I first used this along with the cleanser and astringent, and during those times it did clear up my acne's but I noticed that after I stopped using it, my acne's came back (till now I'm still struggling with this problem) So I tried buying this moisturizer again with the cleanser, not with the astringent this time cause I wanted to try the Glycolic Acid Toner from Mario Badescu. This moisturizer stings as it did before but also it helped drying up my acne's but it really stings! Also it gave me redness and "allergic reaction" (i guess you can call it that) around the corners of my nose. I tried putting it only on the areas where I have acne's and are oily, I stopped putting it around the corners of my nose when I got that reaction. All in all it's good in drying up my acne's but once you stopped using it, it doesn't last long, your acne's might come back, I think you need to use it continuously. If you have sensitive - acne prone skin be sure to know the parts where to put this on or else you might get the same irritations as I have.

It's good. Although I ain't sure if it helped clearing my acne, cause during those times i'm using this product I still have some acne's, so i'm not sure if it reduced the size of my acne's or not but I don't get acne's that much like i used to when I was using this. So it's all good. I only tried one bottle then switched back to Glycolic Acid Toner, cause my sister said my skin looks more better when I was using the Glycolic Acid Toner.
I'm on my second bottle now! A bottle will last you a long time, unlike the other cleansing gels out there, even though it's expensive, it's ok cause it last a long time, it did clean out my face, and helps prevent upcoming acne, and also it dried out my acne. It's kinda minty....I dunno how to say it, it has a cooling effect in it. LOL It doesn't sting, just cool feeling on your face when you put it. :P Oh yeah! What I hate about this is when it's new, of course it's sealed and whenever I will pull the seal off, it's so hard to peel off, I always get cuts. >.< LOL.
It really dried out all my acne!! One of the best toners I've used, it did what it should, thank god cause it's hella expensive! I tried the whole line of Blue Herbal, and I wasn't disappointed, although when I stopped using it, my acne's were back to work again!! >.< It's very drying, but it didn't bother me cause I'm really oily and acne prone, so it's all good! If you want soft skin, use a different moisturizer, cause when you use the blue herbal moisturizer you might get a really dry face cause it both mattify the skin. Now, I stopped using this astringent, but I'm still using the blue herbal moisturizer and cleansing gel. I wanted to try Mario Badescu's toners for a change, cause I've read a lot of good reviews about it. :)

It's good, but I was expecting it will reduce the lines under my eyes. But it did make my eyes soft, and look more awake. :) Just be careful to get it in your eyes, it stings in mine, and a little blurry, but it will go away after a few minutes. I'll probably buy it again but maybe after I find something that effectively reduce or made the lines under my eyes disappear.
It's really good! I'm on my 2nd bottle now. At first it gave some pimples but after my skin got used to it, it's all good! Covered my blemishes well, I don't feel like my skin is suffocating cause it's more water base than oil, as said on the box. :P Although it's a little thick it's not that hard to blend, there's no smell to it, which is sometimes really irritating. It also gave me a nice complexion, my skin also became brighter even without make up on, maybe because of the whitening and UV protection it has. The anti-wrinkle is a big bonus for me too, since I'm really conscious with having wrinkles. :P

It's good! But Break me out! :( It gave me a glowing skin, and covered my blemishes well! But it broke me out around the chin area. It smells nice too! I like that it's in a pump tube packaging!
It didn't work out for me. I have oily combination skin and Acne prone. I was excited to try this out because this is my first BB Cream and the SA told me that it's Missha's best selling BB Cream, so I gave it a go! But after a few tries I stopped! It's really thick, it has a strong smell which I don't really like! It break me out! At first I thought it was just part of me being "teen", but when I decided to stop using it, my face stop having acne. I didn't finish my tube, not even 1/4!!
I really like this product! It didn't help with healing my acne but it didn't gave me any acne as well, and it reduced my acne scars. It gave me a glowing skin for some reasons, and I love it! ♥ I can actually see the scars from my acne peeling off. It's a really good product!
