This is the best moisturiser I have ever used.The most outstanding aspects of the Serum Cream were:1) my skin absorbs it and it was hydrating and moisturising for the entire night/day and 2) it doesn't break me out. I make the second point with confidence having finished the entire jar. I tend to get clogged pores especially in the area under my eyes, where the texture can be obvious. This is the first moisturiser that I have used up (yay!) as it suited my skin so well.I have tried high-end and budget moisturisers, from La Mer to Cetaphil, which were either not hydrating or moisturising enough, poorly formulated (didn't sink in and stayed as greasy layer on my skin), couldn't handle a change in season (e.g. harsh winter wind, changes in humidity), and/or gave me pimples. I used the Suqqu Moisture Serum Cream from early winter to late spring, and its performance was consistent despite environmental changes.I purchased the entire moisture range with the pink packaging, which included the Suqqu Moisture Repair Essence N, the Moisture Hydro Lotion and Moisture Serum Cream. The Serum Cream has a lightweight texture between a gel and a cream that doesn't spread as much as the Sisley Black Rose Cream. It sinks in quickly, feels comfortable, and plays well with sunscreen and makeup. I don't think it has 'actives' but it is soothing, moisturising, and doesn't cause any clogged pores. This is my holy grail moisturiser.I will note that all of the Suqqu Moisture range is heavily fragranced with a floral scent. I personally didn't experience any negative effect, but try to get a sample first if you have a sensitive nose or if your skin is sensitive to fragrance. The price is high so I am trying the Sisley Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream, because it is cheaper per gram, not because I am trying to find something better. If I were to go on a trip or if my skin was having issues, I would buy the Suqqu Moisture Serum Cream.

I'm heartbroken to leave a critical review. I had such high expectations and hopes buying this foundation from Selfridges, given the price tag, Suqqu's reputation, and the numerous glowing reviews of Chinese/Japanese beauty bloggers and YouTubers.Let's start with the positives. The coverage is a medium to full, I can use this foundation as concealer by dotting and blending a bit under my eyes and over redness. I can also use a concealer brush to pat on more foundation over problem areas. The finish is quite beautiful, not dewy or bare-skin but it does have a subtle, non-sparkle glow. The result is skin that looks polished and 'expensive'.It also has SPF 30 with the elegant texture true to its Japanese roots. I always use SPF 50 PA+++ sunscreen under my makeup, but it's nice to know my foundation is layering on the sun protection.If you have dry skin, it's vital that you moisture properly before applying the foundation. It's not moisturising, despite being re-named 'Extra Rich', and it cracks, settles, and overall highlights dryness and dehydration. If your skin is plump and hydrated, you probably will notice no fault. But if, like me, you experience bouts of dryness and sit in a air-conditioned heated room all day, this foundation won't be friendly at the end of an 9-hour day. While it may look beautiful freshly applied, after 5-6 hours I can see some signs of dryness especially around my nose, and by the 9th hour mark, I am ready to take off my makeup, given that my bare skin would look better.Packaging is another thing worthy of note. The foundation is housed in a luxurious, heavy glass jar with a gold mirror-finished lid. The upside is you can control precisely how much foundation you take and get the last scoop out. The downside is it's messy and the foundation gets into the crevices and smears on the lid. I like to scoop out a week's worth of product and depot it into a Muji container. The complimentary spatular is very helpful.All in all, a good foundation for normal to oily skin and I'd caution ladies and men with dry to very dry skin to purchase with care.EDIT: It's summer now and my skin has recovered from dryness. Previously I didn't understand the reviews saying that the finish gets better the longer you wear it, but I understood today when I wore it from 11AM to 9PM (10 hours), it was so gorgeous and natural-looking towards the end of the night but somehow retained its coverage.

I love this mask so much. First bought it while on a work trip when my skin was freaking out and hyper sensitive. I was desperate for a moisturising mask to calm my skin down and bought it after reading a review of it on A Model Recommends. At the time I was breaking out with whiteheads, blackheads and deep cystic acne, had peeling dry skin around my chin and mouth, and had what looked like spots of chemical burns on my cheeks. After only one night the difference I saw was amazing. The skin around my chin wasn’t flaking anymore, the rough, red, sensitised skin had calmed down, softened and looked smoother. My dry cheeks were even bouncy! And while it didn’t clear up my acne/break out (and doesn’t claim to do so) - it didn’t cause any new spots, and the existing spots looked less red and inflamed. My skin has calmed down significantly since then, and I continue to use this about once a week. Every time I do I wake up with smoother, brighter-looking skin that feels super hydrated and bouncy to touch. I cannot recommend this highly enough. A little goes a long way. The product is clear/white and has a glue-like texture. The SA explained how to apply a thin layer from the centre of the face outwards, apparently you don’t want the product to turn white as you apply it so you should avoid rubbing back and forth. After leaving on for 5 mins, dab away any excess product with tissues (I place a layer of tissue over my face and then just peel the tissue off rather than wiping). Then rub the remaining product in and leave overnight. I personally love a leave-on mask because it means fewer steps in my routine!The hygienic tube packaging is a bonus and is great for travelling. It is also excellent for keeping skin hydrated if you like doing masks on long haul flights, and applying it is very discreet which is perfect if like me you find it somewhat embarrassing to sit next to strangers on a plane with a sheet mask on your face.Quite expensive, £45 for a tube of 2.45 oz/ 70 g, but I wouldn’t hesitate to repurchase.

I bought a Suqqu lipstick at their counter at Selfridges in London , and saw the new Nude foundation and got a sample , and then purchased .I loved it , and when I saw some samples on e-Bay for the Blooming Glow primer I got those too . I am really in love with how my skin looks with these two products . The primer has a very thin consistency , but when applied it just gives a lovely glowy natural finish .I have never used a primer before , thinking it was unnecessary .These prices ARE insane , it’s true , but I feel the way my skin looks with them is worth it : it’s my face , after all ! If you baulk at the expense , try to get samples . I highly recommend this product :)

This my absolute favorite palette for pink/peachy spring season eyeshadows. The yellow highlighter, the creamy peach and the matte pink make such a gorgeous gradation on the eyes with minimum blending effort, that even though I prefer simple and quick cream stick shadows in the mornings, this powder is still easy enough to apply in a pinch. The brown is rich and pigmented, a good coffee matte brown that works great as a liner for this look. I use the peach shadow as my transition shade in the daytime, but in the nighttime I often accentuate the crease with a touch of contour/blush, Harusumire, also from Suqqu. A simple, chic spring quad that is part of Suqqu`s permanent collection.
