I have been a faithful Sager for 2 months and LOVE IT! Here's what I use:

Facial Shampoo
Corrective Grains
20% Smoothing Cream (AHA, BHA)
2% Mother Strickland's Skin Relief (BHA)
5% and 10% Fix Zit for all over treating
SPF 25

I also have and love the MSSR Redefinition Mask and the 30% At Home Peels. I use the mask once a week and the peel every two weeks. I also have some other things...Old Lady Cream, orange and pink Gelloid, 20% gel, 4% MSSR, XX Fix Zit, etc, etc, etc. I use them occasionally but have weaned them out of my regular routine.

My favorite, could not live without products are the facial shampoo, 20% smoothing cream, SPF 25 and 10% Fix Zit.

A word of warning: Sage can be pretty aggressive if you want it to, but you should start off slowly. There is no way you should start off with the high strengths I use. Depending on which try me pack you get (if you do) you will probably start off with 12% smoothing cream and the lower levels of Fix/Miracle Zit. There is an adjustment period...mine lasted about two-three weeks. I was very red and dry and irrititated and was breaking out in places I never broke out before. But since then - over a month ago - I've only had about three zits and very small ones at that. The best part is how healthy my skin looks and feels - it's softer than I could ever imagine and has that glow finally. After the adjustment period, things should start to clear up and you can gradually move up in strength.

You also get a complicated routine for all these things and sometimes it's really confusing when and where to use everything - it's very specific. But don't let that deter you. You get used to it and after that, you can be out of the bathroom in a few minutes. Also, don't feel like you have to stick with your routine...I've changed mine a few times in order to find the "perfect" one for me, which I'll lay out below:

SPF 25
20% Smoothing Cream

Grains (sometimes)
2% MSSR all over (4% to spot treat)
20% Smoothing Cream all over (sometimes 20% gel instead)
5% Fix Zit all over, XX to spot treat

This is by no means the right routine for you. You will have to experiment for yourself to see what works best!
