Note: I never tried the original ANR Protective Recovery Complex so I wouldn't know how this reformulated and renamed product compares... I love this stuff! Although I've been told by many I look young for my age, I'd recently been obsessing over the single fine lines that had appeared right under my eyes as well as my skin's increasing lack of youthful glow, so I went through 2 bottles of Skinceuticals' .5% retinol treatment, 1 bottle of Skinceuticals 1.0% retinol, and 3-4 bottles of DDF's C3 Plus serum as well as trying and returning various other anti-aging/retinoid products in an attempt to remedy the aging process... I've been using this product for a little over 2 weeks and I've been noticing that the fine lines have seriously diminished, my face looks more luminous (not quite the youthful glow you see on high school/college age girls but getting there) and my skin looks more even-toned to the point where I've considered leaving the house with only sunscreen and a light dusting of powder rather than my usual light foundation... I'm not crazy about the price but this seriously works. I will definitely keep using this again (and again and again). I'm so impressed with the results that I'm considering buying this for my mom, my sister and my bro-in-law!I know it is this product that is working because it is the only thing I've added to my skincare regimen (and my skincare regimen has stayed the same with no new skincare products for almost a year). I only apply this at night: first I double-cleanse (usually any cheap japanese drugstore brand oil-cleanser + clean & clear sensitive skin cleanser), then apply a light layer of MAMA lotion, and then apply a nickel-sized amount of the ANR to my face (including eye area) and neck. Even my neck area looks better!!Since I have combo skin, in these humid months, the serum is enough; when it's less humid, I do apply a lightweight moisturizer on top as needed. I'm sure when winter comes around, I'll definitely need something heavier on top of this...
