I like this stuff and it exfoliate my skin well. The consistency is sticky, but it absorb well after that. I will repurchase if I haven't find a alternative. The only thing I don't like about this is the fact that the company have a very misleading label. It claims that this product helps to stimulate collagen production, however there are little research in this area to back up their claims.
I just love this product. It moisturize my skin without feeling greasy. I like this a lot better then the normal version since i felt that one wasn't moisturizing enough. Even though I have used this all throughout summer but it doesn't make my skin more oily and mostly importantly, it doesn't clog up my pores or make it look more noticeable. In some case my skin can react to product when i first try it, but this is every gentle and my sensitive skin doesn't show any reaction to it what so ever. The only downside is the packaging. It comes in a tub without anything to get the product out. I have to use a tool from another brand. the texture is not that thick. I think it could be put in a tube of some sort. But it's not that important to me so I will totally repurchase again.

I really really want to like this product. But this product make my skin red and irritated every time i try it out. sadly, i still have so much left which i have no idea what to do with. it's quiet expensive as well. because of the price I keep coming back to it hoping that this experience will be better. But my skin just got painful after every use. I suppose if you don't have super sensitive skin, then you could give this a try. But I do recommend testing it out first.
Lipstick -Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti

The moment I saw this colour I knew I wanted to try it. And just as I thought, out of all the lip sticks and butters I brought with that purchase, this have to be my favourite. In terms of lasting power, this product really lacks. But because I have really dry lips, this product work like really well. It is quiet pigmented yet your could shire it out to suit your liking. The colours compliment me well and doesn't dry out my lips. I would give it a 5 if it lasts, but even so, I would purchase this again.
I really want to like this product, but unfortunately, my skin doesn't like it. I have combination, acne prone skin which is quiet sensitive. I brought this because it said to regulate sebum and help with hydrating and increase skin radiant. But upon first application i immediately noticed my skin goes red. After persisted usages i noticed red bumps on my skin which is a sign that my skin doesn't like it. However, this stuff does make your skin glow this healthy radiant that even other complimented me on that. But due to my skin sensitivity, I will not repurchased. Pros: - Radiant, skin - Pores less noticeable Cons - Skin inflammation - Red bumps on face
My skin doesn't like this very much. upon application it stinks my skin and after a while it make them red and irritated. I didn't give this several tries but it doesn't seems to be working out for me. I suppose my skin just doesn't like the ingredient. If you are find using chemical suncreen, then this might be for you. but if you find that your skin goes red and irritated from other chemical sunscreen, this might not help.
This is an ok concealer. It wasn't expensive so I could bypass for the unimpressive quality. It does covers, but is very drying and doesn't blends in very well. If you are not careful and doesn't moisturize your under eye area, it will make you fine line show up because the formular isn't creamy. It pretty hard to blend as well and dries on your skin. But it does conceal some what and it doesn't seems to worsen the state of my ski, therefore I give this a 3/5. But i wouldn't recommend this nor will I purchase it again.
Moisturizers -DDF - Ultra Lite Oil-Free Moisturizing Dew

I tried the old formula and liked it and my skin like it. It wasn't the best moisturizer but it give enough moisture and didn't cause negative effect on my skin and it kept it clear. After suffering from break out from my other stuff, I decided to return to this just to be safe. I was out of luck, the new formula is just too much for my skin. It didn't clear out my skin and make it smooth. But something in the formula my skin doesn't like, it make it so swollen, painful, irritated and red looking. Tips to people, test it out before you buy. I have to do that from now on.
This is certainly a great product. It provide my dry hands with enough moisture. Smooth out the texture and make it feel great. Really, I wish my face was as hydrated, smooth and soft. Before I use this, I always get dry flaky patches on my hand. It will appear wrinkling quiet frequently. But now it much better. I don't use this every day. Only during times when my hands felt dry. Therefore, it last my ages. So worth the cash. Would totally recommend those who look for basic hand care.

This product exfoliate well. Since I have acne, I prefer using chemical exfoliant. After using this I do notice my skin gotten more smoother and the small bumps have improved. However my skin is a little bit sensitive so I could only use this at the most, ever other day. Also, every time I use this, my skin produced more oil. Must be a skin reaction to the product. Therefore I could only give this a 4 Just want to add that this will only exfoliate, it will not help with other form of acne. If you acne is cause my congestion then this may help, but if it was cause by other means, then this will do little.

I have finished the whole product and I have to say, even though it is expensive, it does what it suppose to do. It helps with skin congestion. My old cleanser was cleaning my skin well so I didn't see a big differences. However my new skin cleanser was not as effective therefore my skin was really congestion. I stopped using this for a few weeks due to skin sensitivity reason. But after using it again, it greatly improved my skin. I could see a differences after I wash it off.The congestion have gotten a lot better. My pores were minimize. If you have sensitive skin, this may irritated it a little. But test it out before you purchase. It's good for those will oily and congested skin.
Cleansers -Olay - Sensitive Skin Foaming Face Wash

this isn't meant for those with sensitive yet oily skin. It didn't clean very well. I didn't use heavy makeup. The only thing I use is a tinted sunscreen. But it couldn't even remove that very well. Been using it a couple of days and already my whole face is covered with clogged bumps.
Very disappointed. It broke me out like there was no tomorrow. my skin was clear, I have no breakout. The only reason I wanted to switch cleanser was the previous one have tiny stuff that exfoliate my skin...so using it twice a day have over exfoliated my skin...and I didn't like that effect. So i wanted a gentle cleanser that wash well yet is gentle. However it turned my skin upside down. I broke out everywhere on my face including under my chin area which I never have any issues before. Some will say that it's natural for your skin to get use to cleanser. But I've found before if that cleanser works for you, you wouldn't break out even once from it. I did give it 2 weeks trial though...but my old break out isn't going away, and I keep getting new one. Suppose this doesn't work for everyone. Lucky it wasn't pricey.

I regret buying this, it was costly but didn't meet up to it's claims. I was experiencing winter dry skin so I wanted something extra to boost it up. This doesn't help at all, the bright side is, it didn't make my skin worse.

I really wish to like this, but I can't. Pros - extremely like weight - I thought it went bad because it was that watery. It even more lighter then a lot of serum I have tried. - so far, it doesn't seems to clog my pores - absorb quickly Cons - isn't moisturizing enough. May be a good option in summer. But now it's winter, and if I didn't use my hyaludronic acid together with it, my skin would feel tight in my oily t-zone and I have dry patches all over my other areas. - gave a sticky tight finish after application. - it's quiet expensive for just a small bottle. - The packaging the pump doesn't pump out product well after a few use. Overall: I think this will be a great option for those with very oily skin. But if you have combination skin, this may not be moisturizing enough.
