In today's world, looking beautiful is one of society's top priorities. One of the most important aspects of beauty is proper skincare. Our skin is the canvas to the rest of our beauty regimen.
Whether our concern is having a flawless complexion, a glowing and vibrant color or a smooth texture, finding the best ways to keep our skin looking amazing is of utmost importance. Our skin demonstrates to the world the time, effort and value we take to look our best.
Beautiful skin should last a lifetime. External factors like pollution and internal factors like oxidative damage and poor diet often stress the skin. This leaves the skin dry and dull or oily and dirty. As part of the natural aging process, the skin begins to develop deep wrinkles and furrows around the forehead, brow and eyes. The skin loses its natural luster and color. Pentaxyl may help to decrease the appearance of deep wrinkles and furrows, and to support natural collagen production and help skin appear firm and thicker.
Pentaxyl is a proprietary blend of herbal extracts and the breakthrough formulas of the Matrixyl® Complex and Argireline, which reduce the appearance of wrinkles and furrows, help skin look thicker and firmer, and gives the skin a youthful glow. Pentaxyl has harnessed the age-fighting power of "bio-peptide" technology, with three age-fighting bio-peptides (1) Pamitoyl-Pentapeptide-3 (Matrixyl) (2) Palmitoyl Oligopeptide (3) Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 (Argireline). Peptides are a low molecular weight amino acid group that are building blocks of proteins that make up plants and animals. Palmitoyl_Pentapeptide-3 was discovered at National Institute of Health.
Pentaxyl may temporarily reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Skin will take on a more youthful appearance. While nothing can rewind time, Pentaxyl has been shown to support a beautiful, resilient, flawless look by fighting against the visible signs of aging.
Pentaxyl: Hype or the Real Deal???
After reading through the reviews of this product it spiked my curiosity as to was it hype or was it the real deal. For me, I have to say it is the real deal. I apply after evening shower and by morning my skin looks brighter and fresher than the day before. Everybody has to find what works for them and this product works for me and has been added to my daily skin care regimen.
Over-rated but still a nice product
I use Pentaxyl as recommended. So far it is doing a great job of moisturizing my skin, and I have seen improvements. However, the results are a far cry from positive comments I read before purchasing. I would still use Pentaxyl, but will be looking for something that lives up to its 'hype'.
This is my 2nd one,the last one last over 10 months,I using in the morning and at night noticeable great results.I love it.
It is my new daily essentials. Love the scent, texture, and result! My face and neck looks brighter, smoother, and tighten up. LOVE IT.

How much Pentaxyl do I need to use?
Pentaxyl is extremely concentrated and a little goes a long way. Typically, you only need an amount equal to the size of a dime to cover the facial area and about the size of a quarter when using Pentaxyl on stretch marks. These sizes may vary depending on the areas you are covering.
When will I begin to see results?
Pentaxyl's proprietary compounds may produce a visible reduction in the appearance of stretch marks (prominent because of their depth, length, and texture) and existing wrinkles in about 28 days.
Will Pentaxyl help with old wrinkles/stretch marks?
Absolutely! Pentaxyl can help no matter how long you've had your wrinkles/stretch marks - whether it's been 10 days or 10 years.
Can I use Pentaxyl on the wrinkles/circles underneath my eyes?
The correct way to apply Pentaxyl to the eye area is to softly massage it into the skin covering the orbital bone around the eye. Do not apply Pentaxyl directly underneath the eye or on top of the eyelid. Please use VitaShield Eye Cream which also contains Matrixyl.
Can I use Pentaxyl with other skincare products?
Pentaxyl can be used with virtually all other facial products. We suggest that you test any combination of skincare products on the inside of your forearm before applying it to your face. Of course, if you are using a prescription skincare product you should consult your physician. Remember, always apply Pentaxyl first, then if needed, you may apply a moisturizer or on top of Pentaxyl.
Does Pentaxyl work on all colors of skin?
