When I ran out ot my holy grail cleanser and didn't find any online reasonable deals for that cleanser, I decided to bought this. At first, I bought share in jars (the seller actually put this in small flip cap bottle) to test if my skin like this cleanser or not. It turns out that I didn't have breakouts when using it, so I purchase full 200ml tube.

My skin is dehydrated …

Great for value. You can get 500ml of toner for fairly cheap price. I'm on my 2nd bottle, I use it sparingly because I got pregnant & on my way nursing my baby. My hubby kinda prohibited me of using any skincare, so one bottle take months to finish (even if my obgyn said yes to any skincare without tretinoin/steroid/hydroquinone/quinone).

What I like about this toner is its …

I purchased this from Australia. I don't know if the formulation is the same across the world or not..

This is my current HG sunscreen at the moment. I don't experience any breakout when using this when I travel, everyday for a week. Usually I'm mostly stay at home so I don't use this everyday, except when I travel/going outside. I use this as my last step of …

My favorite flavor from MBD (followed by hyaluronic & apple). Decent hydrating face mask, not something too rich until my skin can't handle & breakout in pimples. Maybe this mask isn't enough hydrating/moisturizing if you have dry/very dry skin. I have combo-oily clogged & acne prone skin.

I usually use MBD sheet mask on my 3step masking routine (twice per …

I'm not liking it at first. I'm combo-oily clogged & acne prone skin. Just a mere eyebrow pencil can cause acne on me.

Everything about scent & texture stated on other reviewers are true. Sheer orangey gel to oil with leather-y rose scent. I find rose scent is pleasing & relaxing. I like the scent.

I use this as morning cleanser. On my first 2weeks, I …

Sep/19/2017

My go-to travel pallete. Decent palette size with pretty eyeshadow combination, natural blush, bronzer & highlighter.

It's easy to use for day to night eye-makeup. Pigmented eyeshadow & easy to blend too. It last 12hours on me without creasing/fading (I use The Balm eye primer)

Bronzer a bit too light for contouring so I always bring extra bronzer. Highlight is …

About MAC:
- They have the rudest sales assistant EVER! How they speak to you, body languages, unwillingness to show products, and they alwaysss play with testers, ignoring you (now MAC counter in our biggest mall is closing …

Surprised that no one on MUAlley have reviewed this oil..?? This gonna be a looong post :)

This oil is made from the seeds of the Perilla frutescens, a leafy, bushy herb in the mint family that’s also known as “wild basil” (because it’s often mistaken for basil), “purple mint,” “rattlesnake weed,” and “Shiso.” (AnnmarieGianni.com)

When I heard about Shiso, I remembered one …

I wish this SS (SunScreen) is for me but unfortunately NOT. A bit upsetting because this brand is relatively easy to find in my city..

This high SPF SS texture is awesome. White colored gel cream and fresh citrusy scent. It's lightweight and slightly cooling upon application. Fast absorbing & leave your skin hydrated and soft to touch (probably the silicone in it) also no …
