I bought this in line with other Intra products, the soothing gel. It is a gentle milk cleanser with rather strong vanilla smell. However, it doesn't soothe my skin after I cleanse. I have very sensitive with redness and what I find is just some mild cleansing properties.
Moisturizers -The Body Shop - Aloe Vera Moisturizing Day Cream
twinky13 8/20/2006 8:55:00 AM
This is one of the new range that Body Shop has produced. From cleanser, toner to moisturizer using aloe vera range. I had some breakouts from using certain skincare products and skin is red and sore! I bought this day cream and find that it doesn't abosrb my skin instantly and I had to massage it longer for it to absorb. Have to use this long to update the effect. Read that the night cream in MUA contains mineral oil. Is that true? That sounds really distrubing for my ultra-sensitive and super oily skin.
I was given a sample of this serum-moisturizer that uses Picowater that penetrates the moisture and nutrients into your skin. Not bad,has adequate hydrating effect. This brand is under the Sony International, the one that produces TV and electronic stuff. Anyone has tried any of their range before?
Wow! The great reviews really bowled me over. But ladies, sorry to break the trend. Guess oil cleansers just don't work on me. Fancl cleansing oil gave me bumps. I have oily and sensitive skin.
I have read so many raves about the Green Tea moisturizer and tried it. Liked it a lot and wanted to try more about the range. Anyone using this? Bought the serum. It is very watery, comes in a clear liquid and absorbs well! Has a certain scent, not the sweet type but rather herbal. Update: Guez this serum is too strong for my thin, sensitive skin. It causes redness and stings a little. It caused some bumps too.
It feels very creamy and contains shea butter. Guess it is not suitable for my oily and sensitive skin. Makes my whiteheads worse.
Moisturizers -Darphin - Hydraskin Intensive Moisturizing Serum

I should read more in detail before I bought this. I also find this not hydrating enough. But the texture is very easy to apply as it sinks in immediately.
I bought this moisturizer after reading all the good reveiws. This gel-lotion absorbs instantly which is a joy to apply. However,after using for a few days, find that it does nothing much yet. My skin is sensitive, reddish at cheeks with couple of whiteheads. My skin seems to look angrier after using this. Shall update again to see how it works.
Treatments -Biotherm - D-STRESS NUIT relaxing night care

I bought this after reading all the raves here but alas! It did nothing for my skin. Maybe my skin is very picky, I tried most Biotherm-Source therapie, Hydra Detox and I don't see results. But the texture is great and has nice smell...
Bought the sensitive emulsion and this essence. Both textures are VERY watery. Thinking it will absorb very well but no. It takes some time to absorb and leaves a shiny look. After using for some time, do not see much effect. Essence and moisturizer tends to stay on the skin rather than penetrate into it. Definitely not buying this again.
It does nothing to my skin as most of the biotherm products that I have bought for the combination range- Hydra Detox range. I have finished 3/4 of the bottle and still I do not see any results.
I would love for this to work, much as many Sisley expensive stuff that I bought. But it does not have any effect on me. Do not see any cleansing effect much and the radience effect.
I have stopped buying Sisley stuff because it doesn't work very well on me. I find them to be very normal too. Especially this flower gel, I do not find any hydrating effect with this.
This is very expensive and worked pretty well. SA advised to use it for one month first and then 10 days the next month. I find it to be quite moisturizing but will not buy it again because it is sooo expensive.
After all the raves from SA and other forum reviews, this cream do not do anything to my skin. Disappointed and expensive too!
