Nerium Review: What’s the Hype?

As interest towards more natural beauty products increases, it seems as if there’s a new miraculous beauty plant every day. They’re becoming so common, it’s easy to find yourself thinking, “Another day, another plant extract hyped for its anti-aging properties.” Do you feel us? 

Now, finding exotic plant extracts in skin care products is nothing new. It’s no secret that plants have been utilized for their medicinal properties since the beginnings of recorded time. However, it can become overwhelming to know which ones work and which are scams with their growing popularity. 

That’s what we’re here for. Today, we’re here to share everything you need to know about Nerium Oleander. 

Never heard of it? Well, you’re not alone. Despite it being an extremely common plant, many people don’t know it by name and especially don’t think about it as a beauty product. 

We should warn you – Nerium Oleander is an extremely controversial product in the skin care industry. What’s different about it, you might ask? Oh… well… it happens to be highly toxic. Yes, you read that correctly. And yes, it’s being used in anti-aging skin care products

Is your curiosity peaked yet? 

Ours was. Could there really be skin care benefits to be found in such a deadly plant? Read on and we’ll take a closer look together. 

Product Overview

nerium ad

The Nerium Oleander, most often simply referred to as Oleander, is an evergreen shrub or small tree that thrives in many subtropical and tropical regions of the world. You’ve no doubt seen its lovely flowering blooms at one time or another, whether you’ve realized it or not.

While beautiful to look upon, the toxic designation of the plant comes from ingestion. The cardiac glycosides of the Oleander affect the gastrointestinal system, the heart, and the central nervous system. When consumed in large amounts, the toxins can cause drowsiness, tremors, shaking of the muscles, seizures, collapse, coma, and ultimately death.

Now you may be thinking, “That’s all fine and good, but I wasn’t planning on eating it.” You were planning on smoothing it onto your skin. It should be safe to use the plant extract as long as you don’t consume it, right? 

The truth is, it might not be the case. 

Remember, your skin is your largest organ. Anything you come in contact with can make its way into your bloodstream. Lotions, creams, and serums are no exception. So, you will be ingesting the plant, just in a slightly smaller dose and through a less direct method. 

Additionally, some of the toxins present in Oleander sap can cause skin irritations, eye inflammation, and severe allergic reactions characterized by dermatitis. That means that, not only is the plant not safe to consume, but it’s also not even safe for most people to touch! 

So how in the world can it be safely used in skin care, you ask? That’s where science comes in.

As with so many discoveries, this possible skin care breakthrough came about as a result of research done on a completely different and far-removed topic: cancer. Researchers at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center were hopeful that the extracts from the Nerium Oleander shrub could slow certain cell growth, or kill certain cells altogether. While tests against cancer cells were inconclusive, some researchers thought that there might be some practical applications for other causes, such as skin care.

With that idea, and the promise of big returns on an exotic new product, some skin care manufacturers jumped into action. Nerium Biotechnology, Inc. is by far the biggest company heralding the new (and very pricey) anti-aging miracle of Oleander. Their line of NeriumAD products have flooded the market.

But can the toxic elements in Nerium Oleander really be harnessed for good in use on the skin? Despite the many trials and claims, we are still not convinced it’s safe. 

NeriumAD product and claims

woman and skin

Because we were so skeptical of the safety and effectiveness of the primary ingredient of these products, we turned to the company’s website for more information. 

According to the NeriumAD website, Nerium’s skincare products are rooted in nature, science, and high-impact ingredients. Our flagship product, NeriumAD Age-Defying Treatment, contains the most effective ingredients available, including our exclusive, patented NAE-8 extract, which has powerful antioxidant properties that help reduce the appearance of many signs of aging. This night cream has higher concentrations of the NAE-8 extract and our proprietary protein blend than any product in the NeriumAD line. These high-impact ingredients help the skin appear youthful and tight. Over one million people have enjoyed the benefits of NeriumAD; it is time for you to experience the Nerium Difference.

The NeriumAD product line is one-of-a-kind, as we are the only company to harness the antioxidant power of the NAE-8 extract, which is derived from the Nerium oleander and aloe vera plants, for high-performance skincare products. Third-party clinical trials show that NeriumAD Age-Defying Treatment provides an average of 30% reduction in the appearance of signs of aging. Over time, NeriumAD dramatically reduces the appearance of:

  • Fine Lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Discoloration
  • Uneven face texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Aging or loose skin

On the website, they are also advertising a “24 hour Nerium Experience”:

If you want to enhance your results, we have created the ultimate night and day Nerium Experience. With the upcoming addition of NeriumAD Age-Defying Day Cream, your skin can bask in the breakthrough science of NeriumAD 24 hours a day! The NeriumAD day cream includes our exclusive NAE-8 extract, as well as a tripeptide blend, vitamin C complex, and green tea extract, which addresses your signs of aging during the day. It also includes a blend of four highly functioning moisturizers, including hyaluronic acid, to keep skin moisturized and radiant. Our product line works in tandem to nourish your skin and turn back the clock. With this dynamic duo, you will see that the Nerium difference is truly night and day.

Try the 24-hour Nerium Experience and look ten years younger, just like the NeriumAD customers in our Results Gallery.

Application and regimen recommendations

The hardest part of most skin care regimens is getting in the habit. After that, it comes down to finding the routine that works best with your schedule. One of the benefits of this product is that it’s extremely straightforward. 

All you have to do is apply it twice a day after watching your face. Anyone can do that! 

According to the NeriumAD website, the specific process looks like this:

After cleansing your face thoroughly, immediately apply a thin layer of product to face and neck. We recommend using 4-5 pumps. Our research has shown that more is not always better. Apply to slightly damp skin for optimal absorption. The product will feel similar to a masque, so it is normal for your skin to feel a bit tighter than it would with a typical face cream. Rinse your face the morning following usage, and then apply moisturizer. If your skin is very dry, we recommend using a moisturizer more than once a day. It can even be used in conjunction with NeriumAD at night.

NeriumAD can also be used on other areas of the skin such as neck, décolletage, arms, hands, elbows, and knees. If any skin irritation occurs, we recommend reducing the amount of pumps used. The soft tissue area around the eyes is always a very sensitive region, so we do not recommend using NeriumAD on the soft tissue area around your eye.

So what does this mean for you?

So, it’s an easy process with popular products that contain a potentially toxic primary ingredient. How do you decide if it’s worth it to try?

Again, we turned to the source for the full scoop. On the NeriumAD website, there is a lengthy bit of information on “Reactions” and “Analyzing Issues” that might occur with their product. We’ve copied it here for you to create your own opinion first. Then, we’ll share our thoughts.  

Skin is an amazing organ and does its best to adjust to all types of circumstances in life, including changes without irritation. As such, for every cosmetic product introduced to the market, there is a subset of the population that may experience minor irritation (redness, itching, breakouts, etc.) with one or more of the product ingredients. This may be a temporary issue that will resolve itself once your skin acclimates to the product; however, if the irritation persists, discontinue use of any new product and seek medical advice.


