Kimberly Sayer Reviews
We love Kimberly Sayer. Find out what our customers have to say about the range of Kimberly Sayer products.
This is a great cleanser, it doesn't irritate the skin, it smells of soft lavender and is packaged like high end brands like Clinique, which gives the feeling of a real treat every time you wash your face! Love it and will definitely be buying Kimberly Sayer products again.
It´s a very good toner, I used it all this summer and I didn´t have any problem with my acne. I´very happy with it
I have found this to be the best remedy for my acne .I usually find these products too drying but not this .It is really nice and refreshing does not make my skin sting and smells nice. my skin is soft bright and clear.I use it with the light cleanser and the restore moisturiser
Really pleased with this product. Feels good when applied and the results are definitely noticable. Very economical too and set to last a while. Highly recommend!
This is an incredible product. I''ve tried many, many creams for my bad under eye bags - I''m in my 40s - but this is the only one that has made a considerable difference.
This has made the skin around my eyes so soft. I use this with the restore cream and am very pleased with the results This eye cream is light and very economical it lasts for months.
Recently I have tried samples of this as well as the Kimberley Sayer Light cleanser. There doesn't seem to be much difference between them, they both leave skin soft and neither dry or oily. This one does a good job of removing makeup and although I found the Light version slightly better for stubborn eye makeup, this is still an excellent product.
Pleeeeease never stop selling this! Its the ONLY eye product Ive been able to get to the point of repurchasing several times! Unlike all the others Ive tried it doesnt cause allergies, milia (little white spots under the skin) or spots in surrounding skin. The rest of my skin is also very sensitive so I've also been using this on the rest of my face & neck too. 1 pump does eyes, face and a little way down the neck. It smells beautiful, very very delicate hardly there smell - which is absolutely fantastic for those of us with scent induced migraines! I'm just starting on my 3rd jar and about to order more;-) A tip for getting the pump to produce only a small amount Place your middle finger into and under the pump (really wedge it in there) so that the width of the finger acts as a 'block' to stop the pump being pressed all the way down. Then very gently press! The pump now becomes controllable producing a small amount onto the side of your finger. After showing my mum the 'finger block technique' she can get a small amount out easily too, so It does work with different sized fingers (mine are tiny). I wouldn't recommend opening the bottle as another reviewer suggested to gain a small amount, (unless of course its nearly empty!) or a pot, as there is a reason for it being in an air tight pump being paraben free the lack of air getting to the product is what keeps it fresh and stops bacteria entering . I would imagine you would find the product going off should you continually dip into it. Thank you for bringing us a truly a beautiful product that also works very well under makeup.
I been using this since last year,almost finished a bottle.
What i love about this bottle is its no air pump,as you pump a little from the bottle,the bottom platform began to rise,it's a double layer design,which prevent the bacteria from air get in the bottle,it is divine!!
Although it does pushes a little more each time,but I think it doesn't matter,you could use it in the neck the hand....love this one ,will definitely buy again!
you can feel the soothing effect of cooling lavender straight away when you apply this . excellent on rosacea prone skin. Only need a little each time so lasts well.
This stuff feels so pure when you use it.....I even can spread it over my eyelids. My skin looks better than it ever did. I sometimes feel surprised when I look in the mirror at the end of the day expecting to see a tired face..instead my face looks bright and almost young !....do try this...Linda
I love this cream it is not heavy like most anti aging creams it is is easily absorbed and does not cause my face to break out. smells lovely and it works. I have been using for 3 months now and I would never use anything else.
I adore this cleansing lotion! It has a lovely lemony scent and a light, but creamy texture. I apply it with cotton wool and it just glides over the skin. It doesn't leave me with a tight feeling like other cleansers do and it's perfect for removing make up. I have been using it for about 3 weeks and my break outs have improved and my skin tone seems brighter. I really couldn't be happier!
The best moisturiser I've used! Soft, creamy without greasiness and beautifully scented with calming lavender.
I have recently tried samples of both Kimberley Sayer cleansers. This one is aimed at oily skin, which I don't particularly have, but it is in fact the better of the two as it does a fantastic job of removing stubborn makeup and doesn't dry the skin.
This cleanser has a fantastically weird texture, it is very slippery and almost slimy but in a zesty, moisturising way. I have extremely sensitive skin but suffer from frequent breakouts. This has been fantastic so far. It has the same edible scent as Suki's exfoliating lemongrass cleanser but isn't as harsh in texture which made my skin break out more. Fantastic for anybody with sensitive, acne-prone skin, it feels like healing balm! A real lemony treat!
