Although Guinot's Longue Vie Cellulaire is probably my HG for a moisturizer, Hydrazone is terrible. I think each time I use it, whether a sample tube, or the full jar, I have gotten clogged pores the next day. I forget this often, and do come back to it sometimes at night, mistaking it for LVC, since the packaging is the same.... And always the same result. As someone else mentioned, it is much too expensive for a no-frills cream anyway. I have normal to dry skin. I need a good hydrating cream. The spa lady praised Hydrazone as a good moisturizer for 'young skin'--honestly, I can't do the same. Longue vie cellulaire is much better, or creme blancheur (sp?) if you want some brightening.

This gave me major brakeouts, which is ashame because I really likes the smell and the consistancy.

I wouldn't buy it again, it's too heavy even for the evening as my skin fails to absorb it. It causes breakouts from my skin the next morning. The hydrating effect is not great. However, the scent is nice.

This is the only product by Guinot that I don't like at all. I wanted it to be light, sheer, tender and not very oily. But it was heavy, not oily, but waxy, so-so moisturizing and very bad for my skin. I stopped to use it and gave it away after it made me breakout and clogged my pores. It contains lots of sylicones, I suppose.
Will not buy again and don't recommend to people with acne-prone skin.

i think this moisturizer is really good for my oily skin, because it is water based. it balances out my face by giving it the moisture it needs without giving it too much moisture, and making it even more oily. that being said, it's not a mattifier. it doesn't make my skin completely oil free. perfect for winter.
the only problem is that this stuff is ridiculously expensive, and that i wish it came in a bottle and not a jar. otherwise, it's pretty good.
edit: it doesn't work too well in the summer because my face is already oily enough, so it's a good winter cream.

I bought this from feelunique.com, I have to say that I didn't look at the ingredients first, that's because they sell this brand on dermotologist (or how it spell, haha), people who work with skin and really are serious about ingredients. But I have to say that I'm totally dispointed on this product. It breaks me out, and I though that was because of other product, but it wasn't. It give me good moist thou, but "alochol denat" isn't good for your skin.... And it's almost the 1. on the ingredients list.
Not recomended ATALL, and expectually not if you're an acne-prone skin type.

this is my HG moisturiser! I've been through so many brands of moisturisers and they either didnt work for me or broke me out. I have oily/combination skin but somewhat dehydrated beneath, sensitive, prone to acne and live in a hot/humid climate. It is very pricey for a moisturiser but its definitely worth it (better than spending so much on several cheaper moisturisers that dont work)
This moisturiser helped calm down my pimples and I always find myself coming back to this. recently i tried the Clarins Hydraquench Cooling Gel for Hot/humid climates but it broke me out like crazy. I ended up reaching for this yet again. It definitely helped calm down all the little pimples (some jelly ones even) and now my skin is back to its original, pimple-free-with the occasional 1 or 2 little ones on my chin state.

I had just replied to a board discussion re: the Guinot hydradermie facial, and it reminded me to write a review on the hydrazone moisturizing cream for all skin types. I was a loyal user of Dermalogica's products, specifically the smoothing cream, for about 1 - 2 years. Unfortunately, the smoothing cream was becoming less effective, and I needed to try something different.
I started going to this new day spa for facials, which uses Guinot products for their treatments. My beautician gave me a few samples of Guinot's products to try, one of which is the hydrazone moisturizing cream. It turned out to be suitable for my dehydrated and sensitive skin. It is moisturizing enough, yet it does not cause any irritation or breakouts (although I still get a few pimples / red spots once in a while).
I have been using this cream twice a day for about 3 months or so. It has been great, and I will continue with it until I find something more effective.
I personally think that Guinot makes quality products, and I would recommend those with delicate and sensitive skin to give their products a try.

This is a great summer moisturizer even if you have t-zone. It's perfect the way a good creme should be. I love the Nutrizone Nourishing Creme too, both are worth the money. I saw a radiance within a day or two. I'd give it a try!

Oh how I love this cream!! It's just wonderful!! I have normal skin and this just goes on perfectly.. Makes my skin feel like velvet and I get no breakouts!! You should definitely try it if you're thinking about purchasing.

made me break out on areas i never broke up before

I bought the Créme Hydrallergic about 2 weeks ago because my facialist recommended it. I have mild rosacea. My skin doesn't react at all to this cream, which is great. But I think I need a little more moisturizing for the winter. It smells a little old fashioned, but I still recommend it for anyone with mild rosacea.
(I was using the Eucerin line of anti-redness products. I stopped and bought the Guinot soothing line bec I think the Eucerin was causing breakouts. Once I stopped using the Eucerin, my skin cleared up immediately.)

This is a very moisturizing but not greasy cream that works well as a night cream and doesn’t clog my pores. However, I dislike the powdery floral fragrance; I much prefer fragrance-free products, since I’m sensitive to fragrance. I also think that this moisturizer is seriously overpriced. If I’m going to pay almost $80 for a skin care product, I expect it to have a proven active ingredient, such as a retinoid, vitamin C, or even peptides, but this cream is just silicones and moisturizing ingredients. I will not repurchase, since I’m sure I can find something similar or better for much less money.

Very,very expensive for me,even when I bought in France. I just cannot justify spending this much on a face cream,even though the results are fantastic. Smooth,almost luminous skin. Maybe I'll treat myself in the future,but I just can't see myself buying another pot just yet.

This is a really good moisturiser for skin slightly on the dry side. I tend to use this as a night cream because if I use it during the day I seem to get a bit of a shiny t-zone. It's the only moisturiser which has got rid of my dry patches and does not break me out. Bit expensive though and would prefer it if it can came in a tube rather than a jar.

My skin had started to get very dry from using Salicylic Acid and Benzoyl Peroxide to combat acne, even though my skin is extremely oily by nature. I use this at night (with the BP) and it has brought elasticity and moisture back to my skin, and strangely has helped prevent further breakouts (my other moisturizers used in combination with BP still gave me breakouts). I'll be using this for a long time!

I didn't find this product anything special. It was a light, gentle product, but i didn't find it very hydrating for my poor dry skin.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Hazel
This is the first moisturizer I've used that didn't clog my pores--at all. That alone will keep me using it. However, it doesn't really do anything special for my skin, it just delivers nice light moisture. Edit: I've been using this for so long with such good results, I thought that maybe I could get away with another facial moisturizer. Well, no. Anything else I try, other than my beloved jojoba oil wreaks havoc in as little as one application. Changing my review to 5 lippies.

Guinot is a little on the pricey side, but a very good line. This moisturizer really made a difference in my skin. I was actually getting compliments about it. However, I can not justify the $80 monthly for face cream-I do hope to be a regular user someday.

This product is fabulous. I called it a miracle because I swear it reversed my age. I am ctually looked forward to waking up in the morning and washing my face because of the cream application that followed! The Problem is the price. It is too expensive for normal folk!
