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 is my go to product. It is all I need after the skinn cleansers, which by the way are the best also. It does have a moisturizing effect and I do not need another one as I find them too heavy for my skinn. I also use the vitamin C ampolues. I love the product so much that I bought 2 showstoppers on auto delivery as I use them morning and night and anytime during the day if I should wash my face again.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

2nd bottle and ???
I am on 2nd bottle of this serum and have used it day and night. To date, there is no visible difference in firmness or lifting of the nasal labial lines. Very disappointed and will return this 2nd bottle. Better use of my money is buying Shinto Wrinkle Erase. It really works with VISIBLE difference in diminshing & lifting of the nasal labial fold!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I love the way this feels, and it goes on smoothly and fits perfectly into my routine. Just wish it was a little cheaper. But great stuff nonetheless.

I would not buy this product again.
By Young 4 Ever
I got this product last week. I find it is more like a moisturizing cream than a serum. A small amount does not go a long way. It gets absorbed real fast into the skin and there is a floral scent to the serum. My skin has broken out with two pimples since using this product. I thought I'd try something different and stray from my usual line I purchase through the Shopping Club "Elizabeth Grant"...there is absolutely no comparison. I would not purchase this product again.

the best ever
from Barrie Ont
The best serum I have ever used The results are amazing, as is all the Collagegenesis line.I worked in the beauty industry with most of the big names, I am 64 & my skin has never been better. Thanks Demitri for bringing us such great products at such good prices but more importantly products that really work.

I purchased 2 bottles when they were in a show stopper package. I used them both and have seen no improvement. It smells nice and is not oily but it has not helped my skin any.

I have been using this serum twice a day for a month, my skin looks the same as it did a month ago. All hype and no results!

This is the best serum that I've ever used. It gets absorbed by the skin very well and is not oily. you only have to put a little and it can cover your whole face.

love it: perfect texture, scent & works!
By CELESTE EDEN
This smells so good i want to put it all over my body!this is thinner texture, liquidy, but that is good becuase it allows you to put on a thin layer that absorbs quickly with a velvety finish. it absorbs 100%.this is the best thing ive put on my face in 15 years. i love it!!!

This product makes an incredible difference in the moisture level and firmness of my skin and I saw the difference within 3 days! Usually in the winter my skin gets dry and flakey but not since I've used this product. My skin is moist, firm and smooth! Love it! Love it! Love it! [...]
