Correctionist is a line of skin care products from American International Industries, a company that “is committed to creating innovative, market-driven products”, according to the company website. The Correctionist line is an 8-part skin care system that is designed to go beyond the surface of the skin to treat the signs of aging “at the cellular level.” The products are available through some beauty supply stores and online retailers. We were unable to find a money back guarantee or customer testimonials to back up the claims made by the manufacturer of these products.
Correctionist claims to “reduce deep and moderate wrinkles, resurface fine lines, block wrinkle formation, even out skin tone, repair cellular damage and smooth and firm the skin.” While this is a tremendous amount of benefit promised from a single product line, we fear the 8-step process will be an instant turn-off to many consumers. Besides the cost of so many products, there is a large time commitment to follow such an involved skin care regimen twice a day. However, we will look at the Correctionist products and the company more closely to see if this process is worth the time and money.
In perusing the various products in the Correctionist line, we were very disappointed to find that the product website did not provide complete ingredient lists for any of them. This makes it difficult to assess whether the formulas have the necessary active ingredients to follow through with their promises. It also makes it risky for consumers to purchase these Correctionist products without knowing if there will be a possible allergic reaction to one of the ingredients.
Of the ingredients that were provided, hyaluronic acid appears to be one of the only substances that have been proven to be effective in turning back the clock on our skin. Hyaluronic acid is an excellent hydrator that can smooth the surface of the skin and reduce the look of fine lines. However, it is not particularly effective in diminishing the appearance of wrinkles, unless it is combined with other proven ingredients like argireline, matrixyl or soluble collagen. We did not find any of these substances listed in the Correctionist formulas.
- Many of the Correctionist products contain hyaluronic acid.
- Other proven anti-aging ingredients like matrixyl and argireline are missing from the formulas.
- We were unable to find a money back guarantee or customer testimonials.
- The 8-step Correctionist regimen recommended is time consuming and costly.
The Bottom Line
We appreciate that the Correctionist line has tried to incorporate a full skin care program into their anti-aging line. However, we feel that few consumers will be able to keep up with the cost or time commitment of such an involved program. We are also concerned that full ingredient lists did not seem to be available and the ingredients that were listed are not the most potent to be found in a contemporary anti-aging formula. Your skin care dollars may be better spent elsewhere.
