To start off with, I thought it might be good to introduce some of my true HG products. In reading other blogs, I often find it useful to see what kind of products are HG for the writers to guage how much I can relate to their reviews and recommendations.


  • Shiseido Pureness Cleansing Water: A refreshing, gentle (yet effective), and easy to use cleanser. This takes everything off, including the residue that even my Fancl Cleansing Oil and Powder miss.
  • Pond’s Age Defying Cleansing Towelettes: I have to keep a pack of these around for lazy nights. These pre-moistened cleansing cloths are the fastest, easiest way to remove all of my makeup, even waterproof. The Microdermabrasion version are great as well, but I feel these are more gentle and don’t strip away as much moisture.
  • Retin-A Micro: I use this for the breakouts I tend to get on my cheeks that cause post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. As a result, my combination/oily skin is now combination/dry. However, this has been incredibly affective against the breakouts and helps with the anti-aging process.
  • La Prairie Cellular Resurfacing Cream: I can’t use products that are too heavy or oily because they will break me out, but since my skin is now a bit drier, this cream provides the hydration I need. Even from day one, it shrinks and unclogs pores, hydrates, and improves texture overnight! It feels light on the skin and absorbs beautifully.
  • Jo Malone Vitamin E Gel: A few dabs of this in chapped or super dry spots, or mixed in with my moisturizer at night and voila! Problem solved. There’s also a Lip Conditioner that I like to leave on overnight that absorbs well and feels great.
  • ユースキンA (YuskinA): This “Medical Cream” is a spot treatment only. It is not as sticky or as heavy as Aquaphor.The Lip Cream is my favorite lip treatment. Glides on like a dream, absorbs instantly and my lips feel silky smooth after using this.
  • SK-II Whitening Source Intensive Mask: This is a cotton mask packed (and I mean dripping!) with Pitera and Vitamin C. My skin looks and feels like baby skin after using this!
  • Chanel UV Essential SPF 50: This has 17% zinc oxide and provides broad spectrum, PA+++ protection. The milky consistency applies easily and goes on completely translucent (unlike Dior). It doesn’t look/feel oily or clog my pores at all.
