Shu Uemura Whitefficient Whitening Emulsion

Moisturiser is another essential beauty vanity for "I'm Every Woman". Invest in one please ladies, I would definitely highly recommend, yet I know how tricky and confusing it can be to get your hands on a suitable moisturiser. A highly concentrated moisturiser may break up your skin, whereas a mild moisturiser may not provide enough hydration for suppleness. For my sensitive-combination skin, it has been quite a journey. Various moisturisers I've tried, unfortunately, most of them actually broke up my skin. So, you can blame me. I am really apprehensive when buying and I tend to buy at beauty counters because the beauty advisers are there for you to seek opinion, to ask questions and to specifically suggest moisturisers for your age and skin type

Because Shu Uemura products has been so far doing well for me (Shu Uemura Skin Purifier Pore Clarifying Foaming Cleansing Water and Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil), albeit I know its a pretty pricey brand, but considering their products efficiently and effectiveness, I purchased this whitening emulsion.  

Product Description  
This emulsion cream is a whitening emulsion that enrobes the skin with intense moisture. The emulsion is formulated with a Mito-White Complex and whitening actives, to limit melanin production and transfer and help to boost the creation of the brighter newborn skin cells by improving the metabolism of epidermal cells and protecting the mitochondria (the energy of skin) against oxidative stress caused by UV for visibly luminous skin and less visible spots.

Fruit acid mix, adenosine, caffeine extract, prune extract, depsea water™, vitamin C derivative, ellagic acid and ceramide white™
Skin type: all skin types
To use: Apply to face & neck as the final skincare.
Size: 75ml/2.5oz     
Shu Uemura Whitefficient Whitening Emulsion comes in a solid slender glass bottle with a cover and a pump. To use, press the pump to release the emulsion on your palm, then dot it on the face and spread evenly. For me, one pump of this light and non-sticky emulsion is sufficient and I quite like its faint musky floral scent. It absorbs quite fast with the right level of moisture to prep my skin to receive sunblock and compact powder in the morning, it also acts as my night cream. Emulsion did not trigger any kind of discomfort, neither did it cause my t-zone to be shiny or greasy.

Other than that, I can't think of any other plus or minus points, overall, I am quite pleased with this emulsion which does keep my skin hydrated and supple. Most importantly, thank god, it does not break me up. However, even after using it for a month now, honestly, I don't get it how this emulsion is suppose to lighten and illuminate my skin. I honestly don't have the answer. Moreover, because I use it twice a day, most probably I need to purchase another one in 4 months time. Also, I have to think first if I should stay true to Shu Uemura Whitefficient Whitening Emulsion because its price eats up into  my budget. Perhaps, I should open my doors of option to other affordable moisturizers from other brands.   

Take care beauties. Don't forget to trend alongside "beauty with nava-k"on every other social media please!!
