Complete LifeCell Review: Does LifeCell Live Up To Its Claims?
This LifeCell review has been created for those who heard of the outrageous claims of this all-in-one skin care product and who are skeptical about it. And they are right to be so. Anything that sounds too good to be true normally is. Claims of instant results and Botox replacement are bold to say the least.
Nevertheless, LifeCell has been on the market for several years now, so there must be something to it. It’s at least worth doing some research on it.
The sales page might be somewhat hyped up, but as I did some more research online I came up with some very genuine real costumer reviews.
January 27th, 2010 at 11:01 am After spending so much on every new wrinkle cream out there, FINALLY! ONE THAT WORKS!! I have only used this for 3 days (morning and night) but my skin texture is firmer, my creases around the mouth are plumped and have virtually disappeared, and my face has this youthful, glowing appearance that it hasn’t had in years (I’m a smoker). This antioxidant compound really works! No more worrying about whether to have plastic surgery…this is worth the cost. Thank you, SouthBeach…I’m a customer for life!
Truth be told, it’s not like this according to everyone.
June 10th, 2008 at 8:13 pm I have been using LifeCell for four weeks, twice a day. Truthfully, I do not see much difference in my skin at all. I have decided to keep using it for another month and see if I notice any improvement in my skin, subtle or otherwise. I am intrigued by all the positive comments and want to believe using this cream is better than any other on the market…and I have tried many. I am not looking for miracles, but I would like to see some changes in my skin tone and texture. I am 54 with a medium complexion. No major problems, just the typical signs of aging skin. I’ll give it some more time and see if I become a believer, too!
The Active ingredients in LifeCell are nothing new in the anti aging industry. Many of them are used in similar products, be it in different combinations and quantities.
To list a few:
- Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 : This ingredient mimics the “Botox effect”. It tightens and straightens the skin.
- Idebenone : This is a very powerful synthetic antioxidant that is used in the treatment of heart disease. It improves cell protection, increases overall energy levels and has anti inflammatory properties. Idebenone is non-toxic.
- Ascorbyl Palmitate : this is a form of vitamin C.
All in all it is a safe skin treatment to use, no quack ingredients and it has no toxic side effects. Okay, it’s not like Lifecell is the miracle cure to aging skin, and as I read and re-read the reviews, both positive and negative, one thing kept coming back: We are all different, with different skin, lifestyle and ,most importantly, different expectations.
Three stars for being a decent moisturizer. That’s all. Saw absolutely no difference in my skin. Purchases primarily for my eyes but used it according to directions. Nothing special and a very pricely auto ship plan.
So it’s clear LifeCell doesn’t bring the desired results to everyone, but in most cases, it did bring results!
An excellent cream that will fortify the skin’s lipid barrier and enhance its basal-area functioning via a synergistic group of antioxidants (notably Idebenone) and neurotransmitter-inhibiting peptides (AH3). However, despite its irrefutable skin-tightening, moisturization, and complexion-brightening benefits, LifeCell FAILS to deliver on its “Botox-alternative” claims — either due to inadequate peptide concentration or limited bioactives’ deep-penetration.
In conclusion, from the vantage point of ETHICAL cosmeceutical practice, there is NO Botox-alternative: there is Botox! LifeCell, notwithstanding, must be given credit as a remarkably effective anti-aging treatment that imparts visible benefits to the skin, notably skin-tightening and “glow,” and as a biomedical writer and a cosmeceuticals user, I rate it “One of the TOP 3 Brands in the [current] Anti-Aging Cosmeceutical marketplace.”
So it was clear to me that if reactions were so different, how can you decide to buy a product like this?
The only thing a producer can do to bridge this problem is to give a money back guarantee. Beware not to throw away the box, as it has to be returned in the box.
The price ($189 for a two month supply) is on the high side. Other creams that have similar workings and substances are sold for less than half the price of LifeCell. Then again, if the product lives up to its claims it might well be worth giving it a try.
I found the automatic shipping plan a bit of a rip off, since everyone has their own ways of using skin creams, some need more, some less . So I advise to take single orders, it makes no difference in the price you pay.
My Experience (better said, my wife’s experience)
The shipment arrived within two weeks, which is pretty remarkable, considering we live overseas. And of course I wanted to try some too
First impression (on a male skin): The cream does have a weird consistency, but it gets absorbed quickly by my skin. It gave a bit of a tingling sensation, but not uncomfortable. After half an hour my skin did feel tightened, a not so pleasant sensation, but it does what is says. It tightens the skin.
My wife was very pleased with it. And I too saw a difference after a week or two. Her skin was fuller and had a gentle glow. Her other creams never gave an effect like this. Her wrinkles? Still there, no botox effect. But I don’t like botox anyway.
My wife uses it once a day and after a month, the first tube is still in use, which is good news for us, bad news for LifeCell
She told me she’ll order again when she runs out and I’m okay with it, since she’s the one paying for it. But honestly, I do find she has a more radiant and full skin than before.
Who is this product not for?
When you are looking for a fountain of youth, or you want to rid yourself of intensive scars and unevenness in your skin quickly, don’t buy this product.
Fast results can only be attained with lots of make-up.
The skin is an organ that has a ‘memory’. Changes to the skin take time and consequent care. This is the only way your skin will ‘remember’ the ingredients that help rejuvenate it.
Who is this for?
Those who know that natural beauty takes time to come out and who are serious when it comes to improving the way their skin looks.
It takes time for the skin to shed off the old cells and recreate new ones that are better fed with the beneficial ingredients that render healthier and younger looking skin. And as soon as you see results, it’s easy: Stick with your program and your skin will improve.
LifeCell is expensive and I think that will be the biggest turn off for its costumers. It does improve the natural appearance and fullness of the skin, however it does not have a major effect on wrinkles. It’s worth a try and if it works a miracle that’s great.
