    Comments about Philosophy Help Me:

    I was definitely skeptical of trying this product, especially with the hefty price for such a small tube of cream. I used to be prescribed retinol cream & oral anti-biotics in high school for my severe acne. Of course the prescriptions made my face turn red and peel off completely but my acne disappeared. As I grew older, my acne became more manageable and I no longer needed the Rx, until recently. Instead of going back to my dermatologist, I tried other over-the-counter acne kits from drug stores and Ulta that used Hydroxy Acid or Salicylic Acid as the active acne fighting ingredient. Even after finishing the entire kits, none of them worked and just made my skin produce more oil to combat the acid treatments. So I caved and bought Philosophy Help Me night treatment. The results are AMAZING and worth every penny! In one use my face finally felt clean, my pores minimized and blemishes reduced. I hadn't seen these results since my Rx days. I did not experience any adverse reactions such as peeling or redness from the product. I must have built up some tough skin while using stronger retinol prescription products in the past. I've been using the product for 2 weeks now day & night and rarely get a blemish and my oil skin has calmed. I do recommend using a daily SPF moisturizer or sun screen when exposed to sunlight for long hours. Your face will burn extremely easy from using this product.

        I have been using this product in conjunction with the Purity cleanser and Hope In a Jar moisturizer. I honestly don't know if it's this product or the combination of the 3, but my skin has improved tremendously since I started using Philosophy! I love these products!

        Comments about Philosophy Help Me:

        This does wonders on blemishes and spots from blemishes. I'm so pale I'm practically see-through so whenever I get a pimple, I have a red mark for sometimes 6 months after it's gone. Within 2 days spots were significantly less noticeable. This stuff works great but I noticed that if I stop using it, the spots come back. Haven't noticed much difference in my large pores.

          I've been using this product for a while. I usually use 3-4 times a week. everyday will leave me a little dry but I think it helps even out skin tone and manage fine lines/wrinkles

          Comments about Philosophy Help Me:

          I bought this because I wanted a product to help my acne while not making me super dry and flaky. Other products have increased my fine lines and wrinkles. This product smoothed my skin and helped with lines a bit, but not enough for me to buy it again, plus my acne got worse. Disappointed because I wanted it to work for me.

            I use this product every night before applying Philosophy the Miracle Worker moisturizer. I feel like I am taking good care of my skin while using this product. My skin is not sensitive, so I haven't experienced any side effects (redness, irritation, etc.). Highly recommend!♥

              Comments about Philosophy Help Me:

              I've spent months researching reitnol products...which ones work, which ones dont, which ones burn your face off...
              I have some fine lines under my eyes and around them but mainly my interest in retinol was for my acne. I have mild adult acne and every now and then one of my pores clogs up and stays that way...for weeks, sometimes months...NOTHING WORKS! It just so happens I had one of these pesky painful pimples when I got this product in the mail. I went about my usual routine adding it in. It was nice, absorbed well,smoothed my skin no big deal right? By the end of the next night...that giant deep pimple id had for months had...disappeared. As for the asnti aging effects...we will see but for me the fact that its done what nothing else could with my clogged pores is enough for me. Bravo.

              Comments about Philosophy Help Me:

              I normally don't write reviews, but this product is wonderful. My mom is a dermatologist and suggested using retinol products for my mild acne (a few bumps every month). This worked wonderfully. I have no more redness and no more bumps....at all. I use it every night with a pea sized drop put across my cheeks and forehead. I love that it isn't greasy and softens my skin. The only thing I don't like is the smell, but I can deal with it for the benefits of the product.
