Too Concentrated! Caused MAJOR Reaction
Sampled

My skin is NOT overly sensitive, and I've been using a bioglycolic cleanser (i.e. Jan Marini) for years. I used just a little of the sample a few times over the course of a week and each time my skin burned! I expect some tingle after cleansing (following the instructions to the letter) but then a week into using the product I had a major breakout and my skin is greasy. Will NOT purchase. ouch.

This product is not anything I want to use myself. I'm sure others love the item, but this item was a huge disappointment for me.

Not Impressed
Sampled

I guess after reading the reviews for this I was excited to receive it but after using I'm not impressed. The smell was not what I expected after so many other users raved about it. The texture was okay but I didn't find it to be miracle working like others had claimed. I was happy to try the sample but will not be purchasing.

Average Moisturizer, But a Bit Greasy
Sampled

This moisturizer is an average product, in terms of its effectiveness. I wasn't all that impressed with the how the product felt on my skin, especially since I felt a discernible stinging sensation after I applied the product to my skin. Perhaps I am just sensitive to one of the ingredients in the product? However, the product also seemed a little greasy, and that coupled with the way my skin felt after application left me rather unimpressed with the sample.

Made me break out, smells really good though.
Why does this have to be more than 50 characters?

Not for me
Sampled

This Smoothing Marine Cream just isn't for me. The smell is feminine and soapy and the texture feels greasy and oily. Not the moisturizer for me.

Sensitive skin, beware.
Sampled

I was disappointed to find that hours after my first application, my face became all pink, swollen, and inflamed. I suggest anyone with sensitive skin get ahold of a sample and test on an inconspicuous area of skin before using.

Mysterious ingredients
Sampled

The texture is more like a lotion than a cream. It has the smell of coconut and some other tropical fruits, so it makes me wonder what are the ingredients. When I look at the ingredient list, there are more things I can't pronounce than the ingredients of frozen mysterious meat product.

greasy
Sampled

I don't know how well I can actually review this product. Since it's an anti-aging cream, I feel like i'd have to use it for longer than the sample provides. What I do know is that it's greasy.

Too Fragrant
Sampled

Despite the hefty price tag, this product was a little effective. I did not care for the fragrance, as it smelled too "womanly" for my taste. I will not be investing.
