Eureka Moment: One Shade Lighter?

Today, my post is dedicated to readers who could be searching for such product in the market and can't seem to find one or doesn't even know exists!

When I took one look at the box of "Instant White" By Glorious Skin promising instant "white" at first usage, my first instinct: "Yeah right!  Who would want that?  Probably an actor/actress playing a role of a ghost? vampire?" 

Keep in mind that I won't be reviewing this product as I don't plan to use this on my face because I really don't need such function (for now), thank God that my face and neck color match!  But, mind you, I've met a couple of clients who told me their biggest problem is how their face and neck color does not match! This product may actually be the answer to their prayers! OR!  If you mistakenly purchased a shade darker foundation and wouldn't mind trying this product....aha!  Another Eureka Moment for you!


Instant White by Glorious Skin is a light cream that immediately results to a one shade lighter skin tone upon application.  Visibly fairer skin with daily use.  
Checking the box, it's formulated in New Jersey, USA exclusively distributed by Watsons Personal Care Stores (Philippines) Inc. and this costs Php399.00 (approx $9.50).

Initial reaction, the mouth of this pot is too big!  The product is too watery so be careful not to tilt the pot.  I should've listened to my own advise as it got messy on me!  It would be great to purchase a plastic lotion containers and transfer the product for easy storage and usage.

I applied tiny amount of product at the back of my hand.  The consistency is on the water-y side, almost the same consistency as SunPlay Watery Cool Sunblock Lotion.  This one is a tiny bit thicker.


You have to massage the product quickly onto the skin before it dries, once dry, it stays that way and does not transfer to your dark clothing.  I actually tried rubbing my hand against a dark shirt.
If your skin is dry like mine, the product will settle into lines as shown on my fingers, this can be reduced by applying your favorite moisturizer first, let the moisturizer set in then go on with Instant White application!  If you apply this on your face, same concept, moisturize your face before you apply small amount of  Instant White by Glorious Skin.  Less is more!  Keep that in mind!

Don't kill me for doing this but I tested the product on my knees. If its safe for the face, then I'm sure its fine for the body!  Do not apply on broken skin!  My knees aren't dark to start with but there's a spot at least a shade darker than the rest of my legs (I'm sure a lot of you can relate), after application (plus loads of laughter as Mr. AMW can't believe that the location of my face was transferred to my knees! hahaha) 

Yes, I have to agree, the instant whitening effect is there and not the "ghostly" type!  Its quite natural as long as you blend it well!  Take a look at the product "build up" on the side that was not not blended well! (pointed by a yellow arrow).


Eureka moment to the natural-looking one-shade lighter effect!  But keep in mind that not all products will work for ALL individuals.  Always test the product first before you start slathering all over your face and regret later on.  

Apply a small mount of Instant White on wrist area, leave for 5-10 minutes and check if its suitable for your skin or no allergic reactions occur!

Would you try such product?
If you've tried this, share to us your experiences!
I'm sure our readers will appreciate it!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

    i have been seeing this in watsons but i just didn't pay attention though i have to say that the packaging is really an attention-catcher!

    same with me..my neck is darker compare to my chest & face so i guess this would somehow work for me..

    pero pawisin ako, do you think this would leave white streaks if ever pawisan ako?

  11. @~tHiAmErE~ Sis, I will test this ha? Kasi I've been putting this on knees and elbows lang tapos hindi naman pinapawisan dun! Will check and let you know, gano kapawis? it dries up and blend into skin naman but I can't promise if mabubuo or not...will find a way to test this on "pawis" tolerance :)

  12. @Issa Sis, I don't have huge problems on my knees or elbows, and I never put much stuff, once in a while toner lang (na whitening) or things like this one. PERO, it's not perfect, will show you in person, I used to be "gusgusing bata" (ngayon pa rin kaso di na bata) hahaha, anyways, I have this mark from an accident that's a tiny bit darker than the rest of the legs and so far na mamask ito :) pero again, FOR THE FACE TONG PRODUCT! LOL

  13. @Ira LOL!!! Anobeh? May daya nga..naglagay ng Instant White! LOL well..true, this is quite surprising, I thought it'll be super white or will create white cast, hindi naman, so I'm sure it'll work the same on the face :)

    1. Yup it's blended well and a little definitely goes a long way! It finishes off as powder so far so it doesn't feel heavy.
