alycas - If you're talking about Super Serum, I use about a half dropperful for my face and neck (including the sides of my neck and down to the collar bone). But I'm not sure what the proper amount to use is!!! I like that it's not oily yet at the same time it hasn't caused dryness. I suppose if it WERE oily I'd use less. The sample of Pro Heal Serum I received IS oily. Since it contains retinol, I'm only using it on my lines at bedtime now and then -- not every night. I may order a full size of this when it runs out, but a little goes a long way (on me).

Several others on the forum are using the Active Serum -- maybe they can help you out if that's the product you're referring to.

I use 5 drops of Super Serum to do my face, neck, and back of hands, and 8 drops of Pro Heal. Smile

I use about the size of a dime for my face. My proheal serum comes with a dropper, but the active serum came with a pump. That is also about the size of one pump.

If you have one of the sample vials, it's great for "portion control." I use one full dropperful out of the tiny sample vial and that's perfect for my whole face. I just refill out of my big bottle.

My big bottle came with a dropper, not a pump - definitely looking forward to the pump when I replace!

Edited to add: I'm referring to the Active Serum.

I LOVE the proheal. I don't find it oily at all...I guess more slippery than anything else. I had originally bought the superserum, but then traded with my sister for the proheal. I have very oily skin and the proheal is much better for me than the super serum. I use the proheal, active serum, eye complex and the hydracool. I am not too sure about the hydracool and will probably not repurchase it, but I love all of the other products in this line that I use.

Tipu,

I have tried the Active Serum and the Firming Complex. Love them both!!! In the summer my skin gets a bit oily so the Active Serum with the HydraCool over it in the evening is awesome. During the winter I think I will stick with the Fiming Complex with a moisturizer in the evening. I am not using the Super Serum as I have C&C by JB and like it a lot.

So, depending on your skin type I think the Active and Firming complex are a good place to start. If you get the Active I think you need the HydraCool over it.

If you currently have a Vit. C for morning use you should be fine. Make sure you ask them for samples of things you would like to try.

I only got a sample of the eye complex. I am starting to like it. Please do sample first. The only product I bought was the Firming Complex. The others were samples. I was able to get two samples of each. Shock

You won't believe this....I had a bid in on Ebay last night for Active Serum. My daughter called and I had to step out (forgot about ending time on Ebay). I lost the bid by $2.00. The Active Serum went for 65.00. Wasn't home to up the bid. Sad (Active Serum is $110.00).

I saw that auction, but I was a little chicken to bid. I don't know why, as I buy everything else on ebay!!
