Halt the havoc. This silky serum is a breakthrough intensive treatment for distressed skin. It goes on gently and—like a dressing—comforts and shields your complexion from outside stressors. Absorbing quickly, it then releases concentrated nutrients that powerfully amplify skin’s own natural well-being. The result? Skin’s integrity is restored for a youthful glow. The formula features our proprietary complex and a host of activating plant extracts, specifically:

  • Our unique Medicure Stem Cell Complex , derived from raspberry and other plant cells, to drive powerful nurturing capabilities.

  • Kombucha, a multi-tasking smoother, also helps to brighten skin so dullness, roughness, and the appearance of wrinkles seem to disappear.

  • Chuchuhuasi extract, a soothing tonic derived from Amazonian tree bark, delivers a potent dose of nutrients.

Phormula 3-9 Repair Serum is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Visible difference I decided to give this serum a try after having satisfying results with the Phelityl night cream and Phormula 3-9 repair cream. The texture of the serum is light and easily absorbent. I use a full pump each time and warmed it up with both hands before patting it onto my skin. I'm not sure if it's the correct way to apply but I find it works for me very well. Also I use it only at night and with the Phelityl night cream, sometimes with other night creams too and it instantly makes a difference. I notice it brightens up my skin and makes it very soft and smooth. Overall a high quality and effective product, I use it mainly to prevent aging and it works really well. For oily/combination skin types I'd suggest to pair the serum with medium moisturizer, and for dry/mature skins I'd say heavier creams will be needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Use I really enjoy using this serum. It smells nice, which is actually pretty rare in the various serums I've used. I also really like the container and the way it's dispersed, it's much easier to control than the typical dropper for me, so I feel like I'm getting the perfect amount and not wasting anything. It's also extremely hydrating for my skin and seems to have really helped the problem areas, namely dryness, breakouts and redness for me. However, at this price-point, I'm not sure if it's the right product for me. It's a great serum, but it's not performing miracles like I'd want it to at this cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little too floral for me but works well! Phormula 3-9 Repair Serum is okay. It comes in a very attractive bottle. The instructions are straightforward and easy to understand. The serum itself is silky, absorbs easily, isn’t greasy, and it’s easy to apply. I love how hydrated and moisturized my skin is after using this serum. It seems to work well and leaves my skin looking and feeling moisturized and hydrated. The only thing I really don’t care for is the smell but that’s probably a personal preference. I wish it was less floral. Otherwise, I would recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skin Savior! Going through chemo has left my skin so dry these past few months and the only products that have kept me glowing are the Phormula 3-9 Repair Serum coupled with the Phormula 3-9 Repair Cream. My initial thought was to use during treatment but my skin looks and feels better than ever so I may be hooked for life. The Serum is lightweight, easily absorbed, I don't notice any odor but makes a huge impact. Hard to explain but it smooths, and protects the skin but also leaves me glowing. I use 1 full pump of the product and spread all over my face. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly lovely So far I am quite impressed by Phormula 3-9. First, the packaging is nothing less than premium. The serum itself is an airless pump, so the integrity of the product will not be compromised by bacteria or light or moisture. One tiny pump is enough to cover my face, and the texture is so silky. It looks creamy but is not at all greasy. The fragrance is light and fresh. My skin is calmer, smoother, and seems to be better hydrated at the end of the day. Additionally, the shipping department goes to great lengths to ensure safe delivery. They use crush-proof bubble sheets and sturdy cartons. There is no chance of leakage or breakage. I am very pleased with this serum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liquid gold I absolutely love this serum. I had my daughter almost three years ago and have had so many changes in my facial skin: dull, dry, uneven with patches of Melasma. Since using this product, I’ve noticed my skin is more vibrant looking, even toned, soft and the patches of Melasma are fading. This is one of the reasons why I have been calling it liquid gold. The serum itself is light, distributes evenly and absorbs nicely. It has a very pleasant, sweet scent to it. I just massage in a full pump before I go to bed and in the morning. It leaves my face feeling so soft and smooth. I highly recommend this or any EL product, you won’t be disappointed. (For reference I am 38 years old with dry to normal skin)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny! The Phormula 3-9 Repair Serum is worth every penny! This serum is silky, lightweight, absorbs easily into my skin and doesn't leave behind an oily residue. It doesn't have an overwhelming fragrance to it and I enjoy using one pump every night before applying the Erno Laszlo Hydra-Therapy Sleep Mask. Not only is it soothing and nourishing but I have seen a noticeable difference in the appearance of my skin when it comes to dryness. I live in the northeast where mother nature hasnt decided what season it is yet and with the weekly switch between super cold and super hot my skin has taken a beating. Additionally, the packaging is aesthetically pleasing and smart. I like that it isnt a dropper, Ive never done well with droppers and I always feel like Im wasting product with them. My skin feels hydrated and looks brighter too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS SERUM! What a great serum!. I loved the scent, it was pleasant as opposed to a heavy chemical smell that most serums have.I also really enjoyed the design of the container and dispenser, it helped me get just enough product , not too much or too little. It's also extremely hydrating and smooth, calms my redness and acne, good oil control as well! Only thing i dont like is the price, i feel like i could get the same thing for less.

I hope it is ok to use the 3.9 repair serum followed white marble translucent cream?

Asked by: Jaimee
Serums should be used prior to a moisturizer. Our recommended routine would be cleanser, toner, serum, then moisturizer. A serum penetrates more deeply into the skin then a moisturizer does, so it is most effective when used first. You can think of your moisturizer as a step to seal everything in.

I have both transphuse night & day serum and Phormula 3-9 repair serum. Can I use both together if so, which goes first? If not, should they be paired with similar products and should I focused on one issue one at a time

Asked by: Muertisha
You can use up to two serums at a time, and the way to use them is entirely up to your choice. You can mix them together and apply at the same time, use one after another, or choose the one that best suits your skin through the day or evening and use it one at a time. Being that the Phormula 3-9 Serum is for healing skin, I would recommend it as a spot treatment wherever you may have areas in need of repair, and then you can use the Transphuse Day & Evening at the intended times as an all over treatment.
