Heard about this by a local Dermatologist a couple of years ago and tried it. Since then I have kept buying it. Goes on fairly light not heavy but helps keep my skin more youthful looking. I am 50 and often get compliments!

best ever used

5

As a grand user of MANY creams, serums and lotions over the years, I cannot tell you the difference I have seen in my skin since using this product. It really is amazing. Been using for 6 months, morning and night and will continue. I buy it only on sale, then stock up. This is my first review ever. It is that good!

When you find what works, why change?

5

My dermatologist started me on products when I was in my twenties. I am in my 60s and no one can guess my age because this product, and all the Skin Medica products smooth my skin and help with two age spots on my face.They have faded over the months. I have used these products for years. You can not go wrong with this. I can promise you. It is worth the cost. Try it for a six weeks and see if you don't agree.

SkinMedica TNS works

5

I am a 40 year old woman that used to have dull, olive skin and occasion chin acne. I started using Argan oil 4 months ago and I haven't gotten a zit since. Then I started using SkinMedica TNS before I go to bed and my skin looks brighter and smoother than it did when I was in my 30s. Even the pores in my cheeks look smaller than when I was a teenager. It is expensive but it is worth it. I don't rub the 2 products on the back of my hand the way they recommend in the instructions because it seems like a waste of the product. I have used different glycol creams and vitamin c creams in the past, and they did brighten my skin, but if I used them too often my skin would get really tight and flaky. SkinMedica TNS doesn't do this...to me anyway. My skin cannot tolerate any fragrance, and although this stuff STINKS, it doesn't irritate my skin the way perfumey creams do. I will keep using argan oil in the morning (goodbye little pebble zits on my chin!) and SkinMedica TNS at night.

TNS SERUM

5

I read a ton of reviews on this product but it's so expensive. My dermatologist recommend it after micro needling which drys your skin even more. After using this produduct with the cermide lotion my skin was a miracle! Dry sensitive pealing skin before after two days morning and night wrinkles diminish. skin no longer dry and now glowing. A gentile cleanser in the am super important I use neocutis gentle but at night I use IS cleanser. Leave it on for ten minutes it's like a gentle exfoliation no more black heads!!! And same TNS and gentle moisturizer at night. DO NOT USE THE MIA. IT WILL DRY YOUR SKIN. These products work!!!!Btw the micro needelining THE BEST PROCEDURES! My derm uses it with my problem skin and it works. She's tried every thing out there including three lasers but the microneedling works the best especially the lips and eyes with the above products. TRY IT! I am buying my products on this site because it's a trusted store not much cheaper but every little bit helps!

One of two best products EVER (and I try a lot)

5

There are two beauty products that I have ever tried that have transformed my appearance (I have had professional treatments that have, but that's another story).The first is a tourmaline-infused straightening iron- goodbye frizzies, hello sleek, beautiful hair!The second is this product. (Actually, the Clarisonic Mia also rocks-need the one with the sensitive brushhead, but it cleans pores like nobody's business).So, I have a milestone birthday coming up and I mega-splurged and bought this product.I had been using the Mia for about 2 weeks, and it lessened sebaceous hyperplasia, but certainly didn't make it go away.All derms and estheticians will tell you that ONLY a dermatologist can get rid of sebaceous hyperplasia, so this is really, really amazing!The first time, yes the FIRST time, that I used the TNS the sebaceous hyperplasia dissapeared. I was SHOCKED and do NOT think others should use this with the same expectations.(But remember, I had already diminished the hyperplasia with the Mia).Been using for about a week since that time.Already, my skin is noticeably more even, I had a few milia and it is making them go away and it is even helping with wrinkling just under my chin that resulted from Ultherapy (super expensive, super painful medical procedure that did nothing but cause this neck problem).The one thing I do not like about this product is, possibly because it has alcohol in it (fairly high up in ingredient list- why, SkinMedica, why?)I can't use the 1% retinol product that I was using.I do have sensitive skin (and the Mia makes it more sensitive), but I think this would be an issue for most people.I decided that for now I'd rather use this, but I may at some time go to a lower strength retinol and alternate use of it and the TNS.Also, I have oily skin, so it's no problem for me that it's slightly drying (very slightly), but someone with dry skin would definitely have to use a good moisturizer over it.I am only using it once a day because I tried it in the day and it IS kind of sticky. Funny, but don't notice that at night.Overall, I am honestly blown away by what a product that you can purchase on the internet can deliver.One last thing, you can actually get it for like $100 less, but I don't trust that you are getting the real deal (there are reviews to that effect to). For this kind of money, you need to know that you are getting what you pay for.

