Product Review: Juju Aquamoist Whity Bihacon Whitening Milk

I have always admired Japanese and Korean women with milky white and porcelain-like skin. I think both have the best skin in the world. Though I can say I have fair and milky-white complexion, I lack the latter – I don’t have porcelain-like skin. I struggled with acne as an adolescent up to my early twenties. The result – scarred and pigmented skin. Now, I am struggling to lighten hyperpigmentation and am trying to save money to go to the dermatologist to heal the scar.
Hyperpigmentation is easier to deal with than acne scarring. I have a few indented acne scars especially on my temples and they are quite ugly. I don’t think there is a product in the market that is formulated to raise indented scars. The only solution I can think of is going to the dermatologist for a procedure. But with hyperpigmentation, there are so many products out there that can help. One that I recently tried is the Whity Bihacon Whitening Milk from Juju Aquamoist.




As I already mentioned, I do have fair skin. I am using whitening products to fade the hyperpigmentation and to even out my skin tone. I have had good experience with Juju Aquamoist before (as seen on this post) hence I was eager to try their other products. I asked my mom to buy this for me when she went to Hong Kong as I have read positive reviews about it online. I have been using this for about 8 months now and I still have a lot of product left – I don’t think I reached half the bottle yet! I am a little unsure though of the results. It did make my skin hydrated and even with some sun exposure I have maintained my fair complexion. But I don’t know if it helped lighten my hyperpigmentation.

Pros:
·    Only a small amount is needed to moisturize the entire face and neck
·    Watery and lightweight – perfect for hot and humid countries such as the Philippines
·    Scent is not too strong
·    Made my skin soft and silky

Cons:
·    Not readily available in the Philippines market
·    Not sure if there is any whitening effect. If there is it is hardly noticeable.
·    Can be a bit oily on people with really oily skin. On days when my skin is acting stranger than usual, I end up with really oily skin when I use this.
Overall:
I am not sure if I will still repurchase this once I consume the bottle. I don’t know if it did anything to lighten my hyperpigmentation as I am also using products recommended by my dermatologist that can also help lighten hyperpigmentation. It could be that the combination of the products I used helped in lightening as I do notice some of my previous hyperpigmentation fade. But I am uncertain if that was because I used this or because of the other products I use. By the way, I have used the products my dermatologist gave me months before I started using this and I can say that they work well with controlling acne and with fading hyperpigmentation. But if you are looking for a product to maintain your fair complexion that is lightweight this is a good product. I will try to look for another whitening product once I am done with this bottle.
