I only use it in the wintertime. It is dryer than the mojave desert where I live, and I swear by this stuff. I put it on in the morning, after my apple cider vinegar toner. I dot it on my face all over,and then do a quick masssage on face and neck. I find it absorbs quickly so I dont look greasy.

I am so in love with this product! Bought it on a whim, on one of those feeling-pasty-pale kind of wintery days. Very easy to apply, has a touch of shimmer, just kind of wakes up your face.

This stuff scared me at first - so thick and greasy. I love it now though, especially for this time of year. Alberta winters are notoriously harsh and dry, and this stuff is awesome. Not sure if it would work as well in the summertime. It has had a very positive effect on my skin, I just wish it came in a tube like the orange cleanser (which is a sucky cleanser, IMHO). The smell is awesome too!!

I just bought the delicate sagemoss, and it is somewhat unisex, but very fresh and warm smelling. Dont think it lasts very long though!
Bring back memories, of Paris 1989. Unfortunately, it smells like a hamster cage. Also, a whiff of dirty underpants? I dont know, but it just does not work for me.
Wow, great colour. I mix in a little blob with my moisturizer as well as a tiny bit of foundation. No weird smell, no streaking, no orangey glow. They need to change the packaging though, it kind of gives you a huge blob.
Very nice blush. Easy to apply, not at all greasy. I have to reapply mid-day, but dont mind. Would love to try the other shades, but they look to be mainly brownish shades.
I would have given it a higher rating, except I notice that I have been getting flakes after a few months use. It does do a great job of softening my thick hair, lessening the frizzies that can happen in this desert dry environment. BTW, Am I the only one who LOVES the smell of it? It smells kind of fresh and soapy. My dh has one word for it : Yummy!

This is a great cream for anyone who is prone to blackheads. It has really helped my skin to look healthier, without being too drying.

I only use this product in wintertime, in the summer it makes me look like an oil slick! I mix a bit in my palm with a blob of moisturizer and a bit of self tanner, it gives me a glow without being too fake looking.

mmmm smells so yummy. more of a summer fragrance i suppose, but I love it year round. I like the "green apple" fragrance also, but it faintly reminds me of dewberry, my now-despised 'signature' fragrance circa 1992.
Blech! Kind of sickly sweet, but also a plastic smell to it.

This made my lips soooo dry, they cracked. The colour: not so good, on me at least. Too pink, kind of fake looking. The upswing: I only used it once, and gave it to my sister, who loooooves it! oh well.
Love it! I have Portobello, which is a little tricky to apply at first, but it is subtle and beautiful, not too shimmery. I also have Hoxton which is too dark for me, plus the top broke so i had to trash it. I agree, Rimmel has to do something about their packaging, pronto.
Smells good in the bottle, not so good on. To me, it seems more like an older womans fragrance, not something a young, fresh girl would wear.
