Skincare - Face - La Roche-Posay - Effaclar A.I.

Apr/21/2008

It's been 3 weeks since I started using this, and I think it's time to make a review. Well, I love it! I have had acne since my teens, and I've tried a lot of things for acne (the big, cystic, angry, red ones) - BP, SA, AHA, retinoids, antibiotics, tea tree oil, sulfur, you name it. Before Effaclar AI, the most effective solution I could find was to go to my dermatologist where she …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Palmer's - Cocoa Butter Formula (All Formulas)

Apr/14/2008

I like this. It smells overpoweringly sweet at first but fades away, moisturizes well, and gets absorbed quite easily. I like this much better than I like the body oil, which I will just use up so it doesn't go to waste. This, however, is worth repurchasing and keeping around when you need extra moisture. I find I reach for this as often as I reach for my L'Occitane hand cremes. Good …Read more

Bath Treatments - Palmer's - Body Oil

Apr/14/2008

I would like to repeat what one of the reviewers said below - Check first if you can stand smelling like sweet chocolate and cooking oil for hours! I love chocolate, but smelling it all the time isn't great. The scent also goes everywhere. My sheets and clothes smell like it when I use it - not nice! I find that it doesn't sink in easily, although it's moderately moisturizing. I …Read more

Masks - Olay - Daily Facials Deep Cleansing Clay Mask [DISCONTINUED]

Apr/14/2008

This is an OK kaolin-based clay mask. I have super oily skin and I like to use clays to de-congest my pores once in a while. Although the texture and smell of the mask is nice, it didn't do much for my skin - I think the effect was more mental for me. :P I even tried dotting it on zits overnight to see what it would do. Nada.

Give this a try if your skin isn't extremely oily …

Cleansers - Olay - Clarity Foaming Face Wash

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/14/2008

I bought this to compare with its cousin, the Clarify cleansing cloths, which I love. These smell nice like most of the Olay Clarify products, and foams well. I find that it cleans gently and thoroughly, and does not leave my skin tight after washing. (My skin is very tolerant to acids, so the salicylic acid in this did nothing for me.) However, I find that it's a bit hard to wash out, so …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Earth Therapeutics - Clari-T Acne Serum

4.0

Apr/07/2008

This, IMHO, is just a glorified BP product. I thought that the good reviews here and the fact that it contains salicylic acid and glycolic acid would make it a more effective BP product, but all it did was irritate and dry up my skin after 3 weeks of use. My zits were still alive but buried under red and crusty skin. (My mom also told me that my skin looks rougher after I started using this.) And …Read more

Mascara - FASIO - Long Extension Mascara

2.0

Mar/26/2008

I used to think that this mascara was the bomb. Sick of having raccoon eyes from other formulas, I tried this because I've heard that it stays put all day. And it does! Even after removing all my makeup with normal cleanser, I find that I still have the mascara staying nicely on my lashes (and my lashes only).
However, my love for it turned sour when I discovered Estee Lauder Double …

Blush - Pure Luxe Cosmetics - Blush in Nymph

Mar/13/2008

I haven't actually tried Orgasm from Nars, but I bought these because of the hype about Orgasm and thought this was a cheap substitute. *guilty look*

Overall, I think this is an OK blush. I will not talk about the shade because the nice-ness of blush colors depend ultimately on the person's skin tone, but I wasn't exceptionally happy with this product overall because I …

Cleansers - Olay - Clarify & Cleanse Lathering Cloths

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/13/2008

I bought this cleanser in the supermarket here in Barcelona after reading reviews here. My initial reaction was, "7 euros for 30 sheets?!" If I wash my face twice a day with these, it will cost me 14 euros a month just to clean my face. However, I have bought these numerous times already because although they are expensive for an Olay product, it does the job well and I have not found a …Read more

Cleansers - L'Oreal Paris - De-maq'Expert Elixir Concentrate

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/23/2007

I just bought this product basing on the reviews here, and what can i say, I agree with the reviews! Before the Demaq line came out, I removed makeup with Naive Cleansing Oil from Kanebo, and I thought it was doing a good job. However, I use the toughest waterproof mascara (Fasio), and it took awhile to get makeup off and I tended to tug the eye area a bit. The Elixir, however, glides really …Read more
