Getting monthly facials ain’t for all ages. Grade school and high school students could be considered too young for that kind of treatments as their skin can be too thin and sensitive for it. Honestly, I find that somehow unfair because whiteheads and blackheads don’t choose any specific age before starting popping up like crazy. That was my dilemma back then. My mom said that my abnormally obvious whiteheads were genetic just like my other skin conditions that time.
Now, here’s a quick and affordable solution for teens and all other skin-conscious people out there; iWhite Korea Whitening Pack! You see, this used to be me and my cousin’s weekly bonding activity when I was in high school.. she was a college student then. I’ve used this for so long that I’ve grown completely numb to it. LOL!
So basically, iWhite Korea Whitening Pack is a rich white cream that dries off to a stiff facial mask. It aims to remove dead skin, deep-rooted dirt, and other skin impurities to instantly make the skin appear brighter and cleaner. It’s contained in either an easy-squeeze white tube like the one in the photo above or a sachet. Personally, I prefer using the ones in sachet packaging because once the seal on the tube is removed and air is allowed to enter, it has the tendency to dry out faster. Whereas in using sachets, since one is enough for each use, I don’t have to worry about drying out the rest of the product.
Like iWhite Korea Aqua Moisturizing Cream (Read review HERE), this whitening pack is composed mainly of natural plant extracts like Mulberry (a better natural alternative to hydroquinone that contains arbutin which inhibits melanin production and therefore aids lightening skin discoloration), Panax Ginseng (to revitalize tired skin and reduces wrinkles/fine lines), Aloe Vera (to sooth and protect skin from allergies, remove stretch marks and as it naturally contains salicylic acid, it help prevents breakout) Titanium Dioxide (used as whitening agent and also provides sun screen protection) and Vitamin A, C, E & B5 (to prevent premature aging and help repair skin through its collagen boosting properties).
Begin with a clean dry face. Apply a generous amount of iWhite Korea Whitening Pack and spread it evenly while avoiding the eyes, nostrils and mouth area. Make sure it blends with the iWhite Nose Pack if you had previously applied one. This usually takes about 15 minutes to dry though it really depends on how thick the layer is. Once dry, start peeling it off upward starting from the chin going to the forehead. I must warn you though, if it’s your first time using iWhite Korea Whitening Pack, it can be a bit messy to use and painful to remove. Don’t worry though, you’ll get used to it soon enough. 🙂
Tips: If you have tiny hairs sticking out near your face, wear a tight headband to avoid getting the product on your hair. When applying iWhite Korea Whitening Pack, makes sure to AVOID your brows unless you want a slight waxing done to it. Also, don’t try to peel off the mask when it’s still tacky – wait for it to be completely dry. If you plan to use this to remove whiteheads, try scratching the sides of your nose lightly to make the whiteheads pop out a bit. Thus giving the pack a better grip on them.
Let’s see how iWhite Korea Whitening Pack works out.
After less than half an hour and a painful peeling, my face is noticeably brighter and even the dark patches also lightened significantly. My skin also became softer, smoother and feels suppler as well. These short-term results are temporary although through continuous use, this lightened skin result becomes more and more permanent.
I mainly use iWhite Korea Whitening Pack for its ability to remove whiteheads instead of its whitening effect. And as you can see from the photo above, it works amazingly! For such an affordable product, this sure is really effective in getting rid of my nasty whiteheads and other tiny bumps. However, I wish it’s as effective in removing blackheads as well – using iWhite Korea Whitening Pack regularly combined with my bi-weekly exfoliation could remedy that.
Overall, I’d say that iWhite Korea Whitening Pack is definitely worth every cent as it delivers really good results – both short-term and long-term. It’s very affordable and it’s easy to use.. a bit messy but still fairly easy, if you ask me. 🙂 Also, like iWhite Korea Aqua Moisturizing Cream, this whitening pack is safe for teens too. Because of its active natural ingredients, this could work even for those with sensitive skin.
