This is a gorgeous product. The only thing is you dot want to wear it if youre looking for a matte skin look. It will leave your skin almost so dewy its wet, so I think you need to have pretty nice skin to start with. Minimal cover, but what it does do it does beautifully. Its like healthier skin in a tube, evens tone, protects from sun, makes you look warm and good and glowy. Pair it with a bit of becca skin perfector and a cream blush and youll look great at a bbq or the beach...but dont put on your winter tone MAC studio fix over the top. You'll look like a piebald weirdo in daylight. Learned that the hard way.
Im not sure why this product is getting so much "hard to blend" feedback. Im not an expert, but I just apply with my stilla blush brush, gently gently and find it gives a nice, matt, healthy all over warmth. You dont want to overuse it! Ok for contouring, careful though! Doesnt go "muddy" on the skin, and so grateful for total lack of shimmer..worth the money? Well. The packaging is beautiful and the smell is sutble..I used to love "She" bronzer (shimmer an all) in "sun" (i think it was called) an it was a third of the price. I think theyre comparible. However I have pale skin and dont need a lot of bronzer, so if you had warmer/darker skin requiring heavier application you might have a different experience...wont buy again, but not sorry I bought!
I started using this to combat crazy pregnancy skin (incredibly dry, flaky, pigmented) all over, and eventually on my face too. I couldnt believe how much it improved the look/tone of my skin, and as for softness-forgetaboutit! Holy cow! I would soak my angry blonde hair in it overnight before washing in the morning (i like a good conditioner better, but in an emergency..) and it made my hair softer/stronger. All this from something you can buy from the supermarket for ten bucks! Mixed a little warm avocado oil with lime juice- brilliant facial cleansing oil. Gets all that primer/foudation off. You wont believe the gunk that comes off your skin (when i run out of my beautiful eve lom *sob* i will resort to this again!) ya for avocado oil!!
I love the Eve Lom morning and night cleansers...but this mask just felt like a basic clay mask...the camphor seems to make it extra drying. Its ok..but doesn't give my skin the radiance that the cleansers in the range do. Its nice, but I don't personally think its worth the money.

Had a baby six months ago, tired, cranky, dullish skin. Desperate for a product to make me look like I have slept, I have money, and basically give me some love! Bought this and cannot believe how beautiful it is. Incredibly sheer, yet effective, creates a sheen that make you look like you've been drinking virgin Pimms on a tennis lawn in a white starched dress. Will I buy again? HECK YES
