Skin care companies have many different approaches to anti-aging and anti-wrinkle effects. Anti-aging products include injectible substances, ingestible supplements, topical creams and serums, and mechanical devices. Skinjoy is in the latter category. Skinjoy, made by Sonic Tech Co. in Korea, is a facial massager that its manufacturer states will reduce wrinkles and freckles, help absorb cosmetics evenly, and slow skin aging. We were unable to find an explanation as to how this device would produce these results.
We were not able to locate an official website for Skinjoy but were able to find it for sale at several online retailers. Because the manufacturer does not appear to sell this product directly, there is no money-back guarantee offered. Money-back guarantees reassure the consumer that they can return the product if they find that it doesn’t work as promised. There also does not appear to be any clinical testing on the product supporting its claimed benefits.
Skinjoy is to be used for only 5-10 minutes at a time but the online retailers’ websites do not outline how often. There may possibly some increase in blood circulation due to the massaging action of Skinjoy, but there appears to be no independent information as to how this product could remove wrinkles.
For reducing and eliminating wrinkles, we feel that topical applications with certain clinically-proven ingredients are the most effective and economical way to have drastic and long-lasting results. Hyaluronic acid is an ingredient we like to see as it can deeply penetrate and hydrate the skin. Collagen is a substance that is produced naturally in our body, but the body’s ability to produce it diminishes as we age. Replacing it helps to firm and tighten skin. Peptides like Matrixyl 3000 and Argiriline are newer additions to the anti-wrinkle fight but have been proven to stimulate collagen production and smooth wrinkles.

The Bottom Line
Skinjoy does not appear to have any relevant benefits in the fight against aging skin and we believe it is a waste of money. Most consumers have a limited budget for skin care products and want to make sure that the product they choose is going to work. We checked out some independent customer reviews of this product and most were negative. Ultimately, there is no short cut to rejuvenating skin. Skin has to be replenished with the nutrients it has lost over time and protected from environmental damage. Consumers looking for help for aging skin may wish to research topical applications that include clinically-proven ingredients and not waste their time and energy on this gimmick.
