skincare products for sensitive skin
“A lot of money for a face cloth but if you have sensitive skin like mine, it's well work the money”
silk skin care products
“this is as good as it gets for very pale + dry/combo skin. I use it with tatcha liquid silk canvas and it stays really well. all other tinted moisturizers are too warm-toned for me and transfer/move around a lot. still need to use a little concealer on acne because it's light coverage, but it covers redness well”
skincare products for combination skin
“It does the job but it’s not worth $100. I have combination skin so I use it all over my face. I’ve only used the smooth side to apply serums a couple times and I still prefer my hands over the device since there can be product waste”
skin care supplements
“did not fit my combination (oily-normal) skin - the skin relief became uneven. Perfect for neck and décolleté care”
