L'Oreal White Perfect Laser: Week 6 Update
A few weeks ago south of Sydney, I took the plunge. Off a plane at 14,000 feet! I think the wind blew off some of my freckles.
Or maybe not. I've been using L'Oreal Paris White Perfect Laser products in an eight-week trial. I've been recording the progress in my first and second posts (read those for more details and "before" photos).
I'd brought along the products for my Sydney trip, and I was grateful for the very moisturising All-Round Protection Whitening Cream in the Australian winter. My skin simply drank it up.
After six weeks of use, I think my smaller freckles have disappeared. I used to have so many. Well, the bigger ones I still have plenty of - those are probably permanent but even they seem to have lightened a bit.
Anyway, I know I'll never be freckle-free because in my case, they come back so easily after a day in the sun. But that's fine with me because it's always good to be out and about! Nothing beats some fresh air, sunshine and vitamin D. But if you spend lots of extended time in the sun, you should definitely slather on sun protection regularly!
Skydiving is one of those life-changing moments. For some, it's a personal triumph over fear. For others, a high-adrenaline thrill like no other (just ask the instructors who have done it 15,000 times). I was really nervous before rolling off the plane, but afterwards, you just feel like you can do anything!
Fear stops you, courage frees you. It's true.
I hear that paragliding can actually be more scary (you're zipping by so much closer to the ground), so maybe that's my next challenge. We saw some people doing that while we were at this scenic cliff overlooking the beautiful coastal hamlet.
Will share more about skydiving and the gorgeous coast of New South Wales in a later post.
Stay tuned also for the final L'Oreal Paris White Perfect Laser update at the end of week eight.
