|Linda Sy Anti-Aging||
The Linda Sy Anti-Aging line is a group of skin care products developed by Dr. Linda Sy, a dermatologist. Linda Sy also makes products for rosacea, acne, dry skin, and brown spots as well as makeup and sunscreen products. The Linda Sy Anti-Aging line includes: Eye Firming Gel, Facial Lotion With 10% Lactic Acid, Green Cream Retinol Treatment (in 3 concentrations), Moisturizing Oil For Face and Body, Optimal Moisturizing Sun Screen Lotion, Vita-Oil For Delicate Skin, Souffle Cream, Essential Cream, and Recreational Sunscreen. With so many products in the Linda Sy Anti-Aging line, the consumer may be confused as to which product is right for their anti-aging needs.
All of the Linda Sy Anti-Aging products can be purchased directly from the company’s website. The company offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, which we like to see, and the website offers trial sizes of its products for sale, but it does not appear to have free samples available.
The Linda Sy Anti-Aging products are labeled hypoallergenic but, in looking closer at the ingredients, we wonder how they can claim that. Many of the Linda Sy products contain parabens, which are cosmetic preservatives that are also known allergens. Many higher-quality skin care preparations exclude these ingredients for that reason. Some of the Linda Sy Anti-Aging products may also contain synthetic colorings like FD&C Yellow 5, Red 40, and Blue 1. These may also trigger allergies. Consumers with skin allergies or sensitivities may wish to review the ingredient listings with their doctor or dermatologist prior to trying these products.
Let’s take a closer look at the Linda Sy Eye Firming Gel to see if it contains ingredients which might be effective at tightening the delicate skin under the eyes. A few ingredients stand out to us. Hesperidin methyl chalcone is a flavinoid that assists in preventing the tiny blood vessels under the eyes from leaking. This leakage is what causes dark circles under the eyes. The Eye Firming Gel also contains two different peptides, ingredients that deeply penetrate the skin and are known for firming and rejuvenating the skin. The two peptides we like to see in a formulation are Matrixyl 3000 and Argiriline which have been clinically-proven to provide dramatic results. There is no indication that these two ingredients are included in the Linda Sy formulation.
- Some products contain clinically-proven anti-aging and rejuvenating ingredients.
- Products are available for purchase directly from the manufacturer.
- Some products contain known allergens.
- No free samples are available.
- No links on company website to clinical trials supporting the effectiveness of the products.
The Bottom Line
We do like some of the ingredients included in the Linda Sy Anti-Aging formulations, especially the peptides. We also like that the company stands behind its products with a satisfaction guarantee in case you are unhappy with the product. It appears that some of this line of products may be able to deliver the results promised. However, the fact that these products do not appear to be fully tested and that they contain known allergens in a hypoallergenic formula give us pause for concern. There are other products on the market today that contain proven ingredients like Matrixyl 3000 and Argiriline and that have been fully tested and proven effective. Consumers may wish to investigate these options before settling on this treatment.
