I started taking this medication in 1999. Except for a few years off, I have taken it ever since. My current dose is 100mg/day. I never really had a face full of acne and I do not have any scarring, thankfully. However, I had frequent cystic acne and there was always something coming and/or going on my face. I was long past my "acne years" but my skin did not get the memo, even …Read more

I had tried samples of the Protini on my hand from the store tester and thought it seemed very moisturizing but was turned off by the high price. For this reason, I was very excited to receive a deluxe sample of this plus their jelly face wash as a birthday gift from Sephora. The sample I received is enough for me to use for several days, but I have decided after 2 days that it is probably …Read more

This ended up not being what I expected, but I decided that I still like it very much. I was shopping for the best price on Klair's blue chamomile cream to apply to some irritated areas on my face but I cheaped out and ordered this instead. I paid about $10 for it on Amazon. What I received was a large 10.1 oz tub of gel-cream consistency body cream. This is a Korean brand, so I cannot …Read more

I have this in the Brigitte shade, which is a pretty berry color. I have a thing for tinted lip balms, and I find myself reaching for this one often. It deposits a good amount of color on the lips and is reasonably long wearing. It is a bit too bright, so not perfect but still quite nice. Packaging is a sturdy metal tube and quantity seems good. It has a minty scent that doesn't hang …Read more

This is an undereye color corrector. I ordered it online from Sephora for $19. It has a doe-foot applicator and it is a rather large tube (0.19 oz). The formula is thin consistency and peachy-salmon colored. I have pale pink-toned skin and blue/purple under eye circles and I am always on the hunt for the perfect under eye corrector and concealer. This one is not bad. It covers fairly well …Read more

I have a real thing for tinted lip balms and am always trying new ones. I have this in 04 Blackout (black to plum). I ordered it online from Sephora for $14. I think I read somewhere that Kaja is a house brand for them that has Korean-style products. It has a sturdy plastic and metal packaging that should hold up well in a purse. It feels very moisturizing on the lips and the stain lasts a …Read more

These are a staple in my medicine cabinet. I first learned about them from Rio, who writes about skincare and makeup for The Strategist and I am so glad I found them. These are basic hydrocolloid patches that you apply to clean, broken skin overnight. They absorb secretions while you sleep and in the morning the site is smooth, flatter, and less red and irritated so you can cover it with some …Read more

Most perfumes give me a headache, but I received a sample of this in a Sephora Play box several months ago and have been hooked ever since! I prefer fresh, citrus, herbal type scents, and this is perfect. I immediately went online to order it from Sephora and it costs $150! I'm a nurse working in a scent-free environment so I can't justify spending that much for something I can only …Read more

This is a lovely, clear, light serum that really seems to do what it claims. It was relatively cheap -- about $20 for 2 oz and comes in a pump container. I ordered from Soko Glam but last time I checked their site this was out of stock so I am going to have to hunt for another source because I love this product.

I have almost used up this entire bottle! This is saying a lot for me because I am constantly flitting around trying new skincare stuff. I am not sure what is so great about this, but I just think I look so much "better" when I am using it. I think this is TO's most expensive product, but it seems well worth it to me. I use after essence and mixed with Tosowoong green tea …Read more
