This did not do anything but made my black head stands out more (maybe it cleaned out other pores so that sever/big black heads stands out?) This really reminds me of the differin gel that I used to use. I prefer garden of wisdom’s mandalic % marine over this gel to manage my blackhead.
I got these shampoo bar in Coconut Milk, Neem & Tea tree and Chamomile & Citrus. It made my skinny, fine hair look oily after using this bar. I so wanted to love it at least Chamomile & Citrus one since it sounded like for fine hair but I think this bar will works better in ppl who has thicker hair.

I really like the smell and silkiness of the cream but it does not keep my skin moist enough till the next day. I really like how it feels on my skin right after I put on this cream though..... I also prefer pump style cream over jar.
I normally can tolerate acid. I do use AHA, salicylic acid, and glycolic acid. This is also glycolic acid but the burning and irritating sensation was so strong so that I had to wash my face. I tried it again on different occasion but the result was the same. I wish I could have used it.
Lotions/ Creams -Lac Hydrin - Lac-Hydrin Five Moisturizing Lotion

Sadly, this was too oily for me. When I put on after shower, it still feels sticky next morning. Also my skin broke out from using this cream. I wished this cream worked on me at least where I need it most, like on my elbows, knees etc..I prefer CeraVe as my all over body cream. For the problem areas (elbows knees), I started using water peeling before applying body lotion for better result.
Self Tanners -Unlisted Brand - Savage Bronzer ] [DISCONTINUED]

This has really dark color and looks reddish mud/dirt on my skin. This will not work on my NC20-25 skin color. I think I need more lighter color bronzer.
It is not pigmented enough (black color looks gray) and it smudged a lot. I purchased in bold brown and basic black. I prefer Prestige’s waterproof eyeliner over these eyeliners.
It hydrates my skin like typical cream but It makes my skin healthy and strong looking which I like. BTW, I use Desert Youth 4x one.
I always use Aveeno body products and it works lovely however, this one caused allergic reaction/hives on my skin which is extremely rare for me. maybe I have allergic reaction to shiitake mushroom... but I can eat shiitake no problem...so don't know why I got hives.
It’s all right. I like the smell, texture & packaging however it does not really sink into my skin and did not do much to improve my skin. When I put on, the color of cream helped my skin look healthy but it did not really help to improve my skin/ skin tone. I can see why some ppl like this product, I was hoping it would work on me too since the price is great and all…

As other ppl said, I love the smell but that’s all. It really looks oily and heavy on my hair as if I haven’t washed my hair for a long time… yeah dirty hair look… when I just use it only on my tip of my hair, it looks still oily and somehow dry.. I don’t know how to explain it but this product is not for me.
I used it for a month. It did not burn nor sting my face and it just did not do anything on my face period. Nothing changes, nothing better. =/ It was not even awesome moisturizer for the price ($85) too. I prefer SKII with this price range.
This can work for someone who has not many facial oil problems.. You have to use it when ur skin is not oily (just washed face) If its not then, even rubbing or washing it off did not remove the clay which went deep into the pores and created pimples. well, at least that happened to me... When you have small, non to slight oily face it might work but not for me.

No matter what I did (saran rap over it etc..) it did not sink into my skin and stick to everything I touched.. it was just too oily for me. This is supposed to heal your scars fast and promote healthy skin..etc.. but I didn’t see any faster healing than usual and somehow despite of the stickiness/ oiliness it did not moisturize my skin well. Since its so sticky..I prefer tube form over a jar.
Masks -Unlisted Brand - Aztec - Indian Healing Clay

It feels really strong as if it’s sucking/ cleaning my pores but it did not do much on my skin. Too bad... since price was so cheap I wish I liked it more. So far, I prefer Shiseido’s Naturgo clay mask (for the convince and performance) or Ella Bache’s Matte finish solution (at this point, I can’t live without it)
