appears to be more even and brighter!

Although I still do not have perfectly flawless skin yet since it was not long ago from the start of using the Brightening Moisturizing Cream but I believe my skin will be glowing with radiance with prolonged usage because I'm seeing progressive results to my once thought to be helpless skin already!

Have been sharing with my friends my good experience with the Brightening Moisturizing Cream since I started using the product. Many similar questions were raised among them and so I thought I might as well do a FAQs here. Hope it helps!

What type of skin type is suitable to use the Brightening Moisturizing Cream?
It is suitable for normal to dry skin.

The packaging on the Brightening Moisturizing Cream stated to apply the cream in the evening. Does it mean that I cannot use the cream during the day?
Absolutely not! You can use it during the day too! But be sure to slap on sunscreen after the cream because it does not contain SPF (Sun Protection Factor).

Do I need to apply serum/essence before the Brightening Moisturizing Cream?
The answer is yes and no. Yes if the serum you're using is targeted on other concerns besides whitening and hydration. For e.g. Anti-aging. And no, you do not need to if you just want to have a brighter and more supple skin. Like I've mentioned earlier on, Brightening Moisturizing Cream alone can do the job as it is formulated with rich actives and infused with serum.

Can I apply on my eye area too?
Although its a gel-like cream that absorbs well into the skin, it is still not recommended to apply on eye area. The skin around our eye area is thinner than the other parts of our face so it can be too rich for the eye area.

I heard whitening products can cause irritations to the skin easily. Is Arbutin too harsh for my skin?
Arbutin is gentler than other skin-brightening ingredients because its active component is released slowly. It is actually a better choice than other skin-lightening agents especially for the sensitive skin.

I'm born with darker skin tone.
That's not true! Your skin tone is largely determined by the amount of melanin, or the pigment, in your skin. Everyone has some level of melanin in the skin. When you go out in the sun your skin produces more melanin to protect itself from the sun’s radiation. In fact, people with darker skin tones have more melanin. And as you age, concentrated spots of melanin can create age spots, often referred to as liver spots. A skin brightening cream can be a potential solution to prevent or get rid of those spots. As you use skin brighteners, the amount of melanin in your skin will become reduced and your skin will look lighter, in the same way that a tan eventually fades.

I am concerned with their products because it is a new start up brand.
The Moisturizers Co. products are manufactured under GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) certified conditions. They are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. So rest assure that they are safe!

Can pregnant or breastfeeding women use the Brightening Moisturizer Cream?
It is advisable for pregnant or breastfeeding ladies to check with medical specialists before usage.

Is it true that we can do our part for social or animal welfare causes when we purchase The Moisturizers Co. products?
Yes, it is! The Moisturisers Co. is a team of animal lovers, hoping to do more for the local strays. A donation of $1 from every product sale will be made to the Cat Welfare Society Singapore (CWS) in hope of saving more strays! You can do your part too while you achieve beautiful skin!

Lastly, I would like say that the results will not be the same for every user because everyone's skin reacts differently. It may take days or months to see realistic results but nevertheless, take the first step and give what I called the "Hope In A Jar" a try today! You might be on your way to a healthier glowing skin!
