Rated 5 out of 5 by TonyinAZ THREE WORDS: RESULTS! POWERFUL! SUPERSIZE!
I'm almost 50 and do not look anything near that, I'm told, and I have to say so myself! I can't chalk it all up to this product (I stay out of the sun as I have sensitivities to SPFs, and try to stay super hydrated from the inside, and I have good genes). However, I definitely have acne-prone big-pore-in-T-zone skin that is developing some fine lines and the famous "11" lines between the brows). I've been using this product sort of on-and-off for years as the budget allows. It gives me some breakouts from deep down within a few days' use but that settles down (especially when using in combination with great cleansing routine (Philosophy's Purity cleanser with a Clarisonic unit and deep pore brush, Philosphy Microdelivery exfoliating cleanser, Miracle Worker moisturizer, Hope in a Tube, and argan oil (*not* Josie's, sorry - too expensive - I have found another product that works exactly as well as hers - not made of money!) I usually will not purchase ANY beauty product that isn't supersized and if it's DUO or a TRIO, well...I say, all the better! Yeah, so that's a lot of product - but in the past I did ONLY use this product and I know it works from that experience as well. BIG MONEY SAVING TIP to make your jar last longer: Don't pour the solution over the pads and throw the bottle away. KEEP THEM SEPARATE and just pour a little on each pad every use. You will find your product lasts FOREVER seemingly and you get more product one each pad, so they aren't as dried out as when you pour the bottle contents in the pad jar! I learned that the hard way years and years and years ago. I can't afford Botox or fillers so I'm placing all my hopes and beauty dreams in (mostly) Philosophy's products, especially when I see a great value (read: SUPERSIZED DUO/TRIO on lots of easy pays and free to little shipping and handling fees). I recommend using the product right up until you can return it before deciding whether or not it's going to work for you, as it does take a little while to start seeing results, but you WILL see them. And, that's what matters! I use this morning (after cleansing, before serums and moisturizers, under foundation), and night - after using my Clarisonic morning and night. Things are definitely looking better already after having to stop using it for a while due to budgetary constraints, and so YES IT WORKS. Sensitive skin people may have problems. I am sensitive in that I break out first before things calm down. But I also don't go in the sun and... My skin is combination, oily in Tzone and regular on cheeks. Remember to go down your neck and back to your ears and decollete' and backs of hands, even if you have to use 2 pads to do all that...what's the point of keeping your face young looking if everything else is giving you away? WOULD BE A GREAT GIFT FOR ANYONE CLOSE ENOUGH TO YOU TO GIVE SUCH A PRODUCT....(MOM, BFF, SISTER, ETC....UM, FELLAS, NOT YOUR WIFE UNLESS SHE ASKS FOR IT, LOL!)

I am a 51 year old with great skin . Never had break out or flakiness. My face itched so badly and felt so tight . Sorry but has to go

I have some hyper pigmentation on my face due to getting too much sun, and this product lightened it up significantly! My pores have also improved.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DianeG I use this every night without fail!
I've been using this product nightly for over two years now and at 49, my skin still looks very good. I do NOT look my age. I avoid the sun, use sunblock, don't smoke and at night I cleanse/remove my makeup, then I use a retinoid pad on my face and neck/chest which has a rougher side (for exfoliation) and a smooth side, and then I apply the miracle worker moisturizer and go to bed confident I did something amazing for my skin. I wake up looking a million times better than if I were to just use some regular moisturizer and that is it... I KNOW that these two products have majorly helped slow the aging process of my skin.

I have used the retrinoidpad and solution for several years. It has soften the wrinkles in my skin which makes for a more youthful look. Recently, another lady commented on my skin and told me that my skin looked soft and supple. That tells me that the product is working when others notice. I would recommend this product to other ladies
I recently put this product on auto delivery because I do not want to be without..
Rated 5 out of 5 by Scarlett1939 Great product
I would not be without this product. I use it every night as part of my skin care regime.
It cleanses your skin and you get the benefit of retinoid. There is no fragrance. The pads are easy to use and you just throw them away after use. I am over 60 and I think that this product has helped keep my skin in good shape.
Rated 5 out of 5 by chitty Very, very satisfied
I have been using this product for a few years. I love what it has done for my 74 years skin. It has made my skin more smooth, less wrinkles than one experiences with being in their 70's, illuminates the skin--no more dull and tired looking skin. I saw instant results, but, of course, it took a tad longer to really see an all over change in texture & my few larger pores becoming smaller. I would apply the pads every night in the beginning, but now I use every other night. I am still working and my co-workers are amazed on how I appear to be younger than my real age. They even have taken a poll and arrived at an 'appearance age' of between 50 and 55. That's good. Every bit helps in the competitive work world. My doctors are even amazed. The application pads are product generous so I apply onto my arms, hands, the sides and back of my neck, chest area. Any place where it will help. I highly suggest trying this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bohorae Great Results
I have awesome skin after years of using Philosophy, and Dr Denese products. The one area that has been somewhat resistant are the small lines above my upper lip-(although not too bad, I could not imagine what it what I have looked like if I had not used these products). I wanted more-so I tried this product focusing above my lip. In just a couple of weeks I am noticing a difference. I use it twice a day, immediately after cleansing with Purity, then using Dr Denese's Firming Facial pads. I am very pleased with the result. I am using a cotton ball, since I am only using a small amount-so this should last a long time. Once a week I use it all over my face.
