Guerlain’s Ecrin 4 Couleurs is composed of an interplay of 4 different textures: Iridescent, Matte,Velvet Satin & Metallic.
I want the Les Verts ( Green ) & Les Gris ( Beige ). Pity the packaging is not as aesthetic as Ecrin 6 Couleurs.
After more than a decade of slathering, schmearing, and sorting out other people’s products, beauty writer Elizabeth Dehn set out to create her own. She knew what she didn’t want (chemicals, cheap fillers, false promises) and what she did (nutritious ingredients, effective formulas, pretty packaging). The result is a collection of skin-perfecting products that harness the restorative and anti-aging properties of 100% natural ingredients — free of preservatives, synthetics, and the other usual suspects.
Pure and simple yet utterly effective, BY ELIZABETH DEHN is modern-day beauty at its best.
This streamline collection has everything to keep your skin looks & feels its best, naturally. The products are gentle, pampering & delivers what their promise.

My complaint? They don’t ship outside US ! How annoying, and rude.
There is a new way to keep out skin beautiful with the new BareMinerals skincare line from Bare Escentuals offering cleansers, moisturizers and facial treatments that contain no synthetic fragrances, artificial oils or parabens; all reasonable priced.
” A transformative new way of caring for your skin that’s simple, super-effective and incredibly easy to use. Powered by 100% pure RareMinerals Active Soil Complex, enjoy increased cell turnover, fewer fine lines and wrinkles and the famous bareMinerals Naturally Luminous glow. “
There are 3 different sulfate-free cleansers to help keep skin cleansed.
Purifying Facial Cleanser -Removes makeup dissolves impurities and rebalances skin for a soft, smooth complexion. Skin is left perfectly clean, instantly hydrated and renewed.
Deep Cleansing Foam -A luxuriously rich cleanser deep cleans pores and lifts away impurities.
Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser -This delivers a potent concentration of ingredients for a brighter, smoother complexion with noticeably smaller pores.
The Deep Cleansing Foam is a water-activated foam cleanser in a tube. In addition to the ActiveSoil Complex, there’s avocado oil, starfruit, and grape seed oil for added antioxidant protection and skin therapeutic benefits. Luxuriously foaming, this cleanser only requires a small amount ( pea size ) for a creamy, dense foam that cleans ( averagely ). The aroma is non cloying & rather acceptable for its price. However, it doesn’t rinse of completely and I could still feel some residue after vigorous rinsing. It doesn’t leave my complexion sparkly clean, instead, it can makes your skin taut if you’ve drier skin.
I think this cleanser is just an average, affordable cleanser that had been over raved. Due to its creamy foams, I find this excellent to be used as a shaving cream, leaving your skin smooth & firm ( I mean taut & toned ).

This night cream rocks! Extremely regenerating & nourishing, yet incredibly light & refreshing. The only night cream that is non occlusive, non greasy yet manages to plump, firm & iron out those annoying pillow creases on my face the next morning.
Literally does what a steam iron does to wrinkled linen ( Okay, slight exaggeration here ).
