The founder of the Marilyn Miglin line of skin care products, Marilyn Miglin, has drawn on almost forty years of experience in the beauty industry to create her line. This formal model is currently offering her line both through her official site and through HSN. She’s known primarily for her pheromone perfumes, but the skin care line is growing in popularity steadily, and HSN customers are offering impressive testimonials to its effectiveness.
Unlike most other lines of skin care products, Marilyn Miglin’s focus is on the combination of natural materials and vitamin C. These products come with impressive claims, including the statement that they’ll take care of imperfections and wrinkles instantly, and that the vitamins used will result in soft, smooth skin. This line also comes with a hefty price tag at about thirty to fifty dollars per bottle. However, the popularity of these products attests to the fact that most customers aren’t worried about it.
However, like many other products sold by HSN, these skin care products may not perform exactly as claimed. It looks like Marilyn Miglin may also suffer from the inability to back up claims, just like a lot of other mail order offers.
Fortunately for buyers, a generous money-back guarantee is available. Smaller samples may also be available, depending on where you’re shopping.
A browse through the product line available from Marilyn Miglin will turn up one common factor – vitamin C. It’s claimed that this vitamin works equally to cure all problems on all skin types, with a result that’s supple, soft, and younger in appearance and feel. Fine lines and wrinkles are said to be eliminated on application, though there’s no information about the source of this data. Published studies and other scientific sources suggest that this may not be the case.
Vitamin C does have the ability to work against fine lines and wrinkles when used in the correct form, but a topical cream has not been proven to work. Several studies suggest that vitamin C actually loses potency on exposure to air, making it best when ingested. Air exposure causes this vitamin to lose its power to fight against wrinkles, and instead of being beneficial, it can actually cause harm. That’s because oxidized vitamin C increases incidences of free radicals. These particles cause cell damage and aging, actually increasing skin problems. However, not everything about the product is bad – there are plenty of other vitamins, like vitamin E, that work very well as a topical application.
- Marilyn Miglin products contain Vitamin E.
- Testimonials for these products say that they really do a good job at eliminating wrinkles.
- Contents include oxidized vitamin C, which is a possible danger.
- Products are relatively expensive.
- No products are offered for men.
The Bottom Line
The emphasis these products give to vitamins is a refreshing one, but unfortunately, this line is emphasizing the wrong ones. Marilyn Miglin’s products definitely have the potential to improve skin health and youthful appearance, and consumers certainly shouldn’t rule them out. However, a formulation containing ingredients proven to be effective in topical use would be more helpful.
