Kose’s hydrating range, Infinity, now comes with a new whitening addition to the family— Realizing White XX serum.
Launched last year, Infinity is Kose’s answer to perfect hydration. This extensive range consists of cleansing cream, face wash, lotions, serums, creams, mask and eye cream. To complete the circle, Kose introduces a whitening serum that brings you the best of both worlds. Realizing White XX serum ($148 for 40ml) reaches deep, persistent causes of dark spots and suppresses melanin production. The runny serum feels almost oil-free and is well-absorbed by the skin. It also provides moisture and improves resilience of the skin.
The key ingredient, Koji acid, is responsible for its whitening effort. This natural substance is found in rice malt, which is used to make sake and miso. Since its discovery in 1907, scientists have been researching on this acid. In 1988, it is recognised as an active whitening ingredient.
Go get it if… you have oily and pigmented skin. This light-textured serum gets absorbed readily. The light flora scent is also a plus too. Great for day use.
