After hearing so many great reviews on this product, I decided to invest on this serum. I don't remember exactly how much I paid, but I think it was approximately $110 tax in. I really wanted to love this product, but unfortunately I am quite disappointed. I apply it every night before my night cream, but the serum did nothing for my skin. I have very dry skin, and the serum was just not …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - ORIGINS - High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral-enriched eye cream

Despite some negative reviews, I actually quite like this eye cream. I've been using it for about 2 months and didn't experience the burning and stinging that some reviews mentioned. I understand why this eye cream is recommended for evening use only. It comes in a creamy texture, but as soon as you apply it, it becomes and oil base. It is therefore hard to imagine applying it …Read more

Moisturizers - SHISEIDO - White Lucent Brightening Moisturizing Emulsion

Jul/06/2012

I've been using this for about 2 months now, and I don't really notice any difference to my skin. Although my skin is probably a tad brighter, the results are not dramatic or even that noticeable. It is also supposed to be a moisturizer, but the consistency is way too runny and thin to be moisturizing. For those ladies that are looking for a product that will whiten and brighten the …Read more

Sunscreen - CLINIQUE - Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 40

This is a pretty good sunscreen. What I like about it is that it has a sheer tint to it, so after application, you donn't need to apply a face full of foundation and concealer. However, like a lot of sunscreens out there, it gives my skin a greasy whitish look at first, but the problem can be solved with a little bit of powder or foundation. I only wear this when I know I will be exposed …Read more

Toners - Elizabeth Arden - Hydra-Splash Alcohol Free Toner

May/27/2012

I never used toner as part of my skin care regimen until recently. I noticed my skin was dull and lifeless so I decided to use a toner. I picked this one up because I have very dry sensitive skin and this product claims it "hydrates" the skin. Another attractive bonus is that it is alcohol free. It is very gentle on the skin, and the best part is that it really takes off all the …Read more

My skin break out during that time of the month, and I use Differin during those time and I find that I really does clear it up faster.. It is also not drying, but that's also probably because i use the low dosage version. I use it both night and day as a spot treatment, I don't use it all over my face. I really think it's working and would purchase it again but only if I have …Read more

I do not like this foundation. Yes, it offers very good coverage, but I find it way too drying. I have normal/dry skin, but this foundation makes my skin look and fee very very dry. This product is best suited for those with oilier complexion. My sister also purchased this, and she loves it, and it makes her skin look flawless. It is also quite pricey for a bottle of foundation, I paid $56 for …Read more

May/01/2012

I used to use Clinique Moisture Surge Intense but it wasn't moisturizing enough. I decided to try this cream, and purchased the version for very dry and cold climate skin. The price is a little bit more expensive than Clinique but the quality is a lot better. I paid about $50 for this cream and this is definitely helping with my very dry skin. I love the texture of it, although it is …Read more

Cleansers - Philosophy - Purity Made Simple Cleanser

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/06/2012

I understand this cleanser works for many, but it does not work for me. I have dry skin, and this dries it out some more. Although it is recommended for all skin type, I think it is more suitable for normal, combo, or oily skin. Immediately after my shower, my skin feels tight and it also starts flaking. I got this from my bestfriend, although I love her, I don't love this gift in …Read more

Hair Treatments - Rene Furterer - Complexe 5 Regenerating Extract

Mar/06/2012

I have a very dry scalp so I try to do an oil treatment on my scalp at least once a week. I alternate between this and the Phyto elixir, also purchased at Sephora. Although the two differ in essential oil, they produce relatively the same results. The only reason why I am sticking to this one is because this oil is cheaper and comes in a bigger bottle. The application process is fairly easy …Read more
