Powders - FANCL - Cleartune Oil Control Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/13/2009

This fancl cleartune oil control powder is the one product that keeps me looking reasonably like a human being every day. I have very, very oily skin which oils up 20min after putting on makeup, so this really controls oil visibly. The sponge that comes with it is useless; if you used it to put on the powder, your face will turn green (the powder is a bluish-green shade). Use a big face brush …Read more

Loose Powders - Everyday Minerals - Start to Finish Rice Powder - Sunlight

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/27/2008

I have since moved on to Silk Naturals' foundation, but this Start to Finish Rice Powder Sunlight is the one EDM product that i will continue to buy. Its also the only full-sized product that I've used up completely.


I love the rice powder - it is very finely milled, and melds seamlessly into my skin over any foundation or base. The powder imparts a polished finish and …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Aspirin Toner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/07/2008

I wanted to add a salicylic product to my current regimen to deal with the flaking that BP causes, and as I'm happy with my current cleanser, acne treatment product, and moisturizer, I decided that adding a salicylic toner is the way to go.



I googled for the solubility of aspirin, and found that it dissolves at a rate of 1g/100ml water at 37deg celcius. (Please keep …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Galderma - Benzac AC 2.5 (Benzoyl Peroxide Water-Based Gel 2.5%)

Apr/03/2008

NOTE: My acne problem (always present, sometimes better / worse, but never completely gone) spiralled out of control after I stopped taking birth control pills. From a few pimples on the forehead, chin and cheeks while on the pill, it became colonies and clusters of pimples, cysts, pus-filled abcesses on nearly every available skin surface on my face. It does not stop there either - the horrible …Read more

Cleansers - VICHY - Purete Thermale Demaquillant Integral One Step Cleanser 3in1

5.0

Jan/28/2008

I love this. I use this at night to remove makeup and sunscreen, and it does a wonderful job, especially when I'm feeling too tired or lazy to double cleanse.


This removes eye-makeup beautifully - no tugging needed, i just close my eye, swipe the eye area with a cotton pad with a blob of cleanser on it, and everything comes off immediately. I like how handy the tube is - …

Moisturizers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Glycerin

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/23/2008

I'm happy for those who've found their hg moisturizer with glycerin. However I'm with all the other poor souls for whom glycerin didn't work - I must say I'm sort of glad that I'm not the only one with weird skin. Seeing all the initial positive raves, I rushed out and bought a bottle of glycerin to try in various formulations - diluted 10%, 30%, 50%, in tap water …Read more

Mascara - Za - Cutie Curl Mascara- Volume

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/16/2007

*WARNING* Not recommended for sensitive eyes. I bought this mascara because it had received rave reviews on the local forums, plus it was on sale for only SGD$10. I've since consigned it to the dustbin.


PROS: The mascara did volumize my lashes, and the colour was very black. It also gives a lengthening effect.


CONS: This has a terrible tendency to clump …

Moisturizers - NIVEA - Visage Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/14/2007

I finished up the entire pot some months ago and completely forgot about it. And no, I'm not buying this again. I can't say anything for its anti-wrinkle properties, though my husband did comment that my eyes look fresher when I used this. The night cream moisturizes well, it left my skin soft and glowy in the mornings even though it feels very heavy going on; it also left me with a …Read more

Lip Gloss - The Body Shop - Lip Gloss Dot - Bilberry Juice

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/11/2007

I'm pleasantly surprised by this gloss. Its very moisturizing, far more moisturizing than the Vitamin E lipbalm, and the colour was beautiful - a deep, blue-based red which actually looks far better with my warm yellow undertones than conventional warm red lip colours. I'll definitely repurchase if I get to the end of the pot - its the most flattering red i've ever tried. And I …Read more
