Hey everyone!

I am ALWAYS up for trying new products,

so I jumped on the website and purchased the following:


The products, left to right:
Advance Sunscreen , Acne Serum & Jasmine Rice Bran Scrub.



REVIEWS
All products state that they were made in Thailand.


- Small size, it's only 30mL

- I have not tested this product out because after I tried one of Shiseido's sunscreens I got a major allergic reaction - so many pimples popped up on my face! (I will review it in more depth at a later date.) So I am scared of trying anymore sunscreens at this point.

- So when I get the guts, I will try this out!
- The texture is creamy and doesn't seem oily - powder-ish

1/5

- 30mL

- It has a pleasant scent, not quite sure what it smells like... a mix of lavender & roses?
- Smooth texture
- Hygenic packaging
- I tried this over several days & I got allergic to it, so no no no... broke me out a bit
Jasmine Rice Bran Scrub
1/5

- 30g
- It smells very weird.... very off to me. I do not like the smell. Not really the rice smell I was expecting.
- It does not scratch the face when applied
- I got allergic to this too, more pimples for me :( boo


So, no luck with this line of products for me. :( I REALLY wanted to like it!

Here is Michelle on Youtube telling us she will be Lancome's Video makeup artist:


IQQU will be releasing a line of eyeshadows and makeup brushes in the future, and I look forward to what they look like. Might be tempted to buy some... we'll see!

  6. Hi! Thank you for dropping bye!
    I think you need to find products that suit you.
    Find out what skin type you have and start there!
    I am hoping to write a few articles on skin & skincare in the future! Stay tuned!

  7. be careful with iqqu. i heard there was a lot of controversies with that. not sure its very confusing. something about it being not fda approved for cosmetic purposes or tested idk if that is true i'm not sure if they fix that already but you can research it and determine it yourself.
