I like this enough. The scent is light and it feels pretty much like a rich body cream. I'm 25 weeks pregnant and have been using this almost everyday for the past 3+ months, now on my second jar. I rub this all over my torso and also my butt (where I had some existing stretch marks) then I use Trader Joe's Midsummer Cream on my arms and legs. I do think stretch marks are mostly genetic …Read more

My mom gave me a gwp of this and I was surprised by how wearable the shade is. In the tube it looks much darker than it does on my lips. A nice orangey light brown that doesn't wash out my skin like a lot of darker lipsticks tend to. Not sure if I would purchase when I run out bc I usually wear tinted glosses but worth considering for sure.

I have this in Blushing Pink which was included in the Sheer Radiance Collection. The texture feels very unique. Packaged like a gloss but the matte texture feels more like a lipstick. Not too crazy about the particular shade (a mauvey pink) and the price is a bit steep to purchase separately. I personally prefer tinted glosses but might be interested in trying this in a different shade in the …Read more

My sister sent me this in shade 2 (mandarin). The packaging is adorable and I really like the scent. The idea is to wear one coat for tint and two coats for lipstick effect. I found that it went on a little streaky so I have to blend it with my fingers. The texture feels a bit watery going on. This particular shade was a little too orange for me. It also feels really drying on my lips so I will …Read more

I hardly ever wear powder but I do like carrying one in my purse to touch up on humid days (I live in San Diego so it's pretty dry here all around). Having said that, I don't know how this stacks up compared to a lot of other powders but I like the scent and it doesn't make my skin look cakey of ashy so that's a plus. I also like the simple packaging. Wouldn't mind …Read more

This is my favorite line from this store. Intended for people with sensitive skin. I've tried the toner, ampoule, emulsion, and cream. Currently using just the toner which comes in a spray bottle and the cream which comes in a tube with a pump. It's a light cream but provides enough moisture to hydrate my normal to dry skin (I do need something a little richer in the winter). These are …Read more

I used to use this whole line because I really like the scent (very fresh and a little sweet). The gel texture feels really cool but it's a little too light for me as a moisturizer. The glass jar is cute but hard to travel with and not very hygienic. I liked the product enough to use it up but not enough to repurchase. However, I do use the water mist in the same scent which I love. I also …Read more

My mom always gives me her gwp samples but I have yet to try a Clinique mascara that I like. I can't wear this one without getting raccoon eyes. I went to watch my husband surf the other day and it was a little cold so my eyes got a little teary. My husband gasped when he saw me bc this mascara had bled all over my eyes. Same thing happens if I yawn or rub my eyes. I find the mascara to be …Read more

I have weird Asian hair where half of it is stick straight and kinky/wavy in random spots. I usually have to flat iron if I want to wear my hair down so I figured I would try my hand at attempting some beach waves (since I live a block from the beach anyways). Unfortunately, this doesn't give me beach waves. In fact, if I wait until my hair is 99% dry and blast with a blowdryer combing with …Read more

The Etude Precious Mineral goes on sheerer than the IOPE Ex Cover Air Cushion but I actually prefer that (for reference, I usually wear tinted moisturizers or very light foundations). You can build this up for light-medium coverage with a dewy finsh. If you want something with more coverage, try the IOPE or one of the many other air cushions that are all the rage in Korea right now …Read more
