Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Cosmetic Skin Solutions Retinol 1.0 Creme

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/04/2016

I've gone through 4 bottles of this and obviously have liked it enough to repurchase.

= Packaging =
Matte, clear pump tube that easily dispenses the proper pea-sized amount per pump. The only aspect I didn't like about the pump is that it is clear or semi-opaque and since I have a window that directly faces my medicine cabinet, I always get paranoid that sunlight will …

My skin (Asian): combo (drier in winter months and as I get older, less and less oily in t-zone). Sun damage on cheeks and prone to redness/discoloration around t-zone area (primarily due to mis-doing a peel at home); a few fine lines beginning to form around inner corner of eyes. Can no longer get away with sleeping in makeup and when i don't take care of my skin, it can look …Read more

Apr/06/2015

Worst nail polish purchase ever.

My Nails: ridged but pretty strong and flexible (I don't really suffer from breakage and I'm pretty healthy when it comes to eating and working out). I keep my nails really short out of habit (played musical instruments for years and I also do a lot of typing). I don't get mani/pedi unless I'm attending a very special event so I …

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/06/2015

Formula: I've been using this or the sister Kose Softymo White Cleansing Oil (whichever is in stock at local NYC Japanese grocery stores) for over 5-6 years now (see below for other oil cleansers I've tried). I find very little difference between the Deep and the White versions in terms of cleansing and (nonexistent) whitening ability. If you look at the ingredient lists, they're …Read more

MY SKIN: combo/dry (winter); combo/oily (summer); prone to breakouts and surface dehydration

TEXTURE: runny, yet thick lotion

PACKAGING: convenient tube with flip-cap; however, due to the runny nature of the fluid, it's easy to spill out too much and waste excess product around the cap's pour-opening
