I am a 43 year old, Caucasian female, with light but not fair skin. I don't wear makeup. I avoid the sun. I have never smoked. I have never had acne. I generally have very good skin. I wash with a non-soap cleanser am and pm. Use a gentle exfoliating scrub pm. Use SkinMedica retinol in the pm (1.5 years so far). I use TNS Essential only once a day in the am and top it off with Anthelios moisturizer. That's the extent of my skin care regimen. Not very sophisticated or complex.

First, the good: I believe this product works, but within reason. It made my skin smoother, firmer, more supple and very fine lines and wrinkles disappeared. Overall, my skin seems to glow and definitely, in my opinion, looks young and healthy. When I don't use the product for a week or so (vacation, business travel [worry that it is too big to pass through security...imagine having to throw out something this expensive], waiting for a new shipment), I notice my nasolabial folds look a little deeper and the skin under my eyes is more textured. When I start up again, voila!, the glowing and well rested appearance returns. I can feel my skin tightening as the product is absorbed by my skin. If you have very deep wrinkles, significant sagging or a lot of sun damage, I don't think you will think this product works. It probably is working, but the results will not be dramatic enough to make a difference. I think it benefits very early signs of aging. May help reverse minor damage and slow down future damage. This is purely my anecdotal experience and is not based on any scientific research.

Next, general FYI: When I first used the product I felt a very mild heat sensation on my skin. Kind of like a mild hydroxy acid. Barely noticeable and not really uncomfortable.

I've used this for several months and then stopped because it was so expensive. I noticed alot of wrinkles coming back. This product changes the texture of your skin and makes it more supple and young looking. It just give you a dewey radiance. It visibly reduces fine lines and tightens your skin too. I've tried ALOT of products and this one makes the most difference. It's so darned expensive though. It works best if you use morning AND night. I tried to stretch it by just using once a day. Didn't work as well.

This is a handy guide for getting every drop out of the container. My husband broke off the top for me when I couldn't get anything out and I scooped out every drop into a small container. Just mix it up and remove with a clean, disposable applicator. You'll be shocked to see how much remains in the pump bottle when the pumping action stops producing anything.

I bought this at the recommendation of my dermatologist. I use it once a day in the morning, and Renova at night. I also purchased a Clarisonic facial cleanser. The combination of these 3 products have done wonders for my skin in just a couple of weeks, so it's hard to say if the TNS serum would have done it alone. I will continue to buy TNS for the time being, but am giving it 3 stars for two reasons: (1) It is extremely expensive and only contains 1 oz of fluid. The bottle size is deceiving, and makes you think you are getting a lot more than you really are. (2) I am exchanging my first bottle because the pump does not work properly. It simultaneously dispenses 2 lotions (an orange gel and a yellow lotion), which you're supposed to mix and apply. The orange gel only emerges about 10% of the time. They told me to "bump" or shake the bottle to get the gel to come out. Well, for $250 an ounce, I shouldn't have to do ANYTHING. It should just work! I think I have wasted about $60 worth of lotion at this point, just trying to get the orange gel to come out. Very disappointing engineering given the price.

The product I received was sold by IBI. I called SkinMedica and provided the lot number on the bottom of product to find out the expiration date - 7/31/2012. I would encourage all other buyers to do the same. An expired product is a less effective product. The lot number is printed on both the bottom of the box and the bottom of the actual product. SkinMedica's number is 1-866-577-3072 - when I called someone answered immediately; took me less than 1 minute to find out.

As others have pointed out, the product does have a foul smell. I haven't been using it long enough to testify as to whether it works or not. Will update review later.


Update - 3/20/13

I've purchased this item again recently, and again the seller was IBI. I called SkinMedica today with a product question, and to find out the expiration date. (I wasn't asked this time where I purchased, but if you call and are asked say you got it from a doctor. Companies are unlikely to be helpful if you admit you purchased from an unauthorized source. Common sense...) Expiration date is 12/31/14. This time the smell of the product isn't as bad, likely due to it not being old product. Hopefully that last purchase was just a fluke, and IBI doesn't normally sell expired product. Regardless of seller, I still encourage everyone to call to be certain you weren't sold old, expired product.