I have tried many different products over my 15 year battle with hypothyroid induced hyperpigmentation and have found very few that made any difference at all to my skin. I have been using this serum consistantly now morning and evening for two weeks and already can see a lightening in the quite heavily pigmented areas on my cheeks. As an added benefit the anti aging qualities of this product have also improved the texture of my skin. I would recommend that anyone with a long standing hyperpigmentation problem give this product a go.
I bought this for my hubby about 2 months back and he's not even half way through,seems to last forever. It is very gentle on his oily skin and has a fresh citrus smell. He's loving it:)
It's only since being without this for a month while waiting for it to come back in stock that I realise how fantastic it is. I finished my bottle at the end of March since then my sun spots have gotten darker and my face has a redder tone to it and generally looks less clearer and refined. I've just ordered another bottle and can't wait to use it again. This is my Holy Grail.
This is by far the best face scrub i have used. I use it daily as i have dry mature skin and it feels great. Smells divine too.
This is the best face cream I've ever used. Previously I've tried ***/ *** for my sensitive skin, but was fed up with chemicals plus they didn't have SPF. This smells delicious of lavender, feels great on my skin and isn't greasy even though it moisturises really well, and soothes my skin on bad days. Cant recommend it enough.
I have found it hard to find an exfoliator that ticks all the boxes for my 40+ skin - until now! I love this multi-tasking product. I use this in the mornings to cleanse and exfoliate. I'm definitely going to try more from the range...
I've been using it for a couple of weeks and I am really pleased with it! I have dry skin and for me it works best when I first do a steam, then apply the mask and leave it 15 minutes and finally remove it with a muslin cloth. It's good value for money - I think I'll need a couple of months to finish it!
I trialled Kimberly Sayer's products over a year ago when I made a conscious decision to find natural, chemical free products. I've never looked back. This moisturiser is light, non greasy and I have never had any problems with spot breakouts. A high SPF is a must have for me and I will continue to use this product into the foreseeable future.
I really wanted a moisturiser that contained a high mineral sunscreen and that was full of natural ingredients. I've recently found this one and it's perfect. I've used mineral sunscreens before for my body and they are usually oily and very white once applied, so I was a bit sceptical as to whether this would be similar. It's a very light weight cream and was absorbed into my face in seconds leaving absolutely no white/pale areas. It also seems to balance out my dry and oily areas of my face leaving my skin 'just right'. There is a lavender fragrance when applying this cream but it disappears soon after it's absorbed in, which I prefer.
For years I struggled to find a moisturiser that my sensitive skin didn't react to yet which helped combat my dry skin. I've been using Kimberley Sayer Anti-Oxidant Daily Moisturising Cream for over two years now, and I love it. The SPF is an added bonus and my skin hasn't reacted to it badly once. It's rich and creamy yet doesn't clog my pores - perfect for dry skin.
This is more or less the best spf moisturiser I have ever used. It doesn't leave a white cast (black skin) and it doesn't make me oily like others I've tried. Absolutely amazing. Best part is, it's helping with my acne.
I love this. I am prone to apots- that was my main concern using this, but it seems to have improved my skin. It is very moisturizing, but light at the same time. This is the only day cream I will wear as it protects from the sun and pollutants, and it is the only truly natural zinc oxide spf I have used which is effective.
I am very impressed with it! My skin tends to be dry and with this cream, it now feels well moisturised and it also has a natural SPF protection, which is a bonus for my pale skin. Highly recommended!
Having tried several brands over the years, I will stay with this one. I was looking for another brand when I saw the reviews for this moisturiser so I decided to try it and now I have bought almost the whole regime. My skin is much smoother, more moisturised and my complexion alot brighter that people have commented. And this has a sunscreen too - perfect!
I find it almost impossible to find products that are suitable for my rosacea prone skin,even creams for very sensitive skin can make it worse. I used this and Kimberly Sayer Ultra Light Organic Facial Moisturiser - SPF25 and they really calmed and soothed my skin. fantastic. Relief at last !
A really lovely cream that actually does seem to calm acne overnight - I never thought it would be this good - I've used it for 3 nights and I'm hooked.
