When I received my Shiseido White Lucent Spot Targeting Serum + and Power Brightening Mask sample, I couldn’t resist using the serum that night.

I washed my face as how I usually do, dried, and pumped three pumps of the Shiseido White Lucent Spot Targeting Serum onto my palm and rubbed. What caught my attention was the scent: it was light and not cloying. The consistency is just right: not too thick.

Upon applying to my face, I was surprised by how light it felt. It was almost like putting water mixed with a teeny tiny drop of moisturizer on. The serum was absorbed by my skin and was already dry in 10 seconds max. Now comes the ultimate deciding factor of this challenge. Usually, whenever I try a new product and it doesn’t suit my skin, I always wake up with one or two cystic acnes. Yes, it happened even with those high-end brands in the past. Imagine to my delight when I woke up and saw no spots, no acne, and best of all, my skin felt so supple and bright.Thinking that I was just carried away by all the good reviews I ready about the product, I chalked it up to overimagination and proceeded to use it for six more days, day and evening.

On the seventh day, I used the serum one more time that morning. In the evening, after washing my face, I opened the pack of Power Brightening Mask. Taking the mask out, my fingers were already soaked. There was that much serum in the pack!!! Putting it on was fairly easy, the mask stretched to fit my face. (I used the excess serum inside the pack on my neck and elbows. :D)

Those ten minutes passed by really quickly as I was really really relaxed; it doesn’t feel like I have icky stuff on my face. Upon removing the mask, I quickly rubbed it some more on my neck and elbows. There really was that much serum!

Yep, my face was brighter and my skintone was more even. The ruddiness was lessened and one can really tell I was doing something different with my skincare routine. Only a few days after starting this regimen, I was even going to our milk tea shop at night without makeup on, something that I have never done before. Although my acne scars haven’t disappeared, I am confident that with prolonged use, I can finally achieve that flawless, supple skin that I have been searching for all along.

I was planning to join the 7day challenge so I used it the day after I got it. Too bad I got sick after that and wasn't able to meet the deadline. Anyway, back to my review. Shiseido White Lucent serum has a watery-like consistency which easily absorbs by the skin. The scent is also light almost unscented for me. I replaced my daily skin care routine of cleanser-softener-serum-moisturizer with just cleanser-serum to see if it works. First few days were a bit disappointing as I had breakouts. I was almost hesitant but decided to push through. It was a GOOD CHOICE indeed! In barely four days I started to feel the smoothness of my skin. My cousin also noticed that my face is more radiant saying that it is glowing. On the seventh night, I replaced the serum with the Shiseido White Lucent Power Brightening Mask. I've tried several mask before but this one is far from them all. The mask itself is thicker and it fits perfectly onto my face. Also, I couldn't help but to notice how the mask is fully soaked when I opened it. After waiting for about 10 minutes I took it out and spread the remaining essence into my skin. I feel so refreshed after putting on the mask because of it's cooling effect and my face instantly brightens. In just seven days the dark spots around my eyes and nose area started to diminish. Dark spot on my nose visibly lightens. I also noticed that my pores are a bit smaller and my face brightens. Overall, Shiseido White Lucent Serum and Shiseido White Lucent Power Brightening Mask is a great combo. Shiseido White Lucent truly exceed my expectations!

I have some dark spots on my face that's why I got this sample to try out. Honestly, I wasn't able to see some results for dark spot reduction; though I believe that for this product to effectively take effect, it needs to be used for more than 7 days, to purchase the full size even! Dark spots are very hard to eradicate and using any product for 7 days doesn't merit an effective result.

For the brightening effect though, I'll say that the product really is effective on this even only for 7 days! My face looks brighter, clearer and healthier! I believe it made my skintone more even (but not yet the dark spots). Overall, I am happy with this result. It only goes to show that it really works and I should just probably need to buy the full size to see the full result; in which I will.

