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!

Geat natural product and great value.
Makes my skin feel soft moisturized and fabulous. If you look at the ingredients, the first one is cucumber not water. These products are high quality, natural, and not expensive, like all of Dimitri's products. You are not paying for mostly water. I like the fact that when on air he goes into detail about what his products contain, and why they work. He knows what he is talking about.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
A lovely addition for Skinn.

This is a well thought out line, 3 products providing excellent basic skin care for the most sensitive skin types. The packaging supports the concept also, with no contamination possible.I did feel that the size dispensed with each pump wasn't very accurate to how much was really requred-I think the serum and cream could be re-worked to deliver less.For my 65 year old skin, this is not the best match in terms of anti-aging, but supplemented with some other Skinn products it is perfect.For anyone with very sensitive skin you couldn't do better than this-top notch!

SKINN Skinnaturals Triple Relief System
By Newfy Pearl
Feels good. After one week you see what the product can do. You feel you are doing something good for your skin.I like the pump action as you are not dipping your finger into the product and possibly contaminating it. However I do not always get the same amount with each pump, and I wonder how much will be lost at the bottom or sides when the container is close to empty. No scooping around the jar to get every last drop here.I would recommend SKINN products in general, not necessarily this line. You use a little and it feels good. You do get your money's worth in the standard packaging.
