I really wanted to luv this as i luved the marcelle moisture lotion...but now its 50/50... made my skin tight too like the other MUAer sad...and i broke out...the red bumps that are wayy underneath the skin and hard to get rid of...i think cus its too "oil free" i actually have no problems using other moisturizers with a lil oil even if its mineral:P...but voila since i like to "experiment" so much w/ skin care i mixed a lil bit of jojoboa oil into it and thus its not oil free anymore...but ya my skin feels much plump and soft now so i guess i can use up the rest of the bottle:)...will update on my lil experiment after

omg omg omg...the one of the BEST smelling lotions i have ever used...ahh heaven ...at least its the type of smell alot of younger MUAers would like...:P hmm sinks in very fast, isnt greasy at all, dirt cheap...i dont think the effect lasts that long tho and weird bottle :( 4.5 overall
hai~ i should listen more to u lovely MUA ladies...it seems like every shoppers and LD cosmetic lady recommends this for some strange reason...so ya i got it...used it...and was too lazy to return it and probably couldnt:P well for what its worth it doesnt irritate my eyes....and the fluidity has a nice feeling on ur eyes...but thats EXACTLY what the problem its...good depuffing eye creams r supposed to help the fluid under ur eyes "drain out"...instead since this gel/waterish substance "drains into" ur skin encouraging more fluid retention-.-...i find that IRONIC...:P i woke up in the morning after applying this to find my eyes actually having newly formed wrinkles under my bags b/c my bags puffed up so much overnight,..and no this is not b/c i slept late/stress etc....-.-...it was the biotherm hmm wait i thought abt something good...if u wear under eye makeup then i guess u can use this...itll balance out the drying effect so ur eyes wont be as puffy:)
haha i actually really like this despite the clumps..but thats only if ur overambitious when applying ur first coat...if u have patience and apply layer by layer u get an overall awesome fx...its not like this stuff constantly flakes off during the day and i like its "fake lashes" look cus im azn with short light lashes-.-...if u have thick lashes maybe u dont need something this thick and dark:P
ahh first thought...mmm heavenly smell...second thought...SAND on skin...i dont think this will be good on anyones skin long term basis:(' but ya i LUV the smell and the price .....other than that its too harsh:( as for buy again its more of a maybe if im bored ill buy again:P
I like to give it 4.5 overall:P...and 3.5 for price haha...but yes this is another one of my fav products :D personally i think its the best clarins oil outta the three even though my skin get oily sometimes:P hmm this stuff is too potent and i tend to waste alot esp with the jar-.- i wish there was a way to use this sorta pricey product economically...maybe dilute this with some other cream.oil (but im lazy) lastly...use this stuff a couple days in a row...the results will "build"....hmmm o ya i dont think this is too good for the summer as skin tends to get "sticky",,,perfect for winter/canada skin.
My FAVORITE mask so far ..! i cant say HG for anything cus i like variety but this is definitely it:P i generally use it as a nighttime moisturizer cus its such a waste to leave this heavenly stuff on for 10 minutes and rinse it off-.-... not only does it moisturize better then any non-oil ive used...but skin is toned, calmed and firmed....no irritations, no breakouts watsoever...and this makes a good "base" by base i mean something u can mix other stuff into...if u have acne u can mix this with some antiacne cream to avoiding drying but still reaping the fx ...u can even mix it with skin oils...everything goes..i generally do this for other moisturizers too but this ones nice and thick but not clogging at the same time....ahhh i can go on and on.... and lastly....its SO dirt CHEAP...around 10cdn:) buy this, buy it.
errrrmmm i dont think this actually *does* anything...if i rated this earlier before some of my other masks that actually do something (i could literally see the gunk coming outta my pores)...then it wouldve gotten a 4 maybe...but its nice to put on and sorta smells like toothpaste but in a nice way:).... this stuff makes even oily skin dry like craaazyy, i don't recommend leaving it on for too long and the "clay" is sorta hard to get off (my skin is still green after washing it off-.-) i know its dirt cheap and ppl tend to buy when they see these MUA reviews (like me:P) but if ur product doesnt anything then its just a waste of money...my philosophy is quality over quantity-.-
Hmmm...its not really good for spot treatment (ex. if u have a big zit u wanna get rid of, this doesnt do much:() This product is more meant for overall use over your skin...i mixed it with some moisturizer and the next morning...BIG difference....cus i usually have big clogged with sebum pores><...i noticed over one night my pores shrunk substantially and my skin was well toned.... i think its a waste applying this stuff 100% cus u only need a bit of it...and it also tends to "flake off" if u rub ur skin><...one lippie off but ya...this is good for ppl with *constantly* clogged pores:)