Its such a treat to find a night cream suitable for oily/ combination skin. The texture is amazing and feels quiterich for my skin but massages right into my skin leaving it feeling soft and moisturised instead of stripping my skin dry as most creams for oily skin are designed to do. The formula is oil free and i have had no breakouts or reactions to the product. Best of all my skin looks brighter and alot clearer with a really youthful texture.
I love the smell of this cream and the fact that it isnt greasy and absorbs quickly. Since using it my breakouts have lessened and where there were marks and scars, these have gone leaving my skin looking really clear. A fantastic product!
HURRAH! Finally, a night cream for oily skin that's the perfect consistency and smells beautiful too. I've got a really oily t-zone and I'm so prone to blocked pores. I've used so many night creams, and half of them were not really suitable for oily skin. After cleansing and toning, even oily skin needs some nourishment and moisturising. This is the most gorgeous night cream I've EVER found. Firstly, it smells DIVINE, like a spa product, but better. A lovely relaxing and soothing fragrance that instantly calms and sends you into that blissful state when you smell the most stunning fragrance (it does me anyway!) You can really smell the distinct organic and natural ingredients in the product. Secondly, it sinks into the skin beautifully and absorbs like a dream, literally seconds and it's gone. My skin is left feeling hydrated and soft, but with no greasiness or oily residue, nothing at all to make it feel icky and sticky. I cannot recommend Kimberly Sayer products highly enough, I use the Ultra Light Day Cream for oily skin too, and both have made such a difference to my skin. I shall be using this forever now, unless they stop making it, which I hope they don't. This is my wonder product for night time. Pure bliss.
This is such a gorgeous moisturiser. I should start by mentioning how awful my skin is. I have very bad combination skin with some live acne and some very dark scars. I have tried other creams but have found even ones that claim to be light still leave me with very oily skin. Since i have been using this at night, along with the ultra light moisturiser my skin has been so soft and not at all oily. i also wake up to a brighter looking face. The smell is lovely, calming and perfect to go to bed to :) Ive only been using this a week and already Im hooked! cant recommend it enough!
Thank you thank you thank you...I am 28 years old and suffer with painful acne. I have spent thousands of pounds on creams and treatments that promise the world and I can honestly say that this is the only cream that actually works. It doesn't cure my acne (which I don't believe any product can do) but it almost reduces my inflamed acne overnight when I have a bad outbreak and makes my skin so much more comfortable. It also reduces the red marks dramatically quicker than any other cream I have used. Others who suffer with spots will understand how disheartening an outbreak can be, but using this cream gives me the reassurance to know that they will never be as bad and painful and unsightly as they once were. Thank you so much.x
I have normal skin and I have been using for 6 months,I can say that it's the best cream I have ever used,the smell is nice too
I am in love with this day cream! I have super dry and sensitive skin and this is great. I wanted something with an spf and this is perfect!
I have been using this product for nearly two years now and I can honestly say that I haven't found a better face cream and sunscreen in one. Having pale, sensitive & dry skin, this smoothes, moisterises and protects all year around but especially now in summer. Even though this is a cream, it isn't 'heavy' and so doesn't feel like it's overloading your skin in the warmer months. Try it and see for yourselves!
Being a fan of Kimberly Sayer Anti-Oxidant Daily Moisturising Cream, I was curious to try this and for me, it's another hit. Not too heavy so your skin doesn't get clogged up, not too light so your face feels taught. It does what it says on the packaging, soothes a tired face and smooths away those little fine lines and has a very gentle and pleasant fragrance.
This is cream is very good, it´s look to much for an oily skin but I can tell you that it´s perfect for the cold winter.
I was reluctant to move away from my Weleda evening moisturiser but wanted to try this as I love the day one and I am converted. As I have dry patches on my forehead and cheeks I use this alone, or under the evening moisturiser and sometimes the day one too and it is not heavy at all. It sinks in quickly and leaves my skin much softer and nourished. Lines are softened.
I have repurchased this product several times in the past few years but thought it was worth re-reviewing as it is now even better as it has been reformulated; admittedly the bottle now contains 120ml rather than the previous amount of 150ml but it is now spf30 (versus spf25) and the formulation is so much better - still has the lovely lemony smell and leaves no trace of whiteness but it manages to feel more luxurious as you apply whilst being much more matte once it soaks in. I loved the 'old' one but found it made me a tad shiny - this leaves my skin feeling supple & velvety yet completely matte. This is now THE perfect sunscreen, I will never feel compelled to try anything else.
