Tru Face Essence claims to be a scientifically-formulated serum that helps firm loose skin, defining face contours and preventing skin sag as a result of age. For most consumers the only proven way to prevent skin sag is by having plastic surgery, but Tru Face Essence says they can provide the same benefits. Sound too good to be true? Perhaps it is, but with publically published data surrounding Tru Face’s chemical composition (how Tru Face Essence was tested for its supposed benefits) and numerous citations in popular Asian magazines such as Casa Living, this serum certainly beats its competitors in terms of popularity and scientific backing. Tru Face Essence gained even more attention over the use of one ingredient, Ethocyn, which Tru Face claims improve the skin’s elasticity.

Popularity certainly does suggest Tru Face Essence isn’t your typical serum — not many serums have gained quite the attention that Tru Face has — and it’s clear consumers definitely want to find out more about this product. With worldwide availability Tru Face Essence appeals to many consumers, and despite the price (Tru Face Essence sells for $140.60 on their U.S. affiliate), this is ranked highly in Asian markets. The real question is how their three main ingredients work together, which is something they conveniently do not discuss on their website.

Product Details

According to Nu Skin (their manufacturer), Tru Face Essence contains Cyclomethicone, Dimethiconol, Ethoxyheptyl Bicyclooctanone (Ethocyn), Squalane, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl, Linoleate, Dimethicone, and Zea Mays (Corn) Oil. Most consumers probably recognize one of their lesser ingredients, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, as the alternative name for Green Tea. Over the years numerous studies have proved its benefits for the body, but only a few benefits point to skin improvements. One study discovered consuming Green Tea boosted the body’s ability to reduce sun-related skin damage (Green Tea acted as an invisible sunscreen). Its effects on aging skin are not known at this time, however, and studies looking into this theory have not revealed any noticeable differences. It is believed the antioxidants in Green Tea play a critical role in reversing skin damage, but this cannot be concluded by any study. This ingredient is probably the most credible (and useful) ingredient used in Tru Face Essence.

Concerning Ethnocyn: it is stated this is a main ingredient that helps eliminate wrinkles, but independent studies question the legitimacy of these claims. The manufacturers of this synthetic compound claim Ethnocyn blocks hormone receptors on the surface of the skin. It is not really clear what this has to do with eliminating wrinkles. Their company provides a study which states it helped eliminate wrinkles, but it does not look very credible and lacks further information about why blocking hormone receptors would reverse signs of aging.

The Good

  • Green Tea Extract contains numerous antioxidants which are shown to protect against sun-related skin damage.
  • Cited as a remarkable anti-aging serum by popular Korean magazines.

The Bad

  • Does not contain any ingredients which prevent skin sag.
  • Its main ingredient is questioned by numerous sources as not legitimate.
  • Not an affordable product.

The Bottom Line

The use of antioxidant-rich ingredients is quickly becoming popularized, but it is important to note that these ingredients have not had enough testing for its supposed benefits on the skin. While some ingredients may provide temporary benefits, the long term effects of Tru Face Essence are questionable. It has been featured in several magazines because it contains some benefits, however, and may be ideal for those looking for a new product to try out.
