Lifeline Stem Cell Skincare Recovery Night Moisture Serum enhances the body’s natural healing cycle to rejuvenate the appearance of skin while you sleep. The advanced growth factor formula is powered by peptides and amino acids from non-embryonic human stem cells to slow the signs of aging, support healthy cellular metabolism and increase moisture levels in the skin. Suitable for all skin types, this anti-aging serum visibly smooths, firms and tones the skin, according to our Truth In Aging reviewer
Peptides from human stem cells repair damaged cells while stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Linoleic acid, a powerful essential fatty acid, strengthens the moisture barrier for softer and suppler skin. It’s also chock-full of antioxidants, including Coenzyme Q10 and vitamin E. Lifeline Stem Cell Skincare Recovery Night Moisture Serum is formulated without parabens or synthetic fragrances. Apply two pumps to clean skin, spreading evenly over face, every night before bed and you’ll wake up to firmer, brighter and youthful-looking skin.
Tested for 30 days and recommended by Angela T:
I am 38 years old with thin skin that is very oily in the t-zone and drier everywhere else. I have some fine lines and soft wrinkles. My fair skin is also prone to redness and blotchiness. I was asked to review the Lifeline Stem Cell Skin Care Recovery Night Moisture Serum ($190).
The directions state to dispense and apply two pumps to the face every evening, but I found one pump to be enough for my entire face. The serum has no discernible scent (or added fragrance) and the texture of a light lotion, which absorbs very quickly.
My face felt comforted and hydrated immediately after application, and there was a feeling of moisture being locked into my skin. Most of the time that I tested it, the weather was very hot and humid and I found the serum to be moisturizing enough on its own for my combination skin. Now that the weather has turned cooler and less humid, I find that I need more moisture than what the serum alone provides.
Lifeline states that the non-embryonic human stem cell extracts in their products can improve skin firmness, elasticity, thickness, skin tone and brightness. Fine lines and wrinkles are also supposed to diminish over time. They state that peak improvement is typically seen after six to eight weeks (or two complete cellular cycles) of continuous use.
After 30 days of use, my skin is firmer and feels more toned. It feels thicker and less delicate. I have also seen a reduction in redness. However, I haven’t noticed a brightening effect. There has been some lift and thus lessening of the horizontal lines on my face, but I haven’t noticed any significant difference to the vertical lines on my face yet. As four weeks is a pretty short time frame, I will be curious to see if there is more improvement in my lines and wrinkles with continued use over the next couple of months.
Overall, though, there is a general more youthful look to my face and my skin feels more resilient. I plan on continuing to use the serum until the tube is empty and am leaning toward purchasing once I am finished. My only hesitation is the price point.
The use of stem cell extracts (plant and human) in skin care has become increasingly popular over the last several years for the purpose of stimulating collagen and elastin production. Despite their popularity, there is a notable dearth of evidence as to their efficacy. I am not a scientist or skin care expert, but based on the research that I’ve done for this review, it seems that there isn’t a sufficient evidentiary basis that shows that plant stem cell extracts can stimulate collagen and elastin formation (though they may provide antioxidant benefits).
However, there does seem to be a scientifically plausible basis that human stem cells may be effective. And it is worth noting that Lifeline really seems to stand by their products. They share some limited information on their website of a study that they conducted, which showed that their human stem cell extract accelerated the ability of wounded skin to repair and rejuvenate itself.
