No need headaches please, because this product can be easily found anywhere. I bought this just from a local drugstore @ Watsons, which is where I buy all my skincare and makeup products all the time. Now let's start with the review! First of all, there is nothing special from the packaging. Very light and thin, so it is easy to out in your handbags and carry in everywhere you go. Other than that, it looks just like any other Oxy Products. I have no comment on the scent because it doens't really have any strong smell. The blue film's texture is not like paper, but it has a latex kind of feeling, not so stretchy but very soft and thin. These really do work effectively. What I like most about this is you can use it without a mirror! When you pressed it on your oily areas, you can see the film getitng even darker blue and almost transparent, depends on the amount of oil it absorbed. However, one thing that disturbs me about this product is that they can remove makeup. So you have to press it really gently instead of rubbing it on your face. Since Oxy products are well known to fight acne, I believe this product will too. It is suitable not only for acne prone skin, but also for any skin type. But for those who have acne, keep in mind not to use the strips on regions with acne, as you might get other regions with acne as well. Before : After : This is how it looks like after using it : That's all. Thank you for reading.
I bought this at The Face Shop Pavilion which was on sale at RM58 and it includes a free refill. Packaging: Typical Korean beauty BB Cushion packaging includes the velvet sponge applicator. Very plastic but it's super light to bring along inside your handbag. Scent: It has a very light floral scent. The scent isn't overwhelming and it doesn't transfer the scent to the face. Color: Only 2 colors available. Natural Beige and True Beige however it seems like they are bringing in a wider range of colors soon including darker skin colors. Texture: Unlike other BB Cushions, this has a more matte finish since it caters for Oily/Combination skin. The texture dries really quickly so you have to work it fast on your skin. TIPS: If you would like to have a slightly more dewy skin especially for combination skin where you have dry patches, I do highly recommend that you mix in with your serum or moisturizer to the sponge. You can take out the sponge and mix in your favorite moisturizer, mix and place the sponge back in to soak into the foundation. I do highly recommend this to oily/combination skins. It's a great product for touch ups or on-the-go.
Do note that the black one is different from the white one (black one for oily/combination skin, typically for summer climate & white one is for dry skin, typically for winter climate)The puff provided is not your ordinary compact powder puff. The puff is different in a way that it doesn't soak up alot of the application.Dabbing lightly on the sponge, the consistency is just like BB creams/liquid foundation. It glides smoothly while I tried applying on my hand.As for the coverage...I'm pretty impressed that it does cover up most of my acne scars, pores and freckles.Still impress on the coverage !After 8 hours it still manage to cover up my acne scars and pores pretty well and I did not do any retouch.Although you can still see some visible spots, that's because I only applied it once. Hence I believe that it'll give a much better coverage depending on how thick or how many layers you apply.But with just one application and it cover up so much, I must give it a thumbs up !After applying it, it feels slightly sticky for me.Also, it kinda have a brightening effect (although you can't really see it in the picture) since its a Korean brand. (Many Korean makeup tend to have more of that brightening effect in their products since most Korean have super fair skin) But fret not, applying with #23 Natural Beige will not be that white as you think ! It just make your skin look less dull.Since I have very oily skin, I thought by using this magic snow cushion my face will become super oily and shiny after an hour plus. But to my surprise it didn't! So I decide to leave it on without touching up till at night.3 hours after applying,I found out that my T zone and also the area below my eyes starting to get a bit oily. But I just leave it be.8 hours after applying..My face was oily especially the T zone area, however I decided to snap a pic to show how the coverage last before I wash it off.Would I buy it again?YES ! I would continue to buy it until I could find another BB cushion that could do much better than April Skin.
I had gotten this as a sample. the full size comes in a typical benefit 'brightening" range packaging. it has lovely colors to it. the texture of the cream is thick, and is a little greasy. It had a lovely smell though. I had applied this only during the day , and only if I go out. It made my face super shiny and oily for about 4-5 hours. I could feel a thick layer on my skin which I didn't like. Thank goodness it did not cause my skin to breakout. For those reasons, I'd rather not purchase this.
This is like an essential oil only can be used at night, use two drops will be sufficient, only use this after essence or serum to make it more effective, tried on the sample, it is too oily for me, product more oil, and more sebum on next day, it is not suitable for my skin type. Too oily already so cannot use together with moisturiser.
I bought this at Innisfree with a finger cap brush that come with together . This balm can remove dirt from my face that can't be removed completely from cleanser . The balm will melt into oil when in contact with the skin . It is quite efficient to remove dirt but i did not see any great result for removing black head . This product is average for me .
I bought a trial jar from friend (she is not using it, since is it free gift so sold it to me cheaper). It is 15g. This cleansing cream is a slightly thick white colour cream with a light rose scent. I am kind of like the scent but it is greasy during and after using. Use a pea size massage on face then use a bit of water to 'blend' it to remove makeup. It turned to milky watery cream. Massage until everything is melted then rinse off with water. Use this as the first step of skin care then follow by cleanser, toner and so on. I felt the oiliness when rubbing and after rinse off, it left a layer of oil on skin. it was invisible but when touched it can feel it. Which made me feel uncomfortable and made my skin got more oily. Guess it is ideal for dry skin not combination like mine. Somemore this is soooooo expensive. No no
Got one sample to try, unlike normal sunscreen this is in white gel but very oily for my face. I have oily skin, face got shine immediately after using this. It doesn't tint my face but gives me a layer of oily, greasy cover. Not recommended.
this balm is sticky and oily when apply, rub small portion on face to melt the makeup then add a bit of water to massage, then rinse off thoroughly, it can remove makeup effectively included waterproof one, but the process is so oily and after rinse off already still can feel the greasiness, must use cleanser afterwards
got one sample pack, tried using one, it was bad experience, few two - three drops on palms then dab on face, it is colourless, this beauty oil is fast absorption but it made my face more oily than usual, i used it together with oil free moisturizer.
