A month ago, I got my paws on the new L’oreal White Perfect Transparent Rosy Double Essence. Whew! That’s a mouthful! So, I’m going to be calling it the L’oreal Rosy Transparent Essence for the rest of the review ok?
If you are familiar with the L’oreal Double Essences then you will be no stranger to this packaging. I used to use the L’oreal White Perfect Double Essence which I rather liked. What you get is a bottle with 2 separate tubes of essence. Depress the nozzle and the pump will pump out essences from each tube which you then mix to activate them and apply on your skin. No rocket science to it 🙂
The L’oreal Rosy Transparent Essence is a new formulation that uses finely milled pink tourmaline gemstones in the essence to promote microcirculation in the skin and to reflect a rosier pinker countenance and complexion. Gemstones? Yes. This is not the first time we are seeing gems being used in skincare – common items used are gold, pearls and yes, even diamonds! But I digress.
The selling point of the L’oreal Rosy Transparent Essence is the reflection of a pink healthy complexion as opposed to a fairer but yellow based or dull skintone. The brightening effect is further enhanced by the Pro Radiance Complex, a combination of Lactic and Glycolic Acids that gently exfoliate skin surface cells to reveal the brighter more even skintone.
Ok I know what you are thinking. Enough of the background check… does it work? Does it make you look fairer, pinker and more radiant?
