Had read the earlier reviews and can only comment that this product is designed for menopausal & MATURE skin! A few of the poor reviews of this product are by women in their early-to-mid 20's so its really not surprising they did not get the results they expected. The Murad range does contain products appropriate for younger skin and with very different formulations/ingredients. A quick glance of the major Ingredients in this product, let alone the PR/Sales pitch shows why us 'oldies' find this product range amazing: This is a high-end blend of Glycolic Acid, the 'holy grail' for gentle yet highly effective exfoliation (essential for mature/sun-damaged skin) its great for treating scarring, skin discolouration, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles. It works by gently reducing the visibility of scars by penetrating the outermost layer of the skin, then weakening the 'glue' holding the dead, damaged, skin cells of the scar tissue together, lastly it has been proven to reduce the red discoloration of scar tissue. By removing the outermost layer of sebum and dead skin cells from the skin, pores are free of blockages and spots/pimples do not form. This product also contains Beta-Carotene. This is added to skincare formulations because of its high anti-oxidant properties, its ability to convert from Beta Carotene into a retinol form of vitamin A. Vitamin A stimulates collagen fibroblasts, the cells responsible for developing firm and healthy tissue in the deeper layers of your skin. The retinol form of vitamin A is vital for cell re-generation, it protects against UVA-light induced damage, thereby minimising sun-induced dark spots, freckles, fine lines and wrinkles. Also blended with concentrated plant, fruit and flower extracts, all known for their theraputic, healing antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Use all Murad products sparingly! Just a little of this product goes a long way. My Tip's - Try to get a free mini murad facial at your local department store ... often the beautician will give you free samples of the products she's used. Always try out the MuraD testers/samples before buying the full-size products.
