As I was born with a relatively fair complexion, I never saw the need to use brightening products. However, after trying out the GenOptics Aura Essence ($199 for 30ml, $299 for 50ml & $400 for 75ml) from Japanese skincare brvà SK-II, I realised that brightening skincare aren’t just for those who desire a fairer complexion or those who wish to lớn fight dark spots.

Brightening skincare helps khổng lồ even out the skin tone to lớn deliver the coveted lit-from-within glow and luminosity. So regardless of whether you are naturally tanned or fair, these products can help khổng lồ reduce the appearance of discolouration và rejuvenate lackluster skin.

A lot of women, especially in Asia, want lớn be fairer so they zoom in on “whitening”, but should be focusing on “brightening” as this encompasses not only making the skin fairer, but also more even-toned, luminous và flawless. Who doesn’t want that?

The tìm kiếm for a whitening essence that answers all my needs


As a beauty writer, I’ve sầu tried a fair number of facial essences from different brands, but I always find myself going back to the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence (FTE). I’ve sầu been incorporating the FTE into my skincare routine for about a year now. The FTE is loaded with Pitera, a yeast extract that is found in every SK-II sản phẩm, from the R.N.A Power nguồn anti-aging range to lớn the GenOptics Aura Essence.

Pitera is loaded with vitamins that conditions & softens the skin; amino acids that protect & maintain the skin’s protective sầu barrier & organic acids that gently sloughs away dead skin cells khổng lồ reveal translucent & bouncy complexion, plus anti-aging saccharides và proteins to nourish & rejuvenate the skin. With every application, the FTE leaves my parched, sensitive & acne-prone skin feeling supple và hydrated, and ready for any skincare I choose to follow up with.

While I can always count on my trusty bottle of FTE for balanced, hydrated và supple skin, as I approach my mid-20s, I’m looking for something that will restore radiance khổng lồ my skin. According lớn a survey done by SK-II, women in their 20s actually experience a loss of radiance at a faster rate compared khổng lồ any other age group.

When you have so little time và so much to lớn bởi vì, it can lead khổng lồ insufficient rest, which in turn, slows down the turnover rate of your cells, leading to lớn duller skin. Apart from lifestyle related factors, skin damage from environmental factors can also lead lớn an accumulation of melanin clouds beneath the skin’s surface that can cause the development of both visible & hidden spot formation.

Packed with niacinamide (vitamin B3), an ingredient prized for its anti-oxidative và anti-inflammatory abilities, the Aura essence promises khổng lồ calm the complexion and get rid of excess melanin to unveil smooth and spot-miễn phí complexion.


Before và after using GenOptics Aura Essence


When I first got hold of a bottle of GenOptics Aura Essence, I had high hopes for the sản phẩm because it contains a high concentration of skin-loving ingredients lượt thích Vi-Ta-Min B3 và pitera which I knew my skin would react well with. Needless lớn say, I tested it immediately when I got trang chủ.

On application, I notice an instant brightening effect, my ruddy cheeks appear less red and my skin looks well-rested, almost lượt thích I’ve sầu had a good eight hours of sleep the night before. Even though it is an essence, there is some weight lớn the hàng hóa so the consistency of this almost feels lượt thích a moisturiser. If you have oily skin, you might be able lớn get away with using this as a moisturiser because it is so nourishing.

Even though I don’t really lượt thích my skincare products to be scented, this essence has a mild fragrance that is very pleasant and not too overpowering. It also absorbs easily into the skin & doesn’t feel sticky afterwards so it wouldn’t cause your makeup lớn slip và slide. It also has a dropper that will dispense the recommended dosage into your palms, so I don’t have to lớn worry about using too much (or too little) of the essence.

How I used the GenOptics Aura Essence in my skincare routine


I’ve been using this sản phẩm religiously for about two weeks (day & night) on top of my beloved FTE và I have definitely seen a significant improvement in the uniformity và evenness of my skin tone. Even though I have very sensitive & acne-prone skin, it didn’t irritate my skin or caused any breakouts. For optimal results, I recommover priming the skin with the SK-II FTE before patting the Aura essence inlớn the skin. Make sure you don’t rub your skin – your face is delicate & deserves khổng lồ be treated with tender loving care.

So here’s my take on the GenOptics Aura Essence: On top of loving how my skin feels with every application, it also does a great job in evening out my skin tone & reducing the appearance of dark spots and blemishes. If you’re concerned about hyperpigmentation but you’re not keen khổng lồ dive into a full brightening range, I would definitely recommover adding a brightening essence like this one to your existing skincare routine.
