5/10/08: i am now starting to use clinique stay-matte sheer pressed powder. it's oil free, allegery-tested, fragrance free, and is really great on my skin.
8/18/08: if you're sunburned, bareminerals works good. i got sunburned yesterday and had to switch to my sister's bare minerals. :T
10/12/08: Panoxyl & Differin are working so well. I'm currently only using Clinique's Perfectly Real Compact Makeup, lightly.
12/2/08: My face is soo clear now. :] GET DIFFERIN, PEOPLE!
3/6/09: Yay for MAC concealer, Lancome Dual Finish Pressed Powder, and BareMinerals Warmth. :)
