Treatments (Eye) -La Prairie - Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Lift Cream

I've used up the whole jar but i really could not notice any difference. The texture of the cream is nice but that is the only good thing. For that price, simply doesnt worth it.
I obtained a sample a couple months ago but did not use it as I have acne prone skin and I’m afraid that the cream will break me out. However, last month I needed to take a long-haul flight and I brought this cream on board and tried. To my amazement, this cream, though very thick in texture, is quick to be absorbed and leaves no oily residue on my face at all. What’s more, it effectively helped my skin to fight against the extremely dry condition on the plane. I put this cream on top of the Estee Lauder hydrating serum and it could help retain the moisture. My skin did not feel tight for the whole flight. This is the first product that I find moisturizing enough to use on plane. Recently, I have taken laser facial treatment and my skin just becomes dry as a result. And I also find this cream can clam and nourish my skin effectively. Another big plus of this cream is that it doesn’t break me out. I think I will purchase this cream after I use up my L’ocitane Very Precious Cream.
I've high expectation on this product. But the higher the expectation, the bigger the disappointment. 1) IS Clinical claims that this serum is anti-acne. But after having using the serum religiously for 2 months, I still have acnes as usual. 2) There is NO improvement in my skin texture, skin tone or whatsoever. 3) I'm bit concerned about the high alcohol content in the serum. Though IS Clinical states in its website that the SD alcohol it used is not harmful/drying to skin (Really?), I still have doubt. And because of the high alcohol level, the product will be gone quickly once you put it on your face (well, either it is really absorbed by the skin or just evaporates into air, I really dont know.), so you actually need to use quite a lot serum for the whole face. Verdict: Another over-priced product that cannot deliver results. I find PTR AHA10% gel can do a much better job at a much lower price.
Treatments -Trilogy - Age Proof Nutrient Plus Firming Serum

This is a plesant, lightweight serum that can be absorbed well. It leaves your skin soft, matt and most importantly it doesnt clog my pores as my skin is prone to acne. I usually use it together with the rosehip oil (all-time favourite) and the ultra hydrating cream and get good results, and I wake up the next morning with soft skin. Like other Trilogy products, this serum is gentle and pleasant to use. Recommended.
I love the concept of oxygen but this just breaks me out. So, i guess it is not the right one for me. Also, i find it too sticky, not very pleasant consistency.
This clay is quite good and I find it better than the clay powder mask of Organic Pharmacy which is way tooooo expensive but delivers much less. This mask can draw out the blackheads from my nose quite well and my face looks brighter every time after i use it. And I also use it an a rescue mask whenever I have serious acnes. The only thing I dont like is that I need to mix up it with water to make a paste, and I wish this mask is a ready-to-use one. I also use the steam bath but I am not sure if this step is really necessary or helpful. Anyway, I recommend this mask for those with congested skin.
Treatments (Eye) -Sisley - Sisleya Eye and Lip Contour Cream

I have finished two jars of this product already and i generally find that it did quite a good job to reduce the fine lines around my eyes. However, it did not have any positive effect my dark circle and puffy eyes. I have already switched to Neostrata bionic eye cream which is much cheaper and good at reducing the fine lines as well.
I had used this product some times ago. Well, apart from its very nice scent and creamy texture, i dont find it special at all. my skin feels so greasy minutes after i applied it, fortunately it did not cause me any breakout. Just another mediocre product from Sisley. i liked the fact that the bottle could last several months though.
I really like this toner and indeed one of the best I've used. It does make my skin supple and calm. However, I dont think I will repurchase it considering its high price. Also, i notice that they just give you more parabens than other beneficial ingredients (as in all other Kiehls toners and products), it just doesnt justify the expensive price.
I regret buying this expensive (the most expensive one I've ever bought) toner coz I did not carefully read the ingredient list first. Though this product is called parsley seed anti oxidant toner, but parsley seed is the last ingredient on the list and that is VERY misleading. Well, this toner is not bad in terms of its scent and consistency, but nothing special other than that and such definitely do not justify its expensive price. I think in general Aespo overprice all its products (at least in Hong Kong) and I'm afraid I will not repurchase from this brand.
In the beginning, I was hesitated to use this cleanser because of its creamy texture which I thought could not thoroughly cleanse my face or it would make my combination skin oilier. I was just used to foam. But I am wrong. This cleanser is very gentle, but yet it can clean all the dirt and oil from your without drying nor leaving my face greasy. Instead, I think it just add back moisture to my face. Due to its creamy texture, I can also use it to do some message on my face before rinsing it off, and I just feel like having a facial. I just enjoy using this heavenly scented cleanser very much and I highly recommend it.
This mask is the best I've ever used and it has already replaced Avene Soothing Mask as my HG. This mask is with a creamy texture which I like very very much and it is easy to appy with its tube packaging. Also, the scent is very pleasant. As advised by the SA, before applying the mask, I would also message a few drops of its rosehip oil on my face first. Every time after putting on the mask, I would wake up with dewy, radiant, great looking skin the following morning. Another big plus, this mask never breaks out though I have combination skin and it is prone to acnes. Neither does it make your skin oily. I also use Trilogy cream cleanser, another brillant product from the line. It leaves your skin super soft and beautiful. I will definitely repurchase these 2 products which are reasonably priced in Hong Kong. UPDATE: I still like this product very very much. But now, i dont use it as a mask anymore. Instead i use it as a night cream. (Indeed, Trilogy has already changed the product name as ultra hydrating cream as they find out that more customers prefer to use it as a night moisturizer, and I do understand why now). After using it as a night moisturizer, my skin look healthier and more radiant, and it is just a waste if you rinse it off after 10 minutes.
