This is the first creme ever that I actually bought myself. Prior to this I've always used samples or cremes of my mother.To me, this is the perfect cream, it has everything I want: it works, it does more than just moisturizing, it gives your skin the perfect balance. It's a very beautiful jar it comes in. I certainly won't throw it away once it's finished. Its perfume is derived from the ingredients and it's not too heavy. I think you should defenetily check it out at the counter.

Well, I have just begun my search for the moisturizer of my dreams and this is a very good start indeed. I have been using a large deluxe sample of this product for about a week and I have already noticed an improvement in the overall look of my skin (increased glowiness, slightly decreased pores, slightly decreased wrinkles). I am quite shocked that anything could work so quickly. The product smells quite nice but does have a definite floral scent so if that bothers you, you should take a sniff before purchasing. I tend to be quite sensitive to smell but was not put off. The cream itself is very thick and rich and feels quite delicious going on. It feels slightly greasy for a little while after applying so I'm guessing that this product is not right for my oily sisters. I'm more or less normal with very occasional breakouts (none at all from this though).This would be hg material except for the price and the slight oily feeling (I'm hoping for one that sinks in a little quicker but that may not exist :)).I'm 43, med olive skin, normal. UPDATE: Since I finished my sample I have been totally lemming this product (and trying to get it on ebay lol). This is a wonderful cream and even beats out La Mer IMO. I will hopefully get some more and do future updates. I raised my rating from 4 to 5 because despite cost and the slight oily feeling, this is by far the best night cream I have ever tried.

After being stunned by the results of using the Orchidee Imperiale Serum I tried, I decided to try the cream. I needed a cream as I still have some serums to finish out, so I bought the original formula cream, not the new "rich" formula. I absolutely ADORE it! This cream is wonderful. It leaves my skin feeling moisturized and comfortable without a hint of greasiness. I tried it with the serum underneath and the results were fantastic. I do happen to like Chanel's Sublimage and have been using it. It can get really greasy feeling if you use too much, the Guerlain cream is much better for my skin. I like the way Orchidee Imperiale feels on my skin, better that many other creams I have tried. It's too soon to tell if there are any firming properties and the like, but so far so good. I get a nice glow from this cream as well, and it's not mica or some other light reflector, it's the cream that's doing the work. This cream does not clog my pores, which did happen with Sublimage (especially in my T-zone). I will update as the the results. Try this cream, it is phenomenal.

I really didn't want to like this product due to its anticipated high price (and wow was I stunned when I looked it up), but I got a generous sample from Nieman Marcus and used it almost every morning for about ten days. Very moisturizing, even having gotten used to the highly emollient Shiseido Future Solution for some time. Feared it might be a bit greasy as it does present as a very heavy cream, but my skin felt exceptionally comfortable in the morning even with the changing weather. Felt my upper cheek and orbital area getting a bit tight, though oddly not DRY in the afternoon: what is my skin getting tighter? Prolly not. Hate the old-lady dirty-vanilla Guerlain smell. A very good cream, nevertheless.EDIT 12/1/07: now that winter has set in, I find this cream has me feeling dry and tight by the time I get to the office. Back to my Shiseido!

Fantastic cream, being 44 yrs with combo skin type rather sluggish, not many wrikles but extremely sentitive, I found this cream as not greasy, didnt give me breakouts, or itching symptoms. It's much better than the lotion type and other creams from GL like success model or laser or substantific ( too heavy). Is has no lifting effects, but wrikle softening efects. I have used it with Secret Divine ( similar to EL Idealist) serum underneath if I want my skin to look drier or Success laser serum to make it tighter. I think on its own is ok. I use it in the evening ( not night) if I have the time. I am on my 2d jar. Smell is a big strong. The eye cream is not as efficient. I prefer the success eye tech which is cheaper. Price is in Euro between 300-325. It's very expensive but you need half the amount of other creams. One jar lasts me 5 to 6 months ( depending if I use it once or twice daily). I think is an excellent moisturer if you want to spend something more. It gets absorbed quickly and my Kanebo's Allie 50+ sp tanning lotion or Vichy's 50+ doesn't runn as sun is very harsh on Mediterranean countries with temp over 40Cel (105 Far). Also it performs ok even if my skin is sweating. haven't tried during winter. I imagine that for dry skins might not be enough. The lotion is too greasy and doesn't absorb quickly. I wound't recommend it at all unless you are under 30.

After trying a sample of this product I was hooked. I went on line to see how much it cost and about fainted, this would be more than I would have paid for any beauty product. After using the whole sample and seeing the results I broke down and bought the full size and do not regret it at all. It is not like having a face lift or any thing but the texture of my skin is very nice.

Way too light to justify buying the full size of this. It smells very strong, but didn't irritate my nose. I also was happy that I received a sample of this first. It did soften my skin and kept the flakes away, but that's about it.

After getting (and loving) 3 samples of this product, I finally broke down and bought a full size. Do this at the right time at Neiman Marcus, and you can get multiple GWPs and samples, though. That softens the blow of the purchase price, at least.I love it. I'm in my late 30s and this is just perfect. Perfectly moisturizing, but not greasy. I'll admit that I haven't used it in the wintertime yet, so I don't know if it'll be sufficient.I wish Guerlain would bottle the scent they use in this, even if my husband does make fun of me for smelling like an old lady when I use it. I adore the fragrance, and I am not a perfume person. Other Guerlain skin products are often too heavily fragranced for me. Super Aqua Serum, I'm looking at you!The jar is beautiful, but it's too much for me to manipulate on a daily basis. Big, heavy thing. I kept my little sample jars, and I decant into them.

If you have the right skin type for this product: dry-ish, sensitive or not, maybe 40+, this is a fabulous product. After using it for a month, my skin has n-e-v-e-r looked this good! Granted, it is extraordinarily expensive, but - WOW! - is this fun!
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
