I am a 27 year old woman who loves all things makeup and fashion. I love trying and reviewing new products! My friends and family are always coming to me for product suggestions! I am also a bit of a wine and beer snob. If you ever need a good suggestion, I'm your go to girl!
There is probably some DIY cheaper version of this, but at 17ish dollars, it will probably last you more than a year. It actually works. No other spot treatment has ever worked for me. Will continue to buy. Works on my adult hormonal acne monsters. I have clear skin otherwise.
I'm very happy with this product! I have sensitive/dry skin, and this was my first attempt at using such a powerful night-time product, so I was nervous. But, so far, so good! I've been using it nightly for about 3 weeks and my skin's texture is much more even and much less blotchy. It's helped with some pink and red acne scarring I had, too. I do need to put on moisturizer after I use it to make sure I don't get too dry, but that's normal for me. No breakouts, no irritation. I've even stopped wearing foundation-- just rely on concealer to cover up redness around my nose and under the eyes!
I have been using this essence for years and I can say that it has done WONDERS for my skin. I used to have a lot of acne but after applying this every morning and night, I have very little acne now. Obviously, using this alone will not just make all your acne disappear but it certainly helps and makes your skin look super clean, glowing, and fresh! The price is steep but one bottle lasts for so long - and the benefits for your skin are amazing!
I will never not have this in my skin care arsenal. I absolutely love this stuff. I use this after I wash and tone my face, or I use this after I apply my make up, like a setting spray! It smells wonderful and once it dries, you have no greasy residue! I absolutely will not go without it
This mist is my HG - I've tried a lot of different ones but feel like this is the only one that makes a difference in my dry skin. I keep spares in my desk and bag, and refill the travel sizes with the full-size I keep at home. Works perfectly both to rehydrate my dry skin (saving grace on long flights) and also to set my makeup in the morning. Matte feeling when it dries. Worth every penny!
I've been a long time fan at Shiseido products. For many years I've used the Skincare line and recently have moved into the Benefiance line. I've been very pleased so far. The whipped conisitency goes on smooth and imparts a luminous glow. The smell is clean and fresh. I've been using this day cream for about 2 months and my skin looks great. Please be advised that most of the Benefiance products tend to be on the oily side, so use sparingly or concentrate on dry skin zones.
Product Performance: When using the products as a complete regimen, (I purchased the precleanse balm and daily microfoliant separately) they work as advertised on normal/oily skin. My cheeks are baby soft and feel adequately moisturized throughout the day. I also have dry patches which were improved by this kit but would probably do better with their dry skin products. These don't have the best smell to them but they don't smell "bad." And, I now have a deep, painful pimples on my chin, neck, and temples that I didn't have before. I can't attribute them exclusively to this product though. I really want to love Dermalogica products I've tried. I haven't had the opportunity to have my skin mapped by a Dermalogica professional so I'm kind of guess at which products might be appropriate for me. I thought I had combination skin, oily in the T-zone and normal everywhere else so I purchased this kit to give it a go. I'll have my skin mapped before investing in any more products.
I've been using this soap for months, it's the best effective cleanser I've found that doesn't strip my skin or make my acne worse or more irritated. I love the smell, I love how it feels, I love how it makes my skin feel after washing. I've struggled with acne for the past 5 years and this stuff if literally the best I've found anywhere. Of course, I use a lot of other products to exfoliate and moisturize and treat my acne, but this is hands down the best cleanser ever.
I bought this product during some kind of promotional special because it was only $20. I'm almost out and want to order again, I'm a bit dismayed to see the price! Not sure if I can fork out 3 times what I paid last time, but I will say that this product is wonderful! It brightens up my under eye area very well (and I have had dark circles for years), and it doesn't cake in any way. I feel good knowing I'm protecting that fragile skin with a great sunscreen. Keep those crows feet at bay as long as possible!
For me, this cleanser has it all. A natural ingredient list (sulfate free & paraben free) and no fragrance -- but it still foams up nicely, and unlike other gentle cleansers I find that it can really remove all my makeup at the end of the day. I have sensitive/combination skin and it doesn't dry me out or make my face feel tight, nor has it caused any breakouts. I have bought tube after tube of this product, and while I've tried others in between, nothing quite tops this one.
