Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was hesitant to purchase I honestly wasn’t expecting this to work as well as it has! I’ve been using it nightly with no irritating side effects. My face has never felt so soft and has helped with my pre-men pimples I’ve been getting! My face looks so healthy. I would tell anyone to make the won’t be disappointed!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great!! I have been using Help me for over 10 years. I am 49 and have no wrinkles. I look quite young for my age and I owe it to this product. I had signs of sun damage when I first started using this and they went away. No more hyperpigmentation. Amazing results!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I have been looking for a retinol treatment that not only didn’t irritate my skin but actually works and this is it! I have sensitive, oily skin and have been searching for products that worked. I love the purity line and decided to give this retinol a try. I’m so glad I did. It goes on nice and doesn’t burn. I don’t have redness from it’s use, and my skin looks great and feels smooth. The very first week of use my tiny breakouts vanished! I am ordering it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I looked for a retinol that didn't irritate my skin for a long while. I saw this product when I was buying a gift for a friend and decided to give it a try. So glad I did! My skin looks so much better and it's not red and irritated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I love this product! First time using Philosophy products, but wanted to try this treatment for fine lines and some uneven tone caused by mild acne's and inadequate skin care. I loved the fact that this was in a metal tube to prevent it from excess exposure to oxygen and the cream formula, as opposed to most of the other retinol treatments I've seen in the form of serum. After nighttime cleansing and toning, I could apply this treatment to my skin without additional moisturizer, although now that the temps are colder and the heat's been on in the house, I've been putting a moisturizer on as well to combat the additional dryness of the air. I absolutely recommend trying this product. I definitely saw more of an improvement with my skin concerns with this product over any other one that I have tried...and I have tried many, both pricey and bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Help Me I recently switched from a well-known skin care to Philosophy. I had not used high quality skin care for a month, so my acne was out of control. I began using the Microdelivery wash + Help Me, and my skin was clearing up in about 3 days! I love it and feel the prices are very worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped me! I love this product. I've bought two already and am purchasing another for my sister for her birthday. I hardly ever break out anymore and it had helped tremendously with my skin texture. There are days I don't wear makeup at all and I don't feel self conscious. I strongly recommend to those just venturing into the world of retinol. This is gentle yet effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works has helped with acne and has lessened the frequency of “flare ups”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works For Me! I have been using help me for years. My skin is very sensitive and prone to dry spots. help me has eliminated those spots and has helped keep my skin youthful looking. Very few lines and wrinkles. I have been stopped by strangers who have complimented me on my complexion. Philosophy products have definitely given me “make up optional” skin. I will be celebrating my 65th b-day in November.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This is by far is one of the BEST products I have used on my face. I am prone to breaking out. My mom discovered this retinol cream for me when I was in high school. I had stopped using it when I became a boke college student. My skin suffered tremendously! I now use about a pea size amount on my face almost every night. One tube lasts me 3 + months. I have combination skin & this product doesn't make me oily or dry out. I still get a couple of zits now & again, but that's nothing compared to what happens when I don't use this. Whenever I do get a breakout, I use Philosophy's spot treatment. I also wear sunscreen when I know I'll be outside for long periods of time, as I've been told to do so when using a retinol solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from philosophy's best yet! Amazing product! A little goes a long way and has evened out my complexion within 3 days of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Best product ever! Leaves my looking so amazing with a refreshed glow. I absolutely love the results from this product! Only a small amount is needed so a tube goes a long way. Will definitely continue to use this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best night cream! I've really noticed the fine lives have diminished! I will continue to use this. It's a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I've been using Help Me for about 4 or 5 years now and while I can't say for certain that it has prevented fine lines from forming (I am in my mid-early 30's) I can say it has done wonders at helping to keep hormonal adult acne at bay. Since I started using this my usual hormonal chin break outs have reduced significantly and the turn around for healing on any skin issue has also gotten better. A pimple that used to take 3 weeks to fully disappear is now gone within a few days to a week, and the cream seems to help minimize discoloration. I have somewhat sensitive skin, but I have never experienced any type of burning, redness, peeling, or redness from using Help Me. I can absolutely see a difference in how my skin behaves when I don't use it for an extended period of time. I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staple product I have used this product as part of my routine for years and its really a staple for me. It doesn't dry me out like some retinol products do. It gives your skin a great texture and overall improved appearance. There's a reason it wins awards, it really works

