i used this on and off before going to bed every night. it does make my face less oily when i get up in the mornings compared to days where i did not use this. but other than that, i dont know the actual use of this as it did not help to stop my acne/pimple problem. will not repurchase as i think it has no effect..

i seriously wondered if this is for real after what the sales assistants explained the use of this. i had a sample kit and it did absolutely nothing. a good thing i did not succumb and buy the large bottle outright!
this did nothing for me. i think there are better toners out there that is probably more suitable for my skin (which can be quite weird sometimes!). it is supposed to be good for preventing pimples/acne, but sadly , it didnt live up to the hype for me.
this was flat out drying for me. and i really didnt like the way its a bar soap. i ran out of this thrice as quickly as i would a liquid/cream facial cleanser. smell was medicinal but once u got used to it, its ok.
this is quite good! it removes blackheads/whiteheads and also tiny stray hairs (upper lip, chin areas and your eyebrows if you accidentally put some mask over them!)! it made my face look brighter overall. good stuff!

i quite like this toner - it stung abit, at first, but after a few uses, my skin really loved this! it was hydrating and the smell was pretty nice once you got used to it.

this non foamy cleanser took some getting used to, but it is really gentle! left an oily flim on my skin though.
this is pretty good stuff here! its lightweight yet does a good job of moisturizing. my skin is smooth and also the scars are less obvious after 1-2 weeks of continous usage. good enough for morning or night use. thumbs up for me!
this is way too sticky for my liking. the smell isnt all that great either.

nothing great other than the smell. a regular scrub will probably do the job just as well.
Treatments (Eye) -Origins - A Perfect World for Eyes

this is strange...seems like there is no HG eye gel for me..most of the ones i've tried are only OK, nothing fab. this was my 1st eye gel that i ever started out with and it seemed to maintain my eye area ok. still in between minds about repurchasing this but may come back to this if i cannot find something that actually works - i like the philosophy behind Origins' products.
i'm unsure whether this really has any effect...sometimes i feel it does help diminish dark eye rings...but my eyes are naturally puffy, so no help there...i normally use this as a daily treatment where i pat on a very small amount before putting on my eye gel. other days i slap on a generous amount as an under eye mask. probably will purchase again as i dont have a regular eye mask that i'm comfy with right now.
this is waaaay to oily for my eye area! had oil seeds within a week after using this. a definite no no for me. maybe when my skin gets drier - recommend more for dry skin imo.
not sure if i'd get this again but the colours in the tube and the flavours are pretty nice. just that's it's a tad expensive.
this is an ok blush in terms of staying power and its pigmentation. however the colour is probably not very suitable for me as it turned out too orangey on my skin! maybe i should stop taking the SAs advices as things turn out wrong most of the time.... i very much prefer petticoat from MAC but too bad it is limited edition only!