NeriumAD is designed to work with all skin types, but it is impossible to identify all possible interactions between a cosmetic product like NeriumAD and various skin types. You may already be aware of sensitivities your skin has to certain cosmetic ingredients, so please read the label carefully to ensure none of the high-quality ingredients used in NeriumAD are among those to which your skin is sensitive.

Multiple Products

If you are currently taking or using any other drugs or cosmetics in conjunction with NeriumAD, they may be increasing your skin’s sensitivity to or reacting with NeriumAD. You may want to test a small area with both products to see if there is a reaction to the combination.


Assess what condition your skin was in prior to using NeriumAD. If your skin was already dry or irritated, it is important that you are using a moisturizer 1-2 times a day in conjunction with NeriumAD. We also do not recommend using NeriumAD on skin with medical conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, or any other dermatologist-treated conditions.

New Product Phase-In

Every time a new product is introduced to the skin, you may encounter a reaction. Your skin must become accustomed to a product and how it interacts with your skin. Please give your skin time to adjust to NeriumAD if you initially have any signs of irritation. If you have mild irritation we recommend allowing 2-3 weeks for your skin to acclimate. If you have a severe reaction we recommend you stop the use of the product and seek medical advice.

Every review you find on the official website is raving. People seem to absolutely love these products and experience incredible results. 

However, reviews found on sites other than the NeriumAD web page are almost unanimously negative. And more in-depth reviews found are downright scathing. In fact, on one doctor’s blog, she writes,

It is possible that the makers of NeriumAD have found some unique way to neutralize the cardiotoxic oleandrin, folinerin, digitoxigenin, and oleandringen and still retain some other “anti-aging” benefit of an extract. Without published studies it is not possible to know. Believing the company hype about safety is a massive leap of faith considering they dismiss the cardiotoxicty as “negative stories.”

Other consumer reviews complain of not only the consistency of the product, but the rash and sensitivity it caused with only a few uses. One such consumer claims to have stuck with the product for over two weeks, when the rash did begin to clear… however, after the rash faded, she noted absolutely no change in her pores, skin texture, evenness, or wrinkles. The only people we found who seemed to be pleased with NeriumAD were either those on the NeriumAD website, or those found to be connected as a consultant/individual representative for selling the product.


As with any product, there are positives and negatives. For this system, we see the following:


  • 30 day money back guarantee
  • Preferred Customer Program (with multiple orders on NeriumAD website)


  • Very pricey, at the high-end of the skincare product spectrum
  • No clinical trials to show/prove any effectiveness
  • Linked with troubling and dangerous side-effects
  • All parts of the Nerium Oleander plant are known to be toxic

We may not be scientists here, but then again, it doesn’t take a scientist to know that NeriumAD, or any product utilizing the Nerium Oleander plant, is risky. Not just on your wallet, but on your skin. Best case scenario, there is no documented scientific data showing NeriumAD to produce any significant results on skin problems or signs of aging skin. Worst case scenario, you could end up with a highly dangerous reaction to the toxins ever-present in the plant extract.

Seems like your best bet would be to steer clear of this product and any choosing to experiment with such an uncertain key ingredient.

Full Kremotex Review: Our Favorite Anti-Wrinkle Cream

If you’re anything like us, the sight of fine lines on your face made you start scouring the internet for the best possible solution to keep them at bay. However, you most likely found the number of products claiming to be the ultimate anti-wrinkle treatment to be slightly overwhelming (we did).

Lucky for you, we’ve done all of the work testing and researching the best products on the market. In all of our searching, one product stood out among the rest both treating and preventing wrinkles as well as addressing other signs of aging, like dry skin or age spots.

Kremotex is an all-in-one face cream that smooths wrinkles, manages tone, and strengthens skin. This anti-aging treatment completely lives up to the hype. Keep reading for our full Kremotex review.

What does it do?

Kremotex protects your face from the many elements that change your appearance and the feel of your skin as life goes on. Specifically, it defends your skin from humidity, pollution, the sun, age deterioration, and general moisture loss. These circumstances are inevitable in most of our lives, but the effects on your appearance don’t have to be.

pollution harmful to the skin

Specifically, Kremotex works from deep inside your skin to reduce discoloration, redness, age spots, visible pores, crow’s feet, and other wrinkles covering your face and neck. It improves your skin texture, tone, and color which, collectively, improves the overall appearance of your face.

Think of Kremotex as a cheaper, safer alternative to Botox. It doesn’t hurt as badly and has none of the side effects. Applying a cream instead of undergoing serious medical procedures is always preferable, especially when the results are the same.

What’s in it?

Kremotex cream is a combination of natural ingredients that are all effective skin products on their own, but then become an absolute powerhouse when they work together. Other decent anti-aging skincare products may have one or two of these tools, but none pack the punch of Kremotex.

Instead of focusing on covering surface problems, Kremotex begins to heal your skin from the inside out. Collagen, stem cells, and peptides work together to revive your skin cells and rebuild your skin, starting deep within your DNA.

There are no preservatives, coloring, or artificial fillers in Kremotex cream. Most of the ingredients naturally occur in your body, but that break down over time and sometimes need supplementation. The rest are natural ingredients that nourish your skin to help maintain health and vitality.

The five major ingredient categories of Kremtox are collagen, stem cells, peptides, moisturizers, and vitamins. Below, we describe the benefits of each and the specific ingredients used.

skin benefits of ingredients


Collagen is your primary skin protein that breaks down over time as a result of environmental factors, such as pollution or sunlight, and age. Repairing and regrowing collagen is the principal focus of Kremotex cream.

Specifically, Kremotex stimulates and nourishes collagen growth to support your skin’s health and help it to maintain its firm, plump, and smooth appearance.

Stem Cells

Stem cells, like collagen, are prevalent throughout your body, but break down over time. Deteriorating stem cells are why body functions slow as we age and why our skin begins to look less healthy. Adding stem cells to your system can bring new life to your skin and face.

Kremotex includes three different stem cell extracts, all derived from plants. These are:

  • Malus Domestica: a fruit stem cell extract found in a rare variety of Swiss apple. It has been scientifically shown to aid in regenerating healthy skin.
  • Iris Padilla Leaf: a flower stem cell that encourages skin cells to regenerate more quickly. It also helps your body keep up with all of the necessary repairs that result from daily skin damage and aging.
  • Nymphaea Caerulea Leaf: a water lily stem cell filled with antioxidants. This helps your body resist breakdowns that result from both internal and external environmental factors.


Many wrinkles form as the result of repetitive contractions of the face muscles deep underneath the skin. These contractions cause muscles to bunch and form the peaks and crevices that show up on the surface of the face. The Kremotex peptides relax your face muscles and limit future muscle contractions from happening in the first place.

  • Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7: a proprietary peptide compound that focuses on resisting inflammation. Specifically, it targets the muscular inflammation that results from repetitive use of the facial muscles and causes wrinkles to appear.


skin care moisturizer

As skin ages, it becomes drier and less able to hold onto all of the moisture that it needs. Dry skin exacerbates aging effects and makes you look even older than you alright might. The moisturizers in Kremotex help to both increase moisture and encourage healthier skin.

