I tried this cream to reduce the appearance of laugh lines and forehead wrinkles and also as a preventive measure for wrinkles. I like retinol because I have had good results with prescription creams but I think this cream is less potent than a prescription so I did not get the results I was looking for. I did not see a difference in my laugh lines or forehead wrinkles. I also did not see an improvement in dark spots or sun damage. The cream itself is smooth and applies quickly and evenly. The cream didn't have much of a scent which was nice. I was able to use it under makeup and sunscreen without it affecting the application or appearance of either. I could feel the creams ingredients right when I rubbed it on which help you to know it is being absorbed well. Doesn't Clog Pores This cream did not clog my pores or make me break out. I have sensitive skin and I had no problems with this cream.
