Moisturizers -Kinerase - Kinerase Lotion with SPF 30

I tried a sample of this, and thought I was getting the regular kinerase lotion (without SPF). Although it feels beautiful going on, it ends up feeling quite chalky and dry on the face after drying. I haven't used it enough to notice any benefit, but waaaaaaaaaay too much $ for something that feels slightly "off". I guess it might be good for really hot days, but again....to much $ for a sunscreen.
This is great! I love that this bronze shade is not too brown. It's actually more of a coral/pinkish bronze to me. This color looks fabulous with my coloring (auburn hair, fair with hazel eyes). Very nice for night, but you could probably get away with it for day with less dramatic eye liner. Also, the lasting power is great, I really love clinique eye shadows. The new case is so pretty, too.
I really thought I would like this since I love gardenia, and love marc jacobs clothes. I thought this was pretty artificial smelling, and there was a musty note on me that was very off-putting. Too bad.
I love lemon, but this was way too sweet. I also can't shake that 'cheap' smell that all avon/mark scents have.
Love this on my husband, really sexy but NOTHING like the original polo, thank goodness. Woodsy, spicy, nice.
Ehhh....it's ok. It really does remind me of the ocean, but it's just not the kind of perfume I'd wear. I'd really like this in a candle or room fragrance. Also, as true for all demeter, lasting power stinks.
I am so confused by all the good reviews! All this reminded me of was a dryer sheet! I tried it twice, but couldn't shake the sense that I rubbed myself with fabric softener, :-0 I just don't see what all the raves are for? EDIT: Ok, I gave it a few more shots...and surprise, it really dries down to a nice soft vanilla type scent, very subtle. I upped my review to 4 lippies, but it still has that initial 'dryer sheet' scent, although that fades pretty quickly!
I love gardenia scents like this....very realistic and not 'fake' plasticky. Although this is a lovely scent, it's very one-dimentional....I liked child much better. Even monyette is a tad more intersting, even though that one is a touch too sweet. I think this is just kind of boring, I expected it to change a bit after wearing it for a while.
Oh my, this is not my style at all. First of all, I usually don't care about packaging that much, but this bottle is really ugly to me, kind of a turn off. This fragrance is really too sweet, and I can't help but smell a whiff of 'pipe' tobacco. I picked up a sample, and it went from one spray on my wrist directly to trash. I smelled that pipe smell all day, so I guess one lippie for staying power.
This is a really nice scent, very different than most department store types. But when I first put it on, it reminded me of Narciso Rodriguez and although I generally like that on others, something instinctively makes me feel a bit nauseated when I smell it. The drydown on this was soft and lovely, I really liked it, but that first musky scent was too much of a turnoff for me. EDIT- I am falling in LOVE! This fragrance is really beautiful, and something kept making me spray it on throughout the day for a few days. I don't smell that off-putting musk opening note, anymore. Now it's all just warm, but yet light and soft. Kind of airy in the way Dune used to smell to me....that was my first 'love' LOL! So nice to find something NOT flowery, but not like a spice den, either.
Wanted to like this....it had all the notes that I love, but I just have a thing about Guerlain, waaaaaaay too much. Is that the 'aldehyde' notes? It really is a nice scent from afar, but something about it is headache inducing to me, and it's pretty much like that w/ all their scents to me.
Really pretty gloss! I'm really liking Mac lipglasses...they are a little sticky, but that's probably why they have pretty good staying power. This color is a nice pinkish neutral beige on me, with really pretty shimmer.

My favorite face lotion right now! This has everything I was looking for in one product...AHA exfoliants, spf and moisturization. It also doesn't break out my combo skin. Nice scent...real quality product, I will probably try other products from this line and the neostrata line!
I heard raves about this from this site and my girlfriends.....no difference on my hair :-( Smells great, but you can find just as good for cheaper in the drugstore!
I love this! Beautiful golden mauve gloss, looks great with a tan, but I think it will look nice in winter as well. I took one lippie off for stickiness, but I think that's the reason it has pretty good staying power.
