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.

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.

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.
