Summary of Meaningful Beauty
If you use skin care or watch TV you have probably come across this product. Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford has hundreds of thousands of users due to its very large television infomercial campaign.
Here is the basic premise. Cindy Crawford has this “anti aging secret,” which she got from visiting this famous model doctor in France. He has found this rare melon, located only in the south of France. Together Cindy and this doctor want to share these exclusive, expensive ingredients for you at a discounted rate, so that it can reach millions of users with ordinary budgets. While the notion that this act is one of generosity, as consumers we realize that both Cindy and the Doctor are directly tied to the companies sales. The more the company sells of this “secret” the more everyone profits, Cindy included. Read more
Summary of Principal Secret Reclaim
Another of the ex- celebrity skin care line, we found this product a bit more attractive than so many of the others. Many of these infomercial type anti aging products use moisturizers and fruits from exotic locations, but they do not contain any clinically proven, science based active ingredients. That is what makes Principal Secret Reclaim different, they actually use proven ingredients.
While not the top of the line active ingredients, Principal Secret does use peptides, which are widely considered the fastest and most effective way to treat and remove wrinkles. These peptides are designed to stimulate collage and elastin product, keeping skin firm, toned and wrinkle free. Read more
Summary of Olay Pro X
For those of you who stick to the local drug store or beauty supply store for their skin care regimen, the Olay Pro X line is probably not new to you. It is one of Olay’s recent attempt to corner the anti aging market. They offer two different anti aging product lines, the Pro X line being one of them.
While we have never quite understood what the difference is between the two product lines, other than a way to offer multiple products for similar skin conditions. This is, in fact, a common practice for skin care companies of this size. Since budget is of no concern, they tend to try as many angles as possible to recruit consumers to use their products. We were interested to see how Olay Pro X would really compare. Read more
Summary of Creme de la Mer
This little container may not look like much from the outside, but the Creme de la Mer moisturizing cream is priced like one of the industries most luxurious treats. Anyone that consistently reads our posts knows that we don’t put much emphasis on price alone, but according to online reviews we could see that the reputation seemed, at least initially, to match the price tag.
As industry experts, we understand that no matter what the brand, product or price tag, it ultimately comes down to what active ingredients the product contains, and whether or not those ingredients work for you. That is what concerned us a bit about Creme de la Mer, it looked to us, at first, as though this product was basically a very well formulated moisturizer. Nothing ground breaking, nothing even scientific just a basic moisturizer, but one that is really good at keeping skin soft and moist.
Summary of Strivectin SD Wrinkle Cream
Strivectin SD is a well known brand within the anti aging marketplace. It has been present in department stores for years and as such is well recognized by the pre-internet consumer base. What most people do not know about Strivectin SD was that it was originally developed as a solution for stretch marks. Fortunately for them, it also proved to help develop collagen and elastin, which allowed them to change gears and use this cream as a wrinkle cream for consumers, as the demand for anti aging product sky rocketed a few years ago.
As is the case with so many of the reputable skin care companies out there, Stivectin SD uses a cellular regeneration approach to removing wrinkles. Read more
Summary of Perricone MD Cold Plasma
Consumers love products that are recommended by or created by doctors. Perricone MD Cold Plasma has been a case study in proving that point. Designed as a sort of all in one anti aging product, Dr. Perricone may have come up with one of the more scientific sounding wrinkle creams on the market. Many times, however, the cool sounding name and doctor in a lab coat on the website is as close to results as you come.
From the reviews and personal testimonials we uncovered that in reality there are mixed opinions about this wrinkle cream. Some of the users love Perricone MD Cold Plasma and others feel as though it is just another frustration in the trial and error of finding a wrinkle cream that works. Truth is, no matter how good a cream or serum is, there will always be some people that do not respond well to the active ingredients, its not that the cream is a rip off, but that skin care is a far more personal process than a celebrity endorsement or doctor recommendation.

Summary of La Prairie Cellular Charge
Very few of our readers have hands on experience with La Prairie Cellular Charge. Priced at roughly $500 per bottle, that comes as no surprise. What may surprise you, however, is the fact that most consumers would consider purchasing a wrinkle cream at this price, IF they were assured that the product would work.
While there are many fabulous wrinkle creams on the market, there is no guarantee that any of them are going to work on your skin. Skin care is a very personal thing, what works on your best friend may not work on you. All you can do is use a wrinkle cream that has proven to work well on the majority of its users. At $500 / bottle, that is a fairly significant investment each month to continue using La Prairie Cellular Charge. Read more
Summary Skinlastin Wrinkle Cream
You may have heard of Dermagevity’s product line before. It consists of Skinlastin wrinkle cream as well as Eyelastin eye cream. It is always interesting when a company offers you an “all in one” anti aging treatment, and then also sell other anti aging treatments too. Why would there be a need for other anti aging treatments if the one product is truly all in one.
Now we know we are being difficult on Skinlastin Wrinkle Cream right now, but it is inconsistencies like this that give the anti aging skin care industry a bad name. Consumers are already skeptical about buying wrinkle creams because there are so many impostors out there. That fact is multiplied when you have companies that offer these scam all in one products. Read more
Summary of Prevera Wrinkle Cream
While this skin care brand is not well known to the public, Prevera Wrinkle Cream has carved out a decent little niche within the industry by claiming to provide peptide based wrinkle creams at drug store brand prices. Industry experts assure us that the only way to provide a real peptide based product at this price point would be to sacrifice the concentration.
