Dr. Denese Super-size Pro C Cell Defense Pads, 100 ct.
I like to try a lot of skin care products, and decided to give these a try about eight months ago, along with Dr. Denese's Advanced Firming Facial pads. I most often alternate these two, using the C pads in the mornings ,and the Advanced facial pads at night. What a wonderful combination! I originally bought the two as a set on QVC.com, but this duo is no longer offered as a set! Dr. Denese, please consider doing so again! I am in my mid-forties, and have very fair skin with some sun damage on my forehead and a few darker marks of hyperpigmentation on my cheeks. I really like that one of my brown spots is barely noticeable now and my sun damage is greatly reduced. Along with using a great cleanser, plus regular exfoliation, these pads have become a tried and true re-order purchase for me. I would recommend giving them a try.
I have used Dr. Denese products and have loved many, these however I saw no difference in my skin at all. I have used the facial firming pads and loved them, did see a difference. Felt like I wasted my money on these.
BEST FOR ME
I have been using this product for more than 5 years and truly believe itis good for
me and I'm told my complextion looks great.....I use is every morning
Many thanks to Dr. Denese for such a great product...
Love Love Love
I just ordered my second jar of this product. I am 65 and have always had difficult skin. At 65, my skin is drier than it has ever been, and like other posters before me, I have always been searching for that one "Eureka" product. This is it for me. I no longer need to use a moisturizer and my morning routine now consists of using only this product. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated and fresh.
Did Nothing that I can see
"Illuminating" and "Brightening"? Really?
Not for me. These pads did nothing for my skin that I could see.
There was no obvious visible improvment.
I've been using these pads since June. This is now September, so I've used up about 1/2 the jar. That's a long enough "trial" period to decide I will not repurchase.
Nothing remarkable happened to my skin. The discoloration I had on my face is still there.
At this point, I am unclear as to exactly what this product was "supposed" to do.
For me, it was like using an astringent.
I will use up the remaining pads and move on.
Brightening and Refreshing!
These Pro C pads are a very quick way to brighten your morning and complexion! They immediately awaken tired skin, and they give you a glow! I notice an immediate radiance in my skin after each morning application! I recommend these pads highly for anyone who is trying to keep their aging skin healthy and radiant!
Great for aging skin
I LOVE this product! Use it every morning after my Purity face wash.
I'm over 50 and feel like Dr D's products are the best value for my age group.
Try these pads it will make a difference in your skin texture.
feels good and IS good for me!
This is my 2nd purchase of Pro C Illuminating Cell Defense. I really like that it protects my skin with vitamins and has a good amount of Vitamin C. I also like that it has hylauronic acid Along with the Light Resurfacing Peel, it is my favorite Dr. Denese product.
Not an first day or even first 5 days visible results in my case. But I continued to use them and not skip an AM. By mid week 2 I really was seeing some evening out of my skin. I have med/light completion with freckles since I was a kid and am naturally blond. So I have 'that' kind of skin that needs sun, but I don't get it for the last 30 yrs. This product now after using it for 1.5 months, is giving me a really nice purity to my skin - an inner radiance that is not golden from the sun, but still like the sun kissed me from within. It just looks like I have more healthy skin. I did not expect visible results but was using it for the free radical protection. I did have to adjust my skin care time to allow the 60 seconds or so for this to dry. I find now that I AM cleanse, apply this and go take my face towel to the wash room hamper, or get my coffee - something - just minor change to my routine, then back to the bathroom for the rest of my AM skin care routine. That's the only thing I do warn folks - you need to allow this to dry and not fanning it or putting the hair dryer on your face - it needs it's time to process into the skin. Each pad is very saturated. I still use a full pad and bring it down to my decollete, and onto the back of my hands and up on my forearms too until I have used it all up.
Really like these VitaminC pads....
I have used her original pads for a long time...was so happy to see these make their debut ! I use them full face, over and under eyes with no problems. Plus use them on my chest, neck and hands...You get a lot for the $$$. I will repurchase these. My skin feels super smooth and ready for serums after it dries for a minute !!
Took some getting used to....
however, now I love these pads. I have very sensitive skin and am 63 years old. At first these were very drying. So I backed off for a week, then started using every other day. Same problem. So then I got the bright idea of cutting the pads in half! Then this worked beautifully! My skin is much brighter and more luminous -- something I didn't think could happen. I love Dr. Denese's products. Every once in a while I'll try something else just because I'm a skin-care junkie yet I always come back because for me this is the best product line. Also, cutting the pads in half means a big savings in money too because they obviously last twice as long! So I also started to cut the Advanced Firming Facial Pads in half as well. Still plenty of solution in a half pad to cover my face and the back of my hands! Just a couple of tips the rest of you might want to try if you have trouble with either one of these products or if you simply like to save money! :)
Best skincare product EVER
I am 57 and tried numerous brands, concoctions, etc., to try and keep my skin in the best shape possible. I have to say I was skeptical when I rec'd this (part of a kit) but decided to try it. When I read the suggestion of using the left over pad for the backs of your hands and forearms and tried it I was truly amazed at the difference in the brightness, youthfulness and even many hours later WITHOUT lotion the tops of my hands and forearms glow and are soft and smooth. Needless to say it's done wonders for my face - - several dark spots that I've spent hundreds of dollars trying to reverse haven't even come close to the results I am getting with Dr. Denese. I am sold. I have used this for 3 months and will be back for more!!!! If I could only afford one thing for my face this would be it!
