This is very similar to other products I have bought and I hope this turns out to be BETTER since I paid so much and it is NOT returnable. I will have to use for awhile to see the results. Most skin care items are extremely expensive. I have so many and I can attest to that, but if and only if the few I am trying work just okay, I am moving on to Olay products that are less expensive at the drugstore. I have hope. We will see. It is hell aging.
