This gel does wonders for preventing and eliminating post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. I apply it on blemish areas the moment they scab over (if the wound is still open it will sting and worsen the swelling), and when the skin heals, there's much less hyperpigmentation, and whatever there is fades 2-3x more quickly. My only gripe is with the packaging, the neck of the dispensing tip is so …Read more

HG concealer for blemishes. I get a few hormonal cystic acne zits every month, and those always leave hyperpigmentation marks. This concealer is perfect for covering those spots.

Also agree with other reviewers that this is not for the under eye area. For that I use Lancôme Effacernes, it's excellent.

I absolutely love this palette, and I use it everyday. The shadows are highly pigmented and have good staying power; I can wear them the whole day without my eyes becoming a smudgy mess. The palette contains every shade I need, and is versatile enough that I can use it for both day and night looks, so it's very good for traveling. Satin Sheets is my favorite shade, and I really wish they …Read more

This is my absolute holy grail. I've been struggling with intermittent breakouts and hormonal cystic acne since my early twenties. Tried many treatments with varying degrees of success. My friend recently introduced me to this and I was completely amazed by how effective this is, especially since I've tried another benzoyl peroxide product before (Oxy) with no success. With Benzac AC, I …Read more

This is my HG mask for treating post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (dark spots) from pimples. I usually apply the mask immediately after the pimples have healed, and I find that it does prevent further hyperpigmentation and makes the existing pigmentation fade more quickly. I have gone through about 3 boxes of this mask so far and I really like the results.

When I first bought the …

These patches are amazingly effective. For pimples that have come to a head or are about to pop, I puncture them with a sterile needle, dab away the pus that oozes out (gross, I know), then slap one of these patches on overnight. By the next day the patch will be filled with pus (very satisfying to see) and the pimple would have been flattened by a lot.

For cystic acne (the kind where …

This is an excellent mascara for daily wear. It volumizes and lengthens without clumping, separates my lashes, and never smudges or flakes! I especially like how my lashes remain soft and fluttery after applying this mascara (not stiff / crispy). Removal is easy and mess-free (I use an oil-based makeup remover).

This mask really did what it promised, and more. I bought a pack of 3, hoping to brighten my complexion (it's been looking a bit dull from fatique and sun damage), and possibly fade some persistent discoloration from acne. The pack doesn't say it fades acne scars, but when I asked the MA at the Fancl counter, she said it does. Anyway, this mask acheived both my purposes. I've only …Read more

This product is amazing. Although the texture is matte, this foundation luminizes the skin nonetheless. Once it sets (about 15 mins after application), it produces a beautiful finish which makes my skin look natural but absolutely flawless. I have combination skin, and despite living in the tropics, this foundation lasts the whole day, from 9 am to 9 pm. As I don't need to touch up during …Read more
