Whitening Tips Comparison : Home Remedies VS Whitening Product (L'Oreal White Perfect Total 10)

Whitening Tips Comparison : Home Remedies VS Whitening Product (L'Oreal White Perfect Total 10)

Hey guys, today I am going to do something rather different from my usual beauty post which to share my thought on whitening tips in term of the home remedies whitening tips and those whitening products in store. Basically you can expect to see a comparison or battle between..

Whitening Tips
Home Remedies VS Whitening Products (L'Oreal White Perfect Total 10)


There is plenty home remedies available which you can easily find in books or in the net for skin whitening and the most common ones, I would say is making facial mask with Yogurt, Oatmeal, Lemon, Honey, Walnut and etc. In the other hand, speaking about whitening products available in the market, there is no doubt that there are hundreds and thousands available to cater for everyone's need ranging from the counter brands to all the drugstore brands. So out of many of the home remedies and whitening products we can find, in this post I will share my thought in comparing this home remedy whitening facial mask that I use occasionally (Yogurt, Lemon and Oatmeal) and also the L'Oreal White Perfect Total 10 Day Cream Moisturizer which has just launched in the market. 

The comparison will be done in term of the functions, skin type, whitening result, price and availability.


FUNCTIONS


Yogurt, Lemon Juice & Oatmeal Mask 

The facial mask by itself act as a skin brightening mask and the oatmeal helps in exfoliating skin naturally and gently. As for the yogurt and lemon juice, it helps in removing blemishes because of its mild bleaching effect. Upon cleansing, you can also scrub your mask to remove dead skin on face

L'Oreal White Perfect Total 10 Day Cream Moisturizer 

L'Oreal White Perfect Total 10 comes with 10 benefits that gives an intense whitening and full protection for skin which includes - instant glow, fairer skin, even tone, anti-dark spots, anti-shine effect, anti-pollution, anti-UVA, anti-UVB, anti-oxydation and anti-oiliness effect. 


SKIN TYPE


Yogurt, Lemon Juice & Oatmeal Mask 

Suitable for dry and combination skin, but if you have a combination skin (Oily T-zone) like me, then you'll find your T-zone gets oily after using this because this facial mask doesn't provide the moisturizing benefit. So please do apply moisturizer after using the facial mask.

L'Oreal White Perfect Total 10 Day Cream Moisturizer 

The L'Oreal White Perfect Total 10 is suitable for all skin types ranging from oily to dry and as well as combination. 


WHITENING RESULT


Yogurt, Lemon Juice & Oatmeal Mask 

There will be an instant whitening result after using the facial mask but it doesn't give a whitening result in a long run. It also tend to dry up my skin, giving me an oily T-zone within minutes. Since it dries up my skin, so I will always apply intense hydration cream after washing the mask off.

L'Oreal White Perfect Total 10 Day Cream Moisturizer 

This doesn't provide the instant whitening result like the facial mask, I personally find my skin slightly fairer skin and less oily only after a week or two of using. After applying the L'Oreal White Perfect Total 10 on my face, there was a slight white cast on face but after a few minutes, when it has been fully absorbed into my skin, I get the smooth and slightly matte texture on skin.

Blending L'Oreal White Perfect Total 10 Day Cream Moisturizer


For a long run, I think the L'Oreal White Perfect Total 10 would be more suitable to be used for skin brightening as it has the properties not only protect skin from darkening but also moisturizing formula for oil-control - just what I need to get a shine free T-zone. 


PRICE


Yogurt, Lemon Juice & Oatmeal Mask 

A Natural Yogurt RM 1.70 for 140g, Lemon RM 0.99 each, Oat RM 7.00 for 500g and it will come to a Total of RM 9.69.

L'Oreal White Perfect Total 10 Day Cream Moisturizer 

Available from June 2014 RM 39.90 for 50ml.


AVAILABILITY


Yogurt, Lemon Juice & Oatmeal Mask 

Leading Supermarket & Grocery Stores (eg. Giant, Tesco, AEON Big, Cold Storage and etc)

L'Oreal White Perfect Total 10 Day Cream Moisturizer 

Leading Pharmacies & Department Stores (eg. Guardian, Watson and etc)

Whether it's Home Remedies or Whitening Products, they have their properties in giving us the brighter skin but for Home Remedies, you are advise to follow up with moisturizer or sunblock before heading out since it doesn't comes with hydration nor UV protection, unlike some of the Whitening Products available which has the properties of whitening, hydration and perhaps even with UV protection.

So do let me know are you Team Home Remedies or Team Whitening Products ? :)
