I'm so happy I invested in this!! At first I wasnt sure if it was any better than my previous MaxFactor but fast forward 3 weeks and I'd never go back. I apply this with a dense buffing brush and it gives a really nice even and flawless finish, with reasonable coverage for a powder. Combined with a good foundation it is truly beautiful.

OMG. Stop everything! I bought this off the back of the reviews below and I would personally hug you all if I could. This product is AMAZING! I already have a number of Levyn Aucoin products but somehow the steep price tag for a tiny pot seemed too much. Untill one day I went a little crazy and next thing I know I've binged in Bobbi Brown, MAC and SpaceNK. Oops.

A little goes such …

I bought this as a replacement for my Clinique scrub which has been a HG for me for years...but I wanted to try something new. So far so good with this product- the exfoliating particles arent as dense as the Clinique so you need to scrub a little harder/use a little more but it works really well and it is a rougher texture to the Clinique 7 day scrub so for me, not daily use. I may have to …Read more

this is without a doubt a new HG for me! ive not had the best time with my skin the past few years so have been experimenting with different products from Missha, Cosrx and Laneige to name but a few. I bought this on a whim a few months ago and i am so glad I did! 3 drops are more than enough to cover my whole face and you do feel a warming sensation- but the next day you wake up with noticeably …Read more

I really love this product. 2 years ago I switched to k-beauty products including multi product routines and now no longer wear foundation so I use this in the morning. I only use some powder make up so pilling isnt an issue for me. I absolutely reccomend this for those who can't handle the higher 23% vit c.

I so so badly wanted to love this product but I really don't. The gritty texture is annoying, but what kills this for me is that it is impossible to use in a routine: it pills SO badly that I can only use it at night on its own because it pills in combination with absolutely everything. I did read they will be bringing out a high % vit C in a different formulation so I hope those work out …Read more

LOVE! I've got quite a collection of Cosrx products and I was a bit sceptical about buying this but I'm so glad I did. I use this alongside 2 other moisturisers, 1 of which is the Biore UV sunscreen and it works really well for my combination skin.

Whilst this isnt a HG for me, I find it a great combo with mtoisturisers. Ive really upped my snail products lately (mizon, benton snail bee) and use them both together and interchangeably. leave enough time for everything to absorb pre make up and you should be fine.

This is a horrible product! It is sold as 'waterproof' but within hours this is smudged all over my lids. It is not very highly pigmented so you have to apply at least 3 times for a really black finish. Really dissapointed.
