I am pretty in love with the whole Vit E line. I love how it smells and they are all so moisturizing! This is meant for all skin types, and I have sensitive/combination skin that can be really prone to acne in some areas and yet can be very dry during the winter too, to the point of itchiness and peeling. I use this on all the winter nights and I wake up with considerably brighter/smoother skin. My only gripe is the packaging which can be unhygienic, but since I only use this after washing my face/hands it's not so bad. It would still be better if it came in a tube from though, but it's already a very good moisturizer as it is.

Don't know why this product doesn't have better reviews/ratings. I am now pretty in love with the whole Vitamin E line, it feels very natural but yet so very moisturizing (and they all smell great!) I was looking for something really moisturizing for the dry Canadian winter and my skin had started peeling (which is unusual so I was pretty worried and needed something to soothe my skin which were itchy in some areas due to over-dryness). And this cream worked like a dream. My irritated skin calmed down within two days (or less) and became very smooth, supple and it looked considerably brighter. The itch was gone too! I wear it under my make up in the day and use the Vit E night cream for the night all through winter. Will probably be repurchasing it I don't find any more wondrous moisturizer!

As a disclaimer, I don't have much experience with eye creams to judge how good this is. Nevertheless, I love how this smells - I can't put a word to it but all I can say is, it smells very comforting, and lovely. I love how it feels on my skin as well. However I still have some fine lines after using this for a few months... I'll probably not repurchase it since there are many other eye creams out there to try out.
This concealer feels amazing on my face - very light and "airy." It manages to cover most of my blemishes (I recently had a bout of bad breakouts) except the really red ones which honestly, almost no concealer can hide, anyway. It has a nice matte finish and keeps me looking "awake" when I use it under my eyes. My only gripe is the packaging because I find it rather insanitary and inconvenient: it has a brush applicator which I think might breed bacteria if it comes in contact with acne or what not! I usually apply this to the back of my hand before using a brush to apply. I wish it had a tad bit more coverage but it is good enough for anyone without severely inflamed skin.
I finally bought this product after reading so many good things about it and I absolutely do not regret it! I bought mine in creme brulee; i wanted a nude colour which won't look too "ghostly" and this one came out pretty natural looking! It goes on really evenly and it=t feels really good on my lips too; it feels super moisturizing which is wonderful. I think the brighter colours are more pigmented than this colour (when I tried out the testers at the store) but I don't mind, it's still pretty pigmented. I will most probably get more in other brighter colours (like tutti frutti, it's a brilliant coral)
This leaves me skin feeling super soft and refreshed after I use it. My purpose of using this toner is not really to remove make up since I usually wash my makeup away with a proper make up remover followed by a face wash, so I'm not sure how good this is to remove make up alone (although i'm sure toners aren't really supposed to remove make up). Granted, I haven't had a lot of experience with toners but this one still works well. In fact I notice that my skin has been looking clearer and feeling softer since I started using this...