Did it make a difference....ehhh a bit!

4

I use TNS eye cream and love it so thought I would go all out and use the serum--it did make my skin appear smoother the next morning after I used it at night. After a few weeks it has not made much of a difference so I don't think I would splurge and buy it again. I find that I get much better results with coffeeberry products as well as kinerase. However it did smooth out my skin a bit so if you are on the fence about trying it--go ahead--it might work a bit better for different ppl

I'm afraid it works

4

My dermatologist recommended this product. I paid the outrageous amount, just following order. I buy most of my products from Target. I used the product and when it was finished I didn't expect to buy something so expensive again. A couple weeks later I noticed that my skin wasn't looking very good - and realized it could be the SkinMedica. I bought it again, and within a week my skin looked good again. I am afraid I am sold on this terribly expensive product. For me it reversed the damage of menapause - I couldn't stand looking older. This seems to bring me back to when I had sufficient estrogen.

Very expensive. but totally worth it

5

This is the most expensive product I have ever bought for my skin. I hope it lasts for a while. The result are quite astonishing, far exceeded my expectations. I get compliments on my skin all the time now, even some of the mild acne has totally cleared up. I need to get rid of most everything else and just stick with this.

Notice there are only a few good before and afters

1

So I bought into the hype of this product. The before and afters on their brochure were amazing! When I started doing more research I found there is really only a couple great befores and afters out there. Same pic, same people....I got the product and within the first couple days I thought it was great! My skin seemed soft and nice.As time went on, I realized there was no difference in my skin. It was soft right after I used the product and maybe even a little more plump, but by the next morning I had the same lines as I always did.After 6 weeks I realized I didn't see any difference. But I didn't take before and afters.... Maybe I just couldn't see it? Then I looked at the back of my hand. EVERY time I mixed the product together it always went on my right hand for mixing. So after six weeks that spot on my hand should look better than my left hand? Nope, absolutely NO difference.I paid $270 from a qualified vendor for an over priced moisturizer. I feel pretty stupid and my wallet feels lighter.Anyone else notice more broken capillaries after using this product?? I don't know if it was just bad timing or me spending extra time looking at my face, but since starting to use this product the amount of little broken red capillaries went up dramatically on my face. Anyone else notice this or am I alone? (Again could be timing... Or just finally noticing....)

Under eye wrinkles almost gone!

5

Let me just start by saying that I have never written a review before, but given the results this product delivers I feel compelled to write one. I just started my sixth bottle of the serum and have noticed some very promising changes. I use this twice a day on the face, neck and upper chest (the metered pump dispenses a generous amount) twice a day; except for the three nights a week that I use renova. I am only 32 and have pretty good skin, but started to notice some fine wrinkles that developed under my eyes in the past year. With consistent use of this product, they have diminished greatly! I also use the TNS eye cream during the day time and MD forte eye cream at night (I layer these on top of the essential serum). This trifecta has yielded more results that any of the other creams I tried (and I feel like I have tried them all!). My skin feels great, breakouts have minimized and there's a certain tightness I feel around the eyes especially (not uncomfortable). I'm not sure if these results are long term but probably won't find out as I will never stop using this stuff! I know its expensive, but worth every penny in my opinion.

This is a must have in this line. My 60+ dry skin has never looked better! I have been using this product since early October 2013 and it is worth every penny, this is a real find which I will continue to purchase along with other products in the line.Thank you Skin Medica!

