I’m always late when it comes to beauty – something very ironic for a beauty blogger, right? Fortunately, a good friend of mine, Shirleen Yu of Prettyangelshoppe, is always there to save me from being MIA. Just few days ago, she sent me a surprise package! Of course, it’s the newest product on her shop.
I honestly don’t know what to expect on this baby, I didn’t even bother to google it before I use it. I just read the instruction and thought it’s just a normal whitening lotion/Cream for face. Just like my typical lotion, I applied it on my face and I was just shocked. As in SHOCKED! My face turned ghostly white in an instant! “What kind of product is this?” I googled it and learned that this product is use to make skin look INSTANTLY white!
WHITENING MILK – MILK ESSENCE WHITENING BEAUTY SERIES
Contains whitening elements from milk and vitamin C (whitening factor), can not only quickly moisten the skin, but also effectively decompose accumulated melanin and improve the skin’s self-whitening ability. Regular use helps dark skin become naturally fair and well-moisturized.
It has a weird consistency. The consistency is almost comparable to a consistency of a correction fluid, I’m sure you’re all familiar with.
For some reason, this product reminds me a lot of my NYX HD Studio PhotogenicPrimer --- the consistency, blending and even the ghostly white-shade I get after applying this on my skin! Just like Nyx Primer, I find this difficult to blend. It dries really quickly on skin, so, you really have to apply this part by part and blend as quickly as possible especially if you’re going to use this on your face.
My Bare Face
Half face with Milk Essence
Full face with Milk Essence
I have used this on my face as makeup base/moisturizer. The white shade doesn’t really bother me as my naturactor evens out my skintone after applying it on top of this lotion.
I like using this on my legs when I’m wearing skirt or shorts. This made my skin INSTANTLY whiter! However, if you’re more on tan shade/darker shade, this might look weird on you as the shade is too light!

The only thing that really bothers me is the ingredients. I haven’t seen the ingredients of this product. The direction says that it can be use on your face, so I did. So far, I haven’t experienced any breakout, yet! Use at your own risk. If you’re skin is too sensitive, you may skip using this product on your face.
