Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - HBMIC - EGF Extra Acne/Oily Skin 100mL
karen360 1/10/2013 10:59:00 PM
I purchased the entire skin care line by HBMIC EGF Acne/Oily Skin care system in Korea town and I absolutely love this line. I have acne prone skin and I break out all over my forehead and cheek sometimes. After using this skin care line for a few weeks, my skin condition improved a LOT. They market 6 products in this line: toner, moisturizing lotion, eye cream, serum, essence, and cream. I found that only the toner, lotion, essence, and cream is necessary. (Lotion for day and cream is more moisturizing for night time) The essence is really good and I think that's the product that really helped improve my acne. It supposedly has disinfecting and anti-inflammation effects. The ingredients in this are supposedly natural, so it's good for the skin. Pros: - easy to apply - smells really good - reasonably priced - helped improve acne within a couple of weeks.
Treatments (Eye) -BeneFit Cosmetics - It's Potent!

It honestly didn't do anything for me. I got a small sample of it and I tried it a couple of times and I see no difference at all. It's quite expensive too.
One of my favorite highlighters. It is extremely easy to apply and the results are fabulous. Although a little pricey, the bottle should last for a really long time since each time i only use a really small amount. I really recommend this!
Primer/ Corrector -BeneFit Cosmetics - The Porefessional

Didn't really do anything to improve appearance of my skin. My pores didn't look any smaller after putting on foundation. I don't even know what difference it made. Overall quite disappointed. It is quite expensive too. I really wish this had worked.
Quite disappointed, it did nothing for my skin. It wasn't cheap either. I felt like I was just adding another useless layer of gunk on my face. Didn't like it at all.
Pros: -moisturizing -smells good -refreshing Cons: none It's a really good moisturizing mask and it's quite cheap. I like to put it in the fridge for 10-15 minutes before opening the package and putting the mask on my face. Especially in the summer. A cold mask is so refreshing especially when it's scorching hot outside! Skin is also brighter the next day. But the brightening effect is temporary. Lasts only for a day or two. But since it's not the main purpose of the mask, i think it's just an added bonus. Overall, I really like this mask. I even stocked up 3 boxes of 5 sheet masks last time I went back to Hong Kong.
Pros: - really effective the first 2-3 months of use - acne diminished in size over night Cons: - skin got used to it and it got less effective - quite expensive for such a small bottle
Eye Makeup Remover -Quo - Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover

Honestly not the best make up remover. It takes at least a few swipes with some pressure to remove daily eyeliner and mascara. If I wear heavier make up, it takes even longer and more rubbing. Careful not to get this product in the eye, as the previous user review said, it burns a little and it clouds my vision for a good couple of hours.
Overall and okay mascara Pros: - doesn't smear or smudge on eyelid or under the eyes - i quite like the wand applicator - reasonably priced - makes lashes darker and it appears thicker. Cons: - doesn't really make the lashes longer though, only looks thicker. Compared to other drug store mascaras though, I think this one is quite good.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - All-In-One Makeup Removing Cleansing Wipes
karen360 1/10/2013 10:16:00 PM
Pros: - removes make up fairly well - i like the scent of it Cons: - I feel like it leaves residue on my face afterwards - the packaging could've been better. My wipes dried out before I could finish using them. Overall, an effective make up removing wipe, and fairly inexpensive. It's a pretty good cheap alternative to more expensive MAC wipes and such.
Masks -Borghese - Fango Active Mud for Face and Body

Love this face mask. I use it once a week to help clean out my pores and it works really great! My skin is whiter and glowing right after using it. I really love the scent too. I have acne prone skin and this helped me clear my skin. I highly recommend it to everybody.
Conditioner -LUSH - R&B Revive & Balance Hair Moisturizer
karen360 1/10/2013 10:11:00 PM
I really like this. Quite moisturizing for the hair, and only a small amount is needed for my really long and thick hair. Pros: - moisturizing - helps tame frizzy hair when applied on dry hair - i personally really like the scent - don't need to use a lot - decently priced Cons: - scent might be too strong for some people
LOVE this bronzer. It's got a little bit of shimmer in it, but barely noticeable. Love the packaging as well and the price is fairly decent.
Highlighters -Clinique - Fresh Bloom AllOver Colour - Peony
karen360 1/10/2013 10:00:00 PM
This is my favorite blush of all time. I've tried lots of other blushes but nothing compares to this one. A very good high lighter and blusher in one, the color is very natural and gorgeous. I got a sample of it when I purchased some skin care products and the sample lasted me more than a year. Definitely going to purchase a full size one.
Eye Makeup Remover -Lancome - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover

Really effective make up remover, however it's kind of expensive. I love the scent too for some reason...
