Skin Care Review: Neostrata Skin Smoothing Cream

by Angela, San Francisco, CA USA


Refines skin texture, minimizes pore size High quality product, great value

Need to titrate use based on skin sensitivity Need to use an exfoliant at least weekly

This is an 8% AHA cream that I've used daily for the last 7 years. Neostrata offers a lotion and a cream AHA product, so if you prefer a lighter option, the lotion works well also. I initially used the cream every other day to minimize irritation, and now use it 2/day (morning/evening) in the spring/summer months, and in combination with a moisturizer during the fall/winter months or when I travel. I have extremely sensitive skin, and had problems with periodic breakouts until I started using this product. The primary benefits I see, other than eliminating breakouts, are better skin texture, smaller pore size, and better skin tone/color. I've tried other, more expensive brands and this one IS THE BEST. Incredible value for the money. Easy to find online.

Terrific AHA product, superior to the major brands
