I'm curious to read more comments on this product. I received as a sample, along with the HydraQuench Cream. It goes on beautifully, leaving your skin feeling instantly hydrated. The cream goes on well too, and has a very delicate scent. Live in Northern Ontario, so the climate is harsh, and according to description of this product, is excellent for these kinds of conditions. I'm not working for a couple of days, therefore I can skip the makeup and really give this a trial. The samples I received are definately good for a about 5 days. Can't wait to read more reviews!
Gift with Purchase -- really good size, but I'm glad I didn't pay for it. Absorbs well, moisturizes well, leaves your hands lovely and soft .... but the smell ... yuck, I don't like it, and that's all I could smell for hours afterwards. I see I'm not the only one who didn't like the smell.

I've had this product for a while, but haven't been using it religiously. After reading the previous reviews, I will definately start. I am hopeful that it will reduce some of the sun damage on my decollete. I did not realize I'd paid so much for it though!

I said I would buy this product again, but actually I don't know. Husband gave me a lovely golden gift box which contained a large tub of this. It certainly goes on well, and feels luxurious - but what exactly is it supposed to do?? And when to apply -- before or after moisturizer? Also, am not sure if it's this, or the EA face cream that accompanied it that makes my eyes water.

Bought this today and am already a fan. SA put it on me in store, over my end-of-day make up face, and it looked great. Came home and tried it myself. I agree, it's best to dab it on and work into skin that way, rather than applying and smoothing. Way too expensive for a concealer -- I paid $55.00 Cdn. in Shoppers Drug Mart -- but, hey, I bought it anyway!
Thanks Tamathy -- great idea -- I ripped off the sponge and got way more product out of it -- too much for one use actually. If you don't take the sponge off, the pods scratch your skin. I wondered what I was doing wrong. I haven't seen any results from this product, but will continue to use until it's finished (too cheap to chuck it away). Great marketing, totally wasteful packaging, useless product.

So far, this stuff is great! SA at SDM recommended it. I've been using it for 2 weeks now and have a significant reduction in the redness on my cheeks. Unfortunately the spider veins are still there, but what a difference. I was using B. Kamins Booster Blue Rosacea Treament to no avail -- 6 months and no noticeable difference -- total waste of money. Hopefully with continued use my cheeks and I will be very happy!

Bought this product at The Shopping Channel. Used it religiously for at least 6 months, but barely noticed a difference at all. 2 weeks ago I bought Rosacure+ by Canderm Pharma Inc. at SDM and already I can see a HUGE difference in the reddness of my cheeks!! Save your money and buy Rosacure+ instead.
