My “half-face” Test – MISSHA vs L’OREAL

Standard

although i experiment with alot of skincare products,
i usually dont see the visible results as apparent as others.
i dont know why, but i tell myself it is part of a long term benefit.
like drinking ample water every day…

so i started putting stuff on half my face,
as you might have seen in my Lancome Brightening Essence post

this time, i am try the L’OREAL White Laser Anti-spot brightening essence
to the RIGHT side of my face

on my left side, i use the MISSHA TIME REVOLUTION WHITE CURE REAL EXPERT SERUM (omg i feel out of breath typing it)

After abuot 4 – 6 weeks…

MY LEFT SIDE IS NOTICEABLY AND SIGNIFICANTLY FAIRER AND BRIGHTER THAN MY RIGHT SIDE!

i am surprised at the disparity, and slightly worried as i need to start pampering my right side now.
so now i am putting the MISSHA serum on my right twice a day, the left – once.

BUT i must say that, the l’oreal anti spot essence did lighten the pigmentation on my right cheek, but MISSHA one doesnt lighten the pigmentation on my left.

i cant wait to get my hands on more korean skincare in December in Korea!

[Review] L’Oreal Youth Code pre-essence

Standard

one of the items in last month’s Bellabox – the hyped up L’Oreal Youth code pre-essence!

i am quite excited to try this cos i’ve seen the ads everywhere, prints, internet, youtube. was thinking if its really so good… increase absorption of skin X2!

this is meant to be used on cleansed face before the usual skincare routine. I was apprehensive at first as i really dont get these multi steps routine, and i think its just a marketing gimmick to add another ‘staple’ into the routine

 

100,000 women tried it and saw instant results

the essence is off-white in colour of thick consistency, more runny than your usual serums

And true enough, I must be the 100,001 person whom saw instant results.
the skin really becomes softer immediately. however, i am not sure if softer skin = better for absorption of products.

applying to only the right side of my face (LEFT SIDE OF THE PHOTO)

i have tried this for about a week. i am happy to use it as my skin really becomes significantly softer each time i applied, with no sticky feeling.
If this is to increase the effectiveness of my skincare, i think its hard to judge as i seldom see visible difference and i always believe skincare is part of a long process to keep up and maintain.

i would recommend this to others, considering it is affordable and it works to keep skin soft and prep for the next steps of nutrients
