"I am 57 and tried numerous brands, concoctions, etc., to try and keep my skin in the best shape possible. I have to say I was skeptical when I rec'd this (part of a kit) but decided to try it. When I read the suggestion of using the left over pad for the backs of your hands and forearms and tried it I was truly amazed at the difference in the brightness, youthfulness and even many hours later WITHOUT lotion the tops of my hands and forearms glow and are soft and smooth. Needless to say it's done wonders for my face - - several dark spots that I've spent hundreds of dollars trying to reverse haven't even come close to the results I am getting with Dr. Denese. I am sold. I have used this for 3 months and will be back for more!!!! If I could only afford one thing for my face this would be it!
