Powerful Whitening for Tough Skin!

Ok, I have just discovered my holy grail for total whitening that works! Last year, I attended the launch of the new clinic of CLARENCE CENTRE. One of their giveaways was an upgraded formula of their Total Whitening Gel.

I have been looking for a really strong whitening product for my neck area. I was hoping this would work since it was formulated by a dermatologist so I took a chance and used it religiously for 2 weeks.

Clarence Total Whitening Gel 30ml, PhP 1,500

I have never tried their old formula so I don't really know what they mean about "Upgraded". Not quite sure which ingredients they added so I just take their word for it.

I love their packaging. Considering that this is the house brand of Clarence, their packaging is not cheap plastic, they're actually quite sturdy that's why I like it.


The pump really works too. A single pump dispenses the right amount of product. And no product goes to waste. I just hate it when a whole chunk of the product percentage goes to waste.


It's gel like consistency is not sticky at all like some whitening gels I have tried in the past. This one has a slightly runny consistency but not so much that it just seeps through the cracks in between your fingers. I love that you can easily control the gel when you apply it.


I am over weight. Yeah yeah, I know I have to go back to working out but that's not the point. LOL Being overweight gives unattractive pigmentation around the neck, the elbows, knees, thighs and underarms. I have had this problem ever since I gained weight about 4 years ago, and I have tried every whitening product in the market known to man.

I don't use loofas because the continuous scrubbing makes the pigmentation worse so I resulted to whitening lotions and peeling scrubs like Cure. They would keep the darkening at bay -it didn't improve, but it didn't worsen either.


I finally decided to use this lightening gel when I finished the whitening lotion I was using. Before I give a review on this product, I would like to let you know that I continued with my regimen:
1. Peeling scrub (Cure) twice a week.
2. I would use oil to clean the area. I read that this loosens the dirt on the thick skin.
3. Use whitening soaps in the bath (no loofa)
4. I would use an astringent to clean my neck area -to remove excess soap residue, oil and remaining dirt.
5. Apply whitening product -in this case, Clarence Total Whitening Gel.
You may think that 30ml is such a small bottle, but this extra strength formula makes whitening faster and you only need a little to cover the area. Just apply on the whole neck and then let it get completely absorbed before dressing up.


You can see that my neck area is visibly smoother and not to mention WHITER. This photo absolutely has no editing whatsoever. I just brightened up the photo because I took a photo in the bathroom where it's dark.

The line's on my neck is also less visible which I love. I have been looking for a product like this in so long! There are still areas that are dark but I'm sure with prolonged use, my neck will restore its youthful, fair appearance.

HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS:


PROS
  • Fast results!
  • Makes the skin visibly smoother and fair.
  • Has a menthol feel but it doesn't sting.
  • Gel consistency makes it easy to apply.
  • A little product goes a very long way.
  • Fragrance free, but it smells like alcohol (quickly evaporates).
  • Pricey but worth it.
  • Slows down the growth of hair! Perfect to use on the underarm area.
  • Non-greasy.
  • Fast absorbing.
  • Dermatologist formulated.


CONS
  • Pricey but worth it.
  • Not easily accessible. Available in Clarence Centres only.


Will I re-purchase? Yes.
Will I recommend it? Yes.


MY OVERALL RATING: ★★★★★

    1. Hi Sweetie! Well, CLARENCE is a dermatological clinic here in Manila, and their products are mixed by the derma herself so I don't think they have it available outside of Metro Manila :( What you can do though is maybe have someone buy from their clinic and ship it to you! This is my HG of whitening! ♥
