In terms of how this product made my make-up look, it did a very good job. My make-up application was flawless and my face appeared just as good. However, whenever I use this product my skin endures a ridiculous break-out of little white "pimples". At first I thought it was my cleansing/skin care products, but after ceasing any use of the Primer my skin returned to normal after a few days. Now whenever I apply my make-up sans the primer, I do not experience any breakouts. I'm disappointed because I really liked the way this product made my skin look for a day, but the breakout side-effects just doesn't make it worth it.
Moisturizers -La Prairie - Anti-Aging Stress Cream

I have used a couple of La Prairie products. I started with the Stress Cream and accidentally purchased another one, of which I wasn't very fond of hence my lack of memory for its name. Upon returning to the Stress Cream, I will make sure to never replace it. My skin looks radiant and "stress" free. I use it as a night cream in conjunction with kate somerville detox daily cleanser (see my praising review) and I must proclaim, my skin hasn't looked this good in quite a long time. My skin is prone to breakouts and can get oily, especially in the T-zone; however, since using this cream again I have not experienced any negative or adverse side-effects. I know this cream is pricey, but after having such a positive experience with it and considering the numerous issues I have with my skin, I cannot envision switching to anything else.
I have been "stalking" Makeup Alley for quite some time but have never written a review, until right now. I have put my face with a plethora of face washes, from Neutragena to La Mer and now to Kate Somerville Detox Cleanser. It was the latter that prompted me to write a review. I have never felt my face feel as smooth and soft and look as good as it has been since I started using this product about one month ago. I love this product. My skin is prone to break-outs and at times can be sensitive, but to date I have experienced zero negative or adverse reaction from using this face wash.
