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.

At 29 years old, my skin went south. I started to get acne that put my preteen acne to shame. I tried everything and each product failed or just made me break out more. I then decided to try the Philosophy clear days ahead system after hearing good things. It worked wonders on my nose, forehead and cheeks, however my chin was still suffering from severe acne and cystic acne. This Retinol product is my life saver. After dedicated use, I now can look in the mirror without one break out. My cystic acne disappeared and the dark scaring caused by the past few years of severe acne are gone. My pores are smaller and it smoothed the texture of my skin. I recommend just trying it if you are having issues with breakouts. It's not too expensive, so just take a risk. I didn't think I would have clear skin again without expensive dermatologist intervention, but this product proved me wrong.

Love this product. Middle aged guy here with clogged and big pores and crazy sensitive skin. Unlike other retinol creams, acne lotions, or even so called "regenerating serums", this one doesn't make my skin red, peel, or hurt. I've got cystic-type acne and it's difficult to both prevent it and clean it up. This product is a godsend for me. This product does make my skin oilier, but that is because it is opening up the pores I think. Oh, and it works well in evening out my skin tone. I use this with the Philosophy Exfoliating Cleaner and it's a wonderful combination for me...less acne, smaller pores, better skin tone, etc.
