Is this a good product for someone in the mid 50's?
Have used the Obagi system - skin very sensitive and had several "horrible experiences" w/it. Expected the peeling, etc. But I actually had cracked, bleeding, raw places around nose, cheeks and mouth area. Was advised to back off and start again and not apply directly to those areas. But after 4 or 5 of those episodes - I decided the wrinkles, etc did not look as bad as a "raw scabby face".

Retinol products may not be the best for sensitive skin, but you could try gradually applying this product until you have worked up to daily or every other day. It may be less irritating than the Obagi.

I am in my 60s with sensitive skin. I believe you will love the results. It doesn't take a lot of product...and you can apply whatever moisturizer after application you like. Obagi has always seemed too harsh from what I have heard from friends. Let your skin get used to it...I used it once every few days...as I am using it now...and it still works fabulously!

i am 48 with fair skin. i was wary at first of using this product on my entire face, especially under the eyes.
i started with the 3x, and moved up to the 5x. then i started using around the eyes. much to my suprise, i had no irration what so ever.
i am now moving up to the 10x.
it really smooths out the lines and brightens up the face.
i use it daytime under foundation, as well as before going to bed.
