I've been using the Dr Lewinn's puressence day and night cream and eye gel for about 3 years and haven't looked back. The only downside is the price. At $49.99AUD for the face cream and $39.99AUD for the eye gel they are really expensive! And they're never on sale. I'm in my mid twenties and really struggled to find a face and eye gel that was suitable for my age. All the ones on the market are either too greasy and oily or too thick like sunscreen. I love the smell and feel of the Dr Lewinn's creams. The cream is rich without being too thick and makes my skin feel awake and alive. The eye gel makes my eyes feel great and tightens the skin. I always get told that I look younger than my age. Because we pay so much for cosmetics in Australia I buy most of my beauty products online from the US and UK, but I can't find these products anywhere else except Aus. If anyone could recommend a more affordable face cream and eye cream that is good for women in the mid twenties please let me know.

This pretty little pump bottle (which has a clever base that moves up as the product runs out so don't miss out on every little drop) contains a lovely light moisturiser that purports to help skin that is suffering both blemishes and early signs of ageing. I don't know whether it works for the latter but it does seem to keep my pimples at bay. It has a refreshing orange smell and is a pale green colour. It isn't cheap but it is one of the few moisturisers that address both young and ageing skin concerns, and I would rebuy.

I did not like this moisturizer. It didn't do anything special for my skin. It didn't sink in very well, felt a little bit too waxy for my liking. I loved the smell but thats about it! Try her other moisturizers some of hers are amazing!

Light texture, unfortunately did not keep oil at bay. Would be good for normal skin but for combination/ oily... stay clear

I agree with nearly everything the reviewer before said. Oddly scented like fresh bitter orange peelings. And it didn't agree with my skin at all. Slippery but dry feeling at the same time. Strange.

I wanted to like this stuff. It seemed like it would be the perfect thing for my skin-still can't shake the oiliness but am in my mid twenties so want to start thinking about age care.

It smells strange, a lot like the intense citrus when someone is peeling an orange next to you. But, smell doesn't stop me using a product.

The texture is quite light, and when you put it on your skin, it feels very strange, almost dry but oily, if that makes any sense at all. Unfortunately it seems to pill a lot even if you use the tiniest amount - and you need to use a lot anyway in order to cover your face as it doesn't spread very well.

The pump bottle is quite nice, dispenses a decent amount of product without it going everywhere. Has one of those vacuum bases which lifts up as you use the product so you can use every bit of it.

No SPF, which is pretty silly for something which is meant to help prevent ageing.

Cost $NZ60 which is quite high for a moisturiser.

Not terribly impressed with this, and still have a lot left... hmm.
