I don't use it for lines or circles, but I had been looking for something to cure my eyelids of their consistent reddish sandpaper texture, and had tried everything from la mer to kinerase to ole h. Nothing really helped the texture overnight--until I got a sample of this. It worked! This will be a staple product for me now.

Love this stuff. I do not use it on its own over my whole face, but I need to cover a lot of hyper-pigmentation and tone issues. This is my final layer of coverage after BB cream everywhere, foundation on hyper pigmentation along jawline, concealer under eyes and on blemishes. So on my nose, forehead, chin I use this over BB cream. This gives extra oomph to my covering cosmetics but is not heavy …Read more

I love this. Good coverage and high SPF. Great color (I use the fairest shade). Not as thick or covering as some of the thickest BB creams--I am thinking of Dr. Jart and Boscia, but color match is a little better. I have deluxe samples of these thicker ones and use them when I am in the mood, and currently I am using Smashbox because I bought it in a JCP sephora where Bobbi Brown was not …Read more

Updated review: First, I am updating this review because I have discovered that this is actually a review for the 50+ tinted melt-in cream. After double- and triple-checking the first time to make sure I had the right product, it seems I still got it wrong. I first questioned it because someone said it was readily available in the US, but I've never seen it. I bought this while in London …Read more

Sunscreen - Neutrogena - Age Shield Face- SPF 110 waterproof

Jan/19/2012

I was so excited by the "110" that I bought this product over the summer, despite having enough of my favorites to last the rest of the season. Recently, I started to feel guilty for having purchased this six months ago and never used it (because during the summer, I didn't want to risk the unknown, so I stuck to either my beloved Anthelios or Sheseido). But now it was January …Read more

Cleansers - La Roche-Posay - Effaclar Purifying Gel Cleanser

Dec/22/2011

This has become my go-to non s/a cleanser. I usually use Murad clarifying, but sometimes I want something without s/a. This stuff does what it says: my face feels really clean when I use it, it keeps my acne at bay, and yet it is very gentle. I suppose it isn't my all-the-time cleanser because I feel like the s/a in the Murad is more of a treatment, but over the summer I used this …Read more

Fantastic stuff. To tell the truth, I have wanted to try this for literally years, after reading reviews and whatnot. I bought the liquid almost three years ago with a spray pump and lost it (no idea) within a few days. Never bothered to go back and order another one. The reason I have not, I think, is because I felt like ultimately "yeah, yeah, yeah, another bha body product." I …Read more

Unbelievable stuff for me. This stuff really, truly helped to heal one of the worst breakouts I have ever had. Yet it is gentle enough that I don't mind my toddler putting a little bit on her own face (as she will insist upon doing). Right at this moment I feel like I will never live without this product again. I have bought from the kiosks at the mall before--the scrub, the body butter …Read more

Apr/29/2011

I am always SO hesitant to say that a product broke me out unless I 100% know that it was THAT product and not some hormonal thing or stress, etc... It is easier, I think, to be able to tell when a makeup breaks you out due to some sensitivity, etc., than to tell when a cleanser is doing it. I am usually a dermalogica medibac or murad user, but I'm not a snob about supermarket brands at …Read more

Jun/22/2010

I'm surprised to see all the negative reviews for this product. I started using this as a staple in 2008, about exactly two years ago, and it only occurred to me now to check to see if I had reviewed it. For me, it is a moisturizer with a decent SPF (i.e. not 15, like most seem to have) that does not aggravate my oily/acne skin. This has never broken me out, and it is nice and light in …Read more
