I was so keen on trying this product because of my hyper-pigmentation. I've had brown spots on my cheeks for the past 5 years or so. Having tried almost everything - from brightening creams, chemical peels, diamond peels to laser treatments, nothing has changed or even improved them. I did the routine religiously, applied the serum morning and night for 7 days and then the mask. Honestly? I really didn't see any changes at all, though the areas around my brown spots seem whiter. I wasn't expecting a miracle change but maybe given more time, say 2 months of continuous usage, maybe it will yield better results.

My 7-day usage span overlapped with my period which might explain the minuscule pimples moving around. With this said, the breakout reaction from this sample set might not be as accurate but I can say that it does not aggravate already present pimples.

I honestly think that the Shiseido White Lucent Intensive Spot Targeting Serum+ is an excellent must-have product. I would go as far as saying that it's absolutely heaven sent. It delivers what it promises. It also delivers more than what it promises and in my case, reducing my blemishes/overall redness and deeply moisturizing my face without side-effects like oiling up. I was able to leave home with just setting powder on and retouching before leaving work did not emphasize the dry, flaky patches on my cheeks. It doesn't negatively affect makeup, when present, either. It seems that a little goes a long way for this product, seeing that my sample has yet to run out.

On the other hand, the Shiseido White Lucent Power Brightening Mask is a good product but will only give results when used regularly for a long time. After usage, it made my skin feel soft and smooth and just a tad bit brighter and it ends with that. In comparison, it might be just as effective as the serum but will need a couple more uses to show up.

Finally. A product line that delivers in getting rid of stubborn spots. The serum is okay. I've noticed slight changes on my third day of use. My favorite part is applying the mask on. It provided me with such a relaxing feeling due to the cooling effect. After I took it off, there goes the radiant (bright and glowing) skin. My blackheads went off with the mask. The remaining essence from the mask is a bit sticky thou. But overall, I must say, that I am more than satisfied with the result. The only thing that's keeping me from buying the full size is the price. My monthly budget for skin care is not sufficient so I must save up for this.

I can't believe that the dark spots (from acne)that I have been trying to combat for months was easily diminished by the Shiseido White Lucent Intensive Spot Targeting Serum in a span of seven days. Everything seems to be right from the texture to the smell. And best of all, you just need a small amount to cover your face. The Power Brightening Mask feels great on the skin as well. I thought that my face could not improve any better, but I was wrong. You can really notice the difference after. It helped me with the final stage of my battle with acne and I couldn't be thankful enough for being given a chance to use this. I hope that I will be able to purchase one in the future if my budget would allow me.

After giving this product a shot for 7 days, I had to take a second, a third, a fourth and a few more look both from a regular and a magnified mirror just to check if there have been some improvements on my face or not. It's quite hard to tell even after comparing my before and after pictures. I guess I was initially expecting/hoping that some of my dark spots will eventually vanish just like the others who have used it. Unfortunately, the amount of dark spots on my face seems to be the same. I couldn't quite tell if my complexion improved or not. Having said this, I did enjoy using the serum on my face. I do like how soft my skin feels after applying it. What I don't like though is how my face looks after two hours or more. It looks really really oily - more so than ever. I'm not sure if that is part of the whole process or not. What I enjoy the most about this experience was putting the mask on my face. The smell was just so wonderful and very relaxing. I like that Shiseido was very generous with the amount of liquid included inside the pack. I really made sure to put the excess on my face so that it wouldn't go to waste. I love it a lot. I will most likely purchase some brightening masks for future use. As for the serum, I still have some left so I'll just keep using it and, hopefully, I'll notice a much better result next time.

Maybe I'll buy it because of monetary concern. I think it was a bit overpriced or I am just not the type of person who would buy such a expensive product.

BUT, wait, my overall experience was great!
Here's some part of my blog about it..

Tonight is the first time I've used Shishiedo lucent white. Upon applying the lucent white I've noticed its watery consistency. I am not used with thin serum because it dries fast and looks dry on my face but Shishiedo intensive spot targeting serum proves me wrong. It was easy to apply. my skin really absorbs it! It was like the serum ooze itself through my pores /face skin and targets the inner layer of it! After applying, I've touched, felt and pinched my face couple of times and it felt light, smooth and moisturized. Amazing!

This product made me fully understand why it is sometimes okay to pay a premium for skin care. Truth be told, I didn't really expect it to work wonders within the given seven days because I've always felt that sample sized items are not enough to make a difference. I was proven wrong when I saw how clear my skin looked by sixth application! My dark spots are still there but the overall effect was really such that my skin looked clear and bright - to the point where people asked me what product I was using. That, for me, really is the barometer for product efficacy. I'm one or two applications away from the end of my sample and I'm already considering slicing the bottle open to scrape out any leftovers inside - that's how precious the serum is!

I've been using this for a week now, using a sample I got previously and the one from sample room and I am loving its brightening effect on my skin. I have acne blemishes on my cheeks and jawline. It made some of the smaller acne blemishes disappear and the larger ones are starting to lighten up as well. The face mask was a joy to use. My skin was smoother and brighter right after removing the mask. I would definitely save up and buy this duo to save my skin. Thank you sampleroom for this!

Simple packaging with great contents. I just can't believe how amazing the serum and the mask are. My "freckles" in my eye area visibly become lighter after just 7 days. It also provides good moisture. The mask is superb! It made my skin glowing after use. My face becomes brighter, softer and smoother that I can't help but keep the excess essence for future use.

I've been using this product for 7 days now (morning and evening) and I can say it is really effective. The consistency of the serum is just right because it is easily absorbed by my skin. It gives my skin a glowing look upon waking up in the morning. My skin feels smooth and supple, looks refreshed and the dark spots due to pimples already lightened a bit. It also smells good and clean. The mask is so hydrating and relaxing. It gives my skin instant glow after I used it. I will definitely save money to buy this product from Shiseido :-)
