Treatments -Unlisted Brand - 3M - Nexcare Acne Patch

This is amazing. It works everytime over pimples that has a white head at the tip. Leave it on overnight and it'll suck all the pus right out and flatten the pimple. If it's a really big one then it'll require two or three more patches.
I was really impressed when I first got it - it is super sharp and plucks out the finest hairs with literally no effort. But just ONE drop into the sink and it's gone. Now the hair just slips right through the tweezers. Should I buy another one? I'm still contemplating, it's very precise but it's not cheap and I do kinda have butterfingers.
This probably wouldn't do much to your pores if you have very oily and congested skin. If you have more of a combination-normal skin type then this will prolong the effects you got after doing a clay mask for a few extra days. It does also wipe off the yellow/darkness on the kness, elbows and underarms quite well though.Other than that, it doesn't really do much to breakouts, pores, blackheads, skintone or oiliness.
A lightweight basic decent moisturizer to use in the day. This provides slightly more hydration compared to Loreal's hydrafresh (anti shine) moisturizer and yet doesn't cause extra shine to oily skin.
I know this is a place for beauty products and reviewing a trampoline is a bit out of place. I believe a lot of the reviews here are from attempts in trying to find the perfect eye cream that will get rid of puffiness around the eyes. Rebounding has de-puffed my eyes like no other eye cream or tool I've ever used. If you suffer from puffiness definitely try rebounding.
It's an oasis that can make a rose grow in the desert. This hydrates my under eyes like no other eye creams I've used before, not even eye creams that are targeted at mature skin. I use this after my Hada Labo retinol lotion (toner) and my under eyes have never looked as supple. Before I discovered this pairing my under eyes were so sad the girls at beauty counters would give me eye cream samples without me requesting for them. Gah. It also works fantastic as a night cream. It doesn't cause congestion or breakouts on my oily skin but just awesome hydration.
Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - Lakme K Therapy Purifying Balancing Shampoo

I'm extremely low maintenance when it comes to my hair. I mean I'm even good to go with just using soap as shampoo. But I'm willing to splurge on this shampoo as after a few days of using this, my hair actually looks bouncy. Wow! Well there are a ton of products out there that will clarify oily hair but not many actually gives it that bouncy fresh look like you get in ads and this shampoo does.

As with a lot of other people who has reviewed this product, I was skeptical as to whether the residue was actually dead skin being rubbed off or was it just the product curling up. So I tried it on my psoriasis patch (sorry disgusting but kind of justifies the product); I applied it over the patch, massaged it and as expected it created a lot of residue and after I cleaned it off it looked a lot smoother, less scales of skin; then immediately after, I applied another layer and massaged and this time there was less residue since most of the dead skin has already been removed from the first round. I don't know how true are my conclusions from this patch test but justifies it for me at least.
Skincare - Body -The Body Shop - Exfoliating Gloves

Back in my uni days this pair of gloves actually got rid of my back acne. If you are on a budget and looking for an effective exfoliator for your body, this is it. It always gives me soft, smooth skin and so easy to use since it well "fits like a glove" and wouldn't slip off soapy hands.
Toners -Unlisted Brand - Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Juice

It works as an awesome soothing toner to calm down redness from sensitivity and acne scars. I use it like I would with a toner at night and I wake up with calmer looking skin.

This didn't do much for me; it didn't moisturize or soothe plus it caused my eyes to tear up! What?! Isn't aloe vera supposed to be soothing?! On the other hand, the juice version of this totally does it's job.
Amongst all the vitamin c products I've tried, this one I actually saw a difference from. It brightens, whitens and plumps up my skin. I've actually gone about one and a half shades lighter in my foundation after using this and if I pat it on my post acne scars for 15-30 secs it helps lighten my scars faster. Pricing is actually pretty reasonable for a vitamin c serum. Too bad they have pulled out the counters and now I'll have to order them online which is too troublesome.
The effects were the same as the original squalane that comes in a clear bottle, which is good but I didn't see the extra "oomph" from the added Q10 in this. So I guess I'll just stick to the original one and not pay extra for this.
I use this as the last step of my night time routine to seal in all the moisture which helps heal and repair the skin. Although it's an oil, it doesn't cause congestion or breakouts. Even my sis-in-law who has sensitive skin agrees and this is almost the only moisturizer she can use without causing extra sensitivity, at least at this moment. The packaging is very good and wouldn't cause spillage even if you have butter fingers. The bottle doesn't look that big but a little goes a long way and love that it's fragrance free as well.
Toners -Unlisted Brand - Hada Labo Retinol Lifting and Firming Lotion

This is fantastic for desert dry skin. My under eyes are so dry I can see lines. So I apply two layers of this (apply one layer, 30 seconds to 1 minute later apply the next layer) and it looks plump for the first time since I was 21 I guess. So pleased and dare I say this works even better than SKII's cellumination mask in lotion at a fraction of the price and no irritations.
