Skin 2 Skin Anti-Sagging Renewal Serum is a solution for: Sagging Skin, Wrinkles and Viable Old & New Scars.
30 Day Review by Marta Wohrle, Truth in Aging Founder
When I chatted to Skin 2 Skin founder Ken Simpson (Truth In Aging interview with Skin 2 Skin founder Ken Simpson) about Anti-Sagging Renewal Serum ($73.00), he went out of his way to point out that it contains dimethicone, adding that while he appreciates that some in the Truth In Aging community won’t like this, the ingredient does wonders for scars and hydration. It did not put me off when testing the serum, and I am most impressed with the results.
This serum can certainly be added to our arsenal of firming creams. I found that my skin looked a little lifted, especially around the jawline and lower cheeks. Overall, my skin is firmer and softer. As a bonus, as promised by Ken, I found that an odd little callused scar which appeared one day a year ago on the site of a blemish, is much reduced. Nothing had helped in the past. Good job, Skin 2 Skin.
One of the things I like about this creamy-textured serum, is that the ingredients list doesn’t take an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach. It is tightly focused on two very good peptide complexes (three peptides in total), green tea stem cells (Skin 2 Skin’s signature blend called PepStem4 Ultra-Lift) and the aforementioned silicone.
My objection to silicone in skincare is that it has been a stalwart of department store beauty brands for decades, used to impart a superficial silkiness to the skin and inexpensively bulk up the formula. However, Skin 2 Skin has consciously introduced it here to help soften and reduce scars and blemishes. As I mentioned earlier in this review, I can attest to this working. Independent research has demonstrated that silicone increases hydration of stratum corneum. The result is a softer and flatter scar.
As always Skin 2 Skin, this is a highly effective formulation that does what it sets out to do and contains no nasties. For those looking to achieve firmer, more velvety skin, this is definitely on the must try list.
On application, skin feels soft and smooth; with consistent use, it improves the texture and tautness. Suitable for all skin types and Free of Parabens, Petroleum, Mineral Oil, Palm Oil, Paraffin, Phthalates, Synthetic Color and Fragrance, Cruelty-Free
