awesome lught gentle and refreshing scent, I just got it today and adore it already - will buy and buy and buy when I run out, for sure!!! <3
this is the first product I have tried from Demeter and I am amazed with the scent. Not that I'd know how thunderstorm should smell but this smells like wet moss and earth during and after a thunderstorm, dark and murky, and I can totally relate to it. It reminds me of an ex that used to have a bit similar scent and I still remember it today after more than 10 years. I love masculine scents and I look forward to test other two Demeters I got in a swap, I only wish this little splash came with a spray nozzle, not just a regular bottle opening. No idea if I'd buy but I'd certainly swap or buy a mini splash if I could find it. I use too many scents at once.

got this second hand halfway used because I was tempted by cocoa and I wouldn't buy it new for more because I never tried it in person. I like that the scent lingers for a long time and there IS cocoa in it definately but it is SO SWEET that its almost nauseating. like hot cocoa with 5 spoons of sugar. I never put sugar in my cocoa. I am glad I paid only $10 for it because it will be up for grabs again. I just can't stomach all the sweetness, maybe for someone under 25 but not for me. giving it 3 only for lasting power and because I can smell it on myself which isn't often the case, in fact I'd give it around 2.8 if that was possible, I also like the industrial packaging. scent alone would be less than 2/5

can't see why the rating is so low; lightweight non greasy daily standard moisturizer, absorbed quickly, light smell similar to steam cream. no redness or itching except be careful not to get it near your eyes. this has no anti aging, whitening, brightening or similar properties, just your good old moisture fix. my skin is sensitive and redness prone, sometimes dry in winter, with oily t-zone in summer. I bought a travel size on ebay for a good price, I'd repurchase for that or similar price certainly as I am a cheap girl lol.
I tried this in store today, I am nw10-15 and it shows on my hand nice and subtle, just the right intensity I want a blush to be. I have had problems with rosacea my whole life and can't imagine wearing a bright blush so this is second one, after nico, that I am getting from Nars because it's impossible to overdo and I am not good at blending. I have to say I don't get it why darker skinned people *have* to give it negative reviews, I mean, not everything is meant for everyone, right, like, I wouldn't review or buy a bronzer or a very bright blush because thats just not the thing for me and I don't think it's offensive that a brand makes a blush meant for us fair skinned ladies once in a few years? I am definately buying as soon as I gather funds, and oh, the color is something betweek pink and peachy, but more towards light peachy on me, not a blush like gazillion others. And thankfully without shimmer or glitter. HTH!

horrible, just sat on my face and did nothing and then when I wanted to put my foundation started peeling in big chunks. Spent almost the whole jar because I ordered it on ebay so couldn't return it but its one of biggest misses ever!!! I hope this isn't being produced anymore and I am sorry for anyone who bought this thinking they're getting a product worth of their money!
my new HG nude!!! I am nw15 with pretty pigmented lips and this looks just the right kind of nude, don't need lipglass or lipliner and doesn't look frosty at all, more like amplified. Would buy anytime again,its AMAZING!
too thick formula for me, light pink with some peachy undertone, didn't flatter my nw15 complexion at all :( too bad because it looked lovely on the photos. I tried adding cromagraphic nude pencil and Myself lipstick but it didn't look well and I had to wipe it... up for swap it goes!
