    I used this in the past and after trying several of the newer products I have returned to a tried and true basic. My skin looks great again and certainly does not betray the fact that I just turned 60! I love this product!

          This has helped reduce my fine lines. It doesn't make my face red like some other retinol creams. I use it every night.

            I use it every night before bed. It has really helped lighten my acne scars, and get out some blackheads. It doesn't dry out my skin like other retinol products I've used.

                  Comments about Philosophy Help Me Retinol Night Treatment:

                  I was skeptical about this product, but the reviews I saw mentioned that it was great for large pores and acne. I have been super fortunate (read not at all) to be blessed with a genetic predisposition for large pores on and around my nose. Nothing else that I've ever tried helped at all. After using this product consistently for two weeks, there was a noticeable difference, and I couldn't be happier. I've also had issues with blemishes since middle school. My acne isn't severe, but it is noticeable, and it does make me uncomfortable with my appearance. With this, I was comfortable going completely without makeup, which for me, is truly saying something.

                  How to use: After cleansing my face, I take a pea-sized amount of this and dot it on cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin so that it spreads a little more evenly (it absorbs very quickly). Then I follow it with whatever night cream I happen to be using (currently a generic of an Olay night cream that I got at the grocery store). And that's pretty much it...super complicated, I know. I only use it at night, and I use a moisturizer with SPF 30 in the morning.

                    Comments about Philosophy Help Me Retinol Night Treatment:

                    Didn't work for me. I read all the great reviews and had such high hopes. But I didn't notice one single change in my skin after two weeks of use. I don't know if these are paid reviews or what, but don't fall for it like I did.
                    The one pro I can say, it does not irritate sensitive skin.
