Product Review: Do You Need A Fairness Kit For Your Skin?
The effects of the Fairness Kit is immediate, in a day or two you can feel your skin lighter and fairer. Your skin is exfoliated and dead skin is cleaned off the epidermis with the help of this grease-free cream.
Fairness and lighter skin shade is not forever. You have to continue using the product to sustain the same effect. Also, it is important to use all four products consistently to help maintain clear and light skin - which can prove to be both expensive and time consuming.
Cheryl’s Dermalite Fairness Home Kit is an effective skin lightening treatment. With regular application of all the four products in sync, one can get radiant skin, glow and tan reduction. But the immediate effects also make you wonder about the content in the product and if it is safe for continuous application.
Fairness creams and treatments are the talk of the town in summers. Every lady wants a skin tone that is impervious to the harsh sunlight. Dermalite Fairness Home Kit from Cheryl’s tries to promise the same. Cheryl’s DermaLite Home Care Kit consists of four products:
DermaLite Face Wash - Is a "clinically proven and effective cleanser" that cleanses and lightens skin. This cleanser is for normal to dry skin and not suitable for sensitive skin.
Our verdict: The product stands on what it claims, after a wash your skin feels clean, and soft. The only downside is, it is odourless.
DermaLite Freshener - This is an alcohol free, pH balanced hydrating toner that will rebalance the pH of the skin after cleansing and also hydrate it.
Our verdict: It’s a base that helps in absorption of the other creams that follow. It feels like mist that is sprayed on the face. We are not sure what purpose it serves.
DermaLite Fairness Lotion – A cream that brightens and whitens skin by penetrating deep into the skin to inhibit melanin production.
Our Verdict: Regular use of this cream helped in achieving toned skin and reduced spots.
DermaLite DermaShade Sunblock - It uses the "best ingredients, SPF boosters, latest sun care technology and active herbal extracts" which offer you sun protection.
Our verdict: The best among the lot, it is non greasy and has a very smooth texture to it, you don’t have to apply compact or powder after applying this sunblock as it will not lead to oily skin. Works best for six hours.
We asked a few questions to Mr. Oscar Pereira, the founder of the product, on the tall claims the product boasts and if it is safe in the longer run, here are the excerpts.
How does the whitening process start and will it give me an even skin tone all over?
The home care products remove the dark pigments from the top layer of the skin and also inhibit the enzyme, Tyrosinase, which produces melanin. Less melanin means a whiter skin. The process is uniform, which means you will get an even skin tone on the face and neck.
Does the whitening last when the product is used continuously?
The skin whitens gradually and is permanent, provided you protect the skin from ultra violet induced darkening by using an appropriate sunblock.
With the instant whitening the product delivers, we are concerned about the ingredients of the product...
Our research and development team selects the most effective, safe and tested molecules in the scientific world and we combine this with active herbal ingredients.
What if I discontinue use, how soon will I lose the glow I have garnered through this process?
For maintaining the desired result, you should continue to use the standard products for home care.
So, it’s your choice completely to opt for it or be satisfied with what you’ve got. Cheryl’s DermaLite Home Care Kit is priced at Rs. 950 and are sold only to professionals like aestheticians, salons, beauty parlours, dermatologists.
