My skin is now da clearest it has been for yrs because of this product!!! I had acne since i was 14…and i have tried tons of stuffs and i have also tried a numbe of similar prescribed products which cost way more than this which i wasnt able to follow through for a long period of time to see result mostly because of too much irretations and didnt use it properly. After using it for less than a month, 90% of bumps on my face r gone. But i must emphasize its very important to use this with a simple and gentle skin care regime. I completely stopped doing any kind of mask and scrubbing during da cours of this product. If u have sensitive skin, i suggest to put this product on after a light moisturizer instead of before. Not just that it clearing out my skin but da dark spots that were left behind from a serious outbreak months ago are really fadingg!!!! Althought i still have pimples due to hormonal problems but wat this did for me is amazing enough for 5 lippies. My skin litterally look and feel better every morning…thx avene UPDATE: Just like most acne treatment, my skin started to develop sensitivity over it and my skin becomes very dry and itchy with it so i had to stop.......
I duno what took me so long to finally try this foundation after i spent so much money trying a ton that don't work. I am acne prone, combination skin type with alot of current and past dark marks which i have try to cover with numerous foundation. The ones with good coverage tends to settle alot at dry scappy spots while others with lighter coverage that i had to spend long long time putting concealer on every single spots. And finally this foundation is workingggggg!!!!! I still have to use concealer but not nearly as much as before. The only thing is that i'm between colors so i had to buy two different colors (tawny and shell beige) and i'm an NC30. And another problem i have with it is that it's so matte that it looks very thick and shows every bumps on my face. But it's so hard for me to find a foundation that can blend so well on my face and do not bother my skin so i try to work with it to acquire the kind of finish i'm hoping for. At last i mix it with two drops of a liquid luminizer and the outcome is beautifulllll!!!!!!!!!! UPDATE: took two lippes out because it's quite drying as weather becomes colder.....and also not a fan of the flat matte finish......so everyday i had to mix it with luminizer and serum to make it work which is a hassle and expensive.......moved on to Nar's sheer glow...
I've only used it for one day and i returned it because it makes my face much more oilier than usual. It touched up liked 5 times in the morning coz my face is just so shinnny and it's the kind of greasiness that i can feel. Besides that i still think it's a great powder foundation, has broad spectrum spf 12 which is one of the reason why i wanted to try it. Powder extremely fine milled, beautiful finish but did i mentioned that the powder costs 65 cdn plus tax here in canada...!!?? Althought it didn't work for me but i would still recommend this product for othersss........
Loose Powders -Christian Dior - Poudre Libre (Loose Powder)

It's supposed to be hydrating but i find this powder extremely drying on my skin. Also it's way more matte than luminous...so really didn't work out for me.....
Beautiful pink color!! It looks so intense in da pan but when da hot rasberry pink mixed into da gold color it comes off as a neutral pink on my nc30 skin. I have been using dainty for da longest time but its very light so i had to put alot for da color to show while with this new one i just need to stamp couple of times to my cheeks with a fluffy brush and i get almost da same color. I love it so much da i bought two since its limited!
This is for the damaged hair (white) line. I have regular hair but i m a daily straightener user so hair got really dry by it until i start to use this conditioner and been using it ever since.....I can't even recommend this product enough for the huge difference my hair is with and without it. It made my hair 20 times softer and shinnier, nuting else even come close to this productt!!!!!!!!!!!! I"m a beauty junky...but for hair conditioner i dun think i will ever bother to switch as long as they still make it....!!!
First of all there is nothing sheer about this powder.....i bought it to use as a touch up powder throughout the hot summer day to add some coverage and sun protection to my face. However, this is more liked a powder foundation which is very thick and dead matte which is not what i was looking for. And the matifying effect is not that great compare to others i have had which is less expensive. The sponge that comes with the compact really is not a good applicator for powder foundation and when used for touch up it cakes with the oil on your face...but with the special foundation brush that shiseido has gives much better outcome...and the worst thing is that it's extremely drying on skin, it gives my face an instant effect of tightness which i can't stand.....so another fail product for me.......
This powder broke me out really baddd.....i even started to have bumps around my eyes areas which i never experienced from other product.....

This thing brings my face back to life!!! After going off diane 35 my break outs have revisited me for da past three four months so i had to put up with it and try my best to cover them so i dun feel so sh** about it…but then all these oil free make up on my face makes my face looks super flat and therefore all da bumps look so more obvious…i started to look for an luminator and i came across most that r super glittery and then there is this one das subtle and yellow toned (chamaign). Two drops of this with my double wear i look so so so much better today! I have da same amount of stuffs i had on my face yesterday but it looks so much more naturally and lively!!! Will update if i start to have ant problem with it…
Cleansers -Vichy - Purete Thermale Demaquillant Integral One Step Cleanser 3in1

I've only tried this once but i have a problem using it. When i first massage it on my face it feels so good and soothing, but then the problem started when i had to get rid of the stuffs. I tried to wipe it off but this thing is liked glue on my face, and then i tried to wash to off with cetaphil, still wouldn't come completely off. At the end i used cleansing oil to wash it away but i can still feel it on my face. My face is very sensitive so i really don't want to wash it a forth time. The next morning i woke up with multiple clogged pores on my face. I think i will make sure the cleanser can be rinsed off next time when i purchase any other ones.
Really do not understand why this product has such a high ratinggg....I've used it many times during different course of my life hoping i can see the miracle, but it just simply not for me. It only works well if i put alot and alot of liquid stuffs on it so that it will stay the way it is which means i need to use a lot of extra in order to use this....I tried it as eye makeup remover pad, toner pad, nails polish removal pads....all leaves traces of cottons over everywhere....The spider web liked shreds get in between my lashes, my cuticles and my faceeee....!! it's just makes me so maddddd for the price it issssss......!! I' m done with this and will never try againn... UPdate: i didn't used it probably now i can't live without it!!!!
Lip Treatments -Fresh - Sugar Passion Tinted Lip Treatment
Xxkonixx 6/4/2012 12:04:00 AM
This is the first lip treatment i got from fresh out of impulse buying- i mean who will spend almost 30 dollars cd on a tinted lip balm. But let me tell you this thing is worth every single penny, this shows up as a nice stain liked pinkish red on my lips which brightens my whole complexion while i can also apply it sparely to add a tint of color to my lips. And nuting else moisturize my lips like this lip balm, my lips feel supple for hrs everytime after i applied it and they are very picky. And i actually really like the lemony taste of this balm, it's a very delightful scent to me. i'M definately looking forward to getting my hands on their other colors.
No matter what else i try i will always have a bottle of this in my washroom. For years, this is my goto shampoo all year long that won't bother my sensitive scalp and love the way this smells. The best thing is this always go on sale and i'm able to buy a regular size bottle for 2.99 cd. The only bad thing about this is my hair is just a little big flat when i use it.
Great concealer....covers my dark circles perfectly!! However, i really can't stand the packaging of this product. The stupid silicon tip does not hold extra concealer that you will accidently roll out and certainly cannot be used as a applier. And the price is rediculesly expensive, almost 40 cd for 0.05 oz while alot of it will end up wasted in the cap. And it's even more fustrating when you getting ready for work and waitin for this thing to come out with the right amount. Wish this was in a simple squeez tube.
Liquid -Vichy - Aera Teint Pure Fluid Foundation Finish Up to 12 Hour Wear

Love the way this foundation feels and look, easy to apply and blend. But i reacts to it with a big increase of bumps on my face in just few days. I believe this is a good foundation because i think it's mostly the sunblock that bothers my skin which i have problems with alot.
