I purchased this product on advice from the clerk at Whole Foods, who said she uses it. I have sensitive skin and have been having trouble finding something that is not drying on my face. This product stung my face in a pronounced way. It felt like I had little knives or cuts all in my face (which may be the case unfortunately) and the product is penetrating into this and something in it is stinging. It is also not hydrating. The product has a strong herbal scent which is medicinal, and it is a bright yellow colour which stays a bit when you rub it in (although I didn't find this aspect of it unpleasant). I had to wash it off 10 minutes after putting it on and put on my Life Brand sunscreen which, at $5 for a big bottle, is the only thing that is somewhat neutral and soothing on my skin that I currently have in the house. I think this product goes overkill with the herbal ingredients. Its ingredient list is generally quite good in terms of having few weird chemical things, which is why I bought it, but it does have alcohol in it, so maybe that is what is stinging my skin. Anyway, I think this might be an all right cream for someone who doesn't have sensitive skin, but if you do, beware!

I hoard this whenever Wholefoods has them on sale. I use this on my face after I was diagnosed with cancer. I had to get brain radiation and that mean losing my hair and itchy scalp. But this cream saved me. I applied it to my forehead after each radiation treatment. And when I got bald, to my scalp. I didnt get radiation burn or burnt scalp ans went through 1 tube. I know it’s quite expensive to be used for such a large area such as the scalp. But it was all worth it. I didnt even get scalp irritation. For the face, this also works great. But you have to get used to the rose scent. This is my favorite moisturizer.

Currently the range is called “Eye definer” and my pencil eyeliner is in #00 Nude. I bought this because of the shade - light cream “nude” beige, ie not the stark white type which I find never flattering and so oldschool (eyeroll). Also, because of Dr.Hauschka skincare brand. And to check if my HG light nude Babor eyeliner still is the best choice (it is). So, the shade is noticeably lighter and cooler-toned than Babor’s which makes the Hauschka less flattering on the eyelid and the inner corner (where my Babor gives a nice uniform color correction and a flattering shade lift). Mind, i’m fair - nc10. In that, shadewise the Hauschka would look good only on the lower inner rim (like a kohl). So it is definitely not remotely as versatile as the Babor. The texture is waxier (in a bad way) and doesn’t blend well (like, stippling with a finger), the longevity is poor. It feels uncomfortable on the inner rim - too waxy. So, it is bad in every way that the Babor is so good.The Ingredients of my eyeliner reminded me of my beloved JI’s pencils (which are perfect but the range lacks a similar nude shade) and deceivingly promised a comparable quality:Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil, Mica, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Canola Oil, Sclerocarya Birrea Seed Oil, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Pyrus Cydonia Peel/Fruit Wax, Diatomaceous Earth (Solum Diatomeae), Glyceryl Caprylate, Anthyllis Vulneraria Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Bark/Leaf Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Fragrance (Parfum)*, Citronellol*, Geraniol*, Linalool*, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

I kept forgetting to review this bronzer, I can now cross this off my list. I have used this for since I was in my twenties and I am now 64((ouch!) and I love it, the color is lovely, it's warm without being red or orange. In the bottle, it looks straight up bronze/brown on the face is whole other matter, it really is translucent and I use a dime/nickel size amount. Here is what I really love it for...drum roll please, on my lips, I know of no one else who does this but it looks smashing. It has the tan/brown/bronze and a hint of rose tint, it is so beautiful. There is a soft fragrance, which I love, but if you are sensitive to scents I would advise you to try a tester before you make a $45 investment.P.S. I find mine on eBay, be sure to ask about the expiration date, I have used mine for a decade which far too long by a mile, but it works for me and somehow there is no rancid scent. In the no-bronzer months, I keep mine is the icebox, as I do with all my oils and oil-based creams, again only in the off months, this will triple the longevity.Warning: This is in a glass bottle and I am a klutz, I transfer mine to a plastic one ounce bottle.

The only thing I could recommend this for is a very emollient base for undereye concealer. Sometimes concealers are drying, so putting something really emollient underneath helps blend out the pigments well. This eye balm is great for that. But, for the price, one could use so many other things for that purpose...As far as fine lines (my primary issue), this did nothing. It smelled good, though. It didn't soften my fine lines, it didn't reduce darkness, it didn't even really help with hydration the next day. I found this to be a very disappointing use of my funds. If you want an eye cream that actually helps with fine lines and undereye darkness, find an undereye cream with some kind of retinol in it (there are various kinds) and use it a few times a week.
