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 64.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best serum I have tried This is a pretty amazing serum. Most serums I have used are colorless, thin and more like an oil. A lot of them are also quite greasy. This serum has a slight brown tint to it and is the consistency of a thinner lotion with zero greasy feeling after using it. This goes on easily and very little is needed. The pump gives the perfect amount. It absorbs almost instantly. I barely have to wait before applying my lotion. The scent is really nice. It is light but very pleasant. I am seeing a noticeable difference in my skin. My skin looks more evenly toned and bright. I haven't tried any serum that gives me the results this one does.

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 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 5 out of 5 by from Instant results! After just a week of using the serum, my face was noticeably smoother, clearer, and even the red scars I had from acne were starting to fade away. It is pretty hydrating compared to the Shiseido Power Concentrate Serum I was using before, but nothing special in that aspect. I usually use two pumps everytime, day and night. It goes on very smoothly and is absorbed very quickly as well. Has a faint scent to it that is fairly nice. It also leaves a shimmery glow on my fingers but you cannot really see it once it is applied. Overall, this would be something I would try if you have scars on your face and looking to clear up your skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxurious serum! Phormula 3-9 serum promises to be a winner and great addition to my skin care routine. I have only been using it one week but I am finding that I have added it to both my morning and bedtime skincare routine before applying my moisturizers. It has a way of disappearing immediately. Soaks into your skin quickly. My skin feels and looks smoother and one area on my left cheek is possibly improving. Will need a little more time to see ultimate results. I am 60 and although I am a long time Laszlo user I haven’t indulged in this serum because of the higher price however it is much less expensive than top brands in the department stores! I always go back to Laszlo eventually!

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 What a glow! I absolutely love the way this serum made my skin feel and look. I live in Cleveland and we’re just coming off a harsh winter and my skin needed help! My complexion has gone from a dry and dull texture to a more firm and glowing complexion. It’s not greasy at all and didn’t cause any breakouts on my sensitive skin. I really like how quickly it absorbs into my skin. I was just in Florida for work and got several compliments on my complexion. I think they expect people from Ohio to look like we never see the sun. People thought I was joking when I told them I was in my early 40s. I will definitely be adding this serum to my daily and nighttime routines as a permanent fixture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kombucha! Okay, so the Phormula 3-9 Serum is another one of my favorites. First, the smell reminds me of something from my childhood…only I cant remember what. All I know is that I enjoy having it on my face. I was impressed to find out that the Kombucha mushroom was one of the ingredients in it. My mother used to use it years ago and drank it in tea form after hearing about all its great health benefits! So naturally, I was so happy to find this in a serum. I definitely recommend this to anyone!

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.
