I’m lucky that I’ve always had clear skin. On occasion I’ll get a slightly red face, but it goes away. When I was pregnant I can’t say my skin was at all nice. It was always red and had small bumps everywhere. Luckily, when the bundle of joys came, my skin was back to being clear. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for my mom. All her life she has dealt with skin irritations, blemishes, and now dark spots. Through the years it’s gotten worse from medications she is taking, and I’m sure stress. The women in our family have also been unlucky with horrible under eye circles and bagginess, yep not a nice feature. My mom has tried many skin creams but refuses to use them due to price, she just cannot afford the products. So when she goes out shopping she will read labels and hopefully find something that will work on her skin blemishes. When I was introduced to Porcelana Skin Lightening Creams I knew I wanted to review these, but also knew this would be the perfect item for her.
Porcelana Skin Lightening Creams are available in a day and night and it claims to fade dark spot, give flawless skin, and even skin tone. They are known as the skin discoloration authority.
Before giving this to my mom to review I wanted to see how this looked, smelled and the ingredients being used. Both day and night cream contain the active ingredients hydroquinone U.S.P. 2% which is a skin lightener and the day cream also contains a sunscreen. They also contain inactive ingredients. I did not find the scent to pleasant. When rubbed on my face I smelled an old smell of onions. A scent I did not like. This is also a very thick cream but seemed non greasy. Here are my moms thoughts on the cream which she has been using for about a month now.
“I have been using the Porcelana Day and Night Cream for approximately 4 weeks now and can say I’m pleased so far. As Nichol stated, the scent isn’t pleasant but you get used to it. It does rub in nicely and is slightly greasy at first but this tends to go away. Do not use a lot, a little goes a long way. My face has many blemishes and discolorations which seem to never go away. I can see in just a short time, some lighter areas and my skin looking a little more healthy. For the day cream you do apply twice a day, so I usually do a light amount first thing when I wake up after my shower, and then again in the afternoon around 2PM. The night cream I put on right before bed. I’m looking forward to seeing what this does for my face after a long period of use. I’m older now and am not fortunate to have healthy, glowing skin like my daughter. I appreciate the fact that she thought of me for this review and like I said, I cannot wait to see the result in a couple months time.”
So there you have it a review from my wonderful mom. I’m glad she is liking the cream and you know the best part, she can afford this and so can you. The creams retail for around $6.99 for 3oz and can be purchased at Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Kmart and other mass retailers nationwide. If you have skin issues like acne, dark spots, freckles and other problem issues give Porcelana a try. It’s the most-trusted, effective and affordable over-the-counter solutions available.
