A targeted serum with two potent actives

Pros

Reduces fine lines and deep wrinkles

Cons

None

A serum with two impeccable anti-aging ingredients, no nasties and a price tag under fifty bucks...it almost sounds too good to be true. Especially with a brand name that more than hints at Hollywood make-believe. Well, I have been testing ASDM Beverly Hills Matrixyl 3000 Serum ($35) and it is the real deal.

The wonderfully simple but potent serum has four ingredients: two actives, Matrixyl 3000 and hyaluronic acid, and two natural preservatives. It is an elegant testament to ASDM Beverly Hill’s mission that “fuses science and nature.”

Since there are but two actives, let’s look at what they are, what they are supposed to do and how they worked out for me. Since what you want, pretty much, from a serum is wrinkle reduction and moisturization, this is what they do. Hyaluronic acid is a hydrating ingredient. ASDM says their formulation has low molecular weight (for better penetration) and is made from glucose, soy peptone and yeast extract. This is one of the very few examples I can think of where a manufacturer has revealed the provenance of this active.

Hyaluronic acid works by drawing in moisture and holding on to it. A gram of hyaluronic acid can hold 6 liters of water. Its water-binding properties fill up the spaces between the connective fibers collagen and elastin in the dermis. This allows skin to say supple and prevents wrinkles from forming in dry skin. However, the important thing to note is that it is drawing in moisture from the environment and if yours is very arid then the molecules will draw on whatever moisture is in your skin and you will feel dried out. Since New York winters are mostly dry, I topped off this serum with a moisturizer (I Pekar’s) on all but the most humid days.

I’ll rarely turn down an opportunity to include Matrixyl 3000 in my regimen. The two peptides in this complex, palmitoyl-tripeptide and palmitoyl-oligopeptide, are supposed work synergistically to mimic the appearance of broken down collagen, causing your skin to come to the rescue by producing more collagen, as well as elastin. For combatting fine lines Matrixyl 3000 is hard to beat. I even found that this ASDM serum was helpful on my deeper forehead lines.

Overall, ASDM Beverly Hills Matrixyl 3000 Serum is a great find that punches above its price point.

    This is a very cost effective product with Hyaluronic Acid and Matrixyl 3000. The texture is a silky gel that goes a long way and comes in a generous bottle. I have used it with the Truth Vitality Lux Renew on my face, on my forearms to improve that skin texture and even to heal skin wounds from the new kitten and on my daughter chapped hands. It isn't Medik8 Firewall (which is pretty much ambrosia) but it is a fraction of the cost. The company's products are attractive in their simplicity and price point. Glad I have it in the routine!
