I use this to help fade my acne scars and I like it, but my skin's more sensitive too so I use it only a few times a week. If you want to be safe, try mixing it with a simple oil-free moisturizer at first until you build a tolerance to it.

YES! Seriously, this product saved my skin. I had terrible cystic acne and once it cleared up it left red scars underneath the skin which is the hardest to get rid of and I also had brown discoloration too, this cleared it all in a month. I use it at night and during the day I use Neutragena intensives anti wrinkle moisturizer, I use it because it has Retin-A and sunscreen which also really helps acne scars and discoloration. Try this combination, you won't regret it.

safe for skin around eyes?
Does anyone know if this can be applied under the eyes like Ole Henrikesen's Pure Perfection? Speaking of which, I can't seem to find anywhere the glycolic acid percentage of pure perfection, anyone know?

I can't answer for sure, but I've been putting it around my eyes and it hasn't hurt them. Just make sure you don't get any in your eye. I sweated it into my eye this morning and the same tingle that happens on your skin turns into a burn when it hits your eye!

Work well with foundation?
How does this work with a primer and liquid foundation on top? I just purchased PTR Clini Matte which does control the oil but does not work well with makeup.

This is pretty thick and sticky, I use it as a night treatment and not as a daily moisturizer. I've never tried it, though, so it may work, but I think it might be too thick for that. I still LOVE this product, though!

I use this in the morning under foundation and it works well for me, but it takes some time to fully absorb. I usually will dry my hair, or make the bed or get dressed or something between this and the foundation. I don't use a primer.

I have not had any problems at all applying make-up over this. It does not have any mattifying effects though, so if you're hoping for that, you might want to use a primer as well.

Question
best for diminishing age spots on skin
I wonder if this is the product recommended by my friend. Price is about right. She said within 2 mos. this product reduced greatly the visibility of brown age spots. Is the glycolic acid 10% moisturizing the one I would want?

I answered the question "can one use the DDF day and night?" prematurely. I did ask a Sephora skin specialist this very question once I restarted my retin-a routine-that's 1% every other night. She said it was too much to use glycolic acid & retinoids together; too irritating for the thin skin of a post-menopausal complexion so I then switched to glycolic acid (DDF) only when not using retinoids. Sorry.

The DDF version of the Glycolic 10% Exfoliating Moisturizer was far superior to the PTR product. After a month of PTR I had no where near the result that 1 week of DDF did. It cleared my congested pores, evened my skin tone, erased my blackheads and gave me an overall refreshed complexion so I had more make-up free days. Worth the extra $.

I normally do not use both gycolic acid products and retinols at the same time. I use a retinol @ night 1-2 nights per week, and the glycolic product the rest of the time. I use a vitamin c product under my sunscreen daily, but feel that using retinols & glycolic products together can be too irritating for my skin.

I'm not sure if it's oil-free, but if you're afraid of breakouts, I can assure you that my skin breaks out really easily and so far, I've had no breakouts while using this. In fact, it is quite the opposite. It has cleared up my skin faster than any other product I have used. However, I must disclose that I am using the Laser-Free Resurfacer in conjunction with this product. It is fantastic!

If there are oils it is not at all greasy. I use this product as a daytime moisturizer with ID mineral powder foundation and my skin looks dewy and fresh. I get more compliments on my skin now in my 50's than I did in my 20's. Weird but real nice to hear.
