I ordered the introductory kit which contains the cleanser, the a.m. cream, the p.m. cream and 2 bonuses. I am 31 years old which oily skin with constant acne on my face. This is the BEST thing I have ever used. It keeps the acne in check and also helps with aging. I have used EVERY THING and do mean every thing out there, and nothing has worked like this. Sometimes when skin care lines are for anti-aging people with acne often think "oh, that's going to make me break out" because usually anti-aging skin care lines are richer and contain more pore clogging ingredients, but this is NOT the case here. The cleanser takes off every smidge of makeup, you feel clean but not tight - and a little bit goes a long way. The a.m. cream is fabulous and it contains glycolic acid in there so the dead skin is constantly being sloughed off, which helps keep acne under control. Your complexion ends up looking brighter and more even toned. I noticed this in 2 weeks of using the products. Also the day cream has SPF 15 in there - perfect!!! The p.m. cream contains the Retinol, and I did not experience any irritation or burning. I have been using this product for over 4 weeks and I see improvements in my skin, such as: acne gone, pores smaller, brighter complexion, more even toned, lines on forehead starting to fade. It is highly unusual for me to stick with skin care products because I just love to try every thing because I am on a quest for a miracle.....but my search is over, I am sticking with Natural Advantage forever. The price is so reasonable and it WORKS!!! I know that there are other products out there that have newer technology or have ingredients that are all the buzz right now, but these 3 ingredients (sunscreen, glycolic acid and Retinol) have been tested and are clinically proven to improve the look of your skin. There's years of research behind these ingredients and that's why it works. Seriously get this stuff!!!! Now....go....what are you waiting for?!!

This is an excellent product line because of the fact that there is continual exfoliation occurring with the AHA's in the cleanser and day cream and the Retinol in the night cream.
The constant cell turnover (using the products as directed) causes my skin to become more radiant, firmer, reduces wrinkles, clears up any blemishes and my skin is so soft, it feels like silk. I'm not great at sticking to a routine that includes washing my face and moisturizing 2x a day (laziness), so if I did follow that rule, I would get even better results I'm sure. I have been using Principal Secret's Reclaim skin care line for years, and honestly like the Natural Advantage products better, because of the results I've gotten.
The regimen is simple, doesn't take a long time and really produces smaller pores, in addition to all of the above. At 44, I'm continually mistaken for someone in my mid to late 20's. That is a great testimony to this line!

I have been using this for 3 weeks after a crazy reaction from Babor Hyol and now my face is amazing!! I have adult acne and large pores, this actually reduced the size of my pores after a week! ( I wear alot of foundation my pores aren't seeping out the makeup anymore)
I want to try the eye capsules too, I have tried the peel that came along as a sample and that was great too as a jump start to the system.
I was using Obagi before, and this seemed like a smaller, less invasive version of it. Plus it's not as expensive. I love Obagi but it was too much for a stay at home mom like me. I will continue to use this and repurchase.

I have been using this product for a year and a half now and I haven't had a break-out since then. For the first time in my life I have nice clear skin with a light glow. I am 32 but get mistaken for my early 20's all the time. I will never stop using this product!

I have never been able ro use retin a without redness and peeling until this and I think my crows feet look very improved. No miracles but a good line.

I have been using this for about 6 months. I have normal to slightly dry skin in summer and definitely dry skin in winter. I also had started having some minor acne flare ups here and there before using this. I really like this kit. The cleanser washes makeup off well and the moisturizer is not too light or too heavy but just right for me during summer, though in the winter at bedtime I use a heavier moisturizer over top the nighttime stuff. Everything in the kit lasts a long time as it only takes a small amount. I actually put a dab of the nighttime cream and a dab of the day moisturizer into my palm and mix it together first and then apply it to my face. I no longer get any breakouts at all, my skin looks good and feels good. As one reviewer stated, it's not a miracle performing face care system , my deeper wrinkle at my eyes is still there, but my skin certainly looks like it's in great condition. I wish I had started using it years ago and maybe I wouldn't have these crows feet now!

So far, I'm pretty happy with this. The Daily Cleansing Gel seems pretty average and not necessary to the system, so I probably won't include it in my kit next time. I like the All Day Moisture, seems pretty average too, but kept my skin happy all day so I'll use it. The Nighttime Renewal Complex seems to me like the key product of this line, and I liked it. No noticable results yet but did not burn like I thought it was going to. The kit also came with a sample of Ultimate Hydration, which along with the Nighttime Renewal Complex, is my favorite product and I would like to get a full size. UPDATE: Going on a week with this. They weren't kidding when they said it would dry your face. What I hope they weren't kidding about is that the redness, irritation, and flaking will go away with continued use. I hope they're right, because I don't know how much more of this I can take. Will update. UPDATE: After my skin got very dry with this, it flaked, and that seems to be the ends of the irritation phase. It didn't take that long, but I loaded up with hydrating moisturizers after applying this. There was no way my skin was going to survive that alone. Now, I will start backing those off, and just using this. Will update with the results.

Im 26, i have pretty good skin, darker medium tone, some freckles, unevenness, occassional breakouts, some sun damage but over all decent. I have been using this for two weeks. Used proactive before. Worked well for me but after a yr of use, i didnt see any improvements and skin still breaking out sometimes. Thought to buy something anti acne and anti aging (good to start early eh).
I like this a lot. I have the intro kit. My skin looks clearer, brighter, and more toned. The cleanser is excellent, little goes a long way. The nighttime renewal didnt irritate my skin. I dont continuously use the day time cream, when i do, it seems to light for me and i havnt been using it reguarly. Use my olay instead. I dont think this will cause miracles, but its a very good skin care routine and i def see improvements!

