I've only tried the night gelly from this line and it leaves me wanting for more. It's a light gell texture to be gently massaged into the skin as a final step to your night time regime. I usually apply it as a sleeping mask (similar to Laneige water sleeping pack). Once the gel is absorbed, I feel the tightening and firming sensation on my face. Next morning I do find that it has brightened my overall complexion. This product as not broken me out, I've used this for about 3 weeks. In between I stopped to trial test the raw jobs tears night gelly (which smells & feels amazing, but this produces more result for me) The only downside is, upon drying, I feel like it leaves a film on the surface. Skin does not feel soft n smooth tothe touch but I think the film contributes to the firming effect. Also I really dislike the scent of this!! Smells like posh toilet kinda smell. Tangy, citrusy but not in a pleasant way. However, I will gladly use for the results. And will look into other products from this line.

It's a liquid-gel toner which leaves skin feeling hydrated and supple. Great for my dehydrated skin which most toners tend to leave feeling tight. Pleasant feeling, no sticky residue. The only thing is the rose fragrance which I'm not partial to. If it just smelled different I would love it! I shake the bottle so the product drips onto my hand and I use both palms to pat it into my skin till its absorbed. I wish it had a pump because it's just a tad tiresome to get the product out.
If u r from Malaysia n u r old, u will know Hazeline Snow. This cleanser brought back memories as it is reminiscent of the scent of Hazeline snow. It's looks like it coming out of the tube too. I found the fragrance overwhelmingly strong, and it doesn't foam up as much as u would expect a "foaming wash" to. However, I personally quite like that it doesn't foam much. It rinses leaving my skin feeling supple n hydrated and not taut after. I would recommend for dry/dehydrated skin if you can stand the strong rise scent of course! For now, this'll do as it doesn't aggravate/ cause breakouts

I purchased all 3 cleansers, this one, the oil out tea tree an the rose one. This would be my least favorite but it's not bad. Feels like a generic cleanser, smells like one too (not a bad smell tho, just generic) I'm picky with cleansers that leave me feeling taut and this is one of them. I have combo dehydrated skin prone to breakouts so for me, I prefer the other 2. No regrets tho, it's cheap to experiment with this brand and my younger sister with ollier skin seems to like it.
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - NARUKO - Niaouli & Tea Tree Acne Clay Cleanser
chynnadoll21 3/30/2012 12:48:00 PM
U would think a clay cleanser would be more gritty! But no, it's creamy and comfortable texture-wise even for dry/ dehydrated skin. It doesn't lather much but goes on gently and rinses without stripping. I like it more as a mask because it acts like a clay mask but feels like a hydrating mask. Skin is brighter, smoother, and overall feels clean. Not sure how it's helped with breakouts as of now. Only gripe I have is the addition of menthol. I heard the old formula didn't have this. I feel that while the cooling effect is refreshing, as a mask it felt really really cool and unnessecary in my opinion. Will repurchase because it's one of the better clay masks I've tried.

