I’d love to see an eye cream included in this range.I was contemplating cosmetic procedures before my sample of timeless arrived, so thank you thank you thank you SKN, not only have you saved me the expense but more importantly, precious time as well. I can achieve the rejuvenation I was looking for without having to drive for hours several times to a clinic, I don’t have to leave home at all. I now look forward to the clock ticking by another brand new day means I get to use timeless again.

    Good eye cream for sensitive skin/eyes?I’m lonikog for a good eye cream for a low price. I’ve read many good reviews about the yes to carrots one but that is a little high price wise for me. Though if it’s actually that good then I’ll buy it. But I would rather get something that is effective and good for sensitive skin/eyes for under 10 bucks.

Hi Jody
Thanks for the feedback, its always great to hear customers liking our products. An eye cream is definitely in the pipeline for later this year and I’ll be looking for people to test it for me, if your interested.

    PATRICIA HALE - June 4, 2012

    yes vikki, a good @ home facial for mature skin and younger. with lots of deep cleansing/ moisture, collagen stimulating, products.. also i have sparse eyebrows, does a eyebrow serum actually work? and also good eye cream, with a lifting ingredient?i would love to test many things, but age pension hard to do that, if just 1ar ok? thank you patricia hale.

Maryanne White - March 10, 2012

I would love to see a really good hand cream that works, as you know when you get older your hands age and no matter how hard I try I can never find a good hand cream that not only helps dry hands but one that helps to tighten the skin on the hands. I think this would be a great product to work on. I have tried some of your products and they do work, so PLEASE try and work on the hand cream.
Regards
Maryanne

    About Vicki Law - March 10, 2012

    Thanks Maryanne. I’m with you on the hand cream its the part of my own body that really shows my age.

      PAATRICIA - June 4, 2012

      yes me too maryannne and vikki thank you trish

Terri Conway - March 10, 2012

I have seen many cover up bruise,scar birthmark products,but I suffer a lot from broken capillaries especially on my upper cheast & some on arms & face.only laser treatment seems th be the answer,which is too expensive.The cover up products I have seen are noticableb on the skin.Iam embarrassed as I always get ask what is it that’s on my chest.Tried Bio oil & spent on many products to no avail..Could you possibly look into something for this.
Kindest Regards to a very caring women,
Terri

    About Vicki Law - March 10, 2012

    That is actually a tough one but I know that there are a lot of people who do suffer from the same thing so definitely one to put on the list for more investigation. I’d be interested to know what sort of products you have used, what sort of worked and what didn’t.

Sas Waterman - March 10, 2012

I’d love to see a tinted moisturizer, with a reasonably high SPF, that actual smells pretty nice. Every day, I put on Sunscreen, then tinted moisturizer, then some sort of perfume, if you combined these, that would be so much easier and very convenient.

    About Vicki Law - March 10, 2012

    There is some tight regulations around the use of SPF factor ratings. If the products primary function is as a sunscreen then the product must be registered with the TGA (Theraputic Goods Administration) as a therapeutic good. To go through this process can be expensive and time consuming. But if the sunscreen is not the primary function of the product but its primary function is to moisturize or cover as in a foundation, then it doesn’t need to be TGA approved. It will be classed as a cosmetic and can only show an SPF factor of 15, even if the product does have a certified higher SPF. Have you tried the tinted moisturizer from the Cancer Council, I’m sure what they smell like but I do agree with you that many do have that distinct sunscreen smell.

eptesam - March 10, 2012

hi same as jody and yes i would like to test it out for you thanks

    About Vicki Law - March 10, 2012

    Always looking for people to try samples of products in early development so will definitely put you on the list.

Jennifer - March 10, 2012

I would like to see a slimmer, tiny head epilator for the face.

Iman A - March 10, 2012

Hi,

I have heard of a Foundation that comes out white and then it adjusts to your skin colour once on.Im not too sure of the name of the brand but i know its not available in Australia and i think a product like that would be great and exciting to try.I saw it been talked about in US beauty forums.Also would love to see a product that helps women grow back eyebrows quickly, like a serum or oil developed to help with sparse or over plucked eyebrows.

