If you read my previous post, you know that I purchased Clarisonic Plus last week. I decided to give it a week to see how it works on my skin. So, what is the verdict?

Clarisonic works much better on oily skin as compared to normal/dry skin. I have relatively oily T-zone (forehead and nose area) but normal to dry cheeks and chin.

Hello everybody! I am so excited to tell you, after careful research on site and online, I finally decided to purchase Clarisonic Plus at Sephora Oak Brook Mall, with lower tax, and my VIB 15% off coupon. After consulting with a SA for nearly an hour, I chose Clarisonic Plus instead of the classic.

Here is a picture I borrowed from Clarisonic’s Web site

Some of you may already know, I am in a forever search for the perfect eye cream. It is a good thing that I have already found the best hand cream out there. I have fallen in love with it, and decide to stay faithful to it as long as it is available on the market.

This little green tube is my new favorite. If you are seeking for a good moisturizer with antioxidants, this may very well be the one. I am on my second tube now, and I will definitely repurchase it when I run out again.

Hello ladies,

Can you believe that St. Valentine’s day is less than a week away? We are lucky this year because St. Valentine’s Day  falls on a Sunday — you can spend the entire day with your Valentine!

So…what is your plan with your sweetheart? Do you already have a gift for him in mind? It is always really hard for me to find the perfect gifts for men. So I have to do a lot of research before I purchase the perfect gift. Last year I got my bf a Godiva Valentine Bear gift set with chocolates in it and a Versace Pour Homme Eau de Toilette. This year..hmmm…I know he is going to read this post so let’s keep it a secret after he gets his gift. 😉

I am going to list some good gift ideas for you. I thought about gifts like DVDs, books etc…But they are not skin care/grooming related…after all, this is a blog about skin care/cosmetics so I am going to stay true to my blog…these products will help your man achieve a better condition for his skin, and who doesn’t like caressing a well cleaned, non-greasey face? I know you do! …so here we go:

Hi hi ladies,

I got a pretty good feedback from my readers, and it turns out that many of  you are beginners dealing with makeup and skin care  products. Most beginners tend to fall for marketing traps and purchase products because of the current trends, or they hear good things about a certain brand from others. But there are many ingredients sound nice and healthy for your skin, but actually impair your skin immune system or strip off your skin’s natural protective layer. You might not be able to notice right away, because it all happens underneath the skin surface, however years after you will see the irreversible damages.

So today I give you a list of irritating and inflamatory ingredients that fundamentally damage your skin. You want to avoid them when purchasing any beauty products (except fragrances). Watch out if the ingredients mentioned below appear at the beginning of an ingredient list.
