THE HG of foundations...It's called Boots No. 7 HydraLuminous Moisturizing Foundation...not in USA yet..bought this in UK...keep checking where you buy Boots No.7 or
order if from Boots on-line. Saw a UK YouTube video on this, so when I had the chance I bought two 1 oz
tubes for a ridiculously low price at one of their flagship stores. Sales assoc. (who had been there 15 …

My 70+ age skin has loved this product for many years but I used it sparingly until now. This review is
of the bottle I just purchased (since I thought the formula might have changed; I used my over 1 yr. old
bottle up 1st). Good news...it's the same lovely product.

I used it primarily in the morning..just a bit on a cotton pad seems to remove any leftover grime …

I have been using this at nite on my 72-yr-old skin since it 1st came out & feel it definitely keeps my skin
healthy and feel I would probably have really deep wrinkles if I left it out of my routine.


I have been a La Mer fan for 21 years, using the creme. I don' t find the eye products to be that great;
but this oil I use on freshly clean skin at nite …

I had a Lancome rep put this on my clean face that I'd added primer (not Lancome) to before I went in.
That was 4 hrs ago and it has almost disappeared from the red areas on which I want coverage.
It almost instantly sank into my wrinkles after she applied it (& moved it around with a brush).
I'm 72 & I am blessed with few wrinkles but what I have don't need …

I don't see where to add my age...probably doesn't apply to this product anyway.
Don't see the review I left a few years ago where I raved about the GWP size I tried.

BUT, now they must have re-formulated it because my new GWP size of this, which I
have used for 2 weeks now just to be sure before I reviewed...it smudges more than
possibly any mascara …

I am on my 3rd bottle of this...using a tiny bit just under my eyes in the morning & a
little more at nite both under my eyes (it reduces puffiness) and on my area above my
eyelid (it actually does tighten it!).

It's pricy, so I am careful about the amount I use...it has a pump, so I had to work out
how much to pump out (pressure-wise)..also in this red bottle …

I love this & have been using it since it came out (years ago)...gentle and effective.

Was trying to review Lancôme's new Face Makeup Remover but can't find it, so will
review it here:

I don't have sensitive skin but this burned my face a bit and made it red...got it as
part of a GWP, so beware & don't buy it.

I use Chanel …

Bought this a couple day ago in the "medium" shade...tried a bit on in the store & it looked sort of ok,
so I bought it. I was impressed that it had peptides in it. Trying it out at home on completely clean
face, it was way too yellow; plus, it sank into a divet on my skin that seldom traps anything I put on.
My bad for over-working a deep pimple; but, seriously, I …
