I can use Lancome face creams without getting the stinging eyes I experience with many other brands. I believe this is due to fragrances or other chemicals in the other brands. There is a wide selection of creams to suit different skin needs, which can vary throughout the year. They also have frequent promotions at various stores offering free selections of cosmetics in attractive makeup bags with a minimum purchase. Due to making my purchases during these promotions I seldom have to buy lipstick, mascara, eye shadow, or other makeup articles which I use sparingly anyway.
