I’ve been using this for 8 months now and it has reached HG status.

I do not get cystic acne but little horrible bumps all over my face. I’ve tried a couple of Azelaic acid products in the past and nothing comes close to Finacea - Skinoren (fatty alcohols break me out) and Evologie (not even half as effective). It has done wonders in keeping my skin mostly clear (and has faded a lot of …

Chances are that if you are considering purchasing this, it is because you have sensitive skin and read about how these are the stuff of angel clouds or fairy dusty etc

Good news is that it is definitely softer and less abrasive on the skin than other drug store cottons. That said, if you have extremely sensitive or easily irritated skin like me, it will still irritate if you use a …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Crystal Tomato Supplement by Gromark

I feel compelled to write a review about this as this "miracle" supplement has been hawked to death in Singapore and is widely available at dermatologist clinics. I purchased this because I suffer from freckles, sunspots and melasma and was desperate.

Ridiculously expensive at SGD168 per box, it did absolutely nothing.

Stupid me, I bought 3 boxes because …

This has officially reached HG status for me.

I have a constant battle with dehydrated skin. To make matters worse, my skin is generally sensitive and I have been suffering from a damaged moisture barrier for the past year.

I've been using this morning and night for the last 4 months and am loving it! It does not irritate my skin, intensely hydrates as well as helps in …

Hair - AVEDA - Color Conserve Shampoo & Conditioner

The shampoo was an expensive mistake. The scalp doesn't feel clean after washing and I totally agree with another reviewer that it leaves the hair both oily (as in the hair strands are coated with oil) and dry at the same time. Into the bin it goes!

Update (5th Nov 2016):
1.5 years later I am still loving this. I have strayed a couple of times in this period but have always come back to it. This is the only moisturiser that doesn't irritate or clog my skin.

Everyone I have recommended this to has totally loved it and become a convert!!!

I'll continue to use this amazing product as long as Benton …

I really really hated this - It is thick, sticky and greasy upon application, and made me break out!

Treatments (Eye) - Sulwhasoo - Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Eye Cream

May/10/2015

For references, I have dry milia prone sensitive eyes with some fine lines.

This eye cream has been an absolute Godsend for me. Practically EVERY eye gel or cream I have tried has either not hydrating enough, given me milia or stung my eyes.

This magic in a jar has managed to soften, smoothen, hydrate and plump up my under eye area without giving me any milia even after …
