irritated my skin and gave me red spots.. this is strange since i never broke out with any oil
I'm almost out of my first bottle and will definitely repurchase it. Here's my story: the first week using it my skin broke out, so I almost put this product on a swap, but for some reason i decided to keep it. A year later I started using it consistently and I didnt break out this time. It makes my dull face look very very glowy and healthy! I cant believe it. When I stopped using it my face became dull and tired again.... I dont think I can leave without it now. It's very very very pricey, but it's worth the $$$ for me.
I love this powder! it makes my face look very luminous and healthy. The powder is very finely milled and never looks cakey on my face. works great with any foundation or by itself. definitely a repurchase. cons: hard to travel with.

This foundation gives a very lovely finish and is good for your skin. It gives little glowy, healthy finish but not greasy. Works great on my combo/dry skin. I love to use this when I have important events or when I go out at night.medium, buildable coverage. doesnt look cakey at all Cons: the lasting power could be better.

very very very good, pretty, and versatile hilighter. lasts forever! cons: the glitters are a bit too big.
good concealer for canceling dark circles. my shade is nw20 which works well against the undereye darkness. good consistency, not too thick of thin. good staying power Cons: may fall into fine lines.
my second go-to blush. Looks supremely flattering and healthy with a bit of sheen on the cheeks. Lasts forever. Good pigmentation Cons: packaging could be a bit messy because it's quite powdery in the pan. the package is not very sturdy (mine the lid comes off).
This is a very thin foundation. I found it work great in winter and summer (better in summer bc of the thin consistency) on my combo/dry skin. Wide shade range. Looks supremely natural as if you have no makeup all. Medium coverage but build-able. very easy to work with. recommended for those who hates the feeling of wearing a foundation. Cons: The package lid could be a bit messy because the foundation is so runny that it leaks out easily.
this is my go-to blush! Love love loveeee! Looks so great on my asian skin. I'm almost out of it and it's super awesome! The blush itself isnt powdery and doesnt make the package messy. gonna be a staple in my collection.

Great for winter! My combo skin always gets flaky around my nose or on my cheeks in the winter, but this moisturizer totally takes care of it. Great product. Cons: No other skin benefits. Packaging a bit unsanitary

Removes all the makeup without leaving the skin tight or dry, but the packaging is a bit unsanitary since you have to dip your finger into it. Also hard to estimate how much product is needed per use, as opposed to the cleasing oil which comes with a pump.
Great for my combo skin. Takes off all the makeup, even waterproof mascaras. Reasonable Price. Doesn't leave skin feel tight or dry. Cons: Stings the eyes.
Treatments -The Body Shop - Vitamin E Moisture Serum

This product is amazing for getting rid of the flakiness or dry skin. It used it for the first time before going to bed and the next morning the flaky skin at my nose and forehea disappears. It also leaves my skin plumped, super soft and looking healthy. However I found the effect quite temporary. But if u r looking for a product to get rid of the dry patches on your face, this is it.
I love this scrub, but not as a daily scrub. I found it too harsh for my skin if I used it everyday (that's why I took 1 lippie off because the word "daily" is kind of misleading) so for me twice a week is optimal. It takes off the residual makeup after my makeup remover and leaves my skin bright and fresh. Recommended for the summer or spring because it could be too drying in the winter. Good product.
