This product is fantastic (my skin looks more radiant, brighter, even-toned, smaller pores). I switched to the III after using the II (didn't feel the II was strong enough for me but my skin tolerates acids well). My facialist even marveled ("your skin looks gorgeous, small pores") at how my skin looked after using this (she used to assist plastic surgeons and is well versed with lasers). Only negative is that when it's a windy, cold day (I live in NYC), my skin does not tolerate this III well and stings when I put it on. I just alternate my other cleansers (beloved Clarins foaming or my DHC Deep Cleansing Oil) around the MD Forte.

M.D. Forte is distributed by Allergan, a global specialty pharmaceutical company. One of Allergan's famous products is BOTOX. I personally am relieved that this product line has most of it's development money spent on research and product development (instead of marketing).

I am Korean, have combination skin (prone to plugged pores & occasional breakouts), 42 yrs old but most think I'm 28-32. My skin care products have to be effective b/c I've refused my whole life to wear skin make-up (foundation in any form). People say my skin is like porcelain but it has good and bad days like everyone else. I use: DHC, Natura Bisse, Jurlique, MD Forte, Clarins.
