I spent a fortune on this product but sad to write it didn't give me the results I expected. In fact I always broke out a bit every time I used it. I still continued using the vitamin c+e complex hoping to see improvement,but nothing happened. At best it helped as a primer as my foundation blended well while using this. But l could still get those results with a less expensive primer.

It works!! My dermatologist recommended it to me for the dark pigment under my eyes. I baulked immensely at the price (he was selling it for $179) and I managed to score a travel size one on Ebay from the US for $40 including postage. I used this as much as I could through the day for about 2 weeks and I've already noticed the difference, its almost gone! I am so happy about this, under my eyes is my biggest downfall with the dark pigment and also some underneath dark colouring under my eyes, I am so happy that this serum has been able to fix one of the problems. I highly recommend trying to track down a travel size bottle on Ebay if you dont want to spend the big bucks and need only a small amount for a small area. I reckon I still have 3/4 of a bottle left of a 8.8ml size bottle and I have been using it sometimes 3-4 times a day.

I initially received a free sample of this serum from an aesthetician and promptly fell in love with it. I've used HA serums for several years, but the Skin Medica serum is different. It purportedly contains 5 different types of HA. I have definitely noticed that it provides more hydration and makes my facial skin feel smoother and look plumper, as though it were younger. Love! The texture of this serum is also different from others that I've tried--it feels a lot thicker, yet it's light. My skin drinks it up and instantly absorbs it. Yes, the full size is pricey, but IMHO, the result is worth the price. Plus, as another reviewer indicated, a little bit goes a long way.

My new hg! I rann out of this some time ago and decided not to reorder because I mistakenly thought that I could manage without it. I tried other products that were less expensive but found them to be "not as effective" as this retinol complex. I am 49 and have had oily skin ALL life. A fact that I used to bemoan, but have since come to appreciate. As we age menopause becomes a huge factor in the day to day. Due to hormonal changes my skin has become dry on some areas of my face. Surprisingly so!The new products that I was trying simply didn;t cut it. So, I decided to bite the bullet and come back to my trusty Skin Medica Retinol Complex 1.0. And I am so glad I did! The dry patches are nearly gone after only 2 uses. I will never be without this again. Not too strong. Just strong enough to get the job done. Lesson learned. Yes! Its a bit pricey. But the benefits are far and away, worth it!

Very much like this cream. It's a nice consistency for winter -- moisturizing, instantly makes my skin feel soft but not overly greasy. It's definitely a night cream, as I think it would be too much grease for the day. I use it over retina A or over TNS Essentials Serum on alternating days.My only gripe is that it comes in a jar, so over time, it's easy to get germs in the container. Would have much preferred a tube or some kind of pump.