  • Jojoba seed oil: increases moisture without leaving a greasy face behind. It not only moisturizes, but also resists breakouts, minimizes clogged pores, and helps prevent the natural breakdown of skin cells.
  • Shea butter: calms skin irritations while it conditions and moisturizes your face and neck.


In addition to all of the other ingredients, the Kremotex formula includes two vitamin supplements. These vitamins add antioxidants and other protections to your skin.

  • Vitamin C: an antioxidant and astringent. This vitamin targets sun damage, enhances skin tone, and promotes a more glowing complexion.
  • Vitamin B3: another antioxidant that protects your skin from damage. It also keeps skin appearing glowing and youthful.

Who should use it?

It might sound cliche, but Kremotex cream is an excellent choice for almost everyone. Where most products either protect skin from damage or help it heal, Kremotex does both. So, whether you’re already showing signs of aging or want to be proactive and prevent skin damage from becoming an issue in the future, Kremotex will work for you.

Additionally, Kremotex is safe and effective for people with sensitive skin. Where other anti-aging products can be harsh or irritating, this cream isn’t. The emphasis on all natural ingredients seems to play a helpful role in making this product beneficial for most skin types.

beauty and skin care

How does it work?

Any product that claims you’ll see quick improvements in your skin, particularly when it comes to signs of aging, should be approached with caution. Your skin is a muscle and, as such, needs time to regenerate and heal. Kremotex works with your skin from the inside out, so even though you might not see immediate results, they are happening under the surface.

The official Kremotex website encourages using the cream for three months before judging the results. In the first month, you’ll most likely feel your skin become more elastic and moisturized. The second month brings a slight decrease in the appearance of fine lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles as your natural collagen supply is boosted. In the third month – and beyond – your skin will be noticeably less wrinkled and more youthful all around. These benefits continue as Kremotex use goes on.

Most customer reviews show these results happening on an even shorter timeline. People have reported less-wrinkled skin in as little as one month. Results will vary between individuals, but, with regular use, most people do see impressive results using Kremotex.

Are there side effects?

There are no long-term side effects of using Kremotex. The ingredients are all natural and proven safe for use.

Some customers reported slight skin irritations or allergic reactions. However, most irritations went away as skin adjusted to the new product.

Is it worth it?

pretty asian woman

Yes! Kremotex exceeds customer expectations almost every time. People of all ages and levels of skin damage see results. This is one of the most effective and safe anti-wrinkle products available on the market today.

Most people see results very quickly. The official Kremotex website says that you can begin to see results in as little as four weeks, but do caution that it can take time. Customer reviews agree that results are positive, noticeable, and fast.

Where can you find it?

A one month supply of Kremotex cream costs $79.99. However, there are discounts when you purchase more at once. If you buy a three month supply, you’ll receive one free bottle, bringing the cost down to $59.90 per bottle. A five-month supply comes with two complimentary bottles, reducing the price even more to $49.99 each month.

A notable feature of Kremotex is lack of an auto-ship feature on the website. This often leads to spending money you didn’t mean to spend and product that you don’t need or want. Companies with auto ship options are often scams or offering poor quality products. The lack of this is another check in towards the credibility and quality of Kremotex.

You can buy Kremotex on Amazon, but the deals are better on the official website. Plus, there’s quality assurance and fantastic customer service.

Our Complete Stemuderm Review: A great anti-aging cream

The skincare world is overwhelmed with products claiming to combat wrinkles, fill in fine lines, and make your face appear younger and more vibrant. In fact, we’ve compiled a list of all of the best of them.

However, today we’re excited to share with you Stemuderm anti-wrinkle treatment cream. Keep reading for our full review of Stemuderm.

How does it work?

Stemuderm is a super concentrated serum that combines stem cells, peptides, and moisturizes to smooth skin and make it more radiant. Its power comes from attention to all signs of aging, unlike other skin care products focus on one aspect at a time.

The primary focus of Stemuderm is decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles – two telltale signs your skin is getting older. It does this by relaxing the contracted muscles under your skin to smooth out wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming. Stemuderm also includes ingredients to plump your skin which aids in hiding hard to treat fine lines.

Where other anti-wrinkle creams fail to focus is the skin’s hydration levels. Dry skin shows age spots and wrinkles more than healthy, moisturized skin. Stemuderm includes multiple moisturizing ingredients to keep your complexion smooth and glowing.

By treating skin from the inside out, Stemuderm encourages a healthier, tighter, and more youthful face.

Who makes it?

Stemuderm anti-wrinkle cream is manufactured in the USA by a company called Solvaderm. This company brings together dermatology professionals across specialties to create the most effective formulas possible. The variety of perspectives included guarantees that the ingredients are safe and optimized for maximum effectiveness.

What’s in it?

Particularly where skincare is concerned, Stemuderm has a short list of active ingredients. They fall primarily into three categories: peptides, stem cells, and moisturizers. Below we dive deeper into what’s working together in this anti-wrinkle cream.


Peptides limit muscle contractions beneath the skin. Contractions are the result of repetitive facial movements, such as speaking or smiling. This chronic use shows up as fine lines and wrinkles. Peptides in Stemuderm swoop in to relax your face muscles and consequently reduce the appearance of lines.

Stemuderm includes the following peptides:

  • Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 is a unique ingredient often referred to as “Botox in a Jar.” It decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and prevents new ones from forming. To get technical, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 is a polypeptide composed of amino acids. Amino acids encourage productions of essential nutrients and healthy skin functions.
  • Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benxylamide Diacetate, often shortened to SYN-AKE, is another peptide that relaxes facial muscles and reduces fine lines. This one mimics the function of snake venom and specifically targets crow’s feet and laugh lines – two aging signs that appear early and are often hard to make disappear.
  • Matrixyl 3000 is a mixture of peptides that counteracts signs of aging. This combo, in particular, has been shown to diminish wrinkles by 45% on its own with regular use. Combined with the other ingredients in the Stemuderm cream, Matrixyl 3000 becomes even more unstoppable at making your skin look younger.

Stem cells

skincare at its best by a happy woman

As your skin ages, it loses elasticity. Without the ability to bounce back into place, wrinkles become more apparent, and your skin seems to sag or look puffy. Stem cells in Stemuderm work to revive your skin’s natural elasticity and even out your skin tone.

  • Malus Domestica is a plant-based stem cell. It comes from a rare, Swiss apple and, as a result, provides antioxidants and anti-inflammatory boosts to your skin. Malus Domestica protects, repairs, and heals your skin while simultaneously diminishing imperfections. This combination leaves healthier, more even, more youthful skin in its wake.


Many anti-aging products on the market focus all of their efforts on wrinkle reduction. While this element is essential, it misses the fact that skin care requires a comprehensive approach. Adequate moisture is vital for keeping skin healthy and vibrant – two characteristics that also help skin appear younger!

