A lot of you know that I really love my L'egere BB Purifying Facial Peeling Gel to bits. I decided to try something else from this brand; their Whitening Solution™ serum. Apparently, this product was highly recommended by Queen TV Show in Taiwan.

Originally developed by a dermatologist, the Legere Instant Whitening Facial Mask is enriched with Ellagic Acid, Arbutin & AA-2G which is a stable and extremely effective skin lightening treatment. It quickly promotes lightening of skin and provides an even tone on all skin types.

Especially added with Nano 99.99 Gold and 100% Natural Hyaluronic Acid, it can have anti-aging, moisturizing, repairing effect.

This special serum wil help to
- Lighten your overall skin color
- Reduce the appearance of dark spots and discolorations
- It is recommended for all types of non-sensitive skin including oily and problem skin. (- on imomoko & package)
This serum is supposed be really hydrating as its said to contain 100% Hyaluronic Acid. I don't necessarily find this to be true as I always have to use my emulsion/moisturizer on top. Within the first use, I saw an instant brightening effect which I really liked. It absorbed well into the skin fairly quickly. The serum didn't feel heavy or sticky as I massaged this onto my skin. I liked how this gave my skin a natural glow. Its directed to use this serum everyday twice a day then follow up with sunscreen. I personally only used this at night as I found that it starts to ball up when I apply my moisturizer. The only moisturizers I've found that works with this serum are the lighter type of moisturizers - like my Laneige Balancing Emulsion. Anything thicker didn't work too well.

After hitting the one month mark, I started to notice that the brightening effect wasn't as dramatic as when I first used it. That was a major bummer for me as my skin can be quite dull and sallow. I think this works better on fresh/new scars because it faded the few I had on my cheek. My deeper scars didn't fade at all. It did even out my overall skin tone, but nothing amazing. As for whitening, I didn't notice anything. I did like how smooth and softer my skin felt after using this though.

The bottle has a dropper where you can squeeze (from the nozzle shown above). This is a nice way to not waste product and prevent too much air going into the bottle. The serum does contain gold flecks though you can't see it in the pictures. You can't see the flecks when you apply the serum either so no worries about looking like you had glitter placed randomly on your face, haha.

If you're looking for long-term effects for brightening or whitening the skin, this probably isn't something you would want to get. If you want something to use on occasion as quick pick me up, then you can consider trying this out as it won't break the bank. Maybe if I used this twice day as directed, I would get better results, but as it doesn't agree with the other products I'm using I'm unable to test that out. I won't repurchasing this as I really like my Hada Labo Shirojyun Lotion (will review soon, but talked about briefly, here!). I highly recommend that if you're thinking of purchasing, DO NOT put this in direct light. It will ruin the serum. I wasted my first bottle because of this, lol.

Sorry for the long post, I feel cheery and "type-y" today, haha!


  1. I'm glad you mentioned Hada Labo in this post because I'm loving that brand so much!! I don't have the Shirojyun lotion, I'm using the regular lotion whatever it's called but! I do use the Shirojyun milk and that's an amazing product <3

  2. @Ilyana
