Peptide Cream Reviews my experience

by Christine

Hi Linda,

I just wanted to update you on my recent experience using MD3 copper peptide and face exercises.

I've been doing my facial exercises 3 times a week first thing in the morning before getting out of bed.

I have a Bose radio by my bed which I use as my alarm clock. So I just placed the facial exercise pacing CD in the Bose radio and when the alarm goes off, I just hit the CD.

I move down my bed a bit so my head is not on the pillow, but flat on the bed.

According to the instructional CD and booklet, you get a better workout if your head is flat with the bed or floor.

I think that is because several of the exercises make you lift your head a bit and that makes the exercise more challenging. Boy, I can really feel it around cheeks and chin/neck area the next day!

Then in about 15 minutes I'm off for my shower. After my shower I applied the MD3 copper peptide serum. It really is blue by the way, but it blends in quickly.

Then I wait about 5 minutes while it dries and then apply my moisturizer and foundation.

Well, after about 2 months of doing this regime, I started to notice that I didn't seem to need as much makeup as I did before. My skin just looked smoother and less lined.

Then my coworkers noticed that I looked better and thought I had something done. But it wasn't until my husband noticed that I looked more "rested" and then I knew it was really working.

Thanks for the information. I think I finally found something that really works for me.

Where to buy copper peptide cream
by: Wendy

Hi Christine,

Can you tell me where you bought the MD3 copper peptide? I've never heard of it before. The ones that I saw from SkincareRX are pretty expensive and unfortunately my budget does not allow that luxury.


Hi Christine and Wendy,

Christine, thanks for sharing that information. I'm so glad to hear you found something that works so well for you.

Please keep us up-to-date on how it goes in a few more months.

I know I started to get really good results with face exercises, but it took about 4 months for dramatic results. But, I think I'm older than you :-)

Wendy, you can learn more about copper peptide serum here at copper peptides.

And you can purchase it here at:

NuGlow MD3 Copper Peptide.

Hope this helps.

NuGlow VS. Skin Biology?

by CR

Hi Linda,

I read Pam's comments and I went to the site for NuGlow. It looks interesting and I'm thinking to trying it, but can you tell me how this copper peptide product differs from Skin Biology?


Hi CR,

Thanks for your email regarding copper peptide creams. The best I can tell is both Skin Biology and NuGlow's copper peptide products are pretty similar.

Both are said to contain a special type of copper peptide called glycyl-l-histidyl-l-lysine:copper (II) or GHK. This form is supposed to be a more stable and active form.

This type of copper peptide has been shown in studies to support tissue regeneration and wound healing.

But NuGlow says their product contains a patented delivery system along with (SOD) a potent antioxidant. And NuGlow is a lot less expensive.

If you do order, keep the receipt because they automatically sign you up for a membership service - which why you get the product at such a good price. That means they auto-ship a fresh product about every 2 months (or whatever frequency you desire).

So for some reason if you don't like the product, you'll need to call and cancel and you can send your product back for a full refund.

You can also read more here How is NuGlow different? Then click on tab that reads Science.

Hope that helps.

copper peptide eye cream - Keep it in the fridge for best results....
by: Joan

I think NuGlow is cheaper if you sign up and become a member. I get it delivered to my house about every 70 days.

They set up automatic delivery for you for every 60 days, but I didn't need it that often. My copper peptide serum lasts a long time and a tiny bit is usually enough.

So, if you need to you can change your delivery frequency as often as you need.

I just started using their copper peptide eye cream too. It's nice.

Here is a tip: Put your eye cream in the fridge because it helps reduce puffy eyes faster if it's cold. Plus, I think it helps it stay fresher longer rather than sitting on a shelf in a hot, damp bathroom.

NuGlow Reviews? Copper Peptide Creams

by CR

Hi Linda,

Happy New Year! Just wondering if you or any of your readers have used NuGlow and have an opinion. I'm thinking of trying it.


Hi CR,

Happy New Year to you too!

So far, I have received a few positive comments from people who have tried the new advanced GHK CU copper peptide product, but I just found out about this 2 months ago.

When it comes to using copper peptides, you really need to give it time to see results.

Sometimes people find a product that makes their skin look and feel great immediately, but it really does nothing - in the long run - to prevent or slow down skin aging.

According to studies, copper peptides are supposed to work at a deeper level and stimulate skin repair and wound healing.

The original peptides I used a few years back were pretty strong and if you didn't apply them sparingly, they could cause some minor irritation in the beginning - until you worked your way up.

This sort of reminds me of the experience many people get with Retin-A. A little goes a long way, especially in the first few months. But the results are measurable and noticeable.

I truly believe in the benefits of GHK CU copper peptides and have been using them for about 7 years. I recently started using Nu-Glow when I got a sample in the mail a few months ago.

According to their literature, this version is not as irritating as the older copper peptide products, contain added anti-oxidants like green tea and vitamins A & E, and contains a patent pending delivery system for better/faster results.

I'll be looking for more feed back and will post my feed back after a few more months of using it.

The other benefit of Nu-glow is that it's much less expensive than what I used before. That's because after your first purchase you automatically become a member of NuGlow and receive a membership discount.

However, this means if you don't like the product you must contact them within 50 days of receiving your order (which is plenty of time to decide in my opinion) to cancel. If not, you get placed on their auto-ship program.....which is fine with me because I plan on using the product anyway.

And, you can slow down the shipment depending on how fast or slow you use the product.

