My Review: LifeCell Skin Care (2021) – Scam Or Not?

It’s time to review LifeCell Skin Care – which is a skin care line that targets any visible signs of aging.

There are 6 products included in the pack, which I will describe one by one.

Do you think it is worth it to buy them all?

Or is it part of their strategy – to make you to spend more?

Let’s find out the truth behind this set, to see if there’s any chance that it’s a scam or not.

Note: This review is based on my own experience + research on LifeCell Skin Care.

Review Summary

Full Name: LifeCell Anti-Aging Treatment by South Beach Skincare Inc.

Product Type: Anti-Aging Set made of 6 products

  • Tightening Treatment
  • Under-Eye Treatment
  • Cleanser
  • Serum
  • BB Cream
  • Mask

Best Actual Prize: Around $530 (Full Set)

Cheapest Place To Buy: Amazon

Designed For: Treating signs of aging– it claims to:

  • restore a youthful appearance
  • eliminate fine lines
  • brighten skin

My Rating: 3 out of 10

Recommended?: Not really. I don’t recommend a set of products with so many negative reviews.

Instead, I personally suggest you go for the best anti-aging cream from the market.

It’s simply a much better option (in terms of quality/price).

 

What I Liked About It

  • Full list of ingredients given out
  • Has its own official website
  • Lots of authentic customer reviews available

 

What I Didn’t Like About It

  • Way too expensive
  • Not as effective as it claims
  • Causes some serious side effects
  • No discount for the whole set
  • Products are only sold individually
  • Not suitable for all skin types

 

 


LifeCell Skin Care In A Nutshell


LifeCell South Beach Skincare is a brand that focuses on body care.

But for this review, I will focus on its face products, that include:

  1. All-In-One Skin-Tightening Treatment
  2. Cooling Under-Eye Treatment
  3. Neck Firming Serum
  4. pH Balanced Cleanser
  5. BB Cream
  6. Purifying Mask

Now, I first expected to see these products offered in a set/larger pack.

But unfortunately, these are only sold separately (both on Amazon and LifeCell’s Official Website).

And that’s surely not an advantage for the buyers (since you end up paying quite a lot).

So if you ask me, there are some reasons why it’s not really worth buying this set:

  • can cause serious side effects
  • limited customer reviews
  • very expensive
  • has a small quantity
  • not meant for all skin types

And most importantly – 3 of the 6 products have the same benefits as the other 3.

So I don’t recommend going for the entire set, if any.

Just get the skin, under-eye and neck treatments – they would do.

The others ones help in about the same ways, so there’s no need to spend some extra money.

But even so – given the feedback of people who tried it, I don’t recommend this set.

 


#1 – Claims & Producer


I looked for the general info about this set – in order to give you these facts:

  • how it works
  • company behind
  • skin problem it targets
1. Claims

Most of these 6 products claim to be “Dermatologist Recommended. Hypoallergenic. Non-Comedogenic.”

And according to their promises – they can:

  • reduce wrinkles
  • smooth the texture
  • brighten skin tone
  • firm the skin
  • remove impurities
  • enhance appearance

Also – the description behind every product says that it is suitable for all skin types.

Again, I strongly disagree with this statement (which is also made by a lot of brands).

That’s because every skin reacts differently to a certain product.

Also – the products are said to be 100% Cruelty-Free (by PETA).

2. Company Behind

The company behind this set is LifeCell by South Beach Skincare Inc., based in Hollywood, Fl.

It’s totally different and should not to be confused with South Beach Skin Labs.

Here’s some general info I found on LifeCell’s website:

  • sells products for the face, body, supplement and hair
  • textures vary from serum, cream, balm, toner and lotion
  • all products promote a youthful glow inside and out

Also – the brand claims that everything is made in favor of the environment.

This includes the ingredients used, up to the packaging of the products.

Now, you can find the address and contact details on their website.

So overall – it looks like a legit brand for me.

 


#2 – Formula (6 out of 10)


After looking into every product’s list of ingredients – here’s what I noticed:

  • all have some strong anti-aging components
  • 2-3 products have almost identical ingredients
  • their formulas have a lot of plant extracts

So let’s take a further look at each item’s key ingredients.

