I love this. I have not seen my skin improve so much for the longest time. I've tried many other stuff, but this has worked the best so far. It's my 3rd day of usage and I can see my face glowing. I was skepitical at first cos I've got sensitive skin to start with. And I tried SKII moisturizer before, but it gave me bumps. So I gave up on SKII altogether. But they advertised this treatment essence so hard that it really got my attention, and I eventually got a sample to try. Glad to know at least something from them works for my skin. And yes I'll definately be buying a bottle once my sample runs out.
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - Renew Rosehip Foaming Facial Cleanser 150ml

I tried this because I used the oil and it worked for me. I was quite skeptical about the cleanser at first because it was quite cheap. (Below AU$20, bought online from some Australian pharmacy). And this proves me wrong that cheap product can be good. The packaging can be friendlier because of the consistency of the cleanser, it just flows out from the tube. Surprisingly it cleans well and hasn't broke me out nor irritate my sensitive skin. It's overall a great product for the price, but I rated it 4 instead of 5 because of the fragrance. It's bearable but not exactly my favorite.
Masks -Chanel - Masque Destressant eclat anti-fatigue gel mask

I'm quite fan of chanel skin care, although many people have mentioned their products are over-rated. But at least they haven't broke me out so far. However, this particular one is disappointing. Packaging and the texture of mask looks impressive. Unfortuantely it doesn't work as well as it looks. There is an overwhelming stench of alcohol upon application. And after tissuing (and washing off, since I tried both ways), it didn't seem to do anything.... at all! I hate to say this 'dun waste your money on this product'.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Renew 100% Organic Rosehip Oil

I got it because rosehip oil is known to help heal scars better. And it really does! I've heard of this brand from Australia, but didn't really think much of it before. I actually got it for insect bites on my body. But when I finally tried on my face, I was amazed how well it works. My pimple scar that usually takes weeks & months to go away, diminished in days.
Cashmere silk is my fav formula. It works best for me among all the others. Nice natural matte finish with no skin irritations. With the price they are offering, I'll definately repurchase again and again.
Powder -Everyday Minerals - Pressed Powder in Fairly Light Golden

I like EVM's loose mineral powder better. This one is alright on my sensitive skin, but the color is not right on me, it's too light. And the packaging is sloppy. They have nice plastic containers for the loose powder, but what happened to this one!? I couldn't get the cover back on properly after the first time I opened it. I'll not repurchase the pressed powder, but I'll go for the loose powder instead. Edit: After giving a 2nd try, the colors actually looks better after a while. It looks fair at first but after a while there's a nice natural coverage. EVM really needs to work on the packaging. Otherwise this is a really good product.
Nice! I like clay/ cream textured mask rather than the gel-like ones, so this is what I'm looking for. This is probably the first product I've used from this brand, and I'm so glad it didn't irritate my skin. My skin feels refreshed after using it for the first time. I think it does a good job of purifying as promised.
Masks -Dermalogica - MultiVitamin Power Recovery Masque

I have sensitive skin so I got this in sample size to try. I really like the texture and fragrance, but somehow this product didn't suit my skin. Unfortunately, I had minor outbreak from it. I'm sure it was from this cos I tried it again and had the same reaction. I used some of their products before to help calm my skin when I had bad outbreak then, and it did work for a while. So I had a lot of faith in this brand. But lately, their stuff just don't work for me as well as they did before.
I've been using it for months now, every fortnightly (since it's recommended no morethan once a week). The first time I used it, my face felt like it was burning. However, it left my face really smooth. It did a very good job of exfoliating as it says. I like how it left my face feeling so I continued using anyway, and consequently it doesn't feel as "hot" as the first time. It's quite pricey, but i feel worth the money.
Treatments -Chanel - MICRO SOLUTIONS-Refining Peel Program
wen05 6/15/2007 2:50:00 AM
I've been using this product for 5 days alrdy. So far I feel it's been the most effective peeling product I've used. I've got sensitive skin with pigmentation, and been looking for a product which actually have "peeling" effect. And the best part is it did not dry out my skin as I expected (which usually happens for this type of treatment). In fact after applying the solution, it felt thick and greasy for abt 15-30 mins, so i din apply any moisturizer until the next morning. Well i still have another 16-7 days to finish the set. Hopefully it wl continue to be as effective. I also want to add that the packaging, like another reviewer mentioned, needs to be more user friendly. Update: I gave up on it after a while cos it din seem to work, my pigmentations didn't get noticeably lighter. Maybe I wasn't patient enough. So I'll just keep looking.
