Skin Medica TNS Recovery Complex

5

I've been using this for several years for eye wrinkles. It is well absorbed, only takes a tiny amount and seems to work for me.

LOVE

5

I love the TNS Recovery Complex. I've been using it for about six months along with a regime of only Skin Medica skin care products. Everyone thinks I'm fourteen to sixteen years younger than I am. The TNS Recovery Complex is the first step of my regime. It's a fantastic product.

TNS Recovery

4

I am 52years old and my face has never looked better. I have been using this product for the last 6 months. Unfortunately, I will no longer be purchasing this product because the container pump has broken on the last 2 bottles. At this price I'm not bothering with this continuous problem.

Awesome Product - It works!

5

This product works! I wanted to try something different as I have been using Perricone MD products for over 7 years. I was aware of the Skin Medica brand and read several reviews on many of their products. I decided to try TNS Recovery Complex and am about 1/2 through? I use the ? mark as you are not able to tell by the packaging how much product you have used. With that said, I am VERY impressed so far with the results. My face appears to be significantly smoother, tighter and more defined around the cheek bones and jaw line. The only problem I encountered is that I need to use 2 pumps to get full coverage on my face vs the 1 the instructions suggest. Not sure how long the product will last doing this but I will absolutely buy it again!

It works period .

5

Stupid price but at my age and I live in the desert - I had to do some thing fast. Spent hours reading reviews. Decided to buy. Instantly felt tightening . After 3 weeks I swear my age spots are disappearing. My husband says my skin glows. I am also using skinmedica .25 Retinol complex. These 2 together seem to have made a world of difference in my skin. It really glows. I have sensitive skin and worried about the combo but after a little bit of peeling and doing it every 3 days with the Retinol and the TNS stuff every day and night my skin looks like in my 30's . Super happy. I follow up everything with Neutrogena oil free moisturizer.

Slowing the Aging Process

4

I have been using this serum for a year and still love it. It has a funky smell because of what it's made of, but that disappears quickly. This is the base serum that will feed your skin, smooth it, and get cels to start growing again. My skin feels wonderfully tight and smooth after I apply it. I love this product and continue to spend $$$$ to get it because I think it works!

I have been using this product for two months now and I didn't notice any difference in the lines around my eyes and forehead. I stuck with it hoping it would work.

I can understand some of the bad reviews...

2

Honestly, I don't get it. I've used this product since when they first came out with it. The packaging was different then and seems so was the product! I got the milia stuff! all over my checks and even the forehead!!At first I thought it was something else, so I quit using that but still kept using the SkinMedica. It didnt clear up and got worse! I want to give it awhile longer however there is only the 30 day guarantee. Also, don't know if maybe this lot is an issue, because SkinMedica recommends only buying it from them of course. I will have to return it but I'm very confused as to why I got this issue!!

True Results

5

I am very happy with my purchase of Skinmedica Recovery Complex. I have been using it for about two months and have had exceptional results. My skin is definitely firmer, skin is smooth, wrinkles have diminished and the tone of my skin is improved. This is the first product that I have used that really does what it says it will do. Will definitely repurchase. Just came back to purchase the moisturizer.

This is the Best.

5

I always end up coming back to this product, because it's one of the very few that work and have science behind it. The only reason I stop using it, is because of the cost. If I wear rich, I would bathe in this stuff..lol. This stuff doesn't smell great, but do you really care if it works? It makes your skin glow, improves texture, tone, boosts collagen to fill in fine lines, and speeds up the healing process. This stuff is liquid gold when it comes to face treatments. If you want to consolidate products into an all-in-one, then buy the TNS serum combo. Only other thing you'll need, is an SPF and Retinol product if you like.

Best of the best

This TNS is the best product I had ever used. Although I do not have fine lines yet, but I used this as prevention for lines, wrinkles and also some scarring from my old pimples. The amazing thing is if you have a new pimple, the usual healing could be a week. But once you apply TNS, the healing process shortens and you can rest assure that there is no scars left behind !!! Amazing !!!

Dermatologist recommended

5

A Dermatologist told me several years ago that there are alot of products out there. He informed me that this is the very best. I use it and interchange with Retin A from time to time. If I go to another product I can tell a difference and always return to TNS Recovery.

