First a little background about my skin - It's no secret that I don't have perfect skin. I suffered from cystic acne in my mid twenties. That left me with scaring and premature aging skin. My problem area has always been around my mouth, where I have the most wrinkles and scars. So that is the primary area I'm focusing on here and where I'd like to see results.

My skin type - aging, somewhat sensitive, combination, acne scaring, uneven pigmentation

Now that you have a little background, let's take a look at the progression photos. I took a photo each day to document my progress. I tried to get the best lighting but somedays it didn't work out.









Results:
I did notice the fine lines around my mouth soften from about Day 3 on. Some days my skin tone looked more even than others. That's just my skin though, some days it looks more red. I didn't really notice the hyper pigmentation (spots) changing much. I did have some slight flaking (totally normal with retinol products) around Day 4 but it wasn't bad at all. 

I didn't notice any difference around my eyes (crows feet) because I do get Botox and that generally isn't an issue for me. I liked the Eye Cream though, it did not have a scent and wasn't irritating at all. Something I typically  have to worry about. 

Texture is an issue with me as well. I did notice a smoother texture to my skin despite the few flaky areas I had. 

Overall, I'm impressed by the results I got within the 7 days. These products are available at drugstores for around the $20 price point. I'll continue to use these products and incorporate them into my routine.
