These Brightening Moisturisers Will Give You A Fair, Radiant Complexion

Being a beauty junkie, having luminous, translucent skin is always our goal. To achieve that, it's important to use brightening moisturisers to plump and boost radiance. These are the ones we are using on rotation.
#1: Sulwhasoo Snowise Brightening Cream, $168
Its content of white ginseng saponin helps to hydrate, boost skin clarity and control melanin production. Meanwhile, white cloud grass extract soothes and boosts circulation for a healthy glow. #2: Guerlain Bee Glow Youth Moisturiser, $145
Not only does this firm, plump and strengthen skin’s internal barrier, it also contains Bee Glow, which incorporates a new generation of pearl micro-particles into its composition, which reflects light while remaining totally invisible and avoiding excess shine. #3: Sunday Riley C.E.O. C + E Antioxidant Protect + Repair Moisturiser, $92, Sephora
Vitamin C works to brighten and prevent signs of ageing while lime pearl extract, which is a natural form of AHA, helps to slough away dead skin cells for a smoother, more radiant complexion. #4: Laneige White Dew Sherbet Cream, $70
With a smooth, lightweight sherbet-like texture, this offers a cooling sensation upon application to instantly soothe and lower skin’s temperature while boosting moisture levels. It also contains the brand’s Mela-Vita Crusher, which has saururus chinensis (a herbal active) extract, truffle extract and vitamin B5 to suppress and destruct melanin formation, while delivering moisture to one’s skin. #5: Tata Harper Illuminating Moisturiser, $116.

This lightweight cream is made with three key ingredients. Aqua Ferm activates the moisture proteins found in cells and keeps your complexion hydrated. Aqua Light, which contains truffle-derived yeast extract and Western medicinal herbs, helps to suppress melanin production to even out skin tone and fight pigmentation while Poria Light firms and plumps skin to better reflect light. #7: Kenzoki Whitening Cocooning Cream (Plum Blossom), $105
Huang Qin, a flower native to China, is known to block ageing free-radicals while sunflower extract boosts the skin’s radiance. Plum essence prevents the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. #8: Caudalie Vinoperfect Cell Renewal Night Cream, $56
