I'm on my second bottle of Cristalle Eau Verte. I have to say i absolutely adore it! it works magic with my body chemistry. I get why someone finds it masculine because my friend liked it on me so much she sprayed some on her wrist, we both agreed that it smelled like men's cologne on her - musky and woody (weird!). but on me it smells citrusy at first, which is perfect for Hong Kong summer, after half an hour or so it dries down to a beautiful floral note. The only thing to complain about is the staying power, i have to re-apply during/after lunch. Gotta figure out a way though now that i have the 100ml bottle!
Treatments -Aesop - Parsley Seed Anti Oxidant Serum (Face)

I was in the market for an antioxidant serum (was using Ole Henriksen's Truth Serum before but the smell was too much). I've read all the great reviews here about this one, the price was pretty good considering how much you've got! and it's organic. I really wanted to like it. After cleansing and toning I put this serum on, it is quite sticky but absorbs okay. In 3 hours or so I got an oil film on my t-zone and my cheeks feel tight. After using half a bottle ( a month and a half coz I put it on my chest too), my skin condition is actually worse. i've got a few whiteheads and a big zit on my chin (i never get breakouts). So i'll continue using this on my chest and the search for the perfect antioxidant will continue (think i'll try Skinceuticals next)!
I first got in touch with it on a long haul flight to Australia, it was there in the bathroom and it felt like a glass of cool water on my thirsty face. I immediately ran out to buy a big tube (170ml), it cost me about $50. Pretty cheap for the size. It was great for my combo skin, hydrating and not making my t-zone oily. AND it cleared up the whitehead on my forehead (that was the only problem my skin had) and kept it smooth. That was my first tube a year and a half ago. Recently i received a bottle as a gift, and it was no longer doing wonders for me. it didn't cause me to breakout or anything (I don't really have breakouts though, thank goodness), but it's making my t-zone SOOOOOOO oily in just an hour or so it was disgusting! so, in the bin it goes. switched to Ole Henriksen's Three Little Wonders at night and just the serum in the morming plus Dior's SPF 50 moisturiser, my skin's perfect again - matt with invisible pores.
