My all time favourite, the best of the best! Spectacular results considering I have rare, short, straight lashes. Hypnose gives me volume, can keep a curl like no other, does not smear even after long hours of wear and, very important, does not hurt my very sensitive eyes. The best!
I don't understand the fuss about this product. It did nothing for me. Last winter, due to harsh weather, I had an area just over my lip and near my nose, which was red and flaky all the time and just wouldn't go away. Because it was so cold I switched to A-derma moiturizer which is similar to Trixera from Avene. It improved the rash for a few days until it got back. I tried this Cicaplast cream that I had read very good reviews here. But nope. It did nothing for me.
I just love this mask!! It's so soothing, so hydrating, there's nothing I love more than this Avene Instant Soothing Mask when I look for moiturisation and soothe. Great product!

It's a decent product, I guess. It did a good job saving my skin last summer together with the Toleriane cleanser also from LRP. But after 3 bottles it just stopped working. I now use it from time to time when I feel I need a mild cleanse and when I'm at a loss finding a suitable cleanser. But I feel like I cannot use it on a regular basis any more. I just don't really think it cleanses my skin on it's own so my skin gets a little oily afterwards and I just refuse to use a lot of products, each with its own purpose. Well, still looking for "the one" cleansing product...

A good product for young age. I was about 26 yeard old when I used it and it did a pretty decent job at moisturizing. And that's about it. Which is ok after all. I suppose it's unfair of me to ask more when it's purpose is to moisturize the periocular area. Now I expect more from my eye creams and would not repurchase it.

Love this one! Saved my skin last summer! I was going through a difficult and stressful period and my skin showed it loud and clear. I had horrible red bumps all over my face, all over my neck, my shoulders, my back. I had a sample of this and it just instantly calmed my skin. After first use! I went and bought the full bottle and since then I always have a bottle of this in my bathroom. It's a little expensive compared Bioderma's Atoderm, 1 litre bottle. But worth every penny!
Cleansers -La Roche Posay - Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser

I began using this last year when I had horrible horrible skin due to a very stressful period in my life. I had red bumps all over my face and neck. Not a rash, not pimples just red bumps that wouldn't go away.. I was desperate. My facialist kept recommending me acne products that only got my skin worse and worse. Enter this one. Together with clay masks each night for 10 consecutive days, a moisturizer from Caudalie and the fluid foundation from Avene, this Toleriane milk helped clear my skin. I used to take my make up off with Toleriane milk and then clear my face with the Phisiological Gel also from LRP. The combination worked through 3 bottles of each but then I guess my skin got used to them and they just... stopped working. It gave me a horrible rash on my left eyelid and it's supposed to be for intolerant skin... So I guess it's a good product in some circumstances. At least for me it worked at first but then it didn't anymore.
Love this product!! It has everything I look for in an eye cream. It's for sensitive eyes and I have very very sensitive eyes. It's moisturizing, has SPF and also anti-aging properties. It has a creamy texture, very soft and velvety, sinks in fast and leaves the area hydrated and soft. I also seems to have some effect on my dark circles. Love it!
Bought it last autumn based on the reviews here and the fact that I love the Special Eye Balm from Clarins. This one broke me out the first time I used it. Broke me out the second time. Gave it a third chance but my skin was furious by then and I just gave up using this... Definetely not for me. I still have it though. I may give it a chance in a few months if I don't give it away to my mother by then.
One of my favourites mascaras! I have short, straight, barely there eyelashes. But this one compensates all those flaws. With this I have long, curly, voluminous lashes!! Love it!

Actually I pretty much like this. I have sensitive eyes, they don't tolerate expensive products like Diorshow mascaras, Guerlain eyeshadows or mascaras. But my eyes do like this primer. It does it's job: my eyeshadow won't run off, won't crease until late at night. And it won't irritate my eyes, which is more than enough for me.
