If you’re obsessed about whitening and brightening your skin, this post’s for you. Today’s skincare compilation consists of 4 skincare brands, each with at least one whitening / brightening skincare product / range that apparently we Asians are obsessed over.
If Google brought you here while you’re searching for a specific product review, I hope you’ll also enjoy reading up about other products featured in this post as well! 😉
The Body Shop Drops of Light & Enrich Not Exploit Campaign
The Body Shop’s Drop of Light promises to:
reveal your most luminous complexion yet with our complete skin‑brightening regime. Suitable for sensitive skin with an array of sensorial textures, each product in this range gives you another dose of brighter skin, day after day.
The collection consists of Pure Clarifying Foam Wash (not pictured), Pure Translucency Essence Lotion, Pure Healthy Brightening Day Cream & Skin Defence Multi Protection Essence. For more product features, information and prices here. The key ingredient in this range is atlantic red algae extract that is rich in minerals, nutrients and vitamin C which gives its brightening effect. What I love about the range is the scent and how light it feels on the skin. I really enjoy using the Facial Foam Wash. Another key product to highlight is the Skin Defence Multi Protection Essence which boasts to be The Body Shop’s highest protection sun block with the lightest weight texture. And it definitely feels like it… as a plus, it smells great too!
During the same time of Drops of Light launch, The Body Shop also launched a Enrich not Exploit campaign to show that they
are committed to working fairly with our farmers and suppliers and helping communities to thrive. Our products enrich, but never make false promises and are never tested on animals. For more information about the campaign visit here.
The Body Shop Drops of Youth
Body Shop Drops of Youth range helps to revitalise anti-aging skin by kick-starting the cell repair process and delivering a much-needed hit of supple hydration.
Drops of Youth Cream, Youth Essence Lotion & Youth Concentrate, for full range see here.
Having tried the above three products, I can attest that the range is remarkable light for an anti-aging range. A user-pro tip that I’ve seen from The Body Shop’s Facebook post/advertisement is using both the Drops of Light and Drops of Youth serums together for a double packed brightening and hydrating effect!
Thank you The Body Shop Singapore and WOM PR for sending over the products over for review! <3
Eucerin White Therapy Range
Sun exposure, hormonal changes, skin inflammation, and acne scarring can all lead to problems of hyperpigmentation – a key concern for many Asian women. Specially formulated for Asian skin, Eucerin® White Therapy is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of dark spots to give you visibly brighter skin in just over 12 weeks.
Eucerin® White Therapy acts at the root of the problem – where melanin synthesis occurs. The products are formulated with key ingredients B-Resorcinol and Glycyrrhetinic Acid to prevent excessive melanin production and work to continuously reduce pigmentation. Beyond its melanin-suppressive capabilities, the formula also supports and stimulates the skin’s natural ability to repair damage and helps to prevent signs of premature ageing.
This range works on dark spots, age spots, melasma, freckles, post-inflammatory stress, and acne scarring to give you a brighter and more even skin tone. Overtime, Eucerin® White Therapy also helps to prevent the reappearance of pigmentation.
Eucerin is a dermatologist recommended skincare that you’ll find readily available at drug store so it’s no surprise when I adopted this range of skincare for a week that it’s fragrance free and very gentle on my skin. If you’ve got sensitive skin and you’re looking for a range of skincare to help you regain your skin’s fairness without any harsh ingredients, I’d definitely recommend this range!

Eucerin & Nivea’s Top 10 Best Selling Products
I don’t even know where to start for this. Here are the top 10 best selling Eucerin, Nivea and Nivea Men’s products!
Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset
From left to right: Eucerin Volume Filler Day Cream, Eucerin pH5 Skin Protecting Shower Oil, Nivea Men Oil Control Brightening Mud Serum Foam, Nivea Men Cool Kick Anti Perspirant Spray, Nivea Lip Balm, Nivea Sun Block, Nivea Firming Body Serum, Nivea Makeup Clear Micellar Water
Obviously I can’t attest to the men’s products, but I can say that even before Nivea sent these over to me, I’ve been using Nivea’s Body Milk Night Whitening Lotion at night, because you know, I also want fairer skin and Nivea products smell so good and are so affordable. Sometimes when I’m not too lazy, I also use the above Firming Body Serum with SPF33 as a day body sun block. I’m also almost finishing the Nivea Micellar Water, and they’ve just me the new updated version which is even better! More on the new products in another separate post! 🙂
Nivea has also launched Extra White Serum Deodorant and Anti Perspirant spray. The key ingredients are 10x Vitamin C and Avocado Oil to smoothen and whiten under arms while keeping them fresh for longer. For Nivea’s whitening deodorant, see here.
Thank you Eucerin, Nivea & The PR People for sending the products over for review! <3
CNP White Peel Home Set
A home-based whitening treatment program that is used in dermatology clinics, it uses the latest Polyhydroxy Acids (PHA) principle. The formula removes dead skin cells and brightens skin tone resulting in clear radiant skin.
For more information, visit their site here. I’ve yet to review this set yet, do look out for my review update on my IG. 🙂
Kiehls’ Nature Powered Masks
Kiehls’ launched two new masks early this year, the TURMERIC & CRANBERRY SEED ENERGIZING RADIANCE MASQUE and CILANTRO & ORANGE EXTRACT POLLUTANT DEFENDING MASQUE. I love that this is a quick 10 min mask, the cranberry seeds exfoliates the skin in a gentle and natural manner, revealing clean and rejuvenated skin~
Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution
It seems that I might have just reserved the best for the last, in this case. I don’t think I need to say anything else except that this is a truly remarkable blemish clearing product and it delivers the very promise it makes on its product name; Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution. I’ve used it on my acne spots on multiple nights and I always find that I wake up to clearer skin and lightened blemish spots… highly recommended!
Thank you Wei-Lin of Kiehls for sending the products over for review! <3
