My first love! I have been using this whitening lotion (then, it was Oil of Ulan) from when I was 15, 16 years old. I am now 27 and I'm still using this. Need I say more? My face used to be pimply and obviously, post-healing scarring is a definite. Over time, the lotion just lightens the scarring and just evens out my skin tone. It gives me this ethereal glow whenever I put it on. Pros: - It does what it is supposed to do : Lightens(scars), Whitens(for even, fairer skin), Reduce size of my pores. - Affordable. - Available everywhere (Drugstores, Supermarkets etc) Cons: - It is not a moisturizer. It is solely a skin-whitening product. Note: DON'T slather a lot of the product or your face will get too white. It doesn't really absorb easily. You need to work it in. Very very important. Some people I recommend this product to, upon using it for the first time, complained that it feels icky and they looked 'chalky'. After telling them how to use it, they have nothing but raves for the product. Overall, I am content with this product and unless they discontinue it entirely, I will never stop using it. Please note that this review is ONLY for the UV Whitening Lotion (in bottle form). The Whitening Cream (in jar form), however, sucked! It is sooooo oily. I made the mistake of purchasing that, thinking that it would be more moisturizing on top of whitening my skin. My bad! It doesn't cut it for me. I guess I missed out the fact that it is CREAM. Maybe it will work for people with drier skin.
