Ok I was NOT going to review this product for a good month, but I am seeing some amazing results in only 10 days! The web site says results within the first few weeks, well they are not kidding.

Now please no one run out and buy this until I re-review next week, even I do not trust what I am seeing and/or feeling.

Besides, smoother, firmer skin, there are changes I can't put my finger on, entire eye area is smoother, firmer, just better looking, as with the rest of my face. I am concentrating on talking about the eye area because there are markers I can use.


Over ten years ago I had surgery on my eye, which left lines on the side of the left eye, with time those lines have turned into grooves that I can feel if I run my finger over them. The kicker is, the lines on my left eye are ALOT softer, the mirror shows them but they are NOT grooved, when I run my finger over them (and trust me I keep trying) I cannot feel the groove at all. Even tho I've been able to feel this groove, the mirror never showed them as that deep, but my finger did Confused . Now I can't feel the grooves AT ALL. This is amazing to me.

I am more than thrilled so far! I love the fast results and according to the website, the results should just continue! Again, since even I am leary of what I myself am seeing and feeling, I'd prefer to still wait. But had to review early, this stuffs amazing so far.

I've had creams plump my face in the first few days then stop and we were back to square one, this did NOT do that, no changes nothing until the last few days. Here's to hoping it continues! I will update again next week and we'll see if this was a fluke and were back to normal or if it maintains!

Tiny,

Your results sound amazing, I can't tell you how much I appreciate an honest review! Too many "Hallelujah it's a Miracle" posts on various products since I have been on EDS only to see the same person jump to something else in a month. Rolling Eyes

I am thrilled you are seeing great results so far and will be anxiously awaiting your full review, and whether you decide to repurchase!

Thanks! Very Happy

I may just be adding mine in a month-month and a half!
I won't recommend anything unless it really shows something great either! Smile

Tiny, how long do the bottles last? With one pump twice a day?


the cream and the cleanser are 1.01 ounce

the serum is .70

you can buy the serum alone at 1.01 ounce for 199.00, the cream for $70.00, but in this kit its $179.00 for all 3.

With one pump my bottles will last at least 2 months, but I am betting 2.5-3 months, from seeing the ten day usage. I have used a bit more of the cream, when I first started I kept thinking my face needed more, yet when I touched it, it was moist, but I felt it needed more, so added more. I did NOT need more. I Hope that rambling helps


You did find a deal, check this out.....

Stem Cell Anti-Aging Essentials Trio #1

Regular Price: $255.00
Special Price: $204.00

The site does have some great information on the products! Very Happy

I ordered the trio, it is winging it's way to me as we speak.
I was a bit worried with EU regs that they wouldn't ship to England but they were happy to do so.
So I will be able to add my opinion very soon.


lori!

We will have three to compare notes on this!

That is awesome you had no problem ordering in EU!!! Very Happy


No and if I took the basic shipping option it was really cheap compared with other stuff I have ordered from USA in the past.
Being the impatient sort I opted for the more expensive option 5-10 days delivery and tracked.
If I like it next time I will order a few bottles if long or no expiration date. I f I don't like it I will fly to America and strangle Tiny. If she tells me where she lives.

Now why didn't I think of using someone elses cc.
The next thing I post on this thread will be a proper mature post. I don't want to detract anymore from the real subject.
After all we are here for fabulous skin.

Ok DarkMoon,

I am doing a repeat test of leaving it on for a bit, before I take my shower, after I am done, I will re post the cleanser information, just to make super sure, I am right, I have not left it on that long since I first got it.

Ok I am glad I did this, my results are the same, but what I did leave out is I do wash off makeup first with one of 80000 cleansers I have. I do not want to waste this ingredient on washing makeup off and rinsing! I've used a different cleanser to remove make-up since I got this and just forgot to add it in. I could test if it removes make-up or not, but I feel that's a total waste.

After less than 2 minutes this sinks in, or to the touch feels as if it does, it does not "mask" up at all. When you add water either with the brush or just to the face it comes to life again and cleans away!

I also forgot to add, after a minute or two of applying all products, there's a definite firming up that I feel. NOT tight, ect. just a nice firming! This has been from the beginning.

The directions say to let the serum sink in fully before applying cream, I've followed that the entire time.

So is this better than AnteAge? What's the scoop?


I know I cannot answer this as I have not used the AnteAGE, neither has Tiny and as DM only ordered today she cannot possibly compare yet.

It is a good question and as such I think it might be worth sometime in the future starting a new thread. So that this one remains about Reluma. Wink

There is a thread on the science already with the doc's input on it.

I suppose I could compare my thoughts there once I have tried the ReLuma that is on order, being the only one that has used the AnteAge.

@Bethany are you interested in purchasing this also, You are reordering the AnteAge correct, and also are using the Envirion products?

Well here is that thread:

Bethany, there is no way too tell, its way too early. The only reason I ordered this is it has the cytokines and a fantastic reputation. When I was searching for information on this ingredient, I found Re Luma, and it was on sale for almost half price of the other 2 being used on this forum. So the price got me to try it, the results will keep me using it now!

Since the ISCO thread is barely recognizable as such, I'd prefer to not mix this one, if possible. I think DM put up a link where the differences between these two are discussed. Perhaps if there are any questions, they can be dissected there!

Thanks Tiny - I had no idea there was another discussion so I will check that out.

But good luck keeping your thread "pure,"...my Cure product review thread has turned into an Egyptian Magic thread, lol.


Bethany, it can take twists and turns, but anything to do with this ingredient becomes a science lesson from hell. We have tons of threads that discuss this ad nauseum. I'd like to keep this about results, there is a thread were the science on this product and the various others are discussed, DarkMoon provided it! Thanks for understanding Wink

In case anyone is wondering about this Company here is a link to their site, full of information. They work with Doctors and surgeons all over the world and are very highly thought of. They do not just work in skincare, they work in wound healing as well.

I found these recommendations for Reluma:
FOR PREVENTIVE TREATMENT IN YOUNGER SKINS (approximately 20-30 years old)

Use as follows:

For the first 3 to 4 weeks:
ReLuma is applied twice daily. After this initial time, apply only once a day.
After the 3 months: Apply 2 to 3 times per week, at night only to maintain results.


FOR ADVANCED ANTI-AGING TREATMENT, SUN-DAMAGE, ROSACEA

Use as follows:

For the first 3 months:
Apply ReLuma twice daily (morning and night).
After the 3rd month: Apply once daily at night.
After 6 months: Apply 2 or 3 times per week at night.
http://www.relumaforprofessionals.com/usage.php

I think it is very interesting that depending on your age as to when you reduce the usage, the final amount is just 2-3 times per week. If it works, this could be very cost effective.
