Moisturizers -Kose - Cosme Decorte Moisture Liposome Cream

I experienced the same thing as one of the user. It is very sticky and it doesn't seem to absorb into the skin. After using for several nights, I do not find my skin particularly hydrated but somewhat dry. Also,I do not expect this as this cream is expensive. Will not purchase again then.
Cleansers -Kose - Cosme Decorte AQ Gentle Washing Foam

This is so far the washing foam that I love!!! It foams nicely and cleanses well although my cotton pat is still very brownish after using my toner. But I just love the gentle foaming lather. It's very very expensive. S$168 for 200ml.

I have tried this but it doesn't leave my skin glowing or very hydrated. On hot days, I used it alone and after many days, find my skin rather dry. Don't really know why as most posts have very good reviews about this. Maybe will not buy it again as it is sooooo expensive.
Skin soothing cream is richer than active moist but I loved the texture! It absorbs straightaway, leaving a matt surface. Active moist, as I experienced, leaves the whole face shiny. Soothing cream helps to soothe the skin but I am worried whether is it the culprit which clogged my skin.
I don't think it cleanses my oily face well. Although sometimes I even cleanse it twice with this. It leaves a waxy feel. The special cleansing gel is much more effective in its cleansing power.
I have read many reviews about this not oily and watery. SA told me so as well. However, I have very oily face and upon applying this cream, yes, the texture is very light, but it just leaves a shiny sheen on my face. After putting on sunblock, my face looked like I have been in the day for 6 hours. Oily and sticky. The hydration effect is so-so only too. Update: I still agree that this moisturizer is not hydrating enough esp for oily and dehydrated skin but it helps to refine the skin? You must apply some hydrating serum before this to help with the hydration factor. I use the hydrating booster which I love before this.
This light cream can hydrate well and i dont use a lot, only a pea size will do for my oily skin. I use it together with the soothing serum.
I just ordered this gel and used it with my moisturizer but it made my skin dry after using for a few days. Why? Anyone has the same experience?

I would have to thank MUA otherwise I would not notice this product. Texture is light and after applying, leaves a slight shiny tint on my oily face. But I love this product as it brightens up and even the skin tone! Great!
Moisturizers -Origins - Make A Difference Skin Rejuvenating Treatment
twinky13 11/30/2005 2:28:00 AM
Origin's Make a Difference Rejevernating Treatment is a very light gel texture. It doesn't leave my oily skin sticky. Loved it! Comes in a tub form, very inconvenient to scoop the gel out UPDATED: Oh no, pls be warned!!! Although I simply loved the texture but I think it caused breakouts. I find that the waxy waxy texture kinda clog the area rather than absorbing into the skin. I think it has silicones coating the skin, so oilies pls beware!! For dry to normal skin, should be okay as there are still raves about this. I have stopped using it since.
Moisturizers -Clarins - Multi Active Day Cream Gel

After reading these reviews, I went to get a sample of this. Been looking for gel moisturizer that DOES not leave my face sticky. Finally this is the only one I have tried, besides aloe vera gel, that sinks in my oily face. However, there is this fainit fragrance that I do not like. Very perfumed scent which I am afraid might not be suitable for sensitive skin. Agreed with some why do Clarins add this kind of fragrance although it is using plant extracts. I don't mind if the scent smell like herbs or plants, but not PERFUME. Other than that, the pump dispenser is good. UPDATED: Again love the texture, but too bad, it is toooo perfumed-smelling for my liking. And that probably used the red patches on my cheeks. So sensitive skin, stay away!!!

Very average. Did not do anything for my dried hands.

As for me, I liked the smell and find it very soothing. You really need to warm it up or rub harder between your palms to break down the cream! It will turn to a colourless-like thick serum and just pat it on the face. Great! Update: I have been using this creme every night for slightly more than 2 months. Used the correct application, demo to the SA and she claimed correct. However, after this while, do not notice any improvements to my face at all. In fact, it doesn't seem to absorb at all (thou I just pat on my face) and leaves it very sticky. I wake up with very sticky and greasy face! It also gives more blackheads and clog up my face. Gave back the cream. Think it may not work for my oily skin at all. Also, the red patches do not heal at all. Pimples do not get healed as well too as claimed by SA.

Disappointing. Did not minimize fine lines. It does a moderate job of moisturizing. And I find sometimes it gave me milla seeds.
The SA said must warm it before the fingers before applying. I skipped this step before coz all the lotion seemed to absorb onto the palm before applying. Do try it and SA claims the effect will defintely be different. Like the texture and improved overall texture.
