Although Philosophy's Purity One Step Cleanser has a ph of 5.5, I still think the price for this product is too high for what it actually does. I only got mine from last year's Sephora Black Friday deal but honestly, it does not live up to the hype that the Internet brags about. Yes it is gentle on the skin but it does not really remove makeup as effective as you double cleanse with an oil cleanser and another cleanser of your choice. I had trouble finishing my bottle because I only use it when I am extremely tired and I need to remove sunscreen out of my face (and not makeup). I would really consider another cleanser if you are on the fence of buying this item.

I had an allergic reaction to dust last winter and this saved my skin. Not only it soothed my skin but this cream hydrated me from the cold and harsh winter in North America. I highly recommend this cream during winter since it's a bit thick for summer. 

I tried so many sunscreens but they either dry me out or leave a white cast. This Dior one runs like an essence and it does not leave a white cast. I apply it before my moisturizer because I felt more comfortable with that combination than after moisturizer like your normally do with sunscreen. Sunscreen companies should definitely learn from Dior because it is the BEST of the BESTEST sunscreens I ever used. It is really expensive for such little bottle so I use it very efficiently... Hehehe

I have the #45 Rouge Tuxedo which is a cherry red color lipstick. Again, I normally don't go venture in lipsticks but this one is definitely a revolutionary one. It glides on your lips so smoothly due to its oil components. With one swipe, this lipstick will give you a hint of color. If you wish to have more color depth, you can add layers of it without drying or overdoing it. This lipstick gives color and moisturizing effect, what is there not to love? You definitely have to re-apply throughout the day which isn't an issue for me because it's so easy to re-apply.

I bought this for two of my girlfriends and they both liked it for the "faux cils" effect, meaning the false lashes effect in French. They said with time, it might dry out but if you add a drop or two of eye drop, the mascara will be good as new!

Another favorite line from YSL for me! I bought #6 (Luscious Cherry), #10 (Tangy Mandarine) and #12 (Tasty Raspberry) in Paris. I tend to grab them more because it's like a lip balm with a hint of subtle color. Among those three, Luscious Cherry is my favorite because its a cherry red that I can apply without a mirror. Plus, it is in the moisturizing side that I don't mind reapplying when the color fades. I know it's a bit pricy for a colored lip balm but if I reach out for them on a daily basis versus a lipstick, then I believe it's worth it. Besides, you only have one pair of lips, so you technically don't need 20 lipsticks in your collection. A handful of them to match your mood and you're good to go!

I'm a fan of YSL lip products and this one did not disappoint. I have the Cherry my Cherie which is Number 5 from the collection. It's a very moisturizing lip tint with a hint of stain and yet, not sticky at all! I used to hate lip gloss due to the sticky aspect of them but this is the only one changed my opinion on lip gloss. I prefer stain/tint lip products over lipsticks because it's not drying and less of a hassle to apply on the lips. If you are looking for a high color pay off lip gloss, this is not for you. 

With the use of charcoal powder and natural clay, Neogence's Deep Pore Cleansing Mask washes your pores in minutes. At first, you will see a dark grey color when you apply on your skin. As it dries out, the mask turns fully into a lighter color, which means you can wash it off. If you have excess sebum, or blackheads, you will notice the mask will suck up the excess sebum and reduce blackheads as well. I think this mask can be comparable to Origins' charcoal mask but for the fraction of its price. I normally use this mask in the weekend following by a moisturizer mask.

I tried this product from the Khiels' midnight recovery gift set that I bought. I just finished using the bottle yesterday and I can contest this thing makes my skin so smooth the next morning. I can honestly see myself repurchasing this but I just bought a bottle of Estee Lauder's ANR serum recently. In terms of pricing, Khiels' is definitely in the more affordable side for serums. 

This is basically a pre-toner after cleansing your face. I know it was weird to me at first too but this is more liquid texture than my usual toner. When I purchased this, they gave a pack of puffs as well but I use my hands and one pump instead of 3. I only been using this for 2 weeks but so far so good! 

I love mugwort masks as much as hyaluronic acid masks. But this Illi's Mugwort Calming mask fit is a bit too fat for me... I was looking forward to this mask because Illi is known for its oriental medicine ingredients. If you have a small face, this mask might be not so fitting for you too. But despite the fit, it's quite moisturizing!

I bought this for my boyfriend's sister and she can't stop talking about this sunscreen. It leaves a light citrus scent which fades quite quickly. It doesn't leave a white cast either because it has a peachy texture for a brightening effect. 

I am always on the hunt for a good face sunscreen. I prefer the ones who leave no white cast after applying it and Goodal's Mild Protect Natural Filter Sun Cream SPF 50+ PA+++ is one of them! I have been using it for more than a month and so far, I believe it's a good everyday sunscreen. If you're staying outdoor for awhile, I would not recommend this sunscreen. It's not sweatproof. 

