Love this product! Received a tester of it and had low expectations and only started using it when I ran out of my go to cleanser... but alas, I have fallen in love! As per the other reviews, it is gentle but still highly effective. Great for my combination skin. I am currently pregnant and have more hormonal acne than normal and am finding this is great for controlling same. Price for quantity …Read more

Love this product! Tried this and only ended up switching back to Avene because I am not a big fan of the scent. That being said, it isn't offensive, I would just prefer less (personal preference, not a representation of the quality of the product by any means). I found that this was nice even during the hot summer months. Soaks in quickly, never "stopped working" and never sat …Read more

Oct/28/2016

I tried using this product in conjunction with the paired lotion as the price was right and have heard positive things from a few friends (I switched from using Avene, the serum and optimale riche moisturizer). Now I do not think this product is bad by any means, but I did find that after a few months of using it, my skin actually stopped absorbing it and it would sit on the surface, which led …Read more

Oct/28/2016

I received a generous sample of this and was stoked! I have some scaring from acne on my face so hoped this would work wonders for that. I have been using it for a week now and my skin is irritable, tight and quite dry. I noticed signs of these three things after a few days or using it but wanted to give it a good, fighting chance. I will be switching back to my original regime! I think this …Read more

I really wanted to hate this product. In fact, the first time I bought it, I noticed a few pimples form in and around the same time, so I went to return it. The sales lady insisted that it could not be from this product and encouraged me to give it another week or so. As my return date was far in the future, I obliged.

A week passed and my skin cleared up (my blemishes at this time …

My go to! I have strayed from this product twice, with hopes that I could find something better but I always come back to this! I have not found another product that leaves my face feeling as moist, plump and fresh. No oily residue and when used in conjunction with the serum, you only need to use a very little bit so it goes a long way. I find it a little heavy in the summers, but for the …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - La Roche-Posay - Hydraphase eyes

Oct/28/2016

I find that most eye treatments irritate my eyes and I have to stop using them. Positives are that this did not irritate my eyes and I felt that my eyes never felt tight while using it. Negative, I agree that I am not sure it would do a lot if you already have wrinkles, perhaps more of a preventative? I would re-buy it solely for the reason that it did not irritate my eyes and it leaves them …Read more

Jul/03/2014

This experience has been absolutely painful. I ordered WEN's "trial" package earlier this year via their website. I promptly received my first shipment. I was not thoroughly impressed with the product; I have fine hair and felt it did not do anything for me, infact it made my hair limper. A few months passed and ANOTHER package came in the mail... At this point I started …Read more

Treatments (Face) - CLARINS - Multi-Active Skin Renewal Serum

Mar/18/2014

To preface, I have combination skin, live in a very cold climate and am prone to break outs...

I have been using Avene (night cream) and Clinique (super defence during the day) and have had no recent problems. However, since adding the Clarins Multi-Active Skin Renewal Serum my skin has become extremely sensitive and I have broken out, primarily on my forehead. This happened within …

Treatments - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Biotin (All brands)

Jan/17/2014

I have been taking biotin for a few years now and believe it has contributed positively to my skin. I notice a difference in my hair as well, both that it grows faster and seems shinier. I did not break out from biotin, but I drink a ton of water (6+ litres) daily. The results from taking biotin are not so miraculous that I would risk taking it if I knew I could break out from it... Use with …Read more
