overwhelming floral scent!!! ugh. Update: I have gotten used to the scent for some unknown reason. Maybe my nose is getting weaker with age! Wish this came in a tube instead of a jar. This makes my skin look radiant and firmer. Makes me look younger. I don't think this protects against UVA. I believe it only protects against UVB, correct me if i'm wrong. But I think that's what makes it gentle and non-irritating.
Shanstuff did a great review for this item. I also recieved as a GWP, so I dont' know how much the large jar of this costs, but I assume it is a lot :)
Really like the lite consistency and the ease with which it goes on. Smooth and sinks right in. Feel like its a good make up base, and I've actually stopped using foundation every day b/c I feel like my skin looks so darn good (if I do say so myself!)! Feel like this isn't just moisturizer but a part of a larger skin care regime that will really aid in my complextion long term.
I actually like the scent, which I feel is pretty light and clean-smelling. I'm really happy with the sample size (a .5 oz jar) b/c it will last long enough for me to really really tell if it is worth the price of a whole jar. I'm sure it will last for quite awhile.
This is a decent daytime moisturizer. My foundation glides over effortlessly on top and its just enough moisture not to make me an oily mess. I personally love the scent even though I can understand people being put off by it because it IS pretty strong. Like others, this was in their latest GWP.. I have a good .05 oz jar to test for awhile. Not sure if I'd purchase the full size because there are probably other moisturizers out there that do a better job for the price. I'll definately use this up for now.
This is a great daytime moisturizer with SPF 15. Unlike many other SPF moisturizers, it doesn't leave my skin looking shiny by the end of the day. In addition, it moisturizes my normal-dry combo skin all day...no tightness towards mid-to late afternoon the way many leave me.
According to Lancome, "High Resolution Refill-3X complex helps boost the synthesis of the three natural skin fillers – collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin." I don't know about all that, but I will say that my fine lines seem diminished when I use it, my skin seems plumper, and it goes on silky-smooth. It also makes a good makeup base, and holds foundation very well, both with or without primer (and anything that allows me to avoid primer is a big plus in my book).
The High Resolution line is marketed to women in their late 20's to about 40 or so...basically, those of us who aren't showing significant signs of aging yet and want to keep it that way. Therefore, this is a preventative and cosmetic treatment, not a repairative treatment. As such, it does its job very well. It plumps the skin, decreases the signs of lines and wrinkles and eases dryness while also smoothing the skin and protecting from sun damage.
Very impressed with this product. Will repurchase, assuming my skin still likes it when I run out. It's very seldom that I find a day cream that actually fits all my needs--SPF, smooth, silky feel, lasting hydration, and suitable under makeup. For that, I have to give it 5 stars!
I got a sample of this moisturizer from a GWP. I've tried quite a few moisturizers, and this one is nothing special.
First of all, I gotta say that wrinkles is not something I have to worry about (yet) so I can't really say how well it "filled" my lines. As a moisturizer, it was ok. I have really dry and sensitive skin, and I found that after a few hours, it feels like I didn't apply any moisturizer at all.
One thing that I absolutely HATED about this product was the scent. It is incredibly overwhelming and I hated how my face would smell like cheap perfume. I also noticed that after a few days I started to break out. Basically, I did not like this moisturizer at all.
i have gotten 2 of these an really love this cream! it makes my skin very smooth an really does help with fine lines, i dont have too manyy wrinkles i need to worry about yet but it does not hurt to have an early start on using items to prevent them!!
would def buy again!
This product is intended for use by somebody in their late 20's to early 40's. I use the entire line and imho its fantastic. They have a plumping action that reduces fine lines and protects from environmental damage. The day cream is not heavy or overly scented. The eye absorbs well into the eye area. The night cream is my fav its very emoillent and when I wake my skin is super soft and plump.
I also use Genefique under these products. My skin has never looked or felt better. Have had no issues with breakouts or millia. Its not cheap but the Holiday sets are a great bargain and a 1.7oz jar last forever.I would and have repurchased.
I put the price as a 5 because of its retail price, but i got this as a GWP. Its okay for me. although i do not have wrinkles at all at the moment anyways. It does nice as a moisturizing cream, nothing too special. I dont like the fragrance though, because it makes me feel like i'm just using baby lotion.
