Onsen Review

Overview

The Onsen Spas in Japan are said to contain many healing and soothing which is what the Onsen line of skin care products are based on. The company manufactures products for the face and eyes and all are intended for daily use. A few of the products were formulated to address the problem of aging of the skin. One of them is Onsen’s Age Defying Face Cream. The product promises to defy the aging process by combining science and nature to formulate a blend of peptides, minerals, vitamins and other anti-oxidants.

Product Details

The premise behind the Onsen products is that they contain the same healing and restorative minerals from the Onsen hot springs in Japan. People flock to hot springs located all over the world supposedly for their ability to rejuvenate the body as well as help with skin conditions. This practice is as old as time and it is no wonder that the skin care companies have begun to use this tactic to attract buyers to their products. Onsen Age Defying Face Cream promises to help skin irritation, relive dry skin and restore and prevent sagging. Although there is no clinical research to prove that the water or mud from these hot springs actually work, the official Onsen website backs up their skin care products with a money back guarantee which many skin care companies fail to provide. Many of the products in the line contain the same basic ingredients such as minerals, peptides, vitamins A and C, Red Algae Extract, Retinol and Thalassine which is a marine extract said to help fight aging of the skin. No advanced ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Matrixyl 3000 or Real Collagen are mentioned on the website. We could not locate any clinical research, before and after photos or customer testimonials on the site as well.

The Good

  • Onsen Age Defying Face Cream contains Vitamins A and C which may offer some antioxidant benefits.
  • The products can be purchased from the official Onsen website.

The Bad

  • Onsen Age Defying Face Cream does not any contain advanced ingredients.
  • The official website for the product does not have any clinical research associated with the products.
  • There are no customer testimonials and no before and after photos on the website.

The Bottom Line

The fact that the Onsen skin care products claims to be formulated with the so called healing powers of the Onsen hot springs in Japan may get the attention of buyers who typically fall for such hype. Products which boast that there products contain all natural ingredients are hot sellers these days. Let’s face it, no body wants to put chemicals on their skin however there simply is no proof that suggests that mud or mineral waters that supposedly come from volcanoes offer any anti-aging benefits. For $65, we could buy an anti-aging skin care product that actually has been proven to provide great results. Which one will you choose?
