Victoria Principal is a former television star who segued from the television screen into the beauty industry with products aimed at diet, exercise, and makeup. She has packaged a set of skin care products that she guarantees will give skin a healthy, youthful look. This product line is aimed at women who are concerned about the effects of aging on their skin, and it actually comprises four individual components. All of them contain Argireline in one form or another. Argireline is a patented peptide complex manufactured by Lipotec for the purpose of relaxing wrinkles in the skin.
First there is the Total Facial Cleanser that exfoliates and relaxes skin while it cleans. It is a product that also removes make-up, including stubborn eye make-up. It claims to rinse cleanly and quickly from the skin. The second is the AgeBraker EyeFirmation eye serum. Like all skin serums, it is put forth as a feather-light product, lighter than moisturizing creams, that rejuvenates the skin with re-firming and contouring benefits. Besides the Argireline, it features the chemistry of beneficial teas, peptides, and antioxidants. Ms. Principal calls the third component the Revolutionary Anti-Aging Cream, to be applied every day and again at night. Its purpose is to energize and yet soften the skin. It also contains a sun protective factor (SPF 15) to keep skin healthy. The last item in the set is a boosting product that fights free radicals. The Reclaim Age Breaker Line Breaker Serum also combines the Argireline with what are identified as collagen plumping ingredients. This is another product that can be used day or night following cleansing. Regular use of the system is meant to enhance skin moisture, increase skin elasticity, exfoliate the skin, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The eye product also minimizes puffiness and crow’s feet.
This line of products is available for purchase as a set. Two bonus products come with the set at the time of this writing. One is a Reclaim Radiance Illuminating Youth Wand to be used as a highlighter and concealer, and the other is the Reclaim Age Breaker Wrinkle Retreat Firming Mask. Sample products are not available. There is a 60-day product satisfaction guarantee. The sizes of the products are undetectable on the website. The cost is $29.95 plus $5.99 shipping and handling.

The Bottom Line
Among the product descriptions is an extensive list of ingredients. It almost seems as if just about any purported anti-aging product is thrown into the mix. How well they operate together is for the buyer to experience. Only the Illuminating Youth Wand specifies the strength of the Argireline. It claims to be at 5%. It would be useful to have more knowledge of Argireline on the website. Whether or not the products are effective, the pricing does mean that women who have previously omitted a regular skin care regimen can now afford to attend to their skin. But just how effective the product is against wrinkles is yet to be seen.
