Tracie Martyn is a make-up artist who has worked in the fashion industry since the early 1980′s. She has worked with some of the most well known photographers in the world and some of her work has been featured in publications such as Vanity Fair and Vogue. Tracie Martyn has used her knowledge of the cosmetics field to create a treatment called Resculpting Facial. She uses a combination of holistic ingredients as well as yoga and massage in her treatments.
Tracie Martyn has an upscale salon on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan where customers can go to receive treatments, but there is also a line of skin care products available for purchase from the official website. Tracie Martyn products are endorsed by many celebrities such as Susan Sarandon, Cyndi Lauper, and Renee Zellweger.
On the official Tracie Martyn website you will find only four products. Three are facial products and they are the Firming Serum, Amla Purifying Cleanser, and Enzyme Exfoliant. There is one body care product called Shakti Resculpting Body Lotion as well.
The most popular anti-aging product available from Tracie Martyn is the Firming Serum. This product claims to contain botanicals, anti-oxidants, vitamins, and “rejuvenating epidermal growth factors” that may counteract skin thinning due to aging and factors such as everyday environmental exposure.
The exact ingredients are not listed on the official website and if you contact the manufacturer, they send you this vague list of ingredients: Superior Antioxidant Synergy Complex (SOD, Tocopherol, European Wild Blueberry), Anti-aging peptide, Regenerative Epidermal Growth Factors(repair thinning, aging skin while boosting collagen and elastin production). Patented Glycosaminoglycans(reduce moisture loss, stop the breakdown of collagen by inhibiting MMP enzymes, strengthen and firm the skin), Skin-compatible moisturizing agents(Hyaluronic, Squalane and Ceramides) High-tech delivery system, NO Propylene(Butylene, etc.) Glycol, NO Parabens, NO Animal Testing.

The Bottom Line
Tracie Martyn products are fairly expensive and the mixed reviews around the Internet may make you think twice about purchasing these products. The ingredients are not posted in detail so we aren’t exactly sure what the products contain. We recommend sticking with an anti-aging product that not only posts all of the ingredients but contains some well known and proven cutting-edge wrinkle fighters.
