Ever since I sampled this at my job ( i work at sephora) I definitely went ahead and splurged. This cleanser has helped my skin in numerous ways, because I am more sensitive and use it with my clarisonic I only use this one nightly. It exfoliates mildly and still removes all the gunk in your pores. I feel very refreshed with baby booty soft skin after each use. Any time I don't use this cleanser I always have a bad makeup day the day after.
As a sephora employee, I will have to say this is one of my holy grail foundations. I have combination skin with a very oily t-zone and chin region. This product doesn't last very long on the skin without primers however I hardly ever use a foundation without applying a primer anyways. The finish and smoothness this delivers to my skin and numerous others has me purchasing this now 3x! I find that it does not settle or crease. Though again, I do powder my t-zone. This has a full coverage dewy finish that covers any redness or scar that I have on my skin. However, because of its thicker creamy texture you will definitely want to wash your face EXTRA well after removal or it will clog your pores.
Again, I work at sephora and have used this on many different types of skin. With this product in particular it is very full coverage, thick, and has a matte finish. I love how well it lasts on the skin with or without primer. However, this is not suited for aging skin in fact will age you. If you have acne prone skin, you will have to wash extremely well otherwise this will clog your pores. Due to its full coverage and matte finish, you will lose emphasis of many of your features like cheekbones or eyes. So contouring and mascara or eyeliner is necessary to bring forward your natural beauty. Also, the color range is very yellow for the more fair skin colors, which makes matching very hard especially because that thick consistency has a habit of oxidizing.
Working at Sephora I have used this product on numerous different types of clients ranging in many different types of skin.. I find this to my top selection for majority of my clients looking for a lighter weight consistency but still getting that medium very very buildable full coverage. I love this foundation year round, photographs well, blurs imperfections, and has a natural finish. I lather this stuff on frequently and it lasts a pretty good time. Pairs wonderfully, with makeup forevers primers :)
