Relieves the skin from daytime stress and activates skin reproduction during sleep. Wraps the skin in a smooth moisture veil to keep skin lightly smooth and resilient.
Apply over entire face every day as night skin care. After applying lotion, pour suitable quantity on palm and apply in small portions with fingertips.
Free of preservatives, sterilizers, petroleum-based surfactants, fragrances, and mineral oils. Weakly acidic.
I use this after the Moisture Lotion and before the Cream for Night. Before, I used just the CfN, but found that it didn't absorb very well. So I tried using the EfN first, which absorbed quite instantly and gave my skin a semi-matt finish, and then applied the CfN after. This made it so much easier for my skin to hold and absorb the cream. Now I just stick to this order and my skin is so supple and hydrated.
For combination to oily skin. Regulates oily skin's moisture-oil balance to leave it fresh and smooth on the surface. "Amacha" (Hydrangea macrophilla var. thunbergii) extract adapted to skin type supplies necessary moisture to the skin while controlling sebum, improving the balance between oiliness and dryness.
Active Ingredients: alanyl glutamine, ivy extract, plant SOD (parsley extract, hydrangea serrata leaf extract, rice bran oil).
I use this as part of my daytime regimen. It helps control my t-zone sebum. I used to use the Moisture Lotion instead, but switched to this because of my t-zone. It sinks right now (also water-like liquid) and I can tell just by the feel that it must contain less oil.
For dry to normal skin. Macromolecular hyaluronic acid adapted to skin type maintains moisture supply and retention capability of the skin, keeping skin smooth and soft.Allows moisture to permeate through skin prone to dryness, and increase its moisture retaining capacity. Leaves skin soft, smooth and resilient.
Active Ingredients: alanyl glutamine, Ivy etract, plant SOD (parsley extract, hyaluronic acid, rice bran oil)
I use this as part of my nighttime regimen, after having cleansed my face with the Washing Powder. It's very moisturizing and leaves no oily sheen. This lotion just sinks right in (which is not curious since it's a clear, water-like liquid). I don't think I could just use this alone without follow-up with another cream/lotion, though. It won't be enough for my combo skin.

Strangely, this smells like the original Shalimar to me. I don't own a bottle of the original one, but I've used it in the past and I always stop by the Guerlain counter for a test spritz of Shalimar. I'd hoped that this version would be a lot lighter with citrusy notes. Oh well. I still adore it, though.

KC Black is a very very sexy floral. It even turned my own head sometimes (when I sniffed it, not remembering that I wore it that day). My only peeve is that the staying power if awful, hence only 4 lippies.
Not bad. Too expensive, though. This won't remove all makeup with one sheet. But it was great if you only need to remove dirt and sweat (at the end of the day, when you don't wear makeup).
Nice cleansing oil that leaves no oily residue after washing. I was actually amazed when I first used this. The oil washed right off. It's also gentle enough to use for eye makeup removal. I've tried other brands that stung my eyes. This one may make your eyes a little blurry around the edges, but there's nothing a washing powder follow-up won't cure. Great stuff! =) ETA: I have to give this product another lippie (making it a perfect 5!) simply because it's the best I've used so far. I've tried many other oil cleansers, yet this one remains on the top. It's unbelievably gentle to my eyes and the consistency is great. Other brands are just too runny.

A true rose scent for me. I've searched high and low for this exact rose scent. And I've found it! It's perfect, but it could use a better lasting power, though.
Beautiful and sophisticated, this honeysuckle-based fragrance really does turn heads! I've got so many compliments wearing it. It's not 1-dimentional and lasts all day.
So far (for me), the best fragrance for men. I fell in love with this after first sniff. I loved it so much I went and bought myself a bottle. I don't use it myself, though. I just had to own a bottle! This fragrance, on the right man, will turn him to GOD. =)

When I first spritzed this, I thought, "Hmm...rosey." Nope, this fragrance has no rose note in it. It only has a mixture of cherry, honey, and almond, which, to my nose, creates the illusion of roses. Sweet and seductive, I always get compliments when I wear this.
This is a very lovely vanilla. I'm a foody-scents person, although I'm very very picky about them. This vanilla may be 1-dimentional, but it's soft and sweet (but not gaggingly so). It's also quite cheap, which is a big plus.
New formulation - foams easily, there's really no need to use a washing puff or ball (unless you like to). I believe the most important step in skincare is the cleansing part. This washing powder leaves my face feeling clean and fresh, not drying at all. I will always repurchase!
When I first tried this I thought, "Bleh!" Watered-down woods, without much depth. And now, after almost 6 months stashed away in the deepest section of my stash trunk, I finally dug it out for a second sniff. And I love it! Funny how it didn't appeal to me before. Now, I smell non-descript (in a good way) mixture of tame florals, woods, and soft musk. It's truly beautiful. Warm and even subtly erotic.
I'm not sure what others smell in this fragrance. To me, it's a heady mixture of powder and floral. It's neither warm nor sweet. After reading the prior great reviews here I had to visit YR and try it out for myself. It was quite a disappointment.
