Skin Care Review: Principal Secret Reclaim

by Martin


Moisturizing, wrinkle reduction.

Not enough firming properties

The Reclaim line is the latest of several put out under the Principal Secret brand. It's for more mature skin and contains wrinkle-fighting ingredients such as argilene. The day cream, night cream and improved firming eye cream are quite good. They are light formulations but moisturizing. I noticed a marked decrease in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Overall, this will give you pretty skin, which is saying a lot. I've been using the basic products for about 15 years and supplement with specialty treatments from other lines as needed, and people generally have thought I was five to ten years younger than I am. But as I've hit menopause, I'm finding the line does not have much in the way of firming treatments. The neck cream has some firming properties but isn't strong enough to deal with real jowls. It also has a weekly enzyme exfoliant, but I'd prefer more in the way of daily exfoliation. The line until recently was limited to the basics, but it has been branching out into products such as twice weekly treatments, so maybe more is to come.

Solid basic skin care at a good price.
