Although there are plenty of Nutra-Lift products that I love and can’t get over the great price to quality ratio (the White Chocolate body lotion, or the shampoo), I didn’t strike gold with Nutra-Lift Rejuvenating A Nano Renue ($48).  Don’t get me wrong, there was nothing bad about my experience with it, just nothing especially good. Its effect on my skin was mostly neutral, but also somewhat drying. In fact, I had a similar experience to Barrie, who reviewed Nutra-Lift’s One Stop for us the other day.

As always with a Nutra-Lift product, A Nano Renue is packed with great ingredients and there is nothing not to like.  But after five weeks, I kept looking at my skin on my right side, where I was testing A Nano Renue, and comparing it to the left, where I was using Chella’s Master Protocol.  It isn’t really a fair comparison since the Chella costs nearly $90 more. But my right cheek didn’t care about that, it wanted what the left was getting.

Perhaps A Nano Renue is limited not by its ingredients but by their concentrations. This is pure speculation on my part, but I did notice that the effectiveness of one of the key actives here, golden collagenine, is dose dependent. This is a synthetic peptide that has been attached (or nanoconjugated as the manufacturer of this ingredient puts it) to gold particles.  So these nano gold particles act as the delivery system for a peptide that is supposed to have an impact on collagen production.  At a 0.3% dose, golden collagenine will boost collagen synthesis by over 200% and by over 150% at a 0.15% dose. I don’t know what the concentration used by Nutra Lift is.

I believe that Susan is trying it out and I am looking forward to hearing from her.  She liked it a week in, but that was a month ago. Hopefully, she has struck gold.