The three primary moisturizers in Stemuderm are:

  • Hyaluronic Acid is one of the most effective, potent moisturizers around today. It occurs naturally in the skin but often requires supplementation as we age. A unique benefit of hyaluronic acid is its ability to plump skin. Plumping reduces the appearance of fine lines and creates the illusion of more even complexion. This is one of the key ingredients in adding to the overall youthfulness of your face.  
  • Apricot kernel oil is a natural compound that both nourishes and softens skin. It contains a variety of moisturizing elements including Vitamin E, linoleum acid, and Leicester acid. Think of apricot kernel oils as an additional toner working to prepare your face for the rest of the ingredients in the Stemuderm cream to work.
  • Squalane is a moisturizer extracted from olive oil. Its primary function is to lock in moisture and keep your skin hydrated. Specifically, it works by reducing the ability of your skin to lose moisture, therefore keeping it soft and looking great.

How do you use it?

Using Stemuderm cream is an effortless addition to your regular skincare routine. Every morning and evening, wash and tone your face like normal and then use your fingers to apply the cream to your face, neck, and décolleté. It’s recommended that you massage the cream into your skin using a circular motion, paying particular attention to problem areas like crow’s feet, sagging neck skin, or puffy areas underneath your eyes.

Because Stemuderm is extremely concentrated, the manufacturers recommend easing your way into use. Begin applying the cream every other day for the first week, then once daily for the second, and then begin using it twice daily during the third week of use if you’ve had no reactions or problems.

Are there side effects?

No serious side effects to Stemuderm anti-wrinkle cream exist. However, some reviews report irritation or burning feelings. Others shared complaints of itchiness, increased hair growth, darkening of face spots, and dry skin.

If you have sensitive skin or experience any side effects, be sure you are following the recommended Stemuderm transition process. Irritations are most likely the result of your skin adjusting to the intense formula and will eventually subside.


Is it as good as it claims?

One of the downsides to Stemuderm is that all of the reviews and before and after pictures are shared on the official website or through affiliate sellers. Which makes you question, does it work?

Reviews are generally positive with people experiencing more even skin and a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Most negative customer reviews result from individuals who experience irritation using Stemuderm. The official Stemuderm website is the best place to read real reviews as affiliates receive compensation for cream sold through their links.

With the high-end, mostly natural ingredients that are quality controlled and scientifically researched, we feel confident recommending Stemuderm. Overall, it is a decent, mid-range anti-wrinkle product.

To see a full list of our favorite anti-aging products, including Kremotex, check out our comprehensive best wrinkle cream reviews.

Where is it found?

You can buy Stemuderm through their official website or using affiliate links. It is not available through Amazon or Walmart. Coupons are not frequently available, making Stemuderm a slightly high-cost anti-aging product. The price of one month’s supply is $79.99.

Exuviance Review: Skin Issues? Let This Skin Care Line End the Struggle

Good skin care is something we all need at any age. It doesn’t matter if you’re a teen, in your mid-thirties, or seventy. There are facial products out there for you! You’ve most likely struggled with some sort of skin issue at least once in your life. Whether it’s intense acne flare-ups or dull sagging skin, there’s always something you want to improve on when it comes to your skin. Luckily, Exuviance wants to help. With a multitude of products—over 50 to be specific—you can find the perfect one that fits your needs.

Exuviance is a company that seems to care about its customers with a range of skin care lines suitable for everyone. This brand is also incredibly accessible. You can get any of their products directly from their website as well as in popular stores like ULTA Beauty. What started as a humble research venture by two dermatologists is now a highly regaled line of skin products created by NeoStrata Company.

While there are plenty other who’ve written about Exuviance, we’ve done the testing and research necessary to bring you the best reviews possible.

If you’re curious about our thoughts and opinions, keep reading for our comprehensive Exuviance reviews!

Brand Overview

The science behind Exuviance was created by two dermatologists Dr. Eugene Van Scott and Dr. Ruey Yu in Princeton, New Jersey. While searching for the benefits of alpha-hydroxyacids (AHAs) when applied to the skin, the doctors discovered that AHAs were much more than what they thought. Their research confirmed that AHAs could be used to improve the skin’s texture, moisture retention, and signs of again. Soon after, NeoStrata Company filed patents and dedicated time and money to further the company’s skin care explorations. From this, Exuviance was born.

Product Line-Up & Reviews

It might feel overwhelming with the sheer amount of options this company offers when it comes to skin care. Luckily, each product comes with the intention of helping one or more dermatological problems. All you have to do is find the right one for you. And that’s what we’re here to help with. If you’re curious about which products are the cream of the crop, keep reading!

Age Reverse Line

While this brand offers everyday products like serums, cleansers, masks, toners, sunscreen, etc., its anti-aging products are where it truly shines. In our Exuviance Age Reverse reviews, we found this line has a foundation in anti-aging research with advanced and effective anti-aging ingredients.

Our reviewers agree that the Exuviance Age Reverse Line is something you don’t want to miss out on. If you’re concerned with sagging skin, age lines, dullness, lack of elasticity, and other signs of aging, we’d definitely recommend any of the products from this line. Luckily you can buy a collection of our favorites with the Age Reverse Introductory Collection!


The Exuviance skin care line offers an abundance of peels and peeling products. Peels are perfect if you suffer from skin congestion, sagging, or uneven texture. Some contain chemicals while others don’t, so if you have sensitive skin, we’d suggest you be weary of that. Luckily, Exuviance offers peels that don’t contain abrasive exfoliating chemicals.

One of this brand’s most popular peels in their Performance Peel AP25. The researchers for our Exuviance performance peel reviews went back and forth on this product. For some, this peel might be just a bit too harsh. If this is true for your skin, you might experience some redness and an uncomfortable tingling sensation. However, if your skin takes well to this peel, then you can expect a brightened tone and smaller pores after just one use!


Serums are a great tool if you have issues with dryness, sensitivity, or aging. They’re a great source of moisture and can drastically improve the appearance of your skin. When used at night, you wake up feeling like your skin had been revitalized overnight.

We found that all of the Exuviance serums had benefits in one way or another. The Line Smooth Antioxidant Serum made users’ skin feel firm and supple. The AntiRedness Calming Serum immediately soothed inflammation and irritation. Our favorite, however, and the most highly reviewed, is the Vespera Bionic Serum. This stuff is like every great serum you ever tried all in one bottle. It’s a must try!

Moisturizers, Toners, and Eye Creams

Some of the most universally used and reviewed skin care items are moisturizers, toners, and eye creams. They serve a great purpose in your everyday life and truly help your skin. But not all are created equally, and some might work better for your skin type than others.

Exuviance has such a wide variety of all three that you truly get to customize your skin care. First off, we’d definitely recommend you begin your routine with the Moisture Balance Toner. It’s a gentle and moisturizing way to prep your skin for other products. Then followed by Glycolic Expert Moisturizer, simply because it’s a solid moisturizer that works well on all skin types as a day and night cream. And finally, for Exuviance eye cream, the DePuffing Eye Serum is a go-to, especially in the morning when your eyes are swollen and puffy from the night before.


On top of solid skin care, Exuviance makes some lovely cosmetic products. This is perfect if you enjoy wearing makeup but feel like it causes break outs or ages you. The Coverblend line has been designed to give you a natural look while treating your skin at the same time.

