I received the sample of YNS Medspa Intensive Peptide Complex ($65) and immediately began to use it am and pm.  I purposely did not read either the TIA or YNS Medspa descriptions of the product in order to keep my impressions pure.

My first experience with application was a warm, flushing feeling along with a mild sense of tightening/firming.  Cream is a misnomer, the formulation is more like a luminous, milkstone colored gel.

The morning after my first application I noticed a pleasant side effect in that my lips appeared to have had a lip plumper applied; they were fuller!  This is a good description of the effect upon my skin when wearing this product.  My skin feels moister, firmer and more evenly textured.  There was no magic bullet effect however, in terms of the below eye crepey-ness, unfortunately.

I believe I will continue to use this product but during waking hours only.  My skin felt moister and foundation powder held longer. I received complements on my appearance from fellow nurses, usually framed as: "What have you had done!?"  I enjoyed their suspicious appraisals!

    I have been using the cell-tight for many years. I like the old formula much better. This new formula does not make my face feel tight whatsoever! Also, there is an insignificant amount of product in all of the serums and hydrating creams. Sorry YNS, I am unsatisfied. :(

    I just bought the radiance peptide cream but i seem to notice a difference in the texture of the radiance than 7 months ago when i purchased the trial size! The last time i ordered the radiance it seemed a lot thicker in texture like a Lancome face cream would! This time it reminds me of whipped egg whites with a foamy type texture and definitely not even a medium thick cream! I paid a lot for 2 of them and just wanted to know if the Radiance is supposed to be like this? Thank you

    Keep using. Improvements are cumulative. I like to use companion product yNs A Cell-Tight under the eyes at night. It boosts and maintains results.

    Weird. I don't feel any tingling! It does make my skin appear brighter though!

    I'm wondering why you've decided to use this only during the day?
