Skin Medica TNS Essential Serum

Skin Medica TNS Essential Serum reviewNot all wrinkle creams are created equal, and they are definitely not priced equally.  Wrinkle creams can run from around $20 into the hundreds of dollars.  The effectiveness of the wrinkle creams varies just as widely.  Before you invest hundreds of dollars in a product it is very important to understand what it contains and how well it works.  Skin Medica TNS Essential Serum is one of those products that runs in the hundreds of dollars, but it makes some pretty big claims which if true may justify the price.  Let’s take a look at exactly what this serum claims to do.

Product Overview

The TNS Recovery Complex is a patented chemical that is designed to work along with peptides and other ingredients in Skin Medica TNS Essential Serum to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as the overall tone and texture of the skin.  Free radicals have been shown to do much damage to the skin, so Skin Medica TNS Essential Serum contains seven antioxidants to help fight this free radical damage.  The product also contains an ingredient called alpha arbutin to help brighten the skin.  This all sounds good, but do all those ingredients actually do anything?

Consumer Review

One consumer that tried this product stated:

“Skin Medica TNS Essential Serum is expensive, which forces one to approach it from the mindset of hoping that it works but not being too disappointed if it does not because this would be a really large investment to keep making every month on a beauty product.  The directions indicate that the product should be used twice a day, once in the morning and once at night.  While the product does work it just does not seem to be $160 a month worth of improvements.  For that price it may be a better idea to learn how to age more gracefully.” – Felicia, Washington

Where To Buy

The manufacturer prices Skin Medica TNS Essential Serum at $260, which is definitely way too much to pay for this product.  Amazon has it priced a bit more reasonably at $160.  Outside of online retailers the only other place to find Skin Medica TNS Essential Serum is likely your dermatologist’s office.  In fact, if you are seriously considering giving the product a try you should ask your dermatologist about obtaining a free sample.  It is not really realistic to purchase a product this expensive unless you know that you will have really dramatic results.


With so many effective wrinkle creams around the median price point there is really no reason to spend hundreds of dollars trying to get results.  Granted Skin Medica TNS Essential Serum contains some pretty impressive ingredients, but the actual results do not justify the price.  Many people try to stretch the product by only using it once a day, but the best results come from using the product twice a day,  Even if it is in your budget to spend $160 a month on a wrinkle cream, which makes you a very fortunate person, there are other products that are priced equally or are less expensive that do a much more impressive job reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and firming the skin.  Properly moisturizing your skin is one of the biggest keys to reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and there are plenty of less expensive ways to do that.
