A fantastic product!!! I can only rave about it. It has made my skin balanced, less oily, smooth and clear. What else can you possible ask for? Paula's products are truly most effective when used properly. I made the mistake of selecting what I thought I needed rather than seeking the advice of her very well trained and knowledgeable staff. They guided me to the right products that have made …Read more

Another Lutens masterpiece! I never thought I would see a Serge Lutens fragrance that was the least bit fresh, from top to bottom, but he's done it and masterfully! It' not a groundbreaking version of a soap and water clean fragrance....but it may be the best one. It's soft and light with decent staying power. Definately unisex, and IMHO, sure to become a classic. I've already …Read more

Once mastered, this product is pretty good. Yes, it is quite thin and appears sheer on application, but once you tap to blend, it very subtly covers dark or red areas. It has taken me a few applications to get it down, but now I really like it. I've ordered 2 more from YSL online.

Generally an ok product, except that the color choices did not match my skin at all. Way to orange. Did Clinique think that men have less variations in skin color than women?

This product is a tricky one. At first I didn't think I liked it. I realized after a second round that I was using it incorrectly. It is meant to be applied over the DDMG, not alone. You must also use it sparingly. Once I got that down, it's been great! Nothing will ever keep shine totally at bay, but this does nicely for quite a few hours. It is best used on the t-zone or your most …Read more

This is an elegant product that stands apart from the regular Clinique suncare line. It is smooth, just lightweight enough, and dries to a matte finish. At first it seems like it might have a bit of that zinc-oxidey feel, but it absorbs immediately. I have not experienced any balling up of the product at all. The only downside is it is quite expensive, but totally worth every penny....if you can …Read more

Sunscreen - Paula's Choice - Essential Non-Greasy Sunscreen spf 15 [DISCONTINUED]

Compared to many of the new 'matte' sunscreens on the market as of late, this one falls short. Although my face was not greasy per se, it was definately very shiny. Therefore it looked greasy. It did protect me from burning though, but for half the price I could buy a drugstore brand that would do the trick. I think Paula should consider reformulating this one.

Overall this oil-free moisturizer does exactly what it claims. But remember, it's for guys with oily skin. It is best during slightly warmer months, but if you have very oily skin year 'round, this will definately do the trick. You only need a small amount and a tube lasts quite a while. A great product!
