In Albion’s 4 steps method: 1) Wash, 2) Milk, 3) Lotion, 4) Wrap, this serum is a kind of special care. According to Albion they recommend to use after the lotion.
Albion changed formulas for Excia AL Whitening Line to Excia Brightening Line, but Albion Excia AL Whitening Brilliancy Serum (new for SS2018) is kept.
I had less interest on this product with checking what Japanese reviewers are saying, I had newly got samples, and let me share how I felt. In conclusion first, as I had thought it is not for me.
I applied it on my face, just after my face washing to know about the product. I felt it is not quite moisturizing my face. I need oil for my face, but the surface is turning to drier. Please remember that it is not for wrapping, it is a special care. I need something moisturizers.
The brightening factor is Kojic Acid. I don’t think Kojic Acid is fitting to my skin. I felt it makes my skin drier. Checking what Japanese reviewers are saying, those who insisting as an Alcohol prone are also saying there are something strange/ or it made their skin drier. I felt something slight irritation with applying it, I am not sure whether it is due to the dryness by Alcohol or Kojic Acid, also it can be due to I applied it on my face directly. I washed my face.
I am feeling it is not for me, but it is not always meaning it is also bad for you. Also, when you feel something irritation with using skin care/ makeup products, please stop using. Those are not for you, at lease current your skin condition.