1. All-In-One Skin-Tightening Treatment

This particular product claims to be an all-in-one anti-aging treatment to reduce wrinkles.

It contains these 2 main ingredients:

  • Retinol – minimizes wrinkles [1]
  • Hyaluronic Acid – retains skin moisture

Now, I consider Retinol as a top anti-aging compound.

So this product looks good (on paper).

However, it doesn’t contain too many varied ingredients overall.

And even though Retinol is a very potent compound – it’s a pretty classic (and potentially dangerous) one.

 

2. Cooling Under-Eye Treatment

Obviously, this cream is made for the under-eye area.

Its main goals are to reduce fatigue signs and fine lines.

Here are the major compounds you can find inside it:

  • Vitamins C & E – brightens the skin
  • Sodium Hyaluronate – attracts moisture in the skin cells [2]

Plus, it also contains the 2 ingredients from the previous cream (Retinol and Hyaluronic Acid).

However, this cream has almost the same compound as the first one.

That’s not very promising, to be honest.

Since you’re paying for 2 different products – why would you get them, since they contain the same stuff?

Just because they are designed for 2 different areas?

That’s not a very good reason, to be honest – because you can easily apply the first cream in the under-eye area as well.

 

3. Neck Firming Serum

This product is specifically made for firming the skin in the neck area.

It targets and lessens the skin sagging (also known as the “turkey neck”).

In order to do this – it contains 2 main substances (other than its secondary ones):

  • Titanium Dioxide – filters UV light
  • Coenzyme Q10 – reduces sun damage [3]

Most of people don’t really care about the neck area.

They all focus on facial wrinkles, which is totally understandable.

But if you ask me – the neck needs the same attention, because they both have a delicate skin.

 

4. pH Balanced Cleanser

If you are into skin care routine, you should instantly know that this is a facial wash.

The #1 goal of facial washes is to balance the skin’s pH and remove impurities.

These benefits are given by ingredients like:

  • Plant Extracts – provide antioxidants
  • Glycerin –  traps moisture to the skin [4]

To be honest, the majority of this product’s components are plant-derived.

So it gains a very extra points, compared to the other 5 products.

 

5. BB Cream

Most of you are surely familiar with BB creams.

They are meant to provide protection and reduce the appearance of imperfections.

In terms of composition – there are 2 ingredients that stand out:

  • Titanium Dioxide – offers protection against harmful sun rays
  • Castor Oil – treats sunburn [5]

Now, this cream can be used as a base for your light makeup.

But don’t expect too much coverage from it – because it’s not an actual foundation.

Still, I found it quite useful as a makeup base.

 

6. Purifying Mask

Lastly, this product is a clay mask that claims to give you a radiant and glowing skin.

It does that by removing impurities and dead skin cells.

Now, it has 2 main these compounds:

  • Herbal Extracts – deliver nutrients to the skin
  • Bentonite – detoxifies the skin [6]

Usually, clay masks are good if you want an extra help in clarifying your skin.

But they’re not an amazing anti-aging treatment themselves.

That’s why this product’s effect isn’t as potent as that of the others.


Conclusion

Honestly – these products have some very similar list of components:

  • most are plant-derived
  • some also contain classic ingredients
  • their overall formula is pretty much the same

So if you ask me – I don’t think you need to buy all 6 products.

In my view, the first 3 ones are the most essential.

As for the others, you can easily skip them (as they have no unique benefit).

Even so – the first 3 products are not something I would necessarily recommend.

 


#3 – Consistency & Dosage (6 out of 10)


Here’s what you should know about these products’ texture and instructions.

1. Consistency

Based on my research, some products have a very clear description .

Let’s take a quick look at each item briefly:

  1. All-In-One Skin-Tightening Treatment – beige and slightly thick texture
  2. Cooling Under-Eye Treatment – slightly beige and lightweight
  3. Neck Firming Serum – cloudy white and slightly sticky
  4. pH Balanced Cleanser – clear to cloudy gel-like liquid
  5. BB Cream – light beige and slightly thick
  6. Purifying Mask – grainy beige and thick

As you can tell – all these 6 products have a rather thick consistency.

