The DISTINCTION line of skin care products is made by Leigh Valentine, who is frequently seen on QVC with the products. The DISTINCTION Face Lift Kit is a 5-piece product grouping, including Mask Powder, Mask Activator, Firmalift, Skin Renewal Booster, and a Face Lift Brush.

The main active ingredient in the DISTINCTION Firmalift cream is the proprietary elastisome, which appears to be a form of Butylene Glycol, an ingredient found in many skin care products. The DISTINCTION website does provide details of a clinical study supporting the conclusion that Firmalift reduces wrinkles by up to 57% in four weeks. The DISTINCTION products are available for purchase on the Leigh Valentine website. The company provides a product discount for joining their membership club. Joining the club will allow you to receive refill products automatically every month at a reduced price. There does not appear to be a product guarantee on the website, nor are free samples or trial sizes offered.

Product Details

The DISTINCTION Mask Powder and the Mask Activator are mixed together and applied to the face with a brush every three days for the first two weeks, and every week thereafter. The mask products contain a number of active ingredients. Among them is AHA or alpha hydroxy acid, an ingredient commonly found in anti-wrinkle or skin rejuvenation formulations. AHA can cause redness and itching of the skin and can also increase a person’s photosensitivity, which means it will react with the skin if exposed to direct sunlight for up to a week following the treatment.

The Firmalift contains a patented form of Butylene Glycol, found often in skin care products. Also included are Gotu Kola and Echinacea extracts. The website does not provide information as to the effectiveness of these ingredients on skin firming. Firmalift is to be used morning and night according to the instructions.

The Skin Renewal Booster is to be used morning and evening after the Firmalift. The Skin Renewal Booster contains natural fruit acids that encourage cell turnover to remove old, dead skin. The product also contains alpha hydroxy acid or AHA, which can cause skin sensitivities.

All of the DISTINCTION Face Lift Kit products contain parabens, such as methylparaben and propylparaben, cosmetic preservatives that are known allergens. Many high-quality skin care products do not include parabens in their formulations. Because of the number of ingredients that could trigger sensitivities or allergic reactions, it is important for those with sensitive skin to study the ingredient listing prior to purchasing the product.

The Good

  • Can purchase products on the company’s website.
  • May reduce wrinkles based on clinical study.
  • Can receive a reduced price through club membership.

The Bad

  • Many product ingredients have no information provided regarding their effectiveness.
  • No money-back guarantee is offered.
  • There are no apparent free samples or trial sizes available.
  • Products contain known allergens.

The Bottom Line

The DISTINCTION Face Lift Kit implies that it can deliver surgical results with topical applications. There is not enough available information to be able to assess that claim. Although a clinical study is quoted on the effectiveness of one of the active ingredients in the product, there is no evidence of clinical studies on the product formulation itself. Proven ingredients like peptides do not appear to be included in these products. If you suffer from skin sensitivities or allergies, you should be very wary of this product set. There are many anti-wrinkle products on the market with high-quality proven ingredients that are non-allergenic and carry a money-back guarantee. You may wish to choose one of those skin care creams or serums instead.

Nue Science Bottle

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
