my makeup remover ran out & so i tried using this to remove makeup.. it seems to work pretty well, & the oily sheen left could be easily washed off via cleansing after that.. i am skeptical on using it as a moisturizer though..
i use honey with aspirin mask once or twice every week. it is amazing how such a cheap product could have such a great effect on skin. my complexion is so much smoother and clearer after using it.
i have been drinking honey almost everyday. spreading on toast and eating it. using it alone as a mask 3-4 time per week. ans using mixing it with aspirin mask. i think honey treats the body and skin gradually. did not see any dramatical effect. but i know its good. so i will continue using it.. (:
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

ive been using this moisturizer for a week or so, & i think this moisturizer might be gradually improving my complexion. being having breakouts recently and it helps to reduce the inflammation, though not entirely removing it. maybe its removing it gradually, not sure though.. i like its texture, it gets easily absorb into my skin and no further breakouts after using it so far. i think there are improvement after using it, but not dramatical though. maybe it requires a longer usage time.. ive read reviews that it make the skin very very soft, however i havent experience it though.. edit: this moisturizer is really good. my complexion has improved very much after using it.. if it continues to do its job, i'll certainly purchase it again.
Toners -Unlisted Brand - Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar

i have been drinking ACV with honey for more than a year. and when i first drank it, i felt that my overall health had improved. however i did not know that it can be used as a toner. will be attempting it today and i really hope it works.. my forehead has been developing rashes and white bumps appear at the bottom of my face.. hopefully it will remove them. edit: it works.. cleared off the rashes and bumps. however its kind of dried my skin very slightly.. wont notice that it is unless i plaster my face up the mirror. maybe i should add more water.. the concentrate that im using is 1 part ACV, 5 parts water.. im using it more to dry my bumps than as a toner.. i find this more effective.

Skincare - Body -Unlisted Brand - Egyptian Magic Healing Cream

i got a sample of this when i purchase some makeup, the SA said that i could use it on my blemish, but i was quite sceptical about it.. so instead i use it on my scars on my legs and hands which i got it from scratches from my dog.. these scars that i have are really dark and they take ages to heal.. like more than a year to lighten. when i apply EM healing cream, i wasnt expecting anything. but after a few days of applying, my scars LIGHTEN! i was so amazed with it. now my scars are not that prominent.. it is more like a blur light brown.. this cream really live up to its name.. it is really like magic! i'm going to get it when i finish with my sample! and this time i gotta try them on my blemish.. (: another thing, i got a cut on my finger recently and i apply just a thin coat of it on the cut.. the next day, the cut practically disappear! edit: i've gotten a tub of it last month and it is still doing its miracle job. i've some serious rashes on my forehead, they are red and burning.. but the EM cream sooths them away. my blemishes and pimples also healed quickly and my face feel soft and moisturised after every night of use.. edit: i have been using this product for a year or less now.. everyday i would apply it at night before sleep, and had so far archieve flawless complexion or just an occasional few pimples popping out.. it has been really good up till now where i experience white bumps at the bottom of my face and my forehead develop some kind of rashes like what happen last time( 1year ago). i am not sure whether its due to the product or some other factors. i noticed that my face develops some kind of problem after a period time of using the same product. it happened to the previous products that i used before. however this product is still doing its job for scar marks.. and moisturising on other areas.. so rating still at 5 for me..
i got this in light pink.. and i do not like it.. it doesnt look good on me..
i think the brush's quality isnt good.. the "feel" of the brush is not good.. not soft enough. mac and shu uemura have better brush. my brush is supposily new, but i've hair dropping off from it already.. not worth the money that i'm paying for it.. ): several of my friends even commented that the texture isnt good.. edit: this is a horrid brush.. the hair on the brush has dropped off to only slightly more than half its original amount by now(7/10/2009)
i've been using this for some time.. but did not notice its benefit until recently i started wearing before my foundation.. i realise it really helps my foundation stay longer and i do not get much of shines on my t-zone when i'm out for long periods of time.. edit: this thing breaks me out.. i dont know why.. /: not using it anymore..
the shade i've got does not match me.. i got the lightest shade as i'm very fair.. but when i went home and i really use it to cover my eyebag.. i realise it has yellow/ orangy tint which make my eye bag even more prominent.. sucha disappointment..
Lip Gloss -Shiseido - MAQuillAGE Diamond Tear Gloss

this is the best gloss i ever have.. really adore it.. it looks so good on me.. love love love it!
i saw the many good reviews on this product. so i went to the counter and tried it on, the SA matched me with soft porcelain, it looked so natural on me and the coverage is pretty decent.. really love it.. but i havent really applied it in full out yet.. so still not entirely sure how it will turn out.. quite scared that it will turn out to be too pale.. but still certainly looking forward to it though.. edit: i've started using it.. it looks so gorgeous on me.. and i realise it makes me look so good on the camera.. but somehow it accentuate my bumps on my forehead which my YB foundation could have covered.. other then that it is fantastic so far..
i've this in yellowish gold and gold glitter.. really nice, intense color and affordable too. however i dont like the packaging.. the sifter wont allow much of the shadows to come out.. so irritating, have to hit the container hard before i get any decent amount of it..
