Treatments -Shiseido - Bio-Performance Super Corrective Serum

I have very high expectation on it, since there are many hypes about the product. When I applied it on my face for the first time, the first thought stroke me was that :" dont tell me there is actually silica in it." I checked the label and found "silica" right there...Errr, well , yes, silica is widely used in many "wrinkle-filler" products, but what I expected from this SERUM is to improve the aging from the inside instead of fixing my face like fixing the wall crack(like a touch-up!)! Some say the serum is helpful in brighting, which I found why from the ingredient too. It was "Titanium Dioxide", which is used in painting, dyestuff etc and was actually named as the whitest pigment in the world. I am not saying it is not OK to use in cosmetics, on the contrary, it is one of indispensable ingredients in "Sun Blocks".... Again what I am not that happy is that I really do not expect the ingredients used in quick-touch-up-type facial care/cosmetics to be used in a serum that is claimed to be effective in improving the skin condition, not to say its high price tag is supposed to be due to the fact that it can fundamentally tackle the skin problem, not because of the cheap elements that maybe fix the problem temporarily. I will not buy again.
When I decided to purchase a lipstick, I did abundant research online and I was hesitating in choosing YSL rouge volupte , Guerlain kisskiss or Chanel. After with empty hands going out of Sephora, I happened bumped into the Shiseido counter in Macy's. I tried several color and I am so happy I found this ! It is much moisturing than YSL and Chanel and pigmenting is perfect! On top of that, the natual pink stays long enough altho it will not be as gilttering as when you just put it on. The color , the texture and the package ...everything is what I have been looking for. I am quite satisfied with the product and Shiseido did not put my down again.

It did not cause break-out or white head Around my eyes , which is better than many other counter parts.I feel that it might help with the whitening cuz I dont have the dark circle(?) Even i slept very late everyday.but it is creamy so acne-prone ppl have better try some samples first

Treatments -Shiseido - Wrinklelift Retino Science Lotion AA
sagacat 8/11/2009 6:12:00 AM
a new product from the great line of Shiseido, which is meant to be a nutrient toner for aged skin. Innovative ingredients... My skin feels rejuvenated, supple and radiant after applying it on . I sometimes use it as a basis for moisturizer and more often just take it as a serum. I have a combination/oily skin and there is no breakout on me.
I have the intenstive concentrate for stretch marks and the anti-wrinkle serum ....Very unwise investment....waste of my $ n' expectation.

Treatments -Christian Dior - Sculpt 10 Conturing Gel-Emulsion

my fav ! It is to Firm, tighten the chin-throat area . An innovative and sharp-targeted product that wont cause breakout like many other lifting counterparts. It is my 3rd bottle now but it seems to be a bit hard to buy in the local stores in the states.
Moisturizers -Christian Dior - Capture Sculpt 10 Fluid

I have used 2 bottles of it and so far I am very pleased with it. This silky , non-greasy lotion is moisturizing. And I feel it do good in soothing and firming my facial conture. I use it with Sculpt 10 Contouring Gel Emulsion. I love this series !!!
Try the brand when I found the function fits my demand. very light-weighted. I feel my tone is luminated(and may somewat lifted ) after applying it. It is much better than the luxury brands I used to be addicted to... a product beyond my expectation and I ll try the AHA serum that so many ppl recomended .
Well, maybe i expected too much on this expensive and famed product? It does not do well in its work. Nothing better has seen after I used it. Milia appear oftentimes..I:(
One of disappointing products from H2O+, A TOTAL waste of $. I use it as my hand cream now..Imagining paste wax on ur face///
Toners -Mario Badescu - Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater
sagacat 10/9/2007 7:08:00 AM
not bad. I use it as my substitute of H2O+ OASIS MIST, which is the HG mist of mine:) Inexpensive, hydrating, nice feel. Better than thermal mists like Vichy or Avene. And i am trusted in Mario Badescu, an inexpensive but fully "functional" brand!
It is a new item currently only being available in asian market so far(Note: it is not the former "kose wrinkle essense"). I am in my 20's, while the stressful grad school life, working, the dehydrated weather in southern California and my bad sleepin-late habit recently make my skin around eye, nose and lips crease and tired . It salvages me (it was brought by my mom visiting me) ! I was amazed by this non-oily serum and fast result! Even my roomate feels that my skin looks better!..It is expensive but I think it offers what u ve paid for. Besides, It is made of marines , shrimps and crabs actually. that's reason why it is deep"orange" ....innovative and interesting, huh? update: I have used up one bottle while I feel like the result is not as amazing as the beginning..becoming ordinary.hmm .
