Lotions/ Creams - The Body Shop - Morrocan Rose Body Milk

Jun/21/2011

I bought the body milk version which comes in a spray bottle. The body milk is liquid so it goes on the skin very light and gets absorbed swiftly. The skin is left silky smooth with a hint of the lovely fragrance lasting for hours. I was truly surprised at how effective this is as a body moisturizer. I only use it in the warmer months though because it is not strong enough for the cold, dry …Read more

Body Scrubs - AVEDA - Caribbean Therapy Body Scrub

Jun/21/2011

I like that the sugar scrub does not just melt away when contact with water, like many similar products do. The scrub is extremely effective leaving skin baby soft. The sugar particles are not particularly harsh so you don't feel like you are mistreating your skin. However, I need to use a regular bath soap to wash after the treatment, or else, I feel oily and unclean. This is definitely …Read more

Moisturizers - Kinerase - Kinerase Cream

There is no fancy packaging or amazing smell with this cream - it looks like your normal drug store brand and smells like clay. It makes a great day cream because it leaves skin soft without any shiny, oily residual. Also, it does not cause any pimple or whitehead. However, it could feel a bit dry if used alone in the winter months. I would put a serum before applying this cream. Overall, a …Read more

Treatments (Face) - ELEMIS - Cellular recovery skin bliss capsules

Jun/13/2011

I finished one tub of capsules and I have to admit, they saved my life (skin)! I developed pimples from using Creme de la Mer. For weeks since I gave the Creme de la Mer away to my mom, I was struggling to treat the blemishes and scars left from the aftermath.

Since I used the capsules, my face has cleared up and normalized within a month. The scars have faded dramatically and pores …

Moisturizers - SK-II - Skin Signature Melting Rich Cream

May/22/2011

My husband has always used men's skincare line from Lancome, Clinique, Shiseido etc. with no particular skin problems. I convinced him to try women's stuff as I believe they work better than lines created specifically for men. So I bought him the full range of SKII products including the Facial Treatment Essence, Repair C Serum, Skin Signature Eye Cream and Skin Signature Cream. I …Read more

Masks - SK-II - Facial Treatment Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/22/2011

Part of my routine is to put on a facial mask every night. I use all types of masks from different brands and across all price ranges: Valmont, Sisley, Fresh, SKII, Eve Lom, Origins, Bliss, Neutrogena, My Beauty Diary, random Korean/Japanese brands... you get the point. Since I put them on every day, I really have no loyalty to a specific type or brand except this particular …Read more

May/22/2011

I bought a jar for mom a few years ago and it worked extremely well for her. When I was done with my Sisley and Darphin products, I decided to try Creme De La Mer myself. I really wanted to like this product and every time I put it on for a week or so at night, I suffered from breakouts and white heads. I would then stop for a few weeks until the blemishes were gone and test again. Same thing …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Darphin - Aromatic renewing balm

4.0

Apr/11/2011

Like the purifying balm, Darphin's renewing balm does not cause breakout even though it is oil-based. The citrus smell is refreshing. It goes on sticky but when left overnight, the skin simply soaks up the balm. You wake up with super soft and glowing skin in the morning.

Apr/10/2011

I wear this alone over my sunscreen and my skin looks poreless and stays matte throughout the day. I have not tried layering foundation on top of this so I am not sure if it rubs off like other reviewers here noted. But when used alone, I find it a great alternative to tinted moisturizers and BB cream. You have to wait a bit for the product to work. After you put it on, you will feel a …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Yves Saint Laurent - Touche Eclat (Radiant Touch)

Apr/10/2011

Maybe I am not good with makeup, I simply don't know how to handle this supposedly magic wand. I didn't expect to use it as a concealer as I don't have the problem of dark eye circles to begin with. But as a highlighter, the product doesn't blend well onto the skin so I am left with a cluster of sparkles wherever I put this on. Instead of a natural highlight, I end up with …Read more
