The Helena Rubinstein Prodigy skin care line is manufactured by Helena Rubinstein, who are themselves a division of L’Oreal Cosmetics. The anti-wrinkle cream market is a very crowded field, and Helena Rubinstein Prodigy claims to bring the patented active ingredient “encapsulated bio sap” to the table. The company claims that this innovative key ingredient has been comprehensively researched. The Helena Rubinstein Prodigy skin treatment is a cream that is meant to be applied twice a day, in the morning and evening. Users who achieve optimal results will experience improvements in smoothness, firmness, radiance, complexion and hydration. This product is marketed primarily towards women, and no mention is made as to whether it is suitable for men as well.

Helena Rubinstein appears to be marketed as an upscale brand of skin care products, and other lines include a sun care division and an extended makeup line. Helena Rubinstein Prodigy is intended by the manufacturer to be a treat as well as a skin care tool, and the online product literature refers to it as a “selfish pleasure.” With this in mind, the manufacturer provides elaborate four step application instructions. These consist of a light massage, firm strokes over face and neck, then light “toning pinches” to aid with circulation.

Product Details

So let’s get back to Helena Rubinstein Prodigy’s main claim to success, the active ingredient Encapsulated Bio Sap. What is this ingredient? According to manufacturer claims, Encapsulated Bio Sap is a patented combination of 13 potent age-fighting ingredients. They have been encapsulated via a special process modeled on tree sap. Helena Rubinstein claims that all of the active ingredients used in Prodigy have been trapped inside “a stable double-weave network” that ensures “maximum efficiency” and increased potency.

We came up with this list of active ingredients in Helena Rubinstein Prodigy, but we can’t be sure if it is complete: Gatuline, Pro Vitamin B5, Ruscus, Caffeine, Acacia Honey, Vitamin E, Ceramide 5, Cholesterol, Roy Jelly, Rice Peptides, Soya Proteins, Ginger, Ruscus, White Grape Extract, Vitamin C.

Unfortunately, we were not able to find a full ingredient list, so some users with sensitive skin will definitely want to test for allergies before using the product as directed.

The Good

  • Application instructions are given on official website.
  • Product’s scent has been elaborately formulated.
  • Product is backed up by a well established cosmetics giant.

The Bad

  • Despite heavy marketing, no price points are given for this product.
  • No info on where to find this product is given on official site.
  • Little info is given about actual product ingredients.
  • Manufacturer does not seem to offer a money back guarantee or a free product trial.

The Bottom Line

Helena Rubinstein Prodigy may, in fact, be a case of over-marketing. For example, the official product site devotes a whole page to praising the product’s packaging. But once you get past the glamour, it can be tricky to figure out exactly what the manufacturers are saying. The Helena Rubinstein Prodigy cream seems to fall somewhere between a skin treatment and a luxury cream, but few details are given about the product’s alleged miracle “Bio-Sap.” We’d like to at least see a full ingredient list or a recommended price.

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

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
