Not long ago, I was selected as a tester for Senka’s white Beauty Lotion II from Senka’s Junpaku line through home Tester Club Malaysia. This range of products has only just launched on Hermo this week.

What is it?According lớn their brochure, it’s a dual-purpose product — a moisturizing lotion & whitening essence in one bottle. You’re supposed khổng lồ use it after the cleansing step in your skincare routine and they recommend tapping the lotion into your skin until it is fully absorbed instead of using a cốt tông pad lớn apply it.

Price:It costs about JPY693 on Amazon japan for a 200ml bottle. That’s roughly RM25 per bottle or RM0.125 per ml. However, it retails at at RM49.90 on Hermo.

Its claims?- For fully moisturized and translucent skin- Long-lasting moisturizing effect- Prevents dryness and rough skin- Prevents dark spots and freckles- Fragrance & colorant free

Main Ingredients:- Sakura Extract- Double Hyaluronic Acid- Rice Bran, Honey and White Silky Cocoon Extracts- m-Tranexamic Acid

You can refer khổng lồ Ratzilla Cosme for the full ingredients list.

Apparently “m-Tranexamic Acid” was developed by Shiseido (the parent company of Senka) và is approved by the Ministry of Health, Labour & Welfare of Japan. Shiseido claims that this ingredient reduces inflammation of dark spots while reducing pigmentation. The “m” in m-Tranexamic Acid stands for melanocytes, which are basically cells in our skin which produce melanin. So m-Tranexamic Acid works by inhibiting the activation of melanocytes in particular.

Review:At a glance, it seems very similar khổng lồ Hada Labo’s Shirojyun Lotion which I’m currently using in my night routine. So, to demo this hàng hóa out, I used it in place of my usual Hada Labo lotion và Cosrx Galactomyces essence for 7 days.

AM routineSenka Perfect Whip Cleanser > Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Toner > IOPE Bio Essence > Senka trắng Beauty Lotion II > The Ordinary Niacinamide + Zinc > Kikumasamune Emulsion > Skin Aqua Sarafit Essence SPF 50+

PM routineHada Labo Cleansing Oil > Hada Labo AHA + BHA Face Wash (Oil Control) > Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Toner > IOPE Bio Essence> Actives or Vit C Serum> Senka white Beauty Lotion II > Kikumasamune Emulsion > Sheet Mask

Texture-wise, it isn’t your typical “Japanese lotion” which is the equivalent of a toner in Western beauty. It’s not as fluid as Hada Labo’s lotions but it’s not as rich và heavy as a cream. I would definitely say that this lotion feels a lot more lượt thích an emulsion. If you’ve ever tried Kikumasamune’s emulsion, the texture is almost identical.

There is a very, very faint alcohol-like scent to the product but it’s barely noticeable. I’m quite indifferent towards fragrances in my skincare products unless it’s overbearing. This didn’t bother me at all.

So, the sản phẩm claims that your skin is supposed lớn get “a white và luminous lit-from-within glow with each application” while providing deep hydration. I think it’s pretty clear that when Japanese or Korean beauty products claim to “whiten” your skin, it really just brightens & evens out your complexion. So don’t expect this product to lighten your skin by a few shades.

I didn’t notice any drastic brightening effects from the lotion, at least not within the 7-day trial period, because I’m already using multiple products that are already pretty effective at brightening the skin such as TO’s vi-ta-min C (though I actually hate the greasiness and grittiness of this Vit C serum), TO’s Niacinamide và Iope’s FTE.

What I liked about the lotion though, is that it gets absorbed by the skin very quickly & didn’t pill under my makeup. It’s lightweight, which I really appreciate as I have oily/combination skin and I live in a very hot & humid country all year round. However, it definitely isn’t moisturizing enough. You’d definitely need khổng lồ apply a moisturizer after this lotion, especially if you have dry skin or work in an office environment with the air-conditioning on all day.

Thankfully, it didn’t cause any breakouts or closed comedones (CCs) as I tend struggle with CCs when products are too heavy for my skin.

To be honest, I quite lượt thích cutting down the lotion & essence steps in my skincare routine & replacing it with this single product. But that being said, I don’t think I will be replacing my Hada Labo lotions with this Senka lotion. I still prefer my trusty old Hada Labo Shirojyun lotion that I’m used to which I find just as hydrating và has proven to even out my skin tone over the last 8 months I’ve used it.
