Skincare - Face - TONYMOLY - 2X First Essence

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/15/2016

I've tried several first essences SKII, Missha, etc and I would say that I like this the best. The texture is more like a watery gel, very different from the typical toner consistency. If you are looking for a dupe of SKII essence, then you would be disappointed. And yet TonyMoly delivers what I expect and more. The key is that it's meant to enhance what you use after. By itself, it …Read more

BB Cream - The Face Shop - Magic Cover BB Cream

4.0

Magic Cover BB cream is a good alternative to the The Face Shop Perfect Cover BB cream at 2/3 of the price. The size and the tube with pump are great yo carry around. But beware of the shades. The Korean BB creams can get ghostly pale. I use 203 which has pink undertone, great for under eye or mixing with other yellow tone BB cream.

Lip Treatments - MILANI - Moisture Lock Oil Infused Lip Treatment

1.0

Apr/06/2016

This product goes from a 5 to 1 rating in a span of 3 days. When I first bought it, I totally loved the gloss and moisture effect on my lips. It smoothed out my lines on my lips! I put it on my bathroom counter, used it 3-4 times, and then exactly 3 days later, the stopper came apart from the tub and stuck to the cap. Just like the pic taken by another reviewer. The manufacturer doesn't …Read more

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Posietint

Dec/04/2015

I used benetint a long time ago and loved it. One day I dropped the bottle, it broke, splashed and stained my shirt. No more benetint for me. Then this month, I saw the Benefit vending machine at the airport and they have the travel kit of benetint, posietint and high bean minis (each 1/3 of full size) for only $18! What a steal. I bought 2 right away and fell in love again. The smaller bottles …Read more

BB Cream - The Face Shop - Power Perfection BB Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/04/2015

Power perfection BB cream has all the typical problems of Korean BB creams - pink undertone (though not as bad as Missha), too dewy and expensive. I bought a small tube on a whim, tried it out a couple times, aghast that I looked like a shiny mess throughout the day despite my very dry middle age skin, and tossed it into my makeup dump pile.

I recently find a good use for it, though …

Lotions/ Creams - Jergens - Wet Skin moisturizer - all types

Nov/11/2015

I really wanted this lotion to work. It's easy to use and smells good (the monoi version). It left my skin really soft and smooth almost to the extent that you feel it's coated. But alas, I have reaction to some ingredients and it causes the skin to be very itchy. I tolerated the itch for over a week to no avail and finally had to toss it to the trash.

Hair Treatments - PANTENE - Dry Defy Velvet Creme Infusion

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/20/2015

It's supposed to be a leave-in conditioner / treatment for dry hair. My hair is colored and permed straight. Some ends are also damaged that I desperately want to rescue. It is very light and absorbs very quickly. While it doesn't leave any greasy feel, it doesn't have discernible hydrating effects. Given the price point which is higher than regular Pantene and other drugstore …Read more

Cleansers - Olay - 4-In-1 Daily Facial Cloth - Normal

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/20/2015

I have been using these for makeup removal and facial cleansing for a couple of years. In my opinion, these are much better than pre-moistened ones. It doesn't dry out as it stays around, it's easier to carry around, great for travel, and half a cloth is more than enough to remove a whole face of light makeup. (Being a cheapskate, I cut each cloth in halves and sometimes quarters to …Read more

BB Cream - MISSHA - Signature Wrinkle Filler BB Cream

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/10/2015

I bought it on an impulse during a trip. I should have known better. I was attracted by the creamy texture and that it didn't crease into my fine lines. But the benefits end here. The colors available are all ashy pink, don't match my yellow tone at all. It looks like a mask on my face. And the worst thing is that it gave my tiny white cysts. I never have any problem with makeup and I …Read more
