Bio-Essence Tanaka White Review

No secret that I've jumped onto the brightening/whitening products bandwagon and the latest product that quenched it was Bio-essence's Tanaka White series Double Whitening cream and their 4X Intensive Whitening serum. Sounds like some pretty serious stuff right?!

The key ingredient used for one of Bio-essence's latest range is Tanaka, also known as Thanakha. It has a rich history in Myanmar as it is a traditional whitening secret for more than 2000 years! The cultural and practical practice of applying Tanaka on the skin has stood the test of time and is widely used to cool and refresh the skin while protecting it from the sun the natural way too.

Tanaka White Double Whitening cream comes with SPF 20 to protect against harmful UV rays. Together with Tanaka Extract and Tranexamic Acid to suppress excessive production of melanin while keeping the skin moisturized with Hyaluronic Acid.
Apparently, Tanaka extract shields the skin from external pollutants thus keeps the skin cool and moisturized!
Since it's a day cream, the texture is light and not greasy nor heavy after application on the face. My skin feels cooler after applying it too!
It also leaves a light floral scent and gets absorb into the skin almost instantly so I love how it doesn't leave any residue at all. I'm using this as a daytime moisturizer now and it's such a joy to use it!

The star product, Tanaka White 4X Intensive White serum helps to fight darkness on the outside and work fairness from within. Containing 4 of the greatest whitening ingredients: alpha-Arbutin, Tanaka extract, Kojic Acid and Tranexamic Acid to ensure that it will provide highly intensive whitening and brightening effect for a more luminous, fairer and radiant skin. Suitably named the 4X Intensive White serum, the serum also promises a superior whitening effect with just 4 days of application!

Tanaka White 4X Intensive White serum effectively lightens existing pigments and spots, events out skin tone while moisturizing and cools the skin. Thus, the skin exudes radiance to reveal a smooth, fair and healthy looking complexion.
The thing I love most about this product is how it feels on my skin! With a slightly watery texture, the product gets absorbed into my skin easily while only leaving behind a light floral scent.

If you're looking for an effective while light on the wallet option for brightening skincare products, I would definitely recommend you to try the Bio-essence Tanaka White range! Available at our local drugstores (Watson, Guardian..), they are easily accessible too.
