For fine fair skin, try Neutrogena's Fine Fairness line!

Attended a lovely lunch thrown by Neutrogena recently. The skincare brand trusted by a lot of Hollywood celebrities is introducing their latest whitening line this month. And I really need this! Pregnancy has darkened certain body parts and I no likey darkey parts so as soon as I'm done with the pregnancy, I'm using Neutrogena's Fine Fairness range.

Actually, Robert Kwon, Johnson's & Johnson's regional director for professional marketing in Asia Pacific, assured me that the range is safe for pregnant women. And I believe him but I saw that retinol is one of the active ingredients, and pregnant women are usually advised to stay away from Vitamin A. But as soon as I give birth, I'm definitely using these products.

Anyway, retinol is just one of the ingredients in Neutrogena's patented HealthyWhite Complex, which promise to "brighten, protect and deliver fair, even-toned skin for healthy, lasting radiance." The others are essential soy, niacinamide (vitamin B3), ascorbyl glucside (stabilized vitamin C) and the natraul extract of the plant portulaca. These vitamins reduce brown spots, blocks free radicals, reduces melanin formation, protects skin from redness, renews cells, and prevents pigmentation.

Aside from vitamins, it also has the minerals mica and titanium dioxide, which reflect light so you look like you're glowing. And, of course, what's a whitening line without SPF? This has broad spectrum UVA and UVB filters. And that means your sun protection is comprehensive!

The line has a cleanser (P297), a toner (P458.25), a lotion with SPF 30 PA++ (P720) and a cream (P774) and is already available in stores nationwide.

Speaking of sun protection, check out what the Summit Media editors use for sun shields:

Good Housekeeping fashion and beauty editor Pia Rojas doesn't remember the brand (it got rubbed off because she bought this pair a thousand years ago).

Editorial director and Female Network big boss Myrza Sison in Miu Miu "bubuyog" shades

Yep, that's stylish sun protection for you!

i love neutrogena but when they pulled out their facial bar for acne-prone it made me really sad. i tried emailing them to ask what happened but they did not even reply.

that is the only product that really made a huge impact on me & i don't know if i should be happy or sad that i found the perfect product but i can't buy it anymore...

i'm still grieving over it (yes!grieving~! for i can't get over it) & it made me a bit mad at neutrogena that i don't know if ill be supporting this line. but hen on the other hand, i know that neutrogena manufactures good products..
