This is a moisturizer for acne prone skin. It keeps skin soft and supple. Even though I stopped using the 3 step system, I continue using this moisturizer as it does not clog up my skin. On winter nights, I apply a thicker layer before going to bed and wake up with soft, supple skin. This is not a heavy moisturizer and more suited for combination and oily skins. Dries well.

This product really cleans off the day including eye make up. It is a light oil, applied to dry make up and turns milky as it cleans the day off. I tried another cream cleanser when I was travelling (as I forgot this) and started to develop whiteheads. As soon as I returned to using this, my skin went back to clear. Pricey but lasts a really long time and I buy the largest bottle available …Read more

This is quite pricey but a little goes a long way. With my combination skin, my make up starts melting around my T zone by lunch time. However, a few dabs of this on my T zone after BB cream and before mineral powder keeps my make up in place for the entire day. This is the best mattifier I have ever used and I have tried many over the years. I will never try another mattifier because this …Read more

One tube lasts a really long time. Coverage is buildable. Does not cause breakouts but I find that I get whiteheads building up on my chin if I do not exfoliate or mask on a weekly basis. Color is not great for Asian skins, as it has a greyish undertone. I look ghostly after application. This can also get quite dry in winter months and I noticed lines around my eyes when it gets cold and dry …Read more

My eyes get quite puffy and this product seems to have diminished my eye bags to some extent - after 1 week of use! The product is runny like water and only one drop is required for each eye. Despite this, I am giving the product 5 stars for price and effectiveness. This works better than many expensive eye creams. I follow this with eye cream to moisturize.

I bought this product to pair with Blemish + Age defense. After a few days, I developed a massive cyst pimple on my chin. I wasnt certain if this was the cause so stopped using for a while. 2 other times, I would develop a massive cyst after a few days of using this. I decided to throw out the entire bottle. This comes in a pump dispenser which is quite weird as the instructions recommend …Read more

I found this product when I was suffering a phase of adult acne. After 1 week, my acne started clearing and this has remained a staple for 1 year. My skin is smoother and acne marks appear to fade quicker too. Great value for money - I bought 7 bottles to get free shipping after my first bottle ran out. Lasts a really long time too. 4 stars as it dries to a sticky finish. I overcome this by …Read more

This is a staple. I suffer from adult acne on my chin. When I first started using this, whiteheads would easily be removed from my chin. Now I use this twice daily to maintain a clear complexion. From time to time, I still suffer from spots but these are small and usually go away. The serum is slightly viscous, making it easy to apply. Absorbs well too. I didnt give it 5 stars due to the …Read more

Great for Asian skins due to yellow undertones. Finish is dewy and moisturizing. This is great because I have acne prone skin but this does not give me acne. However as I have combination skin, this BB cream is more suited for dry winter months. In summer months, it fades by mid day. I use a mattifier over it and mineral powder to set in winter months. Great value for money too and would …Read more
