Azalex Gel comes to us from BENEV, a company that is dedicated to providing women with high quality pharmaceuticals, “functional” cosmetics and dietary supplements, as the company website points out. Their goal is to lead the health care industry by producing products that are designed specifically for the immune system and anti-aging. However, the Azalex Gel is primarily geared towards women who have skin issues like rosacea and acne – not fine lines and wrinkles.

This product claims to reduce the redness and broken blood vessels associated with rosacea, with visible results in as little as seven weeks. It is also supposed to noticeably “brighten” the skin within that period of time. According to the BENEV website, research shows that regular use of Azalex Gel will reduce the appearance of rosacea by as much as 41% in eight weeks. We could not find specifics for the research quoted. The company website also says that the BENEV products are only available for sale to physicians. However, we found online stores that sell the Azalex Gel directly to the consumer.

Product Details

The primary active ingredient in the Azalex Gel is azelaic acid, in a concentration of 10%. This ingredient is found in many gels and creams for the skin, and is mainly dispensed with a prescription. Azelaic acid is recommended by doctors to treat the symptoms of rosacea, including the redness, swelling and lesions that usually accompany this condition. In a cream form, azelaic acid is often prescribed to treat acne. It is usually applied to the skin twice a day; morning and evening to clean skin for best results. While it is an effective treatment for these skin conditions, it is not a cure. To continue to see improvement, you will need to continue to use the product.

There are potential side effects with azelaic acid, including a stinging or tingling at the area after application, itching, burning or a rash. In some cases, these side effects can become serious enough to call your doctor. It is important to talk to your doctor about other medical conditions you might have prior to using products like Azalex Gel that feature azelaic acid, since interactions might occur. Azelaic acid should not be used if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant.

The Good

  • The ingredients in this product are effective at treating conditions like acne or rosacea.
  • Adequate warnings appear to be provided.

The Bad

  • This is not a product to consider if you are looking for anti-aging skin care, since there are no anti-aging ingredients found in the formula.
  • The product is available through your doctor and does carry the risk of potentially dangerous side effects.
  • Research on this product is not well documented on the BENEV website.

The Bottom Line

If you are battling with a condition like acne or rosacea, it might be worth talking to your doctor about whether Azalex Gel is right for you. If you are looking for a way to reduce lines and wrinkles, this is not the product to consider.

Top Anti-Aging Cream for 2014: Rejuval Skin

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Rejuval Skin is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care.

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go
