Review: The Nature’s Co. - White Pepper Cleansing Lotion

I was always irregular with my CTM routine until i had severe breakouts one day as a result of using some stupid cream. I was so depressed as i am not used to acne because i have a dry facial skin. Apart from the medications, I was advised to follow CTM routine strictly and trust me it really worked. My skin cleared up in a while and i still make sure to follow the routine no matter how tired i am at the end of the day.

Today i am going to review my favorite cream based cleanser - The Nature's Co. Pepper Cleanser that really helped me during the acne phase.

What the product Claims:

  • Deep cleansing, antiseptic & purifying.
  • Wipe it all off with the antiseptic and purifying qualities of White Pepper. It increases blood flow at the skin’s surface enabling the ingredients to penetrate immediately and clean more effectively. Massage a small amount gently onto your skin using circular movements. Then either rinse with warm water or wipe with wet cotton pad. It can also be used to remove both eye and face make-up.

Ingredient List:

PR INFO: Get rid of Pigmentation from its roots with Vichy Bi-White Med Deep Corrective Whitening Essence!

This festive season get rid of pigmentation from its roots! Now no one goes deeper than the new Vichy Bi-White Med Deep Corrective Whitening Essence!

As we welcome the Festive and Wedding season, one wants the perfect skincare product that will help get rid of the unwanted pigmentation and dullness.  Skin looks radiant and glowy only when treated from within. Vichy Bi-WHITE Med Deep Corrective Whitening Essence is just the perfect option one should opt for.

Skin whitening expertise has only focused on the outermost layer of the skin –the epidermis- for the longest time, but recent findings have now clarified that fibroblasts altered by the sun and ageing induce overproduction of melanin which is deep seated into the dermis. This overload of melanin causes pigmentary ageing, severe dark spots and dull skin. To combat this problem, VICHY Laboratoires offers the revolutionary Bi-WHITE Med Deep Corrective Whitening Essence that targets the deeper roots of melanin and inductive melanin agents such as inflammatory mediators yield by UVs, pollution and stress to control pigmentation.

The Vichy Bi-WHITE Med Deep Corrective Whitening Essence is a skin lightening breakthrough with its CERAMIDE WHITE™ + LHA to act in every single layer of the epidermis and DRM-WHITETM Technology to target the dermis. Optimally concentrated Ceramide White™ de-pigment cells in every single layer of the epidermis by acting at the root of melanin production.

Vichy Bi-WHITE Med Deep Corrective Whitening Essence has proven guaranteed efficacy on the following problem areas:

  • Dark spots
  • Dullness 
  • Yellowish skin tone
  • Irregular skin texture

 The essence shows a drastic improvement in the skin’s overall appearance by acting on dark spots, dull skin and skin’s quality. The product has clinically proven correction of dark spots, it is free of parabens and is proven suitable for Asian sensitive skin and is enriched with the Vichy Thermal Spa Water. Bi-WHITE Med Deep Corrective Whitening Essence is Hypoallergenic therefore it does not cause breakouts.

100% women confirmed that regular use of Bi-WHITE Med Deep Corrective Whitening Essence gives:
  • Visible whitening effect
  • More even complexion
  • More radiant skin tone
  • Reduction of skin dullness

No one goes deeper than Vichy’s Bi-WHITE Med Deep Corrective Whitening Essence to unveil flawless luminosity of the skin from within!

Glow through the festive season this year with pigmentation-free skin and make heads turn!

  • Apply eyeshadow. Apply a medium color on your eyelid like pink, light brown or any other middle-of-the-road hue for this area.
  • Apply a light color on your brow bone.Highlight this area and make more light bounce off of it by brushing on a pearly off-white, light gold or other delicate color that matches your eyelid color in tone.
  • Apply a dark color on your crease. Use light, little strokes to deposit little bits of darker powder on the crease of your eye. Blend the colors.
  • Apply liquid eyeliner/a liner pencil or even wet eyeshadow on an angled brush to line your eyes.
  • Use an eyelash curler to grip your upper lashes. Apply mascara.
  • Start at the base of your upper lashes and slowly sweep upward. For a more dramatic effect, apply mascara to the lower lashes as well. If you want to apply multiple coats, do it while the first coats of mascara are still wet - applying a new coat to dry mascara will result in clumps.
