I was interested in this product because my rosacea and acne-prone skin doesn't tolerate the suffocation I get with most moisturizing products. I've avoided some of the superlight and gel-type moisturizers recommended because they contain formaldehyde-releasing ingredients. When I heard about this product and subsequent sampling program, I jumped at the chance. My skin is very flaky from acne treatments and is hypersensitive to boot.

THE GOOD: This lilac-colored lotion is superlight, applies easily and smoothes over my flakiness with no apparent oily residue. It provides a nice barrier for application of other products, namely foundation or sunscreen. I get no breakouts from it which, for me, is a miracle.

THE BAD: This lotion is heavily fragranced -- so much so that I sneezed repeatedly for several hours after application. The fragrance does not dissipate over time. It also burned my skin after application and gave me a papule -- even after I had applied Metrocream.

Why, do you ask, do I give this product a "2" instead of a "1?" If a user isn't extremely sensitive and it doesn't create breakouts, perhaps it has a customer base. I don't know what Lauder was thinking when it added so much fragrance. I don't see it surviving in the marketplace in its current formulation. continued >>
