Hello beauties! I am so excited to bring you my latest review of Lifecell’s Anti-Aging Treatment which has been one of my go-to anti-aging treatments over the past four years, it’s simply an amazing product!
Lifecell diminishes the fine lines and wrinkles around my eyes, forehead, lips, and drastically reduces dark spots (hyper-pigmentation) to give me smoother and softer complexion.
It’s creamy, lightweight formula is fragrance free, hypo-allergenic, and very soothing to sensitive skin.
Is Lifecell a Free Trial?
Lifecell’s product is offered as a “30 day risk free trial” – but it’s not free (nothing is really free is it?).
However, they do give you 30 days to try the product before they bill you, which is plenty of time to receive it, try it for a couple of weeks, and decide whether or not you want to keep it. This is a skin care membership with a recurring auto-ship every 60 days.
Please be sure and read the bottom section to fully understand how the Lifecell membership works! I believe in FULL DISCLOSURE!
How Lifecell Works – Wrinkles Vanish
The most immediate result of Lifecell is how it fills in the deeper lines and wrinkles on your face making them far less noticeable.
Lifecell plumps and moisturizes your face by increasing collagen and elastin production to create a supple, youthful, and less “wrinkly” appearance.
Applying Lifecell to the face, neck and chest works quickly to smooth out wrinkles and also reduce any dark spots you might have in that area, and it also works great to firm and lift the neck!

How Lifecell Helps My Eyes
Lifecell is also an Eye Treatment and it’s gentle enough that I can use it on my entire eye area, lids and all. I use it underneath my eyes and it fills in those annoying fine lines and wrinkles, reduces puffiness, and diminishes those dreaded dark circles.
My eyes happen to be very sensitive, and sometimes even products specifically suited for the eye area cause my eyelids to sting or get puffy – not a good look when you’re trying to look younger!
Lifecell does not cause any stinging or burning, is very gentle on the eyes and works great as an eye shadow primer.
It works fast to perk up the whole eye area and smooth out the wrinkles so you can apply your makeup and look flawless!
Lifecell Reduces Hyper-Pigmentation – Kiss Brown Spots Goodbye
Lifecell drastically reduced the hyper-pigmentation along my jaw line to the point of almost disappearing.
Being raised in Florida, and at the beach just about every weekend playing volleyball, I’m no stranger to the sun. Unfortunately, UV damage is the main culprit for aging, dark spots and freckles, which is what happened to me.
Over the years, the hyper-pigmentation along my jaw line became darker each year and it was a huge source of insecurity when it came to my face, and nothing will make those pesky dark spots pop more quickly than a day out in the sun.
Lifecell Anti-Aging Treatment reduced my dark spots within a few weeks, and after a full three months, I could barely see them anymore.
You must wear SPF to maintain your results which is true for any skin lightening treatment and you should anyway to block those damaging rays!
I always wear a minimum of SPF 30 on a daily basis over Lifecell, and SPF 50 or higher when I am in the sun, and I encourage you to do the same.
Nothing, aside from smoking, is more damaging to your skin than the sun.
Other factors including hormones, medications, and acne scarring can also cause hyper-pigmentation, however it doesn’t matter what the cause of the brown spots are, the treatment is the same – to halt melanin production in its tracks.

The Science Behind Lifecell
Blood Flow = Youthful Looking Skin
So here’s my geek moment about the Nobel Prize-winning science behind how Lifecell works on a cellular level to boost collagen and elastin production.
Nitric Oxide dilates your capillaries to increase blood flow circulation giving your skin an instant youthful “boost,” but you can’t put nitric oxide directly onto your skin because it’s a gas, so it needs a messenger.
That messenger must be topically administered to your skin through Dithiolane-3-Pentanoic Acid (D3PA) – a naturally occurring compound produced in your body which decreases with age.
Lifecell has a high concentration of D3PA which produces an environment for which the nitric oxide can do it’s magic.
Lifecell also contains DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol), also known as “the facelift in a jar.” This powerful substance is known to prevent aging, liver spots and firms loose and sagging skin.
DMAE is one of the most potent ingredients in Lifecell which creates that immediate tightening effect on your face to lift and firm sagging skin.
Lifecell also contains moisturizing and soothing agents from natural sources such as oat kernel extract, shea butter, and hyaluronic acid which plump the skin full of moisture without feeling greasy.
I have combination skin and I don’t like heavy moisturizers that don’t absorb and feel like they’re sitting on top of your skin like a film. Lifecell has a lightweight, creamy texture.

