Beverly Hills MD: are their products truly different?

I recently watched a long infomercial online by Beverly Hills MD and was convinced to buy their lift and firm sculpting cream. I liked it a lot, it didn't irritate my ultra sensitive skin or cause my rosacea to flare. I don't know if it "lifted" so much. I bought the product because their sales pitch focused on their proprietary ingredients and technology. Is it true or do other manufacturers use the same things?


  • First of all, no cream will truly "lift and sculpt" your face so beware of products that imply that they do. Having said that, let's look at the claims they make:

    "Beverly Hills MD Lift + Firm Sculpting Cream’s exclusive formula contains select natural extracts and high-tech amino acids that work together to give skin a firmer, more lifted look. When combined, these active ingredients form a complex that can significantly reducing the appearance of loose, sagging skin by enhancing the skin’s internal support structure."

    You'll note that the actually say the product will give your skin a more lifted LOOK. This is just another appearance claim which is common for cosmetics. 

    What about the ingredients? Basically this is a moisturizing cream with some peptides (Acetyl Dipeptide-1 Cetyl Ester, Trifluoroacetyl Tripeptide.) There are plenty of other peptide containing creams on the market. The website says this product is different because it doesn't use "harsh" ingredients, it doesn't rely on collagen and elastin which don't penetrate skin, and it "enhances skin’s support structure by facilitating its natural rebuilding process, providing gentle results that last." (The peptides again.) That doesn't really sound all that different to me. 

    I couldn't find any clinical test data that might indicate how the product performs although the website does include before and after pictures (which don't prove anything by themselves.)

    At $120 per bottle this stuff isn't cheap! I don't see anything that would indicate it's worth that much but that, of course, is up to you. If you like it and can afford it, then go for it but I wouldn't recommend any spend so much money on this product.
