I bought this on the strength of the Regenerist cream cleanser which my skin surprisingly loves a lot. Though the texture is nice and sinks in without any residual shine to the face, this cream is something I would not recommend to anyone at all. It is strongly scented which I detest (my country does not sell the product scent-free) and my skin became textured and rough-feeling after I put this …Read more

Cleansers - Bobbi Brown - Makeup Melter & Cleanser

Wonderful gentle yet effective makeup melter. I played around with this product and finally figured it out - your palms and face should be totally dry. Shake the product to activate the melter, take 2 pumps of product, rub on face, cleanse off with water. It removes every single bit of makeup and even waterproof mascara, but you need to take time with sweeping gentle motions of your palms for it …Read more

I was intrigued with the hype and decided to have a go during discount season. I purchased Deep Bronzer as my skin is a NC30-35. After using, I will rate this as just meh to okay. It blends well on the cheeks, temples and neckline but do not like the colour as it is a warm brown (reddish undertones), I prefer a cooler natural colour like Nars Laguna. It also fades by the end of the day. The …Read more

Smooth and glowing immediate results. My pores are actually smaller and "flatter" at trouble areas (nose and forehead). My skin looks plumped with moisture and very healthy. This product stings in the beginning, it does not "tingle". I wear this sparingly as drenching the cotton ball results in a very greasy face. I also do not wear this every night, I am too terrified to do …Read more

I have never used a vitamin C skin product before, this is a first. And what a first! It blends wonderfully with my moisturiser and though it stings to high heavens in the beginning the skin acclimates quickly enough and now, no sting. I love how the website underplays this - they call it "tingling sensation". No, it didn't tingle. It literally stings. Yet I persevered with a scoop …Read more

My usually combo-oily skin transformed overnight due to age (40 next year) and I could no longer tolerate my usual cleanser Liquid Neutrogena - I experienced actual pain due its drying properties. Was looking for a quick buy and a friend recommended this product. It has a headache-inducing scent and I sincerely dislike scent on face products nonetheless I bought it. Lo and behold, my skin loves …Read more

A surprisingly wearable daily lip gloss. I like the no-makeup makeup way to do my face and I wear this often for work - absolutely adore it. As my lips are medium sized and I'm looking at 40yo next year, I notice that the plumpness is diminished somewhat (common aging situation). This lip gloss, worn only in the middle top and bottom of my lips (prepped beforehand with lip balm and …Read more

What is an unexpected joy? When you bought a too-cheap makeup product without testing, on a whim - and it turns out pretty darn wonderful. This lip pencil in Hey Macadamia Ahey is one of those things. It is a perfect nude shade for my skin tone (NC35) and it does not have any warm/pink undertones, just a nude-y prettiness. It is not beige, or a dark brown. It is a cool-toned medium brown (it is …Read more

I received this as a gift. And since my beloved La Mer Soft Lotion is out, I thought why not give this a go. I am also on an all-natural kick and researched the rejuvenating properties of rosehip oil with a lot of excitement. I wear this at night or when at home as it does leave a slightly oily residue on the face it is after all an oil. I use 2 drops for my entire face, and a little bit more …Read more

Easily five stars. I have typical Asian eyes - almond shaped with a slight to almost non-existent double eyelid and flat features aside from my nose (I also have Arab blood and my nose shows it). Before purchasing this, I tried Shiseido as well but I loved how Shu creates a natural looking but dramatic curl without that awful 45 degree angle sharpness (taco lashes, as someone hilariously and …Read more
