Anyone use her C-Esta Face Cream. When bought it I remember it being a creamy light yellow and now it is caramel colored.
Is it still good?

Lexi it is good to hear that SuperCop has done wonders for you. What exactly hacve they done? I have recently started using SuperCop myself and I ask this back up my own observations. I want to know that I am not just imagining the results I seem to be getting. I think I have had skin tightening.I used C-esta serum for a long time and stopped. In fact I was on the Jan Marini line with the eye cream, the tgf-Beta 1 growth factor, the biglycolic body scrub etc. I finally realised I was wasting my money! I now get alternate products but mostly stick with retin-a and Super-Cop which has done wonders on my face. My body I am still working on but it has improved since I started using Sweet Almond Oil.
Hi Melly-Lexi it is good to hear that SuperCop has done wonders for you. What exactly hacve they done? I have recently started using SuperCop myself and I ask this back up my own observations.

Chunch--SuperCop is from SkinBiology (.com for the website). It is a highly concentrated copper peptide.Thanks for the info Lexi. I have not tried any of their other products except the Propumpkin Peel which I got as a free sample. I like it but do not know whether it has actually done me any good so I won't comment on it. However through reading this blog and doing my own research I am slowly building up an arsenal of effective products. Each company only seems to have 1 or 2 really effective products. However I could be wrong there.
My experience with the Supercop was on my neck where I had some very loose skin and by using this product every second day the loose skin tightened within 2 weeks. This is one of my more extreme transformations so I kind of wondered whether I imagined it. However reading what you said made me think I did not. I am now using the Supercop over my whole face.
Why are you so impressed with the "Neck, Breast and Decallotage" cream? What has it done for you?
Fawnie--can you describe the skin damage more? Keep in mind I was using the body lotion while I was using the AHA too and between one of the two of these my skin was damaged on my body. The SuperCop I have only used, and used immediately, on my under eyes and there was only improvement. I wonder if I did have a reaction to the copper peptide on the body but not face as I was simultaneously using retin-a?One caveat about copper peptides though from somone who ruined her skin with them: Start with the lowest concentration possible, not the Super Cop! And work up sloooooooooowly. You have to dilute it as the directions say and not rush your skin along or you will end up worse than you started. My skin was great and I just wanted to make it.....greater.....so I tried the copper peptides in the 2nd from the bottom strength and advanced too rapidly. It took me a good year to undo the damage - shriveled, saggy, horrible skin!
OMG! This is what happened to my body! It is like if I bend over my stomach skin crinkles like an 80 year old woman instead of as it was just a few months ago, young and taut! It is all over my body, it is as if I have a shell, a very soft thin shell of skin that moves in unison rather than being resilient and more "skin-like". What did you do to recover? I blamed this all on the AHA's! I was using AHA 20% all over as SkinBiologys said it works best with aha's or retin-a and I figured for a larger area an AHA was better. This is what the dermatologist said was skin dehydration but I am beginning to think only us "skinfreaks" know what these things are as we all have different reactions and we are really on the frontier, ahead of many dermatologists and p.s's in the skin care world.Hi Lexi, Gee it's possible, especially if you hit the ground running with SuperCop. I can only describe my skin as "shriveled-looking, leathery, lacking tone, wrinkled, saggy". It took me a very long time to get my skin back to looking good again. Thank God I only used this on my chest and decollete. I don't think I'm the only one this has happened to - I've read similar problems with CP's on other forums. And yes, it seems to have a lot to do with too much too fast.
NY, I don't think you need to visibly exfoliate to get results. If your skin looks good and feels good then it's working for you. My skin doesn't peel or flake and I am happy with the results. I think it's a microscopic exfoliation that happens on a daily basis, instead of a massive dramatic clinical Peel. But that's just what I think. What do I know??
After her description I think these are what ruined my body skin. I just need Fawnie to give me her remedy now!So then i have been getting ready for bed, but with my boyfriend out for the evening im too tired too move from the sofa!
Fawnie you know more than me so il carry on using the vit c serum, thanks for the info about coppers, um not sure im willing to risk trying these myself though!
OK--I just got off the phone with my dermatologist (she is an indirect friend actually). She has not seen any of these cases but did tell me which journals I can find some articles that may address it on are in. I have the databases at home so I will do some reading now before I go out for the night and report back. Just started actually and got side-tracked reading up on a new vaccine for melanoma.Lexi
0.1% RA is pretty high!...for anti-ageing 0.025% and 0.05% is recommended, isn't it? Just don't want you to overdo it!
Yes, I read that too about the CP uglies and sticking with it, but that didn't sound like something I wanted to take a chance with. I just didn't trust it after seeing the damage already done. You can't believe everything you read on the internet and use it for yourself!
