So far so good, and yes it's sheer but it'll cover most of my imperfections with 2-3 coats which still feels lightweight. I set it with powder like I do any other BB cream, even the Korean ones. At least in this case the med/deep color is my EXACT skin tone so that's one benefit it has compared to the Korean ones that I have to follow up with foundation & powder.
Worked like a charm for the stache lol However I had to lighten twice for side burns and chin. Overall its gentle and I hate that I have to use it but its better than shaving which scars and discolors my skin.
I've used this mask for several years now and just recently I started using the Daiso Makeup Cleanser > Charcoal Cleanser (of the same brand) > then this mask. From what I can see, using this mask in conjunction with your other products will allow it to work at best to 75-80% of its potential, but now I see why it is suggested that products used should be of the same brand. These products really do complement each other...I now feel that I'm really getting everything out of this mask.
This is good so far... I find that it looks best when I rub the liquid in the palms first, and then apply in upward "circles" in stead if "strokes".

So far...so good! I'm 27, but I feel that after reading Chizu Saeki's book, that a neck cream is necessary as the skin is different from the face. For one, there are not the oil glands in the neck like the face so usually a neck cream is richly formulated to moisturize and firm the neck skin. It makes my neck smooth, and my makeup I apply to even out discoloration seems to go on smoother as well. i will update in the future.
I just started using the Saeki skin care methods a couple of weeks ago. I have experimented with other products and this one gives the best result without paying 40 bucks for the lotion Saeki recommends. It has alcohol but the moisterizers outweigh it. Japanese lotion like what is needed for a good lotion mask is NOT like American toners,even alcohol-free ones like I thought. It will still work, but not as well. This lotion is a good bet. By the way I got the light formula for oily acne skin.
I love this eyeliner! It goes on soft and doesn't hurt my eyes by pulling the skin. The color is vibrant and gorgeous and easily double as a highlighter for the face!! A bit more expensive than most eyeliners I use though.
These are used to make jewelry and crafts in the US but in Asia these are used to exfoliate the skin. Soak them in hot water for 2-3 minutes and place your finger in the cut out circle of the cocoon. You can re-use one 2-3 times but I usually a new one each time. The cocoon imparts a substance called sericin that is very good for the skin.
I've tried expensive brands of azuki bean scrubs, I find it best to just make it myself. I put about 6 oz. in a blender, and get the consistency as fine as possible, and I then put them through a fine mesh like one made for tea. I then take that yield and place a double-folded piece of cheesecloth on top of the same mesh, and the yield from that will be my final result. In the end, you will see little to NO brown outer shell pieces. Believe it or, not this stuff "lathers" a little when mixed with water because the powder is such a fine texture. Great for oily skin!

These masks smell strongly of tomatoes, but I like it, like tomato soup!! Anyway these are great masks and try to use them twice a week. After use, my face is soft and smooth, even the next morning. I have to force myself to quick poking my face because I'm loving the smooth texture! I have not used them lately because the only way to keep them on my face is to lay down, but I'm too anxious to just lay there for 20-30 minutes!! Available from Hong Kong companies, ordered mine from Malaysia.
These eye masks are like jelly that's saturated in serum. They adhere well to skin skin and feel & fit nice on the under-eye area. They're usually sold in Malaysia, and few websites have them & ship them to the US so be prepared to pay out for shipping >_< !!!
This stuff is for oily, troubled skin. The texture looks gel water-like, but is thick. Somewhat herbal-like scent which I like because it makes the cream seem more "natural". So far so good, will update later.
My signature scent back in high school, I've since moved on to more "grown-up" perfumes (a.k.a expensive..lol) but I'd buy it again just for nostalgia.
Expensive but worth it!! I usually do not ask chicks what perfume they have, but when one of my former co-workers had this I asked, and soon as it was time for lunch break I went to Macy's and bought it!! Worth every penny!!

One of my FAVORITE fragrances of all-time, tied with Dior Addict, I usually have to get this on a $$ splurge but so worth it!!
