I bought this years ago, and stopped using it after I went on Obagi Nu-Derm.
What I've been using it for lately is a base for a micropeel. I had some Philosopy crystals left over when I'd used up the activator that came with the kit.
This product works just as well with the crystals if not better. It works with moistened berry sugar too. Gently distribute the crystals on your face, and then add enough Glyco 8 to make it nice and slippery. Very gently massage for half a minute or so. No pressure or rubbing hard! Leave it on for another 5 or 10 minutes before you rinse it off.
Nice, smooth exfoliated skin.

I have been using this moisturizer for over a year and I love it! I started using it after reviewing many hours on whats the best thing for preventing fine lines and wrinkles in mid 20's. I came across Pharmagels and have been using ever since (previously used Murad energizing pomegranate, nice but not HG) This product absorbs beautifully and is moisturizing enough for cold Michigan winters. Also has an SPF 8, which is better than nothing (I use Paula Dorf's tinted moisture SPF 15 over, great combo!)

This is a Facial Firming Complex of moisturizing, facial firming and AHA's per product label. Another website says there is Retinol-A in it. Their website doesn't list the ingredients. It is to be worn morning and night.
In the morning my face feels plumper. It never breaks me out. A friend of mine who has the beauty supply card took me with her to purchase it, so I got it on sale for $24. She had oily skin with breakouts and her skin looks great since she uses this. She said, "this is the only thing I use and I never get breakouts from it."
I only wish the ingredients weren't so mysterious. I had been using the Neutrogena Dermatolique Retinol-A but that made me break out occassionally. So I am kind of iffy on recommending it. But the fact is, it makes my skin look great, and it doesn't break me out.
Science Project: I put a dab of product on a paper bag and waited 24 hours to see if product was really oil free by observation of oil residue. This product had no oil residue.
