There is no doubt that the Charme system takes a totally different approach to skin care. The question is whether this unique system can actually deliver one-of-a-kind results or if it is another gimmick catering to the high demand for anti-aging products today. The process of the Charme unit is one of hydration using a specific water balance that is sprayed onto the skin. The company website does offer plenty of information about precisely how the unit works, and it includes customer testimonials to back up the product’s claims.

The first thing we wish to comment on with the Charme system is the price. One online retailer offers the handheld unit with two base solutions for about $433 at the time of this review. Additional base solutions are offered for about $35 for a set of two. This tells us that the product is not only very expensive to purchase, but will also cost a significant amount to maintain.

Product Details

The Charme unit works on an “electrolysis process” according to the company website. This basically means that the solution passes over an electrically charged plate that separates the acidic water from the alkaline water. The ultra-fine particles that remain are said to be better able to penetrate the skin, offering hydration and anti-bacterial properties. There is a list of clinical studies that have looked at the benefits of electrolyzed water and its effect on various bacteria. However, these studies did not appear to be focused specifically on electrolyzed water and anti-aging skin care. There is some suggestion by the company that effective hydration leads to fewer fine lines and wrinkles, but does not necessarily address how it will diminish wrinkles that already exist.

The Good

  • The system that Charme uses has been studied for other health benefits.
  • The company website provides customer testimonials to back up product claims.

The Bad

  • The system is expensive to purchase and requires regular maintenance costs.
  • The hydrations system has not been effectively proven as an anti-aging tool.
  • The system does not use known anti-aging substances like hyaluronic acid, matrixyl or collagen.
  • Topical solutions may provide greater benefit for less money.

The Bottom Line

We would certainly not disagree that effective hydration of the skin is essential in the anti-aging process. However, topical products that contain sodium hyaluronate can successfully hydrate the skin and help it retain its moisture for a fraction of the price as the Charme system. In addition, topical solutions can include other proven ingredients like matrixyl, argireline and collagen for maximum benefit. We would encourage consumers to save their money for proven products like these rather than chasing gimmicky systems that have yet to be proven in the war on wrinkles.

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.

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this!
