Genisphere is yet another product that claims to be an excellent alternative to injections such as Botox. The product manufacturer calls Genisphere “the great new anti-wrinkle breakthrough of the 21st century”. Genisphere is supposed to make your skin look much smoother and younger in just a few minutes and claims to be faster than rival creams from Chanel and Lancome, as well as Botox injections.
The official website doesn’t seem to have much going on. There are a couple of pictures and a short video that plays automatically which describe Genisphere a little bit, as well as what the product is supposed to do. Apparently, it contains microscopic spheres called QuSomes that are absorbed into your skin and naturally migrate beneath wrinkles. Once there, they absorb moisture that is already present in your body, which causes the QuSomes to expand, pushing the wrinkles out from the bottom. The result is skin that has a visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
The official Genisphere website is not very informative, in our opinion (and we’ve seen quite a few!) There are no ingredients listed anywhere at all, but it does have a small area where you can review common wrinkle cream ingredients. With a little digging around on various retailer sites we were able to obtain the actual list of ingredients straight from the bottle. There is a decent mix of known wrinkle fighters in there and the inclusion of hyaluronic acid is very nice. There is no reason these ingredients shouldn’t also be posted on the official website.
Genisphere Ingredients: Water, Cetyl Alcohol, PEG-12 Glyceryl Distearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Glycerin, Camellia Oleifera (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Camellia sinensis (White Tea) Leaf Extract, Vitis vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hyaluronic Acid, Silica Dimethyl Silyate, Butylene Glycol, Cyclomethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, PEG-100 Stearate, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Ammonium Acyloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Phenoxyethanol, and Caprylyl Glycol.
- Genisphere has been “on sale” via the official website for $39.95 instead of the usual $99.95 for quite a while.
- Contains hyaluronic acid, which is an amazing hydration agent and proven wrinkle fighter.
- Terrible website. Seems to have been made by someone unfamiliar with web design and looks more like a blog.
- No information about the manufacturer is provided on the website.
- No clinical trials are available and third party testimonials are mostly negative.
- Info on a product return policy/satisfaction guarantee is nowhere to be found.
The Bottom Line
Genisphere sounds pretty reasonable and the science behind it seems sound. Unfortunately, without any type of research or clinical trials posted on the official website and numerous negative testimonials around the Internet, we can’t really see Genisphere as a good wrinkle fighter. Occasionally Genisphere will offer customers a free 30 day supply so if you can find that, it couldn’t hurt to give it a try.
