Product Review … questions
I love products, mostly lotions, 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 and used makeup to even out my skin. I am sure you all know our skin changes due to the environment as well as our hormones so when I read about women of colour 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 more and pass that information along as well.
However, this is a practice that most 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?
