Hey girl!

When it comes to whitening products, I am a go getter. I've always wanted to try something new until I found the perfect whitening product that really works. I naturally have a medium to morena skin tone and I always wanted an even skin and lessen the darker areas.  Lately, I've been using this Silka lotion. I usually have my go-to lotion but since I wanted to thoroughly test this one, I stopped using it and go for a dry run for 2 weeks and counting to see if it could lighten my skin. And the results? Let's find out.

It is formulated with papaya enzyme and Vitamin B3 enriched with olive oil that help lighten skin tone and protects the skin from premature aging. I always trust papaya lotion because it is proven effective in whitening. However, there are tons of papaya lotion over the market scene, I can't figure it out what formulation really works best. Back to the product, the first thing I've noticed in this lotion is the lovely floral scent that last long unlike other lotions that fades away after minutes to an hour after application. The scent gave me a hype of good vibes everyday. It is a non-greasy lotion that can easily be applied on skin. It instantly moisturizes the skin as it whitens.

Let's put in to a test.

Another thing that causes my skin to darken is my everyday struggle commuting to work or riding a motorcycle. The sun directly burns my skin to death. Not only that, it makes my skin dry too. That is why, it is foremost important to me to not only whiten my uneven skin and moisturize it but also keep it protected from the sun. Good thing, this lotion has SPF 30 to protect me.  

And the whitening results?
To tell you honestly, I am a little bit impatient with whitening lotions. I really want it real fast and see the results but it is not always the case. So, after two weeks of application once a day ( yes, only once a day in the morning. It is recommended to use twice daily, day and night) here are my results. As you can see, there is a noticeable difference after 2 weeks of use. It works! It may not dramatically whiten my skin but there is a real difference. The wrist watch mark is a little bit there but is almost blending it with the darker areas. Getting even huh? Knowing that, I haven't finished a 100ml bottle yet for the 2 weeks of use, I now can see the whitening effect. Clap,clap,clap.

Overall experience. It effectively whitens skin and just like many other whitening lotions, you have to patiently wait for the results. It may took longer for the others depending on the current skin tone and activities but one thing is for sure, it works. Patience is a virtue. LOL! I may not have the fair skin that I want \ed for now but pretty sure, my skin is fairer compared from two weeks ago.

Let's talk again on my next blog.
Yes, YOU lovely gorgeous.

Love yourself because you are beautiful.

Hugs and Kisses,