The Best

5

I have tried lots of anti-aging products - over the counter expensive-luxury brands (La Mer, La Prairie), as well as those from Dermatologists (Prevage full strength, SkinCeuticals, Dermalogica, etc)SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum is the best at erasing crows feet and frown lines in the brow area.I do use a retinol product with the Essential Serum, however, I have used Retin A and the Retinol before without the SkinMedica product and it does not work as well.It didn't take very long before I began to see results. I definitely will continue to use this product.

Real Deal

5

I have used this product for 3 mths. and I am just being to see the results. The price is a concern so I just use very little , dispence a pea size on your finger tip mix and blend on . Doing it this way I got two and a half months worth.

I didn't see the result. It smoothes the skin which many products do. You don't have to pay $260 and bear bad smell to get that.

50 looking 35 yrs old!

5

I have been using this product for 2 yrs now. Yes it is expensive but all good products will cost you money. I just turned 50 in August 2013 and people continually say I look like I am in my 30's. The TNS product is excellent. Originally, got this at my dermatologist when I went in for Botox. I was surprised at the $260.00 price tag but gave it a try. It really works. I have dark circles under my eye too and have used the eye cream that is by Skinmedica - it is good too. One note: make sure you are using your Clarisonic daily and I use the Opal for my eye cream application. I also get Microdermabrasion every 30 days like clockwork. Have been since 2001. At night I add Retinol to my regime as well. I swear by it all and no I am not an employee of Skinmedica!

Amazing product!

I love Skind MEdica most specially this item. I have tried brand name like La Mer, SKII etc. and so far this is the BEST I've ever used as a serum. I receommended it to my co-worker and even her loves it.I just wish the container is not a pump since I can't see how far left for the serum. Somehow I wish I could wipe off the remaining in the container. : ).

Unable to Judge...contents only 1 month supply

Wish I could judge this product. Used twice a day everyday for one month before container empty...so can't really speak to how it works, only that it lasts for just one month and is very expensive.Really expected more content for the price.

Patience is a virtue

5

I am a major skeptic...I have tried it ALL...this product is the real deal. I heard about this product in a Dermatologist office and wasn't luered by the price $$. I saved the brochures just in case. Months later; after wasting my money on more product, I was financially blessed and decided to buy it on line. Price was the same at the Dermatologists so I ordered anyway. I must tell you...my pores lessoned, my frown lines lightened and my wrinkles on my forehead also lightened. The doctors were right, this IS the best on the market!

I have been using this product for a year now, 1st bought it at a spa for WAY too much. But through Skinstore auto shipping I am saving about $100 either way I would still buy it. I have been told by friends I have known for 20 years my skin is AMAZING and I look 15 years younger. My husband has been accused of robbing the cradle. Should keep me from having to use Botox for years.

Addicted

5

I have to say I'm addicted to this product. Sometimes I run out and quit using for a while because I don't want to part with the money. But I notice that the texture of my skin changes. It's hard for me to describe, but my skin just has a much smoother softer young look. It has more radiance like my younger skin did. I only use it once a day and I still get results, fewer wrinkles and more glow (but not oily, I have oily skin and I hate heavy moisturizers). When I splurge and use twice a day, I get complements on my skin all the time and I'm 50 years old - I know it's because of using this and a retinol. This product is full of antioxidants so you don't need anything else, except a light moisturizer/sunscreen.

Couldn't get over the smell + price

3

I couldn't apply this at night because I couldn't brook the smell. And even during the day, it could be a tad overpowering - like a dirty tennis shoe in a locker room. It may very well work wonders, and it should for the price, but I suspect that other much cheaper peptide products might work just as well, and are unscented. I'm amazed they can't make this unscented. They should.

