At very first, when I tried this product, I saw the oily substances drawn out from my skin, most the blackheads were gone, I saw big red pores on my skin! I thought it's miracle! That's what I dreamed of! Though my skin were dry and hurting as I pulled the strip out.

But then, after using a few, I discovered that the skin around my nose were very dry, chapped. That's …

When I picked this up, I expect it would clear the blackheads/dirts in my pore, and refine the pores. But the end result is: 1. it does not clean well. 2. my pores are still stuff w/ blackheads or dirts. 3. the pore size remained unchanged.

Why do I get this? It's the very first time I learnt that skin care company describe the product would work this this way, and it does not …

I only bought a little tub(for travel size) at Walmart. It's too abrasive for me! So, I threw it away, it might scrub well on my heel, but not my face!

I love the scent and the gentle touch of this toner. It's moisturizing and refreshing, at the same time, without strong alchohol smell. It does not sting my face. And it seems to be moisturizing my skin in the summer days even though I did not put moisturizer on. Will buy it again if I cannot find a cheaper "natural" toner out there. Cost me almost $30 cdn after tax, it's too …Read more

It cleans very well. But It seems to derive lots of moisture out of my face.(maybe removing too much natural oil from the skin). I have combination, a oily T zone in the summer. But it's too dry for other parts of my skin. So, I dropped it off for anther cleanser, Avalon's Sea Kelp cleanser, but that one does not clean my T zone as well. I picked up Avalon's Vitamin C cleanser …Read more

I bought this from a MK consultant last year, who claimed it's gentle for the skin, and may clear up some of the blackheads on my nose! But, I really cannot stand this chemical smell on the toner, the smell of alchohol. I feel like applying achohol everytime when I used it. Though my face has no reactions, I don't feel that much refreshed either. The end is, I avoided using it for a …Read more

It's very cool and soothing. But, if you are looking for an eye cream that will reduces lines or wrinkles, or dark circles. I would not recommend this one. I bought mine online for $7 USD from a website that buy Liquidating products from MK consultants, obviously, not all MK consultants do well.

For that price, the soothing effect, I guess a mask eye from Body Shop will do too …

The step 1 is too abrasive for my skin. I remembered that my MK consultant repeated to us again & again that we have to put lots of water on our face before putting the abrasion cream on our face. I did splash lots of water, & massage lightly using my index fingers(as instructed), & put step 2 cream on. I still can feel the sting of those tiny particles "scraped" over my …Read more

I used this product in last summer. It's light, feel very cool and " gel like"(not greasy at all) when first applied to my skin. It does moisturize well after I applied before bedtime. It's good for the summer, it makes my skin softer and smoother. But, it does not dramatically changed my skin tone and texture though. I should say it does provide moisture, but I expect more …Read more
