Feb/12/2011

My HG cleanser, after trying many!!! I just love anything Nuxe, and I'm sticking to this line of product because they are natural and they WORK!!! I tried some Burt's Bees products that are also natural but didn't do the trick for me.
So, the Nuxe Cleanser smells really good, has a nice texture, I don't mind the fact it doesn't foam. Dispenser works just nice, no …

Swiss Formula # 12 Day Creme with Edelweiss

Got this for a steal online. Was always curious to try this line of products as it gets so many mixed reviews and allegedly never lists ingredients!!! [Ingredients are all listed on the box, does contain parabens, different plant extracts, glycerin, etc.]

Packaging, well, just plain plastic jar but no danger of it breaking and it …

I got this for a really good price online, so couldn't resist!!!

Love the pretty deep red tube, very classy!
Smells heavenly, always looking forward to reapply!!!
Don't put on too much if you're going for a 'tint' look. It has some glitters in it which is cute.
I got color 1 - Strawberry, flattering, slightly red tone, looks 'healthy' …

I LOVE this night cream. It's one of the very very few products I purchased again, although the price is indecent (specially here in Korea.)
My skin is really sensitive and this cream really calms it down big time. It goes on smooth, smells fantastic (but the fragrance is not irritating at all,) not too greasy yet moisturizing. And I wake up with a nice rested complexion. I use it …

BB Cream - SKINFOOD - Aloe Sun BB Cream SPF 20 PA+

Love this BB Cream, in shade 2. Shade 1 is too pale for my complexion. It looks pale the first minute or so after application, but it adapts to your skin tone quite fast and doesn't cover too much, just enough. A little bit goes a long way, don't use too much. I put a pea size amount on my hand, rub my hands and spread it evenly on my face. Putting small dots here and there doesn't …Read more

Jan/04/2010

I love Missha skin products, their two way cake foundation is one of my favorites and I keep buying it. This powder is also excellent for touch ups or for a more natural flawless look. Looks great on pictures too.
Does all the good stuff a powder is supposed to do, for a fraction of the price of big brand names. I honestly have to say it gives Chanel pressed powder a serious competition (I …

Jan/04/2010

This powder foundation is my lil secret as it never leaves home and I wouldn't be caught dead using this in public (have to put this in local context: face is everything here and no self-respecting woman will whip out any local brand compact in public, only Chanel, Bobbi Brown or the likes being 'acceptable'!!! )
The official name of the product is: M Prism Two Way Cake …

Jan/04/2010

I live in Korea and this product was all the rage last year. I had to try it. I tried a bit on my cheek in the store and then bought the compact (how can you resist this sliding compact, it's so perfect!) and headed home, where I 'really' tried it...
Well, mmm, how to put it: I looked like a geisha ready to go out for the evening.
Although the pigments in the powder …

Jan/04/2010

I got this as a gift a while ago and thought it was sample size... Ahem... I was surprised when I saw the price and that it was actually the 'real' size of the product!
Color is flattering and nice, smells great (love vanilla smell), so small you can carry it anywhere. Not too sticky, yet shiny.
I would not purchase this given the price/quantity and also packaging that …

Treatments (Eye) - La Roche-Posay - Redermic for Eyes

Created with Sketch.

Jan/04/2010

At first this was OK, but my eyes are really sensitive and it did get to them after a few days. This stuff is really potent!
I bought this in Taiwan, where in general pharmacists/salespeople always try to sell you stuff for women in their 70s (although I'm 30something....) saying it will 'stop aging' and it's overkill! When I asked a Canadian pharmacist, she was surprised …
