I really like this, I am on my second tube... I have had problems with rosacea for years and I do believe this is part of the reason for most of my redness going away. I use this in AM and PM, sometimes in the AM before makeup and use one pump of Neutrogena oil free moisturizer for sensitive skin, then a a smallish dollop of this and stipple the two on the back of my hand to mix then apply to my face. I saw someone of Youtube recommend these two togeither as a good makeup base. Would have to agree, but I also just like the 3 in1 alone and I use Physicians formula mineral powder as my foundation. SIDE NOTE; I suspect my stopping liquid foundations which always break me out and using the mineral powder along with the 3 and 1 have helped my skin a lot. Only improvement would be a pump dispenser.

No likey... at all.... But, my sole purpose for use was as an eye concealer. Not good for me. AT ALL. WAYYY to dry and not spreadable for me. Back to the store it went..
Not the worst mascara I have tried, but I don't like the large brush, can't get to the roots of the lashes. It's is buildable, though.
My mother wore this her whole life and it actually came out the year she was born, 1927. I grew up with her wearing it, but never actually realized she was wearing perfume, that's just how I thought my mom smelled! A very lovely, soft, sophisticated, everyday scent that worked with her, and I started to wear it some as an adult. We had a hard time finding it for a while in the late eighties and 90's, until it was repackaged and the price went through the roof! Best place to purchase is online, price much better than from Sephora. Lovely, lovely, classic scent, I hope it is never done away with.
Nice feel and coverage, BUUUUTTT... Makes me breakout... CAN'T use the stuff.

Okay, I've been using this as a straight moisturizer and eye makeup remover for about 4 months. It removes eye makeup VERY well, by the way. I have roseacea and combination oily skin at 45 years of age. I wanted to try and see if it would calm down the rosacea and just in general. Well, been using it faithfully and it seems to be helping. Redness is diminished and I don't have as many breakouts. I can't attribute this to anything else. I decided to give it time and not judge too quickly.. Seems to have paid off for me. I will continue using, may add a drip of tea tree in it after I wash my face at night.
I really looove this scent! Right up my alley as soft, not overly sweet, slighty fruity and slighty powdery! My only complaint is that it doesn't stay with me very long! I like the lotion as well and perhaps layering the two would help, but I like something a bit more potent. Perhaps if they made it in an EDP it would stick more. Course, the price would go up.
