Alpha Hydrox Retinol ResQ is an awesome anti-aging moisturizer. I don't have health insurance and could not afford the Retin-A prescription strength. So I bought this online a few months ago and am still using it 4 months later. A little bit goes a long way. My face feels so moisturized after using this product. I am 36 years old and felt like I needed to do something to stop the aging. Not that I'm seeing wrinkles, it's just that I don't want to ever see them anytime soon. I've been blessed with oily skin all my life. But with it came acne at a very early age. That's long gone now except for the occasional one or two a month. But this product has helped me tremendously. It deeply moisturizes without feeling heavy coated. It gives my skin an instant glow effect. It helps heal present and past blemishes that I've had. My overall texture is smoother from using this. I use the ResQ at night and sometimes days if I'm not going anywhere that day. When I do leave the house I wear a sunscreen of spf 45. I'm very pleased with the results Alpha Hydrox Retinol ResQ has given to me.Even though it recommends to use the Alpha Hydrox cleanser I use my own gentle cleanser. I rub this all over my face and neck. I even dab a little extra right under my eyes just for extra assurance. Alpha Hydrox Retinol ResQ contains topical vitamins A,C & E. So it is very healthy for the skin. Seeing results from this product makes me feel like I'm treating my skin right. I will always be a fan. Absorption It absorbs quickly and easily. But you can tell that it is on the skin because skin feels moisturized but not greasy. Doesn't Clog Pores This product doesn't clog my pores at all and I have oily skin. Effectiveness Very effective on my skin. Results were seen within a week.
