I was surprised at how runny and lotion-like this product is now. I remember it being more creamy and spreadable. It was sloppy and messy to use and left an odd plastic-like film on my face. Not really hydrating but it wasn't drying either. On the upside, this did not irritate or sting my face or eyes in any way and no breakouts. After 6 weeks of use, with Elizabeth Arden Prevage serum …Read more

I really like this product and I am seeing visible results. However, my skin is becoming so sensitized by it that I've got to limit its usage to just two nights a week. The odd thing is that this product doesn't irritate my skin but anything I place on top of it stings like mad. Even the next day, my usual innocuous serum and sunscreen burn my face. So even though I think it's …Read more

Yes I agree with all the other reviewers here that Allure's best years are over. Michelle Lee has taken a remarkable magazine and destroyed it. Not only have the best picks and in-depth descriptions on new products and cosmetic science been stripped out, but most of the the biggest advertisers (Estee Lauder) have dropped Allure too. I am letting my subscription lapse as well as it's not …Read more

I am really enjoying this foundation. I bought it in porcelain and it's a great match. The foundation goes on like a dream but it does require a second layer for those bad skin days. The look is initially flawless because not only does it feel fantastic on your skin but it looks so incredibly natural. On long stressful days I have noticed it starts to fade away by 4 o'clock but I also …Read more

For starters, I have a terribly ruddy complexion in which my entire face is red. I had high hopes for this but I'm not using it as much as I would like. First off, it's very pigmented, thick, and extremely difficult to spread out. The first time I used this I looked like the Wicked Witch of the West; I was that green. Obviously, I used too too much. However, on the plus side, even just …Read more

I'm on my second jar of this and I do like it. My face looks rested and clearer while using it. The cream is not heavy at all and the fragrance is faint and pleasant, not overpowering. I love that it has sunscreen protection and it's been the perfect winter moisturizer for keeping dry flaky skin away. I cannot attest to any miraculous anti-aging benefits, but just a good face cream for …Read more

Not only am I using this cream but also the eye and SPF 30 versions too. This version I use at night and I really like it. The cream is light and absorbent and I wake up to better looking skin. The AHA in this is really helping my skin look freshly renewed. However, the SPF 30 version is impossible for foundation. I love the high sunscreen, but when putting liquid foundation over it, the cream …Read more

Currently, I am trying three less expensive long-wearing foundations and I really like this foundation. The color is great in natural ivory and matches my skin tone. It looks very natural on me and does not oxidize at the end of the workday like Cover Girl Outlast in the same shade does. So far no skin drying or acne, just good-looking coverage and wear. I do blot a bit in the afternoon, but I do …Read more

This is an excellent foundation and goes on sale, so it's a fantastic deal. Not only was the color match great, but it made me look much better when wearing it. The thick liquid consistency is not easy to spread but with a moisturizer underneath it works. My uneven, blotchy and scarred complexion really was transformed. However, this transformation only lasted until early afternoon. I do use …Read more
