Honest reviews


Skin Medica TNS From

I saw this product on The Doctors TV show. They called it a breakthrough in anti-aging technology. I absolutely love it and have seen a big difference in my skin. It’s worth the money and I will continue to use it!

Feels good, but too soon to tell…

I have no problem spending obscene amounts of money on skin care products in search of that Fountain of Youth. So far I have been pretty disappointed. This product has gotten some pretty high level reviews and after careful consideration I purchased it. The packaging was legit, it was sealed, taped up and indisputably the authentic deal. It seems like some people have been getting questionable products out there. I was prepared to be bowled over by an ungodly stench, but it smells gourd-like, like a fermenting melon, not too bad.I’m definitely noticing my skin aging, loss of elasticity, enlarged pores, inability to retain moisture. I’ve purchased and used expensive products like La Mer, Shiseido even straight vaseline. I started using this a few weeks ago. I can’t properly describe the effect, but after putting it on, a bit of a tingle or sting usually accompanies it, but my skin feels protected by it. It seems to stay on the surface, and it feels binding. My skin looks smoother, plumper and seems to appear more wholesome. I don’t know if that makes sense, but I like the way it feels. I don’t know if the effects are lasting, but I’ll continue to use it up and if my skin retains a more youthful appearance then I’ll definitely buy more.I know some people are opposed to the ingredients, but seriously, cosmetics have a notorious past of blinding bunnies and torturing kittens. If this indeed is produced from the by products of circumcision then I’m glad some good can come of it. That is a procedure decided upon by parents, not aestheticians, anyways, placenta has long been used by hospitals to heal wounds and hasten healing. If you are morally opposed then do your research and make your own decision. I think this seems like a beneficial product and if I still like it in a few months then I may have found my magical Fountain of Youth product after all!

Uneven mixing of two products

(This is for the bottle that dispenses two products at once — a red gel and an opaque, white lotion — for the user to mix before use.) I used the other version of this product, which contained just the gel-like serum, and I swore I wouldn’t buy any more because of issues I had with the manufacturer and that particular vendor. But the aesthetician I go to recommended I try this, so I gave it a go. After four or five uses, however, the pump stopped producing the red gel. I don’t know whether it’s run out, or if there is an air gap that prevents the product from coming out, but it just doesn’t work. This was a waste of money. On top of that, the stuff smells like mouse urine.(Contacted seller, who told me to disassemble the bottle and prime one of the dispensers separately. I’m supposed to do this for a product costing $134? Ridiculous. One-star rating for the product AND the vendor.)

It works

I love this product. I works. I hate the price of course. In the past I have stopped using it and replaced it with cheaper products but I keep coming back. This product delivers beautiful glowing skin.

Very good product, just know your seller!

Skinmedica has some of the best facial products I have seen around in many years. Before trying this I swore by Obagi ( which I still think is great).The product has really made a difference in my skin, as it is plumper and just plain younger looking. I was so impressed, I went right out and bought their THS Essential Serum from my dermatologist ($250!). It is a dual pump dispenser that delivers a mixture of this product (THS recovery complex) plus APS corrective Complex) in the other chamber, all to rejuvenate the skin.I bought one of these on Amazon and I am convinced it is real, however, I have seen fakes out here.Anyway, be sure you get a fresh product by checking the expiration dates, and also be careful not to buy a a knock off. The prices on Amazon are $100 less then in my doctors office. Just buy smart. Use a trusted seller.If my review helped you, please click on “yes” below. Thank you. 🙂

Best face treatment

I worked with plastic surgeons for years and they love this product. The best product for mature skin and for improving your look.

Emma Belden, MS


I got mine straight from Skinmedica. This stuff is amazing. I don’t know how it works but after a few weeks my skin looked like it does after a hard core chemical peel. It makes my pores smaller, it clears up acne marks, I don’t think it makes breakouts better but they don’t last as long and the red mark from the zit goes away much faster using this. There is also just more of a youthful, healthy glow from my skin. I’m a white female 45 years old.

TNS Essential Serum – love it … have purchased three previous times

I can really see a difference in my skin. It doesn’t last very long even though I use only one pump for face & neck; so it’s rather expensive.

Tanisha Redkey, IN

Great deal on a great product.

After spending the better part of the evening reading the reviews of others I decided to risk getting a bad or fake product because I know Amazon stands behind purchases. And I can guarantee that the product I received was 100% authentic and fresh. I know that several companies list their product and distribute through Amazon and the company I purchased from was IBI. It was a couple bucks more than the least expensive option but they had very high customer satisfaction scores so I figured I was safe. I’m thrilled because I’ve been spending a fortune on this stuff for years….and I’m not in the economic range where I can easily afford to pay such prices for skin care, but the stuff is good enough that I’m willing to sacrifice to get it.I’m 50 year old, very fair skinned Caucasian woman, with dry and sun damaged skin. This stuff has been a godsend. Since I started using it people regularly compliment me on my skin. Do know that it takes a few weeks to begin to see the amazing results, and you won’t get the full results for several more weeks beyond that.I have seen some people complain about the packaging and the product delivery mechanism. Before using you must equalize the product in the tubes, to achieve this bang the top of the bottle on your hand several times before opening it and dispensing the product. The packaging is designed for you to go through this process so you get the perfect ratio of each of the two products on your face.

Skin looks plump and youthful

This is an excellent product that my plastic surgeon and dermatologist both recommend. If your skin is dry the Skin medica dermal repair cream is also excellent. I am 59 and my skin looks much more plump and youthful since I’ve been using this product. I would recommend purchasing it from a reputable source

Marina Lowake, TX

Expensive but great product.

Ah, that aging skin. My niece recommended Skin Medica products so I took the financial plunge and bought a few items. It took a few days for my skin to adjust but now I love how my skin glows, feels soft and looks. I will buy this product line again.

They are selling the real stuff here

I am almost 50 with sun-damaged skin with some sagging in the eye area, jawline, and neck. I was introduced to this product via a plastic surgeon, but paid $260. The product sold here is the same for $100 less.As for the results, they are unparalleled to any anti-aging product I have used. I noticed a difference after only two weeks. Where there was once loose skin was now firm., especially under my earlobe. After that time, I noticed that my skin was dryer than usual, so I warmed a small amount of coconut oil in my palm, then pumped some essential serum and mixed it. I always wear vinyl gloves, beforehand,, so the product goes where it is supposed to rather than being absorbed in my palm. After the fourth week is when I was getting compliments from people who don’t normally give compliments. My skin is definitely firmer and MUCH less puffy looking (salty diet). My jaw is much more pronounced and the "age rings" around my neck have lessened significantly.I use it as directed or twice a day. It does smell strange, so I mix it with a dab of fragrant cream.TNS Essential Serum works!

Great product and great price!

Best product out there to keep skintight, smooth and reduce fine lines. Great price on amazon. Regular retail is about 270$ in most spas…
