I love this moisturizer. I'm in my mid forties and don't have lines or wrinkles. I love knowing that the sunscreen in this product will keep my skin young as long as possible. This is definitely not just for the young girls. It goes on smooth and has just the lightest pleasant scent.
I used to use this without any problem or breakouts but after a winter of not using it at all, my face suddenly broke out with all these tiny little bumps on my forehead and it burned like heck. Weird since it worked so well before.
I was using Clarisonic and First Aid Beauty radiant pad before putting it on. It could be the parabens that finally wreak havoc at the end of its shell life or FAB pad or the combination of both. I think it's the combination of both because of the acids (that's supposed to be mild anyway...) in FAB pads.
Will update this later.
This truly is a great moisturizer. I haven't used it as much this winter because I do not need the SPF at work and it is quite pricey. With that said - outside in the summer sun this is my go to product. I feel confident that my skin will not get sunburned and know that it is hydrating for my dry skin. It creates a great base for my make up to sit on and helps it stay all day.
The review is based on the deluxe sample (0.5 oz/15gr) of Beifait Multi-Vital SPF30
I used this cream approximately used Beinfait for 16 days. The creme has got a soft powdery smell of classic French perfumery and dissipates fast. Although the texture appears to be light, the moisturiser felt filmy on my face and clogged pores around the mouth area.
I was really confused at first as to whether it was a moisturizer or a sunscreen, but I use it as a moisturizer. I got a deluxe sample of this from Sephora and didn't have much expectations of it. However, it's a very nice moisturizer in that it doesn't break me out and hydrates my skin very well without causing it to be oily. I ended up buying a full size product. This is a great alternative for putting both a moisturizer and sunscreen everyday, which feels very heavy and causes my face to become oily very quickly. This feels very light on the skin. Love it!
I got a deluze sample from sephora and I absolutely love this product. It goes on light and smooth and doesn't leave any residue or stickyness on the skin. The light fragrance is zoo nice. It reminds me of my mom's creams when I was a child. And you don't smell the SPF like other creams. I really really like it, but it's just too expensive for my budget.
I really love this moisturizer. It has no "corrector" in it so its not going to correct fine lines or unevenness of skin tone. This is great for teens and girls in their 20s, 30s that just want to keep their skin hydrated and protected from the suns harmful rays. You do NOT need a lot of this product. Very little goes a long way. For the girls who are saying they find it greasy, you're putting too much on your face! It's a very hydrating moisturizer so a little goes a long way :)
Luckily, this came in a sample for me. I typically don't like Lancome products for myself, but this cream is very smooth, has a high SPF, and smells pretty nice. Not chemical at all. I think I'm going to buy the full size once my deluxe sample runs out!
I purchased this product to use for my upcoming vacation in Florida. I decided to try it our before the trip. I am so glad I did~scary in one word!!! Within the first hour I noticed my skin felt like sandpaper, my skin started to itch and felt bumpy. Throughout the day at work my skin did not feel right. By the time I got home after diiner with some friends(and they coomented that my skin looked red on my neck and chest area ), well I washed my face and it was worse. Went to sleep and this morning awoke to a NIGHTMARE, it was worse; I thought I had chicken pox!!!! Called the doctors and was told I had an alergic reaction to my new cream! Benadryl and warm compress is all I could do. So day #2, sick day from work, and looking and feeling miserable. Hopefully it will pass within a few days, stated the doctor. Please be careful using this product, first time in 30 years of using Lancome products that I had a problem so severe.
I've been using this for the week since I got it as part of a GWP. I love how soft it makes my dry skin, and my foundation applies easily over it. I extract it from the jar while it's in my drawer, in an effort to prevent loss of antioxidants. Somewhat, anyway.
As long as I can get Bienfait Multi-Vital free I'll be happy to use it, but I'm not spending the $$$ to buy it. Not when I can get Clinique's Broad Spectrum spf 30 for face, which also has lots of antioxidants and is in a tube, at only $21.
