Though it promises instant sculpting and line-smoothing, it didn't deliver after a month of use


Uses certified organic anti-aging ingredients


No improvement in skin firmness, wrinkles or tone

At close to 60, I just couldn’t resist testing something that contains a proprietary blend of organic & scientifically advanced ingredients, called R-Lift, that ”shatters the limitations of even the most top-performing skin care brands on the market today. ” Happily, I took on Raffaele Ruberto Formula No. 9 face and eye serum ($90). It is said to sculpt the jawline and cheekbones, erase puff, blur fine lines and improve skin tone — within minutes.

This is a new company and the man behind it is – you guessed right! – Raffaele Roberto, known as “the beauty biologist.” In his blog he describes the concept of the company’s product line R-Lift Trio as using the most up-to-date ingredients with proven, peer-reviewed scientific evidence in an inert medium to reduce interactions and host them in a delivery system which will flood skin cells with their powerful anti-aging properties.

There are several well-known anti-aging ingredients in this product, such as resveratrol, DMAE and hyaluronic acid. Furthermore, the product is free of parabens and phthalates, as well as being cruelty-free.

I’ve now used this product twice daily for four weeks and my impressions are poor. The consistency is nice and it has a silky feel to it. The smell, unfortunately, is more than slightly off-putting, like burnt coal. However, I would live with the smell if the serum would deliver as promised — but it doesn’t. After four weeks I can’t see the slightest sclupting or smoothing, so in my opinion this product is all talk and no walk.

If you’re absolutely itching to spend $90, I recommend buying something else from the Truth In Aging shop.

    Might I be able to send you a few star pieces of the collection for a re-review potential?