This product is true to its claims..it really whitens out your dark spots, this being a very expensive product i thought that i would use a little a time, what i do is, i just literally apply this to the areas that are dark because thats the places i wants to whiten. And it pretty works, with the combination of mask, it brightens, makes my sking smooth, overall very nice product

I was amazed how this product really worked even for just seven days. First, the serum is really lightweight. It didn't feel sticky nor greasy on the face. In less than a minute, it has been absorbed by my skin. It has a scent that did not bother me at all. After seven days, my skin got brighter just by using the serum. Second, the mask is really soaked with essence. It felt cool on the face which slightly relaxed me. I love the fit of the mask because I was able to even stand up and roam around the room without it falling off. Morning after using the mask, my skin felt smoother and some fine lines were diminished a bit. Also, pores became less visible.

I gave my sample to my ate and she says that it works. She has some dark spots because of sun damage and acne scars and it lightened them during the short time she used the product. According to her, it's worth saving up for.

Three pumps is all it takes to cover my face and neck. The serum feels good from upon application. Easily absorbed, my skin felt smooth and matte after applying, like a primer would feel, it did not sting or felt itchy afterwards. Applied the serum for 7 days straight, day and night, I had some pimple scars which were light gray from the last time I went and had a facial pricking. After the 7 days it lightened quite a bit but did not erase the dark spot entirely. I noticed that my complexion was brighter and my face felt much smoother compared to before I started using the serum.
I used the mask the night after the 7 days of using the serum. It felt really soaked when I pulled it out of the packaging, which was a good thing, meaning it was a very potent concentration of the serum, I'm not sure if it brightened my face more after putting on the mask for 30 mins long but it felt good while it was on, a cool refreshing tingling feeling on my face a sign that the mask juice is working it's way into my skin.

The consistency is perfect! It's slightly thin so it doesn't feel heavy. I'm really glad that it got absorbed easily. I put this on before my BB cream. It did reduce my dark spots but I can't say that the effect was 'amazing'. It made my skin a little smoother. After a week, I used the mask. I love it! It fits right and I think the essence is more than enough. I'm now saving up for a full-size. A bit pricey but I wanna see the effect after prolonged usage. To sum it all up, perfect pair! :)

The bottle of the Serum is very appealing even if it's only a sample it already looked expensive.My concern is my skin looks dull and tired due to lack of sleep and stress,just 2 pumps of the serum is enough to cover my entire face and some area of my neck because of it's watery consistency and there is no sticky feeling. I used it for a week and it gave me amazing results my skin now has a rosy glow,hydrated and my skin tone is brighter and more even.My take on the mask is it gave my skin that instant boost of hydration.I felt my skin was refreshed and rejuvinated and the brightening effect is visible.I'm happy with this product.

I've been using the Shiseido White Lucent Intensive Spot Targeting Serum for more than 7 days now and I'm loving the results! I really like the texture of the serum - very light with a great smell too - and how my face feels once I apply it. Although I didn't quite see a difference in some dark spots (hopefully, not just yet), I noticed that my face looks brighter, if not whiter. This product, to me, deserves a chance and I'm willing to try it until I've used up my sample. Thanks for this SampleRoom!

Even though I wasn't able to participate in the 7-day challenge of Shiseido regarding this product, I still tried it out of curiosity if it will really work. With the 7-day challenge time span, I can say that the whole experience was pampering and luxurious. First of all, the smell of the product smells like the products used when you have your facial on reliable clinics. So, just by the smell of the product, your mind brings you back to the feel of being pampered that you experience before. Second, the consistency is liquid-y which is so easy to apply. Lastly is the effect, I can say that with that time span, there are changes on the dark spots on my face. The scars I got from past acne lightened and the color of my forehead somehow matches the color of the rest of my face now. I forgot to use the mask by the way but I'm planning to use it this coming summer vacation because with the busy schedule that I have at the moment, pampering myself now would be a waste. It will serve as my reward for the hard work I put through these busy times. The price is quite high so I don't know if I'll buy it. But we don't know, maybe. :)

Among the serums I have tried, this one has the best consistency as it gets absorbed easily, and is not tacky at all. Dark spot reduction is minimal over my two-week trial period. However, the overall brightening effect is quite discernible. It doesn’t cause any break out, and it seems to even soothe budding irritations.

