Review: Bio-Essence Tanaka White Series with




6 days ago, I received the full sized bottles of the Bio-Essence Tanaka White 4X Intensive White Serum and Double Whitening Day Cream SPF 20
With a continued daily usage in the past 6 days, the 1st morning was the most surprising when I woke up and saw the effects of the combination of the serum and the cream overnight. I held back a little after seeing my face in the mirror, it was significantly fairer such that the difference even shocked me.
The difference was maintained over the next few days and I guess I eventually got used to it~

This May 2014, Bio-essence introduces its new and improved Tanaka White range, specially formulated to better address dark spots and uneven skin tone with a reinvented 4X Intensive White Serum containing alpha-Arbutin that is 9X more powerful – so powerful, skin whitening has never been more flawless and effective.

I also use it under my BB Cream.
