I love this so much. It's the only body wash I use now. And this is despite the crappy pump -- I have to push it around eight times to get enough product out. Not because I use so much product, just because the pump doesn't spring back to its original position after being pressed down. I thought this was a defect with the first bottle I bought, but I am now on my third and have just …Read more

I wanted to like this, but it just doesn't do much. Even if I use 6+ drops, the impact is minimal. To clarify, I don't use this on my face -- I use it on my legs, mixed with moisturizer -- so maybe my review isn't valid for the typical user.

On a positive note, virtually no scent and it absorbs very quickly -- no stains on my sheets like with St Tropez.

This is the best pressed powder I have ever used. Worth every penny, and I don't think it is actually that much more expensive than some of the more mainstream department store brands.

I have never worn foundation, but like to finish with a few brushstrokes of something after moisturizing. I have tried so many brands over the years, but I will never look back! This sets my skin …

My husband loves this (I like to use it, too, sometimes). I buy it as a stocking stuffer or as a little pick-me-up gift (but wait for it to go on sale at SDM, which happens frequently).

Very fresh scent and good value considering that you only need a small amount to produce a good lather. I would recommend it.

I received a GWP of this last Christmas at SDM. At first I thought it was nothing special, but I find myself reaching for it again and again and have finally purchased a whole bottle.

It doesn't lather much, but makes your skin feel nice and clean without drying it out. I love the scent.

I have used a lot of different cleansers over the years... I am not suggesting …

DON'T BUY THIS. I so wanted to like it. Yes, I read the negative reviews on here that said that the cream forms into little pills/clumps on your skin. But I still wanted it -- I thought, that won't happen to me, they must be exaggerating. Anyway, you guessed it -- little pills/clumps all over my body, especially in warm weather. Disgusting -- seriously.

There are sub-par …

I would never be without this. I always repurchase and I always have little travel-size samples to take with me on trips. I love the smell and the texture -- I don't use it every day, but when I do, it never dries out my skin.

Best eyeliner! I have been using Lancome for years, and samples from Estee Lauder and Clarins. The Lancome one was always smudging, so I decided to buy this with my Optimum points. It is wonderful -- very easy to put on and doesn't budge. Beautiful colour. Overall, very high-quality pencil, I will definitely repurchase.
