Our Review of Skinn Dimitri James
Skinn is a cosmetics company that was started by Dimitri James, who has claimed to work within large cosmetics companies for over 20 years. James says he left the larger companies to start his own smaller one, because he felt the large corporations never cared about the consumers and making a quality product. According to him, they are focused on the bottom line, and may sometimes use low-quality products to save money.
Products at a Glance
Dimitri supposedly opened Skinn to provide people with higher quality products and better formulas than may be found in the large corporations’ formulas. We will take a closer look at this product line to determine what type of anti-aging benefits it may provide.
For Dry to Normal skin, this line promotes a product that is focused on the issue of wrinkles. Though, since it is not said to work with all skin types, Wrinkle Balm Extreme may not be the choice for everyone.
Products in Focus
According to the company website, Wrinkle Balm Extreme contains the following ingredients: Olea Europaea, Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Glycine Soja (soybean) Sterol Lavandula Spica, Bisabolol, Wild Yam Extract, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapetide-3, Phaseolus Lunatus (Green Bean) Extract, Retinol, Lecithin, Hordeum Vulgare (Barley) Extract, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Extract, Noni Oil, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Linoleic Acid and Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E).
This formula contains several moisturizing agents, such as Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil and Vitamin E. Properly hydrated skin is an important step in an anti-aging regimen, since dry skin may accentuate wrinkles. While moisturization only addresses the surface, it is still important, which is why we are concerned that this product contains Retinol.
Retinol is actually contained within many skincare products, since it is said to revitalize the skin. It does this through peeling away the top dermal layers of skin to reveal the new skin beneath. This may eliminate blemishes and acne scars, but is not shown to have a significant effect on wrinkles. Furthermore, this process is also thought to cause dry, scaly skin, and also possibly cause the skin to develop sensitivity to the sun.
Considering that this product is advertised to reduce the appearance of wrinkles significantly, we are surprised that the manufacturer does not include any potent anti-wrinkle ingredients.
There is a Skinn website posted, and we appreciate that the company posts the complete ingredient list to accompany each product description. Surprisingly, not all manufacturers provide this information to individuals, which is often important and essential to women who need to research a product before use to avoid potential allergic reactions or skin irritations. In addition, this website is well organized and pleasing to the eye. Though, we feel the site would be more useful if it also posted testimonials from people who have used these products in the past.
• Complete ingredient lists are posted onlineFinal Thoughts
• Line is moderately priced
Some people may like the small business aspect of this company. The creator says to use high-quality ingredients and well developed formulas. Though, we notice that the Skinn line contains rather common ingredients that may be found in a multitude of other creams and lotions now on the market. Based on the formula, we do not feel that the Wrinkle cream in this line will have a significant effect on the appearance of wrinkles. Some women may prefer a product that includes patented Collagen stimulators in the formula.
The Wrinkle Cream is moderately priced, but Skinn only provides a 30-day money-back guarantee. This may not be long enough for people to return the product if unsatisfied. Fortunately, it is possible to find a skin care product online that incorporates the most advanced ingredients and offers a fair return policy to ensure your satisfaction.
