I had no expectations when starting to use this product. I have to confess to not even reading any of the blurb or press coverage beforehand. I am a bit of a product junkie (as one look in my bathroom will confirm) so am always keen to try anything new.
The first differentiator is that the product is in fact 2 separate ones which you pump onto your hand and mix together before applying to your face. This is what almost instantly highlighted the difference to me. Although my skin felt incredibly smooth-almost glasslike, and I’m fairly convinced my pigmentation is more even, I always find it hard to be objective when looking in the mirror to determine if any product has made an actual difference.
Skin significantly smoother
But the back of my hands told a very specific story. Within just a few days the area on the back of the hand where I had been mixing the product was significantly smoother than the other hand. The skin had a softer more dewy experience . If Biometa Essential Serum has that effect on my hand in such a short space of time, I cant wait see the results of the serum on my face when I have finished the whole pot.
So what does SkinMedica say about this (in my words ) wonder serum? How has it had such a dramatic effect so quickly?
They say: Are you drowning in a sea of products? Well clear your cupboard and fill it with just one multitasking product that works: SkinMedica Biometa Essential Serum!
SkinMedica has revolutionized the anti-aging category with the introduction of Biometa Essential Serum™ – the first all-in-one anti-ageing treatment. It combines the benefits of the patented serum, Biometa Complex™ with potent antioxidants, peptides, skin brightening and innovative anti ageing ingredients that provide long term and immediate plumping of lines and wrinkles.

Biometa™ is combined with APS Corrective Complex, a potent mixture of antioxidants for protection, peptides and speciality ingredients that stimulate the skin’s natural ability to regenerate, fight against environmental damage, immediately smooth & tightens the skin, brighten and lighten the skin and age spots.
My conclusion on Biometa Essential Serum
I say: it is expensive, but use only use a minute amount per application, so it could well work out to be quite reasonable if you work out the cost per application. Because it addresses a number of different skin issues it may enable you to cut down on additional products. It also depends on how much money you spend on facials and salon treatments. I rarely have salon treatments. I do have one favourite, (but I’ll cover that separately) which means I can justify the occasional ‘top end’ beauty buy. It has made a difference in a very short period of time. Definitely worth investing in the run up to a special event -wedding, anniversary. I’ve worked out it probably costs about £10 a week.
Probably a good investment for younger looking skin, and it may replace more than one product on your bathroom shelf.
