I recently had the chance to review a few of their products and I must tell you that I am more than pleased with everything I received. I personally sampled the Ocean Fresh body lotion and the White core whitening mask. My sister Shannon sampled the Crystal Clear Scrub and Shea Power Body Butter. Please read on to find out our views on each product.
First up the Crystal Clear Scrub in Sweet Macadamia. Shannon shares with us her thoughts on this lovely product:

I had the privilege of reviewing this corrective mask and I have to say I love it. This mask is suppose to minimize sun damage-including age spots, freckles and pigment irregularities. The box says for maximum results use the mask for 9 weeks. This is my face prior to using the mask:
As you can see from the bravely unedited photograph, my skin has made a nice improvement from the use of the Whitecore corrective mask. The smell is pleasant and the texture is very smooth and gentle on on my very sensitive skin. I am happy to say that I did not experience any harsh side effects. Even after weeks of using this product I still have the entire bottle left. Definitely a worth purchase.
I also had the chance to review the Onsen ocean fresh body lotion ($17.95) and I’m in love! The scent reminds me of New Smyrna Beach, if you have ever visited this beach then you know what this lotion smells like. I love it and would recommend it to others. I applied the lotion immediately after bathing and my skin remained moisturized the entire night. I forgot to take a separate photo of the lotion but for those who are interested, the lotion is white in color and quickly absorbs into the skin without leaving a greasy residue.
