Perhaps I expected too much. The moisturizer is fine, the serum also. Purity does not remove my eye makeup and I do not wear waterproof mascara. I use the new Visine soothing pads which also remove eye makeup. I cannot use the eye and lip cream around my eyes, they burn and tear. I have had this happen only once before, with La Mer newer eye cream. I will use it around my mouth though. I have not yet tried the peels.
I have use Philosophy products and love most. I got the kit to try the Hope-Dry. Thinking at least I would have the other great basics. The Hope-Dry is the STAR * of the kit. 1st time in a very long time my skin has felt and looked hydrated! IT IS BRINGING MY FACE BACK TO LIFE. I had shyed away,thinking that labeled "sensitive" it must not be potent enough. I WAS WRONG. IT IS THE BEST MOISTURIZER I HAVE USE FOR MY 55 AGING DE-HYDRATED SKIN. I want this as a body product, and also as a tinted moisturizer.
