There are a proliferation of luxurious, anti-aging skincare lines you can consider, and each has something special. But Elizabeth Grants’ Biocollasis™ Complex Revival Cream for Day, and Renewal Cream for Night, (each 1.7 fl. oz,), plus a companion Revival Day Serum 1 fl. oz. are so impressively packaged, you might consider them just for the extravagant jars and tubes they are housed in. They may look regal, but will they treat your skin, royally?
The Biocallasis Complex Cell Vitality Revival Day cream is housed in a round lucite container with a gold insert that is faceted to reflect the light all around it. The Night Cream is housed in a similar vessel but with a silver insert. They look like they hold precious potions, and in fact, they really do! They all have some interesting ingredients that are worthy of your consideration, looking way past the pretty packaging. Like all Elizabeth Grant products, the Biocallasis Complex Cell Vitality Revival products have Elizabeth Grant’s exceptional, signature ingredient called “Torricelumn™” This exclusive moisturizing compound is her exclusive mix of ocean minerals, proteins, nutrients, vitamins and natural active ingredients, each extensively researched and specially selected for their individual restorative properties. Elizabeth Grant’s exclusive Neural Signal Activator (NSA) technology stimulates the surface skin sensors, helping to enhance the receptiveness of the skin and helping it to be gradually charged with the necessary stimulants to rediscover the mechanisms of young skin. The heart of NSA technology is the bio-engineered marine stem cells from the root of Torricelumn, that specifically target the building blocks responsible for young, firm and resilient skin. It also helps to capitalize on reviving the skin’s “memory” to help intensify the collagen network and help stimulate the development of new skin cells.
The Cell Vitality Revival Day and Night Serums (srp. $90.00 and $100) are in oxygen-free pumps tinted with a golden insert. The day serum is a Biocollasis™ Complex infused, light weight, and oil free serum targets that helps to revive skin memory, helping to restore skin bounce and elasticity. has a powerful active peptide that stimulates the synthesis of Collagen I, III & IV, and increases elastin. It also features wild pansy extract, preserves the skin’s suppleness and plasticity and prevents the appearance of wrinkles, plus 15 natural extracts, vitamins and enzymes to nourish the skin and protect it from the damaging effects of pollution, recognized as the second most important contributor to skin aging after sun exposure. Wild yam helps to rejuvenate the appearance of the skin, while eptides to help prevent and repair appearance of lines and wrinkles.The night serum contains a powerful active peptide that stimulates the synthesis of Collagen I, III & IV, and increases elastin. Mediterranean myrtle extract, limits the degradation of skin tissues and erases the first signs of aging. It also contains Natural Beech Buds, real embryos of plant life to help repair look of aging skin and rebuild the skin’s natural defense system; Shitake and Reishi Mushroom to work all night long targeting epidermal cell renewing activity while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and Peptides to help prevent and repair appearance of lines and wrinkles. If you’re wondering who these products are for, they are suggested as a preventative treatment for 35-50 years olds, and as a repair and maintenance treatment 50 and above and for mature skin. Use the serum day and evening before moisturizing.
The Day Cream (srp. $100.00) in the golden jar looks gorgeous, and it has a plastic inner seal. But once you pull that off, what is revealed is a lightweight but emollient cream that absorbs quickly, and is full of moisturizers that help revitalize the skin, while it lifts and firms. It protects and helps delay aging of essential epidermal skin cells, thereby helping to slow and combat the look of chronological aging. It also features extra Virgin Olive Oil selected for its exceptional skin moisturizing properties, and 17 natural extracts, vitamins and hydrators to keep skin hydrated and increase moisture levels through the day
The Night Cream, in the silver jar, is $130.00. It also does all the great stuff of the day cream but plant stem cells are combined with 9 intensive hydration boosters to synergistically reinforce the good works of the other products. It is enriched with natural Honey for intense nourishment and cellular repair plus Chapparal to help skin become more radiant. It also contains 20 natural extracts, vitamins and enzymes to help repair the skin all night long from the damaging effects of pollution, recognized as the second most important contributor to skin aging after sun exposure. The blend of these natural extracts helps to strengthen the skin’s ability to ward off environmental aggressors. Used with the serum and day cream, the result, over time, can be diminishing wrinkles and a firmer skin with a healthier glow.
The Bottom Line: These products are pricey, but considering the cost of high-tech ingredients these days, the total cost is an investment, but not completely out of the ball park for many people who are truly concerned about the aging of their skin. My real issue with these products is the packaging. As stunning as they are, it’s not a great idea to put your fingers into jars of face cream. If they are pricey products, that’s all the more reason to protect them for longer life, putting them into a delivery system that doesn’t automatically doom them to contamination from fingers, oxygen or other contaminants. True these come with spatulas, but most people lose them or don’t clean them correctly, either. The serum is in a clean pump, but the day and night creams, while rich, are not so thick that they couldn’t have been dispensed from a pump or push-button-type delivery system. As beautiful as the gold and silver jars are, an oxygen-free package would have been preferable.
