To help all you ladies make a decision about whether this is worth the money, I have to tell my story. This brand is definitely my HG. I continue to add products to my collection because nothing seems to compare. I bought this cream because I had so much luck with other products and then, after struggling with the money, I retuned it. I was convinced I could find something better for less. Wrong. So, so, wrong. After not using my Cle de Peau for a week I could not believe how horrible my eyes began to look. I would touch under my eye and the skin would not go back to it's normal position. The wrinkles were out in full force. I looked 10 years older. Needless to say, I have reordered my Cle de Peau and anxously await it's arrival as I sit and type this. To me, this is worth every single penny and I will never, ever stray from it again. I gave up Frye boots for this stuff if that doesn't say it all!

I use this in combination with the Cle de Peau Gentle Cleansing Foam and my skin feels and looks amazing. After using all over my face a few times, I learned that I need to use a little less on my t-zone and more on my cheeks. Although very expensive, this has replaced my Shiseido sirum so it ended up costing about $55 more than I would normally spend. I will continue to use it as long as I can afford it.
I have combination skin (dry cheeks, oily t-zone). I received a sample of this at Neiman Marcus and purchased a regular tube as soon as it ran out. My face has never felt smoother or looked better! No doubt the Cle de Peau line if expensive, but I believe you get what you pay for and the tube should last months. I do see the water bead up on my face when I'm done cleansing, which may leave the impression that there's a film, but the results speak for themselves. If there's a film on my face... I'll take it : ) I'll continue to use as long as I can afford it.
I never expected that I would pay over $100 for foundation, but I can already confirm...when my Cle De Peau Tient Naturel Satine runs out... I'll be buying another one. This is the best foundation I have ever used. It makes my skin look and feel incredibly smooth and the color is perfect. It's like I'm wearing nothing, yet my skin looks flawless. I've used a zillion of foundatios in my life, some of which cost a mint, but never received compliments like I do now. One person said my skin was glowing and told her husband that if her face could look like mine she'd hand over $100 in a split second. I can even sleep in this make-up and my face still looks great in the morning. Worth every penny! I am an NW20 in MAC and am wearing the O10, if that helps anyone.
