Three Products that Make Your Skin Glow!

Makeup in Manila Maj Valencia Products that Make Your Skin Glow

I'm missing my bridal glow. 

I never actually believed in it until everyone I met with during my wedding preps kept telling how beautiful I am, how great I looked, how I had this bridal glow. I thought that thing was a myth, but it seemed to be true.

After four months, my skin looked pretty dull and dead, so I'm ready to get my glow on again and share with you my secret weapons...

White Wedding Dream Cream Review

1) Banila Co White Wedding Dream Cream
Delivers an instant brightening effect and a surge of moisture to keep the skin in its best condition for a crystal-clear bright-washed complexion.

Banila Co White Wedding Dream Cream Review
This is one of the most amazing creams I've ever used in my life.

The packaging is very high-end, mirror-like, and the lid looks gorgeous. I also appreciate that the lid really shuts close and it seems to keep the freshness of the cream inside. It feels like a heavy moisturizer on skin and it applies very smooth all over the face and neck. 

The product looks just like a white cream and it doesn't have any glitters or shimmers in it, but let me tell you that this definitely gives you an instant glow. I prefer using this at night as a moisturizer/sleeping pack and I just wake up with luminous skin. It really has this instant glow effect which lasts upon everyday usage. 

I feel like this product works best for dry to normal skin as an everyday moisturizer, and for people who sport oily-combination skin like me, a moisturizer/sleeping pack at night. You can use this sparingly as a highlighter for your cheekbones, as a day-moisturizer, and you can also mix this with your foundation if you feel like your face looks really dull. 

I believe that this White Wedding Dream Cream is one of Banila Co's best-selling products and I gotta tell you, it really delivers what it promises. Use this at night and you'll definitely wake up with luminous skin. 

YEHWADAM Pure Brightening Serum Review

2) The Face Shop YEHWADAM Pure Brightening Serum
The silky lightening serum deeply hydrates the skin and reduces the appearance of age spots and pigmentation with the help of pearl powder.

Yehwadam Brightening is an anti-aging skincare line that brightens skin while providing moisture with the help of traditional Korean herbs, ginseng and flowers. Yehwadam products are made with natural Korean ingredients processed by traditional methods passed down from one generation to another.

The Face Shop YEHWADAM Pure Brightening Serum Review
If you're more into serums than creams, The Face Shop's got you covered. The YEHWADAM Pure Brightening Serum comes in a heavy plastic bottle with a pump. It looks very simple, high-end, and the cap's design looks very intricate and it reminds me of old Korean dramas. I imagine that only the kings and queens used this back in the day and this might have been the reason why their skin looked so dewy.

The product looks just like a simple white cream, but it feels very lightweight and it turns instantly into liquid once applied on to skin. It also smells like floral perfume and it's quite relaxing whenever I use it. 

I think the best part about this product is that it's a serum and you can layer it with other products in your routine. It dries fast with a semi-matte finish and it also moisturizes your skin while helping to brighten your age-spots and blemishes since it's also an anti-aging serum.

If you're looking for a lightweight product that gives you a natural sheen while helping your skin internally, definitely give this a try. I feel this works best on all skin-types, but if your skin still feels dry, you can layer moisturizer on top of this too.

The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution Review

3) THE ORDINARY Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%
Starring a water-soluble derivative of vitamin C, this brightening serum provides antioxidant protection to reduce signs of ageing and even out skin tone. Ascorbyl glucoside is considered a gold standard of vitamin C derivatives, thanks to its high stability and comfortable effects – The Ordinary’s formulation is delivered as an easily applied serum for effortless use.

Shown to offer specific skin-brightening benefits, The Ordinary’s Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% consists of a water-soluble derivative of vitamin C. Though less potent than direct L-Ascorbic Acid, Ascorbyl glucoside offers high stability and comfortable use – this formulation is delivered as an effortlessly easy to use serum. In terms of effects, how do you like the sound of defence from free radical damage, even, radiant skin tone and diminished signs of ageing? Pretty difficult to resist! Just a few drops morning and night and you’re good to go.

THE ORDINARY Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% Review
I'm not very fond of their CEO as I feel that he just brings too much drama to the table and basically bad mouths everyone online, but hey, their products work.

I think we've all heard that we have to eat this, eat that, basically every citrus fruit from A to Z just to have glowing skin, but sometimes I just take a short cut and put skin vitamins directly on to my cheeks.

The packaging isn't too fancy, it comes in the basic THE ORDINARY glass bottle, but the dropper that it comes with is very precise and efficient. Once applied on skin, I didn't feel anything at all. I didn't feel any tingling or any burning effect unlike when I tried another Vitamin C derivative from another brand, so I was able to actually use this twice a day. This also kind of lathers up on skin which I find odd because it looks like I've applied soap on, and it takes a while before it dries. Good thing it's moisturizing and lightweight at the same time, so I can layer up another serum after this.

I didn't really notice this product solely lightening up my blemishes, but I did find that my skin's textured improved and it had a natural glow. This works best on all skin types and after all, it's skin vitamins in a bottle.

What skin-type do you have and what would you use out of the three?
