Review : The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Whitening Serum
A light serum with Shiso extract and Community Trade organic aloe that blends into the skin, leaving an invisible non-sticky protective film. Suitable for all skin types
Shiso extract reduces early melanin-making signals even before the hyperpigmentation process and melanin production cycle starts - helping prevent uneven skin tone, brown spots and freckles
A friend who is a TBS member, passed me their latest serum which is a 1.5ml sachet that lasts me for 3 days of morning usages. The original 30ml retail size costs $50.90.
The texture falls between light to medium and is more like a serum than a lotion. The white coloured serum is non-sticky and sinks into the skin fast.
I did encounter some redness after using Naruko lotion, followed by this serum but it calmed down within 30 minutes. The whitening effect is not apparent yet, since its just 3 days of usages.
In terms of ingredients, you can check it here. It contains a good amount of Vitamin C, however there is alcohol nearer the bottom of the list.
