Fairness & Flawless: Organic skincare products

Fairness & Flawless is an organic skincare line which offers BFAD & FDA approved 100% dermatologist tested derma products that cater to different skin types, problems and needs. They have a number of franchisees all over Philippines and most (if not all of them) have Facebook pages, Instagram accounts and blogs set up for their businesses.

A couple of months ago, I shared a booth at a bazaar with some of my friends where I met the owner of the Panay franchise of Fairness & Flawless, Ms. Raissa Cayaban, and had the chance to talk about the products with her.

Overview of their products:
Products are sold by sets or by piece.
Here is the package that I received from Fairness & Flawness:
The package contains:

1 bar 100g Mild whitening feminine intimate soap
1 bar 100g Powerhouse gluta, kojic & milk soap
Pinkish glow cream
Collagen elastin cream
Sunblock foundation with SPF 45
Lip-ex lip exfoliator
Lip and cheek tint
Here is my in-depth review of the products:
Mild whitening feminine intimate soap (pictured left above)

This intimate soap doesn't only cleanse and freshen us up down there, but it also whitens discolored areas making our intimate areas fairer. Packed with just the right amount of PH, F&F's feminine soap is a must for us ladies!

How to use:
Use regularly on your intimate area and rinse thoroughly.

Initial observation:
The soap has a smooth texture, has a faint mint smell and it is light pink/lavender in color.

My thoughts:
I feel refreshed after using the soap most probably because of the mint element but it doesn't irritate the skin.

Powerhouse gluta, kojic & milk soap (pictured right above)

Widely known as the famous F&F GKMS soap, whitens the skin without compensating its hydration. May or may not cause micro-exfoliation.

How to use:
Use every time you shower. Lather on the body for 3-5 minutes then rinse. Can also be used on the face, rinse immediately.

Initial observation:
The soap has a semi-smooth texture, a bit grainy; it smells creamy like milk and it is off-white in color.

My thoughts:
My skin feels smooth afterwards, micro-exfoliating, and smells like milk. I don't really have a say about the lightening effect because I already have light skin and I only used 1 bar.
Pinkish glow cream

How to use:
Apply once to twice a day or as advised to maximize results. Will give your skin radiance and that pinkish glow!
Initial observation:
It has a creamy consistency, has a very smooth texture, smells like lotion and it is light pink in color.
My thoughts:
The cream feels smooth, refreshing and very light on the skin though it is a bit sticky after application but it's not a big of a deal. It gave me a natural pink glow after a couple of days of using it.

Tip: 
I use it on days when I feel like my skin is dull and lacks color, usually before I apply make-up or the sunblock foundation.
Collagen elastin cream

A good anti-aging cream prevents wrinkles and tightens our saggy skin. It also acts as an anti-oxidant making our skin clear from pimples and acne. It also heals acne scars making them lighter.

How to use:
Use once to twice a day. Apply thin layer over face and neck.
Initial observation:
It has a creamy consistency, has a very smooth texture, smells like any other day or night cream and it is white in color.
My thoughts:
It feels smooth, refreshing and very light on the skin though a bit sticky after application but it's not a big of a deal. It lightened my acne scars in just a few days.

Tip: 
I prefer to use it at night since the skin repairs itself while we sleep. Our skin undergoes catabolysis, an activity that helps skin cells eliminate internal debris that can cause cellular damage. This process reaches its peak at night while we sleep.
Sunblock foundation with SPF 45

Sunblock is a beauty essential to prevent us from acquiring sun spots and worsening our skin problems. Sunblock foundation in Beige adapts to your skin color over a few minutes.

How to use:
Apply thinly over face and neck to ensure complete sun protection.
Initial observation:
It has light to medium coverage, has a creamy consistency, semi-smooth texture, smells like BB cream or any regular foundation, no distinct smell of sunblock and it is pinkish-nude/beige in color.
My thoughts:
It feels lightweight on the skin it's as if you're not wearing any product on the face. The coverage is fine, the SPF 45 is decent enough for everyday use but it can be a bit tricky to blend. It can leave a faint white cast if not blended properly but if done correctly, the color easily adapts to my natural skin color. It lasted me the whole day about 10-12 hours.

Tip: 
Can be used alone as part of daily make-up; no need for foundation or BB cream.
Lip-ex lip exfoliator

How to use:
Use 2-3 times a week. Rub on the lips for 1-2 minutes then rinse.
Initial observation:
It is very pigmented, has a semi-solid consistency, has a grainy texture, smells a bit fruity and sweet and it is bright pink in color.
My thoughts:
It easily removes dry skin, very exfoliating but leaves a greasy and sticky residue after washing it off.

Tip:
Keep refrigerated to keep it compact since it has shea butter and it also feels nice to use when it's cold. I use it at night before I sleep twice a week, usually mid-week and the weekend. I prefer to wipe it off than to wash because it removes all the product and leaves less residue that way.
Lip and cheek tint

How to use:
Dab on the lips or cheeks desired.
Initial observation:
It is very pigmented, has a semi-creamy consistency, has a smooth texture, no distinct smell and it is bright red in color.
My thoughts:
It is moisturizing for the first 3 hours and also lasts about 3 hours without re-application and eating. I like that it is of dual purpose and it's handy. What I don't like about it is it can dry up after 3 hours and the messy application.

Tip:
Can be used alone by keeping the rest of the face bare if you want a laid-back look. Dab only.

I'm really picky with the products I put on my face and body so, I normally stick to what I'm used to but I must say I really like Fairness & Flawless. I have incorporated these products in my everyday routine and I'm now thinking of purchasing the other products. What's great about this skincare line is the fact that it's organic and affordable.
