|Lexli Skin Care||
The Lexli Skin Care line is based on aloe vera and developed by a board certified plastic surgeon. The Lexli Skin Care line includes moisturizers, cleansers, toners and serums. Some of the products are specifically targeted at wrinkle reduction. We will focus on those products during this review to see how they might compare with the hundreds of other anti-aging formulations on the market today.
All of the Lexli Skin Care products are available for purchase on the company’s website, however, you must register with them before you can access the online store area or find out any of the prices. This may deter some potential customers from exploring these products more fully. There does not appear to be a satisfaction guarantee offered which means that if you are not happy with the products or if they trigger an allergic reaction, you may not be able to get your money back. There also does not seem to be product samples or trial sizes available to allow you to test out the products before you invest in them.
Lexli Skin Care products are based on aloe vera. Aloe vera is a succulent plant that contains a sticky liquid that has shown clinical proof of healing skin. It has been used in the treatment of burns for over fifty years. Aloe vera also has moisturizing properties.
We will take a closer look at what Lexli calls its most-celebrated product, the AloeGlyC. This product is an exfoliant that contains aloe vera, glycolic acid and Vitamin C. It claims to aid in the removal of dead skin cells and activate the production of collagen. This will reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve the texture and clarity of the skin. Glycolic acid is frequently used in salon chemical peels and its job is to strip away the upper levels of skin cells. Many consumers find glycolic acid irritating or reactive with their skin. Lexli’s instructions to use the product once a week and build up to twice a day also suggests that this might be the case. Those with sensitive skin should be cautious.
What troubles us about the Lexli Skin Care line is that the company does not disclose their entire ingredient list. This makes it difficult for those with skin allergies and sensitivities to determine whether the Lexli products are right for them. It also makes it difficult to evaluate the quality of the ingredients in the products and how effective they might be.

The Bottom Line
Aloe vera is an ingredient found in hundreds of skin care formulations. Although it has some benefits to the skin, we like to see proven, modern ingredients like Matrixyl 3000 and hyaluronic acid in an anti-aging or anti-wrinkle product. We find it difficult to recommend the Lexli products when they provide so little information about their ingredients and do not stand behind their products with a money-back guarantee. The best skin care companies allow potential customers to see exactly what is in their products so consumers can make their own informed decisions. That does not appear to be the case with these products.
