I was recently sent the M.A.D Youth Transformation Retinol Complex Serum 1% ($79 in the shop)by the folks over at Truth in Aging. I am almost 60 years old with very dry skin. I have used prescription retinoid in the past. They were excellent, but very drying on the skin, not to mention the peeling and redness I suffered. I have done a lot of research on retinols. I have tried almost every over the counter product on the market. Many of them seem to be nothing more than glorified moisturizers.
This M.A.D. product was absolutely wonderful. I noticed almost immediately my skin was softer and much brighter. The longer I used this product (I've used it for about a month now) the more my dark patches have cleared up. I realize this is not prescription strength but the tradeoff is no redness, peeling or downtime. I also use the Ultra Renew device. I am your Number One fan on that. I am also noticing some of the finer wrinkles are smoothing out. I'm sure the serum combined with the Ultra Renew is why I am looking younger - that is what I am being told.
I would definitely recommend M.A.D Youth Transformation Retinol Complex Serum 1% for anyone with mature skin. As with any product it takes time to realize its full potential, but with the results I have seen already, I am certain this product will produce the results I am looking for. I am on my way to younger looking skin!
