The Resurgence line of anti-aging products is produced by the Murad Company. Dr. Murad is a dermatologist with years of clinical experience under his belt and 17 dermatological patents. According to the company website, the Resurgence line is designed to "target the effects of hormonal aging". It claims to do so by “promoting healthy cell turnover”, improving firmness and elasticity in the skin and restoring moisture. This line is sold in a set that includes the Renewing Cleansing Cream, Age-Diffusing Serum and Age-Balancing Night Cream.
As a special offer at the time of this review, when you place your order for the Resurgence set of products, you will also receive the Glow Bonus Pack. This pack consists of the Renewing Eye Cream, Acne Spot Treatment and Sheer Lustre Day Moisturizer. It also includes Dr. Murad's Skin Health Guide with tips and information for keeping your skin in peak condition. This company does provide a 60-day money back guarantee on Resurgence, and there are a few customer testimonials and before and after photos. Dr. Murad’s Resurgence is also endorsed by newswoman and spokeswoman Joan Lunden, and the actress/author Josie Bissett.
The complete ingredient lists for all of the products are listed on the Resurgence website. The Resurgence Renewing Cleansing Cream does contain sodium hyaluronate, which has been potential to be effective in hydrating the skin and creating a smoother appearance. However, no other anti-aging ingredients were found in this item. The Resurgence Age-Diffusing Serum includes both acetyl hexapeptide-3 (argireline) and palmitoyl pentapeptide-3 (matrixyl). Both of these substances have been found to be effective anti-aging ingredients.
Argireline has been called “the Botox alternative” because it can inhibit the release of neurotransmitters and relax facial tension that may lead to lines and wrinkles. Matrixyl stimulates the production of collagen, which is lost as we age and results in wrinkles and sagging skin. It is good to see both of these ingredients in a single product. We did not find any proven anti-aging ingredients in the Resurgence night cream, and the website lists this product primarily for the purpose of moisturizing the skin overnight. Furthermore, we found some synthetic ingredients in this formula that may be irritating for some skin types.
- Complete ingredient lists are available for all of the Resurgence products.
- Customer testimonials and before and after photos are available on the company website.
- The Resurgence products must be purchased in a set, which does not make this a cost effective venture. This is especially true if one product runs out before another.
- There are synthetic potential skin irritants in some of the Resurgence formulas.
- The purchase of the product signs you up for the club, where you will automatically receive more products and a bill every three months.
The Bottom Line
If you can get past the requirement of purchasing a complete set of Resurgence products every time, and the cost involved with this endeavor, there are some promising ingredients listed in some of the Resurgence formulas. However, Argireline and Matrixyl 3000 are both available in competitor’s formulas that do not require the purchase of a full product set to get the one effective item.
