Foundations -Clinique - Derma White Fluid-Cream Makeup SPF 15/PA++

This is a great foundation. Foundations in a jar are great for dry skin, and this is very good for me! It gives you a very dewy, yet not oily look (but probably oily if your already oily!) This is NOT for oily skin, so do not buy it if you have oily skin. I think the Derma White line is specifically made for Asians, so the colors match perfectly on any yellow-based skin tone. The only negative about this is that it has SPF in it and makes you look like you have a white mask on when taking flash pictures. I can’t say it did anything to me for whitening, but the foundation doesn’t get darker later in the day like many foundations do.
The smell is SOO GOOD. Very moisturizing. I love it, but I can't say that about the price. Pretty expensive considering I'm tall and have extremely long legs (so i use a lot of lotion haha)
The smell is lovely, and I do feel super clean afterwards, but I find this soap to be a little drying

Normally, I never wear powder because my skin is SO dry. But sometimes, you just need to powder certain places after a few hours. This is my first powder purchase, but I have used several samples from upscale brands. I have got to say this is very finely milled and great quality. I think this would be a good powder for ANY skin type. The coverage is light, so I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone seeking more of a full coverage look. I think the purpose of this is just for oil control and for makeup setting.

I 've used about 4 bottles of this stuff, and I do like it. It comes out of the botle like water, and it doesn't seem like it moisturizes your hair when you put it on, but then when you wash it off, your hair is sooo soft! My hair has been thru hell (color fix, bleach, dyed it twice in one week, dye it every 2 months...) that i think i will buy something thicker (the shea butter conditioner by loccitane)

LOVE LOVE LOVE it! great for dry skin. MY HG shampoo. I feel it doesn't really lather well, but it has not SFL (or w/e that chemical is called) so that's probably why. After I use this my hair is sooo soft and conditioned! LOVE IT!
This junk dries the hell out of my process hair. The oleo bain shampoo is much better for dry dyed hair. The smell reminds me of sweet tarts..
Expensive but worth it if your hair is dry as hay. It's expensive, but it lasts a long time and a little bit goes a long way. I bought one last year, and i'm almost done with it. I use it once a week and leave it in for 20 minutes. Non frizzy hair after it dries. LOVE IT!
I'm not sure what's up with the pic, but I used the treatment, and I LOVE IT. NO silicone in it which doesnt weight down your hair and make it look gross. It really does repair your hair, and makes it dry faster which is a plus sincemy thick asian hair takes forever to air dry. Recommend for dark medium hair. I'm not too sure how this would work on fine blond hair, but they do have a formula for blondes!
MEh.... Too thick for me, good medium to full coverage, but the range of colors is bad (2 I think?), it's a little light for me.

The 21 is too light for me and the 23 is too dark, so I bought both and i mix them together with a little bit more 21 than 23. The 23 is more yellowish, and the 21 is more beige but it just works well for my yellow Asian skin tone mixing them. Light to medium coverage, use only a little bit or youll look really made,up, good for day time use, bad for night time use, good for dry skin. My skin's pretty nice, so this is good for me. Wouldn't recommend to anyone with very oily skin or wants more coverage The packaging sucks tho. It's pretty, but the pump MUST be upside down for it to come out smoothly. So keep it on your shelf with the lid on, but im very disorganized, so it takes FOREVER for it to come out haha

I always get samples of this, and i used all the samples for a month to see if it works (the skin's turnover rate is 28 days, so you won't know after that time to know if something is working for you or not.) The first time I used it, I only put a little bit on (a pea size_. One day, I put a lot on (i only use it at night), and the next day my skin was GLOWING, so maybe i need to use a lot of this product to make it work. i will buy again after my genifique serum!
I bought this, and I'm not sure what the big deal about this is. It's a bit overpriced for what it does. I'd rather just buy Rosebud Slave, as its cheaper and does a better job moisturizing. My lips peel all the time, and i feel like this aggravated the peeling.
This is cheap in America, but expensive in Korea where I live... I would say this is great for dry skin! It made all my flakes go away. I don't think I will use this in the summer time though, as it gets really humid here. P.S. The burning means your skin is dry, and this skin is working! It burns for me sometimes too, especially when i find that I scrubbed to hard in some places.
This is my second bottle i'm using. The first time I used it, i thought it was good, but maybe it's not working out for me anymore. Will not buy again, but worth a shot if you have the extra cash to blow.
