What is it? Skin Nutrition Cell CPR is a face cream that mimics the body’s own biological process of making new cells. It aims to restore cell health and counteract aging.

For people with: Wrinkles, fine lines and age spots.

Recommended use: Apply morning and night, immediately after cleansing and toning the skin. May be used on its own or under moisturizer or night cream.

TIA recommends for people in: 50s+

Highlights: Marta says her skin is plump, glowing and less wrinkled. With a whopping 70 ingredients, the inclusion of some new peptides have some promising results, such as activating skin cell regeneration by stimulating the natural desquamation process of the skin, and repairing wrinkles and wounds.

Complaints: The price is a bit steep, but may be worth it (Marta says she’d buy a replacement bottle with her own hard earned).

Niall also noted the cost, and said, “I’m a big fan of their Environmental Protection Serum, which is about half the price.

Ingredients we love: Skin Cell CPR is made ofphospholipids, proteins (enzymes, oligopeptides, amino acids), oligosaccharides, oxygen, vitamins and minerals. Some notable ones include Hexanoyl dipeptide-3, which activates skin cell regeneration by stimulating the natural desquamation process of the skin, leading to a gentle peeling. Rh-oligopeptide-1 (Egf) is a recombitant human epidermal growth factor that repairs wrinkles and wounds. Another wound healer is copper tripeptide (also known as copper GHK). Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) is fascinating because it is the main energy source for the majority of cellular and muscular functions. Some great botanicals include Phaeodactylum tricornutum, a type of alga that is anti-inflammatory and arctostaphylos uva ursi leaf extract, a bearberry that contains arbutin, a skin whitener, and can inhibit melanin precursors. Lastly, perfluorodecalin is thought to revitalize skin and reduce wrinkles.

Ingredients we don’t: Wild yam root can cause skin irritation, depending on how it has been prepared and the concentrations used.

Retail Price: $170
