I love several products from the line but I felt this made little difference. I won't repurchase. My bank account is grateful.
Wow! This is an amazing product! After receiving a sample and using this for a couple of weeks, I did something I thought I would never do. I shelled out $375 for a face cream. It is THAT good. I noticed a decrease in fine lines immediately. My skin really glows from this. Even my husband noticed. I have tried every skin care line over 20 years and NOTHING compares to this. I don't even feel I need to wear foundation anymore. I was always skeptical when I saw others say this about a product but this product has done it for me. I would recommend this product to those of us on the north side of 40 and beyond. This one really is worth every penny. BTW I have combo/sensitive skin and I was very concerned it would be too greasy and irritating but it has been fine. UPDATE: still loving this. I've gotten so many compliments on my skin! This is definitely for more mature/damaged skin which is why I think some of the younger reviewers didn't feel it did much for them. And no, I have no affiliation with Revive...
Skincare - Face -Skyn Iceland - 5 Day Detox Kit for stressed skin

This works well for me. I have combination sensitive skin with occasional breakouts. I bought the 5 day Detox kit and it really made a difference in my skin. I thought I looked a lot more rested and it calmed down some of the redness and itchiness that I sometimes get. The 'cooling' feeling from some of the products is a bit different and made me nervous at first but it brought no irritation or ill effects. I know I'm going to love that in the summertime!
I did a lot of research before purchasing this sunscreen. This is for the Canadian version -as I've heard there are Euro and Canadian versions. I bought this for my sensitve, slightly oily skin (Baumann OSPW). First off it made my skin very shiny. If this is the most cosmetically elegant I'm not sure what I do next! In addition I got tiny little zits from this around my nose. They come and go in a day or two - but annoying. This was quite expensive and you get only 40ml, a very small amount. Won't repurchase.

I was skeptical but tried it on recommendation after a facial. It does really reduce redness. Recommended.
I've seen this highly recommended as a spot cover. I bought it to use in that way and it is impossible to blend - even when mixing it with liquid foundation and/or moisturizer. It just streaked and sat in my pores making them look huge. A waste of $$ - unuseable. I have sensitive/combo skin with some oily tendencies. Maybe this would work if you have extremely oily skin.
I get so many compliments on my skin when I wear this mixed with Laura Mercier oil free foundation. My only grip is that the pump gets clogged and every once in a while it splatters when you pump it. I've been using this since it first came out. I use the lightest shade.
Nothing special. I'm much happier with Osmotics Blue Copper and TNS Recovery Complex.

A nice light moisturizer. I'm 43 and have combo/sensitive skin. I like it and will probably buy it again. I use this in the AM with TNS Recovery and use Osmotics Blue Copper 5 with the TNS at night.

Great in combination with the cleansing oil. Water like but a little heavier. Feels fresh and clean. My skin has improved using this and the cleansing oil.

Best cleanser I have ever tried (and I have tried them all)! Removes makeup extremely well, not too harsh (as I found DHC to be). I've actually seen a reduction in pore size and a reduction in oiliness. I am 43 with sensitive/combo skin. This is a great product.
Worth every penny. The smell isn't that great but not as bad as I expected reading all of the comments here. I've tried everything on my 43 year old skin and this was amazing. Smooth and plumped. I have sensitive skin and had no problems with this. If you are over 35, worth the $$$.
I've used about every skin care line out there. I've had some discoloration on the side of my face and this cleared it up and made the rest of my skin look great too. I stopped using it for awhile and the dark spot came back as well as breakouts. Went straight back. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
This stuff is the best! It has definitely improved the appearance of my oily/sensitive/combination skin. A+!

The smell of this turned me off. It didn't seem to really deal with my chapped lips either. Kiehl's Lip Balm #1 runs rings around this.
