I am a 46 year-old woman, with a very light complextion who has taken care of her skin with high-end products for almost 15 years. I have very dry, sensitive skin - no acne. I was sent a sample of this and used it for a little over a week. This cream literally rebuilt my skin. My skin tone became lighter and even-toned. My pores were almost gone and I seemed to have the skin of a 20-year old - very supple (although it did not 'lift' the skin). There is a 'catch' if you decide to use this moisturizer. The package says, '...apply on face and neck by itself or over any emerginC serum.' Take this statement seriously and do not use ANYTHING else or it will competely take away the benefit of this product. I used a gentle cleanser with no extras and this product worked great. I used another cleanser with extra conditioning, etc... and my skin did not look nice with this product. At another point, I dabbed a little olive oil on top of this product and my skin looked sallow. On another evening, I applied Moisture Surge from Clinique and I woke up with my skin looking sallow. You simply CANNOT use anything outside of this product line. By itself, it is GREAT!!!!! The only problem is, I have very dry skin and you do need extra moisture. Also, it didn't really 'lift' my skin, so I think that I would buy this again using the whole product line and definitely include something with a peptide in it.
