At the time of this review, it appears that the Chii Lih products are no longer being offered by most online retailers. There also doesn’t seem to be much of an online presence for the company that makes these products or for the products themselves. However, in light of the fact that the Chii Lih creams are still offered through a scattering of retailers and through auction houses, we believe it is important to educate consumers about the formulas of these products and to evaluate them as effective anti-aging choices. If a consumer chooses to try these products for herself, it is important to note that subsequent purchases may be difficult to find.
Because there is not a Chii Lih website available, we drew our information from online retailers. This means that we were unable to locate customer testimonials or a money back guarantee for the products. This is concerning, since this information is often an indication of a company’s confidence in the product. The Chii Lih products, which include a day and night cream designed to be used together, are offered for a reasonable price of around $22 each at the time of this review. Consumers can find the products on auction sites for even less.
The ingredients in the Chii Lih Day Cream include Titanium Dioxide, Cetyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Monostearate, Propyl Glycol, Beeswax, Isopropyl Myristate, Vaselin Orange II, Perfume, Lanolin, Bearberry, Arnica, and Vitamin E.
It appears at first glance that the primary function of the Chii Lih Day Cream is to moisturize and offer sun protection. There is some concern over the titanium dioxide that is listed at the top of the ingredient list. While this substance is an effective sunscreen, there has also been some speculation that it may be a carcinogen. Bearberry is an antibacterial ingredient used to lighten the skin, which is the active ingredient that claims to eliminate age spots, freckles and pimples in this formula. It is also a known antioxidant, along with the vitamin E that is found in the formula. Unfortunately, we do not see any proven anti-wrinkle ingredients in this mix, such as argireline, hyaluronic acid or fresh collagen.
- The Chii Lih creams are available online for a reasonable price.
- No proven anti-wrinkle ingredients are found in the formula.
- There are some concerns over the safety of titanium dioxide.
- There is no corporate or product websites for the Chii Lih line.
- We could not find a money back guarantee or customer testimonials.
The Bottom Line
The Chii Lih products appear to be on their way out of retail stores, with most of the available inventory only offered through online auction houses. This means that even if consumers tried and liked the product, the supply would probably be very much limited. Since the creams do not contain any proven anti-aging substances to speak of, we believe consumers would be wise to look elsewhere for their anti-aging needs.
