It's really a great skincare product. My skin is so much better after I've been using it for 2 monthes. Iv'e used it more and more this last month because I have a mixture of scaly dryness, blemishes and red marks and oiliness : using it night before I sleep, daytime, morning after steaming my face etc. Iv'e had serious problems with my skin for the last 4 years and this is the one thing that has reeallly worked to improve the quality af my skin. Its much softer, a more even skin tone, fading red marks, more even surface, more radiant. I'm not being over the top when I say that for the first time in years I would be happy to go outside without makeup and with only a little concealer around my eyes and mascara. So it feels like I am literally freed from using makeup and wearing a mask to hide my awful skin. Your skin just looks naturally radiant and healthy - not just when you put it one but also on days where you havevn't bothered. I would say however don't expect a miracle, it will improve your skin along with eating veg, avoiding picking at your skin and avoiding alcohol, it will not give you 18 yr old model skin just on its own! I use it with clarins skin energiser booster, or whatever its called! and also clarins cottonseed cleanser. The only problem is the price, I've been using it too much so I'm gonna have to find a cheaper moisturiser and cut down :( Oh and I normally am really worried about oily ooiiily skin and this is not a concern at all after using this product.
I don't get it. I read reviews which made it sound awesome (i searched 'perfume which smells like soap and glory'), including reviews about how it had changed in 2011, and I got the impression it had already changed. So I tested it on myself on three occasions and thought it smelled amazing and that I would buy it, I didn't care that it was apparantly a new version... Next minute I go to try it one last time before I want to get it and it smells totally different, and this is all in the space of three weeks since the end of April. So I tryed it again and same thing, it now smells sharp, sour, bitter orange and a bit woody and it is not half as nice, before it was fresh and sweet. I'm guessing the changeover has only just happened on the testers in store? Because i'm certain its not my nose because I have been trying it on myself each time, I have been searching for a new perfume for a month now and thought I had found it but I haven't :(............... I'm gonna try it one last time before I give up.........

This foundation is AMAZING. I have very pale skin, to the point of looking unheallthy, redness from spots, uneven skin surface, oily and sensitive. This made my skin look almost perfect, dewy but also matt, if thats possible, and fresh. It has survived crazy windy and rainy british weather, with my hair falling all over my face (which normally makes my skin shiney), and a full day at work. I keep catching myself in the mirror, I look totally different. I used to wear bare minerals powder in the lightest shade, because I like to feel like I'm not wearing makeup, but this is very light and easy to put on anyway and I would never go back to bare minerals. I bought it in shade 2 because even though it is a little darker than my skin, it is yellowish and so it covers redness and makes me look healthier. Yes its expensive, but its worth it to look this effortlessly good.
