Not very impress with this primer since I can't feel any differences with or without it. I was expected something that would help smoothing out the skin before putting on foundation but anyway it absorbs pretty quick and my skin didnt react to it. However, I felt that it was way oily for my combo skin in the Summer but good enough for winter. I bought the white tube version :)
I was in love with this color once the BA showed it to me, the sparkly things looked really pretty on my hands and I decided to buy it. Unfortunately, when i tried it on my eyes, it didnt turn out quite well, it's not that soft pink as it seems and I dont think the shimmer is enough. The worst thing is that it makes my eyes looked really tired, it just turned so dull. Hugh disappointment :(
I have this in purple and brown and I love it. As I dont need so much of length, it gives me enough volume that i need. It doesnt clump or smudge. I actually wanted to get the black ones, but everytime i went to the counters, they ran out of them. The price is fair, CAN $30. I also like the tube, though it does not look like other Guerlain's mascara.. I think this one looks prettier.
Treatments -Shiseido - White Lucent Brightening Serum

Just finished the whole tube, it lasted me about 3 months with daily uses morning/evening. I don't see any improvement on the skintone, nor do those dark spots and acne scars I have. I'm quite disappointed coz this product is a bit pricy, it's $700 HKD or $125CAN. I would not recommend this to anyone and wont repurchase it, although for the first two weeks .. my face seemed a bit brighter and then that's about it.
Masks -Shiseido - UV white intensive whitening treatment

This mask comes with 6 pairs of sheet masks and one bottle of the whitening serum. The mask itself is a jelly-type so it won't dry out after a few minutes like most of the mask. The pair of mask (upper and lower part) fits perfectly so no need to worry but then for its whitening effect, i cant see any. It's more like a moisturizing mask to me rather than whitening mask. The serum or the mask also didnt seem to get absorb by the skin. The mask just sit on the skin. I didn't notice any improvement on dark spots or whitening overall after i finished up the box so I wont repurchase and will not recommend you to waste the money on this.
Lotions/ Creams -Sisley - Restorative Fluid Body Cream

I use this body cream after exposure to the sun since it's very very sunny now in where I live. The cream can be a bit greasy if you put it on dry skin, but if you use it right after shower, it sinks in quickly leaving the skin very soft and well-moisturized. The smell is very nice, just like any other Sisley products. This is an amazing product if you are easily to have sunburn, it helps a lot, trust me!
Moisturizers -Sisley - Confort Extreme Night Cream

This is absolutely an amazing product! My face glows immediately after I put this on! So soft and smooth at the same time. At first, i wasnt sure if i should use it coz it's very very rich! One of the richest cream I have. Anyhow, my face does looks like I put some kind of oil on but then the result is just amazing! The BA told me it's suitable for dry skin, but for combo skin like me.. it's best to use in the winter. Love this cream and definately gonna buy again!
This is a very mild and refreshing toner, contains no alcohol (at least I can't feel or smell it). Smells really really nice! It also calms the skin. Wont dry out my skin but it's not moisturizing too much either. Somewhere in the middle. It reminds me of Phytomer coz it also has the same Rose kind of smell but this is definately better one.
I got a sample of this and it took a week for me to finish it up since I only need to apply in the morning. It is an eye cream but it melts right after you put on so it wont leave you with any greasy feeling before you apply your e/s. The good thing is it comes with SPF. I actually quite like it but unfortunately, it's only good for moisturizing but I need something for dark circles.
I got this in POO which is transparent and has shimmer in it. At first, I was surprised that there are just 3 shades to choose from and when the BA told me that this one has shimmer in it, I'm quite interested since not many loose powders come with shimmer. Although it might look like there's lots of shimmers but when I put on the face, it gives sheer and transparent looks. The powder is very fine and the puff is super soft. The powder itself doesnt last very long, i need to re-apply in a short time.
The one i'm using is 101. It's a bit lighter than my normal skintone but the 102 would look too dark so I go with the ligher shade coz the BA said that it makes my face looks brighter instead of darker. I bought it in the Summer so I think it's pretty rich for Summer use coz I can see those lines around my mouth after a few hrs. The coverage is medium as everyone said so although it's a creamy type, it is not as creamy as it seems. The foundation itself is easy to blend and a little is needed. Coz I have oily skin, I dont recommend it to those who have oily skin but I'll see how it works during the winter time.
Cleansers -Shiseido - White lucent brightening cleansing gel
snow_ice 9/17/2006 6:13:00 AM
I'm wondering how come nobody writes a review for this wonderful product? I've been using this for a month now and I really like it. It's very gentle to the skin and it removes all traces of makeup (i've never tried it on my eyes though, coz i use a seperate eye makeup remover). This is very easy to use, just like the cleansing oil, cleansing milk or cleansing cream. Just massage it on dry skin and rinse it off with water and follow by the cleansing foam, my face looks brighter and feels so clean! I'd definately repurchase!
I'm not sure if this is the one I'm using but what i'm using is called "Phyto teint Eclat". Anyway Sisley foundation is great! I was choosing among BB, GA, LM but somehow I ended up with Sisley because my parents said it's good. I'm using Ivory #01 and it matches my skin perfectly! Coverage is medium which gives a natural look. The skin is glowing, the texture is light and not greasy. Easy to blend. The only thing I dont like is the pump.. even the BA also complains about it so hopefully Sisley will come up with a new pump : D
Shampoo -Sisley - SHAMPOO with botanical extracts frequent use
snow_ice 8/13/2006 10:14:00 PM
This shampoo is very gentle and can be used everyday. It improves the hair texture. I used to have damage hair and now it looks very healthy. I use this combining with the conditioner. Smell so lovely as well.
Wow.. this makes my hair so soft and smooth!! It makes me want to touch my hair all the time. My hair was so dry before I started using this and now it looks so shiny and healthy. I usually leave it on for 3-5 mins before I rinse it off. Would definately repurchase!
