In the past year my skin has gotten really dry and as a result I've been clueless about what to do. My mom urged me to try these and I was skeptical at first of putting anything this oily on my skin for fear of breaking out. But I tried it and sure enough these capsules have made a huge difference. I use one (yes, a whole one) every night and once it has sunk in (a minute or two) I put my regular moisturizer on over it. I've stopped getting the peelies and my face no longer feels as tight. And - no breakouts. Will not go without this stuff.
I must preface this review to say that i didnt try this on my face. I gave some to a girlfriend who never breaks out with perfect skin that is slightly dry. Broke her out like crazy. I decided to try this on my neck and decollete. I love the idea of the little capsules, although it took several twists to open it. this is the consistency of baby oil. I was so greasy at first, i even left oily grease fingerprints all over the counter! After 15 minutes, the product dried down and felt nice. I cant say whether this had any long term effects cause i only tried it once. I would never put this on my face since the baby oil type consistency would break out my acne prone oily skin.
I do like this product though I hate the packaging as too bulky and fussy, especially for travel. Couldn't they just put it in a bottle? I have found that it keeps lines at bay and doesn't seem to make my sensitive skin break out. A little on the pricy side so I stretch each capsule's use as long as I can.
I would just like to point out for all those who I keep hearing say that you can use one capsule more than once, that you CAN'T. These capsules are 100% preservative free, thats why they are in gelatin capsules, that why they tell you to use them within 15 minutes of opening. And FYI they ARE oil free as well.
I received a pkg. in a swap. These are really great on my dry skin. It feels oily at first but sinks right in. I usually wait about 5 minutes and then add my night time moisturizer. I like the fact that they come in little capsules.
I must be in the minority here because I used one for the first time tonight & it made my face burn. I was shocked as the ingredient list appeared harmless.
I do agree w/the others that it goes on quite oily but sinks in quickly. I'm a PPP with normal skin. I also bought their Ceramide Skin Brightener so am curious if that will burn as well.
In either event this is going back to EA tomorrow.
This is a great skincare! Eye Ceramide Capsules are great, too.
I love, love, love these! Just snip the top with cuticle scissors--the twisting recommended on the packaging really doesn't work. As another reviewer mentioned this is not a moisturizer to use on its own. I use it under my daily moisturizer and my skin looks and feels great. I have had fewer breakouts and fewer flaky patches since using these. I will definitely re-purchase.
I use the eye capsules. I used to use the Chanel anti-wrinkle firming eye cream, which did nothing for me and gave me an allergic reaction. This stuff seems to work really well around my eyes although it doesn't feel very heavy. It is like a light oil, and I was a bit surprised by the good results. I use it only in the evenings and I have noticed that my dark circles are no more, so I guess it is hydrating my eyes.
