I got mine (again) from Stephanie, a skincare junkie like myself heehee, she is the author of Diary of a Product Junkie ^^

She was like, "these are for you!!!". It's nice when beauty bloggers hang out together and we exchanges stuffs ^^ well anyway, here's my review.





Since I only have samples and it's for two usage, I wont be dreaming of giving you a full review and explain how it changes me. It's just going to be a short review of the first 2 usages. I found the oils to be very light and unscented. They are oils alright but I can use it day and night. I use it at night for the first time, followed by a moisturizer, and it just smooths everything out, the feeling is very good on the skin. It create a glisten on the skin and I thought, "Oh boy, it's gonna be oily in the morning.". It's not.

Far from oily the skin feels moist, supple, without any traces of grease on the skin. Like everything absorbed very well. No oily skin in the morning, no dryness, sticky or whatsoever. Like the skin become healthier overnight. I can clearly say why this product is a hit. It create a balance on the skin, so it would look like a baby's skin, where it have moisture retain inside but no feeling of residue. Just soft and smoother skin.

I can't say anything for my laughing lines or other lines, but overall within one usage there are improvements on the skin from the side of moisture/hydration and comfort.

Then, I use it in the morning to test about the ability to be used during day time and under makeup. It blends very well in the day time as if it was night time. I found no difficulties with makeup, no greasy feeling nor oily, even on the t-zone. This stuff is cool!

Will I use them again? Definitely!