I purchased this product thinking it would be another purchase just wasted. Boy was I wrong. I have used this product for over 6 months and I am loving it. My crows feet and forehead lines have diminished alot. They are hardly visible. I am 38 years old and my customers think that I am in my 20's. I will keep purchasing this skincare line.

The smilie lines on my lower cheeks are almost gone after 3 weeks of using the night time stuff. Do not get this product up by your undereyes, it will actually create the look of deep wrinkles in this delicate area!
I really like the cleanser, and such a tiny amount goes a long long way. This may last me forever! I have tee zone skin and it does the job.
I'm not too crazy about the daily moisturizer. It may be too light for me.

I ended up returning the entire 5-piece kit within a week. (Apologies in advance for not saving the ingredients list to post.) I didn't have any adverse reactions, but I started to miss my regular skincare regime by Day2, and there's nothing worse than not being excited to use a beauty product enough to stick with it. My overall impressions: 1) CLEANSER~this is my favorite. It's a gel-cream consistency that doesn't foam, has a lot of slip...I could get by with just a nickel sized amount for my face & neck, and miraculously it dissolved my Shiseido sunscreen & makeup completely without having to do a second cleansing. Skin feels comfortable and refreshed - no taut dry feeling at all. 2) TONER~this is the first toner I've tried that is a gel versus a liquid. It looks like blue gel toothpaste coming out of the bottle. Surprisingly does not sting or dry my skin out even though alcohol is within the top three ingredients. I feel this would be unecessary because the cleanser does such a great job already. 3) DAY LOTION w/spf15~OUCH!!!! This stung my skin every time I put it on - stinging and itching and it had a horrible ammonia-like smell to it especially if I tried to apply an additional sunscreen on top...it has nice glide to it and good hydration, but the awful smell and stinging made me dread putting it on in the mornings. It has chemicals in it to exfoliate, so it's essential to wear a stronger sunscreen on top especially if spending time outdoors 4) EYE CREAM~I don't think this does anything but hydrate. It didn't give me milia or flaking skin, but I did notice my eyeballs felt gummy in the mornings like the product was too rich. 5) RETINOL NIGHT TREATMENT~very "gentle" for a retinol product. I didn't experience and stinging or irritation with this unlike the day cream. It was really comfortable, but not hydrating enough. I definitely had to supplement a separate moisturizer on top. ~~~~There you have it...if I went back to this system, I would only repurchase the cleanser and night treatment. They're the two products that felt the best to use.

Wow! My first week with this kit has been amazing, and I've never handled any kind of retinoid product well at all in the past. I ordered the larger kit first time out (and I'm dying to try those eye capsules -- will definitely customize to include those next time around), and my first pleasant surprise was the cleanser. It not only cleaned my face better than the Principal Secret cleansers, but it took off eye makeup and didn't burn or irritate my eyes at all. I used the blue-gel toner next which has a cool, tingly feel (but in a good way), and then the PM treatment. I follwed up with the eye cream and then the sample hydration cream. In the AM, I don't bother washing with the cleanser again, but merely use the toner after my shower and then the day moisturizer with SPF 15, followed by a little eye moisturizer. My skin is loving this routine -- it's softer, more supple, more even and the fine lines around my eyes are already noticeably diminished. I bought this on a PMS-driven whim, and I'm really glad I did. Definitely will continue with this product line. Can't wait to try some of the additional products included with the brochure enclosed with the kit.
UPDATE: After a few more weeks of use, I have to ditch the day cream. Still love the cleanser and the retinol treatment, but the day cream is too darned greasy and heavy. I'm back to my usual, lighter day moisturizer and a foundation with SPF15. I also don't think my fair, fine Irish skin is up to both a retinol and a glycolic acid product on a daily basis. The night treatment is not irritating used daily, but the glycolic acid in the day cream is beginning to burn the area around my eyes in the morning. Still time to customize my perfect kit, though.

This is my first week on this kit. Couldn't resist Jane Seymour or the claims the infomercial makes (taking into consideration that they all hype).
I customized my kit and got the full kit instead of the intro kit (I usually dive in head first). First I will say that the products have a very faint but nice scent - a little powdery - which I love. I have combo / oily skin, 47 years old with forehead & eye lines, etc., also broken caps (which I don't expect a skin care line to address much), large pores, blackheads.
My kit included:
Cleanser - not real foaming, feels a little rich but so far I'm liking it.
Toner - this is a blue gel. I really am liking this. Does not burn.
Day Cream with AHA's - nice. Doesn't leave my skin oily but is soft. Like that it has an SPF. No burning or tingling.
Night Cream with Retinol - nice, no burning, etc.
Night Eye Capsules - These little capsules have retinol. It is not burning at all. Each capsule gives me 2 uses. There are 60 in a jar.
Anti-Wrinkle Cream - Supposedly this is a new product to put on your wrinkles day and night. I have not started using this yet because I want to see what the other products do for me first.
All in all, I am very pleased so far. I had previously tried green cream but it burned horribly and couldn't tolerate it.
Will update at a later date to see what, if any results, I am getting.

I purchased this kit on QVC after I saw the informercial. I have been using it for a month and I can honestly say this has shown some promising improvements. I am 31 years old and suffer with adult acne and the Nightime Renewal cream was what interest me the most since I know that retinol is good for acne as well as aging and that is what sold me. I had been using Proactiv before for years and while it helped with controling my breakouts I wanted something anti-aging. I saw results in about 2 weeks! My skintone is now even and glowing. My breakouts haven't completely cleared but it is much improved. I now feel comfortable leaving the house without make-up!! My skin is very oily and I found the products to be fast absorbing and not at all heavy or greasy.
