Oh my goodness! I just had to start this review with an exclamation. The very first time I swiped the wet pad across my freshly cleansed (I use Dr. Denese Hydrating Cleanser) and toned face, I was not prepared for the "stinging" sensation which was much like a facial I once had in a salon in which I had an acid peel administered and then a laser. I actually was quite pleased to know that this "at home use" product packed such a powerful punch.
What confirmed the product to be a magic formula for fresh, radiant skin was the moment I looked in the mirror the next morning. I had forgotten about testing Advanced Firming Pads the night before. I actually did a double take and looked back in the mirror and smiled. I am a 40's something woman and radiance upon waking does not occur often ;).
I waited a few days and then repeated the process. I left the product on my face overnight and was equally pleased in the morning. The second time I used Advanced Firming Facial Pads I applied my favorite serum after (Dr. Denese's Doctor's Skin Recovery Serum). The serum I always use after using the SkinScience Clinical Resurfacing System (Dr. Denese's Micro dermabrasion machine). Liberally apply this serum and you will enjoy smoother skin than imaginable!
Advanced Firming Pads are Step 2 in Dr. Denese's Six Step Skin Care Program. http://www.drdenese.com/six-step-skin-care,
I always enjoy reviewing Dr. Denese's products. After seeing her on a PBS special I never forget her sharing that we must "work" our skin, meaning as we age, we must wash, tone, exfoliate, moisturize, and make it a priority to take the time and use the products she formulates - - thus that youthful glow.
Using her products, especially Advanced Firming Pads give me that healthy youthful glow that I have sought for a lifetime. So much more convenient and affordable as compared to going to a salon. Worth the investment and necessary for my at home beauty regime!
