One thing certain about LifeCell is that it has quite a list of clinically proven anti-aging ingredients. Let’s take a look at the main ones:
Dithiolane-3-Pentoic Acid or D3PA
This ingredient is a powerful universal antioxidant, which means it protects the skin from pollutants and free radicals which decrease the skin’s collagen supply. More importantly, it is said to boost the natural levels of Vitamins C and E, as well as glutathione, in the body while boosting cell metabolism and stimulating the skin to produce Nitric Oxide. Recently, Nitric Oxide has been proven to dilate capillaries, which in turn, promotes the better transport of rich nutrients to the skin so it can repair damaged skin cells faster and more effectively.
Ubiquinone which is also known by several other names like Coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10 and ubidecarenone, is another potent antioxidant. In fact, some studies show that it may even help prevent cancer. When applied to the skin, it improves the production of collagen and elastin, the two important proteins needed to prevent skin dryness and wrinkle formation, and has also been proven to treat sun-damaged skin.
Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 or Argireline
This wrinkle cream ingredient is known as the topical alternative to the popular cosmetic procedure, Botox, mainly because Argireline works in the same way as Botulinum Toxin A. Indeed, just like Botox, Argireline inhibits the release of neurotransmitters in the muscles under the skin, and as a result, causes them to relax, preventing the skin from creasing and sagging. Because it is topical, though, Argireline is painless and does not risk any damage to the skin or nerves.
According to clinical studies, creams that contain at least 5% Argireline solution can reduce the depth of wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes by up to 32% after 28 days while those that contain at least 10% can reduce the wrinkle depth by as much as 60%. There are also studies that show how Argireline can make skin smoother and improve skin tone.
Deanol, which is short for dimethylaminoethanol or DMAE, increases acetylcholine levels in the body, which makes muscles leaner and firmer, and the skin tighter and fuller in appearance.
Ascorbyl Palmitate is one of the most soluble forms of Vitamin C, which has already been established as a powerful antioxidant that does a lot of wonders for the skin, including promoting the synthesis of collagen at a cellular level, lightening dark spots on the skin and making it smoother.
LifeCell Packaging and Application
LifeCell is available in 2.54-ounce handy tubes which can easily fit in one’s purse. Like most wrinkle creams, it is supposed to be applied once a day, preferably in the morning after the skin has been cleansed and dried, using just a pea-sized amount. With these instructions, according to the LifeCell website, a tube should last approximately 40 days.
LifeCell Anti-Aging light reflecting micro technology
One of the effects of LifeCell can be seen within seconds of application – its light-reflecting micro-technology. Basically, what this means is that LifeCell can cause light waves to bounce off the skin, disguising the shadows that the wrinkles create so they immediately seem to vanish, that is, until the next time you wash your face.
Other effects, such as smoother and hydrated skin, can be seen within minutes and last for up to 24 hours, while long-term results, usually visible after 4 to 8 weeks, include increased collagen production, and overall tighter, firmer and plumper skin. When applied around the eyes, LifeCell can also lift the eyelids and when applied on the lips, can have a smoothing and plumping effect, as well, for a glamorous pout.
LifeCell Customer Feedback
From the reviews I have read about LifeCell so far, it appears that most of those who use it are satisfied with it and want to keep using it, even going as far as recommending it to their friends. This can only mean that LifeCell works to some degree, which is more than what can be said for some expensive wrinkle creams that do not show any results at all.
Of course, LifeCell may not have the same results for everyone just as there is no wrinkle cream that consistently works for every age and skin type. However, its ingredients have been proven to work so they should improve your skin somehow and its light-reflecting micro-technology, as explained above, should work for everyone.
LifeCell Free Trial Offer
One of the best things about LifeCell, and probably one of the reasons why it is so popular, is its 30-day free trial offer. When I say 30-day free trial offer, what I mean is that you don’t have to pay a single cent for the product upfront, though you do need to pay for shipping and handling costs.
From what I have read, shipping is quite quick so you don’t have to wait long to try LifeCell out which is a good thing, and if for any reason you are not satisfied, you can just return the tube (within 30 days) and you will not be charged a cent. If, however, you are happy with the results, then you will be charged the full price of the product which is $189 (2 months’ supply of wrinkle cream) and will be enrolled in LifeCell’s VIP auto-shipping program, which means that a new tube of LifeCell will be shipped to you every 60 days. (Note: The LifeCell VIP auto-shipping program is the cheapest way to purchase LifeCell and will get you a discount of $40 off the regular $189 price.)
Even after you’ve already paid for LifeCell, you still have an additional 90 days to decide if you want to keep it and if not, you can ask for a full refund. You can also ask to be removed from the shipping program at any time, or have the product shipped every 90 or 120 days instead.
The customer service staff of LifeCell can be easily reached via phone (toll-free) or e-mail.
So Is LifeCell Skin Care Right For You?
LifeCell contains an impressive roster of ingredients, so it comes as no surprise that it shows good results. The fact that it is easy to order and comes with a 120-day 100% money back guarantee also make it easy to try out so you can see the results for yourself and decide whether or not they are worth your money. After all, LifeCell is quite an expensive wrinkle cream, which, apart from the fact that its website seems to be full of marketing hype, is the only drawback I can see. Then again, if you add up what the price would be to purchase a wrinkle cream, eye cream, lip plumper and moisturizer separately it seems like LifeCell isn’t such a bad deal!
