Not So Beautiful...

Rating: 2/5

The Face Shop's Beautiful Jeong Yeon Cleansing Foam was actually a gift from a friend who went to Korea. I tried this because Koreans have such lovely skin and I was wondering if this facial wash would do me good. Hmm... I think my face became a bit dry but ironically, I also had big pimples, read: acne! *eep!* I panicked and so I switched back to Shiseido The Skincare Extra Gentle Cleansing Foam. I was able to avert the growth of some acne but there is one that survived and now looks more like a giant mole mocking me every time I look in the mirror.

The scent is overpowering as well. If you like the scent I suppose you would like it. I am really not into facial wash and other facial products with overpowering scents but I like Lush *wahaha!* Go figure! I am a very confused person...

The packaging is very simple and practical, this comes in a big size so it will last a really long time. Mine will last longer than intended... I think I can use it as a body wash and a hand soap since it smells nice.

In fairness, I really have been staying awake far too long, of course this could be the reason too but as my sister argued, this is not the first time I have lost sleep but this is the first time in a really long time that I have had a geyser on my face. *eek!*

This is all... I am not discouraging you from trying this, all I am saying is that this is not for me. :)

Ox na Ox

Rating: 4/5

I have been using Strivectin Anti-Oxidant for a month now. It is supposed to get rid of radicals and soften lines on the face. I think it really softens the lines. I really enjoy using this. I do not know though if I really need it yet and if I will buy another tube if I empty the tube since there is something that I am really itching to try. This has a very subtle scent, it is immediately absorbed, easy to apply and does not have harsh reaction with my Olay Regenerist night and day cream. It is also very economical because a little goes a long way. After applying this the skin feels velvety smooth and so it's easier to apply the moisturizer.

Hmm... while I am writing this, I am beginning to ponder whether I can really live without this tube or not... hehe...

I have not been getting much sleep lately and so my eyebags are sooh dark again! I am now trying out Shiseido BioPerformance for the undereyes again hoping that it can do wonders for me. Today is the first day I am trying it. I am using it with StriVectin SD for the eyes.
