Worth the price and Works best on Eyes over other machines
So i bought this over a month ago and been wanting it sense it first came out, I just couldn't pa the $250. I have to admit I dropped more on my IPL home therapy and my facials cost about 200 when I go on a monthly basis. I love to pamper and take care of my skin. I bought this from HSN because I can return it until Jan if I want, so it's not like I'm losing out on money, pluse it was $200 and I got a discount off it. Well it really does Work on my eyes and so Far better than my Derma Wan, Galvonic Spa and my IPL. Well maybe because those things take longer to do and I'm lazy. But with this Jenu I can do it in bed while I watch tv. It takes only a minute on each eye, but I do 2 minutes. And I do my lips for a long time probably like 5-10 minutes through the day or whenever I'm lounging out at home. I keep it next to my bed stand and It's so easy to use that I don't mind. Don't get me wrong my other machines worked good when I first bought them and was gung ho and used it daily, but those take time and I'm pretty lazy, which is why I go to spa's to get facials. This product really Helped my under my eyes where are was starting to get some freckles or sunspot looking stuff. Now it's lightened on one eye and completely gone on the other. I'm not sure if it works for crow feet because i don't have any yet, but I do have some faint smile lines when I smile under my eyes. it's not pronounced, but I hope it does go away. I've had this for about 6 weeks, but I haven't really been using it faithfully everyday as where I forget, but I use it atleast 3-4 times a week and I see a difference. I say this is worth it. I'm gonna try and use it daily now and keep track. I took before and after pics of my eyes and can really see a difference. I say try it and buy if from places that take returns if you're not happy with it. Most of us spend and have spent much more or about the same on things that don't work very well. I'm 36 yrs old and Eurasian, part of my genes are good, but the weather here in the states have not been kind to my skin, so I have to actually work to take care of my hair.

It really works on nose and pore on your cheeks. I don't really have blackheads and take really good care of my skin, but I still some oils because I like to flick my nose, how others play with their hair or bite nails. Well my nose looks smooth and my cheeks are smoothing out too. I have a few small pores that are noticeable to me when I look in the mirror and if you don't use a good was or clarisonic brush the BB cream that smooths them out, ends up getting under the skin and expanding your pores from collapse in collagen. Now it's pretty expensive for such a small tube and honestly it's not a spot treatment serum, but more of a whole face consistency. Cream based products are better at spot treatment, but this is a more silky liquid serum product. I'll do an update after 6 weeks to see if the claims for other improvements it promises on it's label.

Not bad, but not worth the money
so I got this a few years ago and used it till it was gone. It's similar to HD makeup sold in sephora and is about same price. it suppose to give you a smoothed out flawless finished look. It's okay and sets my makeup, but I don't have that poreless baby smooth face like I do with my skin79 gold vip BB cream. Even Skinn plasma finish look is good, but this is more like Bare minerals Mineral Veil powder. I really don't think this does what is says and honestly it's basically useless. It does set my makeup in and keeps it on all day, but you will have to reapply during humid or summer days. I would say save your money it's not worth paying over 15 bucks for this stuff. The best thing really is the kabuki brush it comes with.

Not bad, pretty nice for an evening wear
I got this with phermone and it came with the parfum one too. The spray smells much betther then the oil parfum. I really like the baby fresh powdery scent it gives off and a little goes a long ways because it is soo strong. Would I buy it agan? No, because you can get cheaper one's that are much more universal. This scent is really good on winter evenings because it has a strong potency to it, kind of a high class evening scent that reminds me of a really mature woman. When I'm old I doubt I will wear this, but since I'm still young I figure I can get away with it. It makes me feel classy when I smell it on my hair and wrist, but it is borderline old lady smelling so I spritz on a citrus earthy scent to mellow out the smell. I think all of her scents are over rated, but then again it is a woman who's in her 60's that's making this stuff and raving about it, I never see it advertised with women young than 40 yrs of age that's for sure. The parfum smells completely different than the spritz so I suggest if you wanna try it, get the sample first. I'm sure chemistry plays a big deal in this, but literally I can wear almost any perfume as well as men's cologne and get complemented on it.

Old Lady Alert, Move out the Way kind of Smell! not the good smell either
Okay I've watched this for about several years now, and wanting to purchase it, but weary because I can't smell it on the spot and I'm horrible at returning things. So I got a special that came w/this the , Destin and the parfums of both as well. This is Horrible and I'm too young to smell like an old lady. maybe it's my chemistry or my sense of smell, but it reminds me of the old perfumes you could make kits from barbie. I was soo exited to get this in the mail and when I opened and smelt it, I was Blown AWay, in a very Bad way! The parfume is worse! I then sprayed it on me hoping it would smell different, but it was worse. YUCK< YUCK YUCK!!!! Since it was so expensive and I know my mom wouldn't want it so I use it and mix it with a young floral scent to balance the potency out. I smell much better, but still more on the awful side. I use it around the house to drown out smoke smell when I'm cooking, but it still gives me a headache. It's very strong and well frankly the worse old lady scent I've ever smelt. Is smells like the great grandmas who like to bathe in perfumes and makes me think of old, snobby women who are hoity toity.. I would not waste your money on this at all! It's phermone alright, phermonal in that it attracts NOTHING! I'm one, who smells good with pretty much any perfume even men's cologne, but this stuck is pretty much rancid!!

