On my way to the second jar! Really likes how it works as a daytime moisturizer for me, where it helps to prevent current pimples to leave a scar/dark spots. It also works really well on fresh cuts. After application, the snail cream really sips into the skin, then I will apply the Snail Recovery Gel Cream on top of it to give a matte look. Really like it how it doesn't feels heavy during the mid day & it keeps my face oil free for up to 10 hours.
Tinted Moisturizer -Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Oil Free

I am on my second tube now! Really like how easy it is to apply onto my face, it gives a dewy nice finish after application. This alone doesn't really give much coverage to dark spots/acne scars/acne, so I use the LM Secret Camouflage to cover them, & finish it off with LM Mineral Powder to give it a matte look. Really like it how it doesn't feels heavy at the end of the day.
It somehow works for my weak nails after the removal of gelish nail polish. **one tip on how to go about using this product as instructed by my mum's manicurist is to remove it every 2 days & reapply it** so it will work, & since other reviewers complains about it being yellowish that's because you didnt remove it. :)
Shampoo -Nature's Gate - Pomegranate Sunflower Shampoo

Organic shampoo? I was curious about it hearing about all the harmful chemicals like SLS which leads to cancer. This really smelly good, but it doesnt lather & gets foamy, so I need to squeeze more a lot more shampoo than what is needed for normal shampoos to get my whole head clean. This makes my hair scalp oily, do not like it at all.
Scrubs -InnisFree - Jeju Island Volcanic Pore Scrub Foam

hmmm, its just gives a very smooth & clean feeling when I touch my face after using it, I dont even feel that it really did scrub off the dead skins on my face. Will not be repurchasing it after using it up.
Eyeliner -Unlisted Brand - K-Palette - 24 Hr Real Lasting Eyeliner
agnesbones 1/29/2013 10:48:00 PM
Really like this product !! I wasnt confident to use a liquid eyeliner till my bff introduced this to me when we were on a trip at hk (the land of sasa), the price is relatively cheap, cheaper than what I was using previously. The eyeliner lasted the whole day on my oily lids without the need to apply primer to make it last. ** one tip on using this eyeliner is to give it a hard shake before application to make it not watery/faded liner as the previous reviews complains about it.**
I got this in pear flavor & it does really smell like pear, sounds delicious ya. I only apply it at night before sleeping, as this gives a rather shiny & oily look. Happy to wake up to smooth & soft lips every morning. The only downside is the awkward application hole, where i have to use my fingers to have an even spread.
I really really like this product a lot hence 5 stars for the overall rating! This is to be used 1-2 times a week. Before applying the sleeping pack mask, please please please apply the power essential skin refiner & balancing emulsion. This two products will help the sleeping pack to work to it's maximum efficiency. I usually wash my face with warm water the next morning. It really helps in hydrating my skin for the entire day. It makes me feel like I am glowing haha! Bought it online instead as it is around 40% cheaper as compared to getting it over the counters at where I am living. Not only the huge price difference, it is shipped directly from korea & the product manufacturing date is less than a month away when I have received it. The jar is really sturdy, it comes with a spatula, which I really like it, because this will prevent contamination of the product. I am looking forward to my next jar of laneige sleeping pack.

Perfect shaver for lazy girls like me ! If you're in a hurry, this shaver is what you need. Just wet the area you're going to shave then just run it across. The soap bar is attached to the shaver so you need not apply anything which conventional shavers requires you to apply the shaving cream first. Using this for years, I never suffer from any cuts. & I really like that it comes with a wall holder to hold your shaver when its not in use.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack
agnesbones 10/9/2012 12:32:00 AM
This is the first eye liner I've ever used & bought! Coming from a beginner's point of view, this is really really very easy to use. But the down side is that it smudges onto my lower eye easily even with Mac eye primer. I guess this doesn't work really well on oily skin & on people who perspire a lot. & be sure to keep this pot in a cool place, my pot is currently dried up.
Sunscreen -La Roche Posay - Anthelios SPF 30 AC Fluid Extreme
agnesbones 10/9/2012 12:05:00 AM
This was recommended to me by my dermatologist, so I've decided to give it a try. The only times when I use it is when I am going outdoors. This sunscreen works really well on my acne prone skin, & it doesn't cause me to outbreak after a long day out in the sun with all the dirt & sweat. One good tip to go about applying this on your face is do not over apply it thinking that more is good = more protection. This is a major no no, over applying it will cause your face to be oilier than usual, & it will make your face look whiter & even break out. On the side note, I don't know is it me or the bottle at home is old, I find the spf 50 version more pleasant smelling.
Currently on the second stick, best lip balm for me so far. It leaves a slight minty taste & smell after application. It helps to moisture the lips well, without making it feel super dry after the layer you've applied went off. As for the price it's kind of on the high end at where I am living at, where lip balms can be easily picked up at drugstores for one third of burt's bee lip balm price.
Cleansers -Avene - Cleanance soapless gel cleanser for oily skin
agnesbones 8/4/2012 12:00:00 PM
A very good cleanser for pimple/acne prone skin. Unlike usual cleanser for blemished skin, it doesn't feel tight & dry after use. The only thing I dislike about this product is the part to squeeze the liquid out.
