”I must say this isn’t bad at all. It’s not that good as a collagen serum from another brand I’m using, but for the price you paying it’s decent. I need to use it for a longer period to see if it works magic like to some people (since I was already using something that help with lines). Good product.”

”I absolutely adore this product! I can see these fine lines on my forehead and beginning lines along my mouth of marionette lines, and it’s been driving me crazy. Honestly, I was thinking fillers would be the only way to go, but I was wrong! Deciem’s Argireline solution is a godsend. I no longer have those fine lines on my forehead and between my brows, and those marionette lines have softened dramatically. The formula is watery, but it absorbs quickly, and doesn’t leave any residue. I can easily put it in specific areas without wasting any on the areas I don’t need it, and the difference is visual within minutes. It’s amazing! I love it so much, and have stocked up, you should too!”

”I have had deep wrinkles in my forehead since my late 20s. It’s really the only thing that makes me look closer to my actual age. I did Botox briefly, which helped immensely, but was unable to tolerate due to other issues. This stuff is obviously not going to work as well as Botox- there is no reason to believe that it would. However, I can understand why Argireline has been compared to Botox. When I use this, I see a visible reduction in how deeply my skin creases with movement (as compared to when I don’t use it). In other words, it works exactly as Argireline is advertised to work. The formula is very thin and absorbs well- I’ve had no issues with stickiness and additional products later over very nicely.”

This product works wonders! I can not recommend enough. After using it my skin literally feels brand new. I’ve always struggled with acne and this makes a huge difference. I will definitely buy this again so worth the money. This is a must have part of my skincare routine. Use carefully and know your products and you can customize your perfect skincare routine.15 days ago
I actually really like this product. I read some scientific articles in Europe about how argireline can help minimize wrinkles, and the case study looked extensive, yet had high yields, and was hooked. I can say that I’ve been using it regularly for the past month, and I do notice a slight tightening effect. My forehead wrinkles are reduced but my smile lines are probably not going to be affected at all sadly, since they’re less of a wrinkle problem and more with age.5 months ago
I'm in my early 20s and have dry, dehydrated, acne prone skin and a few deep set horizontal forehead creases that my foundation loves to settle into and emphasize. I've considered getting injections for it but they aren't in the budget right now and I can't wear silicones, which are the go to for skincare and makeup to hide creases, so I've sort of accepted that there isn't much I can do - until I tried this product. I don't use anywhere other than my forehead because that is the only place I have wrinkles to fill. I primarily use the Drunk Elephant line, so I apply their hydrating serum all over and then tap a couple of drops of this serum over the lines. I then wait about 15 mins or so and then apply my active serums. This is because argireline is more effective in when used with water based solutions, but if I am in a rush I will apply actives and oils right away and I don't notice much of a difference. I have used for about a month and I will say that the results come quickly, but they also go away as soon as you stop applying. It took about 3 applications to see a noticeable difference and it eliminated my deep lines by about 75%! The lines aren't noticeable at all if I have a bare face and aren't very noticeable if I'm wearing makeup but they are still lightly there. It seems to work by plumping the skin under the creases so the lines are 75% less noticeable because they are only 25% as deep as before. If you can't get injectables and your dynamic lines bother you this is such a great option because of how affordable it is and is temporary acting so if it happens to bother you or have a side effect you can just discontinue use instead of waiting for the injectables to clear out. I highly recommend this to anyone with lines or wrinkles. I do wish this was part of a multi-action serum because it does add an extra step into my day and if I skip even one application it is obvious. Note: my lines are from a result of muscle tension, squinting, etc and not as a result of aging, so my results might not be the same as those with lines and wrinkles as a result of aging
This has the consistency and look of water, so automatically you feel like you’re applying water to your face. The bad thing about that is it’s hard to target the product without getting it all over the place. The good thing about it is, it absorbs very quickly. It says to only apply it to the forehead and around eyes, to target wrinkles, but I also use it on my neck. It takes a while (about half the jar) but I noticed that the “11” between my brows, and the long deep wrinkle across my forehead are NOTICEABLY less pronounced. Actually, the “11” is almost nearly gone. I think this product in conjunction with a Glycolic Acid have made a significant difference in the appearance of my wrinkles. Would definitely recommend...for those that are patient ;)5 months ago
Just notice how everyone seems to always be looking down nowadays.... why? Because they’re always looking down looking at something on their phones, laptops, etc. Pretty harmless, but it eventually can cause wrinkles on your neck - tech neck! Even the young generation, having lines on their necks. You may find that argireline is usually one of the components of a good wrinkle remedy, which by the way always takes time and patience to get rid of. It’s not magic, that instantly gets rid of it. But it actually works, at least for me. I’ve seen a difference before I started using it. It’s not totally gone, but improved definitely. Considering that I am now looking down on my phone making a review.😉5 months ago
