This is a review for TO's 0.2 % retinol. I've been using it for over 6 months now and the results have been great. I have bought this with the aim to clear all active acne, blackheads, reduce the size of my pores and even out my skin tone, as well as for its antiaging properties.
- As far as acne is concerned, my skin is now 99% clear of acne and the size of my pores was …

Excellent product! I've added BHA, Niacinamide and Retinol to my routine in the last year and the results have been fantastic. This is my second Niacinamide product, after trying a local one and it is definitely an upgrade, a guess the Zinc in it helps a lor. Basically, in combination with BHA it cleared all my active acne and in combination with Retinol it reduced the size of my pores and …Read more

Oh, what to start with? In terms of makeup, this product was the best discovery I've ever made. Yes, it is expensive, but it took me almost a year to finish it (and I am using it daily), so it's worth the money! If you are looking for full coverage, matte finish this is not your product, as it offers a natural, light to medium finish, leaving the skin all luminous and fresh looking. I …Read more

This is one of the best lip balms I've used and I did try quite a few. The only minus I can think of is the packaging, as it comes in a jar but I mostly use it in the evening, after I am done with my PM routine, hands clean and all :)
It's a lovely product, it has a nice smell, it feels great on the lips and it does the job, as it is sooo hydrating.

I wanted to love this, but it does not work for my combination skin, unfortunately. I had a break out the very second day I started using this, but I convinced myself to give it a go and try it for a month. Three weeks later, I had to stop. My skin looked worse than ever and it was clear that this was the reason. I guess it is just too thick for my combination skin. On the plus size, its texture …Read more

HG mascara! I am now finishing my second bottle of this and I plan to repurchase it. I wasn't crazy about it at first, but I realised it is still the best I've used so far. I guess there is no such thing as "the perfect mascara" so my struggle to find it stops here.
Diorshow gives both volume and length to my lashes and the effect is quite elegant. It is very easy to …

As my skin is crazy sensitive I was worried I won't be able to use this but I have been using it for 6 months now and so far, so good! I had no irritation whatsoever, didn't feel too oily on the skin and, all in all, I tolerate the product quite well. I know vit C is supposed to be used in the morning, but its texture makes it difficult to apply under foundation, so I use it only in the …Read more

Oh, I can only think of minuses, so here we go:
- I only used it three times and it made me break out
- it's just a tinted moisturizer
- comes in 2 shades only. The light tone matches my fair to medium skin, but must be too dark for lighter skin tones
- this stuff is expensive for what it has to offer!

Perfect for me. I have combination skin with occasional acne. I always had a hell of a time trying to find a moisturizer that hydrates but does not clog the pores or break me out. It's a super gentle product, so great for sensitive, allergic skin. Not sure this would work for bad cases of acne or oily skin though.

Mixed feelings about this one. It's a good cleanser, leaving the face super clean and soft. But it made me break out like crazy and I am still dealing with the cystic acne I got after using this product for a couple of weeks only. Might be a better option for ladies with dry or medium skin.
