  1. Dannillee Says:

    My biggest concern is wrinkles and sagging. Its very much a problem the the elder generation in my family and Id like to get a hand on it before I too have this problem

  2. jmiranda181 Says:

    My biggest concern is my already dark under eye area and fine lines around the eyes.

  3. tessellate Says:

    I’m mostly worried about wrinkles near the eyes, but I’m always on the lookout for skincare that prevents wrinkles all over the face!

  4. vaidas4444 Says:

    my real concern are dark spots =(

  5. gibbonssarah77 Says:

    My biggest concern is dark spots and acne. I have no issue with lines or wrinkles yet but have battled acne and breakouts all my life and I still get them (I am 31). I would love to be able to have naturally beautiful radiant skin as wearing makeup really exaggerates the problem. Apply makeup (especially concealer and foundation) therefore blocking your pores and causing more acne that you are trying to cover up….again and again and again. It is also difficult for my boyfriend, as I can’t lay my head on his shoulder or foundation gets on his shirt. If I could stop the acne i would be able to tone down the makeup but so far nothing has worked.

  6. daneen2fabulous Says:

    At 45, I am just starting to notice the signs of aging. Fine lines and wrinkles, and crow’s feet that are not so fine at all! I have never had problem skin–no acne or rosacea, et al, just some inherited freckles over fair skin. Also, I don’t suffer from dark circles under my eyes, but there is no mistaking the puffiness that has gotten more apparent over the years, help!

  7. snevels Says:

    Biggest aging concern for me is lines & wrinkles. :/

  8. socoluver Says:

    My biggest aging concern is crows feet since the eye area loses water retention the quickest

  9. martinam1952 Says:

    My concern is a few wrinkles starting and some age spots on my forehead,this sounds like a great system to use!Thank you!

  10. jb1ab2 Says:

    my biggest concern is wrinkles around my mouth and eyes.

  11. dragonfly777 Says:

    I’m concerned with wrinkles I’m starting to see. But even more than that, my older relatives have sagging/jowls and I want to avoid that.

  12. acleverkitten Says:

    My biggest concern is smile lines. I don’t want to give up laughing!

  13. libby701 Says:

    As I approach the big 50, my major concern is loss of elasticity and firmness. People tell me I look sad or tired, that I need to smile more or get more sleep. I am not an unhappy or tired person!!!! So, I have noticed sagging at the jawline and around the mouth and eyes. Even though I do have a few wrinkles and crinkles, the southern journey that my skin is taking needs a detour!

  14. tlm1174 Says:

    My biggest concern is under eye puffiness/darkness at least for today hahaha

  15. hermajesty3 Says:

    The fine lines under my eyes are my biggest concern.

  16. marydz Says:

    My biggest concern is the age spots that have started appearing. I have a family history of them and it isn’t pretty…….

  17. candyd123 Says:

    Fine lines and wrinkles

  18. ladyboarder9669 Says:

    sun spots, acne, and some fine lines.. yuck!

  19. smthkat789 Says:

    I’m concerned with dark spots, acne and dry skin…sigh

  20. Joan Says:

    My biggest concern would have to be my laugh lines. As I am getting older, they are getting deeper and my joules are starting to sag.


    Biggest concern is wrinkles.

  22. liesh3727 Says:

    I’m always scared about the area under my eyes/around my eyes. I always try to dab and use my “least dominant” finger and pat lightly when applying eye cream/lotion near my eyes.

  23. lisamcf Says:

    biggest concern is the lifelessness my skin shows

  24. ephlet Says:

    My biggest concern is fine lines around my eyes and forehead and dark spots on my cheeks.

  25. lizeranne Says:

    My biggest concern is fine lines, especially around my eyes and mouth.

  26. monica3 Says:

    im very concerned with all of the above. Im seeing every sign mostly due to stress of caring for my grandparents & children on top of managing a home. I hardly have time to care pamper myself . Ive tried a few different cheap things but the wrinkles , sags, age spots are still there :(

  27. leslieesquivel Says:

    My main skin concerns, other than what causes them (chronic under eye puffiness), are wrinkles and sagging, mainly under my eyes. I have been frustrated with sagging skin on my neck for awhile now, but my eye area has become more noticeable over the past year. I would be delighted to give Apothederm a try!

  28. Maria J. Cardoza Says:

    My biggest aging concern has to be Dark Spots, Sagging and Acne. I am Fair skinned so I always wear SPF and I always try to use products that contain Vitamin C in it because it helps with discoloration. I am also noticing by chin area my face is beginning to sag a little so that’s why it concerns me. Lines and Wrinkles are not too visible on me, but I do use things to prevent and treat. As for acne, it seems like an everyday battle. I tend to get more that time of them month, but my acne is more stress induced than anything else in my opinion.

  29. labskita523 Says:

    Biggest concern is crows feet. =(

  30. just8 Says:

    I’m going with the sagging eyes. I’ve heard women stress forever about crows feet, but no one mentions the sagging eyes. They also failed to mention the disappearing eyelashes. Middle age hit, oh goodness do I need help…….

