Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracles Happen This is the one and only product I will continue recommending without hesitation to people of all ages and with various skin care concerns. Every one who has asked and tried it, either sent a note or spoken to me about the miraculous results. My own personal experience with the Repair Balm proves consistently there is a 'miracle skin care product' and its value justifies the expense. I have used it for all kinds of issues and always see successful results. Finally, a little goes a long way. Do not be daunted or let the cost stop you from purchasing the Phormula 3-9 Repair Balm. Once you experience the miracles from this product, you'll understand why many people feel its value goes beyond any price tag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healing Phormula Thank you, Erno Laszlo! I have been using Erno Laszlo products for over thirty years. I was first introduced to the products when I was pregnant with my son and was having a lot of problems due to hormone changes.At that time, my skin was prone to breakouts. Now, it is a very different scenario! I am now a grandmother with extremely dry skin and Phormula 3-9 has become part of my beauty routine to keep dry skin and rosacea to a minimum. It is so effective in minimizing redness and irritation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can\'t go a day without 3-9 My skin was so dry it would hurt and pull. I have tried so many creams and potions since my teens and nothing ever really worked until a few months ago when I tried the 3-9 Phormulas. My skin is now soft to the touch, my wrinkles are much less noticeable and my redness is much better. Friends ask me all the time what I\'ve had done. I won\'t start my day without my EL ritual and finishing up with 3-9 Repair Serum and 3-9 Balm. Thank you EL!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth skin !!! I am new to this product, but I can say in the very short time I've used it, I have noticed a change in the texture of my skin. My skin is sensitive, with oily parts, dry spots and enlarged pores on my nose that I dislike immensely. I have been hard pressed to find one product to address all those issues. The literature said that this cream was healing. Certainly, knowing that Marilyn Monroe adored this product got me curious as well, but the product delivers. Can't wait to see what happens with time? I'll keep you posted!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE I love Love LOVE 3-9 ! It is great, it is very effective and I feel it doesn't have any bad smelling or chemical additives. So, what I mean is I believe in the purity of the ingredients. My only complaint I s how much it's gone up in Price :(! Before the company moved to strictly online I used to buy this product at Saks fifth Avenue department store in LA and NYC, but the price seems to have gone way up online. What is that all about?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing Else LIke It!! I use this as my moisturizer - only this - and my skin is well-hydrated, even-toned, and has minimal lines. I inherited great genes from my German mother, but I think of 3-9 as protecting them. Yes, it is on the pricey side, but a jar lasts months and you will not need other products unless you have special concerns. Have used Laszlo since 1976 and will never use anything else!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'M ADDICTED TO THIS PRODUCT! I've been using Erno Laszlo for over 10 years now. Aside from following my daily Laszlo regime religiously I have always incorporated 3-9 into my treatment plan. To me, this product is miraculous. I suffer from dry skin and 3-9 has basically eradicated that condition. In addition, it is also an amazing healing balm for skin irritations. If I had to pick my favorite beauty product, it would definitely be 3-9!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review Title * Little short of miraculous. Just started using it as an occasional night cream and the difference in my skin the following day when I have used it is startling. The little lines around my eyes are GONE. No eye cream or deep wrinkle cream ever managed that.

I have a lot of redness due to rosacea, would this be a good product to help reduce facial redness? Thanks!

Asked by: Sean
By far this product is my favorite. In my experience it doesn’t eliminate rosacea but helps to keep it at bay. Hopefully my answers helps.

When do you put this cream on? Can it go on under my make up or should I only use it at night? I’m trying to decide when to apply this. Thank you!

Asked by: Anonymous
I use it as a primary moisturize morning and night. Works well under makeup and a little (pea size or less) goes a long way.

Does the product have any firming effects, I know it is hydrating

No, this product is meant for healing scars or other damage, and helping repair skin. For firming products, check out the Firmarine line.

What’s the difference between the 3-9 cream and balm!

Asked by: Jillpill
The balm is much richer which I like.  The cream is for people who do not need so much richness.   Maybe people with oiler skin will like the cream best.

What is the difference between the balm and the cream?  Which one is richer.....please let me know as I would like to place the order by to,orros

Asked by: Ladydi
The balm is truly richer. If my skin is at all chapped or unhappy, the cream stings when I apply it. The balm is my "wonder cream." I dab it around and let it heat up on my skin, then spread it - "more" is just more, not better. If I had to use only 1 product ever, it would be the balm.