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great anti aging product Use this cream every night and I've notice in the morning how soft and glowing my skin looks and feels. My sister uses this and her skin is gorgeous and she is 66 years old. She bought the product for me . Now my skin looks gorgeous too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Help Me This is my favorite Philosophy skin care product. I notice visible reduction in fine lines after using daily for just one week. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff is no joke boiiii!!! This treatment is simply amazing. I have the most trouble skin ever: acne, super dry some days, oily the next, acne scars, basically you name it and my skin has gone through it. Needless to say i was desperate. This product is simply effective. I put it on every night before bed with a philosophy facial lotion and I can tell the difference in my skin by morning. If a zip pops up on my face, I put it on at night and the zit decreased by like 80% in the morning. Doesn’t dry out my skin either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My retinol treatment of choice! Perfect for my sensitive skin! My search is over. No irritation and I appreciate the delivery system in a metal tube. I use under Renewed Hope in a Jar several nights a week. Very satisfied!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My all time favorite product I have used Philosophy products for a VERY long time and this product has been around for a VERY long time; however it is still my favorite and has provided the most dramatic results for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite skincare product! I am 44 years old and starting to get annoyed by the frown lines and acne scarring on my skin. I have spent a lot of money and tried a lot of different products and until trying Help Me I can honestly say I have never noticed a big difference from any product. Until now. I am just getting to the end of my first tube. I use it in the morning and evening before moisturizing and my skin has never looked better. The scarring on my cheeks has smoothed out so it's not even noticable. Still working on the frown lines but I am definitely purchasing this product again! I have not had any irritation or dryness that retinoids can cause. Please do not ever discontinue this product. I am in love with Help Me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product This is my favorite Philosophy product. I noticed results as soon as the first use. My skin is left smooth and soft and I even saw a reduction in acne and age spots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great even for sensitive skin! I love this product! I was nervous to try a retinol because I have super sensitive skin, but after reading through the reviews I decided to give it a try and I’m so glad I did! I started by applying the cream right after cleansing my face at night and applied Renewed Hope In a Jar night moisturizer on top. In the morning I would wash my face, apply a serum, and then use Renewed Hope in a Jar SPF30 to protect my skin during the day. I used Help Me every 3 days (only at night) for the first 10 days with no peeling or irritation, plus I noticed my pores shrinking and my skin felt softer right away! I’ve worked up to using it every other day now and I still have no breakouts/irritation. My skin looks more even, the pores around my nose are smaller, and my skin is super soft! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you Help Me! My 55 yr old skin looks more like 40. I hardly have lines or wrinkles as I've been using this for years as a spot treatment before moisturizing. Just a tiny dab to spread on the laugh line and forehead area has Helped Me keep a youthful look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My FAVORITE I have been using this product for years because it WORKS, it is not greasy, it does not challenge my sensitive skin, and because it is effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as it gets without a Dermatologist prescription!!! When I have the extra money, and time for that matter, i go to my dermatologist and get a prescription for retinol and vitamin A. It helps so much with both my adult acne AND preventing and improving fine lines and wrinkles. I have tried so many products trying to find anything even CLOSE to what I can get only from the dermatologist. I finally found one! This product is amazing. My acne cleared up right away and I already see and feel the results of more firm skin. I would recommend mixing this with a small amount of a light moisturizer. It can dry your skin out, but nothing major.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have pretty sensitive skin, but this retinol cream has never irritated it. Just a small, pea-sized amount is all you need to cover your face as it's very spreadable. It leaves my skin soft and even-toned. I haven't been using it quite long enough to speak to how effective it is at softening fine lines, but it definitely adds a glow to your skin with regular use. I also appreciate that there is no odor to this. Will absolutely continue to use!
