SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum
Dr. Irwin's Review: Cell Growth Factors/Antioxidants/ Peptides. Especially good for those women who want to do things as quickly as possible and have no patience with multiple steps. I wish I could bathe in this product, but it’s too expensive.
Use it at night or under your sunscreen in the morning or both. It’s the first “double pump” product I’ve seen that works well. You press the plunger and it dispenses your cell growth factor serum (TNS Recovery – the reddish one) AND your antioxidant and peptide mix at the same time.
There are 7 different antioxidants so it’s hard to compare it with other antioxidant serums (7 is not always better than 1). Has some weak plant based skin lighteners.
Expensive but could be worth it, in my opinion, especially if you hate multiple steps.
Who It's For: Sun damaged or aging skin, especially for the time pressured.
How to Use It: After cleansing both morning and night, massage gently over entire face.
