this eye cream helps my fine lines pretty well but hardly does anything for my dark circles. it doesnt give me any milia so i'm still pretty happy with this eye cream. i do not like that it comes in such a little tub, since i have long nails, the eye cream tends to get stuck under my nails (yuck i know) when i stick my finger into the tub. although i do like the fluffyish light consistency this eye cream has. i dont think i'll buy this eye cream again since i prefer my Origins eye doctor eye cream over this.
i really like the fruity and floral fresh scent that this has and not the 'old/vintage' smelling scent like many other scents out there. the downside to this fragrance is that its too strong and overpowering on the first spray. i probably wouldn't buy this product again because im just not the type who would stick to one fragrance. . i've never actually tried benefits maybe baby, but its kinda odd that there are so many positive comments on that but not for this one since so many people say they smell the same. just a thought.
love this product!. doesnt break me out at all which is always a plus since alot of products break me out. i can even use it at night when i'm sleeping to control the oiliness of my skin. one down side to this products is that it doesnt completely keep my skin looking oil free all day. after a few hours of dusting this 'dust' on my skin, i sometimes feel that i need to reapply. i dont particularly like the smell either. i have the one in lavender.
i'd buy this product to eat maybe, but not for my skin !!!. i tried it a couple of years ago, did absolutely nothing for me... it even made my skin worse!. instead of glowing moisturised skin, i got dried, flaky, blotchy skin. i think it even made my pores seem larger too. eek. the ONLY time honey did something for my skin was when i used it when it was all crystallised (u know how old honey becomes) and used it as a scrub, and washed it away immediately. honey just isnt for me.
Lotions/ Creams -Neostrata - Smoothing Lotion - AHA 10

quite expensive for a drugstore product, but for what it does, it is well worth it. it tingles my skin quite a little, actually alot!, sometimes i just wanna scratch away at my skin (but i dont). it makes my skin super soft to the touch. im not sure if it has made my skin appear any different though. will be back to edit after using this for a longer period of time.
great moisturiser!. it doesn't break me out and moisturizes really well. unless i pile it on like i did once and it gave me a few blemishes. a little goes a long way. broke my little sister out though lol. not my HG because it doesn't brighten my skin or anything. all it does it moisturise really well.
i like this eye cream. helps a little with my dark circles, improved my finelines and doesnt make my eyes puffy like some eye treatments do. it lasts quite awhile too. the only problem i have with this is that it comes in a pot, i hate it when the cream gets stuck under my nails (lol, gross.. i know).
Moisturizers -Origins - A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturizer

this moisturiser doesnt absord this product at all!. it just sits on the surface of my skin and makes me look really oily. if only it worked for me because i like the smell and texture. i only use it when i want to soften any dry flaky skin. and i use it as a massage oil./cream. it kinda helps to get rid of some blackheads if i massage it into my skin, the blackheads kinda just slips out. i also use it as a lip balm now. i wont buy this product again, im only using it as a massage cream and lip balm because it does nothing for my skin and i dont want it just sitting in my cabinet.
Toners -Origins - A Perfect World Moisturizing Lotion with White Tea
ricerice 10/25/2007 12:56:00 PM
theres nothing special about this toner. it's a very gentle toner... too gentle for my liking. it felt like i was swiping scented water over my skin. it didn't leave me with the extra clean feeling. i gave it 2 lippes because it smelt nice, came in a nice bottle and didn't dry out my skin.
Cleansers -Origins - never a dull moment skin brightening facial cleanser
ricerice 10/25/2007 12:51:00 PM
it cleaned my skin well but nothing else. didn't do anything for my acne, didn't brighten my skin. but i liked how it was really foamy. probably a better cleanser for summer than winter, it might be a little too drying for winter months.
this mask didn't do much for me except giving me the effects of a standard mask (cleaned my skin but didn't get rid of any blackheads, whiteheads..etc.). i felt a slight tingling sensation, but instead of getting rid of deep gunk from my skin like i though it did, the tingling sensation was just the drying out of my skin. i wouldn't totally avoid this product in the future, but i just wont spend on this product when there are other better masks out there.
Treatments (Eye) -Shiseido - The Skincare Eye Revitalizer
ricerice 10/25/2007 12:39:00 PM
this product didn't do much for my eye bags, dark circles or fine lines. all it did was prevent it from drying out. nothing else. i wouldn't repurchase since it does nothing but moisturise. oh and it gave me a few of those milia things too.
love the smell, texture and what it does for my skin! it loosens up the head in my pores so that its easier for me to do my extractions. i also use it as a spot treatment on my pimples and it works wonders. better than any other acne treatments out there. it flattens and reduces the redness overnight. it even helps with cystic pimples!!!
Scrubs -Shiseido - Pureness Exfoliating Treatment Gel
ricerice 10/25/2007 12:31:00 PM
not the best exfoliator out there, but it does its job. i find that there aren't enough scrubbing particles in it and some particles can be quite large. i like the gel though, and the smell. lol i just love pureness to much to not like this product.
Treatments -Shiseido - Shiseido Pureness Pore Minimising Cooling Essence
ricerice 10/25/2007 12:26:00 PM
this product feels like it's just filling up my pores with particles to give it a smoother appearance, which isnt really want, i want something that actually minimises my pores not just give the appearance of smaller pores. but since its working for so many people, i might give it another go (i still have a whole tube of it somewhere in my cupboard...what a waste of money).
