Back to Back: IWhite Korea Aqua Moisturizer Whitening Vita Review plus Giveaway

 I will be doing this new series on my blog entitled Back to Back. I will be doing 2 successive posts within the day on two similar products not exactly dupes but products in the same category like concealer reviews  or 2 moisturizers - one is high end and the other is affordable. For my first B2B post, I will be doing moisturizers review. I received this Iwhite Korea Aqua Moisturizer a week ago. Iwhite Korea is very popular because of their nose pack which is my fave from their skincare line. I honestly don't have high expectations on this product. Having dry skin, most water based moisturizers don't work well with my skin. 

More about this moisturizer:
"IWhite Aqua Moisturizer is a unique water based moisturizer that deeply hydrates your skin with its natural and non greasy formula. It leaves a cool, oil-free and refreshing feeling on the skin after application"

Contains natural active ingredients that effectively help:
1. Prevent premature ageing
2. Protect the skin from cellular damage
3. Hydrate, and
4. Maintain firmness of skin

Active ingredients: Mulberry Root Extract, Panax Ginseng root Extract,  and Green Tea Leaf Extract
Made in Korea
50ml : 120 pesos, sachet 27 pesos (I am not sure with the price but that is what I remembered)

Despite the promises stated by Iwhite, I was honestly hesitant to try their moisturizer. Why? Firstly, I am very happy with my Avene Hydrance Primer and the other reason is that I am not familiar with the brand. When I had the chance to speak with Jamie from Iwhite, I was very honest and I did not hesitate to ask, "Made in Korea ba talaga yan?" I have his notion that this brand is just made here in the Philippines because of its price. She answered "YES, It is made in Korea and owned by Koreans." Bongga!

I first tried the one in sachet so in case I do not like it, the tube will be given to my readers or to a friend who wants to try it. After trying it, I am now hiding all the sachets and my extra tube because this moisturizer instantly became a household favorite. Lahat sila gusto gamitin!!! From my mom to my brother, they really like this moisturizer. My mother even told me, "Wag mo yan ipapamigay sa giveaway mo!" (Nashokot naman ako! Threat ba yan Ma??) Well, I really hope Iwhite gives me more stocks because I am we are in love with this moisturizer.
This Moisturizer comes in a gel form but ones you start rubbing it on your skin, water molecules are formed. When I first tried it, I immediately exclaimed, "WOW!! ANG GALING!" haha Naamaze ako bakit ba? This has a very fresh subtle scent. This moisturizer is very light and extremely fast absorbing. Once dried up, it leaves a nice smooth velvety finish on the skin. It works well on my skin especially if I do not have dry patches. What makes this moisturizer extra special is that it doubles as my primer. What?Primer? Yes, primer. One of its ingredients is Glycerin. In case you did not know, Glycerin is a good moisturizing agent and acts as a good primer as well. I noticed that everytime I use this moisturizer, it turns my face into a flawless canvass and makes my powder/foundation last a bit longer but nothing at par to those heavy duty primers in the market. It just makes a good primer for everyday wear. Also, whenever, I use this I can skip makeup base like cc/bb cream or liquid foundation and just use concealer and powder. 
This moisturizer dries to a semi matte-dewy finish. It has been making face look so good even without makeup on. It did not irritate my skin nor caused me any breakouts. My only concern is that it does not work well with my concealers and liquid foundations that have drier texture or gives off a matte finish. When used with a concealer or foundation of such sort, this makes my face look drier than usual. Also, whenever I use this, I need more than a pea size amount. Sometimes, I apply 2-3 layers of moisturizer. My usage level was very high that the moisturizer that I opened a week ago is now almost half empty. 
Overall, this is a very very good moisturizer. The price is very affordable. It comes in a lightweight tube and in sachets. I suggest try the ones in sachets first to know if this will work for you. This works well on me (dry- normal skin type), mature skin (my mom loves it as well), and acne prone (my brother is using this also).

Oh before ending this post, let me share with you this wonderful verse from yesterday's Sunday service:

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,  since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

Colossians 3:23-24

  1. Joined Ms. Donnarence! ❤️❤️❤️

  2. Hope to win so that my wife and even me can try it. Thanks a lot Ms. Donna. :)

  3. Like you I am hesitant to try products that are not recommended by friends but this one is promising! Thanks for the review. Hope I will win so that I can try this and will share it to my husband too. :)

  4. 27 pesos for each sachet or for a 3-pack of sachets (the usual in supermarkets)? This seems like a great, lightweight moisturizer for oily skin. Too bad I already bought a new facial moisturizer! But well, I can always alternate it with this :)

  5. First of all, I would like to say a big thanks for sharing this article. It is very important to keep your skin moisturized in all season. Use Sakare products to get beautiful skin.

  6. I was actually a big fan of I-White when I was in college. My classmate suggested to used it with my pimpled face. It worked for awhile but sadly the pimples kept coming back. I think I-white is not compatible with my skin. I love their moisturizer and the nose pack is truly a winner!

  7. Thank you for the review. I would like to try it too.

  8. Hope to win! my first time to join here!!

  9. I love iWhite Korea products! Hope to win! :)
