Very good anti aging serum
: I always had this perception that expensive brands such as Estee Lauder, Lancom are all hype, and it is not worth spending tons of money on them, but now I stand corrected after using the Estee Lauder Synchronized Nightly Repair Serum. I am 35+ and have been looking for a serum/night cream for ages that I thought will make a difference. I am from Bangladesh so have slightly darker skin tone, I don’t smoke or drink, very regular about my skin care routine, avoid sun or use sunscreen regularly as a result my skin is pretty much on the good side, I don’t have any wrinkle, very few dark spots or blotchiness. I tried Olay, ROC, Aveeno but was not really convinced with any of them. About eight months ago after doing tons of research and reading outrageous reviews I decided to try this product. At first it seemed like a very expensive product. $55 for a 1oz. bottle. The person whom I asked to buy it for me by mistake bought the biggest size, which costs around $135. At first I used it every other day (since I was using Prevage as well). It did make a difference to my skin, it is definitely more glowing and healthy. My skin simply looks younger than it used to and its not really expensive because I am on my eighth month and still have a little bit of the product left that will probably cover a week or so and believe me I did not use it frugally. I have mild oily skin, the serum feels a little sticky on my skin, its not super moisturizing , in fact I used my Olay Definity Foaming moisturizer over it. Over all I love this product and will continue with it and will recommend it to others.

Expensive and not effective
I used one bottle of Prevage MD and I will noit recommend it to anyone. This why, 1) It made by skin very sensitive after first use and it took a really long time for my skin to adopt to it. After using it first day I tried it every other day but that didn’t work then I used it every three days. 2) I did not see any noticeable change to my skin after using it. 3) Though my bottle lasted for about three months (because of my occasional use) I think it is a very expensive product. Bottom line, if you have lot of money or a cosmetic junky like me you can check this out, other wise I would suggest save your money and buy CE Ferulic or NIA. I am 36, have moderately oily skin ( oily T-zone), do not smoke or drink, avoid sun, use sunscreen/ anti-oxidant/ retinol serum every day. I do have some uneven skin tone issue but that is very mild. I don’t have much of a wrinkle and trying to keep it that way.

Not a bad option bad packaging
I used this product for four or five months and finished two tubes. I am 36, have moderately oily skin ( oily T-zone), do not smoke or drink, avoid sun, use sunscreen/ anti-oxidant/ retinol serum every day. I do have some uneven skin tone issue but that is very mild. This is not one of my regular anti-oxidant serum. I have been using Skinceuticals C E Ferulic for last 4 years and I wanted to add an extra anti oxidant in my routine. Since I use CE Ferulic any other anti oxidant will fall short compared to that. Yet the product is not that bad. I like the gel like formulation, it does not feel oily or sticky but I have two problems with this product. One is packaging and the other is clogging. I think it slightly clogged my pores and I developed papules after using it. Pros: Its cheap, includes some good ingredients, might be better for people with dry skin. Not a bad moisturizer Cons: Packaging is quite faulty every time you use it air gets in the tube which degrades the quality of the product. After I used up half the tube the product lost its clear color and became a slightly yellowish. The development was subtle. Bottom line if you want a cheaper anti oxidant then go for it but if I had very oily skin I would try the sample size first.

Will not recommend to anyone
I was very interested about this mask since it has avocado which can be very moisturizing but it has no moisturizing property at all rather really drying. I used it once, the smell was too strong, it dried out too fast and when I washed it off my skin very dry and looked very dull. I guess it might work for people with extremely dry skin but I will not even recommend it to someone with very oily skin. Body shop’s tea tree oil mask is far better one. I am 36, have moderately oily skin ( oily T-zone), do not smoke or drink, avoid sun, use sunscreen/ anti-oxidant/ retinol serum every day. I do have some uneven skin tone issue but that is very mild. I really did not like the mask and will not recommend this product to anyone.

