Although slightly pricy this product is worth every penny!
I am 26...almost 27 and I have fine lines, large pores, occasional acne and uneven skin tone and texture.
I have very sensitive skin and this has not caused any redness or irritation.

I started using Help Me two weeks ago. I've already seen a reduction in the brown patches on my forehead and cheeks (i.e., melasma) by maybe 20%, less noticeable pores (because they're getting cleaned out), smoother skin, reduced small wrinkles around my eyes, and - I didn't know this would happen - a reduction in the dark circles under my eyes! I've never used a retinol product before, but I am really surprised at how well this works. After the first week, it did sting slightly for about 30 seconds after applying, but that hasn't gotten any worse since. Also, I did start getting very small dry skin patches near my eyes and a bit on my cheeks/chin, but I hadn't been applying moisturizer on top of Help Me like it recommends, so now I do and the little bit of dryness has gone away.

I am excited to see if the improvements keep on getting better, or if it will plateau after awhile. So far, I'm a big fan of this product and highly recommend it! I usually get most of my beauty products at the drugstore because I never notice that much of a difference between the cheaper vs. expensive brands, but I think Help Me is worth the department store price for sure.

June, 2010 - Edited to Add: I ended up going to a dermatologist for another issue and she gave me a prescription for a similar, much stronger product (Triluma). The Rx stuff is about $150 per tube and not covered by insurance, but it works like you wouldn't believe. So now I use the prescription, BUT I still highly recommend Help Me because for the price it really really did make a significant difference in my skin texture, coloring (more even), and reducing clogged pores. If you don't have melasma, Help Me is plenty strong enough for normal skin.

I have only been using this product for two weeks and it has already erased 2 age spots on my face. The rest of my face looks brighter, pores smaller and my complexion looks great. My skin is usually pretty sensitive and this has not caused any adverse reactions. Overall, I am pleased and will stick with Help Me.

For years I've used Proactiv on and off for my battle with acne. Proactiv has proved effective over the years but I had a few problems with the products:
1. The Price... For a cleanser, toner and moisturizer I was paying $45 dollars a month.
2. The Amount... I could NEVER get the cleanser and toner to last me the full month. To cover my face I needed half the bottle, and it is NOT an effective makeup remover.
3. Dryness... dried my skin out BAD. And the moisturizer sucked, but I couldn't customize my order to remove it.

After much research, debate and watching the infomercial over several times over I decided to switch to Philosophy. Now if you purchase Philosophy products individually it does get pretty spendy, but no more or less than other department store facial products. As a package it's a helluva deal.

I got the cleanser, moisturizer, retinol, exfoliating cleanser, eye/lip cream, shampoo/body wash, lip gelato, another exfoliating cream, and the Vitamin C booster AND A FREE GIFT for LESS than what I paid for my three rinky dinky Proactiv products.

For 8 products I paid $109.00 for 3 months. 3 months of Proactiv is $135, at the least.

The Philosophy product themselves have been life changing for me. If I absolutely had to choose one that I love the best I would have to say it's the Help Me.

This stuff is absolutely amazing. My skin is very sensitive to retinol, and continuous use of it for me on a weekly basis usually leads to a rash. This product seems to have enough retinol to do the job, but not enough to make me get a burn. I swear, within a FEW DAYS I noticed a difference, and I wasn't the only one. My husband has raved about the lack of lines under my eyes, and swear the product has taken years off of my face.

Size Name: 1 oz.
Philosophy's "Help Me" is by far the best retinol skin cream I've ever used (and I've tried quite a few different ones, in all price ranges)! Originally I'd purchased Philosophy's "On A Clear Day", which is their retinol cream for acne-prone skin, thinking it would be better for me, as I have sensitive skin that tends to break out easily. For some reason though, "On A Clear Day" actually contains MORE moisturizing ingredients than "Help Me" does (one of them being hyaluronic acid) which makes no sense, as it's for acne prone skin (which you'd think would need LESS moisturization)! Anyways, the "On A Clear Day" made a horrible mess of my skin, I was broken out, oily, and gross. I returned that cream and exchanged it for the "Help Me" (even though a part of me was thinking I should try a different product line altogether, due to my awful experience). Let me tell you, it was the best thing I could've done! From the moment I started using the "Help Me", my skin has been getting better and better. It cleared up the break out I had going on and the overall look and clarity of my skin has improved dramatically. I haven't noticed a huge difference when it comes to fading scarring or anything, but that would probably take more time to clear up. I use this a few nights a week (without adding a moisturizer on top -I think that's a bit overkill, this lotion is enough to handle mild to moderate dryness) and have not had any redness, irritation, peeling, breakouts- nothing! Just perfectly moisturized, glowy skin!Read more ›
