SkinMedica’s TNS Essential Serum – the beauty BOMB!

Alrighty, so I’ve been avoiding purchasing SkinMedica’s TNS Essential Serum for a long time now because, well, it’s expensive! But after traveling recently from Kennewick to Tacoma to visit my workplace, Laser Hair and Skin Center of Tacoma, I was pushed over the beauty budget line due to the fact that all my co-workers were looking so fresh and prittay after using this product.

TNS Essential Serum by SkinMedica is a powerfully rejuvenating pharmaceutical-grade skincare product that works for all skin types.  That in itself is a pretty great thing, don’t you think? This product incorporates a combination of anti-oxidants, growth factors, cytokines, matrix proteins and peptides, which, when whipped up together in this magical formulation, will make your skin look amazing right away.  The longer you use it, wow, it’s like a beauty bomb went off and wreaked havoc on all your skincare woes! It improves fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone and texture. Mmmm, yes!!!  You will notice brightening, tightening, and even a reduction in hyper-pigmentation, or age spots.  How does it do that?!!

You probably have heard of anti-oxidants in skincare, which speed up and increase the skin’s natural process of repairing itself, and help keep further damage from occurring. But what about growth factors, cytokines, and matrix proteins?

According to SkinMedica, “Growth factors are messenger proteins that are inherent in our bodies and play a crucial role in maintaining healthy skin.”

Paula’s Choice notes that cytokines “encourage cell growth, promote cell activation.”

In Shape Your Face’s glossary of skincare terms, they describe matrix proteins as “responsible for the skin’s strength, firmness, and elasticity.”

Peptides inform your skin cells of damage and signal them to produce new collagen. How cool!

Pharmaceutical-grade products do make a difference. The purest form of the ingredients are used in the formulation of physician-strength products, and in the highest potency allowed without a prescription.  Pure, powerful, high caliber ingredients are expensive, so be prepared.  However, your pharmaceutical skincare products may not be any more expensive than department store products.  While some department store products may be wonderful, keep in mind that they are not in the same category as pharmaceutical skincare products. You will absolutely get the most impact and the highest efficacy from products, such as SkinMedica, which are purchased from a medical spa.

The Essential Serum is to be applied to the face, neck, and chest, after cleansing and toning, and before any other products, such as SPF or makeup.  SkinMedica’s website states “Clinical studies show that initial results occur in 30 days with best results occurring in 90 days.” Use twice daily for best results, but even if you only use it at night, it will generate a positive difference in your skin. It’s sort of like waking up each day and having your skin look like you just had a facial. Gotta love that!

Oftentimes we peoples with oilier or problematic skin shy away from rejuvenating products.  I’ve gotta say that I’ve been using this product for over a week now, and, if anything, oil production and breakout appear to be minimized. Mmmmhmmm!  I even felt comfortable going into town without makeup today, which doesn’t often happy when you’re, sigh, over 40!  Yes, we are still camping, but still!  That’s never stopped me from wearing makeup before!  😉

  1. I hope you can advise me since you have experience with the two products I am looking at. I just finished my first bottle of Skin medica TNS essential serum. A few days ago my hair dresser gave me a sample of Nerium AD, and I have used it for three days. My skin feels super soft. I am 55 years old ,and looking to buy the better product since both are expensive. Can you offer advice?

    1. Both products are wonderful! I have to say that my TNS ES had just run out when I was offered the Nerium to try. I wasn’t expecting to even like it, but I love it, use it, and sell it. I am also seeing more results with Nerium. Thanks for asking. 🙂

  2. I’m very pleased to uncover this website. I wanted to thank you for ones time due to this fantastic read!! I definitely enjoyed every bit of it and I have you book marked to look at new things in your site.

    1. I have tried both and prefer the Skinmedica’s TNS Essential Serum 10 to 1 over Nerium. With any Skinmedica product you will pay top dollar but it is oh so worth it!! Taking the cheaper route out of this ordeal will only leave you wishing you had prettier skinI love my skin more than ever now!

      1. I’ve been in skincare a long time as a clinical esthetician and also have worked independently. I have used, sold, and loved a lot of different product. I still have accounts with PCA Skin and iS Clinical. My favorites do include TNS Essential Serum, and I have written about it, but once I tried Nerium, I haven’t looked back. My skin improved a little quicker, and I now am able to get my skincare treatments less frequently, yet my skin is slightly better just using Nerium than when I was receiving peels, IPL, microdermabrasion, AND using TNS Essential Serum. Don’t get me wrong, all those treatments and many other products are wonderful, but in my personal experience, and from what I have witnessed on my skincare clients, you can’t beat Nerium!

  3. Thank you for the detailed write up on SkinMedica’s TNS Essential Serum and how each of its components works to help keep the skin young and clear. Like you, I too have been hesitating to buy the product because I did not know whether the higher price was worth it. I have oily skin too and that was another reason behind my hesitation. If this product minimizes oil production and break out then it definitely looks like the solution I have been looking for. Thank you for sharing your story so that we can make a better decision.
