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 …

I didn't like this product because of the very heavy consistency and the open top jar packaging. I could only use this stuff at night because the cream was so thick and sticky. I didn't really see any improvements after use. Also Paula's Choice says the ingredients are not very concentrated and gives it a one star. I wouldn't buy again even though I love Skinceuticals as a …Read more

I really liked this cream and have incorporated it into my regular routine. The texture is great and it's not greasy at all, but provides a good amount of moisture. My skin always feels great and looks refreshed when I use it.

I'm not impressed with this eye cream. First of all, eye cream packaged in a jar like this goes bad and is less hygenic than eye creams packages in tubes or pumps. You're basically putting your fingers into the jar every day adding bacteria to it.

That said, this cream has a nice texture, but that's about it. I saw no impact on my eye area what's do ever.

Good product overall. I used a bottle every other night (alternating with Renova) and then followed it with the Dermal Repair Cream. I didn't think this was a life changer, but good enough for me to buy another bottle and give it some more time. As previously mentioned, the color, texture. Also you really need to use a moisturizer over it because the product itself is almost drying (esp …Read more

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 not impressed. This creme has a nice velvety texture and feels like it moisturizes and smooths the skin well, but that's about it. I saw no anti-aging effects at all after using it for several months at night.

I'd pass on this one -- at $160, its basically a fancy moisturizer.

I am not impressed with Prevage at all. The first time I started using this product, I applied it every other night and by the end of about 10 days had a horrible reaction.

My skin turned scaly and red with tiny bumps. It took about 2 weeks and an expensive facial to calm my skin down, and I gave up on the product vowing never to touch it again. My facialist wasn't surprised …

I should have paid attention to the reviews on this site! I've been using Neova Night Therapy (well reviewed) for a couple years but decided to try the Creme de la Copper (not as well reviewed) thinking it was a higher concentration of copper and may be better for my skin.

I was completely off -- this product didn't seem to do anything and after spending $102 on it, I miss …
