The term “circadia” can be translated as “circa dia” or around the day. This is the philosophy of the Circadia skin care line, providing a range of products that are designed to work harmoniously with the natural day and night cycles of life. The company was started by Dr. Peter Pugliese, who is touted as the “undisputed pioneer of cosmetic research, formulation and education in the field of skin health”, according to the Circadia website. Dr. Pugliese has spent the past 40 years in the field of skin care and health, and the result is the Circadia skin care line. This line offers products to address a whole host of skin types and concerns, including acne treatment and anti aging products.

One Circadia product that is of particular interest to us is the Circadia Myo-Cyte Plus gel. This formula claims to have firming and tightening abilities that can stop the signs of aging and restore a more youthful look to the skin. This product can be purchased for personal use through a variety of online retailers and private distributors. It is also available to spa personnel for professional use on websites tailored just for them. The Circadia Myo-Cyte Plus gel is expensive, selling for around $150 at the time of this review. We were unable to find information about a money back guarantee or customer testimonials anywhere on the company website.

Product Details

The ingredients listed for the Circadia Myo-Cyte Plus gel are Acetyl Hexapeptide, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3, Hyaluronic Acid, Passion Flower Extract, L-Carnosine, L-Ascorbic Acid. Instructions advise consumers to apply a small amount of the gel to wrinkle-prone areas two or three times a day.

We are very impressed with the combination of ingredients in this Circadia formula, since a number of proven anti-aging substances are included on the list. For example, acetyl hexapeptide, also known as argireline, has been touted as the Botox alternative because it can effectively relax the muscles of the face that can cause wrinkles. Palmitoyl pentapeptide-3 is also known by its commercial name matrixyl, a substance that is effective in stimulating collagen production and reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a skin hydrator that can smooth the surface of the skin and diminish the appearance of fine lines in the process.

The Good

  • Circadia Myo-Cyte Plus gel contains many proven anti-wrinkle ingredients.
  • There is good information on the company website in terms of ingredients, and testing that goes into the products.

The Bad

  • The company does not appear to offer customer testimonials or a money back guarantee.
  • The product is extremely expensive.
  • This particular Circadia product is not as readily available as some others.

The Bottom Line

The ingredients listed in the formula have a proven track record for diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving younger looking skin in its wake. However, when you consider the high price tag of the Circadia Myo-Cyte Plus gel, you may want to look for similar ingredients in less expensive packaging.

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Rejuval Skin is our top choice.

(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

One Comment/Question/Answer to Circadia

    I recently used the Circadia Post Peel Balm after microneedling/IPL skin. It caused a breakout and more of an irritation to my skin. Fortunately, my esthetician will allow me to return the product ($50) but she has to eat the cost. I believe this company is unethical that they do not stand by their product. Their are many other great products out there and I will not be using theirs again!
