Question

Do I use this product in place of my regular moisturzier at night - or do I need to apply moisturizer on top? Also, can I buy the pads by themselves?

Also, can I buy the pads by themselves? I have solution left over but no more pads.. Thanks!

I use moisturizer after the solution soaks in, usually about 3 minutes or so. Any kind of night cream will do. Don't know if the pads are sold separately.

You apply moisturizer on top. Pour all the liquid in the pads. It should all absorb with none leftover.

Use this instead of moisturizer at night and use your moisturizer in the morning. And pour all the solution on your pads in their container jar next time.

First. you shouldn't have any of the solution left. You should be pouring the whole bottle onto the pads when you open it. This is not a substitute for moisturizer. I use my pads and then moisturize every night.

The pads are to be used first. After the serum absorbs into my skin, I apply my HIAJ moisturizer. As for the pads, they are not sold separately. The liquid in the bottle is to be opened and poured completely into the jar of dry pads, when you receive the kit. It may look like it will overflow, but it won't. The pads are thoroughly soaked and fresh down to the last one in the jar. HTH!

You don't have to apply moisturizer on top. Also you shouldn't have any solution left. The pads aren't meant to be individually soaked with the retinoid solution, you are supposed to pour the entire solution over the pads in the jar and seal. This ensure maximal concentration.

The pads are just a semi-abrasive (i.e. exfoliating in texture) cotton mix pads, so without the solution, which you pour over the pads before using for the first time, there wouldn't be any benefit to the pads themselves. You shouldn't have solution left over if you follow the directions and pour the entire bottle of solution over the pads; that said, since you do have solution left over, just buy some regular drugstore cotton pads and use those to apply the solution.
As for whether you need to apply moisturizer on top after applying the solution-soaked pads, I think that's dependent on your skin type and, more importantly, how your skin feels a few minutes after the solution has dried on your skin. If your skin feels at all tight or irritated or dry, then by all means apply a moisturizer afterwards. If your skin feels fine after application, you don't need to apply moisturizer on top, unless you want to. The solution contains a ton of great ingredients so your skin isn't lacking in needed nighttime treatments beyond this, but again, if your skin feels tight or dry after application, a moisturizer isn't going to keep the solution's ingredients from working properly. Just don't use a moisturizer containing retinol since the solution has a lot of retinol in it already and you don't want your skin to become irritated from too much retinol.

You get 60 pads, and it's worth the money .. very good on sensitive skin and skin that cannot handle a retinol.

Yes. I also used "Help Me" and gave it up for the Miracle Worker Pads. I noticed a much faster result with the Miracle Worker program.

Yes! I retinol product is enough. I have used both products, separately, by the way. The pads are my favorite, and I saw more noticeable difference with them. HTH:)

hi Laurie - I'd think that you'd probably want to alternate the 2 products; so use one on Monday and the other on Tuesday, etc. I personally love the Miracle Worker retinoid pads and have ditched Help Me since trying them - but everyone's different. Depending on your skin's sensitivity to retinol you might find that you prefer one product to another. Good luck!

I use prescription Retin-A and also these pads without any excess sensitivity, but then again my skin isn't super-sensitive to start with.
