Just THE BEST. I was a devoted user about 10 years ago, and then got "cheap" and switched to other brands like YSL, MakeupForever, Tarte, Dior... none of which really fully covered the awful melasma on my temples due to hormones. Over Christmas I was walking by the CdP counter and on a whim decided to give another go. It's amazing! It blends seamlessly, one swipe FULLY …Read more

I have chronically dry skin and have used every reputable hand cream on the market. Tried this years ago when my skin was less dry and was not impressed as it felt heavy. Was given a small tube of it over Christmas and started using it again - and it has changed my skin. My knuckles had begun cracking and bleeding during the winter, only Aquaphor on the broken skin would heal it. Began …Read more

This is fine and lovely - a cream which feels hydrating and smooths out beautifully, but I do not find it to be as effective as my old standby Burt's Bees Royal Jelly eyecream. I can especially tell the difference towards the end of the day as my layers of undereye concealer start to build up... the Burt's does a better job of staying hydrated and soft.

Very forgiving, easy to use foundation which gives the most beautiful glow. It's medium coverage so I just layer where I need it.

Unfortunately if worn more than one day, it breaks me out, but the results are so gorgeous I keep it around to wear on special nights like a birthday. It photographs flawlessly and I look 5 years younger.

Have been using this very lovely cream for a week now and I am thrilled. It smells deliciously edible, absorbs quickly and leaves my dehydrated skin very soft in the morning. The consistency is somewhat akin to melting yogurt, but the the sticky feeling quickly subsides. My early autumn flakies are disappearing, my skin is much smoother and visibly less red in many places, and the milk acids …Read more

I have to agree with everyone else on this: didn't like it. The idea and the product information on it sounded great to me, so I used it religiously for a month and found I was breaking out with little clogged pores everywhere. "Maybe I'm purging", I thought, so even though the problems started right away I stuck with it. Last week I got tired of bothering, as my skin …Read more

Lovely scent and feel to this lightweight moisturizer. Unfortunately it gave me little whiteheads all over my face - started day 1 and by day 3 I had to discontinue use because my face was looking so horrible. Makeup applies very nicely over it though.

I received this as a gift from a friend who knew I loved natural products. At first, I was hesitant to try this because the smell was very strong, face oils seemed designed to clog my pores, and given how small the bottle was I was certain the stuff inside had to be very potent - meaning that if it didn't agree with my skin, even the tiny bit I applied would wreak havoc. …Read more

This is a very nice cream with serum-like properties thanks to the huge amounts of silicon in it. I use it primarily before drying my hair as it seems to help keep the frizzies away and adds a bit of movement. After my hair is dry and flat-ironed, I like to mix a little of it with some Kiehls Silk Groom for a polished, healthy gleam. I did not give it five lipsticks because it doesn't …Read more

I do not care for this. I suppose I should consider myself lucky that it didn't irritate my skin or break me out, but it simply didn't do anything. Not very hydrating for an oil, had a greasy feel to it (unlike the wonderful Aesop Face Oil), and the smell was mild but unpleasant.
