Review: DHC Camu Camu Whitening Set

Note: I used to put prices as a service for those who wanted to know, but I'm feeling this exposes my spendings abit too much, so I'm no longer going to put in prices. ^__^ I got this mini DHC Camu-Camu Whitening Trial set when I was in Japan in April (actually someone helped me buy it and I collected it from her when I arrived there, shhhh secret, don't want to trouble her too much in case others start asking her too, hehe.) Finally got round to trying it last week. There is no strong fragrance and it's not oily at all, being water-based. The Lotion and Essence feel watery and soothing while the cream is light enough to absorb quickly after application. I saw immediate whitening effect after application and was quite pleased with it. However, as with many products that give quick whitening, my skin didn't do too well after the second use. It started to dry out my skin, making it tight, bumpy and red. I think it'll be a great product for oilier and less sensitive skin. I didn't expect myself to have so many problems with DHC products, and I'm quite disappointed that 2 of the DHC product range I've tried so far, didn't do so well for me. Fortunately, there's something that worked, and I'll write about it in the next post. Ingredients from DHC Taiwan website:
