I thought I'd start a new thread since the I am disappointed seems to have turned to I like it (grins) anyhow I am on day 2 and this stuffs great, not sure how to describe but its like my skin fits my face better (it wasnt saggy at all either) its def tighter, firmer ect...can't wait for a few weeks, I am using this in conjunction with my revive creams and the combo is great. I also have not had any reaction to using at all. AM: ideb, super, hydracool and revive cream after about 5 mins...PM: active, firming cream...then later revive cream. For some odd reason both days I've still needed a wee bit of cream. I tend to by dry versus oily so maybe thats why, but it is making anything I use on top work extremely better and FAST....So I owe a big thanks to all the ladies who's reviews finally broke me Very Happy !!

The above post is a review of the following product available at EDS:
IS Clinical Super Serum (30 ml)
IS Clinical Super Serum (30 ml)

This extraordinary formulation is the first to combine the clinically proven Vitamin C (stabilized L-Ascorbic Acid), Hyaluronic Acid (intensive hydrating ingredient), Arbutin Glycoside (controls uneven pigmentation), Pentapeptide amino acid (essential amino acids, protein building blocks, aids in reducing scar tissue and stretch marks), Kojic Acid (controls acne and uneven pigmentation), Vitamin B5 (essential for increasing cellular integrity), Centella Asiatica (phenomenal healing and potent antioxidant ingredient), and Zinc Sulfate (which is a powerful antioxidant, acts as an anti-inflammatory agent, promotes wound healing, and improves immunity). SUPER SERUM is unlike any formula ever offered, and combines phenomenal ingredients with unsurpassed abilities to produce remarkable positive results including: smoothing, evening pigmentation, protection against UV damage, encouraging and facilitating collagen production, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks, and providing excellent antioxidant protection.

I second that... it's been about 10 days and I'm very happy so far, Firming Complex is actually adding "bounce" to my skin.

In fact, I'm so glad I found this board because in such a short time of incorporating Vit. C, ISC and various other products mentioned here, my dull, ruddy, lifeless complexion has brightened up and improved considerably. Such a wealth of info, very much appreciated!!

Hi Melissa, I am pleased to hear it works for people, honest. But do you mind me asking whether you used AHAs before and which ones and/or another VitC serum?
Thanks, Molly

I am so glad you like it!! Those positive reviews are what got me started to begin with also. To think, with your review, you could influence many more to switch to IS!Laughing

Hi Molly
yes I've used AHA's before, even as extreme as micro retin A (which I hated and was going to do to prevent aging not for acne). I've never really had huge problems with any AHA's, I have extremely normal skin, no oilies (spelling) anywhere, pretty normal T zone, except my problem area is the dreaded blackheads or whatever all that is that the nose loves to gather. I've used various vit C's from high end to low end and never had a problem with those either. I am on day 3 now and I will say this stuffs strong, last nite after I did the active then the firming complex I was pinkish for quiet a bit but woke up normal. So as the ladies have mentioned starting every other nite might not be a bad idea for those who are sensitive. I hope that helps Molly.

P.S. I am one that if I am going to try a new line or system, I really do think its best to try it the way its suppose to work, so I don't think just adding say one of the serums to ur regimine is really going to do the job or show the results the other ladies have gotten. I will be happy to update results after a few weeks use!!!

ANNIE your reviews are one of the reasons I finally caved in Laughing !!

Just spreading the love!!! I would not be praising it so high if it really had not done miracles for me. I've tried lots of stuff that I was really just on the fence about, not bad but no real results. But then I found my holy grail, IS Clinical. That and all of the wonderful help & advice from all these great ladies and of course, the DIY queen. I just wish I would have found this forum sooner.'Smile'

I agree! I just turned 40 and would love to have found all this knowledge and information when I was in my 20s. I reckon I would look a lot younger now than I do Sad .

fifi I am 38 so I am about the same age as you. When we were in our 20s most of this knowledge and information wasn't even around!!

That being said I am glad I found this forum too. I actually discovered the EDS website doing a search for IS Clinical. I am going to be trying the Proheal soon and must admit that this forum helped convince me to give it a try.

Do you really think this stuff is preventative?? That it would help prevent aging if you started to use it earlier? I've heard alot about this stuff, but wondered if it was more as a treatment regime to improve skin as opposed to a regime to prevent?? I am not clear (obviously) on the difference, but thought that it was better at improving what you have I guess as opposed to also preventing wrinkles, aging skintone etc etc....(yeah and I really need to buy more skincare like I need another credit card bill...you get my drift Laughing )

I think it would be preventative if you started using great skincare early on - it certainly couldn't hurt. Faithful application of sunblock is probably the most important thing that everyone learns young now though, we just didn't do it when I was in my teens / 20s! Sure wish I could wind that particular clock back Laughing .