Took off ten years

5

I was seriously hesitant to buy this product because it's sooo expensive, but I had a bad reaction to Botox and this was the next give-it-a-try step. I literally look 10 years younger. I'm 36 and it's dropped me back into the 20's. As in after about 2 months of use I've been hit on by guys in their 20's because they think I'm their age. I thought maybe it was my imagination that I looked better in the mirror! That said, I do exfoliate regularly which I think makes any product work better. I have blotchy acne prone skin and it does help the acne and blotchyness. But this product TIGHTENS my skin and makes it look less thin and more youthful. GOTTA buy it if you have the cash and feel like your looks are starting to fade....btw I dont even use a full pump of the fluid which makes the tube last longer.

OMG!!!!!

I have used skin medica serums in the pastbased on my dermatologist's recommendation. I was always very pleased. I inquired about the Essential Serum and was told to definitely give it a try.Well-I was amazed-very easy to use-the right amount for what's needed is dispensed-mix it up-put it on-add moisturizer and you're all set to go. I was impressed at first use but amazed as time went on it only got better. At first I still saw signs of damage-now it's not even a month since I started and definitely see improvement-it's a Fountain of Youth in abottle. At night just add the TNS retinol and in the am add a good moisturizer-sun screen and you're done. I love love love it.P.S. I'm on autodelivery-you save 20%.

Great Product!!!!!

5

I have redness and sensitive skin and this product is gentle on the skin plus it does give it a glow, reduces pore size, and seems to be making me skin look good. I have been using only at night to conserve but I think I would see more results if used twice daily. Need to use consistently or your results will stop. My con would be that it is expensive.

My favorite all in one!

5

This is the first all in one product that actually lives up to it's promise. Not only do you get the benefits of the TNS Gel in one chamber, but you get a ton of top ingredients in the APS chamber. The great thing about this Product is I no longer need a Vitamin C+E serum since it includes the newer stabilized forms of C and E in here. Also it has some natural Blockers of the enzyme that breaks down collagen, which is one benefit Retin-A has had on it's on. So for those of you that cannot tolerate Retin-A or want to use it this all in one serum provides collagen boosters and Blocking agents that reduce the breakdown of collagen.Besides the anti-aging benefits I love how healing the TNS gel is. I am a guy who has to shave his face fairly often. Before TNS it would not matter what moisturizer I put on after shaving I would get red razor bumps the next day and some ingrown hairs soon after. Now I can shave and not get one red bump and have calm glowing skin after shaving.I have only been using this for a week now, but my skin texture and pore size has been improved already. I can't wait to see the longterm benefits of this. Clinical studies typically show it takes 3-6 months to see the collagen boosting and dermal thickening effects of TNS complex alone. The APS complex should speed up the results.Just be sure to wear a good moisturizer over this AM/PM.

Fountain of Youth

5

I am a skincare junkie and have tried practically every product on the market. Although my skin has always been good, it is prone to dryness, dehydration and fine lines. My dermatologist suggested I try a combination of the Skinmedica Line, including the TNS Serum as well as several serums from the Skinceutical Line. Within days, I could see and feel a huge difference. Now, 2 months later, I look 12 years younger. Yes, it is expensive but to me, looking good on the outside makes me feel great on the inside. I find it hard to believe that anybody would have either negative or no results from this product. I think they are simply making excuses for not wanting to pay the expensive costs. This TNS SERUM IS TRULY THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH!!!!!

Best Anti-Aging & All Around Skn Product!

5

I have used everything on the market and this is by far the best! Since using this (about 2 months), my skin is smooth, lines are less visable and overall condition is more vibrant. My adult acne (around my chin) has diminished. I use the entire SkinMedica line and love everything they offer. It's pricey, but worth it. I don't even go for facials anymore.

Not worth the money

2

My dermatologist suggested TNS serum as it had "everything" rolled into one product. I've used it now for 3 weeks, and I am not impressed. I'll keep using it until its gone, but then I'm going back to Strivectin! My skin does feel softer, my fine lines are diminished. Unless you're rich, just not worth it. It's not botox in a bottle by any means! Maybe I have not given it enough time... If I change my mind, I'll change my review.
