Here are all my reviews:
  • Neutrogena Rainbath Refreshing Shower and Bath Gel

    This one's a great cleanser. It smells like grapefruit, which is nice, and is perfect for those days after school/work where you just need a great splash of water (and something revivifying). This can be drying, though, so I don't use it twice a day.

  • Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive
    10.0

    Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive

    A necessary beauty cabinet staple for radiance!

    I bought this because of the good reviews it got online. Fearing that its more concentrated formula (Green Apple Peel Full Strength) would irritate my skin, I opted for Green Apple Sensitive instead. And I must say it works superbly. It has a cream-like consistency that smells like apple cider. It's not heavy, and glides smoothly on your skin. Upon the first two or so uses, your face would redden, but this will subside after a while. But the best part of this cream is how it leaves your skin after the redness etc: smooth, skin, radiant, glowing! It fades acne marks (both old and new) and smoothens everything. In other words, your face is left flawless. Whenever I use this, I'm tempted to go out without makeup.

  • Kiehl's Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter

    Stuff I love about this product: First, the fragrance. It smells like the sweetest cake you'll ever taste -- creamy, buttery, and honey-like. It doesn't become off-putting with time, like other lotions, and it doesn't wear off easily. Also, it's enough to make me want to eat the whole thing (oh if only it were edible)! Second, the soft texture. It's like putting on whip cream, really. It's not very viscous and spreads relatively easily compared to other viscous products. Third, what it does. It's very moisturizing, leaves the skin really soft and smooth once it sets in. Couldn't stop feeling my arm skin after this. One con, though: it's not suited for people who live in hot and humid weather. When you sweat with this product on, you feel like a mess. That's why I use this only at night when it's cold.

  • Sebamed Moisturizing Body Lotion

    This was a so-so product for me. It has a nice sweet scent (chamomile) and after applying, it dries quickly and makes your skin look clean and healthy. It's too light so you have to reapply if you want it too remain that way. it does little for sensitive-skinned people, though (like me). One day I had the worst skin irritation (because I'm photosensitive), but this didn't "soothe" my skin just as it promised. Now, I just use it as a foot lotion.

  • Sebamed Liquid Face and Body Wash

    This product makes your skin feel and look healthy afterwards. It lathers easily and removes makeup well, too. Caution, though, if you don't do as the instructions say (which is NOT to use the product excessively) it can be harsh on the skin. I overused the product and it caused some serious irritation.

  • Sebamed Moisturizing Cream

    Hated this product! It has a weird smell and it's greasy. It's thick, too, and hard to spread so in order to cover your whole face you need a lot of it. you end up using too much it makes your skin oily. Had to blot out the excess oil. Not a good product.

  • Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief

    I live in a tropical country where summer is intensely hot and humid so my ideal moisturizer (i've dry-combination skin) is one that's lightweight, non-greasy, non-comedogenic, at the same time moisturizing enough so my face won't flake bc of the weather. And this one is just it! A little goes a long way -- I just tap some of the product on my face and it works fine. Makes the skin look bright and healthy. Highly recommended!

  • Kiehl's Over-Night Biological Peel

    I agree with the other positive reviews here. This product's a fantastic one. It does its job of exfoliating (without irritating the skin). After you wash your face in the morning, you get clearer, smoother skin (my pimples were gone!), the redness fades, and acne scars appear less visible. Didn't do anything to cure my blackheads, though (but they're stubborn, really).

  • Clinique Almost Lipstick
    9.0

    Clinique Almost Lipstick

    Almost the best

    What I love about Almost Lipstick: 1. the buildable color 2. the fact that it's like a combination of lip balm, lip gloss, and lipstick 3. the attractive sleek package 4. it doesn't dry out the lips the way some lip color products do after a period of time so you can reapply frequently What I don't like: 1. that it just wears off too quickly. less than 4 hours on my part, I think But still, the pros outweigh the cons for me.

  • Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Radiance Renewer

    In Asia (where I'm from), this product's called Turnaround Concentrate Extra Radiance Renewer. Not sure if the non-Asian version has different ingredients. Anyway, I'm reviewing the Asian version. :) Before I bought this, I received a sample from Clinique. When the saleslady applied it to my skin, the result was immediate. Dull, uneven, and blotchy skin became smooth and radiant. I was waiting for a break-out, actually, as serums usually broke me out, but there was none of that. After a week-long use of the samples she gave me (a little goes a long way, btw), I noticed that there was a significant change in my skin. It didn't just help me look more radiant, it also evened out my skin tone. Later, I found out that the whole line was tailored for Asian skin (probably because of weather factors and all that) which was more susceptible to dullness, so plus points for that. I've been using it for more than 5 months now, and there have been no break-outs, whatsoever. It calms down redness and really does its job of exfoliating dead skin cells away :) My skin looks smooth without make-up!
