I have been staying indoors for most of the time ever since came back from Guilin trip, then being hospitalized and immobility due to my knee problem. Just in time after my immobility period is over the government issue a Movement Control Order. Means, I have been staying indoor for almost 5 months now. I was expecting a brighter skin. To my disappointment, I developed a dull skin, dry and even new dark spot has appeared out of nowhere. Gosh! Why???? I don't even stay out in the sun!
I just realized I was on the smartphone and computer most of the time even when at home. The radiation causes my skin to become dull and develop a new spot. Yes! my bad...I even neglected the sunscreen application since I thought to stay indoor my skin will be safe from the sun rays. Knock my head hard for this. I should have been more careful.
Since I don't buy any skincare lately, so I just use whatever left at home. My current skincare doesn't have that brightening function. Dying to get get rid of my dull skin and dark spot.
Recently, a popular Japanese brand Rohto by Mentholatum has launched the new Melano CC, Vitamin C Brightening Gel. I was a bit sceptical with this at first. Just another skincare with lots of promise but not even effective to my skin. I gave this a shot since I was so desperate to correct my skin tone. I can't even look at my dull skin face in the mirror. isk isk isk
Apparently, Melano CC is famous with its Vitamin C Brightening Essence which sustains the No. 2. Whitening Essence in Japan for 4 continuous years. This new Brightening Gel - a moisturiser formulated with Vitamin C, Fruits extracts and has deep penetration technology to brighten dull skin, even out skin tone, fight dark spots, lighten pimple marks and minimize pores. At the same time keeping the skin hydrated and all for a radiantly brighter, youthful skin.
When to apply this Melano CC Vitamin C Brightening Gel?
Is this a moisturiser? Is this a serum? Is this an essence?
At first, I was so confused about when to apply this Gel. Since Melano CC Vitamin C Brightening Gel is a moisturizer. I finish off my skincare routine with this Gel. Just apply this at your last step of skincare routine.
My experience after using the Melano CC Vitamin C Brightening Gel
The texture is Gel type and a bit slimy, feeling soothing when it touches my skin and easily absorp. I love the citrus refreshing smells out of this gel. Make me addicted to applying this more and more. hahaha
I guess it because this gel moisturiser contains some of the extracts below :
- Alpinia seed extract - a ginger extract that helps and even out skin tone;
- Cornus Officinalis (Japanese Cornel) Fruit extract - deeply hydrates and soothes skin;
- Lemon extract - helps hydrates skin for a significantly soft, smooth and supple skin;
- Citrus - adds fragrance to the moisturizer.
Good news to me! No joke no oversell or anything since I don't get a commission out of this. I just started to include Melano CC Vitamin C Brightening Gel 2 days ago. I was so amazed by how it brightens up my skin in a short period. This works! At least for my dull skin and uneven skin tone. I think the spotless part may take a bit longer to be spotless. hahahaha..Like I always mentioned in my previous skincare review, I don't believe any product can give me a magical solution.
Since I was amazed by the short period performance of this Melano CC Vitamin C Brightening Gel, I was thinking to purchase and use the complete series to achieve optimum results.
