This product line is superior at defining curl, moisturizing and eliminating frizz. I love its performance, but am less thrilled with the perfumey scent and LOUD pink packaging. Doesn't matter, it is all about performance!
One bit of advice on this one (from George, the Osmotics national training guy...) don't leave it on too long, as in letting it dry crackly-hard. It is harder to rub off that way. Like the brightening effects. Also good at making pimples less red if you dot it on at night before bed. Nice scent, nice packaging, good line.
Very fussy product, you need to let ot DRY or get a gross dry-blood color stain on your clothes. PLUS it is ridiculously costly. Didn't work for me either. Disappointing. Wonder if I still have that receipt?....it is money-back guaranteed.
I SO wanted to like this, I was intrigued by the idea of coffee and chocolate. However I agree with the other reviewer who mentioned the sweat scents (yuck!). It "dried" (?) down to a lycra-gym-short icky smell. Not appealing.

This moisturizer smooths and primes my skin for makeup. I alsways get comments on how "glowy" I look when I have used it. Great, light basic moisturizer.
Great color -- very special. Bronze-y red. Reminds me of Flair by Nars, but a little lighter and less to the berry side. Got it as a gift with purchase then had to re-purchase when I ran low (when my kid wrecked it in the tube!).
I agree, there's no blue undertones here, very warm velvety browny-red. However, it's too dark on my light complexion (very much like Mac Del Rio)! Cannot wear it, unless I dilute it with a gold gloss of some type. I wanted so much to love it. I do love Flair, however...
Finally found the perfect red! Yes, it's warm, I don't prefer heavy blue undertones. It warms up my face, looks classic and wears really well. Great formula looks moist on the lip and this is such a great value. I am in LOVE!
Bought based on fabulous reviews here...had doubts because the raves generally came from blue/green eyed beauties! I am a brown eyed girl with light skin, and it looked really "smoldery" on me...a little too dark and hollowing. Maybe I applied too mcuh, but a light swipe didn't seem to show up. I will keep experimenting because I am intrigued by the slight metallic-ness and the pretty color in the box. Interesting!
Perfect conditioner for processed or caorse hair. Completely eliminates frizz without weighing hair down. I first tried this at the Ritz Carlton hotel and LOVED how soft and perfect it made my hair. It FLIES off the shelves of the L'Occitane stores in NYC. They've recently improved the packaging (the old metal tubes were impossible to squeeze the last applications out of). This is truly a gem and worth a try for those with drier or unruly hair.
Very wearable and gives me instant polish. Was recommended to wear the pink on the lid into the crease and just use the copper to enhance the coppery eye pencil. looks great!
