I was bought this for my christmas present years ago as my sister flew through Hong Kong, and I enjoyed it so much that I stock up on it when ever I can find it.
* What is it exactally?*
It is a facial moisturiser. You use it morning and night as the last step in your beauty routine. The "White" range is designed for sun damaged skin and promises to whiten your skin and get rid of sun spots.
* How to apply*
Very simply just push down the top and you will get a large pea size amount for each push. I find one or two pushes is enough. The pack comes with a cap to prevent the top being pushed down accidentally, unfortunatally I always loose the cap, so i can never travel with this even though it is travel size. In later models they could improve it by having a top that locked when you turned it.
Once you have the moisturiser you just spread it on your face and your skin will absorb it.
It comes in a smart white box with silver writing. I always throw away the box as cardboard and bathroom does not mix. The bottle is an attractive slim white bottle with silver writing and a cap (30ml). It goes very well in the bathroom and is very easy to place with all of your other items.
In Singapore airport I found two different ones. Normal/Dry and Normal/Oily, so you can get one to match your skin. I have normal to oily skin and I have found other products make it feel very sticky, but this seemed to match my skin perfectly.
*How it feels*
It is quite milky and oil free. It glides on very easily and quickly sinks in. I tend to put more on before bed and less on in the morning. It works well under foundation and I actually need less foundation as it smooths on over it, but does not effect the longeity of the foundation. It feels quite refreshing after cleansing which can make my face feel tight. I also sometimes use it just on its own in the afternoon if my face feels dry.
*Does it work?*
On the moisturising front then yes it definatally hydrates my skin and makes it feel super smooth. On the brightening front then I find it does, although I have white skin I have sun damage on my cheecks and I find it does reduce them. It doesn't work on freckles though.
Please don't hurt your self but..... £48 for 30ml. Yes told you it was expensive. But you can buy it duty free and you can fly with it as it is under 100ml.
In England, hopeless. I went round all of the clinique stores in Sheffield and Leeds, including Harvey Nicks and nothing! It is widly avalible in Asia and I hear it is avlible in London, but as it is so expensive then I buy it when flying.
*Is it worth it?*
I don't think you should ever schrimp on skin care, food or beds. It does reduce my sun spots, it does feel very nice on your skin and it does make my skin soft and smooth. So for me that's a yes.
