Love this lipbalm , especially the light and delicious vanilla scent. If you love vanilla scent, you can't miss this lipbalm! I have tried many other lipbalms and think this is one of the best one for moisturizing , soothing and protecting my lip that is proned to cracking especially in dry weather. Also the tube form is so easy to use and I use it alone or underneath lipstick as well a for light natural gloss effect.
I love this toner by Valmont. First of all, it has a crisp, refreshing rose glavier water like smell that delights me when I put it on after cleasing. Secondly, it hydrates my skin with a cooling sensation and prepare my skin for the moisturizer. The brand has a new line called White and Blanc. I think I will try some of the products very soon!
Shave Products -Aveeno - Positively Smooth Shave Gel

I love this shaving gel. It smells comforting with the almond-vanilla scent and the texture is creamy to give a smooth shave. Most importantly, I really do shave less, hair gets thinner and grows slower!
Love this lip lacquer and color! It's just right , not too matt nor glossy. For me, because the color is a little pale on my lip on its own, I use additional pink-beige gloss. It works and contrasts well with smoky eyes for a sultry look!
One of my favorite lip gloss and color !!! I will definately repurchase this! The texture of this is not too oily nor dry.. just right for a sweet,elegantly glossy lip. The color is pink-mauve and it matches extremely well with both colored ( e.g. pink/puple) or smoky (e.g grey) look for me!
I love this shampoo and my hair and scalp feel very healthy afteruse. Although the spicy smell is not too nice, you will get used to it! It helps with my oily scalps and I use it with the Aveda's pure abundance shampoo, leaving my fine hair naturally voluminous and soft!
I really like this volumizing tonic! It works well for my fine hair!
Nothing too special about this product. Brought this initally from my friend's recommendation coz of the marble clay powder which supposedly to be great in exfoliating for supple skin. The product does gives you smoother skin afteruse but i think there are better facial scrubs out there or use home micro-dermabrasion system it works well for me especially blackheads!
Love this fragrance by June Jacobs! Citrusy, floral, vanilla, sweet. If you like orange/citrus type of fragrance you should test it! I get compliments from both women and men from this fragrance =)
I really like the Age fitness line because the olive oil ingredients which is a very good antioxidant for preventive purposes for aging skin. The essence absorbs nicely before applying moisturizer on it! Plus it smells refreshing!
I think is a very attractive and smelling product therefore I bought it initally! When I tried the mask, I didn't think it was that good because is not very hydrating, refreshing nor moisturizing. There are other masks out there that is better than this!
Although I only tried samples of this product, I think it is a very nice essence that absorb quickly and hydrate instantly before you put on your moisturizer. I personally like the clean fragrance of the essence!
Cleansers -Shu Uemura - Cleansing Beauty Oil Balancer

Love this beauty cleanser oil which does an EXCELLENT job in removing make up for BOTH eyes and face ( no extra eye make up remover is needed!)! I have been using this as make up remover as well as facial cleanser for a while now and bought the products because of good reviews from my friends! Depending on the season, I have used different version of the oil. The orange colored oil is more suitable for dry skin in winter, the yellow colored oil is for combination skin while the clear beauty oil is for more oily skin. In addtion to that, there is one green colored with green tea extract for combination skin and I have tried ALL of these great products. I have combination skin and found the orange colored oil is slightly too oily. I like to use the yellow colored one during the winter the clear colored one during the summer time. It will be easier to use cotton pads with the beauty oil( + water) for eye make up especially mascara!! Also, use more water to mix with the beauty oil if you prefer lighter texture of the product and repeat until make up is completely removed. Since I love using beauty oil to remove make up, I have also tried the Origin cleansing oil. It also is a fantastic make up remover, similar to the Shuumera's clear colored one but with mint extract leaving your skin feeling refreshed! Another recommendation is the Shisedo's cleansing oil which has a crisp smell and leave your skin clean and fresh, especially great for summertime use for combination to oily skin!
I love this creamy moisturizing oil by Aveeno. I have normal to combination skin and is one of the best body moisturizer I have ever used ( especially after you get out of the showers, we definately need a light non-greasy formula to replenish our skin natural oil that was lost from the bodywash)! I love the almond scents and my skin absorbs the moisturizer extremely well- nicely, refreshinly without any greasy feeling. The product gives you a balance of hydration and moisturization. However if you prefer thicker, velvety texture type of body cream then this may not be your body lotion. If you don't like the almond scents, Johnson and Johnson( also owned Aveeno)creamy moisturizing oil is an alternative which has similar texture, absorbing effect and a clean, crisp smell. I also love the product! =)
Love the soft texture, cooling sensation (when you first applied on skin) of the mask. In addition, with the soothing honey related ingredients that act as great humectants leave my skin supple after use! I think it is a soothing hyrating mask for relaxation for normal, dry and sensitive skin, especially during the winter dry weather. Afterall the mask does has glycerin as second ingredient and contain small amounts of honey, royal jelly and propolis ( as stated on the package) which believed to have high water binding, anti-inflammatory properties. I don't think this is a mask for exfoliating purposes nor does the package say so.It does have a strong fragrance and can be slightly sticky after application on face (but both will be gone after you wash your face and leave your skin soft!)If your are not accustomed to strong fragrance and sticky texture, you should better check out if you like the smell and feel of the product first before your purchase. Overall I think is one good soothing moisturizing mask and I usually use it after exfoliation! =)
