This is a great eye cream. The moisture is just right - when I wake up in the morning, my undereye area is soooo soft. As far as the anti-aging properties, I can't attest to that. I don't have wrinkles, fine lines or crow's feet. I am 31 and using this as a preventative measure. It would probably take a long while for me to see that kind of result. I did read some of the reviews, and a woman mentioned sunscreen in this product. I don't think there is a sunscreen in here. Consistency is a litle odd - sort of spongey and hard to get out of the jar (especially with nails) but great cream.

Oh, how I wish I could love this!
Admittedly, I have been having difficulties lately with tangles in my hair in the shower. I have tried several different brands of shampoos and conditioners with not much luck. I think this is a nice conditioner, and leaves my hair feeling soft after I blowdry. However, it does not take the tangles out of my long, thick hair. I think I might need a little extra ooooomph. My hair is in really good condition, but it is long and color treated. It is nice that Aussie has a "No worries" guarantee; however the customer has to pay to ship the bottle back, which would probably be close to the cost of the conditioner to begin with, around $3. For me personally, I think there are better options out there.

I recently purchased this mascara on a whim - my mom uses the regular version and insisted I try it. I did get amazing length after my standard three coats; however, I had racoon eyes and eyelash loss after 6 hours or so. I would continue to use as a regular mascara, but not as waterproof, asuming I don't lose more eyelashes.

This conditioner, for me, really lacked. It left my long hair still tangled and it had a really odd smell and consistency. The smell was unpleasant and not the same as the shampoo. I will be returning both to Ulta.

Too Much Alcohol
This product has been compared often in ads to Clinique's Moisture Surge Extra, which is a pink gel. I have tried the Clinique product several years back and liked it. However, this product was not moisturizing enough for me. I am 31 and my skin has always been fairly oily until I turned 30. It is still oily, but it gets oily as the day goes on and it isn't as much as it used to be. I much anticipated this product, but when I looked at the ingredient list, I was surprised that alcohol was listed as the second ingredient. I thought, well, I'll still give it a shot! (I thought I could use it with my Dermalogica Active Moist to bust my moisturization without having to spend more money on another Dermalogica product.) When I opened the jar, it smelled very strongly of alcohol. I then applied it to my face and it left my skin looking dull andmy cheeks turned a little red for a moment. My other moisturizer leaves it looking healthy and dewy. Maybe this would be best for someone in their teens or twenties with excessive oil production and/or acne. For me and my comb dry skin, it wasn't enough.

Could Be Better
My hair is long and thick, with highlites. Not really dry per se, but I thought I could use this for color treated as well. I did notice less hair loss in the shower, and it does have a nice smell, but it still left my hair a little tangled. I am a little disappointed - I was torn between this product and Redken Color Extend, but frankly the reviews for this product (shampoo as well) were better. My hair is not difficult, so I am not sure how people with truly dry hair don't have tangles with this poduct.

Nice smell, lathers well and very little is needed. It does have a ph to it but I am not really sure what the benefits are. I have noticed less hair loss in the shower, but as far as it being for dry hair, mine is color treated, not really dry, but it is still left a bit tangled.

I recently was on the prowl for a good waterproof mascara and I always look at the reviews here at Total Beauty before I purchase. This was one rare instance when the product truly did NOT work for me. I applied my standard two coats and within just a couple of hours, I was getting flaking in my eye and it was more than uncomfortable - it was painful. It felt like I had sharp pieces of medal. I was driving at the time, and had to pull over to check my eyes and try to rinse them. Then, later in the day, maybe 6 hours later, I had very "nice" racoon eyes, which frankly, I have heard many women complain about this issue with all sorts of mascaras but I personally have never had this problem. Then, in the evening when I went to remove the product, I at first used a makeup remover wipe; I kept wiping and wiping and still there was residue. I then switched to a waterproof liquid remover and wiped and wiped and couldn't get my lashes completely clean. When I woke up the next morning, I had a black line under my eyes from the mascara. This truly was an awful product for me and in particular due to the painful flakes, which I do not wear contacts or have sensitive eyes. The ONLY thing I liked about it was the color, Carbon Black, which was the Blackest mascara I had used. The color was very nice and I am disappointed.

I received a free sample of this product with a purchase and I thought it worked well. My skin is oiler, and this product, although not actually a cleanser, feels like a heavy lotion that you massage on your face to remove make-up. I felt the product was very effective, but I would never spend this kind of money for a makeup remover when I could use baby wipes or L'oreal's Waterproof remover, which works great. Suggested if your skin is on the drier sensitive side and you don't mind the cost.

I am SO, SO pleased with this moisturizer. It is perfect for oilier skins, has a great smell, and a good consistency. I am curious as to how it will go as we enter the Winter months as far as enough moisture goes. But that would not be the fault of this product - as it states it is for oilier skins, and my skin is less oily during the Winter months. I would definately suggest this product! The only negative is the price, which is expected with Dermalogica products.
