If you are talking about the iS Clinical Youth Complex, I loved it! I usually use this product before going to be and rub it over my face and neck. My results showed about at the end of the two week after religiously putting it on all night. I found this product at SkincareMarket.net and seems affordable when purchasing from them

I like both the Youth Complex and the companion eye cream enough to keep buying them. These aren't miracle creams, but I do think they help with fine lines (esp on the outsides of my eyes) and generally keep my skin looking pretty good. I alternate the face cream with Retin A at night and use the eye cream 2x daily.

I'm making a review for the eye youth complex serum. I had used this for approximately two years and it really helps with any crows feet or fine lines. Definitely does diminish them and with continuous use will keep them away. I have quit buying this and now use NIA24 SSC for my entire face and eye area. The price became a burden when it came to buying both iS Clinical Eye Youth Complex and NIA's SSC, so one of them had to go!

This IS a wonder cream. I use the IS Youth Eye serum. It's the BEST eye product I've ever used. And I have tried just about everything. This is on the pricier side, although a half a pea size is sufficient for both eyes (I've had my bottle for about 6 months and counting). I use this a.m. and p.m. I also use TNS Essential serum. I think the 2 work well together.
My eyes have always been the area that bugged me most. I have an animated face, so smile lines set in in my mid to late 20s. Now, they aren't noticeable when my face is at rest. This stuff is a miracle cream, it really is.
The packaging is crappy though. After a month or so, the silver label starts to flake off and stick on your hands. Not a fun things when you're applying face products. I also hate how the manufacturers put these products in bottles that don't allow you to see how much product remains.
All of that said, I'm hooked for life. And I'm tempted to try the facial cream as well. I'm just hesitant to get hooked on yet another expensive product in my skin care regime.
Update: this is a bit of a shame to have to do on such a high end product -- but regarding the flakey labeling (which continues to be a problem) -- here is my solution.... I take heavy-duty (the stuff professional craftsmen use, not Scotch :)) tape and affix it around the bottle. It ain't all that pretty, but it works. Still love this product.

This is actually called Youth Complex, but I didn't want to do a separate review and confuse people. DAMN, this stuff works. My eyelids started getting thinner (Orbital Fat Loss) and when you're Asian and the eyelid delfates, it can create a crease which changes the whole shape of your eye. I think this problem happened partly from Latisse (Google Orbital Fat Loss, and Wikepedia brings up Latisse). I use the Youth Complex on my upper eyelid very close to the brow bone and it took care of the problem. Because the serum comes in a pump and more comes out than I really want, I put the rest on my cheeks. It REALLY plumps your skin your skin up wherever you put it. You can really hold off on fillers with this product. It is pricey, but WELL worth it.

I waited to write this review after using this for 6 months and it
definately works. I went on vacation for a week and forgot it at home and by the end of the week my skin looked horrible. This definately
plumps the skin and firms it. I love it!!!!!

This review is for the Youth serum. I got some samples and using it only for 3 days only. My skin is looking better. I am using it only for the night together with my moisturizer. In case I skipped the night cream after the serum, my skin was dry and flaky. Will came back later with updates.
UPDATE after 2 weeks: wow. This serum is working!!! My skin looks much better (was not bad before though), plump, glowing and even toned!!! Will by the full size definitely!!!

IS Youth Complex was suggested for me by my doctor, but I did not want to pay the price.($135.00) I did try the samples he gave me, and LOVED the product. I shopped around online and found the cheapest retail place was Boundary Waters.($104 or $104.50) Mine was purchased on Ebay for around $93.00. I have been using Youth Complex for three weeks and my skin is glowing. I have very few wrinkles, but the fine lines I do have plump up and are barely noticible. You only need to use very little product, and don't have to use a moisturizer afterward so I can justify the cost. At this point I will definitely buy again.

This product is expensive, so I find a way around that buy buying sample sizes on eBay (as I do with my Skinceuticals phloretin cf serum). I have used many, many "active" products over several years, and while many are nice, I rarely see real results. Well, I've been using this for 3 months, and my skin definitely glows more and is visibly plumper and smoother. I can't wait to see how it looks in 3 more months!
I'm sure the other products I use help, and I think they all work well together. I apply IS Youth in the AM after the Skinceuticals (I wait between applications). At night I use MUAC's glyluronic seum, which I also love, followed by whatever serum I have lying around. I also use simple moisturizer like Cerave, and a good sunscreen in the AM.
I recommend IS Clinical Youth if you have dry, sensitive, and/or thin skin. Try it for a few months before you make a judgment.

It isn't often that I throw a $135/bottle serum in the wastecan, but what else can you do with something that causes more problems than it helps? Every single time I use this I get a raging red pimple!!!! Not from purging due to retinyl palmitate in it, because I use Retin-A and I'm well past the purging stage with it. This stuff stinks too....like something musty and dank. It does leave a nice glow, but hours later-------->zits.
I just can't foist this off on anyone else...it's nasty. Out it goes.