Coverblend reviews have been mostly positive, and we’d recommend the line for the most part. It’s true to the claims of providing a natural look while also helping the skin’s overall condition. However, these cosmetics have an incredibly poor shade range. On top of your complexion, you might want to consider how much coverage you prefer and then determine if this line is right for you.

Who Are These Products For?

The Exuviance products can be for anyone and everyone, including:

  • People of all ages and skin textures
  • People with dry, oily, aging skin, etc.
  • Dedicated skin care users
  • People who want to improve their skin with quality products

Verdict: See What Others Have to Say

It can be difficult to trust just one source when reading a review about products you’re interested in buying. But don’t just take this article’s word for it—there’s plenty of other material to give you an idea of what skin care is worth this hype and which to avoid.

We’ve done deep dives into other skin care products and how they compare, as well as reviews of similar lines. Exuviance ranks well in the list of contenders, but it isn’t our top choice.

Our Arbonne RE9 reviews will show that next time you’re looking for a quality anti-aging product, this is one you don’t want to throw off your list! Instead, give it the benefit of the doubt – it may be the best skincare decision you ever make!

A Little Bit About the Company

Instant results? It’s very normal to be skeptical about products that claim this. However, Arbonne is a renowned brand name with a wide collection of products. They have dozens of skincare and cosmetic products currently on the market. Well-known for their holistic approach to improving skin, it’s a great cruelty-free option that may very well give you exactly what you’ve been searching for!

Here are a few key points about the origins of Arbonne for those interested!

  • Arbonne was founded in 1975 by Petter Morck who was inspired to create this product after working for a Norwegian cosmetic company that used harmful ingredients to the skin.
  • After branching off, he began to develop herbal-based products that improved skin health in a cruelty-free manner.
  • Arbonne was launched with only 19 products, and today, this brand has over 200,000 consultant’s worldwide.
  • The brand sells its products in the U.S., United Kingdom, Canada, Japan, and New Zealand. Its reach is growing every day.

Arbonne sells skincare, cosmetic, bath and body products as well as nutritional supplements – all products being vegan and cruelty-free!

Since we’re here to talk about skincare, you may already be familiar with any of the following 6 skincare collections:

re9 advanced
  • Genius Ultra
  • Arbonne Intelligence
  • RE9 Advanced Prep work
  • RE9 Advanced Lifting and Contouring
  • RE9 Advanced for Men
  • Clear Future

Arbonne RE9 targets acne, sensitive skin, or in this case aging. They are a very well-rounded brand that suits a vast audience. Targeted more towards mature skin (30+ years), you’ll find it works great on all skin types. Of course, just like any other skin product you try, you want to test it out on a small patch of skin before applying to your entire face.

This brand claims to offer quick results, and they are successful in doing so. The rest of our review will go more into depth about how the makers of this product have managed to live up to their promise. After conducting the Arbonne RE9 reviews, we found that this stuff lives up to the hype—and here’s why!

Let’s Talk Ingredients!

So, what is this natural anti-aging product made of? The main ingredient in RE9 is vitamin C, which is a beneficial antioxidant in many different areas of our lives. The Arbonne RE9 Advanced Line helps rejuvenate skin at the cellular level using this antioxidant.

Vitamin C also brightens skin, diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, and evens out skin tone. Pair this with alpha hydroxy acids, which help get rid of dead skin cells, and you are looking at younger, healthier looking skin.

Another beneficial ingredient is buckthorn ceramide, which is a blend of fatty acids, hydrating brown algae extract, olive fruit oil, and peptides. All the way from the Arbonne RE9 gel cleanser to Arbonne corrective night cream, you can expect 100% cruelty-free products.

What Does the Collection Offer?

RE9 offers visible results in 24 hours. Their anti-aging collection is made for mature skin, and their products have been tested by external sources to demonstrate its results. We did a little bit of research on these clinical studies and found that its claims did add up. Results were visible within 24 hours, which if you ask us, this is insanely fast!

One clinical study includes 72 women, and the results were fascinating:

  • 83% of these women noticed an improvement in skin firmness within 24 hours
  • 92% of them reported a reduction of wrinkles within a 4-week period
  • 96% shared a reduction of fine lines within a 4-week period
  • 100% reported improvement in skin moisturization, skin texture, and smoothness

Who’s Is This Line Targeted For?

Arbonne RE9 Advanced is designed for mature skin beginning at age 30+. It is suitable for all skin types, which is great news, especially if you have sensitive skin. This brand still recommends you test it on a small patch of skin before use just to be safe and follow all application steps for best results!

What’s Available?

Browsing through Arbonne’s website or speaking with a consultant will quickly make you realize that there are hundreds of available products to choose from. We are talking skincare, cosmetic, and even supplements.

Here are 3 products that we absolutely love and that have proven to be the most popular.

1. Intensive Renewal Serum

serum oil cream

This product is very concentrated, so a little amount really goes a long way. It holds moisture in the skin, helping it maintain its firmness and lift any lines or sagginess. The ingredients work along collagen production to make this happen.

2. Night Repair Crème

The next product consumers rave about is the night crème, which is to be applied before drifting off into your beauty sleep. This crème encourages the production of collagen and hydrates your skin in the process.

3. Extra Moisture Restorative Day Crème

This product is great for dry skin. It serves as a deep moisturizer, giving you radiant skin. Having moisturized skin protects it from aging, consequently, maintaining a youthful appearance.

You will notice that these brands products have a fresh, orangey smell (most likely due to the Vitamin C). This means that not only will your skin feel incredible and boast of amazing results, but it will smell nice too.

These are only 3 of the many products this brand offers. There are also eye creams, best serums for sensitive skin, nighttime renewal masks, and so forth.

Where To Buy

So, you want to give this brand a try? If you believe this is the right skincare option for you, there are a few places where you can shop for a great deal.

  • Purchase them directly from the provider through their official website.
  • There are over 200,000 Arbonne consultants – speak with one of them.
  • Right here on our site by clicking this button!

We did notice that Arbonne RE9 products are more expensive when compared to other skincare brands. However, when considering everything they offer, it’s well worth it.

You can buy their products as sets or individually. Purchasing as a set will usually save you money. If you are thinking about purchasing the entire RE9 Advanced Set (6-piece), you’re looking at about $300.

Final Thoughts

While this brand may be a bit pricier than other skin care options, we believe they are worth trying. If you don’t absolutely love what you purchase, no worries! Arbonne offers a 45-day, money-back guarantee on all their items in case you’re not completely satisfied. So, if you’re looking at an anti-aging skincare collection to try, we strongly suggest Arbonne RE9 Advanced!

We would love to hear how it worked for you. Feel free to share your experience with us down below!

Instantly Ageless Review 2019: Results, Ingredients, Side Effects, Prices & Where To Buy

Want to learn more about this ‘miracle cream’ – also granted the nickname ‘Botox in a bottle’ – from Jeunesse that you have been hearing about?

Check out our comprehensive Jeunesse Instantly Ageless review to learn everything you need and want to know about this product.

Also be sure to check out our recommendations for the best wrinkle cream to discover what to look for in your ideal aging solution products.

What is Jeunesse Instantly Ageless?