Cheap good for mildly oily to dry skin
I have been using this mask for last two months. I am 36, have moderately oily skin ( oily T-zone), do not smoke or drink, avoid sun, use sunscreen/ anti-oxidant/ retinol serum everyday. I do have some uneven skin tone issue but that is very mild. This mask smells absolutely yummy and not too strong. I never thought I would say this about any skin care product knowing that fragrance has no positive effect on skin, but I think the smell has a soothing affect on my nerve. I feel very relaxed when I put it on. I first considered this mask since it has chocolate and strawberry. Cocoa can be a good source of anti-oxidant but it does not seem like that it has a good amount of cocoa in it to work as an anti oxidant. The mask feels creamy, goes on pretty easy, comes off easy as well. It does not make my skin feel over dry but slightly glowing. The price is extremely reasonable. I think regular use of this mask has made a subtle difference to my skin. Atleast you can see some difference immediately after application. If you are like me who skips on masks regularly then you should go for it because the intoxicating smell almost allures me to put it on. I will recommend it to people who has mildly oily- dry skin.

Excellent blush brush
II have been using this brush for more than three years. I must say that I not much of a makeup person. I used this brush both with powder and blush. The bristles are really soft and it is really good when you use it for putting on blush. You can use it to powder your face along the hair line or corner of your nose if you use a loose face powder ( as I do) or a compact. I love MAC brushes, I have tried few of the cheaper ones but always came back to MAC. I have slightly sensitive skin for regularly using Retinol Serums, but this brush is so soft it feels like cloud on my face. I will recommend this brush to everyone.

The best ever
If I could give this product more than ten star I would. I am 35 years old and have almost problem free skin. My skin is mildly oily. Those who has read the Leslie Boumann Skin Type Solution book for their information I belong to the ORPW group. I never had acne, I have been using anti-wrinkle creams since I am 27 and topical antioxidant for last 5+years, I also avoid sun or use sunscreens whenever I am exposed to sun. I don’t have any wrinkle. Just a few faint ones on my forehead, and finally I went through two pregnancies in last 5 years. Now you know everything about my skin. This is not the first retinol product that I used. Infact couple of years ago I tried Roc Retinol Correxion Serum and used three bottles but believe me never saw any result. I decided to give this cream a sought few months ago after having my second baby. And I cant believe the result my skin is brighter, smoother than ever before, after using it for a week I could totally see the noticeable difference. My pores are practically undetectable and there were few stubborn dark spots (that I couldn’t get rid of in last five years have lightened. It did not irritate my skin, did tingled after first few application but later it was ok. Bottom line, I will recommend it to anyone who does not have super sensitive skin. Its really cheap. Especially if you buy online. I just ordered three more tubes. One tube lasts more than a month (depending how often you are using it). This is the best product ever.

Let me say first that I am not a big fan of the Aveeno brand. I have used bunch of their products in the past and none of them worked properly for me, infact they were all problematic for my skin, gave me clogged pores or blackheads, and did absolutely nothing positive for my skin. After trying few of their products I kind of was determined not to waste my money with this specific brand, cause it’s not for me but then I decided to give this cleanser a sought and it worked. I am 35+, have and had almost problem free skin my entire life. That might sound a little smug but it’s true, I never had any acne problem, I still dont have any wrinkle, I can use or start using any product without worrying about break outs. The only issues I have is that minimum sun exposure gives me dark spots and if I use too much exfoliating products ( AHA / BHA) I get broken capillaries’and redness around my nose. Recently I started a retinol cream so my skin is more sensitive than ever. I was already using Dove Baby Wash for face (which is really mild) but decided to try this cleanser as well, and its truly an amazing cleanser. It does not dry out my skin at all, it does not make it more sensitive and my skin do feel fresh and clean. I am using it everyday, sometimes twice, sometimes once and I will recommend it to anyone since it seems very mild. I do think it’s slightly pricier than other Aveeno cleansers because of the less condensed formula. I don’t think my bottle will last more than a month . The bottle has a pump that dispenses foam directly and that is even more helpful for using it with my clarisonic brush. This is definitely a keeper for me.

Good product but ...
I have been using this product for over a year. i am 32, have mildly oily skin. No acne problem, no wrinkle, some brown spots. If you expect that your wrinkles are gonna disappear after using this product then you will be dishearten, but it will definitely help you with future wrinkles. I can for sure say that I have not developed a single line on my face in last one year, and my skin looks pretty glowing. Reasons I gave it a 9 star is because its price and it makes your skin slightly oily. Feels a little sticky even after it is absorbed in skin. It helped me with my brown spots but it takes really long time.

I really love this lotion. its moisturizing yet very light. I does relief the itchiness. I have very dry skin so I had to wear it multiple time, otherwise it wouldn't work. It slightly pricier than other brands, but I would buy it again when ever I get a deal.
