I must have enough product backlog in my bathroom to moisturize the state of Wyoming at this point. I finally decided to break down and provide some reviews. Issues I am trying to address are first wrinkles and loss of elasticity. I used this and the skin prep without for two weeks. No improvement. In fact I have seen an increase depth of forehead line. Discontinued use this evening. Will not be revisiting.

This is really a staple product for me. I started using it a few years ago when I saw some lines around my eyes and a friend swore by the whole line. I do not use the prep or the eye treatment I have tried them both many times the company is very generous with samples but it just didn't make that much of a difference for me. The cream though I just love it is not greasy at all it sinks right in, there is not scent no stinging no redness peeling any of the problems associated with retinols or alpha hydroxy skin products. It is just wonderful smooth and hydrating. I wear this under makeup and before bed. It also is the only skin cream that I can put on my chin and jawline without getting a breakout!!! Before I would just skip putting creams on those areas.
It is very expensive but I buy 2 get the 3rd bottle free discounts so it is slightly less expensive I have 2 bottles in my cabinet now!

I used this product twice a day on my entire face. After 2 days some parts of my face were itchy and noticed some areas have tiny red rashes so I stopped using it. I don't know what's all the hype about this product. I sent an email to the customer service listed on the Jansen Beckett website about my disappointment and how the store would not take back/refund opened products. It's been more than 3 weeks and no replies from this company.

I used the entire product line for 2 months and no difference noted. I am 35 years of age with fair and with good skin. I am searching for a product to keep wrinkles away. I do get puffiness around the eyes. Since I used this product I noticed more visible lines. I hate to throw this product away but I am unsure. It is sitting on top of my vanity sink top. Since then I have switched to another product. It is pricey but don't mind paying the price but as long as it provides results!!

nice emollient and moisturizing that doesn't relax any wrinkle!!! all the products of this kind are temporary (avotone and liftfusion are the best) but they work............ this one NOT!!!

I began using all of the Janson-Beckett Anti-aging Products about one year ago. At first I didn't see much in the way of results, but after about a month, both of my adult daughters, who hadn't seen me in a little over a month, couldn't believe how much younger I looked. After about three months, I really began to see significant changes in my skin. Many wrinkles (deep ones, too) were either gone completely, or just barely visible. I am 62 years old, and am very proud of the way my skin looks now. Of course, it did not take all of the wrinkles away (that would truly be a miracle), but the ones it didn't take away completely, were made so very soft they are barely visible. My skin has become smooth, radiant, and silky. I love these products. Give them a try.

I wanted to chime in on my results with the AlphaDermaCE routine. I love the packaging, preferring my active ingredients to be stored in glass instead of plastic and I love the fact that ingredients are listed right on the bottle. And oh, what ingredients these are!
I'm 42 years old with fairly shallow few forehead lines, neck lines and slight crow's feet around the eyes. I've been using the Skin Prep and Alpha Derma CE every morning for the past 2 months and have definitely seen results on my neck and forehead, no dramatic results around the eyes. My sister in law even asked me if I had gone over to the dark side and got a Botox treatment! :)
I started out with the Hi-performance anti-aging system that contains 1oz. each of Alpha Derma CE, Skin Prep, .5 oz. Okusil [around the eyes] and .5 oz. of C serum. - While I'm not as impressed with the C serum and eye treatment, I'll definitely continue to use this line, the results are just too fantastic to do without!
BTW, a little goes a long way. I still have nearly 1/2 of a 1oz. bottle left, estimate I'll be going through 1 oz. every 3 months which actually makes this product quite affordable.

I have some horizontal wrinkle lines on my neck that bother me. I've been looking for something that will improve the appearance, and this cream does the trick. I tried a few other products including Sage's firming and brightening cream (new formula), Retin-a micro .04 and .1, Karin Herzog vita-a-kombi, and all of these products really irritated my neck and made it red. I got a sample of Alphaderma CE from Skinstore and used it for several weeks. It really did improve the appearance of the skin on my neck, so I bought the full size. Since I use it just on my neck, this bottle is going to last for a long time, so the price isn't too much of a problem. I think it is a good value for the $$$.

I am a 28 year old with very good skin. However, I bought this product because I am looking to keep wrinkles at bay. I read about this independant guide on wrinkle creams which you can find at www.wrinklecreamguide.com and this product rated the best. So, I bought it and have been using it for 5 weeks. It is great, as I said, I had good skin now I have great skin. I am not sure if it reduces wrinkles because I dont really have any (yet) but It has evened kin tone and does make my skin look a heap brighter. I have delicate fair skin and I find that this does not irritate it at all.

I was disappointed in this product. I am 41 with good skin except I'm starting to see frown lines between my brows, and from what I have read about the facial muscle-relaxing ACETYL HEXAPEPTIDE-AH3(ARGIRELINE) in this product, I thought it would give me great results, but after using it twice a day for over 5 weeks, I have noticed no visible improvement at all in my frown lines. The ingredient list is impressive, and I suppose if I had more mature skin with other problems, I might have found this product more useful, but it didn't help the one problem I bought it for, so for me it was a waste of money.

