I wanted to start using Mexoryl as soon as it was approved in the U.S. so I bought the Anthelios xl as soon as it was released. I found it very greasy and it didn't absorb well. I had to load on the powder to offset the shine. I was very happy that Lancome (same parent company as La Roche Posay) came out with a formula that is much more matte and works much better for me. I am oily and fair. It has a little more of a white hue but it disappears quickly. I am very happy with the Lancome formula and would highly recommend it.
I just discovered this fragrance at Nordstrom and really love it. I agree with other reviews that is does not last very long.
I have tried soooo many eye creams. At 32 I have noticed small changes around my eyes. They were looking a little more tired and the skin underneath looked less firm. I have loved this eye cream. It is the first one that I have used that has made any difference at all. I only use it at night. Considering the high price of most eye creams this one is actually worth it and a pretty good price at under $100.
I started having adult acne at 27. By 32 I was fed up. I tried everything and spent a fortune. Obagi is the first thing that has REALLY worked. I have quite a bit of discoloration around my mouth and chin from constant cysts so it will take more time to fade those. I am on my 3rd month and have had no major breakouts. Now I have the occasional pimple like most people. My skin tone is more even and many of the fine lines around my eyes are diminishing. What an amazing product. It is well worth the time and money but you MUST be vigilant about wearing sunscreen and a big hat when outdoors.