Also, based on the ingredients present, the whole set probably has an earthy smell.

But there’s the only info I could find there.

That’s also because of the limited customer reviews and product photos/descriptions.

2. Dosage

Luckily, each product has specific instructions on how to use it.

Now – let’s analyze the ingredients of the 3 main products.

  • All-In-One Skin-Tightening Treatment
  1. Clean the skin and pat dry.
  2. Apply to the target areas (eyes, forehead, cheeks, chin and neck).
  3. Dab the product lightly all over the face.
  4. Use daily every morning and evening.

  • Cooling Under-Eye Treatment
  1. Use the metal applicator and gently apply a small amount of the product.
  2. Pat until the product is fully absorbed.
  3. For best result, refrigerate it first before using.

  • Neck Firming Serum
  1. Clean and dry your neck and upper chest area.
  2. Apply your desired amount to your fingertips.
  3. Apply it in the desired areas in an outward motion towards the ears.
  4. Wait for it to dry.

Now, the whole set contains 6 products but I only recommend using 3 of them.

But even using these 3 products will take a while.

That’s why I’m not such a big fan of sets.

There are products that bring in the same results as this 3-steps combination – but they only come in one product.

So I would surely go for something like that instead.

 


#4 – Results (4 out of 10)


To check out how this set work, I looked into the reviews of people who actually tried them.

I always do this – in order to avoid giving you a biased view of any product.

Note: I only analyzed authentic reviews, not promotional or fake ones.

1. Positive Opinions

I found some customer reviews on Amazon and on LifeCell’s website.

The overall ratings of these products (official website) are all 4.5/5 stars (except for one).

And for Amazon, here’s each product’s rating (out of 5 stars):

  1. All-In-One Skin-Tightening Treatment – 3.9
  2. Cooling Under-Eye Treatment – 4.1
  3. Neck Firming Serum – 4.1
  4. pH Balanced Cleanser – 4.3
  5. BB Cream – 4.0
  6. Purifying Mask – 4.0

Well, these ratings are quite decent so far – but wait until you see what people say about these items.

These are what satisfied buyers like about this set:

  1. Some users say their skin feels more nourished and hydrated.
  2. Others notice their skin looks younger.
  3. The rest feel their skin became smoother and the fine lines are reduced.

To be honest, I consider these positive reviews quite generic and not so specific.

I didn’t really feel like all of these are authentic, because they sound like paid ads, to be honest.

2. Negative Opinions

At first, I expected that the negative reviews are only related:

  • to poor customer service
  • no real effect

But to my shock, things are a lot worse:

  1. A lot of people say that there are no effects at all.
  2. Some experience pimples, breakouts and burning sensations.
  3. Many also state that these products are a rip-off or fake.
  4. 1-2 people experienced eye swelling, skin lesions and severe skin issues.

I didn’t expect all of these complaints, to be honest.

That’s because the products themselves look rather promising.

But that’s surely a lesson – not trusting any product based on its outside appearance.


Conclusion

I personally don’t have a great opinion on these products, judging after its overall feedback. 

I don’t want to recommend products that can harm your skin in the long run.

The praises these products got are not enough for me to trust them.

Since it has some many serious complaints, I wouldn’t give it a try.

For this time, I don’t want to say that it’s up to you.

Instead – I strongly suggest trying a better alternative, which is safer and more effective.

 

 


#5 – Side Effects (3 out of 10)


These products don’t have such a huge number of negative reviews.

But as I said, the ones they do have are pretty scary and significant.

Regarding side effects, there were only a few complaints overall.

But once again – they were quite scary as well:

  • eye irritation/swelling
  • formation of skin lesions
  • severe contact dermatitis
  • acne and breakouts

These things are very serious, because things can get really worse.

So if you ask me, I advise you to stay away from products like these.

There are a lot better alternatives out there that won’t harm your skin in any way.

 


#6 – Price (1 out of 10)


There’s no way to deny that this product line is super expensive.

So if you ask me, all the items made this brand are very overpriced, so they’re not a good deal at all.

1. The Exact Price

You buy LifeCell’s products on Amazon and on the official website.

