Skin Care Review: Principal Secret with Argireline

by Nathalie B., Salt Lake City, UT, USA

Adverse Effects


Irritating and drying.

I am 37 and have started seeing fine lines under my eyes and the beginning of crows feet. I was excited to use the Principal Secret line after I saw the informercial, however I have been terribly disappointed. Contrary to what is stated in the infomercial, the face cleanser doesn't melt away make up (especially mascara), the moisturizing mask ended up drying my skin horribly and the eye care products really irritated the skin under and around my eyes (the skin on my cheekbones became so dry and irritated I could barely sleep at night). I also hate how the products are so concentrated that they don't spread well unless you add water on your fingers. Overall, I found all the products to be very drying to my skin (I have normal skin). The lines under my eyes are worse now, even though I stopped using the products a couple of weeks ago. When I called to cancel my automatic renewal order, the lady I talked to said a lot of customers have complained that the Argireline irritates their skin, so beware!

I don't recommend this product line at all. Very irritating and drying.

Price (paid by reviewer)
About $45.
