Before & After
Esfolio Snow Whitening Cream Review
Packaging – It comes in a frosted squeeze tube with pump. I think this makes sure you get the most out of it compared to bottle-pumps. It’s compact enough to carry with you in your purse. It also disperses in small amount so it’s economical.
Texture – Slippery, smooth, and I assume because of the silicone content. It’s silky to apply and dries matte. Unlike other creams that are sticky. You don’t have to set this one with powder, because it sets like powder.
Ingredients – From niacinamide to hydrolyzed collagen. As I mentioned above. Promising but after 2 weeks of use, I don’t see any long-term effects or something that stuck to my skin even without wearing this.
Does it work? As an instant skin perk-me-up or skin brightener, a definite YES. But don’t expect any miraculous long-term whitening/brightening effects. I suggest taking oral whitening supplements if that’s the case.
Final Thoughts – I’ve been using this on a daily basis that I think I’m almost out (2 weeks). It costs less than a thousand pesos, and is the perfect product if I want to look extra but subtle on a date or event. If you’re always puyat, haggard from school or office work but you want to look naturally “woke-up-fresh-like-this”. This is the product for you.