Excellent day cream even for oily skins which are very sensitive in winter because of the cold. It´s absorved very fast
I love it! Nice and light, absorbs well, lovely lemony smell and great spf which doesn't make you look like a ghost! Highy recommended!
I'm using this product for about 2 weeks now, and I'm very happy with it. Very light, quickly absorbed with a nice smell, but the most important advantage of this cream - it does not leave my skin irritant and allergic as most of the products do. Recommend!
I found this brilliant for my rosacea prone skin, I used this and Kimberly Sayer Tangerine & Calendula Healing Light Organic Night Cream and they really soothed and calmed my skin after a rosacea breakout .
This cream is my favourite SPF moisturiser. The reason being it is so light for the skin. I suffered from severe acne and the cream helped to prevent my acne returning. Its easy to apply with only a small amount needed. It lasted me 7 months altogether! The ingredients are 100% natural and at least 95% organic. The SPF is natural rather than chemical meaning the SPF protection lasts all day. It's transparent when applied. It is extremely cost effective and it smells quite citrusy and fresh. Overall a very good buy. Underneath I like to use the Organic Apoteke Serum.
This is an excellent moisturiser, easily absorbed and great value as it comes in a huge pump and lasts ages.
I think this moisturiser is excellent, as its a moisturiser and a high SPF. I also use it around my eyes too so there's no need for an day eye cream! Its real good value for money. I love it also because its all natural and it contains no alcohol. It quite light and yet very moisturisering! I put a lip balm on and then this on top to protect my lips. I think I've finally found my HG day cream!
As with all other reviewers, I love this product! I struggled to find a moisturiser with SPF as high as 30 for combination skin. It's pricey but it's worth it. It lasts well, gives pretty decent sun protection, and my spot-prone skin is no more spot-prone than usual with this! And yes, it does smell lovely too.
I tried this product because it was recommended specifically for combination/oily skin and it hasn't disappointed. I have a very greasy T-zone and dry cheeks which means that most moisturisers leave me with great cheeks but very shiny T-zone. This one doesn't! It absorbs very rapidly, especially if you massage it in a little bit and because it's so light it is very easy to adjust the amount you use to the requirements of your face. I did think it was a little too citrussy at first (this normally causes redness on my cheeks), but I've gotten used to that with no reaction at all. I'd recommend this to anyone who who needs the moisture but not the oil. The bottle lasts forever too, so it's more than worth the price compared to other moisturisers!
This the best moisturiser I've ever had, is light, not greasy and very suitable for sensitive skin¡¡, I simply love it
Been using for some weeks (although i only use it when I go to the beach or the pool) and it doesn't make me break out and honestly that was the only thing i was looking for!!!
This is a lovely day cream with a really light texture - its hard to beleive that this moisturiser contains a high SPF. It leaves skin nice and matte whilst providing the right amount of moisture. A treat for my oily skin and fantastic value for money as you are getting a 150ml size.
I never used to bother with moisturiser as I could never find one which suited my skin. I stumbled across Kimberly Sayer's range and haven't looked back. I love the fact it has a high spf, is organic and best of all doesn't make my skin shiny or greasy looking! It's my HG of moisturisers!!
This is truly the best moisturiser I've ever used! It's light, matte and doesn't clog my pores like many SPF moisurisers do, and I love that it offers physical rather than chemical sun protection. The zingy, uplifting lemony scent makes it perfect for summer!
This is the first SPF moisturiser I've found that doesn't make my oily skin breakout and it smells fantastic. I love it.
This moisturiser smells fantastic and is great value for money as it lasts for months. I use it daily on my face and neck and also on my hands. I have normal to dry skin so I use a facial oil underneath to ensure enough hydration, which works really well for me. I would definitely recommend this product to others.
This product is truly wonderful. I have combination skin, and often struggle with cream moisturisers as they make me look shiny along my T-zone. This Kimberly Sayer moisturiser is so light it absorbs straight into your skin. I love it, and am constantly recommending it to friends and family. Try it - You'll love it!
This moisturizer is a life saver! I totally love how it's absorbed into the skin leaving no greasy feel or look! just like you have noting on your face but you are having all the good benefits, the moisturizer factors, the protection and the skin-friendly ingredients!
It lasts for so long, I have been using my bottle since 8 months now and it's still just under half now although I use it every single morning and sometimes twice a day.
