The Calstrum line of skin care comes to us from the Seriesse International Company that was founded by Jennifer Flavin-Stallone. The Calstrum products are just one of many lines that are offered by the Seriesse company, with a variety of formulas for makeup and skin care that are designed to meet a wide range of needs. The Calstrum skin care line is created for women over 55, and are made with ultra luxurious ingredients to “help support and revive vulnerable and delicate skin”, according to the company website. Most of these individual Calstrum products claimed to improve the overall appearance of aging skin, but only the eye crème promised to reduce the look of lines and wrinkles around this area.

The Calstrum line includes a cleanser, serum, crème, eye crème and an oral supplement. You can also purchase a set of the Calstrum cleanser, crème and eye crème at a discounted price. The prices overall were fairly reasonable, with a complete set running under $100. We found the products for sale through the company website, independent distributors and the Home Shopping Network. No other online retailers were found. The website did not provide information about any type of money back guarantee, nor were Calstrum testimonials available at the time of this review.

Product Details

While these products are marketed to women who are over 55, they do not make the same claims as many anti-wrinkle creams and serums. The crème promises to “optimize skin’s elasticity” and restore a younger look. The only ingredient we found in this formula that is clinically proven in the fight against aging is soluble collagen. It is not listed as a primary ingredient, however; which leads us to wonder if there is enough of the substance within the formula to really make a difference. The Calstrum eye crème does claim to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and also contains soluble collagen in the ingredient list. However, other proven wrinkle treatments like matrixyl 3000 and argireline are absent from the listing.

Calcium gluconate is the primary ingredient listed on most of the Calstrum line, which is said to strengthen fragile skin that thins as it ages and improve the skin’s support structure. While we found plenty of evidence to support the idea of calcium supplements in strengthening the body as it ages, we could not find much on topical calcium as an effective anti-aging ingredient.

The Good

  • The products are reasonably priced and available on the company website.
  • The Calstrum line is focused on a few key products, making it easy to choose the one for your needs.
    ,

The Bad

  • Aside from soluble collagen, there are no proven anti-aging substances in the formulas.
  • The company website does not appear to provide a money back guarantee.
  • We could find no testimonials about the product at this time.
  • Calstrum’s customer service policies are not very clear.

The Bottom Line

While the Calstrum skin care line does provide soluble collagen in its formulas, other important anti-aging substances are conspicuously absent from the list. For the price, you may get a bigger bang for your skin care buck elsewhere. However, if you find that your under-eye area is a particular problem, you may wish to investigate the Calstrum eye cream a bit further.

Top Wrinkle Cream for 2014: Revivasol

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Revivasol 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. By recommending lifestyle changes like diet and exercise, Revivasol has firmly placed their customers health first. We never see skin care companies doing this sort of marketing. In addition, scientifically-proven results on how the formula works says it all, and the Revivasol website provides ample proof. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the clinical studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Revivasol is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Revivasol Go



Vivexin

(Optional- For Enhanced Results): Vivexin

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
