AMW Reports: Shiseido's White Lucent Skin Care Launch

I got an invite last week for Shiseido's White Lucent Launch at the Ayala Museum!  It was a long and lazy Monday but I was actually looking forward for this event because  I know a dear friend works there so I'm  excited to see her!  Hi to Vianca, who aside from being a friend, also works for Shiseido. *waves*

Aside from the excitement of seeing a friend, the brand itself is close to my heart.  A couple of years ago when I went to Hong Kong for a business trip, I left my whole skincare regiment back home *gasp* and you would think I'll freak out?  Of course not!  I'm in Hong Kong baby! Its a perfect excuse to go to Sasa and purchase a trial sized skincare brand!  Amidst all the brands, I've chosen Shiseido's Brightening Cleanser, Emulsion  and Moisturizer.  After 2 weeks stay in HK (sample size lasts more than 2 weeks).  I actually saw a huge difference on my skin, I can definitely see a healthy glow and brightness and I was able to meet people without makeup!  Looking back, I wonder why I never purchase any Shiseido skincare when I got back.  So fast forward to today, I am looking forward for a reunion.

The stage looks simple yet very elegant. The event was hosted by none other than the gorgeous model Ms.Georgina Wilson. I knew she's tall but in person, she's way taller and even more beautiful!

We were also introduced to the Area Manager of International Sales Department, Ms. Momoko Nagai!  I can't help but check out her skin!  She does has great skin!  Wonders if its the genes or Shiseido? I should've asked! :P

We all joined the countdown the bright skin! 


Shiseido's White Lucent!

According to Shiseido:
Since its launch seven years ago, Shiseido's White Lucent skincare line has illuminated the true benefits of whitening skincare to women around the world.
In response to the rising global demand for whitening products, we have researched what women consider to be "ideal skin" and came to one conclusion.  Women dream of vibrant skin that glows from within, with a bright and even-toned clarity.

The newest technology of White Lucent makes this dream a reality.

We succeeded in compounding our exclusive whitening ingredients with new, advanced technologies.  Empowered by this harmony, the formulas help to visibly diminish dark spots and uneven skin tone white targeting various types of spots and helping to prevent their formation.
Enhanced by replenishing moisture that effective improves skin texture, skin begins to capture light with a pure radiance that appears lit from within.

It was such a lovely event meeting a lot of people from traditional media, and most of them are also part of the blogging industry!

Stay happy!
