I'm pretty much just going to second everything that NoBSBeauty said about this stuff! It's amazing under makeup - I've starting using it as a moisturizer/primer now that the weather's warmed up, and it works great for that. I know it won't be moisturizing enough when the weather turns cold again, but for now it's great! No white cast, it is *very* lightly …Read more

I love the smell of this, and I used it eons ago when my skin was just generally oilier than it is now. I bought some last year and have been using it, but I find it a bit drying and it makes me itch a little bit, so I'm going to stop using it. I wish it was made in a moisturizing version - I'd be all over that, but this is just a bit much for my skin now. I don't consider that the …Read more

Got a sample of this and while it's ok, it has TWO (count them - TWO) ingredients in it. Cyclopentasiloxane and Dimethicone Crosspolymer, both are types of silicones. So if you don't like a silicone feel to your primer, avoid this at all costs. I rather like them, and they don't bother my skin, but $42 for this is outrageously expensive. If I could find it say for half that, I …Read more

Rather on the fence about this. It has a strong scent, but I find it fades pretty quickly, but the thing that really puzzles me is the white cast it leaves. I'm not dark skinned (nc25-30) and I can still see a white cast if I use the recommended 1/4 tsp. amount. It's moisturizing enough for me in the colder weather, but it's too much in the summer for me. All in all, I don't …Read more

This is for the honest to goodness eye makeup remover, not the stuff in the jar. The ingredients are simple, it's a nice thin, gel/cream consistency so it's pumps out just the right amount and it removes waterproof mascara in a trice! It's a bit greasy, but given the ingredients, that shouldn't be surprising. The only real drawback to this is that it's crazy pricey for …Read more

I have used this stuff for eons. When I was a teenager and my skin was a rampant oily mess, I used it all over as a mask, and it helped clear things up a bit. Now - even tho I'm rapidly progressing to geezerdom, I still get the occasional zit or some weird thing. I use this as an overnight treatment on those, and it's as close to a miracle worker as anything I've ever used. It will …Read more

I like this a lot, especially in summer. My skin is normal/dry and this moisturizes it nicely. I get no burning like some other reviewers do - it's all what your skin likes and doesn't like. Mine likes this a lot. It's quite bland, and really rather "ordinary" so it's kind of pricey for what it is, but I like it enough to cough up the money for it. It sinks into my …Read more

In the minority here - I just don't get the love for this stuff. It's exceedingly average to me. Doesn't moisturize all that well, and doesn't last on me. I much prefer straight out lanolin. It works like a balm is supposed to work, imo. This is just... average, but overpriced average. I'll use it during these warmer months when I can get away with it, but come October or …Read more

Can't add much to the other rave reviews here, but would like to add that my knees get *so* dry and rough from gardening and cold weather, and this makes them nice and smooth again. You have to be a bit careful, or you can literally scrub yourself raw with it (says the pained voice of experience....) but with a little caution, these things are simply marvelous!! They'll destroy any dry …Read more

Hm. I don't find the sillage nearly as strong as many others here do. I find it wears close to me, which for me is good because most fragrances with lots of sillage give me a headache to hell wouldn't have it. Anyway, this is my favorite of the Clean fragrances. It really does smell like nice clean laundry - someone should make dryer sheets that smell like this!!! It's warm, soft …Read more
