BB Cream - LANEIGE - Snow BB Cream SPF41 PA++

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/04/2011

I had the same experience with usnguyen. Since this BB cream is from Laneige, I thought it would be of high quality. Unfortunately, after around an hour of wearing it, my face started to itch. And when I finally got home and took it off, I had breakouts and redness all throughout. Just thinking of it makes me itchy and angry at the same time. I couldn't locate the ingredients either. The …Read more

Loose Powders - JILL STUART - Loose Powder - Glow

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/29/2011

This is a review for the earlier version of Jill Stuart's loose powder. (They have since released a new powder with a flat top packaging.) I have this shade in 01 Glow, which is a natural powder with no shimmers. This loose powder is very fine and comes with a puff that is pure softness. 01 Glow is a pink-based, light colored powder that goes on translucent. It is slightly whiter than my …Read more

Sunscreen - Vanicream - Sunscreen SPF 50+

4.0

Mar/29/2011

Vanicream SPF 60 was prescribed by my dermatologist in line with other products to treat rosacea. She said this is the only sunscreen that would be suitable for my hyper sensitive skin. At first, I didn't like the greasy feeling it leaves me; I have been spoiled by the matte / glowy finish of Japanese sunscreens after all. But I did notice this does not have alcohol in it, and although it is …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Soap & Glory - Hand Food Hand Cream

4.0

Mar/28/2011

This hand moisturizer is light and non-greasy. It is the only non-greasy hand cream I have used that actually does what it says - moisturizes properly. Although the effects are temporary, the protection it offers lasts for almost the whole day. Used nightly, this is a pretty good moisturizer for the hands that delivers. The price is unbeatable for the product's quality.

Cleansers - MUJI - Mild Cleansing Oil

4.0

Mar/28/2011

I use Muji Cleansing Oil for Sensitive Skin. I like this slightly better than Shiseido FT's Perfect Oil because of its texture -- slightly thicker -- somehow I feel it cleanses a wee bit better. It hasn't broken me out which I appreciate very much. A basic, good-quality, reasonably-priced cleansing oil. A product with value.

Cleansers - SHISEIDO - "Perfect Oil" Cleansing Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/28/2011

Shiseido Fine Toiletry's (FT) Perfect Oil has been my staple makeup remover since RMK. It is a very runny liquid which I think is suitable for oily skin types. I like that it removes makeup well and washes off fairly easily without leaving too greasy a trace. I also always follow up with another cleanser after using cleansing oil (double cleanse). I like this much better than Shu …Read more

Body Scrubs - Soap & Glory - Smoothie Star Breakfast Scrub

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/28/2011

Soap & Glory's Breakfast Scrub is my favorite body scrub to date. I fell in love with the scent - I think I have never encountered a body scrub that smells like maple syrup. Oats, shea butter, and sugar are mixed together to form a creamy scrub that exfoliates and moisturizes my body so well. The granules are a combination of fine and medium sized buffers that are comfortable to use. I …Read more

Scrubs - SKINFOOD - Wash-Off Black Sugar Mask

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/28/2011

Skin Food Black Sugar Mask Wash Off is a scrub made of sugar and some oils. It comes in a tub and is brownish-black. The particles are not so fine, but not too abrasive either. I'd say the granules give a satisfying scrub. The smell reminds me of Coca-cola, but sweeter. I feel this scrub definitely removes dead skin cells on the upper layers of my skin. My skin is noticeably smoother to the …Read more

Treatments (Face) - JASÖN - Tea Tree Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/28/2011

I use this for pimples and found it works effectively. It really minimizes the pimple size and kills it inside also. Sometimes pimple potions only target the surface but I could still feel the bud beneath the skin. Jason Tea Tree Oil takes its time, and I really mean it takes its time to address the pimple (estimate 2~3 weeks of application every night), but it is effective and does not leave …Read more

Shampoo - Soap & Glory - Glad Hair Day

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/28/2011

I got this shampoo from Soap & Glory's Christmas 2010 Pink Big Set in the UK. To be honest, I had low expectations from this product because it looked frilly. I must say Glad Hair Day proved me wrong, and I have never been happier to be. This clear pinkish shampoo smells of raspberry and vinegar and is seriously addictive. It makes my hair genuinely shine when it dries. I believe its …Read more
