Rated 5 out of 5 by Itryeverything Unhappy with Packaging? PLEASE READ
This serum, like most expensive serums I have purchased, is in an opaque pump which is the BEST you could hope for. Here's why: The retinol in this product, along with other plant extracts, antioxidants, and vitamins found in products like these need to be packaged like this to ensure their stability. Packaging them in an opaque pump ensures they are sealed away from AIR AND LIGHT, which break down these products once they are exposed to either. This is the same reason why eye creams in jars are ineffective. So the one review is correct that it is a quality control issue, but only for consumer benefit! Dr Denese sells millions of products, I don't think her company would benefit at all by purposely making opaque bottles to short consumers quantity of product. If unaware of this issue, I could see why one would think that, but the opaque bottles only benefit the consumer in keeping the products stable! I just received this today, so I will have to update after using for a few weeks, but before purchasing I always read these reviews. So, I hope I can help others by posting my thoughts! Thanks to everyone who share their experiences and opinions...it is very helpful & appreciated!

I love both of these products and have used them for years. At 62, I have no eye wrickles and very little sun spots and my face (around my mouth and forehead) is as good as can be expected. I have avoided injectionable thanks to these!
Rated 5 out of 5 by grissie Best eye serum yet
I was not lucky enough to get into the duo offer but I did purchase the eye serum. For my skin it has been the best at showing dramatic results. I have a lot of crappiness or tiny wrinkles under my eyes. This serum penetrates the skin and seems to hydrate and smooth the wrinkles out. It also helps my make up go on smoothly and not cake up as so many others have. I have tried 3-4 of DD eye products but this serum is the only one that has shown results. I'm 63 yrs. young and had my eyes done 13 yrs. ago as a gift to myself on my 50th BDay. With this serum I no longer feel the need to have any more work done. Thank you DD for this great product and for allowing me to age gracefully.
Rated 3 out of 5 by iQgirl After Further Use, Update
I've just completed my first container of FirmaTone. At first, I did not notice any significant change. I then thought there was a slight benefit. Now after completing the bottle, I do not plan to reorder. For the premium, I do not feel using this every other night and taking up space on my bathroom counter is worth it. I feel HydroShield serum is sufficient and works great on a daily basis. The eye product made no significant change.
Rated 4 out of 5 by parisnights Love serum,not roller eye...
Love her products, and I did keep this order. But the dark eye serum did not do a thing for me. I wish her Retinol/face was in different packaging so you can actually see how much product is left. Other than that..I love her anti-aging product line. I often recommend to friends :)
Rated 3 out of 5 by 2005 NO FOR EYES, YES FOR FACE
I like the Retinol for the face, but I have to be careful to make sure I moisturize my face enough as this dries out the face. I haven't seen any great changes in my wrinkles but I hope it is working slowly for the deep wrinkles. The eye product does nothing as I can see. It does not even take away the am puffiness. I am only on my 2nd flex pay and I ran out of the eye product weeks ago. I did not see or feel that the rollers on the eye product were of any use, definitely not soothing. I do not like that Dr. Denese has started putting her products in containers that you are unable to see the amount you have. This makes one wonder if the quality control is good enough to make sure one receives the proper amount. I am giving this 3 stars because of the eye product and because there is no way to know if the face product is really working.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quackie Love it!
I love all of Dr Denese products, but especially this one. Some retinol products leave your skin red not this one. Try it!
Rated 5 out of 5 Retinol Max Face and Eye Duo
I ordered this duo when it was a One Time Only and so glad I did. The face serum has the consistency as Dr. Denese's Hydroshield face serum. It feels oily at first but it will penetrate right into your skin. I use this every other night and the results are amazing. My skin is more even toned, firmer, fine lines are disappearing. The eye serum goes on cool and I use it every morning. It has helped with darkness under the eyes and helped with fine lines. This duo is amazing and I won't go without it. My 18 year old daughter told me today I have no wrinkles around my eye area and I'm 54 years young. Get this duo!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nanna 1 STILL NEED CONCEALER ??
I can't stop the HABIT of putting concealer under My EYES,except I no longer need it for dark circles thanks to Dr. Denese. This started working the very first week !! It feels so cool and soothing and the roll on applicator is a superb delivery system. I use other products in this line and have seen huge improvements in my skin. I'm 55 and trying to look as good as I can, without artificial means.I think anyone would also,get very positive results trying Dr. Denese.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Culebra Great Products
I purchased this duo on AD when it was a One Time Only. I have been using Dr. Denese's firma tone serum since it was first presented. I am never without it. I follow Dr. Denese's advice and use every other night. i feel I see results overnight. She takes her products to the next level with the firma tone products. I have been a Dr. Denese girl since her first appearance on QVC. I am devoted to the pads, hydroshield serum and the neck wrinkle smoother. I am no longer young, but my skin looks fabulous. Highly recommend!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Leahe Dark Circle Going Away!!
Love this duo!!. I got this at the right time!! Been having the worse allergy season ever, had dark circles that went almost to cheeks, no kidding!! The eye retinol is helping. I could see difference after several apps, but waited to do review. It has improved dark circles, but still a work in progress. The skin around my eyes looks softer and smoother. Retinol for face is great, skin has more even tone, looks healthier and not getting redness/irratation from prescription retinol. Thats a big plus for me.
Love all Dr Denise products I have tried. I am retired, easy pay helps me get the products I need. More easy pay please!
Thks Dr Denise your the best!!
Rated 4 out of 5 Jury's still out ...
I find this serum to be luxurious at first, but I'm not sure it's enough hydration for me. I tried this with the Hydroshield Face Emulsion, but within a short period of time I had very little hydration on my face. I think I prefer her Hydrate, Firm and Correct kit these products. I fear it's going back, as it's way too expensive to keep.