I've been using this product for over a year and I LOVE it! I am a 50 year old who had definitely abused the sun for years until the past ten or so years - was beginning to see some definite aging. After using this line, my skin glows, wrinkles are very diminshed, very little sagging, if any. My daughter gave me a facial for my birthday and the esthetician asked what I was using on my face because my tone was so good. Just last week had my 50th (yikes!) birthday and no one can believe that I am 50, most thought I was in my mid 30s to 40! - I certainly think my skin has EVERYTHING to do with this. My daughter's mid-20s friends often comment on how young I look. I will continue to use this product morning and evening for as long as they keep making it. It seems expensive at first, but one 4 oz. bottle lasts about 3 months, so really not that bad. I have added Vivier C serum 20% to my regimen in the morning and retinol cream in the evening, but will NEVER be without my Alphaderma.

This for me, like some of the other members is a 'holy grail' product.
We've all heard the benefits of it's key ingredients but they've tended to be sold in seperate products, with alphaderma it's all in one.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
and the magic long named peptite I won't even attempt to pronouce!
also contains collagen, olive and an spf.
First of all it's not a moisturiser - it's a wrinkle treatment. Plenty of people I know find that the product is enough but I have an oily skin and prefer to add a little something over the top as I tend to dehyrate.
One problem I had to begin with was putting foundation over the top, the product tended to 'ball up', this was corrected by making sure I massaged the product in rather than letting it sit on the skin.
I first noticed a difference in skin tone - I'm in my early 30's so not too many wrinkles. My mother who is in her late 50's saw a definite decrease in wrinkle size and her skin also looked more perky.
I'd recommend this but part of me wants to keep it a secret :-)

I've been using this product for the last 2 weeks or so (after using the samples included I've added the skin prep and eye treatment too) and I am extrememly happy with the results. No fragrance, no irritation and it's working on reducing lines, and my face and neck are firmer.
I'm very sensitive around the eyes, and this line of products is the only one I've ever tried that hasn't caused any irritation at all.
No problem applying makeup afterwards either.
It's costly, but if I don't spend any more money on products that don't work, this is going to be my "holy grail".

I hate to be the nay-sayer here, but I gave this product so much time and it never did anything at all for my skin. I wanted to like it....unfortunately Ill be going back to my kinerase products.

UPDATE: While this was working wonders on the fine lines around my eyes and the crescent by my mouth, the skin on my face and neck suddently appeared to be much worse!! My skin actually appeared to be starting to really sag!! It just seemed to happen too fast for it to be the normal aging process, so I started researching. I found that Acetyl Hexapeptide 3, also known as Argireline, one of the key ingredients in this product, may reduce wrinkles, it may also, in theory, increase facial sag because the neurotransmitters whose release Argireline inhibits, help maintain facial firmness. There are no long term studies on the effect of this chemical, so I decided to just stop using immediately and started using a pure DMAE serum twice a day (works in the exact opposite, stimulating not inhibiting facial muscles) along with my old HG moisturizer during the day and emu oil at night. 3 months later my skin is finally back to normal and in fact, much better than when using this. Now YMMV since everyone's skin responds very differently to the same actives, but keep an eye out for unusual skin slacking. This could be the culprit. I would recommend using as a spot treatment and not all over to see how it goes.
I couldn't agree more with the reviewer below. Over the past 2 yrs I've spent a small fortune trying every anti-aging product out there, included RX's. I've finally found my HG. This is the ONLY one that has given me noticable results without adverse affects of any kind. After using this religiously twice/day for 45 days, the one really noticable line I had (crescent shaped smile line on the left side of my mouth) is 75% less. Crows feet significantly less. Skin tone is much firmer and thicker. I use the enter JB regimen...cleanser (gentle and effective), skin prep (contains trace minerals that enhance the effects of this) and eye serum (noticable improvement of dark circles and reduce puffiness). On top of it all, I've built up to a 20% glycolic acid moisturizer (not made by JB). Wow...MAJOR improvement in skin tone and clarity. I can actually feel my face getting firmer as the day wears on! The price is extremely reasonable for the amount you get, the small quantity you have to use and the noticable results. I too would bathe in this stuff if I could!

I will never be without this cream! I'm an esthetician, so I'm very choosy about skincare products. There are a lot of product lines out there much better than the well known brands & this is one of them. I used this for 4 days before being asked what I was doing ... my laugh lines are relaxed & my skin is tighter & smoother in texture & tone. I found out about this stuff reading reviews for products with the topical muscle relaxant in them & this rated higher and less expensive than Perricone's 2 ounce $549 cream. I paid $129 for 4 & that's not bad IMO. I don't mind spending that if it works. The Perricone was definitely out of my price range. Usually I spend $50 for 1 ounce of cream that doesn't work great, so this comes out to be a bargain at $32.50 an ounce.
It has 10% argireline (a muscle relaxant that blocks the nerve signals controlling contraction of muscles) plus DMAE (muscle tone firming), Alpha Lipoic Acid (antioxidant), and Vitamin C ester, plus has UVA/UVB protection of 15. As someone who sees plenty of Botox jobs & tried it once (OK maybe twice), this doesn't give me a dead look. I look totally normal, but younger.
Anyway, I like the 4 ounce dark glass pump (sanitary & not wasteful) & the results can't be denied. If I could afford to, I'd bathe in it.