As for the mask, you can really see its potent brightening effect immediately after use, but seems to wear out after a few hours. I’m not quite sure if it really has long lasting effects. Given the first impression I have of it though, I would definitely want to use it again.

For Shiseido Intensive Spot Targeting Serum: I have been using it for more than a week. I've definitely noticed a change. I can see visible effects. Every time I use it my skin gets a dewy rosy glow that I just love. I only apply it every night. I have dark spots due to acne/pimples. They start to fade away after a few days of using this product.
For Power Brightening Mask: My face looks slightly more luminous and a little more even. My skin is brighter after using this.

One of my favorite kikay kit products is serum, it can never really go wrong. I was pleasantly surprised that this serum felt lighter than any I've ever tried, now other serums seem heavy in comparison. I've also tried the other Shiseido products from Sample Room and they all consistently have this very light, airy, clean feel to them. The mask was great as well - it gives a cool feeling and makes your skin super supple afterwards. Definitely a treat to pamper yourself with. Shiseido, I still think you're kind of expensive but you're making me fall for you!

The Shiseido Intensive Spot Targeting Serum+ was was non-greasy & had a mild scent. I didn't have any breakouts when using this product. It’s safe for acne prone skin. The Shiseido White Lucent Power Brightening Mask is a powerful mask! My skin was glowing right after use! The mask was soaked with the formula. It is the best facial mask I ever used. It delivered immediate results! My overall 7-day experience with both the Shiseido White Lucent serum & mask was excellent! My dark spots disappeared. This is one of the most wonderful products I've ever tried! Thank you Sample Room!

The consistency of the serum is very thin and can easily be absorbed by the skin. It's not greasy nor sticky too. I love how it makes my skin feel soft and supple immediately after applying. It feels really nice on the skin. The mask comes with A LOT of essence and it smells good. It feels perfectly on my face and doesn't slide off easily. After more than a week, there is a significant change on the pimple marks on my right cheek and my overall complexion, too, lightened a bit. I also apply it on my neck so help even out my color.

SERUM: This is the best serum I have tried so far. It was not sticky and it was easily absorbed by the skin. It had this instant brightening effect that other serums could not give. It stayed true to its promise of a giving a more toned skin. After only 4 days, I saw that the skin around my face was tighter, smoother, and more radiant. I also experienced no allergies while using it. The serum was also perfect under makeup as it functions like a primer for me together with my water-based moisturizer. I am giving this a thumbs up for its performance but I wouldn't exactly buy this compulsively because of the price.

MASK: Now this is the definition of instant power brightening. My face was glowing after my 10-minute use. I wanted to prolong my use but I was afraid my already fair face will become even whiter. Haha! I tried squeezing out the liquid in the mask after use and boy oh boy! That was a lot of product! I felt like I used a whole bottle of the serum! I felt really pampered by this mask. it did not scrimp on the product used and yes, it delivered its promise! I saved the excess liquid from the mask and will use it once or twice a week like a mask. As usual, no harsh reaction from the mask.

I liked how lightweight it was and easy to spread. Drying time is quick, just about a minute or so. It also goes so well under makeup and helps my foundation go on smoothly. No sticky after feel too. I like how soft and supple my skin is after just 2 days of use. I'm happy to report that it did not broke me out. Also, serum aided tame down redness on the side of my nose.

There was a cooling and soothing effect from the mask which again I so love. Just a disclaimer thought, my room is airconditioned and I'm not sure if the product really has the 'cooling effect' I'm referring to. The mask is also flexible and durable even though its quite thin. It fits my face comfortably and also stays put which was a plus since I was able to play with my son even if I have a mask on. The redness has subsided. There's also an instant radiance and I look well rested on the after 7 days. It was made my pores less visible on the area near my nose too.
