I was very 'meh' on this product until I developed very very sensitive skin. Now, it's the only exfoliating product I can use--it doesn't cause me to break out or leave my skin red. You might think that you need to press extra hard because the beads are so gentle, but that is NOT the case. That WILL make you red and cause you other problems if you have sensitive skin. The only …Read more

This is a great product. I first used it about 6 months ago as an overnight hand treatment, but had lackluster results. I decided to pick it up again in desperation, after seeing what the super dry climate was doing to my skin. I used it on my lips and the drier portions of my face, and it worked beautifully. Even though it is a Eucerin product, I was afraid that my incredibly sensitive skin …Read more

Nice product. After having bad experiences with chemical sunscreens, I decided to try an alternative. I've been using it for a couple weeks and have not experienced any irritation or breakouts. It blends well--no streaky white mess. I do think it's pricey, though.

This is a nice toner that won't dry out your skin. (And is unlikely to irritate it) I use it after cleansing or as a fast little touch-up midday when I'm in a hurry. I have mixed feelings on the packaging. On one hand, the spray bottle makes it a bit more hygienic and less wasteful, but it can get clogged.

Surprisingly good product. I received a sample of this when I ordered some other Skinceuticals products, but it went untouched for a couple months. I finally decided to use it after noticing an odd welt/rash on my face following the use of a new product. Within 5 minutes, the irritated spot had disappeared. I also use this occasionally after exfoliating, since my sensitive skin sometimes turns …Read more

I don't wear much makeup and avoid foundation altogether, so I mostly use this to completely remove sunscreen. (If I don't, I break out terribly.) It works well for this purpose, and is only slightly drying. I don't mind the smell--it's not great IMO, but not horrible either. Just a basic citrusy smell. I usually wash my face with Cetaphil right after and this does help with …Read more

This is the best lotion. Friends of mine recommended Eucerin for my extremely dry skin (esp in the winter) and it didn't work nearly as well as this. I also like the fact that it isn't greasy. I've tried so many different brands (the different scents are always tempting) but haven't found anything as good.

EDIT: I've found that this works pretty well for the …

I didn't have particularly high expectations for this, but I ended up loving it. I use it at night, after applying a few drops of Skinceuticals B5 serum. It's especially great for winter when my skin (esp cheeks) feel parched. Even after 8 or more hours of sleep, my skin stays moisturized. I highly recommend this!! Previously, I had been using a ridiculously overpriced boutique brand …Read more

I liked this product a lot. It has a great peppermint scent. (Perhaps a bit strong for someone who isn't a fan of peppermint, but I am!) and does a nice job of moisturizing. I put a pretty generous amount of this on before I go to bed, slip on socks, and wake up with super soft feet. It also gives tired feet a nice cool tingle. I could be wrong, but I believe they now offer this in a smaller …Read more

I love this stuff. It's super cheap, a little goes a long way, and it's incredibly moisturizing. You only need a quarter-sized dollop for your entire body. I usually use it with a scrubby glove. I don't think the smell is all that great, but it's not obnoxious either. Kind of perfumey. I've seen some reviews that complain of the residue left after they rinse, and …Read more