Really works

5

One reviewer mentioned it did not work, but I question how much time that reviewer gave for the product to work. You will not see results in a week or two, but over time you will definitely see results!!!I have used TNS Recovery Complex for over 6 years. I am mid/late 50's and a new grandmother. When I take my granddaughter with me, people think I am the mother, and the sister to my daughter who is 30 - I assume the older sister :). No one ever believes my age! I do come from good genes as my 86 year old mother looks to be in her late 60's. However, I did see a change in my crows feet and smile lines by the end of the first bottle. It takes time to work, so be patient.Perhaps take a before of yourself just for you to compare. The only reason I do not use the other products in this line is because I am allergic to soy and many of the other products contain vitamin E which usually comes from soy.

Great product

4

I have to admit that the first time I smelled this product, it shocked me (not in a good way). However, I got used to it quickly and this product is really great. I see a difference in the tone and texture of my skin, and my skin was pretty good already. Therefore, to see a difference this fast (5 days) really surprises me. I am using this TNS Recovery Complex in combo with the other SkinMedica products (eye creams, vitamin C, retinol, night cream) and I really like the results I see. I used to use Sothys Secrets products for about 1yr, but decided to switch due to their lack of disclosure about their key ingredients. I plan to stick with SkinMedica given the results I see thus far - I am amazed at the difference in a short time.

happy for years

5

A friend gave me this as a Christmas present 2 years ago, and I won't go without. I know I have good skin, but no one thinks I'm 52. I never noticed the smell, saw the effects almost immediately, and I get the product to last almost 6 months per bottle. Maybe everyone who doesn't like it or the smell is just using too much. Yes, for the first 3 months you use it twice a day, but after you are only supposed to use it once a day. Don't slather it on your face, use a single pump, maybe two,and use it in conjunction with other remedies. I use Revaleskins coffeeberry day creme during the day, Prevage over it at night, and I get excellent results.

Five stars? Yes indeed

5

I use TNS RC for a year and now I always keep one extra in stock. This is simply the only product that turns your skin from a bad night's look to a glowing complexion in seconds. It unifies skin's tone, firms and irons the small lines (does wonders around the eyes, where I use it together with Relastin eyes). I have oily skin, so I use it in the morning only with the Skinmedica's environmental defence sunscreen (exellent combination for me). And my last tip for serious results: combine morning use of TNS complex with evening use of Skinceuticals c e ferulic (excellent product too).

See the difference

I am into my 2nd month with this. I no longer notice the fragrance. I noticed that the fine lines below my eyes have gone. My overall skin condition is improved. The moisture level is improved also. I also use the dermal repair cream at night. I will continue to use this product and recommend it

Get over the scent issue!

5

Too many reviews concentrating on the scent. O. k., it's a little "off," but a natural human scent (read the ingredients) and it does dissipate within minutes. Instead, look what it does within a couple of weeks! I just went back to this after using Z Bigatti Restoration for awhile. The latter has not done well for me in hot, humid weather, so I am saving it for fall. This is truly an original treatment, and I prefer it combined with TNS Vitamin C and sunscreen in the morning, and the Retinol cream in the evening, but the Nouricel is essential, so if that is what you can afford, apply it before your own regimen. I have two less pronounced major lines with only two weeks of use. I know we're all different, and this may not work for everyone as quickly. However, a slightly different scent shouldn't put anyone off this, especially when it works so well!

Good for burns

4

I had a big chemical burn on my face from using too many skin lightening products for my acne scars. This product quickly and effectively helped the skin grow back and left no scar. It also reduced the fine lines around my eyes and forehead. I do recommend this product for anyone with sensitive skin.

Amazing product

5

Agreed that the product is expensive but it delivers results. Have been using it religiously for 1 year now and the product does what it claims. Don't expect overnight miracles however, it took me 5 months to notice visible effects. Best of all, it does not cause acne and most of the anti wrinkle products out there are quite heavy for my skin. No wonder TNS has been on the what's hot list for a long time. Many people would have mixed opinions about the product, but then again it depends upon your entire skin care regimen and how your skin reacts to this product. It is definitely worth a try.

