Product Review: Shiseido WHITE LUCENT Intensive Spot Targeting Serum +

I started to use Shiseido WHITE LUCENT Intensive Spot Targeting Serum early this year and this serum works well on my acne scars and brown spots. End of last month, I received an invitation to attend the Shiseido WHITE LUCENT Intensive Spot Targeting Serum + launch.
This is the new Shiseido WHITE LUCENT Intensive Spot Targeting Serum + with Shiseido's newest Technology, Melano Sensor System+. This serum will only be available in Spring 2012.:)
The Shiseido WHITE LUCENT Intensive Spot Targeting Serum + comes in a convenient and hygienic pump dispenser packaging.

 I usually use 2 pumps for my whole face in each application.
 Product Description:
  • A superior anti-spot serum with an intensified power formulation exclusively created to diminish stubborn dark spots.
  • Shiseido-exclusive Melano Sensor System+ now targets troubling spots by crushing melanin at its core and stopping the vicious cycle of dark-spot formation.
  • Persistent spots are reduced and future pigmentation is prevented, to even out skin tone for perfectly radiant skin.
The ingredients for Shiseido WHITE LUCENT Intensive Spot Targeting Serum +.
FYI, the Shiseido WHITE LUCENT Intensive Spot Targeting Serum was introduced in 2010 featuring Melano Sensor System to counteract spots  in 3 unique steps:

1.) Preventing melanin (before spots form) 
2.) Targeting the root of spot formation (as spots begin to form) 
3.)Reducing melanin (after spot formation)
2 years later,
Shiseido's newest technology - Melano Sensor System + has the 4th step against persistent dark spots!
4.) Remove signs of melanin smoothly

Shiseido WHITE LUCENT Intensive Spot Targeting Serum + has light and smooth texture. Its texture quite watery and quickly absorb into my skin. It leaves my skin hydrated and supple. 
The smell is pleasant for me but my sister dislike its alcohol scent (the scent is a little too strong for her liking).

I use this serum twice a day after softening lotion (toner) and before my moisturizer. As I mention earlier,  I usually use 2 pumps for my whole face in each application.
If you want to achieve an optimal results follow these steps:
1.) Apply to forehead, nose, cheeks and chin (See illustration A).
2.) Smooth over entire face and massage into skin from the center of the face outwards (See illustration B).
3.) Repeat massage three times consecutively.

I have been using the Shiseido WHITE LUCENT Intensive Spot Targeting Serum + for about a week. My skin look more radiant and smooth.  My newly form acne scars look a little lighten.
I would recommend this serum to those who has dark spots, age spots, acne scars/marks, darkened pores and uneven skin tone.
