I tried this as an alternative to Darphin Intral Baume when it was discontinued. It works almost as well as the intral baume, but it is very expensive and has a harsh smell. I have dry/sensitive skin and it did hydrate my skin pretty well and didn't cause me to break out, but it just wasn't quite as good to me as the old stuff so I'm going to keep looking. The biggest downside to this product is the price. It's $70 for .05 oz jar that doesn't last very long at all. It also smells very strong. My boyfriend doesn't even want to be around me after I put it on because I smell like fingernail polish remover. Overall, it's a pretty good product and I recommend it to someone who can afford it and deal with the smell, unfortunately I can't.
I bought this as a temporary moisturizer while I found something I liked when my favorite one was discontinued. I really dislike this product. I have dry (especially my t-zone) and sensitive skin. The package said it was for dry/sensitive skin BUT it broke me out and did not hydrate my skin at all. I have little bumps all over my forehead and chin and my cheeks are really flaky. I will not buy this product again and do not recommend it.

I never have worn perfumes in the past, but that all changed when I found Fantasy by Britney Spears. It smells soooo good and I get tons of compliments on it. I have to disagree that it smells like vanilla, maybe it's just that it doesn't on me though. Fragrances smell differently on different people. I wish it was a little cheaper, but that's ok, I will buy it again anyway. It's an everyday must for me to wear this. It's funny that I'm a fan of something by Britney Spears...oh, and it comes in a pretty little bottle ^_^

I don't see why this product is getting such bad reviews. I bought this in the red neutralizer because my t-zone tends to stay a little red. This really made my skin tone look more even and the red goes unnoticed. The first time I put it on it made my pale face look yellow so I have to be careful and not use too much. I shake a little powder out on the lid, dab my brush in it, and tap it to get the excess powder off (plus this stuff is too expensive to waste) and it looks great. I will buy this again, but I do wish it were cheaper. This is the most I have ever spent on make-up.
I have very dry, sensitive skin and was looking for a new foundation that wouldn't irritate my skin and this stuff is great! I have tried drugstore brands, but they weren't good enough for my face. I have to be very careful what I put on because I will turn red, dry out, or break out. If you are one of those people then you should try this foundation. It makes my skin look refreshed and doesn't irritate me. It also lasts longer than the cheaper ones I have used in the past. I will buy this again as it is my favorite foundation to date. It's also not too expensive.
I LOVE this moisturizer! I have very dry, dull, sensitive skin and this did wonders for my face. My t-zone stays red and I have to be very careful what I put on my skin or I will get irritated, break out, or dry out. I bought this stuff because of the great reviews I read on this site and I'm so glad I did! After about 3 days of using it, I went to work and a guy asked me if I did something different to my hair and I hadn't. He said something about me just looked better and I knew it had to be my skin. I was practically glowing! I'm 21 years old and my face hasn't looked this good since before puberty. My t-zone is a lot less red and there are no dry patches. This stuff is pricey, but this is your skin we're talking about! Besides, once you open the jar you will see that it will last a very long time. If you have dry skin try it like this: put it all over your face before bed. don't wash your face in the morning and before you put on your make-up just put the cream on your driest areas (for me it's my t-zone).
