Anyway, I bought this ER White Medicated skincare range because I felt that the packaging is much better than all the other skincare that Daiso sells, and I see very simple yet effective ingredients high up in the ingredients list. So I was extremely excited to try this range back when I just bought it.
I have been on this for a good 2 months now. In fact, I was using this before I tested the Hada Labo, and I switched to Hada Labo, then went back after I finished my Hada Labo, and I think I am ready to review it now!

I like the packaging, just because it looks so classic. I remember my mother used to use bottles of toner that has this cute bulb screw cap on top. It's just way too cute! Definitely part of the reason I bought.
The lotion is transparent as you can see through the bottle. It's really just toning water, and you could transfer that into a spray bottle to spritz it on your face throughout the day.
And the droplets on my hand below are from the serum. It feels thicker than the lotion/toner.
The white one below is the moisturizer. And it spreads nicely into a colorless thick lotion.
They all smell the same, which is wonderfully fragrant! I love the smell, and I think it's the smell of glycerin.
After using it for 2 months, I really don't think this works to whiten at all. It's just your most basic of basic basics skincare set. I wouldn't say it's not good, because I think they may work on people with much younger skin.
Other than not whitening, I also don't find that this is moisturizing enough for me. I have dehydrated skin, and my skin absorbs these products really quickly (haha, even my facialist has to comment on how fast I my skin sucks up the facial products to dryness). So I don't feel like this moisturizer really helps keep my skin plump throughout the day.
I applied the the serum and moisturizer to the right half of my hand, and the left is bare. haha, I don't think there will be a visible difference because these are not exfoliating or brightening products. But yeah, just thought I'd show you.
Left: bare hand. Right: serum + moisturizer.
haha, this should come first. But anyhow, dispense method is through a minimizing cap, so I always just overturn the bottle and whatever toner comes out is how much I would use. But I do count the droplets for the serum and moisturizer, and I use about 3 drops of serum and 5 drops of moisturizer.
And that's all!
I think these are okay. I don't hate it. Really, for only $2, I don't expect much.
