Tuesdays iWANT #20 - CUSkincare!

Tuesday, February 01, 2011


Before I begin on today's TiW, I'd just like to thank everyone who has voted for me for the Bio-essence Superblogger Challenge!

The results are out, and unfortunately, I didn't manage to garner the most number of votes, and therefore missed out the chance on winning the ticket to Korea. :( But that being said, I think the contest was a brilliant experience and opened the door for me to learn more about skincare, and knowing more bloggers! :D

Today's TiW is another skincare contest organized by CUSkin.

 

CUSkin is the best cosmecutical corporation in Korea that develops and retails cosmetic line for troubled skin based on clinical research for 9 years. 

In short for Clean Up Skin, CUSkin's skin care line does not only provide basic skin care, but rather, they claim that they can help actual skin improvements.

The kind people from CUSkin very recently sent me 2 different sample sachets to try out: Clean Up Pure Whitening Cream to use at night after my skincare regime, and Whitening and Wrinkle-repair BB Cream for the morning day-out.




The CU Pure Whitening Cream contains arbutin skin whitening cream that not only inhibits the production of melanin, it decreases the existing pigmentation as well.

All you need to do, is to apply it after cleansing and toning your face. Easy!


Before application, you can see that there are a few spots of pigmentation on my face. In honesty though, I'm glad that my freckles have gone lighter over the years. It used to be so much worse I tell you.


The cream looks a little thick here but when you spread them out, they get absorbed in no time, leaving no oily streaks across the face. I like!

I split the application over two days... I'd have gone for more days if the sachet was bigger!


Two days later, it can be observed that the pigmentations have some what lightened up, and it is harder to spot that much darkness already. Let me put two and two together:


Pretty good difference eh?


This BB Cream is to be used in the day, after your application of sun block and other miscellaneous skincare products before heading out.


Here's the shade when you applied thickly.. All you need to do is to pat and spread until it is blended perfectly into the skin. Here's what you get before and after application:


You can see that there are lesser pigmentations on the right as compared to the left. This is due to the Adenosine and Arbutin found in the BB Cream.

Apart from whitening, both Adenosine and Arbutine can also treat dry and saggy skin, restoring it youth and firmness.


Here's how I look after the application of the BB Cream!

You can join CUSkin's Facebook Page for more information, also, if you'd like, you could vote for me too. If I win, I get to walk away with a 16GB iPad! *exciting*!
