Treatments -Ren - Omega 3 Overnight Lipid Renewal Serum

Ren is one of my favorite brand, and I love every product that I've tried. So it was really difficult for me to choose between this one and the rose oil. I ended up buying both, and I found they are quite different though they're both great products. 1. They are both very expensive, but they are definitely worthy every penny u spend on them. 2. Both of them sink very quickly after I put them on my face. I use both on my face and I don't feel oily at all (but my skin is normal to dry). 3. Both of them are wonderful moisturizers, and they don't make me break out. Ok now comes the differences: 1. The rose oil smells much better, but I'm ok with the smell of this oil. (many people hate it tho) 2. My skin is kinda dry and very sensitive, and I have many fine lines around my mouth and a lot of acnes near my hair line. I think this oil helps reducing those lines and healing the acnes. My face is much clear now and the pores are a lot smaller. But if u have good skin and just need a good moisturizer u should go for the rose oil. The rose oil is a better moisturizer and makes my face more radiant. 3. I like the packaging of this oil better since my rose oil tends to spill out. My rose oil is only half full now because of the terrible design of the bottle. I hope this will help :)
Moisturizers -Boscia - Vital Daily Moisture SPF 15

I didn't buy this product, and I got it free from Sephora skincare challenge or something like that, Therefore, I can't really judge its price. I only used it twice and it broke me out. I didn't believe it broke me out and I thought it was supposed to be good for my skin since Boscia was together with Fancl. I read the ingredient today and I found dimethicone, which I'm allergic to. I'm happy for those who like it but I just wanna warn anyone who is like me should be careful with this product.
I don't know if I should call it a piece of expensive crap. Well, it kinda worked and improved my at the beginning. However, once I stopped using it, I got a lot of breakouts. I guess my skin is just too senstive. I use it on my neck and my hand now. A waste of money.
This product has too much alcohol in it so it irritates and dries out my skin. I guess it would work nicely on oily skin. I have normal to dry and a little senstive skin and it doesn't work really well on me.
Mascara -Maybelline - Full 'N Soft Mascara Waterproof

I can't believe I almost forget to review this amazing mascara after using it for 9 months. It doesn't give me too much volume or length, but my lashes just look so nice with it on. I wouldn't recommend it to people who like dramatic effect though since it will just give u very natural and clear lashes.
It does a great job to keep my makeup nice and long lasting. However, I broke out every time I used it. I have to stop using it since I don't wanna ruin my skin.
Cleansers -Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser (Normal to Oily Skin)

This is probably the worst cleanse I have ever used. It doesn't do anything as a "cleanser", and it really irritates my skin. I don't know why it's called "the MOST gentle cleanser in the world' since it burns my face so bad. I wish I could give it 0 lippie.
I don't feel this cleanser has done anything. I don't even wanna use it as a bodywash since it can't clean my skin at all.
I guess I just have no luck with Lancome's products since most of them either fail to work or break me out. This is not a bad scrub, but it's just too harsh for me. My mom and my friend who have normal to oily skin really like it.
Concealers -Make Up For Ever - Full Cover Concealer
chloechan88 8/8/2010 10:32:00 PM
I really like its packaging and coverage, but the formula is way too dry. If I didn't moisterize my undereye area well enough, it dried so bad that I ended up looking like 10 years older. But anyways, I will still buy it since it's a great product.
I had a lot of lashes falling off after I used this crap. Enough to say.
It's a really expensive mask to me but I still keep buying it. I have A LOT acne scares on my cheeks and this is the only product that helps. It doesn't break me out and I notice a huge difference every time after I using it. An amazing product indeed.
I don't know how it works on people who have long and full lashes. But for me, a typical Asian who has very few and short lashes, this eyelash curler really makes a huge difference. It doesn't pinch my eyelid like the Shisheido one does. And it won't give me a wierd curl either (sometimes I would get a funny curl like 90 degree if I used the Shisheido one). I got many compliments on my lashes after I start using this curler. I heard that it was about to leave the United States for good so I really recommend anyone who wanna try it to get one ASAP.
Treatments -Juju Aquamoist - juju cosmetics aquamoist essence

Well, I guess I'm the only one who hates this product. I admit that my skin feels so great when I put it on. However, the problem is, my skin doesn't absort it AT ALL. I washed my face during the morning and I could feel the essence was being washed off. I know probably it's my problem but I don't wanna waste my money on it anymore.
I'm on my second tube now. It's the most expensive mask I have ever used but it works extremely well. I had nonstopping breakouts before, but it improves my skin so much. It's not an acne treatment but it does work like an miracle on acne prone skin. Strongly recommend it!