You can read more about NuGlow Science here and copper peptides here.

ZenMed or NuGlow Copper Peptides?
by: CR

Hi Linda,

I really need your expert advice. I've learned about ZenMed and NuGlow through your column (thanks for the info).

I have a limited budget, and I'm trying to decide whether to purchase ZenMed or NuGlow. I used to suffer from acne and my skin has small holes and hyperpigmentation.

After speaking to the customer rep at ZenMed, I'm sure their products can help. On the other hand, I've used copper peptides before and I already know they work well.

I have nasal labial folds and I was told by the customer rep at NuGlow that their products can help this condition.

Both products are similar in costs and both have 60-day, money-back guarantees. Which product would you go with?


Hi CR,

I think it all depends on what you're trying to do. NuGlow products seem to be specifically designed to help reduce the appearance of skin aging.

You said your problems are mostly due to post acne damage like scars, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation……......then personally I would use Zenmed products – like the Skin Eraser kit.

If you read the information on their website, they state that the Skin Eraser kit helps exfoliate, smooth, and improve skin tone and color – especially for those suffering from scarring or hyperpigmentation like freckles and brown spots.

Mind you, over-the-counter products can help "improve" skin appearance, but to completely remove brown spots or smooth out (small holes), scarring, or pockmarks – professional services like laser treatments usually offer the best results.

In reference to nasal labial folds, I'm not sure any topical product will complete lift/fill them the way dermal fillers - like Restylane injections can.

However, it seems that facial exercises might help keep the skin firmer - over time – especially if you start doing them before skin aging gets too far along.

According to Carolyn, from Facial Fitness, It's much easier to prevent then to correct.

I found the Best Peptide Cream that is cheaper than Neova

by Pam
(New York)

Hi Linda,

I used the Neova copper peptide cream recommend on your site and really liked it. But I found another one called Nu Glow and it's much cheaper than Neova. It's almost half.

I got a sample in the mail. The company says it has a special ingredient to help it get absorbed quicker.

Just wanted to let you know because it's almost half the price. Do you know anything about it? What's your thought?


Hi Pam,

Yes, I just found out about this copper peptide line of products and was going to write about it.

I got a sample in the mail too and liked they way it felt. My skin felt more hydrated and plumper.

From what the literature said it's supposed to be even more powerful that Neova because it has a patent pending delivery system. Plus it also contains anti-oxidants.

If anyone is interested, you can read more here:

Copper Peptide Cream

They also have other copper peptide based products like night creams, eye creams, and skin lightening serums.

The discount is actually 70% of the retail cost. What happens is when you make your first purchase you automatically get signed up to become a member. This also means you get signed up for auto delivery service.

So if you find you don't care for it, make sure to contact them to cancel you deliver. But you have plenty of time to give a good try as they offer a 60 day money back guarantee.

P.S. Keep me in touch and let me know how you like the results and if you try their other products. I'll post here once I've given it a good 60 day try.

peptide skin care serum
by: Lorie

Hi Linda,

I just got a sample of the NuGlow copper peptide skin serum in the mail today.

I've been using Neova from SkincareRX, but will give this one a try as it is cheaper.

Are you still recommending NuGlow? Or is there something better? I would love to save money if this product is as good as the other one.

So far, I've been very happy with Neova and my skin has a nice glow and looks hydrate.

Ok, thanks for your help.
P.S. Love your site!
Editors Note:

Hi Lorie,

Yes, IMO, I think the NuGlow is still the best on the market. I'm so surprised that more companies haven't come out with a pure copper peptide cream or serum!

Many skincare products have a smidget of peptides - but not enough to do the job of anti-aging skincare. I think the reason is copper peptides have become very expensive.

With that note - make sure you understand that NuGlow automatically puts you on a monthly renewal list and will charge your credit card.

So, opt out of that right from the start and if you like the product you can sign up for auto-renewal later.

Copper peptide cream. Nuglow vs Neova?

by M.J.
(Seattle, Wa.)

I'm interested in starting copper peptide skin care routine, but am not sure which ones to try.

I see a lot of skin care products that contain copper peptides from Neova and recently received a sample in the mail from Nuglow.

Does anyone have any suggestions? What have you used? Why did you choose it and what did it do for you?

Sorry for all the questions, but I'd like to hear feedback from you all before plucking down $$.

Some of the copper peptides I've seen it not that cheap.

Thanks so much,

Hey M.J.,

I think both Nuglow and Neova copper peptide skin care products are excellent. The Neova seems to be more richer and seems more appropriate for dry skin (in my opinion).

I also like Nuglow, because it's concentrated and lasts a long time. They say it's more easily absorbed too due to a special patented delivery system.

Sorry, I couldn't tell you which one to choose. I've used both over the last few years.

MD3 copper peptide cream is less irritating
by: Anonymous

Hi MJ,

The Nuglow copper peptide cream is much less irritating that other ones that I've used.

I used to have to work up to using it a few times a week, because it caused so much irritation, itching, and peeling.

copper peptide serum. Which is better Nuglow or Neova
by: Anonymous

Did you compare the prices between Neova and Nuglow? Nuglow is much cheaper, but you have to join their membership.

Also, by joining their membership they'll automatically re-send you a new shipment every 2 months and will charge your credit card too.

So, if you don't think you want to continue to use it or just want to try it, tell them this when you place your order.

Other than that I like it and have been using it since August. I got a trial sample in the mail.

Here is more information: copper peptide cream,