Instantly Ageless by Jeunesse is an anti-wrinkle solution in the form of a micro cream. Devised as a safer, less costly, and more effective alternative to invasive procedures such as Botox, the serum is safe to use on areas on the face that tend to lose elasticity over time such as the forehead, around the eyes (including upper lid), eyebrows, and facial pores.

The product was developed by specialized cosmetic chemists within Jeunesse who concocted a safe, wrinkle-fighting mix of ingredients designated to serve as a facial crema capable of temporarily removing wrinkles, lifting up and firming sagging skin, and skin revitalization.

Earning headline-hitting nicknames such as ‘Botox/Facelift in a Bottle!’ you would think – or hope – that there is little room to be disappointed. After all, who wouldn’t want to achieve younger-looking skin sans the needles with an instant wrinkle cream that works?

While the effects of the cream are temporary – hence the pack of 50 vials provided within each order – this isn’t your store-brand Walmart eye cream claiming to make your skin as wrinkle-free as a 10-year old’s in thirty seconds or less.

How Does Instantly Ageless Work?

Aging effects on our skin are inevitable as we grow older, and may be accelerated by additional factors such as stress, exposure to the sun, and harsh chemicals. The skin covering our facial and neck areas lose elasticity, resulting in a sagging effect, and skin may become less smooth.

The most effective anti-aging solutions have typically come down to injection procedures, which inject molecules directly into the skin to improve the skin, remove wrinkles, and eliminate other signs of aging. However, the ‘miraculous’ results that come from these procedures are only temporary and are also known to occasionally come with unpleasant side effects.

Anti-wrinkle cremes and serums historically have shown even less impressive results, often leaving users disappointed and feeling cheated out of their money.

That is until products such as the Instantly Ageless line entered the arena to not only change the game but one-up the anti-aging results of Botox.

Free from unsafe or harsh chemicals, this facial and eye cream is much less threatening and invasive than a needle, and provides before and after results comparable to injections thanks to its effective chemical makeup.

The firming and revitalizing effects of the luminesce beauty cream, as well as its effectiveness against dark circles, occur primarily through the active ingredient, argireline, which is a peptide that has shown some evidence of entering the skin more effectively than elastin and collagen.

A woman in her mid 40s smiling

While the anti-aging serum also only produces temporary firming and anti-wrinkle effects, the near-instant and visible results have nonetheless received a great deal of buzz within the cosmetics community among cosmetic professionals and customers alike.

What Are the Ingredients?

Unlike skincare companies that scam or rip off customers with harsh or cheap chemicals, Jeunesse’s Instantly Ageless product line feature high-quality ingredients formulated to offer myriad anti-aging benefits.

The active and therefore key ingredient in this endless ageless product is argireline, which is a non-toxic peptide that is commonly found in many other anti-aging skincare products due to its effectiveness against wrinkles.

Other ingredients that are listed for their micro cream formula include Sodium Silicate, Magnesium Silicate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Iron Oxide, Phenoxyethanol, and both a red and yellow dye for the color.

How to Use the Instantly Ageless Serum

The application of the cream, as well as what you expose your skin to afterward, can affect the results. If you do not follow the correct application process, you may not reap the benefits or notice as pronounced an effect.

It is recommended you apply the sachet to clean and dry skin, to avoid any interaction with other makeup products or moisture that would affect the cream’s effectiveness. Some users have reported still seeing positive results after applying the product over a layer of foundation, but this is something you must experiment with yourself. When applying for the first time, it’s best to attempt on a clean and fresh face.

A woman after putting her makeup

Apply a thin layer of the cream by putting it on the desired area – such as the under eye for eye bag removal – lightly with a finger. You want your skin to feel slightly damp.

It’s important to note that you do want to pat the serum onto your face, not rub it in. Additionally, if you notice a sort of film on your skin after use, then that may be a sign you have used too much.

Once you have applied it to the targeted areas, try to keep your face expressionless for at least 2-3 minutes after. This will allow the cream to dissolve into your skin and start working its magic through a muscle-relaxing process.

You should start to notice the results within a couple of minutes. Afterwards, you may apply any other makeup as per your usual beauty routine as usual.

How Much Does Instant Ageless Cost?

On the Jeunesse Global company website, the instantly anti-aging cream is available for purchase in a trial pack of 50 sachets containing 0.3ml each of the beauty cream. This pack of 50 is priced at $74.95 when bought directly through the manufacturer.

Jeunesse Global cosmetics also offers a Convenience Plan, in which customers may sign up for a monthly subscription of the ageless product at the price of $54.95.

Additional retailers and cosmetic e-stores across the web, such as Amazon or eBay, also post product pages that claim to sell the miracle face lift cream and may be available for a better price.

Due to false product and scam reports, however, it is best to purchase Jeunesse through a reputable website.

How Long Does Instantly Ageless Last?

Once applied, the cream immediately starts dissolving into the skin, producing a visible effect in as little as two minutes after application, as per the label and customer testimonial.

The primary effects of the facial product – including minimization of fine lines as well as the tightening and reviving of the skin for a more youthful, glowing appearance – will last between six to nine hours.

What Are the Benefits of this Product?

There are numerous benefits attributed to this magic angel eyes skin care product as compared to other anti-aging products, as well as by its merit.

These benefits have been touted across the web by skincare bloggers, YouTube vlogger videos, Dr. Oz, and other ageless reviews that aim to give customers a good look at what they can realistically expect from the eye cream.

A woman with young glowing skin

The greatest benefits of Instant Ageless include:

  • Its key ingredient, argireline, is non-toxic but most importantly at least moderately effective at fighting wrinkles by creating a skin-tightening effect comparable to Botox injections – hence its nickname, ‘Botox in a bottle’.
  • Less invasive than Botox. Botox can be expensive and evidently involves injections into the skin. Compare this to the use of a facial cream such as ageless by Jeunesse, which shows comparable effectiveness as an anti-aging solution, and you have got a viable alternative for anyone who either doesn’t have the budget for Botox or is skittish around needles.
  • The company offers a 100% money back guarantee if customers should find that they are unsatisfied with the product within 30 days of their purchase.
  • The fast-acting results of this face cream are one of its most appealing benefits for users, providing visible results on the skin within a mere two minutes. Hello, glow!

Disadvantages of Jeunesse Ageless

No cosmetic product is perfect, and there are a few select concerns that some have expressed with regards to la Jeunesse eye and facial creams.

For instance:

  • Although argireline is a commonly-used ingredient within wrinkle remover products, the long-term safety of the peptide has not yet been confirmed. This is not necessarily uncommon among ingredients in even the most renowned cosmetic products, however, and nonetheless is viewed as, for some, a safer alternative to Botox injections.
  • There have been some general complaints about Jeunesse global, including some trouble with the trial and recurring shipping program offered by the company. Customer representatives, however, have been reported by many to be attentive in rectifying any issues with ordering, shipping, or receiving the product.
  • The product is considered on the pricier side for those who plan on making regular use of the so-called omg miracle cream. While the Convenience Plan deal offered by Jeunesse lessens the budgetary burden slightly, this isn’t your average drugstore anti-wrinkle cream, and the price of the product reflects that.
  • The ingredients of the cream can be deactivated by water, according to the company’s chemists. Therefore, you will want to be mindful of your exposure to water as well as any excessive sweating while using the product.
  • Some customers, primarily within customer review sections on retailer sites such as Amazon, have reported side effects of dryness and chalky skin after using the product.

