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!

Neat packaging idea but it broke quickly
The product is good, not too hard to apply with the sponge although it was interesting to see Dimitri apply it with his fingers. I really was intrigued by the packaging...seemed very unique and smart. However, after one use I could not get the package to reclose. I must have received a dud. Worth a try!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have wanted to try this for so long and always missed out because I wait too long and it sells out. Not this time when I saw Skinn products back at TSC I jumped on the chance to try this out. I love it and am wondering why it took me so long to try it. I have normal to oily skin and would do my makeup only to have the big oily face by the time I got to work. This is a great mattifier and kept my shine in check. Feels light on the face and an amazing result. I would give it more stars if I could.

Most amazing product!
from British Columbia
I cannot live without Plasma Flawless Finish!! Basically, it blurs EVERYTHING to make your skin look flawless and perfect. When I wear makeup, I use a primer before my foundation and even then you can still see fine lines and gigantic pores. I gently pat on the Flawless Finish with the sponge all over my face and it hides and blurs EVERYTHING. It is like pure magic! I have an oily t-zone so if I find I am getting shiny after a few hours, I pat this on, and it soaks up all the oil so my skin looks matte and once again, perfect. On days where I am not wearing makeup, I still pat this on to hide my enormous pores, blur away my fine lines, and keep my skin from getting greasy. I am a makeup junkie and I have tried everything from high end designer brands that cost BIG BUCKS to the low end dollar store brands. This is absolutely one of the best products I have ever used, hands down. I refuse to be without it. For the people who do not know how to use it: you can use it with makeup or on bare skin. Just remember to pat it on with the sponge, don't rub!

Using it but still not sure
from kitchener ON
I use it over my day cream, I am 70 and dont like to use a lot of makeup. I checked the video again to make sure I know what I am doing.In other words I kept it and still trying.
I keep trying
Like I said for the plasma foundation,this product takes some getting used to.I usually have no problem applying products on my skin but this one, I'm not sure if it's my dry skin or it's the way I apply it but I don't see a big difference or may I say it doesn't look as good as another brand bought at TSC for photo finish look. I'm not someone who gives up easy and it has been a good thing because I fell in love with a few products after trying different ways to apply that I wouldn't have if I had sent them back. I'm sure it is a good product. Just have to play with it and apply it the way it fits you. We are all different.
not for me
Although this product did give my skin a matte finish it did not provide coverage. I also found it very drying and felt uncomfortable on my skin.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This product is fantastic! Love Love Love it!Gives you that flawless look.I am 38 years old and I don't usually wear a lot of makeup. When I know I am going out and just running around and know I will be bumping in to people I apply this and it just gives me that boost I need. Great product would recommend, especialy if you have an oily T zone!
Great Flawless Finish
I've been using Plasma Flawless Finish for 2 weeks now and it really works. I use on clean skin or over makeup and it gets rid of the shine that can happen later in the date. I can use it after my yoga class and I don't have a gummy build up on my skin. Its a natural matting finish that just happens to reduce the look of large pores which I know I have but no one else needs to know. It makes my skin look fabulous for hours. I have recommended this to my best gal pals for a natural finish after their makeup. Its a must have product.
