I am so happy that I decided to try this. I had been using TNS recovery serum, but decided to give this a try. It feels so good on my face and eliminates using two products. Now I only have to use one.

This is the best cream I have found. I have been using it for over 2 years and my skin has improved remarkably.
Posted 4/4/2015 by ShoppingMad
Bought this based on the reviews and it really does work. I'm 58 and although expensive, I can see a difference as can others. I have good skin, but have already received compliments from others on my skin. It is easy to use, doesn't irritate my sensitive skin and I have no problem applying moisturizer or makeup over this serum. Best part, though, is that it delivers great results.
Posted 4/4/2015 by Lv
I returned the product because I am already using Skinceuticals C E Ferulic acid serum. This product contained vitamin C E which was too strong for me and actually caused a reaction. I finally peeled 18 days later and my skin is finally silky again. I purchased the TNS recovery complex instead. I am still deciding if I love it !!!
Posted 4/1/2015 by Debbie
This is an excellent product to add to your skin care regime. I have used off and on for 4 years. I definitely can tell a difference when I do not use it. It is expensive but with SkinCare RX 's promotions, it makes it affordable.

Excellent product! Tightens the skin and improves texture of your skin as well. Pricey but worth it!
Posted 3/13/2015 by liz
I am totally addicted to SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum and have been for years. Couldn't do without it! My skin is really good and people mistake me for being years younger than I am. I usually buy 2 at a time when the sales are particularly good. One lives in my gym bag and the other stays home for AM & PM applications. Fabulous product!!
Posted 3/12/2015 by Michelle
So I finished the whole bottle. As another reviewer mentioned, I ran out of one side (the pink side) faster than the other, but the other side was only 2-3 days behind, so not a problem for me. In terms of effects, I think it helped with overall tone and texture, and softened some lines on my forehead and the fine lines around my eyes are nearly resolved completely (honestly, I have to look reaaallly close to even see them anymore). I was hoping for a more dramatic effect on my forehead, but I think those probably just need a filler.
This isn't moisturizing at all, and it's not supposed to be, but not drying either; I have dry skin, so needed a moisturizer on top.
I think some complained about the smell but I was fine with it; very subtle.
Didn't break me out or give my sensitive dry eczema skin prone any problems.
Verdict: I'll probably purchase again, because I like the idea of having the antioxidants and growth factors in 1 treatment, and my skin didn't seem to mind it (ie... no adverse reaction) and it did improve overall tone and texture and helped with some fine lines.
Skin Medica TNS Serum
Posted 3/6/2015 by Krisstina
I'm not great at reviewing products because I can't say I ever notice a 'dramatic' difference when I start using a new product. With that said, I am going to give the TNS Serum a 5-star based on the fact that my skin feels great and at 45 years old, I receive compliments on my skin regularly. I'm told quite often that I look to be in my 30s -- I'll take it! :)
I recommend this product with the brightening serum. The combo seems to work well together for aging skin.
Like this one

I have only bee using the product for about 10 days so I have not seen huge changes. I do feel my skin is a bit firmer after use. Will continue using.

I use a lot of products but, this is one of my favorites. It's expensive but lasts a long time.
Posted 3/3/2015 by Pat
Love this product. The only problem was that one serum ran out before the other. So I am still using just the one serum. I ordered another product and hope this does not happen again.
Posted 3/3/2015 by J
I have moderate to deep wrinkles and my dr. told me to try it morning and night for a week and my husband said the lines in your face are softer and not as deep. It's true. I don't spend this kind of money on anything but this is working better as time goes on. I budget this in to keep the lines away. It really works.
Posted 2/26/2015 by Lea
I am using this product for anti aging benefits...this is one of my my favorite skincare products. A little squeeze goes a long way!
Happy so far, but.....
Posted 2/25/2015 by lclark
I love it so far. I have pretty oily skin but also want to use some type of anti aging. Seems like I have spent the past 20 years trying to find the magic potion that will control acne and oil, but then as I get older, make me not look old! I took the plunge and paid the huge expense and am crossing my fingers. The downfall is for the price, you only get 1 oz. I like it so far but if I don't see a significant improvement by the end of the bottle, I will not spend that over and over again.
Posted 2/24/2015 by dlbrock
I've been using the SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum for several months and have noticed changes in my face and neck area. The smell isn't all that pleasant, however, the results are by far.

