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!
