This is a pretty good moisturiser which really firms. Its a heavier waxy like texture which sinks in fast so I only use at night. I find that it does not layer well and makes things ball up. I wake up looking firm and polished, almost a tighter look. It moisturises well and i just look more refined with this. I don't like the open jars so a pump would be most welcome. This also fills in the very small fine lines so is great if you don't wear make up or just a light dusting of powder.

I had tried the Osmotics line several years ago and, while I liked it, it wasn't in my budget. Now I'm dealing with more serious aging issues -- the beginnings of jowls, that God-awful crepey neck business, etc. -- and I've been embarking on the most serious routine short of surgery. I began by buying a Facial Flex, moved on to the Flexaway system and NuFace Trinity...and now I've added in a dermaroller as well. And I've been seeing terrific results. All of this foreshadowing is to tell you that since I started back on the Blue Copper a week ago, I have seen a wonderful new firmness and glow to my skin. I love this stuff. It absorbs readily, is never greasy and I think for me to see an improvement beyond what I was already seeing with all my other additions is quite remarkable. I use the serum as well.

This stuff is AMAZING! Yes it's expensive but so worth it. You only need a little bit to cover your whole face and neck. I believe one jar lasted me about 6 months and I use it every night as a night moisturizer . You can get it cheaper on amazon. My skin always looks fresh and radiant when I'm using this. I've tried other night moisturizers but always go back to this one. My skin is oily and acne prone, this product doesn't break me out but if I do happen to have a breakout, my skin clears up faster and is less irritated when I use this. It additionally has firming properties that I love. I definitely see a big difference in my skin when I'm not using this. I've heard it be compared to la mer cream. I love this product so much I have given it as gifts and turned my friends and family into believers too.

I've been wanting to try a copper cream for a while to help prevent (or least postpone) the loose, saggy skin that was threatening to develop around my mouth area. I also have reddish, easily irritated skin, so after hearing about copper's anti-inflammatory properties, I decided to give it a go.
First the good: my skin definitely feels tighter/firmer from using this. I've also noticed that if I have a lot of redness or irritation, it is 95% eliminated in the morning after I've applied this (I'm using it about an hour after applying my Rx retinoid at night, about 5 times a week). I also like the lightweight texture--it's almost a gel-like consistency. Which leads me to the bad--it's not incredibly hydrating. If anything, this product may actually be making me feel dryer. I often find myself layering on a more moisturizing product after applying the Osmotics product. I think that in the summertime, I will like the lightweight nature of it, but it's definitely an inadequate moisturizer for my winter-dry skin.
Still, I love how it calms redness and irritation and does make my skin feel firmer and younger. Will definitely re-purchase just for those qualities!

I got this cream one day when my face was completely broken out in red, bumpy eczema. I went to Nordstrom's desperate for a solution, and wanting to try to Creme Extreme. When the Osmotics SA saw my face she asked me if she could put some of this on, as it was supposed to calm and repair the skin. I said she could try it, and it really felt incredibly soothing. My outbreak was significantly better by the end of that day, and was completely cleared up in 3 days, which is a major feat! The outbreak that I had before that lasted at least a week until it was entirely cleared up.
I can't comment on the anti-aging properties of this cream, but I can say that it is soothing for upset skin and I do believe that it encourages the skin to regenerate quicker. I continue to use a dab under my Osmotics Cream Extreme every time I use it, and so far I haven't had any other eczema outbreaks. I also really enjoy the scent of this cream. I will repurchase and would recommend this cream to others with eczema. The only thing I dislike about it is the price.

This product seemed like a miracle. As the Nordstrom sales rep was talking, I kept on thinking-- wow, this really will cure my redness, capillaries, will prevent wrinkles, etc. Also, she mentioned that it helps with acne. It just so happened that I got a pimple around the time I got this cream, so I used it and watched the pimple "kind of" disappear. Perhaps it was a combination of Clean and Clear that I used earlier, but soon enough the pimple turned into the most horrific series of bumps that I've ever had on my face. The dermatologist prescribed a steroid cream that eventually solved the problem.
I was thinking that the only reason this happened was because of the cream combination and I really wanted to give this another try. Well, the same thing happened the secomd time around! I got another one of those bumps that the dermatologist said was acne, but it was like a red, bumpy birthmark. It is slowly going away on its own, I think my glycolic cream is helping. Anyway, this cream is supposedly very good, I'm sure it's great for many people, but for some strange reason it did not work for me, and my skin isn't even sensitive.

I used this along with cleanser and toner from the same line, ages ago. I remember my skin becoming really dry and dull. Not impressed with the line in general and think its too harsh for sensitive skin, and found it to be overpriced in comparison to results and ingredients.

i have very sensitive combination skin so it's hard to find good cosmetics for my skin and this wasn't it. but had to try blue copper because i never had before.

Broke me out every time I used it. I can tolerate Vitamin C, retinol and hydroquinone, but I guess I'm just not a blue copper kind of girl. I bought it as a result of a very high pressure sales pitch (yes, I'm a sucker). Luckily, Nordstrom was sweet about taking it back. It also didn't calm the redness in my face. Very expensive.

*PIC* I so wanted to like this product, but unfortunately, I don't think this was for me. Seeing you can't use a vit. c product with this, (and i like to use an anti-oxidant serum beforehand) I was thus using a red tea serum, which just wasn't hydrating enough for me, so seeing I didn't find this cream on it's own hydrating, my skin was screaming for hydration :( (Boy, talk about using the word hydration alot :) Anyhow, about the cream, I think it did offer a firming effect, and it was not greasy at all, felt very smooth, but, I felt like it would just sit on top of my skin,(maybe i was using too much? i do have a tendency to go overboard) and each time I would apply my mu over, it had the tendency to slightly ball up. I can understand if one has normal, combination or oily skin, this may be a very nice cream but my skin is dry-dehydrated, and so i think i was making my skin appear worse seeing it lacked the moisture it so needs, which i suppose is more important to my skin than firming-anti-ageing. (I use retinoids at night for anti-aging anyhow, but thought maybe i could give it more boost or oomph with this) but alas i was wrong seeing my skin started to look more dehydrated.
But I do think it may suit other skin types. I bought the 30ml size for 69.95US$ (including shipping) at skinstore.com
