I got a deluxe sample of this with a GWP. Skincare buzzkill Paula Begoun has a lot of reservations about his product but I really like it. It's neither too light nor too heavy and absorbs quickly. It has a pleasant, fruity fragrance that doesn't linger. The Arcona website lists a mind boggling list of benefits this product allegedly offers and I can't imagine even a fraction of …Read more

This is a really nice cuticle oil that comes in a nail polish style container. It smells like coconut and works very nicely. My only complaint is that the brush could be either stiffer or shorter. I like this better than gels because it's easier to control and not as messy. Like!

This is a really nice sunscreen. It's got zinc oxide as one of the sunscreen ingredients but it doesn't leave much of a white cast. I never find it irritating on my skin which is not true for most sunscreens. It's very light which is interesting considering that it's from la mer. I think it's meant to be used in conjunction with a heavier face cream so they …Read more

I got a deluxe sample of this with a GWP. It's a fabulous cleanser. It's effective but not too drying and it smells wonderful. It's very expensive for a cleanser but practically a bargain by la mer standards. Likey!

I got a deluxe sample of this with a GWP. I like this lotion a lot but it's very expensive for what you're getting. It's light, it absorbs fast, and it smells great. I enjoyed using it and would happily buy it but I'm not comfortable with its price point. If the price of this doesn't bother you, you might like it a lot.

I got a deluxe sample of this with a GWP. I like it a lot. It's a thick creme that is especially nice on the dry, irritated skin that I get from using Retin A. But it's crazy how expensive is and the jar packaging isn't hygienic and antioxidants don't like being exposed to air and light. Still, I look forward to getting it with another GWP as it's such a nice product …Read more

I got a deluxe sample of this in a GWP. It reminds me a lot of creme de la mer in that it's a very thick cream that feels very soothing on the skin. Please don't be wooed by any of the promised their marketing is making. The jar packaging is assures that any of the anti aging ingredients degrades quickly. It is, however, a nice thick soothing moisturizer. The thickness, I think …Read more

This product has improved the look and feel of my skin more than anything else has. Ever. Having said that, I think to realize that likely what's so special about it is that it has a timer and it tells you when to start and stop. I wonder if I would be getting similar results if I was using a cleanser with my fingers or a soft cloth for a similar amount of time. I don't really care …Read more

Cleansers - JILL STUART Beauty - Cleansing Oil [DISCONTINUED]

Apr/14/2011

This is a very nice cleansing oil. The packaging is ultra princessy and it smells great and doesn't have a taste. The cleansing action is similar to shu. It removes everything but it isn't such a deep deep clean. It's very expensive to get if you live in the US and for that reason alone I won't repurchase-- I would absolutely buy this if it becomes available here. If you …Read more

I had high hopes for this cleansing oil. I'm on the lookout for something to replace my beloved Shu that I can get in the US without having to order over the internet. This cleansing oil is much thicker than the shu and I don't think that's a good thing. The fragrance isn't bad but it does have an unpleasant taste should you manage to get any in your mouth. YSL isn't …Read more
