Skincerity Review Summary



Skincerity® is billed as “the next generation in skin care.” The company website claims that a university clinical trial showed that in a 90 day study, 67% of patients using Skincerity® experienced an average reduction in the appearance of wrinkles by 39%. However, evidence backing these claims is not provided at the time of this review. We would have like to see a link to the clinical trial to prove this claim.

Our extensive research on anti-wrinkle formulas indicate that only few products contain genuinely efficient ingredients backed by years of scientific research and consumer testimonials. We believe that when it comes to reducing the visible signs of aging, there may be better ingredients out there than what is included in Skincerity®. Therefore, we will take a look at Skincerity® to conclude whether the industry already has some other effective alternative products.


Ingredients at a Glance
Unfortunately, the official Skincerity® website fails to list the ingredients for the product. It is only mentions that the product is a result of the company’s founder and CEO Phyllis Siegel’s desire to look younger. The company specifically claims that the “science” behind the formula is a patented technology. However, we believe the website does a poor job of explaining what this technology really is and how different it is from other “technologies” touted by many mediocre products.


Ingredients in Focus
Without a specific list of key ingredients at hand, it may not be meaningful to analyze these vague claims. However, it is said that the product is to be applied nightly and forms “an invisible, breathable barrier that retains the body’s moisture, beautifully hydrating the skin while simultaneously delivering the proven and powerful anti-aging/antioxidant Vitamin E.”

Vitamin E may be found in a number of different products, ranging from energy drinks and supplements to daily multivitamin tablets. It is also commonly used in cosmetic products such as skin creams and anti-aging creams. It is widely believed that the acetate plays a role in slowly hydrolyzing the skin once it gets absorbed. This phenomenon has been claimed to protect against sun’s ultraviolet rays. However, there may be scant evidence that it may really reduce wrinkle formation.


Website
There is an official and exclusive Skincerity® website, as mentioned above. This clearly works in favor of the product; however, we believe a quality anti-wrinkle formula should also be backed by numerous and positive testimonials. At this time, the website does list some testimonials; however, about half of them seem to be from customers from Texas, which is interesting as the clinical trial cited in the website is purportedly from Texas Health Sciences Center in San Antonio. Also, the website fails to post before and after pictures at this time.


Positives
• Is a topical application supplying Vitamin E
• May have some moisturizing benefits
• Marketed through exclusive website



Final Thoughts
We believe a trustworthy manufacturer always goes the extra mile to ensure great customer service through the proper dissemination of information. In these regards, Skincerity® fails to be attractive, notwithstanding the grand claims made through the product website. Therefore, we believe an alternative may be to look up and research on other topical creams.

The best way to go about choosing a product may be to first look at the ingredients. Second, potential customers may wish to look at the prices and whether any complimentary gifts like popular magazine subscriptions are being offered with purchase. Third, testimonials and effective media coverage on a product may be a good way to gauge a product’s effectiveness. Fourth, those with free trial periods may be a really good offer; we highly encourage our readers to try such a product first. A free trial allows consumers to try a product without purchasing an entire supply—a great benefit.
