Treatments (Eye) -Pevonia Botanica - EVOLUTIVE EYE GEL

Because this is vitamin C, I kept it away from sunlight. Although the container is densely sun-protective. I kept it in my fridge so it was cool upon application. It isn't a cream, so it's not hydrating. I'm not sure if I saw any changes.. it didn't make my eyes worse. I did not observe any puffiness or dark circles. It doesn't help with wrinkles.
One of the best products I discovered in Sabon. Love the lychee loofah soap. Great for traveling. Love the smell. My family enjoyed this on our trip. It's a loofah and soap in one! What's not to love? Doesn't leave a film on the skin.
Organic Butter cream -- different smell, great that it's composed of organic substances. Moisturizing cream 3/5. Once I completed the cream, I used the jar for decoration in my home.
I bought this product on sale, directly from the website. This is a review for the organic body scrub -- which has a different scent. I like how it's made of mostly organic products, but it takes some adjustment. This isn't the most exfoliating scrub I've tried. Oil can leak from the sides of the bottle. I don't travel with the jar. However, I can see myself using the jar in the home for decorative purposes.
Conditioner -L'Occitane - Apres-Shampooing Conditioner 5 Essential Oils

The snap top on the bottle broke off quickly after a few months. I bought this conditioner on sale. Unfortunately the essential oil is too heavy for my porous asian hair. It didn't make my hair shine; rather, it weighed it down. When I went to my stylist, she complained that my hair was too greasy. Moving on to another product..

Lip Gloss -The Body Shop - born lippy - strawberry

I like the color of this balm; it's my lips but better. It is drying, but I use a natural chapstick over it to seal in moisture. I've worn this to formal events before and it is long-lasting when paired with a good moisturizer.
I bought this full size along with Hy-Oil for $44 on skinwest.com. I highly recommend this website because they sent me a free full size gift and have coupons frequently. I use two pumps of the Hy-Oil on dry skin, followed by 1 pump of the Combination formula. Both have left my face clean with no acne, and less oil on my T-zone. This is my new HG cleanser, will continue to repurchase.

This is the best salt scrub I've used. I apply as directed: on dry skin, then wash in the shower. The consistency reminds me of butter. When it is rinsed, it doesn't leave a film, and there is no remains of salt. It doesn't feel rough at all. It moisturizes my dry skin very well. HG status.

Non-greasy, moisturizing, lovely scent. I received this as a sample with my Sephora order.
Hair Styling Tools -Babyliss - Pro Nano Titanium Straightening Iron

I bought this on Amazon (Beauty Center Online) for $87, the 1.25 inch for hair 3 inches longer than shoulder length. This is the first straightening iron I have owned, and it is worth the price. I use it only on weekends. Although I have straight hair, it leaves my hair more shiny and styled, so that every strand is in its place. I look more put together for any professional or leisure event.
I bought this for about $25 and only use it a few times a month. It will last me at least 1.5 years. I love how it does not weigh my hair down, leaves a lovely shine, and a nice fresh scent in its wake. My hair is also softer after using, which I have not experienced with a hair product before.
I use this for my cake mascara and cake eyeliner. It's perfect to get the right amount of liquid for application.
Lotions/ Creams -Vaseline - Intensive Rescue Heal and Repair balm

Absolutely wonderful for dry skin. I wasn't able to find this in CVS, Walgreens, or Rite Aid, and had to purchase from drugstore.com in bulk. This is a must for winter weather. I wish it was in a plastic tube to squeeze instead of a pump. I want to get the rest of the product when the pump no longer functions!
