Upon first application, I was leaving away from the Mereadesso. It was a great concept, but I was skeptical that it would do all it said. I was really glad they gave a large sample, because I found myself going back to it the next day.. and the next... I was surprised that it moisturized as well as it does, and I was very pleased with the primer aspect of the product. I have really dry skin so I only used this during the day and something a little more hydrating overnight. But I like this - quite a bit. In fact, I got online to buy this today, until I saw the price. For about half this cost, I guess I'll have to stick with my current regime for about half the cost. Sad but hard to justify the price, for me personally. But - if you have the $, give it a whirl!
