I enjoy using it, but why does it contain xylitol?

      Comments about Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Cooling Gel:

      I have been enjoying using this. It feels cool (literally!) going on, absorbs quickly, and doesn't feel greasy or look shiny at all. Then I took a look at the ingredient list. It contains xylitol. Xylitol is a sugar alcohol used for sweetening food. Why in the world would they put it in this gel? Many people, including myself, can not use (or don't want to use) sugar alcohols. And Xylitol is especially dangerous to have around if you own dogs. It is very toxic to dogs. Even small amounts can kill a dog. I will not buy this product again and it's too bad, because I did like it. But I don't want to be absorbing sugar alcohols through my skin, and I don't want to be risking my dog getting into this stuff. I didn't think to check the label when I bought it. I mean, who thinks a sugar alcohol is going to be in your face cream?

            Comments about Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Cooling Gel:

            I was skeptical but thought I'd give it a try since Clarins discontinued the Hydra-Quench cream Gel and this was the closest replacement I could find. I actually think this is a much better product. My face isn't greasy at all - even at the end of a long day, but it's not dry. Works great on my oily skin.

              I've never used a high priced moisturizer before. This was the one I decided to try and I love it! It's not greasy at all and since it's gel, it feels very hydrating! Highly recommend!!

                Comments about Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Cooling Gel:

                I received a deluxe sample of this and fell in love with it. Especially the heavenly smell. I am very oily, so I use mattifying products in the morning, anf At night I use moisturizing products like this. It is not greasy and soaks in well. In a hour or so, it does have me a tad shiny in the t zone, but I don't care so much since I use it at night. The number one reason I would consider purchasing the full size is the smell. I cannot even describe how good it smells.

                      Got this when another similar product was sold out. It seems to work just as well, as it contains the same effective ingredients. Great for oily/combo skin.
