A New Korean Brightening Range Promises To Give You A Dewy, Fair Complexion

Whether or not you’re a Kpop or Kdrama fan, you’ve got to admit that Korean actresses seem to have the most amazing skin. They have somehow managed to achieve fair and translucent skin, without any dryness or fragility (we’re looking at you Nicole Kidman). Think plump, moist complexions that seem to glow.

To be fair, getting that is easier said that done. This is because whitening skincare can be harsh and dehydrating. However, Laneige’s new White Dew line promises to give you radiance with a dewy finish. The collection contains a Mela-vita Crusher technology that claims to be able fill melanocytes with moisture to suppress and control melanin formation. It also has truffle extract to promote the destruction of melanin pigments, as well as vitamin B5 to soothe the skin and cultivate a healthy and hydrated environment to reduce melanin formation.

To keep skin hydrated, the range uses Phyto Sugar Water, which is infused with Trehalose and Raffinose extracted from plants. The duo is said to be able to help skin to regulate its moisture content, while also hydrating and purifying skin to boost brightness. The Laneige White Dew line contains seven products in all, but the star products of the collection are definitely the Original Ampoule Essence and Tone-Up Cream. The former is a quick working serum while the latter is a day moisturiser that immediately brightens.
