As I have been keeping a journal, of my 28 days of using both the Neutrogena ion2 complex gel serum, and the SPF 30 activating cream, today became crunch time. I had to look deeply into my face, and compare my results, to the Clinical Results that Neutrogena performed.
First I looked in the mirror, then I put my glasses on, which magnified my face. I did this with no makeup on, just the Neutrogena Clinical Facial Lifting Wrinkle Treatment. The end result was not a pretty sight.
Throughout the 4 week period, I had noted that my skin felt dryer, than using my regular moisturizer. Looking at it really closely today, I could see that I had a dry, slightly red patch, upon my chin, to the right side of my face. Because of it, I took a photograph of my mouth area, and hope that it shows up.
The wrinkles, and deep lines that I have around my mouth are still there.
When I took the first photograph of my eyes, it didn’t show enough, so I took a photograph of the side of both eye areas. Again there was no difference after the 28 day period.
In part three I gave the results of the clinical trial, and have to say that I have no idea how they got them.
From the back of the box this is what they say about the technology of the product:
“Neutrogena brings you revolutionary anti-aging technology to minimize the visible signs of collagen loss. This product contains 2 breakthrough technologies stored separately to preserve purity and maximize power. Patented ion2 complex contains essential ion-mineral conductors that, when activated by the companion moisturizer, create a positive electric micro-current. It’s so gentle you can’t feel it, but you’ll see a resilient, toned, overall more youthful look.”
What a load of rubbish. My face looks worse than when I first started using this product. I have also put up the Day 1 photograph, and I feel that my skin has got older, than my 62 years, while using this wrinkle treatment.
Neutrogena also tell us that they are the #1 dermatologist recommend skincare brand, and I have loved some of their products. However, I cannot go along with them saying that they ‘Deliver visible and lasting results for healthy, younger-looking skin.’
I purchased this product last month for $34.99 + tax, and am delighted that I will be getting a rebate for the cost of the product. I can live with paying the tax. The treatment did last me the full 4 weeks, and I probably have one, or two days supply of the gel serum left. It is difficult to say how much of the SPF 30 activating cream I have left, as it is in a spray bottle.
My husband is really surprised, that I would be willing to share these ugly photographs will you, but it is the only way I can prove the point. As of tomorrow I will be going back to a plain old fashioned moisturizer, that will put hydration back into my face.
Keep your money in your purse, or you could be sporting photographs, as above. I wouldn’t normally take photographs of myself without makeup, but I did it for my own study of the Neutrogena Clinical Facial Lifting Wrinkle Treatment.
