Very nice and live up to its non-acnegenic claims~! Unlike other foundations and BB creams that I've used before, causes acne at the end of the day. Need to use cleansing oil to totally remove every bit of makeup. If not the residue would cause clogging and hence acne. Its coverage is great for those with mild-heavy scars but there is risk of looking like wearing a mask. Light hand is needed.
I really like the texture of this foundation. Very smooth and easily glides on. Very convenient and handy, great for traveling. Despite wearing for 8 hours, my face does not get oily. Its great for covering severe acne scars (mine is severe due to sensitive, acne-prone and oily skin). The only grip I have is the color. Its a bit too yellow if put on too thickly, which I do sometimes. I think the SA purposely chosen this color due to my skin redness and scars =(. Once my skin gets better, I will get another lighter color! ^^

unlike the Ettusais makeup remover and soap bar, this was a huge disappointment to me........my skin doesn't like it~! coverage light to medium.....too yellow on me Even with its Ettusais makeup remover, it can't be removed properly with double cleansing. I need to triple cleansing and a swipe of toner to totally remove it....this irritated my acne-now sensitive skin........

HG stuff~!! non so oily consistency and effectively remove heavy duty makeup like revlon's colorstay foundation. The SA told me to use on dry hand and face with gentle strokes on face. leave it on for 30 seconds and wash it off with cold or warm water. there is no oily residues left at all~! really loving it XD Ingredients: water, PEG-8 Glyceryl Isostearate, Cyclomethicone, Cetyl Ethythexanoate, Butylene Glycol, Dipropylene Glycol, Alcohol, PEG-8 Sodium Citrate, Triclocarban, Citric Acid, Isostearyl Alcohol, BHT, Xylitol, Disodium EDTA, Glyerin, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil.
Use my mom's. LOL. I didn't like the packaging. Prefer if it had pump out dispenser rather than pouring it out on hand. The first few days, it didn't really do much for my skin. A week later I noticed my right side of the face became dryer. I persisted and 2nd week, acne, whitehead and blackhead come out. Happened on left too, but not much. Stopped using, left side cleared but right side remain that way. Had to use ettusais soap face wash to reduce acne.
Another love-hate relationship product. I like the mouse texture on my skin, its easy to spread out. It smooths out on my skin and somewhat blurred my redness and post acne scars. Slightly brighten it up too. Controls oil real well. But, after 2-3 days of usage, small bumps appear. So I stop for awhile and test it out a week later. Again small bumps appear =(

I have a love hate relationship with this BB cream. If put on thickly (more than 2 drops), will look very sickly as it has grayish tone to it. A small pea size will be enough but not enough to cover acne or scars. It somewhat did lighten my scars, but acne still pop out once in a while. Its sweat proof but not really oil proof. Nose shines after 1-2 hour, but cheeks will have a dewy look. From where I came from, the weather is hot and humid. Due to the grayish hue, it brightens my skin. Slightly hard to remove. Definitely need double cleansing.
I have huge acne and redness on my right side of the face. While my left side is clear. Bought it and used it on both sides. In 4 days it dried out my acnes pretty well and the redness have gone down a bit leaving a slight brown tone. It is drying (not THAT drying-skin-peeling) but better than most of the acne wash products that I have used before. Funny though, my left side did not dry out at all....just normal compared to the right. usually test whether the product is really drying or not is by smiling. If it feels tight, its dry. A tip that I read from a blogger but I can't remember who. The soap is unhygienic~! Ettusais sells the case that hold the soap but still..... Great product for acne. When I finish the soap, I may buy the Ettusais's Pore Care wash, which is the liquid-bottle version of the soap.
Concealers -Revlon - Age Defying Spa Concealer [DISCONTINUED]

Took quite a bit to "turn-click" the top part to get the product out. Not hygienic either if use the brush the deposit the concealer directly on the skin because can't really wash it. It becomes clumpy if excess concealer remained on the brush. So have to wipe that excess out. Used it on the eye area. Glides on well and it didn't set in on the eye line which is great~! It brightens up the eye~ After 3-4 hours, it oxidizes to a slightly yellow tone. I reckon that meant for eye areas (for me) because when I did tried on scars on the cheeks, it was a big mistake. The scar grew pimples again ==;;;
