The Rhonda Allison Company was started by professional aesthetician Rhonda Allison, who has more than 28 years of experience in skin care. Her primary interest in the field began with chemical peels, which she continues on her own skin today. It appears that many products in the Rhonda Allison line are geared to keeping skin healthy and hydrated between peel sessions. The products are separated into those used by professional aestheticians for their services and those that are designed for home use. Rhonda Allison products include cleansers, toners, hydrators, correctors, concentrates and masks among many others.
While the company website does provide complete ingredient lists and even the purpose for many of the ingredients in the formulas, we were unable to find any customer testimonials or money back guarantee offers on the website. Since these features are usually a sign of a company’s confidence in their products, we are left wondering why such features are not available with the Rhonda Allison line. We were also unable to find products specifically geared to dealing with the effects of aging on the skin. However, another retail sight that offered the Rhonda Allison products provided a package of items as an “anti-aging system”. This set included the Citrus Gel Cleanser, Purifying Lotion, Growth Factor Serum and Antioxidant Complex Serum. For the purpose of this review, we will take a closer look at these four products.
The only proven anti-aging ingredient that we could find in these products was plant hyaluronic acid, which was listed in the Antioxidant Complex Serum. Hyaluronic acid is a skin hydrator that can effectively smooth the skin’s surface and reduce the look of fine lines. However, hyaluronic acid works more effectively when it is combined with other anti-aging substances like argireline or matrixyl. Neither of these ingredients is listed in any of the Rhonda Allison products that we could find.
The primary goal of these products appears to be creating better skin health through an abundance of antioxidants and hydrating ingredients. While both of these types of ingredients contribute to improved skin health, they are not particularly effective at turning back the clock by reducing the signs of aging that have already appeared. In fact, at one point on the company website, Allison herself recommends plastic surgery for deep furrows and sagging skin. We find this to be rather drastic advice when there are many good products on the market that can effectively reduce these features.
- We found hyaluronic acid in some products.
- The company website provides plenty of good information about the products.
- None of the products appear to be specifically touted as anti-aging treatments.
- We could not find ingredients like matrixyl or argireline in any of the products in the line.
- We also did not see customer testimonials or a money back guarantee.
The Bottom Line
For better overall skin health, the Rhonda Allison line may work for you. However, if you are specifically looking for anti-aging products, there are few ingredients in these products that are effective in reducing lines and wrinkles. This means that your anti-aging budget may be better spent elsewhere.
