I've been recovering from perioral dermatitis (from using too many harsh products) as well as acne, so I have had to go from not using any product at all on my skin to trying out gentle cleansers and day creams to get rid of all the excess oils my skin's been producing. I have to say that this is perfect for those of us with sensitive skin - it's not as moisturizing as it could be, but it does make your skin feel firm, soft, and radiant! I also feel like this in combination with the gentle cleanser really helps keep my skin protected from pollution and harsh sunlight, even though it has no SPF in it. All in all, I would definitely give this product a go if you have sensitive skin, especially if it's slightly oily as well. Couple this with the gentle cleanser and you've got yourself a beautiful package that will make your skin feel so much calmer.

My ONLY face cream
I've been using the Gentle Day Cream and the Gentle Night Cream
for years. I could never use anything else.
The two things I can't live without.

Broke out in rash
I had heard great things about Clarins products via Pinterest, so I ordered a moisturizer and and cleanser. After two days of use I broke out into a horrible rash. Super perfumy and not great for sensitive skin

Not great for my skin
I bought this item because I read online that it would be soothing to rosacea. Although the quality of the product is clearly very high, I couldn't figure out why my face would actually become redder after use. It turns out that the product has wheat in it, and my rosacea symptoms are aggravated by gluten. I wanted to add this review in case anyone else is in a similar circumstance and hadn't noticed the ingredients.
Since then I have gone on to try some other wheat-free Clarins products and have been really pleased with the results. Most of their products do not contain harsh chemicals or fragrances, so they do not irritate my skin even if they aren't strictly for sensitive skin. Clarins ingredients are posted alongside all of their products, so it is easy to avoid gluten.
