I'm baffled that this has been an In Style Best Beauty Buy for several years running. I'm 36 and am just now starting to get deeper lines under my eyes. This product seemed kinda good when you first put it on but hours into the day it seems to wear off. It's just not moisturizing enough for me. I think the lines in my eyes have gotten worse since I've been using it for about a month now. I'm chucking it!
Suddenly my face has dried out and I've tried a bunch of stuff and this oil works! I put it on at night only and you only need a few drops. It's only been a few weeks so I'm not sure about my sun spots fading but moisture-wise I'm really happy! Also, regarding gingerrama's awesome review and great research: I tried to get some of the less expensive argan oils but the companies were charging $10 for shipping in the US. That makes their cost per ounce almost equal to Kahina which I can buy in a store.
Smells great but I didn't find it that moisturizing. Maybe because of the sunscreen?

I bought this because I was looking for a daily exfoliating scrub but there seems to be less scrub than there is foam. I found it to be more of a cleanser than a scrub. It also dried out my skin and I only used it at night.
The mascara is good and thick and separated my lashes well but it also straightened them once it dried. I'd like to at least keep the curl....

I have long lashes (naturally) and this brush is just too small for me. Hardly any product spread on my lashes even with attempting multiple coats.
Eh - this is very lightweight. Almost a gel. It has the marine smell that most La Mer products have and absorbed quickly. It definitely helped moisturize my skin but I'm looking for something a little heavier.
This mascara is a little deceptive. It goes on okay. Separates and thickens okay. But getting it off is a lot of effort. Using Clinique's purple, dual-phase remover this mascara crumbles off and it takes forever.
I've used this since I was in my 20's on my forehead only, in the morning and evening. I layer serums and heavier moisturizers over it. It's always worked great for me!

I've used this for years and I do like my night creams greasy... The smallest jar (1oz) usually lasts me for a full year because I only use it at night, on my "dry areas" of my forehead and under my eyes. On my eyes, I layer it over a light retinol cream. I really feel it's the best moisturizer I've ever used and worth the $150-ish.

This moisturizer is great! It's a medium weight but I definitely feel hydrated no matter what time of year. I only use it at night.

Got a sample of this. My lashes are long (w/o any lash-growing supplements) and this glided on, but right after curling it would straighten my lashes almost immediately.It wasn't clumpy but they didn't stay separated either.