Posted 2/4/2015 by Diana
I started using this serum when my husband had a good job and after he lost his job I switched to cheaper brands
Not only did my face either break out or look worse my pores were enlarged and I felt I was aging faster
I started a part time job and the first thing I did was buy this
I have gotten compliments from everyone
My pores are smaller my face is radiant and I looked ten years younger
It's pricey but worth every dime
I didn't try out the drugstore brands but the so called dermatologist brands and they were pricey too and did nothing for me
I would recommend this to everyone. It does it all
Bottle lasts almost six months

Posted 1/25/2015 by Rebecca
Goes on smooth, not sticky or greasy, and fully absorbs into skin. I love Skin Medica and use much of the line in my daily regimen.
This product is effective, and as with anything, needs to be used consistently and over time for best results.
It really works.
Posted 1/22/2015 by LB
I was hoping that this product wouldn't work because it is so pricey, but I am hooked. My skin has never looked better! My aesthetician is a little bit upset because I haven't needed to come in for my regular appointments. I only use one pump and that covers for me. That is how I make it last longer.

After I started using this serum I had a noticeable difference in my skin. My friends even asked me what I was doing differently. I use the whole SkinMedica line, but love this serum.
Posted 1/17/2015 by Chicette212
I used Skin Medica TNS when it was just the serum and you had to moisten your face and spread it on your skin, then let it dry. The inclusion of the lotion with the serum makes the application so much easier. The somewhat distasteful smell is still there, but as in the past it dissipates fairly quickly so not really a detriment. I just think that this serum is a miracle. I've only used it for a couple of weeks and my skin already looks better. At 67, that is a miracle for sure. Now if you can just get rid of that smell . . .
Posted 1/15/2015 by RK
One of he best serums I have ever used. Only drawback is the price.

I have used TNS Serum but not the Essential Serum. I can't believe I waited so long to buy this!! It is so easy to use. I can feel a difference in my skin after just one week. It is more expensive, but the sales at SkinCareRX always make it affordable. (plus you get loyalty rewards too.) I use the palm of my hand instead of the back to help make it last longer.

Can't say enough about this product.I just received my second bottle of TNS and my skin is already seeing great changes. Sun spots are becoming lighter, texture of my skin is so smooth, love the scent, it's so creamy and one pump does the trick. If you are not sure about buying this product, do your skin a favor and it will love it and so will you.

I have used TNS Essential for over a year now. This is the absolute best serum I have ever used. It is pricey but well worth it. I too use the palm of my hand instead of the back of the hand for mixing. If you use only in the morning the product will last longer...about 3 months.
Will buy again, and again, and again

Love, love, love tis product. Have been using it religiously for about a year. Bottle lasts a long time. One pump, all over your face. I put the product on the palm of my hand, mix together and place over entire face and neck. Seem to get more from it than pumping onto the back of the hand as suggested.
Love the product, but beware the package!
Posted 12/18/2014 by Siscokidfl
I purchased this from Skincarerx as a back-up to the one I bought from my dermatologist. I was using the original one each night, but ordered from Skincarerx because the price was so much better. (I loved what the product was doing by the way) Long story short, when I got around to using the TNS ordered from Skinmedica, the product dispensed from only one side after about two weeks. Skinmediica gave me suggestions to help, but they did not work...and by that time (30) days...they would not do anything about the defective package. So a CAUTION, use yours right away so that you know there is a problem.
You cannot get the benefit if you only get half the serum!
Great for aging skin
Posted 12/17/2014 by kimmie
It is hard to find a product that actually reverses the effects of aging, but I feel like this product has done that for me. I have used it for a couple years now and it has improved my skin's pigment, wrinkles, and elasticity.

Posted 12/9/2014 by Heather
I am a 43 year old with pretty normal skin but I'm starting to get more wrinkly around the eyes. I got this and figured I'd try it for the 90 days upon the recommendation of not only my dermatologist but my mom's as well. I can definitely tell a difference in my eye area wrinkles and I've only been using it once a day at night as my dermatologist also does herself. I have recently repurchased even though I have had my original bottle almost four months and I would guess there is about a third still left.
Posted 12/5/2014 by Rachel
This stuff changed my skin, as well as my husband's. People constantly comment that he looks younger every time they see him. It's non-irrtating, doesn't smell bad, and is easy to apply. It's expensive, but worth it.

I've been using TNS Essential Serum for about 2 years now. I use it only at night (can't afford to use it twice a day). Occasionally I'll go without it (while waiting for a sale). This stuff is magic for my skin. It keeps it balanced and tone and keeps wrinkles at bay. I notice the difference when I don't use it. This truly is essential - the only serum your skin needs.

I've been using TNS Essential Serum for about a month now and I am amazed at the difference in my skin!!! My "old lady" spots are fading, my skin is clearer and blemish free!

I think this product will be a part of my life forever!!!

I've been using Skin Medica TNS Essential Serum for months and have noticed how my skin is glowing. The odor isn't too pleasant however, it's the end results that matter the most. I am a former Obagi gal. Since my dermatologist's office sells Skin Medica, I decided to switch. My regimen does include other products, but this particular serum is my morning item and three nights weekly. I am 64 years old and people think I'm in my early 40's. That's a good thing, don't you think?

