This was just okay for me. I have certainly tried other serums that were of better value & created far better results for the money. Highlighting the good things about this serum is easy, it did not break me out and that says a LOT. It was hydrating although it goes on almost oily/shiny like so you have to make sure to have a bit of time to allow soaking in, after that there was no oily feeling or residue left so I thought that was a huge plus. I have combo skin & it hydrated well, not sure how it would do with oily skin. This product did absolutely nothing for changing skin tone, pores or wrinkles and that is the only reason I would not purchase again. Sure it hydrates, but it does nothing else a good moisturizer wouldn't do. So for the price on this one, no way!

I purchased a 4oz bottle because it was the best value size. One pump of the serum covers my entire face. It spreads evenly and takes less than a minute to fully absorb into my skin. It does not feel greasy or tacky, my skin does feel hydrated after the application. I do apply a night cream over the serum. Application of the second product does not result in pilling. I believe this serum helps to hydrate my skin. I believe it really helps to renew skin, the retinol does an excellent job creating skin cell turnover. I will continue to use this product not just for the hydration benefit, but more for the benefits of the retinol - so effective, my skin texture has dramatically improved. This is the first retinol product that does not adversely affect my sensitive skin. The ingredient list is impressive. The 4oz. size is the best value, but is not good for "carry-on" travel. Unfortunately, the smaller sizes of this product are even more costly. When QVC offers Dr. Denese TSV, it is the best value. Otherwise, register at the Dr. Denese website. The site periodically emails some special offers and does provide free shipping w/minimum purchase. Dermstore and Skin Store websites now carry this line, they too periodically offer discounts to those registered on the site.

Love love love this product!!! Cannot use on oily or normal skin, just on eyes & it's fantastic in the eye area. So moisturizing! Cannot live without it

This is a staple for me - it is the best I've found for adding moisture, smoothing skin, and prepping for makeup/treatments. I got Dr. Denese's book from the public library - interesting tips and recommendations there from diet to skin care. I know it's pricey, but worth a lot more than buying cheaper stuff that doesn't provide consistent results.

Hello. I found a 5 pc set on Craigslist for $50 bucks. It had 60 firming facial pads, Wrinkle Rest Exoression Line Peptide Concentrate, Hydro Shield Ultra Moisturizing Face Serum, Baggage Lost Puff Reducing Eye Gel & Hydro Shield Body Serum. The facial pads are fabulous! I only use them once a week at night. I love the wrinkle rest. I use it on my forehead only and it's awesome! The face serum is oily so I only use it in my eyes every night & it's great. If I wake up with puffy eyes I use the baggage lost. I use the body serum on my feet & put socks on them. Great products. I always shop on Craigslist. All products were sealed in the book like box. All products were full size & will last a long time.

I know I'm still relatively young to be using retinol, but I want to tame the.signs of aging early. This product feels slimy on my very oily skin, so I use just a small amount. Don't much care for the texture, and I don't get the velvety matte finish it boasts. But since it was so crazy expensive, I'm going to keep using it until it's gone. Gonna find a different retinoid after though.

After seeing Dr. Denese on PBS I became very interested in her products, all aimed at correcting aging skin. I bought from her site the glycolic acid pads and this serum, and I use at night the EL night repair with Retin A. My skin looked pretty good with just the EL and retin A, but I was not exfoliating and the EL, which until I got this product I also used in the AM (it's amazing stuff) has absolutely no moisture, it is water based. This serum is not water based and gives me enough moisture in the AM, followed by Kiel's sunscreen, somewhat moisturizing, to not use a seperate mositurizer. My skin really loves the Dr. Denese serum and Facial glycolic pads. I see fewer lines as there seems to be a plumping effect from the serum and it is so beautifully hydrating that it has allowed me to cut out one of my morning products, the straight on mositurizer. I have found since that the products are better priced on the QVC site. Highly recommend at any age, start using a serum before I did, my late 40's!

I really like this stuff. But a 2 oz bottle is $125!!!!!! Granted I just swipe the outside of the glass eye dropper and use on my whole face, eyes, and neck...Still the price bothers me. But I have desert dry skin and this does seem to form a barrier between me and dryness. I only like this packaging. The four ounce size comes in one of those awful pump things that I think waste product.
Never had any issues with irritation etc.

I purchased this because of a good recommendation from Paula Begoun and there was a deal where you got this product and the peel pads for $38, which is a pretty good deal. This product hasn't broken me out, which is surprising considering how much silicone is in it (my skin doesn't like silicone). But that's really the onlu good thing I can say about it. When you first apply it, it's slippery and downright greasy feeling (some people call this "velvety") and your face feels like an oil slick for about 15 minutes after you apply it. Then it absorbs and your face feels dry! How can this be? So strange. I can't stand that greasy feeling and even worse is the fact that it does nothing, including moisturize my skin. And the packaging is ugly and feels cheap. So I will not repurchase and I can't recommend because it's too greasy for people with oily skin and it's too drying for people with dry skin.

I have been dying to try this product but couldn't stomach paying $50 for half an ounce! I found a trusted seller on Ebay and bought it for around $30, much more tolerable. This stuff feels amazing on the skin. Its a very moisturizing yet not thick at all serum that sinks right into the skin in a matter of minutes to give a matte finish. I have normal/dry skin but I would almost venture to say that those with normal/oily, not super oily, could use this as well. This stuff is heaven around the eyes and works as a perfect base for my sunscreen which is either the Serious Skin Care C-cream SPF30 or Dr Denese Day Defense SPF30. I see what all the hype is about, it makes my face feel soo smooth and hydrated! It didn't work on the two incredibly dry patches under my mouth from my Retin A but I'm sure it didn't hurt either. Love Dr. Denese and seriously think she has some of the best skin care out there.. wish other non-QVC watchers would be exposed to her items because I know they would love them too! If you can find a trusted seller on Ebay, I would opt for getting it there. One complaint. I don't like pump applicator products. I feel like there is way more product that always gets left in the tube after the pump stops dispensing it. I am not sure if I would like that dropper I've seen but it can't be any worse. Thank you Dr. Denese for another awesome product.
