Love this scent, and most of Jo's other fragrances! Great in warmer weather! I just wish Estee Lauder didn't get their meathooks into this company. Watch them come out with Jo Malone EVERYTHING like they did to Bobbi Brown.

Great product! Yes, it really works. Have had it on hand since 1998. Will contiue to buy. True the smell is not great, but it disappears in seconds. If you hate the smell, GET OVER IT, IT WORKS!!!

WHAT A DISASTER! You're better off paying to have a professional wax you. Really. You'll end up frustrated and disgusted due to the waste of time and the mess it causes. I laughed at the skimpy the amount of strips they gave me. Is muslin made of gold or something? Would never buy again.

If youre looking for a true Gardenia scent, this is it! It's a refreshing blend, unlike older Gardenia based fragrances that will make you sick. This is by far the most beautiful Gardenia fragrance due to the aquatic notes added to take away that heavy, sickeningly sweet smell that others like Annick Goutal's Gardenia Passion have. A Five Star fragrance!

I finally decided to try this cream and I can report that this product really stands out from other prestige creams. The ingredients are superb, and I like the Chantecaille uses pure rose water as a base for all treatments. The hexapeptide in this cream is pretty low on the ingredient deck, so don't expect it to be a s dramatic as Botox, but the other ingredients more than make up for it. It …Read more

A mediocre copycat product to cash in on the grape seed extract craze.Nice try Lancome, but you can't beat Caudalie for Grape Seed based skin care.

Lancome's treatment has always left me cold for some reason. This cream is no exception. Their glossy adverts can really push a product, but as I've said ad nauseum, huge companies liek Lancome simply WON'T put enough actives in their creams to make a difference. They want to appeal to the masses, and if they want to pump out millions of jars of this stuff a year, you can be sure …Read more

If you don't mind spending the money, this really is a fantastic product. Not really a toner, but it's used the same way. This product will moistuize, exfoliate, help soften the look of sun spots and prepare the skin for treatments to follow. Skin takes on a brighter appearance with contnued use. It can be a bit sticky feeling for some people, but in the winter months it's …Read more

Having gone through an entire box of these treatments, all I can say is I'm underwhelmed. Once again, lofty claims of reduced puffiness and firmer contours are just that, claims. To use this tedious product, you're supposed to give yourself a quick massage with the puff-reducing gel each morning, then follow with the rest of your usual routine. Too time consuming, and hell, the skin can …Read more

This, like most Chanel products, feels great going on, but does it DO anything??? Upon further inspection of the ingredient listing on the box, they DO have Matrixyl in this cream.....it's the VERY LAST INGREDIENT!!! The oxygenating claims they make about the No.1 Collection are a bit far-fetched. The one ingredient that could possibly make a difference is the LAST ingredient? Yet another …Read more
