    Love it! I've been using it since January. Makes my skin very smooth, clears away dullness and dry flakes, and is fading red marks from past acne.

    I just used the system,which was very easy to use. My skin feels very soft. I really can't tell if the texture looks any different just after one use.

    How soon did you two see results?

    well i was using the neutrogena scrub before so my skin was already "used" to a scrub....but i like this one much better and probably won't repurchase the neutrogena anymore....too rough and too hard to rinse...

    good luck!!

    Olay is pretty good, but Oh, Neautrogena is the worst! I just do not like their cleansers. I tried the cleanser again after a while after not using it, and it was really drying. I can't stand the smell or the feel of it. It feels sort of slimy or something. haha! I don't even know how to describe it. I just use Kinerase which is a white colored cleanser instead of that weird brown.

    Update: I have used the system 4 or 5 times, and I am loving the results.

    I am so glad I decided to buy this... thanks again to the people who recommended it.

    One question: Have any of you finished the activator bottle before finishing the scrub? I am concerned that I am not using enough of the activtor in fear of not having enough to along with the jar of scrub/mask.

    I am curious about that, too. I use a lot of the serum--a dollop each for cheeks, forehead, chin, nose. I'll post back when I get there.

    Cool I've been wanting to try this one.

    I have been using the Olay Thermal Skin polisher every other day in the shower and really loving that too!

    Love love love this stuff! I use it on sunday as part of my whole pamper thing. I use it before I get into the shower that way i can rinse it well. I also use it on my hands. Very nice results. I always follow up with the olay moisteriser. I have used it for years now and im pretty sure my mom used it too!

    How does this compare to the Loreal Renoviste line? I was going to restock my Renoviste on my lunch hour today, but is the Olay better?

    Regarding the discussion in here about whether we'd run out of serum before scrub:

    The opposite just happened to me, to my surprise.

    I've had the kit since January and used it once a week regularly, with occasional twice a week use, and I've now run out of scrub. I have at least one application of serum left, possibly two.

    Can I use that by itself for anything? Anyone try that yet?

    Hmmm, it may not work since it causes the scrub to foam. But then again, does the serum cause the skin to peel? If so, you could get the benefits of a peel but no microbrasion.

    If you try it, will you let us know how it works?

    How much of the scrub do you use? I saw the commercial the other day and noticed the model had a lot of foam. I don't get that much foam. Maybe I am not using enough of either product.

    I will try it and let you know.

    Regarding the scrub, I used a good sized dollop on each area: each cheek, forehead, chin, neck, and a teeny bit on the nose. I didn't get serious foam (it didn't look like shampoo lather or shaving cream), but I got adequate suds, I thought, and I was happy with the results. Wonder if more would even do anything?

    Lauren1904, I was reading through this thread and wonder if you liked the system. Did you get good results?
