So I was at the department store and saw this company line and picked some samples - seems to have wide line of products, but they don't look cheap - averaging ~$30 a product almost... I tried checking some product reviews on amazon afterward, but the reviews look fake - i.e. made by the same people over and over... credible / legit company?

It seems there's a big push on these glycolic/salicylic acid-type of cleansers,exfoiators and cream-lotions. I called the company to get some answers but the customer service rep wasn't very knowledgeable / helpful.

I've been using MenSci for years.

With the daily face wash, a small bit will do. You cant really compare this product by the price/Oz. ratio like you can other products. A bottle will last you a long time though, so I feel its a good value.

The AHA/BHA in it will keep your pores extremely clear. That's the products best purpose. I use it about twice a week. I exfoliate once a week and use Baxter's daily face wash for what's left since it's so gentle. This is the best way I have found to use the product. I recommended it.

A lot of people apply too much when they start out though because few other face washes have the same concentration. Even a dime size application is too much. Start out small.

Their products are aite, nothing too bad, nothing too special. Think you should go with another brand if you going to spend that money.

Cool thanks a lot for the replies... I'll probably look for more cheaper alternatives. I was calculating their line would cost $200+ for everything lol. I didn't know that the Olay Regenerist line was well reviewed by consumer reports, and to add - that they can be used by men too.... basically I was looking for a no hassle, year round moisturizer that keeps the skin matte through the entire day... and at the same time, heals (maintaining youthfulness) , protects and doesn't irritate or give the skin (especially the face) a tight, itchy feeling - probably known as the "Holy Grail Skin Line"


I wonder what happened to minimalistic, more natural skin care approaches over these years...
