Tess skincare was the brainchild of a mother, Susan Shand, who was interested in educating her teenage daughter about how to properly care for her skin. She found that there were very few products available on the market for this age group and decided to create one for herself. Shand talked to hundreds of teens and their mothers to find out exactly what needed to be included in teen skin care, and the result was the Tess skincare line. This company provides a number of skin care products designed for teens, including cleansers, toners, moisturizers, masks, sunscreens and a few cosmetics.
The Tess Skincare website is colorful, comprehensive and very easy to navigate. We are pleased to see that the company provides a complete ingredient list and useage instructions for all of the products. The products can be purchased on the Tess website, through a number of online retailers and from beauty supply and department stores. Unfortunately, we were unable to find a money back guarantee policy on the company website. The products are reasonably priced, ranging from about $14 to $20 at the time of this review.
We appreciate that the Tess skincare website provides complete ingredient lists for their product, since we believe that this information is essential for consumers to make educated decisions about their skin care. We are also pleased to see a number of natural ingredients in many of these formulas. However, we did not find and products in this skin care line that would work well for the unique needs of aging skin. The products are clearly designed for younger consumers, since they primarily address cleanliness, acne control and fresh, yummy scents.
We encourage consumers who are primarily interested in an anti-aging product to look for formulas that contain patented ingredients like argireline and matrixyl and proven substances like hyaluronic acid and collagen. These ingredients have been shown in studies to have a positive effect on aging skin including a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and improved firmness and elasticity. Although Tess skincare may have plenty to offer the younger crowd, they do not offer any of these ingredients for mature women looking to turn back the clock on their skin.
- The Tess skincare website provides customer testimonials and complete ingredient lists.
- The products are reasonably priced and available from a number of sources.
- The company does not appear to offer a money back guarantee.
- The line is primarily designed for younger skin.
- None of the formulas include any sort of proven anti-aging ingredients.
The Bottom Line
While Tess skincare might be the perfect choice for teens, it probably won’t have the ingredients necessary to address the unique needs of mature skin. We would encourage consumers to look for anti-aging products that contain ingredients proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and produce smoother, brighter skin.
