Bought this because of the smell, and boy, was it a huge mistake. My skin is super oily and acne prone, and this made my skin break out like crazy. I thought it was such a shame if I had to chuck it since, as I mentioned, I'm in love with the scent. So I gave it several tries, on several different weeks, but to my utter disappointment, I was left with huge pimples all over my face every single time after I used it. And to make matters worse, I didn't really like the slightly oily sheen left behind on my face after every application. As for moisturising, it did an okay job, but there are better moisturisers out there that moisturise just as well, and don't make me break out. Will definitely not buy again.
Another gem from MBD, this aloe mask is a godsend. My face is currently dry, slighty flaky, and with small red, irritated bumps on the cheeks. After putting this on for 45 minutes, I noticed an immediate difference to my skin. The bumps had subsided, there was a lot less flakiness and my skin felt so well moisturised and even had a slight glow to it. Even better still, there was still a lot of serum left in the mask and I could use the remaining serum to moisturise my legs. No allergy reactions whatsoever. And it's price is really great too. I bought mine in hong kong, so it's a lot more affordable than in Singapore. Holy grail! Highly recommended
The moment i apply it onto my face, i can feel this tingling sensation. It's bearable, nothing too much. But as it dries, i can barely smile, because it's so tight! However, the end result was wonderful. After waiting for 15 minutes, i washed off the mask and lo and behold, my smile pimples around my mouth had actually reduced in size, so that they were almost invisible. And my face looked so clear and beautiful. As for oil control, it did a pretty decent job, i didn't have to blot so much throughout the day.Will repurchase.

I bought this on a whim, and it actually works quite well. I only wear foundation or bb cream when i go to school, so when i wash my face when i reach home, this wash manages to remove all the makeup i wear. It was mainly the scrublet that enticed me to try this product. And thank god it wasn't a let-down. After a long day at school. it just feels so good to feels the scrublet massaging my face and getting all the dirt out. It's not harsh at all. After rinsing off the was, my face feels soft and smooth and it even has a nice glow to it. BUT it leaves my skin feeling a little tight. I can accept that, because after moisturizing the tightness goes away. I'm not bothered by the smell at all, it's just light and fresh. I probably will not repurchase as i have enough facial washes and scrubs to last me a while, and like i said, i bought this on a whim.

The smell is lovely and it doesn't break me out. However, its dark spot fading power wasn't really good. My acne marks were lightened, but only slightly. The oil control is good though, about 2 hours plus. Will not repurchase, as I want a serum that will fade away acne marks quickly
Cleansers -Kiehls - Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser

I received the sample when i bought the moisturizer from this range. Well, i must say that i love it. After washing my face with it, my face feels squeaky clean, but not dry or tight at all. It feels moisturized and there's this pretty glow on my face. Too bad about the price though. Will not repurchase since there are other cleansers out there that are half the price yet work just as well.
This is probably the most rich conditioner i have ever used. I only need to use about half about my usual amount of conditioner to get sleek, shiny, soft and frizz free hair, which is really fortunate since this is more expensive than the average conditioner in Watsons. However, since this is very rich, be sure to be careful about washing it out properly otherwise you might end up with oily and limp hair. Highly recommended for dry and damaged hair.

I've always been amazed by the quality of sunsilk products, especially since the price is so affordable. Well, this is no difference. The smell is divine, keeps my hair in great condition (meaning no spilt ends, smooth and mostly frizz free and very soft.) It's performance is on par with my more expensive loreal Elvive conditioner, so i am seriously considering switching conditioners.
I'm on my second tube already and I don't usually buy seconds of my beauty or skincare products, so that says a lot. First things first, I love the smell! So fresh and refreshing. The great thing about this is the scrub. It's the first scrub I've used that gets rid of all my blackheads. I don't use it as a wash or mask, so I can't really comment on that, but the scrub is amazing! My skin is glowing and blackhead free. And thanks to the salicylic acid, my pimples are also greatly lessened. Hg!

Yes, it did help to ward off my pimples, BUT, since it contains a very high level of alcohol, I stopped using it as it dried out my face and left it red and feeling really dry and tight. So now, I use it only on my back, which helps ward off the pimples there a little. Probably will not purchase again, as I find the price too expensive for a back-toner
My scalp is insanely oily, after washing it in the afternoon, the next day, when I wake up, it will be greasy already. So I was really desperate for something that would control the oil. I chanced upon batiste in guardian and decided to buy it immediately. I was pretty happy with the price ($6.90), nothing that would break the bank. The next day, my hair was oily, as usual. So I reached for my newly purchased dry shampoo and sprayed it all over the roots of my hair. And oh wow! My hair became instantly full of volume and the oil just vanished! The white streaks vanished after I rubbed it into my hair. After I went to school, I felt really refreshed, a far cry from the usually oily, yucky feeling that I have on my scalp. At the end of the day, my hair still felt good. Highly recommended! Oh, and did I mention that I LOVE the smell?

I got the 80ml travel size to try out, and quite frankly, I am pretty disappointed in it. After washing it out, my hair still felt really smooth and good. However, after letting it air-dry, my hair felt slightly rough was frizzier than normal, a far cry from my usually silky feeling hair. Thank god I bought only the travel size one. Such a pity, since I loved the smell.

This is the most AMAZING cream I have tried. It is super-moisturizing. I used to have really dry,scaly and itchy skin before this and people used to say that my skin was worse than my mother's. So I asked her what her secret was. She presented me with this tub of cream and after constant use, my skin feels really smooth and is glowing! My mother swears by this cream to, and trust me, her skin still nicer than my, probably due to the 20+ years of using this.

I used to have crazy frizz in my super long, straight hair, which really irritated me a lot since I have always thought that I have good hair. So one day, I ran over to watsons to look for a hair serum for frizzy hair- and found this. After showering and waiting for my hair to air-dry, I pumped 2 pumps into my palms and applied it onto my hair. Voila! My hair appeared super glossy and the frizz vanished by about 70%. With constant use, the frizz is only about 5% or less compared to before I used this. Will keep on buying and buying
This is the best conditioner I have ever used! My hair is pretty high maintenance, wayyyy past my shoulders. Well, this is one of the only conditioners so far that leaves my hair feeling silky smooth and frizz free. It even got rid of my split ends. Even my hair-stylist was amazed at the changes. Now, I don't need to apply serum before bed anymore. And did I mention that it smells wonderful too? I will definetely continue to repurchase.
