SkinPrep Fx is a serum-like product manufactured by Cover Fx, a cosmetics company specializing in corrective makeup. SkinPrep Fx has a dual purpose according to the company: soothing the skin and perfecting the skin’s texture to make it ready for foundation application. SkinPrep Fx is touted as being safe for sensitive skins. It is oil-free, fragrance-free, and does not clog pores.

SkinPrep Fx does not have its own page on the Cover Fx website, just a listing and a button that takes the customer to a third-party retailer to purchase. The product does appear to be readily available at several online merchants however. We were not able to find any indication of a manufacturer’s guarantee, so those who purchase SkinPrep Fx may not be able to get their money back if the product does not work as promised or if it triggers an allergic reaction.

Product Details

SkinPrep Fx contains no less than 31 ingredients. Some consumers may think that the more ingredients there are in a skin care product, the more likely it is to work, however, frequently, the opposite is true. The best skin care companies select fewer ingredients at the ideal concentrations and ensure that the product is expertly formulated to provide dramatic and long-lasting results.

A few of the ingredients in SkinPrep Fx stand out to us as providing the best benefits. Palmitoyl oligopeptide is also known as Matrixyl. It is a peptide that has been clinically proven to penetrate the skin deeply and reboot the body’s ability to produce collagen and elastin which firms up aging skin. Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 (also known as Matrixyl 3000) is an ingredient we always look for in effective anti-aging and anti-wrinkle formulations for its ability to induce collagen production and firm and tighten sagging skin. Sodium hyaluronate is also known as hyaluronic acid which can hold over 1,000 times its own weight in water and is known for deeply hydrating the skin.

While we are fans of these active ingredients, we prefer them to be teamed up with Argiriline, another peptide which relaxes facial muscles and smoothes the wrinkles that form because of them. Also, Matrixyl and Matrixyl 3000 are listed as the last two ingredients in the formulation which could mean that they may not be of high enough strength to be effective.

The Good

  • Contains Matrixyl 3000 and hyaluronic acid.
  • Widely available through online retailers.

The Bad

  • No money-back guarantee available
  • Concentrations of active ingredients may not be high enough to provide promised results
  • Not labeled as non-allergenic
  • Focused on being a primer for makeup

The Bottom Line

There is much to peak our interest in SkinPrep Fx. It contains some of the active ingredients we look for in an effective topical anti-wrinkle application. However, it is also missing some key ingredients and the concentrations of those it does contain may or may not be high enough to make a difference. The best skin care companies include the highest-quality ingredients that can make the largest impact then back up the product with a money-back guarantee. Although you could do worse than purchase SkinPrep Fx, we also feel that you can do better.

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
