Love it! It is a make-up remover and cleaner in one. It will def. do the job of cleaning all the dirt and make-up off your face. Feels great afterwards and no need to use any other separate cleansers! The packaging is nothing special and the price is moderate compared to other cleansers but this product really does do what it says it will do. Ultimate cleansing! If you use a waterproof sunscreen, this is the only thing that will take it off without leaving residue or a light film on your face.
Cleansers -Dermalogica - Essential Cleansing Solution

I might buy it again i might not. I am normally used to a foam cleanser but thought i might give this a go for winter. I would not use this in summers. It is very mild and leaves your skin feeling nicely moisturised. None of that dry and stretched feeling you can get from some foam cleansers. Probably good for when you have irritated or sensitive skin. Packaging is average and it doesnt last long!
It is a moisturiser for the colder months. I can't imagine using this in summer which is why i am in the market for a new moisturiser at the moment. I live in Australia so i have summer in December! Anyways i am using this at the moment because it is winter and we don't get the cold cold winters like most areas because we just don't. It does have a distinct smell to it so if you are sensitive to smells this might be a no no. It has a thick texture to it but it does do the job. Tad on the expensive side but it could be worse. Packaging is average at best but it is no fuss. I wear it under the Lancome DNA Shield SPF 50 sunscreen in winter and it keeps the dry patches away!
First of all, i have fair asian skin and i love this product. I am generally not into putting on makeup as i find it annoying and i tend to sweat a lot and i don't like how foundations cake up. I used to use a Clinique foundation which did that and i found it was too heavy for me. This product is an absolute gem! It is a light liquid highlighter. It will not get rid of all your spots and such but if you have a relatively good complexion this product will make you glow! It was almost like a bronzer, although it is too light to be one. I took another reviewers advice below and purchased the #02 Hale and it was perfect for my skin. I agree with her when she says #01 must be very very light because #02 is pretty light even on me. If you want the whole bronzed up look, i would suggest a darker shade and a bronzer on top! I would not recommend it to people with oily skin as it does add a sheen to your face. It is a pretty sheen for people who don't have oily skin but i doubt people battling oily skin would want any sheen on their faces! Thumbs up from me and i would purchase this again for sure!
Highlighters -Guerlain - Les Meteorites Ball Powder Beige Chic 03

Great product! I bought the beige chic because i am Asian and i was told that the mystic looks a little off colour on Asian skin. I am glad i bought this one because it works wonders. It gets rid of blotchiness and evens out the skin tone. I use it with a loose powder and then brush the meteorites over that for a perfect complexion look. I have been told i look glowing and i think it really does make a difference to having not used it. It is a tad expensive but its worth the investment. Plus, they last ages!
A toner will be a toner. But for the price it is pretty good. I use it as part of the 3 step clinique process and i found that i like the toner the most. It just gets rid of the extra dirt that may have stayed on after the initial cleanse. The packaging is simple, but then again clinique has never had much extravagant packaging.I have combination skin and it is oily on the t-zone, i have very few blemishes but when they do pop up, they tend to pop up around the forehead and around my eyebrows (funny that). I started using the 3 step clinique products to reduce the overall oil on my face and it seems to be doing the job. I now have less oily skin and find that i end up being this way for most of the day. I get shiny less often!
Cleansers -Clinique - Liquid Facial Soap Extra Mild
sonyaback 12/2/2006 10:58:00 AM
I am a clinique fan purely because it is affordable and it works. But i expected a lot more from this product. Even tho i bought an extra mild, after using it my skin felt tingly and cool near my eyes. I have relatively sensitive skin and dont like harsh cleansers but i dont think this one is as mild as it says it is. I also noticed that it doesnt give you that squeaky clean feeling after using it and i often had to use it twice to get everything off. Coupled with the toner and the lotion the range isnt too bad.
I havent used this product that many times yet but i can feel it working from the beginning. Like a lot of people say, the smell isnt that pleasant but thats only because i dont like scented skincare. I do believe that my skin has gotten less oilier and thats the important thing!
