  • Mon Cheri Lightener Review


    brighten your day with Mon Cheri's Lightener

    After coming back from Korea, I found a lovely surprise from the folks at Mon Cheri in my pox box. To find out what's Mon Cheri, refer to my introduction post here where I attended their launch in Malaysia (last year). It's a whitening product for the skin which gives a lightening effect after 4 weeks of use. It's been 4 weeks now so I am able to give my comment on this product after applying it twice a day - in the morning and evening after cleansing and toning. It's suitable for all skin types and even sensitive skin. I did not experience any peeling or skin sensitivity after using this product, which just shows how gentle it is. Having said that, I know that this product will not be as effective as pharmaceutical whitening products which could be harsh for sensitive skin type.

    About Mon Cheri's Lightener
    A specially designed lightweight formula which uses a synergistic combination of peptides, niacinamides, plant extracts and natural lactate. These active ingredients were carefully chosen and formulated to tackle not only the already darkened skin complexion and irregularities in pigmentation, but also inhibit the signalling pathways involved in the melanin synthesis to decrease tyrosinase activity. This is the attractive feature of the lightener. Inhibition of melanin synthesis will lead to skin lightening effect, with improvement of photoaging marks and control of hyperpigmentation. It also uses advanced technology to encapsulate the active ingredients and increase absorption into the skin through lipid-lipid interactions.

    How To Use:
    Applying this formula onto the skin twice daily will help stimulate skin lightening effect for better and even complexion after only 4 weeks. The appearance of pigmented spots will reduce as well. Be amazed in 4 weeks!

    The Product:
    The quintessential packaging comes with a twist-and-lock cap which works as a pump. Made of plastic, it's outer casing is a glass illusion of well-kept formula waiting to be used. The calming salmon pink floral design on white background, so Mon Cheri.

    The Texture & Scent:
    The lightweight cream formula gave me a smile under the hot sun. Massaged lightly onto my skin, it disappears in a matter of seconds leaving a shiny effect thanks to the sweet almond oil ingredient. Doesn't feel greasy or oily, when it looks like it. It is not fragrance free so beware you sensitive Rudolf noses out there!.  If you like spas like me, then you'll like the scent it carries - citrus lemon with a hint of rose. The citrus lemon notes grows stronger after the initial burst of flowery notes. This product is made mostly with flower extracts, a Mon Cheri design.

    My Review:
    After using it for a month (4 weeks) as stated on the product, I could see improvements in my skin tone but not significant enough to garner a before and after photo. I would expect this from a product that is not chemically laden with harsh abrasives to lighten / whiten the skin. It is gentle enough for a sensitive skin person like me. I don't see my pigmentations lighten (not that I have bad ones to begin with), but my skin has brightened from the result of using this. From my experience of using whitening products, it also dries the skin and with prolong use, the skin starts to peel. I like that the sweet almond oil protects the outer barrier of the skin from drying up. That gets a bonus point from me. The packaging is beautiful, the scent is relaxing and lovely to my senses. The texture gets a big point from me as I am not a big fan of creamy greasy products.

    For extremely dry skin, I suggest using a hydrating serum / ampule before applying a whitening product. For oily skin, the shine might make you glow even more during day use, so powder your face to matte the effect.
