VENeffect Anti-Aging Intensive Moisturizer | Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

As you may remember from my recent VENeffect Anti-Aging Lip Treatment review, I am completely in awe of VENeffect products. VENeffect makes ultra high quality luxury skincare products that are antioxidant-rich anti-aging power-brokers. It was created by two sisters, Rebecca and Cecil Booth, who wanted to created effective anti-aging products that delivered on their claims, and that counteracted the effects that hormonal fluctuations and changes have on the skin.

About the Founders,

VENeffect was founded by sisters Rebecca Booth, M.D., a nationally recognized gynecologist and hormonal wellness expert, and Cecil Booth, a skin care expert with twenty years of beauty industry experience. They discovered that while all women are affected by hormonal aging, there is little awareness of this universal issue and few solutions in the beauty world. VENeffect is the breakthrough anti-aging solution they developed to reverse the signs of hormonal aging and restore skin to peak hormonal vitality.

Many influences affect the aging of skin, including sun damage, hereditary factors, and simple chronological aging. For women, one of the least discussed, but most compelling ways we age are the shifts and changes in hormones throughout the month and as we age. In particular, the decline of the feminizing hormone estrogen leads to a number of challenges, including for our skin. As the influence of estrogen declines from its peak in our twenties, our skin loses elasticity resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and loss of skin tone. VENeffect was created by two sisters, one a gynecologist and hormonal wellness specialist, and the other a beauty industry expert, with the goal to help reverse lost elasticity directly related to the decline in estrogen as we age. Their discovery is an exclusive and highly effective complex of 100% natural plant-based phytoestrogens to safely and effectively reverse the signs of aging that are directly the result of decreasing estrogen; to preserve and restore the youthful glow of healthy, vibrant skin.

Who can use VENeffect: "Women of all ages and all skin types. Collagen peaks along with estrogen in our twenties and begins a decline that accelerates in our thirties, forties and fifties, at which point our fertility function as women is programmed to retire. VENeffect has the ability to both preserve and restore collagen and will enhance the skin of women at any age."

How it Works: "As we age, the influence of estrogen declines resulting in loss of collagen and elasticity in our skin and increasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles."

Claims: "VENeffect is the only anti-aging skin care line formulated with a unique and powerful blend of 100% natural phytoestrogens to enhance collagen and improve elasticity in skin. The small molecular size of phytoestrogens allows them to easily penetrate the skin and bond with estrogen receptors present in both the dermis and the epidermis in order to stimulate collagen production."

The Result: "VENeffect reverses the signs of aging to preserve and restore the healthy glow of skin at peak vitality."
VENeffect created a proprietary formula, which is a blend of 100% natural plant-based phytoestrogens, that help reverse the effects that hormonal aging has on the skin. As we age, our estrogen levels decline, and lower levels of estrogen results in skin becoming less taut and toned than it was in our youth, and sadly this decline begins in our twenties!

In addition to being highly effective, VENeffect products have the distinction of luxurious textures that make their use a very pleasurable tactile experience. My latest VENeffect obsession is their Anti-Aging Intensive Moisturizer, and if ever there was a luxurious moisturizer, this is it!

VENeffect Anti-Aging Intensive Moisturizer is an extremely hydrating, yet incredibly lightweight and fast absorbing facial cream. It has a silky-smooth ultra luxurious texture that is rich enough to impart high levels of moisture, but it is also non-comedogenic and works beautifully on my normal to combination skin without ever causing any breakouts.

After using VENeffect day and night for over a month I noticed that my skin was hydrated, fine lines were plumped, my skin was lifted, the texture was even, and it had a distinctive dewy glow. In fact, my skin appeared luminous without the need for an added serum or beauty oil, which was a big surprise since I always depend on their use to provide added nourishment and luminosity. N.B. After my initial testing, I did add my serums and beauty oils back into my skincare regimen, and they work beautifully in conjunction with this lovely cream.

My monthly hormonal cycle often results in a unwanted breakouts, and I will say that I haven't had any since I began using VENeffect Anti-Aging Intensive Moisturizer. I can't be certain if this is a result of using VENeffect, or whether I just didn't happen to get any pimples during my cycle, but I wouldn't be surprised if this cream contributed to a breakout-free cycle because their phytoestrogen technology offsets the effects of hormonal aging, and my breakouts are generally a response to hormonal shifts during my cycle.

According to VENeffect,

This super-hydrating, luxurious moisturizer is richly formulated with the VENeffect exclusive advanced phytoestrogen technology, along with peptides, proteins and nourishing ingredients to dramatically increase skin's elasticity as it reverses the signs of hormonal aging.

  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brightens and evens out skin tone
  • Restores skin to the healthy glow of peak vitality

Overall Assessment: I'm so impressed by the VENeffect Anti-Aging Intensive Moisturizer and Anti-Aging Lip Treatment that I really want to try their Firming Phyto-Lift Serum, Firming Neck & Décolleté Creme and the Anti-Aging Eye Treatment! Given my ridiculously large skincare collection, I don't often feel compelled to try all of the products from the lines that I love, but every once in a while I am so impressed by a line that I really want to try everything that they make. Thankfully, VENeffect is very well-edited line, but it is also one of the few lines that I have tried that is so impressive that I really want to try everything that they make! This is definitely an obsession-worthy cream that earns an A+ in my book.

    1. I was pretty blown away, actually. It isn't even a claim that they make, but there is something about the phytoestrogens that seems to have prevented the pimples that seem to accompany bad periods. The overall texture of my skin looks and feels amazing from this cream. It is so luxurious and pleasant to use!

  8. You sold me on luxurious textures... I am all about luxury feel when it comes to moisturizers. I am not a fan of the tub... I have a few products I love that are tub creams, but it drives me nuts. But I would try it nonetheless.

    1. The luxurious texture is absolutely extraordinary! This is definitely one of the most lovely moisturizers that I have used. I definitely would suggest a little plastic spatula rather than sticking fingers in the jar, since you don't like creams in jars. I am trying to get much better about not sticking my fingers in jars of cream!