It’s worth keeping in mind that bad reviews of skincare solutions themselves should always be taken with a grain of salt.

A woman with a brown skin

Different skin types may have different reactions to certain chemicals within products, and although the simply ageless cream has been deemed safe for use, there are always the exceptions in the review and comment sections of sites like Amazon to give other prospective customers the odd scare.

Jeunesse has held an ‘A’ rating from the Better Business Bureau and was developed by a team of qualified cosmetic chemists for safe and effective results that customers across the globe are loving.

Where to Buy

Where can I buy Instantly Ageless in stores? As a specialty product, Instantly Ageless is not available to purchase in popular chain stores such as Sephora, Walmart, Target, Walgreens, or CVS pharmacy.

Therefore, currently, the only means of obtaining this serum is by purchasing it online through either the official website or another reputable online store.

Where can I buy this product online? Many web-based stores claim to stock the popular simply ageless by Jeunesse line. However, because there have been some scam and false product claims reported online by those who have attempted to purchase the products, it is best to stick to a reputable online source. The real product may be purchased directly through the manufacturer website, on Amazon, or eBay.

Are you interested in trying a truly game-changing anti-aging product? LifeCell South Beach Skin Care is an excellent choice. With a plethora of ingredients formulated together to make you look (and feel!) younger, this is an extremely impressive all-in-one anti-aging product that you will love.

Fancy Saying Goodbye to Forehead Wrinkles Forever? We Show You How to Get Rid of Them

I do. I really do. There’s just something about the idea of those lines on my head that makes me want to cry. Luckily for me, they’re not too pronounced. But unluckily for me, I think they may be before long.

Do you have that same dreaded feeling, every time you make an expression or, god forbid, look in the mirror? Perhaps you do, you are reading this after all.

So you know what I mean then?

That dreaded feeling you get when you have to face the forehead – it’s not my favorite activity, I must say. So, to try and stop myself feeling any worse and even have a go at making the whole situation a little more pleasant (let’s face it, it’s not going to come on leaps and bounds overnight), I did a bit of research.

wrinkled paper

I guess for me, one day, it just got so much worse. One minute I had these faint lines on my forehead that you could only really see if I frowned and in the right light. Then, the next, they became a permanent feature. Needless to say, I’m not impressed – but it’s time to admit I need to do something about it.

Now, back to the research. It was good – excellent. I now finally feel like I know what I’m doing, what I shouldn’t do and what I need to do. And so I shall impart my new-found wisdom on you too..

Prevention Over Cure

You’re probably not going to want to hear this bit (I know, because I didn’t either), but there are things we all shouldn’t have done, or still be doing, if we want to be forehead wrinkle free. After all, we do know that prevention is better than cure when it comes to, well, everything – so it shouldn’t be that much of a surprise.

Staying out the sun, wearing an SPF, not smoking and sleeping well all top the list and I’m not all that surprised. I know that sun damage counts for an unbelievably huge percentage of wrinkle problems, but I don’t always remember to wear an SPF (oops). I don’t smoke, so that’s ticked off my list and I do try to sleep a lot, but my body doesn’t always let me (neither does having a job)!

But if like it is for me, it’s a bit too late for you, and you want to know a bit more on what can help you now, I have those bits covered off also…

Non-Invasive Ideas

Let’s ease you in with these, shall we! You may only need something topical to do the trick, especially if your forehead wrinkles are only faint or aren’t that deep yet and of course any source of Omega 3 can help – the fatty oils help to plump out the skin, including those pesky wrinkles.

bottle of Vaseline / petroleum jelly

Now we know that specific facial movement can cause our dreaded forehead wrinkles to form, but there is also a little trick that can help – petroleum jelly. It seems a bit silly, but the petroleum jelly works with the skin. After washing, spread a little along the forehead and it will get to work with plumping the skin and reducing the deepness of the lines. Genius, right!?

For something a little more commercial, there’s always the creams. It seems like a cliché, but there are some that work wonders – particular those with Retinol (a form of Vitamin A that works amazingly with fine lines and wrinkles) in. I’ve tried La Roche Posay’s Redermic Anti-Ageing Dermatological Treatment, Roc’s Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Filler and even Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Plump Perfect Ultra Lift and Firm Moisture Cream with SPF 30 (an easy way of getting that in) so far and I have nothing but praise for each of them. They really can do the work!

Even illuminating face primers can help – the trick being the illuminating part. They work to reflect light away from the skin and sort of distract attention away from your forehead wrinkles (to pretend they’re not there) – which sounds good to me, and it works!

Surgical Steps

For something a little more permanent, there are always the surgical options. Botox being the first. Some people are partial, and others will say never, but it’s there. Botox needs to be applied every 4-6 months to be effective and primarily works by freezing the muscles to make it impossible for them to wrinkle. I like the sound of this.

smooth dunes

Likewise, there are peels. Sometimes called a chemical peel or an acid peel, it means that the top layer(s) of skin is removed to allow the fresh skin to replace it – thus super soft and (hopefully) wrinkle free! It can seem a little bit daunting or even over the top, but professionals have been doing them for years, and I’ve seen the results – they’re great. They also work wonders for other lines and even blemishes – something other options can’t work on at the same time.

And, if all of this seems a little bit much for you at the moment, there’s always bangs! Now you may laugh, but if you have bangs, you don’t have to look at the forehead wrinkles anymore – it’s a win-win situation.

For me, I think I’m going to stick to my limited options and give my skin the hydration it needs. But that doesn’t mean to say I won’t opt for Botox or a peel if my problem persists – I will beat your forehead wrinkles, I will!

Olay Regenerist: Product Reviews, Does It Work, and Where to Buy

Looking for an age-defying product? Olay is a timeless brand that has earned a powerful reputation over the years for their anti-aging products. Considered a staple in many households, Olay has grown tremendously as a brand, embracing a few cosmetic changes of their own. Formerly known as Oil of Olay Beauty Fluid, the company has re-branded to just Olay, and they’ve implemented some new packaging and improved their formulas.

The Regenerist line of oils and serums has skyrocketed in popularity since the product’s launch in 2003. But does the Regenerist line really live up to their claims?

To help you determine whether it really works, and more importantly, whether it is right for you, we’ve put the product to the test and outlined everything you need to know before you buy.

About Olay: A Classic Icon in Skin Care

Olay is a classic brand that has stood the test of time since its rise to popularity in the 1950s. Created by Chemist, Graham Wulff, the brand was first launched with one product, and one product only—the Oil of Olay moisturizing fluid.

Wulff developed this product while in South Africa after noticing that moisturizers on the market were thick and ineffective. When the Oil of Olay Moisturizing fluid first launched it was truly one of a kind, and it helped revolutionize skin care.


Over time, the Oil of Olay brand launched more products, including a range of serums, oils, creams, and other products focused on improving the health, look, and feeling of the skin. The company is now known as simply ‘Olay,’ but its reputation for quality skincare products still puts the brand at the top of the market.

