I learned my lesson with this product that frangrance is not a smart blind buy. Everything about this told me I’d love it - from the Neroli orange to the whole thing about the Mediterranean Isles. When I sprayed this, I smelled the EXACT Avon powder my grandmother let me play with when I was younger. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a good memory. I was absolutely shocked. Anyway, I am sticking with TF Soleil Blanc, Black Orchid, and F****** Fabulous.
I don’t have the most refined nose when it comes to perfumes but there is no way I would ever mistake this for a women’s perfume. This was so upsetting becuse it was a free sample and I usually love Tom Ford scents. I had to wash my sweater after wearing it because it was just suffocating me. My son and husband don’t even want it. 😣
I’m not sure about brightening, but it is a good fermented product and a little goes a long way. I’d say it’s probably not as effective (for me) as SK-II Essence but far more effective than other cheaper fermented so far.
After trying so many sherbet type cleansers, this is my Holy Grail. Everything is perfect - texture, slip, smell (heavenly!), gentleness yet strong enough to even remove my tubular mascara with no rubbing.
I can’t decide if I like this or Celebrity Skin better! I used both with the Celebrity Skin velour lip liner and contrary to the bad reviews, I thought it was great! The only thing I don’t like is having to sharpen constantly but I understand it’s more sanitary than a retractable pencil. Or at least Jeffrey says so...🤷🏼♀️
