Long-time User Thumbs Up
By: Pam Nila from Downers Grove, IL US on November 26, 2013
"I have been using this serum for about five years. I read Dr. Perricone's book on wrinkle therapy and this serum had the best mix of the recommended ingredients of any that I found on the market (for the price). I am of northern European decent and this keeps my skin moisturized and firm."
Firming Serum with DMAE, Alpha Lipoic and C-Ester
By: juniegirl from Glen Rose, TX US on December 28, 2013
"I love this product! After about a week of usage I noticed so much more clarity to my face...blemishes were gone and my skin felt tighter!!! I am soon to be 70 years young...thanks to DermaE products!"

"I never used a serum until I went to Esthetics school. And even then, I had a hard time finding one that got along well with my skin.
This serum is amazing. It doesn't irritate or dry out my skin, and I am definitely seeing results in the short time I have been using it. My skin tone is evening out, fine lines are plumping up, and overall look and feel of skin is benefiting."

"This serum is the best I have ever used. I have oily skin, adult acne but also a type of skin which creates cysts under the skin. This product does help with fine lines. There is not the amazing over all, over night, change many expect, but if you choose to watch a certain area of your face, you will see the change in a few weeks. I have used 2 bottles and still seeing changes in fine lines which are very deep. They have almost disappeared"

"I am 55 with aging skin and oily T zone and have just discovered the benefits of serums vs products with moisturizers. This product gives the results of vitC without clogging my pores. Also, I have been using DMAE since Dr OZ recommended and really see and like the results. Cant find better results without spending hundreds on anti-aging products."
derma e Firming Serum
By: old face from Brownwood, TX US on September 4, 2013
"This product has not helped my skin. At age 72 with oily skin, I am still very prone to acne as well as subdermal cysts. The directions state the cleanse skin & tone, then apply this product. After using this product for almost a month, my blackheads have increased, my acne broke out worse and I have so many subdermal cysts that my skin looks like cottage cheese. This product also states that it is a hydrating formula which is easily absorbed. Having worked in the sciences for many years, there is little which the skin can absorb. Most things applied tot he skin evaporate but can create a shield against moisture loss. Nothing has been firmed up but the exact opposite. the skin just below the cheek bones is now wrinkled whereas it was smooth before this product. Used at night, by morning there are visible oil droplets on the skin and the skin can be blotted with a facial tissue and use the entire tissue. Used under mineral makeup, there was even more oil within 4 hours."
When I ran out
By: Jessica from Green Bay, WI US on October 11, 2013
"I used this serum for about 3 months. I thought it was pretty good, didn't think I noticed a big change in my skin, but definitely wasn't looking worse. That is until I ran out. Then I started using another serum from The Body Shop and DID notice my skin getting worse. I looked in the mirror each morning wondering why my wrinkles looked worse and why my skin was dull again. And then I realized it was because I stopped using the Firming Serum. I'm ordering more right away."
By: Ashley from Lutz, FL US on January 22, 2014
"I love this serum. I'm only 27, but have been using it for over a year and don't plan on changing my routine. I get compliments on my skin all the time. Although I do not have wrinkles, it brings a healthy glow to my complexion. You can never start taking care of your skin too early! I like how it absorbs into the skin leaving it soft and doesn't leave my face greasy like many others do."
