Review: Shills Foam Esthe Pack

I'm very tempted and want to buy Jill Stuart's spring eyeshadow palette and blush from some online shops, since I won't be heading to Taipei or Tokyo anytime soon. It's not a cheap brand but I've sort of lost interest in Lunasol's spring palettes having read reviews that they aren't that great. I'm also losing interest in the other items from Chanel and Dior. So, if I don't buy them, I could get Jill Stuart. Should I or should I not? I am looking at Bobodave.com Well, on to today's review, which is on Shills Foam Esthe Pack, (RRP SG$24.90). It is the first item from the left in the picture. Image001copy This is what the product promises to do:

"Oxygen whitening SPA bubble bath. Create an elastic white and soft skin in just 3 minutes! Mediterranean islands Olive extracts is a natural anti-aging ingredient that provides the skin with elasticity and moisture. Arbutin repels yellow skin tones and melanins giving you a clean, white and watery skin! Added with herbal Wood Grass essence and Hamamelis extract, it purfies the pores and removes dead skin. Its unique yeast formula can also soften and moisturize the skin. Just like a facial SPA with plenty of creamy bubblies giving you freshness throughout the day! "

I found the product does whiten my skin. I've used it twice and it whitens my skin so much that my face is slightly paler than my neck! It also exfoliates and unclogs the pores. I have no idea what it is that makes the whitening so effective. I certainly hope it's not some bleach! But it does have AHA and arbutin listed in the ingredients. Here's the ingredients list: Image000copy That said, it doesn't have a strong smell, doesn't feel harsh, and doesn't strip the skin but leaves it soft and smooth. It hasn't irritated my skin. It doesn't really bubble up much though. I find that I have quite good luck with products that don't have to be left on the face for long. So I can use these, as long as they are not too drying, without much problems, unlike creams or lotions. The thing I dislike about Shills products is that the bottles don't contain much information. All the info is left on the box, so I find myself having to keep the boxes, as I tend to be forgetful. But I don't like clutter and find having to keep the boxes annoying. I hope Shills will improve it's packaging in the future. © Copyright. All rights reserved.

Hihi, not trying to be a wet blanket but you may wanna be cautious with it on your face if it contains AHA... products which removes old skin cells faster than our skin is ready to get rid of them, could cause another sensitive reaction. I've had products which work fine on my neck but irritate my face. How weird if that?! Hahaha....