You don't need much product, about two small bumps are just enough which explains why it lasts so long.
I am going to repurchase this again until I find a better product! which I don't think will happen any sooner!
I really like this moisturiser, like the high SPF, the smell and the fact that it last ages!
... and that is saying something, because I have tried hundreds! I have always had problems finding a decent moisturiser with an SPF - having dark skin, most moisturisers have left me with a white sheen on my face, looking like I had dipped my head in a bag of flour. This is perfect.
I bought this on the strength of the other reviews and it does no dissapoint, it is a pleasure to use!
This is so light and refreshing and is great for oily skin like mine. I really feel like it wakes me up in the morning when I put it on. I love the smell which is like a citrus. The price isn't exactly cheap but it lasts a long time and because it has such a high SPF and is organic, it is worth every penny.
As someone who has long suffered with oily skin and occasional breakouts, this moisturiser has been a godsend. It's one of the only moisturisers for oily skin I found which helped control oily skin, as well as providing some sunscreen cover. It also lasts ages- my first lot has lasted nearly 5 months of daily use, so I think it's great value. Plus it smells heavenly, and is a treat to apply first thing!
This is a very nice product for normal, sensitive skin. I would not recommend it for dry or dehydrated skin unless you add something rich to it. It creates a thin white layer that sticks to the skin similar to foundation but not noticeably white. I like it much more than the "Daily Moisturizing Cream-SPF30" as the cream one rubs off too easily in a crumpling messy way.
I just wanted to make a comment about how good this is as a suncream. I have been using it as a day cream for a while and liked it anyway, but when I went on holiday and used it as my facial suncream I was SO impressed. Its light, doesn't give me spots and I didnt burn at all (I have fair skin) I also didnt need to reapply as often as my regular suncream that i was using on my body. Highly recommend!
I ordered a sample of this before ordering a full size as my oily, irritable, acne prone skin throws a wobbler as most creams and sun creams. Used it for a few days and skin loves it. Does what it should without overloading the skin or being too drying (thus giving you a worse problem). The sun factor is a big bonus for me as I get to protect my skin without co promising on my skincare. I ordered a full size version and what struck me the most is how big the bottle is! I was really shocked when it arrived. Not that I thought it was pricey but the size totally makes this a fantastic buy. 5 well earned stars.
I splashed out on this one after reading online reviews. I had been frustrated on holiday that I had to put greasy SPF30+ sunscreen on my face, making me look very shiny in every photo, and blocking my pores to the point of breakouts. Again there’s an easy pump dispenser, and a little goes a long, long way. You only need to press the pump twice to get two tiny drops that will cover your whole face. It is absorbed easily, and has the most wonderful citrus fragrance. Even my other half commented on how good it smelled. There’s a tiny bit of surface shine, but it is very light. I have tested it abroad and it certainly did offer sun protection, and didn’t block my pores in the heat. In the UK, it has been great in not blocking my pores on those more humid days we can sometimes get in summer months. It is not heavy duty enough for me in the British winter so this is the one I now use in the summer months, and on holiday in hot places. It lasts ages, at twice the amount of the two moisturisers below. A good investment.
What a discovery, i live in a very warm climate and have never found a moisturiser light enough with spf for day wear..........this is just absolutely perfect, i dont even know i am wearing it, no more shine no more sticky suncreams FAB !! Lovely fresh clean fragrance too .......have also invested in night cream and ageing cream.......equally impressive ....... !! Thank you Kimberley !!
This product seems too good to be true! After so many years trying to find a good moisturiser for my oily, acne-prone skin, I found a perfect one and with SPF 30!! Thank you Kimberly for this amazing product and thank you Love Lula for having this brand!!
I had been using this product for about five years and have always loved it so was a little worried when I noticed it had been reformulated. I am not the least disappointed with the reformulated version - it is not quite as light as the original but is still very good. I am disappointed with the drop from 150ml to 120ml for the same price though - that is a bit cheeky.
I rarely write reviews for skincare because I do not normally find skincare products that Wow me!
This is the first decent moisturise I've found as guy with an good quality spf that doesn't try the skin out or leave it too oily.
Just leaves my skin feeling comfortable and balanced!
& the smell for me is just a bonus.
I've never enjoyed creams with SPF since they'll often leave a greasy after-touch. This one is an exception and is brilliant - light texture, big size, and doesn't feel greasy at all! My skin loves to drink it every morning.