    About Vicki Law - March 10, 2012

    I know of one product that goes on white and then adjusts to your skin called Almay?? I have no idea how it works so will track it down and purchase it. Its interesting you mentioned eyebrows, our product Uberlash Eyelash Serum can be used on eyebrows as well so may be give it a go. But keep an eye out on our website as a product specifically for the eyebrows is already in the pipeline just not sure yet when it will be available.

      PAATRICIA - June 4, 2012

      this sounds interesting too thank you patricia [trish].

Rosie - March 10, 2012

I think that a new product could be a long lasting liquid eyeliner but in pencil form, which I think is alot easier to use. I have previously used eyeliner pencils but they dont seem to stay on, and I have to keep re-applying it. If you came up with something like this that was also at a reasonable price I would definatley purchase this product (:

Many people suffer from allergies.
Create cream without perfume or coloring to minimize the risk of skin irritations and allergies.

cecelia annett - March 11, 2012

i have been an aged care nurse since graduating back in the sixties. you would not imagine the number of ladies of all ages who have issues with skin irritation under their breasts and tummy folds. obesity is not even required for this to occurr. as a very good nurse i would love to see a company develop an effective feminine excoriation cream. current options are definitely not. happy to trial any products as needed. thanks

Karen knox - March 11, 2012

Since the 70’s-80’s I have not seen a peel-off mask.I’m sure Revlon did one but didn,t last possibly because of the chemicals needed to set quickly and peeloff.I loved it used it alot more than current ones which are an extra to your cleansing routine in time and trying to get them off your face.I also agree with the Aged Care Nurse.An excoriation cream.The aged population is a bigger market than it ever has been before with specific needs.

Andrew Dempsey - March 18, 2012

I am always looking for a proper blackhead removal cream. I get them around my nose and they are realy deep in my pores. My nose also has lots of them and white heads. Ive tried lots of products with no joy.I have oily skin and am not sure if that makes any differance.

maureen mcquillan - March 18, 2012

hi im all for an eyebrow serum to help very over plucked eyebrows grow back,ive heard of hair trials for loss of head hair but none for us who have to pencil our eyebrows in due to extreme thining …..also a cream that has a fading solution in for pigmentation on face ..and i also would be very happy to test out new and exciting products for the mature woman …

    About Vicki Law - March 18, 2012

    I’ll put you on the list of testers Maureen.
    Keep popping back to our website as you in the next few months you may just see an eyebrow serum product appear.

    PAATRICIA - June 13, 2012

    I AGREE WITH MAUREEN, RE: OVER PLUCKED EYEBROWS. YES I WOULD BE HAPPY TO TEST FOR YOU TOO, VIKKI, FOR MATURE SKIN. THANKS.

Kerry - March 18, 2012

I love to see you develop a foundation that works on pigmentaion while wearing it

Maybe even a Body Butter Skin cream make your skin nice and soft and smelling refreshed again.

Laina - March 18, 2012

I’d love to see an exfoliator/mask with mild skin peel properties (possibly glycolic peel?) to be used daily/weekly – something that REALLY cleanses blackheads (I’ve not found a product yet that actually meets the hype) and that reduces pore sizes (so maybe has some sort of toner in it as well). Ideally something that can be quick and easy to use would be fantastic. I think something like this would be an ideal prep for those using the Lift, Firm & Tighten cream. I would definately pay more for a product I can use at home, rather than having to waste money going to a beauty salon to get sub-par results 😉

    About Vicki Law - March 18, 2012

    Hi Laina
    Your exfoliator is an interesting one and one that I have actually been working on. Up to now however I just haven’t been able to get it right but I’ll keep trying.

    Amy - June 18, 2012

    Oooooh Laina, that’s an awesome idea. I second everything you’ve said. .

