My mom has young looking skin, but not by good genes...she has skin younger than her real age (62 ahem..) But since she is camera shy, I took photographs of her fascination with anti-aging products from Japan -- Cosme DeCorte. And since in Malaysia, and most Asian countries, there is an obsession with fairer looking skin that clearly indicates health and prosperity. Not just snow-white skin, but skin that glows from whithin.
Hence, she swears by Cosme DeCorte which has helped her acne prone, pigmented and saggy skin since 3 years ago... and I have been a witness to her transformation that really reversed signs of aging. The few pictures below really shows her current collection of Cosme DeCorte things along with other skincare line that she has experimented on. Now you know the influence of beauty regimes and skincare products come from ....and infected this mind of mine :)

|Moisture Liposome looks like candy here|
|Night cream, day cream, cleansing cream....|
That's not enough to shock anyone of course, but take a look at her cupboard full of Cosme DeCorte samples that she has collected over the past year!!!!

|Closer look, I spotted Kose de Beaute too|

Cosme DeCorte Whiteologist Spots Concentrate review
|It has a nice droplet dispenser to measure the exact amount needed|
Rumoured to be the best whitening skin care product from Japan (ie, the world... there is no one else who can make skin whitening/brightening products as well as the Japanese)... I've been using this for the past 2 weeks religiously at night. Here's how you use it...
|The product absorbs so well.|
So here are the results from using Cosme DeCorte White Science mask and serum! I have to say that I am impressed although my freckles have not been wiped out. My skin is so much brighter now and I've been asked if I was a fresh graduate (ie less than my current age). I have to spread the word about this brand.
1. Whitening products don't "whiten" skin. In fact, it's use so interchangeably with "Brightening" and they use most of the same whitening/brightening agents in both eastern and western skin care lines such as kojic acid.
2. You must use the whitening serum for at least 2 weeks religiously, and with the right application of light massage, else the effects are less.
3. Freckles will be difficult to disappear, however whitening serums help to brighten skin but also slowly lighten freckles.
