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!

Great product - I use it regularly with noticable improvement. My only problem is that you cannot reorder just the Collagenesis Deep Line Erasing Serum(mine did not come with the tip shown) and Collagenesis Line Peel Solution without getting another Sonic Infuser, power Adapter and infuser tip. Please make the Line Erasing and Line Peel as a duo package. Thanks
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Lots of use for me!
from Leduc, AB
I would have given this product a 5 rating had it shown any significant improvement on my forehead wrinkles after regularly using it for a month. But I can't seem to see any yet and I have run out of the erasing serum and I am not sure yet if I should reorder this if it gets offered separately. It has simply worked for me, as a primer to temporarily cover a bit of my lines.However, I am giving it a 4 rating because of the infuser gadget which has tremendously worked well together with other products, inclusive of Skinn's, that I use on my face such as rejuvenating masks, lifts and moisturizers. When I apply these and use the infuser, I find that my skin absorbs them better giving me better results as compared to when I did not use my treatments with this infuser. So, to me, I feel I have invested well on this gadget! I have had no problems also when it comes to charging the infuser. After I charged it the first time, I have not charged it yet again. But I am not sure if the erasing serum bottle really had 15 ml in it, as it ran out too soon. This is really my first time to use some of Skinn's products after hearing all the sales pitch for months each time it is featured on TSC and I am hopeful and looking forward to more results!
My number 11 probably too difficult
from West Vancouver
Firstly, I love Dimitri's products, buy them often, and believe in him.I've had 11s between my brows since my 30s (for decades). I've worked on them for about 8 years and they're still there. They mentioned the product's success on 11s, so thought I'd try.Because of all the other things I've tried, I wasn't overly hopeful ... perhaps I didn't try long enough. In the demos, improvement is seen immediately. I had hoped for even barely visible improvement, but there was none at all after one use, so I returned it.I liked the design, usability, and products that came with. Even if I had had to recharge with every use, it wouldn't have been a problem, if I had seen improvement.
Sadly, I had to send it back
The sonic infuser does a GREAT job pressing the product into the skin. However, it won't hold a charge long enough to use it twice. I had to leave it plugged in, charging, all the time. If it is like that right out of the box, how long before it stops working altogether? I was very sad to return it, but I don't have any confidence that it will last.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

If you do not have it yet go grab it!
from Winnipeg Manitoba
10 from 10 pleas make Collagenesis Deep Line Erasing Serum (15ml/0.5oz)• Collagenesis Line Peel Solution (15ml/0.5oz) As a parcel alone for people that already have the machine
Good Product ...but
I purchase this set and has help with my deep lines. But need to reorder the deep line (which did not come with the applicator that was shown)and peel products but cannot see them on the list unless you buy another sonic infuser.
Good Product but....
Purchase this set - is working on my deep lines but I went to purchase the deep line erasing serum (which mine did not come with the applicator shown) and the line peel solution but are not sold without purchasing another sonic infuser.

I've been using this gadget for a month with little to no improvement. I've found that the wrinkles around my mouth look less deep immediately after treating them but within an hour the improvement is gone.

Just in time
from FORT ERIE
I have deep lines on upper lip and corners of mouth from smoking during my younger days. Also deep marrionnette lines. I thought there was nothing that would help these, but I ordered this to try. It was back ordered for at least a month, and during the wait, I also developed this extra pouch off one of the sides of my mouth!When this gadget arrived I attacked the pouch with extra vigorous intentions, and also the other areas. I do have small lines around my eyes and between my brows, but not much.I am happy to report that the pouch is GONE, and the upper part of the marrionnette lines is flattened, I am relieved and actually extatic about that. It was very aging.The lines on upper lip may have improved, but I am not sure. Same for the corners of the mouth.BUT I ALSO USED IT ON MY JAW LINE AND IT HAS IMPROVED. YAY!I was not expecting that. I use the Collagenisis collection of creams and serums anyway and this device seems to give at least a temporary additional lift, so I am keeping it. The serum included is now in a squeeze tube, so that issue has been fixed. I will keep working on the all the other lines. One thing I did do was I used it on my lips themselves and I think it plumped them up significantly, so maybe others could try that and see what happens.
Help for the upper lip
By MAUREEN J.
I purchased the Collagenesis Deep Wrinkle Protocol to work on vertial lines beginning on my upper lip. I have been pleased with the results. I have used it four times.
