Renuven is a instant vanish wrinkle cream which contains silicon dioxide as its main ingredient. When applied, the tiny microscopic silicon dioxide crystals soak into the wrinkles and reflects away light from the skin. This reduces the appearance of the wrinkles on the face to the human eyes. The effect is temporary but lasts a while unless your skin gets wet.
Aside from the instant wrinkle concealing effect, Renuven also added other ingredients which also helps reduce wrinkles after long term usage. They are hyaluronic acid, almond oil, grape seed oil, green tea extract, and glycerin.
Hyaluronic acid has been well documented as an ingredient that keeps the skin hydrated by helping it retain its natural moisture and also aid collagen production. Almond oil is another good moisturizing ingredient and also helps soothe dry and irritated skin. Glycerin also aids in moisturizing while green tea extract is a powerful antioxidant that helps reduces the appearance of scars and marks on the skin. Grape seed oil is also known to have some wrinkle and fine line reduction properties.
I recall seeing Renuven mentioned in a beauty magazine a while ago but couldn’t remember exactly which one. According to their website, Renuven has been in quite a few publications, including Vogue, Beauty and Fashion, and also Allure.
The price of Renuven is fairly good at $49.95 for a 60 day supply. Currently the company is offering a 30 day free trial for $9.95 in shipping and handling. If you don’t like Renuven you can return it anytime within 30 days and never be charged for it. Also included with the trial is a bonus free 2 oz Advanced Protection SPF30 cream worth $19.95 which you can keep even if you return the free trial of Revunen.

This Purity Mineral Makeup kit is made from all-natural minerals instead of chemicals. It should be better for some skin types, including sensitive skin.
The company claims that the makeup provides a natural, luminous, glow and feels weightless. It can be quickly and easily applied. They also state that it is perfect for all skin types including young, oily, mature, or sensitve skin. I ordered the free trial for the kit but haven’t really have time to try it out. When you are a full time housewife with kids and pets, you don’t really have much time to worry about putting on makeup.
For the mineral kit, you have four different shades to choose from; light, medium, tan, and dark. The kit includes the following items;
The website claims the value of the kit is $145, which might be slightly exaggerated. The quality seems decent but I don’t think it really costs that much. You pay $1 for the free trial and $7.95 for shipping and handling which makes the total $8.95.

Therapeutix Clear Skin System is an acne solution developed by Dr. Luftman, a Board Certified Dermatologist based in Beverly Hills and is also a clinical faculty member at UCLA. Dr. Luftman’s Therapeutix is different for a few other anti-acne systems since it does not contain harsh ingredients such as alcohol or Benzoyl Peroxide. While those products with harsher ingredients may reduce acne , they can also strip the skin of its natural oils, and also cause dryness and irritation. Therapeutix also provides SPF protection, which isn’t commonly found in acne products. Therapeutix’s website claims protection from the sun is important since acne-prone skin is more susceptible to sun damage, inflammation, and scarring.
The Therapeutix Clear Skin solution is a three step process like many other acne fighting systems. However, it does not use a toner like other acne solutions. It includes a clarifying cleanser, a moisturizing acne scar treatment with SPF protection, and a night lotion. Also, included is an emergency outbreak stick. The system uses what the company calls AcneZone Technology. It is their trademarked anti-acne solution which uses ingredients such as Salicylic Acid, Azelaic Acid, Retinol, Glycolic Acid, and Zinc.
What I liked about their product is that they do not contain oils, fragrances, parabens or dyes. I ordered Therapeutix for my teenage son to try over a year ago. The results were fairly good and he claims the product feels gentle and doesn’t irritate the skin like other acne treatments he used. He was using it for about three to four months. Since then, we have tried a few different acne solutions for him. It appears for my son and other people, after using an acne product for so long, their bodies developed a natural tolerance to the product and it becomes less effective.
The retail price of Therapeutix is around $60 for a 60 day supply. Currently they are offering a 30-day free trial, where you have to pay $6.95 in shipping and handling.
Update: The free trial offer of Therapeutix has expired.
