I have curly, dry and damaged hair. I try different products, out of desperation. I’ve found some that help, but sadly this is not one of them. I refer to the Shu Uemura Ultimate Remedy Extreme Restoration Duo Serum. Practical packaging (note that this comes in a small bottle though) and the duo-serum concept is pretty good marketing, but those are about the only positive things I can say about this. First of all, it actually makes my hair drier than it already was after use. Yes, there is a temporary softening effect, but this does not last (typical of most serums that are heavy on silicones). At the end of the day, the hair is sadly worse off. Two, the scent is simply too overpowering. Yes, it has a perfume scent that even I can like in certain contexts. But to wear daily at the office, it’s just so offensively strong. And the two issues are probably related. Something so synthetically fragranced cannot really be that good on the hair. Sorry for the bad review. Just an honest opinion.

I gave into all the hype and purchased this curler. I have no regrets! This is the best, I have small almond shaped eyes, and this works great and curls every single lash. My problem that I had before this curler came into my life is that my lashes would not hold a curl, that problem is solved now with this curler, I also use waterproof mascara as a base coat and then go in with any other mascara. It comes with one replacement rubber insert. I have tried other eye lash curlers but I always come back to this one. I have owned mine for about 5 years and it still works as if it was new.

My first rinse off cleansing oil. I tried many cleansing oils, but this one works best.Pros:- removes my sunscreen beautifully in one pump - removes layers of full coverage foundations (2 pumps)- pleasant smell (for my nose) so I'm happily massaging my face and doing my night routine- does not cause breakouts - I don't need to swipe repeatedly and risk my face from irritation with cotton sheet to remove heavy makeup- rinses off beautifully with lukewarm water (followed with gentle cleanser afterwards)Cons:- $$$$ PRICE (I've tried and experimenting with cheaper cleansing oil from k-beauty & biore with no luck)

This is the first brow pencil I've ever owned. I naturally have very thick brows that I've been growing out after having them threaded for many many years. I wanted to get a pencil during the growing out stage to fill in the areas that are patchier and make them look a bit more neat.I was really unsure of what color to buy. There are very few swatches online, and many colors I couldn't find swatches for. I dye my hair blonde but have naturally light to medium brown hair, and Seal Brown ended up working reasonably well, although a touch lighter probably would be better.The product itself is so.strange. While I haven't used a brow pencil before, I've watched people using one plenty of times and I know how it usually looks to apply it. With this pencil I didn't feel like I was seeing any color transferring until I moved my head further away from the mirror, and lo and behold the patchy area was fuller. As other reviewers have said, you're not supposed to draw on little hairs like you might with other pencils. You're sort of drawing on the hair rather than drawing on the skin. The technique I saw in a video demo that I have been using is to hold the pencil as flat as is comfortable against my brow and sort of drag the pencil across the area I want to fill in in short strokes.The thing I like best about this product is it looks so natural that I don't have to do my entire brow. The penciled-in parts blend in completely with the rest. So if you, like me, have bushy brows with sparse patches you want to fill in, this is a great option. I was really self conscious about using a pencil on my eyebrows since it wouldn't take much for me to take these eyebrows into ludicrously bushy, distinguished English stage actor territory. But I have been quite happy with how it's turned out and that I can use a light hand.By the way, apparently when you buy the pencil it's normally sharpened like the pic on MUA - supposedly like a samurai sword, and apparently this is important enough that people actually take their pencils to Shu Uemura counters to have it sharpened like this when it becomes dull. For the record, my pencil did not come sharpened like this. It was sharpened like a regular pencil (and yes I purchased it from a very reputable place, not a fake). I'm not sure what the difference is supposed to be really, but I haven't had any issues using my pencil.

Another really good cleansing oil from Shu Uemura! Not my favourite one of them all (my go-to is the Porefinist/pink one), but a very good oil. It effectively removes makeup and cleanses my skin. It is thicker than the porefinist version, and with a slightly more noticeable scent. It is on the stronger side, and I dare say, a bit too strong for me to use everyday (it may have dried me out a bit when I tried using it daily). I also was hoping to see a brightening effect, but I’m not sure I did... my skin is quite fair though so I don’t normally notice any brightening effects. I think I will use this a couple of times a week at nighttime.
