Has anyone tried either hydroxatone, or radialabs - or both? I noticed an ad on facebook and showed a model before and after using the combination of these products. Just wondered if anyone has any thoughts -

What you seek can not be found in a jar, bottle or can.

It can be found in a healthy diet , not smoking cigarettes, exercise, plenty of water, 8 hrs of sleep and being happy as you can.

Everything else is snake oil and a waste of time.

Gave up on those type products years ago (due to: rashes, not working, expense). I have found great results by eating healthy, exercise, and using only pure natural products on my skin

Not everything else is a waste, or snake oil.

Unfortunately, unless you live in a geo-bubble, your skin is subject to modern pollutants. Plowing the fields for your supper and chanting kumbaya is no longer sufficient, if you are attempting to stave off the ravages of time as long as possible. Also, not all pure natural products are healthy, or even useful for your skin.

Having said that, many of these skin preparations contain mostly fillers, with individual, minute quanties of ingredients that are actually beneficial to the skin. They do this so they can make claims such as "Sesquahydroquinsinol.3 has been proven in laboratory tests to improve the appearance of wrinkled skin in as little as 20 minutes, and lasts for up to 72 hours!"

Of course, what they don't tell you, is that they injected 2ccs of pure sesquahydroquinsinol.3 under a lab rat's fur, and on the 73rd hour, the rat exploded.

But it DID improve the appearance of that wrinkled rat. And it would improve your appearance too, if you injected the human proportion of 2cc's of it under your skin. However, since it's only .08ccs in a 24-ounce jar of artificially perfumed petroleum jelly (mineral oil) and sheep-wool dander (lanolin), it's not going to do diddly squat for your skin. Except maybe make it greasy.

You've seen a visible difference with the copper peptides? I spoke with my derm (phd in pharmacology as well) about them and he just smiled at the notion. I saw no difference.

I use the patented Skin Biology Copper Peptides. Loren *****rt, the owner, has the patent. Maybe you weren't using real copper peptides.
