This smells absolutely as beautiful as Mariah's songs.
I really don't like the smell of it. It's excessively scented and fake. I couldn't bring myself to use some fragrance like toner on my face. As a result, I used most of it on my neck. It didn't hydrate my skin that much as it said it would. I will certainly not purchase it again.
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - Amande Firming & Smoothing Milk Concentrate

This is the best body lotion/cream Ive ever used in my life, I have to admit!! I love the smell and texture. It leaves a smoothy feeling and terrific scent on my body. My skin is not saggy yet, I believe. Therefore, I can't tell if it firms skin or not. Having agreed with others that the bottle jar is way too heavy to carry around and bad for the hygine reason, I didn't carry on after the first bottle. If the company decided not to use a pump bottle, the least they could have done was making it lighter and easier to carry about, like a plastic jar? The packaging is a real turn-off. However, its outstanding results will make me repurchase it in the near future.
The new packaging stands out so much more for the brand than ever before!! The lotion looks a bit runny but does wonders on my skin. I purchased it coz I alwasy love the rose smell, which turned out exactly as I expected or even better! I first thought it might not be hydrating enough in winter. However, so far it's been doing extremely well on my skin. after use my skin feels very soft and looks dewy. One setback: a bit sticky. I would strongly recommend to ppl who love the smell and do not have very dry skin.
THis is probably one of the worse cosmetics I've bought. It didn't work on my acne at all apart from adding cakery layers to it. It should be called conceller. It has a very short life as well. I don't understand how it expects ppl to use it up by saying "It must be used within 1 month of purchase...and you can't use it more than **** days in a row...". The package sucks - It looks like some cheap glue used to fix shoes or something. A very disappointing product.
This is a nice gentle product as I like the fact that it's fragrance free. It cleansed my face quite well, although it might not be the best to clean up foundation. I spent about US$60 on this which was a hug rip-off. Therefore, I won't purchase it again.
Moisturizers -Biotherm - Hydra Detox Daily Moisturizing Lotion

I purchased this product before I knew it had been discontinued. It's easily absorbed. I have acne-prone skin, which gets oily in the T-zone area around mid-day. This product doesn't improve my skin in this aspect. I have been using it since winter arrived. It seems to have given my skin enough hydration it needs though. It leaves those dry spots fairly moisturized, eg, nose tip. I don't particularly love the smell. BTW, the Hydro-Detox mask did nothing to my skin except irritation. After 3 yrs of purchase, I still have about left a bottle now.
