Only pads I will use with my expensive Sisley toner because it allows all the product that you put on it to transfer to your face. Also, so soft I use it to remove eye makeup as well. Sometimes I cut them in half, 1/2 for toner and the other to remove eye makeup.
Absolutely a must for oily faced people like me! Takes off all my makeup, and makes me feel super cleansed, "squeaky clean" according to the Sisley esthethitian. Perfect before all the other products in this range (toner and complex). At $75 a bar, it sounds insane but it lasts me 4 months, used twice a day, sometimes 3. I wet my face and hands, then rub my hands with the bar to get a little lather, put the bar down on a dish, then rub the suds on my face for about a min. Amazing product.
Best toner ever! I use the whole tropical resins range from sisley. I have a longer review under my tropical resins treatment review.
This is the only line that got me off ProActiv after 10 years! I use it AM and PM every day along with the other items in the tropical resins range. Under makeup I stay oil free all day, and keeps break outs at bay. I use it alone on days I don't need more moisturizer, or under my regular moisturizer on others. Only use it on oily parts of your face or it will dry out patches of your face, for me, forehead and cheeks are my problem spots where I use this.

This is a miracle product. I thought it would be too thick for my oily skin but didn't make me break out. Moisturized very well, reduced my redness and scars (from picking at my face, I know so bad). I will always have a jar of this on hand.
Love these wipes! Smells amazing! Doesn't make me break out. They're huge too!
Lathers very well. Doesn't smell like typical rose scented products, which I like because perfumes really bother me. Not drying. Love the packaging because I can control how much I want to pour out of the squeeze top. Tons of product for the price, I compared it to what I pay for Body Shop products and it was very comparable but much better quality. Will repurchase.

After years on Proactiv I'm a free woman!!! this product changed my life. I have clearer skin than I did on proactiv, it's luminous, and looks healthy again. Yes, it makes the skin slightly red afterwards but not for long. I also find I use less oil blotting sheets because it has balanced my face oils. Cleared up my existing pimple scars, and haven't had a white head since I've been using them. When I notice more redness after a treatment I just wait a little longer for the next treatment. Not crazy about the packaging because once its open the air starts to dry out the pads. Once my 30 pack is done i might just buy the individually packed ones to have one hand. However i must say the 30 pack is heavily soaked in the treatment so use it while its fresh. Miracle product!

Love this med coverage foundation for my oily skin. Doesn't make me break out which is number one concern for me. Feels like silk, a little thicker than Chanel vitalumiere aqua, but very similar. Easily blended into skin. Bottle is beautiful and hygienic, one lippie off for packaging because I'm not sure I'll get all the product out with the pump, and price per ounce is very high.

Ok so I have very oily skin and I'm just getting off Proactiv after many years on it, and many more attempts to get off it. The SA said I have some premature fine lines for my age so I thought I'd try this serum to counteract the damage benzol peroxide has done on my skin. I have to say so far I really like this product. Absorbs quickly since its almost the consistency of water, little to no smell (for me this is a good thing), 2 pumps does my whole face, neck, and décolleté, and my skin is luminous for hours after. My redness has also calmed down since using it. One minor downside is the way my face feels kinda sticky after I put it on, but this goes away once I put a moisturizer on top. Overall not a perfect product, but definitely close to.

Beautiful dry oil. So luxe I feel like a million bucks when I put it on my body. Smells amazing. Absorbs nicely and I have oily skin so this is a bonus! Website says to add it to your body lotion when applying so this is what I do because i couldn't afford solely moisturizing my whole body with this everyday. Haven't tried on hair or face because as I said I'm super oily in those areas and I don't want to risk breaking out or looking like an oil slick any sooner than I already do naturally. Packaging is stunning on my bathroom counter but oil and glass is very safe, creates a very slippery bottle when applying. But I'll take beauty over function any day! I want to wrap this up and give it to all my family and firends at Christmas! Then again, I like a little mystery beauty secret....

Goes on smooth, long lasting, easily smudged for fading, great for smokey eyes, stays on all day until I take it off. Love, love, love.

Love this concealer! Makes my genetically dark under eye circles practically disappear. Love that it's also hydrating because I'm 26 (almost 27) and looking for anti aging products to start. I also have super oily skin so the hydrating quality helps control the oil production from compensating the lack of water (look this up if you don't understand the science). Most importantly no SPF so I can wear it out at night and not worry about camera flashes causing raccoon eyes. So far so good!

Makes me look like I'm wearing fake eyelashes. I have long, thin lashes and this makes each lash thicker and even longer. I've been using it AM and PM and haven't noticed any differences in my lashes when I'm not wearing mascara, but it's only been a week so I'll update in a few weeks. Only thing I don't like is the feeling of going to bed with mascara on and waking up like I forgot to wash off my mascara the night before (hard, bent lashes) oh and the white lashes aren't very bedroom romantic wink* Probably will purchase again and planning on buying a tube for my mom too! Edit *doesn't work under the new Chanel volume mascara

Miracle product! Literally dries up whiteheads overnight, and stops them from emerging if you treat the spot as soon as you feel it coming.
