i LOVE this perfume. I've used this for 3 years and continuing and there is no doubt that it will continue to be my signature scent. It actually smells better when it mixes with my own smell. I had a lot of compliments by men and women. I tried 'experimenting' with other perfumes but I always come back to bvlgari omnia crystalline.
I've been using this product for about a month now, and it's safe to say it is now a staple in my skincare regime. I have really sensitive skin, which by solely washing it too much would irritate. I've tried using the aspirin mask, ddf sulfur mask, sugar mask, yogurt mask, and various scrubs like the st. ives but all of them just irritated my skin greatly. They severely dried out my skin, which we all know is NOT attractive and is unappealing as acne. Then I came across the biological peel on a Korean makeup review blog. All of my skincare products are from Asian companies because I feel like they are less harsh than American/European brands. The blog described this peel as a gentle yet effective peel, which brightens your complexion and gets rid of all the grime and dead skin that might be clogging your pores. And this is the first time a product actually delivered its statement. Of course, too often uses can irritate the skin. I used it 3 times a week for 2 weeks and now use it only 2 times a week. Then I let it repair my skin and calm it down by using EL ANR (brown bottle). <-- this stuff is miracle in a bottle. I love love love love it and would definitely repurchase. try it out!
Initially when I first bought this product, I was suffering from a sudden allergic reaction and acne that came along with it from using a too harsh toner (that had alcohol in it). So I needed more coverage than a sheer coverage from my old foundation. I first used a sample of this and really liked the coverage and shade. Bamboo Beige is the perfect shade for my Asian olive tone. Although the name says "creme," this foundation is actually and liquid foundation, and is not moisturizing enough. It settles in my dry spots. I don't need another concealer but it accentuates my dry spots after a few hours of wear; which is kinda weird because my skin gets oily by then. Anyways, the only reason why I wouldn't repurchase this product is because it rubs off so well, hence making the staying power '0'. Even if I just accidentally swipe my face, the foundation comes off. *It is more important to keep your skin healthy by keeping it clean and well moistuzied and maintaining a good diet. EDIT: this foundation mixed with any long lasting foundation (ie: Double Wear or Double Wear Light) does wonders do my face. I get both Silk Creme's glow and Double Wear's staying power. Perfect!
I have fairly normal skin that suffers from regular problems like slightly oilier in the summer and drier in the winter. Last month, I broke out horribly. It was highly unusual for me since I didnt consider my skin to be sensitive and I wasnt using any different products. (It turned out to be that my cleanser pump was broken and dirty water/shampoo/etc went in the bottle in the shower) Frustrated, I bought the pore refining toner and the first week or so wasnt too bad. It actually helped my t-zone stay matte during the day. But after the 2nd week, my cheeks started to dry out and I started getting rashes and little bumps. Not knowing that the toner was the problem, I continued to use it until my cheeks were RED and raw. I cried that night. I stopped using the toner for 3 days and my skin is calmer and happier. *there's so much alcohol, witch hazel, glycolic acid, salicrylic(?) acid... all in one product.