  31. mjcranford Says:

    My biggest concern is sagging and wrinkles under my eyes.

  32. valeriehummel Says:

    I would say it has to be fine line wrinkles that I have. I hope to win to see if this works for me.

  33. wizardewu Says:

    My aging concern is fine lines at the corners of my eyes and age spots.

  34. ljanemurphy Says:

    I’m aging. I’ve always wanted to try nicer products than I can afford. This would be so great to try something nice on my skin.

  35. missluckybreaks Says:

    I’m concerned about hyper pigmentation and dark spots. I’m lucky in that I don’t have many wrinkles!


    My biggest concern is bags & dark circles under my eyes.

  37. kate8333 Says:

    I’m looking for the latest technology!

  38. georgann Says:

    My biggest concerns are lines and wrinkles.

  39. Sassy21w Says:

    my biggest concern is preventing wrinkles, I don’t any yet and want to keep it that way.

  40. njf288 Says:

    my biggest concern is wrinkles especially under the eye and sagging skin nothing seems to work so far I hate looking older

  41. rjevans72 Says:

    For years I have had the typical skin problems..acne, oily skin, dry skin, very dark circles. This year I turned 40 and have noticed a whole slew of new problems. I have tried tons and tons of products over the years and spent so much money looking for just the right one and now I find myself trying to find products for new problems such as bags under my eyes, smile creases and extremely dry skin especially on my cheeks and around my mouth. I have tried to mix and match different products to no avail. I would like to find one product line that can help me with these new concerns as well as fix some of the old ones. I hope I can get the chance to try the APOTHEDERM ANTI-AGING SYSTEM.

  42. hilaryhersh Says:

    I’m concerned about the sun damage my skin could potentially reveal as I age. Being tan used to take priority over healthy skin, so I would expose it without any or with little sunscreen. Even as a teenager my mother would tell me to treat my skin “like silk”, but I didn’t always listen! I’d like a product that might revitalize my face!

  43. Stacey Says:

    I made many mistakes when I was younger and my skin has paid the price for it and I look much older that I really am. Willing to try anything to repair the damage.

  44. frogrobyn Says:

    I still have adult acne and am concerned about wrinkles and dark spots.

  45. ipodmom Says:

    Saggy, baggy, wrinkled skin
    Acne and the such
    I would love to win this prize
    Thank you very much

  46. clgrata Says:

    i dont like the lines above my nose, when i get aggravated they crease up. age spots also are so ugly. i have some fine lines but actually i look about 15 years younger than my age.

  47. sandollar Says:

    I got really sick last year & since then I have both dry & oily skin with dark spots & fine lines. Seems like I’ve tried everything to no avail.

  48. moondice Says:

    My biggest concern is wrinkles and dark spots….

  49. Kamala Says:

    I’m a 42 year old mother of 2 girls ages 16 and 2. Both girls cause their own wrinkles. The teen gives me forehead and between my eyebrow wrinkles and some crows feet from giving her the “evil eye” (so she says). Then we have the two year old, she contributes to the crows feet and dark circles around my eyes. I’m also allergic to Juniper, and we have forests of it here, every year I rub my eyes out the socket and even my skin feels thinner and easier to damage during this time. I keep telling my Dr. to write me a perscription for Hawaii during allergy season where there are no Junipers, but he just looks at me like I’m crazy. Did I mention I live in Arizona where they have not invented humidity yet so the air just sucks all moisture from our faces? Oh and last year at Costco this 30 something bagger asked my then 2 year old if she was having a good day with GRANDMA. Say whaaat!! Dang I didn’t think I was that bad! I just about cried right there. However the checker who was taking my money looked mortified, which was funny. All drama aside I would love to give your products a try and see if I can gain back some of the youthful appearance that time and space and my own ignorance have taken from me. thank you for your consideration.

  50. dmas73 Says:

    Concerned with sagging & large pores

  51. mama Says:

    I am a 50 year old mother of two. My concern is everything, wrinkles, sagging skin etc..I use all kinds of expensive products to try and turn back the hands of time. As I tell my husband about aging..I’m going down swinging…and kicking and screaming!!

  52. bcannaliato Says:

    I am getting to a point in my life where skin care is serious business!! Sadly, in the last couple years, skin care has become alot more result oriented than ever before. I have tried many different brands & systems, and so far, still don’t feel like I have found a good match. Of course all my facial skin is starting to move south, plus I have deep forhead wrinkles, starting to get deeper wrinkles between my eyes, on top of my eyes, crows feet, and dark, puffy bags under my eyes, followed by crepe-like skin under the eye bags!! Then I have more wrinkling around my mouth, deeper crevices around my nose, and then loose skin around my jawline, as if everything else wasn’t enough!!!! LOL Getting older is definitely not for whimps!! :) I hope I win this set! It would be awesome to try one without having to pay for it!!!!

