I have combination oily skin. I find that it sets nicely after baking and fairly buildable, but that lasted for only a few hours top. the oil control is poor and i need to blot every few hours even if i stay in air-conditioned room. the powder also oxidizes and my skin appear one tone duller (i have experimented on different foundations). it also does not add any glow to skin or help in reducing …Read more

my HG concealer! so deeply in love with it! i have dark circles so dark that everyone would think i never sleep for a year should i go without covering them.
i blot a little bit under my eyes and use my finger to dab it evenly and voila! no dark circles anymore!
i use a primer underneath and it lasts all day. but i remember skipping the primer before and still the concealer …

wait what? mattifying?

this is anything but mattifying. just a thin film on your face and you will look like a grease ball.

i have skin so dry that it peels as i am on oral retinoids. my dermatologist give me a sample of this sunscreen and told me that this sunscreen is oily thus it is suitable for skin as dry as mine.
nevertheless, i still look so oily and shiny after …

i have very dry skin as i am on oral retinoids.
i have been using this on alternate day for a few months. i lather quite a thick layer on my face and leave it for half an hour each time. it doesn't give me the feeling that my skin is crazily absorbing the moisture out of this product, nor do i feel any difference to my skin after i wash it off. but after these few months, my skin does …

i have dry skin as i am on oral retinoid. i use it after biotherm aquasource deep serum every night. one pump is enough for whole face. it is absorbed quite well into the skin after a while so there is no worry about dirtying the pillow. the next day, i feel my skin is more refreshed, hydrated and supple. i would say this product is really quite good, but not HG.

i bought this as i have dry skin as i am on oral retinoids. the texture is thick and has very light scent. it leaves the skin greasy and shiny (not in a good way) and stays afloat on the skin. thus, i apply only a very thin film otherwise i'll feel as if i have thick products lying on my face.

in terms of moisturizing property, i think it performs quite well. however, i will …

i have very dry skin as i am on oral retinoid. i follow this with biotherm aquasource moisturizer. i find it quite good as a serum as my skin now does look well hydrated and supple. i can't really feel my skin absorbing it, nor do i feel fresh after i apply it, but after using it for few weeks, the skin does appear to be more hydrated and healthier than before.

if you have dry …

i have acne prone, very sensitive and irritable skin and i am on oral retinoid thus my skin is very very dry. i bought this initially as reviews claim that it is effective in cleaning.

I do agree that it is quite good in cleaning, but it can be a little harsh and drying on my already dry/sensitive skin so i use it once in every few days (i have another cleanser: non-soap benzoyl …

i bought this hoping to have a gentle toner for my acne prone skin during the midst of an outbreak. besides, i was on oral retinoid thus my skin was so dry that it peeled. my dermatologist asked me not to use any harsh products and to use hydrating agents instead of moisturizing. this toner ticks all the criteria.

i find this toner very refreshing and hydrating. it does not irritate …
