Before starting Skinn Cosmetics, I worked for twenty years with the largest cosmetic houses in the world. I found myself constantly frustrated with the way they did business. Unfortunately, the big cosmetic companies never seem to care about making quality products that actually help the consumer. Their "formula" was always the same: make a cheap product, put it in a fancy jar with a nice box and charge as much as possible. After learning that I was never going to change how those big companies do business from within, I realized I needed to change the nature of the very industry in which they operate.
When I launched Skinn in 2002 the question most asked was "How are you going to do it Dimitri? How are you going to give us more products, better products, and keep them at a comparable price?" The answer was really quite simple. After working at the highest levels of the big cosmetics houses, I learned that the money they spend does not go into the product. In fact, it seems to go everywhere but the product: ad campaigns, department store counter space, Park Avenue offices, and, most of all, packaging. Believe it or not, most companies spend more money on the container and fancy boxes than on the product that's inside. I used to sit in meetings in those Park Avenue offices to talk about how to improve the company's products. Those meetings always seem to end the same: "Let's change the packaging." Upgrading the product was always deemed too costly as it would require re-educating the consumer about what constitutes a quality product. In essence the secret would be out that water does not have to be the first ingredient in every product.
Skinn offers its products only through televised home shopping, the internet and exclusive, privately owned spas throughout North America. This has allowed us to reach the maximum amount of people, while keeping overhead very low. We don't have expensive retail shops or New York office suites; you won't see costly magazine or prime time TV ads. What we do have are some of the finest cosmetics ever made. You'll see the difference!

This won over an entire family!!
I got this cream as part of a showstopper (I bought 3 to stock up) but had never tried the Collagenesis Youth Preservation Cream, and having read some reviews, was concerned that it would be too greasy for my oily skin. How amazingly shocked I was at how quickly this absorbed, both on my face/ decolletage, but in my cuticles. I then used it visiting family (left it there by mistake) and within the week, my sister, mother and 2 aunts were clamouring for it!! It' our family pick now. For literally all skin types (young or old) dry, sensitive or oily. It's a winner. Go get yours!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Cushiony soft and velvety to the touch
The review headline is what Dimitri promises and this cream delivers.
Wonderful facial product!
I use this cream morning and night faithfully. I just love it! Being in my 70th year, I need all the help I can get and Collagenesis does the trick. This cream absorbs immediately for me and does not feel oily at all. This is a winner for Dimitri!
This Is a Fantastic Product!!! WOW
I wanted to wait until I had used this product for a few weeks to month to gave my opinion on this product.Well I absolutely love it! I'm in my fifties and live in Toronto and now is the perfect time to use this wonderful cream. It goes on well and Hydrates my skin it feels sooo good. I use it at night and in the morning my skin is so soft and feels great! The cream doesn't feel greasy or heavy. I love the smell. Great Product!!

I have been using Skinn products for a few years and am on the third jar of Collagenesis 24 Hour Treatment. I use this product whenever my skin feels dry and it always hydrates my sensitive skin. I also use this on the back of my hands! A little bit goes a long way and the results are always fantastic. I do not "rub" the product into my skin, instead, I gently pat it into my skin for instant absorption. I will not use anything else on my skin! I LOVE this stuff!!
Fast absorbing, moisturizing
I have combination/oily skin that dries out in the wintertime somewhat. This was part of a showstopper, I use it all the time. You get a TON of product. I slap quite a bit of product on my face and neck, this absorbs quickly and isn't greasy at all. I do use a primer under my foundation which helps my make up last longer and does kill shine.

I can see why there are mixed reviews on this product. It is very rich and if you don't have dry skin, you may not like it. I have really dry skin in the winter and this cream is amazing. It is the only one that helps get rid of dry patches and I have tried so many expensive products that never give me the results my skin needs. I also have sensitive skin that can break out but this hasn't caused any rashes or break outs. It makes your skin super smooth and is such a relief for dry skin. A little goes a long way so it's worth the price. Thanks Skinn for another fantastic product that delivers results.
I bought this as part of the showstopper and used it twice. My face looks shiny and greasy and it made me break out. I am 61 years old and haven't had a breakout in 30 years. It doesn't absorb well at all and I would definitely not recommend it. It's going back.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

BEST CREAM EVER!!! :)))
from Comox, Vancouver Island
I try everything under the sun for skin, have normal skin and this product is: «:::A:::»✿«:::W:::»✿«:::E:::»✿«:::S:::»✿«:::O:::»✿«:::M:::»✿«:::E:::»I find a big difference the next day and it also does wonders for the lips and lip area...my hubby notices when I used it. I put it anywhere I can reach (well almost). Definitely would recommend men try this too. Thanks for yet another great product :)

This was part of a Showstopper as well and it wasn't until I read another review that I realised that this product does the same thing on my skin: it does not absorb. It actually feels wet and it is kind of a pain when I want to put makeup on and so I prefer to use it at night. I've also noticed that when I massage it on my face, my face begins to exfolliate. I can actually feel it. Whether it is dead skin or the moisturizer itself; I do not know but I have to make sure I rub it all off. I wonder why it does that? I would recommend it only for someone with dry skin. I'm in my 50's and I still have a lot of oil left in me, so I don't need such a heavy moisturizer.
