Afirm Review


Afirm is a retinol cream that claims to have the strongest concentration of retinol than any other cream. It comes in three different strengths of: 1X, 2X, and 3X. The makers claim that even consumers with sensitive skin can use Afirm. With higher concentrations of retinol being used, Afirm claims that the product will smooth, and provide even skin tone as well as firm the skin.

Product Details

Afirm is available several online retailers. At the time of our review, there was no official product website available for Afirm. The Afirm retinol cream provides three options to consumers: 1X, 2X, and 3X. The 1X contains only 0.15% retinol and this is the one that is recommended for users with sensitive skin. The 2X product provides 0.3% retinol and is geared more towards individuals with normal to fair skin. And last but not least, the 3X is the strongest of the three products with 0.6% retinol and should only be used by consumers that do not have sensitive skin. The Afirm retinol cream products are said to fix sun damaged skin, smooth and firm fine lines and wrinkles, and even unclogs pores and even tighten them by removing the dirt. After reviewing the Afirm product, we could find no other ingredients listed on any online retailers websites.

The Good

  • Afirm is available through several online retailers.
  • Afirm provides three different concentrations of retinol to choose from.
  • Afirm is somewhat affordable at about $50 or less.

The Bad

  • No official product website for Afirm at the time of our review.
  • Retinol seems to be the main ingredient in the Afirm product and is not a strong anti-aging product.
  • There are no before and after photos available online for Afirm to provide proof that this product is effective.

The Bottom Line

Afirm retinol cream is available through several online retailers but not through any brick and mortar locations from what our research shows. The product is sold at a fairly reasonable price of about $50 or less. Afirm does not seem to be part of any particular product line, but is produced by TxSystems along with several other types of anti-aging products so there were not actual complimentary products to be used with this Afirm retinol cream. Our research found that the main ingredient was retinol, and no other ingredients seem to be listed on any of the online retailer’s websites. Retinol is vitamin A, that comes from animal products and doesn’t necessarily have scientific backing to prove that it promotes any skin care benefits. We feel that the product should provide other strong anti-aging ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid or Matrixyl 3000 that are proven to promote cellular turnover. Also, there should be customer testimonials and before and after photos provided in order to provide proof that this product is effective. At the time of our research, we could find none.
