Oops! Seems I (Cherry) forgot to write the Albion White Pure White Milk itself.
In this Summer, I have done with Pure White Milk #3, but #2 were left, what is too light for my skin. I gave a sample of Albion Exage White White Generate to Hazelnuts of Philippines, she liked it pretty much and bought a bottle. See also Personal Review of Exage White White Generate.
Talking with her, seems her skin is much oilier, and I guess Philippines is where sunnier and hotter whole a year (I can imagine there are other seasons, but not significant seasons like in Japan). I thought she might like this. And fortunately, she got better result more than I had expected!
She has Albion Skin Conditioner Essential, she used this lotion after the milk.
See how she felt 🙂

Back for another review!
Cherry sent me the Albion Exage White Pure Milk II, which is an upgrade from the previous Exage White Crystal Milk. Exage White, from what I understand, is a brightening line from Albion and is meant to be used in the summer.
This should be used after face wash, to bring back moisture to the skin after washing and to prepare the skin for other treatments (lotion, serum, cream). Because it helps skin retain moisture, it also helps the other products to absorb better.
I love the pleasant, citrusy and slightly floral scent. Compared to Excia Al milk, I find that the scent of this one is a bit stronger. It spreads easily onto the skin too. The texture is moist, but not oily or sticky. No. 2 is meant for normal skin, but they have variants for oily and extra dry as well.
Having used the entire Albion line from before, I love their milk lotions. This particular one feels soothing and slightly cooling. I love how it makes my skin moist and smooth! No redness after washing, and no breakouts. And because of its soothing properties, my skin is visibly brighter after use. Again it’s an excellent way to prep the skin for other products.
With Albion Skin Conditioner Essential
I love using this with the Albion Skin Conditioner. It’s amazing! After a week my skin was not only brighter, but luminous! I have been using it regularly and I’m now one shade lighter in my foundation. I’d say they are a good combination. To maximize the effects of the milk, feel free to use it with any of Albion’s lotions.
Quantity of applying
Another thing, Albion recommends two to three pumps for their milks, but I only use one to two pumps. I guess, because of my oily skin, this amount is sufficient enough for my face. Also, it’s worth to note that the weather here is hot and humid, so I don’t need much product to keep my skin moist.
What else can I say? I like the brightening effect very much, and will continue to use this!
Note by Cherry
Thank you Hazelnuts!
Skin Conditioner Essential is a great product, but for the person who has really sensitive skin (like me), it may be too strong to use. They say it is designed for sensitive skin, but there is big quantity of Ethanol I am sure, and I am feeling it is too much for my current skin condition.
You can replace Skin Conditioner Essential to other lotions, like Albion Exage White WHITE UP LOTION, it is much better than Skin Conditioner Essential, in person.
Secondly I envy her that her skin is one shade lighter! WOW! Ha! I did not feel that 🙁 Am I already fair? Hmm maybe no, I feel I was tanned in this summer. I guess this convention of Pure White Milk and Skin Conditioner Essential is fitting to her.
Finally, the quantity. She does not apply 3 pushes, and I guess it is pretty good for her skin. The BCs strongly recommend to apply 3 pushes, but I my recommend is changing the quantity as you want, like she does. If it is not enough moisturize your skin, apply more than 3 pushes. I even apply 6 pushes sometimes! (see the “Comparing” reviews. I apply 3 pushes for each of my sides. You know, I do 6 pushes!!! :D)
Hazelnuts, Thank you very much again!

Whether or not it helps to brighten skin, we’re unsure – although it probably could help a little – make sure you use sunscreen to protect your skin. Sunscreen is really important!
The Exage White Pure White #2 is for normal skin. #3 is for dry skin. You can choose as your skin condition, or preference. Anyway, tt’s moist and hydrating enough for my skin, but not too heavy. It’s just right.
Recently, I stayed a few nights in a hotel. As you know, in hotels, it is pretty dry. And in autumn, it was windy, chilly and dry in here Japan. My skin was often damaged and rough-looking by the dry air.
I brought some samples of the White Pure Milk #2 and #3, and just before I slept, I applied a heavy layer on my face and slept. When my skin is damaged and rough-looking, these types of emulsions usually sting, but this time, there was no pain, which was great.
But there was a perfume scent, which was so so, although I do prefer fragrance-free. After using the emulsion, my skin was looking better, and so the next night, I also used this emulsion and put on an even heavier layer. After using it a few times, my skin reverted back to its original state, where it looked much better. I think sleeping and this product saved my skin.
But to be honest, I did not know why this product was so effective and why my skin responded so well to it. And I also did not understand why people were ordering this product so often. But I get it now.
While this product worked well for me, please keep in mind that this product is purely cosmetic. It’s not a drug. There is no guarantee that it’ll help clear up a skin problem. If you do have a serious skin condition, we strongly recommend you see a dermatologist.
Bottom line: While the fragrance could be less strong, it works beautifully on stressed skin. It can help damaged and coarse-looking skin to restore itself to its optimum condition. It moisturizes and nourishes my skin brilliantly. Thumbs up!
