Moisturizers - DHC - Olive Virgin Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/28/2008

I use an oil cleanser everyday to take off my makeup. I moisturize twice daily with jojoba oil and aloe vera gel. I use oil with my conditioner to make my hair shiny and soft. It'd be pretty safe to say I don't shy away from oils. But I've got to say even I'm impressed with this product.


I've used extra virgin olive oil in the past: in my hair, as a …

BB Cream - BRTC - Perfect Blemish Balm

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/02/2008

Background: BB creams (also known as blemish balms) started off as after-treatment balms for patients who underwent laser surgery. Because they helped regenerate damaged skin and provided protection, BB creams became a natural alternative to pore-clogging liquid foundations, and South Korean cosmetics companies became the first to make BB creams available to a wider market. …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - shu uemura - Eyelash Curler

5.0

Jan/02/2008

Because I'm Asian and have short, straight lashes, a good eyelash curler is a must. This eyelash curler curls my eyelashes really quickly and painlessly, and it fits my eye better than other curlers I've tried

Lotions/ Creams - The Body Shop - Pink Grapefruit Body Butter

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/02/2008

I absolutely adore the pink grapefruit line at TBS - it smells absolutely heavenly! In terms of quality, the pink grapefruit body butter is pretty much like all the other body butters - it moisturizes really well and leaves my skin soft and supple. Because the pink grapefruit body butter is a tad lighter than the other TBS body butters (which is better for me since I live in a place that's …Read more

Lip Gloss - Dior - Addict Ultra Gloss Reflect- Jersey Pink 157

Jan/02/2008

Great lip gloss and great color - it's an iridescent cool pink, which looks great on my pale skin. It's non-sticky and long-lasting, and it goes on very smoothly (no grittiness). This comes in a brush, rather than a sponge - it really doesn't make much of a difference, and the packaging is really cute.

This makes my lips look really full, but for that reason …

Lip Treatments - Smith's Rosebud Salve - Rosebud Salve

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/02/2008

Decent product, horrible packaging. I personally really dislike the rose fragrance. It comes in an unhygienic pot, so if the top falls off, I get tons of dirt and debris in it. It melts easily, which makes it unsuitable to put in my bag if I don't want a sticky, rose-fragranced mess. I suppose it's all right to moisturize the lips, but it's really nothing special - Vaseline …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Vaseline - Pure Petroleum Jelly

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/02/2008

Vaseline has been a staple in my home for as long as I can remember - I've used it all my life for chapped lips, and I actually prefer it to lip balms, though I've recently learned that petroleum jelly technically doesn't have any moisturizing properties. More recently, I've taken to applying Vaseline to my eye area at night after I put on eye cream - it helps lock in …Read more

Cleansers - Basis - Basis Cleaner Clean Face Wash

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/02/2008

Pretty blah product - it cleans decently but leaves a strange film afterwards, which I have to wash off with another cleanser. I used this for about 2 months - it didn't break me out, but I consistently used an additional cleanser afterwards, which makes this cleanser a waste of money. I prefer a cleanser that foams more, so this face wash just isn't what I'm looking for.

Other - Unlisted Brand - Braun Epilator

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/02/2008

Great at removing hair on the legs, arms, and underarms and saves a ton of money on waxing (which is the only other way I'd remove arm hair). Though I suppose the pain depends mostly on an individual's pain tolerance, it doesn't bother me at all...it's even somewhat refreshing. The little light on the epilator lights up the area about to be epilated, which makes it a lot …Read more

Tools - SHISEIDO - The Skincare Cleansing Massage Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/31/2007

At first, I was a bit reluctant to spend so much money on a tool I felt was unnecessary. I've been using this with the Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Cleansing Foam for about three months now, and my skin looks a lot better - I don't get any pimples and my skin glows. It doesn't exfoliate much (because the bristles are much too soft), but it's really a great cleansing …Read more
