I hate to agree with low review on this product. I got this with SK-II gift with purchase, but if I had bought it with my own money, I would be crying. This is such a BASIC moisturizer for area for under makeup, meaning, this doesnt even give enough moisture for the price. I'm almost using up La Mer the eye balm intense, and its doing nothing but being basic moisturizer for under makeup either. Personally, I loved EL brown pot eyecream/gel the best for nighttime
This has some new fangled dispenser, that you twist and product comes up from top.... not really good idea, because when you twist and sweep the product, i keep having to sweep sweep sweep until there are no more product sqeezing out on its own. For product, honestly, I'm not sure if my skin is getting used to SK-II or not, but its just nothing but basic moisturizer for me. I put NO on would you buy this product again, but I'm trying out new skincare line and will come back to SK-II to see if this product was nothing but basic moisturizer, or if this is amazing product but if my skin was just so used to SK-II
I usually really love oil cleansers, so when SK-II had gift with purchase, I ordered 2 of this facial treatment cleansing oil without even trying. I would use up the 2 I bought, but I wouldn't be repurchasing. I love oil cleanser, and I love SK-II, but I like specific finish for oil cleanser, but this is not really cutting it. It's sort of light liquid, as opposed to thick liquid like DHC which I prefer. and SK-II rinses clean, but not clean-clean like DHC. But I do like SK-II for days when I feel dry, since this rinses and leave skin little bit filmish-moisture, so if that's what you are looking for in oil cleanser, then this is for you
This is life saver for my sensitive, oily, acne-prone, yet dehydrated skin. Since my skin is acne-prone and dehydrated, I do still need moisturizer, but a LOT of them just break me out. This FTE is light enough, yet moisturing enough, that my skin improved SO much all my friends and family notice and compliments my skin. I used SK-II exclusively last year, and I no longer have acne-prone skin :) In the morning, I used Facial Treatment Cleanser (soft foaming cleanser) Facial Treatment Clear Lotion, Brightening Derm Specialist and sunscreen. In the evening, I used SKII oil cleanser, facial treatment cleanser, facial treatment lotion, brightening derm specialist, and either lift emulsion or whitening source skin brightner, or signs cream. Basically I have tried all the SK-II products except their eye film, skin refining treatment, "ultimate revival' series, and signs up-lifter. If you suffer from acne, and is oily skinned, but still dehydrated, please give SK-II a try. I've used SK-II for past 2.5 years, I dont really notice that "amzingness" anymore, because my skin is so used to pitera products, so I'll try some other skincare and come back to SK-II again when my skin is used to other products.
I love to use this after my FTE so light, yet complete moisture to my oily skin. This product doesnt sting, doesnt smell, and is very gentle, and my skin feels hydrated yet light. I'm so glad SK-II came out with this "light lotion" for oily skin who doesnt like to wear cream during the day even if its light.
As much as I love my SK-II line, this is one of duds, for me at least. I do have oily skin, so I was really excited to try this, but it doesnt really provide moisture nor it completely absorbs into the skin. It doesnt leave film on my face, but i look very shiny, like i have saran wrap around my face, and it stays little tacky. I'd stick with Facial Lift Emulsion they came out together with Clear Solution. Their packaging is the same, but facial lift emulsion is in "emulsion" form, and it absorbs into skin really nicely.
Even after oil cleansing, followed by foam cleansing, I use this on cotton pad to remove all the makeup debris from my face that oil AND foam couldnt remove. I used to buy one bottle of this Clear Lotion every month until I found Clarisonic. Clarisonic does seriously remove all the trace of makeup, so when I use Clear Lotion on cotton pad after, its just white with no debris. Now I only use Clear Lotion when Im too lazy to use my clarisonic. Still I make sure I have at least one bottle with me at all times and I will keep repurchasing this liquid goodness.
I have been using SK-II for almost 2 years, and of all the SK-II product, Cellumination line are total let down for me. This cellumination essence and cream, the packaging is beautiful, but the product somehow rubs together on my skin, and ball into white particles like eraser. It would NOT absord into skin. The more I rub the product, the more it clings to each other, and makes my skin look like im peeling off a mask. I have used the product right after cleansing, right after exfoliating, still the product clings to each other and leaves my skin with what only looks like peel off mask debris. I still love all the other SK-II products. I LOVE their clear lotion, FTE, signs cream, oil cleanser and creamy cleanser, signs eyecream, and whitening source essence. This is really beautiful, clear greenish gel-cream, but i'll just stick to my regular signs cream. Only Cellumination is fail for SK-II for me.

Eye Primer -NARS - Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

OMG!!! Best eye primer in the world for me. It wears like a iron!!!! TFSI still creased on my oily lid, and I used to LOVE original UDPP, but their 1st deluxe size was diluted regular sized= doesnt work like original UDPP, and I also got deluxe size in new tube packaging, and it dried out so fast. After being disappointed by TFSI and UDPP, I didnt know where to turn, but NARS to the rescue :D I'll be sticking to NARS from now on or until they reformulate to be worse.
damn. I love studio fix powder foundation, but not liquid. it broke me out PLUS it's not smooh to apply. maybe cuz I'm so used to smoothness of MUFE HD foundation, but it's hard to blend out with brush and it break out my acne prone oily skin.
Holy moly! totally unexpected find! I got sample package in B30 Beige Rose. It looked pink- Im yellow-toned foundation wearer, but on my skin, it doesnt look pink, but more neutral, and I was thinking since it's "aqua" foundation, it was sheer, it IS sheer, but it still managed to have medium coverage on my post-acne scar face. Also I'm extremely oily skinned, but this foundation doesn't feel "moisturizing" as I thought. I will definately purchase full size bottle of this foundation for summertime :)
I got the full sized Bionic mascara in Jet Black with some Smashbox purchase few months ago. Tried it tonight- doesnt smudge and separates well, but NO VOLUME, NO LENGTH, NO DEFINITION. If you are to use this mascara as wiping off e/s from you eyelashes only purpose, yeah, but as "mascara" it does nothing. Good thing it was free other wise I would be pissed.
Apricot SB started my collection of SB (Pink, Pink Quartz, Bronze, and Gold). I started to collect them because of the hype, and now swapping away all other SB except Apricot. For I have super oily skin, usually I hate shimmery products on my face, but for night out this is great blusher/highlighter. Apricot give nice, healthy, glowy peachish color that can never go wrong.
I had so much expectation for this product. I have uneven skintone with loads of post acne marks, and about to develop some wrinkles (hitting 30 soon T_T), and all this product did was to make my skin red, itch, and i got tons of tiny bumps all over my skin. I stopped using it and tried to re use it after a month, still same thing happened. Another 3 months later, i gave it another go, still same. I can't even use this as expensive hand cream, because my hand would get red and itch too! Sample is a must for this product if you can get it.
