          I use this product after I wipe my makeup off and before I use cleanser. I have noticed a significant change in my skin. I'm 31 and had acne come back with a vengeance. I was able to go grocery shopping without makeup last week for the first time l, ever. I purchased this again and will continue to use it.
          It's gentle enough that it doesn't dry out my skin but effective enough to loosen up the oil on my skin so my cleanser can work effectively.

                  I bought this product for my boyfriend after it was recommended for him at Ulta. He has extremely sensitive skin and struggles to find products that consistently work for him. After one use, he couldn't get over how wonderful it made it skin feel and I have to agree - his skin looks awesome! It's so smooth and his skin tone looks more even and less oily. I've used it myself and I would say the same. This is a great product! We are very pleased!!

                        A:

                        Skin Smoothing Polish will exfoliate and help the whitehead come to the surface however it does not have acne medication in it. To help eliminate whiteheads we recommend Clarifying Mask, Item #: 2082346, or Acne Clearing Solution, Item #: 2275277.

                        A:

                        It depends on how sensitive your skin is; it is a mechanical exfoliation and if you massage it too vigorously into the skin it can be over stimulating. Another option might be Murad's Transforming Powder. Item #: 2278741
                        This has a very gentle mechanical exfoliation and relies on enzymes as well. Enzymes are one of the most gentle options for exfoliating.

                      I didn't see a moisturizer paired with this product, may I use the collagen moisturizer since I have normal/ oily skin regularly. But after the shower and in the winter I am dry, usually I don't need a moisturizer but I should use one, and a collagen would be benifical :)

                        You may use your favorite moisturizer after using this product. Dr. Murad believes the key to ant-aging is hydration and recommends you use a moisturizer morning and night every day. For times when you need less hydration use a light weight moisturizer with an SPF daily. For times when you are drier we recommend Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture. http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod2390225

                        This product is great for drier skin, especially if it can be on the flaky side. I recommend using it once a week to start. It contains ingredients that will help keep the skin soft and hydrated like Starflower Extract.

                        Skin Smoothing Polish contains micro-polishing jojoba beads to deeply exfoliate the skin. Those with very sensitive skin and rosacea might find the highly mechanical exfoliation to be a bit stronger than they desire. I would recommend Transforming Powder http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod11161035 for someone with sensitive skin. It also contains jojoba beads for exfoliation however they are a much milder formulation.
