Clinique Anti-blemish Solutions 3-step System


They say to keep using this and it will eventually give you less blemishes. The first couple of weeks, these actually break me out. Well I have like a spot on each side of my cheek. It’s just the weirdest thing. I continue to use them though cause I don’t want to waste them. I got these at $39, so you know that’s money. 

The cleanser is a foam, I usually use 2-3 pumps cause I find that it’s quite little. I’m sure a pump is enough, but I don’t feel comfortable with just a little foam. It cleanse alright. No squeaky clean feel. So it’s quite nice. 

Clarifying lotion is ok. There will always be a layer of white settling on the bottom of the bottle. Not sure if I have to keep shaking the toner before use or something. The white residue should be the anti-blemish solution. Anyway, the toner is just ok. 

The moisturiser is an all over clarifying treatment. Not sure if I’m suppose to use a moisturiser after, but I just take it as this is it. It’s a nice texture. I like it.  It appears quite oily at first, but eventually it settles and my face will look matte. So it’s a good moisturiser for anyone with oily skin. It gives me the hydration without my skin feeling oily. Also, I think this works on my skin as after the spots on the cheeks disappear, my skin actually is quite clear. Except on those hormonial time. 

So all in all, I’m quite pleased with the set. Plus it’s a good set for travelling too. I wouldn’t buy the full size though. I just don’t feel as excited using these as I should. I’m sure there are other products that I will rave more.

Morocco Ghassoul Pore Solution Foam Cleanser

I like this as it’s very foamy. It’s a good cleanser and doesn’t dry out my skin. You don’t really a lot to clean your whole face. But if I don’t note down the points of this cleanser after using, I would totally forgot about it. So it’s not something I would be recommending anyone. I like it, just not impressive enough. 

Ole Henriksen Empower Foaming Milk Cleanser

This is a cleansing milk which foam up. So it’s very soothing on the face. I like it enough, but I don’t see anything special about it. It removes makeup well and doesn’t make my face dry. But the thing is, my face is back to being oily after about 6 hours. So this is not really meant for oily skin. It’s alright, but it is not targeted as such. 

Nothing much else to say about this. 

Perfect Whip

This was quite a rage all over Taipei. It’s a product from Japan, but you can pretty much see it everywhere in Taipei. Also, based on “what to buy in Taiwan” blog posts, this is one of the item that’s recommended. They say that it’s more expensive in Singapore. Anyway, in Taipei you can get it about TW99 for bulk pack. But that’s at a promo price. So normally it should be TW129. 

I get why people like this. It’s very foamy. You literally need a pea size for your whole face. It smells kind of nice too. I don’t really get what is the scent but it’s pleasant. 

In term of cleansing, it’s alright. Gentle and basically suitable for any skin type. I never try to remove any waterproof mascara with this so I don’t know how well it can perform. But it’s good for a daily cleanser. 

First Impression: Chia Seed Fresh Cleansing Foam

I find that this doesn’t foam up as much as I hope it would. So it doesn’t do such a good job in cleansing my face. I still have a lot of residue on my lids. The actual product is probably better. But given this, 1ml, I wasn’t impressed. So this is a no for me. 

Holika Holika Soda PoreCleansing Cleansing Foam


I was just attracted to the word soda and pore cleansing is definitely up my alley. Do I like this? I wasn’t a fan at first, but I guess my skin kind of get used to it. Then again, actually no, I don’t really like it. But I don’t hate it either. It’s a good foaming cleanser. But I find that it can emphasis on my pores instead of cleansing it. So it’s quite a bugger about that. Plus my skin do get oily using this. Therefore I don’t really it. 

Jeju Volcanic Pore Scrub Foam

 

I just wanted to try something from innisfree. So I got this cause I need a new scrub. And it’s average. I like that it’s a mild scrub. And it will lather on to foam. So that’s like having 2 in 1. I like it even though it’s quite just like that. Nothing really interesting about it. I don’t think it really cleanse the pores very well. But it’s nice to have some scrub to clean your face sometimes. I only been using it like once every 3/4 days. So I don’t think much of a different on me. I just think that this is gentle enough to be able to use daily. 

Sebamed Antibacterial Cleansing Foam

A foam cleanser. It’s not bad. Doesn’t strip off your face, so it’s nice. Will not remove waterproof mascara, but will cleanse off face makeup. For acne? I don’t think so. It is not that effective in combating acne off your face. But overall as a face wash, a foam at that, it is quite good. It is gentle. That is important. Deep cleansing? Not really. Or it doesn’t seems like it is. 

So it’s a good average gentle cleanser.  

A mini cleanser review

20140306-154748.jpg
Pond’s Skin Mattifying Facial Foam for oil control. This has micro beads even though it is not stated on the packaging. I guess you could look pass that as it’s just barely noticeable. The face wash itself is ok, a bit stripping after the rinse but wasn’t as extreme as the other Pond’s cleanser I tried. It is cheap and does help with oil control. It’s just that when you wash your face, it doesn’t feel as fancyful as others. Cause I guess it’s inexpensive so it just have that thought with you.

Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Wash. It doesn’t foam up even though I feel like it should. It doesn’t strip off moisture from my face, so that’s nice. But it breaks me out just like the toner. So I guess there is something in the ingredient that I can’t use, but I’m just too lazy to check.

Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash is something I don’t like at all. It doesn’t do its job. It doesn’t clean. I don’t feel clean using this. Even though I use a lot of it, but it like just slide of my face without doing anything.

Deep Clean Revitalizing Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub

Yes I bought this cause it is pink. And I love the smell of grapefruit, it’s just so refreshing.

I don’t know if this can be a scrub as it is super gentle. It really is a foaming cleanser with soft ball bits. I like to use this in the morning as the scent really wakes me up. It cleans well, just like any normal cleanser I guess. The problem with this is I tend to squeeze out more than necessary. So 100g is very fast gone. Wouldn’t purchase this again, as it is not a scrub and it doesn’t do anything better than most cleanser, cost $13.90 and very fast being used up. But I really do like the scent of grapefruit.
