DISTINCTION® Face Lift Kit



DISTINCTION® Face Lift Kit Review Summary



The Non-Surgical Face Lift Kit is one of the many anti-aging products under the DISTINCTION® label. This product is said to put together five of DISTINCTION®’s most effect products to reduce wrinkles and generate younger looking skin instantly. This is quite a big promise, and we wonder if this company is able to deliver such results.

Many women prefer when an anti-aging cream delivers results on its own. Not only is it more convenient and affordable to use a single product, but we have more trust in a company that puts their efforts behind just one anti-aging cream. Regardless, we will examine this product’s formula closer to determine what type of skincare benefits it may provide.


Ingredients at a Glance
As mentioned, within this kit are five separate DISTINCTION® products, all of which are also sold separately. This kit now includes Mask Powder, Mask Activator, Firmalift, Skin Renewal Booster and Face Lift Brush.

The main product in this kit is Firmalift, which is said to “smooth away the appearance of aging.” This product contains the following ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Butylene Glycol, Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola) Extract, Echinacea Purpurea Extract, Aspalathus Linearis Extract, Glycereth-26, Sodium Hyaluronate, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Extract, Hydrolyzed Elastin, Soluble Collagen, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Silk Amino Acids, Tocopheryl Acetate, Retinyl Palmitate, Panthenol, Sodium PCA, Allantoin, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Oil, Geranium Maculatum Oil, Salvia Sclarea (Clary) Oil, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil, Triethanolamine, Polysorbate-20, Disodium EDTA, Carbomer, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Phenoxyethanol, Yellow 5 and Red 40.


Ingredients in Focus
This product contains a rather high amount of ingredients, which may hinder its overall potency. Unfortunately, it seems this manufacturer does not include some of the most advanced anti-aging ingredients currently on the market. Some of these include the patented Matrixyl 3000® and Argireline®. They are known to promote the production of Collagen and reverse and prevent wrinkles, respectively. Another ingredient worth considering in any skin care formula is Hyaluronic Acid, proven to retain water and increase the smoothness and elasticity of the skin.

However, we are pleased to see that this product contains Collagen, which is the most abundant form of protein found in the skin. Unfortunately, as we age, Collagen levels decline, and skin loses its supple firmness. Collaged-based creams are supposed to lend the skin this decreasing factor, and may enhance the overall appearance of skin. However, there are different types and qualities of Collagen, and this formula does not indicate if their product is low-grade or synthetic.


Website
This product is featured on the website, but unfortunately, does not have its own site. However, the manufacturer provides a product description and even the complete ingredient lists for each product in the kit. Though, we find there is no cited research to verify that the “instant” results purportedly generated by this product will occur.

We wish to note that this kit and other DISTINCTION® products have appeared on a popular website that aims to expose ineffective diet, beauty and health products and programs. This website alleges that DISTINCTION® over-advertises the abilities of their products.

Final Thoughts
There is no doubt that many women may be intrigued by this promise. Who wouldn’t wish to buy a kit that instantly reduces lines and wrinkles? As a kit, this product sells for just under $60, but all of the products may also be purchased separately on the company website.

Unfortunately, we find the company provides no evidence to support these rather large claims, and after reviewing the ingredients used in this kit, we find it very unlikely that a dramatic reduction in facial lines and creases will occur. In fact, we do not believe the formula offers a powerful component to combat wrinkles. Many women may be more pleased with the results of a product that contains the ingredient, Matrixyl 3000®, which is said to combat wrinkles from a sub-dermal level.
