    I've just bought ..

    Advanced Stop Signs serum - any comments on this one? Will it give me zits?

    Moisture Surge Extra - this seems to be working quite well for me - got rid of the flakiness around my nose (La Mer was no help). It's very light & I like how it dries to a matte finish after a few minutes.

    Gentle Shampoo - This is pretty cheap. I paid just slightly over $10 for it. Smells okay & I find I don't need to apply conditioner after.

    I am always walking next door to test the texture of all the creams & the Deep Comfort hand cream feels so good! Really comforting! Don't think I'll be buying it though cos the scent didn't particular catch me. I like them "smelly"!

    Should I try the Total Turnaround? I think I need a aha/bha skincare item in my regime ...

    Howsabout their eye creams? Rants/raves?

    I remember that many years back, I used to like Moisture Surge. I used it as a mask and it is pretty good and makes my skin smoother and more hydrated.

    Turnaround didn't work for me. No breakouts but no effect either. Estee Lauder's Idealist was better for me but the effect wear off after a while too...

    Hey why do u need a AHA/BHA huh? U have clogged pores meh? I thought prolonged use of AHA/BHA is not very good. It will make your skin very sensitive.

        i like the MSE very light, and gets rid of my flakies - especially in the winter when i have them at the tip of my nose. i applied them on top of makeup, it just sank right in, and my nose was flake-free all day! i was majorly surprised.

        i switched from the TTVSR to PC's BHA actually. it's nice, i used the one for skins type I/II and it was creamy and sparkly .. but it did nothing for my skin in the long run. it makes your skin feel really smooth, but it only does when you've got the TTVSR on. once you wash your face it's gone!

        the stop signs serum didn't break me out, it made no difference to me, i think i'll keep this until when i'm older and see real fine lines. if you can tolerate the cream version, get that, it lasts a whole lot longer!

              Would the Moisture Surge Extra be suitable for my oily and dehydrated skin?

              Been nursing a bad boot of flu recently and this seem to make my skin very dehydrated and flaky but still oily.. yucks...


              So any recommendations? I use Kose 's Vita Oasis at night but not in the day since it dun really get absored very well.

                Emergency mask contains BHA.....may help to unclog pores abit.

                  Facials, facials, facials!! (Never used to believe in them but I'm a believer now! You just gotta find the right facialist.)

                  I had some oil clogs and my skin was all blotchy and icky after a hard week at work....went for my usual facial yesterday, and my facialist slapped on an algae mask after that....lo and behold, today my skin is glowing, oil clogs all gone with no scars (thanks to her skilful extraction), and my skin feels really firm and plumped up. Best of all, the texture is really fine now. I'm really starting to believe that it's essential to invest in good facials!

                    Hey, thanks so much for the sweet compliment but pictures LIE! You'll change your mind if you see me in real person. My skin is acting real horrible, especially lately. It's got red blotches all over - looks like it's sensitivity to something - must be the dust flying around at work that's causing it.