And so far, there’s no price difference between the two (except for the cleanser and serum).

Now – let’s focus on the price of each item from LifeCell’s website:

  1. All-In-One Skin-Tightening Treatment (2.54 oz) costs $189
  2. Cooling Under-Eye Treatment (0.67 oz) costs $79
  3. Neck Firming Serum (1.50 oz) costs $139
  4. pH Balanced Cleanser (2.00 oz) costs $39
  5. BB Cream (1.00 oz) costs $47
  6. Purifying Mask (2.50 oz) costs $78

On Amazon, the pH Balanced Cleanser costs $25, while the Neck Firming Serum is $119.

If you’re after free shipping, you can only get that from Amazon.

But if you want to replenish every 30,60, 90 or 120 days, you can get that on LifeCell’s website as well.

Again, these products are not offered in a set and you need to buy them individually (a total of $571).

That’s a huge downside, if you ask me.

Regardless of the perks you get from which wesbite you buy them from, everything is still pricey.

So I still think that it’s not a good deal at all.

2. Competitors’ Price

I only want to compare these items with my #1 recommended anti-aging product.

I’m talking about Kollagen Intensiv:

  1. Kollagen Intensiv’s formula is very potent and effective.
  2. Its ingredients are backed-up with science and proven to be beneficial.
  3. LifeCell Skin Care’s ingredients are mostly plant-based.
  4. 2-3 products from the line have the same compounds and differs only in texture.
  5. Normally, Kollagen Intensiv costs $60 but you can find it for only $36.
  6. LifeCell Skin Care’s set for the face costs $571.
  7. Based on the amount of product you get, it looks like it won’t last long.

Honestly – you really don’t need a lot of products to get the best results.

I still believe that less is more – that’s why I consider Kollagen Intensiv as the best option.

It’s much cheaper but at the same time, it delivers all the anti-aging benefits that you need.


Conclusion

These products are very expensive overall.

Not to mention their quantity – which is too little for the price, in my view.

Again, there’s no promo pack for the whole set and you need to buy it individually.

But as I said – you don’t really need to buy all of these products.

There’s a much better alternative out there that won’t hurt your pocket.

 

 


#7 – LifeCell Skin Care In 3 Ideas


Here’s how I would sum up my opinion on this skin care set.

1. Weak Formula

These products’ composition doesn’t look too bad at first sight:

  • has some strong anti-aging ingredients
  • has a lot of plant extracts
  • it’s cruelty-free

The formula doesn’t look too impressive at first.

But after reading the reviews, I became even more sure of this.

There’s a big possibility that its effect is only on paper.

2. Negative Side Effects

This set of products has a pretty high risk of side effects, apparently.

Some people experienced the following:

  • pimples and breakouts
  • formation of skin lesions
  • severe contact dermatitis
  • eye irritation/swelling

Unlike in other anti-aging creams, these reactions are serious.

So this set doesn’t seem the most trustworthy to me, at least from this point of view.

3. Overpriced

To be honest –  it’s not practical to spend roughly around $571 for the whole face set.

I’m pretty sure it’s not worth it.

There are a lot of better alternatives in the market that don’t have hefty price tags.

Overall – these 6 items cost too much but deliver little or nothing at all.

 


My Verdict – Worth It Or Not?


Short answer: Not really.

At first. it looks promising but as I managed to dig into the details, here’s what I found:

  1. Crazy expensive
  2. Weak form of ingredients
  3. Has some severe secondary reactions
  4. Not for all skin types
  5. Can’t be bought as a set

Overall – I think these items are not worth it and not practical to buy at all.

And based on their feedback, effectiveness and side effects, I will surely not buy any of them.

Not even the 3 ones that seem the best.

What do I recommend instead? A cream called Kollagen Intensiv:

  • cheaper in price
  • potent formula
  • best forms of ingredients
  • many positive reviews
  • recommended by specialists
  • helps with anti-aging

It’s quite obvious that I consider Kollagen Intensiv the best choice compared to LifeCell’s Skin Care.

Besides the lower price, you will also get a lot of great anti-aging benefits.

So it’s clearly superior from many points of view.
