Overall, I really like the RE9 line of products. The cleanser is the best cleanser I have ever tried. It cuts through make-up with just water. Your face is squeaky clean. I am not very fond of the toner, which you spray on and leave. It does seem to leave a film. I use the toner and then rinse it slightly with water and let it air dry, then it is okay to apply the rest of the products. I love the day cream with the SPF already in it. The eye cream is superb for fine lines around the eyes. The night cream feels a little greasy at first but after a while it all soaks in and your skin feels like velvet. It is a little expensive, but well worth the money for aging skin to look its best. Absorption It takes a while but the products all absorb into your skin making it soft and supple. Doesn't Clog Pores I have not found this to be a problem. In fact, I think it cleans out your pores, especially when you use the facial scrub. Effectiveness These products are very effective for older skin to help slow down the aging process.
