Hi guys!! I’ve received requests to share how I whiten my skin, and I thought I would make a post sharing a few products that I use for whitening my face. Let’s go~
Here is my face after I shower. I’ve been really busy, so I haven’t been sticking much to my routine at all. These days I’ve basically just been removing my makeup, showering, and then going straight to bed. During the day, I haven’t had time to wear any face makeup either, so I’ve gotten a lot tanner from all the lack of SPF. (I also went to camp last weekend and tanned a few noticeable shades from that. More on camp in future posts!)
My favorite whitening products! As you can see, they are all Asian. It’s really hard to find whitening products in America that are for the entire face, not just whitening or bleaching of certain spots of evening of discolorations.
The product on the very left is from Maybelline Shanghai. It’s called “White Refine” and is basically this amazing whitening lotion. I love the packaging and the smell, and it works wonders!
The next product is a Japanese whitening toner. (Hada Labo). This toner works well too, but I noticed it’s a lot better when it’s not used on it’s own, and instead used on top of another whitening lotion.
The third product is my absolute favorite whitening product. It gives you instant results. Introducing POND’S pure white facial wash!!! This facial wash literally whitens your skin among contact, so that’s fucking awesome. This one is also from Shanghai. They sell these in all drugstores and department stores in Shanghai. There’s actually an entire line of Pond whitening facial washes, but I think this one works especially well.
The last product is an Olay Natural white cream. This product is pretty good too! It’s really moisturizing as well, so I like to use it when my skin is feeling drier 😀
I have a post of some Asian beauty products here: http://www.allygong.com/?p=155
Here is a picture of my skin that I took after my shower. I use the Ponds whitening face wash in my showers, and it works soo well. I’m in love with that product. Honestly since it’s from China it probably has some sort of illegal poisonous substance in it, which shocks your skin and makes it whiter, but there’s at least there’s a visible difference so… LOL

So that is my whitening routine! I start using these products whenever I notice myself getting too tan, but I don’t use these products on a consistent basis throughout the year, mostly because it’s 12 by the time I get out of the shower, and all I want to do is be with my pillow and bed asap.
Hope you guys enjoyed this post! Feel free to share any methods you find effective or ask me any questions!
