I am 47 with combination skin. I have some discoloration and a little redness from broken capillaries. My main problems are skin tone and wrinkles around the eyes.
I received a sample of the anti aging serum and the eye cream and I was hooked.
After only 3 days my skin was smoother, radiant and discolorations were starting to fade. I had my make up done on the 3rd day for a black tie event and the MUA asked if I had just had a facial.
It truly is the best skincare treatment I have ever used (including the Vit C serum I swore by). I used to get bi-weekly glycolic peels and my skin looks much better just using MLab. The anti aging cream is very heavy and i use it sparingly on dry spots on my face, however, i slather it on neck, decollatege and hands.
I got the full size serum, cream, eye cream and day lotion from Hautelook when they were having a sale. However, my husband surprised me with more for Christmas and he got it cheaper. You don't have to pay the full price, do some surfing and you'll find some good deals out there.
I have recommendated to several friends. One of my friends got the anti-aging/acne serum and said her pimples were already fading. Can't say enough good things about this line.

This product is "nice" but I didn't see any results to justify the insane price $275 for 1 oz. The serum has a nice, luxurious consistency, a pleasant minimal scent and it goes on smoothly. I liked the sanitary pump. I did not have issues with any flaking or rolling of the product on my skin (and I use a few other products under and on top). My skin was not "damaged" by using this but I didn't witness any real benefits from using this either. I will stick with my Jurlique Herbal Recovery Serum (my skin is firmed, refined and glows with amazing clarity) that is $67 for 1 oz. and Perricone's AM High Potency Amine Face Lift (vitamin C w/ DMAE), $95 for 2 oz.
I did the 1/2 face test using the serum with the M Lab Cream on top and then the other 1/2 with simply the M Lab Cream (without the serum). I simply just did not see results with these products. My skin was soft but it looked duller than usual (Jurlique & Natura Bisse products as well as my DHC Cleansing Oil provides the "bright, radiant" skin I need).
I am Korean, 43 years old (people guess I am 30 - 33). I have combination skin (dry in winter, slightly oily in summer however very prone to plugged pores and occasional breakouts). I use: Natura Bisse, Perricone, Jurlique, Jan Marini, Cosmedicine, DHC Olive Oil Cleanser, & MD Forte.

Well, I guess it works for somebody like a miracle given the first review on this. It did not work for me. I did not notice any difference in my skin using it. It does not irritate the skin and that is good. I have been using it only for a month that should be enough to see some results given the claims how potent the formula is. The price is just ridiculous. Frankly Botox is cheaper and works.
FYI: The line has Copper Ferment in it. I am not sure if you can use it with Vit C. It is not a peptide though, however, it might not matter.

I got a sample of this serum in a free sample pack that (thanks to the post office's machinery) was missing all but 2 samples (this and the anti-aging blemish control cleanser). Luckily, this was one of the things in the pack I wanted to try the most, but I won't be able to review the other products that should have come in the sampler.
I was somewhat afraid to try this, both because of the price (which is astronomical if I decide I liked it) and because my skin is sensitive and doesn't react well to a lot of anti-aging type products (redness, pain, irritation). But since my Vitamin C creme and serum have improved but not eliminated an expression line forming on one side of my mouth, I decided to give it a try anyway.
I've been applying a small dab of the serum to the area I want treated after spritzing on my Vitamin C serum and before my Vitamin C serum (step 2), argan oil (step 3) and moisturizer (step 4). I gently smooth it out with my finger and give it about 10 seconds to sink in before I apply anything else to that part of my face. It doesn't take much and it smooths on as easily as water.
There are no words to describe how I feel about this serum. Stunned, maybe. Amazed, shocked, thrilled. Those would be good, too. Within 1 day of use, I was seeing results. And within a few days the line had shrunk considerably, even under 5x magnification (which normally makes the line look horrible). I'm so happy about the results I could cry. I hate that line and desperately wanted it to go away or at least shrink. It's not gone, but it's shrinking steadily and I think it may be all but unnoticeable with continued use.
I haven't tried this as an all-over treatment, just as a spot treatment for that particular expression line, so I can't say what it would do to the rest of my face (it's too expensive to try right now even if I got a full bottle and I'm trying to keep my sample going as long as possible). I can say that I'm thrilled with the results in the area I did treat with it and that there was no pain or irritation. I felt a little tingling the first time I used it, but after that I didn't feel anything. The liquidy texture sinks right into my skin without feeling greasy or sticky and doesn't dry me out.
I definitely need to buy a full container of this miracle in a bottle. I'm going to be gritting my teeth at the price for such a small amount ($275 for 1 ounce), but since I'm only using it as a spot treatment, it should last me quite a while.
PROS: (1) no pain or irritation even on my sensitive skin; (2) fast results; (3) very effective at reducing my expression line; (4) sinks in quickly; (5) high level of active ingredients (you really do get bang for your buck with this serum!); (6) no animal testing.
CONS: (1) the price, my God, the price!
UPDATE: I gave in and ordered a bottle along with a jar of the anti-aging eye cream (which I'll review once it gets here and I can try it out). This stuff works incredibly well and as expensive as it is, I'm willing to pay to keep my skin happy and healthy (and line-free).
