I'm Asian. I bought shade 2 online and was expected 2 is good for Asian skin tone while 1 is for white people who have fair skin tone. However, 2 is too dark for me which made me look like I'm sunburned. It's kind of sticky as well. If you have very dry skin, this is not a bad choice as it very nourishing and won't dry out your skin.

After reading the good reviews, I decided to give it a try and I'm not disappointed as it refreshes my dull skin. I have tried different toners from the cheap to expensive brands, but this one is by far the best that improves my skin within a day or two. Mine is oily and dehydrated skin with lots of blackhead and whitehead on my T-zone. Many toners did dry out my skin but not this one. I …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Jouer Cosmetics - Luminizing Moisture Tint Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 20

I really wanted to like it, but I'm quite disappointed as it made my face looks so orange. If you don't have flawless skin, I don't recommend this tinted moisturizer because it doesn't have any coverage, plus would accentuate your fine lines due to the glittery ingredients. The only good point is it won't dry out the skin.

I used to have blackhead, whitehead and large pore on my T-zone. After taking YAZ, I got lots of tiny size of hormonal freckles all over my face. So I first gave it a try on Obagi Clenziderm, which targets on pores and pimples. After months of using it, 70% of blackhead and whitehead were gone, pores were shrunk.

Then, I started using CR-X system in order to get rid of the freckles …

I've been using it for 4 weeks now. I'm not an acne prone skin, but quite oily on T-zone area with lots of blackhead and whitehead on it. After stopped taking YAZ, I do have some hormonal breakouts.

First week - What I could see and feel on my skin were redness, itchiness, and dryness. I almost wanted to stop using it due to these barely bearable feelings. …

Sunscreen - Hawaiian Tropic - Hawaiian Tropic Oil-Free Faces SPF 30, Sheer Reflections Formula [DISCONTINUED]

I've tried different sunscreen from cosmetic brands. Recently read an article stating that many sunscreen from high end cosmetic brands don't block UVB/UVA though they claim they do. Becos of this reason, I wanted to try a well-known brand in the sun care segment. Since I have combo/oily face, so I have to have a sunscreen item oil-free for face. So far this sunscreen hasn't …Read more

I bought the cleansing foam I, which is for normal to oily skin. However, I found it's not suitable for my normal with oily T-zone face. After using it, my face was rough and dry as though it was cleansed by detergent. Maybe it's only good for young ppl who have very oily skin or acne-prone skin.

I bought the Opalescent White. It supposed to even out the skin tone before applying founcation, but I didn't see any improvements on my uneven skin tone. Plus, it exacerbated my dehydrated skin. My skin felt sticky too. It is definately a waste of money and I will not repurchase again.

Oct/22/2007

Even though some ppl complainted that the peeling gel was a waste of money. I decided to give a try as the price is reasonable. I've been using it for 2 weeks now with 2 times a week. I apply it on my dry and cleansed face and massage my face for one minute and rinse it. It smells great like putting strawberry yogurt on my face. I feel my skin smoother and softer, and it diminishes my …Read more
