Luxiva Wrinkle Smoother is a complex moisturizer that claims to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles with its unique blend of Argireline and other peptides. It is also notable for being one of Merle Norman’s most popular products. It pairs as an anti-wrinkle agent and a moisturizer, and according to a study cited by their company, 92% of test users noticed an improvement in the moisturization of their skin after a month’s use. These tests supposedly also showed the increase of skin elasticity, reducing wrinkles and “sag” on the skin. Supposedly all of this can be obtained through Luxiva Wrinkle Smoother’s peptide Argireline, which has actually received some buzz over the years for being an intriguing anti-wrinkle agent.

Although Luxiva Wrinkle Smoother is available in most high-end boutiques, a price range could not be obtained. It is hinted that it is a “luxury” cream, and typical Merle Norman cosmetics are not cheap (it is not common to spend hundreds for a small cream, for example). Not many creams contain Argireline, though, which will be discussed in further detail.

Product Details

According to Merle Norman, its Luxiva Wrinkle Smoother cream contains Argireline, a peptide supposedly shown to smooth and reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Argireline is a synthetic peptide that demonstrates numerous benefits, including inhibiting the appearance of wrinkles. Several studies showed this ingredient decreased wrinkle depth by nearly 30% in one month. Scientists believe it causes this effect because it chemically relaxes facial muscles, much like the injection Botox. It is typically prescribed to patients who need an alternative to Botox, and is commonly used with great success. This does not mean it is free of side effects, and in fact it seems to have many, including an ironic one — skin sagging.

Nevertheless, Argireline has demonstrated wonderful results, but every positive has its negative. Some may not want to risk worsening their skin condition in order to improve it. Also, is a bit unfortunate that other ingredients included in Luxiva Wrinkle Smoother have not been revealed at this time.

The Good

  • Argireline is a patented anti-wrinkle agent with documented results, including the reduction of wrinkles.
  • Widely available in stores and online.

The Bad

  • Its main ingredient has adverse side effects, including pronounced skin sagging.
  • Other ingredients included in the Luxiva Wrinkle Smoother formula are not known.
  • Does not offer smaller samples or trial sizes for purchase.

The Bottom Line

Argireline is a powerful ingredient, and its effects on the skin are well demonstrated. Too many adverse effects might detract consumers from actually experiencing its benefits, however, and certainly no consumer wants to risk additional skin sagging in order to gain a youthful, wrinkle-free appearance. Luxiva Wrinkle Smoother is certainly not ineffective, and it may decrease the appearance of wrinkles, but chancing side effects such as skin sagging is not ideal for most consumers.
