Review and Giveaway: EQUITANCE Brightening Skincare and Collagen EX

Hi lovelies,

I have been introduced to a skincare range and collagen drink that help to keep my skin hydrated and radiant, and I would like to share it with all of you. The brand is called EQUITANCE from Japan.

EQUITANCE Brightening Collection took 18 years to develop as the company went through R&D to examine and compare the whitening effect of hundreds of different kinds of ingredients.

General whitening components suppress the activity of an enzyme called tyrosinase, which generates dark spots on skin. Linoleic acid in EQUITANCE on the other hand, promotes the breakdown of the enzyme.

The first product that I would like to share about is their Vitology Premium Rich Collagen EX.
It contains 5,000mg of collagen with Du Zhong leaf and Korean ginseng extracts added to enhance the skin's ability to regenerate collagen.

There are a total of 10 bottles in a box.

This collagen drink supports skin elasticity and radiant beauty from within the body. No artificial coloring agents or preservatives are added. 
In terms of taste, there is no fishiness in taste or smell but a sweet, fruity, citrus flavour which makes this collagen drink very tasty and a pleasure to consume.

After consuming it at night, I can always look forward to a clearer, radiant and smaller pores the next morning. I am totally sold by the effectiveness of this collagen drink and I enjoy consuming it very much!

My rating: 5/5

For the Brightening skincare collection, I will be reviewing this Brightening Toning Lotion.
This product works to clarify and soften skin to maximize absorption of moisturizer and gives the skin the brightening results.

The whitening ingredient "linoleic acid" in this lotion helps to reduce the production of melanin, which reduces the appearance of both dark spots and freckles. The moisturizing ingredients - shell ginger extract and cherry blossom leaf extract keep the skin moisturized. The lotion prepares the skin for the serum and cream.

The product comes with a seal to keep the lotion fresh right up to the point of opening.

The opening of the bottle is just nice, making it easy to dispense the lotion without causing spillage.
This lotion works like a toner, helping to clear the skin surface of impurities and to prep the skin for better absorption of  others products applied after this. 

I am quite happy with how this lotion helped to cleanse the impurities and prepped my skin for the next step of skincare application. There is definitely brightening of skin observed after usage. My only concern was the alcohol ingredient in this product. As I have combination skin, this lotion definitely worked well for the oilier parts of my face but for dry areas like my cheeks, it caused a little discomfort. However, after application of the rest of the skincare products, it balanced of the hydration level of my skin and the discomfort was gone, so I feel that the products in this range complement one another.

My rating: 3.5/5

Next product is the Brightening Serum + Spot Corrector.
This product targets dark spots and uneven skin tone to improve complexion using their blend of brightening ingredients.

Brightening Serum+ Spot Corrector uses effective whitening mechanism with Linoleic acid. 
This product sold over 2 million pieces in Japan. With daily use, this brightening regimen brings clarity, brightness and radiance to the skin. 88 % of women reported diminished appearance of dark spots*.
*Based on a clinical study conducted over 6 months and evaluated by dermatologists.

This product comes in a tube which is easy to control the amount of product to dispense.
As this product is quite strong in efficacy, I only need to apply a very small amount for my whole face.
When I first started using, I was unaware of how strong this product was and I applied 2 pearl size of this product to my whole face and it resulted in skin breakouts after 2 days. I learnt my lesson and reduced the quantity of this product and gradually, my acne problem was under control and my skin revealed its clarity. I learnt how to use this product the hard way but after knowing the right way to use it, I must say that this product is really awesome and effective!  

My rating: 4/5

The last product in this range is the Hydrating Brightening Cream.
This final step locks in moisture and nourishes the skin with the blend of key ingredients delivered through their patented technology.

It contains not only the effective whitening ingredient "linoleic acid", but also many moisturizing ingredients such as "shell ginger extract", "cherry blossom leaf extract", "shea butter" and "yogurt fitrate". As it maintains the ideal balance between oil and moisture, it will give the greatest whitening and moisturizing effect when using it at the end of your skincare routine.

This cream comes with a tab and a spatula to keep the product fresh and free from contamination.

This product comes in a soft, gel-cream texture that spreads out very well and with a pearl size amount, it is sufficient for my whole face. When applied in the right amount (not in excess), it gets absorbed by the skin rather quickly and does not leave the face feeling greasy or sticky at all. However, when applied in excess, it can make the skin feel greasy, so only apply the amount that your skin needs!

My rating: 4/5
