Review: Bio-Essence Tanaka White 4X Intensive White Serum & Double Whitening Day Cream SPF 20

For the past 7 days, I have been diligently using 2 products from Bio-Essence. They are the Tanaka White 4X Intensive White Serum & Double Whitening Day Cream SPF 20.



You may not notice but I do have freckles on my cheeks and it's pretty obvious that I have uneven skin tone. So I guess it's all about reducing the visibility of freckles and prevention of more freckles now.


Previously, I did try the Bio-Essence Tanaka White series but now they have improved it with premium alpha-Arbutin which is 9X more powerful than beta-Arbutin! Meaning it's more effiicient, this is important because we women age faster than men. In case you are unaware, arbutin is found in many whitening products. It eliminates pigmentation, maintain your skin's fairness and improves your overall skin complexion.

The Bio-Essence Tanaka White 4X Intensive White Serum helps your skin not just on the surface but also from within. Putting it on simple terms, the alpha-Arbutin and Tranexamic Acid are combined to block melanin production thus, blemishes and dark spots are prevented from forming beneath the skin.

And from outside, the Tanaka Extract from Tanaka tree bark blocks the UV rays and external pollutants. It also nourishes, hydrates and cools your skin. That's a lot of benefits isn't it?

And now, let me show you how to use the Bio-Essnece Tanaka White 4X Intensive White Serum.

Notice that the texture of the Tanaka White 4X Intensive White Serum is really thick

1) On clean face, dot sufficient amount of the serum on the 5 main areas of your face.


2) Spread the serum evenly onto your face.

3) Apply another layer on your freckles and dark spots.

After application, I don't feel the product being heavy or oily. Although I will be sleeping shortly after skincare, I still don't like the feeling of stickiness like dust will be accumulated on my face.

Let me show you how my skin has improved from Day 0.


Sorry that the picture from Day 0 is not a good example due to the lighting. But you can still use Day 1 to replace Day 0. It's quite obvious that my face has become fairer and brighter. Not as dull as before, or rather less yellowish.

I also tried the Bio-Essence Tanaka White Double Whitening Day Cream SPF 20. It not only protects skin from the UV rays, it also repairs skin to bring out instant fairness beneath the skin.


The texture of the Tanaka White Double Whitening Day Cream looks thick but it is easy and smooth to blend

1) After cleansing your face in the morning, spread a sufficient amount of the day cream evenly on your face.

2) Make sure it is fully absorbed before putting on make up.

Here's a picture after first application of Tanaka White Double Whitening Day Cream




 I like that it does make my skin look brighter and fairer. I do feel a slight cooling sensation on my face after application It doesn't feel oily on my face and is absorbed quite fast. I didn't apply any make up but my skin already looks almost good to go.
