It’s no secret that I am a skin care junkie and love products that will help with anti-aging and to protect my skin. While it may not be an ideal for most – I love getting new skin care to try and products as gifts so I figured it would be fun to share something with you that I have been enjoying lately. TelomErase Triple Telomere Targeting Serum is the next generation of anti-aging, age-defying technology and I think it would make a great gift for the skin care lover in your life. Today I’m going to share a little about the product with you.
TelomErase Triple Telomere Targeting Serum is a 6-in-1 Multi-corrective that erases, tightens, brightens, blurs and moisturizes as well as regenerates. The product contains the most powerful combination of new ingredients available to help visibly reduce the appearance of sags & bags, dark circles, fine lines, sun spots, redness, pore size and laxity. I received sample sizes of this serum to try from Reviv Serums. The full sized product is currently on sale for $143.00 (retail $299.00) and includes 60 mL / 2 fl. oz. worth of product. When I first seen the price of this product, I literally almost fell off my chair. This product is expensive and I’ll be the first person to admit it. Is it worth the cost? Let’s learn a little more about it, shall we?
The TelomErase Serum is the first product of its kind with three proven telomere targeters: Cycloastragenol + Renovage + Telosomyl (all of which I have no idea about – just saying). These ingredients are the latest in cosmetic chemistry spotlighting telomere stabilization. You can check out the video to get a little more information here.
A conference by Nobel laureate Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn at the recent American Academy of Dermatology conclave in San Francisco underlined the clear correlation between telomere length and integrity with overall health and skin condition. Protecting telomeres is a valid strategy to maintain healthy skin, Dr. Blackburn noted. A study from Harvard Medical School showed that telomere shortening is a root cause of cellular aging. An enzyme, telomerase, has been shown to slow or even reverse telomere shortening that occurs as we age, but the amount of telomerase declines as we get older. The development of a sensitive and efficient telomerase activity detection method has only recently made it possible to quantitate telomerase activity.
Research states that in a 30 day, 22 person consumer study of TelomErase, over 90% of consumers tested and noted a reduction in the appearance of skin laxity and skin roughness. 88% agreed that the area around the eye appeared improved and 74% of testers also saw a reduction in the appearance of redness and large pores. 90% agreed that it made their skin more soft and smooth.
So what about me, did I get any results after using these for about 2 1/2 weeks?? Well… first, let me start by saying that I felt and seen visible results instantly. I love a product that can provide instant results, it’s gratifying to say the least. I noticed my pores and fine lines kind of plumped up (if that makes any sense) and my pores were less visible after applying the product. A little of the product goes a long way – literally, a little drop or pump of the product smoothed onto the skin is all I needed. I also love that after just a few days, I noticed that the areas on my face where I tend to get the most dry – did not get many dry patches as it normally would, especially during the colder months like it is now. My skin feels smooth and soft and when I apply blush on my cheeks, it smooths on nicely – without primer. When this serum is applied to my under eyes – I noticed my puffiness diminished a lot – which is a huge deal. The last few days I have been without sleep and even my dark circles were reduced.
This product has a liquid like texture and squeezes easily out of the pump. It reminds me of a vitamin c serum, very similar in texture and applies easily and smoothly. I love that it doesn’t leave my skin sticky after application and dries / soaks into my skin quickly. It’s kind of orange or butter yellow in color.
I totally think this product works well and I would continue to use it. However, the price point for the full size bottle is out of my reach and not something I would be able to afford. This seurm does have key ingredients that I use daily in my skin care like Hyaluronic Acid, which means I am getting some of the benefits of my favorite serums with use of this product and I didn’t notice any adverse effects to my skin – which is a great thing since my skin is so darn sensitive. At initial application I did notice a little tingling sensation, but not so much that it burned or made my face irritated.

Would I buy this product myself? Well, it’s completely out of my price range at the moment, but if I had an expendable income – YES, I would. I love how my face feels after testing this product myself and I think it’s a great serum. I just can’t afford it and don’t think I will any time soon. I think it’s a great product and I would continue to use it if it wasn’t so costly. Considering the ingredients and what makes this serum so unique, I can understand that the chemistry makeup of this serum is what makes it so expensive, but unfortunately it is out of my financial reach. I totally suggest it however, and would recommend to anyone that can afford it.
What about you? Have you heard of this product before or anything with similar chemistry? Would you spend a hefty cost on a product that offered the chance for results to that of the fountain of youth?
