I received a sample of this product in my recent Target beauty bag. When used in moderation it does lend a very nice peachy glow to the skin, but can look a little too orangey on my fair skin tone. It is moisturizing and doesn't break out my combo skin. For the price I would not purchase. It might irritate my skin a bit, didn't keep it on long enough to find out.

Got this for around $5.99. Doesn't settle into fine lines and wears well. Compliments my skin tone well. I'm an nc 20-25.
Thoroughly removes my waterproof sunblock and bb cream. Leaves a residue if you don't wipe it off properly; however, you can easily follow up with a separate cleanser if you find that your skin feels sticky. I've been using this for about a week and it hasn't broken my combo acne prone skin out. (11/30/12): Takes a lot of effort in ensuring that it doesn't break me out. Does make my under eye skin plump up a little, which makes me look like I have eye bags. I'm still going to give it a rating of 5 since I think it's a great product. Not sure what I'm going to do with it since I can't use it on my eyes either.

I received generous samples of this product. The cream has a very nice consistency. It moisturizes my skin well without leaving it too greasy; however, I will not purchase it since my skin doesn't need it.

Only downside of the packaging is that it dispenses too much liquid, which gets everywhere sometimes. I bought this for around $15 for an 8 oz. bottle. One pump is sufficient enough to remove my water resistant sunblock. I have pretty sensitive skin and this hasn't irritated it. There is a slight fragrance. Doesn't leave a a greasy residue, but I do follow up with another cleanser afterwards.
Effectively removes water resistant sunblock, but does not throughly emulsify. Leaves a very noticeable film of oil on the face. As a result, I usually have little breakouts when I wake up the next day. I've used better cleansing oils that costs a lot less than this product. I purchased this for $21.
Curls my lashes nicely and has lasted for years.

I bought this a year ago when my skin was a bit on the oily side. This left my skin feeling nice and moisturized; however I stopped using it when I was in college because it wasn't enough to moisturize my dry skin during the winter. I recently just started using it again, but found that it irritated my skin, which is disappointing... so sad T___T
Really wanted to like this product since it left my skin feeling smooth and supple; however, it really irritated my cheeks so I had to stop using this after a few days.

I don't really wear powder anymore, but I do recommend this product for those who have oily skin and are looking for something that'll keep their skin matte throughout the day. The powder goes on smoothly and doesn't look chalky unless you overdo it haha. I got this in light and I'm around an nc 20-25.

THis product is really expensive, especially since I'm current a college student and can't afford to pay this exorbitant amount when I have tuition and textbook costs to worry about. With that being said I think this is a wonderful product. For the past year my skin has been extremely sensitive, every moisturizer irritates it, but somehow this is the only cream that soothes it. If i use too much it can clog my pores a bit as I have combo skin, but it isn't really a problem. I will continue repurchasing until I find something that works similarly, but is priced around my affordability range.
Moisturizers -First Aid Beauty - Ultra Repair Cream

The cream has an emollient whipped texture that allows it to glide easily across the skin. It does a decent job as moisturizing my skin and I have combo skin. I think this irritates my skin just a little bit so I wouldn't repurchase it. I really wanted this to work out for me because I think $42.50 is a little too much to be paying for a Clinique moisturizer. I gave it a rating of five because I think it's a great product nonetheless. Edit (7/2/12): I'm going to retry my sample. I think my skin might have been already irritated from over manually exfoliating it, but then again I could be completely wrong. Will update later. I really hope it works for me, it makes my skin feel soooo nice and supple! T___T 7/15/12: Cream makes me skin very nice and supple. My face is significantly paler than the rest of my body, but this makes my skin darken a bit when I apply it, if that makes any sense. Like my face is white, but when I put the cream on it turns yellow-er..it's kind of strange, but still my favorite face cream! Doesn't irritate my skin at all or break me out. :DD 8/19/12: Stopped using this cream, didn't irritate my skin, but definitely left it more yellow. Kind of strange, will continue to use it as a hand cream. I guess I just have to be careful not to get it on my face.

Not moisturizing, leaves an oily finish on my skin, which isn't the same as dewy. I think it also might be irritating my skin?
