I have sensitive skin that is oily but generally dehydrated. Bought this product because of its simple yet good formulation (very few but good ingredients), and was hoping it would moisturize without irritating my skin or causing it to break out.
Was a disappointed that it didn't really seem to do much, apart giving me refreshing feeling upon application. An hour or so later it felt …

Sunscreen - KANEBO - Allie UV Moisture Gel SPF 50 PA+++

I'm on my 4th bottle of this amazing product. Cannot live without it. I did a lot of research before purchasing and I'm so happy I found it. I couldn't really wear sunscreen before I found this one. Most of the times they just felt too oily and heavy, clogged my pores or left an ugly cast. None of this happens with this product.
Another great thing about it is that I have …

Eyeliner - NARS Cosmetics - Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner - Via Veneto

Hands down the best pencil I've ever found. I thought that none could surpass my Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner. It was quite a surprise to find such a heavily pigmented pencil with AMAZING staying power and silky smooth consistency (just glides on).
The packaging is also quite ingenious. It looks like a wooden pencil, but it's one of those twisting kinds (perfect for those who …

This has got to be one of my favorite polishes of all time. At least, color wise. OK, I admit I'm not a big fan of Essie (c'mon, it's about time they update their packaging/brushes), but I this color looks amazing on a sun-kissed skin come summertime! I have tried to no avail to find a dupe, but so far, haven't been able to. I had none of the problems people are complaining …Read more

Scrubs - AmorePacific - Treatment Enzyme Peel

I found this to be one of those products that become a staple in one's skincare routine once introduced. I cannot live without it! I have sensitive combo skin, and everyday use has not been a problem. After applying it, I feel my skin is very supple and radiant, and I can definitely see a big difference in my skin tone (much more even). Contrary to other reviewers, I do I feel that it …Read more

This has got to be one of the worst mascaras I have ever tried. Lumpy doesn't even begin to describe the disastrous application process that ensued every time I try to use this product. And I had such high expectations for it (perhaps I thought it could do for my eyelashes what my beloved, now discontinued, SK II Air Touch foundation used to do for my skin).... But well, what can I say... …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Clarisonic - Pro Skincare Brush [DISCONTINUED]

Jun/09/2009

"$200 for a facial brush?!?!?! What has the world come to?!?" I must admit those were my first thoughts when I heard about the Clearisonic. I used to think (and still do), that us women are terribly vulnerable to novelties in the world of cosmetics. Everything is a "must have", since we're so afraid the one thing we let pass by could otherwise be the HG that would really …Read more

Treatments (Face) - La Prairie - Extrait of Skin Caviar

Apr/11/2009

Did not like it. My skin is combination/oily in the summer and oily with dry patches during winter. Applied it first time on a cold dry day, and can't stand how it feels: like a sticky, oily film. Can't imagine what it would've done to my skin on a hot humid day. Didn't have a chance to read the ingredient list, but it surely contains some sort of silicone. Gives me a …Read more

Treatments (Face) - CLARINS - Gentle Facial Peeling

Mar/26/2009

Love, love, love this product. I've been using retinol, so my skin gets lots of dry patches and rough areas, making it impossible to wear foundation without it caking up. Furthermore, the retinol makes my skin too sensitive to use products it would otherwise tolerate. This was such a finding! After using it, most of the dry patches were visibly reduced, and I could even wear a light …Read more

I really wanted to like this product. I got over the price and the fact that it smells like rotten oranges. Unfortunately, my skin couldn't get over the red bumps and irritation that came with it. I like being on top of the latest innovations of the cosmetic industry, but unfortunately this one doesn't work for me. I love it promises to be the best antioxidant available on the market …Read more
