Product Description How to Use Ingredients
Our version of Smoothing, Firming & Brightening Crème for oily skin.  As far as we know, there is no other anti-aging product out there for acne/oily skin types.  Made with 20% Glycolic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Vitamins A & C, and the new skin plumping peptide-Argireline.  (For more information see CLINICAL RESULTS and TECHNOLOGY tables below).  Our product contains 10% Acetyl Hexapeptide 8 (double the industry standard) to prevent and combat the signs of aging!

This unique gel is suited for very oily and/or acne prone skin.  Smoothing Gel –AH8 minimizes fine lines, acne lesions, wrinkles, discoloration, enlarged pores and eliminates oil & bacteria from the skin!

The clinical results on the trails for this ingredient are amazing!  Results are seen almost instantaneously and dramatically!  Argireline offers superior anti-wrinkle efficacy: Studies demonstrate that it is highly efficacious at not only inhibiting wrinkle development but in reducing existing wrinkle depth as well.  Facial wrinkly associate with aging is caused and exacerbated by many factors.  Beyond the physiological pathways, molecular mechanisms involved in facial aging include changes in collagen conformation, elastin polypeptide degradation and problems of the skin’s lipid matrix.   Recent studies clearly establish that these changes can be significantly reduced by inhibiting SNARE complex formation, a core of membrane proteins that mediate neuronal exocytosis.  Their inhibitions by short synthetic peptides can decrease facial wrinkles.

In vivo tests further demonstrated the benefits of Argireline solution.  Facial topography analysis (for measuring the effectiveness of an O/W emulsion containing 10% Argireline solution) was performed using silicon replicas from around the eyes at 0, 15, and 30 days of a twice-a-day treatment regimen.  Analyses of the imprints were performed by confocal laser scanning microscopy.  It was observed that the severity of wrinkles around the eyes decreased up to 17% after 15 days of treatment and up to 27% after 30 days of treatment, substantiating the proposed biochemical mechanism hypothesis.  Argireline solution was ascertained in two different vitro tests directly related to the formation of wrinkles in the epidermis as well as a separate in vivo test performed on healthy human volunteers.

FABULOUS August 26, 2015
Reviewer: Deanna F. from ,  
This Smoothing Gel is the "powerhouse" of glycolic acid products. During the initial trial period, Ms. Strickland suggests that the smoothing gel be used only once a day for a month. There is good reason for this. It can and will cause irritation and the skin must adjust to it. I could not recommend this product to any one with sensitive skin or to anyone with a low "pain" tolerance because it "stings/burns". However, once my skin adjusted to this product, I found that it was not only a FABULOUS exfoliant, but also a fantastic oil control lotion and wrinkle/line eraser. My crow's feet have completely disappeared and my skin, even in the summer, did not produce nearly the amount of oil it usually does. I have found, now in the fall, that it is a little too aggressive and have started using the creams on my face instead of the gel.

WOW! August 26, 2015
Reviewer: Heather Kleinman  
I've been an advocate of AHAs for acne prone skin for quite some time, and I've tried just about every brand out there. I can honestly say I like this one the best. I am just beyond myself as to how well it has reduced my fine lines and blotchiness from old acne. I've had better results and less irritation with this than any other AHA I've tried!
