My lips have always been dry even I live in the humid tropics. I drink plenty of water. Always. Water is my go to beverage. Vaseline,Badger,SebaMed, EMC, papaw, squalene, HA, nothing works like this one. Everything has to be oily and just sits on top of my lips. Never really absorps into my lips unless I put it on right after I shower. Which is hard to do because that's skincare's …Read more

I...I was rendered speechless.

Look, I didnt even intend to GET this foundation, at all.
My usual HG foundation,GA Maestro,once again mysteriously disappeared from the shelves. I couldnt find my shade literally anywhere. Rather than wasting my money away to other brands, I picked this one out of loyalty, because not once GA ever disappointed me. Still with a lot of doubt for I …

I'm on the fence about this product. It said to be a dupe for EL Advanced Night Repair, on lower price. Since it wont hurt, I gave it a try and I cant say that I'm blown away.
What it is : a slightly thick liquid , without odor. And for the record I dont get why people keep saying it's sticky. It is not, at least for me. Or maybe it's my thirsty skin? The absorption is …

At my age, I should be seeing fine lines around my eyes,forehad, and mouth.

But no. I dont have any of those, thankfully.
I'm on my 6th bottle, and that says a lot. This is another gem from The Ordinary and I seriously love this brand. Matrixyl is a cocktail of peptides and hyaluronic acid to tackle the static and dynamic wrinkles. I dont have any-yet- but prevention is the …

I'm on my 5th bottle and this is THE ONE skincare product I literally cannot live without.
In my mid 30's, my skin is constantly battling whiteheads, photodamage (i live in the tropics) where sun exposure lasts all year round, working indoor with the AC on, so my skin is also dry. I'm active and having small pores make them clogged easily, turn into cystic acnes or whiteheads …

I picked this up at local drugstore out of curiosity for I’ve heard praises for this foundation. I’m NC 25-30, dry skin, and i occasionally get whiteheads here and there but nothing major. I got this in Sand Beige 210, medium shade with yellow/warm undertone.

I have so many questions. Like why does this foundation have no pump or whatever? The texture is okay, as expected from …

Im on the fence with this.

Pros :
1. Generous offer for base colors which tackles the problems with most (if not all) palettes. Value wise, this palette makes a lot sense.
2. Good-to-go palette for almost every look. Natural, work, glam, this palette rocks it.
3. Good for any level makeup expertise. Beginner to pro, this palette got your back.
4. Great price point …

I only get this because I cannot find GA Maestro, and makeupalley said this is the dupe for it. Admittedly, the price is better than GA, but I'd rather have GA than this.

Texture wise, altough both foundations contain silicone, GA is better and it clearly says 'no primer needed'. Diorskin, not so much. Maestro glides and mixes with every other products I put on my face …

Asian, mid 30's, dry skin on U area, slightly oily on T area.


I was having a bad cystic acne case that stormed out of nowhere a while ago. They just popped out on my cheek around jawline and they were such a pain. I could not pop them, and they look awful. After attacking them with topical hydrocortisone and antibacterial ointment, the redness and swelling has subsided, the …

Long overdue review. I am mid 30's, Asian, dry skin on U area with some patches, slightly oily on T area.

I've been using this essence for 4 years, combined with the other products I use for PM skincare: Whoo essences and oil, Paula's Choice 2% BHA, FTE, and various of masks.

I love this essence. I have been experimenting to remove this item from my skincare …
