Post Msg for Complex 15 USERS, followup successes and where to get it?

Anyone have or is having success with this product and what stores carry it?

hey ... I just bought it today (8/10) to try to get some moisture to my dry flaky face ... you can only exfoliate so much with AHA/BHA, right ???

I got it at CVS ... Eckerds has it too ... I already rubbed a dab on top of my hand to see what it was like ... it has absolutely NO smell at all ... sinks in good too ... will try on my face tomorrow morning ... I'll let you know how it does in a day or two

okay ... I used this for the 1st time 2day on my face ... I must say overall I like it ... the no fragrance part is wonderful ... it did absorb well into my skin ... my face feels moisturized for the 1st time without feeling "greasy" ... I hope it stays that way...

My only concern is one of the ingredients listed on the back ... Myristyl Myristate ... I have heard this ingredient can be comedogenic ... I looked in Paula Begouns Cosmetic Dictionary and it says this is used as a thickening agent in cosmetics ... thats all ... but I have read on previous posts that it was a no no ... but the box says "non comedogenic" ... anyone got any info on Myristyl Myristate ???

hey ... I still do like comoplex 15 ... it moisturizes very well when I need it to ... I don't use it every day though ... and not all over my face ... just when my skin gets flaky and dry around my mouth, nose and chin from using AHA/BHA everyday ... definetly a good moisturizer for my specific problems and the fact that it is oil free and fragrance free and hypo allergenic is a plus too

May I jump in??

When I was dry from the first weeks using topicals, I found Complex 15 to be very effective, and caused no irritation or break outs. I only used it when I was dry and flakey...especially in the winter.

This is a great product for acne prone skin in my opinion. Only use when necessary. The more we put on our faces, the more chance for flair ups. Using less products is SO MUCH MORE!
