I'm in LOVE with the scent of this toner! it really clears away all the residue left by the cleanser and it's soothing on my sensitive problematic skin. plus, it's mattifying as well without drying my skin out
i use this to cleanse all my make-up and sometimes just to wipe off the dirt after working-out. i have to admit that it doesn't remove ALL of my makeup but if you really massage it into your skin, it really cleans off the impurities really well! however, it does sting my eyes when i use this to remove my eye make-up. this is one of the best milk cleanser i've used on my acne problematic skin and will definitely continue if i can't find a better option :)
Liquid -Chanel - Mat Lumiere Long Lasting Luminous Matte Fluid Makeup SPF 15

one of my favorite foundation, doesn't clog pores or cause any breakouts, and it lasts forever. it leaves my skin glowing which is a huge plus and conceals my acne scars really well! however i do notice that it's can be slightly tricky when it comes to blending and will cause patchiness without proper blending, which consumes more time compared to other foundation.
after reading all the reviews here i decided to try out the sea salt myself. i mix my toner with sea salt and i have to admit that it does irritate my skin to the extend that it was stinging and it was so painful that i had to apply aloe vera gel right away. however after using it for a few days the irritation went down and my pores are smaller. i do get breakouts still but it does reduce the size the next day. i mix this with my dr haushka mask as well and once again, it was stinging as hell. however it does give me a radiant glow after applying it. it sounds way too complicated but overall i'll continue it, maybe not daily and no i won't repurchase it cause i still have a HUGE bottle left!

the only thing i hate about this product is the price and the smell. it smells somewhat weird but it deep cleanse my face really well and my skin feels really fresh after that. plus it doesn't dries off my face and i woke up with glowing skin the day after ( well i use a hydrating mask later on).
probably one of my favorite lip balm among others! this give a little minty feeling upon application and i do think that it somehow plumps up my lips a little! plus, it moisturizes instantly even on cracked lips :) the only downside that it's slightly expensive compared to others but yes, i'll definitely repurchase!

this is an absolutely must have! yes it is expensive but i bought the salon size which is so much more cheaper as i run a spa. it leaves my skin glowing and radiant, plus reducing all the redness and scar. it does not dry out your zits or whatsoever, but it does help in reducing the size of it, for me it took only three days for it to be gone, minus the dryness and scar! plus you only need a little bit of it, with salon size, i doubt i can finish it in a year! :)
i bought the salon size of this product and trust me, it's DEFINITELY so much more cheaper as i run a spa. i broke out the first week after using it, and i only used it in the morning so i was quite disappointed. however after attending training and all i decided to give it a try, and somehow it works wonder on my skin! my face is now much more hydrated and it's less oily on the side of my cheeks. it also reduces the redness and scarring somehow, but i think the balm is the one behind it ;) it does not like, minimize the size of your breakout immediately as it's not a zit buster or whatsoever, but it does help in calming it down and my breakout is gone within 3 days without scar or any dryness! to those who experienced breakouts after using this, give it a chance as some people tend to breakout after switching their product.
i received sample size of this and thought that it was good as i finished it and it did not broke me out. bought a full size jar and i've totally regretted it! my face was healing from acne and once i continue using this it broke me out badly! i really regret buying it!
DEFINITELY A MUST-HAVE! This is the ONLY product that I turn to, other than the drying mask, when i have breakouts! however after using this lotion my skin cleared up ALOT! and trust me, even my friend complement my skin! you might not want to get other stuff but you must get this ;)
it's my favorite mask of all the masks that I've used! i can see results within one use! breakouts are slightly reduced with just one use but this kinda dries out my skin, and it doesn't just go off after i clean my face. i can actually see the product seeping into my pores for some reason. the smell is really horrible, but you'll get used to it eventually. but one thing that i noticed is that this product is actually not that effective when I leave it on overnight. it becomes really, like a normal mask? i don't know, but it's a must-have!
i actually like this a lot! apply it on anywhere with zits or bumps and it'll eventually vanish off within 2-3 days, some smaller zits within 2 days max! however some of those bumps underneath took awhile to go away though, and can ended up becoming dark flat bumps. it also stings like hell when i apply the pink color substance, however the result is really good :)
I didn't like this at first as I thought that it's really useless and doesn't do much until I used this on top of my Retin-a and it works wonder!!! My huge zits just vanished in just one night and those under-the-surface zits are gone too! Maybe it's the retin-a helping it but somehow, this is amazing!

This is a stable anti-blemish treatment in my skincare routine, despite the strong smell, it's effective in reducing breakouts, i'm not saying that it clear or zap your zits overnight, it shrinks it, and it actually takes around 2-3 days to clear it. once i apply it on my breakouts, i actually feel a tingling sensation, well, it's alright for me as i know it's working! A must-try! :)

God this product is extremely horrible! The advertisement is just a big hoo-haa! I was fooled by its ad! This mascara did absolutely nothing! It didn't even lengthen or darken or do anything!!! it's just a plain disappointment! And to add on, I have already long eyelashes and this mascara is just absolutely useless!
