Proactiv Plus is an advanced acne-treatment system with nanotechnology and added medicine, built-in hydration and a new, smart way to treat acne. It is an all-new 3-Step System — completely reformulated from the ground up. However, this new technology and acne system isn't garnering as much praise as the Proactive original product line. User reviews on the Proactiv Plus system are interestingly mixed. On sites such as Amazon.com, there were more negative reviews than positive, with the biggest issues citing redness, severe dryness, itching, and complete ineffectiveness, along with price. Proactiv Plus reviews on sites such as Acne.org are not as spilt, with negative comments far outnumbering positive reviews by as much as 3 to 1. Consumers feel overcharged. There were also many reported problems in dealing with the customer service of the Proactiv company itself. We recommend Exposed SkinCare Acne system over Proactiv Plus.
Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum is marketed as a correcting treatment, which means that’s intended for daily use as part of a regular skin care routine. This face serum is designed to restore the skin’s own natural radiance, fade sun spots, and restore dry, blotchy skin through hydration and application of antioxidants. Viniferine, grapewine extract, used as main complexion correcting ingredient in this is a potent anti-inflammatory as well as antiseptic agent. However, overall the formulation is pretty average and it doesn't work for everyone. Many users also report this item to be expansive. We recommend Illuminatural 6i 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!
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.
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.
The NuFace Trinity is a user friendly tool that tones up your sagging skin. It comes with different attachments. It is inter-convertible into a facial toner as well as a wrinkle reducer, depending upon which attachment you may use. The company claims it to be an alternative to Botox! The facial toner uses "micro current" to rejuvenate your facial muscles and the wrinkle reducer uses "LED light therapy" to heal your skin. Both these technologies are used by aestheticians at salons and spas, but still we find dermatologists not convinced of its efficacy. There is anecdotal proof that the product works, but it lags behind in providing strong scientific proof. Some people are still reluctant to use it as they believe that only professionals can use the device well! The product has to be used repeatedly to see lasting changes. Side effects like headaches, muscle twitching etc have also been reported. As an alternative to Botox, we recommend using LifeCell cream, over this product which guarantees instant as well as long term results!
Overall, Nerium is among the very fascinating anti aging brands we’ve seen. They’ve taken one of the very poisonous plants on earth and turned it into an anti aging cream. Whilst there’s little in the way of clinical studies or alternative scientific proof, there definitely is some value to the Nerium merchandise, just like the Bee venom or Bees wax creams. However, despite the fact that the products will hydrate and make skin feel smoother and gentler, so will endless other healthy skin products that don’t have Nerium AD’s expansive price or unsupported case. We recommend LifeCell and Instant Wrinkle Reducer over this.
As the name clearly explains, the ‘Ultra lifting and Filling serum’ produced by the company ‘Meaningful Beauty’ is a solution for sagging skin. This serum has been formulated to provide your skin with the ‘lift’ that you desire. It is packed with antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and other natural ingredients. It moisturizes and acts slowly to revive your skin, being a temporary solution for reducing visible fine lines and wrinkles. It is just another product, among many other age defying solutions. The product fails to justify the price it demands, since it has nothing very unique or groundbreaking in it as compared to the myriads of lifting creams available in the market! You can find better solutions like Instant wrinkle reducer, a non invasive line fillers having argireline with "instant" and promising results.
