I bought the Pevonia cleanser and cream for combination skin after the products were used on my face during a facial in Turks & Caicos this summer. My face truly looked amazing and I have tried nearly every product under the sun. This cream replaced my Hope in a Jar that I used as a day cream. My skin has truly never looked better and more radiant by using the cleanser/cream combo first thing every morning. No longer do I need to use my concealer and bare minerals powder. I am so glad I was introduced to this line.

I am a perfume junky, however, this fragrance is my HG! I have worn this perfume since college, when my Mom gave it to me as a gift. It is the ONLY scent that I have continually repurchased throughout the years. I have never tired of it and always receive compliments about it when I wear it - from men and women. I agree with the other reviewers that it is all about body chemistry. Several women have stopped me asking me what I'm wearing and are often surprised when i say V.S. Rapture. But, if it works on you, you'll love it. It's just the sexiest scent, that lingers but not in an obnoxious way.
Love, love this eyebrow pencil in Stud (dark brown). It has been my HG pencil since Almay discontinued it's eyebrow pencil with the brush a few years ago. My natural eyebrows grow like a crazed vampire (i.e. sharp v) so I lost half my eyebrow the first time I waxed in college. So, precision and a somewhat natural appearance are key to any eyebrow applicator for me. After trying several pencils and powders, I settled on this. Top it off with some Benefit She-laq and my brows are perfection and staying put the entire day :-)! Definitely recommend for anyone who has sparse brows.
After reading the rave reviews for Beauty Boost, I rushed to kohl's to purchase it. I have combination skin that tends to appear dry and lifeless without the proper moisture. After two nights, I hate to say that I do not like this product at all. My skin was dry in the morning and looked terrible. To its credit, BB did not leave the oiliness in my t-zone that other night creams usually do. I really wanted to like this night cream, as i am desperately searching for the perfect hydrating night cream.
I recently bought this product and admit that it would have made my skin look flawless. However, all of the available colors were too light for my skin tone. The sales associate told me Neutrale-4 was perfect, but, when I wore it outside, I looked like a ghost, very unnatural. Although my skin tone is not deep at all, this product is not meant for people of color. It's too bad really.
I absolutely recommend this night cream for someone trying to get their skin together. I have combination skin. Although I agree that it goes on oily and appears to sit on the skin, it WILL sink into your skin. In the morning, my face looks and feels amazing. I hate to even wash it because it is so smooth and poreless. You should definitely keep this product from leaking into your eyes. It does not break me out. However, I am not really prone to break outs since I exited my mid-20's. I have tried other night creams, but i always come back to this product. UPDATED 11/6/08: After not using the product for a year, my face broke out when I tried to return to it. Either they changed the product (I noticed the packaging has changed) or my face has changed. Now that I am nearing my mid-30s, this no longer works for me as it did when I was in my mid to late 20s.
