Beauvage is a line of skin care products and health supplements manufactured by a company in the Channel Islands. The company’s main boast about the Beauvage line is that all of the products are tax-free, since the Channel Islands are an international tax haven. The Beauvage line includes moisturizers, masks, and treatments all based on natural ingredients. All of the products can be purchased from the company website but are priced in pounds sterling and shipped from the Channel Islands so shipping may be expensive.
The Beauvage website itself is reasonably informative providing details of the benefits of the product along with application instructions. There is also a section for clinical results but the results listed are for the key ingredients in the product not for the products themselves. A large disappointment is that the company does not provide full ingredient lists for any of its products, revealing only some of the key ingredients. This makes it difficult for those with skin allergies and sensitivities to know how the products are likely going to react with their skin.
We will take a closer look at the Beauvage Instant 4 Minute Face Lift, since it claims to be a Botox alternative, instantly improving the look of fine lines and wrinkles and providing longer-term benefits.
The Beauvage Instant 4 Minute Face Lift consists of two products: the Micro-Tensing Serum and the Moisture Infusion Cream. The first product lists wheat protein and seaweed as its active ingredients. These are said to provide immediate lifting to the skin. The Moisture Infusion Cream contains hyaluronic acid, sodium PCA, ginseng extracts, multi-vitamins and multi-peptides. The stand out ingredient in the cream is the hyaluronic acid, which has been clinically proven to hold over 1,000 times its weight in water and can deeply hydrate the skin. We always look for this ingredient in an effective anti-aging or anti-wrinkle product. The inclusion of multi-peptides is also of interest, however we prefer expertly formulated peptides such as Matrixyl 3000 which stimulates the body’s own collagen production and Argiriline which smoothes wrinkles by relaxing the underlying facial muscles. There is no indication that the Beauvage Instant 4 Minute Face Lift contains these important ingredients.

The Bottom Line
There are literally thousands of skin care products on the market today, many of them claiming to reverse the signs of aging and eliminate wrinkles. Very few of these products are ever effective at doing that. Without more information provided by Beauvage, we are unable to assess whether the product would be able to deliver the promised benefits. Tax free is appealing, but the implied lack of oversight is actually a bit off-putting. Consumers may wish to seek out a product that contains high-quality potent ingredients like Matrixyl 3000 and Argiriline from companies that stand behind their products with a money-back guarantee.
