|20 Minute Facelift||
The 20-Minute Facelift is advertised as a Botox alternative that will diminish fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone, make skin look more radiant, and firm facial muscles. The 20-Minute Facelift is the product of Momentum Direct, a company that has specialized in diet supplements and skin care since 1995. However, the company website no longer appears to be fully functional at the time of this review, which makes us wonder if they are continuing to stand behind the products that they manufacture. We did find the 20-Minute Facelift website, which still offers this product for sale.
The 20-Minute Facelift website provides many customer testimonials and invites customers to try it for free for thirty days. We also found websites with complaints from consumers who said this product did not work as promised and could not get refunds on their purchases. This leads us to wonder if this risk free trial is really as free from risk as the company promises. We were pleased to find the website also offers a full ingredient list for the product, allowing consumers to decide for themselves whether this formula will be effective and safe.
The 20-Minute Facelift includes the following ingredients: Aloe Vera gel, jojoba oil, hydrolyzed elastin, soluble collagen, sodium PCA, green tea extract, panthenol (vitamin B-5), soy bean oil, avocado oil, butylene glycol, matricaria recutita extract, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), retinyl palmitate (vitamin A), ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and glycereth-26. In addition to providing this list, the website also goes into detail about what each of these ingredients will do for your skin.
The only proven anti-aging ingredient that we see in this mix is soluble collagen. Collagen is a substance that is lost as we age, leaving sagging skin and wrinkles. Adding collagen to mature skin can successfully plump the complexion and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. However, soluble collagen is much more effective when it is combined with patented anti-aging ingredients like matrixyl and argireline. This formula does not seem to include either of these ingredients.
- The 20-Minute Facelift website provides customer testimonials and a money back guarantee.
- Soluble collagen is included in the formula.
- The company that makes this product no longer seems to have an official online presence.
- Complaints about the product and the company can be found online.
- There are few patented anti-wrinkle ingredients found in the formula.
The Bottom Line
The 20-Minute Facelift has been touted as the Botox alternative. However, there are numerous anti-aging products on the market that make a similar claim. Some of those products have ingredients like matrixyl and argireline, which have been proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We would encourage consumers to look for products like these to get the greatest benefit from their skin care dollar.