(Thanks to Lovelula so I can choose this as a sample before checkout!)
I ordered this yesterday, came today. Super fast delivery thank you! I can't believe i haven't found this sooner! For the amount you get it's totally worth the money. It soaks into your skin, doesn't leave any oil or shine like most organic sun screens, smells amazing i can't rate this enough i love it. I got the tangerine night cream tester with this order buying that next :):):)
not bad item. very light and simple and hasnt broken me out!
...for my mixed spots prone skin with dry surface! Lovely fresh scent, sinks in completely and gives moisture and protection. I got a sample of this and was using it under make up, will get full size. Just what I was looking for as everyday cream!
Very good mask. Cleans well but also leaves skin very soft.
Used this cream for a recent beach holiday. It has a lovely light texture and my face got a nice even tan and felt well moisturised. Compared to other face spfs I think I got less cloggd pores and didn't bring on any spots either. Really nice zesty smell too.
having tried several products over the last couple of months i think my skin had just about had enough! so when i tried this i wasn't overly keen to start with - it felt a little greasy in my hands (i'd used too much) but soaked in well. now i love it - have used it consistently for 3 weeks and it's brilliant. i've discovered that using a small amount and then leaving it and using a further small amount has really worked well for me - gradual build up of moisture without the horrible t-zone oil. love it (although the top keeps falling off in my gym bag!).
i really like this - can actually feel it gently warming under my eyes when it's applied. it's lovely. but the pump on the bottle is ferocious!! says use a tiny amount - i have now had to get the 'pump action' down to an art form to get a tiny amount out! have actually just started unscrewing the whole contraption because it throws out so much product with each downpress that i'd have enough to cover at least 20 eyes! it's a shame as it's expensive and i've just wasted it - albeit a small amount, but even so. might just be my particular bottle but maybe a pot better....
I have combination skin with pores that clog easily and have been using this Kimberly Sayer Ultra Light moisturiser with SPF30 in the summer and on holiday for a year or two. My skin burns easily and I don't like wearing normal sun screen on my face as it causes break outs. Like some other reviewers, the change in formula has not gone unnoticed, but at least the SPF has increased to 30 from 25, so that's not a bad thing! I haven't noticed anything too detrimental after the switch. I love the smell of this product, and how it doesn't leave my face looking too shiny. It is nowhere near heavy duty enough however for the British Winter and I am searching for a different product at the moment - I think I'll try the Kimberley Sayer Antioxidant Daily Moisturiser next. I have also tried the Antipodes Immortal Moisturiser with SPF 15, and that is a nice one also but I prefer a higher SPF, and that one is more expensive (smaller bottle, higher price!).
I'm so impressed with this product. I've tried several facial moisturisers on my neck and they always give me spots there- this one doesn't, it has a high SPF, it's light, natural and I'm a big fan already.
this is a convenient moisturizer for day time usage and it also acts as spf
I like this cream as it's not over-heavy like some anti-aging creams can be. It feels very nourishing and absorbs well, leaving a pleasant lavender scent. I use it as and when my skin needs a bit of extra tlc. Very happy with this product.
I think this would make a great primer as it leaves my skin very matte and flawless. It has a similar texture to the day spf cream in that it's light but moisturizing and eliminates all shine. It wasn't as heavy as I expected and sometimes I feel I need more moisture. So whilst I do like the lightness I think I need a bit more moisture for night time.
This cream has it all antioxidant, 25 SPF and a gorgeous fresh smell - a little like fluffy orange meringue pie! It's light and easily absorbed without over loading the skin, so perfect for summer. Thanks Lula! Love you!!! :o)
Good so far! Smells very nice and tightens the skin. Shame about the plastic bottle and I can see the products are made in USA, even the brand is greatly advertised as UK.
I have tried both this and its counterpart for oily skin. This is wonderful, very nourishing, not too greasy or heavy and it doesn't leave a white sheen on the skin (as many SPF moisturisers do when it comes to dark skin), but it loses half a point for the packaging - being preservative-free, it goes off faster than you can use it up. I had a good 10+ applications left in the pot when it started smelling a bit funny. If this were packaged in an airless pump bottle like the oily skin version, it would have the full 5 stars.
I've used the ultra light version for years but now I'm 40 decided to try this for the extra anti oxidants. Pleasantly surprised as I was expecting a heavier texture due to the jar packaging but it really is fluid enough to go in a pump, which I'd prefer for ease of use, economy & hygiene. Really like the feel on my skin but I personally find the strong lavender scent off putting. Half the amount in the jar for the same cost as the ultra light pump so those anti oxidants had better be good! Great mineral spf though.
