In this Autumn-Winter of 2017-2018, regularly I am using Cosme Decorte AQ Emulsion ER.
In AQ line, they are going to add “Whitening” for SS2018.
I got small bottles of AQ Whitening Emulsion & Lotion.
The same with Albion milks, AQ method is Milk, lotion, and cream or something. (See also Albion Skin Care Method)
Please let me share with how I felt with comparing with some other products.
In this Cosme Decorte AQ Whitening Emulsion, there are no ER or something, there is only one type of emulsion. The “Whitening” means brightening, and the brightening factor is by Kojic Acid.
General review with comparing Cosme Decorte AQ Emulsion ER
Two pushes for AQ Emulsion ER, and almost the same quantity of AQ Whitening Emulsion.
It is under the chilly weather of Feb, there were no snow, but I saw snow on the ground yesterday, I did not feel both textures are so much runny under this climate.
Taking the cotton, and applying on my half of my faces, I felt the Whitening Emulsion is a little bit runnier / softer than Emulsion ER.
Perfume and sting
I often feel something strange (mainly sting) with using the products including Kojic Acid. And I also am not a big fun of the smell of Kojic Acid what is better than artificial floral scent. It is true that I used the strong perfumed AQ Emulsions , it was really hard to find the difference of the smell, and I could not find the scent of kojic acid.
I often feel anything irritation by this AQ Whitening Emulsion.
But if you are hesitate to use the products with strong scent of flower, both are not for you.
Oil and Moisture
I am feeling my skin afterward of these emulsions, I felt Whitening side is smoother and lighter than Emulsion ER side. Indeed I never say this Whitening Emulsion is less oily. Both are oily products, if you are an oil prone, Cosme Decorte is the last brands I recommend to you.

With Cosme Decorte AQ Emulsion
Cosme Decorte AQ Emulsion is lighter than AQ Emulsion ER. See also my comparison with AQ Emulsion and AQ Emulsion ER: Cosme Decorte AQ Emulsion ER
All of the package of AQ Emulsion, and (it is the final review, actually as the order of my reviews) all the left of the AQ Whitening Emulsion.
My face was super dry with using the stronger face wash, and both AQ Emulsion and Whitening Emulsion helped my skin moisturised again. Both are oilier products, and I felt they are almost the same level of smoothness and lightness.
With Albion Excia Brightening Rich Milk
I felt AQ Emulsion ER was much richer than AW Whitening Emulsion. I had thought I should better to compare with Albion Excia AL Brightening Rich Milk first, due to the quantity of the Emulsion left on the small bottle.
This decision was a good solution. Yes, Brightening Rich Milk is richer than AQ Whitening Emulsion.
Afterward of my using, I felt the AQ Whitening Emulsion side is smoother and lighter. I felt if you are a person who feel Excia Brightening Rich Milk is too rich, I guess this AQ Whitening Emulsion is worth a try.
I say again, even I felt this AQ Whitening Emulsion is lighter than Excia Brightening Rich Milk, Cosme Decorte is a brand with oil. If you are an oil prone, this is not for you, I know.

with Albion Infinesse White Whitening Pump Milk
Infinesse White Whitening Pump is also for SS2018.
AQ Whitening Emulsion is runnier than Infinesse White.
Both are smooth and lighter texture on my face, afterward of my using.
I thought you can choose the price and perfume. For me, the affordable price is Infinesse White, and the scent is AQ Whitening.

Comparing with Pytotune Whitening Softener ER
2 pushes for Pytotune, and almost the same quantity for AQ Whitening.
I felt AQ Whitening is slightly more moisturised than Pytotune. You may be able to choose by the scent. Also, AQ Whitening is also a medicated product, and brightening factor is Kojic Acid. Which do you like?L-Ascorbic Acid 2-Glucoside or Kojic Acid?
