TreSkinRX SYSTEM PRODUCT REVIEW

PRESENTATION: Cleanser – plastic pump bottle, Creams – plastic jars
TEXTURE & SCENT: See individual product
SKIN TYPE: All Skin Types
KEY FEATURES: The flagship product in the TreSkinRX product collection is a patented daily exfoliant, EX3. EX3 works to remove dead skin cells, as well as accelerate tissue regeneration and new cell growth. The active ingredients within our formulations are delivered deep into the skin through a 100% organic base of pharmaceutical-grade aloe vera making it one of the strongest over-the-counter exfoliants available. EX3 is similar in strength to a doctor’s office peel yet safe enough for daily at-home use.
QUICK REVIEW: The star product (EX3 Daily Renewing Exfoliant) for this direct marketing brand makes up for the mediocre ancillary products. Results are noteworthy, but a longer trial would be needed to determine true effectiveness.
TreSkinRX PURIFYING CLEANSER
$50 / Registered Customers: $42.50
Purifying Cleanser is a clear, slightly yellowish gel that foams well and rinses clean. The formula is fragrance free but has a notable lavender scent. Its fairly pricey for a standard foaming gel cleanser, but it is gentle enough to be used around the eyes without burning, which is hard to find. It can remove light makeup – but for those that use a heavier or long-wear base, a pre-cleansing product and eye makeup remover is needed. It leaves skin clean without feeling stripped.
Its the perfect companion for the EX3 Daily Renewing Exfoliant since it does not contain any active ingredients.
TreSkinRX TRIPLE DEFENSE DAY MOISTURIZER WITH SPF 15
$41.18 / Registered Customers: $35
This is a fairly standard moisturizer with SPF 15 sunscreen. It has a medium weight texture, absorbs well and has a distinct lavender and sunscreen scent. It wore well under makeup, but after a few days it gave me a little rash (I’m allergic to sunscreen, so these results may not be typical).
This is an important step while using the system since exfoliation can make skin more sun sensitive. I would prefer to use a higher, chemical-free SPF product – but if you have minimal exposure and no sensitivity to sunscreen, this is a great and moderately priced basic SPF day cream.
TreSkinRX NIGHT REPAIR MOISTURIZER
$44.12 / Registered Customers: $37.50
A basic moisturizer that is formulated to preserve and restore skin’s natural moisture. The Night Repair has a gel-cream texture but feels emollient (if a bit heavy – but soaks in) on the skin and has the same lavender scent as the other products. This works well in conjunction with the EX3 Exfoliant (which I preferred to use on its own) since it doesn’t have any active ingredients – but it wasn’t exceptional enough to deserve a higher rating.
TreSkinRX EX3 DAILY RENEWING EXFOLIANT
This daily exfoliant combines Aloe Vera, L-Ascorbic Acid (Vit. C) and Glycolic Acid to remove dead skin, activate the production of collagen and reduce fine lines, wrinkles and pore size. Of the products included in the trial set, I used this the most consistently – AM and PM.
EX3 has a light creamy base that incorporates Aloe Vera which naturally has antibacterial and healing properties. In Hawaii, we use Aloe straight from the plant on sunburns! But raw Aloe is sticky, gooey and doesn’t smell very nice. EX3 combines Aloe with encapsulated L-Ascorbic Acid (the little green beads in the cream) which burst upon application. The cream absorbs quickly and didn’t irritate my skin, nor does it have a distinctive scent like the other products. My face did not burn or get irritated, in fact prior to the SPF irritation, my skin was looking less red.
After using this for 2 weeks, here’s the results:
TreSkinRX 2 Week Results (L-R): Before, After 2 weeks of using EX3 Daily Exfoliant AM & PM.
At the end of 2 weeks my pores were smaller and the texture overall was refined. The only downside was the SPF product gave me a rash, so my skin is a little bumpy in the after photo – and this can take weeks to correct. I’m uncertain what the long term effects would be since I only used the products for 2 weeks.
*Please note that all skin types react differently to more active products and those with sensitive skin and other conditions may not have the same results. The product is formulated to assist with acne, sensitive skin, eczema and rosacea, but always check with your physician/dermatologist if you have a chronic skin condition.
TreSkinRX EX3 DAILY RENEWING EXFOLIANT
TreSkinRX is a direct marketing brand – but is rather low maintenance and there isn’t a big upfront investment like with Rodan + Fields*. As far as the products go, I can see the system working for women who don’t do regular exfoliation or just want a simple and straight forward routine. Of the four products included in the kit, the PURIFYING CLEANSER and EX3 DAILY RENEWING EXFOLIANT are the best and worth a closer look. I’m sure over a longer period of time, the EX3 would yield more impressive results that what I experienced.
*Cosmetic Monster doesn’t recommend or endorse either program.