Do I have alien skin or something? Why do these things work miracles for others and do less than zero for me? I have actually given up on finding a wonder cream now. They don't bloody exist. It feels nice and moisturising but always gives me nasty long lasting spots. I didnt realise it was this product causing the trouble and its so expensive but its much too rich for me.I was promised great things- ooh human growth hormone- my ass. I need to stop believing everything I read. Yet more expensive proof of how gullible I am. I gave it such a low score because of the high expectations I had for it and the fact you get so little product for such a whopping huge price.
Edit: 2/2/10- Funny but I just read Roccobalford's review of Creme de la Mer .. . as I was saying! I decided last year after having some filler that anti ageing creams are a bit of a waste.. Seems maybe a few of us are wise to this.

I don't get all the great reviews for this product. It is expensive and didn't give results any different than drugstore brands I have tried.
I agree that the claims the company makes about this product are way over the top. I wish I put it on and within minutes my crows feet were gone,lol!
I really wanted to like this product it just didn't do anything for me. It was a nice moisturizer but I wanted a little more than moisture.
I have to say for the money it was a dud!
Glad it worked for the rest of you ladies.

Amazing. This is the only company I know that will give you the studies behind the product. I have dumped all my products except this and the Active Serum. Had to get it from my doctor, but - it is well worth the trip.

This review is for the Youth Complex. I LOOOOVE it. I bought because of the great reviews and the Skincarex discount. I began using it and expecting it to suck as I haven't had much luck with "anti-aging" products. So after a week of using it, I looked in the mirror and saw my face about 2 years ago. I didn't connect it to the Youth Complex; I thought I was just having a good face day. Another week goes by and I realize I haven't had a bad face day. I look hot without makeup! I also bought the active serum (it came as a set). Since I wanted to experiment and see which worked better, I've only used the active serum once. The results are definitely from the Youth Complex. I'm so happy I bought it.

I really like this product. I alternate using IS CLINICAL with Jan Marini but the Youth...well I just haven't seen another product quite like it. It has really improved the few fine lines that I had, my acne and acne scars, and left my face firm and with a great glow. I purchased my IS CLINCAL products from agelessapple.com because once you buy your first IS CLINICAL product from them, you get great discounts. Will def. buy again.

Wow. Just plain wow. My skin look fabulous when I use this over my Vitamin C serum. Expensive? Oh yeah. But more than worth it. It will plump your skin immediately. Used regularly, you skin will look firmer, smoother, and with that special glow we all love. I'll continue to buy the stuff.

This serum is highly recommended! Based on the review below I ran out and purchased this to help give my turning 30 years old skin a boost. Before you all think that it is too young to be using a youth treatment, let me just first say that I have not been taking good care of my skin till recently so time has taken its toll on me.
I had noticed my skin becoming increasingly saggy, with enlarged pores, blotchy skin tone, and less responsive to moisturizers. Basically all the signs of aging. Have been using it for a week now, applying every night before bed, and see a significant difference. There is marked improvement even in such a brief time frame. Skin seems more firm, smooth, and completely hydrated. I also noticed irritated patches were soothed and not flaring red anymore.
I honestly believe this product will have continuous benefit from prolonged use. It was exactly what I was looking for. Extremely pricey, but still worth it in my opinion. About $150 USD for 1 ounce. Comes in a glass bottle with a dropper cap. Serum is clear, fragrance free, and feels cool upon application.

Well, first off, ignore all the claims that IS Clinical makes about this product - I happen to think it's a great product, but for some reason, they make claims that are just over the top. This company doesn't usually do that and I'm not sure why they decided to start now, but it's unfortunate, because it very well could sour people on what is actually an excellent product.
I use this in the am after my C serum and before I apply sunscreen and I must say, it really does have an almost immediate smoothing and firming effect. Having used it now for 5 weeks, there is no question that it is an effective treatment and that the effects of it are cumulative. My skin is much smoother, firmer, and resilient. It has a lovely feel to it and a very vague but nevertheless pleasant fragrance. The ingredient list is awesome.
The only drawback: like all IS Clinical products, it's very expensive. It is worth using your Skincare Rx discount for this. Also, keep in mind that a little of it goes a long way. No need to slather this on. With all that said, it is most definitely quite effective. Here are the ingredients:
Hyaluronic Acid, Vaccinium Myrtillus (Bilberry) Extract, Saccharum Officinarum (Sugar Cane) Extract, Acer Saccharinum (Sugar Maple) Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tripeptide-1, Asiaticoside/Asiatic Acid/Madecassic Acid (Centella asiatica Extracts), Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Panthenol (Vitamin B5), Soy Isoflavones.
