[Sponsored] Palmer's White & Even Range

New products to combat hyper-pigmentation and skin discolouration
Most girls, won't say all girls, or rather some girls, have a few common skin problems. That is one, skin discoloration and pigmentation, which is hard to get rid off, as you age. It gets worse as we age, our skin will age, sometimes even faster than us. Besides aging, some of our skin's pigmentation is not only caused by aging, but also UV exposure, which gets worse as we age. This is a serious condition as I do know there are people who walk under the hot sun without applying sunblock! This is a no-no, even with sunblock, you will need to reapply now and then as some sunblock has only + to ++.

This kind of pigmentation is known as hyper pigmentation, where skin gets discolouration and it does not just happen when you age, but it can happen to anyone. Usually people who apply sunblock will only apply the face, where the sun exposure is higher, but they tend to forget the neck, shoulder, lips and hands. There's where sun damages can be found too, besides the face.

Besides UV exposure, hyper pigmentation can also be caused by severed dryness in skin, acne scarring, hormones changes from pregnancy, birth-control pills and hormone replacement therapy. So how does hyper pigmentation form?
UV rays will cause melanin to be over-produced. 
So to battle that situation we will need to reduce or remove the over-produced melanin, through topical creams.
Resolve the problem through application
Hyper pigmentation comes in many forms, some forms would be sun spots, age spots like freckles, Melasma and mask of pregnancy. To avoid that Palmer's has come out with their new range, White & Even range.

Dark Spot Corrector & CBB Cream 
This range, there are nine different products, ranging from cleanser to cbb cream for face, body milk for body, hand cream to protect your hands. All of these products contains unique skin tone correcting formula and it is formulated with an advanced blend of potent yet gentle ingredient that reduce hyper-pigmentation.

For those who have concerns with sensitive skin or too oily skin, worry not, this range is suitable for all skin types and as usual, Palmer's products are free from parabens, phthalates, sulphates, hash dyes and synthetics dyes.

White & Even: Dark Spot Corrector
For this range, I am going to focus on two of their products, White & Even Dark Spot Corrector and White & Even CBB Cream.
White & Even: CBB Cream

Both products contain contains the following to whiten and tone enhancing.

As we all know, Palmer's main ingredient for all their products is Cocoa Butter and in order to lighten age spots, besides repairing, restoring, they have added in Synovea into this range. 
Why Synovea?
With that said, this is the first time I've seen Synovea being used in dark spot correcting products and Dark Sport Corrector's main target will be to reduce dark spots, age spots, post-acne scars and sun damage.

My skin discolouration falls under he post-acne scars, which are quite visible even from far. And recently, I've gotten more break-outs around the jaw area, which are quite pretty visible and quite hard to remove.

Here is Dark Spot Corrector, to target dark spots, as the name suggested, age spots, post-acne scars (that's what I need) and also sun damage. Besides those 6 main ingredients for the range, Dark Spot Corrector also contains Songyi Mushroom, a Japanese mushroom which is known for its pigment-perfecting properties.
The packaging is compact that it is easy to bring it while I'm traveling.
After reading the instructions, it looks simple and none-skin harming. So I've decided to give it a try. For people who don't like to apply skincare that has smell may not like this product though. This actually contains fresh white lily fragrance, which will make you feel more refreshed after applying and smell nicer def (hehe).

This is my face before using Dark Spot Corrector.
Pardon for the horrible red outbreaks. :( 
As visible as my eyes, the post-acne scars are on the neck and my nose. And the uneven squinting on the right side of my face (left on the pic) is actually my birthmark.

This is after using for 2 weeks.
After 2 weeks, post-acne scars are less visible
Been using it daily in order to see the results and you can see that the acne scare has lighten quite a bit. My overall complexion has also lighten up. But it has not completely remove the acne scare as this product requires daily application for 4-6 weeks for the new skin cells to rise to the surface.

We have all heard about BB Cream, CC Cream but I've never heard CBB Cream before. This CBB Cream, Correcting Beauty Balm also helps in targeting discolouration and hyper-pigmentation. Not only that, it also provides natural pigment-perfecting coverage and SPF 15 to protect your skin against the sun rays to prevent darkening of skin again. Like the Dark Spot Corrector, this CBB Cream also contains Fresh White Lily Fragrance.
Correcting Beauty Balm with SPF 15
This is my face before applying the CBB Cream, I was excited to try it out since it can also act as a primer for my foundation. Also, it is naturally tinted in colour to create even skin tone.
Before applying the CBB Cream 
My skintone is uneven and there are spots of post-acne and wells, dark eye circles. And the following photo is after application of CBB Cream, I wore it alone without any foundation over it.
The skintone looks more even here
After applying, my skin tone looks even and it doesn't feel sticky, unlike many other brands. Also it does lightweight coverage on my dark eye circles, as I feel it looks less visible after application. My skin feel refreshed after applying and I could just carry on with my make up the whole day with this acting as a primer. But if I am out the whole day, then I would probably apply sunblock first before using CBB Cream since it only has SPF 15 sunscreen. Which, I would say it is not enough to protect my skin the whole day.

Also, if you do not use sunscreen that is strong enough with the CBB Cream or during the period while you are using the dark spot corrector, the effects from both products won't be effective. As it carries on to over-produce melanin and even with the white & even range, it will take 4-6 weeks for it  the new cells to surface up.

And stopping the usage of white & even range will allow over-production of melanin to resume and dark spots will return. Looks like I have to be hardworking, not to skip any steps, especially the sunblock!

Both Dark Spot Corrector and CBB Cream can be found at all Watsons, Guardian, BHG, Robinsons, John Little, Essential Pharmacy, Nishino Pharmacy, all leading pharmacies, departmental and cosmetics stores. Dark Spot Corrector is priced at $29.90/30ml and CBB Cream is priced at $22.90/30ml.
