Doctor Birch Bai's comment on Angel-Lisa (quoted from her communication with one her doctor friend Ying)
I think you did the right thing to return your 3 bottles of the expensive facial creams. As you know, I was a professor of dermatology in a high ranking teaching hospital in China. I am not absorbed in by cosmetic products' prices or brand names. The quality/beauty of the skin is actually largely decided by a person's congenital/natural character -- fine or rough, sensitive to pigmentation or not, easier be repaired or scarred. Of course, continue taking care your skin during your lifetime also plays a key role in preventing it from further damage. Our skin, like any other internal organ, needs a healthy microenvironment — that can be done by absorbing nutrients from the epidermis's stratum basale (basal layer) and stratum corneum (surface layer) — through it unsafe substances would make their way into our body as well. As I know, some expensive cosmetic products in the market contain unsafe chemicals like parfum, limonene, phthalates, phenoxyethanol, or parabens. I am not certain if genetically modified products like some bio-factors or stem-cell products would be effectively absorbed by our skin or if it is safe for our body if they are absorbed. I believe in natural products, especially unmodified healthy natural products. Angel-Lisa skin care set is made from Caribbean Sea's gold seaweed, which is the local residents' health enhancing food, and rich in vitamins, minerals and fatty acids, and contains lots of botanical extracts, essential oils, collagen, and vitamins with powerful anti-aging properties. As the inventor Dr. Tao and her chemist/engineer declare that the majority of the ingredients are purely natural and all ingredients are cruelty-free and excellent for skin and whole-body health, after I tried it for two years, I believe it and I can say it is the best among all skin care products I have tried. You may try -- the facial wash smells so gentle, fresh and natural; the mask gives you an immediate tightening feeling, and the effect lasts much longer; the essence's shining and moisturized character's will impress you very much, the nourishing cream makes you just want to use it day and night, the day lotion not only gives you such a natural pleasure from its smell and smooth touch, but also has sunscreen and spot-covering effects....... The final impressing thing for me is that this set is for a worthy cause and the gold seaweed only grows in Belize's unspoiled sea, which is truly fresh and the most beautiful thing I ever have heard. Please try them, then tell me your thoughts.
