I got this thinking it was an updated version of my old HG, I was wrong! I don't know what they did to it but I think this is making me break out and is making my skin more oily. I can't find anywhere on this packaging to suggest that its oil-free. I miss the old version of this, plus at least that one was labeled oil-free, I think this is a moisturizer. spf combo, which sucks! I gave it 2 lippies b/c it does what its supposed to, but it breaks me out I think :(

Not as good as secret in my opinion.
This is an ok mascara in that it does darken my lashes. And that when it put on initially, its nce. I've found that I NEED to use primer with this or else it melts under my eyes throughout the day and thats just gross. But for all that it does I can find a replacement in my chanel exceptionnel

One of my absolute favorite masks! Affordable, and it works! Cleans out all the gunk from my face and makes it so much cleaner. Unfortunately I was told that it has been discontinued! I just got its "replacement", which I haven't tried yet. I just had to order it off ebay b/c I'm so worried that I won't be able to find it again!
Ok I love kate somerville's anti-bac lotion and eradikate spot treatment. I went into a local dept store for a free oxriygen facial and then the facialist recommended that I get all of these products including this one. Hmm I wonder why? Well I ended up getting this and the oil free moisturizer, I'm not sure which one it is but now I'm breaking out! I was on the way to clear skin by using my olay moisturizing clothes, and my anti bac lotion and spot treatment. I also had not been wearing makeup for about a week straight. Really, I just had some marks fading and I had one small blemish that was on its way out. Now I've got about 4 new ripe ones in 3 days. Plus this makes my skin feel way too dry and flakey. BOO And I bet when I return the items, they'll say my skin is just "purging"

I am reviewing this product after using it for about a month. I switched between my boscia cleanser, a Purpose cleanser, and now I'm using Olay hydrating clothes. And I think my skin is finally balanced! At first this made my skin really dry and red, and I though "Oh great another drying acne product, surprise!" but I stuck with this. The combination of the cleansing clothes (for makeup removal and exfoliation) and this is a great combo for me to make sure my skin doesn't get too outta whack. I also have been using Kate Somervilles EradiKate. AWESOME COMBO for me! :) EDIT: Mk so I still love this but I'm adding a little warning to some with sensitive or combo skin to stay away from the detox cleanser. The combo of the two made my skin super dry and flakey and I started to break out. I bought it because the SA at the KS counter invited me to try an oxygen facial and the facialist recommended it to me. LAME combo!!! EDIT: mk so I went back to get my 2nd bottle of this and went to use it and the pump got stuck! i kept having to try to pull the lid up then try to pump it again with no avail, so I returned it to exchange it for one that worked and THEY WERE OUT! Idk what I'll do, well I guess I'll get started on my Retin-A .025% gel regime now... :(
I smelled this on another person and thought it was disgustingly sweet, like bad cotton candy and oranges. So I tried it on myself, it still stank to high heaven. Cheap bodyspray for teens, I'll stick to my Chanel Chance, Coco mademoiselle, and chance eau fraiche. I also like burberry summer. The last 2 fragrances are kinda sweet but not like this disgusting syrupy odor! DISGUSTING
I like the product itself but its just too pale for me. I'm naturally fair with what others call naturally highly pigmented lips. So when I tried this again after I resharpened this, I was suprised how pale it was! I have a lot of chanel products including other lip items but I would only repurchase this type again. But not this shade.

I've bought this twice because it really works! I remember visiting my sister in san diego and she was staring at my face and I had asked her why she was staring at me. She told me that (apologetically) she was so suprised about how much the blackheads on my nose had gone down (I've had these seriously freckle sized dark pores on my nose since I was 12). I've bought this 2x total. So I wanna buy another package of this soon but I'll have to save up a little bit because it is expensive. I gives such a huge clarity to my skin that its worth the price.
I believe I have found my HG for acne! I looked up the reviews for the treatment kit and kept looking around the internet for indivual pieces of the kit. I found "a change for a night" oil free emusion, which is a nightly treatment. I've been using this along with my Boscia botanical blast cleanser for about a week and WOW! All of my acne is reducing greatly, so much so, that my co-workers are noticing and I feel like I can go without make up. I have moderate acne that is extremely persistant and hard to get rid of (mostly on my cheeks and jawline). I am turning 22 and have tried everything on the matket from high end (chanel) to drugstore (neutrogena) to hyped (proactiv). If this keeps up until the tube runs out I'll order tubes and tubes so I never run out! I really think this is the greatest product I've tried! :) Edit: I've been using it for a full month niow and it keeps my blemishes down and helps them heal quicker. Most of the breakouts I've been getting are stress and hormonal right now (I work at a dept. store) because of the christmas season. Luckily they go down about as quick as they pop up because of this product. Still great! UPDATE 4-21-09) I've switched to Kate Somervilles acne treatment, its more easy for me to buy. And so far its working

I'm on my 2nd bottle of this. i started using it in the summertime and now that it's fal its even better to perk up my eyes. It's mildly moisturizing and evens discolorizing. Idk why te first reviewer just posted the ingredients, maybe that's her problem with the product. I find it to be a great product for brightening.
I think I like this product more than the origional cream-foam cleaner. It seems like with this I can cleanse my face 3x a day (because of the heat) and not have oilies at all. Of course that's a day without makeup. The jury is still out to see if that does better under makeup. EDIT: Even only washing my face 2x a day with this has gotten drying. I've switched to Boscia and I think its better.

I've tried Bare Escentuals for many years, and recently tried out chanel to find my hg foundation. I must tried just about every foundation they had (those poor S.A. girls tried so hard!) with no avail. The eint innocent was too greasy and made me break out,and the mat lumiere caused wierd dry spots and made my skin look really chapped and flakey (plus it was hard to blend). And then I read here about this L.P. foundation... I had recently gone through 2 boxes of the cellular refining mask the previous month and absolutely loved it! So I'm so glad I decided to try this! The coverage is really good for me and with my kinerase lotion for blemish-prone skin, it last just about all day and with little to no breakouts (I break out to to other things, like stress)! I think I found my hg!
I'm not old or have dry skin, but I wanted to love this! I started using this as a preventative measure in place of my Neutrogena anti- wrinkle/ blemish cream and I thought this actually worked better for me. EDIT: I'll have to use less than rhe reccommended 3 pumps (reccommended by the SA) b/c it seems a little greasy when I wake up... ew. And I could be wrong but I think this caused me to get a little broken out. I have since switched to neutrogena's intense anti-wrinkle cream.
I am so impreesed with this product! I just started using it as part of my gentler approach to treating my acne (Clarins Brightening foaming cleanser, ZENO, this, and Proactiv's BP lotion). I went up to the counter the other day and asked if there was something good for combo skin that is pretty sensitive and kinda dry in some spots (from using Pro Activ, thank you!) and the guy reccommended either this or the other alcohol free toner. I bought this and used it last night with my revamped routine and voila! I have non- irritated, balanced, clearer skin! I don't care about the price tag as long as I dont have to keep having to try and find a new moisturizer!
