I’m not sure if this is too early to really comment on this or not..but here goes for now. If I notice a major change in the future, I will update this.I read the 2 other negative comments and I have personally not experienced these at all. I have normal to oily skin and have not had this dry my skin at all. I have semi-sensitive skin and so was not sure if this would make me real red and feel sunburned..but it hasn’t at all! And I have been using this twice a day and still no side effects.Now I am only 27 and don’t have any wrinkles, but I still wanted to try this product to PREVENT anything from ocurring or at least just make my skin look better (you can never have too much of that). It’s hard to tell if there is a change in my skin. It just might be too soon for me to notice anything yet.Fingers crossed that it will only get better! But at least I have no bad results at all. And by the way, the smell that the first person mentioned: it smells just like hair color. It’s really not a big deal, just a little odd at first.
Great for a breakout
I recently had a pretty bad breakout on my upper back, presumably from working out through the summer in a very hot, very sweaty environment. Never having had skin problems before, I didn’t really know where to start. After seeing if it would clear up, I tried a variety of obvious things – extra thorough cleaning, cortisone creams, extra moisturiser, witchhazel, tea tree oil, exfoliators, moving on after a couple of days of no change at all with each thing and feeling sensitive about wearing tank tops – the skin was looking pretty ugly. I started using Neutrogena’s medicated body wash about this time. Searching through my bathroom for anything I hadn’t thought of yet, I came across a sample of Neostrata I got from a drugstore last year. The words ‘glycolic’ and ‘AHA’ caught my eye, as I’d read they were highly thought of for my kind of skin issue. After only a couple of days I saw significant drying in the affected skin. The pimples looked less red and much drier. It’s been a couple of weeks now and the difference is huge – I fully expect it to be unnoticeable to anyone but me within a month. It was a pretty bad breakout, and I am HAPPY with the speed of healing. Please note I was also using the body wash during this time, so maybe it was a combination effect but my experience in conjunction with other reviews on here leads me to believe the major improvement is due to the NeoStrata. I ordered a large bottle from Amazon and have started using it on my face, with high hopes. Looking forward to smoothing over years of hormonal chin skin and a couple of blemishes that just never went away. Highly recommended.
I’m a true glycolic acid girl…cannot use any retinol products so this is perfect. I wish I had know about this brand years back, but I have been using AHA acids since my early 30’s (55 now) For some reason I seem to tolerate these products well. Little goes a long way, pricing seems ok, just got the daytime stuff so I’ll let you know, love this use it at night. I’m a sun lover, have very few wrinkles on my face.
I have sun damaged skin because I kayak on the weekends. Since I had the common sense to wear a kayaking hat, my arms were the only part of my body to take the full brunt of the suns rays. I did an experiment. I put the Neostrata which I borrowed from my wife, and put it on my left arm. I put this on twice a day for one week(as she said that I should see a difference by then). After one week of using this, the skin on my left arm didnt look as cooked and crispy like my right arm. It did look better. I just wanted to try it out to see if it actually worked. When they eventually find a way to create a bath soap version of this, I will use it everyday, but for now, I will give it back to my wife, with my seal of approval.
The most incredible cream out there 🙂
Let me say that this is the best skin care cream I have ever used and I know for a fact that it works because so many dermatologists stand behind it.I’ve used it for a little over a year now and I won’t use anything else. I don’t know the last time I ever had to use an exfoliating scrub because what this does, is an automatic scrub. It is gradually sloughing off dead skin cells for you and rendering the use of exfoliaters useless.I must say, it has a natural funky smell but you do adapt to that very quickly and won’t notice it after a while. You use it once a day for the first two weeks (while your skin gets used to it) and then twice a day thereafter if you want. I only use it at night and a sunscreen throughout the day because the skin is a little more sensitive to the sun.Caution – this is an acid cream. I once had a minor paper cut on my finger (the same that I use to dip into the pot) and I still get tears in my eyes thinking of the pain I was in.This is an excellent cream and I strongly recommend it. It won’t get rid of wrinkles (you have to know that there is practically NOTHING on the market that will get rid of them) but it will soften the look of wrinkles and it will give your skin a beautiful softness and glow. It’s an amazing cream with true genuine results.