I used to use Maybelline Baby Skin Primer and Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer until I bought VDL's Lumilayer Primer Fresh. This is not the original formula, and this one is more hydrating than its predecessor. Bonus point for its multi-purpose function: you can also use it as a highlighter in your cheekbones!

Rubber masks used to be found only in spa previous years ago. Now the brand Lindsay brings this luxury to the masses with her masks. This lavender rubber mask is a delight at-home spa mask for people who needs to brighten and smooth their skin. It feels different from the normal mask because the powder becomes rubber after mixing with water. I highly recommend this if you are in a hunt to try new masks! 

Amore Pacific's Treatment Enzyme Peel is one of the BEST of the BEST enzyme exfoliators I ever tried. It's gentle and no harsh beads that some drugstore brands think it works.. You only need a little bit and pour water on it and massage on skin. I use this twice a week! 

I wanted to love this as much as the people love this as their cult favorite first cleanser. It was only okay to me though. Nothing spectacular. I prefer Laneige or Shu Uemura cleansing oils over this.

During my recent trip to Sephora, I picked a couple of Boscia sheet masks and this one did not disappoint at all. It definitely hydrates the skin afterwards, leaving very soft skin to touch! The camellia (tsubaki) oil and the vitamin E from the mask must be working well! I believe people who have very dehydrated skin should pick this up to try!

This is an affordable and effective snail mucin mask. It helps to soothe, protect, and heal the irritated and damaged skin. I use it when I feel a bump on my skin occured (not acne) due to a dust allergy for instance. It is pretty hydrating and the mask stays in place! 

Have you ever felt you needed a product to restraint you from touching your acne pimples but at the same time to heal your pimple as well? Ladies and gentlemen, this is the product you have been waiting for: CosRX's Acne Pimple Master Patch. Everytime I have an acne pimple that just popped up on my skin, I put this hydrocolloid patch on it and leave it on overnight. The next morning, the patch sucks up all the gunk out so it increases the speed to heal faster. I often go out with this patch on my face during the day as well when I don't have makeup on to run errands. It's barely noticeable! 

Natural BHA Skin Returning A-SOL is a hydrating toner that contains AHA, natural BHA, hyalauronic acid, tea tree extract. It also has 60% black bee propolis which helps prevent acne. This toner aims to hydrate your skin, to prevent breakouts, to remove impurities and to help control sebum. I'm a huge fan of propolis products and this one is definitely high in my list as well. If you use it, make sure you wait at least 15-30 minutes before moving on to your next skincare step. Avoid Vitamin C products when using this as well!

Vitamin C is the one of the best ingredients out there to treat hyperpigmentation (aka dark spots or sun spots). Klairs' Freshly Juiced Vitamin C serum contains 5% Vitamin C concentation. Some people put it all over their face but I prefer using it as a spot treatment where you are most prone to get sun spots (on the cheeks for instance). You must stick to it for a couple of months to see actual results though. No such thing as miracle serum!

Products that contain BHA can help reduce blackheads. The Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid is a great option. It is a chemical exfoliant with 4% Betaine Salicylate, which is an ingredient that clears and prevents blackheads. This exfoliator goes deep inside your pores to dissolve blackheads. Please read the instructions prior using it because many users have misused this product with other products in conjuction. 


CosRX's Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence is an essence (or serum) with 96% snail secretion. It's good for those who needs to regenerate their skin from acne scars or blemishes. I typically use it after washing my face and applying toner. I have been using it for over 2 months now and I haven't broken out from it. Snail secretions must be doing a good job to my skin!

Despite the fact that alcohol is 5th from the ingredient list, this mask still delivers hydrating properties. It didn't irritate my skin (although I tend to avoid products with alcohol). I picked this up because I always loved Mamonde rose water, but if you want a hydrating mask, there are better alternatives out there from Leaders or Mediheal for instance.

I used to like this cleanser a lot UNTIL I found its younger sibling: Shiseido Perfect Speedy Perfect Whip Facial Wash. Instead of use tools to foam the cleanser, you just pump the foam out and voila. If you love this cleanser, definitely check the upgraded version. It saves you time (and time is money)! 

When a lady's best friend T.O.M. (Time of the month) arrives, hormonal acne can occur. I use this before and during that period of time to calm my hormonal acne/bumps on my face. Roses have calming/healing properties and I find this mask do calm my hormonal acne. Definitely a mask to try if you're looking for one to calm your hormonal acne! =)

This MBD black pearl mask never failed me from achieving this inner glow on my skin before an event or a date. Not only this mask is affordable, but it also really brightens and moisturize your complexion. This mask is always included in my repurchase list (unless they change the formula!).

For daily masks, I prefer Japanese brands like Lululun do a better job than their Korean competitor brands. This pack of masks really does moisturize your skin and have no scent and no addictives which is definitely a bonus for me. Don't expect anything more than moisturizing properties because its fairly cheap for sheet masks.
