I was asked to do a product review on this Anti wrinkle Serum Vitamin C Peptide EGF Argireline Matrixyl Hyaluronic MSM DMAE.
I have to say for the first time in my blogging career I am stumped. Usually, I either love a product or I don’t. It’s pretty simple, until today. I have mixed feelings about this product and I am going to thoroughly explain why in my review.
As we all know there are a ton of products out on the market today. But which ones really work and are worth the money? This product claims to be an award winning anti wrinkle serum that battles the best fight against aging! This product sells RadiantlyAgeless.com for $75! This product also sells at the Sears Cosmetic Counter for 79.99! So they must be on to something right?
After reviewing the ingredients in this product I was definitely intrigued. This product does have a vast array of wonderful ingredients that I would and do normally use; 75 different antioxidants, co-enzymes, peptides, and proteins just to name a few.
Here’s just a few of the most active ingredients in this wonderful little bottle;
Ingredients: Argireline, Matrixyl 3000, Hyaluronic Acid, Q10, Vitamin A B C, Retinol Atralin, Pentavitin, Phloretin, Growth Factors, Resveratrol, Oleracea Ester, Spin Trap, Syn Coll, Botox Syn-ake, Pepha Tight.
This product won a beauty award in 2014, and was ranked #14 on a list of anti-aging products such as Chanel Sublimage which sells for $390.00, Clinique which sells for $154.00, Creme De La Mer which sells for $295.00, Lancome which sells for $321.00, and Sampar which sells for $90.00.
This review was actually pretty simple and easy to do information wise. Everything is right on the website and you really don’t need to search for information about the product. I don’t like to do negative reviews. But at the same time, I’m not going to steer you-my followers, wrong. So I’m going to call this one “neutral”. Because of the fact that I didn’t hate it and It worked OK…. BUT, “Just OK”…
Here are the Pro’s and Con’s for me on this product:
I used the product for 8 days straight, am/pm. With all of the wonderful ingredients in this product and because of the rave reviews it had once achieved, I thought for sure this one would hit a home run with me. So needless to say, I was a little disappointed when it didn’t. I did not notice much of a difference in my skin tone and texture after using this product. The product did not scream $90.00 to $400.00 worthy to me. For that price I would have expected miracles.
I did find this product on eBay and the seller has 99.8% Positive feedback. They sell this product for only $15.00 with free shipping due to the original boxes being damaged in shipment but labels are the same. I also noticed that this product is labeled a serum, however in the bottle it comes more of a cream form? Which leads me to the question, was the formula changed? Is this the same exact legit formula and product that won the award in 2014?
I guess for me this is a toss up. Because of the listed ingredients and all the hype this product has achieved. Let me touch on the ingredients a little more and explain this statement:
Matrixyl 3000: Is one of the most powerful anti-aging peptides out there on the market to date. It produces and encourages collagen growth and cellular repair to help keep skin plump and youthful.
Vitamin C-L Ascorbic Acid: Helps to protect your skin from UVA & UVB damage. It also stimulates collagen production and improve skins tone and texture. It has also been known to reduce pigmentation issues.
Hyaluronic Acid: Which is found in the extracellular matrix of human tissue, helps to form a barrier between the toxins and pollutants in the air protecting skin from free radicals. It’s micro ability to penetrate deep into the dermis helps to boost elasticity and hydration of the skin.
Snap-8 is an octa-peptide meaning is made of 8 amino acids which are linked together to create one single mega peptide. Similar to Argireline but new and improved and up to 30% more effective. Think of Snap-8 as a milder form of Botox. In a nut shell it is a muscle contraction inhibitor which is said to reduce the depth of wrinkles caused by muscle contraction and facial expression.
Myoxinol is a compound created with oligopeptides obtained from the seeds of hibiscus esculentus and Orka seeds. Orka seeds are very powerful themselves since they are high in unsaturated fats, proteins and amino acids.
Syn-Ake, also knows as Dipeptide D. Which is a combination of neuropeptides with a name that has some bite to it. Don’t be alarmed by this, but the Syn-Ake peptide mimics the venom in the viper snake which is known to cause muscle paralysis by inhibiting neuro transmitters from entering the muscle receptor site. I say don’t be alarmed by this because the word mimic is used very loosely when describing this peptide. Syn-Ake peptide does not actually paralyze the muscle. It only offers compounds which relax the muscle. It fights against expression lines which helps to prevent and eliminate wrinkles. It is very safe and has been used for many years.
DMAE: I rave about this product all of the time is a lot of my reviews! Numerous studies have shown that topical application of DMAE increases the appearance of firmness, tone and lift to the skin. Remember what I say about topical applications? Your skin will absorb up to 65% of what ever you put on it. DMAE improves the appearance of skin elasticity and luminosity, helping to decrease the look of lines and wrinkles while brightening skin and evening out imperfections.It really is that amazing.
Many scientists and researchers in the field of dermatology are studying DMAE now because of all the hype this product has achieved. Their exciting findings validate that DMAE has a unique, important role as a safe and effective strategy to help delay or reverse the appearance of aging. It has also recently been found that taking DMAE orally while using it topically provides a new profound result which keeps working internally even after you stop taking the product. It really is the fountain of youth.
Now that I have touched on all the main ingredients in this eye serum, wouldn’t you expect a miracle result? Maybe I am just being to harsh on my review being in the beauty industry and working with amazing products daily.
My end result is this:
Is it a good product? Yes, because of the top notch ingredients. BUT for the right price. I would not spend more than $20.00 on this bottle bottom line. The mark up charged by the retail stores is out of this stratosphere. (Way too much money) In my opinion.
