Sure it’s moisturizing, but this $&@?! cream gave me milia under and ON MY EYELIDS. I stopped using it well over a year ago and have gotten rid of the ones under my eyes but the ones on my eyelids remain. Needless to say I’m not exactly excited at the prospect of someone making tiny incisions on my eyelid to remove them, so I’ll have to hope they go away in time. Hate this product.

I'll second pretty much everything else good that all other reviewers said. It doesn't irritate my eyes and that's huge since most things do. This is WAY pricey for such a tiny tiny bottle. I may have to do some cost comparison with my other love, Elta MD.

HOWEVER, does no one else think it smells just like shoe polish??? It's not a volatile-fumey smell, but I …

I'm a little shocked by the bad reviews but maybe this really is a product best for dry or combination skin, which I have. I think perhaps, too, that this could be considered a primer but isn't a primer in the vein that we think of them now, i.e. since Smashbox came out with their primer and we've all expected a 'cone-based primer since. Before that, priming used to be …Read more

I did only get a sample and I tried it on dry hair. I used 4 drops even though I have hair below my shoulders, thinking, "It's not going to be enough, I'm not going to see any difference." I was wrong! I am confused but impressed! I don't know how it did it but it actually made my hair instantly cool and silky....not in a slippery silicone way. I wish I could describe …Read more

This cleanser stays in the closet most of the time. I could be wrong, but I don't think it's big into removing makeup. However, when I have a time I'm breaking out, I I go to this. It just seems to clear out congestion, and make breakouts behave. I actually LOVE the scent of this cleanser.

It is pleasant enough to use, and I love the little scrubby, but honey, this cleanser is meant for OILY sensitive skin. If I had oily, sensitive skin I might be in love, but I have dry skin and this stuff stripped my face like you wouldn't believe! It is SO drying!

It seemed to do a good job of removing face make up, but I also don't wear longwear make up, so I can't …

So far, so good. I've only used it on my hands twice, but that's a pretty decent indicator, seeing as how they usually look like kamodo dragon claws, lol. In theory I don't like glycerin moisturizers, but i'll give this a chance. I bought botanical scent. At first the scent is quite strong and I regretted it, but within 5 minutes it faded WAY down to just a pleasant …Read more

I used this for a while, kept getting compliments, decided to switch to Retin-A Micro, looked like a hag, and now I'm using this 5 times a week w/ Retin-A 2x/week. Glowing. Actually, even when I was using this solo I was glowing. I don't like the strong smell, but I'm asleep 20 minutes after I use it, so no matter.

It is the perfect amount of moisture for me, plus I …

I think I made a comment about in the Realness of Concealness review, but I just have to say that don't know how I EVER lived without this. I actually use it on lids and beneath my eyes. I then put foundation over it and powder. Every once in a while it creases beneath my eyes, but certainly no worse than any other. I have been sick as a dog before and had people tell me how fabulous I …Read more