Average results for Too Much $$$$$

2

I used up 142.00 worth of product in a month, and saw little in the way of results. Other products I have used for less money have been just as effective. At the rate I spend on this, after one year, I'd have almost paid for Thermage, and it lasts longer with more dramatic results. Don't waste your money; use Cellex C or Aminogenesis.

I've used this product for just over a month. I liked what it did for my skin but can't believe the bottle is already empty. I have another product - Colorscience that I use every day and it has lasted much, much longer!

smells not so bad at all

4

Maybe I am weird, I was expecting it smells really really stinky according to so many reviewers. It didn't smell bad at all to me. I just like the way it feels after I put on my moisturizer. However, it is too much overpriced with too little amount makes me disappointed. Overall, I really like it.

Smells Really Bad

2

I just purchased this product so I can not comment if it works because I have only been using it for a week. I can handle a lot of smells but this product smells worse that anything i could imagine. I will finish the bottle but i will not purchase again because the smell is terrible and it lingers for a few hours. Its smells really gross.

So far so good...

4

I just started using the Recovery complex, so did not give it 5 stars, but having tried many anti-aging products lately and was immediately impressed with the results of this product after the first few applications. I have read a lot of the other reviews here: yes it smells and yes it is very expensive. But from what I can tell so far it really makes my skin look younger, dewier & less wrinkled. Some reviews were disappointed that the results weren't long-lasting or drastic. In my opinion, if that is what your expectation is, perhaps you should consider looking past a bottle and towards cosmetic surgery instead!!

This product does everything it says it will do and I will never go without it. The results are well worth the smell, and after a short while you get use to the smell. Just wish it would not keep going up in price! Keep an extra bottle on hand.

Pretty Results!

4

My nearly 50 year old skin is brighter, smoother, and possibly more firm. I have gotten several compliments on my skin since using TNS over the past 3 months. However, the smell is funky, the price is crazy-high, and the contents of the bottle barely last a month. I'm trying some newer less costly products and will return to this if nothing else gives me the same results.

Good Ingredient!

5

I just started to use this gel twice so not sure about the result yet. I have read the reviews. I noticed that some one was wondering about the ingredient, human fibroblast. It said in the label "human fibroblast conditioned media" not human fibroblast. What is the human fibroblast conditioned media? It is simply a food or a treatment for the growth factors such as stimulate the production of collagen. Since I work for the cell biology lab so I know all about it. It is a good ingredient so nothing to concern about it.

I used this by rubbing it into an age spot on my cheek. 2 days....and definite improvement! Can you beat that? For tightening I was not impressed, over all for skin texure, it was OK...Definitely best for sun bunnies!

Like their other products better

1

I tried the full regimen of TNS Recovery Complex, Dermal Repair Cream, Retinol and Vitamin C for two months. While I am enjoying the results of the other products, the TNS Recovery Complex itself actually made my skin feel less toned and supple, and did not like the way it distributed on my skin. The recommended single pump was barely enough to spread on my face, let alone the neck and decolletage. I returned the unused portion of my second vial for refund, but will continue with the other three products. I have had better results from Sovage Idebenol, and have resumed use of that as my preferred regenerative serum.

I don't get it!! This stuff did very little for me...if anything! And the odor...oh goodness! I couldn't take it. Seems like face serums/creams/lotions should smell decent, or not at all. Too expensive too, for almost nothing but a nauseating stink!

This stuff is great

5

I was a bit skeptical about purchasing this based on mixed reviews and the price tag. This serum is fantastic, you see immediate results and by that I mean your face looks rosier, smoother and more even toned. I gave it four stars because it is a little drying and because of the price tag.

Too soon to tell

3

As a skin-care junkie for many years, I've been using Skin Medica TNS Recovery and the complementary Dermal Repair Cream for about three weeks now. It's too soon for me to discern any difference in the tone, texture, or elasticity of my skin, as I've been maintaining diligently with a succession of other excellent products - Kinerase, Idebenol, Strivectin, Z. Bigatti, and others. Perhaps there's no more room for improvement.

This product is AWFUL!!!! It did absolutely nothing for my skin except make it a little brighter, which I can acheive with all of my other skin care products. It has a STRONG Vitamin C smell and it makes your face burn! Does nothing for discoloration & created Milia and whiteheads. A month after using this product, my face started peeling as if I had been using a high dosage of Retinol, and I DON'T have sensitive skin.
