My experience with this body balm was rather disappointing - the brand is pretty hyped up and very expensive, so I had high expecations. I found that it only delivered a light amount of moisture for my relatively dry skin, and was mostly absorbed really quickly, but not without leaving a waxy feeling on my skin.The packaging, which many people seem to appreciate a lot, I found impractical and in …Read more

What a beautiful product - very moisturizing for the lips, and it makes them look very shiny and plump. I had the untinted version, and used it mostly as an intensive treatment at night. I found it just as replenishing as the Lip Sleeping Mask by Laneige. I will definitely repurchase, and maybe a one of the slightly tinted versions to use it also during the day. Clarins just hits the nail on the …Read more

I have a travel size of this, and at first, I thought I wouldn´t like it. It contains big grains of salt, and I thought they´d feel unpleasantly harsh on my scalp but no - the salt doens´t feel scratchy at all, it actually dissolves. Still, this shampoo gives a wonderful lather and cleanses perfectly - and still my hair didn´t feel parched afterwards, it was still silky and shiny (I used …Read more

Wow, this is much better than I thought! I love serums and treatments by Paula´s Choice, but in spite of the great ingredients, often the daily moisturizers are just not the right fit for my skin. So I had a sample of this (Resist Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid) and was impressed right when I put it on. Yes, it´s very fluid, but that doesn´t bother me. It provides ample moisture while …Read more

It provides my skin with gentle but really effective sun protection and enough moisture - no irritation, breakouts and on top of that, it makes my skin look radiant without looking greasy. Unfortunately though, it feels slightly sticky or waxy on my skin, like a layer that never quite sinks in. For that reason, I would probably not buy the fullsize (I uused a few samples).

I own two of the Jouer Lip Creams, due to the fact that everyone seems to rave about them and I haven´t heard a single bad review yet. But they just aren´t for me, I´ve tried to wear them and love them, but no matter if I wear nothing, or lip balm, or lip primer underneath, no matter if I apply lots or little - they just feel heavy and thick on my lips, and the color cracks when I smile. I don´t …Read more

Jan/18/2017

This is a pretty rich serum with a pleasant "green"scent - but as a serum, oftentimes actually too rich for my skin. It works well in the cold of winter, but in less harsh weather conditions, it left me on the verge of greasy, sometimes even without moisturizer on top, even though my skin needs lots of moisture. I even suspect that sometimes it made me break out. What I look for in a …Read more

After all the hype on youtube, magazines and blogs, this really doesn´t meet my expectations. It feels like a cleanser with some peeling particles, it doesn´t irritate my skin, but also doesn´t make it feel or look better than usual. Doesn´t even give me a wellness-spa-feeling, except i start thinking of its price....I´m not impressed.

Unfortunately, this doesn´t work for me at all. Not only does it only give my lashes average volume and length...nothing that couldn´t be achieved with any other, way cheaper mascara. But it also flakes off during the day, even though I don´t rub my eyes. By early afternoon I have black residue underneath my eyes (even though I only use it on my upper lashes!), and, the worst of it: small flakes …Read more

I´m completely surprised by all the positive review for this product. They were what actually compelled me into buying it, and I have seldom been so harshly disappointed. This is not only a fail for me in terms of that it doesn´t do what it says (I used it three times before throwing it away, but no intensified tan whatsoever), but it also smells more than just a bit unpleasant and coats the skin …Read more
