Another 'what-everyone-I-know-likes-only-I-don't' product. My picky skin which I can now confirm loathes liquid serums, sheet masks, or essences and concentrates that don't penetrate right in can't negotiate or consider the fact of how expensive this product is for me. (WHYYY, skin?)
Gave it a try for a while. Always, always breaks me out. Breaks my heart even more …

Sep/10/2012

I'm starting to think my skin is an idealistic hipster who despises anything mainstream. I was sooo excited to try this after reading its amazing reviews, bought it online from the US, waiting for weeks to receive it, not to mention the shipping fee which cost me almost as insane as the price, thank god didn't buy the 2oz. As almost every products containing salicylic acid/lactic acid …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Peter Thomas Roth - Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads

I have a love-hate relationship with both Glycolic and Salicylic Acid. I don't think they work well in controlling or getting rid of my acne, but they work quite great in making my skin have better complexion, combating blackheads and making skin softer and more radiant (Gosh I sound like a tagline on a product label). But well, to achieve all those I can use my one-dollar scrub, or oatmeal …Read more

Masks - My Beauty Diary - Natto Mask

Sep/10/2012

I've tried maybe two different MBD masks and I liked neither of them. Maybe, just m a y b e, my skin doesn't really digs sheet masks because I've also tried some from Diorsnow and SK-II and can't really tell any difference after each use (by difference I mean dewy-ness, softness, etc. I don't expect acne-curing miracles or anything). I still swear by peel-off masks. But …Read more

I haven't tried the Clarisonic yet so I really can't compare between these two, but for more than fifty bucks price difference (more than a hundred if compared to Clarisonic Pro) this one is the business, I tell you. The bees knees. I had only been using it for about two weeks and then my skin was clearing up, no crazy initial breakouts/purging phase whatsoever. But for a while, since I …Read more

I like it though I don't really get the mega hype over this product. It's refreshing and crazy cheap, but I don't think that it 'reduces blackheads' and 'shrink enlarged pores'. And the tube packaging...either nothing comes out or EVERYHING explodes. Tried it as spot treatment and didn't work the slightest bit. But it feels soothing, smells relaxing (the …Read more

Masks - The Body Shop - Tea Tree Oil Face Mask

Jun/17/2011

No. No, no. Isn't tea tree oil supposed to calm your skin from breaking out? And doesn't this claim to help inflamed skin? Or maybe there's something that says 'whatever we say, we do the opposite' somewhere on the packaging that I missed. Or maybe, because I bought this on sale in a massively reduced price, the efficacy is similarly reduced. Whatever the cause is, I …Read more

Cleansers - Philosophy - Purity Made Simple Cleanser

Jun/17/2011

I'm not keen on using face wash that is foamy and this isn't. It feels gentle and has a nice clean smell and does the job. I don't use heavy make-up daily, only mineral powder and this removes it well. So far I really like it, no breakouts or any unwanted reactions or irritation. I'm sticking to this until I find something cheaper, though the price is not too bad considering …Read more

Apr/08/2011

My favorite cleansing tool! I often get too lazy to wash my face with facial cleanser and water at night, the time where I need the deepest cleansing as I wear mineral foundation during the day. It practically removes everything away, doesn't break me out, has decent refreshing scent and it soothes my skin so so SO well. The price is reasonable, definitely recommend it and absolutely will …Read more

Masks - CLINIQUE - Turnaround Revitalizing Instant Facial

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/08/2011

I bought this hoping it would help fading my hyperpigmentation and dark spots and hello, irritation. It left me with new life-size pimples on my most easily affected and infected area, cheeks. Another 'yuck': even though I wasn't bothered, I don't get why they add the glitters or shimmers or whatever they're called to the mask, when we're searching for glowy, not …Read more
