You should wash, use Facial Treatment Clear Lotion on cotton pad to tone and be rid of excess debris, then ESSENCE, any serums, this, and then FINISH with a moisturizing cream suited to your needs. This has acids in it to result in cell turnover. Like an acne medication it can dry you out if you do not effectively moisturize. Last step is always moisture. This is a treatment. Treatment is after serums. Then moisture.

I use the essence first, since that will tone the skin and soften, so this refining cream can go on top smoothly. I noticed when I put this cream on after the essence, it gets absorbed evenly and faster. I do not put anything after this cream. At night, just essence, eye cream, and this refining cream.

None of this line will show effectiveness in such young skin, hence bad reviews. If your skin NEEDS it, SK-II is a miraculous range of highly effective products! For 60 I recommend Koh Gen Do Oriental Plants line as well. Enjoy!

Check out my review. I am 51 and don't like harsh masks. After you use this about 3 to 5 times, you will notice that your skin is smoother, more refined, pores smaller. I also do their mask whenever I want an added boost of moisture and my skin looks great. I do wear makeup so I notice that my skin texture is much smoother and I like the look. It's a wonderful line.

In my opinion I think this product does wonders to acne prone skin. Since I have started using this product I do not break out as much. I use this product as night and use a different moisturizer for the day.

I am 42 it does not eliminate dark spots but the underlying skin looks brightened and fresh. I like it. I have sensitive skin and it is okay with my skin. I have no break outs and it does not feel harsh.

At night, smooth it onto nose, face and neck (avoiding the eye and lip area) using spiral movements till thoroughly absorbed. Over time, it should definitely help reduce age spots.
