Review : Hype Gluta-C Intense Whitening Day Cream

A friend recommended this to me when my HG moisturiser Nivea Fluid SPF 15 got OOS. She has sensitive skin and she's hiyang with this. I bought a tube to see if it works for me...


PRODUCT INFO from HYPE:
Multiple whitening and anti-aging benefits bring your skin to its maximum potential. With Glutathione, Kojic Acid, Vitamins A, C, E and Shea Butter to intensely whiten, minimize minor blemishes and age spots. Made in the Philippines.

TEST FOR COMPATIBILITY : Apply a small amount of cream on a small area of skin below the ear or the neck for three consecutive days. If you don't experience skin irritation, you may safely use the cream on your face. If redness occurs, discontinue use and consult your dermatologist.

RETAIL PRICE: Php 249.75. Available in Watsons and department stores nationwide.

NET WEIGHT : 40 ml


PROS:
* non-greasy, absorbs easily
* this is also good as makeup base.
* lightweight
* cream is unscented
* with SPF 25 and anti-oxidants yey!
* been using this for more than a year and I didn't break out
* minimizes my dark pimple marks (don't expect dramatic results in just a few days of use)
* inexpensive! 1 bottle lasts me for 4-5 mos.
* no whitish cast

* i love the airless pump packaging! If you have moisturisers/foundations in a jar you can transfer the contents into the empty Hype container. Tried it and it works!


CONS:
* can't think of any =)


TIPS:
I apply this after I wash my face in the morning. Though this moisturiser is absorbed quickly, I still wait for 5 minutes before applying
other makeup products on my face (e.g. primer, foundation). I also bought their Toner Spritz, still testing it if doesn't break me out. Will let you know...

ADDICTION FACTOR:
This is mg HG moisturiser! I'm on my 4th bottle now.

RATING :
5 / 5

Thanks for the recommendation, Khymm. I recently ran out but not too keen on buying more of the same brand. I just might try this.

Thanks for recommending this moisturizer. I'm getting tired of using Myra-E / Olay since I'm not getting the results I like.

Yey for beauty! :) Appreciate if you can add our new blog to your roll! Cheers! peachypinksisters.blogspot.com
