I have waited for over a year to try this new serum. Believe it came out spring 2010. I usually stay away from hypes and I found this serum too expensive in a time of economic bad times. Okay...so...last week I went to a department store in my home town and I noticed this La Mer counter. The SA asked me if I knew La Mer and before I knew I was chatting with her and got some tips and advice. Yeah...I hear you thinking..those sales tricks. Of course, she's not there for selling tomatos...but she did not try to sell me anything ! She gave me this information and a lot of samples. I've tried this regenerating serum now for a week and I must admit...my skin looks more radiant, less red and irritated, feels softer and looks supple. In just 1 week. OMG...I think I have to purchase a full sized bottle now...And will review again after a longer period of time. For now, I am hooked ! FYI I have sensitive, acne prone skin with large pores on my chin. Dry patches on my cheeks. I am 40 ++
WOW...amazing ! Just got back from a holiday in Spain, very hot and drying for my 40+ skin :( I normally use La Prairie hydrating serum (blue bottle) but it did not work anymore. I ran into this one, tried it on my (dry suntanned) hand and instantly...my hand felt softer, less dry. Well I thought...what's good for my hand should do the same trick on my face and Yes, yes ....IT DID ! Love the way it feels like water, runny, but not too... not heavy at all, yet moisturises my skin very well and if you apply CDLM after this, it's great.Don't know how the combo is with the GDLM (gel) or moisturizing lotion, but I think it works great with those too. I have sensitive skin with T zone, for me this is it !!

I just discoverd this Australian brand "Uspa". They have some amazing products. I use the Vitamin C Serum. Only 1 drop and my feels feels supple, comfortable en my moisturiser glides on smoothly. After 2 weeks of use, my skin looks more even. Just order some other items e.g. the revitalizing eye serum and moisture control lotion. The idea that it's organic, no chemical or artificial stuff in there and that's not been tested on animals is appealing to me. a+++++

Wow, this stuff is amazing ! I occasionally break out and had a big zit, all red an itchy on my cheek. I put this stuff on and the next morning it has shrunk to normal proportions. Next day completely gone, no scar. I always keep this at hand.
Sorry...another bullshit product. I can't stand the Omorovicza hype...it does nothing for me. It just stings, it's blah, yuk and boring...

I think the Omorovicza products are highly overrated. I think even CDLM and LP are better in high end. Or my beloved Bergman Beautycare or Paula's Choice products. This stuff sucks and does nothing. Stay away !
blah blah blah. Did no do anything.

After searching for the best moisturizer ever, all around the globe, I just found this lovely brand in my home country, the Netherlands. This is a brand, developed by plastic surgeons. Their key ingredient is Beta Glucan. This works for me. Try and order samples or trial kits. you won't be disappointed. No breakouts, groundbreaking techniques, love it !! though not all products. Love the ultra light peptide, I have sensitive skin..love the eye bright. (shrinks my swoolen eyes), and love the metamorphose mask.

This is not available in the Netherlands. When I could order this trough a dear friend (thank you Lori), I thought..this is the moment ! I splurged and bought the instant lifting. Boy..this is soooo good ! the moment you put it on, it's like botox in a bottle. Only lasts for a day, of course. Nice for a day, evening, wedding or other special moment. Makes me look I just had tons of sleep !

HG material for me. Medium coverage. (believable coverage). Stays put all day. Pores are less noticable. Sinks into skin. No red spots or breakouts next day, very important. I am prone to acne, within hours I have new breakouts, but not with this. I am impressed ! And the idea that it's jam-packed with good ingredients does a lot to me.

WOW....could it be that I was soooo tired that when I applied this, It could have been any product ? I just experienced an instant eyelift, yes I did.....feels great, soft, moistend and lifted at the same time. But the price...:( Ridiculous !!. Will update in a month or so..I'm also using CDLM eye concentrate which used to be my HG.
If you have oily or combo skin please step away from this product as far as possible...first 2 days it felt like magic. My skin looked great, supple and plump. but day 3 all little bumps over my forehead, my chin. YUK... But I honestly have to say I have had no surgery or laser treatment and just used it for acne scars. I purchased samples through Ebay. Perhaps if you really have a skin condition I think this could help. Just for fun...don't
WOW...HG material for me ! not too heavy or greasy. Not too light either. Smooth and easy to apply. I apply it AM and PM and in the morning the puffiness under my eyes vanish the moment I apply it. I truly recommend this product. A++++++++ EDIT 08/02/24. ****Since I use this product I don't use YSL touche eclat anymore, bye bye dark circles****
I was lemming this scent for so long. What a bummer !! No staying powder, none....zero...It almost looks like this is always the case with this type of scents.
Lovely scent. It reminds me of Tiempe Passate by Antonia's Flowers. Not the same fragrance, but the pepperiness and saltiness. Does this make sense :) LOL. As for all the AG fragrances, no staying power. Too bad :(