Fiona - March 18, 2012

i am hoping that someone will bring back bed Sheet sets that have a bottom fitted sheet and a top sheet that has fitted corners at the bottom end…they used to be out when i was young but i have been unable to find them anywhere..

joanne charles - March 18, 2012

Hi Vicki,
I have been using a facial cream from the USA that is an am/pm one called Hydroxatone. It is great and plumps out the fine lines around the eyes and other areas. My skin always looks fresh and I have noticed a big difference with lines around my eyes. People often comment on my skin and the clearness of it, although I do wear estee lauder foundation, but the cream compliments it beautifully as it is a nice rich one.
I hope this information helps.
Cheers
Jo Charles

    PAATRICIA - June 4, 2012

    hi this is very interting to me tooo thank you vikki and joanne… trish hale would love this.

Robbie - March 19, 2012

I know that every female out there goes through this if not once but twice but hundreds of times females have regrowth problems and either dont have the time to go and get the roots re done or they cant afford it. I dont know if there is but there diffenately is the need for a product that if you were getting ready togo out you notice that your roots needed doing. You dont have the time or the product to re do your roots. You whip out this product and either dust or cromb it through your hair and in minutes your hair is just like youve had you roots done at the hairdressers without having to leave the house.

    PAATRICIA - June 4, 2012

    i agree with robbie.. wqoul;d such a hairproduct, be available or can be made up? lots of us, can’t afford hairdresse’s prices.. thanks patricia hale great idea.

    Faisal - June 11, 2012

    I have sensitive skin and roecesa, too. I started using Strivectin for fine lines and while it’s too soon to see a difference, it hasn’t aggravated my skin. I also use Aveda’s Night Nutrients and Tourmaline Eye Creme (I’ve been using the eye creme for a little while now and can see a difference in the darkness under my eyes and the fine lines I’m starting to see).

Roz - March 19, 2012

Hi Vicki
Someone has already mentioned a cream to tighten the skin on hands and I think that is a great idea, but in addition I would like a fade cream that REALLY works to cover age spots on hands, lower arms, chest, and face. I’m 58 and fortunately don’t have as much a problem with wrinkles as I do age spots. I already mentioned the idea of a fade cream for hands on your survey. My hands betray my age away and I’m very conscious of the age spots that seem to multiply every day!!

Sarah Willet - March 19, 2012

I would love to see an affordable cellulite cream that works.

Mandy - March 19, 2012

I try alot of produce for black head but it don’t seem to work so I was just thinking if you could help me

michele - March 21, 2012

l would like to find something that helps with cellulite, being a older woman cellulite is a problem as l still like to wear shorts.

Jayde - April 1, 2012

I would love to see a cream to treat spider veins! I am only 20 and already I have large and clearly visible spider veins covering my legs! I know you can get saline solution injections at the doctors but I know mine will just continue to pop up in new places. They occur so quickly.
Also, on a more superficial level, I wouldn’t mind some sort of bleaching moisturizer or something along those lines. I have quite dark hair (on my arms, stomach and well, everywhere) so it would be fantastic to have a cream that you can just put on daily that lightens the hair colour! (or makes it fall out and never grow back!)

Aimee - April 16, 2012

Hi Vicki
I would love to see an easy to use lash and brow tint for a super quick and safe application that doesn’t end with most of the product finishing up in your eye! I’ve been thinking along the line of a single use applicator that would be similar to a mascara wand, already coated in the tint. I don’t know the logistics re cost or viability but it’s something I have been thinking about for a couple of years…

Adelle stevenson - April 23, 2012

Hi,
I have been a sufferer of chloasma(hormonal pigmentation) for about 10yrs after a doctor in the UK changed my pill and I went in the sun while on holiday. I have tried all sorts of products to try and lighten my pigment but it has never budged. I am currently using a cream from the dermalogist which includes hydraquinoe but as an ex beauty therapist I know it’s not good for my skin long term. If you could develop a miracle cream to lighten my pigment on my forehead I would be forever greatful. I would Happily trial products for you.
Thanks adelle

Amanda - April 23, 2012

Hello all,
I would like a cream for my hands that makes it look young and beautiful. I’m 44 and have very dry hands. This will be great and all woman would love it I know.

