2 Weeks on GT Papaya Lotion: Yay or Nay?

So everyone knows I'm faaar from being a beauty or skin care blogger, but when GT Cosmetics asked me to try their newest offering (of course after doing a little research) I was more than happy to give it a shot. :) Other than I'm always on a constant pursuit for brands that I can trust, I always like to support products that are locally made. I am a huge believer of the skill of our underrated local industry. Besides, No one knows Asian skin more than Asians; and this being a Cebu-based brand just hits home. I actually really read about GT Cosmetics before trying this and so far, I'm impressed because they seem to really know their craft well, scientifically. They take their studies very seriously before launching a product in the market.

GT Papaya Lotion is a 3-in-1 lotion that promises to do whitening, moisturizing, and has SPF 40 sunblock. It contains collagen, a skin vitamin that helps reduce signs of aging and enzymes from pure papaya extracts to exfoliate skin and reveal newer cells thus making skin whiter, smoother, and younger looking.

The GT Papaya Lotion came in a 100ml easy to squeeze tube with a flip top cap.
 I gotta say it's one of the pretties scents I've ever tried, like milky papaya. Smells clean, fruity, light, and delicious.  I like unscented or mild smelling lotions that leave a subtle delicious scent on the skin and this was is that exactly. It's also very easily spreadable. Not too watery/ runny, not too dense/ thick. 
I can feel my skin really absorbing this lotion and keeping it feeling fresh and supple without the sticky feel although it isn't really the type that lasts the whole day. Re-application sometime in in the day will be needed.I would have loved to feel it lock in a thicker film of moisture on my skin that makes it feel so nourishing but I guess that's the trade off when you are focusing on more benefits than 1.

I've been using this product for 2 weeks now ( After getting toast 2 consecutive weekends at the beach, I felt like it was the best time to test it out) and so far so good.  I can't say I'm back to my normal complexion already but I do feel that I lightened a bit more, and faster than usual.

The bottle contains details such as ingredients, directions for use, and its promise. It also contains the expiry date so you make sure you get a fresh product.

Thank you for this, GT! :)
