Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? Maybe that popular song from Bing Crosby makes you want to. Well, the odds are nil for us here in the Philippines because we only have the rainy season from June to October and the dry season from November to May.

If a white Christmas is out of the question, then why not get a whiter and fairer complexion for the holidays?

@edith.farinas has tried many whitening solutions, but still couldn’t find the best one for her skin:

“Hi Jake! I think I’ve exhausted all the whitening products out in the market. I wouldn’t mind paying premium as long as it works.”

I feel for you because it can be quite frustrating if you keep on switching products that each promise this and that. Our skin is one tough cookie to crack because it can react differently to various products that you apply. My rule of thumb is to stick to one label that best suits your whitening goals.

Mesoestetic started back in Barcelona in 1985 as a distinguished Spanish pharmacy and is now a global leader in the aesthetic medicine sector. They bring us Ultimate W+, a line of skin-care products that not only whitens your skin but also provides lightening, anti-aging, moisturizing, and protective properties. So if you don’t mind breaking the bank in order to get all these benefits, then this line is what you need.

Ultimate W+ Whitening Cream unifies skin tone, gradually reducing dark spots and increasing luminosity. It also combats and helps prevent the appearance of fine lines. Ultimate W+ Whitening Spot Eraser is an ultra-concentrated whitening treatment indicated for localized treatment of dark spots on the face, neck, bust area, and hands.

If you’re into serums, then use Ultimate W+ Whitening Essence. It is an intensive serum with a whitening and antioxidant effect on the skin. It also prevents and significantly decreases the appearance of dark spots and fine wrinkles, resulting in an even skin tone. Meanwhile, Ultimate W+ Whitening Integrity Mask effectively prevents and reduces the appearance of dark spots. It also has a moisturizing and soothing effect.

The line also has the Ultimate W+ BB Cream. Available in two shades (Light and Medium), this multi-action cream moisturizes, unifies, and brightens the tone of the skin instantly and naturally. It also reduces dark spots and blemishes, in addition to preventing and combating the appearance of wrinkles and expression lines. Use this to get maximum, even, and constant photoprotection against UVA and UVB rays.

If you are into ingestible skin care, Ultimate W+ Whitening Elixir is a drinkable nutricosmetic with whitening and antioxidant action, especially indicated for unifying the skin tone, reducing the appearance of dark spots, and slowing skin aging. This prevents the melanin synthesis process and protects against photo-oxidation caused by UV radiation.

Finally, try these: Ultimate W+ Whitening Foam cleans, purifies, removes traces of makeup, and eliminates dead cells and impurities; Whitening Toning Lotion, has a brightening, mattifying, and regulating effect that optimizes the effectiveness of treatments applied afterwards; and Whitening Antiperspirant Roll-On not only regulates and reduces excessive perspiration thanks to its long-duration (48 hours) antibacterial and antiperspirant agents, it can also lighten your underarms, as well as prevent the appearance of dark spots.
