    I ordered Latisse and answered all the questions then was told if any other information was needed from me they would contact me. I received my American Express bill and I was charged the day I placed the order but ten days later I still hadn’t received and email stating the product was sent. So I got online and was told that it still wasn’t sent since they were so backed up. Also was told they needed a picture of me sent which I did the day I ordered. I have cancelled my order and requested a refund. They should not have charged my credit card until they sent out my order. Will order this product elsewhere.

    I recently purchased several Skin Medica products at the advice of my aesthetician. I am new to this product line. One of the products was Lytera Skin Brightening Complex. After using it 3 times, I accidentally knocked it off my counter and it split into two pieces. I called Skin Medica to see if I could salvage what was left of it and had the most disappointing customer service experience I have ever had. It was almost laughable. Won’t be using these products again in the future. Headed back to Skin Ceuticals. The take away is that you cannot use this product after it is exposed to air. So be very careful not to break it or you will also throw over 100 dollars away with the trash.

  3. Concerned...

    Was surprised to read the reviews saying “cut open the tube and squeeze out every last drop” and also “pry odd the top and ADD some water…” I like evryone else want to get every dime I am paying for, but I am afraid with these methods it will diminish or completely hinder the effectiveness of the ingredients! I advise no one follow the above advice!!

    I used Obaji for years and it stopped working for me. My plastic surgeon started carrying SkinMedica and ran a package deal for the TNS, Lytera, Tri-Retinol and sunscreen. It has been amazing and I can see it work in the last 2 months. The Tri-Retinol is much less harsh than using Obaji blender and Retin-A. I am super excited about rebuilding my collagen. My only complaint is the packaging for TNS. With a tube you can cut it and get every last drop out. I’m afraid there will be precious cream left clinging to the walls of this hard vessel that I can’t utilize.

    I just opened the TNS Essential Serum and used it tonight. It smells really bad, like REALLY BAD! is that normal?

    • Susan

      yes it does smell really bad when you first starting using it, after I while I found I liked the smell, weird right! But I definitely love what it did for my skin. I wish it wasn’t so pricey I would use it all the time!

    I purchased the TNS Essential Serum and the Tri-Retinol products. The Retinol was too harsh for me and made my skin worse. I stuck with it for 8 weeks and it never got better. The TNS product kept getting clogged and I never could get the serum to work after the first 2 weeks so it was a waste.

  8. Holly

    I was using the skinmedica tns essential serum last year but decided to use another range and have been having with their products. I did read online that retinol is good for the skin and the range I am using now does not use any retinol in their products. Does anybody know how skinmedica tri-retinol complex compared to prescription grade retinol products?

    Skinmedica Lytera is amazing. It works as well as hydroquinone but it is not as irritating. This was recommended to me when I was at Canyon Creek Plastic Surgery. I know the product costs $125 but if you buy a hydroquinone cream with kojic acid it costs around $60. That is cheaper but hydroquinone is very bad for your skin. It also causes a lot of irritation. Skinmedica Lytera feels more mild but it is as effective.

  10. Lily

    I can’t really tell if it’s doing anything but I figure it’s good for my skin since all the top plastic surgeons and dermatologists recommend SkinMedica. I use TNS Essential Serum and SkinMedica LYTERA Skin Brightening Complex. They are expensive but I need to look presentable for my profession.

    I have been using skinmedica since May 2013, give them time, they are truly the only products you’ll ever need!! Amazing results!!

  12. Erin

    SkinMedica TNS is awesome. I starting using Lytera and it isn’t as good as Hydroquinone but I see some changes after 8 months. Be careful with the auto rebill. It is a very expensive product, for my situation and the rebill can hurt some months.

    I am 52 years old and I have been using SkinMedica TNS system since it was first introduced to the market a few years ago. They are amazing products with all sorts of powerful ingredients. SkinMedica skin care is the best.
