Skin & Lab C Plus Brightening Cream
I have been using this cream non-stop until it finally run out on me 2 weeks ago. I talked about Vitamin C being squeezed into your skin regimen recently and Skin & Lab C Plus Brightening fits perfectly, with Vitamin C being one of the main ingredients. I was able to try the sample version of this from my previous wishtrend haul, so when I received the full version for review purposes, I meant business with this product.

Rejoice that Skin & Lab C Plus Brightening doesn’t actually cost an arm and a leg, but price aside, does it actually work?
This was part of my night time skin regiment along with ElishaCoy Snail Cream (as the last step to fully moisturize my face). My daytime routine was hit and miss back then but I was consistent when it comes to using this product before going to bed, that precious time when your skin does most of the work and much more receptive to active ingredients and going through a renewal process. In other words, you’ll see greater results, faster!
Skin & Lab C Plus cream claims to: • Brightens skin tone • Inhibits melanin production • Prevents further damage from UV lights • Restores brightness and clarity
WHAT’S IT LIKE & BEST FOR WHO?
This cream is almost gel-like and has a cloudy appearance with a slight citrusy smell. I love the fact that it has this cooling effect when applied, perfect for calming any redness on your skin. It gets absorbed rather quickly so I wouldn’t depend on this in terms of keeping your face moisturized — hence I still used another cream to top it off — especially if you have dry to very dry skin condition. Other than that, this is great for all skin types. Just a heads up that this might sting a little especially if applied after you just cleansed your face, but take it as the cream working its wonders on your skin, unless of course, you end up breaking out!
Surprisingly, this product contains preservatives (to retain Vitamin C’s & other main ingredients effectiveness — see full ingredients list) so if you’re trying to avoid this type of ingredients as it might irritate your skin, then this cream might not be for you.
Taken under different lighting. If you’re wondering why the right side of my face only, it’s because this is the most affected area! Strangely enough, I don’t have this issue on the left side of my face at all! (First frame was taken after I had a face mask, so my skin looks oily, when it’s actually wet.)
Apart from big pores issues, I ended up with these dark spots when I had a massive breakout after giving birth. I tried many creams (bought a whitening cream from The Face Shop, which broke me out even more!) but none of them really made any difference to the spots appearance.
Notice the difference? My pores dramatically changed after I started using ElishaCoy 3D Spin Cleaner, but the result of using Skin & Lab C Plus is clearly visible in the first frame below as well.
For a 30 ml to last almost 4 months with constant use, I’m very surprised! The last frame of the After Photos was taken about 2 weeks ago (I run out of the cream by then) after I just cleansed my face, so you might have noticed the little patch of redness below my cheek. Like I said, my skin is annoyingly sensitive.
Is it safe to say that this product actually works? I had high hopes for Skin & Lab C Plus Brightening Cream, and this didn’t disappoint. In fact, I was very surprised to find out that this contains preservatives that used to irritate my skin before, but what’s going on? I didn’t get any reaction nor irritation from using this at all — just positive results! Very strange. I’m sure you have your own opinion on this product however, if you’re looking for results and doesn’t get any irritation from the preservatives, then for this price, it might be worth trying plus a little goes a long way!
