Not so! I am very very picky about what goes on my face and when I received EliteSerum RX (Extra Strength) to review from SkinPro Int., I felt excited to try it as all the reviews on Amazon were positive – very positive. EliteSerum RX Extra Strength works to take away eye wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness and contains eight potent peptides at clinical levels – I NEED THIS! I checked on at least five other online review sites, some for skin creams only, and all reviews agreed that Elite Serum RX Extra Strength works. It is difficult to review the “effects” of a facial product on any blog as we only try it for 2 weeks to a month and sometimes the effects do not show as products have different timelines for use and improvement, especially on wrinkles and aging skin. I have always used StriVectin, and I wanted to try Elite Serum RX Extra Strength to see the difference. I am at the month’s end, and I did see results. The puffiness under my eyes decreased and the wrinkles around my eyes decreased. Since I am 66, the decrease was not dramatic, but it was noticeable, and with time that might change. The release cap is extremely useful as it is an on-off top and it primes the exact amount (about the size of a pea) onto your finger for usage and a small amount goes a long way.
My questions on all skin creams are this:
What is the level of ingredients, how powerful are they, and will they work? Elite Serum RX Extra Strength’s website states the ingredients and explains what each does and how it works. It is complicated and thorough and I suggest you spend some time there as you decide on whether you want to try this product.
From the Elite Serum Website Itself:
Argireline® is the brand name for Acetyl Hexapeptide-8. It is considered by experts, including Dr. Oz, to be the best needle-free alternative to cosmetic injections. Argireline® has been shown to reduce wrinkle depth, especially around the eyes. This was proven in a study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science in 2002. In this report, it was demonstrated that a cream containing 10% Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 used by healthy women volunteers reduced wrinkle depth up to 30 percent after 30 days of treatment.
How exactly can a peptide that you directly apply to the skin reduce wrinkles just like a cosmetic injection?
As an alternative to topical injections, Argireline® triggers the relaxation of the muscles responsible for the formation of expression lines around the eyes. This hexapeptide mimics the N-terminal end of SNAP-25 and competes with this natural protein for a position in the SNARE complex. As a result, neurotransmitters are not released efficiently and facial contractions are weakened and muscles relaxed. This inhibits the formation of wrinkles around the eyes.
The EliteSerum RX Extra Strength Website explains all the other ingredients and the way they work and you have to read it! On the EliteSerumRX ExtraStrength website each ingredient is well defined, research is given, amounts are given and the effects of each ingredient are also given. I wish more companies would do this, as consumers can research the AMOUNT of ingredients in the product for efficacy. I LOVE that Elite Serum RX includes a huge amount of SPECIFIC information on their website.
I really did like this product and will continue to do so, and it also prompted me to do research online about ingredients and to call companies and ask questions. Bottom line: Go to the website, read, and research, call the company. Check out consumer reports. Do your homework. I also wish that other companies would let us know the amounts of the ingredients in their products so that we have some idea if these ingredients are in quantities that work. I did see that Elite Serum RX claimed to have enough of the Argireline to do its job. They have several other ingredients that are explained on their very inclusive website, and the amounts are noted as strong enough for clinical trials, which I took to mean enough to do their job as stated.
From the Elite Serum RX website on one peptide in Elite Serum RX®:
Argireline® is the brand name for Acetyl Hexapeptide-3. It is considered by experts to be the best needle-free alternative to cosmetic injections. Argireline® has been shown to reduce wrinkle depth, especially around the forehead and eyes. This was proven in a study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science in 2002. In this report, it was demonstrated that a cream containing 10% Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 used by healthy women volunteers reduced wrinkle depth up to 30 percent after 30 days of treatment.
In another study by Center Chem®, an open label-trial of 5% Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 cream applied twice daily on 10 women demonstrated a 27% improvement in periorbital rhytids after 30 days as measured by silicone replica analysis. Theoretically, this peptide may mimic the effects of cosmetic injections.”
I do recommend this skin care for me as I have seen a noticeable improvement every day that I use it. And the improvement is much more dramatic than StriVectin. I can honestly say that it works. Also, another thing I like about Elite Serum RX Extra Strength is that the company had a winner on its hands – the original Elite Serum – and then made enhancements to the product to produce a stronger strength product in Elite Serum RX Extra Strength. I find that this is a company that cares about the quality of their product line.
This product retails at $99.00. However, it lasted me a long, long time, over 6 months. It is also comparable with other products that claim similar changes to appearance.
