This product is nothing special
I’m a fifty year old woman and I have pretty good skin for my age. One of the reasons I do is because I eat well and I don’t put a lot of crappy creams on my face. I got this cream because I’m seeing some minor signs of aging and wanted to do something for it. Unfortunately, this cream has a sticky consistency and doesn’t absorb much into your skin. It just sort of lays on top. But as everyone ought to know, it’s bad for your skin to be covered with a cream or lotion that does not fully absorb, and then allow the skin to breathe. I used this cream for three weeks (reluctantly) and it did absolutely nothing. My advice would be: keep shopping. A cute jar and nifty pastel green color are not a substitute for an effective product, and I have neither the time nor the money to waste on gimmicks. I have to say, I don’t see why this product has such a high rating here on Amazon.UPDATE 1/22/12I did decide to go ahead and use up the whole jar, since I paid for it, and to give it a completely fair chance. I would say that the cream does soothe the skin somewhat and might have some effectiveness as a moisterizer, but it certainly doesn’t do a lot. I read over the other glowing reviews again and I would say they are definitely exaggerating. This cream is far from miraculous and I definitely wouldn’t buy it again. I’m going to try a more non-greasy, non-sticky copper serum next time.
I have not seen any difference. I have been using it for about a month. I will continue to use it until it is empty. Hopefully I will see results.
Osmotics Blue Copper is my new favorite face product
I have been using the Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Firming Elasticity Repair twice a day for 3 months now and I can tell a difference in my skin. The creases around my mouth and eyes are noticably less visible and my skin looks and feels great. The face and eye cream are spendy, but it’s all I use except for SPF sunscreen on my face, a little blush, and a little eye shadow. I use to spend a lot more on several different products, now it’s all I use. Amazon has a great price on the product and, with free shipping, you can’t beat the deal. Compare the price on other sites and you’ll know this is a bargain. If you like it, the larger jar is even a better deal. A tiny amount goes a LONG way.
Two stars for not causing any damage but not doing anything useful, either. My main impression of this stuff is residual stickiness and I noticed no change in my skin.
Not as advertised!
I had been reading the ads for this for two years, but didn’t want to spend the $85.95 on a product I had not sampled. Was happy Amazon had it for less, but I should have known that one product can never be the ALL to every skin type. After using for four days, I looked twenty years older! It did not firm, so my skin became saggy. My wrinkles all became prominent and my skin tone was dull. I went back to my REAL skin cream and some of the damage is gone. It has been some time since I encountered such a complete failure in a product, did not firm, did not make me radiant, did cause redness it was suppose to cure, did not make my skin so toned I could wear less make-up. The only use I found for it is a slight bleaching effect on dark spots, but other creams are more effective for that. I can only state that if the glowing reviews are from actual users and not the company, then I just had a bad reaction to something in it, or more likely it is for very oily skin which mine is not. If you decide to order be aware it is very drying.
FABULOUS! I LOVE THIS FACE CREAM!
Wow.I have to say that I bought this with a bit of a skeptical eye. I’ve spent tons of money over the years on facial products promising this and that, yet they never really produce for me. Amazingly, Osmotics Blue Copper DID give me incredible results after just the first application. I’m still a bit stunned. My skin feels AND looks so hydrated and smooth. My husband actually asked me if I had just given myself a facial, because my face looked “dewey”. ? lol He’s never asked me any such thing before…never even thought he knew I did facials. lol The best part was that he asked me this 12+ HOURS after I had applied the Blue Copper cream!After applying the cream, I didn’t even need my mineral foundation — which is saying a lot, because I rarely go without my BE mineral fdtn! I really am WOW’d with this product, as I had almost lost faith in copper products for my now more mature facial skin. I had been using Skin Biology products for years, off and on for over 10 years, but they seemed to work better for me when I had very oily/acne prone skin. Now, 10 yrs later, my skin is normal/dry, and I am not seeing the same results with Skin Biology. It seemed to work great for reversing sun damage and for keeping breakouts at bay, but now that crowsfeet and fine lines are threatening to creep up on my face, the SB copper products don’t seem as effective. I DO believe in copper products, so I am SO very VERY happy that I decided to give Osmotics Blue Copper a chance! I had heard of them for years, but the price put me off a bit (not sure why, as SB is pretty pricey as well).I LOVE LOVE LOVE Blue Copper! I can’t wait to see what progress I have in one month, 6 months, and in 1 yr! Amazing product!
Love this stuff!
I got some of this as a gift a last Christmas. I used it and could see an improvement in my skin after using it for a short time. I am on the second jar and this product seems to be helping with firming up my skin. Thumbs up!
Osmotics Cosmeceuticals Blue Copper 5 Firming Elasticity Repair, 1….
I read that copper peptides are excellent for older skin. I use it everyday with a good moisturizer! I am not sure whether its doing a lot, but I keep trying because a little is better than nothing. As we age, everything needs help, the lipids, the minerals the moisture, the collagen… One for the minerals!
Not For Me
There is nothing wrong with this cream,but it’s not for me. I didn’t see any particular benefit from it and won’t purchase again. My skin looked considerably better using previous products. I will use it up, but not on my face.The cream itself is a cute color, with a pleasant smooth texture and no particular smell.
just in case
According to a recent article copper is important in tissue repair and wound healing. I was surprised, but then my medical knowledge is sorely limited. Upon looking further, I came across this product from Osmotics, a company devoted to anti-aging skincare products and hair care.Several requirements are important to me in selecting a night cream. Obviously, I want it to moisturize and protect. Further, I want it to absorb so that I don’t go to bed with a “greasy” face, and I don’t want it to be scented.Blue Copper 5 filled all of my qualifications. In addition, it goes on smoothly and it only takes a wee bit for face and neck. I’ve been well pleased with usage as in the morning my face still feels soft and not at all dehydrated.Lately, I’ve begun also using it in the morning and find that since it absorbs quickly I can quickly apply makeup for the day.Also noted that it’s suggested for use after peels and lasers. To date, I’ve done neither but you never know!Ingredients include the following: Water, Sodium Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Isononyl Isononanoate, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Seed Extract, Sacharomyces/Copper Ferment, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Octyldodecyl Neopentanoate, Lentinus Edodes Extract (Shiitake extracts), Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Carbomer, Polysorbate 20, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Copper PCA, Propylene Glycol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.
Waste of money
Bummed this did nothing for my skin but make it break out. I have clear skin always. I was hoping to find a product that would help tighten my clear skin, not make it break out. Back to dermalogica and Image skincare! Glad I tried though.
