Like the other Imperial Herbs masks, this one does a great job at hydrating the skin! It seems to soften my skin alot too (maybe it's the new Lancome Neurowhite stuff that i've been using... not too sure). Like the Mushroom mask, the glow i get from this product doesn't last as long as the Red Ginseng one, but still i'd repurchase for its hydrating powder. Retails at RM9.90 / US$2.80 each.

WHOA!! this mask smells really funky!! :P For a moment i thought i was in one of those Chinese Medical Halls! This mask does a fantastic job at hydrating the skin! My skin feels so plump and soft the next morning! The glow i get from this mask lasts only a few hours though... but still i'd repurchase for its hydrating power! :) My favourite is still the Red Ginseng one! Click on Continue to view pic.
This is DOPE in a bottle!!! :P Just 3 strokes on each cheek + a little blending makes me look so healthy!! I love pairing this with a highlighter (MAC Pearl Sunshine) for a radiant glow. It's a rather fool-proof color, i can wear it with just about any of my other blushers whether peach, pink, or brown, without making me look like a clown. The rose scent is lovely!! Lasts the whole day too!! Would definitely repurchase if i ever run out.
Lip Treatments -The Body Shop - Lip Butter - Passionfruit

This yummy lip butter moisturizes my lips beautifully! Its effective even on nasty chaps! i'll usually put this on before going to bed and wake up with soft, plump lips ;) my boyfriend would even request for this when he has chapped lips! :D will repurchase, but not before trying out other butters :)
This product really delivers! I've had panda eyes for the longest time ever and nothing before this worked for me! i used this religiously twice a day for about 3 months - first result can be seen from week 1 onwards and by the end of the third month, i ain't got no dark circles anymore!! It's lightweight and it sinks right in after i pat it gently. I can put on my makeup a minute later and it doesn't crease or goop up my eye mu. It's amazing, i highly recommend this eye gel for fellow pandas! Will try Diopticreme for fine lines and wrinkles next! :D
Excellent stuff!! This mask makes my face glowy and plump for a good 3 days! No nasty alcohol, plus you can't beat the price either (only RM9.90 / US$2.80). Would definitely repurchase! Click on Continue to view pic.
Treatments -L'Oreal - White Perfect Deep Whitening Double Essence

I'm surprised that nobody reviewed this amazing product yet!! This evens out my skin tone, makes me fairer in just a week plus it did help to keep my freckles under control! this is one of my skin care staples!! :) will keep buying this until they discontinue it! :)
This feels rather greesy on my skin. Though it did not break me out, it did absolutely nothing either. Will not repurchase.
Moisturizers -L'Oreal - L'Oreal White Perfect Triple Whitening Repairing Cream

Wonderful product that works beautifully for me!! Love the non-oily texture and how quickly it sinks into your skin! It never fails to make my face so soft and plump when i wake up in the morning :) the price is perfect too!! will definitely repurchase! :) UPDATE: After using 3 tubs, tiny bumps started appearing on my skin. It does not seem as moisturizing as before too :( i suspect that this is caused by the new formulation as i did not experience this previously. Minused 2 lippies for that. Will not repurchase after i finish my current tub.
I love how matte this leaves my skin!! the white cast from this actually makes me look rather radiant! haha!! can't beat the price either. too bad this only comes in SPF26, which is not enough to keep my freckles under control. i will definitely repurchase if they were to come up with a SPF50 version. Until then, i'm sticking to my Loreal UV Perfect sunblock.
This gave me little bumps on my skin everytime i used it. Not sure what it does too, but i'd have to say that it does feel very good on my skin and i love the scent! :D will not repurchase.
i used this on my freckles for several months and did not see any effect :( it broke me out a little every now and then too. i'm glad to hear that this product works wonderfully for so many people, but it just didn't work for me. will not repurchase.
Treatments -L'Oreal - white perfect triple whitening spot corrector

I used this religiously for 6 months and see no improvement to my freckles. Worse still, i started breaking out from it after awhile. UGH. This thing is NOT cheap as well. I noticed how Loreal always claims the same promises as the Lancome Neurowhite line, but in actual fact, this crap product does not perform even 10% of what the Lancome spot corrector did for me. Ok to be fair, the rest of the White Perfect line works beautifully for me. I guess Loreal screwed this one up. will not repurchase ever, even now that they have repackaged and included a new ingredient (Ellagic Acid... no prizes for guessing why). No thank you... I'm sticking to my Lancome even though this is 5 times cheaper.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Pencil Perfect Automatic Eyeliner
elphinstone 10/22/2007 11:31:00 PM
Loreal screwed this one up - this product smudges the moment i put it on... and i don't even have oily lids to begin with!! Plus, the thing got stuck and refuse to wind up after what, 3 uses?! The only good thing about this? The black's really black so i guess those who love smokey eyes would love this. Will not repurchase.
Like I've mentioned in my review of the non-waterproof version, this is my HG mascara if i want the fake-lash effect. It works beautifully without clumping and i love that they finally released a waterproof version! no more smudges!! YAY!! Would definitely repurchase! :)
