BB Cream -Unlisted Brand - Elisha Coy - Triple BB Cream

Got this as agift so Price for me was *0* but its was selling here for a much higher price than if I bought it in Singapore. Second BB cream I tried after Etude. Ashy grey out of the tube, thick consistency but good coverage. A little goes a long way. Slightly too light for my skintone but if I use less / mix it with another base product, it tends to work ok. The reason I will repurchase is because although it leaves my skin feeling dry if I use it too may days in a row, I find that after I take this off, my skin feels brighter and fairer!! So for that, I will repurchase.
As with other Laneige products , good for younger skin, with minimal probs. For me, I echo the other 30-35 age range reviewer = TOO DRY.
Nora Joe: I was told to use this daily after cleansing my face. So it basically works as a toner. Found this gimmicky as it's a gel consistency but supposed to act as a toner. Of course it smells great, gotta hand that to them, Laneige products ALWAYS smell good!! However if your cotton balls are coming back grey with using this product, then your cleanser mustn't be working too well IMO!! Finished it up, didn't see any difference, did not repurchase
AH HAH! Seems like I am the first one in the 30-35 age range to post a review :) As a preventive measure, this may be fine, but it didn't deliver for me! And I used this in combination with other products in this range. I am a beauty sucker!! When I am introduced a product, I usually get conned (by the SA or myself) to purchase the entire line!!! Yes, I waste a lot of money at times when I find the products don't work, I tend to stop using everything and find something new :( sigh Well, that happened with this range :( and it wasn't cheap too!
One thing I do not like about Laneige is their muti step procedures! Seems like too many products applied on top on each other. I was recommended this emulsion for whitening. Did not work AT ALL for me. Will not repurchase.
Great smell as always with Laneige products. Does what is says, hydrates, and again (as with my other Laneige reviews) doesn't seem to do much else for me. Recommend to ppl with existing good skin. However I will repurchase as moisturizes for nights when I'm going out and I need a quick moisturizer base before my makeup and I don't wanna apply my whole skin care regime knowing I'm gonna have to wash it off in a couple of hours.
Treatments (Eye) -Laneige - Perfect Renew Dual Touch Eyes

One of their pricier products but if it works, then it is worth it. For me, this is a great eye cream. I like their day cream with SPF. Very light and easily absorbed. Concealer glides on smoothly on top of this. Night cream is also light (perhaps not moisturizing enough for older skin) It basically hydrates but that's about it. I recommend as a preventive product as it didn't do much else for me, no improvement in dark circles/fine lines/wrinkles.
Liked the hydration and softness of skin this mask provided. Loved the smell (how could you not????!!!) However, didn't like the fact that it doesnt absorb fully so it sticks to my pillow at night. And Laneige could find a better way of dispensing the product as using fingers to scoop it out isn't too hygienic. Love that it hydrates as its meant to but doesn't do much else. Would recommend to younger skin with minimal flaws such as fine lines, acne, blemishes, scarring. Overall, I don't use it often but it's good to have in my product range.
Lip Gloss -Biotherm - Glossy Shine Lip Gloss - 120

Agreeing with the reviewer below, you have to have a tissue handy to get rid off the clear gloss first before you can apply the colour. But great smell, not sticky, nice sheer colour :)
It's LE so even if I wanted to, I might not be able to buy it again :( This happened with my Dior creme blush and when that ran out, I couldn't repurchase so I had to look for another. Tried MAC, not bad nice sheer finish but this has slightly more oomph for me Fantastic Smell :) Nice creme to powder finish, gives a subtle flush of colour. I fall so easily for nice packaging and I would've given this 5 stars except for the fact the top seems to catch on funny, I have to put on and take off at least twice each time to get the right fit to screw it back on. But other than that, always loved the gold YSL packaging :)
Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Eye Charm - Double Eyelid Tape
chynnadoll21 2/6/2012 5:59:00 AM
Based on the reviews here, this seems to be more about eyelid tapes in general than Eye Charm brand (is this a brand?) Anyhow, I use eyelid tapes on and off. Great to make hidden double eyelids (like mine) bigger. But a bit tricky for those who have a *fatty* eyelid (like me :( ) You need experimenting to get the right size/design/application to get it to work. But will continue using these whilst I look at other eyelid enhancing methods:)
BB Cream -Etude - Etude House Precious Mineral All Day Strong BB Cream
chynnadoll21 2/6/2012 5:55:00 AM
Came highly recommended, perhaps just doesn't suit me. Colour wasn't a perfect match but I didn't mind that. Finish was semi-natural, didn't feel greasy. Was quite happy overall but with prolonged use, I found it dries my skin so I gave it away. As for this BB, have tried better, haven't tried worse.
Bought this as an *extra* with my avene cleanace trial kit range however with the results I've been having from just cleanance K ad diacneal, I found I didn't really need this. SA recommended I use this 2-3 times a week but I didn't wanna aggravate my skin and overdo the exfoliating so I tried this once a week. Application is easy. Dries fairly quick but I don't like the idea of moisting my fingertips and then gently rubbing off to exfoliate. I feel like if my fingers are too dry, it'll be too harsh, if my fingers are too wet, it won't be as efficient. Perhaps I'm more used to conventional scrubs. However, I wont mind purchasing again just to have an avene scrub lying around EDIT : 18/2/12 Second time using the mask after being on Cleanace K ad Diacneal for about a month and I find it stings and feels prickly/itchy upon application. If you have ultra sensitive skin, I don't think this will suit you. I'm guessing the exfoliation regime I've been on recently has made my skin slightly more sensitive so that's why I feel the stings only now and not when I first used it.
Lucky to get this off for free cos it didn't suit a friend. :) After Etude's BB cream, this was wayyyy better!! Not drying, natural dewy looking, medium coverage. However it made me look a little oily after a few hours and broke me out on my forehead. *I've recently suffered from adult acne so this may be purely hormonal and nothing to do with the product. Will try again once my skin stabilizes* However based on the natural finish it provides, I would recommend this but price is a little steep and I think I can find better bb's for the price so will not be repurchasing
Review for the SPF30 Last step in the morning under makeup. I got so excited by the avene range that I ran out to buy this sunblock. Don't love it. PROS: Packaging is fine. Pump dispenser is convenient to use. Light texture. Easy to apply No white pasty finish as mentioned by other reviewers CONS : Not worth the price for the amount. Oily finish (I don't have oily skin) Cheap sunblock smell Makes my foundation powder ball up and leaves my skin uneven Concealer doesn't go well over it. Will not buy again however in love with the other avene products so far :)
