I had gone to get my eyebrows threaded I had a breakout around forehead area shortly after. I had tried everything to get rid of the scars from the breakout and nothing worked except for this amazing lotion. Have been using it for about a week and have already obtained amazing results. If you have acne scars, this is most definitely do the trick.

1. It is very pricey in Europe.2. It stinks and irritates my sensitive skin3. It is too much liquid and watery, so it doesnt sits on the skin, also not water resistant. 4. It is very small tube and it finishes too fast because of liquidity. I dont think it can cover and protect the ski from sun properly.Only think I like about this product is it is not comedogenic (didnt make acne on my very acneic skin) and its color is exactly my skin color.Also I totally agree to this comment completely: This product is Garbage. Honestly, just don't bother. It goes on patchy so the protection is probably compromised. It doesn't layer over itself well. It cakes up and separates. It pills on top of moisturizer. It cakes up foundation. Settles into lines. The protection just isn't there (I burned twice with this WHILE reapplying it. WHy? Its not water resistant in the least. If you sweat a little it comes off. If you rub your nose? It comes off. I you lay your face on your hand momentarily? It fades. God I hate it XD Also if you have sensitized skin, this BURNS. Not good for post procedures.The only good things it has going for it are that its non comedogenic, and its thin (not thick and greasy like baby sunscreen). The performance and look are terrible though. Will not repurchase.I'm very dissapointed with this sunblock. First off, adherence is not great. It dissapears from my nose and chin in no time, and it travels and settles in the finelines around my eyes, nose and chin. It's not water resistant AT ALL. I had reapplied the susncreen 4 times in an hour or two. It has a watery consistency, very very liquid. Liquid makeup does not fare well on top. It cakes up and separates. I didn't experience breakouts while using it, thankfully.I will not repurchase, and can only reccomend it for women with light skintones, around NC 15-25 who don't wear a lot of makeup (because the tint will match your skin) as a city sunblock. Not good for working out or anything involving sweat/water.

I will buy it again, it is expensive but you don´t need to use much.I use this for my acne, I was able to see a difference in a matter of days, I am very happy with having almost zero redness and a better skin tone, but the things that blows away is the texture, i had lost of "holes" in my face from having very strong chicken pox and I always assumed things would be like that since you can´t "grow" a new skin, turns out I was wrong because the texture is much smother now.Acording to the product it also has anti-aging components if that is something you are looking for that.Overall, it is a must have.

I didn't like this, in comparison to other Neostrata products I've used. Probably easiest if I compare this directly with the Neostrata Ultra Moisturising Cream (UMC), because they are similar in terms of their active ingredients:Results:UMC has 10% gluconolactone and vitamin E. Renewal Cream has 12% gluconolactone plus pro-retinol and vitamin E. Honestly I didn't think the Renewal produced any different results, even though it has 2% more exfoliant plus "pro-retinol" (they use the gentlest Vit A derivative). There was no noticeable benefit in any aspect of my skin for the Renewal Cream, even though it's pricier. I don't think it's worth it; would be more worthwhile using a separate retinol product.Moisture/hydration:Gluconolactone is a humectant (water-binding), so I expected the Renewal Cream to work just as well as the UMC in terms of hydration. In fact it was worse. The Renewal Cream was much greasier in texture and didn't feel like it fully sank in. Both products use plant oils....the Renewal Cream uses meadowfoam and peanut oil, and the UMC uses macadamia and evening primrose. Therefore I think the oil base of the Renewal Cream just isn't as richly moisturising as the UMC, even though the texture is still on the greasy side somehow.Scent:The Renewal Cream smells disgusting. Overly sweet, chemical flowers, with a powdery aspect. Despite the unisex packaging, this is clearly a feminine scent only. In contrast the UMC has no fragrance and thus smells like any generic cream, though a little acidic. After 2-3 months, it became too hard to continue using this on my face, because it really was such an unpleasant smell.Overall:This product didn't work for me. I've always found the various basic, frag-free exfoliants from Neostrata to be very good and reliable, without irritation. However all of their 'extra' products that promise 'additional' benefits have never impressed me, because I've never seen results above-and-beyond what their regular/standard products do. That's what this Renewal Cream is to me - same results as their other products, only with a bad texture and vile scent.

Unfortunately this product did not help me with my redness. It gave me little bumps on my cheek too. I didn't feel hydrated after it . I would say I have sensitive skin but not typically dehydrated.
