Priori is exactly the same as True Cosmetics- the core products anyway. E.g True Radiance = Priori Eventone and True Youth Revealing Complex = Priori Smooth Lines and the eye serums are the same. Even the professional use only is the same with the lactic acid peel with idebenone.

Priori is owned by an Aussie company True-Solutions. While True Cosmetics is a US company.

If you buy True Cosmetics and check the ingredient list, it's exactly the same as Priori as far as the Idebenone line goes. This is because both brands are made by Allergan which has the patent for the idebenone and the formulations are private labelled out. So if you don't mind paying extra for Priori for the same thing that's none of my business. Wink I guess the fact that Priori is made in USA anyway explains the cheaper prices on Essentialdayspa as opposed to what we have to pay back at home in AUstralia- like 30-40% more!! Laughing

I have noticed though that the maintenance line from Priori and True Cosmetics are abit different. True seems to have a wider range for various skin types whereas Priori only seems to have an anti-aging line for mature skin type. I was interested in Priori Moisturizer with Idebenone but it doesn't state how active the ingredients and when I asked the company they couldn't tell me either. Sad So if this stuff doesn't have at least 0.5% idebenone (level at which it is effective) then I ain't purchasing. Not talking

Think Think Think I didn't like True Cosmetic's idebenone skincare.

Thanks for responding Liza..I was starting to get the 'itch' but I've used prevage with 1% and, although it does have it's benefits, certainly does does live up to the hype....so if that's the only ingredient that's Priori's only claim to fame, then I'll pass....

I remember the same thing when Vichy came out with their Vit. C line. I e-mailed and asked how much was in the line and they told me is was basically a secret. People are more savy about ingredients than the cosmetic companies give them credit for. If they don't tell I don't buy.

Idebenone is the synthetic analog of Coenzyme Q10. They both dissolve very easily in a face cream or body lotion or just plain carrier oil.

If these beauty companies won't give you answers, you can just buy a few grams of the Idebenone or Coenzyme Q10 quite cheaply from a few reputable online companies and add it to your own cream. It's as easy as sprinkle and stir. Be warned - they will turn your cream yellowy-orange, but it does not colour your skin at all and that way you know you have a decent amount of the ingredient in your skincare, for a fraction of the full retail price.

Yay, go Aussie!!! Not that I know if these products are good, but I have heard of them and would like to try the Even Tone. Those mini kits look good! Very Happy

I really wish EDS would get Kosmea as well. They make some very nice stuff!

I used the priori Idebenone range and it did wonders for my skin. It was an easy routine but my only concern was that the smooth lines doesn't seem to spread very far (well for heavy handed me that is) The range did give me a healthy glow and seemed to just smooth it out nicely. My skin looked good and balanced and didn't need make up. Because I went through the product pretty fast and it IS very expensive in Australia, I didn't continue. I have to say I loved the cleanser (it lasted a very long time).

I moved onto the Dermalogica Age smart range and surprisingly it was also great, so I used that as my basic range for a while.

Ironically, my plastic surgeon (I had a small operation on my chin) doesn't recommend any of these lines. He says only use Cosmedix and other cosmedical products, like Obagi. He says Priori is the same as any other 'beauty' product range out there, they go for the surface look and feel rather than addressing the REAL or underlying issues.

Well I went in to a beauty salon yesterday to start a series of Omnilux revive sessions and the package includes some peels. They said I HAD to get the priori range and use it beforehand so I'm back on Priori now Laughing. Using the advanced AHA range... I'll post updates after using it for a while Anxious .

Oh my, I just checked the prices here at EDS and I could have saved a BUCKET of money buying the Priori here!!

Has anyone used the Priori Coffeeberry range? I am curious what kind of results, if any, people are getting. Or is it just for prevention of aging?

Hi Amonavis,

Hopefully someone who has experienced the coffeeberry at home regime will pipe up but in the meantime I'll tell you about my salon experience.

I had the coffeeberry peel with an omnilux revive treatment yesterday. It felt quite 'active' on my skin but not too strong. I came out looking very bright and clear and the combo minimised my freckles. I believe the coffeeberry products brighten the skin. I know the omnilux is good but I think it was the coffeeberry peel that made my face shine so bright.

I like the look and feel of the priori products on my skin and my skin responds well to them (I have the fussiest skin - not any old product will do for me) Rolling Eyes. Don't know if that helps at all.

Cheers

I have used the CoffeeBerry Facial Brightening Complex. It does brighten up the face and I think it is a good antioxidant. Suitable as an alternative to vit. C serum. I am not sure about specific action on pigmented spots though. I don't have any bad pigmented spots for "testing" it on.

Actually I should clarify the point I made about my freckles. I don't have dark freckles on my face they are quite faded anyway but my overall skintone was significantly brighter, clearer and very even after the session.

Good luck with that vacancy Amonavis and keep us posted. Laughing

I'm not as happy with the AHA as I was with the Idebenone range in terms of giving my skin that instant lift etc. But alas I am too impatient. It had not been one week yet! Darn girl, give it time Rolling Eyes LOL

I will provide a proper update in a few weeks.

I'm wondering if anyone has tried the Priori smoothing eye serum?

I had a sample envelope of it that I liked, I could feel a little tightening, and either from the tightening or something in the forumula (or perhaps both) I noticed that when I used it the concealer I use to disguise the dark undereye shadows really stayed put. (normally, as the day wears on some would migrate into my undereye crease and form a line there.)

I'm hoping someone will have more long-term feedback... I'm hoping for something that reduces dark circles and/or milia. My initial impressions of the product are good, but $60 seems a little pricy for a product if its only function is as an undereye makeup primer.

I just ordered my Priori products. I can't wait to try them since I have been waiting for them for a while now. I wanted to do some research on more natural and organic skin care lines before I made my decision to try Priori. I got the day and night cream, eye serum and anti aging serum. I have only tried a few samples but they feel best on my skin. Any thoughts from other users?

The Priori Coffeeberry mineral m/u was reviewed in the very newest Allure magazine. The mmu seemed to really help with skin tone, fine lines, etc.

I'm thinking of trying the foundation. Anyone with experience with their m/u line? I already use Cellbone vitamin Cie serum (with idebenone and vit e) so was looking to add this mostly for the antioxidant benefits of coffeeberry, but if it is actually antiaging as well that's a bonus!

I used the Priori Night Cream with Coffeeberry. While I do like it, I prefer the Revaleskin Intense Serum (with coffee berry). The Revale skin isn't anywhere near as natural, but I do find Revaleskin working to diminish the redness I get occasionally. I didn't see much of a difference with Priori

I ordered the perfecting foundations, perfecting concealer and the finishing touch makeup after reading the allure article. I ordered from amazon and the products were shipped separately, so the only thing I've gotten so far is the concealer.

It is a weird pinkish/white, almost chalky look on my skin by itself. I'm really hoping when I dust the foundation and finishing powder on top, it will have a more natural look. Until I get those products, I've got to go back to my Eve Pearl concealer!!

Thanks Loribar. I think I might try the foundation when I run out of my Physician's Formula mmu. (I know it's cheap, but I get so many compliments when I wear this foundation!)