I am on day 5 going on day 6 and damn this stuff works fast, I was going to do a face scrub today but my skin feels like marble after I wash it, the combo of active and firming complex is amazing my skin is very tight feeling (but not like dry tight at all) its just firm as can be and smooth as glass. Not sure If we should ground katee or kiss her. I am still using revive creams during day and even those work so much better. I hope this doesnt hit a 2 week and the honeymoons over phase but from all I have read doesnt seem anyone has that happen. Ok quick question to Katee, Annie, Tiger, ect....is poly vit any good or even needed?

MelissaMarie - this stuff sounds great. So, are you using all the products from IS Clinical (wash, etc.). Would you mind sharing the products you are currently using? I have never had anything work let alone work fast. I am very interested!

Ahhhh it sounds like MelissaMarie is ready to be confirmed in the Church of ISC...laughing Exclamation

As for the question re the PolyVit - can't help you there - I've never used it. I think Marina has though...

Yup, a teeny sample a while ago. Based on said teeny sample, I liked the way my skin felt firmer-bouncy (I'm not good at this). I let it go because Skinterrra or some site told me this was to be used when you wanted to take a break from active serum. At that point, I wasn't interested in taking a break..the more active ..the better.

Mabsy recently tried a sample of this & liked it as well. She confirmed my intial reaction. So, I ordered full size. At this point, I'm planning to alternate with active serum & use firming complex everynight. This along with prevage in superserum in the a.m. I should like I'm 20 in a couple of months Rolling Eyes

Will post results shortly.

Consider me confirmed Laughing !! I really am impressed and thats not easy since, I have prob used damn near everything out there. To answer Riley:
am: cleanse..not using isc (using up what i have) Super serum, hydracool and then a very light amount of revive mositure renewal, and revive eye renewal. And about 3x's a week the ideb only because i constantly forget it. What I love is the simplicity of this. Would I repurchase revive, I am not sure its even needed its just that I have it. I find the moisture content is greatly improved in just this short time.

pm: cleanse, active serum, firming complex cream, revive eye renewal cream. Thats it and the results are the best I have ever had.

Eagerly awaiting marina's review of pro vit!!

Also Riley I know I've stated this before, but alot of ladies have more skin issues than me with great results as well, I have very NORMAL skin, my concern is the aging issues rather than breakouts ect...with that said I don't need the proheal ect, so my way might need to be tweaked depending on ur skin. There are def wiser minds in regard to that than me on here.

Thanks so much Melissa. I appreciate your help. I, too, have very normal skin and have tried just about everything out there. I am not sure if I don't give the products enough time before moving on or not. But, nothing ever works for me. But, when I saw your "reveiw" your skin sounded like mine. I don't have any breakout issues either, never had. I am 42, BTW, but a smoker (horrible I know) so my skin is "older looking than my age". My main concern is wrinkles/sagging. I think I will try the Active and Firming for sure now. I would love to find a place to order that could overnight it to me, as I am going on vacation on Thursday and it would be nice to have this. Thanks again for the help!

OMG Riley were prob twins Laughing our skin sounds identical I am 43, if you do try this get the super and the active and the firming. The 3 of those has made a HUGE difference very fast. I am not sure if you just use part of it, if you will get the same results. I watched the others ladies rave on and on for a very long time before I decided to go for it and I am extremely glad I did, in the long run this will truely save me a ton of money on all the $30-50 and up products I keep getting sucked into trying with nominal results. Also I only use a teeny amount of each, so these are going to last a very long time.

Best of luck
Melissa

Thanks Melissa! Yes, I thought we sounded very similar, too! I will try all 3 then. I am just searching for a place that will overnight it to me! I'll keep you posted.

I ordered the 3 from EDS and went for the UPS Express shipping. Melissa, do you still use a sunscreen after all the other products? I am considering using the ReVive Sensitif as the last step in the morning versus my sunscreen. Just wondered your opinion here on this. I can't wait to get these products. I sure hope I have great results like you! Thanks for all your help! Very Happy

Riley I use the Revive Sensitif for my sunscreen as well, I do this because I already have it and it has the sunscreen in it. Everytime I try just plain sunscreens I hate them on my face. Katee, I went blind re-reading post on isc eye complex and am now adding that to my arsenal, I already have the skinceuticals .5 retinol, I know you use the 1% but I am gonna give it a whirl with the lower one. I also noted that you posted it took a bit of time on the eye product so I'll be patient!! BEST OF LUCK RILEY
