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.

Product Details

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 Good

  • Can purchase directly from manufacturer’s website.
  • Money-back guarantee offered.

The Bad

  • No full ingredient list provided
  • May not contain clinically-proven ingredients
  • No details are provided on clinical trials
  • Not labeled as non-allergenic

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.

Nue Science Bottle

Top Wrinkle Cream for 2014: Revivasol

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Revivasol 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. By recommending lifestyle changes like diet and exercise, Revivasol has firmly placed their customers health first. We never see skin care companies doing this sort of marketing. In addition, scientifically-proven results on how the formula works says it all, and the Revivasol website provides ample proof. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the clinical studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Revivasol is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Revivasol Go



Vivexin

(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

    is it safe to use while pregnaut??

    [Reply]

    Sarah Reply:

    Yes! It is even safe on babies (one week old) to 91 years of age. It is also safe on pets (That is why it has been FDA approved). In addition the acetone is a medical grade acetone and evaporates within 3-5seconds not leaving any trace behind except for creating a bonded masque with tiny micropores. It is chemistry at it’s finest!

    Richard Reply:

    Sarah, you are incorrect. This product has NOT been FDA approved. Acetone and Polymers are not approved for use on babies under 2 years or on pregnant women. Please do not spread misinformation about potentially dangerous products.

    Worst thing I have ever used on my skin

    Broke it down and hydrated it to the point it became photosensitive

    The smell from the roll on applicator nearly sufficated me and gave me heartburn

    The advice I was given was to keep on using it

    After six days I had to stop I am now trying to repair the damage and its proving very difficult

    I would never reccommend this product skincerity

    In some rare cases Skincerity may not work well, but for the vast majority it works just as advertised… it locks in your natural moisture while allowing your skin to breath and then sheds away when your skin is sufficiently hydrated. That being said, you should not have been advised to continue using it.

    The thing you have to remember with the product is that whatever you put underneath the mask will work 40% more or 4x harder. So if you were using a harsh toner or a moisturizer or cleanser that has some time of acne medication in it, then your skin will most likely dry out because you are putting ingredients that are meant to dry out the acne on your skin and the mask amplifies that.

    Masque ingredients
    Skin-coating polymers create a thin, flexible Breathable Barrier®. This breathable masque works for hours and functions much like your own skin.
    Acetone serves multiple activating functions.
    • Flash dries off the skin in 2-3 seconds to turn the liquid into a dry, skin barrier • Flashdriestocreatemicroscopic“skinhealthy”breathingpores
    • Deep cleans the skin on contact and keeps bacteria out of the bottle
    Absorbed ingredients
    Vitamin E is a powerful nutrient that augments your favorite products. This vitamin is also helpful for users that apply Skincerity alone.
    Vitis Vinifera (grape seed oil) is a powerful nutrient known to relieve stressed tissues and enhance skin moisturization. Vitis Vinifera contains proanthocyanidins, which are very helpful in diminishing the sun’s drying effects and lessening free radical damage.
    Your natural moisture. The breathable masque makes your own natural moisture the key ingredient. It actually turns your moisture into an active agent that intensely smoothes and softens dry, aging skin.

    Does anyone else hate the feel of it on your face and find it keeps them from a good night sleep?

    I have been using Skincerity for four weeks now, just about to star my 2nd bottle & I love it. I have large pores, oily skin, acne, scars from mole removal, uneven skin tone and lots of brown spots (ya, bad skin). I have tried everything. Nothing works. To tell you the truth, Skincerity doesn’t work on my skin. I took before & after photos and still look the same. Fine lines around my eyes, acne around my chin, upper lip & cheeks, no lightning of brow spots, scars still look the same, no chage at all. Ya the smell is bad & I have to close my eyes when I put it on but I still love this product. I love it because it makes my skin feel tight & clean at nights when it’s on. Plus its fun washing it off in the morning haha these are the only 2 reasons I use it every night & will continue to use it. I already have my 2nd bottle :)

    I’m on my second bottle and I love this product and will never using it! I gained 50lbs when pregnant and have terrible stretch marks and “wrinkly” skin around my belly button. Since using it it’s tightened my skin and my stretch marks are no longer that purple color. I’m very confident that it will continue to tighten. I also use skincerity on my face. Also during my pregnancy I ended up with Rosecea, I had very red cheecks and nose, within a week I could notice my skin going back to its once original color! I love this product. Yes it stinks, and it’s a bit pricey, but I can’t put a price tage on having nice skin!

    Not FDA approved- it doesn’t have to be-like all skin care products -they are not drugs or food so no need for approval. Semantics yes as this products has had some testing- but to be clear- not FDA approved- nor required to be unless you are sprinking it on your cereal to keep your heart young. ;)

    Skincerity does contain Acetone, but it’s a medical grade (Not the acetone found in nailpolish removers)The reason it is a main ingredient is to help kill any harmful bacteria on your skin (Anything under the masque is amplified) as well as in the roller bottle. It helps to create micro pores on the masque itself to let your skin breathe, while still retaining it’s natural moisture. You have to be careful with what you use underneath it, I personally don’t use anything under it and it works amazingly as is. You probably won’t notice results right away, as your skin regenerates every 30-40 days. It is a breakthrough “medical technology” that absolutely cannot be replicated. It is safe on all skin types, as well as on children, and can be used for numerous skin ailments. That being said not everyone will love it, to each their own. Feel free to ask any questions as I work for NuCerity.

    The only thing I find is that when someone makes a negative comment all these people selling the product spam the original comment. The product is not FDA Approved nor is it approved by health Canada (I called) and the amount of acetone is nowhere to be found (please enlighten me if you know, I’ve been going through Google pages and the nucerity site. I don’t don’t know if you are also aware that the product contains Teflon basically the same product most frying pans contain. Grape seed oil and vitamin E are known to be great for you skin, I suggest if you want something that amazing and more natural that you make your own soap. A great recipe would contain Papaya, Grape seed oil and a small amount of vitamin E, now this cleared my acne. This product made my skin dry (did not apply anything underneath) and the smell made me sick. Not only did it dry my skin but my eczema came back in full force.

    In my opinion Skincerity is a product used so that the company doesn’t fall under the illegal status of a Pyramid Schemem, do your research. Ask the people who sell it how many people are above him and below him and the cost to join.
