The official website for Pharmagel products claims that the use of their “pharmaceutical grade ingredients might possibly be the greatest scientific innovation for skin treatment in the past decade”. Pharmagel has been in business since 1987 and they state that their “super performing” skin care products are used by celebrities, dignitaries, and people all over the world. Pharmagel offers a full line of skin care products, including a line of anti-aging products that includes cleansers, toners, eye treatments, moisturizers, scrubs, masques, and anti-aging & specialty ‘treatments’.

Product Details

The active ingredient in the Pharmagel’s anti-aging treatments is Retinol-A. Retinol-A has been used for many years to improve the appearance of the skin, both for wrinkles and for acne. Pharmagel states that “Retinol-A is a primary antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals” among many other benefits. Pharmagel also uses Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and Collagen in its anti-aging product formulas. These are three powerful ingredients that have been proven effective in many anti-wrinkle products on the market today.

The Good

  • Pharmagel products use ingredients such as Retinol-A, Hyaluronic Acid, and Collagen that have been proven in clinical studies to produce effective results on wrinkles.
  • The company has been in business for over two decades and has a good online presence with an informative and user-friendly website to learn about its products.
  • Pharmagel products are reasonably priced in comparison to other anti-aging products on the market with similar active ingredients.

The Bad

  • The Pharmagel product website does not list customer testimonials or before & after photos to demonstrate product effectiveness.
  • Pharmagel does not offer a money back guarantee if the products do not prove to be effective.
  • Pharmagel does not provide any information related to clinical studies of its products.

The Bottom Line

The bottom line is that Pharmagel does use some good ingredients in its anti-aging products. The products are not overly expensive, so they could be worth trying. It would be better if Pharmagel offered a money back guarantee or even a free product sample. Pharmagel should also take the time to put customer testimonials and before and after photos on its website so that consumers can get a better idea of how well the products work. The official Pharmagel website is very easy to navigate through its categories and pages and also provides a lot of good information about its products and how each ingredient works. Pharmagel products have mixed reviews on various online sources, so it seems the products do work for some people but not as well for other consumers. Based on the active ingredients however, Pharmagel products are not the worst thing out there in the anti-wrinkle and anti-aging skin care industry.

Rejuval Skin Bottle

Top Anti-Aging Cream for 2015: Rejuval Skin

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Rejuval Skin is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. Rejuval Skin contains the advanced scientifically proven ingredient Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the scientific studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Rejuval Skin is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Rejuval Skin Go


(Optional- For Enhanced Results): Vivexin

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go

    Beth i very much doubt Pharmagel would have a product for the eye area if it was not safe to use, they have been trading for over two decades. Retinol in their eye creams will be a very minor concentrate, eye creams/gels are made specifically to brighten/reduce fatique, so you will find many of them have Reatinol/ or other types of gentle exfoliators in them.

    I have been using Pharmagel products for 2 years and will be 48 years old this month. I am consistently being told that I don’t look anywhere close to my age. I give 100% credit to Pharmagel.

    Beth, you may not be using the Pharmagel anymore, I see that your comment is from 2011.. Even if you’ve changed brands, be careful about putting products around your eyes if they are not specifically for your eyes. I only say this because you are right about the skin around the eyes being much more delicate than the rest of the face. Most facial products have ingredients that can do damage to the thin layer of skin around your eyes, as well as work their way into your eyes…I can honestly say it burns like Hades. If you haven’t yet, go ahead and invest in a good eye cream, they are safe and many are tailored to your specific needs. If you do see this comment, I hope it helps in some way. good luck!
