this cream smells wonderful and feels great. It seems greasy but over the winter it really felt okay on my normal/combo skin. I dont think i would use it in the summer. Given that it's quite heavy, I use only very little each day (about half a finger tip) and it's sufficient. It's heavy but doesnt break me out.

I also used this in conjunction with the toner and cleanser …

i got this for free because my best friend didnt like it. she wanted something sheer and she said it's a little bit too dark for her. I'm not as pale as her so this fit me okay, although it's still a little bit light. But it blends with my skin quite well so it doesn't look weird at all. I wanted good coverage and this definitely gives me what i want. I use only very little …Read more

this TM gives sheer coverage while providing spf protection.

it's a good deal for the price, compared to other TMs.

given the limited shade range, i got a shade that's a tad bit too light, but the next shade up would be tad bit too dark. it still blends well with my skin though. not a noticeably wrong shade.

i still need a TM with a little bit more …

i bought this because it was on sale and i wanted a moisturizer with spf in it...
it's cheap, and i guess it's good for the prize.

it's quite thick in consistency and texture, so i wouldn't recommend it to someone with oily skin.

it doesnt break me out or anything. and i guess clean & clear is an okay drug store brand.

i dont love it …

it's hard to find a powder sunscreen, let alone one that works well! but this is the one i've been looking for.

pros --
major convenience - it's powder form and built-in brush gives the convenience i need.
great protection - it protected me all summer long!
no smell, no shimmer whatsoever... it's just a powder!
you dont need a mirror to do …

this is a great moisturizer for combo skin. i'm almost done with the tube now and i definitely think that this is what contributed to my improved skin condition!

the smell is awesome. texture is light. the colour looks natural. it just makes me feel so good when i put it on.

it is expensive though. and it doesn't have spf. but still worth it!

this cream is a must for winter. I didn't use in during the summer as it doesn't offer any protection from the sun.

the smell is great and it's very moisturizing. leaves my hands soft and supple but not greasy at all.

again, this is a must for winter!

the only downside is that it's a little bit expensive and it's hard to squeeze the last …

When I tried it in the store, I put too much on. I didn't know the colour was so intense. So i wiped maybe half of it off before it dried and what was left was the perfect rosy glow!

Now I put it on in the morning, maybe 1 teardrop for both cheeks, and 10 hours later, it's still there! I repowered once during the day and it still kinda shows (maybe the powder rubs …

Lotions/ Creams - St. Ives - 24-Hour Moisture Lotion

it's okay. not moisturizing enough, even though my legs/skin aren't that dry to begin with. skins feels dry after 2.4 hours rather than 24.


i also hate having to stand the bottle upside down when it's almost done to get the product out. and coz the top is so small it is hard to balance.

it lathers up nice and cleans well. but it doesnt make my face any clearer or reduce blackheads etc. it's a good basic, i think, but i think something even cheaper can do the same job.
