One of the best makeup remover that rinse well and do not have the greasy afterfeel that some of the cleansing oils do. It is in creamy texture but once you rubbed it in, it turned to oil. Love it...!
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - Shea Butter Foot Cream
ANGMEL 4/14/2004 2:11:00 AM
I expected the scent and texture to be similar to the hand cream and that was why it took me a while to give this one a try ( I was using the handcream on my feet at times), and so when I finally got to try this, I was instantly feel in love with the scent and also its texture. It is runnier than the hand cream and the scent is very cooling to my nose, a bit of lavender and a bit of minty-ness thrown in. Good to soothe those tired and dry feet.
I like that the granules in this aren't as harsh as most of the scrub outthere but yet it still leave your skin bright and polished looking without causing redness to it. The scent can be a bit overpowering but it isn't the cloying type so I don't have problem with it.
This felt cooling and comforting ( to the mind) upon application but I don't see any positive effect at all. My skin didn't feel the soothing effect that it claims to give, in fact, I think it slightly irritated my chin area..
Masks -Sisley - Masque Givre - Botanical Mask with Linden Blossom
ANGMEL 2/22/2004 5:39:00 AM
I think this is the only SISLEY mask that I will re-purchase if I run out it one day, provided if I haven't found a better replacement :) Whenever my skin need a cleansing mask but at the same time also need something can double as a relaxing with a bit of hydration thrown in, I always reach out for this. You know one of those days when your skin feel stuffyb clogged yet dehydrated and looking duller..this is when the mask come into play.
Very mild deep cleansing mask that if you truly want a deep cleansing mask that really cleanse and bring out those impurities, this may not be for you. To me, this is more like a pick me up mask when you are in a hurry which also double as mild exfoliating mask. It does make your skin looks better with that little bit of glow and smoothness but the effect just doesn't last on me. There are better masks out there for the price you paid.
Cleansers -Sisley - Buff and Wash Botanical Face Gel
ANGMEL 2/18/2004 9:51:00 PM
I anticipated it to lather, and when it didn't, I thought I probably using too little, so I added a bit more and when it still didn't foam up, only then I realized that it supposed not to. Overall, the granules are a tad too harsh on the skin so I need to be very gentle when moving them around my face. I won't use it everyday, but 3 time weekly is just enough for me. A mediocre product, not better than the cheaper scrubs out there.
Bought this with hesitation due to the mixed reviews I read here but as it said this is good for those with sensitive gum/teeth, I went ahead and took the plunge. I love the refreshing and clean feeling everytime I use it, my teeth feels cleaner than the average toothpastes and I think my gum is loving it as well...:)
I think this buffing cream is a bit too harsh for my skin, yes, it does scrub well and thus my face felt smoother but I also felt that it stinged me a bit and my skin couldn't take this more than once a week. I have thin skin with mild sensitivity.
Mascara -Shiseido - The Makeup Mascara Base [DISCONTINUED]

I expected this to be much better than the Lancome Cil booster but this just doesn't live up to my expectation. And I find this very hard to remove as well even with a waterproof makeup remover. While Cil Booster doesn't weaken my lashes, I feel that this one does.
Cleansers -Principal Secret - Advanced Gentle Deep 4-in-1 Cleanser
ANGMEL 2/11/2004 12:37:00 AM
I used this cleanser once in the past and did finish up the whole bottle. This is a rinse off cleanser but it doesn't foam and gentle enough for removing your eye makeup which makes this a convenience cleansing experience. Didn't dry out or leave my skin taut as well. Love this!
Both Vitalskin and Intral toner are my favorite. For the scent though, I prefer Vitalskin. I feel that they both work great on me but Intral does calm my skin a bit better whenever my skin is in need of calming while Vital gives a better hydrating effect.
I just love this toner! I for one isn't always include toner in my regime but lately been getting some samples of them and started to incorporating it into . This one feel even better than the SISLEY FLORAL TONER on my skin, it hydrate and feel refreshing on and do what a toner supposed to do ( and feel).
I don't have dry skin but find no problem using this even in the summer, though this will be more perfect for those who live in colder climate as it hydrates the skin well and yet won't leave a layer of grease/film after you splash it off with water.
To me this smell heavenly. I didn't expect to like the scent but suprisingly this to me is a scent that just lifting/lighten up your spirit that is just wonderful to have in the shower. It scrubs well and not at all harsh.