I have a really oily face so when i put this sunblock on it feels quite heavy and oily but I can definitely feel that through out the day under the hot sun, my face are not that oily as always. Not sure if this is a good thing. I love the smell of it though many complains that it is too strong but i like it. The good thing is although the SPF is quite high but it does not "whiten" my face like most sun block which make me look like a vampire.
Introduced by my friend last time. She said very moisture. Smell good too :) Can be purchased in most of the NR stores or online stores. It comes in a tiffany green bottle, girls' favourite colour. It has thin texture, but I do not like this because I feel oily after I apply this. Especially the next morning, my face is too oily. I do pat for better absorption but somehow I still feel oily and sticky. Price is affordable, I bought from Hermo. Not so recommended for oily skin people, but if you are dry skin, give it a try, the moisture level will amaze you.
Purchased a bottle during sales from Watsons. It has good dispenser which does not creates mess, lovely scent (not too strong) and great texture! It wasn't oily/greasy or makes your face do anything like that. Had used it at night. There wasn't any impressive effect/ obvious change (sadly). But it works well as a night moisturiser! I would not recommend it :/
It is perfect that it comes with SPF20, a bonus for day cream. However I feel this moisturizer is slightly oily for my T-zone. Perhaps because it is an anti-aging product, the texture is richer. Smell is really nice, the natural smell of immortelle flower. The packaging is quality and solid. I would recommend this for someone looking for rich moisturizer.
This sun block is really good! It can also be used as a make up base and is not oily to the skin just as it was advertised. The spf is really high too. I use this every day as a base for my foundation. It doesn't feel heavy on the skin. I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't like oily sun protector creams.
This was not a good product for me. It was too oily for my liking and it seeped into my eyes a couple of time while cleaning my eye area and it really irritated my eyes! It takes more than one cotton pad and a handful of pumps to clean off a small amount of makeup. I wouldn't recommend this product at all.
I've been using this for the past month and I find this product slightly oily. I tried using it before makeup but it leads to my makeup smudging as a result of the oiliness. It is also kind of expensive for a small amount. However, the scent is really nice and desirable. I would recommend this if you have dry skin.
Bought from online stores . Texture is smooth and creamy with a light scent . Size of this bottle is quite large but easy to carry everywhere . Benefit of this lotion are moisturizing . normally I using this lotion when I stay in air condition room . It absorption is super fast, Moisturizing effect stay longer ,keeps my skin smooth and soft . Not oily after applying this lotion , no breakout . Recommend this to oily and combination skin .
product removes makeup well but there are some cons that i do not like about it. 1) Oily greasy feel 2) Have to always shake to apply every time as the top layer of oil and botton layer of water gets separated. (Feels this takes too much time) 3) Have to use cotton pads to rub and remove the makeup 4) Feel that you have to rub quite hard and many times to remove it. Price wise is affordable but i rather got for something much easier to apply and use.
First, select the signs and symptoms of your skin
Your skin type is
Sensitive skin is prone to damage from environmental factors (wind, sun and cold weather). Your skin is often red and blotchy and allergy to cosmetics is common. Use fragrance-free facial washes and moisturisers and it's best to avoid skin exfoliants.
If your skin is sensitive, try to find out what your triggers are so you can avoid them. There are many possible reasons, but often it's in response to particular skin care products.
Your skin type is
Oiliness can change depending upon the time of year or the weather.
Your skin type is
Your skin is smooth and radiant because it reflects light evenly. Your complexion is balanced (not too oily or too dry), and you rarely have breakouts. You don't notice any changes in your skin throughout the day and can try many kinds of products without having a reaction. With no signs of oily or dry areas, the skin is soft and smooth with good elasticity and firmness. Your skin's pores are small to medium sized. It is best to use products that maintain hydration and water-based moisturisers.
No apparent oily or dry areas and skin appears balanced. It is the least problematic of all skin types. Your complexion is supple, healthy and clear with good circulation.
Normal skin can fluctuate between all the skin types, but won't do so radically or for an extended period of time. While it’s the ideal skin type, it still requires regular care to keep skin and oil production in healthy unity.
Your skin type is
Acne-prone skin can tend toward the oily side, but is often a combination of all skin types. Sometimes referred to as combination skin, acne-prone skin can also be dry, sensitive or mature. The obvious factor of acne-prone skin is raised lesions appearing on or under the skin.
Though spots can be painful and irritating, it is important to be gentle with skin. Try not to pick or squeeze spots and let them heal on their own. A natural spot treatment and a selection of natural and organic products formulated with spot treating remedies will help. Be sure to pay close attention to your diet and any external factors that may trigger spots to appear.
Your skin type is
Your skin can crack, peel, or become itchy, irritated, or inflamed. If it’s very dry, it can become rough and scaly, especially on the backs of your hands, arms, and legs.
Your skin type is
Your skin can be dry or normal in some areas and oily in others, such as the T-zone (nose, forehead, and chin). Many people have this type. Slightly different care in different areas maybe needed.
With a little tender loving care, it is possible to tame combination skin. The key to balancing oiliness and dryness is with gentle cleansers and regular exfoliating to remove dead skin cells and combat acne. Regular exfoliating could mean anywhere from daily to weekly, and it's best to let your skin decide. Water-based products are ideal.
