THE FACE SHOP (Before and After)

This is how effective the Post-Acne Nighttime Spot Eraser is.

Day 1: Night before applying spot eraser

 Day 2: In the morning

There is a visible difference. The popped pimple looks a lot smaller and it looks more healed. I guess after using it for a few more days the pimple and scar should fade dramatically.

Day 3: In the morning

It's only the 3rd day and it has almost disappeared.


Super Restortive Weekend Kit (3 Piece Set + Bag) + Clean Skin Solutions Kit (For Dry/Normal Skin)

A shot of all the Clarins products I bought.

The Creme Haute Exigence Soir Multi-Intensive Super Restorative Night Wear, (travel size) came in a super small tube, only 0.53 Oz. The product felt really rich and creamy, I guess it's because this targets people in their 50's. I didn't try the day cream yet, but I guess it should feel similar.

The Lait Demaquillant Velours Cleansing Milk smells really good, but more importantly I think it made my skin feels soft and supple. It says you can just use tissue paper to blot off the product or use the toner to clean the cleansing milk off but I always feel like I need to wash any type of cleansing product. The only thing I didn't really like about it is that it gets a little sticky.

The Lotion Tonique Toning Lotion made my skin feel really good afterward also. At first, I didn't think the smell was too appealing but after a few more uses I like it more and more.

The Eau de Confort Nettoyante Express Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser took off some of my makeup except the waterproof mascara and gel eyeliner. It eventually came off but took a lot of effort. I rather use makeup remover.

I haven't tried this yet, so I'll review when I do.

I bought these today so I don't know how I feel about these yet.

A product shot of THE FACE SHOP products I got on 05.05.2010

Nature's Gifts: Volcanic Ash Self-Heating Mask - $17
I don't know how deep cleaning this product is cause I was using a bunch of THE FACE SHOP products at the same time.  

Smart Peeling Oriental Herb - $15
I didn't really like this product that much, felt like the there is so much fragrance in this product it smells like that's all there is to it. There are little scrub beads but they're not enough to scrub anything and when I was trying to wash it off, felt like the product wouldn't come off, felt slimy.

 Black Head EX: Black Peeling Gommage - $13
This product is for getting rid of blackheads. After using this product for a few days I didn't see much of a  difference. 

Post-Acne Nighttime Spot Eraser - $15
This product is heaven!! (I already posted a before and after of how effective the product is)

Pore Minimizer Essence - $20

This product has a super strong fragrant smell. I didn't use this product religiously so I can't say how effective this product is.

Estee Lauder Skincare

Estee Lauder Prevention Set - $52 (worth over $100)

MAC Pressed Pigments

MAC Pressed Pigments

From left to right: Tan, Golden Olive, White Gold

I pressed these pigments myself. The Tan pigment is the first full size pigment I bought from MAC. The others were bought online from, since I won't be able to finish a whole jar of pigment anyway, why should I get the full size and waste money? The pigments to me look like genuine MAC pigments because I got the Blue Brown color and I compared it at the MAC store and they look identical. From they only give 1/4 teaspoon of pigment, which to me is enough to press. It just covers the bottom of the pan but it still works. If you really like the color then get 2-3 of the same color to fill the pan up a little bit more.
