I like this product but not into it. I feel this gel leave my skin hydrated, which I love. However, it's a great hydrating gel for me in summer and nothing more. It does plump the skin around my dry pores and, as a result, make the pores looks smaller. I'd call it hydrating but, never, anti-aging. I got this BOGO plus 35% off tax free. I think it's a fair price ($32.5) and I won't pay more than $40 for this.

Got a sample of the Lineless Gel and No More Lines at Sephora. The Gel does nothing - zero, zip, zilch. You can get much better anti-oxidant treatments for much cheaper. Skip it.
The accompanying No More Lines is a very temporary line filler; it can't make any permanent improvements. Basically it's got 4 kinds of heavy-duty silicone and an elastomer that covers the surface of your skin like plastic wrap.
So you pat this on your laugh or eye lines - don't bother doing your whole face, this is for the lines themselves only - and the massive heavy silicones literally fill up the line, like pouring jello into them. The elastomer then forms a film on top so makeup applies smoothly over.
The claim is that once you give this filler 15 minutes to set up, you can fill lines 30% or so. I agree that it does this. Pat this on your naso-labial folds after your moisturizer and wait. The jello-like silicones will set firm in the bottom of your creases and the elastomer film will form.
Silicone-based makeup (almost any mainstream foundation) applies very smoothly over this - so you do get nice makeup application and your lines very temporarily appear less deep.
The silicones seem to last about 6 hours before the film breaks. And that's where it goes to heck in a handbasket. So you're wearing your 14-hour Teint Idole or whatever over this - when the film breaks, so does the "skin" of your foundation. It literally collapses into the fold at that time. So your 14-hour makeup becomes 6-hour makeup.
Further once the film has broken, it seems like the silicones "leak" or move out, and your face suddenly gets greasy at that spot. The whole look's just ruined.
If you want short-term line camouflage for a party or event, this could be good. But like Cinderella, you've got to flee before your 6 hours are up.
There are just as good silicone line fillers (MAC) that cost much less. I just don't understand why you'd spend so much on this.
The video on Brandt's website claims that with repeated use it actually permanently reduces the depth of lines and folds. No way, Jose. Don't be fooled.

Dr. Brandt's lineless lines no more filler & volumizer doesn't work. I saw no difference in fine lines. None!

I a 32 years old although I do not have many wrinkles I have quite visable frown lines. I have been using this product for nearly 6 months now and it hasn't make any visable change. The packaging is good and pump is good, and a little goes a long way. This product also absorbs very quickly.

Didn't work wonders like I thought and other out there better and a lot cheaper, would not but again.

waste of money, did nothing for me other than to cause me to break out and feel like a sucker. snake oil.

I went through 2 samples of this product before finally taking the plunge. This is a great anti-oxidant product for me b/c it contains alcohol which dries me up a bit, but that's ok b/c I'm super-oily. It also doesn't break me out. I haven't seen any *radical* improvements in my skin, but I see this as a preventative measure, not really corrective. My skin is feeling smoother, but it wasn't entirely rough to begin with. My only gripes are that it takes forever to sink in (it's kind of sticky), and the packaging is a clear plastic tube, which, doesn't seem logical to me. Isn't this sort of thing supposed to be kept away fr. light? I keep mine in one of my vanity drawers. I don't leave it exposed to light.

I'm still on the fence about the Lineless Gel, so for now, I'm going to play it safe and say I would not repurchase it (hey, prolly a fair estimation with it's nearly $100 price tag.) I like that it seems like it would be a fabulous product, but, as I haven't experienced any miracles yet, I'm leaning on the idea that perhaps it's all alot of hyperbole. I'll keep using up my tube and have hope that somewhere in the slightly tacky gel lies the secret to wonderfully firm and luminous skin.

I got a sample of this hoping it will be my HG antioxidant serum as it got so much raves. Unfortunately, this is not even close. I have sensitive skin and this doesn't irritate it. However, it is clogging my foreheads. I get 4 bumps on my foreheads just after 2 usage. I did continue to finish the whole sample thou, but it just keep getting more clogged. I think Dr Brandt products just don't agree with my skin. Moreover, I don't appreciate the texture and finish. By only one pea size each time, I can still feel that it is greasy and it don't sink in well, take way longer time than other serum I've tried. I don't appreciate its texture even 10 min after application. Will def not repurchase.

When I was filling out this review and it asked if I would buy this again. I struggled.
I do love it but the price and packaging are holding me back.
I got this free with an order I placed.
The results are fantastic. My skin is calmer and more even toned. However I find it hard to believe nothing else can do this for less. The package makes it difficult to pump product and the tube is huge so traveling with it would be interesting.
I'm trying EL Night Repair tomm & I'll update my review then.
UPDATE** - I'm put my 2 bottles up for swap. I was starting to get dry and realized how much alcohol was in this. I also broke out a little and I haven't broken out in months.

I was so lucky! I purchased a 4 oz. bottle of this wonderful product on ebay for less than $10.00. I also fell in love with the product after I received several samples at Sephora. It does leave my combination skin a bit oily, so I now use my CP serum during the day and my Lineless gel at night.

Another one of the wonderful products in this line.
"Concentrated levels of green tea, grape seed and natural botanicals hydrate and provide anti-aging properties for your complexion in a lightweight gel formula. apply to cleansed and toned skin. Can be used AM or PM."
I got 2 samples of this from the wonderful Josh at BG's and love it. I wear it under makeup when i go out it smokey environments. It's an excellent base, i have faith in his ingredients/formulation based on my experience w/ his other products there's only one problem, make that 2. It's $95!!! And two, it's in a clear container, isn't that not good for the active ingredients? Dunno, but i'll keep using this and check for it on ebay to buy it.
Update 4/28/03: Got a free full size of this in a promo, and i just LOVE it. I love to do 3 things with it. Prime my face before sunblock w/ it, giving my face a nice layer of anti-oxidents b/f the sun touches it. I like to cut my foundation w/ it, it's PERFECT for this. And i love to wear it alone in the evening for a glowy look. I got a free microdebrasion at Dr. Brandt counter, then i put this stuff on. For the next 5 days i thought i was a model. Okay, that's laughable, but that's how i felt. GREAT STUFF!!!! Skin is clear and looking fabulous.
