The miracle peptide Argireline in this cream, is referred by some anti-aging experts as ‘nature’s Botox’ or facelift in the bottle. Once this is applied, Argireline freezes the facial muscles and make the lines and wrinkles smoother. However, user reviews reveal that the “Instantly Ageless” vials are quite small, like most other miracle Botox creams products sold out there and they get used up fast and after application don’t last much longer. This actually makes the product expansive. Overall, it’s more of a quick fix rather than a long term solution. Besides, there are also some user reviews that claim the product doesn’t work at all. We recommend LifeCell over this.
An impressive variety in their product lineup but yet, the ingredients are nothing new or groundbreaking. There are other products in the market having same ingredients and that raises questions on the high price of Rodan and Fields products. Some users don't like the idea of going through a consultant to buy their products, many don't like the expansive cost and some people show skin reaction because of allergy to certain ingredients. Overall, user reviews are a mixed bag!
The premise behind Rodan and Fields Unblemish is basically the same as that behind Proactiv – a three-step process designed to clean, exfoliate, and protect the skin as a way to fight acne. Made popular primarily because of its NATURAL exotic ingredients like fish collagen, rosemary extract, and witch hazel water, there is little doubt that for Kathy and Katie the Rodan + Fields products lines have been hugely successful therefore the quantity of repeat customers they can count on seems to suggest that many people get good results too, but it's unlikely that this is a product line that is an affordable option for most people because of the high pricing. User reviews for Unblemish seem to rate it below its cousin, Proactiv. In short, as far as acne treatments go, Unblemish is not a bad choice and could work well for individuals in need of acne assistance but doesn't provide a great value for money. We recommend Exposed Acne skincare over Unblemish.
A promising product with the richness of skin nourishing serum and skin lightening agents, ‘Clinique Even Better dark spot corrector’ is a product with dual benefits! This serum comes packed with antioxidants and dark spot reducing ingredients, to provide you a complete package for gaining revived flawless skin. The company claims to provide results which are equivalent to any prescribed skin lightening drug. Customer reviews reveal that it has all the good qualities of a serum, and improves overall complexion, but is not meant to treat stubborn skin darkening caused by likes of Melasma or Chloasma. The official website does not provide clinical data or information about the mode of action of its active ingredients, so we cannot say much about its efficiency. With all that said, we find it overpriced too! So, we recommend you to find a better skin lightening product, especially if you have a severe hyperpigmentation problem. We recommend Illuminatural 6i over this.
Hydroquinone is an effective remedy for people battling with skin darkening and stubborn spots of any kind. Available in several brand names like Zo Melamin, Melalite forte, it contains hydroquinone as the primary ingredient for bleaching your skin and complexion correcting. It is clinically proven to lighten areas of darkened skin such as freckles, age spots, melasma (sun damage), or chloasma (darkened skin caused by hormonal changes). Though, it is proven for its efficiency, "Hydroquinone" still remains a controversial chemical when it comes to scientific research. It is still not clear what side effects it may cause with long term usage. As a topical treatment for lightening your skin, it is not recommended to be used by people with sensitive skin because it is bound to cause some irritation. Many safer alternatives are available in the market, which are gentle on skin, yet equally successful for facial skin lightening. We recommend Illuminatural 6i and SkinBright over Hydroquinone 4% creams like Zo melamin, Melalite forte etc.
While Derm Exclusive claims that their products are clinically proven, there are no studies referenced on their website. Based on the company’s description, user can expect to see immediate results with Fill & Freeze, while the complementary products will provide noticeable results within 14 days, and “dramatic results” within 4-6 weeks. Since it contains one powerful ingredient Argireline, most users should be able to see quick results, but with repeated applications, this product is NOT much of a long term collagen and skin builder. We recommend LifeCell over Fill and Freeze anti aging regimen. LifeCell also has Argireline as well as other powerful collagen building compounds and peptides like DMAE etc.
Tretinoin (Retin-A)_ Creams and their particular anti-aging results are promising. With its proven history and long record of advantages, Tretinoin is a product which continues to control the market of skincare. If trying Tretinoin for the very first time, check with your physician or dermatologist to be sure it’s correct for you. However, most user reviews reveal it offers short-term anti-aging results, although more powerful than typical RETINOL products like Paula's Choice Retinol Serum. Users also don't like the fact that it comes with side effects like dry skin, skin itching and flaking and photosensitive skin, and hence you need to use sunscreen during the day to avoid this effect. There are some innovative skincare products like LifeCell that’ll provide you with the same or better results with no unwanted effects related to Tretinoin Creams. We recommend LifeCell that contains "Matrixyl 3000", that mimics the effects of Retinol and Tretinoin and also works as a great affordable alternative to Botox. We also recommend Instant Wrinkle Reducer.
Murad Resurgence is a new line of products specifically designed to cater to the skin needs of women battling with hormonal imbalances. Murad is known to be a doctor created brand in the skincare industry. The ‘Resurgence’ line promises to provide unique anti ageing skin care solutions. However, we find that information about the ingredients, their mode of action is rather limited. The company seems to be using their ‘brand name’ to capture customers for this new line of products. Murad fails to explain how the Resurgence line is different from its other products. Some customers have reported auto shipping of orders as an abuse. User reviews are very mixed. We advise you to trust products which provide complete information about the ingredients and have been clinically tested too! We recommend Kollagen Intensiv and Genf20 Plus to treat hormonal skin aging.
