|LUXIVA Changing Skin Treatment||
LUXIVA Changing Skin Treatment is another anti-wrinkle cream produced by Merle Norman (the company behind the LUXIVA skincare line), intended to work as a moisturizer and a serum targeting issues resulting from hormonal changes, such as skin sensitivity, skin sag, and excessive dryness. According to Merle Norman, consumers noticed a 65% increase in skin resiliency after two months of use; 39% experienced a lessened appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. LUXIVA Changing Skin Treatment is designed purely for older generations, but younger consumers will still find this product useful — it also supposedly offers numerous moisturization benefits to combat chronic dry skin. There are a plethora of ingredients that are said to target these issues, ranging from Wild Yam Extract to soothing Menthol.
Don’t expect this to be cheap, however – you’ll probably spend triple the amount on this compared to other, similar products. This is a widely available product, however, and numerous testimonials attest to its moisturization power. Some even say that it helped reduce the appearance of age spots and freckles, but its anti-wrinkle benefits have not been confirmed. The ingredients included in LUXIVA Changing Skin Treatment may work, but maybe not exactly in the way they claim.
According to Merle Norman, soy extracts and wild yam work with the skin to restore moisture and skin resiliency, allowing for a more compact and refined look. Wild Yam contains powerful antioxidants, which some suggest could eliminate free radicals in cells. When targeted towards skin cells, it might improve the look of skin. As for soy extract, numerous studies prove it does have an impact on the skin, although it does not help the skin’s resiliency. Studies state soy extract helped improve the evenness and tone after continuous use, with no side effects noted. No ingredients are listed that help improve the skin’s moisture retention ability.
- Soy extracts have proven skin-related benefits, according to numerous independent studies.
- Ingredients do not seem to promote any adverse side effects.
- Soy and Wild Yam are not expensive ingredients, yet this formulation is extremely expensive, tripling the price of other anti-wrinkle agents.
- Only offers one product. Smaller sample sizes would probably interest undecided consumers.
- Contains no ingredients which provide any noticeable moisturizing benefits.
The Bottom Line
LUXIVA Changing Skin Treatment delivers on a few good points – namely, scientific proof its ingredients may improve the feel of skin in a safe, natural manner. This appears to be a well thought out product. This still does not excuse the price, and consumers may not be willing to spend money on a product with only a few noted benefits. It should not be completely ineffective, but the price is a big issue, and there are numerous creams that offer similar benefits for less.
