The following review examines a product called SkinCeuticals Resveratrol BE. This night serum claims to provide visible radiance and firmness by neutralizing free radicals, therefore promoting more youthful looking skin. The manufacturer claims that this product is suitable for all skin types, but is it suited as the best age-defying night serum available? We shall assess the ingredients as well as the customer support provided to find the answers.
- Resveratrol (1%)
- Baicalin (0.5%)
- Vitamin E (1%)
Resveratrol, a powerful antioxidative ingredient, supports the skin’s natural defense in fighting oxidative and aging damage caused by free radicals. In doing so, Resveratrol is known to reduce signs of aging by both protecting and repairing skin cells. Baicalin and Vitamin E are also antioxidants that support the protection and wrinkle-reducing efforts of Resveratrol while rejuvenating skin. While these ingredients may be beneficial in reducing signs of aging, the formula is missing some key active and supporting ingredients. For example, there are no patented ingredients designed for increasing collagen production, such as Syn-Coll, or an ingredient to increase the vitality of skin stem cells which naturally increase the skin’s protection against climate-induced stress, such as Phyto Cell Tec Alp Rose. Furthermore, there is a lack of supportive ingredients like gentle and balancing Jojoba Oil which offers additional moisturizing support throughout the entire night. There is no mention if this product is vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, or if it was manufactured in a GMP certified facility. This is a concern as the ethics and quality of this product as well as its processes may be in question.
The manufacturer offers relatively clear instructions on how to use this product for best results; after cleansing, simply apply 2 pumps of the product per application to your face. There is also a video to accompany these directions. The concentration of the active ingredients appear to be within the market standard rage, however, the lack of additional patented and supportive ingredients are bound to inhibit the effectiveness of this product.
SkinCeuticals Resveratrol B E can be purchased directly from the manufacturer’s website. A 1 oz pump bottle retails for $153, which is relatively expensive, especially since there is no additional discounts or package offers available. Furthermore, there is no indication of how long the product will last, making the value of the product unclear, therefore, long-term use of this product may become very costly to sustain.
SkinCeuticals offers a 30-day 100% money-back guarantee for their products. This is positive to note as it may suggest manufacturer confidence in the product as well as its effectiveness. However, the policy is lacking key information as to the details of the refund, such as product condition, which may complicate the returns process. It’s concerning to see that there are many customer reviews on third-party sites that complained that they experienced negative side effects after using this product. From allergic reactions to not improving skin conditions, these customer reviews raise major concerns regarding the efficacy of this product.
SkinCeuticals Resveratrol BE Review – Conclusion
This product has an impressive list of ingredients that are known to have powerful anti-oxidative benefits to support younger looking skin. Although, while these ingredients may be beneficial in reducing signs of aging, the formula is missing some key, as well as supportive, ingredients. These include patented ingredients with targeted benefits like boosting collagen production or nourishing supportive ingredients to offer hydrating relief to dry skin throughout the night. In saying so, this may inhibit the effectiveness of this product when compared to other brands that do offer a total-care solution. It’s positive to note that there is a 30-day policy available, however, it’s somewhat vague. The price is very expensive for a product that has resulted in poor results or negative side effects. For these reasons, we do not recommend SkinCeuticals Resveratrol BE as the best anti-aging night serum available.
