A luxury Swiss brand, the product carton offers a dramatic visual, unfolding like a flower with the interior revealing a view of the Alps. A User Manual is included which explains how to use this 9D Lifting Serum. When ready to use, turn the lid counterclockwise to access the nozzle and clockwise to close. The manual pump has a small opening which helps avoid inadvertently dispensing too much product. I am using only this one component in the Cell Power skincare line but so far am impressed with the results. I am past middle-age and know the importance of caring for my skin but am realistic about the limitations of topical products. But, this serum does a good job plumping the skin and the feeling is slightly constricting which provides some lift particularly for areas around the eyes and mouth where the loss of elasticity first appears.The directions instruct it to be used day and night after cleansing and toning. One press of the pump provides a sufficient amount of the clear serum for the face—a second pump will be necessary if wishing to do the neck. After it is absorbed, moisturizer should be applied so in the morning before applying makeup I use my regular cream and then at night a more intense product. The added fragrance is light and pleasant and dissipates within a few minutes. The product has improved the appearance of my skin, my fine lines and wrinkles. I am in love (and my husband should be jealous).
After removing it from its stunning box and applying it, I found that it really does remove and/or hides wrinkles and my under eye area has never looked better. It also helps my forehead quite a bit which is nice because I wear my hair to the side, and that means those age lines on my forehead show. I do like the gentle smell of this serum and find it pleasant, plus this product gives my face a distinct glow.
OMG! Ladies! So, I know, I know...its over $320. But I am blown away. I have only been using this for just under one week. I'm 41, and my worst wrinkles are on my left upper lip. There is a visible improvement in such a short time, as you can see from the pics. I clearly don't even need to label them before and after because it is such an improvement. My secretary mentioned yesterday that my skin has been looking amazing and she even asked if I lost weight. I have been using a light exfoliator to prep my skin, followed my this serum, taking special attention to rubbing it in the problem areas, morning and most nights for about 5 days. My tiny little wrinkles at the tops of my cheeks near my eyes are hardly noticeable anymore. The bottle is even awesome - twist the top and the pump appears, twist back to lower the pump back down into the cap to keep air out, and keep it from pumping in your makeup bag. I love this soo much!
I have only been using this serum for about a week but here is my review so far. It is a light, slightly sticky serum. I was surprised at how strong of a fragrance it has. I have really sensitive skin and that made me a bit nervous however so far I haven't had any reactions. It rubs in easily and is quite moisturizing for a serum. I don't even have to follow up with a moisturizer in the morning. I have noticed that my face has become a bit oilier than usual. I apply my normal primer after this serum and by midday, I am blotting the oil off my face which is not typical. So far the results have been really great though. My skin is so soft and smooth, the tone looks more even and I can already see a slight difference with my wrinkles.
The presentation is really quite lovely. Both the inside and the outside of the box should be considered for a prize for package design! Likewise, the bottle/delivery system is very smart. So, at first, it may seem a little confounding. But, all you have to do is hold the cap and then turn the bottle. You will see the top actually arise from inside the bottle. Neat! This makes the bottle a little smaller in your cabinet/gives you a cleaner look for your vanity. And, for me, it prevents that little bit leftover from the last application from clogging the dispenser. Now, the first thing I noticed was the fragrance. It's a little hard to pinpoint, but I might describe it as slightly floral? This could be prohibitive for those with allergies/sensitivities to fragrance. Otherwise, it's a nice enough fragrance. I think this serum could make a huge difference for those starting to invest in a nice skincare regimen for the first time).
