Eureka! This REALLY works!
I've been meaning to try this for a while, and finally took the plunge. (And very reasonably priced.) It's recommended that you use the "Gamma Hydroxy" creme first, to acclimatise your skin before moving up to the "Forte". I have very resistent skin, and didn't feel I needed to use the lighter type, so started off applying the Forte once a night. Next morning, my daughter commented on how good my skin looked! After a day or two, I started to get rough patches, mainly on the top lip and cheek area. My skin developed a few red patches, so I gave it a rest for one night, to continue the next night. KEEP AT IT! After about a week, your skin will look and feel AMAZING. Satin smooth, smaller pores and more even toned. Really, don't bother spending hundreds of dollars on products that rarely deliver. I've used many creams in my 47 years, and am as fussy as they come, but I've done all the work for you. Now it's your turn to reap the benefits. They recommend you apply it twice a day, but I find once a day in the evening does the trick. Hot tips: use on the neck and hands, too!! And (of course!) use a SPF during the day, as the ingredients can make you sensitive to the sun. Lastly, the skin doctors SuperMoist SPF 30 is the absolute best I have ever used. So that's it. Two products you only really need.

Waste of money
Disappointing from a company that usually makes amazing products. It has quite a nice taste, but your lips take a while before they start to tingle. Lip plumping? Absolutely not.

Really DOES as it says!
As someone on the wrong side of their 40's, I have started to notice those fine ridges in my skin texture, especially on my arms, neck and decolette. I received this as a GWP, and thought I'd give it a go. Most creams do NOT do as they claim, but this does! I noticed after a few days, my skin looks much more even toned, softer and (best of all) much younger, with a noted improvement in those dry ridges! It says on the pack to use twice daily, but I find you get great results using just ONCE a day, at night. Best results are applying cream after exfoliating skin. I feel far more confident wearing low-necked T-shirts and bare arms. Thanks clinique!

With a delicate, dreamy fragrance, SPF 25 and ease of use, this is the nicest foundation I have ever used. It's marketed as being "medium" coverage, but I find it steers towards light coverage. (Mind you, I always apply foundation with a sponge.) The big SPF factor steered me towards trying this, as I burn easily and want beauty combined with practicality! I have a hard time getting a colour to match my fair skintone. Ivory 101 is perfect. Not too yellow or pink. BIG bonus : the product is dispensed with a pump. Easy and hygienic.

This product smells like gorgeous chocolate, yet isn't overpowering. Absorbs quickly. Amazing price. I use it on my arms, hands and neck before bedtime, after showering. Go on...pamper yourself!

Good value and nice colours
I always like a blue-based pink blush, and these do the trick. They ARE delicate in colour, though, so they may not show up well on darker skin tones. The brush provided is convenient, too. Great value for the price, but Revlon need to manufacture some darker shades.

May as well rub water on your face...
Lots of hype with this product, and I've been using it for about 4 weeks, with absolutely NO results! It absorbs quickly, but does absolutely nothing! So....rub water on your face for the same result and no cost to you!

VERY disappointed with this. The white base coat seems OK, but makes no difference to the length or thickness of your lashes, once the black coat is applied. There is NO extentsion of lashes whatsoever, and NO thickening effect, no matter how many times you are franticaly applying layer after layer! Brush is hard to "grab" onto the lower lashes.

Not as good as the XL booster
I always thought that Lancome made only one mascara booster. This type is NOWHERE near as good as the "XL" booster. It has no effect on mascara application whatever. My tip? Only buy the Lancome booster with XL in the title (it comes in a WHITE tube)...it's brilliant!

I have a big problem with these types of curved brushes. When you withdraw the brush from the tube, it pulls out WAY too much product! Straight brushes are better, as most of the product is "stripped" off. With this mascara, I have to constantly wipe the excess off, an unhygienic practice. Washes off in big clumps. Yech.
