Some people look fair but having a healthy looking skin would be another step to achieve. This past few weeks, I received these products from Snow Skin to test out. It's their Snow Skin Whitening Cream for the face and Lotion for the body use. These whitening cream for face or lotion safe are both hydroquinone-free & paraben-free.
They contain a High % of concentration of all these active ingredients. This is crucial because manufacturers only use a very small % of Whitening Actives. Usually they only use one main expensive active then they mixed it with cheaper actives like papaine or Kojic Acid. For example, the highly effective skin active Alpha Arbutin costs around Php125,000 per liter. Most manufacturers only use 0.01% of Alpha Arbutin to gain higher profit margins. But because Snow Skin Whitening aims to provide quick and effective results, they use 2% which is the recommended % for faster whitening effect.

- Snow Skin Whitening Cream - Face The cream has a thick texture and application needs effort to smooth it into the skin, sometimes I also wipe out excess when I over apply cream. I believe extra work of face cream application is worth it as facial massage helps the skin too. It really moisturize my skin and gives a glow the next day when I apply it during the night, I normally sleep 5-6 hours a day yet I still look like I have a normal 8 hours sleep. This Snow Skin Whitening Face Cream didn't aggravate nor break out my skin. I think I might prefer a better pump for face creams as I can easily control how much I apply than this pump packaging from Snow Skin. This will be surely perfect for ber months when my skin usually experience dry patches.
- Snow Skin Whitening Lotion - Body Used only once a day in the morning, with less sun exposure, I'm really amazed how the 3 week usage provide effective result. I really like the Snow Skin Whitening Lotion which makes my skin really fair. It completely moisturized the skin for almost throughout the day as I do not prefer reapplication of body lotions.