The makers of Prevera Wrinkle Cream, however, state that this is not the case and that users can expect to have the same results as the leading wrinkle creams. If that is the case than consumers may have found an ideal way to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin at a fraction of the cost of the best wrinkle creams. The problem is that we have all heard this claim before, and as of yet, no one has been successful in creating a product that can compare. Read more
Summary of HTY Gold Day Gold
For those of you who are familiar with HTY Gold Day Gold, know that it is the day time treatment for the face manufactured by HTY Gold. While not the original or even the best selling product of the HTY Gold product range, it was the best suited for our readers.
HTY Gold made some headlines within the industry with their body treatment a few years back, it was a different way of looking at anti aging. By treating the skin as one organ, HTY Gold devised a way for its users to heal and benefit multiple aspects of the skin and not just the face. But alas, our readers tend to be focused on facial wrinkle creams or serums for areas of their skin that they cannot hide with clothes. HTY Gold Day Gold is the facial treatment recommended for those types of users. We were excited to check it out. Read more
Summary of Faitox 25 Wrinkle Serum
Faitox 25 is a brand that very few of our readers have heard of . While searching the internet can reveal quite a bit of testimonials and reviews, it seems that this product has not reached the brand recognition level. It is to be expected, as we are unable to find much about the company history before the past two years.
We are not sure if perhaps, this is just a new company that has come on the scene along with the anti aging skin care boom. Many companies have popped up out of no where, making separating the best wrinkle creams and the impostors a difficult task. Read more
Summary of Derm Exclusive Wrinkle Treatment
You may have seen this recent addition to the anti aging marketplace. Beach Body, the makers of P90X and countless other workout videos, has entered into the anti aging skin care game with Derm Exclusive. In typical beach body fashion, they have flooded the television airwaves with infomercials. Derm Exclusive chose to feature a celebrity endorsement as well as tout the “Beverly Hills” doctor who created the formula.
If you read our blog here, you know that we consider the celebrity endorsement the lowest form of marketing, and the cliche doctor from a wealthy town, where celebrities are known to live gave us a bad initial impression of Derm Exclusive. In fact, we considered not including it here on our blog. Read more
Summary of SkinCell Vial 29 A
SkinCell Vial 29 comes in what looks like an old school eye dropper. Perhaps it is intended to provide you with the feeling of using something medical. Keep in mind skin care products are considered cosmetics, and therefore are not even regulated by the FDA. The eye dropper is a marketing ploy, as is the SkinCell Vial 29 name. Needless to say, these tactics always rub us the wrong way. While it really has absolutely no bearing on the quality of the product and whether or not it works, we have always felt that the quality of the product should speak for itself without the gimmicks.
Unfortunately, the more we examined SkinCell Vial 29 A, the more concerned AND interested we became. Read more
Summary of Dermitage Anti Aging System
Dermitage is a fairly well recognized brand name within the anti aging marketplace. Sure, there are so many products out there that basically sound the same as Dermitage. The Dermitage Anti Aging System, however seems to get a bit more notoriety than most brands.
Perhaps that is due to the amount of reviews that can be found online. Overall the reviews are mixed, which is somewhat normal for a skincare company. Some people like a product and others do not, that is just how it goes. Unfortunately, when users turn around and post their comments as they do, a brand can get an unfair bit of press. Read more
Summary of Envision Beauty
Envision Beauty is a 5 in 1 facial moisturizer which is said to be a light moisturizer, as well as an anti aging serum, an eye cream, a professional make-up base and finally a night cream all wrapped up into one. Naturally we are always skeptical of products that use this approach to skincare, but we were willing to keep an open mind.
Envision Beauty is not a well known brand, but there are a fair amount of searches for this product on the internet each month. While the reviews are mixed on this product, their sales volume seems to be maintaining, which is generally a good sign. Read more
Summary of Olay Regenerist
Unless you have been living on the moon for the past 25 years, you are aware of the Olay product line. Recently, Olay Regenerist product line has hit the anti aging market place and had some success. Its attractive price points and easy access to consumers have made a popular addition to the Olay product range.
Olay Regenerist has been able to find success at this price point, and consumers seem blind to the fact that it may take twice as many purchases to get results, however they are attracted to the fact each purchase costs them less. As long as their patience for results holds firms, this is a way to spend a bit less each month and hopefully get the same results long term, albeit a bit longer term than the leading brands.
Murad Resurgence Review
Murad Resurgence has been on the market for quite some time and Dr. Murad is well respected within the industry. You have probably seen the TV infomercial on Sunday mornings. Joan Lunden and the girls chatting about how happy they are with the results of Resurgence.
Murad Resurgence is a 3 step system. It is a basic three step approach. Essentially, there is a cleanser (step one) the treatment cream (step two) and finally a moisturizer to finish (step three). We say this is a basic approach, because in most cases that is all that is needed. Get fresh, clean, exfoliated skin. Apply a cream that helps with the signs of aging and finish with deep moisture cream. Nowadays, some companies get you so involved with this specific treatment or that specific serum, it can be overwhelming. Read more
