Love this because it's a gentle enough cleanser for daily use, with or without the brush. Fresh smell and well priced - a bonus!
Pleasantly surprised by this product! I received it in a gift package and figured it might be too rich for my dry, sensitive skin but it worked really well - moisturized nicely through the winter months with no breakouts, and absorbed fairly quickly so I could put my makeup on.

Nice, gentle but effective body scrub. Pleasant smell, though didn't find that it firmed at all as claimed on the package.

Smells good and feels great going on, but also absorbs quickly. Worked well for me under a variety of moisturizers, especially in the summer and when I was in more humid climates.
Treatments -Olay - Regenerist Daily Regenerating Serum

Great reasonably priced serum. It's light-weight but does the job. Absorbs quickly and doesn't leave any stickiness. I'd definitely buy this product again.
Love the fresh feel and how it goes on - a little goes a long way to feeling moisturized and it sinks in quickly. I haven't yet noticed any line softening, but have only been using it for about a week. I find the smell soothing, though each Pangea product definitely has it's own scent and they are very distinct smells - much different than most products, either you like them or not (and I certainly don't all Pangea products - some smell truly gross to me!).
Moisturizers -Darphin - Arovita C Line Response Firming Serum

I've used a few samples of Arovita C now. Like the texture, how quickly it sinks in (great for applying moisturizer and makeup right after), and the smell. Can't comment on long term effects yet, but it's made my purchase list based on what I've seem so far.
Great non-drying toner with a pleasant - not overpowering - citrus scent. Leaves my dry and sensitive skin feeling soft and clean. Only drawback is it's a little on the pricey side. Otherwise a great toner.
Moisturizers -Elizabeth Arden - Intervene Stress Recovery Night Cream

I have dry, sensitive skin and live in a dry climate - winters where I live are the worst! I used this product both at night and during the day under my makeup. It has a nice, light scent, goes on smoothly, and absorbs relatively quickly. And I had no breakouts while using it, so it worked for my sensitive skin. I also like the fact that the jar is plastic, though it looks like glass (I've broken far too many bottles on my tile floor!). But overall it didn't really stand out for me; though it didn't make my skin worse in any way, I wouldn't say it markedly improved the condition of my skin either (something I think a good night cream should do). So I may buy it again - might work well for me in the summer - but probably won't rush to do so right away.
FIT Foundation went on nicely - not sticky or pasty - and the colour match was good (I always have to wear the lightest colour, in any foundation). It felt nice and light on my skin, not heavy at all. Unfortunately it does nothing to even skin tone, and not much to cover up any blemishes or discolouration. And it doesn't last all day - maybe four hours max. So for a foundation it really doesn't do the job it should be doing.
