"I am diamond, you know I glow up", I am sure you're familiar with this lyric aren't you? 

Frankly, that sentence reflects on how I feel after using the newest skincare from Scarlett Whitening which are Brightly Essence Toner and Glowtening Serum. As you know, I've been using Scarlett Whitening's products quite many times from their body care to face care since approximately 2 years ago and I always in love how those products suit me very well. Nah, this time I was quite surprised that they also release Glowtening Serum which I thought it's similar with Brightly Ever After serum. Is it true? Let's reveal the truth and my honest opinion about these two products, shall we begin now?


What it is:
Essence toner from Scarlett which contains Vitamin C, Glutathione, Witch Hazel extract, Jeju Propolis extract, Allantoin, Niacinamide, and grape water. This toner suits for normal, dry, combination skin.
  • Vitamin C : to improve production of collagen
  • Glutathione : brighten up skin
  • Witch Hazel extract : calm down inflammation and tighten pores
  • Jeju Propolis extract : regenerate skin to make skin texture smooth 
  • Allantoin : to moisturize, calm down, and anti-irritation
  • Niacinamide : help to tighten pores
  • Grape Water : to moisturize, calm down, and freshen up skin
How to use:
Pour the toner onto palm and gently pat onto face. You can also use face cotton by pouring sufficient amount of essence toner then gently wipe onto face.


Sturdy plastic bottle in soft pink color, comes with the safely sealed paper box. Bottle pump can take out the product in sufficient amount. The description, ingredients, PAO (period after opening), and expired date are displayed on the bottle.


Watery texture with super mild pleasant scent and non-sticky.


One thing that makes me curious to try this toner is because of the pink beads (you can see from the picture above). The beads is actually contains Phyto Squalene which is good as anti inflammation for redness or acne skin  This toner absorbs easily into my skin and it gives cooling effect after use (and it's pretty obvious). I like to use it with my own hands so the product can adjust my skin temperature before it absorbs into my skin. As it contains vitamin C, I prefer to use this product for my night skincare and I can feel my skin feels moisturized, super fresh, and springy the day after.


  • Light, sturdy, safely sealed packaging
  • Mild, non sticky texture
  • Absorbs easily into skin
  • Skin feels moisturized, fresh, and springy
  • Cooling effect which quite strong for me
PAO: 6 months
Rating: 4 out of 5
Price: IDR 75.000 (around $5) / 100ml


What it is:
This serum contains 16.5% active ingredients which are Tranexamide Acid, Niacinamide, Aloe Vera extract, Allantoin, Licorice extract, Calendula Oil, Geranium Oil, and Olive Oil. This serum claims help to:
  • Brighten up skin
  • Achieve skin glow
  • Reduce acne scars
  • Make skin looks healthier
  • Disguise fine lines and dark spots
  • Calm and repair skin barrier
How to use:
Apply 2-3 drops of serum and gently massage until it absorbs completely into skin.


Light yet sturdy glass bottle comes with safely sealed paper box. The pipette size is quite short but it is able to take sufficient amount of product. The ingredients, instruction, and PAO is displayed on the bottle and paper box.

Thick, creamy texture with slightly strong fresh scent.

I apply this serum after applying the essence toner. From the texture, this serum is more like lotion than serum, slightly sticky and takes a while for it to completely absorb into skin. It moisturizes skin very well and makes skin looks dewy and fresh. Just like the essence toner, I use this serum at night before bed because of the rich texture. The next day, I feel my skin healthier and the stickiness is actually disappear.


  • Light, sturdy, safely sealed packaging
  • Moisturizes skin
  • Makes skin looks healthier, dewy, and fresh
  • Thick, slightly sticky texture
  • Strong scent
PAO: 6 monts
Rating : 3.5 out of 5
Price: IDR 75.000 (around $5) / 15ml

From the before after picture, you can see my skin looks even, glowing, and healthier. Although they don't calm down the redness, but as brightening products, Scarlett never fails me indeed. I do recommend you to try the whole face care set, either brightening or acne care - for a maximum result. The Glowtening Serum is completely different with Brightly Ever After serum indeed. If you're looking for a rich texture, you might like to try this one!

Have you tried this product before? Kindly let me know in comment :)