Nice nozzle, smells pleasant, but didn't work on whiteheads, pustules, papules. Basically didn't see any effect over a week. However it doesn't irritate my skin or cause more breakouts.
I can see why this product gets so much love. It's fits great, smells like apple juice, and feels very comfortable on. No drips down the neck but no excess serum in the packet. Price is extremely cheap but the most important thing is, we're there any results? Does it live up to the YT guru raves?? My opinion, yes! I just bought a magnifying mirror today do I doubled check to be sure. My pores on my nose and inner cheeks appear to be more refined and less noticeable (I dont have prob with pores to begin with) Skin is left semi hydrated but all that is not important as it actually does what it claims to do, tighten pores and tone. Very happy with it and needless to say will repurchase in a heartbeat!
Scrubs -TheFACEShop - Peeling Day- Water in Pomegranate
chynnadoll21 3/26/2012 4:50:00 AM
Concept Convenient and easy 1-step scrub with tiny exfoliants to help you discover a newer and clearer skin. It is recommended to women or men in any ages who are looking to practice regular exfoliation as a weekly skin care routine Description Formulated with jewel complex (Tourmaline, Amethyst, Pearl Extract), this exfoliator works like a at-home Crytal peeling which is a very popular peeling treatment done by a dermatologist. Tiny granules are mild on the skin but shows a great brightening I tested this in the TFS store and since the White Jewel caused a reaction on my hand, and this one didn't, I bought this. So if you are sensitive, you might prefer this one. Based on the description, it should be noted that perhaps the little balls which form as you massage this product on your face, are not in fact dead skin but more the product which manifest upon friction. And that is what functions as a mild exfoliator. So for those who are looking for a peeling product where visible actual "dead skin cells" are coming off, then I would say this is not it. However, from using this product for the past 2 weeks, I would say I find it relatively satisfactory. It feels gentle, has a nice scent, and my skin feels semi-smooth, with a squeaky clean but not over stripping sensation after I rinse. It feels hydrating and fresh. I did not notice any "great brightening" as described, but it feels gentle to use more than once a week for sure. I will try it on my arms because I have hyperpigmentation due to KP. Let's see if that works.
Concept Powerful and fast cleansing oil with quick emulsification cleanses make-up & impurities within the pores Description A brightening cleansing oil that brightens up dull skin A light texture that doesn’t feel too oily Prune extracts that prevents melanin gives strong whitening effects Grape seed oil prevents aging and fills skin with moisture How to use: Pump an appropriate amount and massage into face. Make sure that it mixes well with makeup and cleanse. Wash off with lukewarm water or use cleansing foam depending on the skin type. ------ This removes Bb cream well and makeup well. 1/2 pumps is enough to clean my face however, I do tend to use a separate mu remover for waterproof mascara. I find that bits do in fact come off my skin, it looks as though they're dead skin/ sebum/ clogs/ silicones from the Bb cream? Im not sure what all of those tiny grainy bits are, but I'm noticing my blackheads (on my nose) are getting softer and easier to extract after I use this. I follow up with a regular cleanser after this and I find my skin feels soft and not taut (which is usually the case after cleansing). I got the one brightening one and overall, it does give a brighter effect (coupled of course with other products. Just depending on this alone will not achieve any major brightening) Will look into trying other oils in this line and other oils in general
I did not feel / see any visible effects that would warrant a second purchase
Price is reasonable for the amount of applications that you get, however, if the product doesn't work, then even 1 cent is a waste of money.
I received a sample of this when my purchase and I have to say, I am extremely tempted to purchase the full size! I read online the sample was good enough for 2-3 uses, but I slapped on the whole packet for one mask treatment. Left it on for 20mins, then rinsed off. No significant bad scent, it was a rich consistency. Skin felt smooth, I wouldn't say glowing or anything dramatic but the weirdest thing was, after rinsing off the mask, I followed up with toner and was amazed at how fast my toner absorbed into the skin! I felt like, this mask really prepped my skin well for the following skincare steps. Caviar is rich in omega oils, tho I'm not sure about the "gold" but the omega is enough to hook me!
The packaging is a cute jar with a spatula. Formula is a thick consistency gel leave on mask with ginseng bits which act as a mild exfoliant. The herbal ginseng scent is very strong which I don't really mind. Apply it and massage on the face and leave on for 5 mins then rinse off. I've used this 3 times and as a mask, I find that it does leave me skin feeling softer and more supple due to the exfoliation action. Its supposed to rejuvenate the skin and this is not an immediate result, however, I do notice a slight healthy glow if I use this in the morning before my skincare/makeup vs if I use it at night.

I would say the mask function has to be used repeatedly to see results and since I use various different masks I can't tell which is actually producing the desired effect. But this definitely hydrates well and leaves skin supple. I like the mild scent. Very soothing
Masks -My Beauty Diary - Bulgarian White Rose mask
chynnadoll21 3/24/2012 9:25:00 AM
The rose scent is pretty strong so for those who love roses this would be well received. Not as much essence as the aloe one but remains moist for a long time. 30 mins on and I had enough to rub all over my arms and legs. Hydrating effects but whitening is minimal. However I don't expect incredible results with these masks so it was satisfying for the price. Nice quality masks with a good adherence to skin fit. Slightly too narrow for the cheeks. But good hold.
