It’s 2013 and my quest for brighter, luminous skin continues. This year, Lancôme introduces the new and improved Blanc Expert Melanolyser™ Integral Whiteness Spot Eraser as well as a smart innovation, Blanc Expert “Sun Loving Zone” Bio-Cellulose Mask. Fans of Lancôme‘s whitening range will also love the UV Expert GN-Shield SPF 50 PA+++ for the ultimate protection against extreme climate conditions. The Blanc Expert Melanolyser™ aims to reduce your dark spots by 50% after two months of product application but you’ll see significant results in 7 days. The Blanc Expert “Sun Loving Zone” Bio-Cellulose Mask covers the most critical area of the face with the most sun exposure and you can see visible results in just 10 minutes – smoother, softer and more moisturised skin. The UV Expert GN-Shield SPF 50 PA+++ protects your skin all day long against the damages effect of UV rays and pollution up to 12 hours. Let’s see if the products lived up to their promises:

Fash-Review: Lancôme Blanc Expert Melanolyser™ The star product from the Blanc Expert range has a moisturising texture which was completely unexpected. I wouldn’t even say it’s lightweight in texture but it does absorb quickly into your skin. I tried it on a couple of dark spots near my eyes for 3 weeks. Eventually, I used it all over my face to achieve an overall radiance. I was seduced by the light, beautiful fragrance during application. Ultimately, I noticed that my face is brighter but my dark spots did not reduce significantly as promised. I believe my melanin production may need a longer usage period than the recommended duration.
Fash-Review: Lancôme Blanc Expert “Sun Loving Zone” Bio-Cellulose Mask
Created specially for Asians, the Blanc Expert “Sun Loving Zone” Bio-Cellulose Mask is my favourite from the Blanc Expert range. Initially, I thought it was odd that this mask doesn’t cover my entire face. I imagined that my nose, cheeks and under-eye area would be brighter than any other part of my face! In fact, I noticed that I have the most skin pigmentation disorders around the area. It’s true, my face instantly glows within 10 minutes. It is recommended that you use this mask consecutively for 6 days for an intensive treatment. I am going to try this treatment next!
This is how you use the mask.
Fash-Review: UV Expert GN-Shield SPF 50 PA+++
I had the opportunity to try the non-BB base UV Expert GN-Shield SPF 50 PA+++ which I use it like a sunblock after moisturising. It’s perfect for the Asian weather as its lightweight formula is sebum and sweat-resistant and anti-shine. I personally would prefer the BB base as it saves me one step in applying makeup – especially for the au naturel look. This is a must-have if you need the highest protection against harmful UV rays and unhealthy pollutants – without feeling like you’re wearing too much.
