Product Details

The Merle Norman Skin Care Brilliant-C is a concentrated anti-aging serum with Vitamin C and brightening agents that is supposed to assist in diminishing age spots and other skin discolorations. The Vitamin C and other peptides in the serum claim to also reduce the appearance of fine lines. Fine Line Minimizer is intendeds to target trouble spots such as crow’s feet wrinkles, and contains Pro-Retinol and Vitamin C. It claims to diminish fine lines by 51%. The Merle Norman Skin Care Renew product is a treatment lotion that is made to enhance the skin’s natural exfoliation process, revitalize the appearance of the skin, and reduce the size of facial pores. The Energizing Concentrate contains “energizing ingredients” such as Ginseng which claim to stimulate and invigorate the skin for a noticeable improvement in skin texture. The AHA Intensive Complex is an anti-aging treatment that contains alpha-hydroxy fruit acids to improve skin tone, clarity, and dry patches. The Changing Skin Treatment is made to address changes in the skin associated with hormone changes and contains Pro-Retinol to treat wrinkles. The product also contains an SPF of 15 and claims to improve skin resiliency by 65% and to diminish wrinkles by 39% after just eight weeks. The Merele Norman Wrinkle Smoother Lips can be used to stop lip color from bleeding into the wrinkles around the lip area. This product contains Argireline which helps to minimize fine lines and prevent future wrinkles.

The Good

  • The Merle Norman Skin Care company has been around for a very long time and is a reputable establishment with a good online web presence.
  • Some of the anti-aging products contain proven anti-wrinkle ingredients such as Pro-Retinol and Argireline.

The Bad

  • The Merle Norman Skin Care website does not disclose the full ingredient list for any of their anti-aging products.
  • There are no customer testimonials available on the Merle Norman Skin Care website to demonstrate product effectiveness or level of customer satisfaction.
  • Products can not be purchased online on the Merle Norman Skin Care website.

The Bottom Line

Without a full list of ingredients, it is difficult to determine whether Merle Norman products would be effective in treating wrinkles. The price of the products are not disclosed online either, so you have to look up the closest Merle Norman studio to find out prices and to purchase products. Some websites do show favorable customer reviews for the LUXIVA line of anti-aging treatments however, we could not locate information such as results of clinical testing to verify the claims made about these Merle Norman Skin Care products.