I like the smell, I like the way it goes on, I like that I'm getting so many products in one, I like that I my acne prone skin does not break out. I have used many skincare products, and systems over the years and nothing works better than this stuff. I see tighter, smoother,more even skintone. Even better, OTHER people notice - they ask me what I am doing. It is worth every penny. I've left Obagi for Skin Medica almost entirely. I Obagi wash and tone then follow with Skin Medica TNS Essential Serum then Skin Medica Lytera. Still like my Obagi sunscreen best too. I even use the TNS under my eyes in my daytime application. You will never look back and SkinCare RX lets you try with a 30 return policy, nothing to lose but a decade off your face!

I have been using this product for years and it truly makes a difference. I'm 45 and used to worship the sun when I was younger. It's a bit pricey, so I only use it at night. It's really changed my skin tone, improved my age spots, and plumps up my skin. I use it on my face and around my eyes,
Posted 9/6/2014 by Gigi
This is the best product I have ever used! I noticed a difference in my skin within one week! It has helped my acne, aging skin and pretty much everything it says it does! I don't think it smells bad like another reviewer says. Make sure you keep the pump primed by keeping it upside down. Not crazy about the 2 chambers also since you do not always get the same amount of product out of both chambers at the same time when you pump it!! I also wish it wasn't so expensive but it definitely works!
Pricey but amazing product.
Posted 9/6/2014 by susan
I use this product twice a day am/pm after using toner. You need to turn the bottle upside down once or twice and make sure you press right in the middle to get the 50/50 correct amount. skin looks radiant and no need for moisturizer (for me anyway). I also use TNS Lytera after the application of the TNS Serum. The only down side - very expensive. One Bottle will last you at least 4-6 weeks.
Posted 8/28/2014 by KR
The smell isn't terrific, but get past that because the results are nothing short of remarkable. From the first few times you'll notice firmer skin and glowing. But don't dispense on the back of your hand as described -- apply the equal amount dispensed pumped from the dual chambers (creamy colored & red) to your fingertips and apply to entire face and neck. It spreads easier (and farther) if you leave your face and neck slightly damp after cleansing. This is the first product I put on and wait a few minutes until absorbed before putting on any other products. But don't wash off your hands until spreading all around temples, around sides of neck and I also put it on eyelids. Then spread what is still on hands onto the back of both hands. Age spots on my hands are disappearing too as a result of this product. After several months of use, there is no denying the firming action of this product. I will never be without it. It is expensive, but it also replaces so many products that don't come close to what this will do for you.

I tried TNS essential serum after a laser treatment, at the recommendation of my Dr. When the pump was empty, I stopped using it because of its price. As time went on, I noticed my face wasn't looking any better than before I'd had the procedure! When I went for a follow-up and they asked if I was still using the TNS, it clicked w/ me that that was the reason my improvement had been stalled. I started using it again, and have been faithful for the last 6 months. It's pricey, but well worth the $!!

I have been using this on and off for several years. It is expensive, but I always buy it when it is on sale which helps. It also is as others have stated, several products in one, which saves time/money in your daily routine. I use it only in the morning and it lasts about 3 months (i alternate with Retin A and night cream in the p.m.). My skin looks good, I am 46. When I stop using it, I feel like a see a difference (duller). I also use it because it consistently is rated high by dermatologists for having 'science' behind it. I am giving it one less star because it leaves my skin feeling a little dry after I put it on. I follow it with a spf sunscreen which gives me the moisture I need.
BEST PURCHASE FOR AGING SKIN
Posted 10/27/2010 by TKnCK
Reading Erica's comment 's on and talking to Roberta I decided I had nothing to loose trying. If the price bothers you it shouldn't because this serum can replace at least 3 other skin care products you already own.. I also can't get over how much time it saves as it drys so fast. I love how your skin tightens as it is absorbed I just started using and see an improvement in tone of skin. For my skin it is a little drying so do have to use moisturizer. I'm sorry I didn't try sooner. I also find the scent to be pleasant. This is one product you won't be sorry you tried.
CHANGED MY SKIN
Posted 10/19/2010 by Anonymous
I wasn't sure what to think of this serum when I first heard about it. It almost seems to good to be true. Lets be honest...IT'S NOT CHEAP. However, I did my homework. I found out that this serum covers several serums I was applying every morning & evening. I get my antioxidant, my peptide, my brightening serum and firming cream...not to mention the BEST growth factor on the market all in one. I end up saving hundreds by using this product. My skin looks amazing. People don't believe my age. It's luminous and firm. My lines have drastically reduced. I love this product. I'll never go back to my 10 minute morning routine, now it's just my TNS Essential Serum, Moisturizer/Spf & off I go!
