Ly-na Experiment Day 1


I keep reading in various blogs about this Ly-na Pearl cream and I decided to jump on the bandwagon! It’s funny because I remember this cream from back in the day when my mom and my aunts would all have it, but I had no idea what it was used for. And then I snagged a tub of my moms and starting using it like undereye concealer because it makes your skin lighter and pasty looking. I didn’t know at the time that it can actually physically lighten your skin! Otherwise I wouldn’t have slapped it on so carelessly. I have the Ly-na Nourish Cream in the green tub while other girls I see who are using it have the pink tub, the Pearl Cream. Mine contains pearl powder as well, but it has a higher concentration of sulfur, which is known for its acne fighting properties.

It claims to remove “blackheads, pimples, ephelis and wrinkles.” [Ephelis means freckles, I looked it up!]. The instructions have this weird precaution saying that

If your acne becomes worse, it is because you haven’t properly cleaned your skin prior to application.

That’s pretty harsh haha! That’s almost like saying “if this product doesn’t work, that’s because you are dirty, and it’s totally not our fault”. I can already imagine an Asian lady scolding me for not using the cream correctly…..moving on!

I’m going to start using it as a night cream today and I’ll update every couple of weeks or so if I see a significant change. I have to say I’m a bit worried about the skin lightening effects because my arms are already darker than my face as it is, but I guess that’s the price you pay to have those acne scars faded! And here’s the gross “before” pictures!

    The cream is available at many Asian grocery stores, for example Ranch 99 or Seafood city if you have one in your area. If not you can look online for the cream and it’s fairly inexpensive.