This is a light and fresh moisturiser. I would say better for younger skin as i do have to use a night cream to compliment it. Signature Kimberley Sayer scent of Lavender which is gorgeous. This is a great product.
I put this on about an hour before going to bed as it takes quite some time to sink in but my skin looks and feels fabulous in the morning.
Love the texture of the mask, basically I love Kimberly Sayer products after trying this mask.It helps to deep cleanse the skin without drying. Just follow the intruction of using. SKin appears to be clean and smooth after using this. I have bought more than one jar to date.
I had really high hopes for this mask, as I do think Kimberley Sayer products are very nice and a pleasure to use. It's ok, but it didn't have the wow factor I was expecting. My skin feels fine the day after I've used it as an overnight leave on treatment, but not particularly special or rehydrated. Having said that, I've since ordered a trial size of the french clay mask by Kimberley Sayer and it was lovely...so I'll be ordering that!
This one comes in a traditional pot with screw lid, which I found odd after using pump dispensers for so long. It does mean that getting the right amount is more difficult and I whizzed through this entire pot in only a few months, making it terribly expensive per use. There’s a very strong lavender scent – I love lavender, this isn’t an issue for me – and the cream does feel good going on, though you do have to rub it in a bit. It doesn’t leave a heavy sheen on the skin and my pores felt like they could breathe. I wish it came in a pump dispenser! Then it might be economical and it would get an extra star. As it stands, like the Antipodes one, it’s far too pricey per use to warrant it.
Unfortunately this made my eyes itch and after a few days I came out in a rash. It did have a nice texture and seemed moisturizing, which probably explains all the great reviews. Maybe not for super sensitive eyes, but seems like a great cream overall. Although the pump is a little bit frustrating as it is difficult to get a small amount out at a time.
I had a sample of this product to try, so this review is based on a 5-6 days trial period. I applied this cream at night, and my face was very soft in the morning, although not moisturised enough. I think it'd be a great summer product for my combination skin; it isn't greasy, doesn't clog pores and is easily absorbed by the skin. The only down point is the smell, I can't get past it.
This product is good value for money except it did not work for me. My skin is very dry after one application.
I've still got the whole pot to use which is fine, but I have noticed that for my combination skin it is perhaps a bit too rich to apply daily as I seem to have had more spots appear since using it, although my skin does feel nice and soft the next day. Could be a complete coincidence and unrelated to the cream, but thought it worth mentioning as an honest review.
I wouldn't recommend this product for sensitive skin. Even though it gives your skin a very slight white finish because of the zink oxide my skin looked always a bit red for the entire day while using the cream. I really wanted to work it, because I very much liked the fine texture and the combination of day- and sunscreen. but I guess the high amount of lavender has irritated my sensitive skin. Lavender is a well known irritant, so I find it misguiding to declare this product suitable for sensitive skin, as done so in the description.
I must be the odd one out, as I just could not get on with this moisturiser - I found it irritated my sensitive skin, leaving my face feeling uncomfortable. My boyfriend got the rest of the pot and he liked it, so I can only conclude that it's great for someone who doesn't have sensitive skin.
I found this left a residue on my face which led to congestion. I'm sure it would be great for drier skins, but for my combination skin it was not really exfoliating enough whilst being too heavy.
lovely smell sounds like a miracle worker but left my skin with small bumps under the skin on my cheeks not so bad on forehead,did not reduce acne scar
I was really excited to read about this product, and try it. Sadly, this isn't doing anything for my skin, apart from making my skin oilier, and I've got a lot more spots/pimples. I've got mature combination skin that's very difficult to control. The plus points are: it's reasonably priced, it's natural and the packaging and delivery are first class.
I agree, this once was a truly fantastic product but is it anymore? The ingredients have changed almost beyond recognition. Why change something so great? Now the main ingredient is sun block. And the bottle has shrunk! It used to be 150mls!when it won the award in 2009 it was a very different product!
I had a bad skin reaction to this product. My skin has been left red, swollen and sore. Needless to say I will not be using it again.
I really don´t like this toner. I tried the one for oily skins in summer and is very good so this winter I decided to try the version for sensitive skins but I don´t feel any difference in my skin between use it or not
