I have been hooked on Albion’s whitening skincare ever since I got started on them a few months ago… my routine includes the Excia Whitening range which I loved [and have reviewed here], and the Albion Exage White Whitening Innovation Serum.
Albion Exage White Whitening Innovation is a new serum from one of my favourite Japanese skincare brands targeting pigmentation concerns. Similar to the Excia Whitening range, this new White Whitening Innovation works to keep melanocytes in the skin inactive, preventing formation of new dark spots and preserving the natural clear beauty of youthful skin. At the same time, it targets existing melanosomes and lightens them before they turn into melanin.
Whilst Exage White goes to work on the inner layers of the skin, any results are not noticeable in the short run. Therefore, it is nice that Albion has also included a White Injection Capsule in the formula that delivers highly-radiant amino-saccharides to the corneous layer of the skin to impart a brightening effect. A bright fine polymer also covers the skin surface to diffuse light for a visible whiteness.
The product comes in a sleek geometric-shaped bottle with a pump dispenser. A single pump produces enough product to cover my face and neck. It has a light milky fluid texture that smooths out silkily and is easily absorbed.
Apart from its skin-whitening properties, the very first property that I noticed upon first use was the moisture boost. As the last step of the Albion routine, Exage White Whitening Innovation leaves my skin feeling supple and well hydrated, and remains that way throughout the day. Remember though, that the basic Albion routine ends with a cleansing sweep of lotion, and any serum comes at the end (the milk or fluid moisturizer comes immediately after cleanser and does not linger on the skin). Hence, I have found that Albion serums tend to have a slightly richer texture in general. That in itself does not mean the Exage White Whitening Innovation will not pair well with other skincare brands, simply that you may find that you no longer need as rich a moisturizer nor as many layers. On my dry skin, I love how my skin feels after Albion Exage White Whitening Innovation, and found my makeup goes on much better! Have you tried anything from Albion yet?
