Brighten & Lighten With Clarins White Plus Pure Translucency

Just like the rest of Asian's women out there, I'm guilty of obsessing over fairer looking skin too. It's not really on my top priority list before but ever since I watched Emma Stone in La La Land dancing away beautifully with Ryan Gosling, I can't help but noticing how glowing and healthy her skin looks. So I made up my mind and make it my mission to transform my dull and lifeless skin to a brighter and lighter version this year.

I'm so lucky to have Clarins White Plus Pure Translucency to help me with that.

It cleanse my face pretty well without irritating my skin at all and can double up as makeup remover as well. I also love the soft scent it comes with and the dispenser.

MY VERDICT: This treatment lotion works really well as a toner, efficiently removes any residue left after cleansing and making my skin feels fresh and hydrate along the way. It have similar soft and pleasant scent but the packaging seems to be made from different material which making it not as travel friendly as the cleanser. I truly like the fact that it's non drying and how it lighten up my skin after every use. A perfect whitening toner it is!
