I have been incorporating some of Guerlain Blanc de Perle skincare products into my morning routine for a month now. I use Diorsnow skincare range at night before bed. These two combination of brightening products cleared out my skin, evening out my skin tone and did a great job in lightening some pimple marks on my face. I use less concealers and just a light dusting of powder is enough to make my skin look good.
In the morning, I always wash my face with a foam cleanser to get rid of the oil and grease accumulated while sleeping. I’ve been enjoying the Diorsnow foam cleanser but I do switch it out for Estee Lauder Nutritious foam cleanser too. If my face is not behaving, when the hormones are doing some crazy things once a month, then I’d use my Vichy Normaderm because it has salicylic acid to keep spots at bay. Then, I’d use a toner.
The Blanc De Perle Lotion Whitening Pearl Perfection 200ml, RM195, is a very light toner that absorbs into face almost immediately. This toner has anti ageing detoxifying properties so it prevents skin damage caused by free radicals. Instead of applying it using a cotton pad, I squeeze a pump onto my palms and pat it on gently. There is a refreshing white flower scent to this line of skincare, and I absolutely LOVE it. It doesn’t smell sweet at all, and in fact, it’s like getting a whiff of a garden full of flowers after a light shower during Spring. The toner preps my face for the serum that I’d use after.
The Blanc De Perle P.E.A.R.L. Drop Whitening Essence 30ml, RM410 is a brightening serum that promises to reduce the size of dark spots while protecting the skin’s youthfulness. The liquid has a sheen like pearls do, and half a dropper is enough to cover my entire face. The serum is very light in texture so it absorbs easily without the sticky feeling. It can be used day and night, but I just love it for day time use. It’s literally weightless! It has the same scent I described earlier, so it’s like another dose of happiness when I apply this. I usually apply my eye serum and eye cream before moisturizers, so that would be my next step. Some say to leave it for last, but no matter, I don’t believe there is a specific order to when we apply eye care. Some even advised me to apply it right after toner, so there.
For my normal combination skin, I love the Blanc De Perle Matifying Hydrating Emulsion 50ml, RM234 for day! It has anti free radical ingredients that boosts the skin’s defences against everyday hazards like stress and pollution. Again, it is light in texture, and doesn’t promote any greasiness on my skin. I only use one pump for the entire face, and it takes less than 5 seconds to be fully absorbed into the skin, leaving it soft and bouncy, ready for sunscreen and foundation. Some moisturizers shorten the staying power of foundations, but this doesn’t.
I have been on a brightening journey for about 3 months now, starting with Diorsnow, and my skin has never felt or looked better. There are no dry bits, skin is clearer and definitely brighter. When I say brighter, it doesn’t mean you’ll get lighter, like from a medium shade to a fair shade. We all know that’s not possible. Brighter here means, there is a healthy glow to the skin, less sallowness, less tired. I hope you understand what I’m trying to tell you. Below are the ingredient lists for those who are interested.
I’ve been gushing about these products because they are undeniably great for my skin. I can’t speak for everyone, naturally, but these are the main contributors to the compliments I’ve been getting on my much improved skin. The serum is very expensive for 30ml, so it would be painful to restock, but I’d repurchase the moisturizer in a heartbeat. However, if I had a big fat wallet, I’d get backups.
