Rave: Myra E Vitawhite Whitening Face Lotion

Hello ladies! I'm back after a week of being gone, truly sorry for that! What matters though is that I'm back and I simply can't wait to share to you this product that saved my skin when I was breaking out really bad last summer. I used this in conjunction with my Witch Hazel toner that I previously reviewed about right here. Anyway, this product's called Myra E Whitening Face Lotion. To begin with, I am not really keen when it comes to skin care. I generally had decent skin until my second year in college when I began to see and feel changes, skin wise. What a nightmare, I know!. Must be all the stress, I figured. So last year, I discovered this moisturizer from my cousin  who uses this religiously and who, up to now, has super nice skin. So being the always intrigued person that I am, I bought this immediately when my mum and I were doing groceries at our local supermarket.

So here's how it looks like:

I've used up different moisturizers in the past but when my skin is breaking out, I go back to this and its only a matter of time till my skin looks healthy again. What's great about this moisturizer is that it sinks in immediately and it doesn't feel heavy on the skin. This product claims to whiten skin and yes, it does whiten my skin, BUT you have to be very patient with this product. Its not an overnight kind of thing so you have to be religious in applying this moisturizer. After a month of using this, I noticed that my face became less dull looking. It has a very nice glow to it and some of the blemishes that I've had began to lighten as well. Very promising, I tell ya!

This also contains an SPF of 15 so its really ideal for day time wear. But if you're the kind who spends a lot of time under the sun, you might want to consider putting a separate sunscreen.

Jem's Thoughts: 

First of all, if you are looking for immediate whitening results, skip this. This isn't meant for that anyway. There are plenty of other drugstore brands if your main concern is to whiten your skin. I, on the other hand, only wanted a moisturizer that will suit my combination skin and fortunately, I did not experience any breakouts while using this. My face looks healthier now and I hardly get any pimples these days. I'm on my 5th tube now, and I even recommended this to my mom who used to be an Olay user. Now she's a convert! In fact this was the first product she threw in her bag when she went on a trip to Jordan. She must really love this one, huh? Well that makes two of us! Love love love this product and I definitely would recommend! :)
