I have just filled in the form and was at the last question where you have to say why you want to try it. I had to go and sort something out and when I got back to it the form has been submitted without me answering the last question. I have tried clicking the link but I just get the Thanks message. Is there any way I can answer the last question by email or message?

iseenodust Thu 12-Jul-12 14:29:06

Agree with BoomD first time I've ever ticked the oldest category box. Suggests MNHQ should only select volunteers from that group by way of apology for huge hurt and increased depth in frown lines caused.

I'm up for it! I only feel 21 but my skin tells another story.

Shakey1500 Sat 14-Jul-12 22:00:57

doughnutty has reminded me of something.

Years ago my sister's old schoolfriend married a rather famous sportsman and was invited to the wedding (Hello mag etc). Fast forward to two years ago and my sister was getting married. Invited famous sportsman and wife (rude not to). I was to sit next to them so was bit starstruck excited to meet them and keen to make some small talk etc before sitting down.

They approached, I held out my hand and her friend uttered the (now) immortal line....."You must be (sister)'s mum, lovely to meet you".....

I just about managed to utter "No, I'm her YOUNGER BY FIVE YEARS sister...see you at the table" before sobbing in the loos.

<true story, hoping for sympathy vote wink >

WillNeverGetALicence Sat 14-Jul-12 22:30:53


Done (fingers crossed)

insanityscratching Wed 18-Jul-12 21:34:49

Choclatespread Sat 21-Jul-12 10:13:07

Hope I get this one!

MildredIsMyAlterEgo Wed 25-Jul-12 11:15:04

Ooh mine has arrived! Will commence testing tomorrow morning smile

CatPower Wed 25-Jul-12 13:47:20

Mine came today too!

Mine came today too! It took a lot of pumping to get it started, but the smell is very subtle- which I like- and the texture is light and almost gel like. Too soon for a result, but I haven't broken out in hives or anything!

Mintyy Wed 25-Jul-12 19:18:00

Harrummpphh sad

LynetteScavo Wed 25-Jul-12 19:23:39

Mine has arrived. smile

Postman first tried to deliver it when we were out and left a card, then sent another postman back with it to see if we were in. (We were! smile) Ace postal service or what?

cocobongo Wed 25-Jul-12 21:28:57

ooh, mine has arrived too. but- what's the thing with recording a video diary? is anyone going to do this? i presumed it would just be leaving feedback or completing a survey......

WillNeverGetALicence Wed 25-Jul-12 21:58:25

I was wondering about this too cocobongo...

Fillybuster Wed 25-Jul-12 23:27:52

Just came on to check I hadn't completely missed something when I signed up....was a bit hmm about the recording part of the trial! Relieved to see I'm not the only one - hopefully MN Towers can clarify?

Mine arrived this morning - great timing as was worrying about hag-like new lines late last night. Love the texture and smell, skin felt v nice after. Are you supposed to moisturise on top? I assume so, as there's no SPF in the serum....

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 26-Jul-12 10:29:10

KatieB is looking into the video diary...

MyMamaToldMe Thu 26-Jul-12 11:36:57

Got mine too - used it last night and this morning - winkles are still there wink. I'm also interested to know if the video diary is really necessary? I did do a video last night and this morning, and will do it every other day if I have too, but if I don't, then I would really rather not!

LynetteScavo Thu 26-Jul-12 17:18:04

Well, I can't do a video diary, but I can take some photos.

polly164 Fri 27-Jul-12 16:51:39

Mines arrived!

Really like the texture of it, skin feels lovely after using it.

I too am unsure about the video diary, nothing about that when I signed up.

Not sure I can do a video diary, any ideas about this please.

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 27-Jul-12 17:05:04

Hi all, I'm just waiting to hear back about the video diaries, please bear with me - I'll have an update on Monday. thanks

TheScottishPlayer Sun 29-Jul-12 14:57:30

My serum has been languishing in the post office for a few days so I was pleased to finally try it this morning. My face does feel lovely and smooth. It's pretty expensive for me though so it will need to do wondrous things to keep buying it grin

I also wondered about the video diary, but I see that MNHQ is already on to that so will keep checking back.

Finally got mine today. I am looking forward to looking much younger grin

Curlybrunette Mon 30-Jul-12 22:00:56

I got mine, thanks so much Origins and MN.

I've only used it once (this morning) but like it so far. Looking forward to it wiping the years off me ;-)

NotLikeThatYouWont Mon 30-Jul-12 22:12:16

Mine's arrived! smile Looking forward to getting started as am looking particularly ancient just now but will leave it until we have an answer about the video diary. I'd really prefer not to as I hate even being photographed blush. But perhaps the serum will make me so radiant that I don't care any more grin.

Many thanks to Origins and MN for the chance to try this!

MyMamaToldMe Tue 31-Jul-12 09:54:15

Anyone else broken out in spots since using this product? I feel like a teenager again - and not because I have smooth unlined skin!

CatPower Tue 31-Jul-12 13:08:02

MMTM - yes! I've come out in wee red spots all around my mouth and nose. The rest of my face and neck is very smooth, but the spots are very annoying.

MildredIsMyAlterEgo Tue 31-Jul-12 23:07:52

MMTM me too! I'm sporting an attractive little crop on my forehead - I'm hoping it's just my skin 'adjusting' to the product....

Has anyone else noticed that it looks a bit like brownish phlegm when you pump it into your hand? shock Feels nice on the face/neck though grin

insanityscratching Sun 12-Aug-12 21:38:25

I have spots too did think it might be hormonal but as they are persisting I'm not so sure. Hopefully my skin will settle soon.

mamado Mon 13-Aug-12 10:41:07

Been using it for a week now... The initial spots have calmed down (thankfully). It's lovely to use... Feels and smells nice.... Can't say I've noticed any difference yet!

Coca Wed 15-Aug-12 13:49:26

I've been using it for a while now and my skin feels nice once it is on and I've stopped using a primer everyday.

CatPower Sat 18-Aug-12 14:26:10

I've been using it morning and night, and my skin does feel a lot smoother. I get a very dry forehead but that's far better now. I have to be careful using it around my nose/mouth as I've had some breakouts there, but overall I'm really happy with the serum.