Care it can burn your skin
Perhaps it's because I'm allergic to yellow gold and break out in rash when I wear it, the gold in this products or something else makes my skin itch, red and breakout. I've tried this several times because I got good discounts on avon when I sold it. I really really wanted to like this product and had high hopes, but to my dismay it hurt my skin in return. I do like the texture when it goes on and smooths over my face, but then a few minutes later I flair up and my face becomes red like I've just eaten ghost peppers. It may be just my skin, but I usually can use almost any product even Retinoids, so I could not understand what was wrong. I've read the igredients and it really seems no different than any other products I've used, but maybe it's the mixture of what they put in it. This it suppose to be for more mature skin and I don't have that at all. My skin is really good and I credit part of my asian for it, but this product makes me feel like I'm an old lady after putting it on. It did more harm and no good at all. This is from my personal experience and some people probably have better luck than I would, but I caution people to beware this is one product that you should do a test patch before hand. Oh and my product was brand new and fresh, since I was a seller, so I know I didn't use any second hand ones like you can get elsewhere online.

Nice moisture for the eye area
If you have dry skin around the eye area I suggest this product if you don't mind paying the price. It is cheaper than Lancome and Eminence that's for sure and I like the texture. It's not too oily and soaks in really nice under my eyes. I really like and and only got it because it came in a special kit. I really am looking forward to how it improves my skin long term after 6 weeks of use then I'll come back and do an update.

Wow, an airbrush flawless look!
I saw this on tv several times an how to use it, so I just had to get it when it came in a kit with other goodies. So I used it today and it really made my skin look great after using the BB cream for Skinn. My skin is dry and pealing from using my retinal A, but it also smoothed out the flaky sin I had and kept it compacted. I don't have big pores to begin with, but it smoothed out the small ones I do have and my skin looks porcelain smooth, no Joke!. I'm eurasian and have fair skinned that tans easily, this is perfect for when my color changed during the seasons. I didn't use any foundation and I even put my mad hippie day cream over the plasma on the really dry area. I just dabbed a little. I didn't sweat and it kept my skin from getting that shiny oily look. This is priced at $40 by itself, but I got it with a kit special for $45 along with eye rejen and skin refen and eyeshadow. I recommend this with a BB cream first then pat the Plasma over it. You don't need to use any foundation for that natural look if you skin doesn't have any scars or need covering up. It really does give you the HD blurr look. I can't give it a 10 yet, because I want to see long term use of it and also see how I look in pictures. Over all I am happy with this products since running out of my Skin79 BB cream, which that can be used all by itself. the GOld VIP one that is. If this turns out to be the miracle it seems for me, I may have to fork out and spend the money for it, but there are other products on the market that are similar and much cheaper if you find yourself not wanting to spend the money for this.

Worth the buy, especially for sensitive skin
As where most retinal and exfoliating products you can get real flaky skin and redness if you have sensitive skin like me, this product is perfect for us. I've used Obagi and the the Obagi C for sensitive, which was still harsh for my delicate skin area. I flaked for 3 weeks! This product is perfect to use nightly for a week and then every other night. I also put a dab of Retinal A on darker scar areas and sunspots. I haven't really flaked much and when I did, I just put a vitamin C moisturizer from Mad hippie and the serum, before putting on makeup and I didn't flake at all. In fact it took over a week of nightly use before I even saw a few flakiness and I think it was mostly due to me also using a Retinal A cream as well every other night over the Vivite. I paid $100 from my spa and I do think this is worth the price. It's cheaper than Obagi and Retinal A from your spa or doctors office. Of course I stock up on my retinal in Mexico because it has a long shelf life. The one's I purchase don't expire for atleast 4 years and I go yearly. But it can be too strong, as where VIvite is a good start if you've never used an exfoliate like this and is also a good addition to your weekly routine. i do recommend switching your products up as the season changes and this may be a bit too harsh during the cold dry winters. I use this in the summer and back home in Hawaii it's very humid, so this is the Perfect product for humid and hot weather.

Not bad for the price
I read about this on Paula's choice and decided to try it.. I don't consider Estee Lauder expensive at all, maybe for those who only buy drug store products, but you get what you pay for. To me expensive is DermaMedics & Skincueticals, but well Worth it! I've been using this for about a month or so and though it's not Miracle results, it works good enough for the price it cost. I mean it's not Prevage or Vivitex, but like I said you get what you pay for. I used this and then applied Retinal A, Vivitex, or PRevage afterwards. I switched it up every week On what I used. I do think it's worth the price. I take very good care of my skin and have part Asian in me so I'm sure genetics plays a part, but my skin is flawless, smooth and I look younger than 30 yrs of age for sure. I say if you can't or don't want to spend the money on medical grade or spa products than Estee Lauder is the way to go, especially over Lancome for sure.. Lancome is just the fancier upgraded name of L'oreal. Like how Toyotal's upgrade is Lexus, Honda to Acura...well...you get what I'm saying....Not much difference where Lancome an most other come into play aside from Price Raise!