  53. zippy573 Says:

    the two flippin lines between my eyes! i HATE it!!

  65. CindyH Says:

    My biggest concern is fine lines. I’d like to head them off a little before they become full blown wrinkles! I also am trying to head off the sagging due to major weight loss (100+ pounds). Thanks for the chance to try these products.

  66. sctanney Says:

    I am just entering my thirties and can see how my skin is changing alot, I have always been very much into taking care of my skin and have a strict skin ritual I always follow daily but you cant stop aging, I see more lines and wrinkles and notice black circles under my eyes more often and have had spouts with acne in the past I would love to try this product line to overall help with improving my skin!

    My biggest concern is sunken cheeks or a wrinkly face…my Grandma is 88 with some wrinkles but don’t get me wrong she is beautiful…looks like an older movie star from the 40’s, I hope I Look as good…so I use a good moisturizer everyday to ward off wrinkles that are so deep they could rival the grand canyon. Some people have such deep wrinkles it looks like their nose could plummet into the depths. So it would be great to try to prevent all that…would love to try.

    My biggest concerns are dryness, some minor wrinkles, and loss of tone.

  81. susanharp Says:

    I turn 55 next week, and like so many other women, my biggest concern is wrinkles. I’m not just talking crows feet, there is also the problem of the deeper lines below my eyes. Aging is an extremely difficult time for women, with all the changes our bodies go through, and dealing with the signs of aging on our faces can really shake our self-confidence and leave us doubting our beauty. We must learn to age gracefully and realize that real beauty comes from within!!


    Hate my frown lines. Help!!

  95. sandra Says:

    My biggest concern is flakey and dry skin. When I put makeup on, it flakes up. I moisturize, but that still doesn’t seem to work.

  96. mjreynolds32 Says:

    My biggest concern is that I haven’t really focused on skincare until the last year. I’m swiftly approaching 40 and I have three much older sisters (all 14-17 years older) that I watched moisturize and primp and protect when I was little. I said “why would you do that when you’re so young?” They laughed and said I would understand when I got older but now that I am in my late thirties and my skin has changed so much – I wish I had listened sooner! I now have to deal with acne scarring, fine lines, super sensitive dry skin and breakouts even though I thought I would be long past that stage. I’m also concerned that I will never find a system that really works for my sensitive skin or a hero product that will help solve my issues now that the chess game Father Time started has been going on for years and I haven’t been playing.

  97. CheshireCat Says:

    One of my biggest concerns is lines; especially around my mouth and eyes. I have dry skin so the lines really show up. :\

  102. raventally Says:

    I’m very concerned about my wrinkles and undereye dark circles

  103. NancysParadise Says:

    sagging, deep wrinkles, age spots… at 63 I could really enjoy nice skin again!

  104. CindySmiles Says:

    My biggest aging concern is … aging … and all that goes with it, lol. I look in the mirror and see the fines lines and wonder, should I be sad that it’s happening or should I be glad I’ve made it this far? LOL :)

  105. danielle10940 Says:

    under eye puffiness and dark circles

  106. kmart212 Says:

    My biggest concern is fine lines, lots and lots of them all over my face, and I am only 45!

  107. MonCherie Says:

    My biggest concern is that my face won’t show the way I feel inside! I don’t want to lose the vibrancy and “light” to my face that I feel inward. I am beginning to see a few spots and hope I have my Grandma’s genes. She just passed at the age of 93 and looking at her, you’d never know it!

  108. KAREN COGBURN Says:

    Help with acne breakouts monthly

  109. sweetmatcha Says:

    I have not been applying SPF diligently so now I think I’m getting a lot of wrinkles, esp around the eye and forehead area! I really need step up my anti-aging regimen!

  110. shopalot Says:

    Dark spots, wish there was something to just make them go away…..poof!

  111. cmcounsil Says:

    creapiness around my eyes, it’s very noticeable when i smile. i’m looking for a good face or eye cream to make them less obvious.

  112. kkreeger Says:

    My biggest concern is wrinkles and sagging skin.

  113. christal65 Says:

    I would love to try a new skincare line. I had to have chemo on and off for the past two years with a stem cell transplant last year and everysince then its been hard to have something that gives me enough mostiure and help ease those fine lines that pop up all over the face.

  114. wannarose Says:

    My biggest concern is the age spots. As I’m maturing, I am starting to see Dark spots, specifically on face.
    laugh lines show you a happy person,
    wrinkles show wisdom
    sagging.. um well you learn to live with it. :)

  115. auntiebb Says:

    I am so bothered about the way my eyes have aged, too many wrinkles and crows feet.I haven’t found anything yet that has really helped.

  116. marydz Says:

    I don’t like the age spots on my face or the small wrinkles on my upper lip, which my boyfriend constantly points out to me.

  117. sallygirl1971 Says:

    My biggest concern is wrinkles and my jawline isn’t as firm as it used to be! Now when I smile my face is full of wrinkles! UGH!!!!
