I will add my voice to the pantheon of the reviewing crowd.
I have been a devoted lover/user of Erno Laszlo products, I adore the square-shaped plastic bottles especially the four-ounce size because that was the original plastic that the good doctor used. I know I am som far-off Eve Lom subject. Back I go to my review.
Upon thoroughly looking at my skin in a magnifying mirror(horror of horrors)I came to the conclusion that I was overdue for a change. As one might guess I read every review on many sites. I looked at Nordstrom but of course, Make-up Alley was my first stop so I hit the ground running. I found a six-ounce jar on eBay for under sixty dollars, somehow I knew this would work for me...and it did.
I do miss using an astringent, but truly no matter how I try to convince myself, astringent, which contains alcohol is too much my skin. After the very thorough cleansing, which I love, I followed the directions to the letter and found the experience(that's what it is)to be so luxurious that I particularly look forward to using this when I've had a long or tiring day.
I have only been using the cleanser for five nights so obviously it is far too soon to make a final determination but my instinct tells me that I am probably right.
One final opinion, I love the scent and how it blossoms with the warm, wet cloth, which by the way I have been using a microfiber dusting/household one till the mislin ones arrived and frankly I prefer the looped microfiber, probably because it holds more of the steam on the face, which is a good thing.
Update: I am still very impressed with this cleanser, in fact even more so since I wrote my earlier review. I was concerned that using just this one cream instead of my Erno Laszlo oil, then forty splashes of hot water, would cause any congestion on my nose or chin and am happy to report there is no clogging of pores anywhere on my face.