The Regenerist line, which launched in 2003, is one of the brand’s crowning achievements, containing around 27 products all focused on skincare and anti-aging.

Olay Regenerist Products and Claims

One of the things that draw consumers to Olay products the most is the brand’s impressive claims. The main focus of the Regenerist line is to improve the skin’s texture and appearance, minimize wrinkles, and protect mature skin from further damage. The line consists of a wide variety of products that each target a different skin care concern.

While there are over 20 products in the line, some of the most popular items include:

  • Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream
  • Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Cream
  • Whip Face Moisturizer
  • Cream Cleanser
  • Advanced Anti-Aging Wrinkle & Pore Vanisher Treatment
  • Instant Fix Exfoliate and Renew System
  • Lotion with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum
  • Regenerating Serum
  • Micro-Sculpting Serum
  • Anti-Aging Wrinkle Revolution Complex Moisturizer Plus Primer
  • Detoxifying Pore Scrub Facial Cleanser
  • Anti-Aging AND Eye Skin Care Regimen Kit


Whether you want to minimize wrinkles, moisturize the skin, reduce sagginess, eliminate dark circles, or simply improve the health, look, and feeling of the skin, Olay probably has a product that could work for you.

One of the greatest advantages of this line is that it is designed for all users. The fragrance-free formula prevents unnecessary irritation of the skin that could result in more damage. Also, the gentle ingredients are dermatologically-tested to work on normal, dry, or combination skin—allowing people with different skin types to reap the benefits of this product.

Overall, the Regenerist line does not claim miraculous results. However, it does claim to improve the appearance of the skin by minimizing wrinkles, providing moisture, plumping and lifting, and overall leaving it with a more youthful glow.


Each product in the Regenerist line is formulated slightly different depending on the intended effect. However, some of the key ingredients used in several products across the board include hyaluronic acid, amino peptides, B3 vitamins, Glycerin, and Dimethicone.

For a full list of ingredients, you can check the company’s website.

Overall, the ingredients used in this line have been shown to offer outstanding results. One of the stand-out ingredients is hyaluronic acid—which has been clinically proven to improve the appearance, health, and texture of the skin thanks to its moisturizing potential. There are a few ingredients. However, that isn’t for everyone. Some of these include parabens like Ethyl paraben, Propyl paraben, and Methylparaben.

Lastly, one of the best things about the ingredients is how gentle they are on the skin. Most of the products are fragrance-free, preventing allergic reactions or skin irritation. Many of the products also contain SPF, which can protect the skin from obtaining any further damage.


Choosing the right product for your needs and age group can make a huge difference as to whether you can achieve your desired results. With so many products in the line, it can be easy to find yourself asking “which oil of Olay products should I choose” but when you break down the formulas by category, it is much easier to find the right one for you. For those who want a more liquid formula, for example, the Regenerating Serum or the Micro-Sculpting Serum will work best. If instead, you want a more creamy lotion, the Micro-sculpting cream or the Regenerist Lotion offer a whipped and velvety consistency.

Product Reviews

Countless online reviews have raved about the Olay serums, oils, and creams, claiming impressive age-defying results.

One of the most popular products in the line, for example, is the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream. On multiple skincare review sites, this product is rated 4 or 5 stars, with many of the negative reviews criticizing the product’s dispenser/packaging rather than the actual results. The before and after photos show that the product can work, especially with consistent use.

Compared to the Pro X or the Total Effects lines, the Regenerist has better reviews and seems to offer better results. Of course, just like any skin care product, the Regenerist formula isn’t for everyone. However, the majority of the reviews are positive, and the product appears to live up to its claims.


For those looking for the best anti-aging serum or cream, we’ve also compared Olay to other popular skincare brands like Rodan and Fields to help you find the best one for you. If you don’t think this brand is right for you, CLICK HERE to check out the best Olay alternative.

Final Verdict: Say “Olé” with Olay

So, the online reviews seem to support Olay as a brand, but does the Regenerist line really work? Based on our research and reviews, the answer is yes! However, your results may vary depending on your skin type.

On Olay’s website, the brand claims the Regenerist line is best for those with dry, normal, or combination skin and we certainly agree. This isn’t to say, however, that those with oily skin can’t use the brand. Some of the best products for oily skin include the lotion, eye cream, and night treatment.

Also, if you have very mature skin, we recommend using multiple products in combination for the best results. The Regenerist 7 in 1 Anti-Aging moisturizer, for example, offers powerful results for a great price. The 3 point super age-defying cream is also a great option for those who really want to see a visible difference in their skin quickly.

Lastly, just like all skin care products, the Olay Regenerist line takes time to show effects, which is why we recommend daily use for the fastest results. The brand is not offering a miracle solution to aging or claiming to be the fountain of youth, however, with consistent use we’ve seen the transformational power of Olay Regenerist.


Where to Buy

If you’re ready to say “Olé” to your wrinkles, the Olay Regenerist line is here to help!

About LifeCell

LifeCell is a skin treatment line created and sold by South Beach Skincare that claims all-in-one anti-aging power. It first gained widespread popularity in 2015 when the brand used photos of celebrities posing with the products to advertise the line. Life Cell offers multiple products from face creams to under-eye ointments and other treatments that can reverse the effects of aging to give the skin a youthful glow.

One of the main differences between LifeCell and other products on the market is its unique formulation, using plant-based stem cell technology. Specifically, LifeCell’s formula is inspired by a rare Swiss Apple called the Uttwiler Spätlauber apple. This tart apple may not seem unusual at first glance, but scientists realized that the Uttwiler Spätlauber apple had the power to remain fresh and preserved significantly longer than other apples and fruit. After conducting research and studies, scientists were able to understand how the stem cells in the fruit work and replicated the behavior in a powerful formula that LifeCell was able to harness and package for human skin.

What the Experts Say

Overall, LifeCell has received somewhat mixed reviews. Many professionals have supported the product, stating it combines state-of-the-art skincare technology with powerful ingredients to achieve its results. Some Dermatologists and other skincare experts have gone so far as to say that LifeCell offers better and safer results than facelifts or cosmetic injections. In fact, in 2016, a third party conducted a clinical trial to confirm that Life Cell can tighten the skin to prevent sagging.

Because everyone’s skin is so different, it may be difficult to know if LifeCell is worth the price for you. Based on our review of the product, it is created using powerful anti-aging ingredients, and we appreciate that the formula is paraben free and inspired by nature. For those who have success with this product, the results can be significant and well worth the cost.

However, just like all skincare products, LifeCell may not be for everyone. There have been some negative reviews of the product, claiming that it is a scam and that it does not work. Based on our review of the product, we believe that whether or not it works for you depends on your skin type and your unique needs. It also doesn’t help that LifeCell is one of the more expensive products on the market. However, there is a free trial for those interested in trying the formula.

Our final verdict is that if this product works for your skin type, it can be well worth the money and offer powerful anti-aging effects in a convenient all-in-one formula. However, we do recognize that many other great products offer significant results for a fraction of the cost.
