This product works! -5/14/2010 6:46:36 PM I tend to have extremly oily skin and have found that this product has greatly reduced the amount of times that I must blot my face throughout the day. It works much better for me than the original version. After applyiing you should allow 8-10 minutes for the product to dry or it can "flake" or begin to peel off like a mask.

It is more than a good primer -3/19/2010 4:11:26 AM This product is an effective combination of salicylic acid, vitamins and retinol. And it has right pH, so it does not only claim but also works. I used it under my make-up in winter every day. For those who have oily, acne-prone skin this may be a very good solution bacause this primer is all-in-one - you prevent new breakouts, remove gently light scars and care with antiox. It takes 5-10 min to absorb, and you will of course need a good SPF over it (because of acids in the list). So now i prefer to use it 2-3 times a week over night. I do not peel(maybe because I am used to higher concentrations), but my skin is being gradually renewed and looks healthier with this lotion.

Really great product -12/14/2009 7:11:03 AM I have used this product off and on for over a year and really like it. I think it's a great price, and since you only need a little bit each time, it lasts quite a while. I do not like using it under makeup, because I don't have the time to let it absorb for 10-15 minutes--and if you apply moisturizer and make up over it, you'll notice little beads of product emerge on your face. Not attractive! BUT, I really enjoy using it as a night-time treatment. It contains chemical exfoliants, so using it daily can be harsh, but I like to use it maybe twice per week. I really see a difference in the clarity and texture of my skin. I feel like I "glow" more and have a more fresh and radiant appearance. I am not sure if it helps fine lines because I haven't paid much attention to that. I have sensitive, combination skin that's dry in the winter and oily in the summer. People with less sensitive or oiler skin might be able to use this product more often than I do. If you have consistently dry skin, I would use it once a week max, or a couple of times per week under a good moisturizer. Again, my recommendation is to use it as a night treatment.
