This removes most of my makeup and rinses clean. It smells a little like olive oil and it isn't drying or irritating to the eyes.I won't repurchase because it has trouble removing my non-waterproof mascara, and long wearing eyeliner sometimes. I want instant gratification. If I remember correctly the Clinique balm dissolved everything very quickly, but it was drying... ill try the travel size of that one next.Not a bad product, I would recommend to try it.

Now, before we start, a little disclaimer: I am not the target audience for this cream, not by a mile - I'm 25 with combination skin and just a few fine lines, and while my skin tends to be tired and dehydrated, it doesn't need quite the level of moisture that the EGF cream offers. But I had a couple of samples of this cream and thought I'd try it out anyway.So, for starters, this cream is really rich - in fact it's far too rich for me, but most face creams are. The texture is thick and oily, greasy almost. That being said, it doesn't actually take very long to absorb, and can be worn under makeup without affecting it. A tiny amount of cream goes a long way - I concentrated on the drier areas of my face, because I suspect it would have made the oilier bits of me break out. Despite the immediate texture, it was a comfortable wear and did not make my face particularly shiny or oily - it just left it thoroughly rehydrated.On the down side, despite DHC claims that it "helps minimize fine lines", the cream did absolutely nothing for the fine lines on my forehead. I had high hopes, considering how expensive this is (£75 a pot), but I wasn't impressed on that front.One final piece of warning - this stuff smells terrible! Like dusty old egg yolk. I'm not sure what the scent is due to, but it doesn't really wear off, even when worn under makeup. It isn't a particularly strong smell, but one I really dislike and so it bothered me for as long as I was wearing it. All in all, I wouldn't personally purchase the full-sized product. I do think people with drier, more mature skins would find this is a very good moisturiser for every day wear, but do not expect this to be a reliable wrinkle cream.

These undereye strips are the Idols of eye treatments - they're fun, they shine bright and burn fast.These feel nice and cool and refreshing - I like to apply them in the morning - and have a very visible, very fast-acting effect: they make your eyes look less puffy and tired, minimise dark circles and generally make you look like you've had a nice long night of sleep. They also wear off relatively fast, and a few hours in the terrible truth comes out: you've slept 3 hours and it shows.As a result these are excellent fast-acting boosters when you need to look your best - in the morning before a shoot, or in the evening before a big date or event. When getting ready, remove them at the very last minute (i.e. just before doing your makeup/leaving the house). Just don't expect it to last all day, Cinderella.

The reviews on this product baffle me, because it sounds like people are reviewing completely different products! I can only talk about my own experience of it but it seems to be radically opposed to many others. I had samples of this cream that I started using up before moving on to the full-size pot. Each sample would last me about a week, as really only a tiny amount of product is needed. I've tried using this cream both in the morning and evening to see which I liked better. Verdict: I find the cream too greasy for daytime application. I have combination skin that generally can't deal with oily textures, and this cream takes a very long time to absorb into my skin. If used during the daytime, it would dry as a shiny oily residue that would be visible even under makeup. Dermalogica has better day creams. As a night cream, on the other hand - it's amazing! I put it on immediately before bed, and I've been seeing the benefits of it from day 1 or 2. At 25 I have fine lines under my eye and was beginning to get crow's feet - those are now gone and my fine lines dramatically reduced, after just a week of use. My undereye area is also less sunken and I have less noticeable dark circles, even on five hours of sleep. In the morning I find I look more youthful and alert. Altogether very happy with this cream!

This is one of the gazillion DHC samples I'm currently using up and reviewing. I've used it every day for the past 2 weeks and I'm very impressed!I normally use DHC's Pore Face Wash, which smells great but leaves my skin feeling a little tight - this does nothing of the sort. It foams up very well and leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh without any of the drying feeling I get from most cleansers. No tightness at all, even on days when I was lazy and skipped the moisturizer! It also helped clear up a random breakout I'd been having for weeks. I love that the soap is completely clear and see-through - I'm not sure why, I find it oddly satisfying. It isn't scented, which I can appreciate.The sample size lasted me 2 whole weeks of daily use (including three times where I was travelling and chose to use it as a body soap too - it was great and I was squeaky clean - literally), but I could probably have extended it to three weeks if I'd been more careful. I'm not sure how it compares to the mini size that you can buy on the DHC website.Would probably repurchase for travel, but at the moment I've got a stock of minis to get through.
