Not for me! Over-cloying, old fashioned, boring. TG, I only sampled it.
Lovely! Actually, I have a love-hate relationship with Lancome (absolutely hate its everything except Bi-Facil, Hypnose Drama). But I really love this product. Combined with Bronze eyeliner of the same brand, it emphasizes the yellow in my hazel eyes and gives smokey look without being harsh. Highly recommend!
I really love this highlighter! I am already using mineral powder in Real Sand and I apply this over it. The result: healthy, glowing skin without an overdone outlook. Moreover, it is natural. I have been using many highlighters fom high-end brands such as Guerlain, Dior and Lancome. Nothing comes close to this one.

Sorry Stella! I really wanted to love this fragrance, but it gave an instant headache. It turned to an old-styled ladyish fragrance on me...I had to give it to friend.
I am not easy to satisfy when it comes to skin care products since I have one of the most picky skins on earth. Every time after using a moisturizer or serum I had to use a tinted moisturiser, powder or foundation. But that's not the case now!

Unfortunately a big no, because it doesn't last on me but I really wished it would. Maybe it's due to my dry skin...
Most moisturisers do not work for my dry and sensitive skin. They turn the redness on my cheeks almost to burgundy in few seconds. But this was not that case. I felt immediately the cooling and moisturising effect. This might depend on Phloretin CF which I applied underneath. Anyway and anyhow, these two are my ideal products from now on.

What a crap!I had high hopes before using this product, but alas... I have fine expression lines on my forehead and this product was useless... And at this price tag, totally useless...

I don't know why but my lips are extremely dry nowadays. Other times, even cheap and ordinary products helped me instantly. Although I used almost everything from Neutregena, Roc Enydral to Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream, nothing helped that much. I put it on my lips at night and when I woke up: Voila!
It is a miracle product. Although I do not have oily eyelids, my eye-make up tends to dissepear or smudge easily. A further plus: This product lasts so long.
I can not say that this product lives up to its promises. It doesn"t calm my upset and dry skin at all.
What a dissapointment... It even does not remove the slightest mineral powder. I have to use it again and again which means a total mess and waste.
Moisturizers -Decleor - Aromessence Iris Night Balm

I bought it for my mother who suffers with dry-wrinkled skin. I also bought it without trying it on based on the reviews here and I am glad that I did. I also applied it on my face (for ref. I have dry-sensitive skin prone to rosacea) and I felt immdiately moisture on my face and the redness was lightened.
I must admit that this product wasn't harsh on my skin. However, it is not easy and convenient to use because you have to mix the powder in the bottle with water and then apply to your face. Since I am not handy enough, this product becomes a mess. I tend to apply more than I realy need because the product gets dispersed in my palm. Instead of this (and my beloved Clarins Doux Peeling), I have found something more comfortable: Phytopeel of Decloer.

Absolutely, noooo! It even couldn't the slightest make-up, it burns eyes, although it's claimed that it's suitable for sensitive eyes-skin.
