SkinTx is a line of pharmaceutical-grade skin care products manufactured by Vivier Pharma. SkinTx products are only available through a physician. SkinTx is based on the philosophy that there are three steps to skin restoration: skin rescue, skin rejuvenation, and skin radiance. According to the company, the length of time one spends in each phase is to be determined by the customers’ doctors or skin care professional.

SkinTx products are sold individually or in kits based on skin care regimen. None of the SkinTx products are available on the company’s official website or through online retailers. SkinTx provides a physician locater on its site so that consumers can find nearby doctors who can offer these products to the consumer. We were unable to locate any information about a manufacturer’s guarantee which would allow the consumer to purchase with confidence knowing that if the products did not live up to their hype, they could get their money back. We also did not see any references to clinical trials supporting the effectiveness of the products.

Product Details

SkinTx products suffer from the same lack of information as so many other skin care products on the market. The manufacturer has not provided a list of even the active ingredients in each formulation, much less a complete ingredient list. This is problematic for consumers for two reasons. First, it makes it difficult to assess the quality of the ingredients or whether the products contain any low-quality “fillers”. Second, those with skin allergies and sensitivities are unable to review the list and determine whether any of the ingredients may react with their skin. Those with allergies should exercise caution and speak with their doctor or dermatologist before using these products.

Some of the SkinTx products appear to be based on Vitamin C, which is a known anti-oxidant in skin care preparations. However, Vitamin C is unstable in solution and therefore, only certain formulation techniques can stabilize it. SkinTx has no information as to how the products were manufactured. Another ingredient in several of the products is hydroquinone which can lighten skin and “bleach” out dark spots. Hydroquinone is a controversial ingredient which has been banned in several countries as a carcinogen. The FDA has recommended its ban in the United States. Again, speak with your doctor before using any product with hydroquinone. There are certain ingredients we look for when seeking an effective anti-aging or anti-wrinkle skin care product. Collagen helps to replace the body’s dwindling supply and can have a dramatic impact on restoring tautness to the skin. Hyaluronic acid deeply hydrates the skin and retains water. Peptides such as Matrixyl 3000 and Argiriline stimulate the body’s production of collagen and relax facial muscles to smooth wrinkles above them. There is no indication that these ingredients are included in the SkinTx products.

The Good

  • Formulated at pharmaceutical strength
  • Full line of skin care products

The Bad

  • No full ingredient list disclosed.
  • No money-back guarantee offered.
  • May not contain clinically-proven anti-aging ingredients.
  • Some products contain hydroquinone.

The Bottom Line

The SkinTx products may appeal to some consumers as they have to purchase them directly from their physicians. However, we find that the most important determination of the effectiveness of a skin care product is its ingredients, not where it can be purchased. We were disappointed that we were not able to review an ingredient list for the SkinTx products in order to evaluate whether they might be able to provide the promised benefits. Those seeking an effective anti-wrinkle formulation may wish to continue their search for a product with proven ingredients made by a company that stands behind its products with a money-back guarantee.

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

    I have been following the instructions given to me by a very expensive “clinic” for the past 6 weeks. My skin has never looked WORSE than it does now, I have delicate, sensitive skin and a light olive complexion. My skin is now blotchy and scarred because it has burned my skin (I’m still waiting for some scabs to disappear). I followed instructions to the letter, including weekly follow-up visits – I was told repeatedly that this was “normal”…??? I have always been told how beautiful my skin is (it isn’t anymore after using this product), and I was merely trying to eliminate some hyperpigmented areas. Very disappointed. Don’t waste your money.
