Im on a roll today with hydropeptide reviews. This is my all time favorite face cream. I mainly use this as a night cream however, it can be used in the morning too. My only comment is if you have very oily skin I wouldn't use the serum (stem-6 version) with it in the morning. I used the regular anti aging serum and the power lift at night before bed and the lighter face lift with stem 6 serum in the morning. What i noticed within a few weeks is that my face was actually less oily, pores were smaller, eye bags less puffy and my skin felt wonderful. I have tried a lot of different face products of a variety of price points. Estee Lauder, Lancome, olay, murad, dermologica, the list goes on and on. None of these worked how I wanted them too. I used olay for years just to moisturize at night but now that I'm older i need more than just lotion. So while working at a spa I got this product plus the toner, eye cream and serum. i can honestly say that my skin has NEVER been better. The main reason is that they actually use the clinical trial strength of the ingredients in the product which most companies that mass produce don't do because of cost. Yes $96 seems expensive but when it lasts for 6-8 months it end up costing less than drugstore versions. If on a budget,what I recommend is buy one item a month until you have the complete set. Start with toner and one of the face creams, either face lift or power lift, then add a serum, then facial cleanser, then eye authority. The cleanser is very good but If you have to pick and choose on products then start with face creams and toner as they are a must have now.
