SkinCeuticals is a skin care company that produces products for many skin conditions including aging, acne, rosacea and general cleansing and moisturizing. All of the SkinCeutical products can be purchased directly from the company website but they also appear to be widely available at online retailers.

SkinCeuticals Serum 20 is based on Vitamin C in the form of L-ascorbic acid. According to the website, the product neutralizes free radicals, protects the skin from further environmental damage, and helps prevent the premature signs of aging. There are many claims here and in the next section, we will take a closer look at the product to see if it might be able to deliver the promised results. SkinCeuticals Serum 20 comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee which we like to see as it allows the consumer to determine if the product contains any low-quality “fillers” or potential allergens. There is no indication that product samples or trial sizes are available.

Product Details

The SkinCeuticals Serum 20 suffers from a condition that many hundreds of other skin care products suffer from: lack of information about the product. There is no list of ingredients available on the SkinCeutical website and all we know is that it contains Vitamin C. Although Vitamin C is an important anti-oxidant, it can be unstable in solution. SkinCeuticals does not address how they have overcome this problem.

When we look for an effective anti-wrinkle or anti-aging product, we look for certain clinically-proven ingredients that we believe will provide dramatic and long-lasting results. Collagen is important to replace the body’s decreasing supply. Hyaluronic acid can hold over 1,000 times its own weight in water and can deeply hydrate the skin. Peptides like Matrixyl 3000, which penetrates the skin and reboots the body’s ability to produce its own collagen and Argiriline, which smoothes wrinkles by relaxing the underlying facial muscles, are powerful ingredients in any aging skin care regimen. There is no indication that any of these ingredients feature in the SkinCeuticals Serum 20 formulation.

The Good

  • Contains Vitamin C which can have an anti-oxidant effect on the skin.
  • Money-back guarantee offered.
  • Available directly from the manufacturer.

The Bad

  • No full list of ingredients disclosed.
  • No product samples or trial sizes available.
  • Not labeled as non-allergenic.
  • May not contain clinically-proven anti-aging ingredients.

The Bottom Line

There are literally thousands of skin care products on the market today that make similar claims to SkinCeuticals Serum 20. Most of these products do not have the advanced ingredients and expert formulations to carry out their promises. Without more information about the SkinCeuticals Serum 20 formulation, we are unable to assess whether this product will be able to provide the consumer with the desired results. The consumer may wish to continue their search for a proven effective formula backed by clinical research.

Rejuval Skin Bottle

Top Anti-Aging Cream for 2014: Rejuval Skin

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Rejuval Skin 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. Rejuval Skin contains the advanced scientifically proven ingredient Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the scientific studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Rejuval Skin is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Rejuval Skin 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

    Transparent Zinc is the #1 product in the world for preventing sun damage, not Uniprotect-PT 3 from NuScience I’ve never ever heard of it.
