Checking to see if there is anyone out there who has used both of these products for at least a month plus. I am looking for new Retinol treatment to use at night. I am currently using Philosophy's Help Me and I haven't seen as much improvement as I thought I would. I have been using it for approx. 6 weeks now. I know that Dr. G's Peel Pads have quite a few additional ingredients than the Philosophy Pads, but then again they are about twice as expensive. I am willing to pay the difference if it is worth it, but if they are pretty much comparable in results then obviously I would want to save the extra $$. History: I am a 44 y/o women with good skin. I have always taken great care with my skin (stayed out of the sun, used sunscreen religiously, and have used top quality skincare products since my early 30s). I want my skin to stay this way... and believe the solution is to prevent instead of trying to repair. I do have a few wrinkles. I have those pesky 2 lines between my eyebrows (on the faint side) and am starting to show age around the outside corners of my eyes. I know that neither of these products will treat my eye wrinkles. I am still looking for the perfect eye cream. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

I liked Philosophy's better. The other pads did nothing for my oily skin or acne. My skin looked really nice when I used those, but they are pricey. Philosophy does have sales from time to time on their website, so keep an eye out.
