Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Firming Serum with DMAE, Alpha Lipoic and C-Ester is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value Excellent price for the ingredients in this. Feels great on the skin. My mom who's 74 also loved it. It makes the skin silky and it feels like there is some firming action going on. I use it mainly in the morning to protect my skin in the sunlight. The somewhat unpleasant smell is faint and easily covered by a day cream. I use Estee lauder and Chanel spf 50 and that completely covers the smell. Highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I need to give it a few more months The price for these ingredients is great. My skin looks good. I'm not sure about the firming yet, but I will wait 3 months and then do another review. It feels good, absorbs quickly in to the skin and the container is 2 ounces, so it's lasting a good, long time, probably 2 months. I will order again. I am using it with Derma-E's firming cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product I have used this product for a long time.. I compare it to the very expensive Dr. Pericone product. It is light and is perfect to use alone if you have oily skin or under your favorite night cream, which is how I use it.. Would not be without it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from unfortunately not as light as other serums that I've used. seems more like a lotion. purchased it for the ingredients DMAE, alpha lipoic, c-ester, and no propylene glycol.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from icky smell I love Perricone products due to the vitamin C and DMAE, but needless to say, they're extremely pricey. The price on this is right but the smell is horrible! It doesn't smell mildly fishy like Perricone products (I actually don't mind that smell since it is so mild) but rather has a chemical/sulphur smell... kind of like the smell of the curly 'permanents' that used to be so popular in hair salons. I'm using it anyway, but several times I've washed my face mid-day because I fear others can smell it from a distance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gentle and light but not super moisturizing. I have sensitive skin and breakout with various products. This does not cause me to breakout. Has a very light pleasant smell. However if you are looking for something to really moisturize, this probably won't cut it. I purchased this for the vitamin c factor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unpleasant fragrance When first using this product, I found the scent very clean and fresh with herbal undertones. However, after applying the serum daily for a week, the scent of the DMAE began to overpower everything else, to the extent it was a challenge to use it further. I managed to finish the bottle, but won't purchase this product again. As for the serum's effectiveness, I can't really say based on my limited use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product I was looking for a good quality serum for some time now...even contemplating to make my own as was concerned with the additives and chemicals they usually put in the bottle. This one exceeded my expectations by far. I love the way the skin feels after I put it on, silky and firm! Can't ask for more. The price is fair too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful This is really great for my mature and rather dry skin. The same product in the form of cream was too thin for me. That one is probably better for more oily skin I guess.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from new favorite serum This is my new favorite serum for morning & evening. I have combination skin that is just starting to get a bit dry in winter - this adds just the right amount of moisture. It absorbs quickly, has a great light scent & leaves my skin feeling great. I will definitely try more Derma E products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it The Derma E brand puts out a spectacular product. I love how it has all the essential ingredients that Dr. Perricone endorses as key to a healthy youthful appearance. All this for a very affordable price.... You got to love Swanson vitamins!
