Rated 4.11 out of 5 stars
At 38 most people would say I don't have concerns that are not easily addressed. To me skincare has been the center of my routine since I was a teenager. The price is what I would expect for a quality product from Dermalogica. I use their Multi-Vitiman Thermafoliant twice a week and have enjoyed adding this to my routine. What I was personally interested in was a serum for my neck. One pump of this serum covers both my neck and face. It is thicker but is easy to apply. There is a unique smell, not off-putting yet not truly botanical as one would expect. As it has now been over two weeks I can agree that the skin in my neck is appearing firmer and smoother. Their website was an excellent complement to this product as it has personalized recommendations for my application technique of this specific product. Easy to follow and useful. Being gluten-free is important to me. Based on my research the top 4 ingredients for the Lifting are emollient and excellent for oily skin, which I have. The 5th is salicylic acid which I enjoy as a component of the serum. The top 4 Firming ingredients are essential for mixing with and enhancing the emollients in the Lifting side. The 5th is the antioxidant Chondrus Crispus that aims to protect skin from blue light exposure. I wish there were higher levels of peptides but I have alternative products that I use with this ingredient. All ingredients are a mix of plant and synthetic and excellent in quality. This is a product that I plan to repurchase. I enjoy and have used various Dermalogica products over the last 6 years on a very consistent basis. Received as a gift.
Honestly, I rarely give negative reviews but my experience was not favorable. First of all one pump is more than enough to cover your face and some so fyi two pumps is over using the product. Then when I mixed it in the palm of my hand as suggested, it had a smell that was absolutely wow, bad. It smelled funky like a skunk. I didn't realize it until I put it on my face. My guess is that the essential oils in the product went bad. I know this because I use essential oils and I have smelled that same smell in this product. Once on my face, the smell seemed to dissipate. I also had my housemate give their opinion and pumped one small pump and put it to her nose and she pulled back quickly after smelling it. Dermalogica needs to keep a closer eye on quality control and where these products are shipping from. I am hesitant to buy another bottle to replace this one for fear I'll get another bad bottle as customer service said they can't guarantee if it will happen again. I love Dermalogica products, they are the best and this is the first time with a bad experience.

The serum probably works for some. My skin is smoother. But, it also causes my face to breakout. Also the price is very high. I have had great results with other Dermalogica products. This one is very disappointing.

I debated this purchase as it is pricey but I am glad I did! With patience and consistency it has improved the texture around my mouth and lower cheeks. I've begun using it just prior to my home red light treatment too. I believe it improves the absorption.

Love the photo nature oxygen cream but the photo nature firming cream burned my skin. This one is not for me and I'm upset I spent 155.00 for a product I can't use.

I've been using the phyto nature oxygen cream at night for a while now and absolutely love it. It made such a difference to my skin's look and feel. It creates this beautiful glow every single time and makes my skin feel nourished and "happy". Because of my great experience with the phyto cream, I decided to try out the phyto-nature firming serum --- it's quite a bit more expensive than what I'm comfortable with actually, but I'm glad I did try it. It has a beautiful rich texture and glides on easily. I feel like my skin looks younger - and more glow-y. I'm really happy with this serum and am so thankful that Dermalogica launched both of the phyto products -- the cream and the serum. They've made such a difference for me. Even though I use the phyto cream every night, I don't use the serum every night... I use it about two or three times at night -- I don't feel like I need it every night at this point, and also, this way the bottle lasts longer. Oh, and a little goes a long way!

I have purchased multiple bottles of this serum to have the same issue. The dual product does not come out of the pump. Too expensive to not fix the known issue.
Lori R. from Undisclosed
I decided to splurge on the oxygen cream and serum because it looked so good for your skin. When I put it on my face, it made my face get bright red and feel itchy. My entire face looked extremely red. There was also very little serum in the bottle for the high price. I will never buy again.

Love this product, I've noticed am improvement in fine lines after using for 3 weeks!
Jane G. from Undisclosed
Seems to work on the fine lines under the moisturizer and primer and makeup!

Another luxury that actually works. Always choose this as one of my samples!

Pump does not work on this product. Only one serum comes out.

I have been using this for a year I love it though it is expensive
Joanne R. from Undisclosed
It doesn't make much of a difference with fine lines.
Deborah M. from Undisclosed
This product is great—-when the pump works. Most of the time, one side of the pump clogs and requires constant cleaning in order to get both serums to pump. This needs to be improved, as I can longer purchase this product even though I like it. Too wasteful and inefficient for the price.

It was way to harsh for my skin. My skin became red and inflamed and it took several days for it to subside.
Rose L. from Undisclosed
Love the way my skin feels and looks, but the smell is awful. I am returning it.
Laura A. from Undisclosed
It keeps my skin soft and smooth. Great for the over 40 crowd!
Abigail Z. from Undisclosed
The pump doesn't work properly. There is supposed to be two types of serums that come put ywo different chambers and we mix together in our palm but only one side comes out and not the other.
Rochelle S. from Undisclosed
Please re-work the dispenser. It doesn't work. The product is fantastic when the it dispenses correctly. The company was great about my return! Five stars to Dermalogica!!!
Denise L. from Undisclosed
This should be voted the number 1 serum in the world. I noticed a difference after the first use. It makes the skin smoother and calmer. This is a must-have in your skin care regimen. Great for all ages.
Rochelle from Columbia, Missouri
This is a great product. I gave it four stars only because the product does not dispense properly. I spoke with the Dermalogica and they are working to fix the problem. Otherwise great product for sensitive skin.

I received the Phyto-Nature Firming Serum complimentary from Dermalogica in exchange for my honest feedback.
This is a two-part serum that combines when you pump the bottle. One part is a serum-like consistency, and the other part is similar to an oil. This product applies nicely and gives a bright, youthful, plump appearance to the skin, but it does feel a bit oily/greasy.
Overall, I like the product but can not justify the price.
Wendi from Santa Fe NM
First time I've been disappointed with Dermalogical. This product just didn't do anything for me.
Michele H. from Undisclosed
Love this at bedtime after a thorough cleanse or exfoliation. A little goes a long ways. A really great buy!

Skin feels amazing
