This stuff is amazing for hydration. I won't purchase again because it turns out I have an allergy / sensitivity to snail, which took a few months to figure out. If not for that it would be HG status. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to add an additional layer of moisture to their routine.

I love this stuff. I bought it because it looked intriguing and was on sale. Normally I don't love Olay's night creams - I find they pill terribly - but this is a gel cream and sinks in with no pilling at all.
I've noticed a difference already in hydration in the morning. I slather several layers of the stuff on though.
I will continue to use throughout the winter when …

Full disclosure - my all time fave mascara is L'Oréal voluminous, so I'm probably more likely to like this newest iteration.
That said, I'll be going back to the original voluminous.
This formula is good - it does thicken and lengthen and for me it takes only one coat to really get some great results. But the brush is a bit big for my liking, resulting in a more unwieldy …

I've used a couple of large Sephora gift samples of this.

Bottom line: not worth the price and too drying for my (admittedly dry) skin.

It's an elegant formula and removes all makeup well; however, I find it leaves skin too tight and dry following use. I will continue to use it as a travel cleanser if need be, because overall it's not that bad, and far …

So far so good....

I bought this on a whim at Shoppers Drug Mart and I'm loving it. I have very dry skin, especially in the winter, and this does an excellent job at moisturizing without being too heavy. I don't mean it's light by any stretch, but it actually sinks in, which a lot of moisturizers don't seem to do for me.

It hasn't broken me out, but …

Impressive product for the price and overall I would recommend; however, it was not enough moisture for me. It didn't irritate my sensitive skin and I really liked the consistency, but just not enough moisture. This says more about my skin than the product - I struggle with spf products for this reason.

I tried it, gave it to my mother, and went back to my tried and true Olay …

This is the best hair remover cream I've tried in ages.

I have dark hair and some hyperpigmentation on my upper lip which is obviously exacerbated by having any dark hair there, so removing it is important to me. I can't wax my upper lip (no matter what and no matter how I prep/ treat after, I get a multitude of small pimples afterwards) and shaving is not ideal. Generally I …

I finally caved and purchased this and ADORE it.

A makeup artist at Sephora had applied this as it is one of the best colour matches she could find (201 Linen). It's expensive but I finally bit the bullet and do not regret it one bit.

Here's what I love:

- matches my skin perfectly! (my skin is super hard to match - pale and thin with yellow undertones …

A short and sweet review for this (which I purchased as a deluxe sample).

Although there are lots of good oils in this product, it wasn't for me for two reasons:
1. one or more of the oils caused sensitivity (which is not really the product's fault, but my skin's fault).
2. as other reviewers have noted, it's overpriced for the types of oils …

The first non-mineral sunscreen I've used that hasn't irritated my skin! Yippee. I'm also very pleased with the formula and how my skin has been looking. If you have dry skin and have been searching for an SPF moisturizer, do give this a try!

This is a very emollient and moisturizing product, although non-greasy (at least on my desert-dry skin). It does take a few …
