Skin Cubed, the new anti aging company proclaims that it’s more of a “cosmeceutical” rather than cosmetic company. This basically means that its products have a medicinal value. The company Skin Cubed has 3 anti-aging products:
- Age Defying Formula
- Instant Eye Repair Formula
- Instant Lift Peptide Formula
The Instant Lift was been touted as the new alternative to Botox. That is really not a surprise since many, many skin care products claim this. A closer look at the ingredients will help us to understand if there is really some meat in their claims.
The website is full of information and is user friendly. There
is a purchase option available for all the products on the website.
The cost seems to be bit high (in the range of $110-$150), which is more than most of its competitors. However, the company does tell you about how long each package will last for and they also offer a money back guarantee. This should help the customers to have some semblance of trust in the company. However, it does not provide any free samples which can’t really tell the customers how the product works without purchase.
Skin Cube website also mentions some clinical study done on the website. However, the point to note here is that the clinical study has been done on one of the constituents in the product and not on the product itself. Hence, we cannot tell the quantity, type and the concentration of product used. If all these things are different, then the study is really no use.
The Skin Cubed website has a complete, comprehensive list of ingredients mentioned on its website. This can help the customers to make sure that there are no fillers or allergens in the product.
Let’s review Instant Lift Peptide Formula which has been touted as an alternative to Botox.
The constituents of this product are:
- Water (Aqua)
- Polysorbate 20 Glycerin
- PVP Butylene Glycol
- Proplene Glycol
- Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 (Argiriline)
- Sambucus Nigra Flower Extract
- Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract
- Salix Alba (Willow Bark) Extract
- Oleth-20 Carbomer
- Fragrance (Parfum)
- Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA)
- Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract
- Panax Ginseng Extract
- Disodium EDTA
- Sodium Hyroxide
- Methyl Paraben
The noteworthy constituents are GABA and Argiriline. We love Argirline because it’s a peptide that has been clinically tested and proven. It aids in removing wrinkles by helping the underlying muscles to relax. GABA is another amino acid which restricts the Neuro transmission to the muscles and helps them to remain smooth and not
respond to stimuli, like stress, etc.
However, we would have been happier if Argiriline had been combined with the well known peptide Hyaluronic acid or Matrix 3000, which are known to enhance the collagen production in the body and rehydrate the skin as well.
- The product includes Argiriline.
- There is a money back guarantee.
- The website has the complete ingredients list.
- Does not contain Hyaluronic acid or Matrixyl 3000.
- Has allergens called parabens.
- The clinical studies do not demonstrate the effectiveness of the product.
- No free samples of the product.
The Bottom Line
Though this seems like an average product, it would have been better if Argiriline had been combined with Hyaluronic acid and Matrixyl 3000 which would have given great result to the customers.
