Hello hello! :D
There are days (months even) when Mommy dearest does not step into the parlour for skin indulgence. On the bright side is the fact that she gets to use a variety of home-made face treatments, but on the down side is that her face rarely even gets a massage.
So that's why this baby was bought, after screening multiple massage creams. That tiny 'visible results in just 7 days' claim intrigued us all, and considering that she was already using the Micro-emulsion from this range, we decided to give it a go!
Did it live up to its claim? Well, you'll have to read on to find out :)
The range claims to Lighten, Whiten, and Brighten the skin. Brighten yes, but the whitening claim is something none of us should fall for regardless of the product/brand being purchased. The whiteglow range relies on Grape Extract, Mulberry Extract, Milk Enzyme and Saxifraga Extract to deliver results. The details are printed on the outer package, which you can see above.
As you can see, the whitening claim is restricted to reducing dark spots. I would have rather preferred the company putting emphasis on this instead of using the 'whitening' gimmick that Indian fall for so easily. It's not something that's going to make you all gori in a week! That is never going to happen, and we might as well make our peace with it.
The product comes in a slightly heavy glass jar with a silver screw-on cap. The silver looks the teeniest bit tacky, but let's ignore that. There is also a white plastic lid beneath to prevent spillage. The cap closes tightly, and overall the jar feels sturdy enough to withstand travelling.
The cream itself is on the thicker side, with the texture being creamy. It's not oily though, just creamy, and spreads well. Massaging becomes very easy with this, your fingers will move smoothly over your skin even without trying!
After 10 minutes or so, the cream gets absorbed into the skin. The time will vary depending upon the quantity you use and how vigorous your massaging technique is.
Now I don't think anybody massages their face 7 days a week, so I can't really share my thoughts on the company's claim. However, I do notice a nice glow after using it. Skin looks quite hydrated and soft, a very youthful look. That's enough to keep Mom happy, and that's all that matters :)
This hasn't been tested on oily skin, so if any of you have your experience to share, don't hesitate to leave a comment below! On my Mom's dry skin, it works wonderfully and doesn't break her out. I should say that she doesn't have problematic skin as such.
