Is this the same product?
I have read the other four reviews for this product and I am really amazed that it has such high ratings. I received a sample of this in the mail. I had purchased the lip healing product in this line previously, and thought it was okay--but JUST okay--so thought I'd see what else there is to this brand that justifies the high prices. I admit that when I first put it on, my skin did feel firmer. But that was the only positive thing I could say about it, and the negatives far outweighed that. The fragrance is overwhelming and not the least pleasant. It smells like dead roses that have been mixed with some oil of some sort. Then I read the ingredient list and I was shocked at how many known skin irritants are in this cream. That explained why my cheeks were turning red within just a few minutes of applying it. And I am being very honest when I tell you that I am NOT one of those people who has such fragile skin that I am constantly comparing about my skin being irritated. I already had my foundation on and had started to apply my eye shadow when I just could not take the odor anymore and could see that my face was getting pinker, so I stopped, cleansed my face, and did a complete skincare regimen with my usual skincare line. The smell lingered, but that may have been just a sense memory, or it may have been the residue of the product on my tissues. Whatever it was, this was the worst skincare experience I have had in many, many years. No one should be putting some of these ingredients on their face. And there are FAR better products out there at less cost than this one. (Btw, I checked the ingredient list of some of the other products in this line, and I am really shocked that they are getting anyone to buy this product line.)
