|DISTINCTION Reverse Gravity||
DISTINCTION Reverse Gravity is one of many skin care renewal products from Leigh Valentine, who is frequently seen on QVC with her products. The DISTINCTION Reverse Gravity serum contains Anti-Sag Technology RG30, which the company claims lifts sagging skin around the mouth and neck up to 11% in four weeks and 18% in eight weeks. It is marketed as a companion product for use with the DISTINCTION Face Lift Kit.
DISTINCTION Reverse Gravity serum also contains Elastin to improve the elasticity of the skin, and Vitamins A and E to nourish the skin. Like all DISTINCTION skin care products, the Reverse Gravity serum can be purchased directly on the Leigh Valentine website. There does not appear to be a product guarantee available on purchase, nor are free samples or trial sizes offered. The website references a clinical study showing the anti-sag results of RG30 but does not provide enough information to be able to determine the outcome of the study.
The main ingredient in the DISTINCTION Reverse Gravity serum is the proprietary Anti-Sag Technology RG30. According to the ingredient list, RG30 is made up of: Ethoxydiglycol, Centella Asiatica Extract, Echinacea Angustifolia Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, and SD Alcohol 40-B.
Ethoxydiglocol is a cosmetic grade solvent used as a transport medium for other ingredients. Centella, Echinacea and Rosemary extracts and essential oils are commonly used in higher-quality skin care formulations but there appears to be little information as to their effectiveness on skin elasticity. Also included in the DISTINCTION Reverse Gravity formulation are methylparaben and propylparaben, cosmetic preservatives that are known allergens. Many higher-quality skin care products exclude parabens. Synthetic colors are also used in this product. If you have skin sensitivities or allergies, you should study the ingredient list of this product carefully prior to purchasing.

The Bottom Line
DISTINCTION Reverse Gravity serum promises that it will provide significant lifting results around the mouth and neck within four weeks. Unfortunately, there simply isn’t enough information to support the company’s claims. Without being able to try the product first or return it if it triggers an allergic reaction, putting the money out for this product is a risk. There are many other skin toning and firming products on the market that include proven ingredients, such as peptides, that increase collagen production and firm the skin. You may wish to investigate those before purchasing DISTINCTION products such as Reverse Gravity.