PAATRICIA - June 5, 2012

I,would also love to try a facial makep like max factors pancake makeup!!! mum, used to use it and she looked good @ 80yrs. With great coverage. i would love to try a product, like this, and see, if better than, mineral makeup, and usual liquid makeup. If you can, i would love to try it out for you as well, as eye creams, firming, uplifting product .. i have started using the restore, revive, youth cream, only 2 days yet, but feels nice thank you.. Vikki .. regards Patricia [trish] Hale.

Glenny Palmer - June 6, 2012

Someone once made the comment that my face ‘came alive’ when I applied lipstick. I am fair skinned & freckle faced, so I do agree with that comment. But lipsticks don’t stay put, & those that do, feel like they are powder coated. Yuk. I definitely would buy a product that actually dyes the skin on my lips. I know I can have my lips in-filled via tattoo, but oooh ouch! Short of having a good feed of Mulberries I know of no other way to do this. It wouldn’t have to be a permanent dye, but one that would stay put for a week or so would be bonzaa!! I think this is an A-1 idea that many ladies would love.

PAATRICIA - June 8, 2012

I USE AVON MAGIX FACE PERFECTOR. IT’S A LIGHT, AS AIR, GEL-POWDER, THAT GIVES A NATURAL, FLAWLESS LOOK, KEEPING SHINE AWAY.C AN BE USED WITH, OR WITHOUT MAKEUP, DEPENDS, ON YOURSELF.

ALSO I HAVE CURLY, FRIZZY HAIR, SO I USE, ADVANCE TECHNIQUES, DAMAGE REPAIR, OVERNIGHT ELIXER. I JUST PUT A LITTLE IN MY HAIR @ NIGHT COMB THROUGH, AND IN AM ,FRIZZES HAVE GONE AND CURLS APPEAR. NOT EXPENSIVE EITHER. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU HUGSS PATRICIA [TRISH] HALE.

When we talk about creating new products, why not turn back the years? I am Bulgarian and I live in Australia. In Bulgaria I have an old book with different recipes. This book is 60-70 years. Some recipes for creams are very good.

Emily Coutts - June 17, 2012

I’d like to see something for the eyebrows. My eyebrows are somewhat asymmetrical and I have trouble getting my eyebrows waxed in the same shape.. I am tempted to shave them off, regrow them and then have them waxed in a more symmetrical shape. Something that would be useful could be something that stimulates eyebrow hair growth for women who want to renew or their eyebrows – maybe a peptide?

The other thing is maybe some sort of emergency fix stick on eyebrow for women who need to cope with asymmetrical or hairless eyebrows in the mean time?

A kit for getting the right eyebrow shape?

Another product I would be really keen to see come out is an eyedrop that clarifies and brightens the eyes. One that helps the eye white look whiter, and perhaps gives a healthier look to the coloured part of the eye. Maybe it could be moisturising and protecting? We do spend a lot of time in front of computers/UV….?

🙂

Emily Coutts - June 17, 2012

Another thing I’d love to see is a product purely for thickening and improving the texture of skin 🙂

renee annison - June 18, 2012

i would love to see age appropriate make up and beauty kits ,especially targeting those within 20′,30”s 40’s etc

jenny eccleston - June 18, 2012

I am a natural redhead and have no colour in my eyebrows or lashes. I have had them dyed professionally and tried home kits. None seem to do a good job. I’m still left with patchy colour that doesn’t stand out like mascara does. I woul like to see a mascara and eyebrow powder that gives the colour you want and gradually dyes the eyebrows and lashes slowly over time. If you created them i would be up for testing them. Cheers Jenny.

wendy mawhood - June 19, 2012

I would really love a cream to lighten or to make freckles disappear.I have had freckles all my life and nothing seems to do anything to make them go away.Im open to anything as long as it safe!
