This product is lovely for dry skin. The first time I tried this product I kept touching my skin because its been awhile since something made my skin feel as soft as a babies bottom. Its a very nice day time moisturizer. Its leave no white cast goes on smoothly and makes my skin feel so soft and smooth. I tried this along with the cleanser and I will def be buying this again even though the cleanser is what I was really after in the starter kit I tried.
I'm on the fence with this because on one hand it is yes a very effective cleanser, however it take awhile to complete the cleansing process. I don't really have issue's with really getting my skin clean because I'm on the dry side and I do not wear a foundation or powder every day. So I have had success with other cleansers with less effort. Yes my skin did look good and not dry because it leaves a little moisture mantle which produces a subtle glow. Yes I could see how this could draw impurities out and the exfoliation with the muslin could help skin turn over. However I think this would be specific to what kind of skin issues you have and if your patient enough to complete the steps. For me I don't know? Its nice,luxurious feeling and effective but this is not the only product that can produce these results.-As a side note the day cream with spf15 is fabulous for dry skin
If you have dry skin I highly recommend this. Even if you doubt that home shopping could have something that could compare to our high end brands give this a try. I was doubtful at first but my dry skin is ever so thankful. Layer this with the moisturizer for even better results. I experienced no break outs and this really seemed to penetrate my skin and hydrate. Its really inexpensive for the results and the soft glow its gives skin. I would repurchase this and will as soon as its gone.

I am so happy I read the reviews for this product. I was contemplating this purchase but have never really been a home shopping kind of girl. I usually tend to go towards high end or middle of the road products you can find at sephora etc. Anyway that being said I wish I would have tried this sooner. Its fantastic for dry skin, My skin did glow after putting this on. I could not stop looking at my skin in the mirror and feeling how smooth and soft it was. No breakouts either. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a no nonsense hydrator that feels luxurious. For a great combo pair this with the Mega Omega 3 Oil for extra hydration.

I'm sorry but after using this product again after putting it down for awhile I realized that it is really not that good. I think this is one of the products that makes your lips peel so you keep on applying .This creates a waxy film on my lips when I use it as well as causes my lips to peel. Sorry but my experience with caudalie products has really been disappointing.

I am very pleased with this product despite the high price tag. I tend to believe brands like this are more talk and less substance but I was surprised that this did not dry out my dry/combo skin. It is a very nice cleanser a little goes a long way and my skin feels very clean without feeling stripped.I have been looking for a replacement for my beloved sisley since they had changed the formula and I think I have found it.

This is a product that I would rec for someone with sensitive skin. In my opinion its very gentle and would probably be an effective exfoliant overtime. I already use the enzyme scrub or now called exfolikate gentle. I love the stuff and it is more aggresive than the lactic so I really don't need both. I just had to try as I really like kate products. Not a bad one at all just geared towards someone more sensitive
This product is just what I have been looking for. My skin is combo dry and it has been a pain finding something to soothe and hydrate but not break me out. I have tried quite a few products and this really hydrates and has left. My skin so smooth. This was approx$30 from amazon...I am very pleased and. I. Hope this will be around for a long time everything I love gets d/c ..cross my fingers this one will stay..would buy again and again

I so wanted to like this product..but like the rose cream I found that this just sat on my skin and did not sink in...I found it a little itchy and uncomfortable..which is not common for me..I have skin on the drier side.This seems like it should be more of a mask that you would wipe off because this never really sunk in...Not a hit for me
Cleansers -Boscia - MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil

This is the best cleansing oil I have tried...Shu is way to expensive and I was not impressed..I must say the same for DHC ...this one was cooling and refreshing...Does what its supposed to cleanses and leaves skin smooth and not feeling dehydrated..I'm glad I gave this product a try..will continue to purchase again and again!
I am hunting for something that will hydrate but is not overly heavy..that being said I was disappointed as I thought this would do the Trick...It was ok maybe for someone who is just combo..but I found this to just sit on my skin and no really absorb and when it did I felt like I needed more..I was disappointed of to try the honey and thyme

This is Super Cheap and So effective as a heat protectant..just follow the directions..I spray comb through a little and use my flat iron..I can imagine why people would use a heat protectant for other purposes and wonder why its not doing this or that..Hmm does what it says it does protects your hair from styling damage..also helps keep your style..Have bought again and again
Lip Treatments -Archipelago Botanicals - Pomegranate Lip Butter

Just another ineffective balm..not worth the price just sat there..not really hydrating..feels like a coating that sits there...would not buy again..sephora professional is 100x better
I love this product under some kind of gorgeous it really brings a glow to my face and really helps everything look finished. I dont use this as an all over primer but just dab it where I want to bring highlight to my skin. I agree this is pricey but until I find something similar for less that gal will be me spending my $28 bucks
I Feel so out of the loop just now discovering Benefit..and how I love this product..layered over tha gal primer my skin looked flawless and radiant. I am on the dry side and did not have any issues with this at all. I really dont like wearing makeup but this did not feel like anything at all....Im in love
