Take a peek in nearly any makeup artist's kit and you'll spy a well-loved tube of this cult favorite. Since we're just as picky as the pros, you'd better believe we're fans too. It doubles as a makeup remover, post-shave soother, and baby cream. Who says beauty isn't practical?
I did not like the consistency of this product. I felt like it left a greasy film on my skin when i used it as a moisturizer. I have yet to try it as a make up remover but i am wary about breaking out from the oily residue it leaves behind. Might be better for someone with a very dry skin type-i have more of a combo skin type1
I was excited to find this in my birchbox this month. However, I am quite disappointed with it. It was very light almost watery, not good for my winter dry skin. Also, the big claim that is can be used as more than just a moisturizer... any moisturizer can be used as a make-up remover ..1
After reading the reviews, I'm guessing that I just got a bad batch or something. The creme burned my eyes, hands, and face. It felt like someone put hot coals on my forehead. I'm glad no one else had this reaction. Personally, I want to give it no stars, but I had to give it at least one.1
Parraffinum Liquidum is a fancy word for Mineral Oil! Mineral oil is awful for the skin as it is like putting plastic on your skin and it will not "breath" at all. Mineral oil (Paraffinum Liquidum) is the 2nd Ingredient.
This product sounds wonderful, but I am allergic to dairy and so I cannot use it. I tried a little patch test and it irritated my skin :( At least I got to sample it.1
When I first received the sample of this product, I wasn't quite sure what it was, was it a hand cream sample? a face moisturizer? some sort of medicine? What? Not the mention the official prescription looking paper it came with. When I finally realized it was a moisturizer, I got online to read some reviews, and lo and behold, one of the first ingredients is paraffinum liquidium (a fancy name for mineral oil). Needless to say, I will not be using this product as mineral oil is pore clogging doesn't allow your skin to breathe. I find it quite disconcerting that the ingredients were not listed on the packaging. I'm so glad I checked and found out the ingredient before putting this on my sensitive skin!1
This product made my skin made my skin break out so bad!!1
First off the sample sizes were very small. I did not like the packets. The packaging was HORRIBLE. The entire thing was written in french with no english directions, or even a hint as to what it was. I had to search for it on Birchbox.com to even find out what it was used for. After finding out it was a 24hour anti-aging cream I was sad. I am young and have no need for this. However I read more of what the product does (online of course as again the sample was in all french), and decided to use it anyways. It is supposed to have moisturizing qualities. It left my skin feeling very greasy. I used it on my face and my hands as I rubbed it in. Even after using soap the greasy feeling is still plaguing my skin. It is for this reason that my skin feels smooth. I really don't have wrinkles on my face so as far as that goes, I really have no comment. It does appear to have a semi-firming quality to it per the backs of my hands, however the feeling of the creme itself really over shadows its actual purpose. I would not recommend this product. I will say though it does not have a bad smell.1
I ordered this product because it had gotten such rave reviews. However, it is not the right product for me.
About a year ago, I switched my skin care routine to 100% natural products, and my rosacea cleared up and my skin texture evened.
However, I was curious about this product. As soon as I applied it to my face, I could feel the synthetic chemicals in it. I could also feel the high petroleum content of the cream. Bottom line, this cream is so useful as a general balm and makeup remover because it is mostly petroleum. The high perfume content also made my rosacea come back. I have moved this product to my purse and I only use it as a (really nice) hand cream now.
So if you're an all natural girl like me, skip this one. But if you are okay with chemicals on your face, go ahead & use it. It is very moisturizing.
the sample was really small to get enough use out of to determine whether or not it does anything for fine lines or complexion. It absorbed really well and quickly. Slightly greasy in my opinion.2
