Product Review … questions
I love products, mostly lotions, scrubs, lip balm, body wash and hair regimen products. I admit that there was a time when my skin turned on me and eczema ruled then allergies then some other stuff so, I spent some time under the lights as well as in the sun and makeup to even out my skin colour …because I needed it. I am sure you all know our skin changes due to the environment as well as hormones so reading about women choosing to change their skin colour was disturbing.
Whitening the skin is not new … and while I am definitely no expert, as a consumer of beauty products quite frankly I want to know and pass that information along as well.
However, a practice definitely needs to end as soon as possible. I do not get whitening your skin and since when did lighten & brighten mean gaining youthful skin
I get emails from virtual stores and was interested in Dr. Brandt until I saw the descriptions of a product called,” light years away”! If you read Dr. Brandt’s description of light years it says whitening; so, because it bothered me , I emailed gilt to find out some information … below is the list and my request:
Light years away® whitening cream cleanser, Size: 15 g
Light years away® whitening essence, Size: 20 ml
Light years away® whitening renewal solution, Size: 5 ml
Light years away® brightening eye cream, Size: 15 g
Light years away® whitening cream, Size: 5 g
I have no idea if this product is labeled correctly but knowing how women are whitening their skin these days – here as well as in other countries … and in my opinion, it is an awful practice!
I think Gilt should avoid promoting it…
I get and understand controlling hyper-pigmentation as well as getting rid of dead cells but the product says whitening cream etc.
My question is, has anyone from Gilt tried it and is it a skin whitener ?
Let me know what you think, have you used it and can vouch for it being something other than a skin whitener?
