Fantastic cream, being 44 yrs with combo skin type rather sluggish, not many wrikles but extremely sentitive, I found this cream as not greasy, didnt give me breakouts, or itching symptoms. It's much better than the lotion type and other creams from GL like success model or laser or substantific ( too heavy). Is has no lifting effects, but wrikle softening efects. I have used it with Secret Divine ( similar to EL Idealist) serum underneath if I want my skin to look drier or Success laser serum to make it tighter. I think on its own is ok. I use it in the evening ( not night) if I have the time. I am on my 2d jar. Smell is a big strong. The eye cream is not as efficient. I prefer the success eye tech which is cheaper. Price is in Euro between 300-325. It's very expensive but you need half the amount of other creams. One jar lasts me 5 to 6 months ( depending if I use it once or twice daily). I think is an excellent moisturer if you want to spend something more. It gets absorbed quickly and my Kanebo's Allie 50+ sp tanning lotion or Vichy's 50+ doesn't runn as sun is very harsh on Mediterranean countries with temp over 40Cel (105 Far). Also it performs ok even if my skin is sweating. haven't tried during winter. I imagine that for dry skins might not be enough. The lotion is too greasy and doesn't absorb quickly. I wound't recommend it at all unless you are under 30.
I have a combo mediterranean skin type that I am exposing it very frequently to the sun especially while I am driving. I am 44 years old, choosing cosmetics from all sorts of companies mainly with vast experience in the field. I have read the reviews for the high potency + Hydra B5 kit and I went to purchase it. Unlikely in southen Europe they sell only the professional formulations. So I have purchased The Advanced-C kit consisting of 15ml Advanced C serum and 15ml Skin Hydration Complex. I have used them during the morning for the past 5 weeks but not on their own. After the C serum and the skin hydration serum I use a Guerlain moisturer (Aqua day refreshing gel or Kensoki vital-ice cream) and at the top my sun protection cream SPF 40 of Guerlain or the Cellec-c 30+ ). In that order both Cellex-c serums work fine and I have seen a lot of improvement to my skin texture. Avoid using them all alone without moisturers or with an anti wrikle creams. There is something in the formulas that do not blend well with the wrikle-tightening creams. Price for the kit in my my country is Euro 169!!!. I found it via internet sites ( my second purchase) around Euro100. The difference between the High potency serum and the Advance C serum apart from L-Ascorbic acid consistency 10% vs 17.5% is the Ph. The H.Potency has around Ph 2.5 and Advanced C 4.5 while the skin's PH is 5.
