It's been officially two weeks of using this product so I believe I am in the position to write this review. I'm lazy when it comes to writing reviews so I tend to avoid them regardless of how I feel about the product but this left such a considerable impression on me I couldn't not tell the internet about my experience. I am so happy that I bought this product. Before purchasing this cp serum I did EXTENSIVE research because I heard some real horror stories about this stuff and what it had the power to do to your face; both negative and positive. A little background on my skin. I had abused acid peels and exfoliation products for years because I thought my thick skin could handle it and I loved the cosmetic results. Wrong. I ignored the obvious signs of inflammation in my skin and to make matters worse I attempted an at home light tca peel to address my shallow scars. Thankfully my skin healed up okay but that about thinned my skin down so significantly to the point that after that peel I could not use any of my beauty products on my face without breaking out or irritating my skin even further. My eye area also started to appeared sunken as if I had lost fat and collagen.my skin was just not the same anymore and I was devastated. I had to switch over to all natural products and start eating cleaner and let my skin rest. Even being out in the sun when I forgot to wear sunscreen made the texture of my skin worse. I battled a facial rash for months and when that finally cleared up. I was left with scarring all over. I couldn't treat the scarring because I still had small active breakouts. It was a torturous cycle and I hated looking at myself with and without makeup and I'm only 21!!!! Fast forward. It's a year after the peel and I had been reading testimonials, reviews and doing on and off research about Dr. Pickart's copper peptides and their magic on scarring, building collagen and evening up skin texture. I eventually weighed the pros and cons and made the decision to buy their mildest cp serum because I felt that they couldn't do much harm if my skin rejected them. AFTER THE FIRST USE THERE WAS A NOTICEABLE DIFFERENCE. Which makes me believe this is some strong stuff because I diluted one drop of this serum to ten drops of water. I used it only 3 days a week and I spaced the days out to make sure I didn't overuse it and get the "uglies". I use a gentle bha/aha exfoliating facial cleanser at night before bed and a tea tree cleanser in the A.M because the golden rule to using this stuff is that you MUST exfoliate dead skin off because the peptides are rebuilding new skin. I eat a ton of vegetables/fruit and drink a ton of water so this helps the process tremendously. ALSO NEVER FORGET YOUR SUNSCREEN. By the end of the first week I couldn't believe my eyes. My sunken eye area was filling in. My skin began to look and feel thicker and my skin tone was evening out. I was getting super excited!!! So I decided to take it a step further. I chose a day to whip out my trusty 1.5 dermaroller and I rolled over this really old and ugly scar on my hip and applied the serum undiluted. The very next day the raised 15 year old scar flattened and slightly shrunk in size. It looked so much better and I literally could not believe my eyes; because of the positive reaction the scar on my body....I decided to dermaroll my entire face and apply the serum slightly less diluted this time using 3 drops of serum to 9 drops of water. After I applied the serum I topped it off with emu oil to push it further in my skin. My face was so red and the serum stung. I thought maybe I just made a huge mistake. I went to sleep and when I woke up the next morning once again I couldn't believe my eyes. My scars and discoloration were 80% less noticeable and my skin was GLOWING. I was so happy with what I saw I decided I didn't actually need to wear makeup because I didn't feel ugly. THIS STUFF WORKS FAST! My eyelids are less sunken and the few pimples i did have left are gone. I literally cannot believe my eyes and I am so happy. Anywho I finally look my age again and I do not plan to use this more often than I already do or undiluted on my face anytime soon. I don't want to ruin my progress. I seriously would not recommend this for ppl with minor skin issues because this is for damaged skin! Don't mess with your skin if it's already in a good place! I won't make that same mistake again. I will update in two weeks with more results. At this rate all the scars on my face new and from my childhood will be gone. This stuff is a godsend for those who's skin agrees with it.
