I got quite taken in by fancy words advertising this product like "optical diffusers" and I got it in my head that I really wanted to try this product. I also think the words "instant" and "instantly" are quite persuasive terms in marketing of beauty creams. I like the packaging, it's attractive, with an efficient pump that dispenses the product smoothly. Not …Read more

This is great stuff in my opinion. Inexpensive, gives nice coverage and has the added benefit of a sunscreen. I really appreciate products that give great results at a sensible price and this gets a big tick of approval from me.

This brand was recommended by Dr Amy Wechsler in her book The Mind-Beauty Connection, so I decided to try it. I can't see what makes it so great, and sunscreens that are half the price (e.g. Neutrogena) do as good a job. This made my face look white as a ghost, so for that reason I can't use it as my everyday face shield. Overpriced in my opinion.

Very effective product. The tan developed quickly and the exfoliator made my skin feel very smooth. Has the usual self-tanning product smell which is slightly unpleasant. This product needs to be applied very carefully, or you will find yourself with pale patches in areas you missed.

Seems to me that this product is a marketing gimmick. It's beautiful to look at in the packaging, but it didn't make any noticeable difference to my face. This product gave a very slight sparkle to the face that could only be seen up very close. Packaging is such that if you accidentally drop the container you can lose quite a bit of expensive product.

Very pretty pink-mauve lipstick, gives a very soft, understated and elegant look. Quality formula, glides on and long lasting if you are not eating/drinking.

I bought this based on the reviews of other makeupalley users. I find it hard to review the performance of Decleor products, as there seems to be a significant "halo effect" in general with Decleor products. The beautiful aromas of their products appeal to the senses but I haven't seen any visible improvement in my skin from the Rose D'Orient night balm. I've got …Read more
