Skincerity is a roll-on serum-like product that is to be applied at night to the hands and face. According to the company’s website, Skincerity provides a breathable barrier on the surface of the skin to allow oxygen to pass through but trap moisture and anti-oxidants in. The Skincerity website contains infomercials, customer testimonials and before and after pictures. The website also refers to a clinical study performed on the product at the University of Texas but does not provide enough information to be able to determine the validity of the study.
<,p>Skincerity provides a 30-day money-back guarantee which we always like to see in order for the customer to order with confidence knowing that they can return the product if it doesn’t work for them or if it triggers allergies. Skincerity can be purchased directly from the company website and retails for $29.95 at the time of this review.
The most frustrating aspect of Skincerity is that they do not disclose even a list of their key ingredients, much less a full ingredient list. We feel that it is important for consumers to be able to review the ingredients in a skin care product to know if they contain any low-quality “fillers” or potential allergens.
The only thing we know about Skincerity is that it contains Vitamin E which has been proven to have some beneficial effects on the skin but there is no available research to show that it can reduce wrinkles. When we look for an effective anti-aging or anti-wrinkle product, we find that certain clinically-proven ingredients really stand out and are the most able to provide dramatic and long-lasting results. Collagen replenishes the body’s dwindling stores of this natural substance and helps return elasticity and firmness to sagging skin. Hyaluronic acid can hold over 1,000 times its own weight in water and deeply hydrates the skin. Peptides like Matrixyl 3000 and Argiriline can have an impact on reducing the appearance and depth of wrinkles and rebooting the skin’s ability to produce collagen. There is no indication that any of these ingredients are included in the Skincerity formulation.

The Bottom Line
With the thousands of skin care products on the market today, we find it difficult to recommend one that provides so little information and does not disclose its ingredients. Those who have skin allergies or sensitivities may wish to exercise caution before using this product. We suggest that consumers research other anti-aging formulations that contain ingredients like collagen and hyaluronic acid and give this one a pass.
