First off let me preface this review with the disclaimer that I and my skin are by no means delicate flowers; we’re more of the tenacious weed type. In our younger days we survived living the “rustic” life in Northern Australia and New Zealand, and life aboard ship sailing the Atlantic ocean. And most recently we barely survived living in a hospital room for a month and half with my daughter. Let me tell you hospital rooms wreak havoc on your skin with their dry “purified” air, plus there wasn’t much time for a skin care regimen whilst being at the beck and call of a sick toddler.
Now that I’ve got that out of the way onto the review of Skin Cell Therapy Anti-aging Cream by Biologic
Needless to say I was ecstatic to receive the Stem Cell Therapy skin cream to review for all the TIA readers. I had seen and heard all about it in the media and was intrigued by it’s claims; we’re all searching for that one miracle cream right? That’s why we’re here at TIA with Marta at the helm! But given my lack of disposable income I could never justify making the quantum leap to purchase their product, plus any product that uses an auto-fill program that automatically charges my credit card at a regular interval does not leave me feeling too confident about it.
I received the product from Marta and promptly opened the product to give it the sniff test. It didn’t have an overpowering perfume smell, 1 point for SCT. The consistency was nice, not too thick and goopy, another point for SCT. Patience is not a virtue I possess, just ask my daughter who since the age of 3 has used the phrase “chop chop let’s go!” (Atta girl!) So I decide to begin my nighttime skin care routine a “little” early so I can give this cream a whirl! I washed my face with my usual product and my Clarisonic and then applied the Skin Cell Therapy Cream to the clean slate of my face and neck. All was well, it didn’t sting, and as I said it didn’t have an overpowering smell and it went on smoothly.
Fast forward to the next morning, before I even get out of bed I notice my neck is itchy. Of course I have to give it a scratch and I feel bumps on my neck! Panicked I sprint to the bathroom mirror to see my neck has developed a full blown case of turkey neck, so now not only is it beginning to get a bit saggy, it now is red and bumpy just like the turkeys that wander through the woods behind our house. Luckily the turkey effect doesn’t make it to my face, although throughout the day the bumpiness does creep up to my jaw line and extends to the hollows of my cheeks, but thankfully it behaves and doesn’t turn red and it isn’t too itchy. Now please remember my original disclaimer that my skin is not the sensitive type, I have NEVER experienced any type of allergic reaction to any type of product or food, and Lord knows I have tried all kinds of skin care products over the past 15 years or so. I am a self-confessed skin product junky and I have the overflowing crates filled with partially consumed product under my vanity to prove it.
Alas I am extremely sad to say that Skin Cell Therapy skin cream was a complete failure for me and now it just sits on my vanity taunting me daily; and trust me I have been sorely tempted to retry it in the hopes that it won’t cause a nasty rash and will restore my skin to its youthful luster and glow. But I just remind myself about the turkey neck and I refrain. My rash experience coupled with Marta’s difficulty in removing herself from their auto ship program should be factored in before you decide to make this purchase.
But on the plus side I did discover that using Apple Cider Vinegar as a toner helped eliminate my rash within days and it made my skin feel very tingly! Just don’t get it in your eyes if you try it.
