|The V7 Toning Light|
Alright let's begin. Let me introduce to you the ultimate whitening product that will put even the fairest of maidens to shame. This new item in hand is the V7 Toning Light by Dr.Jart+ and is a miracle worker for those who are looking to achieving a snowy, glowy, white complexion.
Now seeing as this comment is coming from someone who is super tan (who is totally owning it by the way), I have been told that this product is not suitable for medium to dark skin tones unless there is an absolute dire need of a drastic shade change. Of course, being the one who does not comply to that order unless I see it for myself, I took a curious leap of faith and decided to give the product a go.
So before we begin this drastic change, let's talk about the V7 Toning Light's texture first. It's creamy formulation reminded me somewhat of a delicious mix of whipped cream and frosting, hence blending it out to a desirably smooth consistency onto the skin. Now it does not really absorb as fast as I had hoped for the texture is rather thick, so its best to take it in bit by bit and slowly work the essence into the skin in circular motion.
With regards to the fragrance, the V7 Toning Light has somewhat of a citrus-type scent which I loved and during application, it is noticeable that it reduces and evens out yellow tones quite a bit. It is said to be recommended to use the V7 at the last step of your skincare routine before applying makeup or heading to bed, but in my experience I would prefer to use it during the day, best before applying BB Cream.
|With and without|
Lo and behold the transformation! *Just kidding* Though you have to admit, it is not as much of a change as you would expect right? Yes it was certainly not the sort of geisha looking makeup as one would expect but you can definitely see a considerable amount of difference looking at the before and after.
Now for the moment of truth. What do we think? Well to simplify things, I have decided to list down them down in point form for easier reference for you all to take a look at.
Leaves the face feeling smooth and matte
Evens out yellow skin tone
Moisturizing and gradual skin brightening after 3 weeks
Very light coverage
Texture does not distribute well on the face unless taken little by little & blended properly
As for it being not suitable to darker skin tones, to some extent I have to agree. For those who have are blessed with yellow undertones (like mine), this might work well in your favor, however for those who rock a beige or pink undertone, it might come out slightly grey and a little dull. Even so with the V7 Toning Light, it is always recommended to apply light amounts of the product onto the face as to not heavily overdo it. You really do not want to look like an overnight geisha after all.
