I came across this product while waiting at the Calgary airport. A little shop called Soap Stories YYC was giving samples of soap, and the woman who was helping me wanted to show me a nail buffer. See my review on the Gratiae Beautifying Nail Kit for the scoop on that.
After buying the nail kit, she wanted to show me some of their facial products. One, I'm a sucker for high pressure sales tactics, so I went along even though I knew better. Two, I had an hour's wait so I had nothing better to do with my time. She showed me this cleanser and the Gratiae Replenishing Eye Serum. This was $70 and the serum was $260. I tried to get out of it by simply saying I can't afford it, but she kept pushing and giving me "a very special deal". In the end I did buy the cleanser for $40.
She knew that I'm not planning on changing my current facial products (Origins - great stuff!), but this is meant to be used 2-3 times a week to help exfoliate the skin and restore balance to my frustratingly oily face. It's mildly abrasive, and I like the way my skin feels after using it.
The same cleanser is $49.99 on the Gratiae website, so I guess it evens out from being hosed on the nail kit. And there is no way I can justify the cost of the eye serum. Like I said in the other review, save yourself the high pressure sales tactics, and take a look on www.gratiae.ca.