When you order Lifecell’s Anti-Aging Treatment, you automatically become a VIP Member if you decide to keep it after the 30 day trial period.
With each VIP shipment, you get a TON of free stuff! Not just once, but with EACH shipment!
So here’s how it works, in your very first shipment, you will only receive the Lifecell Anti-aging Treatment. The next shipment (60 days later) would be your first “VIP shipment.”
With each VIP shipment, you will receive the Lifecell Anti-Aging Treatment, along with the Lifecell pH Balanced Face Wash, the Lifecell Cooling Under Eye Treatment, Lifecell Firming Body Butter or the Lifecell Firming Neck Treatment, and the Lifecell Beauty Balm spf 30 (tinted moisturizer).
Sometimes they include additional free gifts, once I received an expandable tote bag, and another time I received an electric facial brush (comparable to a Clarisonic).
Conclusion & Recommendation
I’ve used high end products for over 15 years, and Lifecell Anti-Aging Treatment has proven itself to be one of my all time favorites based on the results that I’ve experienced personally and how gentle it is on my skin.
It makes me look and feel younger by instantly smoothing my face of wrinkles, I love the wrinkle filling effect!
It also doubles as a hypo-allergenic eye treatment, diminishing wrinkles and reducing puffiness underneath the eyes and acting as an eye shadow primer.
Lifecell’s 120 Day Money Back Guarantee & Risk Free Trial
Is it really “FREE”?
Let me say something up front here – free trials are never free! Pay attention to this section so you understand how the Lifecell membership works.
I repeat – there is no such thing as a “FREE TRIAL” unless you walk up to a department store counter and ask for a sample.
I warn about free trials on my blog because there are a ton of Dr. Oz, Shark Tank, Kelly Rippa, Christie Brinkley and other celebrity cream scams out there operating out of foreign countries who offer 14 day free trials and then they bill you – and they are horrible creams and they make it impossible to cancel!
They don’t explain how the free trial works and then customers are upset when they are billed unexpectedly – and they should be upset! Lifecell is literally the only trial product I recommend because it is 30 days and they’ve been around for almost a decade.
How does the Trial work exactly?
Day 1 is the day you accept the trial, and they will bill you full price of $189 on the 30th day unless you call and cancel before that.
My advice is to mark your calendar the day you accept the trial so you know exactly when the 30 day window is up and also jot their phone number down which is (866)977-1412 and email is [email protected]
After they bill you on the 30th day for the first shipment, they will continue to send you additional product every 60 days thereafter as part of their VIP Membership program. After the first billing of $189, the price drops to $149.
Lifecell is a great product if you understand exactly how a skin care membership works – terrible if you think it’s just “free.”
The best place to enroll in the Lifecell membership is directly from the manufacturer’s official website to ensure the freshness, and the money back guarantee.
Purchases made on Amazon or E-bay etc. will not come with this return policy. Shipments can be sent both in and outside of the US directly from their lab in Miami.
Personal Note about the Lifecell Trial
I know I’m ranting about this, but the beauty cream scams that I warn about have tarnished the nature of free trials and some people genuinely want to try products before they commit.
I actually removed my Lifecell review altogether from my blog for a while because there was so much confusion.
But women are sending me emails every day about Lifecell and asking me how it works and whether I’ve used the product, so I decided to put it back up so if you’re considering it, you can understand if fully.
Anyone who accepts the Lifecell trial through my links should NOT be surprised when your are billed $189 on the 30th day.
READ the terms and conditions that they post on the Lifecell website.
I am giving you ALL the facts, ma’am! 😉 I believe in FULL DISCLOSURE.
It’s a great product but I’ll say it for the one hundredth time – there’s no such thing as a free trial without an eventual billing.

