I got as a free forum gift with purchase the Priori Smooth Lines mini kit.

http://www.essentialdayspa.com/priori-smooth-lines-mini-p_6924.htm

I tried the 3 items included in the kit: Facial cleanser, the Smooth Lines, and the Facial Moisturizing Serum.

I've used the cleanser twice. I don't really see anything amazing about it. So I switched back to my other gentle cleanser. The fact that the cleanser contains AHA and BHA makes me worry that I'd overdo the exfoliation.

I love the Smooth Lines with Idebenone. (I just checked out the full size - holy cow, it's like $95.) Anyway, this thing seems to deliver, and the name suits it perfectly. When I wash my face, I sometimes see fine lines under my right eye. When I smooth the Smooth Lines on the area, the lines are minimized to the point where I could barely see them. And trust me - I scrutinize my face very closely like I'm sure most of you probably are! I am one happy camper. I've used this AM and PM for 5 days straight now.

Then I tried the Facial Moisturizing Serum. This got cones in it. I'm not crazy about it. I've only used it a few times. I don't really see any difference, but then again I apply this after the Smooth Lines, so I'm not sure I could really see any improvement on top of that with any other product either.

There you have it - my early rave reviews!

Bkkgirl - have you ever used the Prevage eye cream? I wondered how the 2 compare, as they look like similar products.

Hi Rileygirl,
No, I haven't tried Prevage eye cream yet. Sorry! Did you try it? How did you like it?

I have not tried the Prevage eye cream, Bkkgirl. Just curious if you had because both of the products seem so similar. Are you still having good results with the Prior?

I read about Priori when EDS first starting carry it. Idebenone is an active I have never tried but interested. Unfortunately, the trial sizes were gone when I placed my order. Thank for the review bkkgirl. Next purchase I will keep Priori in mind.

You're welcome, Winnie. Very Happy Too bad that EDS is not offering the mini kits as a free forum gift right now, so that you could try it. Sad Maybe it will be brought back again. Or maybe you could ask for a sample with your next order?

Let me know how it works for you. I have been trying to combat my undereye crepey lines for some time. The Smooth Lines seems to visibly reduce them by 90%. The remaining lines that I can still see are so soft that I don't mind. Right now, I also top it off with Vaseline at night to really keep the moisture there. It seems to work. I wake up with no lines under my eyes. Once I wash my face though, they come back. So it must be something to do with how dry my skin is.

Does anyone know the % of idebenone in the Priori line? It's so confusing: Prevage .5%, Prevage MD 1.0%, Visage 1.5%, True Radiance 4%. I know for some there is an irritation factor, so is less more with idebenone? What's the best % to have? Anyone...anyone...??

I just bought the Smooth Lines serum, and it states on the package that it contains .5% idebenone. I don't understand that True Radiance is supposed to contain 4%, as anything over 1% is supposed to be MD-only, if I've understood it correctly.

I've only used the serum for a couple of days, and it's too soon to tell whether it's making a real difference, and I might not have "enough" lines to see a real difference, but I'm hoping at least for an improvement in the dryness of my undereye area.

I'm curious about this as well Nemi. I'm not using any of the products from TR that contain that ingredient but I'd love for someone to ask her about it. This is just an opinion but I've seen the recommended percentages change from time to time and I've wondered if that's more manufacturer talk to justify low percentages and profit margins. If there isn't an answer in a few days maybe I'll write Aleta and ask.

To up the antioxidant levels, I'm lemming the Super AOX moisturizer from Cellbone Tech that was mention in the over 55 thread. It has 1.5% idebenone, 1% CoQ10, and 10% Matrixyl.

I ordered the Super AOX moisturizer from cellbone. I'm 49 - close enough! It sounds awesome. Next stop is the Radiance products.

Any updates on the Priori products?

Nemi - how is the Smooth Lines working out for you so far? Have you noticed any skin brightening effect it claims to provide?

TIA! Smile
