Anyways, I have been using this moisturizer since 5th grade and it's always done me justice! It smells nice and doesn't make my skin red, itchy, or irritated!!

    Promising review: "Recently got to test a Bioderma product and loved it, so I purchased some things on my own. This was an impulse buy before I checked out, and I love it so far. Can't give it five stars since I have only used it a few times. It works great as far as reducing shine and cleaning out pores. I haven't noticed a reduction in size. The smell is light and it feels nice. Great for sensitive skin or if you want to feel the sensation of a scrub but not the harshness of one." —Sarah10

    Price: $19.90

I will not waste my money anymore on products that don't work." —Angel

This supposedly winds you down while removing makeup with sea minerals and sea kelp extract. Not sure it calmed me down but it sure smells good so maybe it did!

I have sensitive skin that tends to be on the dryer side, plus hormonal acne and so it's very rare when I find a product that works and this cleanser does! It's really great and helps so much! I still do get acne, but like a pimple here and there. My cystic acne on my chin has cleared up! I know I can never totally get rid of acne 100% but I'm glad I found something that calms my acne down and works!" —Srlausch

She remembered using Olay total effects 7-in-one face cream years ago and liked it. So I bought the whole series for her. She was impressed again!
