I'm hooked onto the site! I wish there are way more interesting stuff to sample!
The stuff I've gotten this time: Eucerin SkinRegulating CremeGel (which was missing from the previous package), BIO ESSENCE Bio Cell Repair Rejuvenating Serum w PP, LOGONA Clear Skincare, BIO ESSENCE Marvel Mask & BIO ESSENCE Radiant Youth Essence.
Reviews: 1) Eucerin SkinRegulating CremeGel I was surprized that this has a slight fragrance as the sebum reducing cleansing gel did not have a fragrance. But its rather light-weight in texture and goes on pretty well on my skin. The only drawback is that it leaves a little greasy residue and not an instant matte finish. I have to blot once after I've applied it on before it controlled the oil on my face for the entire day. I prefer the Vichy Anti-Imperfection Regulating Care!
2) BIO ESSENCE Bio Cell Repair Rejuvenating Serum w PP Though the texture is a little thick but its very light after you have smoothed it out on your skin. It takes a while to get absorbed and left a little greasy residue after it has been absorbed. But after I've blot it away with a piece of facial tissue, it sure did leave my skin really soft! It could be a serum I might invest in soon! This has also gone into my 'Wish-List'! Totally worth trying! Go grab your sample!
3) LOGONA Clear Skincare The facial scrub gel was pretty alright. The exfoliating beads were gentle on the skin and did a pretty good job. As for the Moisture Fluid, it was a little greesy and takes a slightly longer time for my skin to absorb. Nothing fantastic in my honest opinion.
4) BIO ESSENCE Marvel Mask The worst facial mask I've ever used.The tingling sensation was very uncomfortable, the scent was weird and it look a really long time to dry. I read reviews that it was difficult to peel off so I tried a light layer on one side of my face and a thicker layer on the other. Regardless of how much product was used, both sides was extremely difficult to peel off. I end up scratching it off and using toner (had to soak the entire cotton pad) to get it off my face. A real dissapointment.
5) BIO ESSENCE Radiant Youth Essence When I first applied it, I felt that it was so oily and wanted to wipe it off but during the time I took to grab a piece of facial tissue, it was absorbed almost instantly into my skin and my skin felt sooooooooooooo smooth after it was absorbed by my skin! Not sure how effective it is in terms of rejuvenative skin cells to give a supple, youthful skin but I'm definitely gonna put this into my 'Wish-List'! This is definitely worth trying!

I love the Eucerin range actually, it works great for me. Clinique was good too but Eucerin is so much cheaper. Anyway 1)Eucerin SkinRegulating CremeGel is good, but it's sticky. You know what I mean right? I don't think it's so much greasy than sticky. It makes my foundation stick too when I apply it on top. I just tried the hydro-protect fluid and it definitely has a better texture and leaves my face matte and smooth. I'm not sure if it'll be better with controlling breakouts though.
Btw, do you use any facial masks? Any recommendations? =)
I prefer Vichy actually. it gets absorbed pretty fast and leaves an instant matte finish. :)
Oh, if your moisturizer is sticky or greasy, take a piece of facial tissue and lightly blot your face before your foundation if you dont like the sticky feeling.
I'm using the biotherm biopur balancing purifing mask and elizabeth arden deep cleansing mask. For something not too strong and on days when I'm alternating my deep cleasing masks (the biotherm is a deep cleansing mask too), I'll use The Face Shop Tomato Mask Pack. Really good for acne prone skin. ;)

hey kimoko i have found out the best way to remove marvel mask. After applying the mask using fingers, keep the mask on your fingers... after 30mins while the mask on your fingers becomes sticky.. tap on your face mask to gently peel it off.... everything will form into a lump of blu-tack...
