Like a few others reviewing this brand's product, my review is based on a sample I received. Yes, it felt wonderful on my skin so why only 3 stars you may ask? I’m not averse to buying luxury skincare or cosmetics but if I’m going to pay £135 for just one part of my skincare regime, I want to do some research as to the effectiveness. And apart from the company’s spiel on their delivery system, I couldn’t find anything impartial. What also irritates me a bit is that the shaving cream for men with the same delivery system is just £18 when the cheapest product with this system in it for women is £44.
Ok, so the product feels lovely on my skin as did the sample of essence which I raved about. This has a subtle gold fleck in it although not sure if this is actually the gold or the mica in it. I may be tempted one day to try their discovery kit who knows but for now o will stick to the ordinary and other brands that are less expensive and have lots of impartial evidence behind them. It’s too high a price to take that gamble. Sorry, but if you want the feel-good factor of a luxury product that feels good on the skin and you have the money for a splurge- go for it because I can’t deny it feels lovely.