How Women Found This Review:
and does lifecell work on 60 year old
Wrinkles are disguised
I’m pleased with Lifecell. It fills in my lines and wrinkles making my face look smoother. Even though yes it does wash off, applying makeup is much easier using this product. I used to use a separate product for “wrinkle filling.” This is anti aging at its finest as well as being a filler. I do feel younger and I’ve used it for several months. Happy, happy.
Lifecell skincare line
I use the ph balanced face wash, anti aging treatment and eye cream daily and have for two years. My skin has improved. My wrinkles are less noticeable, and my redness and dryness have gone away. I am a happy customer. The neck firming cream also helps with crepey skin and lifts and firms my neck.
I am receiving these products every 60 days. I am impressed with how they are working for me. I do have deeper wrinkles around my eyes and the Lifecell does a good job at smoothing them out. I received the Neck Firming treatment and have been using it on my neck and chest. It firms up the “turkey neck” for lack of a better term. The face wash is gentle and I can use to remove eye makeup. I enjoy the free gifts that they send with the membership. I am a happy customer so I wanted to share my experience. Thank you.
Lifecell is working for me
I ordered the 30 day trial of Lifecell and I have to say, this cream works like nothing I have ever tried. I am impressed with how it smooths my under eye wrinkles the moment I apply. I have been using it about 3 weeks and I don’t plan on cancelling the trial. I am already seeing a better skin tone, my redness has decreased. I wish to try the other products they offer with the special VIP membership, including the face wash and neck firming cream. Lifecell has exceeded my expectations and I’m an older gal! Thank you Rachel
Worth every penny
Hi Rachel… I’m almost 70 years old and have been using LifeCell for about 18 months now, my skin looks amazing, so many compliments… This skin care line is fabulous and worth every cent, so glad to see it’s your #1 pick. I also like the fact South Beach Skincare has no problem with customizing orders to suit the requirement of the client and not the other way around.

Q: How do you think Lifecell works on deep wrinkles are the eyes? I read your review about skin cream marketing in general and that most free trial/celebrity endorsed creams are fraudulent...but Lifecell seems to have the same marketing strategy and are offering a "free trial". It has the same appearance as tru belleza and all the others. Is it different somehow? Thanks so much, Deborah -Deborah
I want to explain in detail why the Lifecell trial shouldn\'t be compared to these short term wrinkle cream scams because I do get asked this question a lot. Lifecell is offered as a 30 day trial, and I could count on one hand the creams that actually offer a legitimate, 30 day trial - there are very few of them. However there are HUNDREDS of these 12 day wrinkle cream scams (such as Tru Belleza - just read their terms and conditions).
I\'ve been recommending Lifecell for almost 5 years, long before all these short-term free trial scams started popping up everywhere on the internet using Dr. Oz and other celebrities for their misleading advertising. South Beach Skincare is a reputable manufacturer that has been around for almost a decade. They have quality skin care and their product is amazing!
You have 30 days (not 12 days) to try Lifecell. If you are unhappy at any time during that 30 days, you can call Lifecell 24 hours a day, and be answered by a friendly customer service rep right here in the U.S.A. Lifecell also comes with a 120 day money back guarantee (that\'s four months to try it risk free for a full refund if you\'re not happy).
If you decide you love the cream, you\'ll be sent the product every two months and the price drops to $149, plus you\'ll be sent a ton of free skin care with every VIP shipment (face wash, BB cream, cooling eye treatment, neck firming cream and/or body butter).
I\'ve been a Lifecell VIP member for years now and I absolutely love their products and getting my package every two months. I feel that a 30 day trial (with a reputable company) gives you plenty of time to try the product to see if you actually like it. And when you need customer service, they are available. Not like these scam companies that give bad phone numbers, have no refund policy, have poor quality ingredients (who knows what\'s even in them because they don\'t publish their ingredients), and keep changing the name of their products and flipping the links because ultimately they are just scam artists.
I never used to get questions like this before these scams tarnished the image of a true trial. Anyhow, I hope this clears things up. I wouldn\'t be recommending a product that didn\'t live up to its promise with great customer service standards. My blog would not survive! :) Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com

Q: Hi Rachel, I had a question about Lifecell. I am interested in receiving Lifecell's other skin care through VIP membership. I want to try their face wash and cooling eye treatment and the spf cream would be good for those days where I'm outside. I have sensitive, dry skin and I'm almost 50 so I'm fighting wrinkles and would like to reduce them. How will those other products do with my skin type? Thanks so much, I'm looking forward to trying these products. I don't mind receiving a shipment every 60 days, especially if they're sending other good products. It'll keep me from having to run out to the mall to buy skin care. I don't have time.... -Linda B
